6700k gets heated up to 60 degrees by the Fury X's HOT AS FUCK air
OP from last thread here
still have 90s case syndrome
>he fell for the swastika fan meme
Now I have to stop it from doing that stupid noise when the GPU is at full load (that can be stopped temporally by grabbing the fucking case)
posting old guts because they were great
This shit was inaudible at idle and load, I kind of miss it.
Don't miss the 750ti's lack of power compared to the 980 though.
Noctua works amazing for me. Running OC'd 5820k and never get above 60C when using modeling software or gaming.
Going back to front literally makes the front of my case hot to the touch senpai, Fury X stays at 49 degrees tho
Now I like them even more
I hate Corsair desu and I really like the look of the Ballistix Elites; too much silver would also fuck up the aesthic
shit picture of my first build after I painted the case black.
I used a external power brick which I would store in that empty space when I was transporting it.
I considered adding a battery for a long time but never committed.
Enjoy your dust machine. I bet you even have an intake fan on the side panel of that R4, that poor soul.
Why would you buy a silent case and then open up EVERYTHING. All you need is 2 intake and 1 exhaust. Keeps it neat and tidy and temps just fine.
I love gut progressions.
I did a ton of upgrade but never really bothered to take pictures
I always took pictures of my guts because my computer is my waifu.
Here's a more accurate progression for mine, the little briefcase thing was a side computer Because my desktop was a fuckhueg monster.
tfw no one r8s your new pic
I keep posting my new build because I'm in love with it. The cabling would be easier if I had bought a more modular PSU of similar size and wattage; perhaps shorter cables as well.
The case comes with two magnetic filters that go over the fans.
6/10 Shit case.
9/10 is it loud?
holy shit that fucking case is so small. what are temps like?
EVGA killin me with the red cables
Can you run those front USB/ Audio cables behind the motherboard and through the CPU cutout instead of through the grommet?
The temps from speccy are under minimal load. It probably goes up by about 5-6 if I'm playing a game made in the last 2 years. It will probably go up by 10-15 or more in the summer. The PSU comes with the case if you buy it at $140, not bad.
>Gold Label Reserve
I think it's ok.
fucking poorfag go back to 9gag
I'm not a fan of your pump situation or drain valve, otherwise it's fine.
I'm glad my shit picture got the idea across. :)
I did this with my old mobo, you can see it in the top left corner to the left of the 24 pin.
>6700k gets heated up to 60 degrees by the Fury X's HOT AS FUCK air
Don't blame the AIO for the temps. The amount of air moving past the radiator makes any sort of temperature rise in the air negligible - at most, an R9 295x2's radiator (aka the only 120mm AIO that suffers from rampant heat soak) expels air that is about 3-5 degrees higher than ambient. That's right, just a handful of degrees for what is easily one of the most inefficient radiators for the heat it has to manage.
With a cooler like yours, 60 degrees under load seems just about right, and changing the AIO to exhaust outside the case would probably only yield a one degree difference.
What I would do for some actual temp benefit is to put a 120mm high air flow fan above the Fury's radiator and put a fan shroud behind it (Phobya makes one about 20mm thick, which is pretty good at channeling airflow). You need to get more air flowing across that motherboard to push the hot air out of your case.
A second fan on the top case mount would also help expel the hot air from the cooler.
my camera didn't focus correctly
damn i hate these cables
look so fucking ugly
There is a lot that i could improve but this is an Full tower case so i need longer cables for that
Fucking cpu is straight from psu the the cpu pins
couldn't hide because too short
Where could i get some flexible and long cables?
>custom loop status: Indefinitely on stand by
Anybody wanna buy a Core 9X case for 70 bucks
I'm considering redoing the comp setup and the drain valve. Not sure how i'm going to go about it yet.. Haven't found a better option unless I get a 45* degree fitting and place the drain port underneath the case which would be fine i guess.
Think that i'll try and redo most of my loop when I can be bothered in about a year
You should get a case that is an appropriate size for your components. You've got a full tower, but you don't have an oversized motherboard, you don't have any radiators requiring the space, and almost all of your drive cages are empty. That's just plain stupid.
You'd have to pay me to take it, not the other way around.
The case is solid as fuck you mongoloid. lol The customizability is insane. It's just more than I need, I was gonna put a ton of rads in it and some crazy shit but now I gotta buy a car so my funds are fucked.
