Description

UPDATED THE BUILD WITH 3DMARK RESULTS AS WELL AS THE OVERCLOCK DOWN ON THE CPU*

It's been a while since I've been able to put something together that really really rocked. My last rig was an i7-2600k with 8gb of ram and what started with an EVGA 560 Ti; that later got upgraded to an EVGA 780 Ti Superclocked. I've been dreaming of building something awesome for the last year or so but always held off.

Then Star Citizen came out.

I kept thinking to myself "I want to be able to play at 1440p. I'm not one of those 4k guys who insist on 60fps at 4k resolutions! What can I build myself that can accomplish this? What can I build myself TODAY that can accomplish this?".

Originally I was looking at running two EVGA Titan-X cards but I was told by a good friend to hold off for a few weeks as something was coming down the pipe. He couldn't really tell me what because of his NDA agreements etc but he did say that "something big is coming soon(tm)". Normally the Soon(TM) really makes me pause but I trusted him and so I waited.

BAM! The 980 Ti was released! WOW!

Almost the performance of a Titan-X at just under 2/3 of the cost? I'll take two please!

The parts list you see before you has evolved as I have gotten more and more in to the learning about what parts do what and how to use them all together. This is only Ti Fighter Mark 1; the Mark 2 will be coming soon, will be housed within an SMA8 case and will be a liquid cooled overclocked beast.

CPU: I didn't want to go for the 5960X because that is insanely expensive for what you get and I didn't want to go with the 5820k because well I could do better than that. I went with the 5930k to be just under insanely expensive!

GPU: Originally I was going to go with the Titan-X and run two of them in SLI but here in Canada that would have been around $2800.00 CDN after taxes. Crazy! I waited and was rewarded with the EVGA 980 Ti. Originally I had the SC with ACX coolers on them but my colleague at work was like "If you are going to water cool them eventually get the reference because it is easier to take apart". I also spoke with Joker from Joker Productions and he schooled me a bit on reference blowers versus after market coolers. Wise words from a fellow gamer!!!

MB: Because, why not? Seriously, the Asus Rampage V Extreme is regarded as one of the best boards currently on the market and I really did want to build this system to be a beast with the potential for more. The ROG board definitely delivers that. I'm still learning to OC but I have the tools for when my knowledge gets there.

SSD: 250gb for my OS and apps and 512gb for my games and steam stuff. Pretty self explanatory.

HDD: Because everyone needs a good solid data drive right? This allows me to store movies and tv shows or render my youtube stuff without actually stressing the SSD.

CASE: I went with the 780T originally because I thought "damn, that looks pretty cool". I still think that but the Ti Fighter Mark 2 is going to run with a Case Labs SMA8 with liquid cooling so this is a temporary house for this beast of a machine. A YouTube acquaintance of mine gave me some great starting points for the aesthetics based on his own rig. I took that and gutted the inside for my own internals.

1080p MONITOR: I've had 1080p for years now however my last monitors were a 19" and a 23". I wanted to go bigger! I wanted something that was 27" to watch videos on or do my web surfing or help when I'm running OBS for my YouTube channel. Also, why not right?

1440p MONITOR: I wanted something that was better than 1080p gaming and I needed something that would match the 27" monitor I have beside it. Unfortunately the bezel is slightly smaller than the 1080 version so they don't flush beside each other completely. Close enough that it doesn't matter but my OCD may get the better of me in the long run.

PS: 1200 watts should be enough to cover my needs for a good time to come. So why not?!?!

NOTES: I swapped the two stock Corsair SP140L fans in the H110i GT with two Noctua NF-P14s 900s in pull configuration at the top of the case because the fans that came with the H110i GT are EXTREMELY loud under load. 2200rpm and crazy noisy (42db). Because these Noctua are so quiet, and the PC is doing a good enough job of cooling the CPU even with the moderate overclock, I removed the other two Corsair fans I originally had in PUSH config. All the other Corsair Quiet Edition fans are very quiet and so far serve admirably.

