Hey guys my Husband returned from overseas that's why I disappeared recently and I have a minor dilemma;
He's upgrading his setup and can give me his ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX, or he's buying me whatever I need to try and hit 5GHz with my 8320. I know I know, can't remember who on here said it that I would not be happy at 4.7Ghz but you can suck it! lol But in all seriousness here are my options...
I am buying the Corsair Vengeance Series C70 because, well just because, we both love the Military theme
So airflow won't be an issue. Now what do you guys recommend I do to help my cause? Take his board and buy faster ram? Or, buy the Sabertooth or even the Crosshair V Formula-Z?
I couldn't go past 4.7GHz without temps being an issue but it was the VRM's that were getting hot and I know those Asus boards mentioned above are basically 1 and 1a with regards to quality, but is the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX (which is free) a good upgrade from my current mobo? Would faster higher quality ram help my chances of 5GHz? lot's of questions but I look forward to your ideas. Thanks!Edited by Deadlyg33k - 2/12/16 at 1:43pm
