DoHbOyBlAzEd's Completed Build: Buyer Backed Out

DoHbOyBlAzEd submitter 20 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

Definitely would be fine to pair with the B450 chipset. The only chipset that cripples overclocking is the A320. The higher end VRMs will be reserved for higher end X470 motherboard, and the X470 boards come with more USB 3.1 ports.

The parts we're purchased in stages so to speak, so I could technically return half of the parts. Not worth the hassle.

This was for someone closer to me, so I let it slide. **** happens.

It's been posted on a classifieds site to recoup the funds. If it doesn't sell, or people low ball me like crazy, I'll keep it as my new spare PC.

I refuse to use Intel stock cooler. Loud under load, and barely sufficient.

That is a great price. About 250 CDN

Sorry, no spare parts lol. Most of these builds as long sold.

Good point. The gouging is real.

I dont't think its even all on the retailers. Due to the demand, I bet their wholesale pricing is much higher than it once was.

Best deal I've got recently on a GPU was a GTX 980 Ti for $400 CAD. Got it about 2 weeks ago. Was new, sent back to the guy as a replacement for his older card. Completely fair considering performance is equal to a GTX 1070. But its rare to find a card for what its actually worth

DoHbOyBlAzEd submitter 20 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Well the 980 is still equal if not a touch better than the GTX 1060 6GB, and the 6GB variant is selling for $480+ (plus tax). Highway robbery.

Z370 allows for minor BCLK adjustments. Up to 102.5

Sits at 3.9-4Ghz on all cores, all the time with max boost coming in at 4.1Ghz

$340 CAD. More than it's worth imo, but GTX 1060 3GBs start at $350 plus tax right now for a single fan model. I'd say its worth $250-$280 CAD if prices weren't all over the place.

+1 for going all out.

I think I could fill all 4 slots, but would be a tight fit. Would use Low-Profile ram to make it easy. I did end up swapping to the STRIX motherboard.

I'm well aware of what it is. All modern motherboards have Network adaptors of some sort. In my case, it has LAN and Wi-Fi.

If you're going for high overclocks, definitely. If you're fine with 4.6ish GHz with a modest cooler, then don't bother delidding.

DoHbOyBlAzEd's Completed Build: Got me an 8700K

Sorry, the first temps listed under Overclocking were before delidding, while under real life loads, gaming particularly.

I wasn't sure how much light would come into the case from the fans before I mounted them. I'm waiting for NZXT to make high static pressure rgb fans to mount on the rad.

Just got an update from the one company and apparently the 370G is delayed until mid November for them.

I called a few stores across Canada and they all expect the 370G the 19th October or shortly after.

Core Temp hasn't been updated since Coffee Lake has been released. So it detects it as Kaby Lake.

Did you use paste or liquid metal when reapplying the heat spreader?

DoHbOyBlAzEd 20 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Can you run Intel Burn Test or Prime95 and list temps. I have an 8700k aswell, and as soon as I go over 1.3v, temps spike into the high 90s while stress testing. Using Kraken X62, so comparable to your H115. Under regular loads, like games or CPUZ benching, it won't spike over 75c on my end either.

I'm assuming 70c load @5ghz is gaming, not stress testing, correct?

Unfortunately I am very limited with options as the motherboard needs to be mATX

Yea I didn't think it would walk my 3930K either....I'm impressed to say the least. However...the 3930K came out in 2012. So 5ish years to get a 20-25% increase in performance.

I wouldn't expect prices to drop for a long while. Even the 7700K is nearly the same price. If you do wait, wait for the 8-core mainstream stuff.

I'd like to be dissapointed with the cooler, but imagine how hot the CPU would be on air...lol

DoHbOyBlAzEd's Completed Build: Got me an 8700K

DoHbOyBlAzEd submitter 20 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

3930K @ 4.6Ghz (Old CPU) Single: 460 Multi: 3330

8700K @ 4.8Ghz Single: 565 Multi: 4254

The difference is fairly substantial. At 5Ghz CPUZ benched single @ 599 multi @ 4450

Games like PUBG are seeing quite heavy gains, even at higher resolutions. However, we all know PUBG is an unoptimized piece of ****.

Can't really blame ya. I have a 7700 (nonK) in a SFF case, and even undervolted it's hotter than I like. If Intel would just use better TIM. I honestly think they use poor TIM to limit over clocking results and make people delid, voiding their warranty.

"...but decided to go with a smaller form factor. Typically, I stick with ATX or larger builds, but seeing as how Multi-GPU setups are becoming a thing of the past, I no longer need the space."

Update to the latest version of CPUZ and post your bench results

DoHbOyBlAzEd's Completed Build: Got me an 8700K

DoHbOyBlAzEd submitter 20 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

I don't think these temps have anything to do with the case. The temps you said are exactly what I got while stress testing @ stock. Under regular use it never really goes over the 65c mark. As soon as you start throwing voltage at these cpus, they're rediculous. Even overclocked the temps are on par with reviews.

The CPUZ score shown is the processor @ stock. I can upload a pic of CPUZ @ 4.8ghz if you'd like.
