Yeah I meant to enter the 2GB sticks 4 times, which I forgot to do. You can see in the photos there are 4 sticks; each are 2GB. Oops!

At 25C room temperature and a max 60% fan curve, I only get to 72C (inside the case). Download Sapphrie TRIXX for OCing, managing fan curves and power limits, that software is seriously underrepresented. IMO Sapphire make the best custom cards in AMD's family.

EDIT: Unfortunately, you can really only expect RX590 performance and the RX590 seems to OC better, so when each are at their best, the RX590 probably does slightly better.

hehe, yep the 4820k is not listed. It was an ex-server component.

Welp. our formatting for dates is DD/MM/YY so it unfortunately didn't have that check when I entered the date manually :(

It's rare to see such smart purchases for a first timer, this is excellent price-to-performance. You researched very well. Nice work!

Love dual chamber cases, there's almost no way you can have bad cabling (and thus great airflow) in them. Just as your is here! I have no idea why they're not more popular. But I can't imagine the airflow being better than your air 540 in this case; there is only air coming in from two sides- it makes the use of your front fans quite inefficient also. Just my two cents, great looking guild and nice selection nonetheless!

You should move your CPU radiator to the top, to push hot air out (hot air rises). Then you can pull cold air in from the front of the case. Temps should improve all around.

Hey thanks! Really appreciated.

If you're referring to the off-side & backside of the case (with the psu), that's just sunlight I believe. Camera didn't do the best job of discerning that it seems.

The GPU won't hit beyond 60c under load, but it's not the best overclocker. Using Sapphire Trixx OC utility. With up to +40mV and a max power limit, I still couldn't get it to run without stuttering on most games. I know it's got headroom because the temps are fine and the machine never actually crashes, just the game- it's just not stable. Currently sits at +15mV on 1.09GHz on the clock, 550MHz memory clock and runs all games stable. I have it at -12mV when just browsing the internet.

The CPU is around 43 on idle- it's a very hot chip! Even so, that seems like decent headroom to OC but these chips are infamous for locking up when running at higher speeds. I could not get any OC on these chips without it locking up; I've even had to disable the turbo boost because it locks up whenever it jumps to 5GHz for too long! Some people get lucky and manage to get beyond 5GHz, but I haven't had any luck.

edit: I've since attached my idle CPU and GPU clock & temps!

Hey thanks! I spent alot of my procrastination time in between studying to learn about custom looping. I was motivated firstly because I got the fury for such a great price but also because Australian summers will push you to do it. Honestly EKWB's website (the shopping guide on the front page) was a good place to get my foot in the door and from there I referred to http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/pcnr_wc to get started + I watched singularitycomputer's beginner's guide to learn about radiator fin thickness and optimal materials, pump speed and other niche details to consider. Alongside other build logs on youtube and a week's worth of labour I eventually landed with this!

Thanks! The Fury was $350 aud used (about 4 mths use according to seller) on ebay, got it around september '16. It scales really well at the higher resolutions thanks to the hbm and I've yet to see it hit 4gb on the vram (comes close though).
