New AMD FX-8350 rig

I just wanted to thank Logan and crew for peaking my curiosity with their AMD FX-8350 vs. i5 3570/i7-3770K videos...

The result...

  • Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 Motherboard
  • AMD FX-8350
  • 8GB Kingston HyperX PC3-12800
  • 2x Radeon HD 7870 2GB CFx
  • 120GB Kingston HyperX 3k SSD
  • 2TB WD Caviar Red HDD
  • Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1 Soundcard
  • Corsair HX850W Power Supply
  • Corsair Graphite Series 600T Case

Runs nicely as both a Bitcoin Mining Rig and LAN Gaming PC :) No issues with CPU Bottlenecks thus far encountered. Very smooth during multi-tasking tasks in Windows and Linux (I currently run a 3930K @ 4.5GHz and can't detect a difference that I can when using my i7 920 for instance).

Thanks TEK!

give the results with and without the hotfix!
