Updated AMD rig

Recommended Posts

Well my current rig is 5 years old and I am finally building a new setup. I will be reusing my PNY 9800 GTX+ I bought Dec. 2008, an OCZ 600W PSU and a WD Black 640gb HDD. Everything else is new.

 

Old Rig:

ASUS A8N SLI Premium

AMD 3800+ x2

Corsair XMS 2gb

PNY 9800 GTX+, before that an EVGA 7600GT

Tuniq Tower 120, before that stock AMD cooler

250gb and 640gb HDD

LG Optical DVD-RW

OCZ 600W, before that APEVIA 500 Watt

Couple 120mm Fans

Cooler Master Elite, before that APEVIA X-Navigator

 

New Rig

Asus Crosshair IV Formula

AMD 1090T

Mushkin 8gb 1600 mHz

PNY 9800 GTX+ (for now)

Noctua NH-D14

640 gb WD Black and Mushkin Castillo Deluxe 120gb SSD

LG Blu-ray drive

OCZ 600W

Noctua NF-S12B FLX x3 Exhaust Fans

Corsair 800D (3 exhaust on top, rear as intake and bottom intake)

 

I have recieved almost everything. Should have the SSD and Optical drive on Monday, then the build will begin :biggrin:

Wow you're going to crap yourself with a performance jump like that with anything CPU intensive!

As an AMD fanboy :) all I can say is WOW I LIKE IT. :)

 

I think the Ridgebacks are sweet, nice rig can't wait to see the performance scores and overclocking from it :)

I think you need to add a few 2TB drives in there. :P The new specs are going to be an impressive jump forward for you, like IVI said. You'll love the six core, it really is great knowing virtually nothing can stress it out. I still need to get another 4GB kit, you'll make me jealous with 8. :lol:

Well I have installed the motherboard and exhaust fans. I test fitted the Noctua Cooler against the memory and it clears all the dimms just fine. All my wiring for fans and case headers are finished. On Tuesday I will get my SSD and bluray drive. Then I will steal the PSU, hdd and GPU from my old rig and will finish it all up.

 

I am itching to finish. Some pics of the progress.

Finally all finished up. I did order a Lian Li fan bay because the case needs more air coming in. Should help my temps a bit. OC to ~4 ghz 1 1/2 on prime and was stable. 1462425.png

 

The SSD speed is insane. The CPU is hardly tasked and I can do so much without having to worry about bogging the system down.

 

I would say this build is a success. I will get some final pics up later.
