Time to buy some watercooling tbh. Summers on the way. I got a free block for gpu when i bought it so might as well use it.
Backplate looks beautiful on the 390. I was considering RMAing mine to see if they would send me the backplate model. Good to see your guts are coming along nicely.
Im really glad I waited a week to get my 390, the backplate is soooo nice. thanks for the compliment too, your guts looks quite nice. any plans on a modular PSU?
computer is in parts right now
Finally drilled out the HDD bay rivets, took off the front faceplate. Going to make a custom one out of brushed aluminum and drill in fan holes and mount a CLC to it.
I thought about changing the PSU out for a while now. But I have a place to tuck the cables, so its not nearly impactful as it would've been in my sff build. Maybe if I come into more money I'll go modular and sleeve at one time.
under clocked, under volted
may it live for ever in the halls of severhalla.
When my 4790k eventually becomes a server, I'll probably mount the 2500k on a plaque and put service dates and shit. Pass it onto my children and shit. Tell my grand kids stories about it.
Fuck is there such a thing as reverse nostalgia.
Unff. Dual Fury X's. That gap. Mine looks so tiny without the dual slot shroud/cooler.
I know, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not entirely sure why it stays that cool however. I mean hell I unplugged the fan and cranked up prime 95 for ~4 hours and it was only at like 50°c. That was at 4.2
Cheap ass 90$ TV frequently does wonky shit and overscans like a mofo. See top left
Yes I have its in the works. But I have other shit to buy first. Like a new truck. Cause fuckin rust
Because it's easier to maintain and on a case with no side panel means it doesn't matter.
>4 sticks of ram on dual channel board
>Fury X rather than normal/nano
>Overly large amount of fans
Cables are all out of the air flow and the side panel is solid so you don't see shit normally
I should really organize my cables better some day.
Why not? Not that anon but I mounted my friends that way, and I was thinking about rotating mine too.
It's pulling air through the bottom, dust collects there and is easier to clean.
I'm using an H240X for its fans, rad, and block bc I got it for $85.
Cards are 290x
Cpu is a binned, delidded, and lapped 3770k.
Yes I have a SSD too.
>Inb4 mediocre psu & shitty HDD placement
No idea why you would want it to pull and blow air into the roof of your case when there's a fan it can blow it into and right out. Really no benefit at all to having yours like that and the other anon's is detrimental to his cooling with it that close to his GPU.
>147w idle at 4.5ghz, constant max 1.37 vcore
>119w idle with c1e turned on, but vcore constantly jumps from .076v to 1.37v, back and forth, several times a second
Not even sure if the 28w power saving is worth the possible future complications that might come with hammering the cpu with min/max voltage constantly. It's probably safe since it's a built in feature but then again I'm running way beyond spec with a high voltage.
Anybody else here enabled the power saving features?
Wish they had a backplate model when I ordered my 390; it looks so good.
You can do that?
Anyone here having driver crashes with the R9 390? What gives?
You bought AMD, fell for the AMD meme, sir. That is what's wrong.
Sorry, Couldn't resist.
Your guts are all shit.
This is the TRULY MASTER RACE OF THEM ALL.
So I got a Rajintek Pallas to replace the Noctua NH-L9i for summer. Just waiting to get a couple of new SSDs and HDD so I can upgrade everything in one swoop.
Hello /guts/ how are we today?
Its had coil whine since I got it, and its starting to annoy me. So I'm hoping they would send me one with a backplate if for whatever reason they had low stock or just didnt pay enough attention when picking another card out.
I'll probably take a better picture in a few minutes but here it is
It used to be on top of the case.
RIP Toughpower 750W 2006-2014?, killed by a shitty Coolermaster AIO.
That's the RVZ01 case, right? I was considering doing a build just like that. What cooler does your 980 have ? What temps are you getting under load?
Very clean 9/10
That's a a HAF xb evo right? Can I ask if you got any problems with your H100i GTX like that?
My H100 rattles like hell if I put my corsair air 240 horizontally (pretty much because air gets stuck in the pump) and as my brother wants a new cooler I might give him mine and get the new one.
>Takes picture with side panel on
>Makes GUTS thread
Get a real cooler, take a real picture.
