Description

Hey guys I'm back with a bit of an update from the original build I posted.

You can find it here --> https://pcpartpicker.com/b/WtYrxr

If you are interested in any aspects of my build you can either refer to my original post above or ask me anything about it here. I'll talk about my impressions of the 980 Ti's below.

Also I moved since I last posted hence the change in the lay out.

So you might wonder why I would make a whole new build, rather than just updating the build above, when the only difference between the two are the GPUs. So to make a very long and rather frustrating story short, my R9 290x bit the dust after about a month of use. Luckily (after a bit of a struggle) I was able to get my money back. However the whole experience left me with a rather bad taste in my mouth for AMD cards, and with the announcement and release of the beast that is the GTX 980 Ti, I decided to go with NVIDIA. Couldn't be happier. It fits my build perfectly as far as having SLI in the H440, I love the way they look and the way my entire build has evolved to complement the color scheme of the cards. Needless to say the cards destroy anything I throw at them even with the near 4k res of my screen. I can run the Witcher 3 at native, ultra everything, always have a constant 60 fps and the cards don't get above 70 degrees C. But that is no surprise as thats what you could expect to come from NVIDIAs flagship GPU. Also as far as the updates to my color scheme I decided to just paint the fan rings silver, change the CPU cooler LED the match the GEFORCE GTX ones, and then just painted the back plates I got from EVGA white. I've very satisfied with the way it turned out. So fresh. So clean.

Thanks for the read and hope you enjoyed the build/builds!

You should post your process on the tubes you put on your cpu cooler for convenience xP.

Super sexy. All around best parts, I'd say!

How's the monitor? How does the width feel when you play games?

  • 48 months ago
  • 3 points

Lol alright. Its pretty simple, just measured the length I needed, then cut the tubes down the middle (like you would a hot dog bun). Because the tubes themselves are pretty rigid and wouldn't contour the way I wanted as to hide the cut, I had to stick them in a pot of boiling water until they were malleable. The ends near the CPU started to flare out because of the tension so I just used two zip ties to keep everything looking clean and professional.

Also I can't say enough about the monitor. Its so amazing for gaming. If you are looking for an next-gen experience this is the monitor for it. Honestly when I go back to my console and play on a 16:9 ratio it feels like I'm playing on some square old CRT or something.

Super sexy, and can you tell me what happened to the 290x, maybe through a PM? And didn't you void the warranty by painting it? I'm going with the same case... just the case lol. I'm going red and black on a 4790K because the best board for OCing (for the money) is the VII Hero (IMO) and it's red and black sooooo. That monitor looks damn amazing though.

Yeah I'll hit you up soon. But I don't think you can go wrong with the VII Hero. I was considering it but it didn't make the cut because of the black and red haha. Good luck on your build!

One of the best builds I've seen on this site! Excellent attention to detail and balanced colour scheme. Also, if you ever get bored of the green Geforce logo on the cards, you can always scrape the green layer off which reveals the white LED (I think white a white logo on the cards would look better, but that's just my opinion of course :)). An example of the end result: https://youtu.be/JCclKJQGPKs?t=2m28s . Once again, marvelous work!

  • 48 months ago

Yes I was definitely considered this but decided against it after my whole R9 290x incident. I decided that painting the back plates were a satisfying enough solution. And the green is kind of growing on me. But as always, thanks for the input and the likes.

This is probably the best build in terms of looks I have ever seen. I just stared at each picture. Then omg your graphics cards. I thought this was kind of overkill for a 1440p monitor but its cool as ****. Also there is no such thing as overkill you are just making your computer better. :) Nice build!

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey thanks man! Glad you liked it. And as far as overkill, maybe, but I just like to call it futrue-proofing! But definitely for a normal 1440p monitor two 980 Tis is way way way too much. But with the ultrawide ratio the monitor ends up being more like 3k and preforming closer to the benchmarks of that of 4k. I could have gone with normal 980s, but with the 6 gbs VRAM and the Titan X performance, for only 100$ more, how could I say no to the Ti's?!

  • 48 months ago

Are you getting the EVGA one? Mine is the long one and will fit with one VISIBLE PCI-e slot between the two cards. Nvidia doesn't make a bridge that supports that distance. Theirs are either too long or too short.

Yeah man that's why I'm asking I bought the long NVIDIA one and it doesn't fit, on like ANYTHING. but yeah I have just got the same one as you have, awesome. I have the ACX 2.0 980ti's though, hopefully it looks alright. Thanks for letting me know though!

Hi! I like the H440 Case a lot but was skeptical about the ventilation since there are small spaces for air intake which could choke the fans. Have you faced any problems so far?

