Description

My daughter needed a computer for her room, and that was enough reason for me to start my second build! I'm giving her my old system that works great. I figured for my 2nd build I would do better, so I built an overkill office / gaming rig. I'm waiting for the 980ti announcement this week before I pick up a new card for the this rig.

I took the 5820k from 3.3ghz to 4.4 ghz @1.245 v! Ran stable for 24hrs max temp 82c. Had fun again building a system, can't wait to do it in another few years.

Noctua needs to get over themselves and make those fans in different colors... all black or black and gray would be amazing, I'd have 6 of them :(

They do make some fans in black. Not sure how many of their many models are in black though.

If you dont like their standard fans you can grab "industrial" fans (expencive) in black & brown or "redux" fans (cheaper) in grey but the range is somewhat limited.

I was going to get the black Noctua's but they are 3000rpm. Wanted to keep it silent, even with the low noise adapter it would spin 2500 rpm when at max load. Plus they wanted like $10 more per fan. My case is windowless, so the brown and tan is not that big of a deal.

My older Intel 2500k only scored a 470 on CinBench, this i7 overclocked scored 1375. Won't ever use that much unless I'm rendering something. Lol like I said overkill, but u only live once!

How did you stress test? Aida64? Realbench? P95? Occt? IntelXTU?

Aida64, IntelXTU and Realbench. I was told i should not use prime on the Haswell E chips. I did the 24hr with Aida64.

Did you check your CPU package temp? Beware the "CPU package temp" as it shows more accurate temp of the average temp inside your CPU. I tried to OC 5820k to 4.4GHz, but it is going too hot.

No video card! Just ordered the G1 980 ti! So add $689 more to that. :)

Is the cooler blocking one of the PCI-e slots?

Isn't that PCI card too close to your Noctua? It must have been hard to fit it!
