Description

Hey all! I'm back with another build. This build was completed last month, but now I have the chance to show it off! These parts are a mix of new and older parts, but still configured for a decent system. The Mobo, Ram, Cooler, Case, PSU, and Storage is all new, the GPU's and CPU were previously used, they were just dust collectors on my shelf and I decided to put them to use. Kalio has been stuck with a Macbook for gaming and has been needing an upgrade, and this is what was put together. Hope you all enjoy :>!

Intel Xeon E3 - 1241 v3 - Very efficient quad core, can't OC, but it does have 4 physical cores and 8 threads, so gaming isn't an issue. The virtual cores will also help with any workload he will do :), 3.9 Ghz turbo doesn't hurt either!

Corsair H100i GTX - Pretty straightforward cooler, didn't need an AIO for this system, but its what he wanted just in case he decides to upgrade ;)

Sabertooth Mark S - Sweet looking motherboard. Really enjoy the features included with this mobo, and it has an awesome color and the armor is hefty and nice.

HyperX Fury Red 8GB - Went with the red to continue to black, red and white color scheme. Look nice and perform well. Not much to say about it.

Mushkin SSD, Seagate 1TB - Good storage setup, and easy to expand. He won't be doing any editing for a while, but he can boot windows relatively fast, and has 1TB for his games.

EVGA GeForce GTX 780 ACX - This, along with the CPU was what made this build interesting. The combination might seem a bit weird, but it actually performs well. Two 780's is nothing to take lightly, especially if he is getting two for a decent price ;)

Corsair 450D and EVGA 850W The 450D is a nice looking case, but i didn't feel it as a "quality" case. The drive cage is very flimsy, and the front panel is sensitive to touch so it falls off alot. The PSU is very nice. Has a great matte black color and is silent.

Overall, this build was fun to put together and has an interesting part list. With a few tweaks and minor upgrades this machine will DESTROY everything! Hope you all enjoy my 2nd build, feel free to ask any questions :D :D

Damn, some of those parts are on sale right now such as that PSU =/. How come no rear exhaust? Love the sleeved cables, ill gladly let you do the same to my pc! =D

The sabertooth armor prevented me to have a rear exhaust sadly D:, but I used the radiator fans as exhaust and two intake fans. Might change it up soon!

Really? Not even a 120 fits? Just an idea, but you could move that hard drive to the optical bay for more airflow. And put the rad in the front so you can put in a rear exhaust/top fans.

tbh, thermals are not that bad. the Temps under load for the GPU's dont reach 71 Degrees often. I'll probably change something with the config before i sell it to Kalio. Two intake and two exhaust for now though :P

this case is a 300R with a different exterior, more vents on the top/bottom and a slightly taller top panel. it's not a very roomy case and certain hardware will have a hard time fitting in nicely.

It's always nice to see a 780. +1

Did you buy the cables or did you sleeve them your self?

Where can I buy the sleeved cables? Is it something I have to do or can i buy them already sleeved?

I sleeved these cables myself with the different tools and materials. Depending on the PSU you own, you can buy pre-sleeved cable kits as well.

Why do you insist on using such an unnecessarily large font, are your comments more important than everyone else

Maybe using one of those new 8K TV's as your display with no scaling?

Can never help but skip past your comments even if they may be valid or interesting, purely because you feel the need to make them stand out like that.

They have been bugging me for a while, maybe I got out of bed on the wrong side this morning but it has particularity pissed me off today :(

They are "server" grade processors. This was just a quad core i had sitting around, so we decided to use it :P
