Description

Hey guys,

this is my first build. Parts of the case, the yellow stripes on the graphicscard and the brushed aluminium head of the PSU are made with folia in Dark Red Brushed Metallic.

You can see that on the pics.

The GPU runs on 2063mhz boost clock and 4404mhz memory clock. <- Update March 2017 SOLD ! The CPU runs on 4,7Ghz @ 1,360V coreclock @ 80°C with a Vdroop to 1,336V The RAM is a running at 3333mhz @ 1,36Vram, 1,15V IO and 1,15V SA

LED is an NZXT Hue+ kit with 4 stripes.

Next Parts i want to get in this built:

  1. EVGA or ASUS GTX1080Ti
  2. Maybe 2 custom waterloops for CPU and GPU - 280mm radiators alphacool - small EK waterblocks pump with reservoir combination
  3. NVMe SSD
  4. Gskill RGB ram
  5. the new NZXT X62 AiO <--- Awesome Design

I love the color scheme - it's very unique.

You can probably run the RAM at 1.35V. That's what mine is at for 3000MHz. Might help temps a little :).

Nice build man!

Thanks man !!

i really wanted to get the voltages lower, but everything below the current voltages make errors in prime95 blend test.

and its very unstable espacially in GTA5 i get bluescreens than. ive tested 1,35V this night over and over :D failed...

so its good like it is now and i will see when i get the next bluescreen ^

GTA crashes sometimes, but thats because the GPU OC.

I would just raise the voltage on the CPU, you have plenty of headroom I wouldn't go above ~1.45V and lowering the voltage would just make stability worse. Same for the GPU, just raise the voltage more.

so the RAM will run on lower voltages, if i raise my CPU voltage ?

I misunderstood you comment. Is the RAM that isn't stable or the CPU?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

it is DEFINETLY the RAM that isnt stable.

i know this from a first test, where my CPU was all stock 4,0ghz with 4,2ghz turbo.

i activatet the XMP profile for 3200mhz of ram and prime95 got FATAL ERRORS.

i made the same test with 3000mhz ram without XMP and 1,36 volts and its still running.

i will try the 3200mhz on 1,38 or maybe 1,4V DRAM voltage and see what happens than :)

EDIT: if i raise the CPU voltage to that high point, my temps will get in the 80s maybe and i really dont want that ^

because its still a 24/7 overclock and need to run stable.

and everything over 1,35V is more stable i know but i got the 1,35V border for core voltage in my head from most OC guides for my CPU, so i think i let it on that ^

Voltage control is currently locked on Pascal cards. :(

update to the afterburner 4.3.0 beta and it should work ! Only in percentages though

Keep your RAM voltage at 1.35v for a speed of 3000MHz. Try also rising the voltages of CPU VICCIO and CPU System Agent by steps of 0.05v starting by 1.15v on both of them, that worked for me. Nice build by the way and....a monster of GPU that Zotac :o

i def will lowering my DRAM voltage,which is currently at 1.38V ^ but first it need some testing again.

i set the IO and SA to auto, so my mobo sets them to 1,25V, caused by 1,38V of DRAM. i will just check if i cant go lower with IO and SA, but starting at 1,15 definetly will crash prime 95 dude.

have tested it yesterday with some lower ram voltage, and directly got a blue screen

The following specs have worked for me: i5 6600k/G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200

CPU 4.5GHz @ 1.3v LLC Level 5 RAM 3200MHz @ 1.35v CPU VCCIO @ 1.20v CPU SA @ 1.20v

So far these are the current values I got to achieve 3200MHz on my RAM sticks. I'm not saying you should use the same values, since we got different hardware, and even if we had the same parts, in the matter of overclocking nothing is "fixed", but I guess that by playing with those numbers you should get a start point to achieve the RAM speed you paid for.

Hey man, thanks for your info.

currently im at all "AUTO" and it works fine in Prime95. i will check the 3200mhz on my ram soon, because yeah you said it, i paid for it....

but i dont think its working even with the current 3000mhz.

because the 3000 runs now on 1,36V DRAM and 1,25V SA and 1,25V IO <---- those voltage come all from the AUTO setting in my bios.

so if i now go to the SA and IO and set it to 1,24V both for example i BET with you it will fail in the first seconds in prime test. :D

but i will check and test it for sure :)

It doesn't look like your GPU is sagging and I don't see any sort of support beam. That's a pretty beefy card. How did you get it to not sag?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

it is sagging a little bit my friend, you cant see that on those pictures that good.

but what is made is, i bound the cables to my case in a way, that they cant move. if i put them into my card, the cables hold it a litte.

but otherwise on the msi mi9 ack the PCI slots have a steel rounding maybe thats a little better than normal pci slots ? :D

when i was exambling the screws i presst the card as high as i cut and than get the screws completely in. maybe this helped a little, too.

I bought that ram and 1 out of four sticks failed. I would put an nvme ssd in that rig .

yeah man, im still thinking about that SSD but, priority in this moment is a second one of that graphics card :)

maybe after that ^

to start....... that gpu is HUGE looking!! 73°c, 47ghz. i think thats damn good. im at 4.6ghz and my cpu will get up into the 80s running prime95. i still have to tinker with the voltage but those are still really good temps you are getting. nice build. best of luck!

  • 46 months ago

hey jay,

im in the 80s now, too :D 84°C was max i reached in the blend test after a long period of getting my liquid heated ^ i reached this temperature in a parallel test.

the first was prime95 at the stock blend test, the second was furmark at a GPU stress test with 4K resolution.

prime gets me about 85 to 90 % CPU usage, but i wanted to go to 100%, so the furmark thing with 15% usage is pretty good for that.

And yeah, there we go, 84°C with 43°C liquid temp at 4,8ghz with 1,39Volts....pretty high :D i will try some other heat paste and see what happens than ^

My monitor is frying just looking at this, spectacular build. Nice mobo and case fans btw, using the same parts except mine's a Gaming M5, works great.

Hahaha thx bro, i really like those fans !!!

Rgb led are a must have nowadays imo ^ But i use them in red most of the time, because the controllers are behind the mobo tray and i need to open the case every time :D

Nice built btw !!!

  • 46 months ago

Thanks, also running these fans at full speed are still quiet no matter how. Mine are stock red, didn't know there was controllers that could've came with, but seriously they get the job done.

  • 46 months ago

yeees i like the quiteness, too. they also have a really good airflow.

the controller come with the package if you are ordering the RGB version, which can do all colors your want ^

with 2 speed options and so on. pretty cool

To paint the backplate did you just tape around the stripes and use a brush? I really like it and it really makes the whole build go.

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

i just ordered car wrapping folia, which is self adhesive.

the brushed surface is on that folia, too. i didnt need to do anything. its no paint and its completely removeable (selling the card when the 1080Ti is there)

i cutted out some stripes and glued them on the backplate, than very slow cutted out the edges that the stripes itself had the same forme like the yellows on the backplate.
