Red and Black AMD Extreme Build

Description

This has been a continuous build over a few months now. I decided to post it, because it is entering its final stages. This machine is honestly a beast through and through. Hope you guys enjoy! Please do not hesitate to ask any questions in the comments!

You will notice that the 2 Kraken G10s and the 2 H90s are not yet installed. That is because the second Kraken G10 has not arrived yet. As some of you might know, NZXT was bombed with preorders for this item because it was the first of its kind which has been mass manufactured. So, my second order is delayed even more now. Once I install the rest of the parts, I will update this with new pictures.

Also, for some reason, on the parts list, the PSU is labeled just an AX1200. I actually have an AX1200i. Corsair Link is amazing with this product. You can monitor all of the voltages for each device and the total power out and power in for the whole system.

The only reason why I rated the graphics cards 4/5 is because they become unstable under certain overclocks and it is kind of annoying but other than that they are great.

Edit: The Krakens have arrived and have been installed! Pictures to come tonight!

4/28/14 Edit: Kraken pictures are finally up! Sorry for the delay.

06/03/14 Edit: New ram has been installed. Upgraded from my 4x4 Mushkin Kit to a 2x8 Crucial Ballistix Elite Kit. CL9 9-9-9-27 Blazing fast! I plan to get another kit soon to total 32 gigs.

7/23/14 Edit: Posted a picture of the 6 display setup. :)

That f&$%ng setup man... wow!

Too many people on this AMD hate-train. Imma +1 you!

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 5 points 6 months ago

oh yea lol and tell me about it... haha more cores ftw!

 
 
Akut [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

have you hit 6Ghz yet? I have a buddy who owns the same processor with an H100i and he can hit 5.8 stable single threaded, 5.6 across all cores. He wants to know where his chip stands compared to others.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Not yet. What are his voltages for a stable 5.6 run? Also, what board is he running on?

 
 
B-Wootang [1 Build] 0 points 1 month ago

yup the AMD hate-train is massive and for no reason really. Like the ford vs Chevy debate. I bet you'd be a bunch of up-votes higher if it wasn't for it.

+1 here.

 
 
zabb74 [1 Build] 6 points 6 months ago

This is possibly the sexiest Corsair Air 540 build that I've seen so far.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

That was my goal..... lol :)

 
 
sprinter461 [3 Builds] 2 points 4 months ago

Yeah I'll second that. I generally do NOT like that case, not my style...but this makes it look good. I could live with this. ;)

 
 
Silvake 5 points 6 months ago

Probably the best AMD build I have ever seen.

 
 
Wizzzz 4 points 6 months ago

Holly! what on earth do you do to need this?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 10 points 6 months ago

I do some extreme gaming, especially with 3-way eyefinity. This was meant to be a computer that will last a long time and always do whatever I need. Also, possibly bragging rights between friends... lol

 
 
Wizzzz 6 points 6 months ago

well then i think you have them outplayed sir

 
 
Fishfam 5 points 6 months ago

He better not need this for Minecraft. :P

skemble [17 Builds] 4 points 6 months ago

This thing is sexy! I bet this thing is going to look even more so when you get the G10s in there! Have you done any overclocking on the 9590?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 4 points 6 months ago

I know! I have overclocked a little bit, but I need to play with the voltages a little more to stabilize it better. I've gotten it up to around 5Ghz currently.

 
 
skemble [17 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

What voltage did you set to run at 5?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

Varied around 1.52 - 1.6 depending on other factors.

 
 
skemble [17 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

I have run my 8350 at 1.525 to get to 4.8, benchmarking purposes only, but I unfortunately didn't get the golden 5.0 chip.

 
 
Jason_Anderson 4 points 6 months ago

Nice looking build. Just 1 question, why not a 4770K?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 8 points 6 months ago

Because more cores...

lol but seriously, I wanted to go for a total AMD build because it is slightly less expensive and it is on the same level or better as the 4770K. Also, it can be pushed farther, easier.

