More pics of this old timer?

jk184's Completed Build: I'll give you the B

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

For what it's worth, I've had degradation on an R5 1600 with voltage of less than 1.4v. I've had the same experience on Intel processors running voltage considered to be "safe". I don't really believe in "safe voltage". Who's really done the work to determine what voltage is actually "safe". Beyond what is anecdotal. Some overclocks might be fine for gaming but unsafe for heavier workloads. And if a workload is varied like mine is, it becomes a pain to swap oc profiles all the time. It's really turned me off to overclocking for anything more than gaming.

That's where PBO becomes attractive. It will run higher voltages for lighter loads like gaming and lower voltages for more intense loads like video encoding. It sort of runs a custom overclock for the load. I'd enjoy trying another X470 motherboard to see if voltages differ by vendor. I'm certainly interested in the longevity of the MSI board and 2700X after see voltage reported at 1.519v.

+1 for Buildzoid. Best motherboard reviews there are.

I understand offset voltage. Though I fail to see how your comment is relevant. Adjusting the offset while using PBO would defeat the purpose of PBO. It's there so you don't have to mess with it. In any case, it's not an option in the bios. At least not with precision boost enabled

Thanks. And it definitely seems to be from the UV. Places where the tubing is covered are fine.

Come on Joe. Don't hold back the pictures.

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Added the power supply for you. There are lower power (cheaper) options available.

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Thanks!

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

21 No more. No less.

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

The brick is a 12V/10.5A output. For both I tried. The actual ATX power supply is 150W.

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

I could have saved you some typing had I pointed out that these parts were all acquired some time ago. I think before coffee lake was a thing. And some parts were things I had laying around.

But you are right. This could definitely be and probably should be built for a lot less.

jk184's Completed Build: I made a little computer!!!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 5 points 7 months ago

Actually, it was one of your builds a while back that made me want to do this. So, thank you!

jlspain1's Completed Build: Overwatch Build on a budget

jk184 13 Builds 3 points 7 months ago

There isn't a huge difference. People get caught up on the fact that the 2200G is an APU. It gives similar or better (in some cases) performance than the 1300X.

A real upgrade for you would be a 1600/2600. Or whatever comes next. You have options with AM4.

raceskier's Completed Build: Small Quite Home Office PC

jk184 13 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

I think those pictures demonstrate the clearance issues he had with the first cooler he tried.

mekberg's Completed Build: The Fame Monster

jk184 13 Builds 4 points 13 months ago

Came here to look at computers. Found Gaga. It's going to be a good day. +1

jk184's Completed Build: I did an upgrade!

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

The 360 is 45mm thick. The front 280 is 60mm. A 360x60mm should fit fine on the front of the case but you might run into clearance issues with it on the top.

Excuse the pun, but that's pretty cool. How are CPU temps?

WickedPigeon's Completed Build: Snow White and her 16 miners

Hey. +1 for caring enough about aesthetics to separate the quicksilver cards from the red ones.

sammys87gnxgta4's Completed Build: Plum Crazy Challenger.

jk184 13 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

Purple is nice.

Synthase's Completed Build: Humble Beginnings

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Nice build! Is it your computer or the cats?

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

I used the 3600Mhz XMP profile and increased the voltage by .10. Its at 1.45. I increased my timings then until it worked. 17-18-18-36 or something like that.

You might not be able to achieve 3600. That seems sort of rare. And the amount of time I spent to get it there probably wasn't worth the performance it got me. And I think 1.45V is safe for DDR4. But I don't know that. The 3400 XMP profile worked no problem if you haven't tried that yet.

Justlaptops_Zanda's Completed Build: Supremacy

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Looks good!

jmsmrvll's Completed Build: First Gaming PC - Father/Son Build

jk184 13 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Solid build. Enjoy!

CiarlilloM's Completed Build: RGB ASF Bro (lol, kidding)

jk184 13 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Does the upside down Thermaltake logo over the processor not drive you mad?

Zeraphil's Completed Build: "Yes we can"

jk184 13 Builds 3 points 15 months ago

I'm excited by the lack of bezels on your monitors.

DOGALD's Completed Build: "janky"

jk184 13 Builds 3 points 16 months ago

You say "janky". But I say it's pretty solid for having traded for an old fishing pole. It's good to have a computer.

That is one of the better AM3+ motherboards. If you could find a super cheap FX8350 or something like that, it would be a pretty decent upgrade. I've got a soft spot for the FX stuff.

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 2 points 16 months ago

You can position the cooler so it hangs over the VRM heatsink and you wont have clearance issues with RAM. It is what I have done. If you do it the same way you should be able to use slots 1 and 3. Unless the Gigabyte board has them moved much closer to the CPU socket, and it doesn't look like they have to me, you'll be fine.

On a side note, the B350 boards need VRM airflow if you are going to overclock. Positioning this cooler so it blows down over the VRM heatsinks is a perfect solution.

Nice work on the cable sleeving. That can be a chore.

drchoi21's Completed Build: Radeon-XV

Fantastic! Thanks!

Sensurian's Completed Build: My First PC Build

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

I'd give a clear CMOS, reseat everything and try again.

I've found that blutooth typically doesn't work in BIOS. However, a wireless mouse or keyboard with a dongle connected by USB will work in the BIOS.

facelift13's Completed Build: Red Dragon (It's cheesy but no name seemed worse)

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

At least there is a red dragon. +1

Darren3076's Completed Build: RAMPAGE VI EXTREME / CORE i9-7980xe / Phanteks Enthoo Elite

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

I kept scrolling down and the fans in your parts list just kept going. Impressive build!

TheTrippyTree's Completed Build: Literal Garbage

jk184 13 Builds 17 points 17 months ago

"I'm sure it'll be fine."

+1 anytime I see that in a build description.

drchoi21's Completed Build: Radeon-XV

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Sooooo.....would it be possible to get a pic of task manager showing all those cores and threads? Because I feel like that would be pretty satisfying.

ZaydelJmz's Completed Build: Salchichita - Mini ITX Build

I'm considering something similar for an HTPC setup. Nice little build!

kepstin's Completed Build: Ryzen “Aptiva” Build

jk184 13 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Maybe the first time I've seen "salvage" in the parts list. Good work getting everything in there. +1

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

It’s probably doable. I got some carbon fiber vinyl wrap I used on the piece of metal that covers the hard drives. When I watercool this I’m going to do the vinyl on everything.

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Thanks! I’ll get it cleaned up eventually. It’s a project.

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Sort of. Overclocking easily pushes this cooler to its limits. Especially in this case with limited airflow.

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

That is a little misleading. 71C is achieved with the side panel off, cpu fan at full speed, in a cold room and I replaced the cryorig paste with liquid metal. Around 74 or 75 the computer will shut down. Probably the VRMs get too hot. Even with the top down cooler. B350 VRM heatsinks seem a little weak. So not an overclock to be run permanently.

jk184's Completed Build: At least I tried.

jk184 submitter 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Thanks.

That green is great!

paul.lore's Completed Build: Brain

jk184 13 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Nice build. The Taichi motherboards are gorgeous. You got a solid processor for the price they are going at these days. I'm in the same boat. If you want the PCIE lanes, this really is a great choice right now. 4.4 Ghz @1.35v here on an MSI board. Should be doable for the Noctua cooler.

Also, I'm an AMD guy. So I'm super jealous of your Vega card.

I've built many computers. But never have I had the intensity and determination of shirtless guy. +1

A GeForce GT 710 I think.
