Description

I have been doing a lot more 4K video editing and wanted to get back into PC gaming. So I decided to build my first ever PC. I have helped many friends throughout the days building their custom PCs so I decided to take a crack at my own.

First off, yes. I know the system is overkill. However I like to future proof myself and figured if I am going to build it, I will build it right and maximize the system. I figure with this setup I can edit whatever videos I want and game what ever I want without many limitations.

I will be posting a video up on YouTube with my setup soon and will link it here. I also plan to order custom sleeved white cables for my GPU power and possibly some of the others. I tried to keep the build much like my car, matte black and pearl white.

I did choose a ridiculous screen. I went with the 65" Samsung 4K SUHD curved TV (UN65KS8500F). Rather than multiple little screens, I chose 1 large screen. Mainly so I can have the enter screen running my 1080's in SLI and I could always double it as another TV if I ever wanted to.

Anyway, if you see something you like/dislike or any possible improvements please let me know. I am open to suggestions.

Thanks Erik

It's not the cost of the build, but it's how you use it. ;)

Amazing, i would consider a different screen as youll really feel the downsides of a TV with a pc like this

That TV isn't all that bad as a monitor actually. Check out this in-depth review: http://uk.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/ks8500

For a 4K TV it's not a bad monitor. By monitor standards it's not too great. 20ms input lag is a little high, and 16ms response time will leave a lot of ghosting

I did a lot of research, and without paying 5k for OLED, this was the next best thing. I have 4k @ 60Hz @ 4x4x4 chroma. So while using it for editing video/computer everything is crystal clear.

I used this a lot to help pick out the screen: http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by-usage/pc-monitor/best

Oh I have no doubt it would be awesome for editing! The input lag and response time are low enough that they won't make a difference for most applications. Really, they would only be noticeable during gaming. And even then, they would only be noticeable to someone who's used to extremely low input lag and response times.

Glad it's serving you well!

Question:

Are your GPU's installed in the 1 and 3 slots of your board?

I want to get a second xtreme 1080 and use the HB bridge that is provided, but to me it doesnt look like it would fit in my build.

But yours looks like it fits great.

  • 41 months ago

another question:

Are you having scaling issues with the gigabyte gaming software for the LED on the GPU in 4k?

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes, I am using slots #1 & #3. I will attach a copy of the manual that suggests slot #1 & #3 for the 40 lane CPU. Having the 2 cards blocks all the other slots on the motherboard.

What motherboard do you have?

Thanks Erik

  • 41 months ago
  • 2 points

I have the Gigabyte x99 SLI motherboard.

My 1 and 3 slots are x16 and 2 and 4 are x8,

It just looks like the bridge would be too small to fit if i put mine in the one and three slot. I have my build posted on my profile, under completed builds. Thank you for taking a look and answering my questions!

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

From the looks of it, you will need a different SLI bridge as the Xtreme Gaming one would be to short. I have heard people having good success with the NIVIDA (http://www.geforce.com/hardware/10series/geforce-gtx-1080) They have 2, 3, & 4 slots available. Looks like you would need the 4 slot. So it would cost $40 extra, but still doable!

  • 41 months ago

Thank you for the fast reply! ill look into those. How much would you sell the gigabyte bridge for if you were to sell it?

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

I think I will hold onto them both for now so if I end up buying new GPU I can resell the entire set. Sorry about that. Based on your build you would need the 4 slot direct from GeForce and I don't have any of those.

Nice build my only question is-- do you have a Tesla? Which one?

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

I do. I have one of the new refreshed Model S 90D. Picked it up in June. I will add a picture so you can see. It is pearl white with all the chrome being painted/wrapped matte black. I also have a Model 3 on order.

I am actually the owner of www.TeslaInventory.com. A buddy and I started it when we were both looking for a CPO (certified pre-owned) or inventory car, I went ahead and just bought a new one though. We built it because the Tesla website only allows you to search by location, Model, Price, Drive Train, Range, and Exterior color. Our search engine utilizes their file and we deciphered every option code they offer and allow users to search by any option they wish. We also track price changes, allow saved searches, and email alerts. It was more of a fun side project for us that we decided to keep live for users to find their own Tesla. Some content is for users only, however we are 100% free and utilize an SSL for all information.

PS: Here is a link to my YouTube page. You can see car videos there and I will also be uploading my PC tour there. http://www.youtube.com/c/TeslaInventory

How are your GPUs holding up running the Samsung SUHD? I was thinking about doing the same, but with two 48" SUHDs. Super awesome setup and congrats on your first build.

Nice build...but $8500 and two pictures....Windows Home?? I like it but would have gone with an 950 Pro M.2 instead of the two 850 Pro SSDs. Just my opinion, enjoy your system it's pretty incredible.

