Please post more pics and post description. Very curious to see how they perform. +1 anyways for the dual RX 480s

Thanks man! I will update the description and add more pics when i've done some benchmarks! ;)

damcrac 2 points 30 months ago

Crossfire really fills this case well with SSD and Hue below them. +1

hatsimulator 1 Build 1 point 30 months ago

nice case!

Hows your fps with this? Think its worth getting an i7 over that i5 if Im upgrading from a 8350?

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 2 points 30 months ago

If you need the the power of an i7 then yes, definitely! Otherwise no. My 4690K handles everything from playing to rendering in Sony Vegas completely fine! And i'll update the description with a youtube video with benchmarks! ;-)

Thanks man. I think i might go for an i5 6300k.

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 2 points 30 months ago

Isn't the 6300 an i3? xD

DerpHero 1 point 30 months ago

It should be an i5 6600k cause there's no i5 6300k.

Very nice looking; those 2 480s look great together.

Good thing the TDP on them are significantly lower than AMD's other cards, or your PC would probably cause a blackout. Great looking build.

Thanks man! ;-)

You're welcome.

ATXON 1 point 30 months ago

Well there's something you don't see every day. Now you just to get a GTX 1080 and let us know how they compare. ;)

+1 but it definitely needs more pictures and some benchmarks wouldn't hurt either!

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

If you'll get Nvidia to send me a 1080 i'll do a comparison!

Wow... someone actually did it. All kidding aside, this build is looking fantastic. How do the dual 480's perform compared to other graphics cards?

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

They're both overclocked to 1288mhz so they perform very similar to a single 1080. I'm thinking of putting in a custom loop since the S340 has a space for resevoir and a pump on the cable bracket ;-)

Iron_Knickers 1 Build 1 point 30 months ago

As usual with crossfire/SLI configs of this caliber, they will either beat the 1080 or lose, but all results will be around the ballparck of the 1080.

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

Yup! And there will be added a custom loop to the CPU and GPUs when backplates are in production so they can be OC'ed alot more!

oo2k15 1 Build 1 point 30 months ago

Is 620 watts psu enough for x2 480?

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 2 points 30 months ago

2 RX480s uses MAX 350W in CF, so that's more than enough! ;-)

FormulaPC 1 point 30 months ago

What desk is that? I'm looking for one and that looks sick

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

It's just a used rise/lower desk i bought! ;-)

SneakyFox 1 point 30 months ago

umm why are the rx 480s so expensive i got mine for 250

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

I don't know man... they're like $350USD here in Denmark :'(

Cyuren 1 point 30 months ago

Would it be able to play games like league of legends, csgo and overwatch?

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 2 points 30 months ago

All at the same time ;-)

Vullkane 1 point 30 months ago

Nice build man, really liking the red and black theme! Does the h100i fit in the s340 well?

RasmusT submitter 8 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

It fits very well in the front! :-)

Kidhitler 1 point 30 months ago

OMG this looks great. DO WANT

ninjustice 1 Build 1 point 30 months ago

Did you actually pay $760 for two rx480's? Cause that's what two 980 ti's are going for nowadays

BiaxialObject48 1 point 30 months ago

Amazing build dude! Love the cables. +1

RichiBarri 1 point 30 months ago

awesome build¡ have u got any problem running games with crossfire?

Zroter 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

Please post more pics and post description. Very curious to see how they perform. +1 anyways for the dual RX 480s

shaheermir 1 point 29 months ago

Absolutely gorgeous build. I wanted to ask how your CPU / GPU temps are holding up. Also, if you could please explain your cooling config to a newbie here, I'd really appreciate it!

I am assuming you have the fans at the front pulling air in from the top, through the radiator, and then though the fans. All of this followed up by 2 exhausts at the rear / top . Is that correct ?

Would love to hear back from you! And again, great job with the build, looks stunning!

gugaprado10 1 point 29 months ago

What a damn great build! Just wanted to know how loud those rx 480s are because ive been hearing they're quite loud

jediperson 1 point 29 months ago

how loud is that corsair h100i?

The0Burger0King 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

What temps are you hitting with this setup?

LemurWithAFemur 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

How is this computer performing? Like any micro stutter or anything?

VECT0R 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

Awesome! Have you experienced any graphical issues with the CF config?

vpalkhiwala 1 point 26 months ago

Y u no use GTX 1080?
