gaming and 3d app workstation

built for gaming, 3d applications and editing, tried to future proof it, but we all know something bigger and better will come about as soon as you buy something. The case is really good for cable management and looks sexy and is really quite, I have the two fans at the front and the one at the back connected to the built in 3 speed, the stock fans run quite and smooth even at speed. no real problems with the build, had to update the bios for the 4930k but after messing around with the file name on the memory stick for the bio flash we finally got it to work!

one more thing ... the h100i works amazingly. the user interface works well with the setting fan curves. the light in the middle can be set to what ever colour you like.. but the fans that come with it are noticeable noisy and vibrate on the case and will be out of there as soon as a buy some new ones

If anyone was wondering what work I would be using this for please take a look some of my work at http://mohawkrendering.wix.com/home

Your RAM...

..it's more expensive than your GPU...


spikysi [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 10 months ago

yeahhhh. Had my eye on the 1600mhz version which is the same price as the 1866mhz but at times will drop down the £350 but couldn't wait any longer

Very nice part choices, beautiful cable management.

EDIT: Only thing wrong here, is no SSD...

spikysi [Submitter] [1 Build] 5 points 10 months ago

thank you. yes was think of getting one as my brother has just got one. but am also thinking of partitioning the ram for storage maybe half which would be faster then SSD ;)

Why does your chair not have a backrest on it?

spikysi [Submitter] [1 Build] 9 points 10 months ago

funny story... I recently found the breaking point of the back rest when leaning back to admire my work. I admired it to hard.

wow. You managed to get very good parts for a pretty good price

I love that GPU that says "GEFORCE GTX" down the side. Great build!

Sweet build!

If you're planning to run 3d apps and editing, i would have gone with a Titan given its workstation capabilities, if you don't mind the premium. nice build either way

spikysi [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

thank you. yes the titan did cross my mind but comparing price and performance it had to be the 780. also was after the new kepler architecture which is more energy efficient same reason for the 4930 over the 3930. same price but lower energy needed on idle, also I wanted it for gaming and the 780 ti was better then the titan for less,

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES. Made my day. I love builds with dual slots for ram. I love heavy duty builds. Nice room too.

xolot1 [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Needed the extra RAM to play mine sweeper?lol in all seriousness, that is one sick build! !

leftyrojas430 [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Many people spend $1,400 on there entire build. But not you, you spent $1,400 on a gpu and ram! THAT...IS...JUST...AWESOME!!!!!!!!

EngageTheSun [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

WOW WOW WOW!!!! Amazing build man, I wish i had the money to do that! +1

Adamantame [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

What in the world do you have you need to buy 64 GB of ram?

From above: "but [I] am also thinking of partitioning the ram for storage maybe half which would be faster then SSD ;)"

Hi. I also bought an asus p9x79 le and i7 4930k. I'm wondering how you did with the Bios update?. I don't want to go wrong there. It will be very appreciated your knowledge about this matter.
