You have my +1 fellow X370-F owner!
One thing though, if you can, use two separate 8-pin cables for the GPU instead of this single cable with two 8-pins as this is a Vega card and can draw a lot of current. I'm not saying you are going to have issues but its a better safe than sorry kind of thing.
Also, was there any particular reason you swapped the Trident Zs for the Vengeance RGB RAMs ?
Great build! +1
I think your motherboard is just fine in terms of VRMs as I've seen more than a couple of reviewers recommend it and according to this chart I found on reddit it should be fine even for an overclocked 3800X.
One question though, how are your temperatures and noise levels on your Red Dragon 5700 XT ?
Cool build! +1
I don't know if you are aware of this but Noctua mentions in their manual for the AM4 mounting kit that for coolers that weight more than 700g (incl. the fan), such as the NH-U14S, it is recommended to have them uninstalled prior to transportation... Or you know, they could probably rip-off the socket.
Looks good, you got my +1 ... but more photos and a bit of back story wouldn't hurt.
I think it's an Avengers movie reference.
Great, main reason I'm asking is because I'm curious as to whether or not these anniversary edition 2700X CPUs are worth it over the "regular" ones in terms of max OC.
Wow! Great build! You got my +1 !
Have you noticed any significant improvement in CPU temps with the larger fan? Also, how are the VRM temps when you stress test the 3700X?
Is 4.1 GHz the max you could OC your 2700X ? Also, what's your CPU voltage and LLC level @ 4.1 GHz ?
To be honest I thought this would be the case :P
Cool build but why do I see an ASRock motherboard that is clearly for an Intel CPU?
WOW! That's a beautiful build right there sir! Bravo!
I have one question though, have you had any issues with the VRM temps on the X470-I ?
Great build! I honestly love black builds with blue lighting!
However, since you have high-end hardware, I would suggest at least adding another fan at the front part of the case as intake for better cooling. To be honest, though, the stock fans of the Nano S are not that great in terms of performance so replacing (at least the front one) would be much better cooling wise.
Also, why do you say you were swearing at the parts and your self? Most of them look like pretty good choices.
To be honest I was originally looking at the BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4 but after seeing some reviews I changed my mind because according to some stress test results I saw it has similar performance to the stock 2700X cooler.
Gorgeous build! +1 I really like the retrowave/cyberpunk theme of your build, even thought I have my build's lighting set to blue LOL.
Can't wait to see your build when you do that custom water loop!
Well, that seems like a good sign for your temps.
That is one good lookin' build you have there! +1
Great build! Looks great! +1
Only thing I would change if I were you is set the RAM lighting color to red/white as well.
Just out of curiosity, what monitor do you have and how does your R9 390 perform on gaming?
Great build! I honestly think that the X470-I is the best looking m-ITX motherboard. +1
How are the motherboard's VRM temps under load?
Also, did you use a USB drive as a GPU support bracket?
Thanks! I spent a couple of hours to make it as clean as I could.
That's nice to hear. Thank you for your answer!
That is one fine looking build! +1
I must admit I spent a couple of minutes going through the link in your build description and your completed builds' photos until I found the barcode sticker... :P
Are the Corsair ML120 fans making a clicking noise at low RPM as many say?
So, after quite some research I found this video and the sound that is heard for the 1st half of the video is very close to what I hear. So it may be coil whine...
Also, this is how the fan sounds like on low loads if I disable the Hybrid Mode.
Quality components, eh?
Anyway, thank you for your input and your eagerness to help me! :D
Thank you very much!
I must admit I like it too!
Thanks a lot!
Thank you for your kind words!
I know that SeaSonic is among the best but the issue I'm facing is pretty hard to spot since the noise the fan produces is noticeable only if you have the hybrid mode OFF and most likely on a specific range of RPM since I can't hear it all the time. I hear some electric clicks coming from it while the PC is ON but I suppose this is normal?
Thank you for the +1 ! :)
I think they are EKWB's ZMT.
However, I think you are not utilizing all 4 RAM channels your CPU and motherboard can offer due to your RAM configuration. After some research I found the motherboard's user manual on ASUS's website. If you go to section "1.1.4 System Memory" you can see that the recommended configuration for 4 RAM sticks is placing the RAM sticks in slots DIMM_A1, DIMM_B1, DIMM_C1 and DIMM_D1.
Great build! A few more pics would be welcome! +1
Amazing build! +1 I love the way you have routed the tubing and that tiny bio-hazard symbol. If I were you I'd stick to the blue/UV lighting theme you have on the 1st photo.
One question though, was there any specific reason you went with an i7-6700K instead of something newer? (e.g. thermal limitation of the loop, no need for more power, already had it etc.)
*looks at crossfired R9 295X2s*
*smashes the click button on that +1*
Awesome build! I love the colors and the whole retro-wave aesthetic! +1
I have a similar wallpaper :P
Well then I owe you an apology for accusing you of ripping that guy off.
Your CPU and MB temps look good.
As for the GPU temp/noise, your problem is that the GPU is starved from air due to the PSU location and the fans have to work harder (at higher RPM). The ideal solution would be to change the PSU to an SFX form factor one and get an ATX to SFX adaptor to be able to mount it on your case. Alternatively, you would have to either change the GPU to one with more fans.
Also, tweaking the fan curves of the case fans and the GPU fan is what you most certainly have to do in order to achieve some balance between noise and cooling.
Thank you for replying!
I did a bit of research and I couldn't find anything regarding what these temperatures refer to but someone said that HWMonitor may not be reading correctly the thermistors and you get readings like that constant 113o C on TMPIN6. They also said that ASRock has its own software for temperature reading and such things called F Tuning or something like that. So, if you have some time to waste you could look into it and post the outcome here. Anyway, thank you for your time :)
Cool build! +1
How are the motherboard's VRM temperatures when you load the CPU to 100% usage?
Well, I'd be bored to do that too! haha
Honestly speaking I don't remember which photos your build had when I first saw it 4 months ago but these are great! Have fun with it!!
Awesome build! +1 However, why is the top fan from the GPU radiator missing?
That last photo is truly majestic! +1 for your awesome build!
However, if I were you I would ditch the RGB theme and turn all the lights blue/teal like the RAM LEDs on the last photo.
I think 12 minutes is not enough for any AIO / water loop. Try running it for at least half an hour. However, it would be ideal to let the stress test run until the temperature doesn't fluctuate at all.
Great build! +1
However, a photo without the window side-panel and from a distance where you can see the whole interior of the PC would be nice.
Ohhh ok. Now it makes sense... Anyway, you got my +1 on this one too!
From my understanding, getting featured does have to do with the description too but it's not the most important factor...
Great build but why repost it with a slightly different name even though it has the exact same parts?
Oh, ok. Why don't you upload a photo of the updated build?
Are you sure your RAM isn't the Corsair Vengeance LPX ?
WOW!!! Amazing build! I've been waiting for someone to build with this motherboard in this case and I can say it looks as awesome as I've expected. +1
More pics please! Anyway, it looks great +1
