  1. Didn't actually try any benchmarks just borderlands 2 which is CPU bound by its single threaded physics since it doesn't load it all on the GPU. GTX480 GPU usage was about 14% while it was being used as a dedicated physics card.
  2. Configured the system to run fanless when idle, virtually silent at low loads, very quit under typical gaming loads. Then it can ramp up to full speed if it gets hot for some reason like if I don't bother to turn on the ac when its 45c outside\inside. Provided I don't use batteleye anticheat software as it disables speedfan. Safe to say my GPU got hot and unfortunately its memory is now only stable at +600MHz instead of 700MHz+ OC. This was before i attached the new heatsinks to it. Also have a external temp probe stuck into the fins I glued onto the 1070 and so far the hottest those heatsinks have hit is 42c when there isn't much airflow thanks to this quiet fan profile Stuck the GTX480 in temporarily to test it as a dedicated physics card. It worked but it didn't help performance.
  3. NVIDIA GV102 Prototype Board With GDDR6 Spotted, Up to 525 W Power Delivery. GTX 1180 Ti?
  4. Neat so how long till he starts to oc it? And whats this new ram you have?

    What are you playing at the moment?

    Will be reinstalling when alpha 17 comes out.
  6. Ask yourself this... Am I a real boy?
  7. Its not noisy per say until I take the fans over 1000RPM which isn't needed for 24\7 use but the old fan which uses a sleeve bearing has a bit of a click to it. While the new fan that uses ball bearings seems to make a bit more air noise when from reviews I thought it should make less. This leads me to think that maybe some tabs on the front of the case that go past the tips of the blades for mounting a smaller fan could be creating some noise, so I may have to cut them off to find out.
  8. Felt it was time for a little update after i finally stuck some heatsinks to my 1070 heat plate Also installed a second 180mm fan on the rad FM181. Being white looks a little funny. It's such a tight fit the old AP181 had to be offset to avoid the other side of the case but there isn't enough room between the AP181 and the GPU to use the other mount plate anyway. I'm not sure what to make of the noise differences yet and just how much of it is due to the different mount positions in the case

    For hci i find 400% is the minimum when running 8 instances at once with ~1777mb each so that all threads are covered and all ram is used I like to leave it run overnight so that each has 1200 coverage just to be sure but it will usually find any bad errors in the first 50-200% I find hci is very heavy on the cache and is great for finding errors related to the memory controller but a bit slower than linux gsat for finding memory related errors

    i ended up deliding my 3770k with vise hairdryer method after i found the gap wasn't big enough to get a blade in had to smash the crap out of it with the hammer till it flew out of the vise ripping chunks out of the ihs and knocking one of the chips for the igp off the back eventually got it with some minor damage to the pcb edges i like to put the ihs back on these days its just safer and easier to make sure the cpu is getting good contact in the socket with lga still have some liquid ultra left to go under there if i feel like pushing harder but i don't think i would gain much with this cpu

    congrats on getting under 70ns i had to drop back to 3733 to get the above stable at 1.408v i tried setting it up to 1.4825vdimm but it didn't help also had similar instability in hci memtest at 3733c15 and 3733 1t but i have been able to drop the tRFC down to 300 i think this cpu needs a delid 1.395v 4.7ghz hits 80-85c instantly under prime kill the load and it instantly drops back to 20-25c idle the l1 cache and memory latency on amd is a bit slower but the l2 and l3 cache are impressive providing a fair bit more bandwidth at a similar latency to my overclocked 6700k

    nice you got tRFC a lot tighter than i expected yes b die does handle tight timings nicely apparently it can typically bench around 4000c13 with ~2vdimm this is what im currently running 1.43vdimm set but its actually reported as being at 1.408v in software i don't think this is 100% stable though i need to run some overnight tests

    with all those sub timing settings above there may be just a few of them that your mb doesn't like and a few that it does tweaking sub timings make a bigger difference for me than primary top three for me are tRFC <mostly this one from ~500 down to 310 but you probably wont get this low with hynix on amd and i think these two helped a bit but cant be sure anymore tFAW tWCL doubling tREF can help bandwidth a little but its instability is more likely to show up after idle periods than during a stress test so careful with it mind taking a screenshot of what your sub timings are at?

    just realized those timings would have been for first gen ryzen given the date of the post so you can probably tighten them up more than that this tool may be of help to https://www.overclock.net/forum/13-amd-general/1640919-ryzen-dram-calculator-1-1-0-beta-2-overclocking-dram-am4.html

    nice latency is getting to a much better level im guessing your ram is using hynix chips if so this may be handy you can use thaiphoon burner to confirm what chips it has https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-amd-motherboards/1624603-rog-crosshair-vi-overclocking-thread-2414.html#post26242714 Few more DRAM timing presets: Hynix AFR, 1DPC SR "Safe" - ProcODT 60 Ohms - DRAM Voltage / DRAM Boot Voltage 1.340V (keep these syncronized at all times) - VDDCR_SOC 1.025V "Extreme" - ProcODT 60 Ohms - DRAM Voltage / DRAM Boot Voltage 1.405V (keep these syncronized at all times) - VDDCR_SOC 1.025V Hynix MFR, 1DPC SR "Safe" - ProcODT 60 Ohms - DRAM Voltage / DRAM Boot Voltage 1.365V (keep these syncronized at all times) - VDDCR_SOC 1.025V "Fast" - ProcODT 60 Ohms - DRAM Voltage / DRAM Boot Voltage 1.390V (keep these syncronized at all times) - VDDCR_SOC 1.025V or you can find his b die presets here https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-amd-motherboards/1624603-rog-crosshair-vi-overclocking-thread-2067.html#post26178558 these are all for the asus corshair mb though so your mileage may vary