 
 
scorch883 1 point 3 months ago

but it makes sense being an AMD BUILD not INTEL

 
 
scorch883 0 points 3 months ago

i like your pc but thats not true

 
 
Cryllic [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

For gaming purposes it is totally true, it may be about %5 -%7 behind in some games or even more with a select few, but for gaming purposes it is pretty much right there with a 4770k. Now for most of your synthetic benchmarks the 4770k is way ahead, and most encoding it is also way ahead. However for the stated purpose of extreme gaming the 9590 is not a slouch and it fits with the theme the builder wanted. Hats off sir for your excellent build.

 
 
nada190 [3 Builds] 3 points 6 months ago

Now this is a REAL AMD build. Also ditch those speakers and setup something better, but hey that's just me, if my room was that awesome.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

They are actually pretty good for the price... 40 bucks lol Not much of an audio guy, but I will probably upgrade later. lol

 
 
18hockey [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

Please for the love of god tell me you overclock that bad boy.

Also, custom loop in the future?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

haha oh yes of course!

And possibly... I estimated out all the parts I would need and it came out to be just under 800 bucks... ugh lol

 
 
ThePersonDotCom 2 points 6 months ago

This thing is beyond epic, Great part selection, but I would've chosen a different 140mm AIO. The CM Nepton 140XL is a much better 140mm AIO, it's solid black, better fans, and comes stock in push/pull, and it's relatively new, so naturally, the software's most likely better. I wish every waking second that I had gotten it over my Kraken X40. That said, this is a great, well-chosen, well-executed build.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Thanks! The only reason why I went with the H90 was because it was relatively inexpensive compared to the other options and I was trying to stay with Corsair as much as I could. Also, any watercooling on a GPU will be better than the stock fans and heatsink.

 
 
Apach3 [2 Builds] 2 points 6 months ago

"extreme" and "AMD" are not usually in the same sentence when describing a build, but in this case yeah it's pretty extreme :D

did you really pay $1060 for two HD7970s? my impression is that you bought them when they first came out and not recently, because goodness gracious how the price has gone up on them!

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 4 points 6 months ago

I had to make a statement! lol

And no. I did not pay that much for the two, I would never! haha I got the first one for 300 and the second one for 400. I did not modify the prices to match what I actually bought them for. I will try to do that now.

 
 
Apach3 [2 Builds] 1 point 6 months ago

i kinda had a feeling you didn't pay such an obscene post-mining price tag, so that's good to hear.

 
 
motomitch 2 points 6 months ago

oh my glob this build is beautiful

 
 
LoaderFabi 2 points 5 months ago

Boy, THATS an awesome AMD Build :D But I think the case is more for Server... Buy a HDD-Bay, put it next to the case und it looks like a Server from a movie. Aaaaaand the Idea whith the fourth Screen is pretty awesome :D Sleeved Cables, Red Board, Red Cables, Red CaseFans, RED EVERYTHING. But I think an Asus VideoCard would make the Black'n'Red optics better :D

Hope you understand my bad english :D

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 5 months ago

It is an amazing case! I will post some pictures tonight. I finally was able to install my 2 G10's bringing up the build to fully red and black. :)

 
 
LoaderFabi 2 points 5 months ago

Ohhhh Daaaamn :D

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

Sorry about not posting more pics. I got distracted then and have been really busy with work etc. I will make sure I post today during lunch lol

 
 
LoaderFabi 1 point 4 months ago

You're kidding me? A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!! More Custom- More Red :D

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 18 days ago

I basically just did what you said... lol I got an 8 bay RAID tower and its sitting on top of the case. I plan to give it a red and black color scheme soon!

 
 
LoaderFabi 1 point 9 days ago

Haha, okay. Just saying. Looks like a little Server with an Drive bay :D

Have fun with that. I wish I had the dough to buy such a monster +1

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 6 months ago

Keep in mind this was not a buy everything at once build. I acquired the parts over a time with a full time job that pays extremely well. lol

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

But, I do admit it was a big chunk of change.

 
 
Fangarai [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

This build is truly a beauty. Love the red scheme. +1

 
 
CarterBond [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

When you get the G10s you should put heatsinks on the ram. It might help some.

