Description

Never built a PC before and always wanted to, I had a lot of fun working on this build and I really like it, it does everything I ask of it with no issues whatsoever.

This system is used as an all-around PC for gaming, video rendering, media server, and music.

It's hooked up to an Edifier S730 2.1 system for sound, I changed out the satellite speakers for a set of ELAC B6 speakers and it definitely sounds much better.

Shout out to 'Paul's Hardware', I learned a lot from watching his YouTube channel and got the idea for this build.

I got them from a guy for half their list price and I really like them, I like a minimalist look and they deliver.

I was going for a minimalist black/white scheme, I may add a water cooling loop.

I've done the same BrutalDeluxe, and very refreshing when done right. That's mine Project Winter War it's set in the Corsair 540 Air, so just a generation/iteration behind of your case. I do like your taste though, but I couldn't justify having all that power for my single 27" monitor. The single 1070 on my own works just just fine.

Thanks, very pleased with how it turned out, I really love turning up all the fans to100% and listening to those fans whuuuurr n wooosh. See even under load my fan curve won't kick in untill they're 60c so its mostly the only way I get to see them light up :P

Why does the full tower look small to me, im sorry if im rude im just new and always watching some cool build so i can gst the thinking for my 1st build. I like to observe.

Its a cube case, its wider than regular towers giving the illusion of it being smaller in the pictures without showing something for size scale. To me though it looks like a regular case that got stretched sideways because of how the fins around the case are done. I once thought about a cube case for one of my builds but decided to get a more regular one due to where I planned to keep the PC.

Why the 6850K instead of a Ryzen chip? Overall it's still beautiful build.

I got a deal on it and it does what I need it to do, may go AMD on my next build.

It's pretty nice, though I would've gone for Ryzen 1700 then overclock it to 3.9-4.1 Ghz. You get more performance out of it for ~150$ less.

SLIing 1080TIs is a bad idea. It will see diminished performance in some games. In fact, NVIDIA is slowly cutting support for SLI. For other operations that benefit from multi-GPUs but not in SLI, it will see increase performance.

Build still looks really nice, but I'd thought I'd give my critiques.

I researched SLI and I really like the look of the 2 video cards, it's true that some games don't support it but when they do it can't be beat.

Yeah, but even with games with SLI support, it's really only benefitting for weaker or older cards. The 1080ti isn't something NVIDIA is trying to SLI-optimize

Do the 1080ti's get hot?

No, but I have not really put them under much stress, I will document if I have any issues.

Hi i want to build my workstation with similar specs, i will use x99 deluxe2 and dual 1080ti and i also need the thunderbolt port for high speed external RAID drive for 4k/6k editing.

So this x99 deluxe 2 is coming with a free ex3 thunderbolt 3 card. Can you tell me when you install 2x 1080 ti, is it still a room for that thunderbolt card ? when you install the card together with dual 1080, will the thunderbolt work perfectly ? any problem ?

Thanks a lot.

I did not use the T-Bolt 3 card but I think there may be room under the bottom GPU.
