Description

I built my Computer 6 years ago and at the time it was high end. It actually does pretty well even today, however, I am a 3D artist who does both CPU and GPU rendering so it was time to beef up my workstation. I don't Run bench marks as the only thing I care about is a decrease in render times which this machine is doing perfectly. Although I have a dedicated render farm it's nice to have the 36 thread CPU power to kick out quick test renders. I have two titan XPs and I dropped in my old Gen 1 Titan (because why not)and the Real-time rendering is pretty darn awesome! Does great with games like Overwatch,DCS and PubG :)

Honestly ansonmoyer, saying 'no minecraft i hate this computer would not build' doesn't do anything. your opinion doesn't really matter if it's not your own thing. just stop being toxic!

Looks great - I dig it! Have you considered adding colored sleeving to your AIO tubing? Maybe in the same light blue as your cables. I've seen a few builds who do it over the normal black that all AIOs come with & it gives that extra pop of color!

I love the simplicity and uniformity. It's over the top without being over the top. (kind of the point of building high end rigs) I feel like investing this way is much better than investing in a bunch of stuff that wont make your build last any longer. It still has those features, but not at a huge extra cost. Like custom fittings for a loop and 2k spent on a case... I feel like loops should be a year or two after the initial build to make them last longer.

Although, this could use about 2 more TB of m.2 and at least 6TB of HDD/SSD to be totally worth it, IMHO.

Thanks! I agree with your storage suggestion.

I am a 3D artist as well and I have a similar rig (I put it up an PC Part Picker) plus two 22 core Xeon machines. While I have 2 Titan Xp's, a 1080 Ti, and a Titan x Maxwell, I mostly render with cpu's. I generally use 3ds Max and Vray. I delidded the I9 7980XE and put a big mono block on it and even at a modest 4.2 Ghz overclock I get some pretty hot cores during renders. Two cores in particular get into the 90's. How are your temps? Curious what you have for a farm.

  • 14 months ago

Temps don't seem to be too crazy for me since I don't overclock. My render farm has 11x 1U Hp servers with 12 cores (24 threads) each, 1x custom 2U server with 16core (32 thread) , and 1x custom 44core (88 thread) 4U server with a gen 1 titan. so 192 cores (384 threads) in total. It destroys renders and now I can athis build to it if i need to.

Holy ****! I have 124 threads and am going to add a 32 core threadripper for 188 threads. I thought I'd be balling but I'm a peasant compared to you. What are you rendering? Animations?

  • 14 months ago
  • 1 point

yeah I render Animations and I have a few smaller companies that I render stuff for them. Honestly Just troll ebay for used Xeon servers I got those 12 core machines for 350 each and I just had to buy hard drives for them.

jeez! So much powah! Great build! I'm a 3d artist too (environment and prop) and i'm planning on upgrading my build to a ryzen 2700 and gtx 1080 maybe 1080ti if I make enough money. Your build looks really nice too. Love the rgb!

Thanks! your build sounds sweet, Def try to get the 1080ti :D

  • 14 months ago

I Primarily use 3ds Max, Maya, Vray, Zbrush, Substance Painter, and the Unreal Engine

Awesome Build! I am thinking of making a high-end gaming machine soon, and I was thinking of using the vengeance pro ram. Would you recommend it? (I'm going for a black and white build with blue RGB accents)

  • 14 months ago

I really like Corsair RAM I have used it in all my builds and it hasn't failed me yet (Knocks on wood). I do recommend the Vengeance pro. It looks super cool and has good performance. Its A little Pricey but worth it in my opinion. I also like how you can get it in black OR White.

Sound Great! Thank you for replying. I was thinking of going with trident z before but now I think I will go with the white vengeance pro. Thank you!

favorite part of the build is the rear exhaust fan on the outside of the case. 10/10 amazing computer

lol i had to do a little rigging to get it to mount on the outside but it was worth it. I honestly just didnt want to hide the lights and OLED on the Motherboard. It would have crushed my heart to have it on the inside.

Don't you think that the bottom Titan Xp is being choked by the X?

  • 12 months ago

I would move the AIO to the top, to exhaust the heat and give the GPUs colder air. And as they are reference, CPU temps shouldn't be affected.

Nice build. One of the best builds I've seen in that case. How are your gpu temps?

  • 14 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks! Idle the Temps are 39, 38, 31 degrees Celsius . When I run a game (i dont use SLI) 84, 38, and 32 Celsius. I'm still getting my rendering software installed but once all 3 GPUs start rendering i'm expecting them to be 85-88 degrees Celsius. I think im going to look into water cooling for them next year.

I’m interested to know what you’re build was 6 years ago lol. What was considered high end in 2012?

  • 14 months ago

Oh lets see. It had a 6 core i7 (12 threads), 32GB of DDR 3 Ram, and 2x Gen 1 Titans.

Where did you buy your Titan XPs from and at what price each?

  • 14 months ago

I got them off of Nvidia Website for 1200 each. I have been keeping an eye out for them on ebay and bids are around 800 to 900 for used ones.

Just ordered a new set up and your build was great inspiration. Couple questions.. Which monitor arm is that to hold the 3 27s and the ultra wide? Also that is alot of weight on the desk, it looks to maybe be a sit/stand 2 leg? I have a desk similar and was worried about monitor jiggle while typing with that much weight. Also, how long is the desk to fit everything? Thanks!

  • 14 months ago

this is just my table i use for building. I do plan on getting a standing desk for my monitors but i will probably have my computer on a side table next to the standing desk. i would recommend a 70 inch desk to fit all your monitors, not sure if your PC will fit too though but I have put 4 27inch monitors on a 70inch desk before.

your build really inspired me to build same rig as yours , was lower GPU as GUI & two Titan Xp as accelerator ?? ...

But can it run farmville on 360p, low settings at a constant 5 fps? I would ask if it could run minesweeper, but I know that it will fry those titans

I this ok for gaming, because I've heard that much cheaper processors like the 7700k and 8700k actually outperformed the 7980XE due to their superior single core performance
