Description

I upgraded my i7 8700 to an i7 8700K overclocked to 5.2GHz stable. A stress test was performed for a period of no less than 10 minutes, and temps remained at a cool 72 degrees with the NZXT Kraken X62. I also changed out the case as well in favor of the Phanteks Eclipse P350X, and added an additional nVidia 1080 for SLI. Overall, this is one killer machine~

Probably one of the higher end builds ever put into the p350x lol. Looks nice though. You seem to have found a golden chip also. Congrats

But seriously it is a nice build!

Well I have it delidded, so temps were okay. Maxing at 80-85c under stress tests. I like 50-60c and max 80 for me i dont bother with but volatge i felt was too high so i kept it at 1.4 with a 5.2ghz oc. I'm happy with that thats for sure!

Lol 60 at idle, how does it only rise 12 degrees under load?

Where does it show 60 degree idle temp?

  • 17 months ago

It says 60c in the details section.

Ah right, I always forget that section is under the parts list and was looking in the photos and link in description lol.

Certainly seems odd for idle temp to be so high. Assuming its a typing mistake OP?

no, it's 60. I don't have AC because the navy thinks we don't need it (my husband is navy) in base housing here in california -_- so ambient temps are quite high

That makes delliding necessary, thank you both for your service!

I'm assuming you've delidded the cpu?

You would assume correctly! This gamer girl was smart haha. Unfortunately the ambient temperature tends to be high due to lack of AC (thanks Navy), usually around 80°F (26.7°C) so keeping parts cool even with an AIO has been troublesome. Delidding it was the best thing to do that I could think of to make it run cooler. I should mention I sent it to Silicon Lottery for the delidding since I was not about to break my CPU haha. They delidded it, replaced the stock thermal paste with liquid metal, then replaced the IHS back on it and sent it back. Totally worth it.

Why did you decide to go with 2 gtx 1080's(not ******** on you just wondering)

  • 17 months ago

my husband had a 1080, but he downgraded to a 1060 since all he plays is CSGO haha. So I stole his 1080 for SLI :p

Why the CPU upgrade? Was it worth it?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

it was extremely worth it. It was something I was planning on for a while now. I now get 5.2GHz on all cores

Do you think you have room to fit 2x 140mm fans on top without touching the radiator hoses?

Looks great! Where did you get the case? Can't seem to find anywhere

I'm not experienced whatsoever when it comes to building a PC but I think I am going to do something very similar. If the case (midtower) has built in fans do you think it will interfere with the water cooling installation?

How does this perform? I am getting the extact same build but instead a GTX 1080 Ti instead of the SLI’D 1080’s!
