APU
redoing A10-5800K build....

8 posts in this topic

So, pretty much my computer failed, so, I am in the process of getting everything set up and configured, building blocks are:

  • 2x8GB G.Skill Sniper series DRR3 (CAS 9) 1866Mhz
  • A10-5800K APU
  • Stock heatsink
  • Power Mac G5 case
  • Epower 450 Watt PSU
  • Asrock FM2A85X extreme4 Motherboard
  • wireless card (airlink) AWLH4130
  • Linksys AE3000-NP wirelesss adapter
  • Samsung 840 PRO 128GB SDD
  • 320GB old Power Mac G5 HDD

Today I have:

  1. removed from cardboard box, disassembled
  2. Put back APU, RAM, attached PSU (24 and 8 pin) and connected SDD
  3. Installed Windoze 7 (64 bit, home premium) from flash drive
  4. Fixed the fact that the computer wants to default to 1440x1050 resolution (wtf?)
  5. Installed a lot of drivers.
  6. Installed Overlord 
  7. Installed Warcraft 3

Complete:

  1. Ensure that the RAM is really operating at 1866Mhz.  done.
  2. Overclock the GPU.  GPU at 1012Mhz, stable.
  3. Get the wifi adapter installed
  4. Install Steam + other games
  5. CPU overclocked to 4.3Ghz, boost disabled.  Stable.
  6. RAM overclocked to 2400Mhz, forget timing, will get later, stable.

 

For future:

  1. cut holes in the Power Mac G5 case
  2. Mount the Mobo in the Power Mac G5 case.
  3. Get a dGPU?

Pictures will come once I get motiviated enough to plug Lumia 920 into laptop XD
