Description

Used this for gaming, video editing, photoshop and rendering. I couldn't get the 7900x to OC to 4.7GHz even though I played with the BIOS settings. When the CPU is at 100%, the fans ramped up to 3000RPM such that it was insanely loud so I used the Noctua 80mm fan for the CPU header while keeping the fans at 1800 RPM, which was quiet enough. The liquid temps only went up to 47 degrees so that tells alot about the poor TIM that Intel used. However, I wouldn't go to Ryzen after my experience with the 1800x, which didn't meet my needs, hence redid this build with a 7900x. I got the 960 Pro because it came with a free 27 inch curved Samsung monitor. The speakers are the AudioEngine HD6 instead of the listed A5+.

The Noctua fan is for the 2 m.2 ssds mounted on the dimm.2 slot.

Yes cable management is showing but once the tempered glass is back on, the cable can't be seen. Yes I could use the included PSU shroud but I wanted to see my AX1200W PSU. Eevee is the best.

Edit 11/03/18: Shifted the 80mm Noctua fan to the top and shifted the position of the fans Current Config: Top: 2x140mm Noctua PPC3000 Read: 1x 140mm Noctua PPC3000 Front: 3x 140mm Corsair ML140 Pro Red Bottom: 2x 140mm NZXT Stock cooler PWM fans

Edit 13/03/18 Delidded the 7900X with rockit tool 99 and applied Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut Temperatures reduced and managed OC stable to 4.7 but still throttles under prime 95, dropping to 4.5GHz. OC to 4.8 constantly gives watchdog BSOD.

he has it there to keep the fans from spinning to max 3000 rpm. without the cooler fans plugged into the CPU header the system auto Ramos all of the fans to max.

if you wanted to put the Noctua to full use you could use it to cool the motherboard VRM because as I recall the Rampage VI extreme VRM's run hot, really hot.

I put it there to cool my m.2 ssds. There isn't much clearance at the top of the case so I didn't put it there.

make sense, M.2's get pretty hot under full operation.

that wouldn't have even occurred to me as something that would need cooled, but I guess they do. It seems as if the itx boards with m.2s on the back would get quite hot then

What a stupid motherboard

It's full of features, I could remove the fan or put an RGB one if they ever made one. It is there simply for practicality reasons and the ability to control my fan without it ramping up whenever the CPU temps go too high.

There are 2 m.2 ssds behind the fan. The rampage vi extreme has a dimm.2 slot where you can mount your ssds.

In my country it was about 1500USD but sometime in November the prices came down and I bargained with the shopkeeper till 960USD. It helped that I got other high end parts as well.

That pc is a beast.. Maybe switch out the mouse for a g502 proteus spectrum if you still have money. But holy shi t, that’s PC build pr0n right there..

Nah not a fan of wired. I had a G502 proteus core but didn't like it. I love the MX Master 2S!

Just curious, why didnt the 1800x fit your needs?

I play quite a lot of games and also do video editing. At first it was fine in Ashes of the Singularity. However, when I played Total War Rome 2, I got only 25-ish fps compared to 60+ fps when I had my 7700k. Also the images were juttery and overall it was a poor experience. I also had trouble overclocking to 3200MHz for my memory, which I paid so much for.

Hey. Can I please get BIOS settings for the overclocking? Trying to get 4.5GHz myself with a 7900X and NZXT Kraken X62 Rev 2

Actually I didn't do much or didn't know what I was doing. At the moment I'm running at 4.6GHz with the new BIOS. but I can show you the steps to get it working.

Under Extreme Tweaker, toggled the TPU II Option. Your system will overclock itself. It set the core ratio to 101 which I then set to 100. (Not looking for fancy OC) Then I went to sync all cores, followed by a 46 multiplier for the CPU. I tried 4.7 GHz but it crashed on cinebench.

I personally don’t think 100 hertz is enough it’s plenty but I’d go for at least 120 hertz for a better experience

Yea I would also prefer that but I bought my X34 and not going to change it for an X34P