Star Citizen gets 75 fps in the Arena Commander with G-Sync on and everything at VERY HIGH.

I haven't played with others yet but have downloaded Witcher 3 etc. I'll let you know in coming days.

Marc is an acquaintance of mine. His case was the original inspiration for Project Ti Fighter - Ver 1.0.

We've both evolved our internals beyond the original scope and I'm running SLI 980 Ti whereas I think he is running SLI 970s or a single 980 Ti? This build will be evolving further into an SMA8 and water cooling but that will come as time and money allow.

When you say this. "I'm not one of those 4k guys who insist on 60fps at 4k resolutions!". You buy two video cards that can do 60 FPS at 4k. :P Just saying, but nice build though +1.

  • 50 months ago
  • 1 point

That is entirely possible but not something I was striving for when planning out the build. Going to 1440 was a ginormous step for me and one that I was excited for. I was speccing the build for Star Citizen at 1440.

  • 50 months ago
  • 1 point

Well I am sure you will be able to achieve way more than 60 FPS. I guess you could go for those 144Hz monitors people always want. You could easily achieve 144FPS+ with 2 980 Ti's at 1440p.

Since 980 Ti are 4k video cards. 1440p will be easy for them! :)

We will have to see what happens! I've sort of taken the approach that as the YouTube channel grows I'll grow the Ti Fighter as well. My goal is to go water cooled by the time I hit 1000. Just starting out but we gotta have goals right?! Once water cooling goes in I'll think about a single 27" 4k monitor but we will see.

Do you have your GPU's in the 1st and 3rd PCIE lanes? And if you do, why?

  • 50 months ago

Yes, I do. One reason is for spacing; allows air to pass between the cards. The second reason is because the PCI Lanes in the first and third slot are 16x versus 8x in the second slot.

Very nice build! I love the 760/780T cases from Corsair. Sooo pretty. what fans will you be outfitting the SMA8 with when you get to that point?

After a quick click on youtube link, sees Batman: Arkham Knight video.

Hey I don't know if it was addressed through video card driver/game patches as well, but on the new Batman game you are able to go into the game's .ini file and adjust the frame rate there. I just saw that you had posted a video on youtube of your Arkham Knight game play addressing the negative feedback on the PC port and I've read scathing reviews on the frame rate for the game elsewhere. I was unable to watch the video because I'm at work so I didn't know if you had already known about this.

  • 50 months ago
  • 1 point

No, I am not sure if you can go into the .ini or not. That is something I will be looking up in the coming days. I'm a 40 year old gamer so learning to play takes me a little longer :) This build pegs 30 FPS solidly but after extended gameplay there is some slight lag when switching scenes. Could be a memory leak as the game does crash when I tab out sometimes. You should sub on the channel and discuss there :)

Is this build intended for gaming mostly? Or what else is it intended for? Sorry that I sound like a noob but from reading the description, it sounds like a dream and personal wants coming into reality but couldn't quite figure out the purposes. I sense it's for gaming a lot but I rather better understand your reasoning. I don't want to assume is all. Good build!

It's sort of the first time I've put together a dream machine for myself. I've always had what I considered "good gear" but I wanted to build "the best gear" (by best I mean best for me). This machine is built for Star Citizen (assuming Roberts and crew don't implode with all the recent rumours of Sandy and Travis leaving as well as others) and it is also built for youtube rendering and every day computing. As I get older (40 now) I wanted a machine that could do a bit of everything and this is it.

"Project Ti Fighter"... 2x 980ti... I see what you did there...

