Description

I called this the 790D because I was torn between the 750D & 900D, so I just decided to name it the 790D...

This is basically an updated version of my other system that I built several months ago. I finally got around to finishing it. I use it to play games and fold. I wanted to try acrylic tubing and all went well. The only thing I'm waiting on is Corsair to release there AX1500i. I benched 1 780 @ 1411mhz. I can't run all three because I need more power. I hope you all enjoy!

Here is a benchmark at 1261MHz. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7956928

Here is 1 780 @ 1411MHz http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1981497

I'm lost for words... This is a fantastic build! You should be very proud of yourself as its a work of art.

When you come to build your next PC (in ten years time!) you should hang this on your wall or send it to the Tate :)

Well. I like to benchmark and I also do some folding. So, I can fold on 2 cards and play whatever I want on the other. :)

Good enough reason, I just don't prefer going more than 2 way sli,with the exception of going two way sli on a dual card like having two r9 295x2 in one build

Excellent build. Can you add more description?

  • 68 months ago

You should probably either:

Flip your rear fan to make it an intake.

Or

Flip the front and rear fans and add a bottom intake.

Your currently exhausting the hot air produced from the front rad into the top rad severely impairing its cooling abilities. I mean the front rad is fed ~20-22C air while the top gets fed ~30-35C air from the case.

This build is like an accumilation of everything I want to squeeze out of my build in the next few years. Brilliant.

Can you speak on what you did to the drive tray? I'd like to flip my h100i tubes around but they rest on the tray and lead to serious vibration sounds. Jamming another fan in too wouldn't hurt.

Damn beautiful.. The only thing I would change is I would flip the rear exhaust to be a rear intake. It would allow for cooler air for your top rad.

YOU EVEN SLEEVED THE CABLES?! AND YOU USED ACRYLIC TUBING?!

Like dayum gurl...

  • 68 months ago
  • 1 point

This build looks amazing, the only thing I would change is the connection between the CPU block and the rad, I would orient it vertically and put the line straight from the GPU into the CPU then to the rad, that would just make it so there are no tubes crossing. Otherwise, perfect build!

  • 68 months ago
  • 1 point

I originally want going to do that, however, the temp from 3 GPU's would be more beneficially going into a radiator to cool it before going into the CPU block.

  • 68 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry to inform but the order of the loop doesn't matter at all (except the res has to go to be above the pump and go straight to the pump). You wouldn't see any actual change and if you did, it would be within a margin of error.

  • 68 months ago
  • 2 points

I agree and you are right for the most part. However, having 3 GPU's it does make a little difference. I've actually set it up both ways. It was 1 to 3 degrees, depending on which core, under stress testing. For everyday applications you can't tell. So nothing major. Thank you for your input though. :)

Very nice. The acrylic tubing is a nice touch. I like it way better than tubing for color, consistent color without gunking up due to dye.

Errr, ahhh, errr, wow. I can't even comprehend the amazing power of this beast. I generally really hate that title for any build, but this one seems to fit the measure perfectly. One possible worry though, I saw on your benchmarks that the RAM is only clocked at 667Mhz, is this intentional, or is it a bug in 3DMark 11, or is this an accident? Another thing is on the 1261Mhz benchmark your CPU has a reported 1Mhz stock core clock.

  • 68 months ago
  • 1 point

It is just a bug in 3DMark. Sometimes it reports correctly, sometimes it doesn't. The CPU is clocked at 4.6GHz. Ram was 1866MHz

How many fans do you use on this thing? It looks like 7, but In your description it lists like 13 fans (you bought some 2-packs). Do you have 7 fans, or do I not know how to count?

  • 65 months ago
  • 1 point

I had one to many 2 packs in there. Good catch. I'm using 9 SP120's and 1 AF140. The front radiator is push/pull config, so there are 3 fans on the front on the radiator.

  • 65 months ago

Oh ok. I'm still relatively new to PC building and am only now upgrading to a full tower and fan/airflow management is new to me. For example, what does push/pull config mean?

Choose a different power supply. Corsair, EVGA, or seasonic. You want a good quality power supply. If you're overclocking I would recommend a 600 watt. Hope that helps.

Hey your build is pretty amazing to be honest. I would like some advise on a future computer i wanna build. You obviously are very good at this kind of stuff. Here's the part list link, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/YxKhXL any feed back would be amazing. I do have a budget of $1700 but i have to take into consideration of mail and rebate plus shipping. Thank you and your build is pretty bad ***. All love to you man. Its mostly a gaming build, and maybe some school work here an there. Would also love to make video content but i think i would have to go intel for that part. Thanks again!

  • 52 months ago

Hi, Sorry for the delayed reply. I looked over your parts list. I personally would use a Samsung SSD over the Adata. Is there a reason you went with AMD in lieu of Intel? Just curious.

I understand. If you are staying under $1,700. This is what I would personally do. If you can find some of these parts slightly used on the forums, that would save you even more. :)

Hey so I know this is an old build but I was wondering on whether or not you think a 360 30mm thick rad in push pull could fit in the top of this case? I have been researching a ton the past month or two in hopes of checking out build options.

That may be a very tight fit in push/pull. Check where your motherboard connectors are, if they are at the very top you will probably have problems.

Not a waste if you want to destroy games at 60fps at 1440p-4k. Two 780s maintains a solid 60fps with most games at 1080p. At just 1440p, you will not maintain 60fps with 2 780s. I applaud the inclusion of 3 780s. You can probably maintain 60fps at 4k in most games with that.

The only downside to 3-way SLI is SLI doesn't always scale nicely or some games don't have official SLI support at all (Titanfall for example).

Edit: Ok, just saw your monitor. Yeah, at 1080p 3 780s isn't necessary really, but if you ever plan on upgrading your monitor, you'll have the power needed.
