Ultimate Part List Challenge (The ultimate build)

  • 52 months ago

The Challenge

Hello everyone, I have a challenge to propose. It's just for fun and to see what people can come up with so don't feel obligated to participate. Imagine you had a lot of money and didn't care about the budget. The objective is to top pretty much every single benchmark possible (Gaming, rendering etc.) The ultimate PC that can do everything faster than any other computer. The build must be doable in real life though.

Requirements

Operating system : Must be included (you can pick any)

Peripherals : Screen, keyboard, mouse, headphone, etc. (Custom parts are allowed)

Budget : No limit

Location : Any

How to participate

Post in the comments below your build and explain how it's doable in real life and why it is the ultimate computer. People can then upvote their favorite build (I'll personally upvote any build I find interesting). I'll also post my build below.

This is just a friendly competition. If someone post something stupid that isn't feasible (for example a radiator too big that doesn't fit in the case etc.) please comment on it so people can actually learn things!!! All I ask is to stay friendly and polite. HAVE FUN!!!

This build is 100% water cooled with a custom loop. I have water blocks for both CPU, RAM and all 3 GPU. The theme of this build is black. Every single parts I've chosen is black. I also have a reservoir, a pump and 2 radiators (as well as tubing and fittings).

The board features 7 PCIe slots and can support up to 80 PCIe lane with the 2 processors I've picked. I know that titans are dual slots card and it normally would'nt all fit on the board but, LTT has demonstrated in a video that it is possible to convert a titan x into a single slot card using some modding and a water block. I'll link the video if requested.

So while it'll take some modding and adjustment, all 3 Titan x will fit in 3 way SLI as well as the 3 PCIe SSD and the 10Gbps ethernet network adapter. The 3 SSD's are gonna be set in RAID 0 for insane performance and the 6TB enterprise drive are gonna be set in RAID 5 for storing data.

I picked 3 144Hz Gsync monitor @ 1440p resolution. You also have one of the best headphone ever created and a great microphone + pop filter for professional voice recording. Finaly since it's also a gaming build, I added a 1080p webcam for streaming and video recording.

System spec

Processor : 32 Threads @ 3.2Ghz (Turbo up to 3.6Ghz)
RAM : 256GB of ECC DDR4 Memory
Storage : 2.4TB as main drive (SSD) 24TB (Raid 5)
GPU : 3 WAY SLI Titan X total of 12GB of VRAM

Made some changes to your part list. I went 4-way SLI with a caselabs case with 2 PSU mounts. You use 2 AX1200is, one for just the GPUs, and another for the other stuff.

Interesting choices. I still prefer the Xeon E-5 2667 though because of its higher clock speed. It would perform better in a game (but not as well in heavy multitasking). SLI doesn't scale very well once you go higher than 3 way. I though about going 4 way at first but then changed my mind.

Very nice case (I looked it up). I think it looks way better than the cooler master Cosmos II (I'm giving you a +1 on that one!)

4 titans wont fit since the case on them makes them take up 2 spaces

No. Not for anything useful, at least. They're already building a pointless tower by throwing every possible requirement into the mix.

Their money would be immeasurably better spent by building a bevvy of separate computers. If you look at mine those all come out to about the same as what theirs comes out to while being able to outperform theirs in every possible scenario. The only things it could possibly win are synthetic gaming benches(though strictly because of the presence of the Titans).

I agree it's really useless. Anything more than 2 way SLI isn't really worth it. 3 way still scale a little, 4 way is just completely overpriced and useless. But this challenge was just for fun so... w/e haha

3 Titans wont fit, the case on it is too big and takes up 2 spots

As I explained it is possible to mod them and make them take 1 slot instead of 2. I can link the video of someone doing it. not recommended but it totally works.

I don't think that in an competition that they'd let you modify parts as that would be cheating since some people don't have access to grind wheels or hack saws. Sorry bud, but until they invent an ATXL or something, 2 ti's only for now :P

If I'm not mistaken, the Cooler Master Cosmos II has one 240mm and one 360mm radiator mounting point. Which means only one of these radiator will fit in. Nonetheless, a very interesting build.

PCPartPicker 'identify' said that they should both fit, so I just went by that...

Hope that this helps!

Found what I was looking for : http://www.pcgameware.co.uk/reviews/cases/cooler-master-cosmos-ii-case-review/

The review says it supports one 240 and one 360. That's why I went with those size in my build. Hope this helps :P

haha that's a funny build. Though you don't have any GPU and xeon processor don't usually have integrated graphics. It could work as a storage server accessed from other computer though... Are you sure it's possible to get a decent Raid card for 14.99$ o.O where did you get that price? I'm curious ;)

I was fooling around and skateboarding or something while doing this build on my phone. The raid card I chose could probably burn my SSDs for all I know.

It could work as a storage server accessed from other computer though...

I dunno man....

I would never have dual CPUs in a gaming machine. That is why I included the 5960X version.

The problem with the last build (i7-5960x) is that it only supports 40 PCIe lane. So with the PCIe SSD, some of your GPU are gonna be running at 4x speed (which isn't very optimal). Dual CPU for gaming is OK as long as the clock speed is high enough, it'll get the job done :P

My computer focuses mainly on gaming performance. My main use for this would be to play Need for Speed on 3 25" widescreen monitors with a racing wheel, and full surround sound.
