I don't actually use that pump shown in this post anymore since it started becoming too weak to handle the loop. I replaced it with one of these pumps (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-100-glass-revo-d5-pwm-incl-pump) and I mounted the pump in the back side of the case on the venting where the SSD mounting was. I of course had to take out the SSD mounting but it was worth the sacrifice. But you'll notice that there is still some extra space above the res so I think that you could still pull off the 140 pump and res comb.
Well corsair wouldn't put holes in the top for nothing.
BIOS already updated and I monitor almost every single process that runs on my computer. I don't have any trojans so far as I can see. Most of my heat problems are dealt with for the time being until I need to clean out the water loop. Thanks for the suggestion though! :)
This motherboard is a very powerful board. I have gotten a lot of high clock speeds close to 5.1GHz with this processor and motherboard. However I don't have enough cooling to fully stress test it. But if your going to build a gaming computer using AMD I think this board is very good for this use. But it still works well for me.
Well I would say try going higher on the voltage but then again it could be causing stability problems so maybe try and compare tons of overclocks with and without overvoltage and then try to figure out what is your absolute maximum for memory Clock and GPU clock, sadly there is no way of knowing what part of the graphics card caused each crash.
Setup presets with the highest boost you could get on it and set that boost on both the memory and the GPU and then setup each preset with only different voltage and see how much of a difference it makes with each preset. Does it increase the max boost clock or make the boost clock lower?
Well it does seem like I could try and put that to the test. I guess I can test to see if there is any preformance difference with and without over voltage. But it can in some cases be due to a low power PSU.
Maybe zotac is having stability issues. But you are using over voltage while overclocking right?
They used to sell a sticker that was just the monstercat logo with no black background or anything. But they have switched manufactures so much I guess they had to remove a few items many times. But it helps with getting cheeper shipping.
Windows 8.1 does not approve. But I make it work to the max windows will allow me without giving me a blue screen. I already found out the Absolute max on my Graphics cards until the drivers start to crash. I counted a total of 26 crashes during the process of benchmarking and overclocking the GPU's. Sadly the max over-voltage on my GPU's are not that high.
True. But they still do seem to keep cool with MSI combuster and 3Dmark so I'm happy with that. It's just too bad I can't boost the GPU clock more than 168Mhz.
My room is considered a sauna when I leave the computer to render a video or when putting a heavy load on the processor. The GPU's are nothing because they idle at 27'c with water-cooling.
I would have gone with intel's hyper-threading for better render times but at the time I wanted to put AMD's best processor to the test. Got some good temps and clocks out of this processor but I should have gone with maybe the FX 8350. Plus It's for games and adobe projects so there is that too.
I think this might be out of date but I think they are working on a new 12 core processor but I think it's an APU but that's the most cores I think I have seen from them.
I am aware of the fact that Some programs are that way but I have also found some programs that only really use one GPU at a time even when SLI is enabled in which I do wish I bought 1 or even two GTX 980's but that's a mistake I learned and I will consider in the next possible build.
Well It still takes a while to render many things but it Is made for both gaming and rendering and working on adobe projects. Mostly after effects.
We also need to get more AMD motherboards. The operating system runs off the 2TB drive but I plan to someday move the operating system to a SSD
Yeah I know it's a little high but that is controlled by the motherboard automatically to keep the CPU stable.
Yeah I know the 980 is the best card since 70% of the 3Dmark scores have that card being used. It's a great card but still it's quite expensive at the place I buy all my parts at.
Ek water blocks. They did discontinue the water blocks I have but there is one that looks almost like it that I think will still work with this card and I think it's still on their store. But I would use the cooling configurater to find the water block your looking for. http://www.coolingconfigurator.com
Yeah I know what you mean. I'm confused myself on how to use the whole systems power including the GPU's and the cpu at once to render. It would make my computer render videos a lot faster in terms of what I am currently rendering. But there so far has not really been any type of topic on it anywhere.
Thanks, I mostly use this for rendering in after effects or other things like premier and stuff like that. But it is a gaming computer as well. Multi use because I don't have that Much money to make and use two computers separately.
If you wanna see some of my after effects work it's on my YouTube channel under the same username I used on this site (Mitzey234). It took 17 hours to render though. But it still did well.
I think this is the same sticker.
I'm not too sure but I geuss I will look into that then. But I'm sure that my processor should be able to handle it.
It seems like many people have been able to get to 3-way SLI with the GTX 760 so Please elaborate a little about why 3-way SLI would not work with this card.
Remember that those high preformance graphics cards are way more expensive than the ones I got. Found one of those at $1300 and that's not happening. Also I bought that sticker on their store. Check it out. http://Store.monstercat.com I also got a sticker that does not exist on the store anymore when I was beta testing their new store for them. Put it on my laptop as well because why not have 2 stickers from the same label on my laptop.
Glad you like it! :)
It's too bad they discontinued my water blocks for the GTX 760. I bought one earlier and they refunded me completely so I'm happy and sad about it at the same time. Got lucky another site was selling the last 2 of that water block.
I will look into this to be sure. These cards are a bit expensive and I would rather not spend money for no reason. Thanks for bringing this up though.
Got that sticker for free. Still happy with it on my case. Plus I have another sticker on my laptop because what am I supposed to do with tons of stickers?
I might have gone with red but the red led lights were not that bright and it didn't work that well. The blue looks awesome though. iPhone cameras just really don't work very well with such lighting.
The voltage is controlled by the motherboard. I can change it but if I do, I risk the cpu becoming unstable. If that happens which I lt has before windows 8 freaks out and then hangs at a blue screen until you shut it off. Yes I know it's high and I risk the cpu getting a lot more hotter and possibly lowering the lifespan of the CPU, but my watercooling system keeps it cool enough. But still I have plans to get things upgraded in the watercooling area.
Just when I thought I spent too much money on my Build and my rig. I see this. Better start saving.
Well so far the price I payed for was around $160
I can drop that to $100 but still trying to get enough money my new cards i'm buying.
and pc part picker has the card online for $145
Well since I need money to buy some mroe new GTX Graphics cards. Would you like the HD7770?
Only can do so much But it's still a good card.
Just did and so far coolant problems are a distant future.
Still I use turbo boost on the motherboard overclocker and get up to 4.8GHz on my computer with a stable temperature and speed, I'd like to see and intel processor do that. (not saying intel is bad though)
Did exactly that, Was a good idea at the time... But have soon plans to flip it fan side up. But the PSU is still working and has product replacement warranty if it overheats.
Well my motherboard was blocking my H100i so it would not fit of corse so I got the H80i which recently trolled me into thinking I had a faulty Pump... Of corse now I need to buy new thermal paste again...
My next build has a 750D in use and hopefully will do great for cooling.
I would buy a new 7770 again from memory express but they stopped supporting it. So i'm forced to buy the 260X.
Might have to look into that but since my local parts store still has the 260X still in stock I might look around. Thanks for the suggestion though. Plus I just checked them and they were on backorder so I will stick with the 260X
Was getting to that. But then a wild school came by and took all my time planned to clean it up. Later when I get the new graphics card I will start cleaning the wiring a bit more. Just wait til you see the back panel...
