New 4K gaming and video editing build!!!!!

by lxyfutures


Hi everyone!I just finished my build yesterday and since then I run a lot of benchmarks on it and it works just fine. i7 5930K is a real beast but sadly because I'm a totally troll so I don't know exactly how to Overclocking so I just use asus's bios OC it to 4.1Ghz.

X99 sabertooth motherboard has great quality and looks beautiful.But to be honest I'm not totally satisfied because the two PCI/e slots on it they are too close, and the bottom card would be much cooler than the upper one which makes me a little upset because in the 3D mark the upper one hit 85 degrees. So not cool really.

About ram.Yeah it's good,and I really don't know anything about it except that it can work,that's all I know...

SSD.Samsung's 850pro works just fine and give me a really fast speed so I highly recommend it.

About 390X...hmm...If you are a gamer want to play some 2K game using this card,I think it's a great choice. But if you want to build 2way CFX and play4K game,then I don't really recommend it...Because all I know is that one 980ti can actually do the same thing except fps may drop a little but single card will has less bug.

Case and PSU ,they all works fine so...

About this monitor.It is the most great monitor I've ever used. 4K, ips panel, freesync(which I really can't feel it),just wonderful. And the price, not so expensive. So consider it my friends!

It is not mine.

BTw love the read and black setup

All of your choices are excellent... except your network adapter. Throw that thing away ASAP!

I sense... someone who has spent many an hour sobbing quietly at random wifi dropouts and inexplicable switches to B standard however many times you select N while screaming "I JUST ******* CHANGED THAT!"

Ahhh TP-Link... fun for all the family.

It wasn't totally useless. Ended up being a pretty decent dog toy.

Hi bro! Thanks for your advice! After 5 days using it ,I find that this adapter really not good...So you are absolutely right...But I don't know anything about network adapter, will you recommend me one? Thanks!

I use the ASUS PCE-AC68 and it works perfectly. If you don't feel like swinging $100 for one, then the PCE-AC56 is also very good.

Yeah, I know the pain of crossfire all too well. Great build, +1

maybe you could wait for the next AMD Fury card which will have 8GB of HBM2

the HBM ram is stupid fast because of the ungodly bandwidth.

harlequin018 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

The Fury X has all kinds of software issues. The technology is still too new and the drivers have a ton of incompatibilities. I returned my Fury X a few days after I bought it.

dragoon20005 4 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

that is weird did you buy it during the first launch?

coz the 15.71 is way more stable with the Fury X

i got a buddy of mind running dual Fury Xs

he did a review here


harlequin018 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Yep. I got it first day it was available. Drivers were extremely unstable and I was barely able to pull off a benchmark (FireStrike would score incredibly low). I was extremely disappointed as I really expected the Fury X to be the Nvidia killer. Returned it a few days later and now I run dual 980 tis. Couldn't be happier.

can you post pics of your build?

cant find any build under your name expect the ones with 770s

harlequin018 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

Of course. I'm out of town for work, but when I'm back I'll be sure to put some pictures up.

lxyfutures submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Yeah...I really like Fury...But just can't wait that long

I dont like crossfire, but a single Gtx 980ti will never be the same as 2 R9 390x's (For 4K)

somawhite402 0 points 43 months ago

This is true but at least with a single 980Ti you won't spend days/possibly weeks screaming "SCREW YOU AMD! THIS WAS WORKING AN HOUR AGO! WHAT THE....?!" and resisting the urge to throw the entire case out of the window... without opening it first. XD

AMD fanboy actually... that's why I know of the joys of Crossfire and it's strange ability to function perfectly and then complete lose the plot the next time you start up the same game.

I've just always considered it part of the price. You get comparable performance for less than the cost of SLI but on the downside you also have to spend more time troubleshooting,

Last time I used it I think I had an 900 watt EVGA PSU... and that was barely adequate for 2 4870's in Crossfire. I had to drop the CPU back to the stock clock due to the amount of power they both drew... and it did indeed get incredibly hot although that was mostly because of the 10 hard drives, the TV tuner card and an extra RAID card I had crammed in the case restricting airflow. The Crossfire in that system wasn't actually planned I just couldn't afford to pick up a replacement GPU and my friend had his old 4870 sitting around.

The current generation of cards should be fine with a smaller PSU though.

tl;dr In summary mostly it's not really worth the trouble unless you've got a multi-monitor setup or 4K etc

Nice build! How is the 390X crossfire for you? Performance-wise? Idle and load temps? Any current issues? +1!

lxyfutures submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

Hi bro! After about 5 days of finding the most stable driver, now it works great. Of cause for video and photo editing this baby is a overkill, for 4K gaming ,in most cases it works fine for example in 4K GTA5 I max out every thing and turn off AA, it can get a average 60fps, which is very impressive. But still it has some issue for example the upper card got 90 degrees...and sometimes after boot the monitor will black out for 1sec and came back to normal,and do this like 10 times. Which I think is a driver issue but I don't know how to solve it yet. After all ,I still want to recommend it because in normal 3A games, it will give you a better performance than a single 980ti, and ofcause, two graphics cards looks really pretty

somawhite402 1 point 43 months ago

I've had the monitor blacking out thing happen before in Crossfire. I seem to recall I had something set funny and Windows was trying to initialize the outputs on the second card instead of using the first one. I couldn't tell you exactly what it was since it was years ago but I did manage to get it to stop doing it after much Googling and swearing :P

lxyfutures submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

Thanks for help bro! This helps a lot. I'm gonna google it for a answer

Gotta say, I wasn't a big fan of those triple slot 390s, but they do look great in crossfire! Very beefy!

Yagzahoth 1 point 43 months ago

No physical hard drives? For what reason?

lxyfutures submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Hi bro! Actually I have HDD but they are in my friend's PC right now.So I just need to wait a few days

how did you get the red button on the side of the Corsair M65 Mouse Black

lxyfutures submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Hi buddy! It's a button and can slow the mouse move in fps games...Not very useful though...

Sp00n115 1 point 43 months ago

k thanks and nice build good job

Very neat +1. Love seeing crossfire build.

ImmortalGiraffe 1 point 42 months ago

bradsayz 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago
