yeah, that's not much in the way of competition is the issue; particularly in the 500W+ category with SS holding 3/5.

Sorry I missed your comment, but I did not need an extender for the CPU.

Very nice build, those 6GB 780s was a good buy back then, much more future-proof than my 780Ti 3GBs.

Ok thanks, I'll still give it a shot, since I have two 780Tis collecting dust, my other option is pulling one of my 390X STRIX cards from my CF computer. Otherwise I might look at a Nano if neither fits.

Well actually the 780Ti Matrix is a hair shorter and 6mm slimmer than your Tri-X so should be G2G.

I barely ever went a hair over 750W with 290X CF and a 4770K.

Looks very nice. Planning a build with this case and a 780Ti Matrix/i5 6500 this summer for overseas travel.

So does it fit in your carry-on bag then?

I'd get cheaper DDR4 RAM; and personally I'd geo X99 with the 6 core 5820K

Fastest game to download. I should have moved it to the SSD to decrease loading times.

In practical terms performance difference between i5 and i7 is negligible; take for example the i5 4570S @2.9Ghz and 4790K @4.0Ghz, each with a GTX 770 compared across 5 games on andantech. The average FPS gain from the i7 is 2.24 FPS; something not really noticeable in-game. For games not much reason to bother.

bohemond1980's Completed Build: Travel Box

bohemond1980 submitter 14 Builds 2 points 38 months ago

Why? A desktop i5 is plenty for today's games.

Here's a slower i5 vs a 4790k, most games 1-3 fps difference one game with 7. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1260?vs=1368

Very nice; my brother has 2x Intel Xeon X5650s paired with 2xGTX 780 TwinFrozr GPUs and it games awesome; as I'm sure this one does. Only thing I would have added would be another 8GB of RAM, but this is a very nice build and a great price I might add.

They don't, I have one picture with my 780Ti MATRIX next to the 980Ti STRIX for comparison.

bohemond1980's Completed Build: ROG Swift Surround and 980Ti SLI upgrade

bohemond1980 submitter 14 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

It's pretty awesome for things like X: Rebirth (I know, I know), TW3, Rise of Legends, Attila Total War, Arma 3, etc. Even got Quake running on it. Does not like Rome 2 Total War though; units disappear on the side panels. Graviteam Tactics: Operation Star looks great on them, but man that UI no matter what setting is a PITA.

I think that's reserved for 4 way SLI, triple 4K kinda people.

Yeah, the colors could be better, but overall they are nice enough. I was worried about QC, but all 3 have been great.

Crysis 3 at 7680x1440p is a challenge. Definitely not hitting 144Hz.

bohemond1980 submitter 14 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

No, they are bot the STRIX. I would have preferred a MATRIX version, but they weren't out at the time.

Well, it's the kind of job where you are away a lot in third world countries, so catch-22.

Yup, this is even worse when on a 2G/3G network, it will spin for quite a while. Stateside not as noticeable.

You can get them used for a decent price; or just get the Maximus VII Formula; should work with a 4770K: http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-MAX7FOR&c=CJ.

bohemond1980 14 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

Not maxing games @4K, you need SLI 980Tis for a shot at that. But you can drop resolution on games that are too much via DSR I believe.

The build quality was my major dislike, very cheap quality. I love my Cosmos II case, it is a work of art compared to a Haf X and also much easier to work with/not as cramped, and easy to open, better air flow.

No, I've got a pretty solid overclock on my cpu now and I don't want to mess it up. It's annoying I wasted $530 on RAM I'm not using, but oh well, guess I've got some spare sticks now.

Smaller bus on the 980/970 really hurt them at 4K; my SLI 780TIs handily beat 980s in most benchmarks @4K. Same deal in games; over 20% faster than 980 SLI @4K; I don't think drivers will fix that big a gap. I don't think the 970/980 were designed to replace the 780/780Ti anyway.

bohemond1980's Completed Build: 5930K Build

bohemond1980 submitter 14 Builds 1 point 47 months ago

Yeah, I just gave up on that, all the sticks are good, for some reason won't work with 48 or 64 though, just 32GB.

Nice man, yeah GTX 580s were amazing cards. I feel you on the 2600K, I miss my old i7 960 4.1Ghz some days. No less impressive is your running a heavily modded skyrim with no stutters, especially on 1.5GB of VRAM.
