Description

In April of 2018 I decided to build a top of the line Gaming PC to go along with my new home theater. To that end I ordered the motherboard, CPU, Cooler, RAM, Case, Power Supply, 3x NVME SSD, SLI Bridge, PSU Cable Set, PowerLinks, and Windows 10 Pro.

The rest of the parts including the 2 video cards were taken from my existing system.

Simultaneous to this I purchased my home theater components which consisted of a LG 77" 4K OLED (since upgraded), Denon X8500 AVR, and a 7.1.4 Speaker System.

The home theater also includes: PlayStation 4 Pro with PS VR, Oppo UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player, Nvidia SHIELD (2017), Apple TV 4K, Sony FMP-X10 4K Media Player, PlayStation (original) (these are not on the parts list)

The first major upgrade was in October 2019 when I became the first in the USA to take delivery of the LG 88" 8K OLED. It is G-Sync compatible and has HDMI 2.1 input capable of 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz.

The Valve Index was purchased in November 2019.

I am planning to upgrade the video cards in 2020. I do not foresee the need to upgrade any other parts for many years.

All games are running at 4K 60Hz with maximum settings. Hopefully the next generation video cards will have HDMI 2.1 allowing for 4K 120Hz output.

Dislike. Ever since I built this computer i can no longer poop. My butt is ripped open. Delete this post and save everyone from this terrible fate. I can no longer see my family. I can not hold in my poop. The smell. Oh the smell. Buying diapers from the local K-Mart is embarrassing. 2/10.

Nice build +1 I would of gone with a diffrent case for cable maniging like the NZXT H500i. Plus it would be cool with more RGBs

  • 13 months ago

Thanks. I've always loved comically large cases ever since I built my first system in a Supermicro SC760A. That plus USB-C is why I got the View 91 even though I am never going to make use of its space. I actually removed the drive cages and I'm not water cooling either.

Between the Mobo, RAM, GPUs, and case fans I thought I had enough RGB. :)

This hurt my family. The ripage is too strong. Out butts weren't just ripped, but shredded as well. Do not build until you have told your family you love them.

Incredible. You went all out there. Nice system bro. The one constructive critique I would make, is that such a nice set-up deserves better cable management. Everything else is great.

  • 4 months ago

Thanks. I did my best to route all the cables to the back. I even bought the EVGA Powerlinks. Unfortunately the case didn't come with a power supply shroud to hide the mass of cables at the bottom. I suppose I could add a custom cover.

You need to go full Jayz 2 cents! Water cool it on 2 gold plated custom loops. 4 water cooled Titan RTX's. All storage on SSD's All placed in a solid gold refrigerator box!

The storage is already all SSD. I am waiting for HDMI 2.1 for my next video card upgrade. If SLI is still a thing I will probably get 2. Not interested in water cooling though.

Not trying to hate here but past gen threadrippers aren't good for gaming making this not even close to a no compromise build. Also 8k/4k aren't optimal for gaming and even then a 144hz 4k monitor would be a better choice. Not to mention ray tracing won't be great on this. Oh also parts don't seem to be priced right even for at the time. Also why did you buy a threadripper and only have 32gb of ram? This build is nonsensical.

Tldr; I don't know why people are upvoting this it's a generally badly put together build that just buys expensive parts.

  • 1 month ago

You are correct Threadripper may not technically be the best CPU for gaming but at this level the CPU is not making any difference in gaming performance. You seriously expect me to put a puny computer monitor in my home theater? Sorry but that is just ridiculous. This is an 88" screen and is probably the best TV available for purchase today. Beyond 120Hz the refresh rate wars have just gotten silly. I am not an E-sports gamer. The difference between 1440p and 4K is night and day and anyone saying otherwise is kidding themselves. The difference between 60hz and 120hz is something I usually have to see side-by-side to distinguish. The part prices all reflect time of purchase. The main parts were purchased in 2018 except the video cards which are older. And some of the accessories are recycled from older systems. I don't know why I would need more than 32GB of RAM. Thank you for your comments though.

actually above 1080p it definitely makes a difference.

You have that backwards. The higher the resolution the less important the CPU becomes.

There was a drive cage there I took out and I guess that's where water cooling equipment would go too.

Plenty of room for future storage expansion.

  • 2 months ago

don't want to seem like a hater but there is such an extreme amount of unnecessary parts here not to mention most of the hardware is rendered useless since the tv being used has a refresh rate cap of 60hz so id say the "no compromise" aspect is silly comment since you are comprising basically all the performance in all the parts used to get a better picture on this flex-machine setup.

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

What parts are unnecessary? The TV is not capped at 60Hz. It is a 120Hz panel and it is capable of 4K@120Hz input. Current video cards are limited to either 1440p@120 or 4K@60. I choose the latter.

You would have to buy two Titan RTX's to run 8k 60fps with any reliability in AAA titles. 1 Titan RTX performs similarly, if not worse than two 1080 ti SLi. Seeing as how OP probably purchased the GTX's in 2017, it probably wasn't worth building a time machine to go to the future so he could spend 3.5 times what he did.
