I made this rig a few months ago and i spent alot of money on it like 1000$ and this rig sucks as hell
the specs are ~
motherboard - GA-970A-DS3
ram(8GB) [1600mhz] - Corsair CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9
processor - fx 8350
harddrive - samsung 1tb 7200 rpm
gpu - SAPPHIRE HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5
case - cooler master elite 310
supply box - cooler master Thunder 500W
The reason i think it sucks i can not overclock my cpu in it
motherboard sucks with linux
cpu gets too hot like 85 C when i game
my monitor is 1600x900 so its not 1080p ?
My psu is dual rail
my gpu runs hot too 41 C on idele 85 C on gamming
Teamprature where i live sucks
if i drink coffee i am sweating like shit even though ac is on
So i come with these questions
Do u really need 1080p to play games ? why not 720 p ?
why do u overclock ? i get it makes cpu faster but isnt stock clock enough ?
how are single rails better psu cant u over clock with dual rail psu ?
should u buy uefi bios motherboard or normal one ?
how do u know how much vrm . phases motherboard buy with which cpu ?
I am a noob at all of this but i like to learn i screwed up and wasted alot of money
i want to build a second pc with some of these parts
so please help me :) thanks
i have another question everyone here in india has i5 or i7 they run it on stock clocks with stock cooler
why doesnt it get hot ? how can they run it with stock coolers on full load ?
is there an am3+ cpu that can be like this when it comes to heat ?
