first pc build, what you think?
« on: 01-May-17, 12:57:22 »

Hi there
so I built my first pc, specs are:
MSI Z270 Gaming Pro
I7 7700k oc'd to 5ghz (voltage peaks at 1.368 but set up with adaptive to lower when needed)
MSI RX 480 oc'd to 1350mhz & memory 2150mhz (only added 15% power on afterburner and temps do go above 75)
Arctic freezer 240 water cooler
16gb Ram Crucial Sport oc'd from 2400 to 2666mhz and clocks 15-15-15-36 (voltage at 1.26)
500gb SSD Crucial BX100
Corsair RM650x PSU
Seems stable, well no crashes after 40hrs+ gaming on Warhammer eternal
crusade & Elder scrolls online (gaming temps go from low 60s to no more than mid 70s). Also ran few realbench stress tests and few prime (temps on these float between 70-80)
So given the OCs do you think the above temps in game and stress tests look ok?

Wow! Amazing PC for someone who has built a PC for the first time. Awesome work and congratulations for your first ever successful PC Build!

I've never built a PC myself, but I will in the future. You did an awesome job on building it first time.

thanks all. I was abit nervous building it right enough and just spent time researching online first
changed some of my settings and think ill stick with these for now

Have set my cpu at 4.8ghz and in realbench the cpu v doesn't go about 1.264(bios set at 1.235). Temps during gaming dont go above 60 and stress testing around 65-68.

 Also played about with fan speeds for cpu and gpu and really happy as can hardly hear them now under load  granted gpu sits around 75-80 while gaming.

it you look at the tubes even like that they look very tight so was probably the only way it would fit to the radiator and CPU in that position only!