Well i only thing i could say is that , i am ready for water cooling if i deside ever to do so
thought it would cost more than 300€
i would love to have a smaller case
the stupid person i was when i bought this computer
this is my first build , so it could worse .
makes me glad my first build was this.
Holy fuck the sag on that top card.
Going on a year with this build. Picture is old but still nothing has changed. No dust, no sag. Don't have any plans to change anything until at least Kabylake / Pascal / Volta.
Okay, I fixed it just for you.
Well, rather have all 6 be the same yeah? And those 90 degree connectors just piss me off.
i just dont get it guys!!!
seriously, why you spend like 3k on your fucking guts nad try to stuff all this shit into a
more space more air, more air easier airflow and cooling.
think about it for a second!
Gold Label Reserve is terrible, long live the regular gold label. I bought a case of the stuff when I heard they were getting rid of it I'm down to my last two bottles... sucks.
I heard in a few years it might come back though
And it's like you think air is much thicker than it actually is. You don't need a large amount of space to have effective airflow. Yes, airflow can be choked off with extremely tight passages. No, sticking your shitty build in a full tower won't magically make it cooler.
I don't know if you can't tell, but I don't care about the looks really. No window case y'know..
Otherwise I would'nt have chosen such wrong colors or have that retarded cable management.
It's nice and quiet tho
of all the unaesthetically you see in that build you only care about the saggy gpu
Can anyone show me a build designed around the noctua colors?
I actually really like them, and I would love a computer entirely with that color scheme.
inb4 I'm a steampunk faggot.
Not that hard to do. Pair them with an Asus Sabertooth motherboard in your socket of choosing, some custom cables, and maybe a water cooling loop with custom died coolant for a chocolate milk and/or diarrhea effect. Poofan themes have been done before.
Sandisk 256gb SSD
2 TB Seagate HDD
8 GB 1600 MHz EVGA DDR3 RAM
put some in there and you have color match
pretty late changed back to all black cables
It's a normie machine that won't ever see anything but Facebook, YouTube, and word processing.
CPU is fine for the workload.
Mobo has a Sata 3 slot which was the only major "requirement" I had for it. It's a mobo, it works.
PC was built for a coworker and I have no way of knowing where they're going to put the PC. I would rather have it facing up, acting as a second exhaust fan than risk them putting it on carpet at burning itself out.
The source 210 is advertised as an mATX case and was only $25 at microshitter.
Coworker only needed one mass storage drive for now but has 2 more SATA ports and plenty of HDD bays to upgrade later as needed.
All in all, for a $300 machine I think it's just fine for its intended purpose.
>not bothered dremeling hole in the bottom of the case for pump yet
>using wasted space on the outside instead of cramming it inside
>65/60 CPU/GPU temp after 20 hours of load
>Thinks a dremel is the best tool for mounting a pump
I bet it's the only tool you have, right? Like they say, "When all you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail." Go get yourself a drill kid.
How many revolutions would you say a 40mm fan could do, before it starts to get annoying?
I'm about to install some in a slim design I'm building.
And I would like to know if anyone have experience with them; by the looks of it, you only know about huge ass Noctua fans.
That is what I'm planning on doing. I'll be getting noctua coloured cables soon.
Does my GPU look straight? Also waiting for some more cable combs to arrive so I can tidy it up a little more.
Used a level as another anon suggested and it was apparently dead on. However, I used one on my phone and I don't know if I should trust that. I'll open it up again tomorrow and check again. Thank you.
It's only loud under load with SLI enabled. Corsair 760T is designed more for cooling than for sound insulation.
There are 2x sets of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811980001 and a single NZXT Hue kit in the case. Each kit can change color independently.
You seriously need some kind of vented verticle hood for your hard drive enclosure. Smooth glossy finish with a gentle protrusion a lot like the roof of a house all the way down it with perpendicular vents, in white with red accents of course.
A 40mm sleeve bearing I installed did 2k rpm and it was screeching. 3k and it was an audible ring. 1k and it was silent, except for the damn shaking. That being said, that depends on the fan. I've moved to 80mm fans which turned out much quieter.
