Rich with my $50 xeon processors and DDR3 haha. If I was rich I wouldn't be using Recycled parts.
Thank you I appreciate it. This was the first Themed build I have made it was pretty fun. Honestly after my 5930k setup stopped working and I started using the old Xeons I actually feel the older E5-2667 v2 Performs just as well or even better in gaming. If I am going to do a hardware upgrade in the future it will probably just be a GPU upgrade until PCIe 4.0 actually starts to take off. and I am the same with 60hz as well it doesn't really disappoint at all. the only time I notice any frame drops is when I actually have the FPS counter up and focusing on that instead of gaming.
Thank you and it is cool to be able to have the Dual CPUs. The motherboard was the hardest to find because people are price gouging the older ones.
The 43in Acer has its Pros and Cons. It might just be the model I have but it almost feels like it has screen burn ins if I leave it on a web page for too long when I open something new I can still see the old image but it goes away after I bring up a screen that has more dark colors.
This monitor is only $399 to $499 depending on where you buy it. It is an HDR IPS panel and is 60hz which running at 4k with a 1080ti it doesn't have enough power to cause any screen tearing in games. I set VSync and most games look amazing.
I mainly bought the monitor for the space. I do have a small youtube channel so for video editing the extra space is perfect. I also do photo editing and rendering as a hobby so the 4k screen makes it quite easy.
Gaming wise I have to use an Xbox one controller because I have to sit pretty far back from it to enjoy the game lol.
So for General use I would give it a 8 out of 10. Gaming it would be about a 6.
Haha if I was a real gamer I would have went with CPUs that weren't 6 years old. I also would haven't have gone with a 4k 60hz acer monitor... I will have to admit... I am a filthy Casual gamer. I use my rig for other things as well so its just balanced between work and gaming.
I just uploaded screenshots of the Temps they should be the last 3 pictures
Gaming the CPU and GPU doesn't get above 40c. I live in North Dakota and with it being the Winter that maybe helping the temps. I am sure it will be slightly higher during the summer but I run my AC most of the time so I don't think I will see any difference.
The Benchmarks don't run long enough to make it go above that either.
Thanks and it has been a long time since I last logged in here is what the build looks like now
hmm That is strange my LED in the front came red? I didn't get a Blue one. I am going to be switching to the Bykski RGB because it will power up my new CPU blocks on my new build.
so I have a 360mm rad in front as intake, The top 480mm radiator is exhaust
also sorry for the super late response it has been a long time since I logged in
here is a video of what the build looks like now
Hey sorry I haven't been on here in quite some time
the top of the W100 has a 480mm on the top, a 360mm in the front, 560mm in the bottom P100. it used to have a 480mm in there as well but it was difficult when it came to maintenance so I took it out.
I just finished another Build if you want to check it out
It is the WP100
Sorry I haven't been on here in a while it is the WP100. PC part picker at the time didn't have the option to let me choose both since the W100 and P100 are sold separately
I have update the parts list so it reflects my 1080ti's not the regular 1080s
Yeah I am going to fix that. I thought I had choose the right ones because the price was way to high to be just 1080s lol
I will do that and thank you!
Yeah I actually wanted to do Green but I had already invested too much in Red from my last build.
It is a spare Drive cage I found on Amazon. I put the temp sensors and a fan controller in it. and Thank you!
haha I wish I need 4 Titan X's and a 6950x for that.
I thought about it but I was thinking the silver would accent with the rest of the chrome parts in the build.
I was able to get the I7 5930k to 4.8Ghz @ 1.45v which is very high but was only to run a benchmark for a short period. Daily is sits at 4.5Ghz @ 1.3v
The 1080s I was able to get them to 2152MHz core and 11500Mhz on the memory Stable in Benchmarks and gaming. here is a link to the last time I ran Firestrike. I think with the new drivers I may be able to squeeze just a little more out of them.
LOL well there was a budget and my wife said its either a new vehicle or the computer. I think my 98 Buick can last me a few more years haha Plus I have a work truck anyway
lol you should see my youtube channel people trolling it just for that reason just so they can make the comment and feel like they are cool. A computer case is a computer case. and thank you
Yes Yes She does haha. I only upgrade about ever 4 or 5 years. some of the stuff is from my old build. like the fans and a couple radiators. But the hardware is all new so I probably wont see another upgrade until 2020 lol or if I win the lottery haah
I would say so if you aren't going for something crazy like my rig the W100 is perfect and in the future you wanted to expand you can if you wanted to.
It isn't plugged in I couldn't find space for it haha but I do have it
for the most are you can't really see them with the door panel on. I wanted to get more extensions but my budget was getting pretty small and I couldn't dump any more money into it without getting myself into trouble.
Oh it definitely can not hold the computer while gaming. it is from my old rig. but with the new pascal cards they dont eat up as much power. If the power did go out it should give me just enough time to shut it down. I will eventually upgrade to a bigger one.
haah I wish man my entire build had a specific budget so when the money is gone it is gone. I only upgrade every 4 or 5 years.
I only gaming on the Middle 1440 Asus monitor, other than gaming I do Video editing, Vms and programming. The extra monitors come in handy when editing and programming. They also came from my old rig no one really wanted them so I just keep them with my rig.
lol Lots of save I will probably not upgrade for a few years just like my old rig. my old rig had old 780s and before then I had the 8800GTS. so usually only upgrade every 5 years or so.
Well it is a build up to that the monitors have carried on from different builds and parts of the cooling system and hardware are from my old builds as well.
but thank you
LOL heck no I would need a 3rd 1080 for that
LOL unfortunately I don't play that game lol but I think I need Titans for that haha
I am running just the Samsung 950 Pro as my main drive. I do have the 2 x 1 TB drives in a Raid 1 for Backing up my important documents
Just did a video on 3 Mechanical keyboards
Corsair RGB Strafe
Corsair K95 RGB
The most silent was the Strafe but over all features and prices I would say the Gskill was the best
He used some parts from his old rig, he is waiting to see if a Ti 1080 comes out.
Yes it is quite loud but I am in the process of Replacing the bottom panel. I will be installing a couple fan controllers to turn them down a bit. And Thank you
Here is a link to a video I just made showing the new bottom panel I will be replacing soon.
The EVGA Classified GTX 1080 has RGB lighting great cooling and is a very good overclocker. EVGA also offers great customer service and doesn't void your warranty for watercooling it either.
I will try that thank you for the advice. Im still new at creating videos.
Its just the pictures I posted its not you. Thats why i had to narrate it. I am working on making better videos lol.
from the Test and benchmarks I have ran it was very little to no difference. in the Firestrike benchmarks I scored a few hundred points better in each test but none really justifying the cost of the Dominators or even getting 3000Mhz + speed ram. The only real Task that require such ram would be. Content creation and Rendering in General. and even then its a few seconds saved. In My opinion more money invested into CPU or GPU would make more sense in an Average user Stand point.
For me It was more for looks and curiosity since I got one set of them for a really good deal.