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

H440 has a bad rap for having bad airflow, which isn't completely false, but not as bad as people make it out to be. I will admit I was a little skeptical too when I bought it but with the right set up, I have no worries now. With these silent style cases, cooling really all comes down to how many GPUs you're planning on putting in it. The H440 will do just fine with a single GPU, really no need to upgrade the stock fans or have any concern. However, if you're looking to do a multi-GPU set up like me, this is where the H440 has a harder time. If that's your plan, here as some my suggestions. I replaced all the stock fans in the front with static pressure fans since the design does restrict airflow and I've found that that's helped. Also having had both the R9 290x (aftermarket cooler) and the 980 Tis (reference coolers) I definitely think the blower style is a better option for this case. Because the airflow is more restricted, the blower style coolers help to exhaust more of the GPU's hot air the out of the case rather than just blowing it back into the case like the aftermarket coolers do. For most games my Tis sit at about 60 degrees. For some games that are very graphically intense (the Witcher 3 running at native res, 60 fps, ultra everything, for example) they typically heat up to about 70-75 degrees. Also if I know what I'm going to be gaming like that for a while, I'll pop the front panel off. I know its not the most glamorous solution, but with that, and my fans cranked up, it drops the temps about 5 degrees. You don't buy the H440 for its cooling abilities, you buy it for looks. I hope that helps to resolve some of your concerns.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks for the reply. I really like the aesthetics of the case and it's one of the few cases with complete steel build. I have a single GPU, the Asus Strix GTX 970 coupled with Core i7 4790k. Do it think it'll be a problem since the fans of the GPU doesn't kick in until temp reaches 68 degrees Celsius?

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

No I think you will be just fine. But if you're still worried or if you run into temps you're not comfortable with one the best things you can do to help the airflow in that situation is upgrading the rear exhaust fan with something similar to the Corsair AF 140 I have. Like I was getting at before, non-reference coolers do a great job cooling the GPU itself but leave the rest of your case hotter. Upgrading your exhaust fans will help to balance that out.

Hey i found your old pc when i was looking at the g910 origin spark and i was wondering is the keyboard good or not also is the 5820k and the x99 mobo good
im thinking of getting that thanks morgan

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

So my thoughts on the Origin Spark: really cool keyboard, feels good, looks good, but at $179.00 its insanely over priced, I just couldn't justify spending that much on my keyboard so I ended up returning it. So it all depends on if its worth it to you. And as far as the CPU and mobo are concerned I couldn't be happier. If you're looking for the top of the line, the 5820k is pretty much all you need. There is almost no point on going with the 5830k unless you are looking to do some like triple or quad GPU setups.

My initial thoughts would be why? What absurd resolution are you trying to run?

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

What was the incident with your 290x and do you think it's okay if I paint my 980tis white or will that void the warranty. Also do you think it would be okay to use the AF140s on my 110i GT because it's a 280mm rad and they don't have SP140s ? But honestly this is an amazing build. I'm building something like this the first week of august except black and white and it's a Z97 Krait. Also what is you max system tdp and how many fps do you get on average in games?

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

So my 290x judged died. It would work for every day stuff but anytime I tried to play games or put some stress on it it was just give black screen and had to reset. And yes if you paint and or modify your 980s you can kiss your warranty goodbye. Definitely only use static pressure fans on your rad. Those airflow fans won't do anything to move air, they aren't designed for it. Also are you looking for just my overall system temp? And as far as fps goes it all depends on the game. But I can max any current game at my native res at a solid 60. Never seen it drop and don't think I will for a good couple years.

  • 47 months ago

I meant as in like your max wattage. idk if you have those numbers. If you do that'd be great :) and I called MSI and they said I can do it without voiding my warranty so I'm truly happy with that :D

I don't have the exact numbers no, but my best guess would be around 800-850.

Oh okay. I decided to go with a 1000w psu instead of getting an 850 watt so I don't put it under stress.

Hi OP, I have the same case as you and i was thinking of upgrading my GPU to the same as you have got.

My question's are the following:

  1. What are the Temps of the GPU when under load from games and what are the idel temps as well.

  2. What are the fans like on the GPU as i have never gotten a referance GPU before when it is blowing air out of the back of the GPU.

  3. What are the temps like inside the case?

  4. should i go for a better case fan for the back of the case as i have the default NZXT 140mm fan.

  5. What is the power consumption like? and what would be the minimum power supply i need as i have a 750w EVGA currently

hopefully you can answer my questions.

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point
  1. Idle temps they are around 40 C, under heavy load in games (like the Witcher 3) they get to 70-75 C.

  2. The fans on reference nvidia cards do fine. Obviously aftermarket coolers will do better at cooling (as that's what they are intended to do). The reason I went with reference coolers however were 1- because of looks and 2- Blower style coolers do better when in SLI and also help keep your overall system temp down. I made a comment about this somewhere in here.

