What orientation is your CPU fan looks like its blowing air out the top. If so I'd switch it to blow the air out the back. Rather than sucking I the hot air from the GPU into.your CPU. This could improve temps some and give you more head room
If your worried about temps.delid and add liquid metal by thermal grizzly onto the CPU die. I did it to.mine and now I never go over 50c under load and im over clocked from 4.2 to 5ghz Also since you have a 1080ti amazon is have a clearance sale on the hybrid cooler for the GPU 60$ instead of 180$ I got.mine and now my GPU temps went from 65c-70c to 48c max at 4k load
4k optimised superposition check the pics out I posted a screenshot of the results. As for CPU I was thinking of trying out the8auers direct die CPU cooler. Might look into it further hehe
I love the ML120s super quiet at 1400 to 2000rpms I keep mine around 1700 on my rads and can barely hear them even at max they aren't that loud as most ppl think. I went with these cause they are optimised for both airflow.and static preassure.meaning if I ever switch cases I have a fan that can go anywhere
check out the completed form of this build as project overkill in my completeds the rig was revamped with extras, new monitors and a hybrid wsater cooling for the gpu
@.@ but now youull have to empty the loop and redo 50% of your runs and bends to accomdate the new gpu block. but hey thats the fun of pc building haha, dope build nice setup cant wait to see the final form
48C 100% LOAD (during superposition) on hybrid cooler. and yea turened out better then i expected although with liquid metal on the gpu the temp drop was only about 3-4C over EK Ektotherm Tim. i dont believe LM does much of a difference for the gpus only works great for the cpus.
rocket so i took your advice from the video you posted and i applied liquid metal to the gpu and used nail polish on the metal beside the gpu die and all worked out great. now my idle temps are 32c and full load temps are now 48C, i also purchased on amazon the ftw3 hybrid water cooling kit for 60$ super sale from 180$ and installed it on today. new pics are added and updated to show progress
like the build looks dope. but the only thing that gets me is all this hardline and 360MM worth of rads to cool only a cpu. do you plan on adding in the gpu as well to the loop in the future. for me just feels like alot of wasted money just to cool only your cpu when you can easily do that for around 100$ for same result with a standard 240MM aio
Sweet ill try it out tonight and see what's my GPU temps are after the LM. Right now at 4k 100% I'm getting 60 to 65c at 29c ambient
Thanks was thinking about trying that but didn't know if it was a good idea
thanks yajiro yes i like the blue theme. tired of all the red and yellow and rgb everyone else has, wanted to keep it all uniform with out over doing it all i like the monitor setup this way cause its easy multitasking the top monitor is mainly for videos and movies. bottom center is for games and whatever im doing currently and left is for discord and tempo monitoring and the right is for web browsing.
as for filters the case has a built in one behind those front fans you can see it on picture 15. regardless even if i installed another filter i would have to clean that one off too daily as i have 3 cats and a dog = tons of hair everywhere theres no avoiding it. but at least i dont have to clean the insides of the case as it never gets any dust or hair build up. its micro mesh
as for the kryonaut i just put a bit larger than a pea size and used the included spatula to evenly spread it onto the ihs and the gpu die was easy enough but the stuff is really thick` so takes time to spread properly. i love this TIM i stand by it 100% best ive ever used.
as for smoking i quit awhile back. i vape now the pack on the table was my buddy's who was there with me while i was taking pics.
I would water cool the GPU but dont wanna go the kraken G12 route since I loose the ability to use my backplate on the GPU and I dont like the look of the bare pcb
ive removed the shroud on my card it is simple enough since i applied kryonaut on it instead of LM but only dropped my avg temps by 2-4c was thinking of LM on it but scared since so many metal contacts next to the die. i was thinking of going the g 12 route but the only issue with that is i wouldnt be able to continue using the back plate to my gpu.
Didn't want a 1440p 144hz monitor I wanted a 4k 75hz monitor. And wasnt dropping 2000$ on a asus 4k 144z monitor lol. I'm graphically spoiled and 4k looks way better plus I watch alot of 4k movies, TV and anime from the 4k monitor so it was a win win.
Sim was just looking at your build howq is that copper ihs working for you i was thinking of getting one. and havew you had any issues adding the liquid metal to the gpu? im kinda scared to do the gpu as well but my cpu is already done
no dust actually going into the pc since there is a dust filter behind the two front panel fans collecting the cat hair and dust (look at picture 15 for reference) and that gets cleaned off every day before i turn on my pc
I feel you I want to upgrade to gskillz trident rgb but I'm waiting for a really good deal not spending 215 on 16gb most I'd pay is like 150 to 175 waiting for microcenter sales
Nzxt cam software. It's really useful to monitor every aspect of your computer such as temps usage loads ram usage drive space also comes with a fps and temp overlay when gaming. See link for software https://www.nzxt.com/camapp
nice build so far cant wait to see how much more it progresses. as for ram i have the same ones ive had no issues with them so far and work great no need to waste more money changing them out. i just added some blue heat sinks i had lying around to improve their look.
Better safe then sorry especially when handling high priced components. id rather wear Anti ESD gloves then wear a ESD bracelet i feel those things get in the way when your constantly moving around trying to get all your parts in order plus gloves prevent your hands from leaving ugly oil smudges on your parts
power level over 9000!!! best damn cat in the world
i went with the 7700k cause it was on sale for 149.99$ at microcenter during the xmas holiday sales where the 8700k was 349.99 that 200$ savings gave me enough to get a 1080ti vs a 1080
i originally purchased 1050ti for 200$ then i returned it to micro center cause my coworker gave me two AMD HD7850 for $75 so i saved myself 125$. those lasted me about a month until i got my GTX 1080ti. The Hd7850 were only there so i could continue to Game while i saved up for my 1080ti
im actually gona take most of the old parts and make a new system out of all of them and give them to my son and start teaching how to code and program
yea it was scary at first considering it was sitting in a closet for 5 yrs gathering dust and pet hair. a ton of trial and error trying to get it game ready at first. i started dec 10th 2017 and today i finished most of it so been slowly added as i went along. im so happy with the end results. and i was thinking of doing a full red build but then i was like to many red builds and im not into RGB building to flashy for my taste
thanks i got it right around the holidays whens sales were insane
