for you build like that you really shouldn't need more than like 250w

unless he is using some generic 400w unit that can only output like 100w safely....

@The Finnusn, how are you liking the FX-4100??
post #1334 of 8112
I've just played Mass Effect 2 and WOW on it so far. Testing it tomorrow with BF3. So far though, it's run without a hitch.

Nice, I'm thinking I'm gonna get one and push the clocks up a little. I've been through so many benchmarks my brain hurts! I just can't see the point of spending R600.00 more on the FX-6100 when in gaming benchmarks the FX-4100 is sometimes faster...I don't render or do other things like that, so the other benchmarks don't really mean much to me...

No I just need to settle on a board, I thought I'd get the MSI 990FXA-GD65, but some people say MSI boards aren't so good as far as the power circuits go...Pitty because it's on special right now!

Quick question to some other BD owners. Have any of you been able to play Portal 2, Deux Ex: HR, Total War: Shogun 2, Saints Row: The Third or any of these "AMD sponsored" games via steam? I was greeted with the notorious bsod that consistently happens whenever I tried to launch SR:TT last night, after doing some research it seems that BD is to blame here as the only systems it is happening on is anyone using an FX chip, with all different types of boards, cards, drivers, and bios, etc.

It's a bug with the DRM that is present in these specific games when using a BD proc.

A beta BIOS was released for the asus crosshair V that supposedly fixes it. I'm not sure if anything was done about the gigabyte board you own though? AMD and Steam are both aware of it and are working towards fixing it though, so it's a waiting game for now.

Also the BSOD occurs on LOTR: War in the north.
