AMD A8 5600K Build Log [Bibiana]

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
First off, I want to thank AMD, Kingston, Sapphire, and Gigabyte for this. I won these items at AMD Fan Day Austin. With those guys this build would not be possible. XFX and several other vendors also did an awesome showing.

Build is as follows:

AMD A8-5600K
GigabyteF2A85X-UP4
4x2GB Kingston 1600mhz DDR3
Sapphire HD 7770
NZXT Phantom
Antec Earthwatts PSU




I will start to post more when my I get a hold of my wife's phone with the rest of the pictures I took.

you are going to need a simple GPU, just to know how much juice this baby can take without iGPU(disabled).. I think you may go over 5Ghz on good air, good luck and thanks for sharing thumb.gif

That's awesome. Get that RAM speed up! You're bottlenecking with every moment you are running at 1333Mhz.

I have back up to 1600mhz now. This system runs great in my opinion.

Any reason why you didn't spring for the A10?

TDP is the same, better iGPU for Hybrid Crossfire / "Dual Graphics"
