ASRock FM2A85X Extreme 6 + AMD A10 5800k + 3DMark Vantage.

Over the last month I have been playing with the ASRock FM2A85X Extreme 6 and AMD A10 5800k CPU.
I was taking part in the ASRock FM2 competition over at HWbot.org and in a few hours the competition will be over.

The Best I was able to push the poor little integrated HD7660 video card to was 1533Mhz and 1290Mhz memory. With these clock speeds the max vantage score I reached was P10180 (5th at the time of writing)

The Platform is extremely fun and there is a lot to be gained when tweaking and understanding the power saving tools AMD have included and would recommend the ASRock FM2A85X Extreme 6 and A10 5800k combination to anyone in a hard beat that was looking for a good mid entry level gaming PC.

I have uploaded a lot of screenshots from the testing that was done so that you can see some the gains that can be found.
