Yeah, that simulates real gaming conditions pretty close.
I have found out that in gaming, particulary some game with unoptimised engine, the computer is even more stressed than in benching.
Awesome! That's a -5°C gain!
Stock voltage can go up to 1.4V, let alone when overclocked. Thus, it is always best to manually set the voltages when clocking.
The GPU is quite cool at 52°C so the heat is definitely coming from the CPU.
Very good build nevertheless.
Good build, but you should lower the voltages and clock. For 1700X 3.9GHZ at 1.35-1.38V is optimal and the recommended temps are around 70-72° C.
What voltage do you use for the CPU?
What voltage do you use for the CPU at 3.9GHz?
Why not G.Skill Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200? G.Skill made it specifically for Ryzen. You would not have had any problems with the RAM.
48.0°C under load?! Do you live on the north pole boy?
What voltages do you use?
Temps and voltage of the CPU?
Cool build. Can you do a components review?
From the second picture it is visible that he lifted the first fan a few millimeters, so no issues with RAM clearance.
What voltages are you using for the R7?
Nice build. What is your room's ambient temp? Those CPU temps just seem too good for an ordinary Noctua NH-U12S.
You can declock/undervolt your GPU if it gets too hot. 70° C is the limit for continuous operation, just like in CPUs.
Load temps of CPU and GPU?
What are the CPU and GPU temps?
Was the stock fan of Arctic Freezer 33 really that loud or you just wanted to do an all Noctua build?
Ok build, but you need a front intake fan for better GPU temps.
Nice build, but please get a better case...
Fractal Design's Define Mini C is million times better than Corsair's Air 240.
Nice build. Delidding + Coollaboratory Liquid Pro can give an extra -5°C.
You definitely need a better PSU - something like Seasonic M12II 850 EVO. I have the Cooler Master G650M and it's average at best.
Nice work overall.
Spends $3200 for 4 radiators, 2 pumps and 7 water blocks custom loop.
CPU still reaches 70°C.
Awesome build! Congrats on everything, especially on the ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming mainboard - best AMD board currently, and maybe of all time.
You can use a better PSU though. For a powerful and overclocked system like yours 1000W is a must - like SeaSonic PRIME Platinum/Titanium.
Can't wait to see your future Threadripper + Vega 64 build. :)
Cheers and good job.
Can you post the temps of your CPU and GPU?
I'm curious how XFX performs as a viable alternative to MSI and Sapphire.
Nice build but you need a rear exhaust fan for better airflow.
It's strange, but in this site I have often seen an overclocked Core i7 + GTX 980 Ti/1080... paired with a weird ~600W Bronze PSU... It's just not advisable.
Quality PSUs make your build last longer and the whole configuration more expandable.
Don't get me wrong, I'm an AMD fan both for CPUs and GPUs.
It's just that with so much money on your disposal, you could have chosen better components, "better" meaning more stable, higher quality.
Check this one for example - Glory to the Messiah. More powerful, much higher quality and at the same time almost 2 times cheaper.
With this amount of cash i can build a space rocket.
You could have easily used Ryzen 7 1800X, ASRock X370 Taichi and Seasonic Prime 850 W Titaniumin your build.
Ok build anyway, I guess.
Nice build. One correction - the cooler of Ryzen 5 1400 is 45W Wraith Stealth.
Wraith Spire only comes with 65W CPUs like 1500x, 1600 and 1700.
Also, the maximum advisable overclock on all cores for Ryzen 5 1400 is 3.45GHz - cpu-world
Everything above that is pushing it.
7700K + GTX 1080........... paired with 300W PSU. (EPIC FACEPALM)
Good Game... Just because the build is Mini doesn't make it automatically good.
I would downvote if there was such option.
You should have bought G.Skill Flare X 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (F4-3200C14D-16GFX). It has been made specifically to have full compatibility with Ryzen. And it's G.Skill quality, so no issues either.
Nice. :) But at 80° C you're really pushing the CPU a bit too much though.
The maximum stable temperature for both Intel and AMD is 72° C.
HWMonitor - it's a program made by CPUID.
The older HWMonitor 1.30 gave more detailed info for the PSU voltages, but may not be accurate for Ryzen CPUs temps (since it's a brand new architecture), so you should use 1.31 or newer for the temps.
Notice that the true temperatures are shown in the "AMD XXX -> Temperatures -> Package", NOT in the "Motherboard -> Temperatures -> CPU".
Can you post the load temps of the CPU and GPU and the ambient temperature in your room and add them to the description? Thank you.
