I finally got it.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I got my new PSU to power my 6990. I installed it and overclocked my 1090t to 4ghz. I used MSI afterburner to push the 6990 to 1000/1400. So far its been glorious, but I feel I might be bottlenecking.

thoughts?

update:

1000/1400 is not fully stable. Need to do some tweaking.

SSD is the biggest boost in performance EVER. And I'm talking in stuff that feels like forever... like loading screens, or opening My Computer. I hate that 1-2 second delay when I click the Computer icon in the tray... not no more

Beautiful AMD powered rig btw, my Q9550 does the job but is jealous

Are you still at stock voltage? Bump the voltage up one notch if you are, you might gain stability. Congrats.

Update: got it stable, but I have to crank the fan. It stays at 950/1400 for now.

Now once I get a SSD and a Bulldozer, I will be content. Some better liquid cooling wouldn't hurt either. I could crank it to 1000/1500 I bet.

You bet I will. Only downside is the power bill shooting up.

Also, I wanna mention that my case moves so much air it actually cools my room. I had to put on sweatpants.
