I went to my sabertooth and have not looked back my 990fxa gd80 is setting in the box after being used for like 1 week. I plan to build a crap tastic machine with it when I upgrade and convert this current machine to my capture rig for a 2 rig game streaming setup. I think my 9590 at 4.7ghz would be perfect for a capture encode and stream rig and new rig be my gamer rig plan to go AMD ZEN whenever it releases and run next gen AMD GPU's only 2 this time though never again do I plan to do a 3 card solution.
My 3 card experience was all but pleasant most of time anything past 2 cards is a shot in the dark and ocassionally a slap to the face when it worked it worked but often 3rd card lacked any real performance gain in short 2 cards was pretty good but 3 cards well that is where the benefit of the 3rd card was nothing special or to write home about.
What games do you play? I'm about to get a twin for my GPU which parameter do I change in BIOS for crossfire is it HT to 2600mhz?
NB and HT need to be manually set there is a bug on the 990fx platform that will cause them to not be set right NB needs to be 2200mhz and HT needs to be 2600mhz I had this out before in a thread with johan45 and he said it was a lie then later admitted he had seen same thing and recognized it as a bios bug as it truly is.
if you don't manually set the NB and HT on the 990fx with a vishera CPU the NB will bounce around 1800mhz-2000mhz and HT will be around 2000mhz-2200mhz this is a loss in performance so manually set these. I will find the thread and such where it was proven about this bug and such and I pointed it out.
read a few pages in from this post and you will see johan45 getting corrected and proof by SlayeCohenX his board bugged out plainly showwed the bug up close and personal his HT locked to 2200mhz instead of proper 2600mhz and his NB was at 2000mhz instead of proper 2200mhz that was performance just gone due to a bios bug until he set it proper http://www.overclock.net/t/1399704/nothing-to-see-here/500#post_23219610
I play alot of games ark survival evolved / tomb raider / planetside 2 / arma 2&3 / world of warcraft / Guild wars 2 / metro 2033 & last light / crysis 2&3 / bioshock infinite / dayz standalone / rust pretty much you name it I play it pretty much maxed out I also capture and stream to twitch using OBS while playing my games directly from my sig rig all with a 1 rig setup here is some of my past few streams all captured and played from my sig rig http://www.twitch.tv/rickcooperjr/profile
PLZ keep in mind I am not about content but stream sometimes just because I can and I thrive on doing so in high quality game streaming. I want you to keep in mind a few of the bioshock infinite streams quality is borderline okay but that was me trying to help a person here on OCN get his streaming settings right to run at his bandwidth and his bitrate right and such but he only could do 2000kb/s and a guy told him that would be a horrible stream quality I proved it otherwise in this post with a full hd 720p 2000kb/s stream granted I had to crank the x264 CPU preset to point it had my 9590 processor straining hard http://www.overclock.net/t/1575398/upgrading-i5-2500k-for-streaming-gaming/30#post_24497475Edited by rickcooperjr - 10/24/15 at 7:47pm
