Thank you for visiting my build! :) <3
I built this machine in memory of my grandpa, who passed away last year. His favourite colour was yellow, and my favourite was black, and the last present he gave me was a black and yellow toy car. He would be really proud of this beast. :)
Background: This machine is my 24/7 rig for everything which has mostly been playing GTAV, fallout 4 and witcher3 but has also seen some CAD work. As I am studying science in uni, this machine will see some computationally heavy tasks, which I know it will handle perfectly :D
Overclocks: CPU: 100 x 47 = 4700 MHz @ 1.376 V GPU: +87 mV core, +180 = 1501 MHz core, +500 = 8004 MHz effective memory Memory: DDR2400 XMP
Modifications: All cables are fully custom sleeved using paracord, and I have stuck some carbon vinyl onto the backboard to cover up the holes. The power button and front thermaltake logos are painted, and the originally blue LED's of the fan controller and the power button are replaced with yellow LED's. The hard drive cage has been painted with yellow, and holes drilled on the underside to accommodate the pump. The snap rings in the SP120 fans for the bottom EX240 radiator have been painted yellow. The monkey hugging the PCI-e cables doubles as a coil whine suppressor because there's iron material all around his body.
Temperatures (degrees celsius) (25 ambient): - Idle: CPU: 30; GPU: 25 - Gaming: CPU: 50; GPU: 42 - Intelburntest: CPU: 80 - Furmark: GPU: 45 My temperatures for CPU are very high when overclocked and under load because of the subpar stock thermal paste between the IHS and the CPU chip which cannot be fixed without de-lidding.
