I've been folding full system for the past couple days and seeing numbers from 135 to 180k PPD, and only up to 10K of that is CPU. Not only that, it stays under 50 on the stock ACX cooler.

Should be here sometime today biggrin.gif In the mean time, here's a few (grainy?) pictures of my 'completed' rig and set-up thumb.gif

Nice looking rig.

Just so you know you don't need a 1000W PSU to run a 270X with an 8320 lol, I'm assuming you didn't get your advice from this forum doh.gif

It has very similar power usage of a 660ti.

But anyway you have a 960 now which should play games well.

I'm running a 8350 and I used the wattage calculator on New Egg. Aside from that, I didn't just take advice, I saw it happening. I returned the first on because after the initial boot, my system powered down and wouldn't come back on until I unplugged the 270X. The second one ran, but it was limited performance and even limited to only 2 monitors. Try not to be so condescending please, especially when you don't know the whole story. Also, I'm not sure if 20% higher than the 660 Ti is 'similar' but, sure.

Anyway, the GTX 960 is sweet and uses way less power and so far I have no complaints as far as performance as I usually game in 1400 X 900 and occasionally 1080.

Apparently the 46A wasn't enough because it needed to compensate for the increased draw of the 8350....or at least that's my theory. Either that, or two Sapphire 270x were defective. All I know is that the 660 Ti and 960 have no issues running at full power and some and the same wattage calculator said that I'd only need 500w for my current set-up, which seems to be true considering I've had zero issues. But who knows, it could all be bull___ and coincidence.

Running @ 4.4GHz on the FX-8350 until I can figure out how to change the voltage on the this MoBo. This is my first GUI Bios board and 'Expert Mode' still seems more GUI than I'm used too.

Also, Running 1500/8000Mhz on the GTX 960.

Last but not least, finally have my RainMeter almost where I want it. For some reason I can pull the GPU temps in from Afterburner.

UPDATE:

 

Installed my new EVGA GTX 960 4GB SSC I received through Step-Up, even came with a free back-plate :D

 

 

 

 

 

Also upgraded my RAM from 8GB (2X4GB) to 16GB (4X4GB) , by adding 2 more Corsair Vengeance LP 1600MHz.  Keeping in line with the Blue & Black theme as well.

 

 

BEFORE:

 

AFTER:

 

 

Slowly getting my new office setup, but it's already 1000 time better than my previous workspace :p
