[Build Log] Antec ISK 110: Tinier than Tiny - Page 4

post #31 of 130
i just bought a 5800k and took some power readings, at stock clocks you still want and need to undervolt it if you are to use it with a 150w PSU. my power meter is showing that its hovering around 160w in bios screens and thats without any real load.

on the bright side if you are willing to sacrifice a fair amount of ghz you can just run the 5800k on the stock PSU bust power figures are still uncomfortably high. running 3dmark vantage shows power figures around 80-100w after dropping clocks to 2.6ghz and 3.4ghz turbo @ 1v normal load draws around 60w.

with this i can assume that even the 5700 needs a PSU swap if you want it to run optimally. other users have reported that with a 5700 on stock PSU will shut down under heavy load and requires undervolting

note that is is at the wall figures for a full system load of the bare minimal components of 1 SSD and 2 sticks of 1866mhz ram

The easier and better alternative for those who want more CPU processing power and don't game as much is simply to get an i5-3570K like I used in the build. No aftermarket pico-PSU required. Heck, no undervolting or underclocking required even on the stock PSU smile.gif My client has been running this system for almost a month now without any issues.

I have a feeling that most people looking into a tiny system like this aren't going to be doing heavy gaming, so an Intel CPU would not only end up being much faster than an AMD chip, but cheaper as well once you factor in the cost of the Pico-PSU and power brick that is needed to run an AMD Trinity chip in this case.

And HD 4000 graphics in Ivy Bridge can certainly handle a fair bit of gaming at a medium resolution like 1280x800. For everything else, like photo or video editing, an Ivy Bridge i5/i7 would definitely be preferable over any AMD chip.

actually i got it with full intention of gaming hence the decision over the i3 3225 (which I've already got a H67 board for) and it would be my main gaming/daily rig and it should perform better then my m11xR3. Idea is that i want a rig that i a fit in a tiny messenger bag that i can carry with me everywhere like a laptop

i have another ISK for an i7 3770 that would be use as a portable VM lab white box, my SG08 would be a gaming VM

Today i bought z77n-wifi,3570k,2x4gb gskill 1600mhz ..Gonna use a TEAM S2 120gb ssd with it (From old rig).. and i am thinking about antec isk-100...But i am not sure about the 90w psu..Will it be enough for using as htpc..?And can we change only the adapter from 90w to 120w ?

Mine is working fine with a 3570K, no underclocking and no undervolting.

It should be fine for you as well, but if for some reason your motherboard consumes more power than mine (it might, Z77 vs H61), you can undervolt the CPU a bit and it should be fine.

If you wanted to overclock the CPU, you can switch to a PicoPSU-120 or 150.

My 80W PicoPSU is powering my A10-5700 with the IGP at 860MHz and a slight undervolt (haven't tweaked much, figure I could push the IGP even further and keep the thermal envelope), gaming without a problem. And the PicoPSU barely gets warm, with absolutely zero airflow. I'm going to put a small fan besides it just for the sake of it though.

Worst case scenerio will be the system not boot or shut down while running,right?İt will not fry someting i suppose smile.gif..İf it will not work out,i will order a pico psu 120 because i just get the information that z77n-wifi has no voltage control..So underclock will not be an option biggrin.gif

i5 3570k and isk 100 work like a charm..90watt and 77tdp works..smile.gif
The only thing bothers me is I cant fit the stock cooler in the case because side panel of isk 100 and isk 110 is different..Rather than stock cooler i had to use akasa low profile cpu cooler ..

i had mine modded to fit with stock cooler, sawed off the fan on the stock HSF then flipped the side panel mesh so the fan blows directly ontop of it.
later on i opped to replace the stock antec side fan with a 120mm slim scythe


you could try to use the xigmatec preaton as well like i've done for my A10-5800k build

That Xigmatek cooler looks quite nice!
