Description

Here's my latest build, with a case swap! Courtesy of Corsair James and a huge thank you to him and Corsair George!

As y'all can see, all visible cables are fully sleeved. The only one I didn't sleeve was the power to the front panel connector which powers the fan controller. I made sure that cable wasn't visible. ;)

I am also a zip tie freak. I overuse the hell out of them. So, I decided to go a different route and try securing cables with paracord instead. I'd like to say it came out fantastically, but I'm not sure yet. It's still a heck of a lot better than throwing zip ties everywhere. It's quite a bit more gentle on my sleeving, that's for sure.

If y'all have any questions, please let me know! I hope you enjoy this album. The cables took such a long time to do!

Also, it appears PCPP placed the pictures out of order. If you guys would like to see full sized versions, head on over to my imgur album!

Same here, ive been on here and seen some really powerful builds but this one is just beautiful. The color scheme is so nice, even down to the ssd's interweaving between evo and pro. Nice build, 10/10 will always be jealous.

I'm not exaggerating, and this is of no offence to the other watercooled/nicely sleeved builds on this site but

This is the best build I've seen so far. Congratulations. You are extremely lucky to have had someone do such an amazing sleeving job for you. I also really like the idea of using paracord instead of zipties; I am horrible with zipties and cannot use them properly so this is something i must try.

Oh, and are you going to use the OC panel for the R4BE?

If only I could afford a wall of 840 SSDs like you can...

  • 66 months ago

I actually did this sleeving. I was just throwing a plug for my own site. ;)

As for the OC Panel, I'll install it eventually.

Also, thanks for the comments! Greatly appreciated.

Nice! All the more reason to praise your work.

$199 is a bit on the expensive side methinks, but the sleeving does look quite good? Is it paracord?

I'm planning on doing paracord sometime this summer or end of year.

It's more time consuming. As long as I've been sleeving, I've learned all this ins and outs of it and can ensure that I make perfect sleeves. Even so, people think sleeving cables is so easy, but there's so many things to do, including soldering and making sure that your pin-out is correct. One mistake and you can fry your PSU or one of the your components.

What will you be using this beast for? Still can't play watchdogs on ultra. Haha

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

actually this build most likely can. A 780 is powerful enough to so a 780 ti most certainly can.

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

On ultra, watchdogs uses around 3.5 gb which is over your 780 ti's and even with a card that has enough vram you experience immense stuttering on ultra including an r9 295x2. Maybe in future patches or driver updates it will be fixed. You will be able to run it 60+ fps on ultra but the stuttering will kill you.

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

Then explain me how i play it on a 780 on ultra setting with no lag and stuttering? Sometimes real world application doesn't work according to whats on paper.

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

I get a poop ton of visual lag and stuttering. It's an issue with SLI. You're fine on ULTRA on a single card. This also happens to me when I disable SLI, but it's a hassle to do that everytime I want to fire up W_D.

  • 66 months ago
  • 1 point

Makes sense. My personal rig is a crossfired 280x and it can barley handle high settings when crossfired. However on a rig I built for a friend with an Asus 780, it runs watchdogs lag free on ultra.

Lovely build, quite an attractive aesthetic.

One question that occurred to me was why, with a budget this high, did you go with that model of RAM? The timings/frequency on that particular kit make it Corsair's least Dominator efficient package, as far as I'm aware. Was it just for the reliable nature of a quad channel kit, each stick having been tested along with the others?

  • 65 months ago
  • 2 points

It wasn't a set budget I had in mind, a lot of the parts here were scavenged from my previous builds. Apart from the CPU, mobo, video cards and the case, was taken from old builds and reused. So you could say that this was a build I did over time. I ended up here. I just got a new case and I'm already working on migrating my current hardware into that.

As for the RAM, I traded in my 4x4GB (16GB) 2133 mhz kit for the 32GB 4x8GB kit. I needed more ram. Speed doesn't matter to me all too much after 1866, as I can OC this ram up to 2133 mhz anyways.

That's a nice idea to use paracord shell for cable management on the back! Also, seeing everything spaced out like this seems very optimal for cooling and airflow since your graphic cards aren't right next to each others like we see in many other builds. Also, the orientation of the SSDs is very smart, I've never seen this case before but it certainly was designed to answer the client's needs. Nice build, once again something that I would like to have if I had this money.

I have a question about this build. I'm considering the same build with the same CPU cooler. I'm concerned about the top mounting of the radiator with this case. Do you have the fans exhausting out? Do you also have the top magnetic vent cover in place? I'm worried about dust without it in place, and at the same time, I'm worried about air flow if you do have the top covering the vent holes.

