Not exactly what I had planned but still OK
you still got a lot of stuff in a small case fair play, looks decent enough.
now start overclocking that chip, more bench points
A nice clean and tidy start! Now:
Get a blue reservoir, watercool both GPU's, get case to fit in with theme better.
(Also, learn to buy a PSU with a sticker colour you want in future )
Had the PSU for awhile now, will water cool GPUs when I upgrade to the HD 9000 series, and hopefillu i can get a 900D
I dig it.
why is the 24 pin disconnected?| and can you see the fans through the front? be a shame if you couldn't, being painted and all. you also mentioned air brushing, are you going to do the side panel?
and you can always peel off stickers, may void the warranty, but mods are worth it to me.
Leak testesting so I jumped the PSU. Funny enough you can't. yes. Never thought of that lol
CPU seems to stop at 4.5GHz. Can't get any higher
Was able to get stable at 4.6GHz @1.488v after I disabled C1E & APM
Also in person the res is blue with the water in it
4.7GHz requires 1.5v which is to high for me lol so i think i will keep it at 4.5GHz for everyday use
If your on an 8320 FX chip 1.5v is fine the 9590 is for example a cherry picked 8350 and its voltage out of box is 1.5v give or take a small bit.
i go up to where ever my boards hits its TDP level.
usually about 1.61v and 5.1ghz
At 4.7GHz 1.5v
CPU - 68c
socket - 78c
Could also try setting 4.7 as the stable on all cores and then using Turbo on a couple cores at 5GHz etc aka copy the 9590 lol
I got will try but I think I'm also at my board limits.
i may do that when i get over 5ghz stable. AKA 9890 LOL
What Case would you guys recommend below $130 and slim line 280mm Radiator
going to try for 4.8GHz and hopefully i can get it
for a 280 rad first thing that comes to mind is the COrsair C70 as its ment for the H110 etc but tough call honestly.
A HAF XM may hold a 280mm rad (check the specs/reviews)- nice case... It's on my short list for my next project
Can it fit a 240mm & 280mm rad
There's room in the top for 2x 200mm fans so I would say there's a good chance.
Check the CM website link (below)- you may find the answer on their site or in one of the many reviews that have been done on the case:
it can only fit one radiator
Trying for 5GHz but won't even boot with it XD. Think i hit the limits lol
