Gnarlyman 6 points 45 months ago

HOLY F*CKAMOLI THIS IS A BESAST

Hazarded 4 points 45 months ago

I'm really hoping this isn't a gaming build and more of a rendering or heavy usage oriented build...

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 4 points 45 months ago

are in the right friend.

Hazarded 1 point 45 months ago

May I ask if you don't mind what its meant for?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 9 points 45 months ago

I work in development and use various engines like OGRE, Crystal Space 3D or OpenSceneGraphg.

BenderBendingRodrigues 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Why not watercool those gpus?

Dustworks 1 Build 2 points 39 months ago

Would be really good for longevity,performance boost maybe not but I wouldn't have four cards throwing off that much heat right ontop of eachother any other way,they're all gonna be under load in renderings

watchyourbackna 1 point 39 months ago

I would like to say one thing: You spent at least a grand on storage alone.......???

XLucid_DragonX 4 points 45 months ago

Everybody is freaking out about the gtx 980's, but can we not ignore the 17TB of storage in this thing?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 45 months ago

Four units 4tb creating two units, two Raid 1 mostly for redundancy and data protection, a unit is for my stuff and one for my projects.

davidarad02 4 points 44 months ago

if you have 2 raid 1 setup why not run raid 10?

DagoMC 1 point 41 months ago

its actually 18 tb

Trevor123456789 4 points 43 months ago

i just dropped my jaw on the floor +1

mariothetec 3 points 45 months ago

just by the list I can tell its not for gamimg but nice POWERFUL pc you got there

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 45 months ago

thank's friend.

M3RICA_ 3 points 45 months ago

Whoa, when are you putting this all underwater?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 38 months ago

Now yes, i need update the list.

Budheavier 1 Build 3 points 45 months ago

I like Green Team being painted red Something in me just giggles at the cards rebelling like an angsty teenager

Rashiq 2 points 45 months ago

Hey man did you stumble upon a lottery/gold pit/oil pit or something??? You got no idea how many hypothetical builds I made at pc partpicker with 4 way sli 980s.+1

No hate but maybe you could spend some money on some photography class and give the photos your computer deserves.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 0 points 45 months ago

Just got the photos for publication, with the camera cell phone, the weekend and it took better photos with a professional camera.

Meithen 2 Builds 2 points 45 months ago

Nice build man, so clean. Looks great, I can't wait to see the 4th 980 in there.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

the pictures is update.

Dustworks 1 Build 2 points 45 months ago

for $6685 you didn't do a custom loop....I have this case and that is the #1 thing I can't wait to do with it

mariothetec 2 points 45 months ago

why does it say gtx 980 classfied gpus if only you show reference gtx980s

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

hi guy, you read the description.

mariothetec 1 point 45 months ago

facepalm Wow and its the first I see when I open the build page

Zapface 2 points 43 months ago

Impressive build but I'm worried about the negative air flow. Do you dust off your system often? If so there really isn't a problem and you have a magnificent machine on your hands. Good luck in your work.

APEBuilt 3 Builds 2 points 42 months ago

Get rid of some desktop icons and I will upvote. It is atrocious. j/k but seriously

Very tasty build

ArkansFPS 2 points 42 months ago

do u get 10-30 fps on gta 5?

[comment deleted]
Ryanccm916 2 points 38 months ago

This would be a great machine for SETI@HOME, which has all the power it needs.

APEBuilt 3 Builds 2 points 37 months ago

I would highly recommend using monitors with 60Hz or high refresh rate. Especially if you are dropping 10 grand on a build. Seriously though 30Hz sounds super painful.

Otherwise this build is AMAZING.

captainwaffles 1 point 45 months ago

dude im currently making the same build as you and i encountered a problem. The phantom 820 has 3 USB 2.0 front panel connectors but the motherboard only has one header. What did you do?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 45 months ago

simple, with this nzxt usb expansion iu01

Sn0w-Q 2 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

HEYYYYYYYYY MY NAME XD. Nice build bro and i hope u keep getting the best at the future :D

pepoxx 1 point 45 months ago

3200 mhz for the ******* win!

JustAnotherGamer 1 point 45 months ago

It's so preeeeettyyyyyy...

zmac0135 1 point 45 months ago

Absolutely gorgeous build my friend. Hope it treats you well.

Vacationer 1 point 45 months ago

very very good looking machine why you didn't go for Raid 0?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

yes i have two ssd 850 of 500gb in raid 0.

MRE_Teck 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

Who knew there were still good builds here and also how did you change the color of the led thing on the gpus

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

with sandpaper, one very fine, the cooler is disarmed and removed the "geforce gtx" then it's time to sand carefully.

