Beautiful build, I also like small cases

Why 980 tho, are you waiting for the 1080Ti ? :)

I also went for a 850 Pro Raid0, really regretted it, but after the initial drama it turned out ok

Thanks for trying it out

I had a rev01, received a replacement rev03, both flicker heavily/very-noticeably when there are pixellated things moving around - can't play pixel games

Hi, I’ve been experiencing flickering with my P2415Q, as far as I researched, the issue only occurs on P2415Q’s, can you please test this reproduction example I created: http://www.kaansoral.com/images/pixel2/index.html - on non-P2415Q monitors it’s a smooth animation, on P2415Q’s, it’s flickering heavily - Thanks

Thanks for the info

They managed to fix the issues around the 1.4 BIOS, I'm currently at 1.5, didn't even upgrade to 1.7 yet - very very stable

Sorry for the late reply

650W is more than enough

GPU needs 300W, CPU needs 140W the remaining parts don't use much

PCPartPicker also helps a lot with wattage, as far as I remember, my build's max was lower than 500W or around 500W, so 650W has a lot of breathing room

Also, you can't find 650W+ easily for ITX spacing

Probably 1.00

These are kind of edge issues, they manifest as random shutdowns etc., our second system didn't have it either, had other issues instead, so it's a bit of a luck

Nice build, have the same motherboard, if you experience XMP issues, the 1.43 beta BIOS solves them

Comment reply on HyperStandard's Completed Build: It was a bad idea to build this

  • 52 months ago

With NH-D9L I'm running 1.23V at 42x with EIST/Turbo disabled, doesn't reach 70C with Prime95 on mixed

Averages 45C's on regular gaming

With 44x, ICCmax kicks in and reduces the multipliers (hwinfo64 is great, you can see which flags are active, ideally they should all be No's)

I think you can also reduce the voltage and the temps with it

Comment reply on drunk_klaus's Completed Build: Next Gen Mini ITX

  • 53 months ago

Best thing to do is to probably set the multiplier manually, disable speedstep + turbo, set a constant voltage

I would go for 4.6 + 1.3V (4.0 + 1.23V for me, no need to OC yet :)

The links are all me by the way, I've contacted MSI too, they acknowledged the issue, I'm hoping the next BIOS update will be heavenly

Nice build

We have 2 builds with the MSI Z170I, both has different moods

Let me know if you see anything along these lines: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/766755-6700K-IA-Max-Turbo-Limit-IA-Turbo-Attenuation-(MCT)-flags-on-hwinfo64?p=7879375#post7879375 Or: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=262420

As a suggestion, there is a 1.3 BIOS out: http://www.msi.com/product/motherboard/support/Z170I-GAMING-PRO-AC.html#down-bios

As a question, is your motherboard Ver 1.00?

I hope you don't mind my shocking comment :)

I'm surprised the XMP works without issues, have you stress tested?

It's usually a hit or miss, it seems you hit it well

Np :)

For ITX, I would skip m.2 - the m.2 is pretty new, there are issues, ITX m.2's are usually short while beefy m.2's like samsung 950's are long etc. Just something else to think about (for my motherboard the m.2 slot is under the motherboard for example)

I wouldn't vouch for it but the 2.5" sockets grap the ssd/hdd pretty well, tho I'm not sure what would happen when a mechanical hdd gets in there

I used this for the 3.5": http://www.amazon.com/3M-Dual-Lock-Reclosable-Fastener/dp/B007OXK1AK With enough imagination any empty area becomes an hdd bay :)

Comment reply on kaan's Completed Build: Mechanical Turkey

Yes cables are extremely stiff and un-bendable, inserting the PSU/cables as it is would definitely break or stress things beyond safety limits, soft PSU cables should work tho

The logical thing to do is to remove the 3.5" bay anyway, If I could do this all over again, I would go for a simple SSD+HDD Duo, probably 1TB+2TB's (for both builds)

If you have one 3.5"'s - you can tape it to the bottom of the case like I did for my brother

I brought this up with Corsair, they said they have a PSU enlargement bracket for this case just for this reason :)

With the 3.5" bays removed, things were pretty spacey tho (As clarification, the 2.5" bays are on the side, they are out of the way of everything)

Wasn't Windows traumatic after 20 years of Mac's?

I recently built a Windows machine just for gaming while my OSX system stays in place, developed a panic attack in the process

Putting your work on a Windows machine is like living with a bomb, it could fail at any moment and take everything with it (Tho I guess their backup solution should be working by now, but can't beat the Time Machine + agile restore's)

I wouldn't

Lots of CPU/XMP/RAM issues, BIOS's are too funky with the voltages, temps are high-ish

I'm at my second/third set of RAM, got 3000MHZ, turns out 3200MHZ ones are stable, noticed after the newegg reviews poured in, long story short, wait a bit :)

After some intense debugging, it works good tho, stable without XMP, cool with CPU voltage locked to 1.2V

Yeah the Corsair RAM coolers were pretty cool, I was almost installing it vertically to an empty space I had in the case, so they would concentrate the air to the RAM's/CPU

The fans look great when they light up too

Good idea :)

I was expecting the Motherboard to be larger and GPU to be smaller, it was pretty interesting to see the actual sizes of the components, the Motherboard was tiny while the GPU was pretty huge

Yes it does seem to be common, I wish I didn't test what I tested yesterday, lost the sense of stability I had after experiencing the shutdown with XMP

I should do the same, wait for BIOS issues to be ironed out and retry XMP+Auto voltages at that time

