If you enjoy this Computer. Check out all the videos I made and recorded for building purposes On Youtube
Here is my Google +
If you want to see my log of how I built it (It's at the bottom on the Overclock.net Link)
Wanted to build a computer on the X99 Platform to showcase Building skills and Create a computer ready for 2160p. Tons of Modifying and painting, Started to collect parts in Nov. Changed Orange due to a possible conflict with the Solder in the Rads, Orange was turning to dark. Went with Blue Pastel to symbolize Intels Colour, and Green for Nvidia Colour.
I have Dual loops due to not wanting heat from one Component affecting the Other.
Temps as of Now:
Test Run on Ambients of 26.6c (80f) Realbench 2.4 30min Stress Test
Max Temp on Cores ( 62C) Max Temp on Top Card was 45C (Bottom Card was 43C)
5930k Overclocked to 4.25Ghz (125 Strap x 34 Multi) Using 1.2Core V XMP Enabled for Corsair Dom Plat 4 x 4Gb Sticks @ 2666Mhz Evga 980 Superclocked (1366Mhz top Clock factory Speed) Top Card In Loop Evga 980 SC (Bottom Card in Loop)
After Playing The Witcher 3 for Over 7 Hours Straight:
Max Temp on Cores were 55C Max Temp on (Top Card) 50C Max Temp on (Bottom Card) 45C
I need to re-seat the Top GPU in the waterblock, the thermal paste didn't spread good obviously. I should only have a 2C difference inbetween the top and bottom card.
Gpus are Run in Parallel. Named Build "The Division" For Tom Clancy's Game that is postponed until 2016 Now.
The Cautious One
The First computer I built was 2 years Go I think in June of 2013 that I rebuilt a couple times when I started looking into watercooling. Quite the Journey.
This computer was quite a trip to build and took quite a while since each part was expensive. I had to work and ration away 500$ here and 1000$ there but we did it. I got every part I wanted and left nothing to spare.
Current FPS at 1440p on Ultra with everything on The Witcher 3 is 60FPS average. 70FPS here and 50FPS there. But average is 60FPS which is great. I think that If I went 2160P I would need another 980 for 3way sli.
After 7 hours of gaming the Max Core temp on processor was 55C and Ambients were 26.6C. If the ambients were to drop to.... 21C (70F) then my max temps would drop around 5C
