Description

If you enjoy this Computer. Check out all the videos I made and recorded for building purposes On Youtube

Here is my Google +

The Collection of Photos from the Build

If you want to see my log of how I built it (It's at the bottom on the Overclock.net Link)

Wanted to build a computer on the X99 Platform to showcase Building skills and Create a computer ready for 2160p. Tons of Modifying and painting, Started to collect parts in Nov. Changed Orange due to a possible conflict with the Solder in the Rads, Orange was turning to dark. Went with Blue Pastel to symbolize Intels Colour, and Green for Nvidia Colour.

I have Dual loops due to not wanting heat from one Component affecting the Other.

Temps as of Now:

Test Run on Ambients of 26.6c (80f) Realbench 2.4 30min Stress Test

Max Temp on Cores ( 62C) Max Temp on Top Card was 45C (Bottom Card was 43C)

5930k Overclocked to 4.25Ghz (125 Strap x 34 Multi) Using 1.2Core V XMP Enabled for Corsair Dom Plat 4 x 4Gb Sticks @ 2666Mhz Evga 980 Superclocked (1366Mhz top Clock factory Speed) Top Card In Loop Evga 980 SC (Bottom Card in Loop)

After Playing The Witcher 3 for Over 7 Hours Straight:

Max Temp on Cores were 55C Max Temp on (Top Card) 50C Max Temp on (Bottom Card) 45C

I need to re-seat the Top GPU in the waterblock, the thermal paste didn't spread good obviously. I should only have a 2C difference inbetween the top and bottom card.

Gpus are Run in Parallel. Named Build "The Division" For Tom Clancy's Game that is postponed until 2016 Now.

Entire Build Log Can be found On Overclock.net. The Link to Go there

The Cautious One

The First computer I built was 2 years Go I think in June of 2013 that I rebuilt a couple times when I started looking into watercooling. Quite the Journey.

This computer was quite a trip to build and took quite a while since each part was expensive. I had to work and ration away 500$ here and 1000$ there but we did it. I got every part I wanted and left nothing to spare.

Current FPS at 1440p on Ultra with everything on The Witcher 3 is 60FPS average. 70FPS here and 50FPS there. But average is 60FPS which is great. I think that If I went 2160P I would need another 980 for 3way sli.

After 7 hours of gaming the Max Core temp on processor was 55C and Ambients were 26.6C. If the ambients were to drop to.... 21C (70F) then my max temps would drop around 5C

Mr. Manirelli. I appreciate the Kind words. Pcpartpicker is the Site I used and still use to gather my thoughts before beginning a build and logging parts in order to see the money spent!

Damn Son... Plus 1

I am still trying to figure out how one would do a dual loop in a case that is NOT a 900D or a Caselabs, every build I see is one of those. Like how white is the new red :D

How did you do the hard tubing?

  • 54 months ago

Do you mean generally speaking "How To Hard Tubing"? Or how did he do his specifically. If the former, https://youtu.be/y2yZsIzHYdg

I am sorry I didn't see this comment earlier. To have dual loops in an Case you will need the Space. The DDC pumps I am using are very small and can be mounted in a ton of places (120mm Fans or Radiators for example) The Loop will need your imagination as well as patience.

This is really the most beautiful build on the entire site!

Congratulations, Thecautiousone!

About the components:

  • Cooling Logic and Case - Great. For some strange reason the CaseLabs cases are not yet included as an option in the PCPartPicker's list of components.

  • CPU and Motherboard - I would rather consider Intel Xeon 1680 v3 and Asus X99-E WS/USB 3.1. That's $1260 more.

  • RAM - Great.

  • Storage - I would rather use Samsung 845DC PRO 400GB for OS and Western Digital RE 4TB for storage. Crucial M500 and Seagate Barracuda are kind of low grade considering that this is an expensive build.

  • GPU - I would rather use 2 x Asus GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Strix. That's $280 more but it's definitely woth it.

  • Fans - I would rather use Noctua NF-A14 FLX 68 CFM, Cooler Master JetFlo 95 CFM or Fractal Design HF14-BK 118 CFM (all of them rated 150 000+ hours and ultra quiet) and in my opinion better than Bitfenix.

