Description

So this is my first full on gaming build. I am upgrading from a AMD E-450 clocked at 1.65 ghz :P. I absolutly love the raw power this gives me, and i will make more upgrades to the future :) Hope you enjoy the pictures! (cable mang is kinda ****** but whatev)

How does the 750k perform? Have you OC'd? What did you do to OC because I can't find anything on the A88X chipset + the 750k?

Hey! back again (posting at 6:07 PM) and ive ran some stability test and real life application performance tests. One MAJOR issue with this moboxcpu is that when you go into the "AsRock A Tuning" sweet and change it to "Performance Mode", It will COMPLETELY lock up the system within a matter of minutes. I do believe it freaks out the cpu because the graphics card stops responding (fans shut off/ monitor shuts off) and it locks up all chassis fans, but the cpu cooler still runs at normal speed. Also, if you have DDR3 1600/1866/2133 mhz ram, DO NOT put them in the A1 and B1 slots, this makes the mobo see the ram as 800mhz, but when put into the A2 and B2 slots they run at 1600mhz from post. Other than that I don't see any other issues with this mobo/cpu. It copies files almost instantly to me. Draging 3.6GB of data from my backup drive only took 2min (with USB-BOOST ON) and it is also quite snappy at youtube/netflix streaming. I get good frames in games aswell with this combo. In MineCraft i can get WELL over 60fps in a normal map, altho i did open a map with ALOT of blocks placed on the ground and it dipped to around 35-40fps. In Bioshock 2 it runs around 60fps with hardly ANY dips, and it also runs TF2 at blistering frame rates. I am honestly impressed so far! :)

Well, I haven't been able to put on the hyper 212 yet. I was sitting there for a hour trying to figure out how to set the brackets right and everything :P I'm running the stock cooler as we speak and it is actually preforming up to par. I can run bioshock 2 at high with out it going over 58C!! The 750k performs at what i need. I use some light video editing and RAW editing and it runs great! I also work in FL STUDIO and NEVER run into lag. The stock cooler is quiet as hell as well 0.0 nothing more it is great!

Glad to see you checking in! It's been 5 months, and I really haven't had a problem! Overclocked to 4.1ghz with the AsRock XBoost, and a overclock on the GPU aswell. I'm very surprised with this GPU (r9 270x). I got it to overclock to 1142mhz on the core, and 1500mhz on the memory without it going over 75c! I've somehow used over 500gb of data already lol. Gaming performance is very VERY swell at 900p. I can get usually 50-60FPS in FarCry 3 at high (no AA, i don't really care :P) 60+ FPS in Battlefield 3, 60+ FPS in RaceRoom, 60+ FPS in GMOD, and the only game i have a problem with is Crysis 3. I can't get past 30 FPS on medium (900p) and for 720p i can get 45 FPS at medium. Rendering performance is good too! Lightroom render time for correcting color and roto brush work takes about 10sec to render a file. Premiere and AfterEffects combined together take longer to render, but MUCH faster than my old computer! LOVE havin the 8gb of RAM for using VFX in AfterEffects and Premiere. Hopeing to make upgrades in the summer (ie 1080p screen, a kaveri CPU, and hopefully a next line nvidia gpu in Christmas time!) Hopefully making a glamor video once i find my video gear again! Thanks for checking back!

Yeah! I was going to try Kaveri and see what comes after that. If i get the option to change mobo/cpu id most likely get broadwell (refresh) and a z97 board. I was actually considering getting the 8350 as my first CPU when i was configuring builds! Maybe i'll consider getting AMD after Kaveri bc there's a rumor going around that AMD was working on a new X86 or X99 CPU!!!
