Nothing wrong with that, though it's not something I normally assume to be the case, given the name and theme of this forum.

OCing need not imply impractical use, and many of the parts suggested thus far will actually need a fair amount of OCing to be competitive.

No. In fact, you have more reason to go for the FX-9370 if you aren't OCing. It's stock speeds are much closer to the peak clock potential of Vishera; it's got a fair edge over the 8350, and a significant edge over the 8320, if you do not factor in overclocking.

There is a variant of the Sabretooth with PCI-E 3.0, but it's not the one I was referring to. I would actually avoid the PCI-E 3.0 model; the way they have the bridge chip and lanes setup offers next to no advantage.

Their GPUs are great, but their CPUs, no thanks. You would be far better off with a i5 for gaming..

Okay, well lets scratch energy efficient, then what would you suggest? I still need silence though!

Amd cpu arent near to energy efficiency...then you.need intel..

Which budget?1000usd hardly you will get. A better gpu with intel prices`
post #16 of 44
If you are looking for something somewhat energy efficient and silent on the AMD side of things then I'd suggest the FX 6300 or the 7850k... While they are a little on the pedestrian side of cpu power they are both capable chips for gaming. The 6300 is a 95w chip and stays pretty cool (mine does at least) and the 7850k has a variable tdp. If you don't plan on doing much (if any) overclocking, I'd recommend the Asrock killer in the 990fx chipset and the Gigabyte UP4 should you go the FM2+ rout... GPU wise the 260x/270x/280x are great.. If yawns to stay around the 100 dollar mark for the GPU as mentioned in the first post I'd recommend the 260x as you can find them as low as 120. ... For cooler you can do any of the higher end air coolers to archive the silence. Granted I have found my h220 to be just as silent as anything (cooler master glacier is the same unit)...

Well like I said, forget the energy efficient aspect, but still require silence! I'm fine with it being more beefy as long as it is still cool and quiet.

Lol was waiting to read this. What exactly makes the 8350 horrible!? 8350for the price hangs with any Intel cpu at the same price while allowing a cheaper motherboard.

Now op the suggested parts you can't go wrong with
post #19 of 44
I'd figure then the 8320 with a Noctua and r9 -270x would be sufficient... The HIS 270 I had was really quiet, even at load..and stayed under 60c. I suggest the Noctua as I understand it cools great with really low noise

If you actually read the post, he said, you want energy efficient, 8350 is horrible. Therefore, he said that the 8350 is horrible if you want to have a more energy efficient rig, which it really is. Also the heat it produces is terrible (cant say much for haswell either) because of the high wattage. CPU speed wasn't even mentioned.
