Description

I built this PC mostly for gaming and production work. The hardest part to get in this build were the rx 580 because they were either out of stock everywhere or overpriced. I'm pretty happy with this build other than the issue I have with CPU1 always hitting 100% causing micro-stutters in games. Next thing i'm to go is get some custom sleeved cables for this build!

I'm also having issues with the rgb on the TridentZ ram stick staying blue. After every restart the lighting changes back to default which is the wave effect. Well its all thanks to the unstable rgb software from G.Skill.

I can hear "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65 just by looking at your set up. Love it

I haven't been getting the numbers I wanted lately because of the micro stuttering issue i'm still getting. But from what I tested, I got 10901 in Fire Strike Extreme and 16870 in Fire Strike.

Is recording/streaming on this a problem or just a breeze? Also, how much FPS do you get (average) on games? Can you please list the game, FPS and if the settings are on low, high or moderate? Thank you!

I haven't started recording/streaming anything yet. On average, I get well above 60 fps on modern titles running high-very high settings. On GTA 5 I get just shy of 85 fps running high-very high settings. I will record some gameplay with statistics running and upload on youtube in the future.

Any reason why you didn't go with a 1080? (two cards looks better does count) also is the bottom card getting hot? i know when i had a 980ti and a 970 the 970 would get noticeably hotter than the top card cause of the small airflow room it had.

I wanted to go with AMD because of my freesync monitor and also tried to keep it AMD related. Actually the bottom card is a lot cooler than the top card. because the top card is sucking in the heat generated from the bottom card.

44c cpu temp under load and 72c gpu temps does not sound like it runs hot. I think you are thinking of the FX series of cpu's

The cpu temps are great I agree but the gpu temps are pretty high. I was more just joking because AMD is notorious for all of their stuff being hot

The build doesn't get hot at all. I'm even surprised.

What are your temps? For each card? And are they overclocked? :)

Both of the cards are on stock clocks which are 1360 core clock with 2000 memory clock. I have had them both oc running 1500mhz core clock with 2250 memory clock stable but the card runs too hot hitting above 80°C. Right now on base clocks I have around 45°C idle on the top card and 32-35°C idle on bottom card. While gaming, the top card hits a high of about 73-78°C and the bottom card stays in the mid 60's.

THANK YOU. Most people just go "32-78". Haha! Really appreciate the in depth reply. What about your cpu? Are you running stock fan curve?

No problem! I have just about everything stock on this build right now. I did have my cpu run at 3.9 Ghz but it wasn't as stable as I liked. I've been pretty lazy trying to get it the way I want so I'm probably going to ask someone to do it for me. Haha. Moreover on the fans, my h100i is running stock fan curves but I have my case fans running at full speed.
