My FX showed up back home (along with a new chip for my laptop)
when do you get to test it??
I am at a lost for words cdawall. My birthday is coming up soon can I have the fx proc? Can't wait to hear how it stacks up against current Fx cpu's
I get back stateside augustish and have not only my current build with the CM V10, but an AIO H100i, DICE tube and my watercooling setup of overkillness
(my watercooling setup)
ah i bet you cant wait!
wonder why AMD changed teh box, the tin was loads better!
that waterloop will do it justice im sure, are you going to dice it??
i may get one, hopefully theyll be here around august!
Probably going to try each cooling setup to see were it maxes out at. The box is the same for all WOF CPU's AMD sells. It has no cooler so thats likely why its not in a tin.
What is the normal stepping for FX chips everyone has? The one on mine is FA 1317PGS which puts this as a very recent chip diffused in April of this year. I have never gotten a chip that close to purchase. There must have been some updates with processes, I was expecting a late 2012 chip.
found it: OR-C0 (Orochi)
p.s this weekend is for benching the shit out of my chip on water
It will be printed on the top of your CPU have to pull the HSF to get it.
oh not stepping ya mean batch number??
or is there another stepping code??
Yea I guess it would be batch number. 6 months of 12's are kicking my ass lol. Off to bed for me.
ive got to post this here, well because its pretty unbeatable (not mine) an overclocking friend that we kind of compete against each other.
and i got a fairly decent firestrike physics score
Oh, too much work
I posted my stepping number somewhere on the forum, just don't remember. I do have to admit, what ever stepping I have must be a great one, because it OC's quite nice with super high bus speed with low voltage requirement.
my 8320 has this printed
FX-9590 review here:
Haven't read it yet
Looses all synthetic benchmarks as per usual with any amd, but competes evenly with email@example.com in games.
i need one of these XD
Honest opinions needed people. I'm looking to get a new rig together in the next couple of months. It's sole purpose is for gaming @1080p (all types of games) and I'm trying to decide on which platform I should build it. To all you highly clocked FX 83** users, if you had the budget or choice again, would you go intel (ie haswell) or has the FX performed adequately in everything you have thrown at it?
Are there any particular games you have found it lacking in? or any regrets? What have been the positives?
Remember, just good honest thoughts on the matter please, I'm open to either AMD or Intel and I just prefer to go by what people have experienced with everyday usage rather than numbers in a benchmark. Thanks and
What games are you planning on playing. For the most part a well clocked FX chip wont have a single issue playing games at 1080P.
I play literally everything from flight sims to Minecraft, rpgs, shooters, sports, mmos etc. I want consistency throughout and I'd be looking to go high end with the chosen parts on either platform but obviously a saved buck or two would be ideal rather than just splurging the cash on excessive or overkill components.
The only games with major issues are games like skyrim. Which is horribly coded.
Need some help ocing
How so? Purely reduced fps or other anomalies?
It doesn't perform as well as the similarily priced Intel chip. Not saying the game is not playable, but if you think you need 1000FPS in every game an FX probably isn't for you.
