Description

This was a rebuild of a previous computer; a few months back my R9 380 died, and I found a killer deal on a 1080ti... then after my wife fell in love with Beat Saber, I needed to replace my old FX-9590 and AM3 motherboard... and thus my RAM as well. This is the final product.

Any reason you didnt buy an 8350 and OC it which would have saved you about £50 ($70)?

Seeing as the FX chips already run hot, I figured it'd be better to just run the 9590 status quo. The whole comp stays ice cold, so I'm happy.

youll get better speeds (somewhat) from having your video card in the first pci express slot, your manual should tell you that as well when using only one video card.

Harvested from the Gigabyte website

2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1, PCIEX16_2)

  • For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16_1 slot; if you are installing two PCI Express graphics cards, it is recommended that you install them in the PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 slots.

Thanks for that heads up, I may just do that tonight. Again, since running cool for AMD was my plan, I just added some separation of hot elements in the case. But it's doing so well anyway, that doesn;t seem to be cause for concern.

Yeah, everyone has this stigma for amd running hot, but with anything above a stock cooler and decent airflow in the case, they tend to run decent temps

How did that cooler hold up? I am dead scared to get into watercooling, dont want a leak to ruin my whole build.

My FX-9590 runs at a slight overclock, 4.9gHz, it's on 24 hours a day as a media server, gaming on it I've never seen it go over 55C. It's the ****. Keep it dust free, you've got nothing to worry about. Be forewarned though, it is ******* enormous. Have a case up to the job.

Do you have the mesh top with a 200mm fan? Do you know how much space there is left for a top fan while using the NH-D15? I am thinking of building such setup myself but I need to know this first, I really want to have the top fan.

Oh dude, I wish I'd seen this message so long ago.

The D15 DOES NOT leave room for a 200mm top fan. It's... Very sad for me.

Haven't looked. Should probably do that.
