Thanks, and that's exactly it. I see all these great claims about how the Ryzen series catches up with the 7700k in gaming and all you need is quicker ram... Yeah, well, I'm here to tell you, there's no magical solution for single thread performance.

It does look good. It's gotta be the nicest looking and feeling ram I've ever seen. The heatsink on it feels super premium.


On another note, I've made a mistake...


The cheapest I ever find Fury X's around here is $330 to $350. If you find one for $300, that's a steal. So when I saw this in "like new" condition being sold in box and all, I had to jump on it. I may or may not keep it, but I'm definitely gonna bench with it for a day or two.



EDIT:

And happy holidays to anyone celebrating this weekend biggrin.gif
Enjoy what you got while you got it thumb.gif

Sorry to be quiet on my build thread recently. I'm planning my next step while catching up on the financial front frown.gif

I'm really hoping to start tearing down the shelf this weekend. I'm sold on the idea of a coffee table chillbox. I'll do a sketch up of it at some point, but the general idea would be to have a cofee table where the bottom is the reservoir, then there's an acrylic sheet then the computer sits above the reservoir. So when you look down into it, it looks like the motherboard is floating on the reservoir. Then underneath it, there will be two hose barbs for send and return for an external chiller.

Hopefully understandly, I can't start on this until I have a chilling solution built. I can have a chilling solution that'll hold my CPU at -5c by next week, the problem is that my CPU doesn't see much gain at all from these temps. I had to take it to -40c to get an extra 100MHz over water cooling. So I'm still planning my next plan of attack. Maybe I'll chill my FX-8350.


In the meanwhile, check out my 3-way XFire thumb.gif

What? Ghetto rigged? What are you talking about? biggrin.gif

Well... today is a depressing day. I finally got around to ripping down the chillbox. Well, more specifically the shelves. I kept the chillbox. I think I could reuse it as it is still in pretty good condition.
My Titanium XPOWER motherboard is broken. The PCIe 2.0 slot came off. It took shockingly little force to rip it off. So... more delays...





It's insane for me to think of how much I've invested in hardware since starting into overclocking.

Well solder and plastics do get brittle after heating and cooling often

Investment feels like the right terminology to me lol

i'm a bit new to extreme cooling, only done basic stuff so far, whats the reason you cant use alcohol as the cooling liquid? are the cpu/gpu cooling blocks not full copper?
if so, say i were to machine my own copper cooling blocks, any reason i couldnt go to alcohol based stuff?

Yeah, the GPU waterblocks are acrylic with copper base. The CPU waterblock is copper and acetal. From what I've seen acetal and alcohol play along fine, but alcohol will cause acrylic to crack.
If you have a full copper waterblock, you could absolutely do alcohol.
