  1. Alright... so the rtx2060 is in.... getting 30 to 40fps more in the gtav benchmark @ 4k res. Thats good for now. But I'm not a big fan of closed cases these days. So I found a 2020 extrusion rest bench on Amazon. I really just need it for the longer extrusions and PCIx hold down brackets. I'm a big fan of my P3 case.... and I want to have this x58 rig open air as well. And when you have a 3d printer.... well.... So the board will sit in the vertical. The power supply will be on the base, and under that will be trays for the Adata ssd and firecuda sshd. Just waiting for the motherboard standoffs to arrive... then just need to get my hands on a fully modular power supply. Also I need to come up with some front panel I/O, and a mounting bracket.
  2. Heres the Benchmark w/ the W3690 @ 4ghz
  3. Well its a good thing I ended up building this rig... With work from home I'm using it as a rendering machine for exported 3dxml and .step files for work. I have a RTX2060 XC Ultra in the mail to replace the GTX970 Turbo so I render images with GPU render enabled. This damn virus..... Hope everyone is staying safe!
  4. The w3690 finally showed up today.... already installed and OC'd to 4the on a hyper 212 evo. Benchmark is uploading to youtube.
  5. Here's the 4k benchmark on gtav. Global settings on high....
  6. Like the worn look of the paint job. Nice job!
  7. Well she is all assembled. Did the first test boot and windows install on thursday... everything checked out. Boot times and first openings of apps was soo slow because of the hdd. But had a nice surprise this morning. Because of the lockdown here in california, I have a lot of extra time on my hands. Last night I was going through all my misc. Computer stuff and found my old i5 Intel Nuc. Decided to open it up because I knew I bought a ssd for it. Sure enough a 256gb adata ssd was inside... and below that, a 120gb Samsung 850 m.2. Which I totally forgot was in there. So this morning I put the adata ssd in the x58 rig, reformatted everything and put win10 on that drive. Soooooo much snappier. Once the w3690 gets here and its installed and OC'd then I'll get quick boot enabled and we should be good to go. Already installed world of warships, world of warplanes and everything maxed out @4k. Runs butter smooth. Downloading GTAv right now and will report back on that later. The 850 m.2 made it's way into my main gaming rig. Reformatted all the drives and did a fresh install of win10 on the 850. Now just going back through and reinstalling everything again...
  8. Yea I see what you're saying. Steam will be loaded on the rig too. And it won't be on all the time. Really I just didn't want to get rid of all the components when everything still worked. Basically just making an excuse to build another machine.
  9. Correct. You can order the kapton sheets from Amazon. They are super cheap. I think shaxxon makes it. They come in packs of 5.
  10. Stop using painters tape. Kapton and hair spray is the way to go unless you have the cash for a whambam
  11. Hey guys... Long time Lurker, first time poster. I just recently finished building my current rig...