  • 50 months ago
  • 1 point

Interesting build - A lot of money on the line here. 2 questions come to mind. your Motherboard of choice (while i am not saying i dont approve of it) has the following PCI Express lanes (40-lane CPU @ x16, x16/x16, x16/x8/x8 or x16/x8/x8/x8; 28-lane CPU @ x16, x16/x8, x8/x8/x8). it also has 8 x SATA 6Gb/s of which it would appear you are using (why??). what you forgot to see is this 1 x M.2 Socket 3 with M Key, support type 2260/2280/22110 storage devices

M-Key M.2 typically run on an x4 channel. You are using 2 x 16 = 32, likely 1 more for your lan, couple more for random ____ here and there, but you are not using the x4 m socket. fact of the matter is you dropped 630 bucks on a MB, and you likely could have dropped around 280 - 300 to have pretty much the same performance. The M.2 socket while running at ~ 24 gb/s is wasted here. not to mention that MB isnt supporting usb 3.1. (for 10 dollars more typically). Summing up, you've bought a 700 HP Hellcat, but the dealer only gave you the black keys.

green switches on your keyboard. guess thats not a bad option - if you plan to game with a chunk of lead on each finger....

  • 50 months ago
  • 1 point

I see a lot of technical knowledge here that I am unfamiliar with. While I can appreciate you taking the time to point those things out it is sadly beyond my knowledge.

I have no interest in adding the M.2 drive stuff yet. Larger sizes are pretty expensive, the technology is still relatively new and my knowledge of them is almost non-existent. I do know that I wanted a motherboard that would be able to scale accordingly to my knowledge and this one offers that. As my knowledge of new potential hardware components increases I have the room to be able to grow.

As for green switches versus other alternatives? Again, not really relevant to me as my knowledge of all that micromanagement is non-existent. I'm 6'2 and an ex firefighter. I have no problems with lead in the fingers. :)

I will look up more information on the M.2 stuff. Thanks for the leads.

Get ride of the basic GTX 980ti Reference cards. And go with 2 Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980 Ti's set in SLI. Specifically these, https://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn98tg1gaming6gd.

Linus Tech Tips did a review on the card here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLvoRZds3iQ

It absolutely ripped apart the Titan X for -300 USD$ less than the TItan X.

Actually, the Gigabyte G1 are great cards for sure unfortunately they can't be overclocked much more than they already are. The reason I bought the basic GTX 980 Ti reference cards is because once I add the third one the stock blowers are coming off and the system is going water cooled. :)

I'm in the middle of deciding if I want to go liquid cooled and add a 3rd 980 Ti. That would be a rebuild if I go that route but it is VERY expensive and starting to go in to the realm of insane out of pocket expenses.

Ahhhh, a fellow Citizen of the Verse. Great build, and +1. I also built my rig in anticipation for SC, albeit a little before you haha. I just ordered a second 980 to add to my build for SLI to get some performance bumps, because with my monitor I struggle to hit 45 FPS on medium in AC, and that just didn't cut it. Add that to the 980 price drop, and I had my reason to get a second one! Hopefully I should be hitting ~60 FPS (thats the dream, of course XD). Anyways, if you don't mind me asking, what ships do you have (if any), and are you part of any orgs? Thanks in advance, and once again, awesome build and hope to see you around the Verse!

Kool, I feel like everyone is trying to do YouTube channel's lately LOL! Granted I do want to post a video of the case I plan to create that has all the greatest stuff in mind while being ideal in more ways than the Red Harbinger's Cross Desk would ever be. Have you ever seen the Atlantic Gaming Desk? I want to take a couple of those and pull all the excess parts off it like the headset holder, game pad holder, cup holder, etc. and such little things that make that unique and put it to a glass top and attach that glass top to a wood base housing. or metal base preferably for more sturdiness.

Then the glass top I would make into an entire one-way mirror so the only time you see inside is when the system powers on and all the lights turn on! Kind of like the "InWin Tou" only not the entire case would be a one-way mirror concept which I feel helps reduce the cleaning need the InWin Tou requires. Also I want much more 5.25" external drive bays available than a normal case/desk option but I am working on trying to figure that part out. Designing the thing is the hard part building it may also be hard but I think it would be worth it. The big debate right now that is left is whether to make it so that it can house two motherboards like the Red Harbinger's Cross Desk or just one system and then users can simply use something like a multi-seat software to share the computer!?

