For this run it pulled 608W at the most from the wall.

4.75ghz with 2X 6850's overclocked to 975mhz on the core.
Games never use over 500W tho.

You also have to factory in the efficiency of your PSU, Which for me would mean I was only using 486.4W from my components

How do you check how much wattage your PC is using?

and changed the CPU voltaged to 1.46v
You think I should put the NB up to 2500mhz?

Gratz man! Now that you found your "sweet spot" how do you like it?! Quite a difference....

I have a new question for all...

I want outstanding preformance AND graphics. Here is what I am currently working with;

HAF 912 Cooler Master Tower
MSI 970-45G motherboard
AMD Bulldozer FX4100 3.6GHZ(OC'd at 4.6GHz)
Kingston 1600Mhz DDR3 Dual channel 4gb X 2 (Hyper X)
AMD Radeon HD 6850 (OC'd to 850 mhz)
WD 500GB Hard Drive
600W Power Supply

Currently running pretty nice, but there's always room to improve and I have a couple hundred bucks to sink into what's becomming my personal best for gaming experience.

My question;
Do I upgrade to an FX8210
or do I crossfire my Radeon HD 6850

What out of the two options will supply ultimate graphics and preformance. Thank you in advance.

second 6850 is probably a better bet, as a 8120 would almost certainly kill your board.

Thank you for the advice, I have pre-paid the 6850 and crossfire cable but wanted to be sure that was the best option.

Just curious, Does it run at higher temps? How would it kill my board?

Thanx

It does require more power from a 4100 to a 8120 thats for sure. Also I wanted to say, My 6850 came with a crossfire cable. But if you are not sure then order it. I have an h100 cpu cooler and have push pull with 4x134cfm ultra kaze fans and I still get to 50C with only 1.3875-1.4volts under load. So if you want a good overclock on it, which you will, then you will need excellent cooling and a board with great components like vrm's and mofsets and heatsinks and gold caps etc... sounds like im hookin up a car haha. Enjoy that 2nd 6850, It will beat out a hd6950 and thats pretty quick.

Then you just have to overclock it to around this
