This is my AMD Power House. The CPU, Ram and Video Cards are all AMD. You will notice that when I find brands / manufactures I like, I stick with em. The Motherboard and Video Cards are both Asus. The Fans, Power Supply and the H105 240mm rad & pump are all Corsair. I do most of my recordings with FRAPS hence the Raid 0 just for recording. also because of the raw data of FRAPS, I needed a machine that could run max settings on a game and record in full detail @ 60 FPS without missing a beat, and she can handle it. Sure she turns into a space heater but she has a total of 10 fans and a 240mm rad to help keep her cool. And yes i know the floor looks horrible but I'm in the process of building my man cave and the floor being repainted is on the end of the list. UPDATE: She is currently testing out a quad RAID 0 for storage. The AMD Power House is currently a test bench for my soon to be Ryzen build.
This is what love looks like
The Door light I installed has a quick disconnect for when I need to take the door off
doesn't she look mean
That 220 Watt FX-9370 puts this 240mm rad to work

Thanks, I've been working on her for a while. I would Like to get a newer designed motherboard but even AMD says its one of the very few that give the FX9xxx series 220 WATT CPU enough power feed to keep em happy without melting the power delivery off the board haha
Yeah it's a bit difficult finding 220W capable boards now, I was thinking of getting the new MSI 990FX board with USB 3.1 and getting a 9XXX series chip but the board doesn't support them lol I really hope we get some awesome performing chips with Zen next year.
Yeah, I'm sure it's not on AMD's end though, the board partners might just not want to build higher end boards for a chip that the mass majority of people won't be using lol
oh, in no way am i blaming AMD. but usually higher end boards come with abilities that almost no one ever uses haha. like ASUS ROG gamer boards. they are able to take the load but ASUS hasn't put out a flagship AM3 board since late 2012 but they do for Intel every year. just would like to see em devote more to AMD is all. and yeah AMD are still using same sockets but other things are getting updated like 3.1 USB and better PCIe
