Description

Spent a little more than I initially planned, but really wanted something that could handle 4k. This was the 4th gaming rig I've built for myself in the past 10+ years, so this time I finally decided to just go all out. Some things, like the PSU, are overkill, but overall I'm very happy with the results. The 2 SSDs are in RAID 0. Will overclock the processor soon.

Awesome build! I stand by that power supply, it never hurts to go all out on the power supply. Also what did you use as your keyboard?

IMO Power Supply is the most important component of the build; it is the last part (that I know of) that anyone wants to **** up on them because it could ruin the entire system, plus he has upgradability.

Thanks! Currently its a $10 microsoft one lol. I want to replace it with a Logitech G710 though to match the mouse.

*Are. No, there aren't ips g-sync monitors, but there should be

Acer heard our cries and made an IPS G-sync 144hz 1440p monitor if you haven't heard

Yes, I most certainly have. Sorry I worded it very wrong, I meant that there aren't 4k ips g-sync monitors

Amazing build there!

Loving the 980's, but i hope you can get some cable mods cos those cables...... yeh not up to the Seasonic platinum quality i feel!

Amazing build and with those GPUs and that monitor (4k Gsync DROOL) you should have a very good 4k experience. I also have a 4k monitor (acer b286hk Black Friday Sale) my biggest issue is there is next to no content available for it. Don't get me wrong GAMING is GORGEOUS @4k if you have the graphical nut to power it i just wish there was more than House of Cards Season 2 and Breaking Bad in 4k ( which you can only watch on specific hardware)

Honestly here is a critique that I do not like about the build. Turn your H100i radiator the other way. The tubing obscures the view of the mother board and covers the LED on the cooling unit.

nice build! my only critiques would be that you don't really need a 1000w PSU, 750w would have been plenty.

With a full tower and 1000w, I would have gone with: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100360sr to save $400. With 2 x 980, I think most people will agree that the: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss760xp2 is more than enough. I am obsessed with the 760w Platinum, I have it in 3 of my builds, complete silence! On the other hand, you have enough power and space for a custom water loop.

I have the same 760w in 2 builds I try to pick it up whenever it drops to $120 or below. The 860 is also a very nice psu and is need for Xfire r9 290/290x. Hands down best psu's I have used ever and the zero fan hybrid mode is freaking beautiful .

What games you playing? And what FPS are you getting?

Not feeling that psu whatsoever 300w more than needed and fugly as hell, it's a seasonic though so its performance should be unmatched along with the rest of your build no matter. Do enjoy it!

Are you sayinng it is 300w more than needed based on the minimum or recommended PSU wattage? He has two 980s running in SLI.

He could get away with 700-750w with ease. They're power savings are touted all of the time and it's still underrated. You can see from my build logs I own one 980 and x2 780ti's. I also have a killawatt p3 I measure my builds power with so I've got a good handle on what he can expect.

MOST PSUs reach peak efficiency between 40%-70% load so even though is a bit more than needed definitely not wasted as for that particular PSU he will be sitting at mostly peak efficiency during load.

An interesting take and your are right he doesn't want to be scrapping at 100% and getting the fan going. Pcpartpicker estimates a max load at 530w for this build which jive with what I expected, chuck in 100 watts for oc and I'd revise my 700-750 to 750-800w.

I thought that pcpp only estimated the minimum power draw.

530w is absolutely nuts for idle power draw. My 980 build does 60w just sitting on the desktop for example.
