Willup, nice looking build!! I know myself and a few others on thiss thread would be interested to know what water blocks you have chosen to use, and weather you have recorded before/after temps
post #2745 of 10135
I have always been stubborn and hardheaded but Im so glad i lI liistened to the guys when they said get a sabertooth. This is the easiest board i have ever worked with. I have never really overclocked but i did buy good parts and with no tweaking my fx-8120 was auto overclocked to 3.8- 3.9 automatic! NO issues whatsoever. I did a lot of reading in this forum and if you get one these guys are the best in terms of helping out. That has never happened to me before OCN. I have been building computers for 17 years. oh and even tho im on a bulldozer I feel that there is a lot of overclocking to do. Take it for what its worth... oh and 5 year warranty.
btw newegg has a combo sale on sabertooth with a 8120 for 299 if that interests you. Not everyone wants a 8120. either way good luck. if you did get one you have the benifit of a lot of questions , issues solved already in the thread.
