The Intels you just hit a brick wall and can't get much out of it, but you can play with AMD a lot, different bus/multiplier combos and stuff. I'm still tweaking mine and I got it at release and to this day I can still tweak around with it.
Well to be honest im not much of a tweaker, or how ever it is called. I just want to OC it to 4,4-4,7 ghz and done with it
My next build will have a much bigger budget and ill play around with all the big boys aswell ! I also want to join on the fun. But once i can get a stable 4,4-4,7 on the CPU.. Im just going to check to tweak the vga a bit for the lols (U can probably have multiple profiles?) Else I have OBS program to tweak around, will also be fun cause I know nothing about it. And then stream !
I guess If I ever upgrade next year, I can still get another mobo.. I mean really 1k euro or 2k euro.. its nothing when you work, absolutely nothing. Its just that right now I do not have a job for now, and im living alone with my girlfriend. We are moving to a temporary place soon, not for long and once we move from there , where we will go my chances for a job will be really high. And then I might even come back for another PC and give this one to my gf ! Haha
The only thing i will spend money on. Is some household so she can save up more money.. a proposal at some point.. and then just save the money
I mean I eat chicken/brocolli almost all day and I train at home, i dont cost much.. its just the eletricity bill rofl anyway im letting myself go if this motherboard can achieve 4,4 on the 8320 i will be really happy.. especially considering the fact that I would use that 212 evo O.o I mainly took it cause i heard stock cooler sucks even for stock speeds :/
Anyway I really appreciate the help a lot. Could you perhaps help me on the ram? Or ram i got are fine?
Btw as for the factors, if its the case and ambient room temperature. The case and everything ill use on my pc is on the picture, i wont add more fans. As for ambient temperature, I dont mind wearing a pull to make my room colder if its better for my PC. I will be in a Basement soon (renovated basement, not that u think that im a rat, it has really nice tapish etc, modernised) and its pretty cool there.. even in Summer.. When I was in that house I first slept at the second floor.. god the heat.. couldnt stand it, went to the basement to get a drink.. so damn cool.. but its really, really cold in the winter tho. I dont care, i like cold. Good for the blood , right !? And mainly for the PC haha
