i use this machine for gaming

HELP!! i am having micro stuttering problems. i have done everything i can possibly do to fix it, including updating bios and drivers and all of that. i even bough a different gpu i got an amd gigabyte r9 280x and the problem still there :(

Ok seriously this build it looks awesome! I have 2 questions though, Did you use Plasti-Dip to paint it? like Linus did in one of his videos recently. Second question, Isn't painting the fan blades negatively affecting the fans performance?

In response to your question about micro stuttering, I thought that was a problem more commonly resulted by SLi / Crossfire setups and not Single GPU solutions such as yours, are you sure it's micro stuttering? I dug up a few articles that I was too lazy to fully read that might help you.

I hope you iron out any of the issues you're having with this beautiful PC, Good luck brother! (or sister)

yes i have watched thousands of videos lol it is micro stutter, drops like 8 to 10 frames i got a video on my youtube page right now :( kreeper24

and yes i custom painted anything i could including mobo, and the performance of the fans still great :)

keeping my gtx 780 ti max 60 full load 23-25 idle same with my cpu :) THIS IS MY FIRST BUILD EVER i want to cry :(

Orenh 1 point 3 months ago

Have you overclocked any parts that may have caused the problem

mrsimplycrazy 1 point 56 months ago

Wow that is an amazing looking build you have there man!

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 56 months ago

thank you this is my first build ever and i wanted it great looking and all white lol i have a ocd for white color electronics, i have been building this pc right before the i7 4790k was released i believe before jun 25

Maybe Vram cooling issues?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

hmm have not thought of that.. let me look in to it, DO ANY OF YOU PC BUILDERS OR GAMER HAVE THIS ISSUE?

jshoop 1 point 56 months ago

vram cooling with the g10 is really bad, it could be the problem. it can also be the psu giving uneven power to the gpu? i just made up that last part but i do know the psu isnt great quality, and is the last think you want to skimp on

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

well i bough a new card not nvidia, i bough the gigabyte r9 280x low end card to see if it was the gpu, using the stack cooling of the gpu, and it does the same... :( now my cx 750 do you think that could be?

Sponce 1 point 56 months ago

It's worth a shot to try adding copper heatsinks to the vram. Just be sure to measure the clearance. I've never messed with a G10 so I wouldn't know if there are any height issues. Swiftech makes some good ones I'd recommend.

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

well the g10 is only an adapter to mount the corsair h55 all in one water cooling kit and it is copper

abrisso10 1 point 45 months ago

It could also be your monitor

CoyoteUglyy 1 point 56 months ago

How is that aio liquid cooler thing for the gpu. it seems that just a fan blowing air at the other components wouldnt be so good?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

i have plenty of fans for exhaust, also my gpu stays cool even on full load

Troubl156 1 Build 1 point 56 months ago

What you're looking at is the temp for the gpu alone and not the vram (i.e. the part underneath the aio liquid cooler and not the parts elsewhere). If you look at the reviews for these adapters, they tell you that the main problem with them is that they don't cool the vram; they only cool well the gpu (the part under the aio liquid cooling). The fan that is on the adapter isn't enough to cool the vram -- according to reviews. What is recommended is to buy extra copper heatsinks -- low profile -- to put on the vram to help with cooling.

Snow white, you are so gorgeous.

jstar 1 point 56 months ago

I think the front three fans were the SP120's and not AF120's. Doesn't the extra weight from the white paint cause problems though?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

yes there supost to be sp120 did i choose the wrong ones on my list? let me check

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

in response to your question,the paint no it does not cause any weigh problems

Retroman 1 point 56 months ago

Despite what he told you, it does in fact cause performance decreases when they have been painted, the way they color the fan blades is likely with a dye so adding paint is obviously going to add uneven weight across the fan blades, whether or not the resulting performance decrease will effect your system, probably not going to be the end of the world but if you're putting a heavy overclock on you would want every last bit of performance increase on cooling components not decreases by painting. If you're interested check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQIal_982fE

Linus shows a method of painting your components with Plasti-Dip, it can be easily removed if you screw up or it wears off or screws up your PC performance and you change your mind.

every day that i came from work, i kiss snow white

Yes.

fnapoli 1 Build 1 point 56 months ago

Maybe the microstuttering has to do with your monitor? or the cable you are using to connect the GPU to the monitor?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

i had tried using a regular hd tv via hdmi, that is not the problem if you look at my pc parts i am using a ims response monitor designed for high end gaming

torrin1234 1 Build 1 point 56 months ago

Crazy how different these H440 cases' internals are. Pretty great job. I don't like that you painted the fans, and you got so many. According to your list you got 18 fans! That can't be correct as that many wouldn't fit in the case.

Really cool though. Also paint the SSDs, ya bum!

