Thanks Man. It was a fun build.
Have you pulled the CPU and reseated it in the socket? Also what cooler are you using? Make sure it isn't putting too much pressure on the chip, if it's putting too much pressure, it will cause the the mobo to not recognize the CPU being installed. Just kinda throwing shots in the dark here. Do you have a Debug LED on it to tell you what's going on? If so take the code and search online and it should help you narrow down.
Thanks man. The H5 is keeping the 1600 clocked at 4.0hz and 1.34V around 48-53C in games and max temp of 63C I've seen so far. I do run the fans at Max speed all the time just because noise is not really an issue for me and it's a pretty quiet cooler even at Max speed. Overall very very pleased with the set up but it might get pulled a part for an X99 build. I will try to toss a couple more pics up
I updated the Bios to the newest one and the XMP profile clocked right up to 3200mhz and 14-14-14-34 timing. No issues at all with it.
Thanks. It is probably my favorite part of the build.
Nice looking build! I had a question about being able to do push/pull on a rad in the top, do you think it is possible or would it hang down too far? Your response would be greatly appreciated.
Also 4.6 is more than enough for me too. My room is hot enough, I don't need any more heat coming into to. LOL
I have not. I was pushing 4.8 when I had the chip under water in my custom loop but it would get over 45C with a complete custom loop so I dont want to push it much harder than 4.6 since I like to stay under 60C I know the chip can run hotter but I just prefer it to be under 60
It is massive in there but I like my stuff staying cool. My last 2 builds have been custom water cooling loops. I just decided to downsize and not invest quite as much. I am always browsing Ebay and Craiglist for deals, I hardly ever play full price for stuff. Nice score to you also. That cpu,mobo,cooler bundle is a hell of a deal!
Been thinking about getting the gigabyte x99 phoenix. Is the board actually white and orange? Some builds make the orange look for red and I'm shooting for a white and orange build this time around. Beautiful build!
