"GOD-LIKE" The God Build.

Welcome Mortals! Prepare for the journey ahead of you.

I present to all of you the first ever 'true' god build! This has been 5 minutes in the making and is finally finished! The false deity's that plague this land shall bow down to the true creator! For all the users who wanted Manirelli to do one I say NO! Manirelli's builds are nothing but plagues to the every-changing landscape of 'build-guides'*. So I decided to take it upon myself to present you the true eternal king! Sit back relax and enjoy the walls of text describing electronics!

The CPU: The True god's would never settle for anything less than the i7-5930k*. This processor is clocked at 3.5ghz and is a 6-core/12-thread CPU. Unlike the pathetic 5820k, This processor has 40 PCI-e Lanes instead of a measly 28. (A PCI Express (PCIe) lane consists of two differential signaling pairs, one for receiving data, one for transmitting data, and is the basic unit of the PCIe bus.)

Motherboard: This motherboard is huge! (e-atx) It's an x99 motherboard (obviously) supports up-to 128gb of Memory ("unstoppable") Supports crossfire and 4-way SLI. Supports ram speeds up-to 3000mhz. It has 8 sata 6gb/s ports, and one sata express. It even has on-board usb 3.0 (HOLY CRAP!!!).

HDD/SDD: Every god needs back up and this machine does exactly that. With the WD black series operating at raid 1, anytime one fails the other is gonna keep going! These bad boys are each 3tb drives with an RPM of 7200 (revolutions-per-minute). God's however need speed as well as reliability and that's where the Samsung 850-evo comes in. This SSD is a 500gb drive has read speeds of up to 540mb/s and write speeds of up to 520mb/s. True power!

GPU: What's a god without muscle? (No Icarus! You flew too close to the sun!). Three-way sli gtx 980's and you're good to go for 4k. each gpu sports a clock-speed of 1.19ghz, three display ports and 4gb of GDDR5 memory Which when you stack it all together equals 12gb of vram!! (Nah it doesn't stack like thatDirectx12) It has a tdp of 164 watts (which is quite hot for maxwell or is it? HAHAHAHA).

Case: The body of the god needs to be sturdy and look amazing. Presenting the Phantom! Already sounds Bad-ass but you wait. This case sports 4 5.25" bays for up-to 4 optical drives! 6 3.5" bays for up-to 6 HDD's. The case supports pretty much every single motherboard size! it's black, made out of SECC steel and ABS plastic (chassis, outside respectively) It comes with a 4-channel fan controller, an sd card reader and an integrated HUE LED lighting system.

Power supply: God's need energy, because without it they become Aergia (no one likes her). So with this build you get a tier 1 platinum rated power supply that has a wattage of 1600. It's fully modular so it helps with cable management and is just perfect for what you need. This will also allow another gtx 980 to be added (though three is the sweet spot).

Fans: Added so you can replace the Kraken's standard fan's.

Manirelli It's all in good fun! Yes guys I know xeon's exist I also know the 5960x exists. However this is supposed to be a god build people can buy.

Summary: I hope you liked the build any feedback is always welcome. If you like it so much I'll do more (each with their own theme, this was greek mythology if you couldn't tell, the theme was a bit lack-luster though i understand that) Anyhow, If you like this one check out my others (or don't it's coolBastards!) Have fun building and have fun gaming!

    I'd recommend a bigger SSD for those who like to have a large game library—I put a 1 TB in mine late last year and it's already more than half full(OS and programs plus at max 32 GB swap file). Possibly the same for storage, as my total 5 TB storage is starting to get a bit crowded at this point...but that'll be on a case by case basis.

    Very nitpicky, but I'd be inclined to grab the T2 PSU for a better efficiency rating than the P2 model...you probably won't trip a breaker on this build as it is, but you never know, depending on available outlets and your other equipment. Some houses' wiring would have to be fully replaced to support higher than a 15 amp breaker, which can get nasty expensive.

    I don't have experience with your chosen RAM, but I would do some shopping around...I've noticed in the past that Corsair sometimes doesn't manage the tightest timings. Again, a small nitpick.

    As for the case, I think I'd prefer either the Enthoo Primo or a Caselabs Merlin SM8 over your choice.

    Otherwise, I think you've gone for a pretty good build. Good work. :)

    1) Agreed, however I figured 6tb of storage and 0.5tb of ssd storage is enough for most people. Then again as you said it's case by case so That's very plausible.

    2) I find the p2 model to be perfect for it's intended use. I also was comparing aussie/usa so I can make the build a good value for both currencies which is why the p2 was chosen. All of these parts (minus the ssd) is purchasable in Australia and America So I figured making a build which is purchasable in both currencies without having to change out parts was a better approach. Thanks for the advice anyway though.