MRE_Teck 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

also why did you put down the classified insted of a refrence and also what do you do that would require to have three UHD moniters pecause you should not be gaming on those for 2 reasons: #1 they are 30hz, in other word you won't beable to se past 30 fps and that is not good for gaming| #2 you have no where enough vram to drive those in surrond if you were planning on that!

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

The PC no it's for gaming is a big workstation. I work in development and use various engines like OGRE, Crystal Space 3D or OpenSceneGraphg.

MRE_Teck 1 Build 2 points 44 months ago

Regardless those are some really bad moniters even if they are uhd

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 44 months ago

I know it is not good to play, maybe later the change by Asus PB287Q

[comment deleted]
whitelight6 1 point 44 months ago

Yes, but can it run minesweeper?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

no :(... LOL

PCgamingparts 1 point 44 months ago

Where did u find the h110i GT?

Dustworks 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

with an $8000 budget you didn't do a custom water cooling loop...............but damn is that thing awesome looking,do you do heavy 3d rendering? I'm upgrading to X99 soon for it :D

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Yes i work in development and use various engines like OGRE, Crystal Space 3D or OpenSceneGraphg, now i waiting the titan x this week.

murrayphoto 1 point 43 months ago

Didn't see it in any other comments, just wondering. Are the SSDs in Raid 0 or 1 or not at all??

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

Now is 4 ssd's in raid 0, and the other disk is in raid 1 for data and works.

RealMax 1 point 43 months ago

How many gtx 980s do i need just for gaming?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

normally one, this build not is only for gaming dude.

A_shady_person 1 point 43 months ago

Oh my goodness... This is probably the most gorgeous build I've ever seen. I'm thinking about making another account just to give it another +1. Someday I hope I can build something like this. Now I just need a million more dollars.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 43 months ago

Thanks.

TerminatorOps75 1 point 43 months ago

You totally need Radeon 295X2 in a four way crossfire. duh. thats like 8 gpus

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 3 points 43 months ago

I have other build with two 295x2.

sponix 6 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

Love the Build !!

Glamour Shots are Excellent. And you don't see that Custom Paint every day !!

Shame the DDR4 pricing left the build a seeming a bit unbalanced. Memory consumption is truly depending on your workload though, so my Memory Abusive habits and overwhelming feeling for the need to Max out Memory to whatever the Board can Handle isn't exactly ideal for everyone Grin..

Let me know what you think of my parts list if you have a moment. The more I keep reading and getting recommendations just keeps reminding me of how much more I have to learn !!

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/sponix/saved/BZW7YJ

Thanks for taking the time to put this on display !!

I didn't put my mouse on the +1 button in case I said noice. oops, +1 anyway. sick custom paint job too! <insert joke about assassin's creed terrible optimization here>

Revosok 1 point 41 months ago

What did you use to get the green paint off of the gpus?

Nimblej4ck 1 point 37 months ago

Used a fine sandpaper, I read it in a reply to someone else's question.

RubyJunk 1 point 40 months ago

Your peripherals cost more than my computer. Two of my computers.

villageidiot182 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

Zomg Snowme, you're just above me on Firestrike of people owning a 5930k and 4x980's lol! I'm coming for you!

HDBigH 1 point 40 months ago

Wooooow this baby is a beaast i cant sleep and i have a final exam in Internal Medicine 2moro nice build bro

jjjhfam 1 point 39 months ago

How hot does it run?

Luigiox 3 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

Holy Glob! +1 Cause is all I can give. :(

SpikzeMC 1 point 38 months ago

Can you please provide more pics with the components inside the case with the window on? Your build is the nearest thing to what I am planning (but with only one GPU). :)

PatrickG 1 point 38 months ago

very nice!!!!!

awsmnss1dr 1 point 38 months ago

have you run any benchmarks on this build?

Alilliender 1 point 37 months ago

What do you need 34 TB for!!! Just Why!!!

TheHiddenCreeper 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

one issue WHERE'S THE CUSTOM LOOP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elias7235 1 point 36 months ago

Man i wish i could have this build so i can play club penguin in 4k at 60 fps with my oculus rift.

Overdrivemusic 1 point 35 months ago

How's the temps on the cpu? I'm planning to buy the same processor and cooler

handr0 1 point 35 months ago

How did you do the side panel? I have that case and it's got a teeny window.

pixlminus 1 point 35 months ago

DARTHVADER69 1 Build 1 point 24 months ago

Yo! Are you running all 32 GB G.Skill Memory at 3200?

Jayjakejim5718 1 point 24 months ago

Only 16GB of ram? Why not 64GB?

Mrphillip33 1 point 24 months ago

greetings. thinking of buying this case. what you think of it ?

anonymous2335 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

Why 30 hertz monitors tho

BoHofmans 1 point 21 months ago

But... the real question still remains... Can it run Crysis????

