rocketracer111's Completed Build: White Monolith - Sandy Bridge-Enthusiasm

rocketracer111 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 days ago

I am using a 360mm rad in the top. 240mm fits safe. As far I remember a 280mm would fit aswell.

Nice!

How is the ram running?

The pictures are telling. :) The front is see trough, no rad is sitting there. The tubes are heading towards the top.

The top exhaust works fine with a 360 rad. There is enough space for another 360 rad in the front and a custom watercooling loop.

The rad is top mounted.

Normal airflow: Front in and top and back exhaust

Since he is using the 4k screen in its full resolution he needs the gpu power more than the cpu. I did 4k gaming with an i7-3960X and a 1080Ti and it was okay. An i7-8700k unlocked only 5-30fps(heavily depending on the game) more on 4k...

Thanks mate!

Sadly I replaced it last year and the post for the new one is half finished. :/ I gave the x79 to a close friend and it is still running happily. The X79 is a great platform I learnded to love it quite early. It never let me down. Everytime I hear or read „xeon“ my heart jumps.

I don't think "amazing" is enough to describe the loving energy you put into this project. I am into craft as well. Damn, I can appreciate this so much!

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Nice one!

I had such issues too. For me it was the too much oced ram and after that some audio drivers. Check your event log viewer for registered errors and if there is a bluescreen event file(minidump). There is an online viewer for this file. :)

I rock the same case so thermals would be interesting. I removed the upper dust filters because the rad blows out the air... it now breathes a bit more freely. Removing only one is enough.

With the upgraded gpu the system will last you some days more! :D I would have sticked to my SandyBridge-E but the price of the than bought parts were too good to not get'em xD

I like those builds a lot! They are enough for the task you asking it to do.

Had such a build with a friend some weeks ago - satisfyied me more than building an overpowered system. (like mine) LOL

He already owned the cpu and mobo. They came from his office pc.

That maybe the next updgrade for this system but:

Yes I know, it´s an odd configuration, but the only things i do on this pc now are coding and writing documents, not much gaming at the moment, so i don´t need this much power.

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Well done for your first pc.

But as always, critics aren't meant mean. :)

I have the same case, so I can relate really good. Why do you have mounted fans on top? You have 2 * 200mm and 1 * 140mm fan ro push air outside, outperfoming the air intake volume of the 2 * 200mm fan in the front. By this you will have a negative airpressure inside the that sucks in air and dust in all unclosed holes. My old case suffered from heavy negative airpressure and I had to clean it every four weeks :$ If you had a graphics card pumping its heat inside the case, I wouldn't mind proper exhaust.

If you plan to mount a radiator in the top, remove the dust filter in the top. By doing so the rad cam breath a bit more freely. But it does let the pressure sink a bit. My old cpu got it bit cooler with this method.

The pre installed cables are a bit of a hassle. I agree on that.

16gigs of ram are enough for your work I see no problems with these but a storage would be nice. I think your system is well suited for the next years. :D

My 8700k @4,8Ghz with a 1080Ti @powerlimit120% with 4k gaming is rarely drawing 450-500w. With the last games played (FC5 and FHorizon4) my power meter stated ~380-420w (total system), as far I remember (I check on that later today). So powerdraw on this one shouldn't be higher than that xD

VIspReaderUS's Completed Build: Oh, let's break it DOWN!!! (log)

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

:D It works. The os will be rendered smaller than before if the set resolution is higher than the native resolution. But that doesn't count for games. Instead you can set the scaling % in the Os settings, at least for Win10 this is possible, so everything of the os will look normal again. Just use the same scale like 16:9 (19201080, 25601440, 3840*2160), the scale the new screen is having or the resolution you want to test your gpu. It is all done via the graphicscard drivers. :)

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Hahahaha To test the framerate in games at given resolution for future plans (since you want to connect it to a 4k screen) to see how it will work out with your system. For windows it is obviously pretty senseless. Nothing more. :)

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Nice build mate!

You can test other resolutions at any time. Inside the nvidia control panel you can set up the desired (and not listed) resolution and refreshrate of the screen. The result may look a bit different since the os qill scale on the pixels, but games will render at the given and chosen resolution.

rocketracer111 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I am using one noctua myself, but tbh it is too expensive for my taste. I got it because it was more or less a gift. Noctuas aren't the one I recommend to others because of that in the first place. Most the time I find myself talking about beQuiet, EK and arctic :$ And tbh again xD the plain beige and brown is boring. The new fandesign comes with a swirly touch to it, I am okay with that. If they had released this one in a dark scheme, doesn't have to be the darkest black, I would have taken the darker one :$

On which voltage you are running the 5Ghz?

With a gpu power target set to 120% 2000Mhz and 12kMhz are easily achieved. 1080p 75Hz doesn't require it tho.

Nice rainbow you have sitting on you table!
