Description

Client asked me to build a Rendering Machine that could out perform his old computer for 1000$. I stressed that he should wait to have a little more for a hyperthreaded processor and 16gb of Ram. Needed it soon so that it how this build came about. He is overall impressed so far with the Performance.

I Was personally very impressed with the H60. I used this on my first build and didn't have much knowledge about clock speeds then, NOW on the Other Hand I do very well with overclocking.

The Stock voltage Running ASUS Realbench 2.2 at 3700mhz using 1.029 core V on 100% load At STOCK SPEEDS (3.5GHZ/3.9GHZ) after 15min Using 8GB of Ram was 61c (Ambient Temperatures was 60F)

Overclocking it to 4.2GHZ Using only 1.11Core V at 100% Load after 30min Using 8Gb of Ram: Max temp was 74c (Ambients in house were still 60F-61F).

The H60 Is only in push. I have the Rear Fan as intake for the H60. Top two 120mm Fans are Exhaust.

Please Refrain from telling me that something could have been changed. It was not my wallet that funded this build. I can only work with so much.

The Board has slots for more Gpu that could run in SLI @ x8/x8

Also can easily put another 2 x 4Gb Corsair Vengance Sticks in the empty Dim Slots for Quad 16Gb Ram setup to assist with Video Editing and Render Jobs.

2 x 760 EVGA Cards will Out perform one GTX 780

The Case was the Last thing on his mind also. Tried to get another 50$ out of him for a corsair 450D or a 350D for that Matter. Wouldn't Do it.

Personally The NZXT 210 Window Impressed me externally. But from previous build with my Fater I knew what to expect with cable management and spacewise.

Enjoy

YES!!!! I just hate touching the board with my bare hands.

I agree! I just like knowing that there aren't any smudgy fingerprints on anything that I will be giving to a customer.

Well I forgot to wipe the prints off of the Case but I know there aren't any inside the Case you know? Lol

Where did the cooler money come from? Also, I don't understand the cooling setup, and I would think the temps would be better with that cooler, even with the overclock.

If money was really tight, the memory could have come from a different brand, especially at 1600 speeds. Your part choices are otherwise sensible.

I provided the Cooler from my Previous Build for the client for free. I needed it out of the house. I specialize in Custom Loops and have no need for AIO coolers. The Nzxt cannot fit a cooler up on the top rack with fans inside the case In push/or pull. It would hit the board.

I am partial to Corsair, Therefore the Ram Used Was corsair.

I appreciate the Input.

Nice build. I agree that your client should've forked over the extra cash for a bit nicer case. Your ram, motherboard, and graphics card were a bit overpriced in my opinion. I'd have opted for the 2133 MHz Ripjaw 2 x 4 ram set that was $60 about two days ago. I'd also have got an R9 290 for less than that price because it would've performed better with the same amount of vram, albeit hotter. Last of all, I'd have gotten a cheaper Z97 board because, while yours was more of a workstation board, all Z97 boards are pretty close performance wise, not to mention you'd get a better price since you'd only need a board that supports Crossfire, which almost all do. Overall, while I have my own thoughts, it's a lot cheaper than boutique-built systems, has a closed loop cooling system, and is a hell of a lot better than your client would have done. Also, you have some nice cable management. Nice work.

Ram was purchased 2 weeks ago. A "Workstation board" ? Hmm. I needed a board that supported SlI for future upgrades this is true. Appreciate the comment about the cable management. Not much room for error in the 210 Elite.

Good build. Nice price. Very clean. Nice to see the quality of your work doesn't vary from each build. Very professional. +1

I was remarkably surprised by the core V used to get to 4.2Ghz. I have a 4770k in my rig delidded using 1.275 core V. The H60 was kicking for sure.

I would agree with you on the placement outside if the computer was running whilst I placed it down, But its just for show my friend.
