Chile Rig - AMD FX in 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


When I moved to Chile two years ago I was unable to bring my other rigs from the US and as such I had to build a new daily driver from components sourced locally. I decided to go with FX because my place doesn't have heating and it gets cold in the winter, and because I like overclocking. Over the last two years I've changed out components whenever I found anything better, like going from a 600W Corsair non 80+ unit to a 1000W EVGA Supernova P2 and from a GTX 760 to an RX 480.




My current specs:
AMD FX 9590 (sometimes)
Asus Crosshair V Forumla-Z 990FX AM3+
G Skill 16GB DDR3 2400MHz CL10 (F3-2400C10D-16GTX)
MSI RX 480 4GB
Samsung 850 Evo
EVGA Supernova P2 1000W
Cooler Master 240mm AiO
NZXT H500 White

I use this machine to do some overclocking in my free time, but nothing too crazy due to the 240mm AiO. I have a few FX chips that I've recovered from the electronics recycler which I try to take as high as I can with the AiO. In my collection I have an FX-4100, 4130, 4350, 6120, 6350, 8320, 8350, 9590 plus a Phenom 1090T. I've done some experimenting and even got the memory up to 2600MHz CL10 with an FX-6350 at 5.3GHz, which is impressive for an FX chip imo.


Here we see an FX-6350 at 5.3GHz with 2600MHz DDR3 in Cinebench R15 scoring 642, which took 6th place worldwide on HWBOT


These days It's easy to spend a lot of time overclocking given that there isn't much else to do. I'll be building up my collection of AM3 and AM3+ chips, stay tuned.
