This build was long overdue, it replaces my old system that had two Intel Xeon E5540s; which was built in 2009. I know using a PC that was almost 10 years old was painful. After the windows update to fix the Meltdown vulnerability installed, its age shined through. Anyway, enough about the old slam pig, the new rig is used for gaming, media encoding, and business workflow tasks for my home based company.
Since the system was built last night, I am currently working on finding the sweet spot for OCing the CPU. Currently the system is clocked at 4 GHz with voltage at 1.29 running at 30C idle and 70C under full load, using silent fan profile; no issues thus far. As for the RAM the system is running very stable using the XMP profile at the full 3200 speed.
Visiting the GPU aspect of the build, I find it interesting that the 1070, when in my old system, ran a extremely stable VRAM OC at 4500MHz but now in the new system the card does not like it's VRAM overclocked; I believe it is due to the fact that my old system was a reverse ATX style case, which naturally allowed the heat to dissipate away from the VRAM heat syncs, so VRAM is at stock clock rate. To that end, however, in the new system I have gotten the card to OC at 2028MHz on the GPU core.
