    Yeah new intel cpus are ridiculously expensive now. Personally I might jump onto the AMD Threadripper platform if their cpus like the 1950x drop as low as £350-£400 because at that price the 16 cores make sense. Also Asrock did a X399M Taichi mobo that would also fit in my current case and it supports up to 3x M.2 SSDs mounted to the board itself.

    Im know what you mean when you talk about having an affinity towards a certain bit of tech. For me its the X99 Platform. IMO its by far one of the best value platforms now which still has support for new tech like M.2 and multi gpu setups with a i7 5930k or higher. Also it was one of intels last platforms in which you could get the cpus to OC around 50-60% higher with little to no experience with overclocking, and all with a AIO setup too. My current i7 5820k will keep me going until I can find a cpu that supports the same minimum of pcie lanes and can hit 5ghz stable as Im trying to build a 1080p 240hz gaming pc for my new ASUS PG258Q monitor but the cpus and gpus are only now capable of reliably delivering that and they are grossly expensive. I only paid £200 for my cpu and mobo combo used on eBay and the idea of having to spend X2 that just for the cpu doesnt sit well with me anymore.

    A GTX 980TI is perfect for 1080p gaming though, and 6GB VRAM is ample for modern and future titles. Ive owned 1080's in sli and that was overkill for 1080p gaming because they dont scale well in SLI especially in 1080p. Also a 980TI is almost equivilant to a 1070 and I dont think you will find anyone calling that a shit GPU. Also I only paid £200 in total for the 980TI with the Waterblock included, which is about £100 cheaper than they usually sell for on eBay and £70-100 cheaper than an aircooled 1070 sells for with a refference cooler. So its actually pretty good considering most people buy the likes of a 1060 or 1050ti which get destroyed by a 980TI with a decent OC like +100mhz Core, +150mhz vram. Also the gpu never exceeds 38'c which is great in a loop like this.

    I needed to maximise the cooling capacity of the rads that I could mount to the case, which meant mounting as large a rad ontop as possible, which the Monsta 80mm filled perfectly. There was just enough space inside to fit the additional 30mm thick rad inside with the push pull configuration, so these two rads combines gave me the effective cooling of a up to 2x240mm rads potentially. There really isnt any AIO 120MM rads that fit this role sufficiently either, and Ive got plenty of experience with custom loops now so I figuered why the hell not. Plus, theres a sense of personal achievement when a completing a custom loop, and it really makes a pc build unique and personal. Plus, I wanted to try something no ones done before.
  5. Ive recently completed the custom built pc I always promised him I would. It cost me <£1000 in total, and Im pleased with it. I was aiming for a modestly powerful build that can do 1080p 60fps High-Max settings in most titles and future gamez for him for years to come. Here are the specs: .intel i7 5930k clocked to 4.4ghz, .Asrockmotherboard X99M Extreme 4 .16gb of corsair dominator platinum DDR4 3000Mhz RAM running at 2666mhz atm .Geforce gtx980ti with EKWB fitted .Samsung 950 Pro 512gb and 256gb M.2 ssd's .Seagate Firecuda 2TB SSHD .kingston HyperX 120gb SSD .Corsair ax760i .EK Revo D5 Vario Pump and Reservoir, .Alphacool 120mm 30mm thick Rad and nexxxosmonsta 120mm 80mm thick rad, .Fully custom watercooled hardtube Loop .Silverstone ft03 PC chasis Mix of slim 15mm 120mm fans and 2x Corsair SP120L's on the Monsta 80mm thick rad

    Major Problem with my GTX 1080

    Happening on nearly every game now. RIP 1080.

    Major Problem with my GTX 1080

    It only happens sometimes in certain games. Anyway someone is buying the card off me on eBay so it is their problem now haha Let this be a warning to anyone buying pc parts online lol

    Major Problem with my GTX 1080

    No, i even have the power limit and temp limit set to 120% in msi afterburner.
  9. So basically Ive owned my GTX 1080 for about 2 years now. I used to run relatively high overclocks on it +245/+495. Now I cant even run +50/+100 without games crashing. I have removed all overclock on my gpu and things have only gotten worse. And now recently I have encountered this issue where my screen will freeze whilst gaming with these pixels appearing, the sound will continue, and the game will either crash or the screen will go completely black with no video feed being detected. At this point i have to reset my pc. Does anyone know what this issue could be? Is it degredation of the gpu, is the card near death. I have the latest drivers installed, the gpu is watercooled with temps not exceeding 60'c, yet the gpu is constantly hitting its power limit at 1 when the gpu is at stock boost clocks of around 1860Mh. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Not if they intend to overclock their cpu, ram and gpu.

    Pc Build budget $1500

    Buy a used i7 5930k and a something like an Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard, used GTX 1080 founders edition and a Corsair AX 860i, 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 RAM, Corsair H115i cpu cooler, any case that supports ATX motherboards. Storage is up to you.
  12. Im currently pushing my GTX 1080 OC as far as possible. My current OC is 100% Core Voltage, +120% max power limit, +189hz clock speed and +465hz memory speed. The problem is I used to be able to run it with in SLI at +198hz and +498hz on the memory, but now the card cant support that on its own. The card appears to be hitting the power limit aswell for some reason and fluctuates really badly. I have GTX 1080FE but its watercooled with an EK FC1080 and custom loop with 2x240mm and 1x360mm rad. Can anyone recommend how I stabalise this OC?

    My new MATX Custom Waterloop build

    Finally got the system completed and up and running. Heres some pics of the finished thing. p

    My new MATX Custom Waterloop build

    Got my new loop installed. Everything looks great. Going to test the loop for leaks. Hopefully should be gaming on it by the end of the day.
  15. Im building my newest pc, downsizing from my last build which was an x99 platform build with 2x1080's in SLI in a Thermaltake Core X9. Long story short I killed my i7 5960x by Overclocking it, probably too much voltage for too long. I made the decision to downsize from the CORE X9 as my pump didnt have enough pressure for the 3x480mm rads i had in my loop, so I've downsized to an Inwin 8.0.5.5 Cube MATX case which ironically cost me more to buy than the larger case. Anyway I sold the dead 5960x and my Asus X99 E WS motherboard and downsized to a 5820k and Asrock X99M Fat1lity motherboard (which i got in a bundle for only £200), which cost me less than I sold my Asus X99 E WS motherboard for (£240). Anyway for the custom waterloop I bought 2x Nemesis Black Ice 240mm rads for £35 each and 1x Nemesis Black Ice 360mm rad new. Bought a used XSPC Ion reservoir as I needed something compact and solid which provided multiple mounting options. Anyway my everything else from my old build is basically being reused; Pump, PSU, Hard Drives, SSDs, Soundcard and one of my GTX 1080's which I hadnt sold yet. Might be a bit of a downgrade but its a cheap system to hold me over till Threadripper 2 and the new model mobo's and hopefully a new X399 MATX motherboard releases. Heres my progress so far with what Ive managed to assemble in the case. I'll be updating this post once I have made some progress, ideally when fiiting the piping.
