A10 build help!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm building a little a10 apu build. I have ram, although it's going to kill my gpu performance frown.gif
I have a seasonic 520w psu.
So I mainly need a motherboard.
I'm looking at the A10-5800k
ASUS F2A55-M/CSM is the motherboard I'm looking at. I don't really want to spend more than about 90 for the mobo.
I don't know how well that board supports overclocking though.
Current case idea is the fractal core 1000. It'll fit 3 hdds and an sdd.
I want a cheap ssd as well. I don't really want to spend mroe then about 300 for the whole build.

i would suggest getting the Asrock FM2A75 Pro4-M for the motherboard. as for the SSD, check out this thread. it should give you all the information you need to make an educated choice for your SSD

Sadly the asrock isn't sold where i'd be buying it from.
I don't need a good ssd.. it jus needs to be an ssd cause i can throw it where-ever.

How about Gigabyte's GA-F2A75M-D3H?

Regardless of which motherboard you buy, it should have either the A75 or A85 chipset. The A55 lacks USB 3.0 and SATA-III (6Gb/s) ports.

I don't need usb 3 or sata 6, but i did like the sata ports on the asus cause of their lay out.

Since you said that you wanted a SSD, it would be best to get a board with SATA-III. Otherwise, your read speeds would be limited from its maximum-specified ~500MB/s to SATA-II's maximum 300MB/s throughput.

Where are you planning on buying it from. Asrock is available through newegg.ca, and you can do the transaction without a credit card through your bank. Unless you deal with cibc or a credit union. mad.gif

Oh micro atx eh. No joke intended.

then Asus f2a85-m/csm or Asus f2a85m-pro. Your choices.

Looks like the ASUS F2A55-M/CSM has the same VRM setup as my F2A85-M.

I could get a "mild" OC of 4.2 across all cores out of those, but I have little to no airflow over the VRMs and it wasn't F@H stable.
