Got the new system up and stable. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to build
Games are so fast on it! Doom 3 can run without jerks at High Quality, setto 1024x768 and with 2x antialising, with the rsest set to high! Not bad huh?
3DMark 05 gets about 1-13 frames fps, and thats the fastest it gets... and the 2nd test fails because of a error message "out of video memory" :S Don't know what that means... I set the AGP aperture size to 256mb when the card is 128 to try and make it use system mem, and the next test ran at 0fps and then crashed with same error, so no difference changing that really...
CPU runs at about 50 degrees C on full load, with the motherboard set to Normal mode, at 2310mhz instead of default 2244mhz. I can make it turbo to run at 2376mhz with temperatures getting to around 65 degrees. Anyone have this motherboard to know what to change to get a higher overclock using OC Guru?
Its also quite a quiet system too... maybe a bit louder than the last.
