I use multiple depending on the application. I use a lot of plan reading/estimation software such as Bluebeam and Vu360 for commercial plans. I also use Pro Landscape and Dynascape for my own designing which are High-end CAD based software made specifically for landscape architecture. This machine runs like a beast through plans that my old machine would bog down on.
Nice build. I did a 7820X X299 build in the Corsair 780T just recently and EXTREMELY happy with the case. Good choice!
I just built with a 7820x and very similar build to yours. I'm extremely happy with my choice and I did it over Coffee Lake. When it comes to professional use x299 is better in my opinion. Great build.
Case wise I went with corsair 780t. It's huge but once again extremely happy with it for many reasons. Just in case you decide to change cases you should look at it.
Not a follower but seen you around and have a photographic memory. I been known to be little bit of a jerk myself so no problem. Just don't want to see people run off by stuff like that.
Wow beautiful. I just built my new machine with a 7820X and I think it is amazing. This just blows my build out of the water.
Agree... Seen posts from BrimstoneBell multiple times like this. Not really needed. There are ways to pass on knowledge without coming off as a jerk.
I would suggest going to 16GB on the ram but other than that a nice build!
You are correct. I'm not a big gamer. I am currently a general manager of a commercial construction company and have 3 kids so not much time. So I just a lot of heavily taxing CAD software on plan sets that's are 200-500 pages. I am getting into computer science and this is the path I chose. Plus with the big leap in GPU tech next year I figured this card would do for now plus I got it for 220 new.
I'll explain and if you research you will see you have them opposite.... similar question back at you, why would you blow hot air on every part of your system including the CPU the cooler is trying to cool instead of exhausting that hot air out? Also your idea about the temperature of the GPU inside the box causing air to be hot? I'll tell you modern system replace the air in the box so quickly that air inside the box is similar in temperature to the outside air... so in conclusion, having those fan intaking is blowing hot air on every part of ur system heating up your system and lowering the efficiency of all the cooling components in your system and increasing overall temperature by a good amount. Your idea that air from inside the box will lower the efficiency of your rad while is VERY VERY SLIGHTLY right but you won't be able to measure the difference is how small a difference it is. I'm not trying to rag on you or your build but point out an pretty big issue. Don't take my word, research it and you will see I am correct exhausting the fan is better. Also there is some air flow reasons and other smaller issues but I'm not writing a novel explaining every little thing wrong with your method just the big things. Good luck!
I am using the H115i in my new build (Going to post when I get some pictures done.) Anyways I question why you put your fan on intake for the rad? Its way better to have them blowing out the top over the Rad so you arn't blowing hot air into your box. (I am talking about blowing direction not placement of the fans.) You will get better temps on your tests then.
No part is necessary... But the Samsung 960 is the best boot drive and reasonably priced. So why would you say such a thing?
Grammar police I see. Wouldn't it be smart to write properly yourself before insulting someone else?
I know its crazy to many of you... But some of us like and think the x299 platform is better... The 8th generation consumer chips were a rush job. Also remember the x299 wasn't a rush job, is a professional series, and etc. Plus he could upgrade to a i9 in the future. What are you going to do with 8700k platform upgrade wise? O yea, you are going to have to replace the MOBO. I personally think the 7800x is a good chip but I think spending little more on the 7820x is a better decision UNLESS you are going to upgrade to a 7900x later then I would save the money and go with 7800x. I am currently working on a build for my new workstation with the 7820x.
I'm putting together a new build for my work station with a 7820x.... my question is based on your memory choice. That ram is listed as a duel channel even though it comes in a pack of 4. Does that matter? Can it run fine in quad channel?
Where did you get your memory for such a good price?
I am looking to do a similar build... What made you go for the Strix compared to the Prime-A which are very similar?
