Yep, I'm using the stock fans. Keeping voltage on adaptive seems to be keeping the temps down. The PSU is definitely too much but I saw a good local deal and couldn't resist. But who knows, maybe having a massive PSU is what's given me the bump in OC. My previous system had a Corsair AX850. The EVGA is also dead silent which is nice.

really? i guess with a 240 rad it can get pretty silent (even more so in push/pull) i asked because the stock fans on the h80i sound like a helicopter, i  fixed it with push pull noctua's in order to be completely silent and my temps even improved  (both fans were running the same rpm) and adaptive voltage is the best option for oc as a fixed voltage will constantly run that voltage through your cpu causing very high temps even when you just browse on the web

Oops. the H100 isn't silent, I meant the PSU. For anything non-gaming, my refrigerator is louder than the H100i, but during games the fans do spin up a good bit but not helicopter level. I had a Noctua D14 so I'm used to quiet cooling and the H100i isn't too bad at all.

I am pretty sure it is your GPU.........

For me, my H100 is always on idle no matter what.

I just cannot find any game that can stress my CPU at all.

If you ahve ivy bridge, they are so cool I think you can even passive cool them.........

Case: Corsair 500R

Mobo: Z87 Extreme4

CPU: i5-4670k

Cooler: CM 212 Hyper Evo

Ram: 2x4 GB Corsair Vengeance LP

GPU: EVGA GTX760

I might bump up to 16gb total but for now this computer is more than I really need. It's running a dual screen but might go triple if I can get a bigger desk. It's basically for light gaming, music, watching movies and that kind of stuff.

With the current cost of DDR3, I wouldn't bother unless you're running into major limtations with 8GB.

my DDR3 use to cost more than $500 for just 6G. (well, it is long time ago, but still fast DDR3 cost a lot)

I think for memory, speed is more important than capacity, anything bigger than 8G is just for virtual machines or other server applications.

ECC RDIMMs are still expensive -- I have 12 x 2GB in my server (HP ProLiant DL380 G6, 2 x X5560), but just about zero Head-Fiers should care about that. As far as speed vs.capacity is concerned, it's really a toss up in terms of what your applications require. Many modern applications benefit near-zero from speed increases (or timing decreases) -- the only time it starts to become even semi-relevant is if you're doing a ton of file compression, or transcoding video all the time. Capacity should, in 2014, be the number one priority when buying memory. Why? Because modern platforms simply don't benefit from spending 400 dollars on hand-selected ICs that are binned on God's lap. What does matter is that having more memory is almost never a bad thing, and some people really do need it. I've had 6x7 film scans (drum, not flatbed) come back well over 2GB a piece. When those are popped into Photoshop for editing, you can bet I'm glad to have ample memory so I don't impede workflow by writing to disk all the time. I'll spare the rest of the dorkery unless someone has any outlying questions (I am SA by trade, large-scale consultant by night :ph34r:, so feel free to toss anything my way).

Or copious amounts of tabs on chrome :tongue_smile:

I don't know about you guys, but I like to have 20+ tabs open on Chrome for one monitor, a computer game running on the second monitor, and a HD movie running on the third monitor/TV to keep others entertained. The TV plays the movie audio, and I have Foobar configured to run music through my headphone setup. Finally, Folding@Home uses the remaining CPU/GPU power!

 

It's the only way to justify my 16 GB of ram...yeah, that's it.

post #2022 of 2089

I do have 4 monitors, and foobar is always on one of them (I have 3 feeding 3 different sources, depends on mood, I will pick up different phones and setups)

I never close my Firefox which always have close to 20 tabs pin and lock on it:P (Sometimes I tend to open some videos and let it load at background while I am gaming)

I game on 3D surround as well. (Most of time just 2D with 3 monitor set to 120Hz).

 

And I think 12G is way too much already................

I think my GPU is the first one to scream while all my other PC parts remain idle. Before I upgrade my RAM, the VRAM will be the first thing to consider upgrading. I am pretty sure Windows 7 is best optimized for 8G which already have enough page tables to manage everything. As long as you are not doing extreme stuff like encoding 4K video from raw data into mp4 with highest compression rate.
