I just kept it at 2666
Ya my brain swapped some sides around, sorry about that. Was a couple cups of coffee short the other day.
The FX is not better, not even close. CPU is almost certainly the issue.
CPU is most likely the problem, FX was bad when it launched and in newer CPU heavy games it is worthless.
Glad it was helpful, it has two on the front of the case and they work at rated USB 3.0 speeds.
Ya it certainly could. The client is a 70 year old woman though so I doubt she is fragging out on CS:GO during lunch break :)
I have used a thick thermal paste to repair heatsinks on some older hardware and I haven't had any problems with them yet. I would give that a try.
CPU clock 50 GHZ!!!!!
Nice build, SFF is always a challenge but when done well ( like this one ) they are unmatched in beauty.
Glad to hear.
Motherboard should be fine as long as it gets some airflow over it. I would try messing with RAM speed as 2400 is kind of slow for Ryzen but overall not a bad budget build.
What does the 5 beeps mean if you look it up. That should provide some clarity
Frame drops are most likely from the CPU, Ryzen would be a worth upgrade in the future.
Your friend is correct but hopefully with enough airflow things will get to an acceptable level. Good luck.
Glad you had some success. One last thing I thought of last night was when you repasted your GPU maybe one of the thermal pads fell off. Just a thought.
Ya troubleshooting can be quite daunting when you first start out but once you can narrow down the issue it becomes much easier to fix.
CPUIDs Hardware Monitor will tell you temps and voltage for all PC components. This should help you narrow down the issue.
If it is VRM thermal throttling try hooking up a fan and pointing it at the VRMs. This should help keep things cooler. If your CPU is thermal throttling then the cooler may be improperly seated or thermal paste is not spread correctly. Pull off the cpu cooler block and use isopropil alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean the paste off the cpu and the cooler block. Apply a pea sized dot of paste to the center of the CPU and put the cooler block back on. Put the retaining screws on and titen them in a criss cross pattern like you would a car tire but don't titen all at once. I usually make three trips around before reaching full titeness . Make sure the pump and fans are plugged in to the correct headers then turn on the PC. Lay your hand on the CPU block with the computer running and feel for vibration, this will let you know if the pump is running. Check your thermals with something like Intel XTU or OCCT and if they are in check I would run a 1 hour stress test to insure everything is working correctly.
Drivers or VRM thermal throttling would be my guess for stuttering. Worth looking into.
Looks CLEAN, good job.
Ya the thin aluminum is easy to cut but in my experience don't go too fast or the heat will cause a little bit of warping in the metal. I use mesh like you would by for a screen door or window and it works good. Keeps some dust and larger debris out while allowing plenty of air to pass.
Could dremel some holes in it and put some mesh behind them to improve temps. I have done it on a few cases. Just make sure to trace the holes good and take your time.
Either should be sufficient as long as your case has good enough airflow to supply the cool air. Noctua nh-u12a would be a good choice as well and it isn't huge.
Great board with lots of features and a solid VRM design.
Why not just replace the bad fan?
The 660p is a great drive arguabley the best bang for the buck drive on the marked.
Seeing the cooler hurt my very soul. Grab a nice noctua cooler.
How are the temps under load with the noctua?
Looks nice, good job!
How are temps?
2 140s at the front and one exhaust 120 is a good start. If you decide to not keep the phanteks ones I highly recommend anything made by noctua.
Most Phanteks fans are pretty good. I have used a combination of the stock fans and a couple aftermarket ones on my last 5 builds and I have no complaints. They aren't perfect fans but they are not trash.
This thing is CLEAN. Nice job on all the custom work!
Ya, Only time integrated graphics would be nice is if you had to troubleshoot the graphics card but I have access to multiple cards so not really needed for me.
Thanks, no sense in paying for a feature I will never use.
Not a huge amount of space for a custom loop but its possible. Im thinking about modding the front panel and PSU shroud so I can fit a 360mm rad and then opening up the front panel a bit more with a dremel once I settle on a design.
I had it at 5.2 last night but only had time for about 50 minutes of stress testing and it was getting hot. Probably will be thermally limited unless I bump up to a 360mm rad. Realistically though anything much above 5Ghz will be unnoticeable for most uses. Maybe later down the line I will push it as far as I can but I turned it back to 5Ghz before bed and that's were it will stay for a while. How high did you get your 9900KF?
This what mine is in and 5Ghz was no problem.
Ya it had to much pressure on it when it was sitting in the correct orientation unfortunately.
Ya they are hard to beat for the price!
That should help things out quite a bit.
This is budgeted very well. Your blower card might run a little warm but you can always put an aftermarket cooler on it if It gets too loud. Nice job!
Storage id always worth saving if it works correctly.
Background programs and windows update might be eating up resources. Virus scans use a lot of resources as well. How is your CPU temp, if the cooler has come loose you may be thermal throttling.
Glad it worked.
1.5V is too much. Try to keep it 1.4V at max for sustained use. Make sure to adjust load line calibration accordingly as you dial in your overclock to prevent voltage dips that cause crashes. Also what motherboard are you using and what are your VRM temps. Just because the CPU isn't throttling doesn't mean your board isn't. I would reset my CMOS battery and restart your overclocking attempts.
DDR4 defaults to 2133, open your BIOS and select XMP profile 1 to get the advertised speeds.
