Description

An updated build from my previous one that I have posted. Changed my Titan x to these 1080 beasts. I also added the 950 Pro ssd and some other stuffs, such as the LEDs, Fans and cables. I am really happy with the new GPUs that I got, pretty much every game @4k 60hz can be maxed out easily. I did overclock the CPU and GPU. Glad I can share this with everyone :)

*Sorry for the bad cable management under the table :(

Your next GPU upgrade should be in about 100000000 years with that amount of GPU power.

As soon as you can get your hands on it, pick up one of the new HB SLI Bridges. Otherwise, congrats on the two new cards!

how much of a performance increase with the HB bridge are we looking at?

450mhz vs 650mhz Some people say it doubles

Try to scratch the green logo off of the Geforce logo with sandpaper for the white LED

RIP warranty? Or no? I might try that though. Great idea.

  • 40 months ago

That's an essential intrusion into the substance of the object and it definitely does void warranty.

It shouldn't ruin your warranty because all you do is scratch off the green paint... There are good videos on YT that show you how... Warranty shouldn't be voided here

Some people say it does void, not going to risk it atm. Maybe sometime later I will do that :D

I actually didn't think it would void my bad... I wouldn't recommend it then...

Hey, I have never heard of scraping the logo with sandpaper before. Thanks for the info actually :D

the first thing i said when i saw the 2 1080's was Fvck. lmao +1 man hope those **** are treating you like a king! The only problem with those cards are thermal throttling which is seen through different benchmarks online

  • 40 months ago
  • 4 points

I don't realy have thermal problems so far, maybe because of the custom fan curve. Thanks for the kind words!

I think ALOT of people in this community would like to know what the real world PSU requirements are for this setup. You would be doing a honorable service to us all.

Is the ribbon SLI bridge working alright? Some people were saying that only the rigid bridge would work.

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

It works just fine. Some people/reviewers were saying that rigid bridge with leds have the speed of the new HB sli bridge, not sure yet if this is true though.

For cable management get an old CD rack and screw it under your table (look at my build). It was the cheapest way to get a decent result, otherwise get the under rack from IKEA.

Great build btw !

Why would you get the founders edition?

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

Because sandwiched gpus on a micro atx case like mine doesn't have the best airflow. Blower fans exhaust the hot air out of the case. AIB cards exhaust the hot air inside the case which makes the temps of other components hotter, possibly the gpu as well.

You didn't need the founders edition though

I was using my friends GPU before having these, so I need them, why don't I need the founders edition?

you can find some comparisons online between SLI FE GPU and SLI open fan type GPU.Tthere was a significant temperature rise on both GPUs, especially the top one, in the open fan GPUs; while they might not have been 1080s, but the findings still hold true.

Seems much faster than my GTX 970. I will probably die of old age before AMD can equal this. +1

Scratch the green paint off of the GeForce GTX logo so it fits in better with your build.

But can it run Crysis?

Just kidding, awesome build, sad that the GeForce logo is green, should have waited for the EVGA SC.

That is what I wanted to but since many people say Non-blower style will heat up more than blowers, so I went with this route. Thanks!

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

It does heat up, but it's only 1-3 °C , and since you installed your H110i on the roof, the hot air would get away without heating the CPU. Anyway, planning on doing custom watercooling?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

yeah I am planning to, but not sure if I am going to do it. Too lazy to mod my case.

  • 40 months ago

Are you losing some performance (not as if you don't have some to spare ;) ) because you are not using HB sli instead or normal. Alternatively have you tried just using dx12 multi gpu and seen something different.

Add a second sli bridge to the second set of pins if possible for even more POWA!

Hi Ultimatester!

Thanks for posting your awesome build. I've decided to base my VR presentation machine on this build since I liked it so much. I'll however be using a gygabyte board, an m.2 drive for primary OS drive. For casing and all the rest I decided to copy your design mostly because I'm new to machine builds, and know nothing about airflow.. I had a question about your custom cable mods. Were any of those parts necessary for a working system, or were they cosmetic only. Below is my build based on yours. If anything seems like it wouldn't work, or if you have any other general advice for the build, it would be much appreciated. Thanks again!

Average reaction "OMFG! 1-1-1-1-1080 in SLI!! Can it run Witcher 3 4k?" blah blah blah....

My reaction: "Oh? 1080 SLI? .....K."

Solid looks, great power in small size. Seeing this gave my eyes a refresh from endless 6700K and 980 TI I've been seeing for months.. Thanks for sharing.

Only in the top 99% of all builds ever on firestrike extreme? Shame on you! You should have gone for the 100% percentile! JK great build looks amazing!

That's the longest non-sentence I've ever read. I'm not sure what any of it means though... I sense bitterness.

  • 40 months ago

Lol...all the same, a premium for a 'reference card' that throttles on load out of the box on an open test bench isn't ideal. Partner cards will have better power management and cooling out of the box probably for less.

But some people want a GPU NOW and dont want to wait for 2017, also, video card VRAM is not the sole dictator of card performance. The current GDDR5 is fine.

*GDDR5X. Why should I get one 1070 when I have the money to get two 1080? These things are already capable to play any games at 4k @60hz. What are you talking about? Lol