 
 
YodelingTerror 1 point 6 months ago

Wow, awesome. But why the 60hz monitors? Are you using this for gaming or no?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I did not want to drop too much on a nice monitor setup. They are smooth enough for me. lol and Yes, I am.

 
 
YodelingTerror 1 point 6 months ago

So they are adequate for gaming? I'm wondering cuz I need a new monitor and I want to know what refresh rate I need.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

I am not a firm believer of the idea that you can see over approx 75fps. So, for me they are absolutely perfect. Especially being IPS Panels. My friend has a 120hz monitor and I do not notice any difference... lol If you want to read some research on this here is a link: http://amo.net/NT/02-21-01FPS.html

 
 
YodelingTerror 1 point 6 months ago

Ok cool. All I wanted to know. Ty for the link

Why 2 optical drives?

And for some reason, I really want to see a custom loop in this

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I clone a lot of discs so it's really covinient. And me too...! lol

 
 
Se1fD3struct1on [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

why is one 7970 more expensive than the other?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I got the first one before the price jump for AMD cards. I got the second one after the jump off ebay.

robertpal [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

hmm can u tell me how much power u consume and pay for month? the only reason that I do not like a Amd build is for power consumption, which in my country is pretty high. Thank's !

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I honestly have no idea. I am currently in a coop program in college so I never have to pay for my own power. I do kind of want to measure it though.

 
 
robertpal [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

Thank's.. when u do find the power consumption between AMD and Intel let me know please ! thank's. ! there are kinda a small devices to mesure power consumtions.. but it's like 20 bucks a piece :(

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 5 months ago

Well just for starters:

AMD 7970 GPU Max Power Draw is 335 Watts while the Nvidia 780Ti is 250 Watts.

AMD 9590 CPU Max Power Draw is 220 Watts while the Intel 4770K is 84 Watts.

 
 
robertpal [1 Build] 1 point 5 months ago

jesus , big difference :(. this data are under load or idle , or just data from somewhere? thank's!

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 5 months ago

These are all official under full load numbers.

 
 
robertpal [1 Build] 0 points 5 months ago

thank you ! I went for the i7 4770k .Hope it was the good choice ! :)

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 5 months ago

It is an amazing and powerful chip! It is definitely worth it.

 
 
Cryllic [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

the 4770k can draw a lot more than just 84watts btw. There are reviews showing an OC'd 4770k 4.5ghz using about 160. Of course that being said it is still not as much as the 9590 at stock and the 9590 can of course draw more as well.

 
 
gmos 1 point 6 months ago

SWEET!

 
 
BlastXin 1 point 6 months ago

The boxed shape case looks definitely cool with red color, but I wouldn't put that on a desk compared to a tower. I want to know, why do you need dual optical drives?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

I clone a lot of discs for multiple reasons. Mainly to distribute programs to friends, etc.

 
 
bigapplepietart 1 point 5 months ago

EPIC! Duuuude that's sick!

 
 
Pencil465b 1 point 5 months ago

how quiet are those AF140's? Im consitering in buying some. Nice build btw! :3

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 5 months ago

At 100% they are amazingly quiet! Compared to the SP's they are a worlds difference but with still great air flow.

TheGamingRepublic 1 point 5 months ago

how do the 7970's run games on ultra

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 5 months ago

Amazing if the games are optimized for crossfire...! Smooth 60fps for everything.

cough Titanfall...

MorlanV [1 Build] 1 point 5 months ago

I'm not a fan of AMD, infact I dislike AMD, but I really enjoy this entire setup. I love the case, it looks great with the red LED fans, especially hidden by the mesh next to the DVD drives.

I doubt this could run turbotax I hear it takes a 16 core opteron

Great build. Torn between the Air 540 or the Corsair 750D.

 
 
godofchuck [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

I don't know why everyone ******* about AMD. Now I will concede that i think the 9590 is a bit of a black sheep, horribly hot and inefficient with no real place in the market right now. But the majority of AMDs processors are well priced and very competitive, especially if all you are doing is gaming. My rig has an 8350k. replaced my 3570k when i started streaming. I get the slightly better fps on most games while streaming, and its a cheaper processor.

