Don't know what the max size for the H-Frame is, but I can find out for ya
I know, but I can't find a seller for the red/black one, and the blue/white one just isn't the same.
A GT 1030? You.can do better than that, man. Have a looksee on Taobao for the card I described.
Hey, would you know where you got a red H-Frame Mini? I managed to obtain a blue one, but I really want a red/black one for my A10-7890K+R7 250 build.
P.S. The GTX 1050 Ti has a single slot low profile blower type cooler from a company in the east called ASL. Have a look!
Say, where did you pick up that green one in England? I want a green or a red one that I can spraypaint.
Actually, what are your CPU/BCLK settings?
Eh... I tried upping the BCLK in my BIOS from 100 to 110, and tried to decrease the CPU speed accordingly. HOwever, my computer refused to boot, even though the memory was only at 1666 by then What should I do instead? Set the memory multiplier to 2133, and up the BCLK until it hits 2400?
BCLK being the CPU speed? What does that mean?
Overclock what? I tried XMP only, and it didn't work. What do I change?
How did you get this 7850K running at DDR3-2400? I've had no luck with the 7890K.
I've had no luck running at DDR3-2400. How did you do it?
Did you get this build running at DDR3-2400? My A10-7890K chokes on 2400, but runs fine at 2133. I tried the A10-7870K too.
Hey! Did you get this rig running at DDR3-2400? I couldn't with an A10-7890K, 8GBs of this same kit (2x4GB) and a Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI, kept getting memory errors.
Hey! Is your APU running at DDR3-2400? I can't get my A10-7890K to tolerate it without memory errors.
I don't think I can buy it from France. Don't have anyone there...
I've got a question: Is your memory running at 2400 MHz? I'm considering buying the board you have, and I'm unsure partially because the max memory support for the board listed is 2133 MHz. I want to run 2400 MHz memory on the iGPU with Dual Graphics.
What about gaming? My 1050Ti gets to 55C with the original fan curve.
Lemme tell, it beats the 750Ti in spades. I saw LTT cutting the DVI connector off a Titan X to add a waterblock with an angle grinder, so I suppose it's possible, but it does get fairly hot. The 750Ti's TDP is 64W, but the 1050Ti's is 75W. How hot does the GPU get passively?
Looked at the thread. The R7 250 is a rebrand of the 7750, and a 4770K shares the same 95W TDP of the A10-7890K. Well, that's a relief. It'll be tight, but not impossible.
I know, but this build has been trusty since I was 15. I have an MSI 1050 TI LP and an i3-6100, but the DVI connector makes it two slot unless I cut through the connector. Besides, I don't plan on expanding this build anymore; the A10-7890K is top of the line for the FM2+ socket, and it'll bottleneck other cards with low IPCs typical of AMD processors. I wanna make it a showpiece I can put in the open.
By the way, do you know if this case accepts FlexATX PSUs? It looks to be the right form factor, and 180w is too tight without underclocking the CPU frequency of the A10-7890K.
Eh... The second reason I wanted it in red is because the aluminum sandwich of plates in the middle is black, which fits much better with my B/W components. I'm based in NJ, USA.
I was hoping to get a red version of the case for a Team Red AMD build. Know where I could get the red one?
Where can I import an H-Frame from? I want to make a Dual Graphics build with it.
I was thinking about pairing the i3-6100 with a low profile GTX 1050 Ti and a PicoPSU with M.2 storage to make the smallest build possible. Only needs three cables: Input Power, CPU Power and ATX12V.
It's really strange, I was jusr planning on using the board, CPU and memory you're using with a low profile GTX 1050Ti and a PicoPSU to make a portable gaming rig! How are the parts?
Hey! Is that Corsair memory working for you 2400MHz? My 7890K and my Vengeance Pro sticks aren't playing nice with a Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI Mini ITX board.
Thanks! Gonna upload a couple pictures of it on the stand soon.
Thanks! I had to bend the cables into place, especially the extenders for the antenna cabling.
I fought courageously, but I might need to republish the build soon.
Thanks! The difference was new to me too; Gigabyte's F2A88XN-WIFI has 2 small heatsinks: One for the chipset, and a larger heatsink set for the VRMs. This thing has 3 massive heatsinks: One for VRMs, the Northbridge and the Southbridge.
This case has no VESA mounting capabilities. Even if it did, it's quite heavy.
