    Damn, I wish it had 2 PCIe x16 slots. Then I would have triple crossfired them!

    We ended up getting our A8-3850 to 3.625GHz as you can see above, while managing to use the 1866MHz memory divider that brought our RAM in at an even 2000MHz DDR.
    Nice! When I first saw the 1866MHz RAM slot I was thinking, "then I won't be able the use the full potential of the 2000MHz RAM from the giveaway". But a little BIOS update and OCing and viola!
    And 3.625 GHz is a good OC, I hope that it will be good for 24x7

    Checking out storage performance, we can see that the USB 2.0 performance seemed to be down just a little bit.
    What? The graphs say otherwise! As per the graphs, they are the fastest of the lot!

    SSD performance on the other hand is up by about 10% which is impressive.
    VERY impressive!

    Above you can see we've got our G.Skill Flare kit running at 2147MHz DDR with a 7-9-7-24 setup. This is the highest we've seen this kit go at these timings to date, but really, this was only the start of our memory success.
    I'm impressed!