    3) The timings are iirc 15-17-17-35. Take what you will out of this or this

    4) the case was chosen for the reasons I gave in previous comments but I like the Enthoo primo as well.

    The 980's where chosen for affordability but yes I agree with you! Thanks for checking out my guide. If you have any other comments on the guide's structure itself what would they be? I am always looking to improve.

    • 59 months ago

    As a god-like build, I wouldn't think price is much of an issue. Which would open the way for higher counts of DDR4, a couple more or even higher storage SSD's. Perhaps even PCI-E SSD's. Also, While WD-Blacks are amazing, they are fairly loud. I have a 2tb in my personal build, and it's the loudest piece. screaming above everything else, even the case fans on my air 540. Perhaps some quieter alternative?

    • 59 months ago
    • 1 point

    I agree sorta, I chose god-like to be a thing people could buy because it's meant to follow the structure of the staff's guides, I could have added so much stronger and better stuff but I figured making it affordable would be priority. Yea I agree about the ssd's but i wanted performance over storage to be the main thing. As far as I'm aware PCI-E ssd's don't actually gain that much performance. Though I agree about the noise I kinda think it show the power of the build not really obviously.

    • 59 months ago
    • 1 point

    I understand the affordability to follow staff guilds, but does pci-e really not offer that much of an increase over SATA?

    • 59 months ago
    • 1 point

    After reading up further it seems it add's a fair amount of performance (apparently it acts like two drives acting in raid 0, with only 1 drive) So I believe I was wrong. Thanks for the suggestion (Though I doubt anyone would be willing to lose a slot for an ssd)

    • 59 months ago
    • 1 point

    You actually don't need the 5930k unless you're doing 4-way. Adding the fourth GPU doesn't add enough performance to make it worth the money in addition to possibly buying a heftier PSU to accommodate the wattage. As far as the HDDs being loud...are you wearing headphones or have your killer sound system and subwoofer blasting in your room? Nuff said.

    Those box fans are also on the loud side. I included box fans that I've been recommended to use for the radiator.

    That case is not the best option for airflow and ventilation. NXZT Phantom 630 is a better option because we can mount the SSD on the panel for cable management, remove the 1 bay cage and 3 bay cage, leave the 2 bay cage four the HDDs, move that cage to the second slot next to the PSU and achieve much better airflow and cooling from the 200mm fan in the front.

    I won't bother with the MSI Gaming 9 mobo, we won't need it and also the integrated sound software by Creative Labs uses a 1.0 version where as the Gaming 7 uses 2.0...of whatever model that is. Google it if you so desire. Plus, the price difference is necessary just as Intel's pricing between the 5820k and the 5930k because the big difference is the number of PCI lanes that enable the 5930k to have 4-way. Feel free to look the specs and benchmarks yourself. Any information someone has to add is beneficial for everyone :)

    So as the cherry atop this Rig Sundae, are you aware of LED strips that you can install into your case? LED strips that you can adhere to the back of your I/O?

    Oh yes...pimp your rig without breaking your bank further without buying the Phantom 820.

    So again regarding the small performance increase in gaming with the 5930k, if you really want that 4-way and those few extra FPS then go ahead. If you truly wish to make this a "Godly" tier then use the 5960X, get a fourth GPU and a more accommodating PSU. Essentially your wallet will cry "rape!"

    This build is at least $1000 less than the rig I am looking at...minus the monitor and whatever else I took off (I forget). I left the LED in the part list so that more may know about it.

    1) I know about the pci-e lanes (it's why I mentioned them, I was trying to be humorous with the measly part, it obviously wasn't funny)

    2)The hdd's are louder compared to standard drives. And the fan's are within acceptable standards if you're gaming it's unlikely you will hear them.

    3) I actually chose the mobo to fit the red/black theme and that's it. I could have chosen other motherboards true but i figured this motherboard represents godlike in a better light than a cheaper but only slightly inferior board, what if they decide they want to add another card?

    4) I am aware of led strips the fans are to replace the krakens fans not to add colour to the case, it's an added benefit.

    5)ahh I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the 820 phantom having inferior airflow to the 630. I find it has amazing airflow for three way sli and cpu and all the other stuff. Also it already comes with an integrated led controller so buying one isn't really needed, though I can understand why it's added.

    6)this was for gaming that's kinda why 64gb of ram isn't present.

    7) This was made to be 'godly' but affordable and I think it represents that. I could have gone full on and gimped it to the max but that would help no one would it? People have already done that and that's cool. It wasn't the objective here.

    I don't think you understood the premise of the build....
