Description

Going all out with this Gaming/Workstation build featuring full custom water loop on CPU/GPU.

CPU OC: 4.3GHz all cores @ vCore 1.3v, SoC 1.2v, VDDG 1.0v RAM OC: 3600MHz 16-16-16-36 1T @ 1.35v

*Upgrading from i7 4770k - MAXIMUS VI HERO build, first time attempting a custom water loop, did not upgrade GPU (waiting for future releases).

Prices listed is what I paid for each part.

ITS ON... Zen 2 coming through the big door. Lovely build, btw. Great work.

Nice build! How loud is the chipset fan on your x570 motherboard?

I haven’t noticed it yet honestly since the fractal design r6 has such great sound isolation.

Is there a fan curve for the chipset fan?

Don’t think so, but I really haven’t noticed it at all. Only time I’ve heard it was with the case open on startup when it spoils up for just a second.

So fresh and so clean! Looks great.

Here's my 3900X box, admittedly a bit less visually striking: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/hNhypg

Is the memory stable at 3600 C16? These are Samsung B-die I presume?

Little disappointing to see that blowing all that money on a custom loop still only results in 4.3GHz. At least it will be quiet I guess.

Have to wait for a more matured bios and I still have overhead with thermals and such, just not enough time to tinker with it all yet. Plus this is great value proposition for my professional workloads compared to Intel HEDT or Threadripper. It’s not all about comparing apples to apples with frequency, really depends on what you’re using it for. You have to consider IPC improvements, and for purely gaming, I would say go for the 9900k or 3600/3700x for sure depending on budget.

I literally just mean the 100MHz the custom loop got your compared to air. I'm guessing Zen 2 is going to be another case of having thermal headroom but the chips being unable to go faster.

Like I said before though, bet it runs super quiet.
