If I did it again, I would start with a larger case just to work easier in. It was tough to get everything arranged in there, but it's working great. Those hybrid cards never get over 50 degrees. It's never overheated, and I'm using all three rendering an Octane project right now!
Sure, here is a test I did in Octane. It does motion blur, depth of field, SSS, and displacement with hardly any extra render time.
I agree, that case is awesome
Haha! I hear ya. I can't right now, I'm in the middle of a project, but it's something I will look at. My cards are still going to be close together because of the MB layout, but more airflow would help.
Thanks, I wasn't sure it was going to work. I can't believe how much tech has advanced since my last PC.
Yeah, I know. Originally I was thinking I was going to be happy with two cards, but I wanted Octane to be even faster! It would have been nice to have the extra case space to work in that's for sure. It's surprisingly quiet and the fans never really run into overdrive. The card temps never go over 40 degrees.
I originally had that hooked up for the two cards before I added the third. I guess I need a bridge that connects all 3. Octane Render doesn't use SLI mode, so it wasn't a big priority for me, but thanks for reminding me to hook them all together..
Coming from an imac. I want to use the Octane renderer, so I need CUDA cores. This is my first build, so I just need to know if everything will work together and if the cooling/power combos are good. Also, I'm not using it for gaming...so is anything overkill?
Man, you're right...then why would the octane benchmark be more for the dual 980 tis?
Thanks for the reply, I'm going by this link for the Octane benchmarking.
This is why I want the dual 980 Ti. Dual Titans would be out of my budget, but the dual 980 ti offer better performance than a single Titan Z (at least from this benchmark). I like this setup though.
Thanks, I forgot about that, I should have titled it dual 980 Ti
