Making X58 last a bit longer in 2018

So decided to update my x58 based super pc to 2017, done a few upgrades on stuff that was bugging me


So here is the ole case and dust with awesome and well routed cables that i spent a lot of time on

1 - Antec 1200 case which is loud and about 8 years old now swapped out for a nice Corsair Crystal 570x RGB and a few extra SP120 Fans

2 - Its been De Dusted - aka the cpu cooler was a bit clogged up so a good clean and motherboard cleanse + new thermal paste etc.

3 - a nice new Nvidia GTX 1060 instead of crossfire radeons 5770s and a gtx 950 ive also had in there.

4 - USB 3 been added via pci express add in card.  Its nice to have USB3, even media pc which is an amd 860k, a88x  has usb3 and type c included but x58 is a bit older, but still nice to copy stuff a lot faster to nas from usb hdds20180108_221450thumbjpga0568837732ab0b776402704979817b0jpg


5 - I wanted RGB so got some rgb stripes from deepcool and a remote control, so final look I think aint too bad, apart from cable colours on atx 24 pin and pci 6 pin power cables, and the power supply shroud can only hide so many cables, with rgb and other stuff i had quite a few cables to put in down there and they are mostly hidden, but maybe another sorting is required??

6 - planned next month is cpu going from i7 920 to a nice xeon x5670. Worth it for only 35 quid. Get a decent IPC upgrade. 45nm vs 32nm, and a few more cores and a decent oc shud be gd.


let me know what you think


cheers

    Get one more stick of ram so it will run in triple channel. When it run in triple channel you get 1.5x the frequency of a dual channel ram
    Triple channel ram running in 1600Mhz a dual channel ram would have to be running at 2400Mhz.
    edit: Just seen that you have a 3rd stick of ram did not see it because it was black.
    Motherboard : ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 (8 + 4 Power Phase Design)
    CPU: Intel i5-3570k at 4.7GHz  1.32v
    CPU Cooler: DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240
    Ram: V-Color OC Series 16GB (4x4GB) 2133Mhz 10-11-11-30-1T at 1.550v
    Storage:  ADATA Premier SP550 2.5" 480GB and 2Tb 3.5" Seagate
    Graphic Card: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION
    Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 550 GS
    Mouse: MSI Interceptor
    Keyboard: Corsair K70 Vengeance Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Red
    Monitors : 3x AOC 22" 1080p, 1x Dell 1080p Monitor

  • yep, it can be hard to see, but it runs the same xmp profile speeds and cas latencies as the other sticks so for the moment it shall do

    cheers
