AMD FX60 Toledo...Need info - Page 9

post #81 of 94
Hi

first to put things straight, i own the following System:

AMD FX60
Asus A8N-32 SLI Deluxe
Corsair 2x512 4400
1xGeforce GTX7800 512MB EVGA
Enermax 600W SLI
Custom Tower with excellent cooling

...and... the 2nd Geforce should arrive in a few days. Most of the PC is Watercooled (mixture between active and passiv), just waiting for the Watercooling Blocks for the Geforce and the Mounting brackets for the CPU...

now for installing things... ;-)... beware of the stock cooling of the FX, it is loud as hell and it doesnt cool s***...the Geforce Fan is nice

i tried to install Win x64.. omg... one bluescreen after the other... finally found out that the motherboard is so oc'ed form stock that i had to up voltages by quite a bit to get a stable system... next tried to install win x64 again... forget it... not with the asus and the nvidia card drivers.. it just wont stay stable, there seems to be a stack error in the drivers.. might get fixed soon, hope so..

Win XP pro (32) worked like a charm..3D Mark03, 05 & 06 give excellent results and any Game available will run like hell, Fear, correct me if im wrong but probably the most demanding game out there runs on highest settings, smooth as hell

now you give me a reason to oc this as long as there is no "normal" software out there to max out the System??? Why stress your expensive PC Hardware if not necessary at all? Of course, OC is fine with me, and i did quite a bit with my old PC (x800xt, P4 etc..) because i had a old system that i paid a lot for and wanted to use it until it was time to buy a new one(ok, wasnt reallllly necessary but i like to have a blazing fast PC) and i will do the exact same thing with my new one ... (might upgrade the Geforces to 7900 when they come out in one zillion years, lol )

oh and dont tell me that there is software to max out, of course there is, but maybe you want to consider server farms for rendering your 3D max models

(got 5 other PCs, 1 of them a HTPC with my X800XT ;-) and 1 Server running Win 2003 with AD, Voip and so on...should cover business needs for tomorrow your really dont want me to list everything here )

how about the simple fact that i would like to own a freaking fast system that would hold me up for the longest period possible and for the simple fact that i like to push everything and anything that i have to the limit. there is no fun to take something and just use it. i want to push it to the edge, to the best possible point of operation.

ask any good engineer and he would tell you that he wants to see how fast he can push his car, what is the ultimate maximum he can operate a production facility that he just built. its something like that.

I would not buy the FX-60 there is really no need for it right now because it costs WAY to much money....I would get a X2 4600++ or Opty...If you do a search on here you will find that there is an Opty 148 that leads the benchmarks for this site... Sorry I dont have the link but someone here I know does...

Because it's fun.


For most people, OCing is 50% getting cheap parts to perform well, and 50% having fun and seeing just how far they can push their hardware. For people with insane systems like yours, it's all about the fun.

Edit: Plus, there's always the chance to get the top benchmark scores and get into the Futuremark Hall of Fame... the first place guy has a FX60 OCed to 3.5GHz and dual GTX 512s running at 770/2200.

well form that point of view, i understand (just for the normal gamer, i wouldnt)

in that case, i think amd and nvida should be better OC'able then the rest out there...i have always been fan of Asus MB's but i see a lot of oposition with those DFI's, cant really tell... but if you become (are) an engineer, maybe you can get to the bottom of it and make it all go twice as fast

yeah, guess you are right, i also push it all to the max at the beginning (actually cant wait to get it all watercooled to do so) but just not for running t in the long run... and i thought the thread was about giving an advice on buying a gaming system in the long run, but i might have been slightly off topic

well mate. what can u say i am an engineer. and i have been mucking around with computers since i the dx4 days. back then there was only AMD as the best. i have been building, selling and overclocking systems from back then. still remember those days when i used to sell performance pcs at a premium of 3000USD to professionals (and mind u i was still in uni and the first time i saw a keyboard i thought it was called a monitor ) so now after all these years especially those spent here at oc.net the bug is on fire and itchy.

Wait... you have $1500 worth of video cards, but only 1 gig of RAM? Go get yourself some OCZ Platinums!

Sorry for goin off topic, Cyrix.

hmm, i got Corsair 4400 XMS, probably the fastest DDR (not talking about timings here ;-), oh and did you know that more than 2x 512 will slow down xp instead of speeding it up...

unless you are doing some serious graphics (illustrator, quark) stand down on more than 1 Gig..

cheers
