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.

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

  • 87 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 :|

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

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

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

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?

Great job on the watercooling but kits are usually cheaper

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.

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

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.
