    Audio Humming Noise, still can't eliminate!

    Well, I moved the sound card above my GTX 1080 Ti, and this fixed my problem! My GPU shouldn't lose buses, since 5960X and X99 should allow X16-X16 PCIe lane configuration...

    Audio Humming Noise, still can't eliminate!

    I have Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality card. If I use the headphone on the sound card, I get humming noise with amplification if I move my MX Master mouse around, or play LinusTechTips videos. If I use the front headphone panel on the front (where the front panel port connected to the sound card), there are no noises! So weird! I've swapped different cables, isolated all speaker cables away from power and video cables with no success. Any tips would be really appreciated!

    X99 FT03 Build Project - As of Sept 22 14 [CLOSED/PAUSE FOR NOW]

    I finally got my dominator platinum and I'm done for now. If I ever get extra time to further work on my build, I'll add window panel and motherboard heatsink painting to complete black / white color combination. Thank you to those who watched and responded.
  4. Thanks everybody for sharing your overclocking experience!! Now I am much more familiar with where I'm staged now. Definitely I got almost an unanimous vote on selecting H80i was not a good choice for 5960X. (I'm in dead end for that since I have FT03 case...)
  5. I've over-set to 1.26 before, sure the P95 ran for quite a while, but the temp was hitting as high as 95C! I guess H80i is too small for this beast huh?
  6. Apparently even after setting my BIOS as 1.185 + 0.015, it adds more than 1.2. I'm thinking if voltage config is set to Adaptive Mode, it causes that?
  7. This 5960X has been OC'd to 4 Ghz with VCore of 1.185 + offset of 0.015V Yet the CPU just gives in after 30 minutes of torture testing via Prime95. I'm wondering if there are more things I can play around before admitting I got a below-average CPU. Basically the hardware are the following besides the CPU AsRock X99M Killer MB Corsair H80i 2x GTX 780 Ti 1200W Silverstone Strider Gold Evo I would like to hear your thoughts.

    Okay. I installed temporary ADATA RAM kit and got it running and set up. As for overclocking... I've placed 1.18V Vcore for 4Ghz but it's still not stable after 30 min of Prime95... Oh come on. Looks like I got a not-so-good CPU. Temperature went as far as 84C. Pushing to 4.2Ghz is going to be a super pain as soon as I remove a push fan.

    Well this is sad.... I just got a call saying that the dominators are back-ordered and expected to be shipped on Sept 30th. I have to wait that long to start up my system.

    I'll go with the current configuration for now. After OCing my CPU up to 4.2Ghz, and if I see any component going above 80C, I'll start adjusting the cooling strategy. If things comes to worse, I'll just throw another 120mm right on front of the motherboard, but trying to avoid it since it will kill the appearance. Another side note regarding of push fan, if I start compromising the RAM that goes underneath that fan by removing whole bunch of heatsinks (as much as removing the top heatsink fin), that would be a very dangerous game to play. I'm even thinking of placing a very high air flow fan as a pull fan instead. Bash all you like, but I just can't ignore the light bars on the dominator series. Oh and are you finding that 2x80mm noctua fans on the bottom will not suffice for 780 Tis?

    The corsair cable kit... I totally did not see that coming. That really cut me some marks on my lack of consideration really on what PSU to choose. Going with a thinner rad is not going to be an option for me. Actually, I'm thinking of going for a very high airflow fan on the exhaust instead. The idea is to have high airflow on exhaust to "suck" air to cross the radiator, rather than high static pressure. What do you and other people think? Does the static pressure happens both on inlet and outlet area of the fan?

    how is the 5820k doing?

    The only closest review I can find is tomshardware. It seems to over clock without raising temperature as much as 5960x.

    I'll answer to these questions in detail AS SOON AS I GET MY DOMINATORS. Man they take forever to get here!!!By the way, pull-only on the radiator shouldn't be too much of a sacrifice, right guys??? Right...?

    Placed 2nd GTX 780 Ti: Couple pics of GTX 780 Ti: I'm in trouble and I may need your voices on how to clean this up... X_X
