It's too heavy to move without wheels. So, I went to Home Depot, got some wheels, and mounted them to the case.

AGESA 1.0.0.6 dropped last week. Have you had a chance to update the bios on your board? If so, can you get this ram to run any faster, 3200MHz, for example?

I'm building a similar setup and am just waiting to pull the trigger on the ram. I need 32GB of it, but don't wanna run less than 3200MHz. In my other Ryzen build, AGESA 1.0.0.6 allows me to run 3600MHz CL14. However,that build uses 2x8 TridentZ sticks.

You wrote that you can get your ram running at 2933MHz. Have you updated to the latest bios--the one with agesa 1.0.0.6? If so, have you tried loosening the timing to get the ram to run at 3200MHz?

Could you post the bios settings that you are running? Also, at what speed are you running that ram? With 4 sticks of ram, I can't get any of the FX processors to run the ram past 1600Mhz. On two sticks, however, I can run the ram at a higher clocks.

I run my 8350 on 1.55v to get 5.0Ghz, but that's on a custom loop, so props to you for getting your chip up and running so fast. I'm amazed. Also, what are the benchmark cpu-z scores? On the single thread bench, I get a little over 1400. On the multi-thread bench, I get around 9300.

Amazing.

I'll have to make an edit to the parts list. :-)

Super clean. Love the case. Great work!

Superbiz sells them on ebay in their "imicros" store for $14 shipped. At that price point, they are the best fans.

They move a lot of air and do it quietly. They look cool and have a soft texture on the blades.

I've used a couple dozen of them in various builds and love them. I think they are nearly as good as Noctua fans, but much cheaper.

Yeah, 73 degrees seems really hot for a 270x. Something is wrong if it's running that hot. Perhaps the heat-sink didn't get properly seated at the factory?

"The fact that your 270X is screaming at you when you game implies that it's cooler is struggling to me."

What are you talking about? The most work the card does is render a blu-ray movie in conjunction with madVR. I don't think it's ever been hotter than 50-55 degrees Celsius...and that was while running a Unigine benchmark.

Right now, the card is 37 degrees and it has been streaming YouTube and playing movies all day. Right now, the fans are spinning at 1500 rpm. That is their slowest speed. Aside from unplugging them, they simply won't spin at a lower rpm.

I'd have to set up another pc to keep count of the tabs.

Yeah, I'd have to mount the radiator on the side panel door or use the 240mm radiator in the top. On the other hand, AMD just dropped the price on the R9 Nano. :-)

I'd rather just throw a water-block on it or grab an itx r9 285 for cheap.

I keep checking for closeout sales on 270x water-blocks...will certainly pick one up for cheap eventually.

Back when AnandTech did their testing, it was the quietest case.

"Even with fans turned all the way up, the DS1 is still quieter than every other case. There's an audible difference between low and high that's unfortunately beneath the noise threshold of my sound meter; at low the case can really only be heard in a silent room in the dead of night." --http://www.anandtech.com/show/6479/nanoxia-deep-silence-1-case-review-you-asked-for-it-you-got-it/5

In the living room and while sitting back in the recliner or sofa, it's not audible. The Nanoxia DS1 case does a great job with their sound dampening material and acoustic characteristics.

Yeah, I've probably used a couple dozen of those AeroCool fans in various builds and love them, but the bearing was bad in that one, so I had to replace it.

There are two empty 5.25 bays and another pcie slot. :-)

Yeah, Franky (the cat) was eyeing all the wires in the back of the case. It's a spaghetti monster for sure...will maybe transfer everything into a Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 next year. I believe those cases will accommodate 13 drives natively. I could probably cram an additional 6 or so in the optical bays. :-)

Yeah, but the minimum the fans will spin is 1500 rpms. Only the newer 300 series and 285s have the option to turn off the fans below a certain temp...so far as I can tell.

I'll need a bigger case to do raid 6. Maybe next year. :-)

Perhaps it would be cheaper to throw some money at AMD and build a separate pc using an FX-8320e and a good capture card to record and stream the video--offloading those duties away from the gaming machine?

Sweet build! I love those FX chips. They are like old locomotives that just keep chugging down the tracks.

What sorts of temp problems are you having with the vrms? I'm just curious because I'm running the same UD5 Gigabyte mobo with my 8350. I clock it to 5.0 on 1.5 volts and the mobo temps never get over 50 celsius. I actually went with that board because it has a pretty heavy duty heat sink. Also, I run the newer UD5 R5 on a different machine (the htpc) with an 8320e, a mild overclock (4.0), and the the temps are not a problem either. I'm just saying...before you go putting water blocks on those vrms, perhaps there is a problem elsewhere?

Anyway, love the build. :-)

Yeah, man! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153198

This would be a far better psu...assuming you are willing to wait for the rebate and are also willing to support thermalfake.

That's about as cheap as is going to be found for a platinum or gold psu (no matter the wattage)...unless you ebay and win an auction.

What a fantastic rig and deal on that gorgeous Sapphire card! Also, I know you don't want to hear it, but Newegg has refurbished HX 1050 power supplies in stock right now for $100...and they match your blue color scheme too! I'm just sayin'...when my cheap ocz psu blew, it took out the mobo and gpu. It would be a shame to make a beautiful coffee cup coaster out of the Vapor-X.
