Description

First build, that was fun! Let me know if it can use improvements. I don't like how the left 8 pin connector on the GPU almost touches the glass, but that's all I have. More RAM coming when I can afford it.

Edit: the title was a joke, this is a machine learning build to train deep learning models. It might still be overkill, though, we'll see! Also, it does seem to run games properly...

Edit: added cable management pictures

Edit: added CNN training speed comparison of the Titan RTX vs Tensorflow's Tesla K80 GPU, added my Arch Linux + bspwm setup (probably irrelevant here), added a few gaming pictures running FFXV at 4k Ultra, all settings on (GPU goes to 82 degrees in the h500i)

I train deep learning models

  • 7 months ago
  • 6 points

I recently went back to college to get my Masters of Science in Computer Science focusing on Machine Learning. (They do not have a focus on DL, but they have plenty of classes for DL). I too am building a new PC for deep learning, machine learning and other AI stuff. I do not game all that much. (I would like to, but I just do not have the time.)

I have already ordered the RTX Titan and have decided to go with the i9-9900K, 32 GB RAM and a M.2 drive. I only have three components that I need to do some research on since I am behind the times. MoBo, case, and to Optane or not. One caveat is that I might get a 2nd Titan in the near future. It is a slim possibility, but I want to have enough MoBo room, case room and power to support a 2nd Titan.

Based on what you have built and your experience with DL, do you have any recommendations or suggestion for a noob like me or any after thoughts on your build and what you might do differently?

Thanks.

Hello there! Congrats on the Master's!

For a Titan RTX, the recommended amount of RAM to not bottleneck the GPU is twice the GPU RAM, so 24GB x 2 = 48GB. If you go SLI, I think you'd need 48GB x 2 = 96GB, which should make the choice easier, since most mobo are capped at 64GB and there are only a few 128GB mobo. I didn't bother with it and assumed if I can afford to go SLI in the future, I'll probably be able to upgrade the mobo too. (and the CPU, like a Xeon processor with more cores)

Some mentioned the Hero XI has poor VRM which isn't great for OC, so you might look at a different mobo if you need to OC the 9900k.

I chose the case base on aesthetics. I don't think it has the best cooling but it's not terrible. The Titan RTX does get hot (82 degrees) when gaming at 4k with everything ultra (FFXV and PUBG, NO FORNITE SORRY)

The deep learning results I've had are great so far, although probably not significantly better than a 2080 Ti. I went with the Titan RTX in case I start training larger models, and to get full speed FP16 precision with FP32 accumulate (the 2080 Ti runs at half speed).

I'm also still trying to decide between Optane/HD or SSD as a secondary drive. I am currently dual-booting Windows 10 Pro and Arch Linux on the 970 Evo.

I hope this was more of a troll kind of thing or just someone else’s pc entirely. Your graphics card costs twice what a really decent fortnite build would be lol. Either way it looks really clean, and I hope you can add some photos and/or benchmarks for us lovely people to see.

I know! I watched the YT video while the mobo was on its way, and haven't bothered returning it yet. I'm not sure I will need to OC, as I use this build mainly for machine learning, and I don't think the stock CPU will bottleneck anything, or will it?

Get the x299 dark from EVGA. It's always on sale for 250 and has active cooling on the VRMs. Originally $500. Also sorry I called this **** fake lmao. You seemed like nothing but a troll

No worries, I was trolling a little, this is more of a machine learning than Fornite build.

Thanks for the recommendation, I haven't seen that one around. Isn't that an E-ATX mobo tho?

It may potentially at lower resolutions on CPU intensive games, I think you’ll be golden though, I’m planning a 9900k build but will definitely OC to 5.0ghz all cores just for the little extra :)

Your build is insane! I think I'll try to OC on the Hero XI and see what happens. I don't want to take everything apart and exchange the mobo unless I really need to.

you need a monitor with a better refresh rate than 60 Hz. There are 4k monitor out there that run at a rate of 165 Hz, which would better suit your 4k gaming. The new AMD Radeon 7, which is better than the 2080 ti, only costs about $700 and is 8k capable for running games. It is just a suggetstion for a gpu, not trying to tell you what to do here.

  • 7 months ago
  • 2 points

I can't afford 4k 165Hz, and gaming is secondary here, or I would've gone at least 1440p 144Hz.

I cannot go AMD as I need CUDA for deep learning, but thanks for the suggestion!

Have you more than 12 GB of RAM at a higher clock speed? I don’t think so. The Radeon 7, while not meant for gaming, is great for video editing and rendering, and beats out the 2080ti in both areas

How are the temperatures in the h500 when you're training? I was looking at that case too for a deep learning build, but I wasn't sure if there would be enough airflow since it's a bit small.

  • 5 months ago

I would recommend getting a 1440p monitor instead of a 4k monitor, this is because 4k monitors generally have a low frame rate. For the same price you should be able to get a 1440p monitor with at least 144hz.

What are the GPU temps like when training your models? Also, why the i9 instead of the i7? I guess at this price point the extra ~$100 between the two is nothing.

Hey mate, Both of the 8 pin on the graphics cards should be powered from two individual cables from the power supply rather than a splitter.

  • 1 month ago

Heya! Cool thanks for the tip! Can you elaborate on why? Haven't had any issue so far

  • 20 days ago
  • 1 point

You would want to use two cables to make sure the one cable isn't overloaded. This rule comes from the olden days where power supplies use to die whenever you did this. Even though power supplies are better now the rule still stands.

In my opinion the H500i is a scam and is not worth $30 more. Do you regret getting the H500i or not? Absolutely beautiful PC. I was going to do a purple build but then I decided to make a red and black build.

  • 7 months ago
  • 10 points

The guy spent over 4 grand on a PC. I sincerely doubt he's worried about saving $30 on one component.

  • 7 months ago
  • 3 points

I purchased both the H700i and H200i and found the "i" product to be both useful. I didn't really use the noise adapting feature, but the RGB controller and the fan controller totally comes in handy, especially if you are building in a Mini-ITX case where the number of fan headers is super limited.

I also think that the going rate of NZXT's cases are noticeably lower than MSRP. I was able to get my open box H700i for $130 and my scratch and dent H200i for $70 or 80. I think the "i" is totally worth the $30. Definitely don't think it is worth the extra $50 though. If RGB and fan controller is something you are looking for, drop the little extra money. If not, go with the non-i version.

I have not built a PC in about a decade and cases have come a long way. Do you mind explaining why you think the H500i is a scam. I know very little about cases and am just curious. Thanks.

  • 7 months ago

I have heard people saying this:

  1. Most modern motherboards have fan control built in so there is no need for the fan control in the case.

  2. The "vertical GPU mount" just means it is compatible with one, but you still have to buy one separately.

  3. The RGB LED's installed in the case are very dim and leave an ugly glare on the case.
