What do they have in common? They all latch on the stock AMD bracket! And i have been buying them on purpose just for that! My fixation with ease of use is now rewarded (well, when i will get Zen+). Good news! Another reason you have to love AMD. CPU coolers that go back to s939, will be compatible with Zen. biggrin.gif

Thats what I would do.

Hope this helps.
Very true you should just oc the 8320.

i can help and some of my friends.

ill go into more detail in a few

for ram imo 2133 or higher. 2133 may do 32gb may not. if you cant buy it then fine you can try to oc but mem ocing is rough

I suggest waiting a week and getting an RX 480 8GB for $229. This will be your best bang for the buck and should bring your dad up to more modern standards.

Also - your processor is fine for now. Overclock it if it is under water and you will be fine. Or don't and you will still be fine.

again true one ketch. not much is known about this gpu.

amd usually is far better at higher res and nvidia lower res. (lower res being 1080p)

just some food for thought.

anyone who says you need a 8350 or 9xxx does not undertstand amds.

all 8xxx9 and 9xxx are the same chip just diff bins. your chip may or may not be able to get as high but should reach 4.6 easy enough.


drop in here http://www.overclock.net/t/1318995/official-fx-8320-fx-8350-vishera-owners-club

they and i if avail will help you ( busy season atm. ) just make sure to tell them you dont want max oc. just max oc you can get with current equip

assuming the cooler is same as most aio 240s you should get at least 4.6 hopefully 4.8. with higher mem he should enjoy it. basic rules of oc increase cpu\nb by 0.1v and nb by 0.1v

increase multi and vcore and stress test. ( use either prime or ibt avb ( NOTnormal ibt, avx has 80 + gflops ibt normal 40ish ) and any negative result in ibtavx is a failure ( it will say it suceeded but it didnt )

you can download ibt avx from first post of that thread. ill copy my quote to that thead as well fyi

Thank you Mega ! So I am still waiting for the parts, and will get back here as soon as I am ready. I want to set it up for him before he comes for his yearly visit! I also will be doing the due diligence on the homework Mega Man gave me above and reading through the posts on here!

Just so you know the rig parts available:

Asus Sabertooth 990Xfx R2.0- On its way
up to 32 gb ram- G.Skill Trident PC3-14900 32 GB DIMM 1866 MHz DDR3 SDRAM Memory- on its way
MSI AMD Radeon R7 270 2gb DDR5 OC
Thermaltakes Tough Power 750W 80 Plus Gold PSU -have on hand from current rig.
Fx 8320 CPU- have on hand from current rig
Thermaltakes Water Cooler 3.0 240m Riiding RGB Edition PWM- also on its way

A huge Smilodon PC case he got at a pawn shop with several fans for $15...lol That's my dad! Can't pass a pawn shop without trying to get the better of the pawnshop dealer- current rig

Current rig with some of the parts above:

GA 970A-ds3p mobo,
FX8320,
16gb Kingston 1600mhz ram
and the same psu above,
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus cooler.

I expect to see what I can get for these to offset the GPU purchase when it comes out. After looking at the advice on my original post and looking at what is currently available I pretty much will go with the suggestion of the RX 480 8GB purchase.

Here is the original post: http://www.overclock.net/t/1603659/trying-to-help-dad-with-his-second-rig-could-you-look-and-give-some-imput-other-than-its-a-dead-end-platform-sell-everything-and-start-over#post_25277348

Im pretty set on the suggestions there so scrapping the previous on-the-way purchases is out of the question now.

Good thing @Mega Man found your post. thumb.gif

For added reference, our good friend @Sgt Bilko just released his latest review of Gaming Performance with AMD FX pitted against Intel's latest and best.

http://wccftech.com/intel-skylake-6700k-6600k-amd-fx-8370/
post #60968 of 67910
Just read it. Kind of drops cold water on my last comment last sentence! Truthfully I had already read some other things about the aging of the FX series, but the gaming we have been into have not really involved the latest and greatest in PC peripherals due to budget reasons. I was thinking if It worked out for my dad that I might build myself a rig to play some of those games myself. I haven't really played since Wow and a few other online MMP games. Kind of liked World of Warships and Xcom. For me time is an issue though. My Dads rig will probably be my practice build before diving into one for me depending of how little of a mess I make of it....lol

Will the new Zen chips fit the Sabertooth 990X board? Or is that something else to consider should I move forward with building something for me and or upgrade my dad's rig? I'm not really an Intel fan.

I redid my son's old Acer Veritron by putting in a Q94XX chip. Cant remember which one right now and maxing out his ram. No OC. He is perfectly happy humming along with some Dungeon games and Xcom 1 and 2 I think. But I am thinking maybe take my Dads board and extras and giving it to my son now and scrapping the Veritron into Ebay. So I'm no expert but I do dable here and there.
post #60969 of 67910
Zen will be a completely new platform. Means current 9XX Boards and FX-XXXX CPUs will not be compatible.
post #60970 of 67910
We then nothing to worry about. Ill just build myself a nice little rig with a fx9xxx cpu and hang around here for a while and learn something with you fine gentlemen if you don't mind...lol

Eventually Ill grow up and join the Zen or after revolution.
