I clicked the screenshot first, saw the RAM, and nearly spit my drink out.

All said and done... are you planning on adding any additional storage to it? I have a 240SSD for games/os only and it's already almost full.

 
 
istealunderwear [7 Builds] 3 points 18 months ago

Looked like a heatsink to me lol

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 20 months ago

I do have additional storage, just haven't added it to the site yet ;)

 
 
Mincading [11 Builds] 10 points 20 months ago

RAMDISK! :D

 
 
saw1833 [1 Build] 3 points 20 months ago

All said and done, based on the rest of your build, I'm expecting like 5 512GB 840 Pros or something. :P

 
 
gt40spec [3 Builds] 10 points 20 months ago

this is better than my car

 
 
IamApropos [3 Builds] 2 points 20 months ago

Fancy Build ;) First I think I've seen on here using that Devil 13 7990. Curious of its performance in games such as BF3, and others. Happy gaming!

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 20 months ago

I'll give battlefield 3 a shot, haven't tried it after the never-settle drivers came out

 
 
IamApropos [3 Builds] 1 point 20 months ago

If youd ever like to talk shop discuss performance or benchmarks, what ever. Feel free to hit me up on my facebook http://www.facebook.com/iamapropos or hit me up on skype IamApropos .. happy gaming.

Though I loved reviewing that article, I'm more interested in his personal performance rather than a professional websites review since I've found that real world testing has proven quite different compared to even the most un bias website reviews. Though for all we know this guy is one of those professional reviewers, with all that ram we could speculate ;) Thanks for sharing =D

 
 
TestBuilds 1 point 20 months ago

No problem, and if you ever do anymore personal benchmarks, please share it, I love seeing them.

 
 
IamApropos [3 Builds] 0 points 20 months ago

Sure thing. =)

 
 
xSWATxBadkid [1 Build] 2 points 20 months ago

Why?

 
 
KPeterman098 1 point 20 months ago

Crazy build, man. Why not go for the H110 vs the H100?

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 20 months ago

This was done some time ago mate, there was no H110. But I'm going custom watercooling soon.

 
 
SrgtMacfly [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

Wow!! I would have gone with a GTX Titan if you could squeeze the extra 100$ out, although it will not perform as well as the 7990 in games, it will easely surpass it in the video editing and rendering. The keplar architecture and the Cuda cores really accelerate it. Also introduced TXAA and has a whopping 288.4 GBps memory bandwidth!

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 4 points 20 months ago

Again, this was before Titan. Thanks anyway... maybe in some other build ;)

 
 
SrgtMacfly [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

Ok sorry never knew! Good job on he build really nice!

 
 
TestBuilds 1 point 20 months ago

Nice build, and I'm jealous of that RAM!

 
 
iiLeGiT101 [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

For editing I would've recommended a titan but still... oh my gawd lol this build is a powerhosue!

 
 
Stigs 1 point 20 months ago

Awesome build! That 7990 is a beast.

 
 
Red_dino [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

Epic build. Kind of annoying me how you spent so much money and then got such a small SSD. Nice though. :D

Mincading [11 Builds] 1 point 20 months ago

64gb of ram, doesn't that mean 64gb of page file used on Ur ssd as well? (correct me if I'm wrong)

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 20 months ago

as default, yes

 
 
Erdubya 2 points 20 months ago

I'm assuming 'default' is the key word there.

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

I changed it, so it pages to other drives

 
 
Aura_XP_ 1 point 20 months ago

More pictures please!

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

okay mate, I can do that ;)

 
 
swarley 1 point 20 months ago

What is the 64gb of ram for.

 
 
Smily 1 point 20 months ago

video editing/rendering

 
 
Frostbyter 1 point 20 months ago

Oh my god. This cost more than my used car.

 
 
Jimmy 1 point 20 months ago

Damn, is that 5.3 Ghz the highest you have achieved?

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

Officially, it is the highest validated speed I've clocked. Unofficially there is about another 50 MHz (but it was unstable). I got lucky and got a good chip ;)

 
 
Jimmy 1 point 19 months ago

A very good chip lol. I wish I could get that lucky.

aragorn98 1 point 19 months ago

OVERKILL MUCH!!!! 64GB of RAM!!!!!!!! Great build but even for editing 64GB is overkill

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 19 months ago

not for ramdisk its not overkill, I also need a lot of RAM to take full advantage of the 3960x ;)

 
 
aragorn98 1 point 19 months ago

Fair enough for video editing. Gaming 16GB is enough

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 19 months ago

Have you been watching 3DGameman?? :p Ramdisk is the keyword here...

 
 
ipodjack22 1 point 19 months ago

CAME HERE FROM THE LINUSTECHTIPS STREAM!!!!

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 19 months ago

Cool story BRO ;)

 
 
Larry_BOb 1 point 19 months ago

You could easily cut $500 from this build with absolutely no change in performance.

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 19 months ago

3930k is not fully unlocked ;) +Intel selected the better chips for the xtreme edition. Thats why I went with 3960x.

 
 
sethi 1 point 18 months ago

ramdisk?

 
 
construction [3 Builds] 1 point 16 months ago

Do I Dare say. Cable management.

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 16 months ago

Temporary case man ;)

 
 
Papajenkinz 1 point 15 months ago

I understand you're doing lots of stuff with this, but this is way op

 
 
bringtheicecream 1 point 14 months ago

Am I the only person who'd love to see how this looks now?

 
 
Hakumisoso [2 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

Saw you advertising your build on the wan show!

I had already upvoted it.

 
 
Sn0w-Q [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

what is that case for 1500$? more than my pc by 5 times

 
 
Jozmtr 1 point 8 months ago

How's the WD R3E Doing for you?

 
 
leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

They're kinda filled to the brink :/ Imma get 1TB+ SSD when they come down in price.

 
 
Ninjadudewhat 1 point 4 months ago

Could you plz add pictures of the build itself? Would really like to see it. Completely insane btw, what do u use it for?

leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 19 months ago

leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 20 months ago

The Haf-X is just a temporary case, I just need to find one I like. Ideal case would be: light-weight, have a lot of room for radiators, pumps and reservoars. As for editing I use camtasia studio, probably something better out there but this is a program I know.

Upgrading to a 1,5 TB ssd soon 1,5 gbps read/write

leaderroy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 19 months ago

Would you happen to know of any good computer cases? Light-weight and lots of room for radiators. Been looking at this one: http://www.mountainmods.com/CYO_picker.php?casnu=Ascension
