[Build Log] Muzzle Flash - Page 26  

post #251 of 404
Thread Starter 
No real build updates to post, I've mainly been working on software and overclocking over the past couple of days. Things at work have been nuts, so sneaking off to the back to bend metal, paint, etc hasn't really been an option.

I had some issues when I pulled the 2 EVGA GTX580 video cards out of "The Betty" and moved them over to this build. Seems my Linux partition didn't like the swap from the single EVGA GTX560Ti card I had in there over to the dual GTX580s. After some messing around, I got Linux to boot up with setting a "nomodeset" flag on the grub boot options. Then once I got booted up, a quick drop to the terminal for a "sudo update-grub" was all it took to get Ubuntu 12.10 working again.

I then dropped the old GTX560Ti into the wife's computer. Now she is running a pair of them and her 2500K is very happy. Temps are a little high when Folding (airflow in that HAF 912 case with SLi'd GTX560Ti's is pretty bad, so I strapped a spare AP-14 fan to the card cage and got it blowing directly into the edge of the card over the heat sink. That dropped the temps by like 5C, so they both are back under 80C (78C on one and 64C on the card that is at the end of the motherboard where it can get more air).

Then I dropped an AMD 6950 video card into "The Betty" and got her up and running again. Her fall from water cooling grace is making me sad. I don't know if I will convert her back to air and part her out her water cooling components or what. But she is sitting in a corner now, running F@H.

Once I got "The Betty" back up and running, I pulled off all my old files, emails, movies, music, etc and transferred everything over to "Muzzle Flash". So now I am totally up and running her this rig and so far, VERY happy with how quiet she is and how well she is performing. Of course, that now means it's time to push the overclocking!

After some reading, BIOS tweaking, and several failed attempts. I think I got the the 4.7GHz sweet spot. Seems I can lower my Vcore voltage to 1.310V and do an Intel Burn Test without issue (1.300V failed) and the temps aren't too bad at all, 78-83C under load and 34-35C at idle.





Folding also seems fairly stable at the 4.7GHz mark, no glitches, and temps are real low (72-77C after 35 minutes ... It's only at 87.9% load since I only fold on 6 threads because I also fold on 2 video cards at the same time, their temps are a very chilly 41C and 44C respectively).




I think I'll run this for 24 hours, then see about bumping it up 100MHz at a time. Who knows, maybe I can Fold at 4.9GHz and stay under 80C or 5.0GHz at under 85C. THAT would be sweet.

I'm never quite sure anymore which is more fun, building them or playing with them wink.gif

Looking nice,

Thank you.

As far as which is more fun ... well, for me, that all depends in my mood at the time. That is why I usually have more than 1 project going at the same time. That way, when I get tired of building on one, I can always play on the other ... no matter how torn up my build machine is. biggrin.gif

Well, at really low Vcore setting (1.310) for 4.7GHz, it only lasted about 7 hours before locking up. Even bumping it up to 1.320V it locked up after another 5 hours.

Time to bump the Vcore up to 1.350V (still well below the Intel max of 1.52V) and see how it likes running the Intel Burn Test at 100 times instead of the default 10 times. biggrin.gif

Nothing major to report today. I've mainly been working on getting things stable on the overclock for the past couple days.

I did place an order for "Orange Pastel" from Mayhem's store today for 3 bottles of the 250ml concentrate. Most likely that will take 1-2 weeks to be delivered.

I also placed an order with Sidewinder for a couple Bitspower Silver Shining Rotary Mini Snake-Sytle Adapters and a 25mm Silver Shining G1/4 Male to Female Extender, and 2 XSPC LCD Temperature Sensors in Orange Backlight.



One will be hooked to my water temperature sensor and the other used to measure ambient air temps.

I'm debating where to mount these. I could cut out two mounting holes on one of the front 5.25" bay covers, but I'm also thinking about maybe making a little enclosure to mount them on top the power supply cover to hide the wires and display them inside the case itself, though the side window.

[Edit]

Thoughts on something like this?

You could go for one of these from Sidewinder.

 

XSPC 5.25in. LCD Bay Temperature Sensor Frame

 

Or one of these from PerformancePCS.

 

Phobya Front Faceplate - 2 Displays - Black

 

I like the PCS version.

But what I want to see is how you convert the XSPC temp sensor to monitor your water temperatures.

I just might do the same in a slightly different color.

 

Added content:

 

I've figured out how I'm going attach my G1/4" temp sensor to a XSPC temp sensor.

Below is an image of a broken 3-pin fan extension cable with my G1/4" temp sensor connector attached to two of the pins.

I'm going to solder my XSPC temp sensor wires to those two pins an use some sleeving to protect it.

That's a great idea. I was going to use a male Berg connector from work myself, but in a pinch (ie if there aren't any laying around), I might do what you did. Heaven knows I have lots of extra 3-pin connectors laying around from old fans.

Been under the weather a bit (and haven't been in the office all week), so not much progress lately.

I did, however, do a little work on the front I/O panel from the Switch 810. I am basically done the I/O pane sleeving, but have to do 1 more cable on it. I have the sleeve on the last cable, but need to get a little bigger heat shrink from the office tomorrow, then I will be done with it and put it back in.

Two of the cables I left bare (the SATA power wire for the rear LED, and the wire to the rear LED). They will never be seen, and were going to be too much of a pain to sleeve anyway.

The one cable that I wish I could figure out a good way to sleeve would be the 2 cables that go into 1 for the USB 3.0 connector. Even with the wider MDPC SATA orange sleeve, getting it on it just a royal pain. I tore up a bunch of sleeve trying, so I think I'll just leave it bare. Even searching on Lutro0 words of wisdom yielded nothing but "Ah, yea these ones are a bit of a pain. Long story its a long process." frown.gif

Anyway, here is an "almost done" picture.

I do believe that cpachris in his BBBB build sleeved a double into 1 usb 3.0 connector

Not sure if this is the same but here it is
