Hello all! :D I have just registered MOD ZOO! The theme for this time is "Cosmic Dust". Yes, change the project title! :lol: I've tried to challenge the new spray painting. It's like a cosmos... B) I'm already getting parts and putting them together. I plan to make a mini-ITX water cooled system. I have wanted to build a mini-ITX water cooled system for quite some time! Special Thanks to the sponsors! Fractal Design MSI nanoxia I wish to express my appreciation!! -System- CASE: Fractal Design CORE500 PSU: Fractal Design Edison M 550W CPU: Core i5-6500(Skylake) MB: MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC VGA: MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC V1 RAM: G.Skill DDR4-2400 Dual Channel Ripjaws V Steel Blue 16GB SSD: OCZ Trion 100 SSD 240GB HDD: Seagate ST4000DM000 4TB See you later :D
I've been doing a lot of testing lately – now for me a PC not only has to look good but it has to perform well (as a rule I normally build from the components out tailoring the case to the needs of the hardware); Haswell has always had a reputation of being a heat hound, I'm one of the lucky ones that possess a CPU in the form of my 4690K that doesn't do to badly in that department. With the concept of a future build in mind – this will be small form factor, overclocked, an energy efficient general purpose come gaming rig with some graphical cojones and a decent onboard audio capability (tall order I know and did I also mention I wanted it to run virtually silently?) - I set about reaching an overclock compromise between performance and an energy efficient voltage for my own needs. I decided I wanted my overclock to be a nice round 4.4GHz, only 4.4GHz you may ask - 4.4Ghz in my hands on experience offers the perfect balance between efficiency and performance, on paper it equates to a 25.9% boost over stock speeds. I achieved the overclock I wanted after some trial and error at 1.132V Now time to test it - For stress testing I use Intel BurnTest, BurnTest will stress both the overclock and memory far in excess of anything you or I will ever throw at a CPU. A sedate 30 loop pass at Standard level for openers. Followed by another 30 loop pass at Maximum. PASS Now 90 minutes of OCCT 4.4.1, I use the Large Data Set Test Mode to flush out the likelihood of errors under full load. PASS And finally to see how it performs - Very happy with that :D A final note, you may be looking at the temps throughout this thinking what's to shout about? Well when you consider I've used an air cooler utilizing the silent fan profile of the AsRock Z87M OC Formula and it runs silently – it becomes apparent why I'm so pleased ;)
Recently I had an i5 4690K dumped in my lap, to clarify I had a client change spec on me so at the time my thoughts were great I’ve been stiffed with yet another unwanted CPU… If you look around you’ll see the 4690K hasn’t had the best of reception from the tech media, if anything it’s kinda been left with the tag of the fat chick every stunner seems to come equipped with (the type that always says thank you in the morning). Undeterred by this I decided to have a wee play and see what was what - I set myself a goal of a 4.8GHz overclock, this was achieved with 1.302V A nice respectable CPCBS score was also achieved B) Time for some some OCCT love Temps are good IntelBurnTest Good timings Some CINEBENCH R15.0 Not bad And lastly some benches with my SC 780 for good measure So in summing up... I'll be keeping this one :D
