Well, this looks like just a dandy computer forum.... I think I might stay.

 

Okay, all stupidity out of the way, I have finally joined these forums after being kicked from Tom's Hardware, as 90% of them now are neckbeards who like saying how much better then you they are.

 

Here's my rig;

 

Phenom x6 1400T (unlocked 840T) at 4 GHz.....most of the time.

Biostar TA970

NZXT Respire T40

8GB ADATA XPG 1.0 DDR3-1600 9-9-9 RAM.

Gigabyte Windforce R9 270 (X unlockable, haven't tried yet)

Corsair TA750 PSU

Antec Eleven Hundred V2 case.

Adesso MKB-135B keyboard. (Mechanical FTW!)

Logitech M500 mouse.

 

Well, I hope I can enjoy these forums and can't wait to see you guys on here!


Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.

Welcome to the forums, and nice setup. Looks to be a very savvy performance/dollar ratio. Something I notice, issues getting a good stable clock out of the phenom? I was having issues with my Phenom II x4 945, was only able to get it up to 3.4 Ghz without locking under load(by load, I mean the cpu intense arma engine). I've since moved on to an intel processor.

Yeah. I found out it was my RAM that was limiting me. Once I got the ADATA stuff to replace my old OCZ stuff. Before I could only get to 3.2 stable. Also, you need to be crazy about voltage, too.

Yeah I kept stepping up the voltage slightly, trying to get a stable clock, I think the major drawback I was having was the 945 chip wasn't the best to OC. Others had issues with anything over 3.4 being stable aswell, and I was afraid to get TOO crazy with the voltage. I haven't really done much OC tweaking on my i5-4670k. Heck, I haven't even installed my corsair h80i into it yet either, just not enough time in the day....
