Description

Started out with an obsession for ITX builds. I live remotely so a number of itx cases I tried ordering were simply refused due to shipping constraints. Went with the 1700 with plans to throw a 3900x or 3950x but the wait has been too long. A 3700x and an MSI 2070 on the way now, just happy to have the build together. I spent a lot of time customizing the build, it's like having a chassis made out of Construx. The goal was to have an itx build with the lowest volume, currently it is 7" x 7" x 12.5" - 10 liters. There are a lot of issues going that small, so a "cage" style is the theme for now. I just received a Dark Rock Pro 4 so that's gonna throw a curveball, will definitely protrude...

Plays AAA games at 1440/ultra very well. That along with Lightroom and a little mining and it's a tight little rig. Quiet...

Nothing fancy about the 1700 or stock cooler. Temps are great. 3.7ghz on all 8 cores. 1660ti is nice, but will head to the intel build when the 2070 comes in.

First thing my old lady said was, "PSU cooler upside down"

I suppose this isn't really on topic for this website, but would you mind clarifying living "remotely"? Great build by the way! Very unique way to squeeze a lot of power out of a small system.

Yeah man we are out here!! 4,0000+ miles west of Hawaii on a little island called Saipan... Most of the parts were ordered from Newegg and delivered in NYC. My girl then graciously carried them from NYC to Japan to Guam and finally the Marianas...

Very nice config indeed!

Have you tried undervolting the R7 1700?

Something like 1.275-1.286-1.312V, lower is better as long as it's stable. Or drop it to 3.6 GHz and use 1.2-1.25V. It will help keeping it below 70° C, for long-term usage.

yeah it's on my list to do... but... when the 3700x gets in I will toy more then. I had it stable at 3.9ghz on stock cooler which I thought was respectable. It's a fun chip with impressive potential for the $, but I got it as a buffer while I waited for Ryzen 3000

Sooo I hopped into UEFI and undervolted after doing some research - from 1.330v @3.7ghz to 1.1875v @3.7ghz - stable after multiple stress tests, mining and benchmarks. IT RUNS 10 DEGREES CELSIUS COOLER UNDER LOAD!!! Thanks for the push skyrise!!!

Awesome!

So "CPU Temperature Under Load" is now 65°C? You can update the "Details" description on the left to show your latest results.

You're welcome!

It's quiet to me. I guess it's all relative. My GS75 "Non-Stealth" it the grand champion noisiest laptop I've ever owned. Simply drowns out everything...

As far as silence the Corsair PSU is absolutely amazing. I have the SF600 and the fan (although quiet) kicks on under load with this same build. I'm yet to activate the SF750's fan, under load w/ 65w CPU TDP and 120w GPU TDP.

2070 on the way with 175w TDP - let's see if the SF750 warms up enough then...
