$4000 Gaming/Media Production PC capable of 4K Gaming, Blu-Ray Playback and Recording, Sufficient RAM For RAM Scratch Disk.
super clean and nicely done!
Thanks! Not a hard build at all, parts were all straight forward to install.
Awesome build dude, love the colour.
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case is super easy to build in, and getting the Phanteks LED strip was a snap to put in - just make sure you don't use the adhesive on them. It will come loose after about 2-3 weeks, so I zip tied them to the case. Good video here describing the issue:
Nice build :p dat ram tho
Yeah, it's overkill. I've been playing around with ram-disk software a little too, but ... yeah... overkill.
This looks phenomenal, I second a request for more pics please.
Will post more pics when i clean up my messy cables - need to get some cable combs.
Napier was called a medicine for Homer Simpson :V...good build bro hehe
what kind of speakers are those?
Audioengine A5+ bookshelf speakers.
Great build, and looks stunning!
I have a question though, why did you pick the X99-e WS motherboard if you are only using 2x gpus?
And did you have any issues installing the large motherboard into the Luxe?
Honestly, I liked the aesthetics of the motherboard; I was also considering going three-way in the future (until nvidia decided to cancel support, but you can find enough videos and threads recommending against it anyway), and I also purchased a thunderbolt II expansion card to give me thunderbolt capability. So the potential existed to have 3-way SLI with a thunderbolt card, but haven't gotten that far yet.
No issues installing in the enthoo luxe. The case has plenty of room to work, and the motherboard is essentially an EATX form factor (even though technically listed as a SSI-CEB board).
Thanks for getting back.
I think you've done the right thing. It gives you great expandability in case you need it in the future and you will know your motherboard is rock solid because of the WS grade components.
I was thinking of getting the Enthoo Primo with this motherboard but after seeing your build I might just go with the Luxe :)
+1 For the clean build and sexy purple LEDs!
Did you have any issue with your ram? Did you need to overclock your cpu to run the advertised ram speed? I have 3200mhz 4x16gb cl14 GSKill F4-[B]3200[/B][U][B]C14[/B][/U]Q-[B]64GB[/B]GVK when I it was install the pc would undercooked it to 2133mhz or it would not operate.
Sounds like it's sticking to your default profile on the RAM. All RAM on X99 will default to speeds at 2133MHz or less. You can try to run one of the default X.M.P. profiles to overclock your RAM, just know it may alter the base clock on your CPU.
I haven't had any issues with my RAM. Installed with no overclocking, my RAM ran at 2133MHz, and my CPU was at 3.5 GHz with a 100MHz base clock and 35 multiplier. Initially for overclocking I used the default 3000MHz X.M.P. profile and overclocked the CPU to 4.5 GHz using a 125MHz base clock and a x36 multiplier, but I was pushing my temps pretty high (low 80s C) despite the large AIO cooler, so I backed off a bit to 4.375 GHz, with max temps staying within the 70-75C range.
LinusTechTips has a great overclocking guide for the X99 platform here (I relied on it heavily to overclock my system). Maybe check it out if you are still having issues:
If none of that helps, you can always try to RMA the RAM and replace the sticks. It is possible that they are faulty, but if they are functioning at 2133MHz, I don't think that they are. Hope this helps, and good luck overclocking!
