My First AMD build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Built a few amd systems in the past, this is the first amd system I've built for myself.
And since I have an ego, I thought I would show it off

Stage 1 - http://www.overclock.net/album.php?albumid=4353

Stage 2 - http://www.overclock.net/album.php?albumid=4352

There will be a stage 3, that'll be when the x8 comes out. That'll be the final upgrade, unless I decide to upgrade the ram.

No Idea. No reason why you shouldn't show off the rig and your effort. I can appreciate that.

One thing I noticed is you have 4 drives in Raid 0. I would change that to Raid 5. Performance will be similar but you will have a parity disk for redundancy. Raid 0 means if you lose any one disk you lose the lot.

I thought about doing that, I guess I should have tested it first. I tried it on my last system with 3 drives there was a drop in performance.
Next time I have a chance I'll test out raid5 with this setup and check out the performance. For now I have a 1TB external drive for backups
so I'm not overly worried if it fails. It'll be an inconvenience but I'll still have backups.

Oh and out of curiosity how did you manage to unlock the 3rd core on your x2,

Very easy to do on our mobo. In bios got to Advanced, CPU configuration, set asus core unlocker to enabled. You then have options to lock or unlock individual cores if needed.

In my case all cores unlocked, but the 4th core was no good and couldn't successfully boot so I disabled that individual core.

too easy. I built a couple of x3 systems awhile back. I should have attempted to unlock the 4th core, oh well.
pretty sweet deal though an extra core for no extra cost
