I updated my system but it doesn't look a whole lot differant than it used to because I used RAM and Motherboard from the same series of products and most of my stuff is hidden under GPU blocks or mobo armor.

My new Motherboard with dual M.2 Drives:


New CPU:


System in poor lighting running Prime 95:


LED:


I set voltage on the CPU to 1.38v and pushed all eight cores to 5.3Ghz.
Prime 95 showed a few cores hitting 88C after an hour of running. I played a few games and it seems to run between 60-65C. I might see a few one second spikes to 72C but it's a pretty good chip.

Here is a few intensive scenes from hitman at 4K maxed with an OSD so you can see how it utilizes system hardware.

CPU and GPU are both limited around the same 90FPS in this scene:

CPU limitation:

GPU limitation:


This was the first time doing an upgrade to the system with a full custom loop. It was a pain in the butt. Probably spent 8 hours working on it.

Nice. You seem to be having 3 cards but your system specs say dual 1080 Ti. Am I seeing something wrong?

the_sextein Mar 2, 2019 11:15 PM

Thanks, I must have forgot. It's been updated. It's an older 980TI that I had from a previous SLI setup. I use it for 3D rendering and the occasional phys-x enabled game. I'll probably do the same thing with one of my 1080TI's when I upgrade my cards in the future. Also, A small update to the above. I had to bump the 9900K up to 1.4V to maintain stability. It didn't have much of an impact on temps but a few benchmarks failed after another day of testing. I think that is as far as I'm willing to push it. If I run into trouble in the future then I'll lower it to 5.2Ghz. I'm pretty confident it's good though, all of my games ran fine at 1.38v and the few benchmarks I had problems with seem to have stabilized at 1.4.

the_sextein Mar 3, 2019 04:43 PM

So, I finished up the system. MSI after burner is reporting 10C higher temps than my ASUS motherboard AI software. I downloaded HWmonitor and it matches what the ASUS AI is reporting. So my temps are lower than what was posted on the screen shots above.

I finalized my CPU settings just now. I set the CPU agent voltage to 1.1v and then set the voltage regulation to manual with speed step enabled. This allows the system to alter the voltage based on the CPU speeds which alter when I am not gaming. I then set the lead line voltage to level 6. When it kicks into 8core non AVX mode it uses 1.252v and when it uses AVX 8 core mode it drops down 100Mhz and uses the same 1.252 voltage. It looks like lead line 6 was the key to stability without pushing past 1.38v.

EDIT: Updated this post to reflect what I settled on. V core is down to [email protected] on all cores. Runs pretty stable and temperatures are easier to handle at quiet levels of operation. I decided to just settle for that in the end. Used an offset of 1 for AVX because prime 95 was pushing temps into the 90's. I also managed to increase my RAM from 3600Mhz to 3866MHz without changing anything at all. I boosted the voltage .01 to get it up to 4000Mhz with the original C16 Latency / timings that it had at 3600Mhz.

Yea this is the one room in the house with wood panels.... I hate them and watched to drywall over them but the Mrs. said not to spend money on it.

Do you mean input lag?

Input lag on Televisions made within the last couple of years are very good in 4:4:4 chroma PC mode. It's becoming a non-issue.

As far as pixel response time, the 65" LG C8 OLED that I have my PC plugged into has a pixel response time of 0.01 ms.

UPDATE
 
ALERT
I will be posting pics of some big changes to my systems soon.

Q-Bertratron ->

http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...postcount=6480

has transformed -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzNsOGt3bHk

And is now a Deepcool tristeller CORE i9 9900k with an ASUS ROG WATER COOLED motherboard, 32 Gigahertz of memory and an RTX 2080 Gigabyte video card.

My Corsair Battlefield communications system ->

http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...postcount=6443

Now has an Asus B450 MB (MSI board fried) Corsair memory and a Ryzen 7 2700 OC processor with liquid cooling. AN AMD (AGP-esque) VII card and 1050 Cougar power supply will be added next week. Pics of both will be posted when all work is complete.

F_ck yeh DJ-QBert FTW.

I approve of Q-Bert.


KAC Mar 16, 2019 05:42 AM

32 gigahertz memory? Wtf?

the_sextein Mar 16, 2019 09:36 AM

So I pushed things as hard as I could for fun but I have been messing around with optimization for everyday use. I set my I9 9900K at 5Ghz on all cores and managed a stable overclock at 1.26 VCORE set manually. I was surprised it can run at 5Ghz at that voltage level. I'm using the load line level 6 setting and my RAM has also been pushed from 3600Mhz to 4000Mhz C16-18-18-36 timing. So far it has been very stable.

Here is a picture of CineBench at 5Ghz/1.26 Vcore and maxing out at just 67C.


I used an AVX offset of 1 which will drop the core frequency to 4.9Ghz overclock on all cores when using AVX instructions for creative work. This keeps the AVX power requirements in line with non AVX power requirements.

Here is a picture of the latest version of Prime 95 running a 30 minute AVX enabled torture test at 4.9Ghz overclock on all cores with the previously mentioned 1.26 Vcore. Even though I set the Vcore manually to 1.26, HWmonitor is showing a maximum Vcore of just 1.252 at idle and of course it lowers under load thanks to Vdroop.



It stayed in the 70C range most of the time but had a few cores top out at 81C here and there. It's been really stable at just 1.26 Vcore though. My radiator fans have 3 settings.
Low: 500RPM for everyday use. Below 45C
Medium: 900 RPM for gaming. 46C-69C
High: 1500RPM which only kicks in on stress tests or if one of my pumps fail. 70C+

I'm really happy with the EK water loop I purchased, even though it is a pain to work with when changing out the motherboard. Graphic cards can be switched out pretty easily but a full system overhaul does take some extra work.

specs in button. Really happy with this. the red led from the soundcard is a bit much. might put tape over it :lol:




Megaman Mar 29, 2019 04:26 PM

I taped mine up too. Do it!

KAC Mar 29, 2019 10:20 PM

TurdEye. That a pretty heavy upgrade. Congrats!

You could still wind up with light bleeding out even when they're taped up. I swear Creative managed to find the brightest red LEDs known to man and still used two of them together, so just take some snips, cut them off, and throw them in the trash. It's the only way to be sure. It doesn't affect the card in the least (except for eliminating the blinding red light), and it's not like the card would have any real resale value nowadays anyway.

Fine, but I can guarantee that my Zx has zero chance of ever showing red again. :D

Nope, don't like that one at all. I wanted the old school solid steel tristellar.. it was one of the last ones available for a great price. It was between that and one of those snazzy Cougar cases.
