My Upgrade (FX8350 + Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 + Noctua NH-D14 + 16GB 1866Mhz)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I wrote this to fast last time. Well just wanted to inform everyone I finally upgraded my Sabertooth motherboard from R1.0 to R2.0. In the process I added the FX8350 with a better cooler the Noctua NH-D14. I also change the ram from 1600Mhz to 1866Mhz and up it from 8GB to 16GB. So far the system runs great and will be a little while before I start OCing it. In the process Windows 7 64bit didn't need to be re-install since is pretty much the same motherboard. I just remove the old drivers and installed the one for the R2.0. thumb.gif


Next I need better video card and SSD. biggrin.gif

Nice, congrats on the new rig!

I just put together a very similar system:

ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 motherboard
AMD FX-8350 CPU
Noctua NH-U12s cooler
32gb of Crucial DDR3 1600mhz ECC RAM
nVidia Quadro fanless workstation graphics card (this is not a gaming rig)
Intel 530 series 240gb SSD
Western Digital Black 1TB hard drive

All running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Ubuntu server virtual machines. smile.gif

With a rig like that you really need a SSD. I personally now have SSD's in all six computers I have in use. Then I have a iMac in my basement running OS X server with two external two terabyte drives for storage.

You are totally correct. I am currently shopping for SSD for my wife System and my own. Thanks mate!

Hey do you know which SSD 240GB is worth getting for the price since I have to grab 2 of them? I would be happier if I can get them in Amazon since I have Amazon Prime.

Nice! That ASUS mobo is great! almost got that for the wife. You also have enough memory to run the system off from it. XD
I am currently setting up my Ubuntu in VirtualBox so I can run GNS3 from it and route everything over USB3.0 to my Cisco Catalyst 2950 switches. biggrin.gif
Nice setup you got going on there bud. thumb.gif
