So I had my system running great, everything was smooth. Then my fiancé blows up his computer. (Because he went cheap on the parts and didn't listen to me). So being the good girl I am I give him mine and use this as an excuse to build myself a new system.

Also his niece will be staying with us for a while, her parents sort out their issues, she is 8 and has never used a computer. So she needed one too.

"9350"

thinking.gif


Do you mean 9370 or 8350? And if you haven't ordered yet, can you swap it for an 8320E? Or 8370E if you got the 9370? If you can't, it's not really a big deal, but the -E chips are a bit less leaky and tend to hit higher speeds at lower voltages.

I was not aware that AM1 had aftermarket coolers at all. Neat! Probably won't be needed - the stock cooler is more than enough for the cute li'l 25W SoC - but, uh, bonus points or something?

I would like to echo what @shilka said. The D15 outperforms the H110i and is cheaper and quieter. If you can fit it in your case, I highly recommend it over any of the CLC coolers. This is not meant to include the Swifteh products. They outperform all the rest and maintain a competitive price point and decibel levels.

Or go with a dual tower air cooler like the Noctua NH-D15.
I like the H110i, I have used it in several builds. I have never used the others and really don't want to change out to something I don't know when what I do know works well for me. Price is not a factor in the build. I go with AMD because I like their support of open source and open standards over intel not because of price.

One of the reasons why the EK and Swiftech are better in because they are not closed off and the pump is not only much more powerful its also a much higher quality.

The H110 is still overrated overhyped and overpriced and there are much better options out there, sory but just because you like it does not make it good.
If price is not a problem then get a good cooler instead of those cheap and crappy CLC coolers from Corsair and the others.

Here watch this
Swiftech also has some new coolers which i think replace the H220x and H240x
These new ones are

H220 X2
H220 X2 Prestige
H240 X2
H240 X2 Prestige
H320 X2
H320 X2 Prestige

I am going to bet that all of those new ones are going to leave all of the Corsair / NZXT / Cooler Master and all the other CLC coolers in the dust and make them look like a joke.
There are also the EK Predator.

If Swiftech can get some decent retail distribution deals than they have a shot. The EK Predator was recalled wasn't it?

The 8350 can clock same as the 9xxx

I always recommend the cheapest FX8 (my 8310 @ 4.5 is just as fast as my 8350 at 4.5)

I would get a little stouter board than that Gigabyte if you plan on getting a 9590.
