Description

Replaced w/Janus 2.0 here http://pcpartpicker.com/b/XtM8TW

As this was the end of my father and the beginning of my new life running his company I decided to name this Project Janus. A Tattoo of mine now marks the occasion. As always I love and miss you Dad...

I kept very few items of my original design and also decided on an aesthetic upgrade as well. You be the judge of my accomplishment in that area.

First addition was even more fans and controllers (5 Controllers and 32 fans total). Next was a second and third disc drive to speed up my disc ripping ????. To do both of these required another case. So while I was at it I added another radiator. How to power such a monster ????? Well, how about a second PSU? 2500W Here we go... Let's speed it up a bit 4.6Ghz 5960X anyone? Man 1440p surround is rough on the VRAM. Should upgrade the cards too. Hrm 4XTitan X Hydro Copper SLI With 48GB VRAM aught to cover it. All this water I might as well cool the VRM/Board. Check???? Okay... Several K extra and I've built a Super Computer worthy of the name...

Heat... This now has 3 Radiators because the 5960x is a fire cracker in both speed and heat. Ripping movies has never been so fast but good god it runs 15-20c hotter than the 5930k w/less voltage. So the extra radiator and motherboard cooler were essential. I run Firestrike Tests at 4.6 but usually keep it clocked at 4.5 to prevent degradation from heat. You don't build something this expensive and not try to make it last. The Titan X's are really cool. They don't break 55c ever. Probably because I didn't mod the PCB and the highest Voltage I get is 1.275. I'm happy to be on the Firestrike leaderboard but I don't need in the top ten just to burn out thousands of dollars in hardware (I'm unsponsored). Speaking of heat, before anyone asks, I connected the cases w/industrial strength Velcro. It seems laughable but the need to be separable w/o much difficulty and they need to be air tight. It actually works quite well. I did have to mod both cases a fair bit to make everything line up well. If I were to do it all over again I might go w/900d's like most everyone else but I really like the look of these cases. I don't see or have yet to see any 900d's in white.

Watch it do TW3... That will blow your mind!

Megasteel32 8 points 42 months ago

Run the first edition of minecraft alpha on it and screen shot the frames. My $400 integrated gpu latop got 1000 fps... will the titans get in the millions?

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 12 points 42 months ago

It read 9999 on Fraps... lol

DaCookieMonster 1 Build 13 points 42 months ago

It's over 9000! haha. Nice build man. I'd be curious to know what your frame rates with triple 1440p is on Assetto Corsa, if you have it . :D I am also enjoying the tidy cable management. Thanks for sharing.

DeathTroll 2 points 40 months ago

Assetto Corsa = greatest racing sim ever created

Megasteel32 4 points 42 months ago

so it went so high fraps went "****. whats above 9999?"

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 3 points 42 months ago

I guess, it also showed 0000 and freaked out all over a lot of numbers... Was weird

You had to have FOUR titans just to rub in having a 5960x...

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 42 months ago

'lil bit...

A_shady_person 1 point 40 months ago

I'm pretty sure that even the 5960X isn't quit able to keep up with the Titans. If you've ever watched JayzTwoCents, He has a rig very much like this one but he ended up taking the 4th Titan X out because it wasn't performing any better than 3 but was still just adding heat to the loop. So believe it or not, the 5960X is the bottleneck in this build. Although, it doesn't matter at all lol. Still gonna run ultra 100+ fps on anything. Also, I'm curious about Fallout 4 FPS. Any word on if that could happen?

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 40 months ago

It can't because the game creators in all their wisdom decided not to make the game work with SLI. For that matter neither did the monkeys that made Assassin's Creed Syndicate or Arkham Knights... It's sad that the creators of modern titles only want to make console games they can port.

A_shady_person 1 point 40 months ago

I understand man. I don't have any kind of SLI going on or anything but I do have a 21:9 monitor and let me tell you, they sure don't think scaling is important at bethesda. I had to tweak fallout 4 for almost 2 hours after I got it just so it would run at native res. Otherwise it was just a little box in the middle of my monitor with weird resolutions and stuff like that. They really don't care much about PC optimization anymore.

