My pure-AMD PC

Discussion created by oktober on Apr 10, 2016

Description

This is the rig I use for my everyday gaming. Before getting to the current status, it went through many iterations:

 

- First one included an AMD Athlon X2 and an NVIDIA Geforce 8800 GT (a true oven)

 

- What followed was an AMD Phenom II X4 945 bundled with a Sapphire HD 7700

 

- The second to last iteration included the current AMD FX 8320 with a stock cooler, and a Sapphire HD 7870...

 


... And then we get to the current one. 4 good fans plus the cooler fan bundled with great airflow help keep things cool. When the time of Zen will come, so will liquid cooling, to keep both temperatures and possible noise as low as possible.
