Description

Building gaming PCs is a fun hobby. Not everyday do you get to build the really high-end machines though. But when the opportunity presents itself, it just makes the whole process even more enjoyable.

This particular system has been specced specifically towards providing the best gaming experience possible at 4K resolution. Nevertheless, efforts have also been made to ensure that it's a powerful all-around system even for professional work like 3D modeling, video or photo editing. As with all projects, the budget is a limiting factor so only products from the consumer market were chosen for the build.

A good chunk of this build is honestly terrible for gaming.

The i7-6950X is great if you're doing video editing, sure. But games don't tend to use more than 2-4 cores very well at all, so having 10 is a waste. Especially since that CPU is at 3 GHz, when you can get the far cheaper i7-6700K at 4 GHz. It'll significantly out-perform the 6950X in gaming applications.

That motherboard is also completely insane. 550$ is ridiculous for a motherboard and I honestly doubt it provides and reasonable benefit over a ~150$ one.

Finally, 16 GB of RAM is about as much as any game is going to use. If you really want to make sure, go ahead and toss 32 GB in. But you're honestly never going to go above 16 GB. 128 GB is just a waste, and it's slower than other ram you could get. 16 GB of 3200MHz ram would do better.

So this really isn't an ultimate "gaming PC". It's an ultimate 3D video rendering PC. Does great at that. Kind of poorly at gaming. (At least compared to what's possible)

  • 34 months ago
  • 2 points

I do agree that the i7 6700k has beter bang for the buck for gaming but where in the world did you get this statement?

It'll significantly out-perform the 6950X in gaming applications.

Give me a reasonable source. This source I found shows the 6950x is a fair bit better than the i7 6700k in gaming: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-6950X-vs-Intel-Core-i7-6700K/3604vs3502

  • 27 months ago
  • 2 points

Just to clarify, OP is correct, as the i7 6700k does outperform the i7 6950X at both stock frequencies and also stable overclocks, in almost every game. If you're talking about overclocking, with a good liquid coolant you can get the 6700k to 5.0ghz and the 6950x to 4.0 ghz so...

itsFeral, I'm pretty sure there are benchmarks showing the 6700k outperforming the 6950X, and if not then it's quite close from what I remember.

Ah.. you don't sound impressed. Good, there should always be one...

  • 34 months ago
  • 2 points

It's not that I'm not impressed. As I've said, it's fantastic for stuff like video editing or rendering. But for gaming (Which is how it's talked up and titled) it actually performs worse than much cheaper equipment.

That's all I'm saying.

  • 34 months ago

I think you need to see this then. In all honesty, I think that once you get to this level of budget, it isn't about being the most efficient, capable machine one can build anymore.

  • 25 months ago
  • 1 point

There is a difference between impressive and ostentatious. The builder does state in the description that steps have been made to ensure that the build is beefed up for 3D modeling and i assume video editing purposes. Were this intended just for gaming purposes then yes we would be looking at seemingly meaningless spending, however it appears that the machine is meant to be capable of more than just gaming.

Any handmade case is expensive especially these for the fact that the welding is a one time try just about. And this case the 2.0 has features like radiator mounts and updated junk. So yes they are expensive and there is some justice to it.

They have a lot of stuff they do with them yo make them better than a normal case, and while they are not wprth how much they cost, they are worth more than the average case, and they migt each be "handcrafted" not sure, but that is something companies always use to bump the price of a product up.

The i7-6950X has ten cores while the i7-6700K only has four cores making the i7-6950X better for multi threaded tasks. Keep in mind that you can overclock an i7-6950X too.

Absolutely 100% build. The cable management is so good I've been left wondering whether you removed all the cables to take your photos. The last build I reviewed has similar specs, but the cable management was awful and the 6950X was too overkill.

Nope, that was like the first thing I noticed when I saw he was using a dual-GPU setup. I did have two Gigabyte GTX 1080's, one Waterforce, the other, air, and I made sure to use an HB bridge; makes no sense not to, since the 1080's, with the GDDR5X memory, use a higher bandwidth than the previous generation Maxwell artitecture, and the old SLI bridges were not made for that.

