Bottom of the desk would be an IKEA LED strip but in the PC would be a cablemode LED strip

Yeah, I figured that out when the power supply died and I had to rebuild the whole system. However, I seriously doubt the RAM clock is affected by the placement

Go to bios, crank CPU multiplier to 38 and voltage to 1.3 volts and boot up and stress test

Well most PWM controllers can get them to 20-25% which would be 600-750RPM. You can also use noctua's voltage reducers or their 2000rpm version to be quiet but if you're going to use the voltage reducers on the 2000rpm version just get the normal NF-F12.

During gaming it's the loudest part in my PC and the tiny fans are quite loud when spinning quickly. I call it a hairdryer because I usally run all my fans at 100% right after gaming to cool things down a bit (dunno why, I feel like it) and when I do that, it sounds like a hair dryer compared to something like my RX 580 with MSI's Twin Frozr cooler.

Or maybe the user wants to play competitive games and not switch the resolution? However will invest in a 240Hz 1080P monitor

You could always learn :P Took me a Saturday afternoon and a couple YouTube videos to learn how to overclock my 4690k for the first time (though it didn't go far)

Not any issues with the block or such (remounted and reapplied thermal paste, no difference). Skylake x under FPU load (AVX-512) draws up to 400 watts when overclocked so it's no surprise it runs hot. Most reviewers get similar temps on 280 AIOs

I have a larger radiator (280mm vs 240mm) yet under FPU load it can go up to 100C on mine at just 1.3 volts T_T

7600K* i5's have always been the better value. That's not the point, the point is that of course there are better value options out there but i don't care.

Well, most reviewers found the overclocked 1200 to match the 1300x most of the time, so it didn't show any performance bump for the 20$ you'd spend. You do have a B350, so i'd suggest you try your hand at overclocking. I used the cable straps and they're... decent, Velcro ones on phanteks cases are easier to work with to be honest, but A for effort. I managed to get all my cables in though, and I'm guessing I have quite a bit more cables than you do, so give it a try to manage it like mine (find my build on my profile, there's a picture of how I did the cabling).

Nice build. However, I have some questions. Why did you choose a 1300x over the 1200? How's the Asrock board in terms of compatibility? No SSD? How's building in the s340 elite? (Have the same case so maybe if you learnt some tricks I can use)

An NVME SSD? In a sub-1000$ build? I'd suggest an m.2 SSD but not an NVME one. WD Blue 250GB M.2 one will fit in just fine

Woah. 4.3 at how many volts? I wouldn't do over 1.25 for daily use on enthusiast boards. The x99 Taichi looks best and so is the deal you got on it.

It's not the motherboard's fault. It's doing its best. My 7800x got to 4.9Ghz with the same board. Maybe you got unlucky

Hmm, if my 7800x with 6 cores shows literally no difference in any game I play from 4Ghz to 4.9Ghz I don't think I'll lose any sleep over "couple extra frames across the board". Well, the 4690K was aging and the platform was dying out (intel ARK even says "end of life"), so I wanted to enter the X299 enthusiast group and get a worthy upgrade.

7800x was only 400$ for me and I can hit 4.9Ghz, so the clock speed difference is meh. Architectural improvements (IPC wise) from Skylake to Kaby lake is also 5-7% if my memory is right. Why'd you choose x99 over x299? (Got a good deal on a motherboard?). A decent X299 board is around 350$ but a decent Z270 is around 200-250$.

Yeah, the 7700k can also deliver 1/4th the performance (Multi-Core) of a 7900x at 1/4th the price (Woah, mindblowing, right?).

Ayy Lmao (Correct). AMD has almost always focused on more cores rather than faster (higher clocked), more efficient (higher IPC) cores like intel does. Then again I'd love to see Ryzen and ThreadRipper bring competition back like the old days.

In terms of value. Performance wise it won't bottleneck any single GPU setup but a 7600k can do the same for 2/3rds the price.

One of the best value gaming pcs I've ever seen. 65C isn't too hot for a CPU, under FPU load my 7800x under an X62 hits 80-90C but normal load is more controlled at 50-60C. So don't be scared to overclock but with that cooler, I'd say keep it under 1.25volts. Most Devil's canyon chips can reach anywhere from 4.5-5Ghz, I'd say with air cooling(hyper 212 level), 4.5-4.7Ghz seems reasonable. Z97 doesn't support native NVME boot drives so check compatibility with M.2 SSDs before you invest money in them

I don't see why I personally need that many cores. But if I do then I will set my eyes on threadripper. Soooo I can get one of the price cut 7920XEs XD. Yay for competitive CPU lineups

I use DSR to run the games at 4K for now but I'll probably invest in a 4K monitor or an ROG swift

The 7700k is a meh CPU for gaming(7600k?) and the frame rate improvements you're talking about are at 1080p mostly, a 4.8Ghz 7800x would match or beat a 7700k in gaming anyway. The 7740x(7640x too) is a stupid concept since it doesn't fully utilize X299(seriously, a quad core with dual channel memory and 16 lanes on a motherboard that can support double of that). Ryzen does have more cores but the workloads I use are mostly Intel optimized and I don't see the developers of the programs I use to optimize for ryzen within the next year or so. The 5820k was one of my first options until I realized that it would cost only about 100$ more for the newer platform which I thought was worth it. I will be thinking of a monitor like an ROG swift or a decent 4k monitor buy I don't see how a monitor can "bottleneck" a card lel, Nvidia DSR? (How do you think I got the 4k benchmarks?)

If you wanted 8 cores in the first place, why not invest the extra 20-40$ in a 1600 with 6 cores to strike a decent middle ground? No SSD?

I could put it to 2180Mhz but it actually slowed down performance compared to 2101Mhz so I set it to 2101Mhz and 8808Mhz

Duplicating my settings might not be a good idea, but all I did was -Put the core voltage to +100 -Crank the power limit to the max -Crank the temp limit to max -add 10Mhz to the core clock until it crashes -After it crashes, add 50Mhz to the Memory clock until it crashes -Set a fan curve correctly to not make the card not catch on fire Done

I just managed 2.1Ghz on mine without even touching the voltage, it's possible to overclock without risking anything

I put it in mine and all I had to do was to move the RAM to the nearest 2 slots and still the cooler touches, if not pushes the case side panel out a bit.

I also live in Saudi Arabia. However, I managed to get things to ship for much less than what you mentioned. An 850 watt power supply doesn't matter if it's inefficient or unreliable.

Have you tried adjusting the fan curve? Most graphics cards have horrible stock fan curves
