Description

This build was completed over ~7-8 months, slowly building it, testing parts, upgrading, etc. I'll be upgrading to a 4690K this summer to put use of my Maximus Ranger and Liqtech 240. Speaking of which, this CPU cooler has the perhaps worst mounting system i've ever seen. It's completely silent, no pump noise and it's rigid as hell, fins are impossible to bend, but it's pretty much all ruined by the fact that the holes on the radiator don't match up with any of my fans. None of the included, nor my SP120Ls. I had to use extra thin screws in one of the corners on each fan just to mount it. But, i got it mounted, and it works. God help me when i have to put a 4690K in there.

Something to note, obviously, is that SLI setups are expensive, and the 770 setup here is loud, just as pretty much any other setup. No coil whine though, pretty nice. 750D is a tad big though, but i won't change it. It's got gr8/8 watercooling support, which i'll probably take use of someday.

Also, hi.

Just out of curiosity but why the 770s and not the 970s? Maybe I'm missing something tjough? Either way it looks awesome!

You, sir, can cable manage.

So here are my conclusions.

You are either a witch, or a sorcerist. (I think that's a thing.)

+1, this cable management is magical.

Any power problems from using duel 770 on a 750w psu, all be it a very good powers supply. The reason i ask is because I am considering sli'ing two 970's on that same psu. P.S. I love to see people use that liquid cooler, i think it is very underused for how great it is. I don't entirely understand how the holes wouldn't match up but, and how that effects anything because its hard to picture in my mind.

There haven't been any immediate problems. There's been a single time where i put a lot of stress on it, and the fan turned on, albeit on a slow RPM. Absolutely no problem, i know a guy with two damn 780s running with this. He can't OC, but 2 770s run just fine. Mine are running at 1111 MHz just fine, PSU fan never turns on, not even during games.

Thanks for the in-depth response. Looks like I will have no trouble with the 970's given that they have such a small power draw in comparison the the 780's.

If I was you I would wait till Broadwell comes, tad bit better temps and stuff like that.

"This build was completed over ~7-8 months" The 970s didn't come out until like September and who knows when he/she bought the cards

The Formula VII should be able to handle dual GPUs and a soundcard just fine, if you put the GPU in the first red slot, the second in the second red slot and the soundcard right above the second red slot.
