Hello my parts have come and here how it went and runs short test,
I had some problems when building, first i noticed that the newer boards use 9 screws insted of my old 6 srew bord so down to the basement and look for monting screws, efter sorting that prob out i thought okey now all will go smoth and strigt forward from here, Yeah right! *sigh i started updating to latest bios i had prepaired before, then went on and went true every page and made changes accordingly to my preferences. Now the ahci setting from [bleep] showd me life shoudn`t be easy all the time, windows didnt find the drivers that i prepaired or that was in w7 x64 folder on disk
i mean come on! it find drivers when i pointed to x86 folder in vista or xp folder, but that sulotion didnt feal good in my book so...
Efter many atemts and different drivers i did it the long way installed as ide, regestry hacked on ahci went back to bios and changed settings again, now it worked with ms std drivers and then efter reboot installd amd ahci drivers. There done.
Next problem My keybord Dinovo media desktop laser (bluetooth) constantly shut of and some times mice to, old usb mice to the rescue!
(the problem was that the board needed a amd usb driver directly for my bt reciver to work as intended.
After strating that hole mess up it runs pretty smooth! untill i stumble on to the next litle quirc of an problem the gpu extended sceen setting and this in my head have allways nvidia handle better and sutch where the case here to. first it hade to fix the layout of my screens easy sead and done true w7 setting instaed (
then my gpu woudnt let me use my hole hd tv sceen size black bars around the hole picture efter ALLOT of searching in ccc i found the setting to fix it but to use this setting i nedded to install hydravision driver, the setting where grey`d out before then just drag the overscan setting from 15% standard setting to 0% and Bingo was his name!
NOw to how it runs efter spending a day decrypting my system disc again it bearly noticable that my system is decrypted. i think the aes ni instructions play a role here plus 2 cores more ofcorse
, it monts my external drives on startup as its nothing and the hole rigg just feals very very fast, i where a little worried about all the bad reviws this cpu had but i can say it beat the [bleep] out of my old c2 duo e8400 3.00ghz.
xbmc and full hd vid runs smoth as a kitten, i will post again later to let you know how it handles games, first out batman arkham city, and dirt 3, then i going to test how well it handles extreme setting on crysis two in 1920x1080 res.
