Hi peeps

Hi all.

 

Just came across this forum. I wouldn't call my rig extreme, but it's as extreme as my budget allowed for a few years back. Maximus VIII Hero, 16 GB RAM, GTX 1060. I mainly browse, work on the database for gpuzoo.com and use my spare GPU cycles for [email protected] and World Community Grid, and most of my spare CPU time for wcg. Hoping for a major upgrade when I clear all my credit accounts 🙂

 

Looking forward to getting to know the community here.

  • Thanks 6

What CPU are you using? Doing any overclocking?

i7 6700K. That is currently not overclocked, as it's been too hot here, although I plan to water cool it with chilled water soon, and will overclock as far as I can without going over 40C. The GPU is overclocked - core by 137 MHz, memory by 140 MHz, voltage and current limit by 5%.

 

I hope to upgrade to Ryzen 3 (or better if available when I've cleared my current debts) and a mainstream NVidia card next year. Not sure exactly what I'll be getting yet, but the best that I can.

Are you looking for any advise on overclocking?

Not at the moment, thanks. I like to experiment. Had the fastest watercooled i7 2700K on hwbot at one time. Doubt it remained the fastest for long though, I think my best was 5.1 GHz

 

Hoping to be receiving a GTX 1080 Ti in the next few days, for folding on after I benchmark it and settle on a long term overclock (probably watercooled with chilled water)

What did you have to do to get a 1080Ti?
