Description

Edit:

Thank you so much for the feature! Very much appreciated, a lot of work went into everything!

A quick note in case someone notices, I switched out my Bitspower monoblock for the EKWB one (there are pictures of both).

Wear to start....

This build started as this: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/qgFtt6

I wasn't completely happy with everything, so I started this build over the last few months. Let start off with some of the custom times.

Case Mods - 19 holes drilled in total nothing overly major except the spacing on the res holes had to be spot on. The goal was to minimize the tubing from the front side unlike my previous build.

Custom Cables - Almost every cable in the case is custom made to length, the exceptions being the CaseLabs cables that were already sleeved or the USB 3.0 that I was unable to sleeve. Went with Shade 19, Carbon Red, and Blackest Black.

Cooling - Mix of Aquacomputing, EKWB, Bitspower and Singularity. All the Rads are EKWB 1x XE480, 1x CE560, 1x CE280. Singularity Res's and Mounts, Bitspower matte black fittings, EKWB GPU blocks, and Monoblock, Aquacomputing Aquaero, D5 pump and flow meters communicating via Aquabus. Mayhems Pastel coolant, red and dark grey.

GPU - Titan XP with shunt mod. Pretty happy with how this tuned out, everything seems to just run smoother without a power limit even though it is very minimal performance gain.

CPU - have previously delidded the 7980xe, but purchased the 4.5ghz prebin from Silicon Lottery. VERY happy with this purchase even with the premium. (have the old delid one if anyone is interested).

A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this. I have some additional photos in the build log Overclock. Happy where everything is at right now. Before anyone asks, I have no earthly good reason to build this, except for the challenge and making everything exactly the way I wanted.

Ended up settling on the following settings for everything for 24/7 use:

DRAM - 4000 mhz 17-17-17-37-T1 timings @ 1.4v CPU - 4.5ghz @1.125v Cache - 3.0ghz @ 1.05v GPU - 2075 gpu and 1583 on the ram

Aida64 stable 1 hour - max temps (only on a couple cores) 83C Prime95 stable 1 hour - max temps (only on a couple cores) 99C GPU stable on all benchmarks I have ran - max 40C Memory stable at 5000% RAM Test no errors

Was able to max boot into windows at 5.2ghz @1.42v lol....ran benchmarks @ 5.0ghz 1.35v-1.38v depending. Wattage at the wall when running these was 1400 plus watts (GPU included).

TimeSpy and Firestrike results so far (for 2 GPU systems):

TimeSpy Extreme - 9th TimeSpy - 11th FS Ultra - 8th FS Extreme - 4th FS - 12th

Only lose about 5-10% on 24/7 settings which I am very pleased with.

Over $15k worth of computer parts dangling and relying on the robust build quality of an 80 dollar ikea drawer. You're a very brave individual.

Great build bro , very nice . How much liquid did u need for both loops?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

About 1.2 liters for the CPU that’s a ruff guess. And pretty close to 2 for the GPU.

Great tube layout bro . How is the tube up above handling the heat that comes out of the rad ?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Not even a factor, I think the roast even after one night running a stress test was like 32C so it’s not hot enough to make it sag or anything.

That is great bro . Thanks for the replay , I need to do the same thing but was a little worried its gonna get hot and the o rings gonna be loosening and leak will happen .

  • 17 months ago

Yah it just doesn’t get hot enough, the small red spot there you see is from when I drained the loop I opened up that tube to let air in and forgot to wipe it off.

I honestly feel the same way, I wish Gskill made this model of ram in the non RGB, but they don't. One of the things I am not 100% happy with on this build, but it looks better than having it off completely.

  • 17 months ago

Should have gotten the Rampage VI Extreme and 128GB of ram, seeing that you spent that much money and also have Titans. And could have also spent another $5000 on Titan Vs

  • 17 months ago

less performance out of 128 gb, and you cant SLI Titans lol. I have the Extreme working for another build, the Apex overclocks slightly better.

Why is your CPU 1200 dollors over msrp?

  • 17 months ago
  • 2 points

Purchased from Silicon Lottery. It was the 4.5 ghz binned version that they don't currently have in stock, they have only had a handful that have tested that high, but i paid a premium to get a good overclock basically.

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Ha, how's it feel to have one of the most premium builds on the planet right now and still have dual ps2 ports? Respect the effort you put into OC'ing this, what did you get on your old delid?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Honestly in it wasn't that much better, this chip runs slightly cooler and i can get .1-.2ghz more. Maxing out before I was about to hit 4.9 I can run benchmarks at 5-5.1 now. Everyday use its pretty much the same, I was at 4.4@ 1.112 v prior and this one is 4.5@1.125. The chip in the build is just better silicon and runs way more stable no matter what I throw at it.

i find it very (lets be kind) pointless and not smart to spend this much money on a PC ;) Could have bought a a Toyota that would last 20 years. Or couldve put this money towards retirement and savings.

Actually if you read around some of the 3600 16-16-16-36 kits will still OC the best. If I were to do it again i would troll some of the other forums and pick up a kit from a proven OC'er and use those even if you pay a little premium you know they will be good.

That will be with 2x1080ti Rampage VI Extreme and 7980xe and all water cooled etc. Prob have the ram that is in this build I am going to use the 64 gb ram in my personal rig.
