My Crazy 3 way SLI GPU/CPU Water Cooled Gaming PC Build - 3 GTX 780 (FINISHED page 4,5) (more Benchmarks pg 10)


Recommended Posts

Ok so here is some early testing with my graphics cards slightly overclocked. I have not overclocked the CPU yet. My BIOS version is different then the one i been studying and i gotta find a way to bypass the "turbo" mode and keep it at (for example) 4.6 rather then have the pc start at 3.7 and "ramp it up" for me. (if you understand what i am saying). Anyway, i am on it later. No hurry, i am clearly a 1 percenter now. Check out my benchmarks.

Unigine Heaven with EVERYTHING cranked up to the max.

3dMark 11 Firestrike in basic mode

3dmark 11 Firestrike in extreme (X) mode

Feel free to hit up these links and see all the details much better. I know there is room for improvement but DAMN is all i gotta say! and lets game too LOL!

i am not sure my gpu ever broke 40 deg and my cpu i don't think it broke 50 (except on unigine heaven and it BARELY broke 50)

Damn, it's not as easy as just disabling the Turbo Boost and upping the multiplier? I'm not trying to say it as though you didn't already check that, I'm genuinely curious as I'm not familiar with the BIOS of those boards. I do know with my Gigabyte it was that simple, though (granted I'm not running any sort of cooling like you are :P). I could also be misunderstanding what you're trying to do.

I only ask this because I know NOTHING about computers and water cooling....so all the captain know it all's can tone it down and take it easy. But now that you have the enclose water cooling system and you mentioned you are going to be adding more water to the resevoir to top it off, how do you add the fluid without getting the water everywhere since all the tubing is full already. Is there just a port on the top of the resevoir to add fluid or how do you go about that??? Just curious as I am assuming now that it is an enclosed system it has to be harder to add fluid as opposed to when you didn't have the fluid in the tubes already and could just use that length to add it outside of the computer. (If that makes sense.)

Firm believer in letting my cars do my talking!

You can't rush quality, it doesn't happen overnight. Quality takes time and dedication, but the end results more than pay for it.

there is an inlet at the top of the reservoir. I have a fitting, a hose and a funnel...just pour it in very carefully and that is it. Close the inlet when done....and done! Already did it. No more turbulence, no more micro bubbles, it is perfect now. My CPU and my GPU's idle between 23c and 25c. On full load during gaming, with my GPUs overclocked i can reach mid 40c tops. On benchmarking tests (even heavier load) my temps reach between 47-52c TOPS. When i had 2 GTX 780's on air, they both reached mid 70's creeping on 80c. So 30 degree's difference is NICE! When the game (or benchmark) stops, the temps drop like a rock. It's a really good setup, i love it! :D

nope that didn't work. On previous version's of my bios, that is all you needed to do. This one is just different enough to f#ck me. LOL...I can disable turbo mode and "sync all cores" to 4.6g (for example) but it will still be 3.7 and work it's way up to 4.6 when needed. That's nice technology and all, eco friendly i guess.....but i have no idea when it's actually overclocking itself i just have to hope it is. That sucks. I am gonna get that handled though probably today. It's just a few settings i haven't figured out yet.

Interesting. Was wondering how you would unhook one of those tubes and not spill shit everywhere! LMAO

Does it fluctuate inside the OS? If so, it might be a power setting. In the control panel, if the "Power Options" is available, go in there and in the advanced settings in the Edit Plan Settings, there's a category for "Processor power management". For my Balanced profile, Minimum processor state is 5% and it allows fluctuation in CPU clock. For High performance, it's at 100% and doesn't fluctuate at all.

Lemme know if that helps. :P

Edit: You can check CPU clock in Windows VIA CoreTemp, if you aren't already familiar with it. :)
