No world! You put YOUR hands up!
my current rig sucks. Im getting a new one soon.
My new PC is going to be a
Case BitFenix Colossus
Core i7 3770k
HDD 120g SSD and 1 TB Sata
GFX Nvidia 680 gtx 2gb (would love a 690 but they are $1000 on its own... ouch!)
Still saving up to get it
as for looks of the rig , for a first rig im very pleased about it and have learned allot allong the way. (looking at you non modulair PSU!/ HAF case )
How did that improve across the cores Shroudster? My temps are like this : core 1 = 71 c max core 2 = 90 c max, would it help on even them out? I guess theres not much thermal paste across all cores?
Skylake & Maxwell gaming build 2015
6700K 4.7GHz | H100i GTX | Asus Z170 Maximus Viii Gene | Carbide Air 240 | Corsair LPX 16GB | GTX 980 Gaming G1 |
Samsung 850 EVO | Corsair RM750i | Razer BW Chroma - Razer Deathadder Chroma | AOC 24 G-Sync 144Hz |
first attempt my temps were improving but still big core difference, turned out i missed a small spot which caused my 2nd core to run way hotter.
so far my understanding of it is that you need just the right amount of paste. (however too much isn't that bad either, saw a ridiculious example of a full tube of noctua paste only gave a +5 degrees result vs good application)
if core temps are still not more equal then it is time for lapping. (only did it a little due to not having fine enough sanding paper)
Here is prolly the last pic ill post of mine, made some changes and they should be the last ones. Got a new asus soundcard, put my platinum ram in and just worked on tidying things up a bit more.
3570k @ 4.6 w/ h100i

really nice and tidy build, however, are all the fans exhausts ?, if so, id have more fans being intakes then outtakes, less dust build up, even using filters, massive positive pressure is a must, keeps the insides cleaner for longer
Just got everything set up and I couldn't be more happy with it! I did the speaker wiring/drywall patching/painting my self but I still need to pick up a bunch of smaller HDMI cables to get everything a little more clean.