After the experience, I ran Prime95 + Furmark for 1-2 hours, things were pretty stable/cool, which supports your BIOS issues theory

Comment reply on kaan's Completed Build: Mechanical Turkey

  • 53 months ago

Thanks for the great advice, the current 1x 140mm intake + 2x 120mm exhaust seem to do a decent job tho, at full cpu/gpu/ram load, Prime95+Furmark, things were at <70C CPU + 76C GPU, the GPU fans stayed at 50%'s for some reason, ran this for 1-2 hours without issues

I don't have problems with temperatures, yet I do have a problem with my CPU/motherboard, or maybe the PSU, for some reason XMP never works. However, the system is stable without XMP and CPU voltage manually set to 1.23V

Since returns/changes are painful in Turkey, I've settled with things for now, there is no guarantee replacements won't suffer from the same issue either (Even with the replacement Trident Z's, experienced a shutdown with XMP+Auto motherboard voltages, cause unknown)

PS: Sagol haci :)

If I could do it all over again, I would get 1x SSD + a 2.5" hdd and maybe try to get a better PSU, so not much would change but it would be a simpler/more robust build (RM650i doesn't have any negative reviews but Corsair doesn't seem reliable anymore to me)

G602 is awesome, I periodically get the urge to hoard a spare one, it was initially hard to get used to tho, as I had more of a fingertip grip, with G602 the palm also gently touches the mouse - but after getting used to it, can't go back to smaller mice

As a follow up on the WIFI issue, do you see error logs in "Event Viewer" that are similar to this: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=262420 ?

I don't have WIFI issues, yet I noticed an Intel Network disconnection error that gets logged every once in a while

I built this for gaming, so skipped the backup HDD myself, but with my brother's one, I added a 3TB WD hdd like you suggested, we had to remove the 3.5" bay tho, so taped it to the bottom of the case with a double sided velcro tape (he doesn't backup tho, pretty irresponsible, blows my mind :)

After the build, Raid0 just seems another point of error, I also practically can't update the firmware of the SSD's (might be a good thing too) - the random read/write speeds are pretty much the same too, only lengthy read/write's really benefit from Raid0 (firmware updates are risky, so not updating might be ok., if I need to update, I either have to remove SSD's, connect them to something else, or booth with non-Raid mode into something else, too challenging)

Ah, missed the hwinfo thumbnail, sorry :)

ITX is nice but I really fancied an external temp monitor, there is no agile/small temp monitor tho, no place for regular temp monitor's with ITX's, it would have been great having a small screen around that pulls the temps from hwinfo (a second monitor might work too, but don't have space)

Anyway, your "gameboost" values are interesting, normally the min voltage is 1.264 in idle, 1.29 on my brother's motherboard, the mobo even takes things to 1.4V's easily, I think the "gameboost" is actually stabilising things in your case (my values are from an 6700K tho, so they might not match)

61C is pretty stable tho, I guess water cooling does it's job well, I skipped water cooling as I was afraid of the issues :)

I was actually considering getting a fan controller, but ended up enjoying manual control, the lowest setting is extremely silent, while the highest one is hearable, I keep it at low for regular gaming and take it to high for GPU-intensive gaming (I'm used to the button placement now but initially kept on pressing the power button while intending to change the fan setting :)

Since it's winter now, things would even work out with no fans, with the window open, the air is around 10C on the floor, have a natural arctic cooling thing going on this way

Apart from the waiting and stuff, Turkey is actually not that bad, there is a fixed 20% customs fee, things usually go smoother than this

Similarly, I recently felt sorry for those who are in Brazil, after reading a guy getting taxed $220 for a $140 keyboard, made me appreciate what I have here :)

Really admire US consumerism tho

That's good news indeed

I'm using the 1.34 BIOS, got them from the forums staff, however, the 1.0, 1.2, 1.34 all seem the same to me

Going to try XMP+Auto voltages again some time, maybe today, as I'm curious, I will just see whether the system is stable and return back to my cool+stable setup: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/6Nbj4D (probably just run another Cinebench, maybe some quick memtesting, and back to stable/safe values)

I suggest you check the temps/power usage with hwinfo64, when you leave motherboard/BIOS alone, it really boosts the CPU/voltages for no gain, there was a skylake review a while ago that compared auto motherboard settings and pre-set voltages, I forgot the link, yet the result was that the voltage should be set manually, to reduce the power usage and heating

Read about your wi-fi issues, we don't have any wi-fi issues with the 2 builds, it sounds like a very disturbing issue, even if you RMA the wi-fi card, re-attaching the card will be challenging, especially since the system is built

A very dirty solution would be to get a USB wi-fi dongle

Keep in mind that all MSI software has to be avoided, just install the drivers, leave everything else, it might fix your issue (I just installed the network/wifi/chipset/me/rapid-storage drivers, got some of them directly from intel)

Let me know if you have mem/CPU issues, might be worth looking: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=262420 (Setting the CPU Voltage explicitly to 1.2V's makes things way cooler)

It's up to you, I'm personally running the CPU at 1.23V and DRAM at stock/1.2V

After my Corsair Dominator's failed and caused the system to randomly BSOD, I switched to Trident Z's, even though they are aimed at OC'ers, I run them at stock 1.2V's

The reasoning is purely stability, I assume they screen/build these high end RAM's better, so I choose them

Without faulty components, XMP+Auto's seem to work too, but no need to add those extra temps and stress things to extremes

I didn't even attempt to XMP+Auto yet with my new RAM's, I will run things at safe zones for 2-3 months until I build to courage to risk instability again