>by the looks of it, you only know about huge ass Noctua fans
That's because case manufacturers, rare exceptions aside, realized a long-ass time ago that it was much easier to get acceptable noise levels and airflow from 120mm fans and larger. That leaves 40, 80, and 92mm fans as a very niche product that are mostly only used in exceptional circumstances. If you absolutely need one that small, just make sure you get a high quality one such as a poofan or a NoiseBlocker and then play with the voltage until you find a noise level you can live with.
Thanks dude. I JUST got done putting in white LEDs that I had leftover from a lighting project a couple years ago.
>Not using custom water cooling
What are you doing with your life /G/uys?
What are all the parts/specs you used in this one? Sexy as hell.
That fucking heat sink
Why water cool in such a small case?
That's the build i wanted to do but couldn't get a white mobo
That is to cool vrm1 pins. Shaves at least 10c off their temps when i'm overclocking (as i'm pumping at minimum +144mv through the card).
this one used to be in a friend's mining rig in Wisconsin and lived a hard life. the shroud fell off in shipping so I superglued it back on.
he used the money he made to buy a camper van he's going to take cross-country and live on the road for a few years. living the life.
Guys is newegg ever going to restock haswell Motherboards? I really wanted an msi krait z97a and put my build off for 2 weeks just for that one component. I might settle for the z97s since most of the other good boards have been out of stock.
Kinda hate myself for not getting a skylake now.
now that they're gone? probably once more but they get paid off to limit stock of those items to force people to buy the newer generation hardware.
check pcpartpicker instead to find a board, and install Hover Hound on your browser of choice to get Amazon/TD/NCIX price matching on visitation to newegg pages.
The thing is, that board is only sold on newegg. I checked pc part picker and even went on eBay to see if there were any refurbished or used boards. I was that desperate.
So what should I do now? I'm thinking about caving in and buying the z97s tomorrow. These boards have all been out of stock since a little while after Christmas.
Bout to remove the top cage and add an intake fan with white LEDs because blingy.
Actually, I suppose this might be a good place to ask instead of making a new thread: for those of you running sli/xfire, is there anything significant to be gained from doing so or is it just a meme?
Try relocating the radiator to the back exhaust (it might be thick enough to cover about a third of your CPU cooler, but your CPU cooler will still get more than enough air regardless), or see if you can mount the radiator upside-down on the front bottom mount.
Worst comes to worse, just put an exhausting top fan right above the CPU so that the hot air has another place it can go after exiting the heatsink.
I don't think I need anything more, but then again, if I see a compelling arguement to get a better cooler, I'll take it as a lesson learned.
>twas on sale.
I was under the impression windforce has about the best heat distribution short of water cooling.
Like above, I'll gladly take advice if it's not just faboying.
I don't know if it's the best. But this bastard (pic) had some very effective cooling.
I havn't had it for long, but it hasn't been something noticeable at all.
ASUS GTX960 MOC 4GB GDDR5
SLI is something you should do only if your okay with one card getting nuked by the other card due to airflow. I only did it because I picked up my other 760 from a friend for $80
now with idle and load temps (~4h of witcher3).
mirin my bclk fluctuations? (100x41)
Posting new guts.
Holy fucking shit, that's cluttered.
This is really cool to see, especially the progression of your skillset in cable management af watercooling.
Jesus fucking christ, that's a big tower.
Very impressively packed for such a small case, though. Got a Firestrike score?
my eyes fucking hurt, and it's because of the poor ass lighting
R8 n h8?
I just tried an Asus 970 strix in here.. While it looked nicer IMO, it didn't perform as well as the 390. I think that's because I'm using an ultrawide monitor, though. It's probably the extra 4.5gb of vram dong it.
This would look much nicer in a smaller case since there is so much free room between everything.
Poop fans and voluntary airflow obstruction. Nice management though!
Mismatched Sata cables, ugly components
If you take a picture without flash in some better light, it might be much better.
I don't see all the components, too dark.
I don't like the fan layout but cool components.
I like your layout but can't see much. Where are the drives also?
Blurry as fuck senpai
Can't see shit
Wish I could see more. Bottom not as nice
I'm doing a build soon in an define r5, tempted to replace the standard fans with PWM ones so that they can be controlled by the motherboard - is it worth it? I'm trying to make the rig as quiet as possible. And how easy is it to link up the individual fans to component temperatures so it knows which one to turn up when different parts heat up?
what happened to the xeons
my mid tower does just fine for my 3570k/980
have since added a carbon fiber rod to help prevent sag
>fellow deadhead on /g/
>runs nonfree software
I still need to open up the pump because it's stuck at full speed....
