For gaming and vming. Evolv is a pain to cram all this into.
Yes it can run crysis =D
Edit to give some background:
This build started off as a case migration from my enthoo primo for downsizing in February. It originally contained an intel x99 system and different rads. When ryzen got released I figure I gave the swap over a go. At that time the thick rads I had in the case were not performing as optimal as they could due to the limited airflow in this case. While temps weren't bad they were not great either. It was a red themed build at the time as well. On 3/2 I picked up multiple ryzen parts 4 cpus, 3 c6hs and a gaming 5. I then had to figure out what exactly I was going to do. I ended up deciding to go with the c6h and decided to just overhaul the entire pc. I picked up another titan to run sli again..., bought new rads, swapped to a larger nvme, got a reservoir that fit better, and got new cables. At that point I said might as well get new fans as well. The ml 120s are huge step up from the sp120s I had before in noise vs performance ratio.
The lid was always a problem for me in exhausting heat from the top radiator. I tried resting the lid to get that extra 4-5mm gap and that still did not perform to my expectations. Coming from a primo that had a 280, 240, and a 480 the temps were not something I was too fond of. Looking for solutions, I ended up extending the front panel out by about 3mm using longer screws and then having the top modded (shout out to Joe@ ModMyMyods for the clean cut) and fitted with a magnetic filter. The end result is good temps for a mid atx case that's pretty much not that airflow friendly. It is a really tight fit with the 2 360 rads and the rear fan. I maybe have less than 1mm clearance from the rads to each other and the fans.
As for ryzen... The platform and the board was just too new when I started it a month ago. I never had a direct issue with ram booting, but I found c6h boards were very finicky about ram seating. Earlier bios revisions I had one board die to soc voltage on the updating bios bootloop, I had constant freezes with earlier builds of win10, and asus aura and fan control that didn't work until about 3 weeks ago. With that said I am happy with how it is right now and the system is doing it's job as intended.
I am sure people interested in ryzen are curious about my ram speed situation. As of current I am stuck at a 2666 multi and the only way I can hit 3200 is if I oc the bclk. However, as I am running sli any blck oc has an impact on my pcie lanes once I go past 104.8 I believe on the c6h. While I can run 3200 and force gen 3 on the pcie lanes, I find this has lead to some instability under intense gpu load. Therefore, until a better test bios comes along I am just going to have to hum along at 14-14-14-34 @ 2666.
The pc is hooked up to a 4k 40inch display and a 3440x1440 ultrawide as a flank, and does it's gaming job well. As for running vms I have yet to fully test that. I know vmware support might still be touchy or not at all.
In the future I may dual loop this pc when I upgrade/swap it's components. It will be an even more of a tight fit then but I'm willing to take the challenge.
