Dabadger84K this is the point where I'm starting my campaign to get +1s on ModRigs & get eVGA to post THIS system instead of the absolute garbage temporary monstrosity they posted on Twitter/Instagram etc of mine... https://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=42891 - any and all plus ones are appreciated folks! So here's the screenies I actually made sure are PROPER screenshots: Port Royal 15668: https://www.3dmark.com/pr/1028885 The fact that that was with the CPU at absolutely STOCK WITH no PBO blows my mind. Time Spy 21919: https://www.3dmark.com/spy/20183189 These were both done with the CPU at 4.7GHz. Time Spy Extreme: 11790 https://www.3dmark.com/spy/20183335 As you can see, Time Spy won't run at as high of clocks as PR at the same voltages, and I didn't really want to push any further... my VRAM literally will not do 1500. I tried with 1.41625V and it actually ARTIFACTED in PR then failed out of it. 1400 will run multiple runs without crashing as long as I let the GPU cool down a bit between runs though. 1300 is very stable in both benchmarks with no voltage increase on the VRAM over stock.
alpharius194I really hope EVGA honors my hydrocopper version queue spot because it’s a different sku. Convinced someone that dropping the 2k for a card that you will get in a month is better than buying a pre-built for $4100 (ekwb does make a nice looking pre-built though but their parts choice is mediocre at best) for a 3080. I want to compare the two when I put mine together with my own pads and paste.
alpharius194Ya I’m hopefully in the next batch for just the block. Need to finalize whether I’m switching over to hardline now. I bought the fittings but am getting cold feet about leaving my pc out of commission while I experiment with bends
alpharius194That’s why I went with the alphacool radiators that have a drain in the bottom, it makes my life so much easier after having built one with other radiators. I actually made soft tubing look really nice on the build I put together for my brother, mine looks like ass in comparison but I was lazy and did the tubes first cut. Using angled fittings on his I actually made it look very clean.As for the loop order I’m in the same boat as you but understand jayz2¢‘s logic of the difference is minuscule due to the pump cycling the whole loop multiple times a minute with a D5. Idk if I will change my loop order though I have a hard time believing there’s absolutely no difference.
Dabadger84Just found the 2x8 version of the kit that is $20 cheaper for 2 in comparison to the 4x8... but then the whole "the secondary timings may be different for 2 vs 4" so meh. Decisions decisions.
alpharius194Just ordered my block, did you replace the pads with all 1mm thick? Excited/nervous to pull my first gpu apart. Have to order some black angled fittings now and some new pads and start plotting how to clean my messy cables up
alpharius194Edit: dang alphacool and fujipoly pads seem to top out at 1.5mm
CptT95I bought two kits of 2 x 8gb and they had sequential serial numbers, fresh from the factory, and are basically a 4 x 8gb set
alpharius194I could see 13 at 1.5 and maybe 12 at a real dram OC voltage. I don’t think GSkill is releasing these kits in their new royal elite scheme but the textured heat-spreader is so cool. I think the only 4000 kit is 1.4v for CL16 with loose secondary timings

alpharius194They finally Got the right build up on Twitter lol my block arrived today. Just waiting on some angled fittings so I can clean everything up and my thermal pads to arrive. Said F it and bought thermal grizzly 2mm and thermalright 2mm pads so I can compare size/squishiness to the stock pads

Start in small steps so you don’t run into post issues. Ram sticks are binned. I personally wouldn’t jump from 3200-3800 the first try. Maybe try a spot between 32-36, try 36 and then try 38. I took too much of a chunk out on an Aorus B550 and had to disassemble half the pc to pull the battery and reset the cmos. They weren’t Samsung B-die though, I haven’t had Samsung ram crash that hard but it definitely wasn’t fun to deal with.
