Xhair IV Xtrme Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i have gone through 4 boards, 3 CPUs, 7 VGA's(some were sets of two), 2 brands of 8GB DDR3, and one case, PSU, HDD raid set.

All of this within one month

Starting with the first board:
  • MSI 870A Fuzion....burnt NB to a crisp
  • MSI 890FXA-GD70...didnt like benchmarks
  • Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5....liked the benchmarks and ease of overclocking but....


    ...Newegg recieved new stock on ASUS so i jumped and bought it
  • Crosshair IV Extreme
Now the CPU:
  • Athlon II X4 645...wanted to go waaaay faster
  • Phenom II X6 1075T(didnt have the 1090T in stock at Frys)....1 week later saw the 1100T in stock so...
  • Phenom II X6 1100T...Satisfied

On to the VGA's:
  • XFX 5750....nice but it just didnt feel right ya know :/
  • 2x ASUS 5770's....benched nicely, but i wanted more again
  • 2x XFX 5770's....Benched a little higher and had two DVI-D for my monitors
  • MSI R6970...oddly enough when i benched it, it only loaded 50% of the gpu and scored lower than the 2 XFX's....returned...then i saw
  • XFX 6870 Black Edition...Reasonably priced, OC'd out of the box, very possible that i will Xfire it

To the Ram:
  • Patriot G2 8GB set of two 4GB....BSOD on two boards
  • Patriot Sector 5 1600EL 8GB....getting 8 more next friday

So i now have a non-BSOD stable 4.0GHz Crosshair Extreme cooled byy one Scythe Ultra Kaze and one Thermaltake 94 CFM AF0026 that acts as the intake and HDD cooler.

I will be Prime95 over night to test stability and i dont suspect i will have a problem