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

haha i bought all those fans but i am only using 9 of them, the other ones i will paint another color according to the theme color i choose to go :)

actechy 7 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

Looks really nice, hopefully that it lasts a long time with that paint!

timboroks 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

just wondering why a watercooler on a non k cpu?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

its always good to keep it cool,

Mirrorworld 3 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

Noo! Why you no make white CPU blocks Corsair D:

Nice build by the way.

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

hehe thank you :) and i wish they made them water blocks white

TAZTG 1 Build 1 point 56 months ago

Love the build, make sure to keep those nasty dust bunnies off the beautiful white.

bbakker09 1 Build 1 point 56 months ago

Although your PSU is a pretty good one, I would check the voltages and look for any big differences. If you do a little research on faulty PSU's they can cause problems with your CPU or GPU which could be causing the stuttering.

MrChrumb 1 point 56 months ago

Crazy, good looking build.

How about pulling all the covers off, and use a ~12" box fan (or whatever) to move air over everything... is the source of the stuttering heat?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

no the heat is not the problem, i did many test with everything out and having a fan real big house fan blowing in to the mobo pushing cold air from my ac vent lol.. super cold. and the stutter still there, so i know that is not the problem :) :....( may be i got the wrong memory ram?

MrChrumb 1 point 56 months ago

... bummer. Heat would be too easiest.

I'd next try a process of elimination. Unplug/remove anything you can... (try taking your memory down to single channel). If the problem still existing then you're down to part swapping, which is a pain in the butt (and/or expensive).

If you get all the way down to the motherboard... you could pull it and double check the standoffs are all in the right places and you don't have an extra making intermittent grounding against something. Or something else like that... equally improbable.

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

thank you! :) i have been thinking and i am getting vrm heat sinks :) please visit my channel on youtube kreeper24 no need to subscribe or nothing just watch my newest video

Sure!I shall check out your channel!

BaSkA 1 point 56 months ago

Holy ****, white looks awesome! I'm planning on doing the same to my Mark 1.

JustAnotherGamer 1 point 55 months ago

How good are the headphones? I see people on YouTube giving them 11/10.

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

just like any other headphone bro, great quality great sound,

Drift_91 1 point 55 months ago

Although the micro-stutter is more likely caused by what other people said about your VRMs overheating, you could try turning off hyper-threading. I have a crappy OEM HP build with an i7-2600s and some cheapo $15 motherboard. Turning off hyper-threading made a huge difference for me in some games.

Sh4dowH4wk14 1 point 51 months ago

I would spend $2902.54 just to look at this computer. +1

How did you get the tubing a custom color

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

i paint it bruh krilon paint from any hardware store

IMSOLOST420 1 point 36 months ago

BRUH!!! BRAVO MY MAN!! THIS BUILD LOOKS AMAZING. I HAVE A QUESTION THO. HOW ARE U ABLE TO HOOK UP SO MANY FANS TO THIS SYSTEM? I ASSUME THE YOU HAVE TO USE SOME SORT OF SPLITTER POSSIBLY. ALSO, WHAT TYPE OF PAINT DID U USE TO PAINT THE MOBO, THE FANS AND THE TUBING ON THE AIO? THIS BUILD IS AWESOME. ITS ALMOST EXACTLY HOW MUCH MY BUILD I TOTALED OUT TO BE. GREAT JOB MAN AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

PLEASE REPLY BACK TO ME AS SOON AS U CAN. I JUST WANT TO LEARN.

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

well this motherboard has 7fan connectors, not many motherboards do.

the paint that i use you can buy it at walmart its called Krilon Flat White :)

IMSOLOST420 2 points 36 months ago

Also, How long did all the painting take you and how long did it all take to dry?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

man it was like 2 weeks process.

IMSOLOST420 1 point 36 months ago

Yeah, that is very true. I've been looking at the specs. on my MOBO very carefully to ensure that it can handle the amount of fans that I want to include on my pc. And making sure the pin number is correct. I plan on just getting a Fan Splitter so I can still connect them to the motherboard. But, I have to be careful to make sure the voltage from the fans are not too much for the header. Thanks for that info.

IMSOLOST420 1 point 36 months ago

Oh okay, thanks for that. I love the custom paint job. How did make sure you didnt get paint on anything u didnt want to get painted like did tape of some parts or something, How long did it take to paint everything and how long did it take to dry?

IMSOLOST420 1 point 36 months ago

WOW, U did a great job on the painting man. So u painted everything I see!!! WOW, Good stuff. Question...

Did u remove the front the plate on the motherboard when u painted it or did u paint it all together?

Did u remove the blades from the fans to paint them ?

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

yes everything got removed :) and yes blades everything

Why get a liquid cpu cooler with a non k chip. its a waste of money

kreeper24 submitter 2 Builds 3 points 56 months ago

i am a gamer, and regardless my cpu i better keep it cold

Mikeaprb@aol.com 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Are you doing any overclocking on the gpu?
