Description

Well this is my second build and I really didn't capture what I wanted to in my first build. So my themes for this build were military, ruggedness, stealth, and sff. When this system is done I hope for it to be a dual boot windows/ Linux system. So I can practice IT stuff and game as well. I test for my network plus exam in a few weeks so hopefully if I pass I'll finish this build as a gift to myself. I named this build redemption because it is a powerful word, and something we could all use.

So the center piece of this build was the case = caselabs bh7 in gunmetal. This case supports supports full sized mother boards and power supplies while keeping a small foot print..Legit

My next decision was very easy x99 sabertooth...I personally tend to favor reliablilty over flash..also aesthetically it fit perfectly

so then I snagged a darkrock TF because no matter how good Noctua is it just looks like dookie. also the height of the cpu coolers were extremely limited so I had like two possible choices I took the be quiet route.

power supply is a seasonic prime 850-titanium rated so I get almost all of the rated power..this might be over kill but I wanted to give amd gpus a chance since I never owned one. I heard they like alot of power. Also they seem to age like wine so it seemed like a better long term out look. hopefully vega comes through strong and it fits fingers crossed.if not blower style nvidia 1080 or 1080 ti

I havent bought the cpu yet because money #1 and im trying to decide is 16x/16x vs 16x/8x is worth the money between the 6800k or the 6850k..maybe you guys could link me to some good articles or share your insight into the matter.

Also m.2 ssd worth it for boot drive or no? tell me about this too

anyways I hope to keep you updated and learn and look at all of your cool builds

UPDATE:

so it has been a long while my buddies I passed my network test..working on S+ test now

heres whats a changed since we last spoke

6850k check

m.2 ssd check with passive aquacomputer heat sink

mg279q check

still waiting on ******* amd vega 1080ti is tempting me but iM HOLDING STRONG I havent even got to mess around with this system yet

Nice color scheme! That CPU cooler looks super cool. Add some more pics dude, show off that setup!

+1, CaseLabs always does the best, don't they?

Man I love those Bullet cases!

M.2 drives are awesome, but maybe not just as a boot drive. You'd really see the benefit if used it for a OS & Programs drive, especially if you use a lot of large programs like CAD, Photoshop etc.

A 6850K is a serious CPU. You'd need to really need it to justify it. A 6800K will satisfy most prosumers.

It's also nice to see someone willing to spend money for a decent PSU. So many people just buy Corsair or EVGA PSUs because they're cheap and don't give a rat's arse about reliability or quality.

Actually Corsair and EVGA make quite a few great power supplies. Sure, neither of them have yet released something that completely matches the PRIME 850W, but at the same time neither of them are pure junk.

Oh definitely! Some of the Corsair AX series PSUs use Seasonic units, and there are also some of the more expensive EVGA units (can't remember which series) that are brilliant too.

It's the cheap and cheerful 750W for £50 units that both manufacturers run off like hot cakes that aren't worth the bother. They just don't contain the same quality components.

This place is a brilliant resource for choosing PSUs.

yeah man they are slick but the bottom compartment is really really tight hopefully once its all assembled nothing goes wrong because you have to take it all apart!The most intensive program I"d probably run is like FL studio, or some kinda of network scanner so I'll trust your guys advice plus it saves money lol! Yeah I did some research it was like unanimous that seasonic was king! hope to chat again soon!

The extra lanes with the 6850 are useless unless you are going to use 3 GPUs or a ton of PCIe cards. Save your money there. You won't saturate PCIe 3.0 x8 with a pascal titan..

M.2 is really overkill for most builds, and a bigger 859 evo is usually the better idea - but the 960 pro is getting fast enough that you actually might feel it. If you're considering it wait for the reviews.

Vega is going to be a while. If you are gaming at 1080p/60 ha, the 970 is okay for a little while longer, but this kind of rig needs a GPU. Rumors have the 1080ti launching in January with Vega 10 launching in June. All depends on how long you are willing to wait.

Only advantage to waiting for vega in my mind is to see how monitor tech advances. Maybe by then we will see some OLED monitors and/or maybe some dp 1.3 resolution/speed panels.

Hey thanks so much for the insight on the pcie lanes. I think you guys have convinced me to just ride out with the 6800K. Its just hard because Im a stickler on details. dude if vega is in June i'll freaking die! why would they do something like that that's seriously too much time to wait.!!!!!!!

...earliest is June. They are having production issues on their 14nm process. Look at how inefficient Polaris is compared to pascal. For vega to run with the 1080 ti, it will have to come in around 500W.

damn bro you just killed my vibe...I kinda thought since nvidia seems to be pushing cards out kinda fast that perhaps nvidia has knowledge of amds product and is countering..but that could just be my take on it.

I can see youve purchased a metric buttload of expensive stuff already, gonna have to subsist off a diet of ramen and diet water. But youve certainly got a GREAT parts list, no scrubs / scab parts or stock coolers on this!

Also just FYI if you're running windows 10 and have the anniversary update then you have the ability to run the bash command line from within windows. Dont know if that helps your situation or not but just food for thought.

How are the be quiet! SilentWings 3 PWM High-Speed Fans? I'm having trouble deciding whether to get the High-Speeds or the regular SilentWings 3.

hey I have no idea yet but i can try them out in my current rig for ill send you a message. Id say it would depend on your case and build tbh. I chose the highspeed because of higher static pressure my case is cramped

hey jerry! I actually commented on your video about it..so yeah shout out to jerry neutrons you tube video !!!also i have no idea how im going to tighten the bolts with the thermal amour

If you hold the wrench at a 45 degree angle that can sometimes work. Also do it without your RAM and GPU installed. Otherwise getting an angled wrench from a different CPU cooler if you have one would probably work best

Ah, I see what you mean... Looks like you CPU cooler doesn't provide much in the way of "discreet" cabling.

Or are you having problems in the bottom of the case too? I always recommend binding each length of cable up to the shortest possible length, so each set of cables in the back is very clear and not weaving in and out of one another.

Yay CaseLabs! Congrats man.
