Looks pretty nice, like how it's not covered in rgbarf. Would've given AMD a shot personally especially after the whole PT 9900K benchmark thing tbh.
I'll have to wait for benchmarks before I make any conclusions on that. I was gonna go with an Enermax TR4 cooler but they don't have a warranty that covers leak damage.
Ayy didn't see that. I remember posting there before but couldn't find it for some reason this time. Anyways thanks.
I didn't see that particular thread, there's thousands of them. If you can would you mind linking the thread? Assuming you saw it. Wouldn't mind seeing if they mentioned what approach they would've tried.
Well, if you read my whole post, you'd know I realize this has been covered before. The thing is there are posts from 3 - 4 years ago asking if this'll ever happen. And it would be a nice feature, plus it would be easier to implement dedicated Physx cards from there (I know very few people use them but some do, myself included). Maybe even implement support for more than 2 Pascal cards in a system since you don't need to use SLI for stuff like Adobe Premiere or Octane afaik.
At the very least the website should allow 2 or more different GPUs from different generations or series to be added in and at least make sure they're compatible as far as dimensions and power draw go. Then put a warning banner at the top of the page that software compatibility hasn't been confirmed. Same sort of thing with Pascal 3+ GPU configs. Put 3 or more Pascal cards in a system, a banner at the top will warn users that Pascal cards can only run in 2 way SLI officially. Both of those would be much better than nothing and, it would seem, fairly easy to implement.
Well, the machine is simply going to live next to the downstairs TV. It'll store/play games and media to the tv (and other devices I stream my media library to) and transcode when needed.
I got the 690 as a stand in while my 1080Ti was out for RMA. I got the 1080Ti back though and the 690's been sitting cold since. The goal was to use at least one of the 690s cores as a transcoding GPU since tests with my laptop's 1060 push usage up quite a bit. I'll need to do testing with transcoding and gaming simultaneously tomorrow but I'm guessing games will take a performance hit if NVENC or AMF started. Then I'd buy a Vega 56 (possibly, I've heard you can get AMD and Nvidia drivers working in one machine and I have never owned a Radeon card so why not) or a 1070/Ti for games and general screen output since the 690s 2gb frame buffer is inadequate even for most titles I play at 1080p, let alone my TVs 4k native resolution (this is all assuming Plex or Emby allow me to choose what GPU I can transcode with somehow, if I bought the Vega 56 choosing NVENC would obviously use the 690 for that so problem solved there). Assuming that all works out I'll have a syatem that won't crack under pressure.
For components, well, I actually have a parts list on my profile (2 in 1 gaming/nas using wopr's old guts). If you could judge it and recommend changes that would be helpful. Some parts going into the system would come out of my current desktop, as I'm looking into Skylake X or its followup, maybe a Threadripper 2000 series chip assuming single core performance is competitive with Intel's chips. The CPU is an i7 5820K. The CPU cooler is a Cryorig R1, I plan to replace both fans with Noctua NF A14s. It's proved itself with my current overclock, and I'd be running the 5820K slower once it's been installed the server since my current mobo choice has only one 8 pin. So temps should be a bit lower even with the restricted space.
The case cooling is still very uncertain. I have a load of fans on there rn, I know I'll be buying fans for at least the front (a better Noctua 200mm rather than the default) back and bottom. I'll buy more if necessary.
PCIe spacing is the only major issue I can think of, the board I selected doesn't space out the cards but it'd be easier to source and affordable. Might consider one of the other matx X99 options if they have 2 empty spaces in between the x16 slots. Both graphics cards are going to be repasted with TG Kryonaut so that'll help, hopefully. No water cooling tho as that'll add more points of failure.
How's that PSU working for ya? I'm looking to get a 7900X at one point as well as a second 1080Ti, possibly, but I'm not sure if my 1000W G2 is enough. Also that hard line tubing around the radiator is seccsy. I personally don't have the bravery to dive into custom water cooling, I only just recently got an aio cooler for my 1080Ti after a lot of contemplating lol.
Selling it so soon? Damn. That sucks. I have a similar situation with my rig, I wasn't able to use it throughout a good portion of the last year due to high school. Didn't sell it tho because occasionally unwinding with some PCARS 2 is something I just couldn't give up.
I know. I recently tried to convince her to at least get a 1440p60hz panel or a 2560x1080 ultrawide but she doesn't want to. She uses it mostly for playing ****** music videos and browsing the web anyways so it's kinda useless. And she never cleans it because she's a lazy ***. I honestly wish I'd never built it for her.
Who knows lol. I hope it goes multithreaded, definitely helps (in DOOM 2016 OGL managed 40fps on my laptop, around 70 with Vulkan)
Point taken I suppose.
I'm not talking about reworking old games. I'm talking about new games. Even some older APIs are being worked around with multicore support. PCars 2 for instance has multithreaded rendering built in. Not to mention physics and bot racers.
The thing is that soon enough more games are gonna start using more than 4 cores. Hell, for the fun of it I once disabled hyperthreading on my 5820K and played some DOOM Vulkan. 100% CPU usage in multiple areas. And if anything, even Intel is pushing for multithreaded games.