 
 
infinitemerald 1 point 4 months ago

Wow, those Krakens make the build look even more beautiful! Keep up the amazing work, my friend :D

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

Thanks! I just installed the NZXT Hue so you know... infinite colors!! lol

P.S. If you get it and your blue leds don't work... Don't get pissed like I did and just flip the connector to the led strip haha

 
 
infinitemerald 1 point 4 months ago

XD So is it working fine now?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

Yes thankfully. After reading some articles online (after I had already fixed it), I found that there is apparently a tiny arrow that is supposed to be lined up with the positive terminal on the strip. But who reads the instructions anyways... lol

Basically there are four terminals in the cable. 1.) +5v 2.) Red Control 3.) Green Control 4.) Blue Control

When you flip the connector the power cable goes to the blue (which means you don't get control over the blue). Then the controls for the red and green are flipped (which I also noticed). And finally, the whole strip is greatly dimmed because the power cable is not properly hooked up.

 
 
infinitemerald 1 point 4 months ago

lol, I can see what you did now. Anyways, good build!

 
 
theproadam 1 point 4 months ago

Why does 1 Video card cost more than the other?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 4 months ago

I got the less expensive one before the crypto currency craze (before the price jump for all AMD cards).

 
 
Sambishop 1 point 3 months ago

Is the back fan a intake ?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 3 months ago

No, it is exhaust.

 
 
Sambishop 1 point 3 months ago

Many you should switch to intake to get more air for the rads

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 3 months ago

Now that I think about it, that would be a good idea to get more airflow to the top rad. thanks!

 
 
Sambishop 2 points 3 months ago

Hey your welcome that's what this community is for :)

 
 
TheGamingRepublic 1 point 3 months ago

am in a sort of dilemma here and i was hoping someone could help me preferably you kots1010. i want to build a pc i am using 2 evga 780 sc acx with 6gb vram not in sli. well here is the problem i have 3 monitors in the build but i can not decide on 144hz or 60hz 144hz is so expensive but i have heard is very smooth but the monitors you use i have heard look very nice and that i don't need 144hz so what should i get and how do you like the monitors? thank you. permalink parent delete reply

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 3 months ago

If you have the money to drop on three 144hz monitors then by all means go ahead and get them! lol 144hz is buttery smooth especially if you have the gpu power to run them fully. But, if you are looking for a more economical way of doing a 3x1 setup then I would definitely recommend the monitors I am using. Yes, they do not have super high refresh rates or super high resolutions, but they work just fine! I absolutely love them and being great IPS panels makes the deal even better. 180 bucks for a brand new one is honestly a steal if you compare them to other similar IPS panels. The only thing bad about them is that they do not have vesa mounts... but a little ingenuity can fix that. lol I have 6 of them right now set up in a 3x2 configuration with a PWR+ 3x2 stand. I basically just used industrial strength velcro and then covered the rest of the mounting bracket with gorilla tape. You can honestly swing the monitor from the vesa bracket, when velcroed and taped, and it will not go anywhere (I have tried lol). The monitors are holding on the stand just perfectly and I have no worries about them holding for the rest of their lives.

Also, why are you not running your 780s in SLI? And does each card have 6gigs of vram or is that 6gigs shared? i.e. 3gigs on each card

 
 
TheGamingRepublic 1 point 3 months ago

each card has 6gigs and thx and i am not running sli cuz i want to split the power of one card to the outer monitors and the power of one card to the center.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

those must be some beast cards and oh that is a good idea! unless you want to play with surround lol

 
 
TheGamingRepublic 1 point 2 months ago

well i think i am going to sli them

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

I think that's the better idea. Considering the two side monitors will not take up near as much resources as the game so there would not be a huge point in dedicating them to their own massive card. Good luck!

 
 
TheGamingRepublic 1 point 2 months ago

plz put up pic of the 6 monitor setup

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

I will be able to on July 12th. I will update then.

