Description

Ok, so this is my newest personal build, i had an X99 micro build that i posted about a month or two ago and it was just getting too hot for how i was using it. So i decided to upgrade to an ATX build using an X99 deluxe, i really love this motherboard not only for the aesthetics but it really has everything i need. It all wasn't roses and rainbows though, my first X99 Deluxe was one i bought used about 6 months ago, and i sold to a guy, it ended up having bent pins on it so i refunded him, then got refunded by the guy i bought it from, and he let me keep it. The board worked and everything but it would only read half the amount of ram and the first 4 sata ports were dead. So i decided to pay to get it fixed by Asus since i got the board for free basically i would only be paying the amount to fix it. So i paid 130$ to get it fixed.... long story shorter they sent it back with the same socket and this time it wouldn't post so they basically robbed me, so i bought one brand new. I also bought the new Intel 750 series NvMe PCI-e drive and that also crapped on me the first day so i returned to and got the Samsung SM951. which is actually faster than ther intel drive. i posted the crystal disk mark benchmark in the pictures.

I use this build for video and photo editing of a skate team in Jacksonville,FL i also use it for normal use like watching videos, web browsing etc. and of course when i have the time i play my slue of games. Im loving this computer so far, it is working just how i hoped after all the BS i had to deal with. I just got some custom sleeved extensions for my 980ti's and mother board, i think they turned out pretty nice, i actually got them on recommendation of one of our local PCPPer's. So thanks to him.

Other than a couple things going sour i think it turned out pretty nice. my next thing im going to do is watercool the whole system, hardline and all, but that will set me back about 8-900$ so im just waiting for the right time, If there are any benchmarks or general questions you want to ask feel free, i am on this site at least once or twice a day so i should respond quickly. Thanks for checking it out guys have a good one@!#@!

Great build looks really clean, just posted mine with the same Asus x99 Deluxe.

Someone had asked me about the Samsung SM951, have you had any "thermal throttling" issues? Also what's your boot time for Windows 10 Pro. I'm getting about a minute with the Intel 750 (I was expecting better).

Oh hell yeah man, i just checked your out, looking nice, i really did want to keep the 750 but the sm951 was a little cheaper, had more capacity and it was just as fast as the 1.2 TB one, and it took up way less room, and seeing i have SLI i didn't want it to sit in the middle of two hot cards, but no ive heard that this little guy gets really hot also but i have two 140mm fans blowing cool air on it so as long as im not running SSD benchmarks for an hour it will be fine. For the load times i would say its about 15- 20 seconds. if not less. i hit the power button and the motherboard info comes up then instantly loads into windows.

great build! I have the same mobo and processor and love it! I went with SLI TitanX instead of the 980TI. Great cable management too!

How is your temperatures while gaming? And does it get loud while gaming?

Very Nice looking build! Congrats!

Hi, awesome build, I am looking to pick up a reference 980 ti like yours but am worried about temps and noise does it run as hot and as loud as people say because I think it looks amazing.

Hello,

I am building a new pc and I have decided that I am going to get a 980 ti but can’t decide between the reference cooler or an aftermarket cooler. I am stuck because I really like the look of the reference cooler but have read online they are noisy and run really hot. In you experience is this true about the reference design because if so could go with an aftermarket one.

Many thanks,

Thanks man , it really is a simple build with just high end hardware, it doesnt blast out at you but it is pretty eye catching in my opinion. Yeah man im loving the extensions. i seriously didnt even have to try to put them in that position, which was where i wanted them, im very satisfied with them man. i might post a couple pics of the cable managment, its not lookin too hot but should be pretty easy to tidy up.
