PC MASTER RACE
Inwin D-FRAME MINI CUSTOM CHASSIS SPEC
- Inwin D-Frame Mini Chassis - Custom Paint - Porsche Meteor Metallic Grey
- ASRock X99M Killer 3.1 mATX board - Custom Paint - Porsche Acid Green
- GPU (2) - Max 27cm length
- 2.5" Drive bays (2)
- Radiator with Fan - Max thickness 45-50mm
Lets see how much heat and power this setup can handle
- CPU = 140W
- GTX 1080 SLi = 360W (430W OC)
- RAM 16GBx4 = 12W
- PUMP = 10W
- MOBO = 10W
- SSD = 7W
- FANS = 6W
Total power, everything @MAX load = 545W (615W OC)
Please note - the Golden Silent PSU runs at 500W Platinum and 600W Gold rating...but at 615W its at 102.5% load. I dont know the safety mechanism on this PSU so it might shutdown from over load, or over heat.. but we will see if it gets to that point during OC..but at stock clocks I dont think theres any problem.
I have a power meter to double check that I am not going to over the limit
As it turns out, after bench testing, the PSU is good to go. Max power draw came at 614W when running CPU@4.3Ghz and SLi OC 2050/5300 while benchmarking Fire Strike Extreme but running this CPU at 4.3Ghz is not really practical as the heat gets above 93c during Prime95 torture test so to be safe I turned it down to 4.0Ghz.
Prime95 20mins at 4.0Ghz yields 85c max temp.
Fire Strike Extreme @10Core-4.1Ghz with SLi OC 2050/5300 = 19149
Here is the benchmark result http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9473781
I couldn't get the score above 19000 if the CPU ran lower than 4.1Ghz.
For everyday use I am running 2Core-4.2Ghz, 4Core-4.1Ghz, 6Core-4.0Ghz, 8Core-3.9Ghz, 10Core-3.8Ghz which yields 18400 Fire Strike Extreme score.
PSU and fan cables were not modified for ease of replacement.
Fan running at 800rpm-1000rpm normal usage, max 1400rpm torture/stress tests. Fans become audible above 1200rpm
The screenshots were taken after running Prime95(30mins) and then Furmak (20mins). Ambient temp was around 28c, air conditioning off.
UPDATES - getting some black rubber bumpers coming in soon, as some of you may be experiencing, they are discontinued so very hard to find. Thank you Janice from In Win (TW) for helping me out with this! Love you Janice