I'm really curious how the Wraith Spire is performing.
What are the load temps of the CPU and GPU and at what room temperature?
Can you update the description including this info?
PS: Awesome case, Phanteks Enthoo Evolv seems to be pretty popular these days.
Why not Ryzen though? They are pretty good on price/performance, much better than i7 6900K.
Also - two Crossfire MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB GAMING X will be the same as a single GTX 1080.
Both future proofed because of CPU multithreading and higly optimal GPU drivers.
Awesome cooling, but why is the exhaust flow from the GPU going into the CPU?
Won't two separate flows for CPU and GPU be better?
Also, considering the amount of overclock and heavy duty components - an 850W SeaSonic Gold/Titanium would have been nice.
That motherboard is gonna bottleneck the CPU though. You should've gone full blown ASRock Extreme9.
What is the cooler's brand?
Awesome build! Kudos for the AMD Opteron CPUs and Sound Blaster Audigy Rx sound card!
You could benefit from a nice MSI Radeon RX 470 GPU, replacing the old Nvidia.
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy Rx is an awesome soundcard!
I will definitely buy it for my next build.
Good soundcard choise! Very powerful and at the same time inexpensive.
Great soundcard choise! Both powerful and inexpensive.
In my opinion Sound Blaster Audigy Rx is much better than Sound Blaster Z/Zx and is equal to Sound Blaster ZxR.
YES! Finally someone using the awesome Arctic Freezer A32. In my opinion - the best and at the same time cheap 120mm air cooler.
Can you please measure the CPU temperature with HWMonitor? The Gigabyte mainboards have a factory defected temperature probe. Mine is almost the same - GA-F2A88XM-D3H and the socket showed a maximum of 46 C, but when i checked it with the HWMonitor it gave 72-78 C with Noctua NH-U12S. My CPU is Athlon 860K.
Awesome buld, but why Nvidia graphics?!
Wait for AMD Vega good lad.
Case - I can really recommend Fractal Design Define S ATX (no optical bay, but great cooling), Corsair 300R ATX or Fractal Design Define Mini C mATX. Ventilation and radiator/fan expansion is a breeze.
I am considering getting the Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 since it has really nice reviews, but on two of you last pictures it seems to be touching the GPU board. Is there enough space between the hoses and the GPU after installation?
Good choise on the Nepton 120XL cooler.
I fully agree that the Noctua NH-U12S is very weak for cooling - temperature delta of 48-50° C.
Had to underclock my Athlon X4 860K to avoid 80+ temps when my room temp reaches 30.0° C in the summer.
Should have gone with Cooler Master Nepton 120XL.
Smart case choise! +1
About the fans - Cooler Master JetFlo 120 truly is the best. They also come with two 3-pin low noise adapters - 1200 and 1600 RPM.
Nice GPU. I just found out that Radeon R9 380X is in circulation.
I meant CM Nepton 240M is the best cooler price/performnce/quality wise.
Yes, Swiftech H220X is 2-3 degrees better, but it costs almost twice as much.
Nepton 240M actually has better cooling performance than NH-D15.
The NH-D15 itself is huge and heavy and any single 120mm AIO liquid cooler is a better option since it will stress the mainboard less.
Good choice on most of the stuff mate. :)
I mentioned the Nepton 240M because it is the quietest liquid cooler you can find (less than 38 db at max load) and it is at the same price as NH-D15.
But NH-D15 weights 1.3 kilograms and stresses the mobo structure, while the 240M doesn't stress the mobo at all. :)
4.8 GHz is a huge clock btw. Congrats.
Even better upgrade:
Crucial MX200 1TB SSD - best consumer SSD currently. Has power loss protection, higher quality and is cheaper than Samsung and OCZ.
Gigabyte Radeon R9 390 G1 Gaming 8GB - best R9 390, the Gigabyte G1 Gaming series as a whole have the best air cooling and performance.
Cooler Master Nepton 240M 2x76.0 CFM - best 2x120mm liquid cooler.
EVGA G2 1000W (120-G2-1000-XR) - best 1000W PSU.
Front - 2 x Noctua NF-A14 FLX
Bottom - Noctua NF-S12A FLX
Top - Cooler Master Nepton 240M (liquid CPU cooler)
Rear - Noctua NF-S12A FLX with an ULN adapter
199 CFM constant intake - 120-152 CFM variable exhaust - 49 CFM constant exhaust
= from 0 to 30 positive CFM
