now both cards run about 34 35 idle and max temp on 3dmark 11 using gpuz to record temps touched 50c a few times but mostly under that. reseating and using the new tim with the fans made a nice improvement. While i like the fans they give you the sp120 quiet fans running at 1450 rpm made a decent difference. one card was in the mid 60;s before. While this is not a cpu it should have the same effect.
hope this helps. I almost went with the faster fans but keeping it quiet was my goal.
Edit : btw asetek makes the kits for the 620 and the thermaltake but the fans are different. Im not sure if the pump speed changes with the larger rad or not. but i have a few of these and they look identical. I have yet to check the pcbs on the pumps.

The TK Backplate might have been the issue with the Water Pro, same with all the Corsair units having issues with the ASRock FM2A75M-ITX.

Noctua states right on their website that this board isn't compatible with their coolers at all. So I'm hoping one of these will work and keep the temps to levels that I would consider normal I hope.

most of my parts came in today even the canceled tiger direct 6970 argh. canceled within 1-2 hours of posting in the early am. I rarely cancel an order but its tough to make a choice in a few seconds when thousands of people are buying the same types of items.

im hoping to get the fm2 up and running completed in a few days but my priority is on the second box im building..
On the fm2 im trying to cool the gpu and the cpu on the a10. ill know more about temps later on this week.
. ha i always forget the little things like extra screws of different lenght..
if anyone is using the asetek, or thermaltake units the screws are 6/32 x 1 1/4 for a 25mm fan. In the haf 932 advanced the back fan screws need to be a tad longer to make it to the rad. heads up. I didnt have that issue with the haf 922.

pulled the trigger and bought a trinity system biggrin.gif

Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H
A10-5800k
samsung green 30nm 8GB 1600 DDR3 (with ability to oc really well)
corsair 450w psu (may change in future as its 21-22db at minimal and not rated)
fractal design define mini case

cant wait, although il have to as its a Christmas present to myself redface.gif

the build will be a raid-z server / htpc front end with some light gaming ( hence the gigabyte with its 8 6g sata ports on an matx!) i will post a thread in the htpc section once its built, perhaps a bit over the top for server duties but the idle is actually decent on the a10 at about 37w pre-undervolt idle so its actually quite a good allround chip for cheaper system builds

My A8-5600K is using a cooler master hyper 212 plus heatsink. Its currently running at 4.3ghz @ 1.4v under load. I'm wondering if anyone knows what kind of temps would be normal when under load?

I have a hyper tx3 on mine in my media center....and I am just running 4.2 @ 1.4 volts...and I think my load temps are like 46°....not sure will check tomorrow

I'll report back soon for Planetside 2, but so far this are my results with a stock A10-5700:


-Sniper Elite V2 mid-low, 1080p, AO + VSnyc with a 1GB framebuffer, hovers 30ish.
-Guld Wars 2, Ultra, shaders medium, shadows medium, no supersampling, no AA, hovers low 20s in Lion's arch, mid 40s in the fields (perfectly playable).


I've undervolted the processor a bit, so I'll try to overclock the IGP to say 900MHz and report back smile.gif

Edit: make that report wait several hours. Hopefully it'll be done in around 3h. I have to transfer my 97GB Steam folder from the desktop to the APU lol.


Here we go!

Planetside 2 is throwing 30-32FPS on Low in the middle of an Amp station (40ish in the wild), render quality 100%, AO enabled, 1920x1080. I bet it would do WAY better if SOE would add an option to disable the AA.

how is the gaming performance of the APU? how do i overclock the GPU and what is safe to undervolt?

I'm trying to get my A10-5800k to be on par (and hopefully with more graphical kick) with a stock A10-5700 for gaming while taming the power consumption. current 3d mark vantage runs varies alot with around 1k differences.

I'm currently limited to a 80w PSU so i've underclocked my A10 to 2.6ghz and 3.5ghz turbo(no idea when or how this kicks in) running at 1v while everything is left stock. I'm running 1866mhz ram. idle power draw is rather healthy at 29w, CPU load is around 60-70w, 3d mark running load is around 80-110w

Picked up an HP Envy Sleekbook 6 this weekend with an A8-4555M in it. Will post a verification and pictures in a thread soon. Loving it so far. I have played World Of Warcraft, Torchlight 2 and Civ 5 on it so far.
