Description

This is an update of my previous build "Project for Work and Play". I used the replaced parts to build a home/media server and update my office workstation.

I use this computer for a lot of different things. Yes the fans are loud when at full blast, but that is rarely the case. These fans are monsters but keep the build cool for the heat produced. I use this build to play AAA games, video edit, design in CAD, rendering, and pre process for 3D Printing.

The second screen is for my server/media computer. It also makes a great map screen that does not detract from the performance of my main pc.

Nothing wrong with a little bit of AMD... or a whole lot!

I started building a mild AMD build years ago on recommendation from a friend and it went out of control from there. I am not necessarily a fan boy or anything but I can say I have built 3 pretty stout AMD builds and would not have been able to build intel builds for the same money.

Good looking AMD build! My only question is, why did you put the GPU in the lowest PCIe slot? +1 for you anyways!

They probably did it so that you can see the ROG symbol on the motherboard.

For a couple reasons...yes to see the ROG symbol better, it stretches the cooling lines out, and it creates its own little airflow channel at the bottom of the case.

Roger that! I Was just curious because I've always read that it's optimal to put the GPU in the PCIe slot closest to the north-bride (the top one) for the best bandwith, if it works for you though keep on keeping on!

jeebus kwise...6 delta fans..how do you tolerate that? :O +1 for maximum noise tolerance!

"Yes the fans are loud when at full blast, but that is rarely the case." I usually wear my Kingston headset when doing anything where I need the fans. They actually make great white noise for getting work done in my home office.

That's a monster processor there. My 8320 is only running at 4.2 ghz right now...

I was actually able to get it to 5.28 but I wanted to be on the safe side since I do use this for work sometimes.

I am actually hesitant to upgrade anything due to this fact. It sounds like a car when it goes through it's start up cycle. I'll bet most people don't even know their computer has a start up cycle. I definitely do.

Delta fans are probably the most powerfull case fan on the market, but performance comes with the cost of noise. Technically, the front intake and back exhaust could be swapped with something less noisy (such as Cougar CF-v12HP) without affecting your cpu and gpu temps much.

i was wondering about the hyper x cloud headphones are they good or should i go with the razer crakens

I really like them. They are not very analytical, but instead have a lot of bass. They do require an amp, my Asus motherboard does have an amped audio port in the back. I also have the HiFiman headphones. They are awesome for listening to music and getting perfect sound. But sometimes I personally miss the bass of the Kingston HyperX ones.

I spent a lot of time looking for good headphones. I actually finally decided to buy these two headphones after listening to the reviews from Tek Syndicate. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/user/razethew0rld

Why not just get a i7? Less heat and power needed yet surpassed the 9590.

Not bad at all! But those rad fans are absolutely huge!!! Why so big?

BTW...I'd recommend a free sync monitor, G sync monitors are for nvidia only (for now at least).

I really like this build! Why didn't you put the GPU higher? Noticed the fact that the two radiators with the fans are slightly at different levels, this would annoy the heck out of me!

Awesome AMD build a beast of a card.

Mother of all things holy... I had old model of 1 of these fans from an old dell optiplex. HOW THE HECK can you stand the sound of six of them? One of them was louder then my room fans, BTW love the build! +1

Did your neighbors complain about your computer? 6 241CFM Delta fans... I wonder how loud your computer is if you run them at 100%

Thank you for using Deltas in your AMD build. I have an FX-9590 + 2 295X2s and was wondering if switching out my case fans and GPU/CPU radiator fans for Deltas was to much of a headache (the setup, NOT the noise). So...

I was wondering...

  1. What speeds do your case deltas, gpu delta, and cpu delta regularly run at? Since you said they rarely run at full blast.

  2. What is the lowest speed they run at?

  3. Are the GPU and CPU radiator deltas controlled by the Sentry as well?

Yeah if I forget to turn up the fans when working, it makes a nice heater for the winter.
