1045t what to upgrade to? upgrade cpu and mobo w/ram upgrade soon

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Have build in my sig for reference. I have at the most 550$ total w/intel 4770k w/x87 asus sabertooth build and I think that's a lot. It is 2.2 faster non oc'ed on the intel..more like 2.4x oc'd. So anything less than 550$ is my budget. AMD Convention is in 2 weeks and that might change my build. Would like something to not bottleneck my 770ti anymore. Also any boost from a CPU standpoint in games would be great. I also use Solidworks, but I don't have any problems with my build now. So this build is strickly gaming build.

1045t OC'd to 3037mhz no turbo boost. c&q off. 1.375v. Have not tested for lowest volts, but I assume I can still be stable at 1.325? Wont go any higher, assuming the board is to blame and bad vdroop. Lowest i get is 1.216 and highest 1.376. Idle or load. 3.6 is stable in boost, but doesn't offer any fps boost.

ECS 785gm-m board only goes to 1.44v, (higher with turbo boost on, but 1.5 is the safe limit of my chip) pcie2.0 bard but runs at 1.1

gskill sniper 1333mhz oc'd to 1500mhz ram-soon upgrading, but would like cpu/mobo first
----
gtx770ti, great oc'er but has very bad vdroop from MOBO and not pcie3.0-not upgrading

corsair 750w PSU-not upgrading
----
I want to get a Coolermaster Glacer water cooler(h220) for sure. 130$

HELP!thumb.gif

Your board is most definitely to blame. Get a proper mobo and your 1045T should scale up to ~3.7 using no more than 1.4 under load. The vcore you need for the 3GHz OC is really absurd.... even the worst binned X6 wouldn't need that, so has to be the mobo. IMO you should wait until APU 13 and see what is revealed then. If AM3+ is going to stick around, you could just get a nice board, use the 1045T to its true potential, and wait for SR. If not, then you have some choices to make. Also try to be on the lookout for a fairly priced X58 board if you can....
