  1. How much radiator do you need?

    Intel Core i7-5930K @ 4.5 GHz 1.205V that's liquid cooled. My Asus ROG STRIX OC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB that's under its own air cooler. I live in California, and the ambient temperature is set to climb throughout Spring through Summer. I don't have a thermostat in the room my computer occupies, but it tends to sit around the mid-70's in degrees Fahrenheit according to the heater's thermostat.
  2. Wonder what happened to my cover photo 😕

  3. How much radiator do you need?

    Yes, since the component temperature is dependent on the coolant temperature, which is also dependent on the room's ambient temperature, and what case the radiator is enclosed in (which also means placement and fans used are factors). After an hour, the coolant temperature will reach equilibrium, which also means that the component temperature has also reached that state. For my custom loop setup (which is provided by an EK-KIT P360), I am basing my fan curves on the coolant temperature, and the radiator is installed at the top of my Corsair 900D, and my CPU temps do not exceed 70º C on any core, as well as the package according to HWiNFO64. The fans I'm using are Corsair ML120's, and the fan RPM maxes out at 2400 RPM, but how I have them set up, they don't breach even 1200 RPM with the coolant temperature reaching near 40º C. That's just how I have my custom loop and fan curve set up. And as for the fan controller, I'm using the Asus Fan Extension Card, and it's all set up within the BIOS of my motherboard.
  4. So I checked out NVIDIA's RTX Ray Tracing technology, and I have to say it's pretty impressive. Its advantage is it can be implemented in supported engines. However I do believe that its limitation on Volta is for their preliminary demo, and I do believe that some optimization is still in the works to get it to run on Pascal, and at most Maxwell, since they know that most users are on one of those two architectures anyways, and what sold Pascal from the beginning was its monumental performance jump compared to Maxwell.


    Compared to Radeon Rays, AMD claims it has similar results, and they've stated that it can be ran on any hardware, but I really doubt its adoption rate compared to NVIDIA RTX due to technical support and resource allocation, despite the former being open-source middleware. I still think the latter will get much better adoption rates thanks to the tech support you get, and development resources to further enhance scalability and performance. 


    But I still think the Brigade Engine from OTOY does it better, as that engine's ray tracing tech can be ran on two GeForce GTX TITAN cards for 1080p 60 FPS, and it is full scale, rather than being limited to reflective objects, shadows, and transparent objects. But if I have to choose between Radeon Rays or NVIDIA RTX, I would pick NVIDIA RTX because of its scalability, performance, and the most important feature of all: technical support. Recently, I've filed a few tickets to AMD for some help with their Radeon ProRender, and they've never replied to them in a timely fashion, so I am in limbo, and therefore I discontinued using Radeon ProRender, and went back to Cycles for blender, and Arnold Renderer for Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya.

  5. Looks like my final voltages read out as 1.214V VCCIN, which is all I need for a 4.6 GHz overclock.


    What do you guys think? Is my i7-5930K a better overclocker on these forums?

      @JurunceNK  You might want to share your VCore if you are looking for feedback on how decent the chip is.  While VCCIN matters, it's not nearly as much as VCore, VCache, IMC voltages and the like.


      I suspect that you might be sharing VCore labeled as VCCIN buy your motherboard or yourself and in that case, I'd say it's decent depending on how you tested it?


      Congrats on the overclock bud.

      CPU Core Voltage settings are Adaptive Voltage, with the Additional Turbo Voltage set to 1.205V, which results in HWiNFO64 reading it as 1.214V. Using a DDM on the back of the socket reads higher, and I don't know what that voltage will read with 1.205V typed in.


      CPU Cache, System Agent, and CPU Input are all left at stock voltage. Increasing these results in higher power draw at idle, which is something I try to attain so when I'm doing light tasks, it doesn't burn power for nothing. RAM is manually set to 2666 MHz 14-16-16-36 1.2V


      I tried to also increase the CPU cache while maintaining the adaptive nature, but this resulted in the system not booting due to insufficient cache voltage during initialization. I get stuck at code 95 (pci bus request resources). Plus for what I do, I found that increasing the cache frequency does almost nothing unless I do 4K video editing, which is something I don't do.