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

Make sure you remove the top cover. If you leave the top cover on, it will overheat your cooler. I know because I did this by accident hahaha. Yes, my H105 was in exhaust because I already had two large 140s as intakes up front.

why wouldn't you just get a 1tb ssd instead of 4 250gb ssd's save a little money and maybe upgrade the graphics cards a bit also you wont need a 1200w power supply for that i would say a 500w one would be fine and you would have been able to save that money and upgrade something else

Dat budget...

Very nice build; mine is similar based on a i7-3930. Not to diminish your masterpiece - it is great. But a few items I question. Why are you not OCing the CPU - I've got my 3930 up to 4.6Ghz with ease. Also, with quad SSDs there is very little reason NOT to put them into RAID 10 mode; you get double the R/W and the data redundancy/rebuild like I've done and it does make a difference both in data security and speed. Also, why the AX1200 and not the AX1200i with the controller? And, why only 32GB when that MOB support 64GB? You could use more than half of 64GB RAM as a screaming RAMdisk (I've done that with the same Corsair 1866 Plat sticks - its worth every penny). Another oddity - I see you mixed SSDs - why not all EVOs or pros? I only question these things b/c you've pretty much gone all out like I have - but could have gone the rest of the mile pretty easily.

No, not really. I don't have to do any of that. Going by your thought process, why not go 4960x? Why not go quad Titans? Why not go all 1TB SSDs? Why not go AX1500i?

There's a budget that most people meet. There's also parts pulled from other builds. There was a lot of thought that went into this build, but half of it was used from previous builds. I only picked up the AX1200i a month after I posted this build. It didn't even matter anymore.

At the end of the day, there was a certain budget that I set and I met that budget. Going any higher meets diminishing returns and would've lost money for an extremely marginal increase.

Thank you for the comment though and have a great day.

I doubt SSD's get faster in speed when in a RAID it has been often proven that SSD's in RAID actually move slower than their max rated speeds. If your SSD's showed such a huge difference in speed from their max rated speeds I would like to see those specs. The only reason to even consider a RAID for SSD's is for redundancy. Otherwise you could just save the trouble and simply just back your one SSD to a large HDD and thats all she wrote and it's much less a hassle to simply clone a storage device than to RAID them nowadays.

You can ask any true professional in the field. RAID itself is hardly even considered for back up or redundancy purposes anymore. It's just still widely used in home. The commercial world already moved on as should we. That was years ago from today btw. As for using 64GB of RAM for no reason at all I am sure the OP would love to spend the extra $400+ dollars an extra 32GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum would cost to slap some awesome games on that PC. Especially consider that nothing on earth as far as SOFTWARE or VIDEO GAMES will see any benefit beyond 32GB. That is in speed and in multitasking purposes. After 32GB it better be trying to work with Algorythms and Physics or a huge "RAM" intensive server. Heck in your average work place most servers don't even have more than 24GB.

Another note is perhaps the OP simply wanted to tell apart what SSD's he/she is using for what purposes without having to mark them or label them when the machine is not running and he/she is messing with/tinkering around with other things, if need be. There are such things as a $4K budget btw and a $5K budget. Heck even businesses that drop tens of thousands of dollars on computer equipment for big things have a budget too. Also the OP has a very good point by dimishing returns. No software the OP will EVER buy for the relecance of the generation of DDR3/X79/4gen Intel i7 K series will ever see a performance improvement for the dollar ratio that makes any sense to go beyond 1866MHz CL9 DDR3, 6 core i7 on and X79 platform. After this point the return is literally less than 1% and there are plenty of benchmarks to prove it.

Price to performance wise his build is perfect for it's generation after after serveral years there is no point to increase it's RAM or processing power unless the OP simply considers an entirely new build of compltely new gen parts such as DDR4 and X99. Even then the performance improvement would have to be justified for his/her purpose at that time and moment! Hope this answers everyone's question and trumps the mystery why high end builds like this are quite literally very well planned out logically. Lavins I know this because my build is very similar to yours only I have GTX 670 ($GB VRAM) FTW's. Different brand RAM one large SSD and I plan to clone it to a simple HDD of similar capacity when the time is rigth!

I actually have my own file server so anything I need to store is in there. I also do incremental backups so I never really lose anything. I wanted to keep this build as light and as clean as possible.

Wasn't really suspicious. There have been quite a few people here and look at all the comments.
