Just got it up and running. Using a Meshify S2 case with Corsair ML pro fans all around. My 9900k doesn't seem to be so lucky though, I need 1.3v for 4.9 on all cores, or 1.36v for 5ghz...
What settings have you got for your 5.2, this thing gets quite toasty especially under AVX loads, like hits 90s with ease in P95 latest version. Non AVX loads at 5ghz bring it to 68-72C which is a lot more acceptable.
Looks great man, I am in the process of building a very similar rig (9900k, 2080ti Strix ect.) but was thinking about pulling the plug on a custom loop as i9s tend to run hot. How are the temps on yours at 5.2 with a push/pull AIO?
Currently have a Kraken X52 sat in a box with 4 noctua fans on it, wonder if it will be enough to run at 5ghz while I save up for a full glass based hardline loop. Thanks!
30-40% perf difference is worth it to most people mate, just the cost is hard to swallow. Also it's not an extra 300, more like an extra 1000 lol, a 1080ti used is £600 right now (asus strix) and new they were 650-750 before the mining craze. So the 2080ti at £1500 is almost £1k above the price.
Still, if i had the cash I'd buy an RTX too.
Well I had a 1700 and my experience was the same as my buddy who has a 1800X.
Thankfully I now have a 5.1ghz 8700k so I don't have to worry about low fps anymore :D
It is just a better binned processor, of the same family. If you get lucky you can have a 1700 that's better than most 1800X chips out there. It will not perform better at the same clocks because it is THE SAME processor. Watch a few videos :)
Thank you matey, I appreciate it.
Unfortunately I don't own this PC anymore but yes that would of added to the white theme. The fluid was actually later changed to blood red to suit the cables more. Was nice to own and use for a while but the difference between a good AIO setup and custom cooling is not that big anymore, so sort of hard to justify it's cost...
Thank you and yes indeed :D
For gaming ? No. 8700k wipes the floor with it, but for multi tasking and CPU intensive tasks it's a monster.
I wouldn't put God Pc and a gtx 1060 in the same sentence but yeah.. A bit less RGB craze and less ram and you could have a 1080 :)
Ahh okay that makes sense, thank you for getting back to me.
Thank you sir, and well the picture was outside and it wasn't too warm that day so hence the low water temp display, otherwise water temp hovers around 25-30 in the house :)
Looks good however those panel cutouts are really not that appealing... There are much better services that offer this by the way: https://www.gosumodz.com/EVOLV-CNC-Service
Thank you! :)
Thanks man, means a lot! I tried to keep the bends simple and use the least amount of angled fittings as possible (helps with flow as well).
Thank you bud
No. Noctua NH-D15 on the other hand, yes.
As for you CPU temps, you just need to delid it mate, no cooler will handle it well without a delid. Many people offer that service now, and it's a really fast process. Temps drop anywhere from 11 to 25C!
Looks awesome man, how are temps now? Also did you make the panels yourself or purchase?
Corsair ML140, any Industrial PPC Noctua in that range, Noiseblocker Eloops, EK vardar EVO ect... list goes on.
Are those custom cables Paracord? If so where did you order them from? I am struggling to find a set in the UK :(
I've never heard of the brand, and I want good warranty with my AIOs (even though I don't buy AIOs anymore and have gone to full custom loops). Corsair or NZXT is all I would touch if it was me, but I understand as you said that budget was a limit here. Great build never the less bud!
It performs the same in "multi tasking situations". In Gaming the 8700k is quite a bit ahead, as good as Ryzen is the single core performance is not that great.
I have both an R5 1600 (which my gf uses) and my 8700k system so I can see the difference first hand (both with 1080ti).
Very nice build man, however you do realise that an 8600/8700k will outperform your CPU by a long margin and costs a loooot less right?
Just saying, since you said you only play PUBG :)
I would have gone for another AIO, even if it means painting it white, but other than that I like how clean this is :)
It uses less CPU as the higher resolutions push the graphics card more, meaning you get less fps and the bottleneck becomes the GPU at that point. That said, you could also argue that it masks your CPU's performance, hence why all good CPU tests are done on 1080p and lower (720p is common too) to see what the CPU can really do when GPU power is "unlimited".
I am using a R5 1600 @ 3.9ghz with a 1080ti @2068mhz on 2560x1440p 165hz Gsync and have no problems what so ever, I know a 8700k will perform better but at 2.5x the price? I might try it though.
Great cheap build with quality parts mate, also +1 for that Meshify C, best case ever imo (R6 coming close second).
Looks good man, but that LED strip needs sorting, the way it sags..
Other than that +1 :)
This is amazing and damn those temps! I need an open air case in my life...
Great component choice as well as games choice o/ fly safe
1080p 144hz is fine for this build, honestly not all games can even hit that framerate on Ultra at 1080p, even with a 1080ti. I know that is mainly down to optimisation but still.
I use the same GPU and CPU on 1440p 165hz (PG279Q) so I know the struggle :(
Ah my bad, did not read that. Makes sense, and yes 2k will be better for editing for sure.
It's a lovely computer though enjoy it :)
Meshify C is an airflow and performance orientated case, the Define S and R5 are not, so it won't be as quiet as them but it is still very good on noise. I have one with noctuas as well, running at 1000 rpm fixed speed. It's only a slight hum :)
The Kraken will not get much better temps, in fact a good air cooler is on par if not better than most AIOs when set up correctly with a good fan profile and case aiflow.
All he needs to do is a delid, 84-86C is common on 8700k that runs at 5ghz, when not delidded.
Sorry to break your spirit but the TT floe riing is not better than NH D15, in fact it is one of the lower end 240mm AIOs when it comes to performance (thankfully it looks good so it's price is higher). Only the 280mm AIOs edge out the D15 and not by much, it also depends on case airflow, what fans are used ect...
Very nice man, I love how meaty that cooler looks in this case. Such a shame that to make the cooler look good you have to pretty much spend double the money for it :(
How are the temps on CPU and GPU?
Just came across this build, very nice man! My only gripe is that monitor, 1280x1024! Damn! Your setup is overkill af for that resolution, you can get good cheap 1080p monitors now, and I would recommend a freesync one with over 60hz :)
Great name! Really matches the terrible temps that case provides :D
m.2 ssd is awesome, you will love it!
I am getting a 960 Evo Myself, sadly only the 500GB but in due time I will upgrade to higher as I need it. I wish SSD prices in general come down tbh, a Samsung 850 Evo 1TB is still silly money, so HDD is the way to go for mass storage (4TB +).
Custom loop is awesome, just make sure you have a good amount of cash saved up as buying fittings adds up real quick! :D
Why are you all mad about the parts he chose? what's wrong with them? Pretty solid build if you ask me, and not as expensive as some of the **** I see on here. Everything is functional :)
Looks great bud, but I have two questions. 1 Why that cooler? You can do a lot better in that department (unless temp are fine for you then don't worry).
And 2. Why no SSD? 500GB SSDs are cheap now and will make your PC a ton faster in boot, loading and data transferring times.
Other than that, great AMD build :)
Because once both CPU and GPU are overclocked, TDP becomes more like 650. And you should never get "just enough" watts, always overkill :)
2000W PSU? You couldn't have wasted more money even if you tried xD
Also, ryzen 1700 performs and OC's the same as 1800X, again saving you a massive fortune. But I guess this build is far from cost effective so nvm :)
Looks nice but I must ask, why a poseidon edition 980? I know it has fans and can still be used as air cooled card, but it is mainly aimed at people who would want to attach it to a customer water cooled loop.
Nice build though.
