Description

Ongoing process, continuation of this ITX build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/DFV6Mp

Swapped out 1700 for 3700x Added DR4 Pro w/ Kryonaut.

Final dimensions are 8.25" x 8.25" x 12.5" (210mm x 210mm x 320mm)

Just under 14 Liters

Core Boost enabled and set Max CPU Boost to 200mhz.

I did -.10 offset and saw nice drop in temps, little performance drop. Stress temps were 75C and dropped to 68C.

-.15 offset caused dramatic decrease in performance.

Overclocked 2666 memory to 3200 and it's stable.

I'm currently 4.149 to 4.174ghz on all cores sipping 1.387v. Hitting 4.376 single core boost.

1660ti with Kryonaut repaste, stock settings.

Wow, a build with only 33 upvotes made featured

Over the years, I have seen featured builds who had 20~25 votes, even more less from the start. Even so with one of my past builds from long ago. Varies of course since some builds are more noticed. Appreciated for uniqueness or a fresh piece of art work and much effort was noticed. One part of many joyous moments when sharing custom computer builds among this community.

How do you like the monitor? Considering pulling the trigger on it soon.

A few gripes:

No speakers - I get it, it's a monitor, but would be a bonus to even have chincy speakers built in...

Inputs - three total - 1x HDMI, DP, and DVI

Does not have standard mount - so it's stuck on a table or maybe fabricate a mount for the wall

No remote - even a basic tiny one would be welcome...

I paid $400 shipped from Circuit City ?? which I though didn't exist anymore, I think it's a steal.

Picture is superb!!

Honestly, for the price, I've got no problems with those issues. I'm only planning on one DP input, I've got my own speakers, and I've never had a monitor with a remote. If the picture works, I'm down for it. Gonna go check Circuit City because (1) I thought they were also long gone and (2) $400 shipped is the best price I've seen anywhere.

Thanks!

There's not a bottleneck between the CPU and the GPU ? Just wondering :-/ +1 for the build really awesome

Hey Tigershark - Bottleneck Calculator on PCBuilds.com has it rated 91.3% BN Percentage

I have a 1070 sitting around - it's calculated at 99.75% - thanks for the heads up!!

Well.... hum.....exactly what I mean..... Higher percentage is worse.... not better... If you possibly sell your 1660 and your 1070, add some cash and go way up to a 2080 ti instead, you go form a way too high 91.3% BN to an outstanding 2.06%. So that will improve a lot your build.

Ahhhh I saw that after looking into it further...

I'm gonna try to hunt down a mini 2070 - that was the plan but the one I ordered from Amazon came from a scammer with scrap parts loaded in the box sadly...

Was heavily debating the X570 boards - but I got a big ol' warranty with NewEgg on this one so....

Warranty on a $180 board... cough not worth cough. Ahem, don’t know what hit me there.

My only suggestion would be 90°plugs for the psu and gfx card but other than that...nice rig! Super compact. MItx is, for sure, my next form factor.

For sure Billy!! Thanks!

ITX builds are like a drug. Each time I "finish" this style chassis I stare at it until I can manipulate it again...

Gonna hop on fleabay and get some 90's ordered...

measuring this in liters is a strange concept.

Also, Is there a story behind being off the grid?

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

🤣 yeah strange indeed... I was obsessed with going as small as possible and researched dozens of cases. Got to the point the "smallest" cases were significantly lower in volume, kinda eliminated a lot of the market when you stare at DanA4 ballpark volume...

I work offshore, so I'm disconnected from reality a lot. When I'm around it's really just to laugh at myself...

That's the reason I have A Life Offshore company shirts that say "Captain" - so everyone else can laugh too 🤪🏝🤙

Do you know if a test bench would be supported by the X52 kraken 240mm liquid cooler?
