Description

The set up is mainly using for 3D render, 3D CAD and some gaming. My previous build was Intel 6900k which is half the speed of 1950x. I overclock the 1950x to 4.0 GHz on all cores. At first I used the Thermaltake 360 AIO and the problem with AIO cooler is that it will throttle up very quickly, less than a minute of rendering work and the temp will reach 80 C. So, I switch to EK custom loop, a 360mm rad and a 240mm rad. The result is very satisfy. The temperature drop more than 10C from AIO, the overclock voltage is also lowered (From 1.36v to 1.33v)

But there's still problem with the Corsair SP120 fans that come with the case. It's 1500 rpm won't keep water cool for long time. So, I switch them out and replace with ML120 2400 rpm fans. They're noisier but the CPU temp never reach 74 C when rendering 3D images.

The problem with the 570x case is, it's too short for front radiator + reservoir pump combo. The MSI SEA HAWK is 30cm long and it crashes with the reservoir. I've to put it horizontally, it works fine but it's hard to bleed the air. I've to flip the case to fill the water and bleeding the air. I can put shorter reservoir and put it up right, but it's hard to fill the loop.

Overall, they work perfectly for my works.

I actually like that you used black tubing instead of clear. Gives it this heavy duty industrial look. Which given the 16C/32T monster you have in it I think is fitting.

+1

Bravo. I salute you.

32 threads munching on data at 4.0 GHz and a 1080ti crammed into that case with custom cooling is awesome.

Thumbs up.

Oh wow, is that 36C under load for the GPU accurate?

I think I need new pants.

No thats water temp inside the loop.

No that says 32. On the left where you can put in frequencies and temps they put 36 under load for GPU.

Ah you are correct, my mistake.

Both numbers are ridiculously low, honestly haha.

The water temp is right where I’d expect it to be. One of my builds was an i7-3770k @5ghz and 2 r9 290s all watercooled using a 360 1 inch rad and a Giant 240mm phobia rad . My water temp under full load sat around 29c with ambient temps around 20c.

But I agree on the gpu temp. 36c under loadnis crazy load. Ma

Nice looks. I would feel bad blocking all the PCIe slots.

GOOD JOB!

Just keep the temps lower than 70°C and you will be fine for the next 10 years.

Nice build here.. Love it. But can u elaborate more about 570x case front radiator + reservoir pump? What is maximum gpu length to fit reservoir vertically? i want to buy the case and pair it with msi 1080ti (dont know yet which model), but now im afraid the 1080ti will crashes like yours.. thanks

I like the build, very colourful. On the fans, I'm not a fan of Corsair fans. I have switched them out with Noctua NF-F12 industrial units. Yes, the colour is awful but they move a lot of air, more so if you can tolerate the noise at full power.

Hi, Did check the score of cinebench ?

Did you have any issues with the Power Supply? I'm putting together a 2950X build and considering the same one. I had my eye on an EVGA model but it's just gone out of stock :(

Thanks Rob