Pictures are up! And the C7 seems up to the task (95w TDP). Any stress tests I could use?
The memory combatibilty I'm honestly not sure about. I previously attempted to use an ASUS R7 250 2GB GDDR5 to no avail. I can tell you this: In the Graphics Adapter setting in Device Manager, it recognizes both adapters as one GPU. This pseudo-GPU has 2048 MB of memory in it. I had Minecraft load a giant world, and as soon as it hit the 1 GB mark, the speed slowed down, because while they're both clocked at 1200 MHz, DDR3 is dual pumped and GRRD5 is quad pumped, meaning they ran at 4800 and 2400 MHz, respectively. It prioritizes the memory of the GPU the display is plugged into, or the faster GPU memory pool, is my conclusion.
I might, but since this is my base streaming PC, I can't imagine I'll stumble across some embedded parts anytime soon.
I don't, since CPUID gives me erratic results. Any stress/temp utilities you would recommend?
They're up! Take a look.
The two giant 120MM fans exhaust all that air very fast. Believe me, set them to exhaust with an aftermarket cooler. The dust filters will take care of the disadvantages of negative air pressure.
Well, yes, but my reference 480 was always at 82C, even after bumping up the fan curve to a noisy 3600 RPMs. That's vertical, where it'd be pushing in new, cool air.
The aftermarket Sapphire Nitro cooler, with the fans set to exhaust, comes in nice and quiet as long as the fans are removing the hot air it generates.
It definitely does, and is very quiet. You can barely hear it inside the 202 at max speed, and it looks quite stylish on black/red motherboards. Check it out on Cyrorig's website!
No, I mean replace the reference 1080 with an aftermarket board. With the extra power phases, better circuitry/cooling onboard + the two fans in there, you can actually chase high overclocks/low heat to reduce stress on the higher quality components. (Mine are set up in exhaust format, anyway.) Of course, if you're happy with the reference board, don't let me stop you.
P.S. If you're looking for a low profile cooler, try the Cryorig C7. Neat looking cooler that's the same size as the stock cooler, but has 2 heat pipes.
I'm about to start running an RX 480 in a Node 202, like you. Lemme tell ya, get the custom coolers, return the card if you still can. That side window access for fans does wonders. My reference 480 was throttling at 82C when running Firestrike. My brother's Nitro edition of the card? 54C. It's a world of difference.
Hi! I'm planning to pick up the Node 202 and install an AMD A10-7870K and an RX480 in there. Do you think the Node would do well with a reference cooler, or should I wait for custom editions? Also, are those standard 120mm fans?
The highest OFFICIAL card. I knew that, but other said thy got the 250X in X-Fire with it, so I put in the money to experiment.
Nope. While I can tell you I thought it was a factor also, it didn't work with a DDR3 Mem. Edition of the card, but worked with both the GDDR5 and DDR3 R7 250 mem. types.
It's a tad too late for that one, mate. If I didn't have the money to spare, I'd be more budget conscious. But I do, and I was curious.
When I say that, it's for the APU alone. To be honest, the main purpose of this build, once the new Pascal GPUs roll off the production line will mainly be a Steambox, with some slight lifting power. Note that those are for part reviews, which are done by each individual part. Then I get to do a totally off-the-hook Mini-ITX Z170 build. Also, if you even bothered to read what I said above, a main reason I built this was to once and for all settle the question of Hybrid Crossfire compatibility.
Personally? I haven't had any success. You'd probably be better off with a discrete solution anyway, preferably on the H/Z97 platform with Intel.
It is, but I want the extra performance the added instruction sets and L2 cache brings. I did say that the build was experimental; I could've been more budget efficient, but I was experimenting to see if the R7 250X is unofficially compatible with Hybrid Crossfire on the APU.
What about the memory clock? Please fully answer my questions.
Please find me the driver versions you are using for your APU and GPU. I cannot clock down CPU RAM, it's set to run at 2400 MHz, but I'll try it later. What are you clock setting for your GPU? You've yet to tell me this.
What did you set your memory clock to in msi afterburner? Set the gpu core to 866MHz like the iGPU, and then the gpu memory to 600 MHz x 4 means 2400MHz. Still no dual graphics option, even after restart.
What's your memory clock? And when I use MSI Afterburner, I set the clock but they revert to their original settings when I push Apply.