Hello,

I am building a new pc and I have decided that I am going to get a 980 ti but can’t decide between the reference cooler or an aftermarket cooler. I am stuck because I really like the look of the reference cooler but have read online they are noisy and run really hot. In you experience is this true about the reference design because if so could go with an aftermarket one.

Many thanks,

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

If you are just going to run one then I would recommend the after market one (assuming you have a case with sufficient room for airflow). Otherwise, if you have a smaller case, or plan to run two in SLI, I would recommend reference as they blow the hot air out the back of the case rather than distribute hot air within the case, adding to the ambient temps within the case and heating up your other components.

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

I was going to start with one and go for SLI in the future when the 980 ti decreases in price.

So you would recommend the reference blower cooler?

Also, my case is the define r5, but with all the panels closed up for silence so the airflow probably won't be optimum.

Also, I have seen your vids on YouTube but didn't recognise the logo, awesome build and channel

I also watched Joker productions video where he explained the positives of the reference design which was what got me thinking seeing as I have the same case as he does.

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

Actually, funny that you mention that but I just rebuilt the Ti Fighter into an R5 (blackout edition). That is what is sitting on my desk right now and I will be doing a video of it as well as posting the images here when I take some this weekend. New motherboard but the rest of the gear is the same.

If you have an R5 I definitely recommend the reference as you plan on going SLI at some point in the future. Cards are closer together in SLI than they were on my Asus ROG Extreme MB and so with an ACX cooler (or non-standard aftermarket fan) you will be blowing air from one card down in to the other as well as heating up the inside of the R5. Hot air rises naturally (unless you build a super positive pressure wind tunnel) and that will heat up all the components above you as the air escapes.

If you haven't already, sub to my channel as I will be posting the video on the Define R5 and my build in it. From the perspective of someone who had to pay out of pocket for every single piece of hardware so you won't be getting the whole "my video sponsored by So-n-So" type agenda.

As for Joker. Solid dude. He helped me a great deal in getting started.

Yeah, I decided on the define r5 after watching his review and his x99 build log because it is just a really well built case and I personally love the look.

Also, I was going to get the EVGA superclocked reference card and put this backplate on it

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/evga-gtx-980ti-backplate-for-acx-20plus-superclocked-and-reference-cards

Would this do anything, other than looking awesome.

I look forward to seeing that video and have been subscribed since joker linked your channel in one of his videos.

Thanks for you help

Hey bud great build! I chose almost the same parts besides the MB which I went with the 170 deluxe for the white theme :). I do have one question though - did you have any issues putting the fan controller in the case? I couldn't lock it in place because the screw holes are a bit deeper in the case at the optical drive slot, and the sentry has short metal plates at the back... was curious if you had that issue and what did you do to resolve it..?

I sent you a message from CanuckGamer on YouTube but never heard back from you. Even gave you a shout out in one of my videos. Still learning but my production value is going up and up and up.

Yes, which is why the EK water blocks fit the 980 Ti! I'm slowly starting to assemble a parts list for a water cooling version of this.

Those are coming with the water cooling parts I am currently researching! I'm surprised that EVGA doesn't add $20.00 back plates to $850.00 CDN cards but it is what it is.

I've got my eye on the EK Backplates for the Titan-X since they fit the 980 Ti. As for the water cooling, I've got one of my colleagues at work helping me with that out as I would surely mess tube bending up!

Don't take it personally. Haters gonna hate. I don't up or down vote comments but there are people out there who do stuff like that. Personally I've never let anyone elses opinion matter to me. "...those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”

I meant to say good build... and I agree, other's opinions don't matter unless you gain something from it :D
