Yes it does, and yes i had toyed with that idea, but we'll see.
I got the system up and running today and did some gaming, god i have missed my GTX 970 and 4790K
I play some World of Warships and the cpu just got 60*c (just stock at 4,4 to 4,5 ghz) and the GPU was 37*c avg. in game and peaked at 41*c (OC'ed to 1566 mhz), the idle water temp is 25*c and and ingame load is 30-31*c, but keep in mind i have the fans on a low noise profile, the push fans the 360 in the front is running bellow 45% so i have much more potential left in the system, but i'm after a quiet rig
All the fan profiles are set up to run of the water temperature using the watertemp sensor, this way i avoid those CPU on/off fan speed up's.
The must annoying sound in my system is/was my old 1 TB WD Black HDD, it runs at 7200 RPM constantly so it is loud, and the reading head is very noticeable so i unpluged it, as i don't really need it as i have a 500 and 250 GB SSD in the system so plenty of space for games etc. and i could just a external harddisk for when i need the mass storage which i don't often.
The pump has a nice deep humming sound so it is not annoying to listen to, but i might turn it down abit as i don't need 100% pump speed at idle.
Sorry for the lag of pictures i completely forgot about taking some, as the build neared it's end, but i'll take some soon, but have to re-install Win 8.1 Pro and down the beta for The Crew Wildrun, so i could be a few days before i over my need for games
I have more or less lived of my laptop, which is snappy enough, but the dualcore I7 and the 4600 Intel onboard has its limitations when it comes to games, but for everyday use it is dare i say it on pair with my desktop
Do you know of any good benchmark i should try out to stess the CPU/GPU ?
Owh and as a after thought:
Why the hell to PSU manufacturers thing 4 molex connectors is enough... i need alot more as the LED lighting need 3-5 more molex power connectors.Edited by Bear304 - 10/13/15 at 3:16pm
