Description

Titan V, 3080 Damage, 100% VR Framerate, Deep Neural Network Attack 400%, 75% chance for critical cryptocurrency extraction with bleed-out gains, 250 Watts, SLI support. F*king OP, Man.

Hey Vegeta, what is the Titan V's power level? It's over 9000!!!

Can it run Crysis? Hell, yeah!

I got a free Titan V through twitter sweepstakes (thanks, Nvidia!). The card was too much for my old pc so I decided to build one from scratch.

Surprisingly, everything worked well at the first attempt. The cooler master's instructions are not very clear, but we figured it out. If you are thinking about getting a Kraken cooler, it seems it just way easier to use with the NZXT 340 Elite case. The simplicity and coolness may be worth the price difference.

I didn't invest in LED parts. Maybe I should, the build would look cooler, but in the end it doesn't matter that much.

Moving the QNIX monitor from the previous build to this one proved tricker than expected. The GoFanco DVI to Display Port adapters work wonderfully, but one monitor had to use (counterintuitively) a single layer DVI cable for it to work.

The system runs blazing fast and it can run everything I have tried at maximum settings and 4K. Only the witcher 3 with full hair works on has made it stutter a little bit (56+ fps).

I haven't overclocked it yet, but I may in the future. I am also waiting for the 4K HDR Gsync monitors to come out. For now, I use the OLED TV for 4K gaming and the QNIX when latency is more critical.

Also the Vive pro works very smoothly with this setup.

I would be so nervous slotting that titan in....

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

It is pretty sturdy. It feels just like the 1070, but yeah, I was nervous.

SirHalpin 1 Build 4 points 10 months ago

why are you so casual about owning a Titan V! where's the hype!!!!!!

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 8 points 10 months ago

Did it come as too casual? It is one of the coolest things that has happened to me. I have never before owned such an OP piece of hardware.

Maybe I should add all that to the description

please do lol

auldlangsi 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

Is it at all unsettling that you're using hardware capable of supporting an AI to run video games? +1

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

Why? As I said I will train DNNs here too. So AI is part of the workload :) I for one welcome our GPU overlords

JustinXenyx 2 points 10 months ago

The Titan V does NOT support SLI, neither does it have a SLI - Connection. It has a NVLINK Connection up top, but NVIDIA stated that the Titan V is not supporting that either. So you CANNOT use the Titan V in a Multigpu config for gaming, unless you use the DirectX 12 Adaptive Multigpu methods. Just wanted to let you know that, as a lot of people get confused about this.

take care ~JX

Pics off build?

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

I will add some more pics later today

Nice build, did you consider getting a water cooler for the CPU ?

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Yes, I did, but they are quite expensive and I am not convinced of their added value. If I decide to overclock it and I run into thermal problems, I would certainly add a water cooler. Probably a Kraken.

supertrav99 1 point 10 months ago

Dude! Do you know how many frames you can get in roblox with that Titan V!

Synchro 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

I'd say 3 at the very least. At most? Probably 400000

KevinM9 1 point 10 months ago

A Titan V... Christ!

One of those pictures appears to be in a classroom, did you bring it in for show and tell or something? Would've done the same if I was still in school, nice build!

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Hahaha. Not classroom, but the office. I took it to work. A couple of friends helped me put it together there. If I was still in the school , I guess I would have done the same :) Thanks!

Trinescity 1 point 10 months ago

Man, if I owned a Titan V I wouldn't be able to fully utilize it at all in my life

Jyrone 1 point 10 months ago

Do you not have an HDD?

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Yes I do. There are 2 m.2 SSDs, 1 SATA SSD and 1 HDD

Eagle355 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Wins Titan V Uses WiFi card instead of his Mobo's built-in AC... Uses half-decent air cooler And uses two 1440p 60Hz monitors... Love it +1

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I migrated some parts from my older rig :) I tried to keep the budget for new parts at 1000, and I pretty much met that.

That wi-fi card is soooo much better than the built-in. I have a Gigabit internet connection, but I cannot have the computer wired to the router. Having good wi-fi matters.

I am not overclocking CPU as it is not currently a bottleneck under any workload I have. If I need to overclock and heat becomes and issue, I would consider a better cooler.

I already had the two monitors. They were pretty good for the prize. I often hook the computer to a LG OLED TV that I use for gaming at 4K when input lag is not critical.

Part of the reason for saving in components is for later buying one of those HDR 4K Gsync monitors that Nvidia will release soon.

Eagle355 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Makes sense. The BFGD's? (Big-format-gaming-displays) I think they would be mighty expensive... But sure. You have a Titan V! Good job with your new rig!

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Yes, those! I figured that being a bit cheap on some of the components would be good, if that money was destined for an amazing display. Thanks!

rogdog56 1 point 4 months ago

Can you turn off the lights on the mobo?

SupremeLogan 1 point 3 months ago

I need you Titan... I need you...

rhettarded 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Hello mate, 8 months after, how did the titan V go, in terms of temperatures? Was it still okay? What are you min/max/ave during loads?

iiVe 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

If you have the kind of money to burn on a Titan V card, upgrade to a 2080 Ti. The price is almost 1/3 that of the Titan and it's still faster in gaming (unless you also use the card for a workbench, then keep titan because it's meant for workloads other than gaming). Hell, you might even want 2 2080Ti's with SLI since that speed is insane. Super nice build with good specs but why the cheap case, if you're going to upgrade at all maybe get the mastercase H500M since it would match the build better.

Super.Craig -1 points 10 months ago

Has $3000 card

Goes with a 1151 instead of 2066 cpu

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

GPU was a prize. None of my workloads is bottlenecked by CPU at the moment. Why spend more? I would rather keep upgrading the components over the next two years. That GPU is going to stay current easily for two years

Super.Craig 2 points 10 months ago

You are so lucky winning a Titan V

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Yes, I am, but they keep giving them away. Give it a shot. Follow nvidia on twitter and instagram. Their stuff is for real. Best of luck https://sdqk.me/Z5uzMWbY/nvidia-gtc18-deeplearning-contest#/enter

7980XE when overclocked smashes the 8700k and wait for cascade lake as well that will just hit it out of the park

Odonix 1 Build -3 points 10 months ago

lol that Titan V is so bottle-necked by the 8700k

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

not really, for gaming, even an i5 would do and at 4k with ridiculous high settings, even the titan v would become the bottleneck before the CPU.

Odonix 1 Build -1 points 9 months ago

Yeah, obviously it can work, I know, but the Titan V is far more superior than the 8700k, the best GPU to pair with the 8700k is the 1080ti

Ridden_ 1 point 9 months ago

Honestly, if a 8700k bottlenecks a Titan V... i don't know what doesn't by then...

Odonix 1 Build 0 points 9 months ago

7980XE?

Ridden_ 1 point 9 months ago

7980XE only beats the 8700k in applications where multi thread performance is needed.

willmaa 4 points 10 months ago

blower style coolers usually arent effected by small spaces like this case.

[comment deleted by staff]
cloudraven submitter 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

Oh, that's true. I did move it up. That's an older picture I took while building it. It is also missing two of the RAM sticks. I will upload the final build later tonight

I don't think it would have an issue there, the reason I moved it up it was just because it is easier to appreciate that golden Titan V. In the end, it is the most remarkable piece of the build

willmaa 1 point 10 months ago

i wouldnt be surprised if the only way to prevent bottlenecks for that titan V is having some type of LTT intel OEM server processors in your machine

WDayneHS 1 point 9 months ago

There is no CPU available yet that can unleash the pull power of the TITAN V. Even the i9-7980XE has over 30% CPU bottleneck. The only thing, I think, that could even try would be the Xeon Phi processors, but those have only 8 PCI-E lanes.

Also, the TITAN V cannot be used in SLI. Just saying,

cloudraven submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

I am mostly going to use it for gaming and training deep learning models. If it is idle I may use it for mining. Alternatively, I could use my older rig with a 1070 for mining and keep this one for the fun stuff. I could use both. Haven't really done any mining yet.

Blackie_Sheen 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

The titan V is not sli capable

willmaa 1 point 10 months ago

because of their primary introduction to the market, titan v's and other workplace cards have no use for SLI since it is mainly for gaming optimization. workplace cards have a type of software synchronization rather than a physical bandwidth bridge.
