My second AMD build!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I decided to upgrade from my old 6000+ and wanted to stick with AMD. After good advice from people on this board (thanks guys) here is what i went for:

Coolermaster 690
Corsair HX 850W Modular
Phenom II X4 955BE
Coolermaster Hyper Z600
GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD5P
G.Skill Ripjaw 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8 1600MHz
WDC640 Black x2 RAID0
500gb Maxtor (Storage)
Sapphire HD 4850 512MB GDDR3

GPU and Heatsink are from my old build along with the 500gb storage HDD.










Excuse the cable management I just wanted to get everything sorted and make sure its all working! I need to make the hole at the bottom bigger because the PSU is large and covering most of the hole! Going to start OC'ing soon as the cable management is done. Thanks again to everyone who gave me advice!

Ahh nice, that's very sexy. Looks kind of like a more pimped version of my rig... Congratulations on the new build!

The board, CPU, PSU, 2 WDC640's, and the RAM came to £600. The GPU, Heatsink and the 500gb Maxtor are from my old rig.

I will be adding a second GPU soon, maybe another 4850, and waiting until after christmas to get a 5870.

Which would you suggest? This one seems fine though its currently around 30-32c idle @3.6 and hits around 50-54c running Prime95
