Description

This IMO deserves it's own completed build post because it now a completely different monster.

Pre-upgrades -- http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/Kk2

[Ambient Temp = 20-24C [idle temps were taken with 20C, load was after the PC warmed up the room to 24C, had window open to 3c outside temp]

Prime95 ran for over an hour and the socket temp got to a high of 45c and the CPU was 29c.

GPU Temps. LOAD. Top 69C, Bottom 59C.

IDLE. Top 24C, Bottom 22C.

I did this so that I could get 120 FPS for 3D with triple monitors on my sim racing games and amazing single monitor performance for BF and other intensive games.

Looks like an interesting build, but some of these photos make it really hard to see anything.

Why did you feel the need to take 10 photos of the PSU? :P

please for the love of god please fix your cables

That case is stupid easy to manage cables properly, please do something about them

Looks really nice. Would have opted for a 780 ti myself.

how do you like the monitor? is it a good monitor? good image quality? etc.

great build by the way. just try to fix the cables. lol

Awesome, it's just absolutely awesome. I max my games at 144fps with the 770s. It's a very nice TN panel.

I have the same monitor, and it is the bee's knees. Haven't had any brightness issues that I've read about. Will be rocking the triplet soon.

I don't think the temperatures on your cpu are correct.. And have you heard about cable management?

It's from CPU ID HWMonitor. It's reliable.

Firstly, it's impossible to have cpu temperature lower than room temperature unless you're using liquid nitrogen so I doubt that you've got 15 celsius on your cpu. Secondly, amd are known for being extremely hot processors so 29 degrees is impossible to reach at 8-core cpu in stress. I guess that you have broken thermo sensor.

Well FX processors have bad readings when at idle but apparently they have an accurate load temps. Ya, I agree the sensor is broken but it seems to be alright since the mobo is still good.

Would the sensor be on the board or is it one of the cpu pins?

I think it's located on cpu. You could buy flat temp sensor and put it between cpu and waterblock. It should show you the accurate temperatures.

i just think he hasn't run prime95 or something for the load temp but just a regular game.

What a messy desk. Ever thought of cleaning the desk?

1 cables, there awful

2 feet no one wants to see them

3 dont take photos when your drunk (i assume that is why they look so bad)

4 your temps are wrong.....end of....there is no what your core is running below ambient in fact i think its impossible without chemicals.

really why do people spend so much on good high quality parts and not put in half the time to get the cabling right

and why post it with dodgy photos that look like there is butter spread on the lens -5 but unfortunately i can only -1

Photos could be better, but I really like that you're showing the comparison in size on the PSU upgrade--thanks for that valuable info. Also, what do you think of the 2133s? I got the same myself and have been...underwhelmed so far.

The latency is bad but it's alright for $70 RAM.

Cutting it kind of close with that PSU...

Nah. Only if you go by what PC part picker uses to measure and I actually have another HDD so if you did go by what PCPP said I'd need a more power PSU as my max is 753w before OC both GPUs and CPU. But the CPU at 4.6GHz used a max half of what PCPP said it would be after a full hour of prime95.

  • 68 months ago

So you're telling me that an FX-8350 OC'd to 4.6Ghz only needed 62.5W? Alrighty then.

That is all I'm seeing when I run prime95

  • 68 months ago

The CPU is nowhere near the TDP and if it was my PC wouldn't be able to run as I have another HDD in there and that makes it 753w. I have the GPUs at 1.3GHz core and 7.7GHz memory. CPU is now at 4.4GHz with turbo at 4.8GHz, vcore @1.356.

Please for the love of god fix those cables and clean that desk... or stand i'm not even sure what it is. Doesn't even look like there fit 3 monitors on there but anyway... -+0 for now.

I'll be building a custom steel frame for it this is just the build of the tower.

You spent over $2700 in parts and you get a Kingston SSD? There are so many better SSD brands out there that could do more justice to this build.

Also, there is something called cable management. Google it!

there's not much wrong with that SSD, it's kind of low end for an SSD but it will do just fine + i think he bought it before the upgrade and probably had a certain budget by then.

Ya it was originally in a $800 build
