New 8350 Vishera Gaming Rig - Build Log & Q/A

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey folks!

So this year around tax return time I decided it was time to upgrade my machine. I started with some SSD's, then a new video card, then another video card for SLI, then a processor, then better RAM, and today I just bought a new PSU from one of our fellow community members. When I stepped back and thought about it, I realized that I am quite literally building an entirely new PC! I haven't fully assembled everything yet and I'll have to do a tear-down when I install the CPU and PSU anyway, so I thought I would do a build log for your viewing pleasure smile.gif

New PC Name: DoomGuard V
The 5th incarnation of technological superiority in a long line of powerhouse gaming PC's, designed and built to guard the internet from the horrors contained within my own network.

Changes from DoomGuard IV
Processor - AMD 1100T (6 core 3.3Ghz OC@4.2) upgraded to AMD 8350 Vishera (8 core 4.0Ghz OC@???)
RAM - G.Skill 8GB (2x4) Ripjaws DDR3 1600 upgraded to 16GB (4x4) of the same
GPU - Single EVGA GTX 470 card setup upgraded to 2-way SLI EVGA 660 Ti SuperClocked 3GB setup, Retaining the GTX 470 for dedicated PhysX.
PSU - Corsair HX620 upgraded to Corsair HX1000.

Questions for when I put the build together:
My new processor is the AMD 8350 Vishera Black ed. I am using an ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula motherboard, and have updated to the newest BIOS v1703. What kind of overclocks have people obtained with this chip?

Anybody have the same mobo+cpu combination? Or perhaps just have a set of good OC parameters to test with already?


Part links for those interested
Mobo: ASUS Crosshair V Formula ROG Edition
CPU: AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz
CPU Cooling: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
GPU - 2-way SLI: EVGA SuperClocked+ GTX 660 Ti 3GB
GPU - Dedicated PhysX: EVGA GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked 1280MB
Case: Antec Nine Hundred
SSD Boot Drive: (2x in Raid-0) Intel X25-V
SSD Game Drive: Intel 330 Series Maple Crest
Others stuff: Logitech G710+ Gaming Keyboard, A CD/DVD burner combo, and two 7200rpm WD Caviar 320GB drives in Raid-0 for media storage. 3-way Display with 28" Hanns-G and a pair of 19" flanking screens.

You will most likely hit 5.0GHZ pretty easy if you have good cooling. I havent pushed mine too hard, and am at 4.8GHz already. HERE is a good guide to use. Its the one I used.
I personally would get a better cooler. Go for broke and get a silver arrow, a phanteks, or a noctua d14. I just switched to the silver arrow from the CM hyper212. With the hyper you won't be able to get past a 4.3 GHZ oc I would guess, at least not while stress testing.

Why a new power supply? What you have right now is pretty good for your needs.

Thanks for that info, actually a good idea. I had already been running into problems with the 1100T at 4.4Ghz (why I dropped it to 4.2) - BSOD's while running Battlefield 3 and the like, temps were hitting about 50/51 and causing crashes. I'll look up a better cooler and might grab it after work today, since there's a M-Center close to my office.

Could have been a bad chip, I imagine that the 1100T should be able to run a lot higher than 51 or so, but whatever.. It's been perfectly stable for me at 4.2 and I'm not complaining.

I know that the GTX 470 pulls around 250-350w under load by itself (reference here), while the GTX 660 Ti's are measured at about 250w each on load. I actually spoke with EVGA support for a bit as well, had problems with SLI on my board layout. Even they told me that I'd want 700+ or so for SLI 660 setup, regardless of the 470.

The fact that I'm adding in a 470 means I won't have enough power under heavy load. It can run and boot, but I'd rather not blue screen when I try to launch games tongue.gif

Random thought:
I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to fit the 470 in the case for PhysX. I only have a 3-way SLI bridge (which works perfectly fine for 2-way with the middle slot empty). But my PCIE slots are staggered in a way that messes with the setup:

I don't think I can have the 660's and 470 connected on a single 3-way SLI bridge and just tell it to ignore the 470. I need to find an long 2-way SLI connector so I can skip the 8x slot tongue.gif

Yeah it would be a shame to have a entry level cooler in an enthusiasts system. wink.gif

Also noticed, that you have a dedicated Physx card. I would be careful with that. Look at this video and I think you will see why. LINK It may not be worth it. You may want to sell the 470 to use as $ for your new stuff.
