Glad u like it, its my fav board too.....doesn't lie about being military grade either

theres been loads of spills and splashes and it still lives on smile.gif

You're high as a kite if you think anything consumer is even close to military grade...

Hi CK,

well unless they are outright lying, they are officially military certified

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95

I went into in some depth when I reviewed it

I would think someone would have taken issue with it if they outright fabricated the grade of the most featured ...ummm..feature of the TUF series.

just my opinion :)

they cant lie in advertising........ (waits for the bashing to commence on that hardcore sarcastic remark) lol but seriously only a few items have hit the market in the last 20 years that really were military grade and those items were decommissioned from the military itself... its becoming used kinda like premium... as a bullcrap selling point...

It's equally funny since anything military would be even uglier. Military things only look good on the outside, if at all, and are complete standards color conformance on the inside, like a Dell case.

Not to mention they wouldn't be running AM3+ anyway. tongue.gif

Hi CK,

well unless they are outright lying, they are officially military certified. I went into some depth about it in my review and looked up the military codes for the regs at a military website (the name of which escapes me at the moment) because I wanted the real deal on the military grade.

Well as good as the MSI 990FXA is I will never buy MSI ever again. Their support sucks. They release an update and break the software of theirs that you use to OC and they will only tell you THEY DONT SUPPORT OCing. Seriously the board itself is great, the software is awful. Had that first guy on the phone confused, lol. He said we don't support OCing in almost English and just kept saying that. So I said "You gonna buy this board back then. It doesn't work as advertised. " Dude said nothing for like 15 sec, then that he will transfer me to someone else.

Seriously how are you gonna say you don't support OCing when this is what others see on their site:



It is advertised as such. Honestly I think their stance is that they don't have support to help you OC or guarantee an OC. But like so many great minds everywhere they turn it into they don't support OCing of any kind.

Guys just going off what i have witnessed and also what i have heard. I would not put a CX420/CX620 anywhere near a $2,000+ rig.

Nor would I. First of all if you have spent $2,000 for a rig you most likely need at minimum a 650w gold PSU, you would most likely be overclocking too and that would not work out too well. Mine is a 660 platinum and that's the lowest power PSU I would use. I have them in rigs that are not overclocked and are more everyday PC's for surfing and my wife playing Facebook games. The HX520 is in a AMD APU rig (A8 6600k with an HD 7770) and not overclocked at all and it's working flawless and has been around in other rigs for years but that's a $450 Budget rig.

That's why I went with the CX750. This build was my first foray into PC gaming in quite some time, so I was aiming to keep it budget. Needless to say, that budget has swelled with the addition of another GTX 660.

That said, I'm a moron. Those voltage drops were power saving kicking in because the CPU was too slammed by IBT AVX during scene transitions. It seemed like it was locking up when it was just hanging while it waited on the CPU. I backed off my OC from 4.4 to a rock solid 4.2 at stock voltage and it's no longer hanging. Running 7 Prime95 threads instead of 8 allows Heaven enough cycles to keep going without any problems or voltage drops while still keeping the CPU above 95% load. Looks like my CX750 wasn't the culprit - I was. tongue.gif

Well, that, and my unstable 4.4GHz OC. I'll have to work on that.

I did start checking out reviews for higher-end power supplies and I think I'm gonna look into picking up an 80 Plus Platinum PSU at some point in the near future. It'd save money in electricity in the long run, and this monster eats enough juice without being more wasteful than it needs to be. Wish I hadn't missed the sale Newegg had on that Seasonic 760W. They were out of stock before I noticed it.

That's a good choice, if I didn't already have a 660 I would get the 760 just for a bit of headroom. Running prime95 and heaven at the same time I managed to get a bit over 600w peak draw from the outlet and even though I wouldn't normally ever use that much power I will have to upgrade if I ever get more power hungry GPU's and the water-cooling loop I am planning. I was told by the Seasonic rep that this unit will go somewhat beyond the 660w's it's rated for but like is stated in some of the recent posts here we are talking about large amounts of $ in these systems so why try to eek by. An extra $100 could save a ot of money and headache's down the road.

Unstable OC then.

I don't really think a platinum could save you a lot of $ TBH. I mean, it will eventually will. If your rig could last more than 2 years. I'd say just pick one with a good enough build and quality output delivery. Doesn't really matter if it's a bronze. That's still 80% efficient. And will cost a lot less.

It would also make sense to weigh your rig's consumption if it will be better to opt for a 95% efficiency at 50% load, idle, and full load. And how do use your rig. Is it really for gaming more than 12 hours a day? Folding 24/7? or just a personal computer where most of the time stays on semi-idle?

Heavy usage would really benefit from those high efficiency PSU's but if the computer stay most of the time idling, remember, even the best platinums cannot keep their claims at 10% power demand. So the savings isn't gonna be of an impact overall.

I think my 8350 has ADHD. Whenever a game is lightly threaded they tell me my low fps is my processor's fault. Yet when I take it to the benchmarks I own. In high school teachers always told me the way I thought was wrong when I showed my work, yet I scored top on all the tests. Programmers dropped the ball in both cases.

tongue.gif.

Really digging Teso, I hope they have room for better multithreading in the future though. Bottlenecking gpu at 75% only using 25% of cpu.
