That 24 pin motherboard power cable is looking so damn sexy. I love what you did to it. Great work!
What are thermals like on the 1080TI? Great looking build man.
Get some more photos up there bud.
I have the same 1080. It's a beast. Nice build.
The thing is a beast. When you overclock a 1700x it performs almost the same as an 1800x. Ryzen 7 chips can't really go past 4.0GHZ, so they are all the same once overclocked really. You will probably just have better luck hitting 4.0 on an 1800X due to the more cherry picked Silicon.
Easier to run the tubes that way. Unless you can flip the logo in which case I didn't know that.
Those temps do seem a little high on the GPU. I have an Asus Strix 1080 and i never exceed 50C even with a 2066 mhz core clock dialed in at 50% fan curve.
Water should be keeping that card around 40. I wonder why its high.
Program called Rainmeter
"I have been dealing with having my storage split, too full, or not working between my two rigs. Problem solved, with 2.75 GB"
I love having 2.75 GB of space.
Nice build though bud.
You can change where windows auto downloads files. Or you can simply move your default downloads folder to whatever you drive you want, then stuff you download will go to there.
Intel fan, lol.
Good move. I'm also waiting, but being a Canadian prices are even worse.
Why such a high end cpu paired with a low end gpu?
Ketchup and mustard looking cables for retirement?
Get some cablemod extensions bro!
Should have got threadripper then. 40 mb of cache.
1950x of course.
6950X? Any reason for that choice over say a Ryzen 1800X, or an Intel 7900X?
Definitely need to get a new monitor man. 144hz is the way to go.
Good lucking build from what i can see, maybe invest in a NZXT Hue + to get dat dope RGB.
Pretty overkill cpu cooler for a cpu that can't even overclock. Spent almost as much on ram as you did cpu lol. Don't overlook your cpu for your next build.
Looks pretty good though man.
What did i just read.
Ryzen dominates when it comes to streaming and other things related to gaming in that sense. For pure gaming, IPC is still king, and you can only get the best IPC from Intel, but if you plan on doing any more than just pure gaming, Ryzen is certainly a really good choice, especially if you aren't swimming in money.
I love all straight tubed builds. I don't get the bending them. Fittings look way sexier in my mind.
you might be able to get slightly lower voltage, but 1.33 is already pretty good.
Did you go with a non overclockable chip because you thought the case wouldn't allow proper cooling while overclocked?
How long ago was that? Ryzen would have been a pretty solid choice for you assuming it was out then.
Two hybrids. **** thats sexy. Curious as to why that cpu though.
I have actually been doing some fine tuning these past few days and found that asus's auto overclocking software in the bios was messing with voltage.
I am able to get a stable 4.6 ghz at 1.360 volts that runs at 65 degrees. I dropped a whole 15 degrees!
Xmp profile is pretty easily to enable. Make sure you have the latest bios update. That might solve your ram speed issue
Ahh, must be the pump then. I was confused.
Thats really weird that the fans can't be controlled via pwm.
Why can it not be controlled by the motherboard?
I have a h105 dual rad cooler and i can control my fan speed no problem.
Saying the cooler idles loud is a bit silly, just adjust the fan curve.
Most 7700k's can pretty easily hit 4.9/5.0ghz
Temps are fairly reasonable at that voltage under full load. About 80 degrees with a 240mm AIO
What gpu was this under air?
Even going with ryzen 4 core would be better then a 6300. We all know those fx cores are garbage.
Just so no one roasts me, that is the lowest voltage i could go before I got system instability.
I run my 6700k at 4.7ghz at 1.440 volts, so your doing much better with your 7700k.
My bad man. In that case, good choice!
could have went with ryzen 6 core and get much better performance for only slightly more money
The Ryzen 1700 is the current best price to performance cpu, and with 8 cores you are also pretty future proofed.
They are well worth the money. 82 degrees with an ambient temperature of 30 degrees under full video rendering load is quite good.
I have a 240mm dual rad, and my overclock is at 4.6ghz at 82 degrees full load. So you aren't doing bad at all.
You can game on anything my friend. But the X299 Platform as a whole is just dumb.
unless you count the 7740x Then the 6700k is the 3rd best. Still an amazing performer though. Its what I use.
Should have tried harder lol. Ah well.
6700k for streaming? Why not a Ryzen 1700?
That new powerplay charging is really cool.
If you're looking for a mouse I recommend the Logitech G502 Proteus Specturm. Such a nice mouse. My daily driver for almost a year
I use the same mouse. It's pretty awesome.
Bless us with some more photos would ya. Looks awesome!
Ah, that explains your low temps.
