Mach1 for $300 worth it? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
and "mycomputersucksmore" i cant PM you but here are my suggestions
hey, all of your parts are decent but,
CPU: the opteron 165 is MUCH better and OC's like a white devil slave master
PSU: Hiper Type-r is teh bomb digity fresh
VGA: with the savings you have on the opty you can upgrade to a 7800 or so.
RAM: or, witht the money savings(even if your ram is TCCD based) you could upgrade to 2x1gb of ddr400 g.skill, or for the same price there is also a ddr500 kit

Thread Starter 
Yeah i didnt actually but the mach1. I ended up buying a custom made unit. Its been doin good for me. Being that this is my first amd system, im still working on getting some good clocks on my chip. Heres the highest i attempted so far http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=84027 its good enough to put me in 9th place for highest FX-60 oc's validated by cpuz.

But now im having a bit of trouble with my chip. Damn thing needs lots of volts to get stable. And one core always fails prime (on any oc)with anything less that 1.65v and this has been before i even hit 3.5ghz.

Amd tech support issued me an rma but not sure if im gonna use it just yet. I've only had the chip for a month afterall.
I might just have high htt coldbug.
