Normally your PCI-E freq should be running 100mhz in the BIOS. Also, you can use CPU-Z or GPU-Z to check the speed of your PCI-E connection. The top most slot(closest to CPU) is 16x, 2nd slot is 8x, 3rd slot is 16x, and the 4th slot is 8x. It doesn't really matter where you put your GPU, as there is practically no performance hit between 16x and 8x(about a 1-4% difference depending on the game), but I recommend at least the second or third slot if you want to keep the heat away from your CPU/North Bridge.

I'll check those out and let you know what I find. If they will work, I'll be good to go with H2O for the system.

Cool. I am always running behind on getting the cool stuff but I finally got me one of these boards. The last mobo I'll prolly add to my collection will be the MSI NF980-G65 at least for a while any way. I don't know why I have to have so much hardware. I guess I just like to have a lot of options and I'm sort of a collector. I get bored easy to so having a lot of hardware ensures I'll always have some thing to fiddle around with.

Hey Kryton,

What blocks do you have right now that you are going to be using on the 790 NB and on the 750 SB ?

Finally received today the MSI 790FX-GD70... right now mounting the whole thing.. with 4 GPU's yummy(CF 5770, 9800GTX+ PhysX & hd4650 spare display - just for fun I'm not gonna leave like this)

Anyways I'm kinda collecting hardware too.. I get bored quickly...
So far here is all the hardware I got right now...

Mobos: MSI 790FX-GD70, MSI 770-C45 & Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P
CPU Coolers: Zalman CNPS9700, Corsair H50 & Noctua NH-D14
GFX: EVGA 9800GTX+, Sapphire HD4650, XFX 5770, Sapphire 5770
PSU: Corsair TX850w, Corsair TX650w, Codegen 550w
CPU: Phenom ii 965BE C3, Phenom 9850BE(it over heats, need to RMA)
RAM: 8gb (4 x 2gb) DDR3-1333 unbranded with heat spreaders
Thermal paste: Shin-Etsu G751, Noctua NT-H1, MX-3 & AS5
Case: CM590, had 2 more crappy cases but sold them
Optical Drives: 3 DVD-RW DL, 2 CD-RW
Hard Drives(+ Externals):
*Sata - 3 TB Hitachi 7200rpm, 1 750gb Western Digital 7200rpm, 2 500gb Seagate 7200rpm, 1 400gb Seagate 5400rpm, 2 320gb Hitachi 7200rpm, 1 120gb Fujitsu 7200rpm
*IDE - 2 80gb Western Digital 5400rpm, 1 40gb no clue brand/rpm
Fan Controller: Zalman MFC1 Plus, Fanmate 2

So basically I can build almost 3 computers right now.. but I need 1 more CPU & RMA the old 9850be, more ddr3 ram (especially better quality for the new board)... and get a full tower & another mid tower case... then I should be done. Forgot to mention I have here as well 14 x 120mm & 1 x 140mm fans (Noctua NF-P12 / NF-P14, Cooler Master R4's, Cooler Master from cm590 case, Noiseblockers XL2, Agiler cheap led fans) pretty much enough for case cooling.

I should start selling all this crap, I don't really plan building another setup or even using all this hardware.

Unless you are fluent in multiple languages there is no reason to get ultimate over professional. The only reason ultimate exists is the extra language packs. Save yourself some bucks!

Not even on all the hardware I got gets to the $2000

Not sure where is he buying that is so much money that is being spent.... if I were to Spend $4000 I would just go Intel based setup

That is honestly too much for an AMD set up, especially with only those old graphic cards

On Ebay... All new with warranty
1090TBE - $250 - $300
Velociraptors 300gb 10,000rpm - $100 - $150 each
MSI 790FX-GD70 - $80 - $100
Corsair TX850w - $80 - $100
Corsair 4gb (2 x 2gb) DDR3 2133 - $200 - $250
MSI 4890 - $100 - $150 each

Is there something wrong on your purchases?

I don't want to begin putting members to sleep w/a list of all the hardware I have but there's a few guys here that know what I have. I have about 12 motherboards alone. You can see where this can go in a hurry.

Currently have a pair of MCW30 Swiftech blocks, the same one(s) I've been using all along. They will work with the board, no prob but if you remove the DR. MOS cooler, you'll definitely need a block or something for the MOSFETs, and that's the issue I'm presently having.
Since I'm wanting to go H2O with it, may as well do the MOSFETs the same way you know.

Techically, if you are not going to be using the PC on a domain and don't really caer about bitlocker, Keep the Home premium. NO need t watse any extra money just to say that you have ultimate. That's just nonsense. They al look exactly the same except for the welcome screen that says Professional or Ultimate at the bottom. They're no faster.
