So - if you open loop that glorious thing. Would it be possible to have one circle for both systems? I was thinking about doing that to my system as well.

I'd have called it KOMODO 3000

But I read it anyways. Thanks for the info, both of you guys.

Have you tried a bunch of different distros to run? My ryzen 5 does not seem to like debian (or vice versa)

While the CPU/GPU combination seems a bit strange, at least you've got room for upgrades.

Also, your load temp for the 7700k looks pretty low. 50s at 4.8? When I do an AIDA64 stresstest, the individual cores are all like "WELCOME TO THE SEVENTIES! We are about to hit the dancefloor!" That being said, it had't had any issues, so I guess it's fine.

So you think for some reason that the i3 7100 is "better" than a ryzen 1400, let's break down the specs first, shall we?

The i3-7100 is a dual-core cpu clocking at 3.9 (w/o boost) and with hyperthreading enabled. It is approximately $30.- cheaper than the r5 1400, however it competes with a cpu not even properly comparable to the i3, and additionally not being able to be overclocked.

The R5 1400 is a quad-core CPU clocking at 3.2 at stock with SMT enabled (read 4C/8T). Where the R5 1400 falls short in Clockspeed it makes up with the possibility to OC, going somewhere above 3.5, 3.6 and as high as 4GHz, being able to (in some cases) outdo the usually higher clocked i3.

So here we are now, comparing 2 cores to 4, 4 logicals to 8, running different architecture yet showing performance differences definitely favouring the R5 1400.

Personally i would always go for the R5 in a case like that. Intel's top-game is maxing out FPS for high refresh rate monitors, and this is in the area of a i5-7600k/i7-7700k, and not an i3 at all.

Sorry for the delay here.

It's true, the sound of the fans is really annoying if you use the std. cooling way. Personally I went a different route, and used MSI Afterburner to properly adjust the cooling curve, set a 5° difference for turning off the fans. Being idle, the GPU is dead silent, running it under average load it's acceptable. During my sessions I never exceed 67° with my cooling profile, maxing on about 55-60% fan rpms.

I straight up set the RPM to 100% above 75° - never had that happen once. So yes - using the default curve sucks hard (Fans keep turning on and off and on and off and on and off...) using MSIAB and adjusting it properly tuns that card into a gem.

That being said, I recently hit the EKWB store and went for a custom loop including the GPU. So... I don't hear the fans at all now ;)

Very true. Do you have temperatures and power consumption numbers around?

Mixing an Intel Celeron G1840 with 6 fricking RX470s.

Waaaaat

I could hashcat all day with this :P

The EVGA is loud? Well I suppose under full load that is possible. You might be right :)

for such a small case, wouldn't something like the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC be a bit... more nice? I mean, not that you are going to change it now, just a thought.

Almost exact same build ;) (z270 instead of 170, 7700k instead of 6700k, ASUS ROG Strix 1080 instead of EVGA FTW...)

All I gotta say: While the corsair h100i v2 is nice, and silent after tuning... THERE IS SO MUCH CABLES!!! Cable managing a h100i v2 is near impossible.
