One of my goals for this build was to go with a GTX 690 and I think I may have figured out how.

Hey Smith, the GTX 690 is a great card, but if you haven't bought it already, I'd suggest getting a Titan instead.

I'd have to agree with this. SLI implementation (although better than crossfire) isn't exactly completely smooth. I believe Anandtech and Tomshardware both did articles into modern graphics benchmarking and found that both multi GPU techs aren't up to par. However, Titan is about the same price and nearly meets the performance. Not to mention you can basically tune it to whatever thermal/power threshold you want.

I've thought about the TITAN and I agree that it would probably be the better choice. Unfortunately I am strapped for cash and am not counting on any being available when I can buy one. Water cooling the rig will be even farther in the future. I've read the TITAN can be pretty damn quiet and that would be great while I save. I guess I'm more exploring my options right now and the 690 seemed like the biggest reach in terms of feasibility.

Add me for number 033!
All satin black, purple switch and will be a light purple/violet accented build. Thinking about MDPC violet/purple sata cables/6-pin with purple Mayhems die. Looking forward to do this even if it is my first full on water-cooled rig, the only thing is that I won't start the build until Haswell or maybe even DDR4.

The 690 is a good choice, just be aware:

Without VSync on:

SLI isn't as smooth as a single GPU. There is small almost unnoticeable stutter when panning and moving (bear in mind a single GPU also does this, problem is exacerbated with 2 GPUS it seems). Good thing Nvidia seems to have eliminated microstutters for the most part.

VSync should get rid of just about all stutter giving you glassy smooth pans at the expense of input lag.

SLI adds 1 frame of input lag per GPU. At 120 fps it's 8 ms, which if SLI lets you get a framerate that high is kind of a fair trade off and just about unnoticeable, but 16 ms at 60 fps is a little closer to being noticeable (we can feel around 20ms of lag according to Carmack) and depending on the input lag in the rest of your system that number may push it into the noticeable range.

I was perfectly happy with the 690 until I was pointed out these things, but since I mainly play competitive twitch shooters I am considering ditching SLI altogether until Nvidia updates the tech.

But as long as you are aware of the caveats, SLI does give the biggest performance increase, allowing you to downsample, add layers of AA while maintaing 60 fps and above. And really most people will not notice the issues I've listed above.

Add me for 38! Thinking of doing white/black/blue/grey, will see how it goes.

There is a 80Plus report: http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/psu_reports/ACPC_MP4ATX47-55FEP_ECOS%201270_550W_Report.pdf which shows that full load on the 12V rails is only 384W (compared to ST45SF which has 432W). It's also split between four 8A rails, with no indication how the PCIe is connected. The PCIe cable daisy chained, so that doesn't look good.

More worryingly... Newegg includes a photo of the specs sticker. You can see there the UL mark: E130643. If you go to underwriters labs and search this number, it doesn't exist. After a bit of googling I found that the OEM/fabricator for this product could be Topower. They use a UL mark E130843 which is very similar number. But if you check that, there's no powersupply listed with 4x8A rails. So very likely that this PSU was never certified by UL, and therefore cannot be considered safe for use. The TÜV mark 18176 isn't available for viewing either: either manufacturer license expired, certification revoked, or never existed.

So yeah, it likely won't power a GTX 660, let alone a GTX 690.

I've thought about this a lot. I concluded that the best for me was to use my initials. This seems to be unlikely to regret (this case wont ever be sold!), and if you do actually regret it, it'll still be better than "1337h4x0r". I did also think about using my first name or nick.

Maybe it's just me, but on some pictures I think it looks like there's basically a hole in the back of the case. The nameplate itself is then mounted "behind" this hole. If this is true, then you could replace it in the future. I don't know why I think that the case is charming with a little personal message.

Also, normally I would find things like that unnecessary. Maybe it's just the look I imagine I'd get if someone would ask me where I got that chassis and I'd just say "Check out the back bro, custom." cool.gif
