That RM750 isn't really up to powering this system. I would make getting that Seasonic first on your priority list. The RM750 isn't a very good quality PSU.

Strongly agree. God know what idiot has downvoted this..

That Seasonic will be just the ticket :)

Haha good old tiny :P agree, RM's are not that great. Im gathering my parts soon and deciding between the 750/850 P2 or the SeaS xp2 760/860

I would go for an EVGA G2/B2 personally.

What are the parts? Unless it is a $2000+ PC there is no reason to get an enterprise grade PSU.

Greets!
The Seasonic SS-1050XM2 is in place. I don't see power being an issue again. :)

Build looks really nice! +1 You should post some picks once you install the EVGA GPU coolers. I'd love to see so much AIO in one build That monitor looks sweet! How's it doing for you?

I plan to! I like the idea of water cooling but don't want the maintenance hassle. :) The monitor is amazing. It's a great pairing with the 980ti SLI. Essentially you get vsync without the performance hit. :)

Maybe instead of AIO on the GPUs and CPU you could custom loop it?

I understand many people enjoy putting in water cooling. It isn't something I really want to mess with. The AIOs give me the best of both worlds. :)

Good all-rounder. Love the use of the reference 980 Ti's and holy cow that is a lot of storage!! Anyways, the SeaSonic will tremendously help you and those monsters you call gpus. Anyways, nice build. +1

Thanks kindly! I lucked out and found the 2nd 980ti (same as the first; Gigabyte reference) @ Amazon Warehouse for $50 off. :)

I really like references because they allow you to allow for Liquid Cooling

you should of just got two Titian X for the price of two of those Graphics cards.its like 20 dollars more but will perform way over those two 980 ti

  • 51 months ago

I think your math is off. A Titan X is about $1000. Each 980ti was about $650.

my bad was going off the price of what it said on the part list

  • 51 months ago

No problem! I believe it's so high because Gigabyte is producing the reference card any more.

upgrade.exe has stopped working. This may be cause due to power fluctuation. Please wait.

I plan to put a CPU AIO (leaning towards Cooler Master Nepton 240m) after the PSU & GPU coolers.

the cablemod SE series cables work with this PSU? I'm looking at them and couldn't find anything that said they work with this psu

Yeppers. There's a compatibility page on their site. About half way down there's a line:

SE-Series Seasonic® X-Series XM2 1050

Next up in Peregrine's evolution: GTX 1080 Ti to replace the 980 Ti SLI. Preference? More AIO!

I'm currently looking at either:

Getting a Founders Edition 1080 Ti (probably the EVGA version) and adding EVGA'x GTX TITAN X (Pascal) / GTX 1080 Ti FE HYBRID Waterblock Cooler. I have EVGA Hybrid coolers on the 980 Ti SLI and they've been awesome. The downside is cost; you'll pay $860 ($700 for the FE card and $160 for the Hybrid cooler). On the upside all 1080 Tis I've seen already have backplanes so don't have to buy that also (the 980 Ti reference didn't have them).

or

Corsair & MSI's Hydro GFX FTX 1080 Ti Liquid Cooled Graphics Card. This one is interesting because a) It's for sale (only at Corsair's site) for $800 and b) it's already overclocked.

Note: the pictures are badly out of date. The part list is up to date; the latest goodie is an HTC Vive. :)

if you have the money for this build i suggest that you get a x99 motherboard instead and ddr4 ram and probably like a i7 5820k procceser

If he's not doing a rendering build X99 is absolutely pointless for gaming

  • 51 months ago

100% agree. A 4790k beats the 5820k in every game.

I spent a lot of time agonizing over the z97 vs x99 debate. At the end it came down to price and there being little gaming performance difference between the two.

Each 980ti hybrid is $110 (getting $20 back rebate on one of them). The CPU AIO will be around $130. Yes, $330 will get me a custom loop but why go through the hassle?
