AMD FX-6300 @ 5.1 GHz

Has anyone achieved a better clock?

I just increased my cvolts to 1.566 because i crashed while benching.

Note: I do not recommend doing this to your CPU or motherboard.

  1. That's pretty good, but those temps are going to be skyrocketing! :)
    Have you considered a CPU upgrade?
    Given you need to OC so much I assume performance might be becoming a bit of an issue.

    This is going to be my new build.

    Although that is more reasonable.

    And yes the temps are outrageous. I am debating how I want my eggs when I start P95.

    And it benched....

  3. Lol. :P
    Budget for your new build?
    Are you editing/rendering or otherwise?
    I'll make a few improvements.
    Performance over looks every day, I have an RGB strip and RAM in my case etc. and it just starts to look tacky after a while, I kind of regret it tbh. :P
    Custom cables are a must though with high end rigs, they add so much character to the system.
    Noctua's industrial range are also very loud, and you have too many fans anyway, two intake one exhaust is heaps.

    Ah I think you missed the whole ekg water kit.... 1 360 rad and a 120 rad

  5. Keep it under 3k.
    I need a 4k monitor too so that has to be included, the one i like is a 23.6in monitor by samsung with the sync.

  6. YOUR BUILD has a few issues.
    The MOTHERBOARD for example isn't meant for overclocking. And considering the budget, I would spend more for an i7-7700K because the i5-7600K is starting to fall behind.

    In fact, i'd consider going with an AMD RYZEN build with the R5-1600 (a 6C/12T, $220USD I believe CPU).

    There's plenty of good reviews comparing it to the i5-7600K.

    There's a lot of CONFUSION about Ryzen. It has some issues to sort out (BIOS updates, Windows patches, and future games will be more optimized.. ) but basically it has slightly SLOWER cores for a similar price, but has MORE of them so is more future proof.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wYLmdHfFRg&t=37s

    (if you can't watch the whole video, at least watch the ending. LOTS of other people agree with the conclusion including myself)

    In fact, at 2560x1440 the difference between the i5-7600K and R5-1600 is usually minimal, and can even be SMOOTHER (less stutter) on the Ryzen platform.

  7. Okay, I see.
    Are you absolutely 100% set on an EK setup? I can get you 1080Ti SLI if not.
    Also again, as mentioned, unless you're rendering or editing an i7 is the far better choice.
    Reply to Chugalug_
  8. Making a build, but some quick comments:
    1) I'll be using the R5-1600 Ryzen CPU likely
    2) Monitors: you want a 4K, 23.6" monitor? Huh? (I'll look at the budget, but I suggest something like a 2560x1440, GSYNC, 144Hz monitor instead... )
    3) 16GB DDR4 recommended (not 8GB)

    Let's see what I can come up with... (USA dollars I assume?)

  9. UPDATE: sigh, no mini-ITX for Ryzen yet.. going with Intel for now

  13. You also want the Cablemod E series for cables.
    Way higher quality.
    Why do you want two GPU rads?
    Just use the one loop, get a prefilled water block for the 1080 and use the 360 by itself with flex tubing going from the rad to the CPU to the GPU back to the rad.

    That's just an EXAMPLE of a mini-ITX build optimized for GSYNC. Some of it like the case is user preference. I don't know if that liquid cooler is the best or not, though I'd look into the NOISE of liquid coolers as some are too noisy.

    If that's way off what you want then please explain why.

    Other: I put in an M.2 SSD, however if you go with a 2.5" you leave the M.2 slot open. Intel OPTANE as a cache is an interesting product and I've seen it reviewed. You may want to leave that open.

    *I put in a 250GB SSD + 3TB HDD. Now, a 1TB SSD is nice, but then you got a weaker CPU and GPU so I really wouldn't put the money towards an SSD which mainly helps with game LOADING at the expensive of CPU and GPU which benefit your actual gaming experience.

  15. Get these, and use QDC to hook it up to prefilled block.

    Alternatively if you want to do it yourself just cut out the 240mm rad.
    Cost seems a bit high though.

    That's pretty close to the build I made... though I put in a GSYNC monitor and have a few other changes.

    Your BUDGET is the confusing thing. I don't understand why you're going with an i5-7600K only. It's not a bad CPU, but it's already starting to fall behind so I would definitely go with the i7-7700K.