Cheers.

Counter-reasoning,

  • For gaming, there was no reason to go Xeon, the Rampage V was 500$ and It was the first time I was ever going to spray-paint a motherboard and take the risk of it not working upon Boot

  • Failure rate of 4tb HDDs are very high right now, 2tb was a great value and the right speed ( 7200rpm) The price difference of Buying Samsung and Crucial are significant for relative Speeds

  • I always Roll with EVGA for GPUS. Plus I needed to Find GPU's that had the option of Original CSQ Blocks to match the Pattern I was shooting for

  • Fans, Once again, Chosen for Aesthetics.

TCO

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

The Samsung and Western Digital I mentioned above are server class stuff. It's not exagarated to say they are from the few disks currently to do the job right in their respective classes without failure. But yes, they really are expensive.

i7 Extreme is a form of entry Xeon, so it is a good deal, if you're looking for multithreaded performance and rendering/recording workstation. The strange thing is that currently i7 4790K is the most powerful single thread CPU. The new i7 6700K costs more, performs a little worse than 4790K, and it's 130W.

Spray-painting a $500 motherboard? Too risky! I thought the PCI-E slots and the big upper capacitor shield were factory-made white. BTW there are some special Asus mobo editions that are all white/gray and are areally good for aesthetic builds.

Cheers.

It's the Game. I have a black screen every once in a while. It's not because it's on ultra thats for sure. Some people have probs, others do not. It is very inconsistent at this point.

Next patch is 1.05 and I am used GOG to get it for free with one of my 980s. So I don't have to use something to run the program. Just launches off of the Computer.

  • 54 months ago

To answer your question of why, it's to make you realize you can build a great computer if that is what you want! Take your time and think of how it should look, draw a visual and use the measurments from people who have the case and find out the layout! Get something quality that will outlast all the others.

You flatter me with "MR" I'm only 26. ;)

only question, why a 240rad for the GPUs and a 480rad for the cpu? what kind of overclocking are you doing on this thing?

  • 54 months ago
  • 1 point

Actually the CPU has a 480mm in the Main compartment (On the Roof) and a 240mm Rad in the Lower compartment. The Gpu has the 480mm Rad in the Lower comparment and the 240mm rad in the Main Compartment ;)

They Have equal rad space. The Processor runs at 4.25Ghz But I have already OC'd it to 4.5Ghz with 1.3Core V. My 4.25Ghz OC is for 24/7 Use.

Oh boy, what a build! This looks absolutely awsome! So, what color are you using on your CPU loop? Is it red or blue? Either way it looks freaking gorgeous. Is that a chipset water block? If it is, did you run the system without the chipset block? If you did, was it a big boost in overclocking or overall temperatures of the system? Hope you answer and congratulations, it's really an awesome PC.

  • 54 months ago
  • 1 point

1.THe Cpu loop is Staying Blue 2. It is a chipset block for the RVE motherboard By Ek 3. I have yet to run the system without it, Installed it before the First boot up. 4. The Chipset Wateblock is to cool the Vrm's of the Board. So I cannot answer the question pertaining to an advancement in OCing due to the Chipset block.

The X99 Asus Socket has extra pins in order to Overclock more and transfer more voltage if need be.

55C while Gaming 500mhz Faster than stock turbo clock speed? You think that is hot? The Ambients in the house were 80F (26.6C)

I ran a stress test with the same ambient temps at Default settings and no OC. The Max core temp after 15min of Realbench at 100% Load was 48C.

The Cautious One.

80-90C is dangerous territory. I am 25-35C away. Plenty of headroom.

I run my 4770k (Delidded) at 4.5Ghz using 1.275Core V and while gaming at the same Ambients (26C) my max temps while gaming are 78C with 2 less cores than the 5930k.

That way when I am gaming (On the 1440p monitor) I can watch all temps and Processor Usage

Remember in 980 SLI on the 1440p I am averaging 65Fps on Ultra (The Witcher 3) So the One monitor to game on isn't Overkill
