Same as my last build but with updated bios oc processor and new gpu benchmarks.
1-7-2015 Updated Added jetflo white led fan, R9 280x, and new pics!
that's an asus 750ti not a vapor 280x, what?
Are you going to overclock it?
I overclocked from 3.7 to 4.0 and a turbo max of 4.3 at the highest
Neat I am currently in the process of building an overclocking rig here is the link to what I have built so far:https://pcpartpicker.com/b/QJqkcf
AMD FTW!! +1 for you sir!
How well does the 860K perfom with the R9-280X? I'm looking into doing a full AMD, semi-small form factor build (in a Corsair Air 240) with the same CPU as you but with a BEEFY graphics card (something like an R9-290X or R9-295X2); I just wanted to know if you're experiencing any extreme bottlenecks with the setup you have right now.
Thanks in advance!
what cpu temps are you getting? i got my 8320 with that liquid cooler down to 10C at idol, i use HWmonitor.
Are you able to break 10C?
You do realize your idle temp is inaccurate right?
perhaps he stores his pc in the fridge to get below room temp idle temps
no i stayed up untill 1am in hamilton nz when my feet felt like icicles, with the window open i couldn't weight until i had finished doing my Xtreme cooling so i could close the window and jump into my warm bed...
+i doubt that both speed fan and HWmonitor are wrong
They most likely are, unfortunately. AM3+ CPUs (surprisingly I've seen very few of these temperature accuracy issues affecting the 9370 and 9590 though I might not have seen enough of those builds) have severe problems with reading proper temperatures. I think they have a weird offset that makes the displayed readings all wonky, while the CPU really knows exactly how hot it's running.
actually had a problem had to learn to plug the motor 3 pin into the cpu1 fan socket instead of the main push fan from the AIO and plug the fan into the system1 fan slot to everyone who is wondering. it fixed my problem of the fan constantly revving up and down pretty annoying. as for the little overclock I am hesitant to go further because awhile back some people had a problem with this particular motherboard and considered it unable to overclock but in my case I was able to OC easily once I had the correct bios. But Temps are tough to read with this setup.