    Window:
    Think about the lighting. I put in the DDR4 memory I chose because it's RGB, as is the Asus Strix. You can change the lighting which is important when you have a window, or maybe you don't care.

  17. The foam was a test to see how well it reduces haptic feedback.

    Staying on topic this is the complete build I am using. It does play 4k but it stutters randomly and I dont like playing games when my fps is not 60+

    Also i chose the i5 because it was a mini build and I would only use this pc for a gaming rig in the living room.

  19. errr. you want to liquid cool the graphics card??

    Are you aiming for a custom loop with a reservoir, not an AIO (all-in-one)? Or was that just related to your current AMD setup?

    *you really need to spell out EXACTLY what you're going for.

    **GSYNC is the best way for game smoothness. If you don't understand it well, then maybe do some more research. The IDEAL gaming experience would be to have a 144Hz, GSYNC monitor and good PC then have your games running at 50FPS+ (depending on type of game).

    In GSYNC mode you don't get the added lag that VSYNC causes. So even if you lock the game to 60FPS in GSYNC it will be a much better experience.

    4K GSYNC is NOT an ideal experience. Once you hit 60FPS GSYNC no longer works. It's much better to go with a 144Hz panel to easily stay in GSYNC mode even over 100FPS and the lower resolution isn't that big a deal (in fact, 4K has application scaling issues).

  22. *RYZEN BUILD?
    I mentioned it, but if MINI-ITX is the desired goal it's currently not possible AFAIK. Unless he wants a larger, ATX build there's no point making a parts list.

    That's why he needs to be SPECIFIC about what he wants (or doesn't want).

    *and the AOC monitor linked above doesn't have many user comments. Hard to tell if it has issues or not, especially if it's new and there may be initial build issues to sort out. I'd probably go with the ACER I linked which has been around for a while.

    RYZEN needs at least 3000MHz DDR4 especialy with an R7-1700. INTEL doesn't need as fast of memory, but if you research you'll see they recommend a COMPATIBLE 3000MHz or higher kit. (though you may need to clock it lower until BIOS issues are sorted out)

    I don't like the FOUNDERS GTX1080Ti as it's too noisy. Asus and similar coolers are quieter.

    Anyway, good luck.

    The founders edition would be water cooled.
    What i need is a case that supports a super thick 360 rad and a 120 rad

    1) Jayz2cents is a good site. He has a few videos on water cooling.

    2) as said, PCPARTPICKER is a good start for finding a case. Probably one without a front DVD would be needed based on your liquid cooling desires.

    3) however, I would avoid multi-GPU and frankly the amount of RADIATOR you are looking at seems pretty excessive. A single, 120mm radiator is plenty for a GTX1080Ti, as the Hybrid models stay near 50degC at normal ambient room temp.

    And a modern CPU doesn't need a thick, 360mm radiator either.

    4) Ever see the Terry Crew PC build? (it's massive overkill on the CPU etc but it's pretty cool)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDZNXRAtXs0

    5) as I said before, GSYNC is what you want for a high-end build with a single GTX1080Ti

    6) 4K is not a good way to go for gaming. The Hz (thus FPS) is limited and the increased pixel count doesn't produce enough visual benefit to justify the loss of smoother gaming.

    Of course you can set a game to 2560x1440 and have it scale, but that doesn't help with the max FPS to keep in the asynchronous range for smooth gaming (i.e. 30FPS to 144FPS).

    7) Asus Strix GTX1080Ti (air cooled) has RGB lighting and can control case fans. You might consider making just a CPU loop with a 240/280mm radiator which still looks pretty neat.

    If you do go with a GPU loop, choose the pump carefully. Some have noise issues. I'm not sure if you want a full waterblock or hybrid solution.

    Not sure if you are aware, but water cooling won't really help gain more performance. All the GTX1080Ti's get roughly the same once OC'd. Lots of info on that including Gamers Nexus but the main reason is that too many people damaged their cards so NVidia started locking the voltage down. (it wasn't just consumers, but there was a "race to the bottom" with Asus and others to eek at the last few percentage gains but lifespan was dropping under one year so NVidia stepped in and said. STOP. just stop.)

    SUMMARY:
    It's really easy to throw money at a PC build because you want "the best" which a lot of people think is a 4K rig, but I disagree. Again, avoid multi-GPU and look at a 2560x1440, or ultra-wide 3440x1440, GSYNC monitor.

    That's my two cents.
