Default Re: AMD T1090 system ordered

Waiting for the case, today it should show up, is there any special drivers or patches I need to be aware of with AMD. Not too long ago, I remember having to have all sorts of new patches/drivers for AMD machine, I don't want any surprises.

Hmmm. Not that I know. I've always built AMD simply because cheaper price and I don't remember any price changes.

Runs pretty hot, even though where I'm at is a den that is pretty warm anyways, had to setup the ram to the correct timings. But everything runs great, temps are like CPU 45c idle - 57c load Chipset 50c idle - 59c load. I don't think I'll overclock, cause of the temps, maybe this winter I'll try something, but not in this climate.

Nice! Have you gotten a chance to play games on it yet? If so, impressions? Noticable difference from a quad?

Yes a little, most difference I've noticed is on Sins of a Solar empire, when I normally would get to huge battles, it would really start to hog down the ol' quad core system. But on this system, it really seems to run a lot better then before once we get to the point of millions of things going on at the same time. Also, UT3 seems to run extremely more smooth on this system, BFBC2 seems about the same. The only issue is I'm playing on an LCD that is 1280x1028 resolution, with an 8800ultra graphics card. So there's the possibility that my card could be limiting games like BFBC2 from shining like it could, or it could be just the resolution.

I have yet to play SC2 on it, which I would really like to do, so hopefully within the next week. I'm really enjoying this system, it started right up with no hiccups, and everything is running great, the only real minus is the heat, but it's not too bad.

Ya know, I'm pretty impressed so far and did not expect an amd proc to really be this good. I'm happy though, I remember the good ol days when amd had the first 1ghz proc. Course I had one..
