Rig Upgrade Advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I could use some advice on what I should upgrade in my pc, my current specs are:

CPU: AMD A10-5800K @ 4.6GHz (the Freezer 13 has isn't able to effectively cool the CPU at 4.6 though, so the multipliers drop)
RAM: 8GB (4x2GB) Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz RAM
PSU: 600W Alpine PSU (I plan on upgrading this to a Corsair CX750 when I can)
Cooler: Arctic Solutions Freezer 13 CPU Cooler
GPU: Sapphire HD 7790 Dual-X (planning to crossfire the 260X with my 7790 until I can get another 260X to replace it)


I plan on running two R7 260X's in crossfire and was considering upgrading my CPU cooler from an Arctic Solutions Freezer 13 to a liquid cooler, like a Corsair H80i or H100i.
I was thinking about a dual-radiator liquid cooler because I'm planning to upgrade to an FX, or AMD's next performance CPU in the future (doubt it'd be anytime soon) and don't really want to keep changing cooler. tongue.gif

Would it be better to upgrade my CPU to a Kaveri APU or the Athlon equivalent, or will my 5800K be able to handle the crossfire load with a better cooler? I'm going to re-apply the thermal compound on my Freezer 13 to see if it gives my any performance gains.

I plan on doing 1080p gaming with my setup on high or max settings, with no AA because I use my 32" TV and I sit pretty far away from it so I've never experienced "jaggies".

Any thoughts on the cooler choice, CPU, the rig in general or anything I've said here? tongue.gif
Thanks in advance by the way. biggrin.gif

if you are gaming just throw another gpu in there, Then worry about the CPU later since the new AMD processors are coming out next year
Also i can vouch for h100i. I have my i7 950 at 4.2ghz and while stress testing i never see the temps go above 65C

well if your case supports a 240mm rad,,get the h100,,get a dual rad anyways,,,,h80 is loud,,i wouldn't worry much about your board and chip for now,,see what AMD has to offer in the near future,,if your case wont fit a dual rad,,get one that will,,then get a decent PSU,,,then you have a good start for the newer AMD series next year,,,,if you do get a new case check out the"" fractual design R2 XL"",,,bitfenix shinobi""",,,,nzxt switch 810"""if you go with a full tower you'll have all kinds of room and be able to fit anything in it for years,,,all 3 of those cases are under 200$

I agree with this. Find a card that will crossfire with that 5800k. Then you can get a processor later and the videocard should still be a viable component in your system.

Thanks for the responses, my case is a Zalman Z9 Mid tower, which can support a 120/140 dual radiator in the top. I'm going to get an NZXT Phantom eventually, probably a 410 (can't afford an 820 tongue.gif )
I'll get a liquid cooler when I get my 260X, possibly a H100i I don't know if the H100 would fit (although it does ship with two 120mm fans)

You dont need 750 watts for two 260 cards

650 watts can do it

And while Corsair units are not bad (other then the VS series) they are bad value

This one is the best bang for buck right now

I'll probably snag an H100i then, should be able to push my CPU even higher than it currently is. biggrin.gif

Thanks, I'll have a fish around for a 650W PSU then. As long as it'll handle the GPU's and some overclocking on the system I'm good.


I'll keep that in mind, I'll have to see what's in my budget when the time comes.
