Something this beautiful should win a design award.
Looks amazing and very stylish, but watch for liquid spills.
10 grand for a pc? How are you this rich?
Very interesting case, looks super compact. I would have preferred if they put the power supply on the bottom, they way it is held by those metal clips at the top makes me nervous. In fact I would just flip the case upside down for peace of mind :) USB at the top and power button at the bottom.
Amazing and absolute overkill. Do upload more pictures of the build if you can that shows the whole thing in normal lighting. Curious to see how it all looks.
I thought you're gonna gut it and build an overkill pc in it.
Very nice selection, both hardware and OS. Well optimized use of money.
uh okay, it says 599 for gtx 1070 in your part list. nice build tho
Did you really spend $600 for a gtx 1070?
I don't think that will work. For single GPU, it should typically be in the first slot closest to the CPU. You'll have to read your motherboard's manual for this type of thing.
This computer looks like it’s been pressed from the sides.
Did you buy this used? 7600k is an old one.
Yes, with your current CPU, you do. Integrated graphics in a processor is essentially another mini graphics card. So right now you basically have two graphic cards in your system, one that comes with the CPU and one that you bought. And if you look around in BIOS you’ll probably find something that allows you to switch which graphics unit should be used to drive the displays.
Well, it looks great. You've done a good job. It's interesting that unraid is allowing you to create virtual machines. I knew it was a NAS os, but apparently it's also a type 1 hypervisor. Looking at the docs, it looks like it's being shipped with standard KVM you'd find in most linux distributions. This alone makes it more useful than FreeNas imo.
Nice. I'm not sure why a NAS server needs a beefy GPU, a fancy case, and a light show with water pipes. Normally they run in a rack tower in some basement. But I guess it can serve as a decorative piece.
Also at this price point, it may have been worth it to consider enterprise SSDs and a proper server platform with a UPC battery and all the extra jazz for reliability. But hey, if desktop platform comes out cheaper, maybe it makes more sense.
905P would’ve been way faster at random access than any 970 pro raid array will ever be.
At this budget, if you waited a little more, you could have went with 10980xe that just got released, 18 core for 1000 bucks.
68 for cooling and 85 for motherboard doesn't make sense. I would have gone with stock cooler and 150 for the motherboard. Something like Asus Prime X470-Pro is right now only 140 USD which is approx 127 euros. And it's significantly better VRM, better USB, better PCIe, better audio, it's a class above what you've selected.
215 watts is the power this card draws from the wall under load, not the power it dissipates as heat. Given it is an efficient card, a small percentage of that energy gets wasted as heat. Either way, I can’t imagine why a stock fan on heatsink and heat pipes would be inadequate to deal with that. If you had a dual 2080 Ti in a tight case, maybe, but all this cooling set up looks insane to me. It’s a lot more decorative than functional.
Nice component selection, but 800 dollars for cooling a single, low power gpu??
I just looked at this online review of the WA7 fireflies https://kenrockwell.com/audio/woo/wa7.htm. It's distortion ratings are terrible. At low output impedance which is supposed to drive a headphone, the total harmonic distortion is rising to over 3% and up to 10% which is garbage by any audiophile standards. They must have messed something up in their analog circuit. Any THD+N rating above 0.001% over the entire 20-20kHz is exiting the audiophile realm and entering mass market products, and anything above 1% is already audible coloration of the sound. Just your ALC1220 on your motherboard is capable of 0.00115% THD, and that's the DAC on your mainstream motherboard. I bet your Focal cans will sound better on your motherboard if you follow the line level output with a properly designed analog buffer. If you want to see what the specs for a real HiFi headphone amplifier looks like see Neurochrome HP-1 (https://www.neurochrome.com/hp-1-ultra-high-end-headphone-amp/) for example. As mentioned by xujan, Chord Hugo is another excellent DAC with ultra-low distortion and 127dBA dynamic range. Compare that to WA7 Fireflies that gets 91-97 dBA dynamic range. At $1000, you might have gotten ripped off buying your headphone amp.
Wait what? i7-9800X is $600, 8 core, 16 threads, 44 lanes, 4 memory channels, and EVGA x299 FTWK is $200, so with $600 + $200 = $800 you could get it done, which is about $100 cheaper than your current set up. The only downside is lower clock rate.
dual 2080ti but only 16 lanes of pcie? You're going to bottleneck that very fast. I would have gone with a processor that supports 32lanes+.
Cute build. Thumbs up from me.
$15-30 bucks gets you a very decent heatsink and fan combo that does more than adequately at stock speeds. 9900k + heatsink = 525 + 25 = $550. 9700k + watercooling/radiator/fancy setup: $410 + $130 = $540.
The cooling solution is simply over-emphasized and is a big source of waste for money. As long as you are within the designed thermal window, it makes no difference 48 degrees vs 52.
The only time you might needs extra fancy cooling is when overclocking, and that's wasting away electricity, converting it into useless heat that needs to be removed.
The difference between 9900k and 9700k is $100.
It's times like this when you gotta buy a window-less pc case to hide it all away.
It's totally insane to spend 100+ dollars on a cooling fan for CPU, yet have a weaker CPU. All that water cooling fad can be replaced by a simple heatsink+fan combo for so much cheaper, and put the extra money towards a better processor like 9900k for double the threads. If you aren't overclocking the CPU, it's more efficient and you get less waste heat/energy. DDR4-2800 is complete waste of money also, you can buy DDR4 2666 without overclocking the ram and get a very attractive discount.
You build C++ code on your TV? That’s an odd entertainment.
Very neat. Almost sterile.
was thinking the same thing. It doesn't make a lot of sense to spend more money on RAM than on the processor. Maybe he has a specific memory-intensive task?
There is a 10 dollar mail-in rebate hahahahahaha
