AMD HAF-932 Bulldozer Build - Page 8

post #71 of 154
Thread Starter 
Just about to close everything back up and call this build done....... for now.
400
700

Also decided to run Uningine Heaven and was surprised at how low the score was - it only scored 353
400

I am updating the AMD driver and will run it again. I also ran it on my Intel rig and got a score of 1092 - was expecting it to be higher, but not that much difference
400

Updated the driver and OC'd the 7970 to see how much difference it would make and it now scored 426 on Uningine
400

Also re-ran 3Dmark11 and the new score is P8489, which is higher than the P7990 that my i7-3960 rig (at stock settings) got:

Did you say its at 4ghz? You have the h100! See if you can push it to five should be nearly a %25 increase over 4ghz and %66 over stock. Have you overclocked the ram yet? Bd is one of the few chips that does alot better with higher bandwidth. You already have good bandwidth, but more cant hurt.

Yeah right now just at 4 ghz - going to work my way up to 5+ just to see how high I can push it and keep it stable with the H-100. So far I have been impressed with the performance gain in the modest jump to 4.0

Just some follow-up for you. Since I have had the system running I have been playing some BF3 and a game called "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning". Game play has been very good and I have played both games at Ultra settings. There is no noticeable difference compared to my i7-3960x rig.

Have spent some time in the last few days tweaking my OC in preparation for Diablo III

Ok - so I finally decided to add a second GPU into this build and go Crossfire. The card I had available was a AMD 7950 to go with the 7970 that I already had installed. In addition to the second GPU, I installed a larger fan on the back and a 120mm fan on the bottom to help pull more air in.

Here is a shot of the larger fan installed, before I installed the 7950:

Here it is with the 7950 in:

The difference in 3dMark11 score is huge - it now gets P11086, http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3479447;jsessionid=zh61mj9kay3d1tkshs88frnv2

This is compared to P7416 that was my last result, http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3321957;jsessionid=3emfi63giu1t1egth61i5wq5e

The last thing I want to do with this build is replace the PSU with a 850w modular model - I will probably go with the AX850 for this.
