Monitors : 3 x 248H in AMD Eyefinity

Cpu: AMD BE FX-8150 (3.6+) ..Runnin at 4400mhz (valideted a stable 5000mhz)
Gpu's : 2 x R7970 (ghz edition) + 1 x 550i GTX as an physx accelerator
Mobo : Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
Memory : Gskill 11-11-11 1.75V .. runnin at 1800
Hard Drives : 2 x KingstonHyperX 120Gb ssd in RAID 0+1 effectively + 2Tb 7200rpm (64mb) Barracuda

It runs smoothly everything I can throw at it. Didnt even mind "beta"-eyefinity when I missed 1 plug. Crysis in deviance went smooth. Now I offc. got the active minidp to dvi adapter. Any upgrade suggestions?

Agreed, the 8150 is so terrible, the 8350 would be a worthy upgrade, and yes make a watercooling loop.

PS: Expect that mouse to die frown.gif I do love it, but mine is broken after 5 months of use. Stopped tracking vertical all-together.

I rly like 8150 and seem to be gettin all the power I need from it.. Still swapping cpu into 8350 is a valid choice. Forgat to mention but water-cooling loob is comin up' smile.gif. About RAM : 32Gb is max that I can set in this Mobo (Sabertooth) so I'm usin 32Gb smile.gif. Time-cycle is weird..11-11-11 and Voltage 1.75V. Clocket it from BIOS to 1800 + and got a boost to 2200 mhz.

But yes...water cooling loop offc is needed to overclock moar and the cpu change has been in my mind for a moment..I kinda got 8320 rdy but I'm not too familiar to AMD's factory oc cpu's (piledriver's)... I've been gettin better results with Zambezi than Vishera.. But I'm lookin for some moar info and mayby change my cpu..

Any1 got any ideas for AM3+ based mobo with 16/16/16/8 or 16/16/16/4 ? I aint gonna buy 1 x moar 7970 b4 I find a Mobo that supports those lanes. (as in 3 x 7970 + a place for Physx accelerator).

For the sound : Got tv, my comp, game-consoles in living room. I got also 3 monts old son and my wife spends time in the living room too.
This is the main reason I havent put any cash into speakers/soundcard.
I love my R.O.G Vulcan Pro Anc Headphones. "Active Noise Reduction".

Mouse : Yea, heard the same thing many many times.. R.A.T 9 dies fast but havent tested it and I rly want. Old mmo mouses will replace it when it says BOOM and then I start searching for a new one.

TYVM for replies this far.

Sincerely : GGG (Druizza)

Upgrading a bit.. Waiting for a new mobo .. Crosshair V Formula-Z + cpu from 8150 ---> 8350. Aint selling my trusty Sabertooth R2 , keepin it as a "safe" mobo biggrin.gif.
I'm hoping to solve some cpu oc issues with the new mobo. Mostly about the ram speed capalities compared to saber.. (+ I'm a bit worried about using 2x R7970's (ghz editions) in the Formula Z..http://www.jimms.fi/imagecache/9/0/70590_800x600_1.jpg ...s.bridge + 2x ghost heat in heavy load? Any experience any1?
