BUILD LOG First Build with 8350.Final touches IN PROGRESS. - Page 3

post #21 of 69
I have the Sapphire 7850 2GB and I think that it is worth the money to get the 2GB version. The card cools nicely, but when the fans are ramped up to 60% they are louder than all of my case fans. This does not bother me because I either have headphones on or I have the volume turned up. I just turn the fans down to 40% when I am not gaming and it is hardly audible. You can always buy another 7850 later down the line and CrossFire them. I do not think that you can CrossFire a 7850 with a 7950, but you could CrossFire a 7850 with a 7870 from what I have read. If you want to CrossFire in the future, you will probably need a PSU that is in the range of 750-850W, just to be safe. There is always the PSU argument that goes through the forums and I am on the side of getting a little bit more watts is not a bad thing and it gives you room for expansion, especially if you OC your GPU and CPU as well as adding water cooling. As for the CPU cooling, I would suggest one of the closed loop water cooling systems, you will not be disappointed.

The build for your uncle seems like a solid build and he will be happy with its speed for working and multitasking. As for a MoBo for his build, I would suggest this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131873. I have had great luck with the two ASUS MoBo's I have used. One for my build and one for my friends build. Both work like a champ. If you want to use an APU with your uncles build any MoBo with an FM2 socket. I would not suggest getting one with an FM1 socket, because AMD is not really making any FM1 CPU's anymore. He will not be dissapointed with the FX-4100 though.

Good luck!

Thank you for the inputs thumb.gif But sorry guys, m a bit disappointed, as for now i'll be going in with only one build Thats my own rig.
My uncles build has been postponed atleast for couple of months i guess.. his older pc suddenly fired up n came to life n my uncle isnt in a mood to spend unnecessarily

But i'll be building one for my uncle soon for sure..

i did mean your uncle sorry.....

lastly really just get the mobo from a good name brand with the expansion slots you need dont go overboard. generally business pcs dont upgrade much
arent all the cpus you mentioned either am3 or am3+? if so just get an am3+ board bother types will work in it with all the mobos i have seen anywho.

evn here the 1600 n 1866 arent much apart as far as the pricing is concerned. the apu's ive mentioned have a FM1 socket except for A10 which has a FM2. the FX has AM3+.. but i think i'll be going in with the APU only preferably the A10 as it has some graphics too.. my uncle does require mild amount of autocad working sometimes.

Exactly the reason i'm thinking for a sapphire 7850.. THE TWO FANS. i think they'll make a lot of difference to the cooling. Frankly speaking the fan noise is barely an issue for me too.. the noise n commotion at my home would be way more than gun shots in Call of Duty..biggrin.gif:p

N wat i can see is ur suggesting that the crossfire can be done with similar 78xx series cards only n not necessarily all 7xxx series.. that could be a prob for me in the future buy still another 7850 would do good in future for me..

For cooling i'll be buying a H60 in a month after i accumulate some more cash..

Later, For my uncle i'll go with a A10 only with a A755 chipset.. thats should be economical too i guess..



Lastly, my most of the Things would be home by this weekend..

will update the pics as soon as they arrive.

I just stumbled upon this one
http://www.flipkart.com/graphics-cards/compare?ids=GRCD9HHSMYFMGVEP,GRCDEH4WVMVGX2VH,GRCDC2QTHGMGEGH6

I think the gigabyte should also do the job plus its a bit cheaper.. and the stock speed is also better..

They are all real close. Some OC better than others though check into that, but if that is not a big deal to you get whichever is in the budget.

I think the MSI would also do a good job under my budget.
post #26 of 69
I think that you will be happy with that card. thumb.gif I do not read a lot of bad things about MSI cards, to be honest. Cheers man! Happy building.

So guys now i have most of the components in my hand. i.e.

FX-8350
Asus sabertooth 990FX R2
Corsair Force series 3 120 GB SSD
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (4x2) 1866 MHz
NZXT Tempest elite 410 Cabinet
Corsair GS 700 PSU

So i started building my very first build n messed it up a bit.
In excitement i opened everything together n mixed most of the screws.
Though i managed to pick correct screws for MOBO n PSU

But now i am confused which side the PSU will face.
The PSU fits at the bottom f my particular cabinet. My cabinets has vent at the bottom too..

But which side the fan will face, towards the bottom (outside) of the cabinet or towards the processor (inside) of the cabinet ??

Also i'm very poor with the cable management, all the cables are hanging in the drone. So i'll need few lessons from u guys.

I'll be uploading the pics soon.

But before that please help me withe PSU issue.. mad.gif
post #28 of 69
You can just face the PSU fan down to the vent that is below the PSU location. There are four screws that should line up with four of the slots/holes in the back of the case. You want the PSU to blow its hot air our of the case not up into the case. Look around the forums and at build logs to see how other people manage cables. That is how I learned, or, was inspired by clean builds.

As for organizing screws; most of the fan screws look the same. The MoBo stand offs should be brass and the MoBo screws are nearly the shortest ones out of them all. I usually have a couple plastic containers that I use to set screws aside in so that they are not just scattered around my work space. A magnetic pad also works great for that sort of thing. Happy building, can't wait to see pics. thumb.gif

biggrin.gif Thank you so much thumb.gif

Ummm.. But i didnt use the stand off screws at all :worriedsml.. i didnt find any place for them to fit in anywhere..
post #30 of 69
You did not use the stand off screws for the MoBo?? Do not turn your computer on then because you could fry the MoBo without the little brass stand off's that go between the MoBo and the case. I found a picture of your case and circled the stand off holes. Since your board is regular ATX there should be at least nine screws that hold your MoBo down and those holes should line up with the stand off's.



Hope this helps.