I would highly recommend ditching the TV and opting for a dual curved monitor setup. Or a triple 16:9 setup. Anything but that giant TV with input lag.

The difference you will see between the two will be very apparent.

  • 42 months ago

Despite that TV being rather good; I would do the same.

For that money you could get two Predator X34s or PG348Qs, which would look absolutely spectacular!

Well now that you mention it... However I originally bought the other SSD to throw into a buddies machine to find out he doesn't need it anymore. So figured I would just put it in this one for now.

I choked when I read "double it as another TV if I ever wanted to"

While I now realize that you meant you could also used it as a TV, I first interpretted it as you buying a second TV to have 2x 65" 4K TV's haha. And I got a visual image of that.

Great Build +1

Thanks! It's funny as my main TV and bedroom TV are also 65" and now look so tiny. So the main TV is getting an upgrade to a 75".

Although I like your dual 65" curved idea! Don't know where I would fit that though..

Thanks everyone. I need to chew through my last video (~80 hours worth of video) and then will get the video edited for this build. It should go a lot faster!

To think that before this I was using a Surface Pro 3 (i7 w/ 512gb) attached to a 32" 1080 monitor. Not sure I ever want to do that again.

  • 41 months ago

How do you feel about editing on a large single monitor instead of dual screens? Have you spent a lot of time with dual screens? Personally, I find the duals mandatory for video editing since it's very easy to put different content on different screens. I can also play a video game like Hearthstone or watch a movie on one monitor, and do mindless edit work on the other at the same time. I guess you can do all of this with one large screen, especially if you ran everything in windowed mode. Thoughts?

  • 41 months ago
  • 2 points

I have had dual screens before. Meh. I guess it isn't a big deal since I can just shrink window sizes if needed. The real desire for the large screen came from gaming. I have been editing like crazy the past few days and its been great at full screen.

  • 41 months ago

Ok, added a few new photos. Still need to edit the video... I am looking at drilling into the desk to route my keyboard cable. I hate looking at it. Otherwise the system has been performing beautifully and keeping up with anything I throw at it!

Based on your experience with the aircooled xtremes would you suggest those over getting a water cooled xtreme?

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

I was actually looking for the water cooled Gigabyte extreme 1080.. However I was able to get two of these faster. However now looking back, I am glad I didn't get the water cooled. Mainly due to not having enough room in my case or becoming very packed.

Great build! I do suggest picking up some yellow tint glasses if you plan to spend a lot of time in front of this monster though. They will protect you from all the UV light that is emitting off that TV and you'll thank yourself in the future when you can still see color or see at all. :) +1

How's the Motherboard holding up?

I was set on buying it until I read the reviews on it. I really wanted it so bad ,but now I'm at a standstill with my build.

People saying it just stopped working.

Is it still running OK ?

  • 36 months ago

I have had zero issues with mine... Maybe I got lucky, or my days are numbered (hopefully not). I use the system very heavily with video editing and gaming.

It looks like Asus has reached out to some of those with issues and is trying to support them. They do have a 3 year warranty.

I want to buy it ,but still hesitant .

Glad to hear yours is still going strong .

My reason for worrying is... I day trade stocks all day, so it will be under heavy use with tons of live data all day ,can't have a PC crash on me when I have money on the line.

Asus came out with new MB's recently ,think I'll contact them ,and see if any are comparable to the Deluxe 2.

I sit about 5-6 feet away... I adjust the chair to be able to lean back, so it's not quite as bad as it sounds.. There is light coming in during the day and at night I can dim the screen a bit, but no issues so far. Gaming has been awesome, but No Mans Sky is released on the 12th and that should be good.

As far as video editing, I have been going through a bunch of 4k video and it is working without any hiccups!

  • 41 months ago

Have you experienced any framerate issues with NMS @ 4k? One GB Xtreme can get 40-65 FPS (I overclocked mine to 2134mHz) but the frame rate drops down to 1-5 FPS then jumps up, only as i walk around on planets though.

  • 41 months ago

I actually haven't had a chance to play NMS yet! GASP! I know, life has been keeping me busy. I am taking tomorrow off work to get some other things done and will try it out and report back.

Thanks Erik

I have been following the bloggers on them. But so far nothing official yet. Maybe at gamescom. I guess we will hear about that next week if they announce anything. Seems to soon though.

But that is one of the reasons I bought a large power supply. So that if these did come to fruition, I could swap them out with my current 1080's. Not planning on it, but its an option.

Wow, hate much?

The primary use of this is video editing with some gaming on the side. Most 144hz with 1ms response are up to 28" unless I went with an OLED TV, but those are still ~$5,000. I am not a big enough gamer to care about the 15.9ms response time of my screen. It has served me well for video editing and my gaming has been great.
