Awesome monitors, amazing CPU and GPU. Good amount of RAM and very large storage space.
quad core doesnt bottleneck any less. you just need MOAR CLOCKS, just like i do.
i went 3.6GHz quad to 3.8GHz dual... and stuff got faster. i guess ATI drivers arent optimised for quads.
ok rate my now all ordered HTPC
i have 2 sets of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145175

I agree I could use a better PSU. The IDE is a throwback, I Didn't feel like installing windows on my raid array.
As for the motherboard... since when is a 1 year old mother board "old"? It's an AM2+ Board with HT 3.0, PCIe 2.0 and perfectly well supports the top of the line Phenom II processors. The only newer series of boards are the AM3's that use DDR3 and I'm sorry I'm not going to trash 8 GB of perfectly good memory just so I can switch to DDR3.
@cdawall in case you missed it oh and thats for both rigs
8/10 for you Jr, great overclock . but it's starting to get to be time for a cpu and/or gpu upgrade.
Ohh no no no ..
I'm just getting started with this cpu. Does 4Ghz @ 1.28v. as far as a gpu looking at going SLI.
LMAO... and for what i have that pleasure?
Everything high end, what i need to say ?? Nice CPU and a even better CPU Oc result. The 4870x2 is the current best single card solution. Maybe 2x500gb Hard drives in raid 0 would do better but we all know it is a minor issue... 9.5 out 10. Congratulations
stefanels rig is run off the blood of innocents and lost virgins.
LOL i wouldn't say it better
7.5/10, nice older machine. I would have given you a much worse score if not for the 4980
hahahaha, you gotta go find your own!!
Can't fault anything really. As long as 3gig of ram is enough for you, 10/10
Awesome clocks on that cpu too!
im running 5gb, just not in the specs got a corsair dual channel kit in there too!
9.5/10 for you, although 8800 is still great, a better card will rock in your rig
Ah nice. Does it run in tri-channel mode with 5 slots filled?
Thanks. Yeah, i'm hoping to get a GTX260 soon, but money is a bit tight at the moment so gotta make the best of what i got and hope i don't cook anything!
not sure, CPUz says it does. A GTX 260 in your rig would make it a 10 in my eyes
Wow dude, my new system pales in comparison to yours.... I was proud of mine for a moment there...
you have a bad ass rig too! how are those dual 4890's?
What's my rig with a 275
and you guys know what Cygnus is right? The constellation that Deneb is from, which is the core of the 45nm AMD Phenom II's. I thought it was pretty clever
dude you lost me there
anyways your rig 9.5/10 bro, just a quad would top off your rig
he has a deneb core, so he made an astronomy joke.
figured it was something like that, but still got lost
Nice Rig 10/10 its hard not to give ten to corei7... upgraded my rig a bit
