Description

This is my first PC build a.k.a. Beast Mode. I will be using this computer for livestreaming, and video editing, on youtube and twitch. Feel free to follow me on twitter, youtube, and twitch, account name: ExtraBigGamer. Please note that when I first built this computer my ram was from g skill and was colored blue. I later purchased the ram that I had originally wanted Corsair Dominator Platinum located in the parts list, so in some of the pictures the ram is blue which is no longer the case. Also if anyone decides to build this computer, you do not need any more fans, the case comes with fans which are super quiet and amazing. I had purchased a bunch of led fans which I will have to return because there is no additional space for them. You do not need to overclock this, there is nothing it cannot handle with lightning fast results. If you must overclock it be sure to invest in a liquid CPU cooler, otherwise the one in the parts list is more than capable of cooling this beast.

3D Mark Demo Score: 13,117

Nice case. I own a Silverstone FT05 with the same kind of internals. You might want to reorient your heatsink from aiming sideways to up and down? It keeps the air flow consistent

Thanks for the suggestion I will look further into that!

Here's another build similiar to yours to illustrate: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/smQV3C

I am starting to see this case more often. How would you rate it ? Seems pretty cool . Also, my noctua nh - d14 cools pretty good for a little overclocking :-)

I really love the case it was designed really well, I would recommend it. Agreed noctua has some quality cpu coolers :]

You bought a $500 motherboard, a $900 unlocked processor, and a $90 CPU cooler... and you don't intend to overclock.

okay

I will overclock and buy a liquid cpu cooler when more demanding games come out and I don't average 60fps. For the time being I have a 4k monitor that only goes up to 60hz, try finding a 4k monitor with over 60hz, there is none. So if I cant go over 60fps then there is no need to overclock since I am already at 60fps.

With that cooler I'm not sure why you'd switch to liquid for overclocking, that's better than most if not all liquid coolers of the same price and should be quieter

i dont understand why everyone puts a 5960X inside their computer. why not build a dual Xeon? Dual E5-2630v3. it about 1 GHz lower then the 5960X if u moderately overclock the 5960X ( the Xeon turbos up to 3.2GHz ), however, u get twice as much cores and threads, and have support for ECC RAM. also, its more reliable and looks cooler. so, can anyone explain to me why everyone buy the 5960x instead of the dual Xeon which is around $50-200 more expensive depending on where u buy it? im building a new computer soon so i need to decide whether to go with the i7 or the Xeons.

Depends what you want it for. If it's mostly gaming, the i7

Beautiful, but I am curious what made you choose that case. You have a big budget and in my opinion there are nicer cases. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I think this would look a LOT better in something like a 750 or 900D

Thanks, it was very hard for me to decide on the case, mostly because my options were very limited due to the size of the cpu cooler, and that I wanted the case to be black. Do not be fooled by the looks, this case is extremely well designed with amazing air flow. It is super easy to take apart and gives you tons of room to work with, and also just barely fit my cpu cooler. I would recommend this case to anyone.

I didn't forget about the TI, my decision is based on what is better, not what is more affordable. There is no one that can convince me that the Ti is better, 6gb to 12gb is huge difference, and I wasn't going to settle for this build.

There is no reason to go with a Titan X over a 980 Ti as they get similar and in most cases, better performance on a 980 Ti when OC'd (compared to an OC'd Titan X), unless they do 3D stuff, even in 4k the 980 Ti provides better performance. Maybe he thought it was cool to add all the most expensive stuff.

For this build I wanted to go with the best components regardless of price, I was aware that the TI is capable of running the same games. The Titan has twice the GB as the TI, therefore it is better in my opinion. Games like GTA 5 at max graphics utilizes half of the Titans GB's which would be about all of the TI's. In the future there will probably be more demanding games, and I will have to buy another TI or overclock, when the Titan would handle it just fine, but to each their own.

if u really want the best components, u should not be buying a 5960x. people say its the most powerful chip on earth, which is somewhat true if u are talking about consumer chips. take a look at Xeon E5-2699v3 if you can afford it. 18 cores, 36 threads, turbos up to 3.6GHz, 45MB L3 cache, 49.5MB total. and u can put 2 of them into your computer. yes, you can overclock the 5960x to like 5GHz, but thats still 8 cores vs 18 cores ( or 36 cores if u put 2 inside ). so... yeah

That would suck for gaming, most games could only utilise about 4 cores anyway so you want something with a better single core performance, in that sense the 4790k would be better

at least it will be better than the 5960X. the xeon has better single core performance compared to that 5960x anyway.
