Mine never got to green led always orange and on load red.
Temps hit the 84C, which reduces the perforance of the card.
I'm not sure if it's because the card itself or because the case.
Thanks alot! Nice job on Kundalini build of youts! +1
Thanks alot! Nice job on the Phanteks btw!
I didn't install any software from samsung. Didn't even know what magician was till now.
Could it be that the motherboard has to do with this?
I noticed this speed was reached after installing chipset drivers.
I haven't changed anything. Just plugged the m2 in and that's it.
See latest picture.
Yeah man I realized the filter was on just after uploading pics. I just removed the filter
Yes this is exactly a comment I was hoping for. I have had gaming builds but rendering is new for me.
The client wants to do rendering on the GPU and thats wny I thought that we should care less about the CPU and let a good GPU do the work but now I understand that it doesn't work like that.
I'll contact him and will update you
Check topic update
So no need to upgrade ram?
this is not possible, you need 2 identical gpu's
I don't think you really need a 980 Ti for 3440 x 1440, 970 will do great
Oh man, the Pro M Acrylic looks awesome!
Now I'm hesitating... Thnx alot for the info!
So if you would recommend another case, which one will it be?
Working, what exactly do you mean by that? Editing? If yes, what software? HD/4K?
So, you suggest to mount the rad and fans on top of case?
Thanks for your reply.
As for the color: I have purchased the black one.
Thing is, I already purchased the whole list and everything is delivered (except for the case).
The client wants a red- theme. You think the mobo and ram will bottleneck?
By the way, the sabertooth exceeds his budget.
I had to go with the 170a pro because of the budget of the client.
White building, I haven't had any issues, in fact I think the z170a pro is a great mobo.
-- The USB 3.0 on the z170a pro is not at the bottom as you see on most mobo's, with the nzxt s340 I think that's a great thing. (cable management)
so far I haven't heard him complaining about it, he is very satisfied with it so I guess it's a good mobo.
I am not sure if this will do anything to the performance but i think both mobo's are fine
Thanks for the +1
rear and top pushing out that's correct.
I personally don´t like green but you done a good job!
It's not about the temp, its about the expansion-slot that has more to offer.
The top slot runs pciex16, he definitely should use that one!
I don't think temps will change that much in terms that you can notice a difference in performance.
Check the motherboard manual, page 7 (motherboard layout), you see there is (PCIEX16).
Now if you go to page 10 @Expansion Slots:
With that said, I think you want to move the graphics-card to the pciex16 slot for better performance!
Overall nice job, nice build!
Oh man, so EVGA does have better cooling than msi afterall. But man, you got really nice temps on the CPU! How can that be, I thought that amd's get higher temps than intel's. Is it that the kraken cools better than the hydro? Or is it the way you setup the rad/fan, or maby the case?
Man I really would like to figure this one out
Alright, thanks alot this will help!
Alright, can you explain what you mean : more efficiency?
I know more power = more upgrade capabilities but how about bronze/gold/platinum etc? Does that make much difference in performance?
Omg you're right! I should edit the partlist and choose the h100i instead of the h110i.
Man I don't know where it went wrong.
Thanks for the tip!
Hi, thanks for the +1.
It is the GTX. You can tell by looking at picture #14 (the box) and #17, the micro-usb is placed on the bottom. Micro-usb is placed on the left side in the GT.
Yeah I'm curious about the temp's
What a nice build!
Maby it's better if you set up the rear fan as exhaust. I think you'll get lots of cleaning-work to do after a couple of months.
Can you please tell me what temperatures you get on the GPU
- when idle
- when under load
Overall nice job! I like it
Between 32° C and 38° C when idle
And between 68° C and 76° C under load
Better than I expected! The opening between the case and the panel is just enough to get good cooling results when placing a 240mm rad on the front
Hah, in EU we use . to separate thousand.
R9 in crossfire, would do great but somehow gamers always go with Nvidia here in my country.
Yeah I know exactly how it feels.
It's hard to build something like this for someone else. Especially when you know how it feels to play on a level of 4K.
But you just have to stay professional, pack the monster up and send it when it's ready.
Yes it's my second built ever. I got the clients by advertising on websites in my country.
On a sort of a freelancer- marketplace where you can offer services.
I have built pc's before for my self but that was long time ago (when the first 64bit AMD processors came out.
After that, just upgrading here and there but was always following the development around the pc world.
I hop you will reach your goal! Yes, the M2 SSD is very easy, nothing to install just plug it in and your set. Indeed 2 cables less to worry about but the full modular PSU has made cable management very easy
Other than that, the client has an external 3TB HDD.
Yes it does, you can see on the 6th and 7th picture.
Cablemanagement is made easy because of the full modular PSU and the M.2 SSD
Yes this one doesn't.
there are 3 versions of the superclocked acx 2.0+.
One of them, the superclocked + acx 2.0+ does have a backplate.
I totally agree on that one.
The client didn't want to have more storage because he is going to use an external HDD which he already has.
Thanks for letting me know. So imagine having a 750 or more watt 80+ GOLD PSU, would it make much difference in performance?
