Description

There is a problem Im having with this machine When I boot it up the screens don't turn on or only sometimes and when I try to use the inputs to connect to my computer it says no signal so the only way I can get the displays to display anything is to mash F1 when it is booting because for some odd reason when I do that it boots. Does anyone know how to fix this?

This is what I have so far with my build Id like to keep you guys updated as I get new parts to keep it more exciting.

I listened to your comments and I removed the mix-match RAM.

I don't have proper justification for the Titan Z's so Hate all you want.

And Im getting an SLI Bridge my old one looks like poop

Titan Z had a 50% price slash so he probably only spent around $3000.

You could probably get those cables a little nicer. It's the least you can do if you're going to make you $4400 quad-SLI config look good.

I have a feeling that this is one of those "because i have money so lets slap all the expensive shat onto there" builds. $6000 worth of equipment but non-K CPU. $6000 worth of equipment but ugly stock cooler. k den. Nice build anyways, could use a little cable management...

Why isn't there a SLI bridge on the GPU's?

If I am correct (which I'm probably not) you should need the SLI bridge to get the SLI functionality from the GPU's. I mean they have the connector for a reason. +1 build for the dual GTX TITAN Z's

  • 63 months ago

Well, you invited us to hate on your build...but I'm not going to judge because I've caught the build bug more than once before ahahah. Lots of power, who's complaining? I would probably have wanted to give my SLI Titan Z build a bit more wattage headroom than a mere 44W though. TDP is 956W.

I just wanted to say that any plain brown SLI bridge still looks better and less of a poop than the stock cooler on the 4770. Just saying.

EDIT: wait a second. You just posted this build on Jan 5th. You could've just updated your original build with pictures. Switching out the RAM doesn't really warrant a whole new build page.

You do realize that the Titan Z doesn't ever hit that 375 tdp right? Lol this isn't a 295x2 it actually uses less power then advertised. Also pcp is weird with their power consumption tool. They add 5 watts for every hard drive and fan which is wrong wince neither of those ever use 5 watts unless its like a 15000 rpm hdd (this is understandable as specifics for how much power a hdd uses are never available so using a more then realistic number is safe and encompassing). So he probably has closer to 100 watts of headroom once you factor in the hhd and fan wattage and the Titan's not using 375 watts each.

  • 63 months ago
  • -1 points

I'm not sure about that claim. There's only one review of the Titan Z and Guru3D has it pegged just a few dozen watts lower than the 295X2 http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/nvidia_geforce_gtx_titan_z_review,7.html.

Mind you, that's PEAK. The 295X2 hits more than 600W maximum. I wouldn't necessarily turn to Guru3D for first-rate, Anandtech-quality reviews, but I wouldn't discount their results either. When factoring in the fact that they're traditionally conservative with their power consumption numbers, the numbers for all the other cards seem more or less correct, so I don't see why their result for the Titan Z wouldn't be. Sure, the Titan Z sits at ~100MHz lower than the GTX 780, but we have a chart to ponder here.

EDIT: I found another. PCPer seems to find that the Titan Z is 146W more efficient than the 295X2, but that still adds up to around 330-350W. Anyways, the HX1000i isn't going to have any problems dealing with that anyways.

Did you change anything in the bios that might affect the boot drive? Maybe hitting F1 is the hotkey to go to the next boot option for the bios???

Run your video cards in PCIE 2.0 mode. Probably will solve boot issue. Don't listen to some of these guys, the PCI bandwidth is not as big an issue as they say.

The reason they feel it is money wasted is that noisey *** stock cooler. $35 air coolder would make a world of difference.

I would guess your power supply can't power the titans. Try only one of them. Also, try one stick of RAM that you know works.

  • 63 months ago
  • 1 point

Right now I'm running both of them in an alienware with an 850 watt power supply instead of that 1000 watt because it didn't work when I put it in there its got more than enough for the GPUs actually I'm trying to get a power supply that will work any suggestions on how to get the HX 1000i to work in the alienware for now (its an area 51)

  • 63 months ago
  • 1 point

Did you just replace the GPU(s) in the alienware area 51 with the titans? you could unplug all the power cables in the alienware and test the HX 1000i with it (the HX 1000i being outside the case and not remove the alienware's PSU). If that works then you could just re-build the alienware in the Enthoo Pro case.

