So I acquired some new-to-me parts just recently, and I finally got around to take some pics and working out all of the little bugs in the system. So here goes:
The old hardware:
(Figured I'd justify the old parts by giving them nice pictures, even though my camera is crap ._.)
Annnd the new stuff, not many pictures outside of the pc, got too excited
Messing around in the BIOS, and saw that ASUS spelled Memory "Memeory"
So, now for the specs:OLD
-ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ overclocked to 2.9 "daily driver speed"
-2GB OCZ Gold DDR2 800mhzNEW
-AMD Phenom II X6 1045T 2.7ghz stock (non oc'ed yet)
-8GB Corsair Vengeance LP Blue 1600mhz (Running at 1333mhz because the Thuban doesn't like 1600mhz)
And the rest of the parts that stayed the same:
-3x200GB drives, Maxtor, WD, and Seagate
-Xigmatek Gaia 120mm cooler
-NZXT Source 210
-NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Speed Controller
-Cheap Cooler Master Fans
-Ancient Cooler Master 460W
-EVGA 9800GT 1GBWhat's next...A more powerful PSU
SSDHopefully a 7870
and after that?Current Specs...
-8GB Corsair Vengeance LP Blue 1600mhz (2x4GB)
-AMD Phenom II X6 1045T @ 3.4ghz
-1TB Seagate Barracuda
-ASUS GTX 660 2GB DirectCU II OCAs for benchmarks, the only thing I've done so far is play BL2. With my old setup, I'd get 10-15fps with everything turned down. With the new setup, I get 30-40fps with pretty much everything on/max at 1920x1080. So my CPU is no longer a bottleneck for my GPU *Will update benchmarks when I get time to run them*I also ran P95 SmallFFT for 11 minutes, and didn't get higher than 34C. It idles around 16C via CoreTemp, not sure if these are correct. I will be updating with overclocks, but it's going to wait until I can get a new power supply, don't trust this one.
So, thoughts? Opinions? Any feedback is welcome
