    Re: The Long Awaited Return to Desktop - Build Log

    Awesome! I installed my 6700k this evening. Did a quick 4.8mhz OC. Runs amazing.

    Did you have to tweak the voltage at all to achieve 4.8GHz? Or is that running on stock voltage? I'm eager to see how far I can get the chip to go on stock voltage this weekend. Will aim for between 4.5/4.6GHz to start with

    I'm surprised it would auto adjust that high.
    Over 1.45 is asking for trouble. Try finding a stable clock at around 1.4 for a bit of extra safety.
    My Rig: is good enough to play the games.

    Nice build. A interesting vid for you to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNAMxZgvves

    Only critisisms - 1)Get reusable velcro for the cable management. 2)That screen.. You prob spent 20-25K on everything , but that screen just ruins it :P

    Thanks for the feedback

    In response:

    1) I have an entire bag (plus a spare) of cable ties that resides permanently in my tool kit. I need to get through them somehow xD

    2) Yes, the monitor is disgusting... However, it's been my old faithful that I've had for several years now. Do not worry though, I will be purchasing something a little more "gaming oriented" in December

    P.S. GPU temps and chassis heat are not an issue with my build. The idle temperature of my GPU is 21-22 degrees Celsius, with a ceiling of around 54-56 degrees under max load. As for CPU, it sits at 23-24 on idle and a max of 40-44 under load. Will be interesting to see if any of this changes once I receive my Cosmos C700P in the coming weeks.
