a great pc that makes sense, congrats
cpu is fine, i had an fx 6300 paired with a 290x and was able to set gta 5 to high no sweat, i also had a gtx 970 borrowed from a friend, no propblem either
nice rig, i like the case. Do you live in the desert? +1
really nice build. i had an fx 6300 paired a gtx 970 for a month for testing purposes and i know how awesome they perform together. watch out for gpu sag, a buddy of mine was getting graphical artifacts with this gpu modell when the pcb was bent by the weight of the cooler. Just tighten the pci e cable. +1
thanks. it looked very similiar
is that the amd mounting bracket?
i like what you did there with the psu, did something similiar with a nobrand 500w psu and it still works
u sure this is a 970?
a build that makes sense. +1
he has a fullsize gpu. and a fx 6300 is fine when you overclock it you can hit 4,6 ghz no problem on air(and 4,2 with the boxed cooler)
ooh glorious 9800gtx+ still have mine and it is still running, have to clean it and replace thermal pads soon.
wow that is a very rare mobo you got there. almost as rare as unicorns+1
awsome pc, the fx6300 is not as bad as everyone thinks.
nice cable management, badass pc
at what voltage are you running that cpu, that is a nice OC.
at what vcore are you currently sitting. nice build btw+1
fx6300 r9270x combo gotta love it. are you from germany/austria?
I like the idea of putting the fan controller on the inside
i can already tell why your temps are so high.
the BIG top exhaust fan is facing the opposite airflow direction than the cpu fans (turn the cpu fans so that they blow the air up to the top ,this should help a lot).
glorious cable management. best looking budget build I have ever seen
there is a red led 980? +1
exercise mat ;) thanks
gotta love the reference cards +1
how is the pump, is it audible at idle, interesting cable management
the 200r is a very inconspicuous looking case, looks almost like an office tower but you can fit an awful lot of highend hardware in it
probably the best looking am3+ mobo out there +1
jk. Nice build
psu silent as cheesecake
very decent build, temps seem to be fine, I would not worry too much. Since while gaming the gpu dumps hot air into the case aswell
ah, i didnt know that. cheers
what kind of cuda computing are you doing?
ok, now it makes sense +1
where is the backplate for the 970?
nice build, keep us posted how the second gpu will perform
Firestrike benchmark results pls
badass case,love it
premium looking without the premium nice one +1
The voltage is quite a funny story.
This the cpu chip I got is a B*tch. (at least I think)
My MOBO is known to have problems with Loadline calibration. That meant I was getting crashes at idle when I was above 4,4ghz 1,43 volts or something (load was perfectly fine). so I had to turn off LLC and push a higher cpu voltage Instead (1,5volts to be precise). But at100% full load(for example transcoding a video in handbrake) the vdroop takes the voltage down to 1,4-1,42. Now I am 100% stable at any situation, idle, load, p95,handbrake, cinebench,firestrike,bf4,gta v. We will see if my cpu survives this summer. I am thinking of getting an AIO cpu cooler like the h80i and putting some 3000rpm fans on it. Do you know any aio coolers with quiet pumps(I do not care about load noise, idle noise is what matters most for me).
For my temps I use HWinfo, for fan control I use AIsuite that came with the board.
this vs skunkworks
It is an okay build, I am just jealous because of the many upvotes, can someone explain?
I would have to pay shipping myself (the shipping cost would be 30euro where i live so it would not be worth it anyway) since the shop i bought it from went bankrupt. It died like this: first 8 months it ran, 50% speed constant usual noise as you described, then it started rattling a bit after starting the pc, just for 5 minutes, then it was normal again. and now it is rattling always at all speeds.
Now to your problem: I would put a fan on top of the case. As an intake it would help the cpu temps most( know that from my previous personal build http://pcpartpicker.com/b/3FPscf), but your pc would get quite dusty as well and unfortunately you be able to hear the pump even more since you removed the top silencing cover. I would just experiment, try putting the rad in the front of the case as an intake and keep the fan config(2front intakes 1rear exhaust)(this is what I personally would do), your gpu tems seem to be good anyways so there is room to sacrifice.
Cheers and good luck. keep us posted I am curious myself
nice build, had the same cooler, my pump died after 9 months,wish you luck. cpu temps look quite toasty but that is probably because all the hot air from the gpu is being pulled trough the radiator as well.
nice pc, what cpu cooler is that? +1
nice ten feet mod you got on that tubing ;) +1
I am not saying it is faster than an I5 when at stock, all I am saying is, that when I overclock the fx 6300 by 1,2 ghz it can beat a stock i5(in some cases firestrike physics for example) I did not even mention the k series i5 , just the stock 4690(non k),
looks good, how did you stress test your pc, just curious. at what rpm do you let your fans run at max load? +1
no not clock speed, but performance for example in productivity workloads like rendering, or games that can utilize all 6 cores, firestrike physics score, cinebench....
mostly productivity stuff but games as well. compared to a stock i5
you can barely run minecraft on this, how is performance in cs1.6 are you above 30fps?
you should run firestrike benchmark from 3d mark, it is quite common on this forum and you can compare your overall pc performance with others, nice build, you will be happy with it.
Foam will not help much on intake and exhaust fans with making them quieter since they are on the outside of the of the case, but it wont hurt either, but your gpu shold be far less audible. Thanks man, I actually used an old excercise mat as foam, the thing that works best is Bitumen, the stuff you put in car doors and hoods, acoustic foam is great as well.