Dehriz 1 point 21 months ago

30hz monitors, I'm a lil, lil dissapointed

none-of-the-less

Adolf_Hitler 1 point 21 months ago

okay so when i first looked at this build i was thinking to my self if this kid is thinking about gaming with this this he must be mistaken but the i put two and two together and realized your probably using this for some production thing bc no one on this earth would want to game on three 30hz monitors its just not plausible especially for the fact that you spent like 1000 on 18tb alone good build if your doing something like editing or production but other wise that's it

King_Fitz 1 point 15 months ago

This is like TechSource's Big Red and an older, cooler brother who knew his ****.

Nater650 1 point 12 months ago

I assum the SSDs and HDDs are in RAID

iMoonTiger 1 point 10 months ago

Modesty at its finest

Brandino312 2 Builds 0 points 45 months ago

Why?

bobbae 0 points 45 months ago

Why would u buy those monitors....

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 4 points 45 months ago

recalls friend who is not for gaming, and are the most economical in 4k, I clear the problem of 30 hertz in 4K.

imsok00l 0 points 44 months ago

You don't have the EVGA Classifieds... Please fix your part list.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

You read the description why put the evga?

H3lp 0 points 44 months ago

I know you have said you didn't build this to run games, but can it run minesweeper?

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 44 months ago

LOL

pritham2000 0 points 44 months ago

Tetris maxed out, 30 fps.... now possible.

JamesHutch01 0 points 43 months ago

IDK why but I feel like this person is female and goes on Tumblr... I know those are pretty common but I get a strong sense of it for whatever reason... lol

petero13 1 Build 0 points 42 months ago

I bet the lack of powerful GPU's bottlenecks the build 3/10 only because you don't have enough power from your gpu's

Monsterxx101 0 points 37 months ago

Does it run minesweeper with 100 fps?

codypcbuilds 0 points 30 months ago

How many FPS on Arcade Astroids?

Variable.variables -1 points 41 months ago

Seems a bit overkill...

jjjhfam 1 point 39 months ago

So what if they have the money? :D

It says in the decription that those are reference cards, but he didn't find the reference ones.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

thank's for read friend.

KrunoslavH 2 points 45 months ago

No problem. With those nice parts you need to read the description.

Arkwoman1990 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

Did you read the description.....

Eximo 4 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

There is a removable part on the reference GTX980 on the backplate. It creates a little more air gap between the cards. You should probably do that.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 3 points 45 months ago

Thanks, Eximo, for the moment -10 degrees (y)

NardMaster 27 points 45 months ago

*Minimum (Recommended requires 3x980ti)

unskilled 5 points 45 months ago

Maybe at 720p, to play in glorious 900p at the cinematic 30 fps you need 4 gtx 1000tis in sli and your 5960x needs to be atleast 5 ghz

JustAnotherGamer 14 points 45 months ago

Nah, man. Gotta get that quad-SLI Titan Zs and dual 5960Xs on a server board clocked at 666GHz each with 512GB RAM.

OhHeyImKyle 2 points 41 months ago

Yeah that MIGHT be able to run it in windowed mode, but as soon as you get one of those scenes with the large crowds of people you're gonna lose your frame rate faster than I lost my lunch money in elementary school. And I mean that's fast, I was a pretty unpopular fellow.

DavisTheWalrus 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

dual 5960xs*

SwiggityDerpy 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

no chance m8 u have 2 w8 4 the new r9 395x3, then u might be able 2 get 15fps on lowest settings

or get a gtx 1080 ti if u dont care about a single digit fps

/s

jjjhfam -1 points 39 months ago

Um..huh?

SwiggityDerpy 4 Builds 2 points 39 months ago

Here, I'll say it in normal grammar version:

No chance mate you have to wait for the new R9 395X2, then you might be able to get 15FPS on lowest settings.

Or get a GTX 1080Ti if you don't care about a single digit FPS

Notice the little /s at the end. That means satire or sarcasm.

I'm currently watching these options for custom loop, we agree with the warming of the video card.

bobtherock 3 Builds 1 point 45 months ago

Astek are doing an option for AIO cooling and Corsair have or are about to release a 980 conversion kit (HG10). You simply attach any Hydro series AIO for the processor and use the stock fan for VRMs and stuff. This is an option instead of going full custom.

sn0wme submitter 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

If you've been reading about this kit, the problem is where you installed 3 or 4 AIO shortly into the case, a total of 5 counting the CPU?

Maybe this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-fc980-gtx-waterblock-for-nvidia-980-gtx-nickel-acetal.html with this block: http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-fc-terminal-quad-semi-parallel-acetal.html Better soluttion with big rad 360.
