Description

(Note) Left to do: Waiting on new EVGA shrouds to update the look of the cards.

I swapped my 2 G1 Gaming 980 Ti for EVGA Hybrid to deal with temperatures.

This an hybrid water cooled system using AIO coolers only for CPU and GPU's in SLI, easy maintenance and assembly with great temperatures.

It doesn't look as a good as a fully customized loop, a little ghetto with all the tubes and rads in the case, but I like this build a lot. It's reasonably quiet, and temps are great.

How storage is managed:

  • Boot/OS/Main Programs: Samsung 950 Pro M.2 NVMe 512GB
  • Storage: 3x Samsung 850 EVO 1TB in Raid-0
  • Backups: WD Passport Ultra 3TB and Cloud Storage

GPU:

  • 2 x EVGA Hybrid in SLI

CPU and overclock:

  • Skylake i7 6700k @ 4.4 (Can overclock to 4.93 without playing with voltage, but sweet temps are between 4.4 and 4.6)

Any questions or feedback, feel free to comment.

When both GPUs cost twice as much as your own build.... :|

Nice build though! +1

Your storage selection is magnificent, you've achieved the dream of eliminating platter based HDD's but maintained reasonable space, never skimp on storage :)

Did you have any problems using the hybrids in SLI or installation? Looking at them myself so curious if you ran into any problems.

  • 48 months ago

No problems with the cards, the challenge is having a case to fit them properly. That was the only problem.

  • 48 months ago

Cool, using your case as a reference. I think I will have the space.

my new 2016 build and yours are almost the exact same. The only differences are that i don't use that many ssd's, my gpu's aren't hybrids, and my fan LED's are red, and my motherboard is an msi. I swear I've never seen your build until this moment.

Very nice! I don't think it looks 'ghetto' at all. You've done a brilliant job with keeping it clean and tidy.

You'll be fine with only one, I'm playing Fallout 4 at the moment with SLI turned off on a 3440x1440 display. I just did it because I wanted an over the top build. Good luck with your build :)

Did installing windows onto the 950 easy? Like do you install windows on it just like any other ssd?

Awsome build! You must feel very proud of it!! Would you mind answering a question? The GPU's radiator fans aren't connected to the GPU, are they? Are they connected to the motherboard, so you can control when turn them on/off and speed based in GPU's temeperature, no?

  • 47 months ago

Hi, thanks! Yes they are connected to the cooler, and the speed of the stock PWN fans included with the unit controlled via corsair link. You can connect them to a fan controller or motherboard headers directly if you prefer that. I replaced the stock with quiet led fans that are only 3 pins, so they are at a constant speed for now, but being quiet model fans, they are not noisy. The stock fans are perfectly fine, I just did it for aesthetics.

Ah, ok! So, all the fans but the Corsair cooler ones go to the motherboard (included the EVGA graphics card radiator ones !). Thanks for your quick answer! Enjoy your amazing rig!

the EVGA Hybrid also comes with its own power for the fans, but I connected them to the mobo instead to control speed.

Dude, what an awesome build! Also thanks a lot for posting the CrystalMark benchmarks. It's really interesting to see how the two different SSD's perform.

Sweet build +1. How is the fan controller in the motherboard and should i go with manual? I'm looking into the same motherboard and am also planning on having lots of fan. One more question. Did you use Y cables to connect all the fans or a fan hub?

Thanks :D

  • 48 months ago

Thanks! I'm using the motherboard for all the fans minus the h110i cooler fans which are wired directly to the cooler unit. Since all the fans are "quiet" versions, not performance edition, I run them pretty much at 100%. I had to use one Y Splitter (Sleeved, from Silverstone) to power up bottom intake fans. Also not listed, I purchased 2 x 120mm silverstone filters for the bottom rad intake.

Honestly, if you don't want leds, the PWM fans included with the h110i unit are better since you can control them via corsairlink, and you can put a more aggressive profile, and the default case fans do the job just fine. I just did it for aesthetics, now considering a led bar.

Personally I would recommend having one ~500GB SSD and having one 1/2TB HDD, but everything else about this build is perfect (even peripherals). Your cable management game is strong, and you obviously know what to do with the more than roomy 750D.

This thing is a total beast, dude. How well do you game on this, and whats the average FPS?

I would also suggest an ASUS ROG Swift monitor.

  • 47 months ago

Hi! Thanks. FPS is depends on games. I've 3440x1440 resolution to push, most games I can max out all settings.

Regarding the monitor, I'm still waiting for a decent 34" Curved Monitor with GSYNC. The only one available at the moment is the Acer Predator and I'm not interested. I might get an Asus PG348Q when they release it if it receives good reviews.

1st: Why an 980ti Hybrid and not an G1?

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

Temps. I live in a Tropical Climate, 1 G1 was fine but both in SLI the system was running hot with the open air design in that case. I just built a Mini-ITX with one of my G1 left and it's doing fine.

I'm looking at the Airflow edition of your same case; I'm curious what your Intake / Exhaust breakdown is?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

Definitely get the Airflow edition, I found myself removing the front panel too often. I've ordered the airflow conversion kit from Corsair. As for how I configured the airflow, it's in the pictures with arrows, the pic just before the benchmark pics.

Love this build! I'm looking at building something the same.I'm a little new to this so please forgive me for the dumb question. The graphic cards have 2 fans, 1 on the radiator (that can be replaced by a quieter fan)and a small one on the card. Are both of those connected and controlled by the motherboard using software?

  • 46 months ago

Hi, there's no need to plug anything to the board if you don't want to. The rad fans can be powered by the unit. There's a small power cable that follows the water tubing that you connect the fan to. But you can connect it to a fan header or controller if you prefer to. The fan on the card is the same as a reference air cooled card but has that extra part with the tubing, rad and fan. It's an all in one solution. Plug and play. Just make sure you have space in the case and you're good to go! (A place to mount the 120MM Rad and fan, ideally, exhausting, so in the back or top of the case).

Hey there , I am curious to know. What is your boot time using the m.2 storage as you are currently using?

Btw, awesome build! +1

what size SLI Bridge did you use? My build uses same MOBO... wondering if I need EVGA Long (60mm) or the EVGA Short (40mm) SLI Bridge? Was assuming I would need the long 60mm just based on layout of MOBO alone, but not sure... Great Build btw!

Hey I haven't been on PCPartpicker for a while, sorry for late reply. I guess you got it figured out. I'm using the 60MM.

great build! i've got the same mobo and am looking to get an nvme 512gb. was it difficult to install? because i've read that to get the 4x read/write speeds i need to get an adaptor? i don't run SLI nor intend to run it

Nice build! May I ask you something... have you tried to exhaust both of the GPUs on the top of the case, and also, set up the H100i on the front as intake? If yes why it didn't work? Thanks in advance!