DarrenMc 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Good thing for Moba's eh? They're a huge population on PC. Pc is amazing. Only if more people had the knowledge and will to build a pc, even a budget 300 dollar pc would do. A majority of games support controllers especially the xboxone version. The only legitimate excuse I can believe is, it's the community. The console has a wider fan base whether it be Microsoft or Sony. Oddly enough microsoft is pc so there is a lot of driver support. Sony, is the only one to begin cross platform, Rocket league supports it as well as ff14 online. I found a post about blizzards new game Overwatch. It's quite the topic. haha

True, it's a refrigerator... :P

SR91 1 Build 4 points 42 months ago

I'd probably have some kind of breakdown from trying to figure just what to do with this machine let alone with those 4 Titan X's. I feel overwhelmed just from looking at the pictures and parts list and it's not even my computer. +1 for all that power (physically and literally).

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 3 points 42 months ago

I can't play a single game more than a day... I keep thinking, wonder what this game looks like and switching over.

SR91 1 Build 2 points 42 months ago

I bet it'll destroy EVERYTHING (games,productivity software, etc) it opens and looks fantastic doing it, maybe except certain benchmark programs(?). Either way it's definitely a force to be reckoned with and will definitely last you a long time. I hope you enjoy it as it's certainly something to be enjoyed.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 42 months ago

20 on the Planet for Firestrike Ultra and when they accept the 355.84 developer driver I'm using now it'll be #19

SR91 1 Build 2 points 42 months ago

Good luck with the benchmarks and here's hoping nothing gets fried in the process.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

Never!

Funny Anecdote - I was playing TW3 today and had the AC cranked. Blew the breaker in my office. Was pulling 2200 watts from the wall on this monster and lord knows what the AC was pulling... No ****

I think you need to add just a few more horses to keep all those watts in check.

Already bought a house, it's 4k sqft ;)

floridaboz 4 Builds 2 points 42 months ago

Sounds like plenty of space to have a nice computer room

DeathTroll 3 points 40 months ago

Bro, I bet that thing could run any game at max settings at 4k resolution at 150+ fps, but there is one game that I bet it cant run. It's called Minecraft. Not many people know about it, but it is the most graphically intensive game in the world. I bet you couldn't reach 20 fps.

YyvoN 3 points 39 months ago

Take away the fans, go to Antarctica, and see how long the continent holds its shape.

JR3538 2 points 42 months ago

also next upgrade should 3 3440x1440p that would be awesome to see

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

I would but games are not set up well for that. It generally stretches the image on anything past two monitors so the ideal would be two buuutttt, no one wants a big ugly bezel where their character should be so 3 is the deal.

JR3538 2 points 42 months ago

oh okay but awesome build non the less

razingtonbear 1 Build 2 points 42 months ago

What did you use to paint the ROG SLI bridge? I'm looking at getting one myself but have been thinking about ways to best change the logo from red to green. I had settled on using some vinyl with adhesive on the back to fill it in, but I like the way yours came out.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 42 months ago

I actually sanded the red off and soldiered a white light in place of the red one. You'll see when you take it apart.

I was a big fan of your original project, really glad to see you're keeping it going! (also, I have a portrait of my old man as a part of the 3/4 sleeve on my right arm. respect!) I just placed the final parts order for my own x99 build and should have it posted in a couple of weeks. You're an inspiration haha

Sadly I have no idea, they just really love their ROG colors.

spiketamara 2 points 40 months ago

and yet i have a fealing it can still lag out on bloon tower defense 3 on multiplayer lol no but seriously if it did id be afraid, anyways normally this is where id say all sorts of changes and how you could have saved money doing this or that but beings you seem to just have a money tree in your back yard all imma say is OMG how did you max out all the cores? to me this seems a bit excessive but if your multi tasking a **** ton of things wile rendering a home made movie you made up digitally and playing crisis on 4k ultra settings and wanting to do a few other things well i suppose you may need this rig other then that this is WAY above what anyone should ever need

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 40 months ago

You would think but omg no. I usually only get about 50-70fps maxed on modern games. Then again I use game settings that no one ever touches. I go to "ultra" then I move everything else all the way over as well.

spiketamara 1 point 40 months ago

ah so your like my buddie but his rig is FAR cheaper, so far i think their has only been 2 games he cant completely max out like that or it screws with his frames too badly

Freefallninja 2 points 37 months ago

That's when you know you made a good computer

Bobbyguy 1 Build 2 points 38 months ago

I think you have the record for most fans on a single build on PCPP. Great build though. Still don't understand the 3 disk drives but was laughing my *** off at the picture with 3 fan controllers and 3 disk drives.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Yeah, the disk drives were for "ahem..." operations of a possibly frowned upon/illegal operations set

Yes but Crysis is so poorly optimized... wish they had a DX12 version of it.

Put a 6950X in it when it comes out!

Rendon84 2 points 37 months ago
  1. Why that many fans?
  2. How'd u get the money?
Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Fans I think is simply for overclocking and heat dissipation. The longevity increases as heat decreases (to a point). So, I just put an inordinate amount in and a lot of radiators. Even as is I still get the CPU to 70's in well optimized games. The money came with time, I have been buying/selling/upgrading for 6 years until this point. I didn't get it over night.

evangs1 2 points 37 months ago

Now you can actually play Unity!

Skolei-Meister 2 points 35 months ago

have u not seen linus video about that if you add more gpus it doesnt add more vram oh btw i have nothing to say about this build... its just mindblowing

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

Yes it does not add more VRAM on DX11 Systems using alternate frame rendering. DX12 Games have the ability to use VRAM separately based on the needs of the section of the screen they are covering. No game to date does this but they will quite regularly in the future. Also, this build is going to be replaced in a week or so with what is essentially the same hardware aside from aesthetics. I built a case from the ground up, including lighting. Have hard tubing this time and 2 cooling loops.

Omg are you sure you aren't the CEO of Apple or Microsoft or Google, I was scrolling throught 4-way SLI builds hoping to see at max $4k builds but... NOPE, you spend 5x that amount, I just bought myself an $800 PC but man this PC makes me feel like I'm still using my dad's 5 year old Dell PC with an Intel i3 550 and Intel HD Graphics 4600 :(

Still very awesome build we should be best friends :D (maniacal laugh)

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

I'm a VP actually and not one of those companies, $800-$25000. Doesn't matter as long as we all have fun.

PCIntake 2 points 41 months ago

Agreed xD, I love the way the screen on the bottom is positioned, makes the setup very practical

cmulcahy0115 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Nice build! But why would you pay $205 for a windows 10 OS? lol

For the "Developers" version. Only version that gives an inherent ability to ignore updates.

NickStebs93 1 point 41 months ago

Tfw your cpu costs $100 more than my build.

Dr.Swag 1 point 41 months ago

You don't have 48gb of vram... Only 12. SLI doesn't add vram, only uses whatever the single card comes with.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

Do you understand the concept of AFR? One card at a time? No you don't have 48, you have four cards with 12. Now, that's only on DX11. On DX12 based it's set to whatever portion of the screen each card covers so it sort of stacks. It's easier to say 48 then to type out a big long explanation like this.

Dr.Swag 2 points 41 months ago

Oh my bad. Didn't realize the DX 12 has changed it up. :)

Gh0st_1095 1 point 40 months ago

Hi could you review my build , thanks http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Gh0st_1095/saved/Mf3D4DDD Would love your advice on it. Yes I'm putting custom water cooling in it.

Nice build and nice job on that MoBo mod/paintjob. But at the other hand its a waste of money in my opinion :/ But I upboated anyways :D

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Mmm, it's a monster though. I think I really want more DX12 titles to even the CPU overhead out and not Bottleneck the cards.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

Where do you even put that many fans? How do you even have enough fan headers and fan controllers?

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Most of them run off of http://www.amazon.com/Swiftech-8W-PWM-SPL-ST-Way-PWM-Splitter-Sata/dp/B00IF6R4C8/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1449288922&sr=8-6&keywords=motherboard+fan+splitter

Also, I have 2 full towers and in some places 3 way push pull (on each side of the radiator) which means on a normal radiator w/3 fans I have 12-18.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

Okay, I just can't imagine screwing in over 30 fans. I need one of those splitters though, I'm running some off molex. My PSU only has space for 3 sata cables.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

The SATA/Molex ones are not bad but they kill your cable management.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

Well, what other option do you have?

