Description

Multi-Monitor gaming, programming and virtual machines use.

The power supply will be changed eventually, this one was salvaged from my previous build but it holds very well so far since the power consumption never gets over 550W.

CPU and GPUs are on stock clocks.

I straightened the graphics cards with a piece of wire since the weight of the cooler makes them bend a little.

GPU Load temperatures are achieved with Unigine Heaven with a setting giving an average of 34 fps on 5760x1080. GPU1 71C / GPU2 62C

CPU temperatures achieved with Intel Burn Test on 2 pass at High setting Average temp : 44 celcius.

Edit: New picture of the cleaned interior are added.

Why so many HDD's and only a 240GB SSD.

The ssd as boot drive and for precious files, the rest for whatever he does.

Thats FAR too much storage. Great build!

Why do you have 8 sticks of RAM in your parts list?

Probably because he has 8 sticks of RAM...

Maybe I should have asked, why get a board with 8 slots, fill all 8 with 4 GB sticks, and leave no room for expansion?

This is a good question.It would be better to get 4 8gb sticks and just wait to upgrade...but I doubt he needs 64gb of ram.

Hi! Thanks for the comments.

Yeah for cable management I have remade it partially i'll post a picture of the change.

Yep SSD for the os and raid 0 with 2 500gb hdd for all the games, mods, music and virtual machines drives. The 3 seagates are in raid 5 and they are used as backup and kind of more long term storage. As we say **it will happen and you better be prepared (failing drive or else).

The 8 slots are filled because of esthetic purpose I will probably not use the whole 32 GB unless I allow my virtual machines to do so but since the sticks would probably be discontinued later I bought a second set immediately.

As for the power supply I know the rating of those parts exceed the PSU but when you measure the current taken from those parts you realize that even in load, the power is way less than you think. What is more damaging is the peak current that the components use. For example when you first start your computer and all 5 drives spin up the current will skyrocket for a short moment until disc are up to speed. For now the peak power obtained is still under 700 watts but yeah I am going with the EVGA 1000G2 or P2 soon to prevent any bad luck.

A+ :)

Why you get an aftermarket cooler if you arent gonna OC?

Ok I took a new picture of the interior with the wires routed correctly ;)

to nathan316 : The LGA2011 series is not sold with a stock cooler like other i5 and i7 models. Why the SW H320 then? Well simply that if I ever want to fiddle with the clocks in the future, I will already have the right setup for it.

dammmmnnn that case is sweet, yeah cable management can be annoying, I feel like no matter how much i try I can never get the perfect cable management. Oh yeah, im too jealous of your dual 770s, i have to wait to get my second one to replace my cpu and mobo after i messed up my board overclocking..

You need a higher watt PSU. the 2 GPU's alone are around 460W. the CPU itself is 130. You would need around 750W or maybe even more.

Meh. If he's pulling 550W MAX he is okay. And if that's from the wall, then his build is only using 440W at 80% Efficiency.

Even if he was pulling a little over 700 he would probably be okay if he was measuring from the wall.

an 850W should be good.
