if you want a good value card at the 980 prices

look at the AMD Fury cards like the Sapphire Tri-X

every performance graphs shows the Fury edging out the 980

you should be able to get easily 4.5GHz with the liquid cooler but you prob need to find a way to cool the mobo VRMs

you prob wont need 1500watts

but then again

you got an excuse to get another 980ti if you want more POWER!!!

its actually the mobo

unlike the 990fx which have 8 power phases

the 970 is using 4+2 or 6+2 power phases forget how many phases.

wets pants

oh shoot...

how much power does your rig pulls from the wall?

i noticed if that is normal for a watercooled rig is the air bubble or gap where the liquid enter/exits the radiator.

air trapped in the radiator dont look like a good thing

yea i am using a 8600GT

but because its a DDR2 GPU i only getting like 10fps in Ungine Heaven at 720P med

unless your 8400GS is running DDR3

the 8400GS is indeed slower than the Intel offering which uses your system DDR3 RAM as VRAM

he right

the 8400GS is a DX10 GPU

the Intel HD graphics has DX11 support

if you are looking at Cooler Master coolers

look for the Gemini series

they are slim coolers but have huge fins which are wide for cooling

the plastic wrap can cause the heat to get stuck inside the casing if it blocks the air vents

you might want to remove them

i wish i could afford a rig like yours

*opens wallet

wow the Cosmos 2 is still on sale?

and it still ungodly expensive for a super heavy case

noticed you didnt use any M.2 SSDs

oh wait the 4 way SLi facepalm

i would like to see if possible 4 way CF Fury GPUs in comparision between SLi and CF scaling for 3 to 4 GPUs

question about that PSU you are using

what brand is that?

maybe for your next paycheck

be sure to look at a better PSU if the current one is kinda trash

I pretty sure your rig is Windows 8.1

for the APU to shine in games

you do need fast Dual DIMM RAMs like 2133MHz ones

your next upgrade should now include 8GB or 16GB DDR 2133 or 2400MHz RAMs

second is the CPU cooler can be swapped for the Coolermaster 212 Evo or the 212X

third is the SSD for the shiny Win 10 later

Comment reply on JohnnyBCC's Completed Build: AMD 860K w/ R9 380

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

the 860K should be a great CPU to pair with the R9 380 which is a R9 285 refresh

what i suspect is the CPU is throttled back due to heat from the CPU or the mobo VRMs

you need to get more airflow into the case.

The M4 is a great cooler

but the Asus board lack VRM cooling since they omitted the heatsinks on the VRMs

if possible

you can buy classic RAM sinks with thermal double sided tape and stick to the VRMs and let the fan on the CPU cooler to blow over them

that way you can push the APU much better without worrying about VRM throttling

also for the best results of the APU+GPU dual graphics

try to bump both the APU iGPU part to 1GHz and the 250 to 1GHz and above and also clock the system RAM to 1866 and above.

if you can search ebay

a few sellers may just be selling the IO shield

the seller is usually from Taiwan or China and they can ship the item to you via air mail

my QX6800 board which is the GA-EP45-UD3 didnt have the IO shield as well but I bought one from ebay which is sealed and brand new without a single rust

i got the exact same OCZ RAM as you only that I have since swapped to 8GB worth of 4 sticks of Kingston and Geil RAM

at 1080P? :o

no issues with mine although i am using the stock Intel copper center cooler

if you are looking for HDD go for the 1TB WD Blue

many may disagree with me but i say pick the Kingston V300 128GB as your boot OS drive

i using one now on my HTPC and it get the job done.

too bad no UEFI support on this board or my boot to Win 8.1 will be quite speedy

I almost got the same board as you but mine accepts DDR2 and DDR3

the G41M-Combo

what fps you get with the 960 with your Q6600?

or how much OC could you do with your Q6600?

I got 3GHz the moment i install my DDR3 1333MHz 4GB RAMs

that because the board auto OC my fsb to 1333 from 1066

the decent upgrade will be a SSD

also you might want to get a CM cooler if the case fit it

the CoolerMaster N600 will give you plenty of room to work with
