second link, first looks a bit childish to me.
So I have been following since the days of yore and apparently I have a ton of reading to catch up on. I am now OC'd to around 4.0 in Win 8.1 using the D.O.C.P. in my Asus M5A99X Revo Board (original, not Rev 2.0 which apparently is better) so am wanting to know what all y'all have done to OC. I know each is different and I am using the latest BIOS from Asus for this board (would have been bad ass if someone had made a custom BIOS like they did for the original Crosshair V).
Any tips, help is appreciated. I have it on a Custom EK 240 RAD. I guess I should take a pic of this huh, lol.
Pip I like the first better, aesthetically, but the second has the rubber grommets for cable management so I would go with that one. Although personally, white is sexy I am not fond of the red lines on the second.
What are your guys view on OS ? Cant decide between 8 or 7
Same here ive codes for both but im on 7 atm 8 caused some agro or it might just have been me.
if metro and apps and etc never existed i would pick 8 without a 2nd thought, installed start8 but still a find a few things annoying but overall i find it very smooth and i like the sharp square edges, the colors and uses less ram too
I had a few actual issues and nothing overclocked as high odd and I do intend to retry it soon enough.
It's finally that time
they out for real?!
nothing on AMD site
ordered me a 9370.
funny AMD havent got it in their shops or on any release info yet.
is this what happens?
whats the wattage in AMD FX-9370 ?
220watt- here's some additional info:
Thats the reason why i wont be getting on lol, imagine the temps overclocking that and stress testing it on full load
I have a couple of different ways to cool it depending on my mood anything from my trusty modded Coolermaster V10 (which I will hit 5ghz on thank you), H100i or a full watercooling loop.
I must have but that 829 proc is looking good. Nice to see them try and shoot back up on Intel prices. BTW, any info for my question from a few days ago or is it just meh not worth going higher?
As to the question, I prefer Windows 8. The metro screen doesn't bother me especially when I boot passed it.
ive gotten used to win8 now, feels trendy and clean.
i have nothing on my desktop apart the recycle bin and a pretty picture!
it boosts 3 times faster than 7 and seems less buggy! i hardly ever get a lock up or crash due to software. on 7 it just liked to mess around a lot!
That was quick to bad I wont be back to Texas until at least August (still deployed)
Here is my new Toy (FX 8320), default clocks and under volted to 1.3v.
Using a basic Xigmatek D.T.H cooler with 90mm fan.
Add me to this club
been gaming for over 2 hrs @ 4 ghz with 1.3v, seems to be stable. This thing runs hot!!!
What's it kicking up to temp wise?
46c core temps.
right now not so good cooler, I have to pull out the big ass cooler from another machine to cool this sucker.
That's not bad for full load temps on a 125w chip...
I was only playing COD4, so its not even using 4 cores and the CPU never went over 20%.
So if I play BF3 which uses all cores it might go higher.
Going to MC now to see if I can pick up a better cooler.
