your combination like my rig FX 6100 can handle nicely HD6870 so far but the 6ghz maybe difficult to reach it with water cooling cuz U must be need voltage bumps around 1.6v for daily it is worse

I think 6Ghz is probably out of the question for 24/7 use with out a pretty beastly water-cooling setup, and even then I don't think it will be possible. Aim for 4.5-5.0Ghz and you should be pretty happy with the performance.

Hey, things we need to know, what is your budget? What type of build were you after, high end gaming rig, midrange gaming rig or just your everyday computer:toast:

I guess you haven't heard, AMD's bulldozer has aids:laugh:.....I recommend Intel's 1155 socket platform:)...an 2500K, cheap motherboard that supports 1155 CPU's :toast: (Too many too list:eek:).....the RAM you chose seems decent enough:toast:

I was going to recommend an 60GB SSD for Win7 and basic applications and a storage Drive bigger then 320GB but it seems your on a strict budget:toast:

You're going to burn that board getting anywhere near 4.6Ghz. Pretty sure it's rated for 125W max.

Hey ! guys thanks very much it was very caind from you to telling me the best ! ok so now as i get my CPU and mobo instaled in my bench i do some tests and i will post some sistem pics as i do always :D and yha JATownes thanks for recomending me OC and you know you right about that i beter stay on 4.5 Ghz or 5.0 Ghz depend on the how thing going on OC, i must be very precise with voltages to have it stable, and i have possibility to have one XFX HD 5870 OC insted of HD6870, i know that HD5870 is an top hight range graphic card so :toast:

chears guys! and thanks and tell me one more thing the power supply is good right ? :D

i has one PSU from Corsair 500W its good PSU but is not good for this sistem :/

You might want to consider i3 chips if your primary purpose is gaming.

I'd go Socket 1155 with an i5 (2500k if you want to OC) since it will outperform an FX-6100 any day of the week.

2500K is almost definitely out of the budget if he is aiming for FX6100. 2100 or 2120 is more sensible I think.

To expand off your post; here's a nice little review with the cpu's at stock.
http://ht4u.net/reviews/2011/amd_fx_6100_4100_review/



No offense; what you are going to see is smoke and flames coming from your board if you go anywhere above 4.4Ghz.
Agree 100%... power use is exponential after 4.2-4.4 ghz. I wouldn't go past 4.2.

if you're going to do it anyway just keep a camcorder running so you can post a video of your board burning up for youtube.

Same conclusion of OP primarily uses single thread programs.

Of course its better to stick with FX6100 if he is doing lots of multithreaded stuff.