  • 63 months ago

I tried that and it worked once then it didn't work again oddly

  • 63 months ago
  • 1 point

Everything else still works thought right? If so, your PSU probably couldn't handle the power consumption and shorted out.

try re building it basic components only: Just an Opinion - Re seat the CPU - Ram dual channel band(1-2 Primary Channel's Only) - Single GPU on test Boot - Single monitor Only try each config on those parts swapping them afterwards to see if it boots properly on either each of the parts if not still blank on boot up most likely its the MoBo, if it did boot up with ''Single GPU'' then and only dual channel RAM then its most likely the PSU not giving enough power to the 2 titans but i really doubt it since its a 1k platinum. any hoot good luck.

This is 1 build that doesnt make much sense.

  1. 4770K, 4790K or LGA 2011 are much better options especially for the price
  2. Why 2 different RAM kits? It will make the PC look off
  3. Why 2 Titan Z's and 1000W wont power these 2 cards
  4. The storage solution to me makes no sense. Could have gone with 4 240GB SSD's in RAID 10 and 2TB HDD.

There is so much wrong with this build.

  • 62 months ago

I will soon have a really nice gaming PC for less than 1 of those TITAN Z....Memory is a mess and CPU cooler...well...

2 GTX 980 in SLI would have maxed out everything with your triple 1080p setup for 1/3 of the price. Or at least if you wanted a ******** of VRAM, 2 R9 290X 8 Gb in CrossFire would have done it nicely.

I know you're getting a new Mobo/CPU combo but man...I would never post those pictures. Kinda of shamy to brag about this build.

What is your strategy with your storage solution? Seems kinda odd to mix large SSDs with a 1 Tb HDD....?

Good choice of case though, I bought the same but window-less (Here in Canada, the price went from 99$ to 139$ suddenly so I stuck with the 89$ window-less solution). Great case with good cable management options, dust filters and PWM hub.

I hope you'll post pictures of your final build with the X99/k cpu in there!

I can fix your problem why it doesn't boot up - you don't have enough power. Get an AX1200i or AX1500i.

SOME RECCOMENDATIONS:

*Get an actual CPU cooler

*Your RAM speed is half of what it should be

*Storage is just wack

*Your current cable management style is like an 80's women's hairstyle

*Your CPU should actually be able to overclock - if your spending this much money on a computer, actually go for overclocking - it's really worth it

*Titan Z's are 2x as much as Titan X's and perform 2/3 of the way

*You don't need 3 webcams - one will suit you fine

*Your gold motherboard clashes horribly with everything else in your build - paint it or something

  • 60 months ago

I don't have 3 webcams what are you talking about? I bought this before Titan X I have an actual CPU cooler now along with a different CPU i-7 5820K with an AIO watercooler cable managment was improved when I got the X99 parts so yeah this was temporary cable management. Regarding the Ram I know have 4x4GB DDR4 2133MHZ RAM and I fixed the boot problem already

1000W for Titan Z Quad SLI? :eek:

That's a bit worrisome IMO. When I was running 4x Titan SC and then 4x Titan Black SC, I was using a dual PSU setup (2100W).

Any issues so far w/ the 1kW PSU and Titan Z Quad SLI?

Love the GPUs & 2 (wow), very expensive but you don't get much better than that, but... Why the 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory? You just down-graded your 16GB of DDR3-1600 memory to 1333. Also I would never buy an SSD over 750Gb, they have speed issues nearing 750Gb. Why did you go with a stock Intel CPU cooler, all that graphics power & you don't wont to overclock your CPU?

  • 53 months ago
  • 1 point

The 4770 comes with a build in fan so everyone lay of the guy. Also the reason your computer is doing this, would be because of your memory. On one hand you have2x8Gb DDR3 1600 and 2x 2Gb DDR3 1333. THAT WAS STUPID IT REALLY WAS. The 1600 is being downclocked to 1333. I would suggest selling one of your Titan Z's and buying some relatively good memory, because yours is utter garbage. But Props to u for getting the money for this build.