That SLI bridge is not an HB bridge, right? Wouldn't you benefit with using one, so it would utilize the higher bandwidth provided by the GDDR5X memory? Very nice build, but I HATE you, you have the 6950X processor, a VERY expensive piece of hardware! :) I am curious, tho: is it worth all that expense? For instance, would I benefit from upgrading to that, from a 6850k?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes, you're correct. At the time of the build, those HB bridges were pretty rare. I had a hard time finding one so I just used the old SLI bridge for the meantime. I'll probably change it when ASUS releases their new HB bridge. hehe

Regarding the i7-6950X, I guess it all depends on what you do with your PC. From a gaming perspective, you won't gain much. But if you're like me and you do a lot of work on your PC, the extra cores can come in handy.

Whew, where in the heck did you find that case?? I have never seen one like that before. Very unique to me, and I would love to try a build using that. Right now, I am using the Corsair Graphite Series 760T Full Tower, and that to me is a nice, nice case, but THIS one is just SICK! :)

I fell in love with the first D-Frame but unfortunately In-Win only made a handful of them. So when they annouced that they were making a second version of it, I just had to buy one. If you want one, you should go get it quick. I think they only made like 500 of them. There are more colors to choose from too!

Do you know what the V ed 10 can do that the IX Formula cannot do? I'm new to building rigs. I've looked at both and can't tell the real differences... THANKS

The biggest difference is in the chipset. The Maximus IX Formula uses the Z270 chipset while the Rampage V Edition 10 uses the X99 chipset. Althought they share some features, each chipset is aimed at a different crowd. So what you need to do is write down the list of things that you will be doing on your computer and then decide which chipset meets your needs and budget.

thanks. In December, I had the 6700k and Hero Alpha mobo. I quickly discovered that I could not run both the Intel 750 (NVMe in PCIe platform) and the 960 Evo (NVMe in M.2 form) at the same time. Asus help desk said it's "supposed to work" but not enough people have called in to them for this type of support. So, I returned them and in January I upgraded to the 7700k and and IX Formula. They indeed allow me to use both my Intel 750 and 960 Evo at the same time. I'm going to install a 3rd NVMe drive next month in M.2 form and hope it'll also support it. For now, the IX Formula meets my needs. If it doesn't support the 960 Pro I'll be adding in February, I might neet to upgrade to an X99 board. THANKS for the feedback.

Assuming you're running a single graphics card, I think you will be fine.

I'm running two GTX 1070's... we'll see. It's not a deal breaker but it would be nice to have all three drives. I need the 3rd drive to be a clone of my Intel 750, which has the OS. This way, if windows crashes, I have the 3rd drive ready to boot. I tried the Samsung T3 external drive but it was way to slow. I thought about a 3.1 external drive but they're just as much as the 960 Pro. Since I know the 960 Pro is fast, I decided to not bother with any more external drives. Do you have an external drive that reads/writes at least 2000mb/s?

If you add up both SSDs, you get around 960GB of storage space in total. It's sufficient for me considering I don't store anything other than work stuff and games.

With regard to those who feel less than move by "overpriced" builds, I believe the problem is thus. To often we see a builder choose parts simply by assuming higher price/better part, to that end one only creates an ostentatious display. A braggadocious way to say your mortal attempt at creating a 'best performance attainable at this price range' means nothing to us Immortal wealthys for we can with little or no effort simply buy the most expensive parts available and throw them together. Without knowing a great deal on the matter, or spending countless hours researching and reviewing, the end result will still be the same. Our simply more costly build will shadow any attempt you mere mortals make at accruing praise or validation for your hard works and researches spent to ever push the balance of price/performance to a more favorable tilt. At least that seems to be a persisting belief of many whom are angry at the fact that they are restrained by a more 'limiting' budget. Some feel the deep venomous bite of jealousy or think that were they to be gifted a mighty budget of 6 grand they could have done so much more. Indeed they would have created there masterpiece and chosen this rather than that or invested here rather then there. Its unavoidable that it makes people salty, after all we are all just humans.