I have 500 dollars I could spend right now... I really don't feel like I need anything at the moment though.
i5 2500k broski. get some RAM while it's cheap. 2x8GB kits are cheap again and 4x8GB is also cheaper than it has been. DDR4 is ramping up in production and DDR3 is going to start artificially inflating by the summer or autumn.
using photoshop to make your case slimmer doesn't work like it does on /fit/ bruh
but at least you tried
>Shit tier cable management
>Brown and dusty motherboard
>Weird image editing
>Poor picture quality, yet somehow managed to make the image over 1.4MB
I hate this fucking case, PSU is longer than normal ATX one so I can not fit extra fan down there and it would really help with temps.
You could move your cd drives and put a 120mm fan there.
Rate my cable management.
Still waiting for the delivery guy for my gpu.
>How would you like your cabling to be done?
>Just fuck my shit up
Photo is shit tier quality, but you can see that PSU covers both 140mm/120mm holes
This is not problem with case, this is problem with EVGA PSU, because someone "smart" came with idea to make it longer to fit bigger fan inside or whatever the reason was.
You would have same problem in most of Cases which put PSU on bottom.
I doubt it would be very effective to put 80mm fan in there, most of those are good for noise making only.
now with even more anniemays for extra shitposting points
>that's not even a good thing
You wouldn't have had this problem in a non-shit-tier case. Your power supply is 180mm long. Sticking strictly to the ATX specification, it should be 140mm long. The thing is, you'd be hard pressed to find a 750W power supply of any reasonable quality at anything less than 160mm. Improving stability and efficiency requires more components and more space. 180mm power supplies are far from uncommon, and failing to properly support them is a failure on the case's part, not on the power supply's.
>Posts shitty guts
>Gets defensive when people point out how shit it is
>I'd like to see you try
No we wont try to do that, because we aren't fucking morons. Why did you even post here, what did you think people wouldn't call your guts shit?
Waiting for Polaris and Pascal, GTX 970 will have to do for now.
I put my stuff in a smaller case, i like it better, it takes up less space.
>can't use the cable channel to the right of the motherboard to save own life
you deserve your shitty comments.
I have >>52492236
and although the PSU is semi-modular there's still longass cables that I have to tuck next to the drive cage. case in point, my case is almost 20 years old and I did a better job at cable management than you can in a modern one.
Conclusion: learn to use zipties and extensions where needed. they are your everlasting friends so long as you have that case. cable channels are made for a reason. see this second box for an example of proper cable channel usage: >>52484106
I regret nothing so long as it's to better the airflow of a computer in need. also, flip your damn PSU. there's vents on the bottom for a reason and you'll be able to reach your EPS12V connector up top through the cable channel to the 8-pin connector if you do.
Eh, cleaned up a little today. Cable management is still crappish but I'm a bit on the lazy side...
>my connection is shitty please resize your images so i feel special
>3mb of shit phone quality
If you can't resize a high res, high quality picture, you're fucking retarded and not worth wasting bandwidth on. No, I'm not that guy, it just triggers my autism when I see 3mb of blurry cellphone quality shit.
There's no way that 750W is enough.
My overclocked 4790k and 980 Ti Hybrid was pushing 800W. Adding the second card and overclocking it took my consumption to ~1200W
What overclock are you running for your CPU and 980 Tis? Because I hope you're not right now.
People are autistic about cables, I'm autistic about my fucking image quality, nigga.
Holy crap, 750W on two 980ti's
Makes me wonder, could I run SLI 970's on 650W?
(not planning to do that, I'd rather stick single GPU, just out of curiosity.)
My 4790k was a bit of a voltage-hungry bitch, so I'm pumping about 1.435V to keep it stable at 4.7GHz. My two 980 Tis are overclocked to about 1370MHz each and a memory clock increase of 150MHz. Plus, the two cards are watercooled (AIO use more power than fans) and I have several devices/ storage plugged into the computer at any one time.
So yes, with one 980 Ti, my build was using nearly 800W at load.
I just got unlucky with my silicon lottery. I'd swap it out for another one, but the CPU has already been delidded and the heatspreader lapped. I don't want to spend another $300 on a new chip that probably won't run any better than the CPU I already have.
