That's the benefit of two 980 ti's. He is probably future proofing or will be getting 4k monitors soon. No I don't but they're everywhere now.

970 is more then enough for 1080p. The two 980Ti's is what you need for 4k gaming on ultra.

This is so sexy. Without a doubt. I think this type of simplicity is far superior to a complicated build. This is amazing. Well done!

One in a while we, the people here at pcpartpicker, get to indulge in builds that are amazing beyond words. They simply do not even need a word to describe them. They're like no other, a very unique and charismatic system. You, my friend, Mr ravenWolf have really accomplished the "once in a while build"..Heck this is once in a life time. I think you did very, very, very 10 years later verrrryyy GOOD!

You know, it's almost funny to me since i always tell my self, theres never a perfect build, but if theres something to at lease become close to that, it's your build! Ive built, seen and criticised many water cooled builds, and let me say that you're up there. Theres really nothing else to say, i mean it's near perfection. It looks beautiful, it stands up, i mean even your parts are of best quality. You nailed it. If anything, you don't need a congratulations, you need praise!

Well done, man!

Definitely the pursuit of epicness right here. I love there mini ITX builds. They always stand out to me. Instead of making the build look really crammed, you made it look half empty! I think you did very well here mate, i wouldn't fault anything really. Even the parts are of great quality. Excellent work and maybe one day it can become the pursuit of perfection ;)

The build stands out and i can appreciate you even sleeve your own cables!

Excellent having a lot of photos (but you're Japanese so I'm not surprised) haha i went to Japan back in 2011 and people are taking photos everywhere!

Anyways beautiful build. Great job !

Absolutely beautiful. Couldn't get my eyes off some of the pictures mate! What makes it even more amazing is how you selected the parts. I think the addition of the red cables, red ring around the AIO and even going all out and getting the classified units. Superb choice right there.

I have to disagree on the creativity guy. What's not creative about this build? Red outline on the pro bridge, giving the build a more personal look rather then chucking in parts. It looks great to me and anyone going more overboard then they should with a build is creativity. It looks different to most builds. Maybe the red and black theme is becoming old now but it still looks great! Ignore the hate, it looks great mate!

Great build mate! Excellent parts selection!

Looks beautiful. Love the theme you got going on and excellent parts selection to back up!

Just make sure you end up moving that RAM. It should in the 2nd and 4th slot (from the left) so it can run in dual channel. It will work the way you got it, it just won't be optimal until its in dual channel. Consult your manual if you need assistance. Otherwise great build bro!

Wishing you every bit of happiness with it.

Killer parts selection mate! Definitely an excellent array of parts. Wouldn't have it any other way!

You know, i love the build in general. Especially the sleeved cables! Definitely gives the build a unique vibe! I honestly love it. Well done bro!

Really nothing to fault at all. I appreciate even going to lengths such as buying a EVGA pro bridge, gives the build a more prestigious look! Im happy for you man!

On a side note, how are those speakers?

Peace!

There's a way of criticising people's builds without being a total ****. You were lucky that your build is decent. He made a few errors and could of improved, whats the big deal? All his parts are more than fine except for the power supply in this case. He can easily replace it without having people like you being so f'n rude. Seriously, how would you feel if your build got raped? grow up.

It's a budget line PC and does a fine job at a standard gaming system. Not a top of the line or SLI config system though. It's meant for budget PC's/light-mod gaming

CONCLUSION ....I'm happy with the outcome. It worked at booting time and I was expecting to not even turn on. My kid loved it and I'm happy I built it with my own hands.

You should happy with the outcome. This is not a PC build, this build is a piece of art work. Usually first builds are rushed and people are just eager to set up the PC. I can see here you really put some heart into this build. Giving your tower some charisma and identity. I think it looks spot on, bro. It really does. ESPECIALLY for a first build.

Even the parts selection was aced. I mean, you honestly killed it here mate. A PC doesn't need $10,000 worth of parts to look nice. You made it look sexy with a fraction of that. Well done bud! Hope it all remains smooth from today on :)

Merry christmas and happy holidays to you!

By the way, i apologise as i forgot to mention. The actual chipset for the z97 board actually has 4 pci-e lanes. So if you do SLI you will have x8 and x8 and the x4 for the m.2 drive if you so decide to buy it! Basically what I'm saying is you have 20 to play with :)

Good day to you and good luck!

Comment reply on JQuon's Completed Build: The Black Widow

  • 47 months ago

No worries.

Dont worry, the 980 is sufficient. Even the 980Ti is a monster for a predator. SLI has its advantages but you need to remember, the 4790k unfortunately has 16 PCI lanes as i mentioned early. Running SLI could constrain your graphics performance. This is if you decide to buy the 950 pro SSD. Essentially it will be:

2 x 980s running in x4 and x8 1 x 950 pro running at x4 (m.2 uses 4 lanes)

The way higher end boards get away with this is by having a dedicated PLX chip. I know the gigabyte z170x g1 can run quad SLI so 4 graphics card, 2 x4 slots and 2 x m.2 without any issues. Even 4 graphics in 16 x for each. So yeah.