Nothing special, you can do better. Pull your cables taut, flip your drives around (so cables are hidden).
mATX system in a full tower case. So much unused space. Get yourself some black / blue braided cable extensions and do something with that theme.
Pretty clean for what you're working with, but can still be cleaner. Would certain upgrade your mobo / cpu, that thing is ancient and bottle-necking whatever GPU you have in there.
Best use of stock cables I've ever seen, great job! You can certainly do something with a theme though, white braided cables would serve you well.
No real complaints other than the RAM being generic when you could have a really nice B&W theme.
Pretty well done anon. Ever plan on full water blocks for your GPU's?
Always love these guts. Can't wait to see what you do with it after taking out all the un-necessary case shit.
Clean and well done, stay with B&W anon!
Yep its a shitbox. Get a real case and a real PSU. Do some real cable management.
You can do better, especially with that wad of cables under the HDD bay. Also clean out all that damn dust.
Always like this one, but the 2nd SLI bridge still kills me. I know you did it for looks, but would you possibly consider an EVGA hard SLI bridge instead?
I can feel the heat from here, anon. Not bad, but you could definitely improve the look with some braided cables.
I mean its not bad, its just you have no real utility to work in with that case.
Nothing special going on besides that fuckhuge cooler. Lots of un-necessary space with a full ATX board.
pt 2 soon.
Also sorry for pic.
Poofans and blue LED's? A little goofy, but everything else is well done. Also is the 1200W PSU necessary?
Clean, well done. Could do more with a theme but its not bad.
Shit cable management especially with what you have to work with. Shit LED fans.
>Full tower case with full cable management features
>ignore 90% of the features of the case.
>Waste of space full tower for what could be an ok mATX build.
Mount the CPU cooler properly. Get a case with actual cable management.
Amazing custom hard loop ruined with shitty cable management. Come on anon. Its obvious you can do better.
Nothing special. Pull your cables taut.
Great use of stock PSU cables, though the rest of the whole thing is a hodgepodge. I do envy your mobo having a lateral USB 3 slot as opposed to a vertical one though.
Perfect example of guts.
Good use of stock PSU cables. Though you did a water loop, why not spend some money for some braided cables?
Very nice. That GPU retaining 'pole' is cracking me up though.
Clean great guts as usual.
Very nice and clean. Only gripe is the Hyper 212 in what could be just a really nice aesthetic.
Full ATX for what could better be a mATX build. Not bad, just nothing special.
Apply yourself. Clean it. Get a real case. Upgrade your components once every 10 years at least.
Very nice, though you could do more with black / orange. Also don't like that all the cables are stuffed in the middle, though theres not much you can do with them.
I'm alright. Can you please change your PCIe power cable to the standard black one. Ruins the point of so many other blue components.
pt 3 soon
Very nice, great use of stock PSU cables. What is that GPU though? Obviously an Asus card, but I've never seen a hybrid water cooled / air cooled one.
Basic, but clean.
Please upgrade your components once a decade. Get a real case.
Full ATX case for an mATX build. Nothing special otherwise.
guts /g/uys. For anyone who is unsure, Powercolor PCS+ cooled cards are GOAT. Amazing. I had the PCS+ 290 xfire. One card had bad RAM module. They sent my 390 PCS+ for replacement and it is even better. Idles at 45-50C with fans completely off. Fans don't even kick on until 60C and card stays under 70C while under stress testing load.
yeah its a haf xb evo
i'm using a corsair h110i gt 280mm on my cpu. i'm not using the stock fans it came with it, instead using two pwm 140mm noctua industrial 3000rpm fans. they have silicon covers on so i don't get any vibrations.
overall i have zero complaints with it. no rattles, vibrations, or pump noise. its very quiet.
>Very nice, great use of stock PSU cables. What is that GPU though? Obviously an Asus card, but I've never seen a hybrid water cooled / air cooled one.
its an asus poseidon 980 ti. its a super nice card
I know its not. What I'm saying is with the way you built you had no reason to get an ATX board. Unless you have future plans for SLI you really only ever need mATX.
No. I want to see yours. I want to see how awful your cable management is. What are you hiding behind those panels because I know its something.