      I used AIDA64 and playing some Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition to test the overclocks, since I do use this system for content creation where I render on the CPU, and gaming on it. The game in question I found can leverage the 12 threads rather well.

      CPU cache overclcocks and memory overclocks will directly impact your results for CPU overclocks.  This is to say that the lower you go on cache and memory OCs, the more you're likely to get away with on the CPU clocks themselves at any given voltage.   Really simple if you think about it.   More cache speed combined with faster memory puts more data across the CPU package, therefore increasing load on the CPU itself.  More load at the same voltage results in less stability.


      CPU Cache adaptive voltage on Asus x99 motherboards is broken.  It doesn't work on x99 or x299.   Offset is what I recommend over manual voltage in this case.  If you try to OC the cache with voltage set to adaptive it just won't work, which is what I believe you are experiencing.  I ran 4.4 cache on my 5960x with a very small increase in voltage over stock (~1.2v).  I don't recommend exceeding 1.3v on the cache and you're probably better off staying below 1.25v for extended load situations.  


      If your goal is to maintain good power draw at idle, than you may want to stick with what you have now.   If you want to get the most out of your CPU, definitely increase CPU cache as this directly impacts memory performance (both latency and bandwidth) on x99. 


      As far as testing, AIDA64 or anything for that matter is great as long as it is more stringent than the actual loads you will observed during daily use.   No sense in setting your voltage up for a Linpack or Prime95 load if you never plan to subject your CPU to those levels of load.  With that said, it's really hard to tell people whether or not they have a great CPU.   Everyone's version of stability is different.  I can tell you that your chip definitely doesn't suck.  xD


      Have fun with it!



  6. Okay, so now I'm validating a 4.6 GHz 1.2V Adaptive overclock on my Intel Core i7-5930K. Almost 5 minutes in and it’s looking better than my previous attempts at 4.6 GHz.

  7. Now I find myself stabbing the shit out of my system with a cheap digital multimeter. Nothing fancy, but it does get the job done.


    GPU core voltage reads out at a maximum of 1.17-1.18V. I also found a 1.4V line (which I assume is the VRAM voltage), and a 1.09V line (which is important for the card to function, but does nothing for overclocking).


    I have an Asus ROG STRIX card. For anyone who doesn't know, those really tiny holes allows you to take readings of the GPU. The row closest to the edge of the PCB are your read points, and the row behind it is ground (my educated guess, don't quote me on that).


    I also took the opportunity to measure the VCore voltage at the back of my motherboard. I have determined that there are two SMD capacitors that handles VCore. The reading was 1.29V. I typed in 1.2V in the BIOS, and HWiNFO64 reads out 1.214V

    1. DildorTheDecent


      That GPU voltage is interesting. You have to be using the T4 BIOS to be reading that amount of Vcore. 1093mV is usually the cap for Pascal GPUs. Only the 1080 Ti K|NGP|N and the Strix T4 BIOS can break it so far.


      Also there should be actually V Check points on the RVE10 since it's an RVE with lights. Look above the 24P connector.

  8. I don't think I can do 4.7 GHz at 1.3V Adaptive VCore. If so, then I'm golden, despite me pushing 1.45V for benchmarking.


    For memory, I manually set it to 3200 MHz 14-16-16-36 1.35V, which is what the RAM was rated for.

      I failed.


      Back home, reset the CMOS, and back to square one again. First things I did was set up my fan curves, enabled ErP Ready (S4+S5), switched Ai Overclocking to Manual mode, and disabled Fully Manual Mode to enable Adaptive Mode for VCore.

  9. Well well, I'm on ArtStation now, like @Serin is as well :D.


    This is for more of my professionally-done pieces that I want to post, so that way, when potential employers look my ass up, they can see 'em!