You will most likely not feel it in a real life use but apparently when pushed and mainly at 4k it begins to show. Personally, a single set up is enough. Seriously people who SLI often don't even need it. It's useful for certain users but if you play games moderately and don't care about maxing out AAA games on 4k, you're fine man. Dont worry.

Comment reply on JQuon's Completed Build: The Black Widow

  • 47 months ago

What you need to understand is, theres two types of M.2. Theres the pci-e version and the SATA version. If you use the SATA version, it will use up bandwidth from the SATA interface. In your case, the 950 SSD uses the pci-e interface so it will use bandwidth from the pci-e. Your SATA connectors will not be affected.

As for SLI, honestly, it depends what your plans are. Single cards are more than efficient. For example, the 970 is excellent at maxing games out on 1080p. Where as the 980ti is excellent at 4k. SLI is beneficial if you want to 4k/max out games on multiple monitors with all the bells and whistles. If you're just a gamer with like 1 or 2 screens and don't care for 4k that much. The 980 you chose is more than enough. SLI isn't really worth it unless you absolutely need it and your power hungry.

Comment reply on JQuon's Completed Build: The Black Widow

  • 47 months ago

No worries :)

So my motherboard comes with one x16, x8, and x4. If I choose to SLI, it would only leave me with the X4. would the PCI-E function properly on that slot?

Essentially, all of those pci-e slots (except for the smaller one) are 16x. Since this motherboard isn't high end, when you run SLI it will cut it in half so x8 x8. One GPU will have x16. If you run SLI, and the 750 SSD via the remaining pci-e slot you will fine. It will fit in either but its suited for the smaller pci-e slot. The m.2 slot will work the same way since m.2 just borrows bandwidth from the pci-e connector. I think that pci-e connector (smaller one) will be off if you occupy the m.2 slot. I know higher end boards have PLX chips so you can it all at once. Essentially the intel chipset comes with like 16 pi-e lanes anyway so you should be fine.

Great build mate! Excellent choice on parts. Great execution!

Get the 950pro M.2 drive after I learn more about it.

Hmm. It's a good drive. Excellent actually. You need to remember it throttles like crazy. When it gets really hot, it will slow down to save its self. I personally would go with the pci-e intel 750 sad since it had shielding and can dissipate the heat better. The 950 though is better for smaller files so it's really up to you!

Well done here man. Hopefully it all works out :)

Hmm. How about we call this "Shadow rising". You said it's a base build, right? Well until you create this into a monster, it's a shadow. It will then rise :P (I'm actually good at this stuff but I'm half asleep :P)

Great budget build mate! Yes that drive is snappy but believe me, when you get an SSD, that WD black drive will become a toyota prius! (just saying)

Overall, room for improvement but you did very well! Hopefully she grows and prospers into something greater :D

Oh wow. You're like a grandpa to the PC building community! (lol) I'm so sorry but i had to make that joke! You did well...dont worry!

Let's get started here, i think you did EXCEPTIONALLY well here claps for someone who hasn't built in a while, you definitely have the knowledge on great parts. I wouldn't change much there mate. Excellent job all around. I also really respect that you took the time to write us an amazing description. People take note, even having a 'whats next' part to finish it off! thats what a description should look like!

Funnily, enough, i haven't seen a reservoir being placed on the left in a while now. Must be an old school thing (i joke) but seriously, great work. That case is stunning btw. Happy holidays !

Yep. I think i found the most consistent build of the month! (maybe even year?) honestly you did an amazing job going with the parts you chose. I can't fault anything! (except you didn't buy me anything! How rude!) haha jokes aside, you killed it! I even love the extra details like getting the EVGA pro bridge! I cringe when i see people use the orangey ribbons included in motherboards (yes, I'm talking to you ASUS) hopefully soon they'll add these bridges to boards. Build also looks great mate. One little nitpick i want to state, and i wish i don't have to nitpick because so far you've aced it. Is perhaps changing those cables to sexier sleeved cables :P it honestly would give your PC a theme and make it stand out. But hey its all good. Well done man and happy holidays! (definitely happy with that thing!)

You're only 15? Man thats awesome! Well done for building a PC! Well it is your first build and common mistakes first builders make is often cheap out on important components or don't have consistency with anything. Honestly you did a stellar job on your first build. It's a great job indeed. (i hope this makes you happy :P) some amazing parts happening! Although the power supply isn't a great unit, it's not bad either. It's actually decent so i wouldn't worry there for now. Congratulations !

The good old red and black theme! Today everyone, Edgar aka 'Tech source' (check out his channel by the way guys, excellent content) is back again with another sexy build. I honestly love your proficiency with these builds. Looks exactly like you put the extra mile to make it stand out. I can give you a 200 dollar budget (maybe not possible? hehe) and you can still make that PC look sexy!

Moving on, i kind of wish you added a red sleeved cable for the GPU power. Would of gave it that extra kick of red which would of made this almost immaculate to look at! But hey, it's something you can aways add without worrys. It looks sexy anyways. Great job mate! Cant wait to see more PC **** from you!

Happy holidays!
