Description

I decided to spend cause I feel I don't have much longer to live. Plan to delid the CPU to reduce the temps but still 83c under load with a non delid intel 8700k is still fine at 100% cpu. During gaming don't see more than 58c. Going to use the Copper IHS this time around, previous build I did I kept the stock IHS and used glue. This time I will tempt fate and use no adhesive and compare the temps.

** On 11/16/2018 I did a delid of the I7 8700K. idle temps went from 38c to 30 and while gaming went from 55-58c to 42-48c, full load went from 83c to 60-65c. Using the stock IHS. Might try the custom copper IHS next, have a few on hand to try in a test system first.

I haven't seen a gpu mounted like that before. Looks cool.

Thanks, its the standard Vertical GPU mount in the default position for this case. Cooler Master C700M. $439 case MSRP. :)

Yep. Look up Cooler Master C700M. It's the new flagship case :)

may i ask why it is so expensive?

I'm not much of a Marketing person but the thing is 50lbs empty. There's some high quality metals and it also INCLUDES the GPU riser cable.

How can you mount the gpu like that on another case?

Honestly this may require some modding skills to do in another case. The kit in the C700M has a swivel base mounted on the PSU Shroud.

Worth mentioning though, the GPU temps will be higher when mounted vertically, depending on airflow of course and fan curve setup.

I decided to see how much and I mounted my GPU in the standard fashion to see and in my case temps were high by about 8c when mounted vertically compared to the traditional way. Still no where near the max and during gaming it would hit about 70c. Which is ok for a GTX-1080TI.

That's quite an interesting mount for the GPU, pretty sick build. Enjoy it as much as you can

That's a new GPU mount. Looks neat though.

Yo this build is dope as hell! You should add some more pictures I want to see more of this beauty!

I will be adding more soon after I do the delid and replace the front fans. CM skimped out with cheap fans in the front but I was planning to replace them anyway.

Great build! Did you delid the CPU? I plan to install the ML360R and delid my 8700k so if you did a delid, can you let us know the temps under load with this AIO ?

I don't plan to overclock for the time being, as I belive 4.7ghz is more than enough, I'm just delidding to keep the cpu as cool as possible.

Peace.

The current CPU is not delided yet, I plan to do that this week once I get more Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut (ran out of the stuff) and it's coming from China. I have other thermal paste (AS5) but don't want to use it cause it sucks and dries like cement. There's really nothing better than Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut between the IHS and Cooler (Cold plate) except for maybe liquid metal but I'm not that brave. I only use LM on the die and under side of the IHS not on top.

I'm not that brave also, but life is boring without the thrill of trying new things! thanks for the reply buddy. I will think of the Kryonaut and do some research as I'm used to use the ARCTIC MX-4, do you think the Kryonaut is better than the MX-4 ?

  • 15 months ago

For the most part thermal pastes vary within 1-5c given tolerance for human error and other factors like room temp, amount applied but they're all fairly close I would say. My only issue with a paste is Artic Silver 5, THAT friggen stuff dries like CEMENT and I will refuse to use it. I don't personally have experience with MX-4 but like I said I believe they are all fairly close. I've been bulding and tearing down systems since 1990 and I have yet to come across a paste worse than AS-5 , of course that is my opinion. Some like it though. Another good paste that I use is GC Extreme, it's very similar to Kryonaut.

WHERE IS YOUR THREADRIPPER

(Jk lol)

Awesome Build! You really did not hold back on the parts AT ALL. Hope it gets featured!

Like the storage selection. (Keeping it speedy with all ssds and some PCIe drives that are super fast.) Overall very top end build, a really good job.

Interesting build and definitely reminds of a mainframe server.

How did you plug in both USB 3.0 connectors for the front panel cables? I only have one header on my MOBO (Asus Maximus Hero X). I assume that each USB 3.0 connector is used for 2 out of the 4 ports on the front IO?

  • 14 months ago

I had the same issue, I bought a couple things for that, since I am using both USB 2.0 headers on the motherboard I bought NZXT USB Hub which extends trhis, then I also purchased an adapter for USB 2.0 to 3.0 to cover the 2 on the front panel. Both parts list below for you in case you're interested.

Thanks for the info. I imagine each USB 3.0 20 pin is for 2 of the 4 USB 3 ports on the front I/O. I may just only use one for the time being and get an adapter at some point later on.

  • 14 months ago

That's correct. I am only using 1 usb on the front IO at the present time and it's for a wireless headset. I didn't want to suddenly need the other 3 and realize they wouldn't so I got it at hooked up so I didn't have to endure that feeling of "not fully ready" . I guess I'm OCD about things like this.

Totally understand, I ordered a connector for 20 pin to 9 pin, and I already have a corsair commander pro which has two usb2.0 9 pin ports so I'll just wire into that. Stay posted, I am going to be putting up a pic of my rebuild in the c700M with custom water loop!

Very nice rig! I am just about to get this mobo and am super excited for it. I don't understand why my CPU is running so much hotter than yours. Not sure on your voltage and that might be the reasoning.

What voltage and OC do you have your CPU at? I am running at 1.35v 5.1 No AVX off set. I am delidded and run an EVGA CLC280. I get 72c when gaming but it doesn't go higher than 85c on a few hours of real bench. I guess it doesn't matter to some but I want it to be cooler haha

  • 14 months ago

I have AVX offset to 4, you might try that to see if it makes a difference, avx is an instruction that's very stressful for the CPU so it could cause it to run hotter in your case if you set it to 0. I see also we are not running the same cooler so maybe there are some differences there too. Appreciate the comment.

Where is the storage

  • 10 months ago

Plugged into the motherboard so it's hidden under heat-sinks and thermal pads, hence M.2 SSD from the list of parts :P

It's a feeling in my bones, nothing really told to me by a Dr or anyone of that caliber. I guess it could also be mid life jitters too :) but I remain focused to keep on living each day to the fullest hence what prompted me to build this monster.