  3. Case temps sit around 30 C and go up to about 36 C under load. I live in Las Vegas and my ambient house temp sits around 78 F.

  4. I upgraded mine right out of the gate so I can't speak very well of the stock 140 fan. My reasons behind this were 1- needed the fan to match my build and 2- I compared the specs of the stock and my current fan and on paper the Corsair fan is all around better.

  5. I don't know my exact power consumption is but I would guess my build draws about 800w at load. As for your minimum PSU you need I couldn't say, it all depends the components of your build.

Hopefully that answered your questions, if you need me to clarify something or have more questions let me know. Always willing to do what I can to help!

Hi Love the build, i'm going for something very similar. I purchased the exact tubing you mentioned, however i made a mess of my first attempt at cutting it and wrapping it around the corsair tubing.

How did you cut it to make it not show the slit all the way through the white tubing?

Thanks =)

  • 45 months ago
  • 1 point

Cut down the side of the tubing that is on the inside of the natural curve. It makes the tubing still want to close if that makes sense. The stock tubing on the cooler is too big for the white tubing to completel cover so just position the tubing the slit down the back is out of sight. Also have you tried putting the tubing in boiling water for a bit? That makes it malleable enough so you can get it just the way you need it.

Hey! Just starting off, I have a very similar build to yours, and I do have a few questions, forgive me if they seem rookie, just trying to immerse myself within the building community to get the best understanding of what I am doing.

Question 1. Fans, Did you custom paint the fans? I cannot seem to find SP120's on the internet that have white bodies, and which I imagine you swapped out the fans on the Corsair cooler to the white SP120s. Some more info on this would be great.

Question 2. Why the intel SSD's? Aesthetics choice or performance?

Question 3. With the Silverstone Cords, did you purchase individually or as a set somewhere?

Question 4.
You have the exact same GPU set up I was planning on doing, loving it? I see you painted the backplates which I plan on doing myself.

  • 46 months ago
  • 2 points

Q1- Yep painted the fans my self, Corsair sells them in black and only black. Painting them is pretty easy, just google something like "painting corsair fans" and there's lots of videos on how to. I also painted the rings silver as they only come in white, red and blue. And yes I swapped the stock fans out.

Q2- Both. I knew I wanted to run a RAID set up, did some research, and found that the 730s were just what I was looking for.

Q3- Amazon sells the cords separately, you just pick the ones you need. Its simple and they're great.

Q4- Couldn't be happier with my TIs. I don't know if there is a game out there that I can't max at a solid 60fps on my monitor. Being able to experience games like the Witcher 3 on my current set up is worth every penny.

If you have any more questions, or if I didn't answer something the way you needed, please feel free to ask! I'm always happy to help!

Hello,

I am building a new pc and I have decided that I am going to get a 980 ti but can’t decide between the reference cooler or an aftermarket cooler. I am stuck because I really like the look of the reference cooler but have read online they are noisy and run really hot. In you experience is this true about the reference design because if so could go with an aftermarket one.

Many thanks,

  • 43 months ago
  • 1 point

Few things before I can give you my best advice

1- What case are you putting it in? 2- Whats your fan set up look like in said case?
3- And most importantly, how big of a load are you going to be putting on your card? (What types of games, resolution, settings, framerate, you know.)

Generally speaking tho, the biggest difference between the two styles is this- Reference/blower style cards will give you a lower overall case temp but a slightly hotter card. Aftermarket does a better job at cooling the card but give you slightly higher case temp.

I picked the reference style 1st because they do better in SLI than aftermarket, and 2nd because they just look so sexy. I am very happy with my decision.

Hello, thanks for your reply

I have a benq xl2430t 144hz 1080p monitor now but am looking to pick up a 1440p 144hz monitor in future and the benq will be my second monitor. Define r5 with all the modivents closed in the top

Kraken x61 as intake in the front, 140mm in back as exhaust and a fan in the bottom which would pull air directly in the blower fan (if I get the reference).

Like you I love the look of the reference cooler much more than any aftermarket cooler.

I see you have a backplate on your card is it this one (but in white) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/evga-gtx-980ti-backplate-for-acx-20plus-superclocked-and-reference-cards

Does the backplate do anything other than looking awesome?

  • 43 months ago
  • 1 point

Ok so with that set up your card should do just fine. I mean the 980 tis do like to get hot, but you can always adjust the fan profile on it to be more suiting to your needs (temp and noise wise). The R5 is a great case. If you like the style of the reference card then go for it. I think you'll be happy. I also would recommend a back plate. Helps with card sag and keeps the temp down a couple of degrees, plus makes the whole card come together.

