[Work in Progress] Parts List for Build Log

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My next build parts list is as follows on pcpartpicker, watercooling parts will have a list of their own below.

When critiquing, keep in mind that the CPU dependent parts (i.e. CPU, motherboard) will not be purchased until after the launch of IB-E. This is to insure I get them at the best price as this is not a budget build but I would like to keep the cost down where I can afford to.

The PSU and peripherals will be sleeved in MDPC-X red and titanium by either myself or Martin over at PsychoSleeve should I feel to lazy and manage to stomach his ridiculous prices.

Internal Components:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LJwZ

Case:

CaseLabs Merlin SM8 or Magnum M8

Watercooling Components:

Radiator: AlphaCool Full Copper UT60 360mm/480mm depending on which case is purchased.

Waterblocks: XSPC RayStorm for CPU, EK Acetal+Nickel for GTX 670.

Tubing: Tygon Antimicrobial Silver 3/8*1/2 or Tygon Clear 3/8*1/2.

Fittings: Bitspower Matte Black Compression Fittings 3/8*/12.

Coolant: Mayhems Red X1/Pastel.

Pump: Swiftech MCP655.

Reservoir: FrozenQ Liquid Fusion 250mm/400mm.

Fans: Corsair SP120


Internal Components are pretty much static, though I need help with the loop. I don't know what the best config is, whether I should run dual, best fan configuration, etc. I would love help with these parts and may take advice on the internals depending on how much evidence is given.

Are you sure about the 670 4 GB's? The way their memory is set up, it's impossible to ever use all 4 GB of those cards. If I were you I'd be looking at 2x 7970's or maybe even a GTX Titan with 6 GB of VRAM. Nice build though. thumb.gif

Thanks!

I didn't know that about the 4GBs. So there is really no point to them? If that is the case, I may switch to SLI MSi 670 PEs, or a Titan.

Would the Titan perform better than SLI 670s?

Well here are some Titan and 670 benchmarks: http://www.pixelenemy.com/nvidia-gtx-titan-benchmarks-revealed/

So you can kind of estimate SLI 670's performance to a single Titan from the charts on that page. There are ups and downs to both though. With 2x 670 2 GB SLI, you have more power consumption, more heat, more noise, and not a lot of VRAM, but probably will perform better than a single Titan. But with a Titan, you have performance that isn't as good as 2x GTX 670's, but won't ever hit the VRAM limit, and none of the SLI issues.

So you can kind of estimate SLI 670's performance to a single Titan from the charts on that page. There are ups and downs to both though. With 2x 670 2 GB SLI, you have more power consumption, more heat, more noise, and not a lot of VRAM, but probably will perform better than a single Titan. But with a Titan, you have performance that isn't as good as 2x GTX 670's, but won't ever hit the VRAM limit, and none of the SLI issues.

I am considering the Titan now. But the 670s in SLI are still $100 cheaper than the cheapest Titan.

I'll have to think about it. Do you think the Titan can run dual U2312HMs with the same performance as the 670s?

And then, of course, at this price range, what about a 690? It would offer an upgrade to quad-SLI eventually and provides almost the performance of three Titans for $1000 less.
