System Name the other woman (thats what my wife calls it)
Processor AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition Agena 2.50GHz
Motherboard Biostar TA790GX 128m
Cooling OEM-9850 fan & sink-added Thermaltake NB cooler with fan
Memory 8gb Corsair Dominator XMS2 1066MHz
Video Card(s) Visiontek Radeon X850 Xt
Storage Various size Seagate 7200.11's
Display(s) Several, about 20- today its a pair of Optiquest Q71's
Case Antec NSK4400 with extra self made HD fan
Audio Device(s) Asus Xonar DX 7.1 pcie and some Koss pro 4aa's
Power Supply OCZ / StealthXStream 600watt
Software Windows 7 Professional Retail 64 bit.
Benchmark Scores cool n quiet disabled- everything full up at 2.6ghz and ht at 2200. Ram at 2.2v
those of you looking, tried three mobos with the gx790 sb 750 combo- asus msi & biostar.
for what i do i need stability and i still favor biostar. the ta790gx 128m is a super stable and ive oc'd my 9850 to 3.1 stable boot and run on plain air with no problems anywhere.

but if budget was not an issue and i was building a clocker- id build a DFI. ive seen two that a friend of mine had and they are a cut above the rest.;) just straight awesome boards, and well constructed boards, fiber not resin boards. theres a big difference, 95% of virtually all mobos are built on resin boards and wont take as much heat or BS.

the 780 and sb 700 combination runs hot- real hot for no good reason, and the drive handling is not as good - cant speak for any raid, cant run raid. make sure if you are going to run the 790gx that you also run the sb750. cant remember who posted that besides me but ill back it up.

nice build shadowfold :toast: - ill be watching for more

Got the new Scythes put in, freaking amazing, dropped my idle temp alone by like 10 degrees. My load temp, by a freaking ton, probably 15c!

Here's at Idle.

And here's my wicked load temps, so awesome!
http://www4.picturepush.com/photo/a/1575912/1024/Computer/New-Fans-Load-Temps.png

No time to clock the crap out of it today, tomorrow will be fun!

NICE!!! :toast: Look forward to seeing some clocks tomorrow. :D Congrats.

@shadow: If you have the funds, I would recommend the DFI 790FXb-M2RSH, this board is amazing, and the stock NB/Mosfet cooler is pretty good. Unless you want DDR3, but I still would recomment the DFI. (the M4A79 is awesome too though.)

Hey cdawall how do you determine the chips used on a memory kit (without buying and tearing the spreaders off)?

Curious what chips are used on the OCZ Reaper 2x2GB DDR3-1333 kit. OCZ3RPR13334GK
D9JNL same as mine

set the voltage to 2.2v and the clocks to 1200 5-5-5-15 and hope it boots back up

Yea, why would you mess with the bus in the first place? Memory speed?

OKOKOKOK. I'm gonna go find my USB drive and downgrade my bios. If I get the 4th core, I can break 10k in 3dmark Vantage. I'm sitting at 9.8k right now.

Nope just 1.6. The only bad thing I can see hapening with 1.0 is my overclock will suck. But I will only need like 3ghz for 10k. The cores make a huge difference.

Actually I will try 1.1