Love your build! A couple of questions if this post isn't too old(researching my first build):

  1. Do your SSD's get hot sitting so close to the 2nd GPU? I want to go SLI in the future with a pair of 760's, and I'm glad I came across your build. I see how close they sit now, my reaction was oh wow, I hadn't thought of that.

  2. What are you using as your fan controller? I noticed on your OP that you didn't utilize the NZXT provided fan splitter. Am I correct in assuming there are enough fan headers on your mobo?

  3. Does the foam on the inside side panel behind the mobo tray interfere with your cabling?

  4. Lastly, Can you give some insight on making the jump to no optical drive? Do you use an external drive at all?

I appreciate your fan suggestions to the poster on here, I found them very helpful. I wasn't sure of the negative cooling reviews, I was even thinking of possibly modding the case at the top for this reason, by adding a cut-out with some mesh inserts, or perhaps a 3D printed extension/extrusion. All in all, thank you for your beautiful build!

[EDIT] 1. Not 760's but EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SuperSC ACX 2.0+

  • 41 months ago

Hey thanks for the comments and questions, always here to help out fellow builders.

  1. During normal use- not in the slightest, when I have my cards under load- yes they can heat up (especially the back one) but its never anything to be worried about. You shouldn't have anything to worry about in your build.

  2. I just have all my fans connected to the headers on my mobo and use an application called Speed Fan to control it. All new mobos nowadays can control both 3 and 4 pin fans so I don't really see the need for an extra fan controller, plus I don't really have a logical place to put one in my build. I also didn't want to use the fan splitter that comes in the case because I wanted to have individual control over all my fans, and the splitter doesn't accommodate that. I have a custom fan curve set up for each of my fans depending on the temp inside my case which keeps everything quiet when I need and ramps things up when it starts to get hot. Also just as a note, I have my two top fans on the radiator connected to a splitter which I plugged into the CPU fan on my mobo so that I can control them as one. Its not necessary but it just fit my needs better.

  3. Yes and no. It can be a tight fit when closing the back panel but the foam just gets slightly indented around where the cables are. You just have to be more conscience when routing your cables back there. I just stuff all my excess down in the bottom next to the PSU. Its not a problem at all and promotes good cable management!

  4. When putting together my build, finding a case WITHOUT an optical drive was a must. I wanted to go with a smaller case and most of the mid sized towers out there with drive trays are pretty ugly IMO. My last computer had an optical drive and I used it twice, if that, in the 5 years I had it. It all comes down to what you'll be doing with your computer. For some, (whether its for work, or school, etc) have a optical drive is necessary, but I'd guess for must of us out there there's really no need. Pretty much anything that comes on a disk you can get digitally. I've never run into a time where I NEEDED one and doubt I ever will.

Hope that helps to clear some things up, and of course, if you have any other questions or need some more clarification, I will happily answer. Good luck on the build!

Awesome build. Thinking about picking up the same motherboard, but Im not sure about something. Could I...if I wanted, run 3 way 980ti's have enough room, and still use the M.2 drive? It's kind of vague on the sites I have been looking at. TIA.

If you're trying to run all that you definitely should get the deluxe version of this board. The pro version I have wouldn't cut it.

Is the case cooling good? Cause I've heard a lot of people complaining about poor airflow

It's good, but it's definitely not great. If I'm ever gaming for a long time I'll just pop the front cover off and it helps things a lot.

Can someone tell me which Direction or Were he put the Fans at And if he change the front fans on the case.

I can tell you, since I am the "he" you refer too. I replaced every fan in the case. The 3 fans on the front are all the Corsair 120mm SP fans which act as intake. I also have those same fans on the top of the case on the radiator which at as exhaust. The rear fan is the 140mm AF again from Corsair. Hope that helps.

Not unless you want to void your warranty and sand off the green paint. Otherwise no.

Yeah, I wasn't really a fan of any of the 97 boards and loved the look of the Asus x99s. And sure the 4790K is a best but the 5820K is no slouch either.

So here's my thoughts. I bought this monitor looking for the most immersive experience I could get and something higher res than 1080p. After some research I knew I didn't want to go 4k (because of the whole scaling issue with window, important to me since I work from home) and was looking at the 1440p options. I've never been really liked the idea of multiple monitors (for gaming at least) because of the bezels. So when I came across this monitor I knew I had to have it. Its definitely pricey but for my situation it was perfect. I really can't say enough about it nor can adequately put in words how amazing it is to game on it. You just have to see it to believe it. So that's just my thoughts. The set up you shared does look nice, definitely a lot more screen than this. You'll just have to way the pros and cons to see whats best for you. Hope that helped.
