How is the CPU cooler? Did you end up OC that 6600K? If so, what temps?

As I said, Fan hub. Not fan controller. I can control the fan hub through the motherboard.

It is a very good brand, owned by Asus. They make more budget style motherboards usually but their FATAL1TY series comes in many different socket types and is great. I have not ran into any problems with it. The BIOS and overclocking is very easy to use, a very reliable motherboard. I plugged all 5 fans into my NZXT Grid which I then plugged into a 3 pin fan header on my motherboard. I used a 3 pin to molex converter from the motherboard to the fan hub. I connected it to the motherboard so I could control the speed of the fans with the Asrock motherboard bios.

I ended replacing the stock fan in the rear as well, but yes.

I replaced the stock Hyper 212 EVO fan with an Aerocool 120mm Shark fan just for aesthetics. It does great cooling too. The 212 Evo comes with additional clips to use your own fan. I used an NZXT Grid which is a 10 port fan hub. I have 5 case fans in total, 3 being the Aerocool Shark 120mm fans (all exhausts) and the front 2 intake fans came with the case. Plus heatsink fan, gpu fans and psu fan. In total, I do not believe I could plug all case fans directly to the motherboard. I do not believe the Asrock FATAL1TY motherboard has enough fan ports. With the NZXT Grid I also have more room to add more fans.

Why the RAM cooler? 1600 Mhz RAM doesn't tend to get very warm

Future upgrade for an AIO or even an air cooling heatsink to up that clock rate would be smart.

Agreed. Molex is not know for being reliable under heavy load, especially in adapters. Also reorienting the fan to exhaust out the back would increase air flow and aesthetics. And yes, you're supposed to put a single dimm of ram in the second slot

I would have put a few more bucks into a better overclocking Motherboard. What did you end up overclocking that 8350 to? 2133 Mhz is a very minuscule increase in performance from 1600 Mhz, if you got the RAM for the listed price I would have just gone with 1600 and saved a bit of cash.

Agreed. Putting the money from the 8320 into a 950 and getting a 6300 instead as a CPU choice would have been a smart decision for CS.

Re-orienting the CPU does not make a huge difference which explains the same temp in every orientation. With that rear fan in-taking air it does create positive airflow in the case (more air coming in then going out) which means there is hot air floating in the case. This can affect certain parts such as motherboard chip sets and other modules on the motherboard and things like your graphics card. It is your system and completely your decision. In reality most people get an upgrade anyways before any noticeable symptoms occur anyways. Nice build though +1

Curious on your choice of the CPU. The FX-9590 for those who are not aware is an out of the box OC'd version of the FX-8350. With the Nepton 240M you could've reached 4.8Ghz easily on the FX-8350. Is the 200 Mhz worth $50+ more?

Comment reply on quantegy's Completed Build: Audio Production Build

  • 50 months ago

Very odd parts list for a music production. First off, I suggest orienting the CPU cooler to exhaust out the back of the case for a couple degrees cooler in CPU temps. Also, not sure what kind of sound production you're doing, but a GTX 770 is far from needed if you're strictly doing only music production. If you're playing some games on the side, the GPU is totally understandable, that is if you got it for free/already had it, as you listed. 32GB of ram is a ton for any production flow. I'm not saying your flow doesn't need 32GB because I have no clue what you're producing/editing/rendering. I would've suggested really making sure if that was needed before purchasing though. Also the H110, but no OC? You have an unlocked CPU as well. You have to OC that for it to be a logical buy. Also interested in which sound card you purchased as it is not listed in the parts list nor the description.

Are you running the TC12DX off passive cooling? or was that just a pic with the fans off for setup? Also put the GPU in the first expansion slot.

I see, for a few extra degrees lower in CPU temps I suggest flipping the rear fan to exhaust out the back and orient the CPU cooler to exhaust out that side rear exhaust. This will provide fresh air from the front of the case through the CPU cooler rather than less air off the pcb of the GPU.

Odd fan orientation, mind explaining?
