This is my first post on forums so I would like to give a quick introduction... I am self taught with roughly 20 years of computer experience. I like to think that I am a jack of all trades, master of none.. and this applies to my computer knowledge too.
Still learning all the ins and outs of fine tuning, slowly getting there! Any helpful criticism is welcome, I learn something new every day.
Here is the guide I used mostly for tuning my CPU, RAM and other BIOS settings. I think I found it here in another post. https://xdevs.com/guide/e299ocg/#biosp2
[ PART NUMBERS IN BOLD
MB - [ 151-SX-E299-KR
] EVGA DARK X299
CPU - [ BX80673I99980X
] i9-9980xe @ 4400 MHz x 18 cores
RAM - [ F4-4000C17Q-32GTRS
] G.Skill Trident Z Royal @ 3600 MHz 14-13-13-28 1T (And other changes)
SSD1 -[ SSDPED1D280GASX
] Intel Optane 900P PCIe x4 Interface
SSD2 -[ MZ-V7E250BW
] Samsung 970 EVO M.2 2280
PSU - [ 120-G2-1600-X1
] EVGA 1600W SuperNOVA 80PLUS Gold Series
GFX - [ 08G-P4-3188-KR
] EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8GB with Hybrid Cooler
CPU cooled by 360mm x 60mm EK Radiator, EK basic pump, Supremacy Waterblock on CPU, soft tubing
Corsair 570X Mirror Black Case
With the tuning above, this system scores approximately 10,000 in Cinebench R20. My highest run was 10,600 (@4.8GHz) and average is around 10,200(@4.4GHz).
Temps max around 93C at 4.4GHz. I chose 4.4GHz because it was right in the sweet spot between performance and thermal management.
At 1.25V on Vcore with Adaptive Mode enabled + 1.15V on the VCCIO it runs perfect and my temps are always under 67C.
The AUTO RAM timings were loose, using the guide above and a few other resources I found others who used a Skylake-X chipset running these timings, therefore I just copied them and tried it.. ran a MEMTEST that resulted in zero errors.
I will post more pics, specs, details later tonight
The purple is not very visible in person, the camera can see more black light than my eyes can.. it is much darker plus the tinted mirror finish on the case glass.
Enjoy, leave friendly comments, suggestions, questions below.. PM me the rude ones! (Just kidding haha)
Thanks for reading, hope you liked it, I spent 40 hours on this over Labor Day weekend and worked 6pm-3am, slept til 8am then back to work. Fun times!
