Description

Work gave me a hefty hardware budget for setting up a VR development environment. This is the build I spec'd out. The rendering of complex scenes in Unreal engine is amazing with the 18 core power of the i9-7980xe. Also the maxed out RAM makes quick work of large environments. I am hoping to incorporate some Real time ray tracing into the simulations to make the lighting and visuals really "pop".

The setup was a breeze. MOBO fit into case without any hassle. All fan mounting was simple and holes matched up. The ATX was a little close to the second HDD (bay holder?) so i removed one and found a nice spot for an additional fan underneath (using as an exhaust fan downwards. ( I guess i could use it to draw in cooler air from the ground, but i worry about introducing low lying FOD into the case... but I Digress). CableMod Cable kit is awesome, the combs are pre-installed and can be moved to just the right spot making for a clean build.

I'm going to be setting all colors on the MOBO to the company colors in a slow "rotating wheel" just to give it that professional look. (RGB seems tacky for a fortune 500 company). Probably going to send the side door out for a Laser engraving for the final finishing touches.

The first boot up was successful using almost all components, and just waiting on two last packages to ship.... (M.2 SSD & OS) & RTX2080ti.

$11,000 and no pictures -____-

The only picture you have shows a GTX 1080ti instead of the RTX you have listed.

The PCPP gods are weeping.

how does that H100i v2 handle the 7980xe and how much RAM actually gets used when using Unreal? nice build btw where do you work that you get to build something like this?

I have had no issues OC to 4.5 GHz the temp is <60 °C for a whole 3d Mark Benchmark. ... and i cant really say.... yet hehehe

that's not too bad. let me know when you use it with unreal because I am curious how much RAM it uses.

You want to swap out all the Fans with Corsair ML series, Trust me :)

Very Nice Rig.. Glad to see someone else is rocking the 760T, you don't see many new builds doing that..

They do have a point, you might wanna go 280 or even 360 Rad for that Chip if it gets Warm....

Thanks for Sharing !!

Do they provide better airflow? or last longer? just wondering i have a sizable budget remaining..

I really liked how much space the 760T gives! its a very professional looking case and seems to run quite cool. I havent had any issues yet with the chip getting warm at all but then again i havent been using it yet for its intended purpose ... but i know that its going to smoke my personal gear for VR performance...

The ML (Magnetic Levitation) Fans are just must higher quality all around especially in the bearing type. They will provide better air flow at lower noise levels.

Went all Noctua in my Rig last Christmas and have no regrets.
