FX-8350 Build Advice - Page 2

post #11 of 25
well you can usually tell by the power phases. for example my xfx 7950 uses a 8+8 power where as refrence 7950's use a 8+6 power design. also you can just look it up and do some research to find out.

What is a good water cooling case that will allow me to use a all in one system until i can afford a larger better water cooling case?

My 500R fits the rad of the H100 in the top no problem at all with the fans mounted underneath.

I like Fractal Design Define R4 its more simple of a case as i never need access to the blu-ray drive.I am thinking of going to the AX750i or AX860i. I do realize the power supply is over kill.

edit
Do you recommend any 7950?

I have the cooler master Haf 912 and it has room for a closed loop and it is expandable to custom cable management isn't the greatest but its not terrible either 60 usd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

Honestly, I would atleast pick up an HD 7850, even if you're not going to be doing much gaming.

You may find a game you really like but because of the 5450 you cant play it properly. You also have the money for it, so why not?

I have decided to down size the power supply to AX760i and change the mother board to ASUS sabertooth 990FX/Gen3 R 2.0 and video card to HIS Radeon HD7950 3GB. I want the PCIe 3.0 support. For the heat sink i am thinking of going the H100 but what case can support it with fans in push pull config.

Not many going to be able to house the H100 with push pull unless you get into the big full tower cases. You honestly dont need push pull. Im running mine on top of my 500R with the fans underneath pulling in cool air. Under OCCT at full fan speed, it hovers around 50C. For normal use, I have them on the slowest fan speed which are near silent and my 8150 never much above 45C even with heavy gaming. So while push/pull might add a degree or two in cooling, it might not be worth it since itll limit your case choices so much.

you are trading 2.0 x16 to 3.0 x8 not really a much of a difference between the them... Also you have an extra chip that would cause latency.. If the R2.0 is cheaper I say get that they are the same board but one has the 3.0 gimmick

Well that doesn't fit his needs that build is way more expensive than what he really would utilize and I quote OP

"I am looking to build a machine for running VM's in windows, and several Linux Distro's. When the machine not in-use it will be folding. I plan on learning how to OC as well."

why pay $500 for a chip when a $180 chip would cost the same even the board for AMD's are cheaper so far a total savings of 400 alone on that. He could get 64GB of 2133 ram which would help his VM farms and still be saving $200 and have equal performance which then would make the 770 affordable

So in short your suggestion is to through money at it and have less performance

I love the R2.0 boards. Just build 32 machines for my school that use the R2.0 boards for teaching Linux, Virtualization, and Security. I have not heard to much about the Gen3 boards that's why I ask. in 2.5 months we have not lost one machine but the other teacher who received 32 Dell/Intel Computers at the same time has already had to replace 3.
