X99 Build - Mid-High Range MicroATX

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps. Just wanting to show off my new build. I haven't put a computer together in a very long time (since 2007). I knew for a while the old Core 2 Quad build needs an update. Ended up putting something all-new together from scratch.

Current Specs:

Case: Corsair Obsidian 350D
PSU: Corsair AX760i 760 Watt Digital PSU
CPU: Intel Core i7-5820k (@ 4.5 GHz / 1.3v)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H110 + 2x Noctua NF-A14 IndustrialPPC 2000RPM fans in push config
Motherboard: eVGA X99 Micro
Memory: 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400
GPU: eVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC
Storage: 2x Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD's (RAID0 Configuration)
Case Fans: 2x Corsair SP140 Intake | Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition Rear Exhaust



*NOTE: The Xonar Essence is no longer there. With it being gone, I was able to clean up the cable management




Temperature averages in a 71 degree room:

CPU @ 4.5 GHz / 1.3v
Idle: 24 C
Load (AIDA64): 56-58 C
Load (Prime95 SmallFFT): 72-74 C

GPU Idle: 35 C
GPU Load (FurMark): 76 C
GPU Load (FurMark @ 1330 MHz): 78-79 C

Firestrike:
11522
The GPU was overclocked to 1290 MHz during this test. At stock speeds, the score averages at ~10.5k

CrystalDisk:


Future Plans

Will be getting a new monitor soon. Very likely to be 27" 1440p. If the GTX 970 has problems running it, I'll pick up a second one for SLI.

I eventually want to have a custom watercooling setup to keep things even cooler and quieter for more stable overclocking. I've actually never done that before but I've been doing a lot of research. Here's what I have planned as far as that's concerned. Any advice here is welcome:

Radiator: XSPC EX280 280mm (mounted at the top w/ the Noctua fans in push config)
CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm
GPU Block(s): EK FC970 GTX ACX Acetal+Nickel | EK FC970 GTX ACX Backplate
Reservoir/Pump: XSPC Photon 170 + D5 Vario Pump
Fittings: XSPC Black Chrome Compression Fittings (G1/4" | 1/2" ID | 3/4" OD)

Let me know what you guys think. thumb.gif

looks nice to me biggrin.gif
looking forward to see u around in the clubs.
post ur rig , post ur room.
benchmarking clubs (unigine haven , valley , and 4ghz maybe 5ghz club?)


it is too late . but my preference would be to get single ssd instead of 2 , and put that extra money on a cpu or gpu.
and if u had planned for custom water cooling before hand , then should have picked a water cooler that supports adding radiators to it . like swiftech H320 or H220 etc..

Thanks! I'll try my best to post around. Seems like a nice community so far.

I did want a Swiftech AIO unit initially but they are/were super hard to come by. I settled with the biggest flippin' radiator I could fit into this tiny case. smile.gif
