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

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).

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.

Cheers;)

Comment reply on rnaplus's Completed Build: Silencio (mATX)

  • 62 months ago

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.

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),

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.
