built my self a new gaming computer, slowly built, still waiting on a 3rd gtx 970 currently have a 650 TI in its place
the budget is real
great PC, looks amazing
Please get an epic looking EVGA PRO 2/3-SLI Bridge when you can! The tape SLI just doesn't look good haha. Great job on the build. Can't wait to see the third 970 in!
whats with the blower cooler in the middle? is it for thermals?
it's a 650ti because he hasn't gotten his third 970 delivered yet
Awesome!! More photos, please!
Can someone explain what CMT (cluster-based multithreading) means and the benefits of it please? Thanks.
it turns lets say 4 cores on the 4790k into 8. Also there is a linus vid on this.(There are still 4 cores though it pretends like 8).
This is the heart of amd's pile driver FX cpus and intel's hyperthreading technology (though hyperthreading isn't exactly a type of CMT but acts like it).
The only problem with this type of technology is that your OS and software needs to support it. Currently nearly 0 games and some apps fully support all 8 threads which is why AMD FX get's hit hard by the i5s and i7s.
So i should get the i5 or i7?
if your gaming only then i5.
Please, if you want to discuss this more make your own thread (and send me the url if you can :)).
Razer peripherals. WHY.
How load is it?
NICE build though what other games do you play? (BTW I like those gundam model kits)
Nice PC but why The 3 970's instead of 2 980's?
was thinking the same thing, whereas he could eventually upgrade to 3 980s
3 970's performs better than 2 980's according to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwiuD1WtnNs.
Also I love The Box Mod, What Atty is That?
What is the 650Ti's job? I know it can't be SLI'd with the 970's but any specific job for it?
It could be PhysX.
Forgive my ignorance, but will (can) the 650 ti benefit this setup in SLI? Also keeping in mind that it looks like the SLI bridge only connects the 970's.
How did you vesa mount your Acer monitors?

PPLLEEAASSEE tell me I will see you on Star Citizen!
