Description

This was a custom gaming build that a client wanted to last for years, and I believe we achieved that. Everything went pretty well until we put on the cooler. This case said it was compatible with 280mm Rad's, but when we installed the Rad the holes on the top of the case were MM's off. So, the only thing holding the Rad on are the four screws for one of the fans. Doesn't impact performance really so it works out alright. Overall, this PC smashes anything you throw at it. I was able to test drive this guy with some of my games that I'm not able to run on my PC at home, such as Rome 2 and Arma 3. Never dipped below 90fps on Rome and Arma 3 stayed at a constant 60fps. This build was really fun to put together and the customer was ecstatic when he came to pick it up. Hopefully we'll have another opportunity to build another one of these Titans. Any questions or comments are welcome! - Pcs-N-Parts

Disaster waiting to happen with only 4 screws to hold a aio in place.

Yeah, it is scary. It feels like its going nowhere, though. Also, the client said he was going to correct the holes by making them wider so that he can put the other 4 screws in. We didn't want to make any changes to the case without the consent of the client. We told him about the issue and he said that it's fine and he'll take care of that.

It was extremely fun! The best part was just being able to get on a high-end desktop and play games the way they were meant to be played!

I see ... you must have been "testing" his. Computer for a while :)

I ran through a couple "tests" over the weekend! lol, I was joking around with my boss and I said, "He wouldn't notice anything if I took one of these Titans, right? Not like it would decrease any performance." I even asked the client if he wanted the boxes they came in lol...he did.

Yeah man that's what I was aiming for, I didn't want to be held back by anything, what fun is that when you have to go and turn some settings down

60-90 fps on 4k for ARMA?

  • 58 months ago
  • 1 point

No, we only have 1080p monitors in our shop. With everything maxed out on ARMA @ 1080 stayed at a constant 60. Rome 2 was maxed out and never went below 90, maybe once, but come on... around 90? I'll take that any day!

How much u make him pay?

  • 58 months ago

I believe the total was around $4200. He paid for the Titans himself and shipped em to his house. We bought everything else.

Is that a 3 way SLI bridge with you skipping a PCI slot?

How do you like the Define XL series? I was planning to get an R5, but the XL R2 looks pretty sleek.

I am about to build something very similar, but I will be using several different parts. Here is a link

Very Very nice rig...I'll admit I agree with Tagiau you are definitely in the danger zone with only 4 screws holding that aio! Personally I would have just drilled some holes where you needed and screwed in all 8 screws.

Yeah, as I said to Tagiau, we mentioned to the client that the cooler had some issues. He said thats not a problem and that he would widen the holes at the top to correct it. We didn't want to make any changes to the case without consent.

ah ok makes sense.

Two titan X's in SLI seems like a huge waste for only running at 1080p, like a $1700 waste, but to each their own I suppose. Drill some holes for the other 4 screws, I would be really worried on that one. Although it looks like a marvelous build.

Check out the other comments! Thanks for the input though!

I saw he mentioned 1080p in a prior post, but a surround 4k setup is beautiful. Still the Titan x just seems overpriced to me ( law of diminishing returns).

Better be putting those titan x's to good use like 7680x1440 g sync

LOL! funny that it shows in your parts list you got a Define XL R2, when you used a Define R4.

Say he wants to add more GPUs. That's what I am doing with my friend. He wants to maybe add 2 more TITAN X cards in the future because he wants to stay relevant for the next 5-10 years. Here is a link to the build I am doing soon: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZLT3Q7

haha that is for sure! The client is getting, I believe 3 4K monitors. Well, he has one already then hes ordering two more. He wants to see how one goes first. And yes, check out the other comments about the RAD. The client is going to correct the holes at the top and widen them so he can put the other 4 screws in.

I believe he wanted 3. But I'm not too sure. We didn't talk that much about the monitors, just gawking at the machine we built!