 
 
Cryllic [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

The G10 only supports 7970 and 280x with limited support. Just curious if you slapped them and all was good or did you have to order the shims mentioned by NZXT?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

No. I did not have to do anything else with a shim. I actually ordered one just to make sure but I ended up not using it.

 
 
Sh4dow_Ph4ntom [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

well... safe to say i shouldn't build a red/black pc because i'll feel sad that yours just looks like the sex..

Ryo_Hyamaru 1 point 2 months ago

I think he meant in theory not an actual build he did, but that is one sexy BEAST of a machine. How's the temperature on the CPU? I heard the 9590 gets pretty hot even with decent water cooling.

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

At idle, I can get it to around 25 degrees and under load it only goes up to around 60.

 
 
kooldre56 1 point 5 days ago

didnt happen

 
 
SpicyPickle [1 Build] 1 point 1 month ago

Great build, but how did you put the Kraken G10 in without it being a custom part?

Plus one by the way!

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 1 month ago

They added them as a native part if you search it in the upper right corner!

TAZTG [1 Build] 1 point 29 days ago

Love the Red Black Theme, have the same theme in mine. Confused about price difference in your monitors 120 or 149, figuring you picked the 3 up after a price drop. Great Job Man, Don't you just love this case!

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 29 days ago

I first bought 3 brand new and then I decided to buy the next 3 refurbished. They are like brand new so it did not really matter. And Thanks! Yes, I do love this case. So much space and the dual chamber design is amazing. I just wish there were more 3.5" HDD mounts... Also, I love the paint job you did on the mesh of your case! Looks good!

 
 
TAZTG [1 Build] 1 point 26 days ago

Thanks, the mesh was a nice little mod.

 
 
INNUENDO44 [1 Build] 1 point 29 days ago

İs there any important differences between 1600 mhz ram and 1866 mhz ram ? Which one do you recomend ? why ?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 days ago

You only really need 1600 mhz for daily use and even for games. Faster memory speeds really come in handy when you are processing tons of information. But, you need to find a balance between speed and latency if price is a issue for you. The sticks I am running right now are currently 1866 mhz (enough speed for what I need) but they are CL9 9-9-9-27, much faster compared to CL12 for example. The latency is basically the number of nanoseconds that it takes for the next call to a memory address to be made. So, the lower the latency, the more calls you can make in a lesser amount of time. So I guess my question would be what applications are you planning on using your system for because that will depend on what type of memory you want.

I just looked at your build and I assume that is what you are asking about. The ram you have in there right now is perfectly fine for video rendering. Even though it is 1600mhz it is still CL9 so it is still very fast. Yes 1866 would have been more suitable for video rendering but you would not have seen much of a difference between the two running at the same latency.

in corsair web page, there is an information about number of max ram slots. İt says, when it is 1866 mhz ram, you can use only two memory slots. When it is 1600 mhz ram, you can use 2 or 4 memory slots. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vengeance-pro-series-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr3-dram-1866mhz-c9-memory-kit-cmy16gx3m2a1866c9 FAQ and support - Corsair Memory Compatibility with AMD Platform So, Can I use four pcs 1866 mhz ram in 4 slots? Thanks very much.

I see you are also running a 9590 so RAM should have no issue with your system. Websites for RAM compatibility are always super specific and crazy. You kind of just have to go with it and make sure all the basic stuff lines up. For example, my motherboard only has 3 certified to work RAM kits and I am using one that is not on the list and it works fine. The section you are probably talking about deals with overclocking. This is true that you do not want to have all the DIMMS full when overclocking because it allows for a higher overall clock speed of your sticks. However, in your case, you should have no issue achieving 1866 mhz with 4 DIMMS full.

I understand. I can use 4 dımms full in 1866 mhz. Thanks for answer. :)

How did you mount the monitors?

 
 
Kots1010 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 24 days ago

Gorilla Tape

Honestly it's amazing... Do you want me to post a pic? It's a pretty crazy setup. I first had a single monitor. Then I got another two and then I got six. Then, I realized that I would need a way to mount these and the monitors conveniently did not have vesa mounts. So I just found the stand with the flattest and widest vesa mounts and taped the monitors to them. They are not going anywhere. lol
