I suppose you could run every fan at 10% and get ridiculous cooling while being dead silent.

 

In theory, but the GPU is probably going to be the noisiest part anyway. There's no point making the CPU cooling silent when the GPU is rather loud...

 

I guess when silence matters most is when it is just sitting idle and the GPU could be rather quiet then, but any decent CPU cooling should also be very quiet at idle. Unless you happen to use it for rendering and other long-running CPU-intensive workloads of course!

It's also a lot more breakable, depending on exactly what glass and how thick it is. And it's heavier, especially when thick. But I guess you can see through it much better...

It really is, that's why I always have a soft spot for the InWin and Lian-Li cases.

Back to basic, no-frills build. Had to say goodbye to watercooling due to time constraint. Without further ado.

Gave my 4670K a go and wasn't really impressed with the voltage and subsequently the heat it generates. So, I'm ditching Haswell (the damn FIVR and IHS TIM) and going Skylake. Will post some pics soon.

The thermal paste isn't that bad quality-wise, and I'm sure it isn't responsible for the voltages the chip needs... The worse part is the thickness of the thermal paste.

There's a reason why they moved the IVR out of the chip this gen (Skylake). ;)

EDIT1: Yes, Linux. The TIM has nothing to do with the voltage. IMO, it just makes it worse (e.g. poor heat transfer). Temps you seen with 1.3 V Haswell are ridiculous. And, I'm not gonna bother delidding it.

EDIT2: By the way, I don't have high hopes for Skylake. Some reported it being worse than Devil's Canyon (temp wise). I just didn't feel like buying old technology from last year. Overclocking Intel CPUs died along with the release of Ivy Bridge. Haswell just killed any hope left. Ah, the good old Sandy.

Also, a nice find by an OCN member (Exilon) which might explain Intel's decision re: the use of TIM instead of fluxless solder, "Soldered small dies thermal interfaces fail spectacularly after a certain # of thermal cycles due to solder cracking." The culprit = lead free solder(?). Xbox 360 RROD rings a bell?

Just noticed your second edit... With regards to the solder cracking after enough thermal cycles on small dies, I can believe that (although I can't actually verify it) – with a small die, it is not as strong as with a large die, and the physical stresses due to temperature gradients caused by cycling will also be higher due to higher die temperatures, which happen partly because the die is smaller while handling a similar amount of power, and partly because of the lower area to transfer heat through. Lead-free solder may contribute, because it seems that it is more brittle than lead-based solder, or alternatively it has different thermal characteristics. But yes, it does sound somewhat familiar – not only the RROD, but also various NVIDIA GPU problems around a similar time.

Real world performance = 0.0001s faster Fallout 4 load time. lol Joke aside, CAD, video editing, etc. will see substantial gains from the increased performance. For gamers, 850 EVO or even 830 will do you just fine. :)

 

Due to the limited number of PCIe lanes Sky Lake has; 16 lanes which get shared among my two graphics cards (x8 each), my 950 PRO is utilizing a x4 PCIe Gen.3 lane through Intel Z170 (Intel GL82Z170 PCH) which offers additional 20 lanes. Some people are concerned about the latency, but it is just as fast as the main PCIe3 x16 sockets driven directly from the CPU.

Ladies, ladies, ladies... There is no need to envy my effective cooling system.

I won't hold it against you if you have a good at it yourself.

Didn't you say your case didn't have a good enough airflow Harleh?

 

Anyways, I've moved on to a classier chassis now (which I also won't be able to use until I get back in the country)...
