[Build Log] Evil-Mobo's What Now build: ? - Page 5

post #41 of 154

Ok so a few updates today. My PPC order of water cooling goodness arrived. I think I'm going to need one more fitting and I'm good there. I also paid Parvum for the custom part they are making me, so now there is no hold up aside from the regular wait for production. Mine will have some tweaks and a custom part to be revealed later so I'd imagine it will take longer than a regular order off of their website. I was also able to get the CPU water block top purchased from EK and it shipped. I am getting a white top for my Supremacy EVO to match the GPU block.

On the PC front, I started over clocking today and I'm hooked! Now I get it lol. I think pretty much my GPU is maxed where it will run stable for now on air and the stock BIOS. I got my CPU running higher as well with ease, stopped here for a while but I will now need to start messing with voltage and the clocks to see how far I can go on air. So my i7 6700K is at 4.6Ghz right now and ran an hour of prime95 with ease. All I did was enable the XMP profile for my RAM to 3200mhz and it is running at that, and change the multiplier to 46 and I was good.

Below are some stock benchmarks:

Fire Strike Extreme:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6337997

Fire Strike Ultra:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6338026

Here are the same benchmarks after over clocking my CPU to 4.6, and my GPU to 1501 CC/3829 MC:

Fire Strike Extreme:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6340199

Fire Strike Ultra:

I have never built a computer or over clocked anything electrical before. It wasn't without some hiccups so far, but it's been fun. I just thought some benchmarks might be fun for everyone to see. I did them in stages: stock, only GPU overclock, GPU & CPU overclock, and then after that I was able to squeeze a little more out of the GPU. It was a lot of fun and excitement to do all of this and see the progress first hand everytime you tweak something. I can't wait now until the build is done and under water to see how much more I can push it. I am anxious to see a comparison to stock numbers vs water cooled and over clocked, and it should be nice to see just what the added cost of water cooling does for performance vs an over clocked but air cooled PC.

My ASIC score according to GPU-Z is 69.6%

Thanks for following along thumb.gif

MSI after burner for the GPU and for the CPU I'm using CPU-Z and Hardware Monitor.

It's probably best to use manual voltage while overclocking your CPU. I haven't worked with Skylake personally, but at least with the last generation the CPU will ask for and get much more than it needs if you don't control it. Some caution should be exercised. You don't want to run your CPU at high voltage on air and get high temps as well because you may damage your gear. For what it's worth... smile.gif

I appreciate it, tomorrow I am starting on manual voltage. But the mother board I have and it's bios have an easy over clocking function and it's highest setting is 4.6 so I think I will be good there. This is a 4.7 CPU from Silicon Lottery. I most likely won't be messing with it much more until it's underwater. The OS is loaded, OC on the GPU and somewhat on the CPU and the desktop is how I like it with the programs I wanted on it. This is exactly what I wanted now I have some time to use it and work out any quirks before water cooling it.

Since you have an idea of where you are go to manual and fine tune it by playing with LLC and voltages. Once your stable there then play with offset / adaptive with Speedstep and C-States enabled. Set your power options in Windows to minimum power to like 5% and max at 100%. That will let your CPU down clock and rest at idle, but still ramp up in voltage / speed when necessary. This is ideal imho.

My 5930k idles at 1500MHz at 1V, but ramps up to 4500MHz at 1.35V. My average core voltage is around a little less than 1.2V this way rather than running it at 1.34V 24/7. Not only does this take the stress off the CPU, but it also let's the system run cooler. Unless you need an extra space heater. tongue.gif

Awesome thanks for the input. I will have some folding questions for you once I have this squared away. thumb.gif

Cool man. I'm a first time water cooler / overclocker too. I'll be looking forward to the rest of your build. cheers.gif

Thanks for the support. I update the original post periodically and did so today to reflect the water cooling parts I purchased and have on hand.

I don't think I saw a reservoir on the list or did I miss it? thinking.gif
