Description

Uses- Heavy Gaming, video editing, photo shopping. Its my primary computer and it runs amazingly.

i7 5960x - It's an absolute beast. Its amazing at multitasking obviously, and its so easy to overclock. Just crank up the voltage to 1.4 - 1.5 and it will be steady at 4.6 ghz

48gb of ram- I originally only had 16gb of ram for a really long time and I always ended up with only a a gig or two of ram left so I was left with the only choice of upgrading. I grabbed another pair of 32gb Crucial Ballistix and am usually left with around 8-9 gb left. My workload seems to be always increasing so keep in mind that I might use it in the future.

4x Samsung 850 Evo series 250gb - These SSD's contain my primary/favorite games like GTA, Just Cause, BO3, BO2, Crysis 3, etc. Its setup as a Raid 1 array so its only recognized as one drive.

Samsung 950 Pro - I got this drive recently and it has to be the fastest PCI-E SSD out there. My read and right is around 2.5 gigabytes not gigabits a second.

The bunch of hard drives- These contain my pictures, documents and data, I did not buy these, I took them out of older computers and just put them in. 2 of them are from 2006 and the 3tb is from 2011 as I did not anitcipate to find two other drives. The 3tb was used before in my old rig.

The good stuff... GPU's - The two 980 Ti's are beast to top off the rig. Its overclocked to 1300 megahertz and both go at 99% when gaming in 4K. Keep in mind, I have a secondary 1440p monitor.

The 760T - This is my favorite case of all. The doors are amazing, the interior is huge and I don't have difficulty fitting my hands in there and working it. I have had a Cooler Master HAF 912, a corsair Carbide 540, and some other cheaper cases, and this one was the easiest to have dealt with.

The DVD drives - don't bash me for buying dvd drives. I found these in my parents old computer that they weren't using along with the hard drives and just took them. One of the was a light scribe and the other was a blu-ray (lucky me)

TX 850 PSU - This PSU has been great so far. I'm cutting it close with the power my system draws and the PSU maximum, however it still runs!

Oh the cooling! - This was kind of a challenge for me as it was my first custom loop, however I got it done! I'm using 1/2 in inner diameter tubing and pumping a lot of water through. The PT-60S pump/reservoir combo is a gigantic 600ml resovior able to pump out a whopping 858 L/h only sad thing is, I thought it would be a little bit smaller so it can fit in my case. ITs sitting on the outside hanging from a wall. It's relatively quiet and good for the price. The Apogee XL is amazing in my opinion. Its gigantic size and beautiful aesthetics drew me in and I had to get it. The XSPC water blocks are, water blocks! nothing more than I expected, they light up which is great and its pretty good in cooling. I used some IC Diamond instead of the thermal paste it came with and my temps are pretty good.

That's next level stuff! Nice build. I would only add that some of the cabling could be put out of sight to make it a bit cleaner, but that's me being fussy. :) 2 x 980ti's!! - heavy gaming you say ?!

It is a nice build. Very high end obviously. Take some more pictures. 3 is not enough for that build.

Great build ! Pretty much what I put together for myself on PCPP every day and drool. Are you going to stick with the ketchup-and-mustard cables ? Get some sleeved ones to make this an even better looking build !

+1.2*1010 :)

Buys 2 980tis and a 5960x can't even buy a PSU with black or sleeved cables. Also buys 4 250gb SSDs is pointless just buy a 1tb or more. Then says its pointless buying sleeved cables yet buys 4 250gb SSDs instead of 1tb

+1 for cracking the $4k mark- but where is the completely overkill eighteen-hundred-watt power supply?!

Please tell me you aren't leaving the 5960x anywhere near 1.5v... Even 1.4v is extremely high for dailey use. With these Haswell e chips most people go to 1.35v max with custom water cooling. You should definitely look into reducing your voltage and lowering the clock if necessary if you want to save your processors life...

Amazing parts but cmon, do something about those cables. Its an open windowed case with lots of room for management. Oh and your PSU is wrong on the list lol
