Description

My daily gaming rig. Built to be overkill but honestly a laptop could be overkill for my gaming. Cpu overclock to 4.5 ghz under surprising lower voltages than projected and stable. Memory running at 3200mhz @ 1.35 volts. Cas 14 So far everything has functioned great from the nvme ssd to the cpu. No qcode errors or bios problems Only component i do not like is the 750d its horrible for cable management. And lighting. Cpu stays cold and performs great, as expected. Motherboard is a breeze for overclocking and expansion obviously. Gpus of course stay chilled and scored 26,000 so far as my highest firestrike score(with nothing overclocked))

Build delayed longer haveny custom loop parts from xspc and ek and my cablemod cables but amazon ate **** and sent the wrong product so im still waiting on the case

Must be nice to be able to spend $7,000+ because you're bored

Beautiful PC, should last you a long while.

Curious though, why did you opt for the 980 Ti's versus 1080's or even 1070's?

While I have no problem admitting I am more than a little jealous that you have that kind of money to spend just by being bored, I feel like that maybe you should have waited until later to post when you could have put in a bunch of descriptions of the parts, your rating of each part, and overall the process you went though with this.

I personally enjoy a person's story of building the PC about as much as the PC itself. The only reason I mention it is you were able to upload a bunch of pictures and keep a constant eye on the comments mentioned here, so it stands to reason you have at least some free time right now, and that you could've posted some more information.

But that's just my opinion. It's a very pretty build.

I plan on doing that just work A LOT so when i get a minute im on here and reddit, trust me ive done numerous benchmarks and tests and have my opinion on everything and im going to share along with my overclocks and etc.. Was just kind of un called for the whole conversation with triggered ..

mods really need to ban this kids from commenting stuff like this with the 'attitude' and stuff like that. I Personally find the parts selection and finish of the build shows you are a PC enthusiast I mean you have to be somewhat enthusiastic about it if you invested 7k into it.

Only thing to recommend is zip ties and a better description but I personally like it. At the end of the day No-one should expect hardware **** from anyone on this Forum. We all build PC's for what we want them to do and we share them because we are proud of using them, not to be told we have a bad attitude towards the community for having a great PC.

I hope she purs well!

Thank you sir! I have the cables decent for now waiting on my combs before i did the final touches and i agree no one should catch crap especially on mid-high end builds unless they just mess something up horribly.

How do you like the 900d? I thought the 750d would be a better fit than it is, its rly crowded, i have a caselabs sma8 that i just got in the mail yesterday finally for my 5960x build, but i cant justify buying another for this build. Hows the room on the solid panel side for running cables i have to push my side panel closed and hold it while i put my screws in and its driving me nuts.

  • 36 months ago

I have to admit I hate the 900D, Corsair sent it damaged and were asking me to pay all shipping costs to send it back to them, internationally at the time too because im from the UK and the RMA point at the time was in the netherlands.

It's quite good in a lot of aspects but quality control and more features could've been thought of for the price.

To be honest I only needed the 750D but I was on the mind set that I had to break my bank account.

Cable routing has enough room, more than enough. BUT I'm not running as many cables as you, Easily has enough room if you zip tie it all together and manage it properly though, unlike me. I mean I'm not there to showcase my PC I just wanted something that'd work well with the components, thinking of switching cooler though the silverstone sounds like a jet. Might go to a Noctua.

The SMA8 should have enough room to live in too lol. Can't wait to see what you do with the 5960, though question, why the 5960x with when the 6900 is a thing?:) Hope it all goes alright.

Got the 5960x for $400 from a friend who bought it to put in a build but didnt get to putting it together for about 2 months and he couldnt return it when he realized it wasnt compatible.

Nothing uncompatable, if you are going to build this, I would prob get an i7 4700k cause why not if your spending around 2k, if your looking to save money, I would prob change motherboard to this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Q9Gj4D/asus-motherboard-z170a

6700k lol mb XD

Seems to be all together. However, I might get a 600 or 650 watt PSU just to give plenty of headroom. But everything seems to be in order. though for that price, you may be able to get an even better case. The Fractal Define R5 is a great case and really quiet (I have one). It's currently on sale on NCIX Canada for $109.99. It would save you some money and be dead silent. But if you want that case .... then you are all set with your build. Good luck. Hope it helps

very nice build :) I am jealous of the performance gains you will have over my build. I have the same SLI set-up as you, but in a 900D. you had asked before about space in the 900D I can say that it has lots of cable management options on the back, plenty of space if you route the cables properly.

I Actually just had all the remaining parts come in for my build. I've been running it on air for the last year. hopefully I'll have some time within the next month, and I can switch it all over to PETG loop.

Your build looks great so congratulations on it! But is the K70 a thin board? I heard reviews about saying it is very thin and if it is then I will personally not even consider it. Please Answer
