CPU Remains below 40-45 Degrees Celsius at load. I'm intrigued with NZXT S340 Elite air flow given its tempered glass side, it still managed to gave me stable temps for my components.
Im using the LED Sync by EVGA. But it's kinda bugging so I turn off the EVGA Precision OC App for my 1070Ti and use only the EVGA Flow Control instead. Since I use MSI Afterburner for OC GPU.
Nice, I think its worth buying it. :)
grabeng build to! ninong pahingi pamasko!!haha. Good job on this awesome threadripper build! #teamred
Does the CPU bottlenecks the 1060? I'm still torn between MSI RX 480 Gaming X and GTX 1060 Gaming X card.
Thanks man! First what variant of Corsair Vengeance RAM you have? I think if you're using Vengeance LP that will not be a problem. I didn't use the Slot 1-3 since DIMM Slot on MSI 970 Mobo is in 2-4 Slots. I'm also planning to upgrade my cooler to NZXT Kraken X61 in a few months from now.
Yeah you can, that's my current setup 2 Corsair SP120 LED fans. I have a push-pull config with my 212x.
The second clip is included in the CM Hyper 212X. It fits well in the case but you may encounter slight room issues on the RAM Slots (If you fill you all ram slots) if you used Phantek Fans, imho I think Phantek fans are quite big.
Nice build! I also have the same but an AMD Version. :)
I've check the BenQ Monitor, its quite tempting but expensive, how about this? http://www.benq.com/product/monitor/VZ2250/ . Thanks for the compliment.
Thanks Sir! I'm using a Deviant LED TV but the refresh rate I'm getting with it is around 60 hz only. How to achieve the 120 hz refresh rate? Is replacing the cable enough or the TV should be replaced? R9 290X only supports HDMI 1.4 not 2.0 so will that matter too?
Thanks man! I was going for the Corsair CS750M PSU but reviews made change to SeaSonic PSU. I hear some clicking sounds while playing not sure if where it comes from.
Thanks! Yeah I can clearly see it in some cinematics of the game such as Far Cry 4. Thin line emerges in the middle of the screen during cinematics but when it comes to game play no issues found even in Ultra settings.
The SSD choice was on budget, planning to upgrade it to higher capacity and a better brand soon. I want to try the SSD experience since its been a long time since my last build and those parts were ancient now. Haha.
Price differ here in Philippines, so here's the story. Like what I've said, I was aiming for a MSI R9 390 8GB Version(which is around $390 USD) but the store cannot provide details on when they will have stock for it. Since I can't resist the itch of having my build done, they offered me MSI R9 290X 4GB OC Version (which is around $313 USD and on sale for a limited time) I didn't hesitate to purchase it and save some few bucks that I can spend for other parts. Performance wise, it consumes more power than R9 390 but hell it performs well with AAA Games. No regrets. :)
