Black Widow 2.0 Build Log

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Here is my build log for my "new" system. I am retiring my current PC (not the one in my sig, that's already updated to my new one lol) since the aged FX 8120 is a bottleneck for my 980. New features of BW 2.0 includes: A case window, LED strips, and an improved color scheme (1.0 came out Black and Blue somehow). Specs of BW2 is in my sig, since I'm too lazy to put them in here.

It still isn't done yet as I still need to get the 4790K, which I will be getting sometime today.

If you want to see what my old build looked like, you can stalk my instagram (https://instagram.com/hypnodog). 

 

So far I have gotten the Maximus VII Hero and the 750D (all I need is the CPU since the rest are being reused, I'm not that rich, lol). I have no photos of the 750D, but I will go ahead and include a pic of the mobo:

After some thinking, a custom water loop will be added to BW! I will build that as soon as I get 2 Titan Xs.

The mobo looks really nice and kinda has a futuristic look instead of a simplistic look. I really like the color scheme as well.

I got the build up and running, but the power button on the 750D is DOA. Fortunately Corsair already approved the RMA and is going to send me a new front panel soon, I don't even have to send the broken one back!

So I tried OCing the 4790K as far as I could at stock voltage. My first try was 5.1 GHz, but it froze as soon as it began loading the desktop. I am currently sitting at 4.8 GHz stable, but I need to upgrade to a custom loop ASAP as I idle at 60C and go up to 100C under load. In the meantime I will have to downclock to 4.6 GHz again.

I wish my 5820k was cooler :/ the TDP is freaking 140w so you 4790k peasants get higher clocks than me. I guess that I'll push-pull to go above 4.1 lol.

lol, I'm used to using that. Typically I have to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, so I just changed the temp to Fahrenheit so I don't have to convert.

Finally updating the build log after about a month....I now have a H100i with 2 Corsair SP120 Quiet Editions in push and 2 BitFenix Spectre Pros in pull. Hopefully the LTT fans get released soon so I can fit my case with them xD I was only able to push the 4790K another 100 MHz due to heat. Hopefully I can squeeze another 100 MHz with the Noctuas. I think I may only be able to hit 4.9 GHz with a custom loop.
