damn that Endorfy Spartan 5 Max was easy to install :laugh: (and the temps are good on the R7 5700X )

no RGB just a beauty (it's a Sapphire RX 7600 8gb Pulse )

yep look good, also how do you hide cables in a case where cable management possibility is a pita? answer: stickers! (nonethtless the airflow is not hindered by the cable salade on the bottom :D )

Win11+Ubuntu dual boot ofc

so, he specifically asked for a GPU to play Palworld later ...
i guess he will be ok (1080p high settings ) strangely the FPS limiter set to 60 did not work it seems :laugh:

[WARNING: BLABBERING MOUTH UNLEASHED!!]

BUILD NAME: "THE SILENT BRUTE"

Although i've done a few AMD builds in the past, THE SILENT BRUTE is my first personal AMD rig. I've been on INTEL since the diaper days of yore so some RED in the bag is refreshing.

Over a year ago one of our retired commercial ventures landed me a spare AM4 build which was left in home storage. It was built around a 3900X + X570 + RTX 2070 and sheltered in a beast of a BeQuiet Silent 601 case. A couple of weeks later the 2070 was sold and the rest left in the dark. Not long ago, I picked up a used RTX 3080 just south of a hard negotiated £300’ish (GBP) from a close family friend. The 3080 is in excellent condition, previously used only for gaming at stock settings. Unfortunately, I never got around to making use of the build/card. Perhaps laziness or my already operational 9700K + 2080 TI build was running fine with the FPS counter obscured. That's not the only reason. The AMD build was filthy to its bone, looked like a dust vacuum repository and i couldn't get off my backside to give her a thorough clean. TBF, at the same time, for a few months i was considering putting the build with the card up for sale and then upgrading to a brand spanking new AM5/DDR5/7800X3D platform alongside a RTX 4080/4080S GPU (preferably nV for my ‘dedicated’ GSYNC panel). 40-series upper tier prices since launch have been appalling so upgrading GPUs was scrapped. With that out of the way, a couple of newer titles were demanding some MT-resources over the single threaded inferior 9700K hence it made sense to stick with AM4 with a cost-effective larger than life 5800X3D upgrade. IMO, a solid pairing for a 3080-level card.

so...

cleaning time! I undressed the 601 to her bare bones. Every single part/component removed and the case was taken apart. Literally every screw assembly disassembled, and every nook and cranny attended to with brushes, cotton sticks, toothpicks, electrical blower and a ton of 70% Isopropyl alcohol (unnecessary but got loads to burn). Don't worry the CPU or other sensitive components get the 90%+ quality stuff. Above and beyond for the brand spanking NEW and it's nothing short of the goal.

Bringing AM4 to life, the following upgrades were procured in the last week or 2:

- 5800X3D IN (3900X OUT)

- ALFIII-360 IN (Scythe Mugen 5 OUT)

- WIFI 6E PCIe card

- x5 Arctic P14 PWM 140mm fans (x1 rear, x3 front, x1 under the PSU shroud on the bottom belly for additional intake)

- x2 Arctic F9 PWM 92mm fans (on PSU shroud for intake) yield

- Arctic 10-port PWM fan hub

- Some other purchases: 2x2 KVM switch, DP 1.4+HDMI 2.1 cables and finally venturing into WIFI 6E with a DECO 3-pack mesh system

A couple of previous purchases:

- USED MSI RTX3080 X Trio

- x1 990 Pro 2TB NVME a little overkill for the system drive but purchased two of these a couple of months ago on the cheap from a mates Sammy staff discount / £114 ea.



CASE: At some point i almost succumbed to swapping out the 601 for an obese dual-chamber glassy case and flaunting some RGB. But nahhh! the 601s no-glass modesty, thick noise dampening material to feed the noise tolerances, brawny all-black appearance, great build quality/features and dare i say "a bottom full length dust filter which is effortlessly accessible from the front" did it for me!

Quiet and powerful. I named her "THE SILENT BRUTE".

