Ok to daisy chain all of this? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
SSD's make a computer much faster for the average person. Booting in 20 seconds or so is really nice. Get him a few in raid. Add a 1TB hdd as well for all his media so it doesn't slow down the SSDs. TBH that combined with a good CPU is what makes a computer do stuff instantly. One GPU is more than enough.

For people like that who aren't concerned with gaming, peripherals and stuff are a much better option to invest in, especially since GPUs lose their value so fast. I don't know if he asked you for peripherals, but if so get him a nice big IPS monitor or two, a mechanical keyboard, a good sound card, and some nice headphones. Those are the things that make using a computer that much more enjoyable.

Personally, I am not going to try to convince you to buy less components, but I don't believe that one could cool a 990x, and 3 GTX 580s with a single 360mm rad, though I have 2 240mm rads on my CPU and when I turn one rad's fans right down, it doesn't impact temps, so maybe with a 360 rad you could... I wouldn't exactly know as I don't have one, but I'd imagine you would at least need some high performance fans and high FPI rad, causing lots of noise, which I would hate, though your friend may not.
Also, from what I have read, Danger Den waterblocks for graphics tend to be unrestrictive, so they would be a good choice it trying to do this all in one loop.

I know you can cool a CPU and 3 GPUs of a single RX360 rad. Thats what I run. IMO, I would use EK GPU waterblocks with a triple SLI bridge in parallel, as so you won't be daisychaining the heat from chip to chip. It would would be CPU then split across the three GPUs and back to the rad. If he has $10K to spend, you can easily build this system no sweat. Oh, and I agree with the other posts. Add some SSDs to if he wants speed.

As for cases, a Case Labs M8 or larger will house all that stuff easily versus a HAF-X

seriously? 10k?

He's much better off with a cool and small i7 2600K build with some nice SSDs and a lower end GPU if he does not game. What's the point of having a huge PC case with fans that sound like jet engines when all you want is something that does day to day stuff fast?

So my friend gave me a 10k budget to build him a new computer (yeah, he's a rich kid). He's not a gamer, all he wants is that it does everything instantly. So, here's my list of cooling stuff so far (even though he's not a gamer, i still hooked him up )

Cooler Master HAF X case
i7-990X
3x GTX 580 in sli
Danger Den cpu 1/2in 360mm cooling kit
Danger Den waterblocks for 580s

thats all you need to know for now i think.
I just wanted to know if its possible to daisy chain the lc system to cool all the graphics cards plus the 990x. If so, in what way should i configure it? If not, what else do i need to get? I might start a thread eventually documenting this beast of a build...not for a while though since he wants his house finished before we go and put it in . Thanks guys.

Use this build log as a template - switch the SR-2 with a diff motherboard and the 2 cpu's with the 990x and basically you should be ok

yes going sli with whree cards is overkill be better getting 1 top off the range card and a 120hz 3d monitor and nvidea 3d vision and a blue ray burner maybe an evga sr2 motherboard 2 xenon chips to go in it plus plenty off ramm a couple off ssd drives in raid configeration a 2 or 3 terrabite hard drive for storage you coul try 2 240 rads and put one off them between the chips or graphics card this is starting to sound like my dream build

This. Also, you can use a single RX360 to cool all of that however the temperatures won't be as low as one spending that much would like. Go with a larger case (800D, M8, or other) and use more rad.

Alright, thanks for the input you guys. So, I'm updating here:
Changing to Corsair 800D Case
Changing to 1x GTX590
Dropping in SSDs...
+2x 3TB drives in RAID 0.
May or may not switch to Sandy Bridge. I really like the sound of 6 cores. Need some swaying in either direction.
This might change to an SSD discussion. What SSDs would you guys recommend? I originally had the Gigabyte G1 Sniper+the 990x in that HAF X case, if you need that kind of information.
I would prefer to keep it as an actual drive as opposed to a PCI card...simplifies installation. And I would like to have the drives as high capacity as possible. So, more input requested.
