Here's hoping this CPU doesn't degrade. What's your Vcore?
It should be in A1 and B1. You're running single channel right now.
I would not run above stock settings on that mobo. VRM gets toasty for a 12 core. Would highly recommend strong airflow.
What's that STRIX GPU at the end for testing? It's Pascal since it's missing the NVLink connection.
This is a pretty good Tech YES City special! Unironically too.
If you're able to get a Rev 1.1 Gigabyte board, you can try for Xeon V2 CPUs. The E5-1680 V2 is gaining popularity.
LOL, Threadripper 3970X costs almost as much as a TITAN RTX.
Actually, yes on Unreal Engine without multithreaded rendering. (which is pretty common)
Except for Unreal Engine without multithreaded rendering... Trust me, UE4 without multithreaded rendering + heavy PostFX is single core murder.
Yikes, push-push on the rad wouldn't create any airflow at all.
How many cats per second?
It seems all the fans are exhausting with no intake. Maybe flip the radiator fans to be intake?
As Bryan from Tech YES City says, with these older X58 systems, be sure to turn off all the Spectre and Meltdown mitigations to get good performance. He recommends the tool from Steve Gibson of GRC.
Well, that's where we differ. I need a mild OC that lasts because I've blown up way too many E5-1660s that I don't have the money to experiment anymore.
You do you.
Interesting setup. In Windows you can install Precision X and set both cards to K-Boost.
Yes, load should be no more than 1.35v.
Idle being higher than load allows FAR better low load stability because that is an Ivy Bridge-E/EP trait. At lower amperage, higher voltage does not damage the chip if kept cool. If the idle voltage is too close to the load voltage, over time with electromigration, you will crash and BSOD while completely idle on the desktop. With idle higher than load, you can avoid this situation.
My previous 4960X crashed and BSODed on idle if the voltage between load and idle was not different on an aggressive LLC. There could be medium load situations that also present stability issues (Gaming with a game that uses all threads) and that can happen as well with the effects of electromigration.
Yeah, E-die is a really good kit for 4x8GB or 4x16GB high density setups, due to less IMC strain.
Too much LLC (dropping a ton of voltage on load) does introduce instability, but the load voltage is where you want to be stable. 1.39 is where you want your highest idle to ideally be, because with C-states disabled, 1.4+ idle could still be slightly dangerous. Ideally you want to droop 0.3-0.4v, as more droop will introduce instability.
Because of this, you might want to back down to 4.7 or 4.6Ghz.
Jak and Daxter reference?
Idle should be higher than load, because high voltage and low current with proper cooling doesn't damage the chip. Your load voltage should droop about the same amount as it rises right now, so invert the voltages with 1.334V load and 1.368v idle, and increase as needed.
An LLC setting which boosts voltage on load is NOT good for 24/7 stability. You ideally want some droop so that you can avoid electromigration. I burned up 4 E5-1660 Xeons with electromigration because of aggressive LLC.
I own a Gigabyte X79S-UP5 and speak from experience.
Really curious how this performs in Star Citizen.
Lucky. But I know not all X99 boards have had consistent BIOS updates for microcode.
Do you have issues with the updated Intel microcode screwing with the multiplier for overclocks?
Yup, that's true.
A used Titan V might be worth the investment if HBM on Nvidia is important to your ML algorithms.
I'm surprised Jayztwocents hasn't seen this, considering he's a roadie...
How did this get overlooked? The neon vibes this build is giving are worth a feature!
LOL, then the next step would be cable combs for the sleeved PSU cables. :P
You excited about Threadripper 3000? Judging by your workload I think those kinds of workloads would require that many cores for complex designs.
Would the Radeon VII have done any better for ML and Deep Learning with it's HBM memory?
Also, I just noticed that PS/2 Keyboard.
So clean. This kind of build is where the Asrock X570 Aqua board would fit in perfectly.
Make sure you use the GRC Spectre and Meltdown tool to turn off Spectre and Meltdown mitigations to get your performance back. Those mitigations took a HUGE hit on these older CPUs.
Very good choice on the Dark Rock Pro 4, as it is better suited to the higher thermal density of these 7nm chips.
Yup, Nvidia decided to never do any drivers for Mojave and up, despite the modular Mac Pro coming soon.
The last Nvidia driver for High Sierra also has severe bugs on Pascal from my recollection.
Do watch out for that Enermax cooler failing over time. In the case that happens, you may be better served by a Dark Rock Pro TR4.
I think there are distro plate front panels for the O11 Dynamic, but was this choice of distro plate because of the frosted look of it?
I can also understand if you wanted to keep all the glass panels and not replace the front glass panel with a distro plate.
In the very least the bottom should be all intakes, with lower RPM on the top exhausts.
Or put the 360 rad on the top of the case and make the side intake.
Wouldn't mind putting in a Hydro Copper plate for that 1080 Ti SC2, but a great loop nonetheless.
That is really good cable management for the ENTIRE setup! Well done!
Yes, but that's pretty much the limit for 80 Plus Bronze. You can load 80 Plus Platinum a lot more. Even a SF600 with a ATX adapter plate is better than 80 Plus Bronze.
Nice touch with the Gamers Nexus crystal.
Yikes. Go for a EVGA 650 P2 if that's the case. Don't want you damaging your hardware by overworking the PSU.
More pics of the inside? Since the PSU is non-modular, I'm wondering about the cable management in that ITX form factor.
Did you remember to turn off Armoury Crate? That crap auto-installs even if you have a clean installation USB of Windows 10.
The UEFI on the card might be too new for the system. It's happened before. Radeon VIIs don't boot on P55 systems from my recollection.
Just be careful upgrading GPUs as the Define C doesn't have much room with a AIO in the front like that. Shortest card I know of right now is the PowerColor 5700/5700 XT Red Dragon, but upgrade to Navi at your own risk as Mesa support for Navi is still a little flaky.
Radeon VII definitely won't fit with the AIO.
How did this not get a feature? This is an excellent single threaded clock speed to GPU combo! I don't imagine any game would choke on this machine not unless the actual game is unoptimized...
How loud does the Radeon VII get in gaming? If it does get loud, I've heard of people modding their VIIs with the Morpheus II cooler and 2 120mm Noctuas, then it becomes whisper silent.
A new bug popped up where soft reboots turn into failed coldboots. You can fix that by making the MemCadBusClkDrvStren at 20ohms and ProcODT at 60ohms or 53.3ohms. Was able to properly reboot with these settings applied.
Are you planning an upgrade on the CPU? 1000W for the PSU hints at upgrade plans.
Yeah, and it's gonna get even better with the ABBA AGESA fix.
