What if Elvin was female?
posted October 14, 2014 07:54 PM

It's for everything

Ended up getting M550 instead of the M500 and HIS mini ICEQ r9 285 instead of the vertex3d. The HIS is around 30 euros cheaper, though arquably with a lot worse cooling than saphire or even vertex. And the M550 was basically the same price for a lot better SSD.

Ended up spending 960 euros on it.

I'm expecting it to arrive in two weeks or so.

Now I wonder what kind of case I want to make for it, if any...

Lo and behold, it is stable!






It actually takes WAY less power than I though. Heats up the socket and VRM like a furnace though. Had to put one fan for the VRM and if I wanted to get it higher I'd need to raise the volts some more, which would heat up the socket, which would cause thermal throttling.
Can't put a fan for the backside of the socket in my current case though.
But seeing as 4,8 is pretty much water territory I'm cool with it

Overall, fx-9590 level performance from a fx-8320 is worth about 140 euros of cost savings

AMD FX Series FX-8320 (@4,7 GHz, 224MHz FSB, 1,425V)
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 rev 3.0 (FEg)
Phanteks PH-TC14PE-OR (two stock fans)
16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro Series DDR3-1866 CL9 Dual Kit (2x8GB, 1792MHz, 9-10-9-27, 1,45V)
512GB Crucial M550
500GB Western Digital Caviar Black
850Watt Corsair CS850M ATX Semi-Modular
HIS mini ICEQ R9 285 OC(1050MHz, 1550 MHz, +20mV)

Plus used the stock cooler fan from the boxed 8320 for cooling the VRM. I need to find/make a case where I can have adequate cooling for the rear of the socket though. I was limited in my overclock due to thermal throttling because the socket temps get too high under full load if I go any higher.

I have good cooling on it though. And I kind of know what I'm doing. It tends to help ^^

Can probably get it to 4,9-5,0 when I decide what I want to do with my back cooling.

Now, it still loses in gaming performance to any overclocked i5/7 that is even remotely modern. But then again, I payed 100 for it +30 for the cooler so...


I might have gotten a bad video card though, will see. I get some flickering in firefox with some embedded picture content, specifically the spoilered ones that are originally hidden. Might be just win10 and compatibitlity issues too, will see with time.

Yup, you can download the technical preview for free.

Ended up ordering fractal design arc XL case after all.
Figured the fans alone would cost me almost half if I were to build my own so isn't really worth it.

That's a pretty good life time for a PSU if that's your main computer.

Yeah, why would you want one though?
You can get a 30gb ssd and a 2tb hd for the same price.

*clever ruse to make Joonas suggest me something superior*

Please link techpriest-sama-sensei.

Edit:

I got charmed by the presentation of it being cheaper than those two seperately,  but if it's not I don't see the point either...  saving space maybe.. not really an issue.

Looking at an ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0, Socket-AM3+ motherboard for a FX-8350 cpu.

Good choice of MB for the price? 'bout 116 euro

Are you going to overclock? If not, yes. If yes, no.

Well, not to any insane degree, but yes some lighter overclocking on the CPU at least.

Aww but I heard such good **** about it.

It's not snow or anything but it has 6+2 power phasing, which is important if you want to overclock. Especially on FX series CPUs that are very power hungry.

The cooling on it is really good though.


Totally okay for slight overclocks though.
Buuuut why would you want that one when you can get same for cheaper in Gigabyte? I think I payed 80-90 euro for my Gigabyte. The 25 more for the asus seems a little too high a premium to pay.

Weeell I read some scary **** about rev versions earlier than 5 or something on that card being bad for fx-8350,  and with mixed batches making it hard to know which rev you actually got.

Maybe you can just BIOS update it I dunno. Was just something that made me cautious.

Did find the UD-5 version of your card for about the same price though so I got that going for me... still planning phase.
