Standard SLI build with some tricks and tweaks here and there :)
Main purpose: Gaming (2K - 3K DSR to 1080p) - depending on a game performance (60FPS) Secondary: Photoshop and 3D
The i7 4790K is overclock (when gaming) to 4.7GHz with 1.28V (Stable) - Temps around 60° - 70° Celsius.
Did the CPU backplate cooling mod as I always use to do it in my previous builds - idle temps stay the same, but under load it benefits from ~6° - 10° Celsius lower temps. Fan speed set manually to ~850 RPM (silent)
Corsair Air 540 is perfect for this mod as it can accommodate not only a small heatsink (like in my old builds) but the whole i7 stock cooler. I had to remove the SSD cage - didn't need it anyway. I've also removed the 5.25' bay cage - not using CDs,DVDs etc. since few years now. Cable management is super clean&easy in this case.
Made some custom dust filters (used thick black cardboard + black netting + magnetic strips + resprayed black) - overall I've spent probably less than £3 - £4...I've seen some dust filters sets for this type of case selling for £60 - £80! - seriously? :)
Also ordered a Plexi LED backlit (well...."sidelit":)) backplate for my top GTX 970 (my own design) - made by advertising company in Poland....and 6 "M2x20" screws to secure the backplate + pvc clear tube to make about 6mm distance between the card and backplate (£ peanuts:))
Designed, printed and double-side taped some stickers/labels for SLI bridge connector, back of the Fans and HDD.
I've used one of the PCI slot cover as a support bracket for GPUs - just to take off some weight stress form PCI slots. Painted rest of the PCI slot covers in red and covered the holes with black cable ties :)
Got the black&white case matching Roccat Tyon Mouse and Logitech keyboard (waterproof - because you newer know hehe:)
......and just gaming :)
p.s SLI Bridge is just a temp solution until "MSI gaming SLI bridge" is released somewhere mid June this year according to MSI customer service.
May the Force be with You....and Me :)
Edit: I forgot to mention that quite often I hook up my "red dragon" with Optoma HD141X FULL HD projector to enjoy 100 and more inches screen....it's really worth it!
Edit2: Both GTX's can go up 180-190 MHz on GPU and 450-480 MHz on Memory. (Temps around 60°-63°) Not keeping them OC as there is no reason for this for now :)
Edit3: Uploaded new photos: Cable management using cable combs and Dust Filters - closer look.
Edit4: Finally My Build is Complete. Just added the missing element: MSI GAMING SLI BRIDGE. I've been in contact with MSI Customer Service ever since the product has been announced and got notified when it finally became available in UK. It's Solid, it's Gorgeous, It's Perfect in any way! Love it! :) New photos uploaded!
