First to the Egg
Well, I tried to warn people. What I said wasn't anything new, and it still holds true.
Thanks for the info! I wanted to compare this to my Vega FE. Your card is running cooler but also at a lower clockspeed. I've had mine run at 1525Mhz at 3100RPM with some undervolting involved. Also at 1600Mhz at 3400RPM. The performance jump between that 100~mhz is pretty sizable. Maybe give that a shot, but it does get noisy.
Yeah that sounds about right. I leave my Vega FE at 1525Mhz with a 3100RPM fan speed, and get about 80-85C. Thanks for the info!
I have the same monitor, but a Vega FE. Good choice.
What kind of RPMs is your Vegas cooler running at? Stock 2400?
What is the fan RPMs that your Vega has to pull those kind of temps/clock speeds?
If you uncap your FPS, what are the numbers on your Vega 64? Core Clock Rate, Memory Clock Rate, Temperature, and Fan Speed are the main ones I want to know about. I have a Vega FE and I'm considering swapping to this case both for thermal and appearance reasons.
If it's not too much of a bother, can you run a stress test on the Vega 64 and tell me what the numbers look like? It would be much appreciated. Cheers.
Unsure if this was intentional or not, but your front two fans are pushing air out of the case instead of pulling it in.
Wonderful, this is what I wanted to hear.
I run an AMD GPU, so the fact that this lacks G-Sync is not a downside. It has Freesync, which is a plus to me :)
Its just my tastes, but I think this is the best looking ultrawide on the market. I'm a sucker for clean black boring lines. My local microcenter sometimes sells this for $500 and I'm waiting for my birthday and that deal before I pounce on it. I love my 144hz 1080p panel, but I need some more screen real estate.
Can I ask for some additional photos of it? There are no video reviews of this thing up close, just desk shots are all I could find.
Ooo yes, an ED7. How is it? I hear people can OC it to 115~hz. Have you attempted?
I'm hoping to pick one up eventually.
The two front fans in the R5 are my only intake source. The bottom of the two is blocked by my hard drives, and supplies little to no air anywhere else in my case. I'd like to hide the HDDs in the back of the Define S and have 3x 140mm fans blowing in air that's not blocked to the same level.
Yeah I saw, however I'm not really into the ATX C line. It's taller than it is wide, and that irks me for some reason. Also, the astethic of my room is pretty flat and black and the appearance of the R5/S matches perfectly.
As someone who once had SLI 760s, I'd recommend spending a bit more and getting an aftermarket GTX 970 or R9 290/390. That's what I got to replace my 760s and the performance bump, and more important its consistency, were quite noticeable.
How do 2 1080tis in SLI handle 3440x1440? Do you notice significant performance bumps?
Awesome build dude, looks really nice.
How are those Vega 64s handling XFire in most titles?
The Titan is still a GTX 970ish level GPU. Should be great!+1
Bring the GPU up to the top slot. You aren't helping it's airflow by putting it so close to the top of the PSU shroud.
A+ for that cable management, that's some insane work right there. +1
get a pencil and or other stick and use it to prop up the end of the gpu. Or take some fishing line and wrap it around the corner of the GPU, then tie it to the top
Lovin the 690!
I have one in my work machine, mainly for the lols
I got a chance to play around with this monitor and my Vega 64 at a LAN I went to, it's such a killer combo. I had to sit a little too close to it, but using a 32:9 monitor is so damn cool.
Especially when it's 144hz and HDR.
BF1 looked outstanding.
I'm curious as to what 2 GTX 570s run well.
Iirc, it was just a temporary stand as he was getting a new desk that hadn't arrived yet. Don't worry, he doesn't game on that lol
Damn, I can't imagine gaming on a 1.25GB GPU in 2015+. I'm assuming you mainly played one game for years or older games in general?
..that's what I was saying.
There is absolutely no way that CPU is not bottlenecking the crap out of the GPU. I've seen a GTX 960 and GTX 1070 get the same FPS on older Phenom CPUs.
An interesting machine for sure. +1 for uniqueness!
Most X370 motherboards are stable. It's just those that have unstable boards are more vocal about it.
Don't fret and buy what you need for a price you accept.
They're wonderful! Wish they had a little more low end though.
Ebay. Dell R710. Buy a rack too. Start a homelab.
Best Performance/$ you can get.
If my memory serves me correctly, doesn't the Vega Frontier Edition smack the Titan XP/1080 ti in Deep Learning applications?
Having 16GB of HBM2 as well as being able to use your system RAM on top of that through HBCC would be much more advantageous in comparison to 11GB on a 1080 ti.
I know one thing for sure. AMDs open source Linux drivers are miles ahead of Nvidias proprietary Linux drivers.
Awesome build, fellow RX Vega 64 owner :) +1
Did you overpower the GPU and raise the mem speed? You should do that. I find my Vega runs better that way. I raised the fan speed on it to 2900RPM as well
I study Computer Science
My friend, this is an incredibly unique build. +1
Yup, I have a 3t! Thank you! :3
I can actually reach the lock with a pencil in between the middle fan and GPU. After that I just pull the GPU out. I've swapped multiple GPUs through this configuration before, haven't gotten one yet where that didn't work.
And thank you! :)
Thank you! :)
I can't see the power supply. Absolutely fantastic case mod. +1!
This would be slightly better imo. Not sure how well PUBG handles dual cores, but I imagine not that well.

I LOVE IT
It's an awesome CPU. Has served me well since day 1.
i7 5820k. 4Ghz since May 2015
The Xeon E5 2670 is about $90 on eBay. If you sold your 4820k it'd cover the costs.
I'd do it even if I didn't need it, since that's almost a doubling of processing power for fairly cheap.
Weird combo of a quad core and 64GB of RAM.
Ever consider getting a Xeon E5 2670 for some 8 core 16 thread action?
I wanna see more pics of your entire setup. Setups under a loft bed are badass af
Usually dying PSUs take 1-2 things with it. Haven't heard of a PSU death that took everything in the system it was connected with.
I'd sell the Mobo since you can probably get near MSRP for it. And your old PC parts as well.
I'd do R5 1600, a compatible B350 mobo that fits your case, and 16GB of RAM. That gives you some extra money for an SSD(basically required imo). Or possibly a new case as well.
I would normally downwote snarky comments like this, but it's completely true.
This is a very widely discussed topic, it doesn't warrant a new post.
Pretty sure you got it mixed up.
Most likely your PSU hit the bucket and took the GPU with it.
GPUs don't die and take a power supply down. I have never heard of that happening before in years of internet lurking.
How are the temps to fan speed to clock speed ratio in the Define R5?
