Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Sturdy
-Dust filters on the front and bottom
-2 fans
-Great space, though you should remove the pointless HDD case in the middle and put your SSD case on top of the bottom one. You'll get better air distribution.
-Everything stays nice and cool

Cons: -At $50 I expected more from it. First of all every other case at this price is painted on the interior and just looks better in general, as well as having USB 3.0 on the front
-No usb 3.0
-No filters on the side
-Noisy fans

Other Thoughts: I bought another 140mm fan with a filter for the side and together all the fans make the case very loud, though I don't care too much about that.

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great BIOS software
-Great for overclocking
-Very nice heatsinks/ temperature control
-3 x 2.0 PCIe (16x)

Cons: -The "PSU" fan isn't controlled from BIOS so you need a software to control that fan (which probably be your back exhaust fan)
-The bottom PCIe slot will not fit bigger GPUs unfortunately, or they will sit right on the PSU which is terrible for heat distribution and exhaust. I recommend you use the middle slot for your card.

AMD FX-6350 Vishera 6-Core 3.9 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD6350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -3.9ghz, 6 core (Bulldozer modules =/= hyperthreading), 6mb L2 and 8mb L3 cache
-No real need to overclock at 3.9 unless you're doing something CPU intensive, and since most games are GPU dependent you'll be set at 3.9
-Will not bottleneck any GPU
-Came with Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

Cons: -The stock fan is garbage and you will definitely need to buy a new one
-With the aftermarket cooler this processor stays at a constant 20C for me on idle and no higher than mid 30s/ low 40s when playing games

Other Thoughts: Recommended for budget builds. If you're gonna overclock you might as well get the 6300 though.
