LOL good point, Guess I might be returning it soon haha, thankfully frys has no restocking fee and the corsair lineup of psu's at the lowest price biggrin.gif

I have to get this thread back to the way I like it lol, I want the newest post first and can't seem to find the switch for that option!!!


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:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/46-Gallon-Bow-Front-Aquarium-/180754190739?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a15ca1193

5 gallon coffee table fish tank, can even have the pc on top lol:

practical 10gallon tank (what i would probably try)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Basic-Aquarium-Glass-Fish-tank-empty-10-gallon-/160681431473?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25695c11b1

or for those of us on a budget biggrin.gif

Hi

I noticed you have BIOS version 0813 listed there and was wondering if that was some soft of update to the beta BIOS version 0810 which is listed on the Asus USA download site.

Tnx

Hey Brad--

Yeah your right the psu isnt enough, in a link below they had the 8150 at 4.8Ghz and system had a gtx590, durring prime small FFT test they pulled 580WATTS!!! Thats with the gpu's obviously not being used much at all either! I will deffinetly be returning the ax850 for a ax1200, I really want to give the fx-series another try, just time to step everything up.

I hate to post on threads that I have nothing that they are talking about, but I would love to know what they are using in those reviews to test peak wattage. I'm thinking now that maybe the instability of my OC's was my power supply overloaded, since it is only a 650W PSU. you guys have any ideas for programs to check this?

I have wanted to get one but home depot and lowes sell these plugs that go on your wall outlet, it reads the power consumption of whatever is pluged into it, they are cheap from what people told me, all this psu talk I think im gonna get one this week.

But yeah dude 580watts on prime testing, cpu watts might go down a bit durring gaming since prime is a killer but now the gpu kicks in thus that 580watt consumption in those tests will become a lot higher depending on the video card(s) used.

Its called "Kill A Watt" you can find them online for around $20 USD. Its a basic version of what testers use.... now this reads actuall AC power usage, not what your PSU is using. Since no PSU is 100% efficiant, you will be pulling more watts at the outlet that your PC us using on the DC side.

Example, you have a 1000w PSU that is rated 80% (standard for most PSUs now a days) and your rig pulls every bit of that. At the wall you could be pulling up to 1200w. now you should never pull 100% of any PSU, but this was just an example and thouse numbers make for easy maths ^.^
