Description

Built this Rig cause I thought I was due for a upgrade. My old machine that I put together in 2013 or so, used to have a i7 3770k and GTX760 with an Asus Z77 board. So I got together some money and made this "Budget" build. Originally purchased a 1060 6gb but after I got a 1440p monitor, I realized the 1060 was nowhere near strong enough. So I got this 1070Ti! Hope you all enjoy the build!

Part Reviews

CPU

4.3Ghz at 69c with 1.13v.

CPU Cooler

REALLY BIG. And will cut you if you are not careful.

Motherboard

Everybody needs some ASUS in their life....

Memory

They look cool. And don't worry they are actually running at 2666

Video Card

+2100 Core and +4657 Memory. 55c at 70% fan speed.
I also got it for $400 new from EVGA in October 2018, back when the RAM and GPU prices had not yet settled down. Was a really good deal at the time. And it is one of the only 1070 GPU's that is 3 slot cooler. More cooling means higher overclocks. #BINNED

Case

Great airflow, unlike the ones Cooler Master sold with the acrylic front panel that choked the system...

Keyboard

I love mechanical keys

Custom

I got it for free from EVGA. After I attached it to my GPU. I realized that it was also probably never coming off. Those of you who own one of these, know exactly what I'm talking about.

How are you getting to 4.5Ghz at such a low voltage?

Where did you see good voltages? Lol

You said you were using 1.26 volts for 4.5 GHz. Mine is running at 4GHz at 1.3125 volts.

There is no way, any 8600k Turbo's to 4.1Ghz stock. From the Intel factory. I dont think we have the same CPU diypartsjoy. Different CPU's will hit different clock speeds, and use different voltages.

I think I'm running 1.275 for 4.8.... Are you sure you're not running it too high?

I am sure, anything under that voltage will lock it up. I have a Ryzen 7 1700X.

Well theress the reason why we have different speeds and voltages. You have a 1700X and I have a 8600k

Bro it's a completely different CPU from a different manufacturer.... Of course the voltages are gonna be different

No one said that you caint air cool oc, but it is much better with water cooling.

yeah I know, I will make a custom loop some day with one of those EK kits. Maybe i will even go buy one of those phase change CPU coolers since they are now on the market. But for now air is getting the job done

Got an AIO, air is too hot and I want to push my 8600k more. will post more pics

Finally getting around to actually commenting... Love the build man! And if you wanna brute force it a bit you can do what I did and throw a Noctua inustrial fan on your cooler

Nah, that would be too loud and the benefits compared to the sound it would produce wouldn't be worth it in my opinion. I plan on just getting a AIO or make a custom loop with a EK Kit.

Yeah it can get pretty loud
