AMD BUILD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm building a system and want to know the safest stable clock speeds of a:

AMD FX-8320 & ASUS Direct CUii 7870.

I was thinking of a 5200mhz 7870 Effective Engine and Core of 1200mhz, Is this too much or too little? I've looked at quite a few reviews, benchmarks and most of them don't indicate the safest and most reliable overclock.

Also for the 8320 ill be purchasing a CoolerMaster Sedion 120M Closed Loop and want to know who the safest clock speed would be? I wouldn't mind topping the voltage up a tad too, just to push a little more juice to have it almost on par with a 8350.

This will be my build BTW!:

AMD FX-8320 OC to?
CoolerMaster Sedion 120M Closed Loop CPU Cooler
BitFenix Colossus Black/Blue
Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 8GB DDR3
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Motherboard
500GB Seagate Barracuda
120GB SanDisk SSD
LG DVD R/RW
ASUS Direct CUII HD7870 OC to?
600W OCZ Technology ModXTreme PSU

Additional Mods will be SUPER ABSOLUTE Cable management with Modstream Black Sleeving kit.
Not one cable will be seen besides the actual plugs.

Additional fan for the cooler & front panels.
Additional 8PIN Extension cable, The 600W OCZ MXT has a short cpu power cable frown.gif black sleeved also...

Any Thoughts? smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

The max clocks vary on each sample, the point of overclocking is precisely to find those clocks! wink.gif
