Just completed some upgrades on my editing PC and juggling parts around various PC's in the house. Got a bargain case in Maplins closing down sale so made it a bit more showy than I normally would.
Corsair 460X RGB Case
AsRock Z370 Pro 4 Motherboard
Intel I7-8700 CPU
16GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz (will double this if/when prices drop a bit)
Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 Cooler, Fan has been replaced with a Corsair SP120RGB
And salvaged from the PC it has replaced:
Palit GeForce GTX 960 OC
Crucial MX500 250GB SSD
Crucial M500 240GB SSD
Western Digital Red 3TB
Samsung HD103 1TB
Samsung M9T 2TB 2.5"
Cooler Master Silent Pro M 600W
Motherboard has two Ultra M.2 Sockets which will be populated in time to replace a couple of the other drives but I'm in no rush to do this as I'm noticing a marked improvement on the I5-2500K system it replaces.
Few upgrades over the past month.
Graphics card has been replaced with an Asus 1070TI
Memory has been replaced with two 16GB sticks of Ballistix Sport 3000MHz DDR4
512GB Samsung 970 EVO M2 added
Oculus Rift added just for the hell of it
And replaced my Dell U2715H with an Asus Predator X34
And a few gumtree ads placed to try and recover a small % of what was spent.
1.32v . I’m using a dark rock pro 3 set to silent and have delidded the chip, it still gets warm (80c) as I have the fans on so low but it’s never throttled back so the cooler keeps it below whatever Kaby throttled at.
I have 32gb of 3000 ddr4 set to xmp. I don’t understand ram oc at all but I would like to as if I leave xmp off temps are much lower and I believe setting a manual ram oc wouldn’t raise temps as high as xmp.
