It took months of planning before even starting and it took almost a year to build this thing into what it is today. Started off in a old and camped case but I moved it and rebuilt it into a new case and started planning out my water-cooling which took for ever to get the money for. Anyway I added some cool LEDs and all the rest of the other stuff and now it's basically done. Only plans right now are to try and add one last GTX 760 in 3-way SLI to boost performance but I can save that for later. All my water-cooling parts are from EK-WB and if you need parts for water-cooling then that's the place to go! Only problems with this build is previously I failed to get the right pwoer supply and it got killed because it was not the proper wattage. It was covered though so no worries there. However one major problem is a safety fault was not working properly in the power supply and it somehow sent a huge pulse of current through the CPU socket and melted the socket on the motherboard. Corsair happily payed for the damage and Memory express got a replacement PSU that was instead 1000 watts instead. I will be surprised if I break that limit. The CPU was slightly damaged by that pulse in which it was slightly unstable but still usable. AMD let me fill out an RMA and they replaced it free of charge! But this is the computer I have now and I'm happy with it. Glad to share it with a few people to see if anyone wants to try and build it themselves. Of course don't go overboard with the monitors unless you REALLY need 3 monitors for your work-space and make sure you have room for these. These monitors are great and I'm happy with them. That's mostly It. Here is a 3D Mark score on Fire Strike. This is the Best score I could get with the GPU's in SLI without the Drivers crashing on me.
I got the cards to their literal max before they might have actually broken. Same case goes for the CPU. I have it going at it's Max before It would overheat on a Full load with Prime 95 and since windows 8.1 is being annoying this is my max for this CPU. If you have any questions on anything here just ask me in the comments. For future reference I use this for rendering and Gaming because I don't have the money to create and use a Rendering computer powered by intel and a awesome Gaming build.
This processor is very good! I have clocked it to 5GHz before however It was just getting too hot to keep it stable. But I have gotten a lot of power out of this processor and I think that this is a good processor for most games on steam and other platforms.
Very good motherboard. ASUS and other manufactures need to start making more AM3 boards like this one! It's got an easy to use Overlock tuner and a Awesome Easy mode with automatic over-clocking. Plus a little downside is a bit of ROG connect could use some work but it still works and is awesome. Good Motherboard ASUS
Very good graphics card. I have over-clocked them many times already and found the max on these cards are the following for anyone looking for good clocks on these cards: Boost GPU by max 168MHz. 169 might work but don't pass 170. Increase the over-voltage by about 12 and max memory boost was about 690MHz. So It's a great card to work with and is what got my most recent 3Dmark score to 10000+ with 2-way SLI. Turns out that this card in 2-way SLI beats a single GTX titan. I'm very impressed!
This is a god case Corsair. It has quite a bit of room and provides me just enough room for all of my water-cooling parts and I like the glass panel as well. It's a good case for first builds in my opinion.
It's an okay OS, I will say that. But I would still prefer Windows 7. You know if I had money to buy windows 7 again or if I had a product key. But I guess windows 8.1 will do for now.
Very good airflow and is a lot more quieter than I thought it would be.
These fans are very quiet and still provide a decent amount of airflow. However I think the SP120 fans are a lot better but they sadly do not have LEDs.
Sadly does not support 4pin fans but they do sell another fan controller that does. Overall this is a good fan controller for builds like the one I recently posted on this site and comes with a decent automatic fan control option with temperature sensors and temperature warning alarm
Great monitor! It does give me 1080p and it may be a bit pricey but it is a great monitor to work with. If anyone is wanting one of these my guess is that 2 of these is more than enough. But if you really wanna have fun and have the money to spend go ahead and buy 3.
