That looks like a pretty capable system and probably not too pricey. Nice build.
I'm kind of teed off though. My parts were suppose to arrive today and somehow all of the them got returned to senders and there from different places. Even my GPU was delayed
Maybe you were drunk when you ordered and got the wrong address. Seriously though that's a bummer.
More or less did the same here too - Picked up an i7 2600K with an ASRock OC Formula board to toy around with.
Sweet bet it was a good deal! This new Intel BIOS is a bit to wrap my head around but I'm getting there.
Few parts arrived today
Nice gotta love new stuff ! What's the pad for?? Water on the GPU ?
Thermal pad for GPU
Cleaned and rearranged my rads today. Still waiting on my tubing though as its the last piece I need.
Subscribed, can't wait to play with the settings on my, been running it on stock. Still waiting for the cpu cooler and new chassy to arrive, atleast I can sub here
That can be a problem with the holiday season. I'm still waiting on some ram I picked up. I really hope it shows up today.
Cool so far I've seen one of the new Giga UD3 rev4 boards and it appears that they finally listened and corrected some of the limitations the rev3s had.
It will be here today as it made it to my local post office yesterday. So excited to finally redo my loop and doing it right.
Cool beans bud. It's always fun to sit back and watch a job well done. I've been banging my head with this 4770k. If someone says Aida64 stability test is sufficient , I think they're mistaken. I could do 4.7 with aida and just getting by at 4.5 with P95. My firdt clue wad trying to run F@H. It kept crashing on me. So I ran Aida for 6.5hrs and still FH would crash. So I backed down my clock to get Prime to run and it ran for 10 hrs overnight now trying to get the 2400 memory stable with the 4.5 clock and all seems good so far.
So you got a bad clocker
Yeah, P95 all the way. I've had OCs stable through LinX, OCCT, and IBT that fail P95 in minutes.
Maybe not, he did say that he's learning all the new Intel overclocking options. Could just be a bad voltage setting.
hello guys and best wishes for coming year!
there is some update for my newby oc history.
yesterday i boght some awesome cooling stuff
and now i got this
but not stable still, and 4800 stable.can i get more of my cpu at this time how do u think?
Nice but I don't see you getting 5GHz stable on a 8320 below 1.55v and not on air bud.
it's not so necessary, i'm just curious. btw, do u guys know whould it be a new generation for am3+ socket family from amd? someone said yes like it's oblivious but no i can get no specific information, only fm2+ next year
AM3+ is the final CPU socket from AMD, but they're going to support it through 2014 and probably into 2015. After AM3+ is retired, however, AMD will only make APUs (and GPUs, of course).
I hope I've got a miracle chip haha.. Can't wait for my CM N600 (one with the led and fan controller). As for the cpu cooler, debating on the ancient Hyper 212 Evo or the new kid on the block Deep Cool Ice Blade Pro v2.0, all of this will be from the next paycheck haha a few more weeks to go!
Yeah it has 2 red lit up lines down the left side, I think it would be cool if they went all the way round. You can turn it off in the bios. There is power button on the board with a really bright white led that's kind of annoying.
I still haven't gotten to play with it in the cold. Once I finish getting moved I will tho
@Johan45 what do you use for antifreeze?
I should have known better, the Intel guys are always recommending IBT and Aida, but I wasted a whole F-ing day backtracking . I think they don't like to punish their CPUs like that. That's the only reason I could see that kind of recommendation.
It sits at 4.5 now, I have the ram bck to 2400 and the cache up to 4300. It will go faster but my cooling can't take it. These Hazwell chips have a lot of similarities with the FX. By that I mean heat and the IMC can be a bit touchy. You're right about the voltages Random there are a lot more options than the AMDs have. Plus the VRM is on the die so you have to accomodate for that as well.
I just use regular long life antifreeze that you'd buy for a car.
My new/used ram finally showed up and is looking quite promising. Didn't have a lot of play time but took them for a short walk with the 9370 last night. They're 4x2G G.Skill ECO 1600 right now I'm good at 7-9-7-24 @ 2000
Oh OK. I'll probly do that. I'm slightly paranoid about freezing plus then I could go out when its really cold.
Nice sticks Johan... You must be trying to find a set to catch me with.
Looks like a good set - I really need to do some RAM shopping myself.