  10. The only time you would consider adding another radiator is to lower the coolant temperature using the same fan RPM, to lower the noise, or a combination. In an ideal situation, you would have the GPU in its own custom loop, meaning a dual loop setup with its own radiator to separate the coolant from the CPU and the GPU. The reason why CPU temps would go up is because the coolant has increased in temperature now that a GPU is present in the loop, which contributes to coolant heat-up. If you feel like you don't want to add another radiator, then you should increase the fan RPM to compensate for that thermal increase. As for the pump, the D5 can handle two large radiators and four GPU waterblocks, running at 100% speed. You're definitely okay there. As for coolant flow, if you're running in series, then the coolant flow rate would remain unchanged, but the coolant would take longer to reach a component once it goes through the radiator and/or through a waterblock to reach a targeted component. The only times flow rate is reduced is if you lowered the RPM of the pump, the coolant passes through a high-resistance waterblock, or it passes through a high-resistance radiator (though radiators tend to be the lowest impedance in a loop, but slimmer radiators presents higher resistance), or a combination of these things. In my situation, I've targeted a CPU temperature of 40-60º C while gaming, and 65-70º C under 100% load (such as 3D rendering), with the coolant temperature at less than 40º C, and fans spinning at 1,200-1,400 RPM under load, and 400-600 RPM at idle. If you think about it, the radiator is cooling the coolant running through it, whilst the waterblocks help transfer the heat from the component to the coolant running through it. That's why I based my fan curves on the coolant temperature and not the CPU temperature. This allowed me to lower the fan RPM by a significant amount at idle, and at load, and gives me finer control of how the fans spin up and down. It now tops out at ~1,350 RPM, and CPU temps are still fantastic. And by the way, you can only lower the coolant temperature by so much before you're looking at sub-ambient cooling solutions, such as chilled water to start with. Without sub-ambient cooling in mind, you would perhaps reach the point of diminishing returns, whereby you've lowered the rate of the coolant heat-up to a low-enough value that adding more radiator space doesn't yield better noise/cooling performance.
  11. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I installed the Bitspower temperature sensor in my T-fitting, and found that it does not obstruct the flow at all. No need for the extension fitting after all
  12. Overall, I am genuinely satisfied with my new custom liquid cooling I got.


    I was able to cut down on the noise by a very respectable amount by moving the temperature polling from the CPU to the coolant temperature, yet the CPU temperatures themselves lowered, especially when it's hit with a 100% load, such as 3D rendering for example.


    Lowering the D5 pump however, to around 20-25% duty cycle, creates an interesting humming noise that passes right onto the Corsair 900D. Power consumption has also lowered at those duty cycles as well.


    Taking some advice from my brother, I'm going to keep my Corsair 900D for a while longer. That ridiculous radiator capacity can come in handy later on down the road.


    I'll get some pictures some time later. But to give you an idea of my loop order, the outgoing fluid passes through the back of the case (I can still close the side panel, despite my worry that I would not), and enters the radiator, enters the CPU block, and back to the pump/reservoir unit. The outlet has a T-fitting, which is plugged with a temperature sensor on one end. I'm using the UEFI BIOS to control the fan curves, and I can get the fans as low as 500-600 RPM at idle, as long as the coolant remains at less than 30º C.

  14. 4.8 GHz at 1.4 volts stable.


    Using AIDA64 to test the stability.

    1. DildorTheDecent


      Probably pulling 400W at the socket lol. 

    2. JurunceNK


      It gets close to that figure.


      I used that setting for benchmarking, and not for 24/7 usage. My 24/7 overclock is 4.6 GHz at 1.3V VCore.

    3. DildorTheDecent


      yeah same. I use 4.9GHz 1.425V for physics tests.

  15. Show off your latest purchase!

    This is the coolest thing I've added to my system so far! The T-block fitting is also perfect for the temp sensor 👌