Plus, I know its quirks. My mobo allows me to swap BIOS profiles so I run stock clock for when I do regular browsing or work (90% of the time) and OC when I game or do rendering on a tight deadline (10% of the time). I'm thinking of downvolting and underclocking my 4790k in the long term once my replacement Broadwell-E build comes along this fall.
That 4 degrees meant the difference between running my radiator fans right at when it starts to sound annoying or having my fans stay quiet and out of mind. 65 degrees at load and those voltages is nothing to knock at.
took some more pics while I had my flashes and shit still around
Worst case scenario is your 4790k could draw maybe 250w, ain't no way a 980ti is going to push that to anything near 800w. Also if you're measuring power draw at the mains you need to take into account efficiency losses, with an 80+ Gold PSU that 800w drawn means it's actually only putting out about 700w.
Well, at least for me it looks decent.. Dunno if it's the way he took the photo or something, but I'd use that computer and enjoy it.
Wouldn't want it to look like this all the time, though.
well, in reality it's much tamer, this is a long exposure. Also the red lighting is from an external flash.
I just noticed 4chan is fucking up the color profile on all my pictures. ARrghsh. Forgot muh sRGB.
>80+ Gold PSU that 800w drawn means it's actually only putting out about 700w
That's what I just said >>52495462
But I was still drawing almost 790W from the wall to my power supply.
>There's ZERO reason to delid devil's canyon.
I wanted lower temperatures. And I got right under that I needed by delidding. There is no reason to delid a CPU with a soldered heat spreader, but if you're dealing with Intel's TIM, you can drop a handful of degrees which could make the difference. In my case, it did. You might think it's pointless, but it's all about the experience.
Keep whining, sperglord. It's not your build.
I set my own fan profile for the radiator fans, but even at a less aggressive fan setting (leaving the fans off until 60 degrees), the radiator fans would spool up to 1100 rpm right away. At 1070 rpm, you could hear the fans making a droning noise that irritates the fuck out of me. 70 is too high for my tastes, so I delidded and lapped to bring it down so my fans don't roar at 90% load. I know my 4790k wasn't destined to hit 5.0GHz on air, so I aimed to keep it as cool as possible without annoying me.
>But I was still drawing almost 790W from the wall to my power supply.
Yes, which means the PSU is actually putting out less than 700w.
If you still don't understand that means an 800w PSU is more than adequate, even a 750w would be fine (700w could technically be alright but that's cutting it close). You system did not consume nearly 800w as you claimed, if that was the case then it would be pulling a bit over 900w from the wall.
Okay, if you're drawing 790W from the wall, that's still 790W that your PSU needs to deal with before feeding it into the rest of your PC. I know that my build wasn't using all 790W (It's about 710W if my PSU 80+ Gold is anything to go by), but the build was still drawing 790W from the wall.
All the naysayers are saying "lol lrn2math it's impossible for a 980 Ti build to draw more than 600W", but it did. My UPS said it, and I'd trust it over the words of some random neckbeard that has never laid his hands on my computer, let alone seen the settings I've used on my build.
No I am sure, I just forgot to tell Photoshop to embed sRGB after sending the pictures from lightroom to photoshop.
Canon 5dII, oldie but goodie.
No, I don't use it just for guts pictures, don't kill me.
HDR IS DEAD NOW ITS ALL ABOUT VSCO HIPSTERISM BROOOOO CHECK OUT MY FAKE FILM SCRATCHES
>that's still 790W that your PSU needs to deal with before feeding it into the rest of your PC
It doesn't fucking matter. PSUs are rated by the amount of power they can output to the components in the computer. How much they draw from the wall is only relevant when it comes to choosing a UPS or calculating energy costs.
Your system did not consume anywhere close to 800w, more like 700w. Judging based on the power drawn from the mains is retarded, if you used a Platinum rated supply then you'd end up drawing less than if you used some cheap Chink shit that couldn't even meet the Bronze spec.
The guy's an idiot, but so are you. A 760 consumes like half the wattage of a 980ti.
That said you should see more like 500w under a stress test (most realistic usage scenarios will be lower), or close to 600w pulled from the wall.
>I said I barely push 400w
>This is under load
I used a wattsup meter when I had just one 760 and It said I pulled around 250 when playing games. I can only assume that adding another card would raise about 100w
Can you learn to read and not jump to fucking conclusions m8
