Tiny OC project --> 8700k @5ghz and 1080 ti stable@2100.5 mhz :)

by RiZeR187

Description

Hey everyone, thats my tiny OC project. My target was it to get the maximum cooling performance out of a Fractal define nano s case.

Thats my result :)

My CPU 8700k got delidded by me with 8auer Delidding mate 2 Tool and overclocked to 5.0 ghz @1.35 V.

Temps: idle: 31 °C max temp 69 °C (after 30 min prime95 together with furmark stresstest for gpu)

For the 1080 Ti i changed the original cooler to the alphacool GPX-N 1080TI pro and i used Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (liquid metal) as heat paste. The GPU is stable overclocked @2100.5 mhz at 1.075 mV.

Temps: idle: 29 °C max temp 44 °C (after 30 min prime95 together with furmark stresstest for gpu)..... that is an unbelievable result aaaaaand the pc is still silent :)

Together with my 144 hz displays it is amazing to play games and sit next to a silent pc that i never had before.

I hope you like my build! Comments are very welcome :)

..... and sorry for the dust in my case ^

Greetings RiZeR

really love the slight bends you've got going with the tubes. they almost look like fluorescent light bulbs. very sleek, elegant build!

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

Thank you :)

You've got a pen and paper but no stapler. :(

I'm a sucker for black and white builds. Nicely done!

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Thx

Enrico411 3 points 12 months ago

Is that a Montblanc pen on your desk? They have some very expensive ones. Nice build tho! +1

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 3 points 12 months ago

Yes it is :P

Minomir 1 Build 3 points 12 months ago

This build should be awarded also for the best "radiator-volume-per-litre" ratio, haha :) Stunning!

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

That sounds really good.... i need that award definetly

onepropervillain 3 points 12 months ago

I WOULD GIVE MY LEFT NUT FOR THIS PC +1

Looks great.

Did you do the case mods yourself? TG and front panel look great and solve the airflow issue

Is that a Zotac 1080 ti mini?

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 3 points 12 months ago

Hey thanks :) Yes i did the mods by myself an right.. it is the Zotac 1080 ti mini. The card has temp problems with the stock cooler. The temp was always at the temp limit (84 °C) but for watercooled is the card realy fine :)

westwandaguys 2 points 12 months ago

Nice work. I'm about to build in a nano s (keep delaying...) and I wish I had a shorter PCB for the GPU. I really like how you have the DDC mounted. I think a clear acrylic cap or stop fitting on the front of the reservoir would look cool.

Could you walk me through that TG side panel mod?

FlameFire 2 points 12 months ago

Hi, How should I modify your list, if I'm sure I'm not overlock? Also, as a newbie, I'm not very comfortable with customizing water cooling systems --> maybe I can go by larger cases with aircooling fans?

Wow. It’s amazing to see what people can do, building computers. 2100mhz overclock on a 1080ti? That’s insane, especially with a 144hz screen. I do agree for a higher capacity power supply, since higher ones would have better efficiency with only 480 watts, but great choice. Amazing build.

hi_im_snowman 9 points 12 months ago

What do you mean with only 480 watts? 80% efficiency does not mean that the psu will provide 20% less wattage, it means that it will pull up to 20% more wattage from the wall.

A psu converts "unclean & unstable" current from the wall into clean, stable current over multiple rails in order to supply consistent, reliable and precise wattage to specific sensitive components that require voltage regulation.

All power supplies must be able to provide the wattage declared on the packaging. Ergo, a 600w psu can provide 600w of power to the pc. Not 600 watts minus 20%.

This is why Platinum psu's are interesting - since they more efficiently pull watts from the wall, they ultimately reduce your power bill because little excess wattage pulled from the wall is lost in heat dissipation.

A 1,000w 80% efficient psu could potentially pull up to 1,200w at the wall to be able to supply the 1,000watts required by the pc. In this case, you'd be paying the 1,200w on your next electrical bill. :)

This actually helped me understand PSUs a bit better. Thank you for a kind, orderly, and well thought out comment.

hi_im_snowman 2 points 12 months ago

A real pleasure mate, I too had fell prey to this common misconception :)

yoorie016 2 Builds -3 points 12 months ago

Now i understand the PSU efficiency more! i bought a seasonic M12II bronze 520w for my ryzen 5 1600 and gtx 1060 6b (both OC). With this learning, i now have 600+w of allowance. Thanks!

