New Build of gaming rig

Recommended Posts

Then finally came the day when I got the last of my payouts of my compensation after being injured in Afghanistan in 2008. IT SHOULD BE CELEBRATED !!!
So it becomes a new gaming rig. I want to go all in witout Sli. (Dont want the trubble).
Here my thought.

 

Case-

phanteks enthoo evolv atx glass (Black).

 

Screen-acer preditor x34 IPS  ASUS rog swift pg348q

Mobo-

asus rog maximus viii IX formula

 

Cpu-

Intel i7 7700k

 

Ram-

64gb DDR4 3466mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 32gb 4000mhz 16gb 4133mhz

 

Psu-

evga supernova 850 g2l

 

HDD-

Samsung 850 EVO MZ-N5E500BW  500gb SSD M.2  Intel SSD PRO 6000P SERIES 512GB M.2

2xSamsung SSD 850 evo 250gb

 

Gfx-

GTX 1080ti 12gb (when out). GTX Titan X (P). 12gb DDR5X

 

Watercooling by Ek for cpu gpu mosfat ram 

 

Still got about 1.month before the cash hits my account so still time for change in plans. 

What doo you other gamers out there think about this rig, any changes? why? 

 

(Ps. My whife has given me the OK for this ;) ).

 

I'am going to post some pictures when i start the build.

 Looking nice. Not sure on your ram choice 

 

Ram-

64gb DDR4 3466mhz   there are quite a few breaking the 4000mhz maybe not 64gb but 32gb is still massive amount. Just a thought.

Must be a whopper budget, I'm getting close to $4,000 if I'm clicking right.  If I wasn't making money with my rig I'd probably scale back some.  Nothing wrong with 1 TB of hard drive however you do it.  I'd likely scale back by $1,000 unless you sit on your rigs or are an active reseller of your parts.  I'm sure it will kill some games and get pretty close to making you breakfast as is.

the ram is somewhat a headache 64gb 3466mhz or 32gb 4GHz, is not sure where I get the most out of them, at the speed or amount of data they can hold. And I'm not relly sure if any games can use 64gb at all, not quite decided yet.

I already have two 250gb ssd in my current machine that will go into the new build. Yes it is a bit overkill i gues :)

32GB is overkill, 16GB is ample and even then 8GB is fine..............................

 

unless you're gonna run a ramdisk or a couple of virtual machines heaps of ram is useless (and slow / hot / power wasting)

Nothing wrong with buying something you use or get a big bump learning from, and nothing to regret.

Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 32gb 3733mhz is what i think is the best choise for size and speed, I dont want to go down too 16gb thats what i got on my curent rig, but 3d rendering and movie editing gets a bit slow when there is lots of textures. and the screen for the new build has a nativ res at. 3440x1440 and games are starting to use more and more ram in future, and its an overkill all in build. Not to mention my whife takes over this rig i use now with 16gb so i'll NEED! 32gb for bragging rights at home :D

Go with G.Skill for RAM, they've been making better products for years now: F4-4000C18Q-32GTZKW (4x 8GB 4000Mhz). Too bad 144Hz 34" monitors aren't available with high resolutions.

I'll have to check them out, the fastest 32gb i found was the 3733mhz yes the x34 only goes 100hz on oc setting but with the g-sync on it relly good. And i come from 1080p 60hz 

 

(The 4ghz 32gb f4, cant get them in denmark yet, so any good ideas to where in the EU to bye them from?).

Just ordered the last stuff for the watercooling loop, thermal specs for loop 365W heat 963W cooling power :D lots of room for oc. or silence.

Its PETG hard tubing in a nickel/plexi setup (pump-gpu-cpu-ram). It's going to be one huge job with all the tubing, but in the end I thinh it will look awsome!
