I found a fan for my VRM but at this time I may not really need it so it is in there plugged up for what its worth. Oddball Fan!

It is the same as this one but it only has two mounting screws. So I have one screw holding it till I get a better fan. 4CM rated Silent

the fan you posted a pic of only has 2 screws...the other 2 are for the heatsink to the mobo. i ran that mobo (soyo dragon kt400) and the fan was garbage...sleeve bearing that squealed like crazy. lubing it only lasted a month or so and it would start again

blast from the past...lol

The one I have is black and a better build then that clear one, but the mount is the same with 2 screws.

But i guess sooner or later i should try ASUS again...
That's very true. The other day i was browsing through reviews of the 8320E and 8370E and i noticed exactly that you say. That despite the clock penalty, they were usually within about 3 fps from an 8350 in the game benchmarks. Same for 8370 compared to 9590. They must be newer, better coded games, so that clock difference doesn't pay off as one would expect, like you say.

Yeah, people just don't "get" how to build an AMD rig. You start with the case and work your way in because the CPU is the least important part. The PSU and motherboard are much more important. Then comes cooling as it doesn't make sense to go AMD if one doesn't OC it and that brings it right back to the case and its fans.

Then take the money saved by going with the less expensive CPU and put it into a better video card. I accidentally stayed up all night playing The Witcher 3 and somewhere in there i took this screenie.


Guess where my bottleneck is?

Guess where my bottleneck is?

I had relatively low CPU usage in Crysis 3 too. This program solved the problem and now my CPU hits 100% and i get around 10 frames more with same settings!

Download timer resolution from this site: http://120hz.net/showthread.php?1514-Crysis-3-30-FPS-Boost-FPS-Cap-Removal!-(1080p-cam-video)&p=21396

Install it and set timer resolution range to max. Now the CPU is capable of rendering clips faster and send them to the GPU which results in higher frames.

I haven't tried this with other games just yet but it seems logical that it works with every game.

Okay guys, sorry to go offtopic but here's the deal. I'm making the choice today. Aura 970 for 110EUR or Sabertooth R3.0 for 220EUR.

How much would I lose if I go to Aura? I'm aiming for 4.7GHz that I achieved on the old Sabertooth R2.0 easily. I use a GTX970.

And can I OC NB on the 970 series or its just good for 990fx?

Thanks a bunch, your comments of comparison are welcome.

After using 970 chip boards previously, I would never ever recommend them. At all.
For a super cheap web browser or office PC, then maybe. But for anything else, buy a 990 or go Intel.

Can you give me a reason? I can see why not to get a cheap one, but this one is 7+1 phases and it's recommended by a lot of people as far as I can see?

If you have the money go Sabertooth R3.0 you won't be disappointed.

you might get away with the same overclock on the 970 aura but for everyday usage i would recommend the Sabertooth over anything.

It has longer warranty, better audio, M.2 slot basically the same as the aura only its better.
