    I see how I can limit a bit. I don't need a blue ray drive so that's like $60 less the CPU cooler I'd rather go cheaper water cooling or the GEMINII s524.
  6. i doubt geminii will satisfy you, please google about geminii review and compare to 212 evo. is there any personal reason why whould you want a geminii? :)

    edit: i found one http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-EVO-CPU-Cooler-Review/1407/6

    I had the GEMINII cooling a 3770k and it was pretty good temps. 32-34 on idle and on load around 64 with prime 95
  8. if your fx 8350 is not used for rendering things or workstation tasks, there is no reason to get it.

    8 core awesomeness for one. Just with my 965 black edition I was running skyrim on ultra with 60 fps @ 4ghz and a 6870. It will be fine, it is cheaper though just by a bit, and it has the 8core awesomeness and hopefully will get ebtter overtime as more cores are utilized.

    Its not really your problem if i need it or not. The main reason im getting the 8350 is because of socket upgradeability. Lga 1155 is dead and if steamroller matches i7 single thread at $100 cheaper thats a STEAL

    I have high hopes for amd they fired alot of designers of bulldozer and look at their result. Piledriver is awesome!
  12. ^ i agree with all of you...

    let us be happy with our own build. avoid debates on internet because it will not solve any single simple tiny thing :)

    I'm not saying AMD will die but what I am saying is you get what you pay for when it comes to computers..... AMD holds the budget end of the market while Intel holds the high end - enthusiast end of the market.


    I of all people was upset at bulldozer but piledriver seems to brought back amd back in the safe for now zone the troll guy saying amd is gonna die off is just plain idiotic if their cpus die they hold the best gpus in the market cmon!
