Description

PSU is overkill, but has really helped me overclock on this rig.

CPU - 4.7ghz vcore 1.38 cpu runs at 78C using OCCT CPU line test full load. GPU - +140mhz offset core clock and + 300mhz offset memory clock

For more realistic numbers, cpu usually hit 60 MAX during heavy cpu usage games (Crysis 2, Metro 2033 etc), haven't seen the GPU go above 60 degree yet...

Will be pushing the cpu higher.. more to come! stay tuned!

Edit1: Hi All, running on 5Ghz now. vcore is set to 1.456 with PLL enabled, going to burn in it some more to see if it's stable. Highest time I got is 90C on OCCT CPU line full load. Running games is ~ 70-72C... not too bad at all.

GTX 690 with one monitor...twitch

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 3 points 57 months ago

Perfect for maxing out on 1080p

IamApropos 3 Builds 7 points 57 months ago

1080p 120Hz ;)

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 6 points 57 months ago

Yes, smooth as a baby's bottom

Idzan 3 points 57 months ago

Didn't realize your monitor is on 120Hz :P

How hard was installing the water cooling? And how many builds did you do before this?

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 5 points 57 months ago

I've done 5 builds before this without water cooling... it took awhile to install, but that's because I was making sure everything was perfect, I didn't want any leaks on the 690 :|

JForce522 2 Builds 6 points 57 months ago

With a build this high-end, i'm surprised you did not go for LGA 2011. Enjoy this amazing computer!

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

I'll agree with ya there... cost increases though

j5haw54 1 Build 5 points 57 months ago

i7, 16 gigs, over 3 TB, gtx 690, custom water cooling... uhhh pc orgasm

MrCanadianAviator 1 Build 3 points 57 months ago

How long did it take you to put it all together.

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 2 points 57 months ago

it took awhile to install, but that's because I was making sure everything was perfect, I didn't want any leaks on the 690 :| - (8 hours including un packing and cleaning up)

Beautiful job!!

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

Thanks!

RobertTechTips 1 Build 2 points 57 months ago

CRAZY nice build but what are you gonna do with it other then game?

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 3 points 57 months ago

Other than Game? Nothing excepting Benchmarking :)

Dead-Xilence 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Is this for sale?

gtmsnba13 1 point 54 months ago

Great job on the water cooling and cable management. And holy water that's a massive radiator.

GPU_Guru 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

May I say... Props to you sir, very impressive. Now just empty the water and replace with liquid nitrogen and continue to OC.

Mshenay 1 Build 1 point 53 months ago

Nice nice, I'm looking at doing a $2500 triple monitor win 7 water cooling my self in the future... good to see what's out there now. Any tips though on good companies to go with for water cooling?

Fastmaster7 -2 points 57 months ago

Great job on the watercooling but kits are usually cheaper

mousseng 1 Build -1 points 57 months ago

And also not nearly as effective or attractive. Keep in mind this loop is cooling both the CPU and video card - more than you can say about an H100.

Fastmaster7 -1 points 57 months ago

Lol, the H100 is a closed loop. Watercooling "kits" are custom, expandable solutions, which is exactly what cyclogenesis has

mousseng 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

Fair enough. I generally see people use the term 'kits' in reference to the closed-loop coolers companies like Corsair and Asetek provide. I'm not too familiar with watercooling, so forgive me.

anderl12 -4 points 57 months ago

This guy is completely crazy and you have no idea how to OC. Never go above 1,40 in voltage and... 90ºC? Are you crazy, dude?

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

I have nothing to say to this you clearly aren't aware I am just trying to see how high I can go, not every day use. But since I'm a nice guy I'll point you in the right direction: http://hwbot.org/benchmark/cpu_frequency/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2493#start=0#interval=20

cyclogenisis submitter 1 Build 1 point 57 months ago

you'll notice vcores up to 1.5* on H20