THE FULL GAMING SETUP:

LOOKING TO PICK UP NEXT:

I fancy having this option available if the preference strays in giving the build some internal exposure. At the moment i have the mobo set to 'stealth mode' (lighting disabled). Still working on disabling the GPU RGB without surrendering to MSI or third-party bloat. This also explains why i opted for a RGB variant of the ALFII 360.

601 Glass Panel.JPG


PERF/THERMALS and keeping things 'WHISPER QUIET'

The big elephant in the room being, on first impressions the case looks massively starved for unobstructed airflow. Well its certainly not as effective as some of the fully meshed/perforated case offerings available on the market. This is by design. The 601 is known for its emphasis on noise reduction, which involves less visible ventilation compared to other cases. This was a little concerning hence the special emphasis on populating all case fan mounts. Also a large AIO on top directly exhausting the CPUs heat outwards. Got a 140mm fan below the PSU shroud sucking air from the base and 2 supported 92mm fans on the PSU shroud to help along. Overall, the results are fantastic:

XMP enabled
5800X3D at stock (will look into undervolting for some added efficiency)
GPU at stock
Fan curves dialed down for the preferred acoustic range
Everything up-to-date (BIOS, Chipset, drivers... Win 11 fresh install, etc)

Ambient temp:
CPU/OCCT Large/Extreme 15 mins: 72c
CPU/OCCT Small/Extreme 8 mins: 90c (expected with this type of unrealistic load designed to push limits)
GPU/Furmark: 1440p 15 mins: 73c

The Furmark test is showing 338W expended and max 98% GPU utilisation with clocks alternating between 1576/1636Mhz. Is this normal?

The OCCT large/Extreme test was showing 4350Mhz across all cores. In normal use, the max i'm seeing is 4450Mhz per one or two cores. Looking at other reports online, i take it this is business as usual?

Its my first time running with AMD, that too with a more sensitive X3D processor. Other than undervolting, any other tips/recommendations?

far from it!

Thats a sweet looking compact build + nice specs!... i fancy this sort of direct air intake from the base to GPU.

I like to move some air too, nice setup :rockout:
These are nothing! I used to have Martin Logan reQuests - a 12" woofer in the bottom of each handling the lows, a 1.5x4.5ft electrostatic panel above that for mids and highs. Oh how I miss them. :(

I have a pair of Mission Argonauts (each has two 8" woofers) backed by 4 12" subwoofers. Needless to say, I like dynamics and power in my music.

that's a bit of a downgrade, indeed o_O

Advantages of Intel Core i7 6700K
  • Includes an integrated GPU Intel HD Graphics 530
Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Has 24576 KB larger L3 cache size
  • More modern manufacturing process – 7 versus 14 nanometers
  • Supports up to 128 GB DDR4-3200 RAM
  • Newer - released 4-years later
  • Has 2 more physical cores
  • Around 13.58 GB/s (40%) higher theoretical memory bandwidth
  • Newer PCI Express version – 4.0
  • 10% faster in a single-core Geekbench v6 test - 1662 vs 1512 points

but knowing you, it was to help your friend and not yourself :D i hope your friend is happy with the R5 3600 (i really liked mine, which was the upgrade from a i5 6600K at the time ;) )

I did also a favor for him 1½yrs back selling my 1080 Ti so yeah, I can do downgrades for helping him. Back then I got a good excuse to get my current 6700 XT :laugh:

Nah, the dude's my best friend and you can see his cat on my posts from the feline thread in the Lounge subforum. :)

Planning to redo the cable, but custom, to remove those PCI-E cable, with 6 and 8 pins on the same :( (see bottom righ) . The CPU 8 pins is kinda short, so I'll need to make a longer one. the 24 pins is long for the distance haha. I made it working cause I sold the other computer! :D

Corsair made the cable individually, not like stick together or in a sleeve liek before.

But no zip-tie, velcro FTW :)

Everything, is... tight fit! haha

both 'previous' and 'now' looks tasty!

I never delved into full custom loops but always fancied it. Curious though, what compelled you to revert back to a stock air cooled GPU and AIO over the CL? The hardware monitoring screen: nice touch!
