Description

This beast took since 2k17 to build, been just using the cpu graphics, had to wait ages... Cheers Crypto Miners aye

Anyway this is a bit dissapointing the AMD card is pretty hot, just australian weather, and Far Cry 3 is a **** show, which is my most played game, so if anyone has some advice/fixes hmu

I Didn't buy the razer ****, they're hand downs from my brother, who has a beast 1080 system with mostly the same parts as me when i helped him choose, took him about a year of work to save up for his system so ofcourse it was gonna take me ages without steady work.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU, Runs a little hot and i have a AIO Water Cooler so be careful if you live in QLD Australia

CPU Cooler

Good Cooler, Pretty sure its the only thing keeping my 7700k alive at 5Ghz, but be careful as my brother had the exact same cooler and the pump failed within a year

Motherboard

Great, Cheap High quality mATX Board with Wi-Fi

Storage

Good SSD. No Problems YET...

Storage

Decent Speed. not as slow as 5400rpm but its still a hard drive, got heaps of music, games bloody everything on it and still got 700g to the b's left

Video Card

Really damn hot, and loud, considering this card is clocked lower than any others on the market is a bad sign

Case

Good case, good cable managment, Even though i had to cut a hole in the HDD cage with a small grinder and ended up having to get the worst RX580 on the market because of size restrictions.....

Yeah if you didn't catch on this thing is a nightmare... But it looks cool

Power Supply

Perfect, Enough juice and 10 Year waarranty <3

Headphones

Hand down from my brother, broke within 4 months, headband just snapped, currently held together with tape...

Gigabyte, just like PowerColor, are known to have bad GPU design.

If you want good AMD graphics - get an XFX, HIS, Sapphire or MSI.

Airflow logic - when the CPU radiator is mounted at the front, the hot exhaust air goes into the GPU and that is probably the main reason it gets warm and loud. Try mounting the radiator at the top. But 76°C during the Australian summer is not bad anyway. Try undervolting the CPU, 86°C is too hot.

Cheers.

Yeah cheers for the comment, i was going to put the radiator at the top but there is not enough room, it collides with the cpu block, and i have the Cpu at 4.8ghz at 1.265v, and i had to get the Gigabyte AMD card as it was the only cooler that would fit in the case (That was in stock in my local store)

Great PC
Just a side note, amd cards have always been hot cards, so more than likely australian heat isn't much of the problem, although it is probably a contributing factor.

Haha yeah i knew they were hot but didn't think the fans would be as loud as they are, but i do have a pretty bad version of the rx580, the gigabyte cooler is pretty bad i reckon

Nice build. Heres just a few ideas on your temps- Is your CPU overclocked? 86 is pretty warm, especially with such good airflow to your radiator. 76 for your GPU isn't great, but not all that bad either considering your rad is exhausting onto it. Maybe an undervolt on the CPU, or try turning up the pump and fan speed a bit on your rad. Also could try adding a few exhaust fans to the case if you dont have any in there already.

Yeah i've got it running at 4.8Ghz with 1.265v still get quite toasty so im gonna check the Thermal paste as it's 2 years old. and yeah ive got two exhaust at the top, this case only has 4 fan mounts
