Description

Update 1: Managed to snatch the #16 all time high spot for 2x SLI builds on 3DMark Firestrike Ultra 4K Benchmark! Pics updated.

What: I wanted a clean, understated and professional looking build for my office and game room. I decided to use Matte black coolant tubing and polished nickel fittings and blocks in my custom loop to emulate a hot rod motor. Still a little work to do on fit and finish and polish. Waiting new, shorter cables and better combs. Also waiting a new, appropriately sized lid for the S5 case from Caselabs. Will update with fully finished pics soon! Thanks for check my build out!

The Goal: Don't break anything except records.

(#16 of Top 100 Fire Strike Ultra 2x SLI via 3DMark!)

Caselab Mercury S5: I saw this referred to as the bentley of computer cases and I have to agree. It's amazing. If you use one, just keep your cables short and under control as there aren't many options to organize.

i7-6850k: Because I couldn't justify $1,600 for a 6950k.

EVGA Micro 2: I'm not a deadly serious overclocker so I didn't need anything nicer plus, there aren't a lot of mATX X99 boards out there. This one however, is perfect for my hot rod motor inspired build being all black and gray as well as including a sharp internal I/O cover.

Corsair Vengeance LED 32GB: Really underwhelmed with these. I didn't realize there was no way to control the LEDs. They sort of lazily turn off and on and it just looks tacky. I will be switching to Dominator Platinum once my wallet recovers.

Titan X Pascal x2: Because I wanted to impress you.

Acer Predator X34: Less "HEY LOOK VIDEO GAMES" than it's ASUS counterpart.

M.2 950 PRO: Huge improvement over a standard SSD so far. I just wish it was bigger.

Titan X Pascal x2: Because I wanted to impress you.

Yeah, my FX-8320 would gum this mess right up, let alone bottleneck it. My FX-8120 would just faint.

i7-6850k: Because I couldn't justify $1,600 for a 6950k.

When you buy two Titan X Pascal cards to cower the mere mortals but back out of really pushing it over the top by not dropping the extra $1k on the most outrageous chip you can get. Sorta like building a 10-cylinder Bugatti.

Don't get me wrong, I love the aesthetic, but it really needs rigid tubing and black coolant with maybe a UV glow (like that black light saber I saw on Star Wars: Clone Wars); embrace your Dark Side, I say. :)

Amazing biuld, I am impressed with the two Titans XPs. Send more pics when the new RAM arrives.

max2082 1 point 31 months ago

Do you have any plans to expand your storage because that's really all you have left. Idk add a 6TB HDD and that would be the dream realized. Well to me any ways. I saw a WD Black for just over two hundred at new egg.

Is the Pascal the best GPU produced?

ClawZdaPro 1 point 26 months ago

not yet....

ClawZdaPro 1 point 26 months ago

hows the coolant? is it still ok?

beastmodegaming 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

personally for coolant since its a hotrod inspired build I was thinking like clear tubing and a orange yellow gas ish colored coolant.

ooftyman 1 point 20 months ago

How do you like the Corsair Void headphones?

Well 4k is a probability, but Ashes is a CPU intensive rather than GPU intensive, but good question anyway as I also want to how good a 6850k is.
