Description

A little Background:

This PC is just pure amazing. There are not many more words to describe it. Unstoppable has never met an obstacle it couldn't conquer. Combining pure raw dual GPU power, with two lightning fast SSD's, 32GB high speed Corsair RAM, and a killer CPU OC'd to 4.5GHZ, this machine has defeated any test to come its way. To assist in the rampage, both CPU and GPU are liquid cooled with a state of the art, completely custom loop, guaranteeing mega performance while staying frosty cold. In addition, an aerospace grade power backup protects this machine from every type of power disturbance and flaw possible, while also delivering a healthy and smooth current. Built in mid 2012, Unstoppable's purpose was to simply amaze me, and be capable of everything I throw at it, 24/7. It has lived up to the task, and then some. Unstoppable will dominate gaming for years to come, and is completely ready for upgrades if need be, to retain its spot as being one of the best of the best.

The Purposes:

The PC was built with the need for a powerful machine to run my Flight Simulator to help me practice procedures, and improve my overall flying skill. Flight Simulators are notoriously CPU intensive, so a powerful hexa-core was the choice. FPS gameplay was also in mind, as I wanted to run everything maxed out at 60+ FPS at 1440p. The answer here was the GTX 690. Rendering was also an issue. A need for a lightning fast rendering and productivity machine was needed. Unstoppable delivers in all of these categories.

Update (04OCT15):

This machine has been decommissioned and the parts have been sold. Thanks for all the comments on the rig guys! I'm glad you appreciated it for what it was.

the UPS is freakin' insane, runs the computer for over 30 mins when power is lost, and defends against brown outs and lightning strikes.

  • 72 months ago
  • 0 points

Thank you for your interest sir! This build was carefully planned over a course of several months before the actual construction process took place. The system was assembled in mind of upgrading the parts throughout the future. Personally, I do not recommend building something like this as a first system. Go with something simpler, to help learn about the build process. This was anything but easy to plan out and assemble. Unstoppable also requires maintenance periodically, such as filter cleaning, coolant refills due to evaporation, and more.

  • 71 months ago

Looks like a sweet first build dude, much faster than my first system lol :) . The only changes I could think of lies with the memory, consider getting 4x2 to make 8 GB total, dual channel is always better than single. If you can, consider the GTX 770. Great performance to value in that card. Otherwise, that is one beast of a rig, and wish you the best with it!

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

Haha no way it's faster than your system. Thanks for the advice, why is dual channel better?

  • 71 months ago
  • 0 points

Dual channel ram will help by splitting up the needed workload onto 2 sticks. It wont be a significant performance boost, but more in the range of 10-15%. This will be shown mostly on 3D graphical benchmarks, and may make your games run slightly better. Personally, I recommend the dual sticks in this situation.

I hear the 690 is a monster how do you like it! I am going to SLI my 670s next week and OC them I can't wait! Love the build a little cable management like extentions to help you hide some stuff around the back and VOILA perfection!

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

going SLI on the 670's is a great idea bro, your overall performance will increase big time. The 690 is a monster indeed, especially on water. The thing never heats up much at all, and runs everything ultra, 1080p, 60+ FPS. The OC'd 670's will do the same for you dude. Fasten your seat belt dude, it's going to be one hell of a machine. Would you mind posting it on the site? I'm interested in seeing this rig.

Well I wanted to put premium top of the line parts into this system, no cheap inefficient AMD. As said in previous posts, the GTX 690 was the fastest video card at the time, now soon to be succeeded by the Titan Z. The i7 3930k is a killer CPU, and can handle any task thrown at it. It even OC's better than the 4XXX series. The UPS is an aerospace grade unit, filters the power current, while also safely shutting down the system in an event of a power failure. I think the money was a wise investment overall, this machine kicks *** in every category.

Kind of a waste of money in my opinion. I don't fell like you need all that stuff in there, plus if you really wanted to you could have saved a bunch by buying the RAM all together and the SSDs all together. Why would you need to spend that much on a monitor, there are hundreds if not thousands of monitors that are really good quality for around $300 each. Personally I would have not gone with EATX just because you can get the same power and performance in a regular ATX motherboard. This is all my opinion, it is not wrong but it is not necessarily right. And as always have a good day. :)

The 690 is more powerful than a Titan, and at the time of building, the Titan was not released yet. I'm happy with the 690 though, it was a wise purchase, at least for me.

How about mine? Any opinions?

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

In my experienced opinion, as I have been into PC's for quite some time now, the PC you will be building is nothing short of a certified *** kicker. The dual 780 Ti's will max out any game to hit the market for a long time, your CPU will handle any task it is assigned, and dual monitors will extend your desktop space to allow you to access multiple windows at once. The only changes that I recommend are to start out with less memory (2TB SATA space) and add more if more is required throughout the future. 16GB of RAM is more than enough for gaming, 32 is just throwing money away, unless you render videos or use RAM intensive software. Lastly, you may want to consider IPS display monitors. The TN displays you currently have selected have a high refresh rate (144hz), but sacrifice visuals for it. The display also requires you to be at a specific viewing angle for the image to appear proper. Rant over lol :) Consider my changes, and enjoy the system when you decide to build it.

