$2000 Complete System Build - Page 5

post #41 of 53
The 1090T is pretty nice, and with that mobo just flipping the oc switch on takes you from 3.2 to 3.8 something. I know you want more, just stating my own experience. I'm only using air cooling which is why I haven't tried pushing the OC beyond the oc switches yet.

It's nice to have that feature, but the only reason I selected this motherboard is because of the native SLI support and AM3 socket. I am currently looking up information about overclocking the 1090T on this motherboard so I can see what potential I am looking at.

Get a Radeon HD 6970 and save your money.

EDIT: I see what you did there. I would still go amd + ati all day. Price to performance simply can't be beat.

EDIT 2: I see a usb wireless adapter in there. Gaming on wireless is bad to start but if you throw in a usb bottleneck, you can't do much of anything.

I have to go Wireless since the the router and modem are in the other room next to me. I am like 30 feet from the router and have no connection issues.

So you would suggest get a single 6970 and get another one later?

I had the ipod in there for my wife, but I have removed it for the time being and will add it back when I order my parts. It now sits around $1780

You don't necessarily need the thermal compound, as many good quality heatsinks (Noctuas for example) come with decent thermal compound. Take a look at the rig in my sig, I built it for 1500 (CAD, with a lot of Price Match) before tax, no shipping costs. I plan to crossfire and my 2500k is at 4.7ghz prime95 stable on air. Just suggesting.

I originally wanted to go Sandy Bridge, but you know the recall and all that jazz, so I decided to go this route unfortunately. The $10 extra dollars really doesn't worry me to much and I have used Arctic Silver 5 before and will never use anything else.

Edit: Upon looking further into the thermal compound that comes with the cooler, I think I will give it a try and if I need to I will just order the AS5 later.
