Description

Hey guys, So I finally got my PC to how I want it to be, and will not make any major changes until Nvidia Volta comes out in January. Even if it comes out in Q3 or Q4, I think I will wait until January before I get my hands on it because I don't have any money left now. The last version of this build had a 6700k and an Asus Z170-A board, the rest of the specs remianed the same. (Sorry for submitting this build again, I won't submit anything anymore this year I swear). I've always been a huge fan of AMD CPUs and with Ryzen being so good I decided to go ahead and get it. I was only able to get 3.9Ghz out of the 1800X, which I admit kinda makes me disappointed but the performance is still out of this world! It completly decimates my old 6700k which was OC'd to 4.8Ghz in every multi threaded test and in gaming they're pretty similar. I'm happy with this upgrade, and I hope that as Gigabyte updates their BIOS I will be able to get past 4GHz, but for now even 3.9 is great. You can see the CB results in the pics. When it comes to the GPUs, I'm pretty sad that they're not the latest and greatest anymore. I got the 1080 a month after release and I was super happy but then they came out with the original Titan X Pascal. I was pretty pissed but to make up for it I got the second 1080 a few months later and tried SLI for the very first time. Regardless of me being sad that they're not the latest and greatest I'm pretty happy with the performance. They max out everything I play at 4k at High to Ultra settings. As for the rest of the build, the motherboard has some issues like the RGB LEDs not working but I hope they will fix it via a BIOS update, the M.2 SSD is nice but it doesn't feel that much faster than the SATA 850 Evo, the PSU is still plenty even for 2 1080S, the case is beyond awesome and the watercooling does a good job at keeping the GPUs cool. The CPU still gets pretty hot though. Thanks for reading.

unless you updated the bios with the new agesa update that just came out, it has a +20c offset to help with fan ramping profiles. The new agesa drops that 20c offset, so take what your temps are now and subtract 20c to see what it is actually getting.

well the Ryzen master reads around 70c while HWmonitor reads around 85c

Ryzen master also was reading at 20c over. The agesa update is necessary to drop it. Do you know which item hwmonitor is getting the data from? https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/03/13/amd-ryzen-community-update

By the way, what Bios are you talking about? I have the one from the 10th of April, the latest one on the GB site

manufacturers are starting to put out the new bios right now, but not all boards yet. looking at your board, it should be that F5 bios. not the f5d. But i can say my friend saw decreases in his reported temps immediately.

it's like a carbon copy of JayzTwoCent's build, even down to the GPU tubing run

yes because his tube running ideas are the best. I didn't do pump res combos but I might later. BTW it's blue now :) http://imgur.com/a/fsbvO

I know you probably built this before Primochill Vue released, so if you were planning to change fluid in the future, I'd highly suggest Primochill Vue. ;)

I switched to a blue color scheme in the meantime. I did use the Vue for a bit but it clogged up my CPU block and left dirt inside the tubes so I went back to Pastel.

Really? You're the first reported instance of Vue clogging up blocks. Did you take proper preparations to flush out the loop before putting in Vue?

I'm not. Did you look at the posts on OCN? I did use their reboot solution for 24h.

I'm just surprised cause this is the first critical review of Vue that I've seen. Will have to second guess the fluid then.
