Description

Multi Purpose. Biggest thing to deal with was setting the memory up properly, and that only took minutes.

EDIT: Cut some side vinyl.

The pic with the red glow from the hot swap bay is the most current and shows how my cables are ran.

Edit: To address the cable management concerns below.

That ram looks really cool. I have red gskill ripjaws and it looks okay, but this looks better.

Thanks

Everyone is going to ask anyway, so why the 32gb of Ram? When you say multi-purpose, what all do you use it for?

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 4 points 25 months ago

I knew they would. When I run AfterEffects with a RAMDISK.

Divdor 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Glad I asked before everyone trashed you for it. That should run aftereffects really well. Forgot to say it earlier, nice build.

Thanks!

I've just started playing with RAMDISKs. WOW is all I can say. I have 16Gb on my current build and I'm really considering upgrading to 32Gb for my next one.

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

Faster than SSD. RAMDISK plus SSD shaves a second or two off huge files opening, but you work with what you can when you can. SSD's scare me a bit because a colleague had some early gen SSD's and they died pretty quickly. That's why I went RAMDISK to try and save the future SSD some wear and tear. Hope that makes sense.

Yeah, After Effects doesn't like my 4 GB

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

:( I feel that. My last system was a Core 2 Duo 2.66 with 4GB ram.

Norm101 3 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

LOL My last system was a Core 2 Duo with 2Gb or RAM than I upgraded to 4. Now I'm running an i5 3570k at 4.2Ghz with 16Gb RAM. The difference made my jaw hit the floor.

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

I had 1Gb RAM when I first got the Core 2 haha

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Editing and rendering are most typical usage. I got it stable at 2133, but i'm probably going to try 1866 with maybe 8-10-10-30 at the suggestion of the Admin from the G.Skill tech forum.

How is that case working for you? I've heard it is a bit unorthodox (with the mobo upside down)--was it hard to work in?

It looks like the cable management could be better (I'll blame that on the case). Nice build though.

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

Extremely easy to work in actually, bigger than you picture. By far. My desk used to have a top and a shelf, but the last computer required the shelf to be removed and this one required the whole top half of my desk to be removed. I have video of all of my builds if you're interested in seeing the case accept all of its new parts. I only put this one up because most of my builds aren't personal, they are typically for clients. I like the vertical air flow and the top fans are always sucking the hot air out. The only exhaust i can feel heat from is the one right by the CPU under full load, but I haven't seen it get much higher that 51°C. Stays chilly, with room to mound rads when I come up with the other few blocks I need. I want to run one on the voltage regulator if I'm going liquid.

Edit: My front mount PSU just barely makes 2 of the runs so there's that.

The ram is a little too overkill. I would have just stayed with 16gb of ram and gotten a i5 4670k and a 660. Same with the power supply. A little too overkill

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Its for my ramdisk, And the PSU is overkill. I did the swap from my 620 to have headspace and to have the PCI-E 8 pins for the classified 770 that was coming.

MissKaizen 1 point 16 months ago

Nice setup! And I was debating about the case, but if it does really follow the natural flow of heat, then it's a clincher for me. I don't know too much about building, but it sounds like it could do some damage (in a good way!) By the way, how is the monitor for you? Pros? Cons?

sw33tp34 submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

I like the monitor, but am looking to upgrade it. It has a limited viewing angle
