Description

I wanted to build a beast of a machine for GIS and gaming use, and graduation was coming up so I asked for just that. It runs crazy fast, tearing apart games and geoprocessing tasks alike. Initially I thought that I had a bad graphics card, but after I messed around with the power connectors a bit one of them clicked in and the card finally posted. This is my first build, I would like to manage the cables better so if you have any advice I would love to hear it!

This cable management gave me aids... but the part selection is very good and well-balanced. +1 :)

I laughed AND I would agree.

Definitely didn't know what I was doing with the cables when I built it... it'll be a good project to get them sorted out neatly though.

Use twist ties to seperate cables into groups (front panel, power, etc) whatever works Tucking the lose sections away also helps Upvoted :)

But seriously? A Titan? That's just overkill. I would have gone for a 780

Yeah, it's not the greatest... it is my first build though, cut me some slack!

Thanks! I will check that out. Getting those cables sorted out will be a good rainy day project.

Why didn't you save on the titan and get a gtx 780 with a 3930k?

I completed the build before the 780 came out. I also wasn't sure how much of a performance increase I would get with the 3930k vs the 3820, so I went with the latter.

the 3820, although not a "k" part,overclocks pretty well. 4.5 to 5.0 GHZ if you are lucky. Nice build but that titan could of been substituted for the better value little brother. In some cases the 780 is the bigger brother with the new aftermarket coolers. I understand you got the titan before the 780 came out so not your fault. All things aside, very balanced and well thought out build. You get a gold star. ... Wait i am taking the gold star back for the lack of any cable management :) Tidy those cables up and you get a gold star.

Cable mangement is not hard. My advice is to just stuff all the cables in the routing hole closest to the psu. Flip your psu so the fan is facing down. so the cables will be closet to the routing hole. Then just pull each cord out on the other grommets where necessary to reach the corresponding outlets. Then just zip tie everything in the back.

For 3k, that processor? Awesome build, no doubt, but that processor? Liquid cooled too...

Like I said, I'm new to this whole thing... I was excited to get it up and running and cable management was not really at the top of my list. When I have some extra time I am going to sort it all out, but for now it works fine.
