Description

I use this machine for gaming, content creation, etc. It is my main machine, and I am very satisfied with the performance of it, and feel that everything came out balanced. The reason my RAM and CPU cooler are white is because I initially bought this case, then decided to build in an H440. However, my GPU was getting in the low to mid 90s under load, and I don't have the funds to build a full loop, hence the pricy air cooler, although I may build one in the future, and the reference design of the Sapphire card is a bonus.

Get an air duster :)

looks pretty dusty in there but nevertheless, awesome build!

Thanks. I need to buy another can of air. I've already gone through 2 cans, plus I use a duster on the outside, but it doesn't help much unfortunately.

I would get a better cooler. 80c is kinda pushing it far. I would pick up a closed loop cooler like the H100i for the time being until you can afford a open loop. But otherwise, great build! +1

84 C is under full load from Prime95 for a few hours. When gaming it barely hits 60, if ever.And Phantek's coolers are some of the better ones you can purchase, as far as air coolers go. Thanks for the comment though. Edit: and I am feeding 1.9 volts to my processor for it to even remain stable at 4.2Ghz, and it won't even reach 4.3, so that is where quite a bit of the heat is being produced.

WHY!? 1.9V is an absurd amount of power to push through any CPU! That is absolutely stupid! Did you just use an Auto OC tool?

  • 69 months ago

Ehmm not even an Auto OC tool would do that. It'll stop at around 1.250 or 1.225. I certainly hope he mistyped, because if he's really feeding the proccessor 1.9volt i wouldn't expect it even to boot.

That is on the input, not Vcore. Yes, that would fry the hell out of the machine in a second, but that is not the case.

Jesus my heart stopped for a second lol. Thanks for the clarification.

My thoughts exactly

No, I was attempting to overclock higher, and never bothered adjusting it back. 1.9V is still within the safe zone however, so that's why I was a bit negligent. I just haven't had much time lately.

You're kidding me, right?

It's not the vcore, its the input voltage.

I got to 4GHz with my 8320 on 1.25V. Anything above 1.5V is just insane.

Anything above 1.35-ish is insane for an Intel chip, especially 4670Ks with their tendency to heat up a lot. I am pretty skeptical.

That is an AMD processor however, and they have a lower thermal limit than Haswell. Intel's processors can withstand a lot of heat, and Haswell runs hot. Yes, I should lower the voltage, but it isn't detrimental to my build at the moment.

My 8320 was running at a minimum of 60 when I had the voltage a 1.5

Ah, ok that sounds good then :) I wish there was a thing where you could put temps for MAX LOAD and Average Load and Idel, just for confusion purposes like this :P

1.9v. no way

  • 69 months ago

As you can see in this guide, an input voltage of 2.1 is even safe.

lol thats vrms not cpu voltage

  • 69 months ago

You're right, it is the CPU input voltage.

Holy ****, please tell me that 1.9V is your input voltage, not your core voltage.

  • 69 months ago

Yes, it is input.

Nice build! Only thing that's kinda itching is the amount of dust, although it doesn't look like a metric shot ton, try cleaning it every so often with a can of air. Dust can be a real *** to computers. Other than that, It's looking mighty mean and hella clean

Thanks! And I've already gone through 2 cans of air. That is about 3 days of buildup. I have filters on every available fan, but I live in a VERY dusty environment. It bothers me too, but there isn't a way for me to keep all the dust out unfortunately.

Try using an adapter to fit an outflow fan above the psu.

The problem is the cracks in the case mainly. Besides, I don't have room for another fan, and would rather keep the top 200mm as intake.

Since hot air floats, it's better to have intakes on bottom.

A friend had it laying around and gave it to me for an excellent price. I feel bad, I basically stole it.

Thanks. The PS2 is the perfect height, and I had it laying around.

how is this cooler compares to the Phanteks PH-TC14PE?

which one do you recommend?
