[Build log] Node 304 + Silver Arrow - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Sorry for Confusion,my question is actually very simple do you think you have extra 2mm of space between your radiator and case exhaust fan?

Struggling with my overclock...

Seems fine at 4.2GHz on -0.015V offset, sits at around 70-75'C in linpack and CPU-Z says 1.16V, but increasing to 4.3 seems to ruin everything - crashing at +0.015 offset and 1.216 in CPU-Z... any suggestions?

edit: just kidding WHEA errors... bumping up to -0.01

Were you able to put hard drive cage back in?

Yes but it presses up against the graphics card power connector

Couldn't get any higher than 4.2 without temps getting obscene and garbage voltages and I'm getting ready to RMA my graphics card for the second time (fan is obscene...). Going to try a galaxy card because their rep here was representing in my other thread pretty hard.

On the bright side I had no problems at all carrying it down the stairs when I left uni and SSDs are super fun.

mikejsavage, thanks for your photos! Actually your build log convinced me to build something very similar for my new home PC (w/o video, don't need it for photos). Could you answer several questions?

1. RAM clearance with SilverArrow - is there any space above the first RAM slot? Can I fit memory module with radiator or only low-profile ones? Need 2x8GB and they all seem to have medium or tall heatsinks.


2. Can I put HDD in front of SilverArrow, is there sufficient space for SATA-cable? Or only for L-shaped? (will put there 2x2.5" and 2x3.5" drives)

3. How quiet is the system?I'm looking at SilverArrow (or Noctua NH-D14,or Phanteks PH-TC14. Not sure about Thermalright 140mm True Spirit) to run it on low revs in near silent mode.

4. Are you still pleased with the system overall and Node304/SilverArrow/motherboard particularly? smile.gif

1: You def won't fit huge ram like that. A dimm with an exposed pcb MIGHT go in with the chips touching the heatsink blades.

2: I have a normal SATA cable on an SSD infront of the silver arrow right now. I'd upload a photo but I'm too garbage at this camera business to take one that close where you can see anything so you'll just have to take my word :<<br />
I think a HDD might fit with a straight cable if you put it in the middle where the heatsink gets thinner but it would be super tight if it did go.

3: The case itself is inaudible. The silver arrow makes a kind of deep hum but it's not so bad.

The GTX 650 is totally worthless and sounds like a hair drier on min fan speed to the point that I returned it as faulty then the replacement was just as obnoxious and now if I want a replacement I have to ship it to munich or some crap so ugh...

4: I feel like the more expensive motherboard/heatsink wasn't worth it for such a small overclock (I was hoping for 4.4/4.5), the graphics card being so loud is annoying and I don't really notice the SSD since I spend all my time in terminals but other than that I'm happy with it.

I personally would have gone with a liquid cooling solution for more space inside the case. As well as a Bitfenix Prodigy because it has handles and you can carry it up/down your stairs when needed smile.gif
