so stressed! AHHHHH! (56k SUICIDE)

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
sup guys!

my old rig had some issues and was aging a little bit and when i build that i basically had little idea what i was doing
my old rig was this:
Biostar TA790GX 128M (~99 bucks)
Phenom II X2 550 BE (109 bucks)
Wintec ampX DDR2 800Mhz (4GB) dual channel (50 bucks) lol ram was cheap back then
ULTRA LSP 650w -(~50 bucks i think)
HIS 4870 512 w/ egg style fan (144 bucks)
and the crappy Apevia X-plorer! that was the worst case i have ever owned

the HDD and CD drive was from my old rig. the HIS4870 blew up due to my OCing noobness and i bought a HD4890 which i sold a few weeks ago and UPS damaged it and it dont work
IDE and the 160 GB HDD died so i bought a WD blue 500GB HDD and a LG lightscribe Sata II drive
oh btw i bought AOC F22, Razer deathadder, Razer eXact mat + rest a few months ago

i have been using my mom's Opty 170 and 8800GT rig for a while (i built for her of course)
so now...

my new rig upgrades has arrived!
the case, RAM, GPU came to me last month and i bought the ASUS CH4 open box on newegg. WORST DESISION EVER.
it didnt POST and a bunch of other crap. that plus stress from school AND being scamed on ebay made me loose sleep and i had some headaches for while. and i got sick
lol i didnt know i could get so stressed about a motherboard.

so now i reterned that PoS and bought the LEGIT CH4
i wont install the mobo yet because my CPU cooler hasnt come yet. i know my case has the hole, but IT DOESNT WORK FOR AMD CPU BRACKET!!!
i got so pissed, doesnt cooler master know that EVERY1 DOESNT HAVE INTEL???

anyway... my main goal is to do some SLi'd GTX275 or even 3 way SLi, but i'd need a new PSU, and i dont have enough money to buy a 950w or 1000w PSU and another GTX275 right now, so for now its just 275 + 8800GT for physX

THESE ARE PICS FROM THE OLD DEFFECTIVE PoS MOBO


the PSU isnt the best, but it gets the job done

my first issue with the old mobo was the I/O sheild! it put ENOURMOS pressure on the mobo so i had to take it out. i hope the same doesnt happen to my new mobo!

HDDs installed

(this was before i had my GTX275, so i used the 8800GT instead. also i had the old TMG as my cooler too.

size comparison to the elite 341. and the elite is the one that works. my rig is not on

FLAME ON!

it worked for a little bit. it booted to OS occasionally! but when it doesnt this happened. and its not the BSOD were used to...btw it was flickering too. when i got it to work i updated BIOS and installed NB drivers. then i didnt POST. i got so upset!

ASUS strikes again i guess. my ram works, so there is no excuse.
well, i think the mobo bricked itself. pathetic.


so i returned it to newegg.
HERE IS THE REAL THING!!!
i wonder why it shipped in a MSI box...




some real good stuff! cant wait till my WC unit comes in

more pics when it comes
oh BTW, i have some ultra thermal paste, and im wondering should i use it, use the stock asetek TIM, or buy some thing else? if i need to buy something better, what should i get?

reserved for some more pics
here they are! final pics!

my fans <3

this cooler looks awesome, but look closly and you can see damage!



it was also missing parts (screws specifically) so i cant put it on
i want to ask for the parts or return it, but the seller hasnt responded...im *this* close to reporting the guy! damn you ebay.

anywho, here is my fully assembled rig stickers=win


this pissed me off, ruined the whole point of the case . but the cases that can fit AMD size and has the features i want are above my budget. i hate it when companies make stuff only for intellicrap

the CFX logo is a magnet, not a sticker

phenom logo is a magnet too and try to ignore the wallpaper ive had since i was 5

is that awesome or what?




since the dual rad is damaged and stuff, i put the fans on the top instead


lol 8800GT's sticker is peeling



i havent benched it because i dont have 3d mark yet, but i do have crybench (thats what i call it) to bench crysis
i'll upload some pics of that soon too

i tried on my old AM2+ mobo (it had ACC) but it didnt work, but i know its the right stepping.
idk if it will work with this, but CH4 has 8 pin power and 8+2 phase so i hope it works!