Very cool. What kind of OC's do you get out of the 980 ti?
on stock voltage i hit 1.47ghz with boost. i don't break 50c load temps.
if i set my own fan profile on the cards fans i can get it down to 45c at 60% fan speed. but i just leave it on default which vis 30% since 50c is insanely low already. i don't even have my rad fans come close to 3,000. they run around 2000 max.
Binned likely meaning he bought it from a place that tested it as a good overclocker / low voltage.
Delidded meaning the lid on the actual CPU was removed to apply good thermal paste
Lapped meaning he sanded the heatsink until the copper was visible, which allows for better heat transmission.
This is all for better temps and overclocks.
Anon, as someone who plans to soon WC their Fury X, how hard was it for you to remove the shroud?
I have a 56 piece IFIXIT screw kit so I'm pretty confident I have the screw heads required (I've taken the first covering off, for example) but I've not touched anything after that.
Is it an easy job to remove the stock cooler?
>What are you hiding behind those panels because I know its something
fine I take another one tomorow but bring a plate and go lite on the Brecky faggot because you are going to be eating a big old slice of humble pie
>No case fans
>PSU seems dangerous, actually says "CAUTION:HARARDOUS AREA" on the label
>GPU (or something whatever) takes in molex power, plus wire management is a mess
I'd rate it 10/10 :)
>can't get into bios
>can't change boot order
>can't manually choose boot device
am i stuck with fedora on this laptop forever now?
>sleeved cables STILL haven't arrived yet
>I mean its not bad, its just you have no real utility to work in with that case
Don't need utility. I am using it for the small form factor. Eventually it'll have a clock and misc digital read out on the front with a blue ray player and go into my entertainment center with two 6tb WD reds for media center goodness.
The slim form factor and shiny case are the only thing it really needs. I could potentially turn it into a "gaming" console by eventually adding a low profile GTX 950, and a wifi/blue tooth internal card.
Guest Computer, Server, Media Center. That's the goal.
Is there a fan on that radiator that's out of the camera shot? Even then you're dumping hot air into the case
That would look gorgeous with a Nano. Just sayin'
Phobya DC12-220 12Volt Pump
and Phobya Balancer 150
No one makes a fullcover block for the FTW 980. Thought about doing a universal for the GPUs and heatsinks for the VRM and such, but I derno if it's a good idea.
>red glare from the flames of this poster's house burning down
Binned wasn't the right word to use there, as it was the first chip i picked up, but I got pretty lucky. Did 4.6 on a mere 1.152Vcore. I pumped it up to 5Ghz on 1.3something, but I'd rather it last, and ivy's diminishing returns on voltage input applied very quickly after that.
Yeah I drained/cleaned last week, put in new tubing (old stuff had traces from the dye of the rad's previous owner), and simplified the loop, but didn't bother to get my cable game back up to snuff. Thoughts on how I should get those hideous PCIe cables tucked away?
The molex up top right is running to the mobo, and the 24-pin cable will be covered up with something less garish when I put in proper lighting. Would you recommend moving out of the r4 if I'm not utilizing its full space?
Don't give me shit for Aida64 I've kept the portable on me for a while now.
These 'poofans' are exactly what I needed when the Australian summer hits 44 fucking degrees inside this room. I was also sick of the typical red LED builds. I like color.
Let me put it like this, the first time I removed it, it was a very tedious job. I was trying to be very careful because it seems so fragile. It's far from it. Put some pressure on those screws to remove them and be careful when you remove the water block frame that's sitting above the actual Fiji core. It'll pop out the moment you remove a screw. Scared the fuck out of me when I did, I though I destroyed the thing kek.
It's not so much hard as EKWB will send you a instruction sheet about how to remove the shroud. Just make sure you have little plastic satty bags or somewhere to keep the screws because they're fkn tiny. I used a jewelers screwdriver kit.
There's a lot of screws and some you mightn't see so if you're trying to remove something and you just won't budge then there's likely a screw, somewhere, that is still in. Best to remove that top back plate first, it'll make it easier. By the looks of your one, it's the first iteration and there shouldn't be a warranty sticker covering the screws on the water block frame plate so if it fucks up then they've got no evidence to suggest you removed the cooler. Ez RMA.
