Here is my new refurbished gaming rig which hosts old but yet quite powerfull components mixed with an Asus 1080ti Strix
This build was intended to finaly release the horse powers of my 3770k which hasn't been overclocked since just a few days ago.
As you can see for now I just went with a very mild overclock email@example.comVcore just because of the fact that it runs my actual game - the hardware killer - GR Wildlands with no issues. The load temperature while gaming is sitting at 50~55c. Stressing the CPU with prime95 hovers at ~60c so I have plenty room for more overclock in the future :)
When I first put all my parts together I encountered bad temperatures during load so I decided to delid my CPU with a razorblade. The beginning was realy hard but once one corner was lose the rest was easy going. I decided to go with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra under my IHS. Be aware that I cleaned my CPU PCB and IHS from the glue to achieve as best as possible heat transfers from die to IHS. Initially I run my CPU with firstname.lastname@example.orgVcore and I had temperatures of 85c during prime95 load. After the delid it stayed at 70c. That's a nice gain of -15c But I wanted also to lower the noise of the CPU cooler and just gave it the actual overclock of email@example.comVcore which goes up to 60c during prime95 load and I'm happy with it as it runs my games pretty well and doesn't even go to 100% load while my GPU is at above 90% load.
CPU cooling :
After lots of research I decided to go with the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B It is a pretty good cooler in my opinion and almost silent. But I decided to change the fan with a Deepcool GS120 20mm fan which just perfectly fits and closes the case touching directly to the side panel which I think better sucks the child air into the CPU and mainboard. It's slightly louder than the scythe fan but it provides more fresh air and helped to achieve above mentioned load temperatures.
I will update this Build with photos and an extended build description within a few days. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I will answer them asap ;)
