Note: Using Intel 900p (SSDPE21D280GASX) and 2x WD Black 6TB 256mb (WD6003FZBX) however parts are not available on PCPP
Everything has been customized to fit in the case, and provide the best thermal performance. GPU replaced all thermal pads and grease, added thermal pads to backplate heatsink and modified IO Plate for better airflow. CPU is de-lidded with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, and heatsink is applied with Kryonaut. Includes 2x EK Vardar 3000 RPM fans and 1 exhaust fan that was included with the case (to make it look balanced) Motherboard PCH and VRM's are sinked properly with Minus Pad 8's, All the cables are routed to not block as much airflow as possible.
Temps are recorded after they stabilized running OCCT, First screenshot is while just browsing the web,, second is after 30s stopping the test. It will get quite loud during load tests that is by design (I would rather it get loud and not overheat, than overheat) but during normal operation, fan speeds dont break 1,800RPM and noise is similar to the breeze through an open window. It is inaudible through all headphones. Total max power consumption reported by Kill-A-Watt is around 500W,
Max CPU power usage reported by HWiNFO is 136W Max GPU power usage reported by Nvidia Inspector is 300W typically around 285 during normal use
CPU is set to 5.2Ghz during benchmarking, 5.1Ghz with vcore at 1.479v for normal use to keep noise down GPU is set to +200/+200 Overclock with 112% max power The Titan V is set on a custom fan curve that puts the Fan to 100% at 75C, and it maxes out at that. There is an additional temperature probe that measures the back IO temp and adjusts the case fan accordingly. It never reaches higher than 77C. The CPU never reaches above 80C
Note: While running prime benchmarks, the CPU will blue-screen at 5.2Ghz after about 45 seconds, I did try modifying the voltages up to 1.55, and was unable to make it stable, however even at those voltages, the temperature never reached above 92C, The fan/heatsink combo is more than capable of dissipating a lot of heat at the expense of excessive noise.
Keep in mind that to me, it was critical to have as much fast HDD storage as possible, that is the reason behind the RAID 0 setup and the case choice. Every smaller SFF case does not allow you to fit 1 3.5" drive, let alone finding the place to jam a second.
