Description

Home computer for gaming, video, and web development.

I only do a home computer build every 4 or 5 years. When I do I tend to go a little over the top. Many people were surprised at the lack of Titan’s considering the price tag. Honestly, I just cannot wrap my head around the idea of spending $1200 on a single graphics card. The Thermaltake AIO water cooler does an excellent job keeping the CPU cool. I am running about 65° to 69° C when under 100% load with a 100/47/31 OC. I did end up dropping 32GB of RAM as I was getting better performance all around. I did not spend a lot of time digging around to see why. Video encoding out of Premier is a lot faster than my older rig.

OS and I/O intensive apps are on the NVMe drive, which is amazing IMO. I put standard apps on the SSD and I use the two 4TB drives for scratch and games respectively. Completed video ends up on my QNap NAS so the scratch volume never hits more than 75% capacity. I respectfully disagree with one of the comments that a 4TB hard drive is "too much storage".

Having moved on to other projects for work, church, and my daughter’s school I have not gotten around to completing this build. The original intent was to run separate GPU and CPU water cooled loops, hence the ridiculously large case. However, I have still yet to get back to that part of it.

I've got the same case depending on who are you are it does make everything easier if you have the space and there's plenty of space and upgrade capability :P

But access to the holes to screw down cards is horrible considering the price of the case.

Did you buy LED strips or is that how it looks like with the RGB Thermaltake Cooler inside ?

Yup men that surprised me, i was like lol 6k USD and no Titan X SLI??!?

  • 46 months ago

Yeah, I was thinking the same. My build cost 2.5k USD and I couldn't even think of anything that would've raise the price much higher than that besides trying SLI and getting one of those fancy M.2 drives. Maybe 3.7k at most had I went extreme.

They actually look better on the inside. Not as much of an eye catcher as the outside.

I had intended on change the color of some of the panels but never around to it.

Man, I don't remember what the comment I was responding to stated. Still an awesome machine.

Btw I couldn't upvote you 7 months ago, but Phillip gave me back voting rights. Now I can actually +1 your build instead of just a Thumbs up.
