First timer here. Nothing too original as I reviewed these builds to see what kinds of cool options were out there. I fell in love with the Corsair 760T Black case, and I knew I wanted a red and black theme. I name all my computers in the household after chromatic dragons, and this one was going to be the Red Dragon (despite the black case... the Red themed LEDs, chair, keyboard, and mouse was good enough for me.)
The hardest decision for me was whether to go with 3x1080, 1x1440, 1x4K. I ended up deciding to get the ASUS ROG Swift because I wanted to see how things would look at 120+ FPS, my plan being that down the road (when Star Citizen released or I decided to try 3d racing) I would get two more, and possibly a 3rd 980ti in 3SLI. I'm impatient however, and I went ahead and picked up 2 more ASUS ROG Swift's and figured I'd give it a go with only 2 GPUs.
One of the reasons I didn't go with 4K is that display port 1.2 doesn't support enough bandwidth for anything over 60Hz at 4K. That being said, my setup with the 3 ROG Swifts is currently locked to 85Hz because of the length of the cable for my monitor that is further away (had to use a 15'. May try a 10 foot and see if that ups the refresh, but honestly, I'm never going to get over 85 FPS is 1440 surround anyway. If I want more frames I'll just drop down to gaming on the center monitor or the right two.)
So, 1440 Surround was the verdict. At first heaven was a little choppy. I tweaked the GPU voltage/speed/mem speed and that really seemed smooth things out.
Custom Configuration: CPU OC to 4.5GHz at 1.29v Memory at 2666 GPU +103MHz - Total GPU w/Boost 1405MHz GPU MEM +100MHz - GPU Mem 3602MHz GPU Voltage +24mV
Performance: 3dMark 22746 Heaven 1189 (never went over 80°C). Average FPS 47.2 in 7680x1440 note: The screenshot of the benchmark says 2560x1440 but it was 7680 x 1440. I ran the benchmark at SYSTEM resolution.
I'm not going to go into specifics on each part as the big hitters have tons of reviews elsewhere. I'm posting this just to give everyone an idea of how the 2x980ti SC+ at 1440 Surround functions with this build.
Happy to answer any questions. Again, I'm pretty new at this and everything I know I learned in the last week or two.
