I'd like to see some pics!
I have only had my rig for little more than a month,and I had to take a duster can to it already.

I am actually not sure why this has been moved. It was originally in the AMD Build Logs section. But for some reason a Mod moved it to the CPU section.
I'm a little confused as well lol

I just looked for a "Talk to Mod/Admin Section" but didnt see one. Since Im new here i really dont know any mods by name to pm about this either lol

You might want to look at this RAM, same price and much better
The parts with the pictures came in one of those combo deals that newegg throws up daily. So all those parts are on the way already
However I was thinking about selling the ram, and getting Gskill ram to replace it.

I just grabbed the 8 gig kit,hopefully it solves my stability issues.
@ OP,even though it says "designed for Intel" it works in AMD motherboards as well. I had to ask about this myself on here. IMO,Newegg should list it compatible with AMD Phenom II as well.
Yea sometimes that throws me off. I'd imagine people who aren't familiar with computer parts wouldn't purchase it just because newegg says that aswell. Bad move on Newegg haha

I'm in need of a computer now, and i feel i might have jumped the gun a bit on the parts. But I should be ok, i really couldnt see anything im doing needing the bulldozer either

Future compability with Bulldozer/Komodo CPU's

Asus, Msi, Gigabyte have some..
The mobo came in the combo deal. If theres a possibility for me to be able to sell this mobo and get an AM3+ socketed mobo with the money, then ill think about doing that.

I do game but its not the sole reason for getting this computer. I'm using this computer for everything. And i wanted a X6, saw a friends build who has one and really liked it.

Luckily my dad has TONS of those duster cans at his work that we can get. I lucked out with that.

IMO, and probably many others here on OCNet, the RAM should be the least of your worries. As I mentioned, the PSU is very vital to any build; especially if you plan to OC. I really would have just bought 2 item combo deals and gotten different components. I know having a X6 is cool and all, but unless you are doing CPU intensive things (such as Video editing, folding, ripping), I don't see a reason to get one at the cost of a reliable PSU. I would be willing to go further and say that a dual-core is all you probably need for now.

FYI, we were wanting to see Hobo's rig, not yours. Obviously, you must be new to OCNet. No offense.

If this thread had been moved, it would be obvious (green arrows?). Obviously, you are a terrible liar. Haha.

Would look for a better gpu than the 5770, much more powerful gpus for just a few dollars more. The 5850 sapphire xtreme is 140 on newegg and you can find 460s and 6850s in similar price range too.

h70 is great cooler but might be overkill. If you are on a budget I would take some of the cpu cooler funds and put them towards the gpu, for a better balanced computer.

I can tell you from experience that Seagate HDDs are crap... and so are Rosewill PSUs. I have had nothing but issues from both in the past.
