My AMD Build from 1090t to FX8120 + crossfire

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well As the title says. This is my first build that has transformed over time.
First build:
Asrock 890 Pro 3
G Skillz Ripjaws 2 x 4gb 1333
AMD Phenom II 1090t at 3.8ghz
Sapphire 6950 2GB Dirt 3
Corsair TX 750
WD Blue 500gb

Current:
Asus Crosshair V
Gskillz Ripjaws 4x4gb 1600 @ 1720
AMD FX-8120 @ 4.2
2 Sapphire 6950 dirt 3's
corsair TX750
OCZ 120 GB SSD boot
WD blue 500 gb storage

Next:
Piledriver
XSPC extreme 360
7970 or 8000series cards.
NZXT 810 Switch



700

359

700

450

This board was a nightmare and it could not hold a good overclock. it burned out soon after.
the new asus board came out and after 2 DOA I finally had a good one.

359

and the cooler master n520 just didnt have enough cooling power so i got a antec 920

359

Soon after the antec I really waited to test out the FX series. So i sold my 1090t and got the FX 8120.
700

At this very point I really wanted eyefinity. SO i bought 2 other ASUS VW246 on ebay and ended up with this!

359

I got tired of the landscape eyefinity because i hated have everything stretched out.
so i debezeled them and used my old desk to hold them in place.

359

due to Such high resolution my fps was terrible so I went crossfire people always complain about mirco-stutter that wasn't a issue for me at all.359

Very nice build. I wanted something similar as my 6950 still had alot of life in it. I can only imagine 2 of them. But a good offer came along that financed my current build. Got to admit, I still have an itch to build a bulldozer PC. I loved my 1090T. Awesome build though.

Except for cable management!! Ahhh!

You are hard on equipment... Burned up a board with a Phenom II then got 2 DOA Crosshairs?

I do like your choice of hardware though, Crosshair, 8120, and dual Sapphire 6950's.

Burned it trying to oc the 1090t at 3.9ghz

1 crosshair had a dead Ethernet port the other wouldn't even post and it looked like some one had it before and RAM's it it had finger prints every where the board wasn't even straight it was curved . when those boards came out they had high DOA rate. I'm just happy newegg was very helpful!

And thank you! I love it very much. The girlfriend hates it tho. lol
