Only problem here. Either do away with the Z97 or get a 4690k.
>>
>>51607638
what do you recommend?
Thanks alot for the help btw
>>
>>51607739
Anything that's cheaper than the Z97 is fine, even a compatible H81 is fine if it suits your needs as far as features go. Just make sure it supports Haswell Refresh if you do decide to get something like that.

A Z97 without an unlocked CPU is a waste of money.
>>
>>51607930
thanks bro

Or you can bite the price and get a 4690k. Make sure you're fully informed about overclocking procedure before you fuck with it and you're golden.

Personally, i'd go with the 4690k.
>>
>>51607598
For the R9 390 I've had a lot of trouble with game crashes and blue screens (might just be me though). The only drivers that seem to ever work are the beta drivers and the card itself could single handedly power all of the Aushwitz ovens because of how hot it runs.

I'd try finding an nvidia card.

I haven't had the crashes and bluescreens
But mine is still hot as fuck and it struggles in games at 1440x900 where my friend with almost the exact same set up except he bought a 970 plays at 1080p 60fps no problem
I'm not mad but you should go with the 970
>>
>>51608328
>390 Struggles at 1440x900
>970 does 1080p 60fps
Confirmed for full of shit and Max Settings Fag.
>>
>>51608354
r 9390 still should not struggle in games whit max setting but yeah this guys full of shit 1440x900 whit r9 390 would not ever struggle just from the amount of sheer power in it
>>
UK here... I cringe every time I look at new hardware. The price compared to what some of you guys in the US pay is sickening...

Anybody know of good sites to actually buy hardware in the UK? There probably aren't any retailers that give discounts like newegg.
>>
>>51608274
R9 390 should max any games except for few title.
Whats your psu and proc?
Even my R9 290 max setting at 3200x1800.
>>
>>51608354
>>51608396

By struggle i mean it can't stay at or above 60
Where as my buddy can
And this is at full max settings
I don't need you to believe me maybe i have a defective card fuck if i know but it is disappointing
>>
>>51608449

>>51608449
psu is antec HCG 620w
>>
>>51607935
Only downside is the overlooking options are limited but since you have a locked cpu you won't be needing that, and trust me 3.3ghz is fine for all the way up to witchery 3 in ultra and your graphic card should be fine with no bottlenecking
>>
>>51608459
that deffo is defective or you have a bottleneck in your computer even r9 380 can run games at 2,560 x1,440 at max settings most of the time.
>>
>>51608476
Upgrade RAM, that's all I can think of.

DDR3 1600 is extremely cheap to come by these days, you can get 8 GB for $30.
>>
win 8 and 10 are shit, get a usb with at least 4gb and make a flash boot win 7 install
>>
>>51608509
well removing it and RMAing it is a no go because the mobo is so cramped that i can't hit the latch to release the card
>>51608526
I already have 8gigs at 1600
Do you think 16 will really make that much of a difference? I haven't seen a game use almost all of my ram yet
>>
>>51608549
8gb is the bare minimum these days you can easily get another 8gb for 30 and have smoother browsing experience but otherwise it does not make a difference at all unless you do production stuff

>the mobo is so cramped that i can't hit the latch to release the card
he fell for the small form factor meme
>>
>>51607598
I would use the extra 70$ to increase ram to 16gb and the speed to 1866mhz
>>
>>51608549
use a pen or something to get the latch you retard.
>>
>>51608328
Ive only recently started having display adapter crashes since battlefront.
>>
>>51608761
I have tried. Between the card's fans and heatsink and the heatsink on the board and that ram on top i havent been succesful
View this picture for reference

>>51608489
Look like your gpu is overheat or driver issue.
Try ddu to remove driver and reinstall driver before Crimson because of fan bug.
Or just download afterburner and up fan to 100%. Test and monitor clock/temp using gpuz.

I'd say pretty much everything about this build is better. If you're in US.
