Description

I wanted a future proof PC that I can use for high end gaming as well as high speed video creation.

I've always wanted to build my own PC but looking inside a computer, everything always looked so daunting. I YouTubed the hell out of how it's done and got hooked on Linus Tech Tips videos. After watching hours of videos and revisiting my PC Part Picker List every day for about two weeks to make tweaks to items after doing more research, I was confident in the parts I'd chosen.

I will edit this description once I have set up the Overclocking and have given it a really hard time with some high game graphics.

Uummmmmmmmmmmmmmm I don't think ur allowed to have such an awsome build on this website because they tend to make people drool. Please take it off.

Insane build! Definitely will CRUSH games and content creation. +1

I can't see clearly but in pic #1 It looks like the hoses from the CPU cooler to the radiator are sitting on the GPU radiator fan shroud. I have seen before where the fan vibrations will actually wear a hole in a hose like that, you might want to see if you can reroute that if it is touching.

Thanks for your concern man. All good though, no coolers are touching any fans. I'll take some better close-up photos soon.

All four fans on your radiators are intaking air, so unless you've got a filter on the other side of the radiators, I'd recommend flipping the fans around.

Personally, I would have gone with a mid-range graphics card and waited for next-gen Nvidia or AMD cards to come out. In any event, great build. I'm sure it will serve you well.

Welcome to the PC Master Race.

GPU isn't even in the first slot, lower ones aren't usually wired for x16

CRS10114 7 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Not sure what that has to do with what I said, but all five slots on that motherboard are x16 slots.

grundlemuncher 1 point 19 months ago

Only slots 1 and 4 on this board are wired for x16, look at the images on newegg. Having a full connector doesn't mean it's there. Another problem with having your gpu on the bottom with other things on top of it is that it doesn't have lane priority. If a component doesn't get enough/any lanes it will run slow or be disabled.

CRS10114 7 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

I know having a full connector doesn't mean it's there, but if you check MSI's website or even Newegg's specification tab, it says that there are 5 x16 lanes.

I also know about lane priority, but I sincerely doubt that that will be a problem considering OP has a 5960X. I totally agree that it should be in the top slot regardless, but that's up to OP.

In one word....scrumptious.

great build!

49ers 2 points 39 months ago

Very high end build. A lot of very expensive parts in there. Nice build for you.

Bor3alis 1 point 39 months ago

Why did you go for the Titan X over the 980ti? Was there a specific application?

juanra1409 1 Build 4 points 39 months ago

Isn't "Beast" Hardware enough of an explanation? haha

Bor3alis 1 point 39 months ago

You are correct XD

******* you even managed to spend 12 pounds on your thermal paste, and 75 pounds on a blu-ray drive???? defo an awesome build though. +1

GOD LIKE

Are you going to overclock at all?

alphamachina 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

The only thing you're missing is M.2. I would have gone with at least a Samsung 950 PRO 512GB x4 PCIE for the OS drive. Makes loading large apps and what not an instantaneous thing. Windows 10 comes up within a second after POST. It's just.. better. Other than that, this is a ridiculous build.

UnicornWarriorrr 1 point 38 months ago

Wow it's been a while since I've seen a RAM cooler(because dominator is so expensive) +1 great build!

Gojirha 1 point 38 months ago

Why would you pay so much for ram?

killakable77 1 point 38 months ago

When one pays for more than what something is actually worth, is usually just simply "because they could".

Rendon84 1 point 38 months ago

I could jack off to this

Rendon84 1 point 38 months ago

Have u OCed yet? What is the performance regardless?

M@rcusM@n 1 point 37 months ago

Two things. Did you just win the lottery? And that is extremely overpowered. I am drooling.

_elliotwalsh_ 1 point 7 months ago

Damn bro, looks nice. Great work

Because of the X. It refers for eXtreme in most cases. No, i dont mean those cases. Beast. Its a beast.