  • 71 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks! Yes, it is easily for gaming, but also for rendering videos and hosting some virtual servers from time to time. I've seen that the BenQ 144's are the best for gaming due to their refresh rate. Plus the color scheme matches everything... I keep digging around some more :P

Welcome. :) Also, might I ask what FPS this gets on games? I'm guessing around 140 on BF4 and at least 100 on Metro. Those 690s are beast.

EDIT: Considering you are clearly more experienced than me at this, could you give any suggestions for this first time enthusiast gaming build? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9gMbCJ I need to stay below $2750 and maintain the Red/Black color scheme.

  • 70 months ago
  • 1 point

On most games, the framerate hovers around the 130 mark, with the highest being 150 and a low of about 95. The liquid cooling helps to keep everything cold, and prevent throttling. I'll be honest, my cable management is not the best, but I will be fixing soon hopefully!

As for your build, it looks very nice in my opinion. The 4770k is a great CPU, and will handle many tasks simultaneously. The MSI 780Ti is perfect in a red/black themed build. Also consider the Asus DirectCU II edition for a similar look. Both will allow you to game at over 60FPS easy. Good call with the SSD, definitely put BF4 on it :) . To save some cash, you may want to go with a 8GB RAM kit. Unless you are rendering, or using RAM intensive software, there isn't much need for 16GB. 8 or 12 GB will be just fine. The monitor you have is nice, except it is a TN display. TN's have higher refresh rate, but sacrifice visuals such as color accuracy and sharpness. Also, you will need to sit at a specific angle for the display to appear proper. TN's are best when framerate really matters. Otherwise, your build is very nice, and I am looking forward to seeing this rig when she's finished! :)

  • 70 months ago
  • 1 point

The Direct CU II costs a little too much at over $700 (at least last time I checked) and since I'm not really saving pennies on this, I got 16GB pretty much for bragging rights and I may use some ram intensive software in the future. Also, any other ideas on monitors that stay at or below $250 that are still 1080p with at least 120Hz refresh rate?

One problem I have is that you paid $1500 for monitors but didn't get 120Hz monitors

  • 67 months ago

These monitors that I selected are IPS displays, that are capable of 1440p resolution. IPS monitors are usually more expensive, especially for resolutions over 1080p. TN displays, on the other hand, are cheaper, and have faster refresh rates. However, their color accuracy is less, and you need to be sitting at specific angles for the image to appear correctly. I like my games to look the best possible visually, so I chose IPS displays for my setup. That's just my preference.

The fractal case that you speak of is not really my style. I wanted this build to have a different, more abnormal look, therefore I selected this case. I am in the process of building a new system in a CaseLabs Magnum SMA8, I guarentee it will look 500% better than this rig. When I built this machine, I didn't have much care in cable neatness. That has changed since then, of course. Most of the components that make up this rig are being replaced with this major upgrade. Thank you for taking the time to comment though vsjay. Not all criticism is supposed to be positive :)

Don't worry about it dude, I appreciate your feedback and will definitely implement it in my new rig under construction. Your build sounds like a sweet, tidy machine. You should share it on this site, myself and others would appreciate the work you put into it.

Seems like a lot of money for very little performance. And the prices are ancient and I'm not sure a lot of this stuff was this price brand new.

These prices are as of the build date- June of 2012. This machine was a killer in its day, holding the #1 most expensive slot for over a year here on PartPicker.

Most expensive doesn't mean the best. 690 was a nice dual chip but it is so dated at this point.

I completely agree with that. I have been gaming in 1440p for awhile now and the the 690 just isn't cutting it anymore. I am in the process of building a completely new rig to replace this one, just need to devise a drain system for it and she'll be good to go.

Looks great, but I would work on cable management a little.

I tried my best :( . There's not much more I could do about it. It could be better, its just too complex with all the cooling and stuff, but i'll see what I can do.

Yep, I do actually. You see, this PC actually exists. That one is only in your dreams bud. Even better, I'll be putting intel's new Devils Canyon 8 core extreme edition processor in this bad boy once it is up for purchase. Looks like this'll be passing 10k soon.

Yes, I guess that's sadly true. Also, will the new 2011 CPU's support X79 mobos?

  • 72 months ago

No, the mobo will be replaced as well. It will be the X99. I'm hoping Asus makes a suitable successor for the Rampage IV, I loved this board and am looking forward to the new designs.

Do you even know what the 690 is?????? It gives the 780 Ti a run for it's money!

I wouldn't call it horrible one bit. Everything I throw at it runs games at the highest settings, and the card never heats up at all. Sounds like a win to me. At the time of construction (June 2012), this was the best of the best video card, and is still nothing short of an *** kicker today.

A40 is holding up well. Bought the headset back in 2011, and it still works flawlessly. The sound quality is also very, very good in my opinion. This headset is another tool we PC master race use as well :) . I use it when I play Xbox 360 also.

Yeah from time to time. I mostly play either GTA V or Halo when on x360, as they are still only on consoles. Good news is GTA V is coming to PC this fall though. I'm very stoked for it :) No Halo for PC though :(
