looking to upgrade my AIO

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys

i have a thermaltake V71 full tower case & at the moment my specs are:

MSI gaming pro carbon Mainboard

AMD  FX-8350 @4.2 ghz Cpu

NZXT Kraken X62 AIO

24gb Kingston hyper X DDR3 ram

2 Gigabyte G1 gaming GTX 970's in SLI

a Samsung 850 evo SSD (as main drive)

2 Toshiba 2Tb dard drives (for games & other stuff)

My build is in the gallery under blue dragon mk 2, but i hae removed the bottom 3 hard drives.

 I'm looking to upgrade to a ryzen 5 or 7 ( haven't decided which yet ) later this year & i want to upgrade my Kraken X62 to the X72. BUT the 2 drives in my rig are at the top & as the x 72 is longer it's going to interfere. my question is, can i have the radiator with the tubing going to the left of the cpu or does it have to be on the right? any & all help here would be great i'm just curious about how this might turn out if i tried it, when i get time .

Nah don't bother, you've still got the GPU to worry about. Or else, save up for a high end processor. the X62 and X72 don't differ much in performance.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

if you even think you're going to upgrade to a 1070ti go the the RTX 2060 for sure .. same cost for slightly better performance .. just my 2c

While I'm here, if you're short on monies .. don't bother upgrading your AIO. Ryzen runs relatively cool for their power and you're still looking at buying a motherboard and RAM at a minimum as well as soon to be GPU before replacing a perfectly good cooler
