    Some context.

    I copied most of the post from our guild forum where we discuss this stuff. We build a lot of computer builders in Tyranny. We have had a running "guild standard build" since 2010 that's been Z68->Z77->Z87 -> Z97->Z170. It's been a kind of $1200 model build that I'm sure you can image (Core i5 K, Z motherboard of the time, the memory of the time, a Geforce GTZ x70, ever larger SSD). Most are Z170 as of late (or previously, Z97). People buy parts, send them to me or somebody else, we build them and send them back. In the guild, I'm the only one with with a X99, which is why I said that.

    Our build is like Unicorn, but with Corsair and MSI parts (I love MSI's UEFI). We put i a NH-D15 or H100i depending what people want. Cases have generally been corsair, but we just switched to the NZXT H440, which I really, really like.

    It's very stable. I read that instability happens when you try and push it past 4.6 and 1.375v. Some apparently do well up to 4.6 and 1.35 iirc.

    Where did I say that?

    Though we do know that the 5820K is a binned CPU, and has a very hard wall that basically you can't get past when you hit it.

    Some of us hit it at 4.3, some at 4.5, I don't really know of any who took it further, sadly.

    New setup in 2 weeks unless I change my mind

    Case- Zalman Z11 Neo
    CPU- AMD FX-6300
    HDD- Western Digital Blue 2TB
    PSU- EVGA 600B Bronze 80 plus
    GPU- Gigabyte GTX 960 2GB.
    RAM- Hyper X Fury Series 8GB 1600 DDR3.
    MOBO- Asus M5A97 R2.0.
    WiFi Card- TP Link TL WDN4800 N900 Pcie card.
    OS- Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.

    And as for thermal compound got this. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0045JCFLY and as for disc drive I'll just reuse my current crappy one. And as for CPU cooler already got a 6 month old 212 evo so might as well stick with it. Tbh might cheapen it a bit and get a quad core and a 950.

    I just finished my newest build and i'm extremely proud of how it turned out to be.

    After getting a job at my parents company i've been working everyday for the past 3 months to get this together.

    Just happy to be back at gaming!

    Specs in my signature.

    Honestly I think I could go a little further... maybe I won the silicon lottery. I'm not an overclocking enthusaist or expert or anything. I've been doing it for many years casually and the routine's the same: find a guide with my mobo/CPU combo that is a "high but safe" overclock that anyone with that chip can hit and gradually step it up (though I dont normally do an 8 hour stability test) until it fails. I mean there are guides online for 4.6GHz / 1.35v overclocks with the 5820, but I'm not going to go that far.

    I'd love a link to the guide you used, if you wouldn't mind! I'd like to see what this chip is actually capable of, but I'm merely the OC leaderboard posterboy, I don't know all the ins and outs of it, especially when it comes to bus speed-tweaking.

    Absolutely. It's this one:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlPlKJfWw5M

    I did all of that, then slowly moved the Voltage and Multiplier up (to test stability) to hit 4.5. I keep the lower values used in the video Vcore = 1.275 and Multiplier (CPU Ratio in the bios) = 34, as a back up. But those are the only differences.

    At around 1:50 he starts to fiddle with the Bus (base is 100, sets it to 125).

    Another good resource: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/...ck-assist.html

    In one of the posts the guy gets 4.4Ghz with a BCLK of 100 and a Ratio of 44 and a Vcore of 1.27V

    From what I've read, these chips are good up to about 1.35 Volts. I'm not gonna try that though.

    Sweet thanks!

    I'll have to figure out how to translate it to my motherboard when the time comes. ^_^

    Yeah the MSI UEFI uses some different terminology (at least in comparison to Asus, Gigabyte and EVGA Motherboards I've owned/work with). Still, I fricken love it.

    A nice side effect from my perspective is the uniformity of it. I build computers for my guild and over the last couple of years, with one exception, it's been all MSIs. Whenever there is a problem (such as one time when I was a little over ambitious with a guildie's overclock, that became unstable in later use), I could walk them through fixing it over the phone just by looking at mine.

    Hell my i7 930c was still working quite well. One of biggest reason to upgrade was that my particular X58 still had a BIOS. UEFIs didnt get big till the next board iirc.

    So i changed my new setup a bit

    Mobo - Asus Z170-DELUXE
    CPU - Intel Core i7 6700K
    CPU Cooler - Corsair H110i
    RAM - HyperX Predator 16GB 3200MHz DDR4
    GPU - EVGA GTX 1070 SC
    PSU - Corsair RM850x
    Case - Corsair Graphite 780T
    Audio - Asus Xonar DX2
    SSD - HyperX Savage 480g SSD x2
    HD - Seagate 3TB External HD

    Sadly my old led lights from my former pc stopped working so ill fix that later and im not that happy about the cable management behind the mobo but im gonna fix that when its not that hot outside and i also still have my old SSD's in my pc that i have to take stuff off.

    Might as well post an update here. Since I've changed a lot of hardware and moved to a new place and stuff.

    In my previous apartment I budgeted exactly 1 meter of wall to my PC setup. As pictured below. Sort of cramped!



    But now, I'm being much nicer to the PC. 140 cm desk:


    It's the stats in sig. A 40-inch screen with 3840x2160 resolution. Eats GPU for breakfast.
    Obsidian 350D
    i7-4790K @ 4.6 GHz
    ASUS Maximus VII Gene Z97 µATX
    32GB DDR3
    MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Gaming X at 2GHz+
    500GB Samsung 840 EVO (no perf. degradation tyvm)
    And some WD Reds striped for more games, video scratch and stuff.
    Not pictured here, but it is connected with a long cable managed HDMI cable to my living room TV. I'm thinking of putting up a monitor on the left wall as well.



    Then we have the bedroom PC.

    It is basically a combo of my old HTPC (not so much used since main PC is connected to the TV, and AppleTV takes care of the rest) and old PC parts.
    2x LG IPS 1920x1080 23" each. Can't get rid of them, they are simply too good.
    i7 2700K @ 4.8 GHz
    Asus Maximus V Gene Z77 µATX
    16GB DDR3
    Geforce GTX 980 Reference
    128GB Samsung 830 Series SSD
    2x WD Caviar Black 1TB striped, again to accommodate for more games and stuff.

    Case is Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV. It's nice to build in but ended up not liking how it looks, it's size (even bigger than the 350D, which is big for micro ATX) and it's essentially a big echo chamber in there. Loud..

    Aaand yees there is Ethernet in the walls and sockets are virtually everywhere Gotta love buildings built around 2004, right before people got lazy and thought of Wi-Fi as all you need.

    Damn Wries, that's beautiful.

    Time to upgrade the speakers, though.

    My house was built in 1970.

    Ty But the speakers of the main rig ARE upgraded Chair is covering the sub. Logitech Z533, mind you I am a far cry from an audio aficionado but.. they sound nice to my casual ears
