This build mostly started with me needing a new PC and wanting to get the highest bang for the buck possible. That said, in my price range the only option was AMD. I've always been curious about the performance of an APU so i decided to go with the flagship Kaveri A10-7850K. So far i have manged very minor overclocking on an FX Series cooler but i plan to pick up water cooling at some point in the future. I'll also be updating with benchmark scores once i run them. As of now i have managed a stable iGPU OC @ 1020, haven't touched the CPU, and OC'd the RAM to 2133 9-10-10-24 @ 1.65.
Any thoughts, questions, or suggestions are welcome. I'd love to know what you guys think.
Ok, so i have ran firestrike and sky diver both on 2133 and 2400. Here are the results:
Sky Diver: 2133: 5927 2400: 6130
Firestrike: 2133: 1536 2400: 1598
These numbers are flat out not good... i was expecting more and i'm honestly thinking i may have some configuration problems.
