Recommended Posts

Postingmy rig or lack of. Putting an FX6300 system together slowly while I wait a little longer to order a Ryzen R7 rig.

I scored a used Fx6300 + Gigabyte + gskill 16gb. 130$

Two 4k dells @60hz 240$

XfX RX460 130$

Ordered the rest of the system and waiting on it all to arrive. 

DIYPC case. 32$

WD 250GB SSD 80$

WD 1TB Blue 55$

3x orange sata cables 15$

 

Everything else is coming from the old rig. 

So heres some photos of the escapede so far. Old parts and new ones. Finished photos in a couple of weeks!

Old hardware is a box to be diagnosed and resold if possible.

The old AM2 motherboard got a nice cleaning. AMD64 X2 6400+ still looking good to me.

This chip has ran since July 2008 almost non stop with a 300mhz overclock. 3.2 to 3.5ghz on air.

And the rx460 right here. 

 

The system is tossed together hastly while the other components show up but when its all here ill post more. 

 

After its built its getting a nice Overclock, performance tuned, Benchmarked, stability tested and sold. 

 

Hopefully. I may piece it out and sell it. Then start on a really wild ryzen build next.

The first part has arrived. Not installed yet. The system currently runs at +1degC over room temp. Load is 15degC +.......

Cant wait to see what this huge thing can pull off. It Was made for 200watt CPUs not the 95watt FX6300.

Overclocking will begin once the rest of the components show up. Although technically I could start now..... 

Everything is shipped. waiting for the stuff! :)

Newegg is not only slow... forgot how to package items. I guess diypc is to blame as well.

Lets see how amazon does. Change up the colors a bit.

What kind of case are you getting? Very undecided here. I'm thinking a R200 by Corsair but that is only because a channel I watch uses allot of those on builds. 
Mid Tower is plenty big for me. Not into lights or a side glass.

If your not into lights or side glass...Corsair or thermaltake is what I would go for.

Depends on how much your into a system building too. water cooling, cable management, drive managers etc.

Ive always like this one myself

When I do a ryzen build im planning on using this myself.

This is the case I ordered. Im just building it for fun and selling it once its put together. Red and White themed. 

Overclocking  it. in going to ask a penny for it though  so I mightm be sitting on it a few months.

Finally got to sit down and tweak the two systems.

The FX8350 doesnt look to have much if any overclocking room on air. Maybe a couple hundred mhz max so I left it alone.

The FX6300 though was taken right up to 60deg C. and 4.5ghz (+1ghz!)

Turbo core was switched off on both and the benchmarks began.

CineBench R15:

494  FX 6300    <    FX8350  645

422 FX 6300 (No OC/Turbo on)

638 FX 8350 (Turbo on)

CineBench Open GL:

92fps RX470  >  RX480  83.17

 

3D MARK

Cloud Gate:

16840  FX 6300  <   FX8350  20210

TimeSpy:

 3199 FX 6300    <    FX8350 3796

3118 FX6300 (No OC/Turbo On)

 

All in all the 8350s one extra physical core seems to just give it that edge. Improvements with the overclock couldnt quiet catch up.

 

Really impressed though when it comes to the Time Spy. Only 3-8 frames per second difference in most of it.

 

8350 however with Turbo on. Just can't seem to perform better. It actually makes it run slower. 

 

8350 WINS. 

 

*edit* corrected numbers.

Here you go wombat. 

 

I tried selling my old AM2+ hardware but no one wanted it. So im rehousing it untill the cpu or mobo dies.

 

Went ahead and picked up this Versa case for only 30$.
