But back to the power thing, I am pretty sure the 850 is not big enough to OC it past 4.8ghz with all the other things I got tugging on it already!
I think I am going to fix up that 1000watt in the next few days and see for sure if the 1000 alone can pull it off
I still am thinking of grabbing a 1200watt just because but as I want so many things right now and not enough cash to get it all
I will do the old stuff first, I wish I was made of money lol!!!! I don't see where I need over 4.8 right now, BUT it does get much better
everything the higher this thing goes, when at 5ghz (before the PSU would shut it down) I was beating the I7 2600K's butt
I was even getting great numbers against the 980X so if I wanted to and could figure out how to cool this chip, I think it would beat all of them with ease
Just needs some TLC on keeping it cool and feeding it with a power plant lol like a 1000watt or better
Nice dude, What benchmarks are you using? Also how has it done in gaming for you? Any fps increase? for curiosity sake any wprime numbers for 8 cores?
I know this would be such a bad thing to say BUT what if you took a gpu out just for the sake of cooling the cpu to see if you can get it to stay cool? Then put the other gpu back in and lower clocks till you can upgrade cooling.
I wish I had space for this but Im thinking of how I can make use with a larger resivour, like fish tank larger. Fishtanks usually look nice so it wouldnt be an eyesore (of course no fish inside lol) and with that large source of water could take A LONG time before it got warm, ambient room temp would help cool it further than what the radiators could do too.
Just an example 46gallon, super nice looking:
5 gallon coffee table fish tank, can even have the pc on top lol:
practical 10gallon tank (what i would probably try)
or for those of us on a budget