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

Running ports off of your Motherboard and splitting like I did...

GibbsCraft 1 point 38 months ago

You have too much money

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 37 months ago

Six years worth

Proward 1 point 37 months ago

Just to clarify, you built an entire new computer, not just upgrade old parts?

Proward 1 point 37 months ago

Just a crazy though, you should buy 3 28" 4K 2ms monitors and place them abov your 144hz monitors. 144hz for competitive games. 4k for single player games.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

Essentially, kept nothing except a few hoses and such.

mike.x.cao 1 point 37 months ago

Why do you have 32 fans?........

DKrait 1 point 37 months ago

Awesome Build! :D but... can it run space invaders? :P

Proward 1 point 37 months ago

Two things I'm really confused about. 1. The case has four 5.25" bays, how do you have three optical drives and three fan controllers? 2. Why did you paint the motherboard red? IMO White would've worked better. Still ******* badass though, and I'm sorry about your father.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 37 months ago

I painted it white not read and I have 2 of the same case melded into one. And thanks!

lorenzog.music 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Awesome build!

Just one question: What do you do with 3 optical drives?? Just wondering

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

I rent Blu Rays from the video store and then "borrow" them permanently... "Allegedly"

lorenzog.music 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

..and you need three blueray drives to "allegedly" "borrow" "permanently" blueray DVD?

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Basically... Movie Rentals/borrowing from friends...

xJeffro826x 1 point 34 months ago

How is the refresh rate on that touch screen monitor? I'm looking at building a new rig for game development, YouTube, and live streaming. I was planning on using a touch screen monitor to keep an eye on my chat and manage my iTunes music, along with maybe a few more things.

Kylaralthor submitter 4 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

It's pretty good BUT, a touch screen monitor has to be the primary monitor for touch to work. A GSync Monitor must be the primary monitor to work. So, as you'll see in my Current build (Link: http://nz.pcpartpicker.com/b/XtM8TW ) I took out the touch screen.

xJeffro826x 2 points 33 months ago

Yeah, I'm personally noticing that I haven't been using the touch screen as much as I thought I would. I might just stick with the 2 4k monitors and invest in something like a drawing pad instead.

Payofcoby 1 point 33 months ago

Wow, that's a lot of Case Fans Also, how do Fan Controllers work?

I set the speeds to increase or decrease depending on the temperature in the bios. The Controllers just disseminate the signal to multiple fans at once.

Loool GTX 1080s come out and you spent 1k on each titan

This was a year ago... Why do people not get that? And there are some 4Way 1080 scores on Firestrike Ultra. My score is higher.

Ermahgerd Sorry I thought it was a recent build xD

Yeah the 1080s still need configuring and optimizing for sli.

But can it run club penguin?

Wouldn't you need a more powerful power supply to run all 4 of those Titans?

I used 2 PSU's in my next build. 1 x 1500 for 2 cards and CPU, 1 X 1000 for 2 Cards and some fans.

Honestly only a day to build but saving for it and slowly upgrading over time... 6 years!

Not true actually, these tests are done based on standard settings. They do not factor in VRAM or the game's CPU separation. If a game can spread the load onto all Cores of a CPU the Titan X wrecks... I can play Battlefront on 3X4k monitors with maxed settings because of it's CPU spread. And regardless of the ****** lack of a storyline and online only play that is not for everyone the engine for that game is the Future of gaming. As DX12 becomes main stream and people wan't the VRAM more and more it wrecks Kingpins all day every day... But, if you don't believe me my cousin has the exact setup you speak of and I can go maxed settings on every game but he cannot... sooo...

Oh you shouldn't allow Ram to become VRAM... And yeah people love the TI but the Pipe of the Titan X and the VRAM really make it versatile. It's the only card capable of 4K Surround (been playing 4k Surround on Battlefront) and dear god it's amazing...

Also, at MAX settings VRAM in 4K surround on the one and only DX12 game is only 7GB

Go for it, honestly swapping to 2 Way 1080ti's soon so it's meh. Hopping out of the Benchmarking scene and just gaming.
