I watched this, it kept me from wanting to upgrade. They have other videos of overclocked performance also.
Of course there are newer and more demanding games out, as always it is up to you if it is worth the upgrade.
Bios is default except XMP for memory.
By CPU install I think you mean cooler install, I am sure it is right. I have redone it over 5 times.
As far as the TIM under the lid, at best I could get 15C but that is at BEST. Probably more like 5 with my luck.
16 GB 1600 Mhz XMP for memory.
I did try overclocking, 4.8 Ghz @ 1.315 was perfectly stable at gaming. Temps were too high for me trying to stress test (95C + 1st minute), that is when I decided to stress at stock and add some GPU load to the mix.
I guess if I was going to run an OC I would...
Voltage is 1.170 max, most of the time it is 1.163.
I have taken the cooler off many times and checked the contact and it seems good.
I loaded optimized defaults and left everything on auto. I am not sure how much it adds to the temps but the iGPU is running a second monitor.
If I run AIDA64...
I upgraded my sons system from a i5 4460 to an i7 4790k. I bought a Phanteks TC14PE to go with it thinking I would get an OC out of it, wow was I wrong.
The case has good airflow, and I have reseatted the cooler many times thinking I did something wrong.
I decided to do a worst case scenario...
Every time I chose AMD it was because it was the cheaper option, with enough performance.
I bought 2 Phenom X4 955 BE's for family members back in 2011, both overclocked well. One still runs @4Ghz all day long. They became long in the tooth in 2015 and I built 3 systems with Intel i5 cpu's. I...
I have had
ATI/AMD 9800XT, 5750, 6850, 280X and 390. 390 was the only card I remember having issues with on install, or any issue at all.
I have also had Nvidia 6800GT, 8800GTS (SLI also) and GTX 770. I can't remember having an issue with any of these.
I have a system here with an R9 390, I can say I am very happy with how it performs @ 1080p in every game it has played. I really don't understand the bashing on the software/driver side for these, I have only had one issue with drivers and that was on install (I am sure others have had issues...
I am not supporting this board at all, I have never used it. It would allow you to use a Xeon and ECC memory. It has not been updated with new Broadwell-E chips on their support page so I guess you would have to contact them. I am sure that there are many more X99 boards out there that can...
If you want it to be gaming stable I would still suggest running stability tests. I started with Aida then Prime 95 and found that I was still not game stable. It went like this.
I was stable @ 4.4 with Aida @ 1.232, Prime95 27.3 (non AVX) @ 1.254 and Arma 3 would crash alot. I got Arma 3...
Some of us came in here to try and help the guy, you haven't offered one idea what it might be. The only thing you have stated is what it is not. I will come back to this thread in a month or so to see if he figured out what the problem was.
I am sorry OP for suggesting something so stupid...
I thought we were getting back on topic but I am mistaken. I have a novel idea.
Why not buy the 450 W of your choice and ship it to the OP. After stating that he used it on an i5 2500k OCed to 4600 Mhz and a 280X OCed, he ran the one he has way out of spec so he is going to need a new one down...
Could we please get back on topic and help the OP.
There have only been 2 ideas posted as to what is wrong. One being the power supply was to weak for his build. That was my first guess because I had a system my kids rammed a pencil into it through the back stopping the fan from moving for god...
Good quality PSU and the one the OP is using are 2 different things.
The OP's PSU is a Sirfa HPM platform.
The 980ti has an amp draw of +\- 38 amps, 5820k @ stock +\- 11.7 amps.
If you run Unigine Heaven on your system with Prime 95 in the background with his PSU you are going to have...
Yes I would start there.
Also, try the PSU in another computer to see if it works fine.
Not to get into a pissing contest but....
Watt = Voltage * Amperage.
The power on the +12V rails is really the most important value.
You need to look at the amps more than the watts. I have 2 i5 systems here, one with an R9 280x and one with an R9 390. Both are running fine with Corsair CX600M psu's. Total amp output on that is 46 amps.
With that said I plan on upgrading them to a Seasonic 650 watt unit...
I think your problem is the PSU.
The Thermaltake Gold 450w I found on Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153227 has a 12V max output current of 37.5 amps.
The R9 380 has a max draw of 28 amps.
Do you have another PSU you can hook up and test and see if that is it?
I am going to quote myself from old threads.
This is after a 15 minute run of real bench.
I am stable @ 4400 Mhz @1.268 V. As you can see temps can be all over the place depending on what test you use. I stopped here, with prime95 27.9 temps where approaching 90 C when stressed...
I MAY be wrong, good OC Cpu's have high leakage. Think Phenom II 42 TWKR, or on the GPU side, Gpu's with a lower ASIC seem to OC well.
Xeon's have low leakage so to get one for a high OC is counter productive.
Getting a Xeon for an average OC with lower voltage than typical seems to be the...
Intel Pentium II 450
AMD Athlon XP 1800+
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ X2
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
AMD 955 BE x2
Intel Core i5-4460 x3
Intel Core i5-4670K
Wow the memories, 3200+ x2 was for First child and I, 955 BE was for first and second child, and 4460 x3 was for 3 kids.
I think you are asking, do I regret buying it? No, it is one hell of a card.
I did have my first AMD driver issue with this card, there was a hot fix or something and it was just one game that had issues. I have bought from green and red for years, 9700 Pro, oh what fun we had.
I have this one, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202148
It is quiet for sure, but the heat it puts out is massive. I had to turn the case fans up to keep everything cool. It has defeated the purpose of having a quiet card. I may have to add more low speed fans in the...
You started a thread on October 6th about this same issue. In that thread I am pretty sure the consensus was that your case and cooler combo were barely capable of the task of cooling your 5930K at the speeds you are trying to get.
There is no...
I have never installed GFE, ever. I never saw a need for it.
I guess if I MUST have a new driver for some unknown reason, I will be forced to install it and register.
The email I will be using.....
If it has to be a Lian Li case you are going to have to drop some cash, you will never be satisfied with the cooling solution you are trying to use in the case you are using.
Case LIAN LI PC-A61WX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112421
Cooling Corsair Hydro...
Your problem is definitely the 7FNWX, the single 140mm intake just kills it's cooling ability. I had one with an AMD 955 BE system that I could never keep cool at 4 Ghz. Switched it to a LIAN LI PC-K65 and it ran all day long for years at 4 Ghz.
When I built my new system in sig, I went a...
This will sound crazy, I am on an older Haswell chip. I was stable @ 4.4 with Aida @ 1.232, Prime95 27.3 (non AVX) @ 1.254 and Arma 3 would crash alot. I got Arma 3 stables @ 1.268. I haven't had a BSOD doing anything else in over a year after this.
I would say if it is stable for what you...
I would not use Prime95 28.5 for Haswell. I bet your CPU voltage is more like 1.35 when using that not 1.25.
This is a link to Prime95 27.9, the same I used on mine. It doesn't have the AVX support and won't cook your CPU. If you find this stable then your CPU voltage may only need a slight...
It could be them memory or the board, using one stick and testing at stock should narrow it down pretty quickly. When I have had bad motherboards or memory the symptoms have been catastrophic, not failed stress tests. Random hard locks and BSOD's, he has not mentioned those signs at all, he just...