2 power supplies huh? Lol. This build is ridiculous.
Those structures that keep the PCIE power cables in check look really neat.
Yeah, a pic of the gap might help a bit.
Nice explanation, thanks.
Just remembered why I plan to go for 8gb sticks. I won't be getting all the RAM in one big splurge, rather slowly buying it as I get the funds. Would like to run quad channel though.
Probably one of those watt-meters, or whatever they're called. The builder replied to a comment I made on his build recently and said he's had no issues.
Yeah, seems to be around 700w under most work oriented loads.
I usually refer to multiple GPUs in a system by the multi GPU tech associated with the manufacturer (here SLI obvs) lol. That said, didn't know Octane wouldn't work as well with SLI enabled. Thank you, probably saved me a bunch of Google searching and a headache by telling me this.
1026w estimated according to PCPP, 920w at the wall with a full synthetic load and GPUs/CPU overclocked according to the builder.
I was looking around and found a similar Threadripper build (1950X though, which I'm considering getting due to someone else's comment) that consumed 1026 watts (loads of HDD and NVME SSD storage, twice the RAM, etc) on a Gold rated Corsair PSU according to PCPP. Yet the max draw the guy recorded was ~920w under a system wide stress test with the 1950X and 1080 Tis OCd. Rarely hits 700 during workstation tasks according to the builder. And considering he was using an RM1000, which scored lower than my G2 according to Jonnyguru, idk, my 1000W might be enough. And thanks for the advice on the RAM, I kinda overlooked that, shoulda known.
Finally found someone who uses a 1000W PSU with a 1950X and 2 1080 Tis. Glad to hear everything is working fine. I plan to get a 1950X or maybe a 1920X then slap a 2nd 1080 Ti in my rig, good to see I won't need to replace my 1000W EVGA unit.
Depends on the price when I buy. Didn't know about the price at MC, that's a good deal.
Does the fan on the CPU cooler cover the 4th DIMM slot? Was lookimg at getting some Dominator Platinums for my soon to be Threadripper system. Not so sure those will fit now.
Is there really such a thing?
Yep, I use Octane, and I do some light mining on the side (that's actually how I'm funding this purchase, no I don't have a warehouse of RX 580s lol)
2 RX 580s for a little over the price of one 1060? What the hell... Nice build, and good work on the prices.
They're great, but they're not amazing in the grand scheme of things.
I'd definitely buy an ultrawide. For general work they're great since the wider aspect ratio allows for windows to be placed next to each other better. And in games that properly support the aspect ratio it's a truly amazing experience playing on one.
That cooler's pretty neat.
12 years old
I bet it's deadly with a 51ghz cpu. Good build btw.
I'm a bit late to the party, but just thought I'd ask anyways. I'm considering buying this board so when I upgrade to Ryzen I can use my 5820K. However, I noticed the H80i V2 isn't on the compatible list for this board (for me anyways). Did it work out of the box? Or did you have to modify the bracket/cooler to make it fit? Thanks, and nice build btw, the 380T is a neat case.
Headphones that aren't crap? I see we have a man of culture here.
I wouldn't have gone for a Z270 board and 7th Gen cpu at this point. AM4 has lots of support let's in it for the next iteration of Zen, plus Z370 and 8th Gen chips are coming out, meaning Z270 and other 200/100 series chipsets won't work with 8th Gen chips. Don't get me wrong still a nice build but some better choices could've been made to prolong the useful lifespan of the system.
That link should work. I just cropped the bottom one out.
Nice conversion. I did the opposite a few months ago when I moved my 300R build to a larger and inverted 600C. Also, good on you for taking the shots outside. I don't personally but it looks nice. +1
I’ve talked to her about it but she doesn’t want to upgrade rn.
Eh, not really in this case. The nearest competitor is the 1920X which is $150 more expensive, the 1900X is beaten by the 7820X.
Built on Intel's most relevant desktop platform. +1 for that alone.
Umm... no. It's not a fail dozer chip m8
That PSU is probably gonna blow up soon. Replace it. Also, nice bong.
This is the anti-"Linus anti rgb" pc. Srsly tho, gorgeous.
Dat tubing tho. Sexy.
i9s aren't necessarily better in every respect either. First off, your storage isn't gonna run a lot slower. VROC isn't supported but nvme raid drivers have been announced by AMD that support ALL different raid types, compared to Intel who force you to pay more for non basic versions of raid. And actually, Zen's IPC is above broadwell, and with fast memory it gets a large performance boost (it seems like memory gains for Ryzen top out around 3000-3200mhz, that's talking to someone who owns a Ryzen chip). Plus, threadripper's gaming mode improves performance by quite a bit (disables one of the two dies reducing latency and increasing fps). And no, Ryzen can go beyond 4ghz, my buddy's R7 1800X is running at 4.3. I mean, nice build nine the less, it'll kick serious *** in any game you threw at it, but the previous commenter isn't wrong, threadripper isn't a bad option either., and in some ways is better.
Wow. Yeah, that is great for the price (translates to around $408 usd)
