    upgrade of PC

    So, nothing news at AMD, maybe FX Vishera is the last one enthusiast CPU. Unfortunatelly. So for glory I must change few components. My old work PC was Visheras, new is Vishera too. But..

    Old one:
    FX-8350 1229PGN, great one, 5700+ validation with 20 C ambients, 5 GHz stable for 30 minutes
    Corsair H100, very loud pump after almost 3 years
    Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z 990FX
    Asus HD6870 DirectCu TOP
    2x 4GB GSkill TridentX 2400 MHz cl10
    Many HHD+1x SSD HyperX 3K 240 GB

    So, I wanted clean CPU and after few months installing bought new cooler and GPU. New components for upgrade were Saphire R9-270X Toxic, yes, I have Asus version too but Asus I need for benchmarking and writing the reviews.
    Next component is Swiftech H220 allinone liquid cooling. I bought two Corsair fans into the case. And I was thinking some time for CPU...Ok, I wanna try FX-9590 in my daily setup . Good one, not the best. 1.4 V and 4700 MHz seems not bad for me.

    lovely Swiftech

    Cleaning and remounting old components. I was surprised about dusts in radiator...And Ultra Kaze 3000rpm as bonus fan

    There is old one HD 6870

    You can see my PSU :-)

    FX-9590 1327PGS

    CPU block is at CPU, now snap the radiator

    PC need GPU

    New PC is finish

    And performance? Old one I used ussualy at decent settings, I tested new 3D Mark Sky Diver:

    With new settings, thanks to GPU mainly, the score is double almost.

    Thumbs up

    Nice Upgrade there Michael , I like it , easy to do and expandable in the future if you want to add another water-block and more radiators. I had the same problem on a triple rad I had on a custom h2o loop , that pc was on my garage and I accumulated dust for a year and forgot about cleaning the rad until I started having bsod with cpu at stock , it was much worse than yours , fully cover in dust from top to bottom and no air would pass thru the triple rad , we better start cleaning our radiators more often bro
