CPU Clock Rate

Description

I couldn't think of a name so I just named it that.

This is my first build ever and I am quite pleased with it. The system I had before was a Dell Dimension 3000, so going from that to this was a huge leap. This system preforms much better that that piece of crap I was using before. For now I am using the monitor that you see in the picture, but in the future I plan to purchase a monitor with a 1080p resolution. Future additions also include a 92mm and 120mm fan for the rear and side panel respectively, a 120 GB SSD, a CPU cooler, and a 6670 to run in crossfire with the APU.

What resolution is that monitor?

Roxastheman submitter 1 Build 5 points 40 months ago

1024x768 It is the monitor that came with the Dell Dimension 3000.

BoltActionWaffle 1 Build 9 points 40 months ago

Ofc I get downboted for a simple question, I think you'll be happy when you get a new 1080p monitor.

The monitor is very good. Got one of those with my dell too. Only problem is it's VGA input only.

Nice budget build, I don't think the 2400 RAM is going to make any difference but for that price I'm not gonna be a stickler about it haha

Grazzert 2 Builds 4 points 40 months ago

faster RAM is actually a non-negligible difference when used with an APU like OP has, but yeah, that's a freaking steal for that ram

Frostbyter 3 points 40 months ago

I thought faster RAM wit APU builds really improved the fps?

joe1134206 1 Build 4 points 40 months ago

"Non-negligible" = important (confused me for a second too)

Frostbyter 1 point 40 months ago

Ah. Ok lol.

Funkbass 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

It does. As Grazzert just said.

BoltActionWaffle 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

Oh ya, btw, If you want to use the Ram at 2400mhz, you need to use the XMP profile for the Ram.

Roxastheman submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

How do you use the XMP profiles? I got it to 1866 today, but I don't want to go any further unless I know for sure what I am doing.

BoltActionWaffle 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

You go into the bios and there should be a few profiles you can choose from.

Roxastheman submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

I need step by step dude I don't know where to go.

BoltActionWaffle 1 Build 3 points 40 months ago

Open up the bios, open up the advanced options, goto Ai tweaker then next to AI overclocking tuner, change it to "X.M.P"

Thank you, now it is running at 2400Mhz.

get a 7770 at least man its a good card for its price/performance or you can get a 7850 when you get the 1080p monitor.

ianchessure 1 point 40 months ago

Nice APU build, man. Excellent choice of parts. Its amazing you still have a 5:4 monitor, I love those things. Wish they'd actually bring them back.

Possumjones 1 point 40 months ago

I love that monitor too! It looks like ET. I want to do an APU build.

Nice budget build .

The A10-6800K supports up to DDR3-2133MHz memory and has a 100-Watt TDP.

I would like to ask you, did it work? Does the ram work good?

Roxastheman submitter 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

Well in the BIOS it says that it is running at 2400MHz. Is there somewhere else I can check to verify that it is indeed running at 2400MHz?

mattataki 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

The A10-6800K supports up to DDR3-2133MHz memory and has a 100-Watt TDP. So basically, that 2400Mhz ram cannot run at his full potential. It's best if he doesn't try that again or else he will end up with a faulty-er ram stick each time he let's it at 2400. It was certainly not a good idea to get that ram up to that frequency.

Quoted by: myself

Edit: That ASUS mobo is the only one I've seen supporting up to 2400Mhz. All others I've seen so far stop at 2133. I think it's that ASUS was looking in future-proofing their mobo since AMD is still using the FM2 chipset.

See this helpful chart about your APU and ram.

Wow this monitor here is, just, wow sooo amazing!

Roxastheman submitter 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

What?

xSWATxBadkid 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

It's sarcasm.

Well I probably should of added that I was going to put the 7750 in crossfire with the APU. Will it still not make a difference if I do that?

gabegabbert 3 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

I don't think it's possible to crossfire a 7750 with a A10 6800k. I beleive the only crossfire obtainable (without major tweaking) is a 6670. Similair performance anyway, and 50$ cheaper. As long as you get the DDR5 version! make sure of that.

That is just what it says on the box it does support a crossfire with a 7750. http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-353-AM

Alright, thanks for the advice.
