Description

Another build for someone, they wanted something that could handle 1080p with no problems, wifi but still have the option to overclock with a full ATX board. I helped them with picking out the parts and did the job.

CPU - I was able to achieve a 4.4ghz overclock using the h80i cooler and have zero issues with cooling, highest on the cores during occt/aida 64 was 57 degrees. I unfortunately could not hit 4.5 without adding way too much voltage...just got unlucky from the factory. idles 18-20 on the cores.

Ram - Decided on the LPX from corsair at 2400mhz, price was right at the time.

GPU - Pretty happy with the choice here, was able to push the card up to 2100mhz easily while hoovering around 50 degrees load. I used the fan curve and never really had to touch it. Idles around 25 degrees. I did have to use a gpu holder because of the sag, it was a lot but this saved it from doing any damage.

Motherboard - Went with the ATX wifi board from MSI, installing the wifi/bluetooth module was easy and everything went smooth, bios was easy to navigate.

SSD - USed my ssd for the build i had laying around, was brand new and was a replacement rma from a different ssd back in the day.

Power Supply - Decided on the 650g2, slight overkill but quality psu. Quiet and full modular.

The rest was just using parts i had, extra cables and everything to put it together. Was a fun little build.

Would you recommend the motherboard? I was looking into buying that same one

Sorry for the late response, but yeah I would, it wasn't horrible adding the bluetooth module or the wifi card. And it was stable and solid.

Cool, thanks for the reply. I actually just bought it but haven't yet built the system, but it looks great

Is that 57 ° under load, after overclocking? I have an i5 6600k in my build and was thinking of upgrading the cooler to overclock.

My I5-6600K doesn't get above 43C under load and I'm using a Corsair H100i V2 cooler

But is it overclocked? And if it is, how much?

It's stock but even when I did OC it to 4.3 Ghz, the temp didn't go past like 55C if I remember correctly lol

I just realized his was OC'd to 4.4 Ghz, I was originally thinking it was stock... I was going to say that sounds like it's running hot for stock speeds but it's not stock.

Bro, you shouldn't have a computer if you don't know if your OC'd

Bro... of course I know, I overclocked it myself. I was saying the temp was around 55C "If I remember correctly."

Yes thats 57 under load, 1.29 voltage on manual at 4.4. Using Noctua NT-H1. I couldn't go higher because the voltage needed was up towards 1.4 and didn't feel comfortable letting that go for 24/7 voltage.

Beautiful build with quality components. I love the dual LED fan configuration on that AIO also. +1 for using a Phanteks case, those are, hands down, the best budget Enthusiast cases around.

Thanks! The case was pretty easy to work with, for the money i agree it has a ton of features and can do a ton.

Where did you buy the GPU brace?

I got it off Amazon, its called "Puget Systems Universal Acrylic GPU Brace " The logo etched is on the backside so when you install it you see it the right way but covered it with that sticker.

What is the light bar your are using? That looks so cool. Is it software controllable? An how are you mounting the SSD in the front? Is it double sided tape or velcro or something else?

  • 46 months ago

I used velcro for the sdd yep and the side light is the inverterless ccfl light bar. That one is the 12inch and its just like the regular but no inverter, just straight to the psu via 4 pin molex. It's not controllable , just a static light but does come in different colors like blue green etc.

do the 2 GPU fans spin together at 60c? or only 1

  • 41 months ago

I had it set to spin on idle even but yeah both would come on if i had it default to only come on at 60
