My build 2014 gaming worstation pc
Absolutely gorgeous! It's a bit of a shame that those 980s don't have back plates. Everything worth $500+ should come with a back plate.
Oooooh I like those! You're right the last one is the best.
That moment when your monitor makes up 1/3 the cost of your build
It's a workstation build, perhaps CAD rendering will hog up most of his CPU/GPU load, therefore an accurate/real-colour display unit would be appropriate for his use.
that's what you get when you do not have a budget.......Priceless! very nice!
Oooo... that's a nice machine. I'd love to see more pictures.
I am curious, what do you use this for, aside from gaming?
Nice build, the smudge on the cpu block is bothering me more than it should lol
Ho man I'm really glad I haven't got the chance to experience 4k gaming firsthand. Otherwise I might be tempted to build a rig for it
Very Clean Build +1 for cable management and it looks amazing you chose very high quality items. Good Job! (I'de think it would look even better with sleeved cables... that is optional though)
Wow, awesome build. Expensive monitor though, but I'm sure you had your reasons
Just curious, how do you like that monitor?
Im hopping the only reason this monitor is so expensive is because its like a 10 bit panel.
Nothing out of the ordinary (except the price). But this is truly a reference to builders everywhere. The cable management is neat, it is perfectly balanced and really pretty in his red color scheme. Chapeau!
Got a link to the lighting LEDs you used?
Heres a link for basically the same LEDs that he used but on Amazon in the good ol USA, and this LED strip gives more color options and allows you to program your own patterns/fades etc
Their technically designed to be plugged into a power brick and an outlet, but with easy modification they can be powered off your PSU. That link above are the exact kit I bought bc it doesnt come with the power supply which you wouldnt need anyways since your using them for a computer. There are kits available the come with the power brick as well for a few bucks more.
The kit comes with 16ft of LED strip lighting that can be cut every 3 inches so essentially one LED kit gives you enough for prob 2-3 computer builds.
Heres a link to my build and you can see how I set them up in my Corsair Air240 case.
Let me know if you have any questions and I can explain the minor modifications you have to do to power them with a PSU
Thanks for the link. I'll look in to this. 16 feet seems like a bit overkill though, no?
Without a doubt 16 ft is overkill, I only used about 3.5 ft for my build, but for only $20, and having the ability to change the look of your computer to any color you want with a remote is well worth it. Remember that these aren't necessarily designed for a computer. A lot of people use these for lighting in their house or for lighting under their kitchen cabinets.
Like I said, you prob have enough for 2-3 builds, or you can use them for anything else that you want to put back-lighting on. You can buy another remote and receiver on Amazon for less than $4 bucks. I live with 2 of my friends and we used the leftover lighting that I had and put back-lighting on the bottom edge of our shuffleboard table that we have in our basement and it looks really cool.
Sounds cool. So I'm guessing you can cut it in to strips? It looks like you ran them up the top and both sides of your case? A foot on each plane and then daisy chained them to the PSU?
Oh god, back to this.
i7 with Corsair AIO.
Dual *80 GPUs,
Damn, bruh, if I was you, I would've gone for 2 more SSDs and "maybe" 2 Asus ROG monitors, and definitely a better CPU.
Well, don't forget; It's not all about gaming for him. He's going to rather have the 5k than possibly two 4k monitors, as it is a way higher (although 4k is still great) resolution for content creation, for a partial workstation use. However, I do see your point with it may be a little absurd if he was doing more gaming, and a little creation. It could go either way, but it's mainly personal preference. However, I can agree with your opinion about the C.P.U. and S.S.D. +1 for your comment, sir. :)
Wow dat rich and the 4k scaling dou.
Sweet, odd harddrive setup
I like how they did the powersupply gpu connector sleeves, that's pretty unique and creative! And how is the ddr4 memory?
Awesome crisp photos!
its like 99% absolutely beautiful! i would change that brown fan that being used for exhaust tho, kinda ruins the whole color scheme. epic build otherwise!
Yeah I really dig this and thanks for the LED tips. One question I have, why the Rampage V Extreme MB? 16x / 8x for 2-way SLI? Someone recommended to me the X99 Deluxe and an i7 5830k for 16x / 16x on the two way 980s?
Shouldn't he have that Rad in a 'push/pull' config? Or did you run out of money because of the noctua's
Dang, son, that's a beast! You'll never bottleneck XD. Have you been able to oc the cpu? To how much?
this makes my I7 4790K/GTX980 build look like crap! *drools
Thank you guys for your comments!
alexis, CPu overlock : 4,4 Ghz
vano, I use it mostly for photo/video editing
This is beauty.
everything is nice but that brown fan bothers me
