What's Up Yall!!?
AMD has sponsored me by allowing me to be in the "AMD Test Drive" program and sending me a complete APU computer build for free
I figured I'd share it here because I had 2 different build videos filmed for this computer and possibly another on the way as I further test the system and possibly add a discrete graphics card to it.
So far when I first built the system it didn't come with a heat sink so I used a spare Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.
The temps stayed decent at stock frequencies keeping it at idle around 28c-30c How ever when overclocked to 4.3Ghz the temps jumped quit significantly reaching towards 70c so I decided to leave it stock until I could upgrade the cooling.
The first parts list:
MSI M-ATX FM2-A85XMA-E35 Motherboard
8GB 2x4GB 1866 AMD performance memory
Kingston 60GB SSD
Fractal Design 650w PSU
Fractal Design Arc Midi R3 Case
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Cooler
So here is a link to the first build video:
And Build photos:
Then AMD sent me more goodies!
What games would you like seen tested on this machine, and or software. If I have it available I'll do my best to get it tested. and post my findings.
Thank you AMD for sponsoring this build!!
and thanks to iwalkwithedead for the custom logo!!
