    ZivZulander got a reaction from Mezoxin in Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!   
    Built this a few months ago, it's my main rig. Currently designing custom case and keyboard case for next build, but that's going to take a while.

    Still upgrading my overall station. Need a new chair, speaker stands, better lighting, etc. But the monitors and desktop I'm happy with.

    Finally got around to putting my Gateron Inks in a board. Linear, but kind of "poppy" switches; need to type with them more, but they have a Topre-like quality to them. WhiteFox case+PCB, dark grey Varmilo PBT keycaps.

    Im sure i will be adding USB hub, other fans and LED but not till finished.
     
    A Smart speaker to control home lights and other speakers and TV
     
    Ive been working on this a month and have all main parts and the plumbing loosely fitted today .
    I will be testing the plumbing in the next few days and if all is well will fit all the parts.
     
    This is my first attempt at a water cooled PC so please wish me luck....

    Unlubed NovelKeys Creams installed on a polycarbonate plate inside my KBDfans 5 Degree. These Creams are unlubed since I could barely get these switches to feel any different with thin and thick lube unless I poured a mountain of lube into it which is far too expensive.

    ZivZulander got a reaction from Ben17 in Noctua Air cooling for 3900x/3950x   
    I think that would work well both for compatibility and for cooling performance, particularly as Meshify C is front mesh. With good fans in front (I would go for 2x 140mm), you should be good on keeping CPU cool.
  12. Agree

    D15 or D15S, for the 3950X for sure. TridentZ isn't that tall, it should fit under all three.

    ZivZulander reacted to Tonyboss in Noctua Air cooling for 3900x/3950x   
    I am thinking in full fill Meshify with those:

    Front - 2x 140mm Noctua NF-A14P PWM (intake)
    Top - 2x 140mm Noctua NF-A140 PWM (exhaust - despite i have read when intake it give better results)
    Rear - 1x 120mm NF-a12x25 PWM (exhaust)

    CPU - NH-U12A (because of the ram clearance and i prefer low CAS latency)
    I am afraid of this cooling cpu to rapidly achieve 90º celcius when rendering. And i do not trust in AIO yet.

    After this i am looking for a good Mobo with good VRM to keep this chilling and fresh. I do not have intent to go OC. Just need a stable machine for work.
    Any thought?

    It should be enough but not be as silent and fast to react to quick in power spikes as a D15.
    therefore strong recommendation to get a D15 and possibly smaller RAM

    Using the U12A on my 3900X and it handles it very well even with PBO.
    I wouldn't do it for the 3950X (at least not without seeing reputable benchmarks), but the 3900X for sure.

    It doesn't look like HWiNFO is even pulling CPU temp. Wonder if the sensor is actually dead or whether there's a compatibility issue.

    RMx has been reliable for me.  Don't think Seasonic Focus Gold is bad, at least not current models.  I actually used one in a build for someone years ago and it's never had an issue under load.  Corsair's always my personal go to though for my own stuff.

    That's a pretty awesome parts list as long as you're good for money.  You could wait for the 3950X to come out I suppose.  Maybe get a 1440p monitor instead if you're so inclined.  Do you need the 64 GB of RAM?  I'd rather get 16 or 32 at a higher speed.
     
    I guess other than that you have several other options for case and motherboard...you could also pay a kidney to get a new RTX card if you wanted.
     
    What's your full use-case scenario? Actual budget?

    do you really need 64GB of ram? spend a bit more money for an AIB 5700XT instead of the reference card. get a corsair RMx or bitfenix whisper instead of the focus.

    ZivZulander reacted to RAS_3885 in Poor Case cooling   
    Holy crap that's a massive case.
     
    How do you know they are not removing heat effectively?  If your CPU and GPU temps are reasonable then the hot air is being removed from the case just fine.  You could probably remove all case fans and be fine with how much extra space and perforation that case has lol.

    ZivZulander reacted to MartinKweh in Air or Water   
    they said, Air is better. im a noob as well. based on what they said, there are air coolers that are actually better than water coolers.  watercoolers also have shorter life span than air coolers (broken pump = broken AIO) 
     
    Pros of air
    -cheaper
    -looks cooler(depending on the aesthetics)
    -has a longer lifespan(practically immortal unless you threw it around LOL)
     
    Cons of air
    -sometimes, if its too large, it can block the ram or even not fit in the case
    -(my personal fear) if the heatsink is too heavy it might fall off if not secured properly and practically destroy the gpu. 
     
    Pros of water cooling
    -Easier to install
    -can fit in most cases (depending on the size of the AIO)
    -can cool better(depending on the size of the radiator again)
     
    cons of water cooling
    -can leak(oof)
    -radiator can be hard to fit if the case does not support the mounting

    Air coolers are basically set it and forget it unless a fan dies.  There really are no parts of an air cooler that will die unless physical damage is involved.
     
    With an AIO you have the possibility of a leak, a pump dying, or a fan failing.  The chances of a leak or dead pump are admittedly very small if you buy a reputable brand, but still non-zero.
     
    Most people pick based on aesthetics or case size limitation (since the top end air coolers can be very large).  I personally like air for it's simplicity, but when I finally getting around to upgrading my gaming rig I may try an AIO.  But that's more since I want to switch it over to a sorta small form factor build where a large air cooler might not fit.
     
    I would not recommend custom loop water cooling as a first time system builder.  It will perform better than any air cooler, but the cost, complexity, and risk go WAY up.

    If a food item is in a can it can be stored at room temp till you open it, that's pretty much the entire point of an air tight seal.
