If you aren't overclocking, and he isn't there is literally no point in spending more on a mobo.
There are quite a few programs out there that support the Logitech LCD screens, such as Teamspeak so you can see who is talking.
But it can in DX12 though....
Likely has a KVM switch, although just using remote desktop is also a common practice.
Sweet, my handle is DeadEyePsycho. I also play with about a dozen other folk, although typically not all at once. We even have a Teamspeak server if you want to hangout.
Nice build, and shouldn't have a problem running at very high with at least a constant 60 FPS. I do it just fine with an i5 and a 980. Also, what's your handle in Star Citizen, we could play some time.
Mate, give the rest of your setup some love too.
The Hero motherboard lights up like that by itself.
That doesn't look like a Sapphire Tri-X. If anythings it looks like an Asus DirectCUII
They do not swap sides.
Why do you have that one fan sucking air away from the GPU to the front of the case? That is a bad configuration for fans.
Did you even read the description?
Dat necro though
An 850W would be just fine considering the low power usage of the 980s. I know for a fact that with a 3960X cpu that's overclocked, two 290s will only pull a bit over 600W max and that's total system usage but it is also measured at the socket so efficiency isn't accurate. Here are some power consuption benchmarks showing them.
Fermi beats Hawaii in heat any day of the week.
*H110i GT, there is quite the difference. Between the two you listed though, the Kraken.
Why does this not have more up-votes? It has incredibly clear pictures, amazing cable management, and overall is superb.
The luck that is you is OVER 9000!!!!!!!
Could improve the cable management a bit, otherwise nice build.
3DMark is what he is talking about. It is a primarily graphics benchmarking software which can either used for free through the demo or bought, both version are on Steam.
I'm pretty sure he meant him assembling it, not that it performs sloppy.
It's hard to say since there is a bit of a gap between the 290 and 280X. I'm thinking that there might be a slight performance hit compared to having an i5 or something along that line but you shouldn't be impacted too much. Even if you do go with the 290, you'll still have better performance than a 280X.
Trust me when I say this, my friend's sister has an fx6300 with an r9 290 and she gets significantly lower fps and scores in benchmarks than my system which also has a 290 but I have a 4670k.
Oh yea there will definitely be a bottleneck there.
Someone was trolling the down-vote button so I up-voted all of the affected comments.
It has nothing to do with dual channel, that is just how software labels double data rate RAM.
Actually that isn't how it works. It is half because it is double data rate RAM, not because there are two sticks. If he had only one, it would still say 1066.
Anyone else think EVGA could have done a better job with the designing of their coolers to look better?
He didn't mean color scheme, he meant all AMD aka red team. Nvidia the green team, and Intel the blue team.
Titan Z had a 50% price slash so he probably only spent around $3000.
Why would he buy a ROG Swift? They are G-Sync while Free/Adaptive Sync Monitors will be coming out soon.
You do realize your idle temp is inaccurate right?
Aesthetics was obviously a key part of this build although I will agree with you on the AXi power supplies.
Better cooling performance.
Your Firestrike score seems a bit low. I have a 4670k and an R9 290 which gave me a score over 10000.
According to PCPP, 1333 isn't supported by the motherboard.
AMD is known for having inaccurate idle temps. I doubt the CPU is slightly less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Guys, it is pretty obvious that this is an upgrade build and not a complete all done in one swoop build.
One of the official Geforce SLI bridges would have looked amazing with the 970's.
The 'case' is full of mineral oil, not air.
They make a black and blue version too.
Not really. There are other features besides overclocking the cpu on Z series boards. One example is multi gpu support.
He means that you didn't post a finished build and haven't shown us a completed build, only parts.
Almost all of the parts in the picture are different from the list. What gives man?
I suggest tomshardware.com. They are quick to help and have a lot more people that regularly post and actually know what they are talking about.
Well, I have a PC and a PS4; to be honest I play on my PC more. I actually had the PS4 first but you will find the PC gaming experience much smoother. If you can afford it, both is a pretty good option. You get access to pretty much every title out there except for a select few that aren't worth mentioning.
Actually the inside of the bag is identical to the outside of the bag. This keeps the electrical potential, voltage, on each side of the bag, ie. inside and outside, the same in order to prevent the possibility of ESD. For there to be a static discharge, there has to be a difference in the amount the electrons on each side, the bag is conductive throughout the whole thing to keeps the electrons evenly spread out. Also, some act as Faraday cages while others serve only to dissipate high voltages.
Yes, I know how a Faraday Cage works. You guys might disagree with me but it is just my opinion. Saying the outside of it is conductive doesn't make much sense though since you know cases are conductive as well. As long as there is a ground and nothing to build up static, there isn't much danger. You may disagree with me but I have never killed any component I've owned; I find being overly paranoid about the possibility of ESD isn't worth the time. Hell, when I work on my own computer I sit it on my rug with my self grounded to the chassis and nothing has happened. Again, just my two cents. Feel free to down vote if you want.
EDIT: Also see my post to the other guy that explains ESD bags better.
I really wouldn't be that worried about the outside of an antistatic bag. Besides, I even had my own GPU just sitting on my desk with nothing in between when I replaced its thermal paste and it is just dandy.
