Bottom and side intakes, then it uses natural heat radiation to have heat rise out of the case.
Good homage to Bitwit's Dancase build, also with an AIO.
Also, cat for scale +1!
Make sure your FFmpeg has NVENC support for the hardware accelerated transcoding in Plex.
Otherwise, Yay Linux!
No, that's Steve from Gamers Nexus.
Right now, this fan config has no intakes. I recommend flipping the front fans to intake, cause right now the case is in an extreme negative pressure situation.
Around BCLK frequencies of 160-190Mhz, there's a chance you'll encounter a BCLK hole. This means no matter what voltage, timings, LLC you set, it will never be stable if your BCLK frequency is inbetween 160 and 190.
If you push past that to 191-200Mhz BCLK, you can more than often find stability again on P55/X58 chips.
Watch out for BCLK holes around 160-190Mhz. I had that experience on P55. If you can get it all the way to 200x20 it might be better if your clockgen can handle it.
That Duke is just waiting for a waterblock.
Excellent start with a monoblock to an open loop!
Good novelty build! And in a Define Mini C to boot!
I see you replaced the Realtek WiFi card with an Intel one. No unforseen incompatibilities?
The M22 is suited for the i5, where as the EVGA CLC 120 would be suited for the 8700K. If you did feel the need to upgrade 120mm coolers, the EVGA CLC 120 works well inside a Shift.
Just to update:
Apparently the GC-Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 card does not require the Thunderbolt header to work on X399:
You could swap to a Cryorig M9a which would allow you to rotate the cooler. Seems some be quiet AM4 mounts just have this flaw.
+1 for Linux. :D
Sorry you've been getting such hostile comments.
In that small space, a SFX power supply that's fully modular will help with cable management, since the EVGA one you currently have is not modular. All you will need is a SFX to ATX PSU mount adapter.
I'd recommend a Corsair SF600 for this.
Very faithful homage to Skunkworks. Jay would be proud. :)
Very surprising how the Palit card fits so well with the Chromax Noctua cooler!
That tidbit about the WS2812b chip might be useful for people trying to run ARGB on Linux.
This project could use some of that insight:
Rear fan might benefit from being an exhaust. The GPU would be able to vent hot air out in that case.
For your top exhausts, run the rightmost one near the AIO slower than the rest of the fans, and the leftmost one faster. This promotes airflow towards that section of the case.
Uh, those don't have as good VRMs as the Tomahawk. In fact, Buildzoid called Gigabyte out on their ~$100 offerings.
Get the B450 Tomahawk. You won't regret it.
Sub $100 boards on AM4 I guarantee you don't overclock well.
B450, cause it has really good components, and would unlock XFR2.
There is no excuse for a poor quality PSU. 80+ Bronze or bust.
Better than the Verge build.
You almost fooled us with the memory, but you know better than the Verge.
Yeah, for better OCs, you could get the MSI Tomahawk which would outperform this Gigabyte one OC-wise.
It is a shame the OLED on the pump only changes images when the software is loaded and not all the time. Revision 2 should just have a internal memory fallback to do the animations.
Oh yeah, that's right, they only just started on the X399 Creation.
Yeah, then don't do PBO on this board.
If you're doing PBO, you can do a negative voltage offset and still remain stable.
Have you checked if your board supports ECC? Ryzen on supported motherboards can support ECC memory.
Where did you get the Noctua L9a-AM4? That's hard to find where I am.
Good choice of components. Since you run no mechanical hard drives, you can move the decorative panel on the R6 back to make the case feel more roomy when you look into it from the tempered glass side.
Very good idea to slap a UPS on it due to brownouts in your area. Don't want any of these components to be killed by bad power.
Since I posted that 4 months ago, it was revealed 1st gen Enermax TR4 AIOs had a manufacturing defect due to corrosion.
If you were still considering the Enermax AIO, get the 2nd gen model. (it will have Addressable RGB as the main difference)
Damn, sorry to hear about the Vardars shattering.
The Fractal Design HP-12 and HP-14 are good choices as well.
Don't use the Experimental branch right now as that's experimenting with asset compression which is causing all kinds of havok on OpenGL systems.
Have you tested Steam Play/Proton on the RX 580 yet?
Can you test Dota 2 using Vulkan? Supposedly that's where Nvidia put a lot of effort into async compute.
I honestly feel like a SFX power supply with a bracket will give more room to breathe inside the cramped case.
More pictures! I want to see the X399 Creation fully populated!
Dual boot! +1
But can you explain the rationale behind the case airflow?
Had to reply again because I wish I could +1 again for the cat.
Huh, so the 2700X even under PBO works great with the C7 Cu in such a cramped case!
You might need a Uninterruptable Power Supply. The voltage coming from your wall might not be enough and it's tripping the AC undervoltage protection of your PSU.
Which direction are the fans blowing the air on the H75? Ideally it should be blowing into the case, because any airflow (even if it's warm air) benefits the thermal situation in the case.
Why is one fan intake and one fan exhaust on the AIO? Cyclonic airflow isn't great for the air patterns in the case. I recommend making both AIO fans exhaust (like the leftmost fan looking into the case) and adding slim intake fans below the GPU to promote positive pressure airflow.
Prolimatech makes good slim fans:
Yup, definitely replace a PSU when it starts buzzing loudly.
The new PSU you got also has all black cables, and would look better as the build photo IMO.
If you don't activate Windows, you can NEVER change the wallpaper, themes, or screensavers.
Bitwit tried a 92mm AIO. The height of your memory, if it's too high, will cause your AIO tubing to hit the side of the case, popping it out. No temperature improvement was seen.
You could see about getting a Cryorig C7 Cu, like this build:
You should try KVM/QEMU sometime. It's what unRAID bases it's paid Linux distro off of.
Any chance you have tried Steam Play/Proton if you're running Linux as the host OS?
You have learned well from Wendell!
Both a lstopo and a IOMMU listing in the same build description!
The literal last thing you need is AIO sleeving:
This is so clean! Perfect for Bizhawk and Ocarina of Time Randomizer!
