Phenom 965 / HAF X / Crosshair IV / Build..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just got my new parts. Its nothing special, video card is struggling but it gets me through the games i want. Next step is a 460/470 or 5850. Let me know what u guys think of the new setup.

Coming from this (Antec 900 has horrible cable management)



To this!



Full tower is the way to go...








More pics to come, any suggestions on future upgrades??

Anyone who has the Crosshair IV...what are acceptable temps for NB?

Nice build! Man that is almost exactttlly what I did. That looked like a Antec900 your old stuff was in. I went from a 900 to haf 932 THEN got the HX1000. Looks like you could use a SSD to run your OS and games/apps from. Definitely makes a noticeable difference. GPU you already mentioned...would suggest the 1090t or 1055 but not THAT big of an upgrade considering bobcat and bulldozer are getting closer and closer. Then again the CHIVF won't be compatible with them anyway so if you wanted the very best proc for that mobo I'd get the 1090(just my opinion because I do a lot of multitasking).

Officially acceptable NB temps for CHIVF are anything below 65c at load. I was hitting in the low to mid 50c's before reseating the HS. Directing a fan at it dropped me another 10c. Have it down to around 27c idle and 30ish load temps, with a slight over-volt.

AMD says 70*C is the damaging point for their NB.

Just upgrade your 4850 and you should be set for a little while.

I got almost the same setup! My north bridge temps are 50C when under load so I think I need to re-seat the heat sink. Upgrade your card to a 5870 and you're set! For a little while at least till Bulldozer and the 6000 series of cards come out lol