The only place where I can get any sort of appreciation for my work. Wish I could build PCs for a living.
if it works it works

very nice. everything goes well together.
also a owner of a 980 ti, this pic of a fiji naked makes me orgasm. i feel dirty

even without sleeved cables it still looks amazing

looks nice but hard to see. its very dark

very nice but the yellow doesn't blend in well with the hardware. it stands out to much against the black / red.

Nice guts. I ordered my second SSD and cable extensions to finish mine up. Considering removing the giant red metal plate. Can't decide.
can I now have a non meme rating
Nothing fancy, but i am not doing anything taxing on it.
your gpu is sagging, your psu cables look ugly.
the bottom cables, minus that one sata cable to the side, are handled well. the brown soldermask looks odd with blue heatsinks.
for whatever reason it looks like you have a fan cable go all the way around your block of ram back up to the top of the board.
what's going on with your ram anyway? I see dual channel and 12gb. is that 4+4/2+2?
i5 6600k @ 4.5ghz
16gb 3000mhz ddr4
kinda let down with the cpu, can't get it past 4.5 stable, the 2500k I upgraded from sat at that..
I posted my main machine's guts a thread or two ago, so here's the guts of what I laughably call my home server. It makes backups and seeds my torrents.
>"Anon, why would you need a full ATX board in this day and age? Get a mini-ITX system, they're tiny and kawaii!"
I got memed hard. It is tiny and kawaii alright, and I kinda like the airflow (I reversed the fan in the PSU, it blows down onto the CPU and motherboard) But everything else sucks. It's a pain to work on. You'll note the high-tech drive-mounting system (sticky tack), which I used because apparently the CM Elite 130 vibrates like fuck when the drives are mounted in the provided bracket, and makes an obnoxious buzzing noise. If I want to add more drives I'm shit outta luck, only four SATA ports. I could fit another drive in the 5.25, but that'd make the vibration come back. Every time I have occasion to open the case I wish I'd gotten a regular ATX mid-tower, which would still have fit under my desk just fine, and not been so difficult.
that machine looks salvageable. I'd mount a new drive cage in it.
guts posters aren't really ones to listen to if you want maintenance-able builds. most people here would have to cut 30 zip-ties to remove a single cable from their build. not to mention, your psu isn't modular, so you're almost forced to resign your build as a rats nest since there's nowhere to hide away the cables.
Yeah, I did that because that was the PSU I already had sitting around when I built the machine, not because it was the right choice. I might just get myself a new mobo and case, if/when I have spare cash.
Friends guts. I paid for them and he assembled them. Don't ask me how he avoided every single cable management feature possible. I truly am at a loss on that.
you're autistic holy shit. some of us aren't that keen on minimizing every factor of our build, I like mine nice and space out, its easy to work with and provides great cooling. also I got the board and cpu used for dirt cheap so stfu.
yes it's 4+4/2+2, I bought the 2's originally, then got the 4's cause they were on sale one day and I never bother to balance it out, also I think the 2's are clocked higher than the 4's but I just keep them at 1600mhz
yea the MOBO and PSU are the only other hangovers from when it was a budget build and look like wank, it doesn't even have a usb3.0 connector so I had to tape over the slots on the front of the case.
I'll probably go back and sort those few stray cables at some point, the PSU is a bit limited for sata power connectors so by the time I found a way to have everything connected in a reasonable way I couldn't be fucked going back and making sure the last few cables were going to be in the most perfectly pleasing position
I'll try and find an elegant solution to the sag but we'll see
i7 4790k with a 390 in a Fractal Design Arc mini R2
Thanks anon, I appreciate it.
I've got a revision pump, though I'm guessing you mean first iteration of the revised pump consumer version? Didn't see any warranty stickers when I opened it up IIRC.
Thanks for the advice. Will look in to seeing if there's any jewellers screws which I don't have, though I'm fairly confident that I'll have them in my set.
Again, I appreciate the advice. Duly noted.
Thats a H5 Universal, my 390 has such a thick backplate that I was unable to mount it properly. I used to have a 770 with no BP and it used to idle at ~30C, with the change it idles at ~38C.
Agreed, Cryorig has lots of old brains working behind it and I'm excited for their next line of coolers
There are some quirks with the insall, just don't force anything. I worked on it for about 20 minutes before I found that I needed to flip over the arms that hung over the socket.
