Description

I run Hyper-V on Win10 pro and game on this. The GPUs are not both the Titaniums but I couldn't figure out how to make it reflect that...

The water cooler is actually a Cooler Master Master Liquid 240, but I don't see it in this site.

Yeah I need to cable manage this (still)

Looks interesting, would be nice to see more pictures after some cleanup and new cable management.

Very nice.

The GPU is probably the weakest link, but I am ok with tuning some games down a little.

Uhh... I don't think the 1060 is a weak link. It's capable of playing games at 1440P pretty decently, and smashes out games at 1080P 100+FPS.

Some 1080p games the 1060 gets over 100 fps but in most it's around the 80 fps mark or if you look at ARK survival evolved you get a nice smooth 17fps avg. at 1080p max settings.

What in blue, I'm sorry, neon green blazes is that fan? I've never seen a fan that shade of clear/green. And is that 200mm? Also 1060 is the god of 1080p so you should have no prob playing 1080 at ultra

I had the case wrong. It's a Apevia X-Sniper2-GN mid-tower case. Got the fan somewhere, Microcenter I think.

It's certainly a unique fan and case. But that cable management, ouch

yeah, that fan, by the way, it warped some time ago, I just got it spinning again but putting 2 of the mount screws UNDER the housing for the fan, to prop it further from the case siding. And then 2 to actually screw it into the case siding so it wouldn't fall off. So it has a gap, but spins again.

Some of the fan vanes are just bent or waped a little. It doesn't generate a LOT of airflow either, but it is good to have some positive suction into the case other than the power supply at the bottom.

lol it might be a good idea to invest in some twin 140s from corsair

For the CPU? I have a CoolMaster 240 on it, but it's not in the pcpartpicker db last I checked.

I'm confused, the case in the part list is not the case in the picture.

Any idea what the cooler master 120 liquid cooler keeps the cpu at under heavy load?

  • 28 months ago

It's actually a cooler Master 240 liquid cooler I got a Microcenter. The PCPartPicker site didn't have the part when I built this list.

So I run hyper-v on 10 on this. 1060 6GB and 1070 in slots 1 and 3. And over clocked to 3.75 Ghz. No heat issues. Ever.

I'll run cpu-z and check it while I run cryptonote miner on 8 cores. See where it tops out at and post back here.

I really want to do something similar to your build, but running Ubuntu on bare metal and Windows 10 on a VM.

Hey there. Yeah that was my original goal actually. To do the immersion thing and learn linux as my main pc. However, I can't find a quality way to use a video card to render 3d/games inside a guest VM with Linux as the host. They do have video pass-through I'm told, but that dedicated a card to the virtual guest, not the same. Win10 makes this dumb easy with RemoteFX

Well my plan is to use the "Looking Glass" KVM to create and run my Windows VM, but I'm new to the whole VM game. I'm just looking for something more constructive to do than play GTA V all the time. :-p

maybe you need more ram if want better read for that size storage and up your gpu kinna hard to hit 3 monitors

Forgot I had that 1920x1200 on there, I did have issues with 3 monitors so I sold the 1920x1200 and kept the 2 1920x1080s

Speaking of cable management, anyone have any advice on what I should do, since its pseudo-green field here?

I'm thinking of some of those sticky cable holders to put in the case itself and maybe some crimp cables?

  • 30 months ago

Try velcro strips, they're much easier to redo than cable ties and you can group loads of cable together if you just want to get them out of the way. Do you have any space behind the back panel in that case to route cables?

Cable management is really for maintenance and aesthetic purposes though, just FYI. Bad management won't really hurt your temps much (unless you have a sff case).

You should definitely look into QEMU/KVM on Linux for your Hypervisor...

If that sounds too daunting, you can buy unRAID (a paid Linux distro) which is the same thing, but takes all the guesswork out of it.

you don't need all ram to be the same size per slot. they are two channel, so each pair needs to be the same.

I can add some more pics, sure. And to be fair, it's really more, like, a 1/4 *** pic. The insides are something of an embarrassment, so you might be amused by the pics I take shortly.

Just take your time man to clean up the cables.

I believe you meant "Could you upload some more pictures for your build and/or clean up the cable management. Also can you have two different size sets of ram?"
