Description

Hi,

Here is my new custom loop build. For some reason I was not allowed to add the correct GPU's in my system since they are not SLI. I am using MSI 1080 TI FE and two Palit 980 Ti Super Jetstream.

I mainly use it for 3D work (C4D & Houdini) but also quite a bit of gaming on it (ARMA3, PUBG, BF1 etc)..

About the custom loop:

I am using two EK DDC pumps, 480mm rad on top, 360mm rad in front, 420mm rad in the bottom. Using EKWB's Threadripper block.

WoW is a great workstation, apart from being a gaming platform, power to play any modern game with a huge refresh rate. Congratulations, it is a very discreet and elegant pc with incredible power.

Thanks! .. I used a Canon 5D MKii with a Canon 16-35mm lens because of the tight space.

How do the different graphics cards SLI? Do they all work together in C4D and Houdini, or is the SLI for 3D work and the single 1080 for gaming?

Beast build, by the way.

Thanks!

SLI is only for gaming, and you need to have the same card then. I'm using the cards for GPU rendering, then you don't need to have them in SLI and you can use any Nvidia cards for that.

what is your gaming config, do you use the two 980tis in sli or the 1080ti

  • 25 months ago

The 1080ti can deal with gaming just fine. 980ti's in SLI is just annoying if I have other options.

Nope never. Don't really need it.

makes sense. a lot of people dont usually use a NAS to store everything. you probably dont need one as of right now :)

About to finish up a similar Threadripper build with a 4,000 budget and wanted to know how the 1950x is treating you so far. All the benchmarking for productivity has blown my mind, but there aren't many builds on here using that same CPU.

Congrats on the custom loop as well, looks amazing!

Thank you! Threadripper is great, but it's not amazing in Houdini and that is what I bought it for. So that has been a bit of a let down. My old 5820K was faster for those types of simulations. It does a lot better in other types of software, so better check in forums of the things you are interested in. Multi-thread support doesn't mean it will utilize the CPU fully. Gaming on it has been a surprisingly pleasant experience.

Hi there! sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if you could expand on the Threadripper's performance when running simulations in Houdini. On paper its performance should come close to that of an i9 7980xe, but I've heard people on Houdini forums saying that the Threadripper does not perform as well as expected, and I've been trying to find out why that is.

I am trying to build a computer for Houdini as well so anything would help :) Thanks in advance!

What monitor arm is that and how do you like it ?

  • 25 months ago

It's an Ergotron. Super happy with it. Really easy to move the monitor any way I want and easy to install too.

Thanks. Nah then it's too far away from me. I like being able to move it around.