Mtthwmths 2 Builds 3 points 12 months ago

You still only have 520W from your M12II. It pulls more from the wall, and puts out heat to make up the difference. Like a pump that is leaky only provides 10 gallons for every 12 it pumps from the ground or something like that.

Wow. Nice build man! How do you like those fans? Compared to other fans?

what price did you get the noiseblockers for and where? are they worth it over ML Pros

MrThreePik 12 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

What a tiny little beast.

Anyansayo 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

Wow, great build. Where is the reservoir at? That is a pretty good OC at a very lo temperature.

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

The reservior is on the right side, i installed it horizontal :)

do you have avx offset for the 8700k?

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

yes i have an offset of -3 (=4700 ghz)

Gooberdad 10 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Awesome overclocking. Looks great too.

Thumbs up and congrats on the featured spot.

tony475130 2 points 12 months ago

This thing looks really cool! Like the minimalist design and 2 tone color scheme. Also nice to see someone using an alphacool gpx waterblock for a change. Got one not too long ago and the performance is pretty neck in neck with some of the more expensive ek blocks I've bought over the years.

jonbuttcheeks 12 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Beautiful build. Can you please tell me what you used for case lighting?

RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

It is a custom LED Strip with the length of 1 meter. I bought it at LED.Konzept and thats the link: https://www.led-konzept.de/Zick-Zack-LED-Streifen-12V-weiss-125W-m-kaltweiss-100cm-mit-Litzenanschluss-ca-15cm

Awesome. Thank you!

Yahtadi 2 points 12 months ago

With that cooler setup. No way it could get hot

mfhunter63 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

Oh wow I love the fluorescent look to it. Captures a perfect image of a "clean build" IMO.

GameNight523 2 points 12 months ago

Nice Build Love it +1

Edit: Congrats on the Feature!

bmccarthy8989 10 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Congrats on featured. Props for doing all those bends, I know what this is like, believe me. Was there not enough room to mount the res vertically? Looks great by the way, I just wish I could like the alphacool block, but I just can't get behind their choice of aesthetic (total personal preference and has no real bearing on your build what so ever)

mitchthomas 2 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

This build is off its ****! Love the white coolant, Who makes it? Question, with prime95 was that small ffts or blend test? 69c on CPU yeah?

matogl0396 3 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

This is awesome, thanks for sharing.

Clocksoicy084 2 points 11 months ago

Very nice build. I'm hoping to do something like this very soon. I've got a question though, where is your drain loop?

Jumpest 2 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Hey man what cable extensions did you use for this? I've been looking everywhere for white cable extension with BLACK clips, but all I find is clear clips ;-;

Awesome build and amazing temps!!! Easy +1 mate!

Inb4 feature !!! :-D

What coolant are you using?

Jelmer030303 1 point 9 months ago

Hi, i wanna do a build just like you and i see that u used the zotac 1080 ti mini. Were did you get the waterblock from? I couldnt find it anywere.

darcymccracken 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

I didn't think there was a waterblock available for the 1080 Ti Mini? What waterblock is it?

Crazyansel 1 point 29 days ago

What kind of windowed panel do you have on the case, It doesn't look standard

There’s 64gb sticks of ram for server use, but 16gb is the largest non registered modules that can be bought.

Thanks for your tip but the pc need just 485w at 100 % load ;)

Ridley8819 6 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

I agree, 600 W is more than enough for this. Honestly I don't know why people use to get way "overpowered" psu's instead of a smaller one of higher quality.

PS: Nice build!

[comment deleted]
RiZeR187 submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

in that case dont fit a "normal" size psu because of the bottom radiator and for a sfx size psu is 600w max... just for information :)

aaavgerinos 1 point 12 months ago

You can get a 800w sfxl power supply by Silverstone. That's what I used. Not that I'm going to make anywhere near 800. The sweet spot for power usage is apparently around 40-50%

stuart.lund@hotmail.com 1 point 11 months ago

aaavgerinos is correct about PSU's being at their peak efficiency around 50% of their max load... however the efficiency at 100% load is only like 4-6% lower than at 50% load. Very nice build mate, am looking to do something similar myself.
