From GTX 770 to GTX 970 sli before and after pics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just thought i would throw this up and see what you guys think.. This is an antec 1200, so the cable management is a bit hard to work with. but with a good 40 zip ties i tamed it. at least until i get a new case and some nice cable sleeves.

I was going from a GTX 770 2gb version to a pair of EVGA GTX 970s in sli. To top it off i switched to a Samsung 840 evo for my OS, and switched from a Hyper 212 evo+ to a Corsair H100i for my 4790k. i lost the pictures of the hyper evo before i took it out, so those wont be there rolleyes.gif

Me cleaning my 770 before replacing it (you can also see the lack of the H100i)



Got my first 970 early so i put it in while i waited for the 2nd.



Finally got the 2nd 970 for my first sli set up, after 5 years of building pc's.



Slapped the 2nd 970 along with the samsung 840 evo in just to make sure everything worked
notice the enormous web of wires.



So 40 zip ties later this is what i end up with..




While i was at it i did the wires for the speakers,monitor,internet,ect.




Had to put my beautiful dog in there thumb.gif

I was planning on getting a new case and cable sleeving before my 2nd 970, but as soon as i got the first i couldn't resist.
so dont go to hard on me tongue.gif

Looks pretty nice. I had a 1200 before this case and I had a terrible time with cable management also. Only thing I see is you are using two SLI bridges which you only need one. It wont hurt anything it just isnt needed. Other than that do you plan on upgrading your monitor soon? Thats a awful lot of GPU horse power for that monitor. But who am I kidding I have way to much horsepower for my monitor also but hey. To much is never enough in the fps department.

Yea the 1200 is way to difficult, next upgrade will be a better case. And yea i know the 2nd sli bridge does nothing but i just finished a 2nd z97 build for my brother, so i had an extra. and the ocd in me couldn't look at the empty sli fingers all day tongue.gif

And yea i know for 1080p two 970's are overkill for most games, but games like crysis 3, ASC unity, and far cry 4 all that extra horsepower comes in handy if i want to run msaa with settings on ultra. on the older games i just push a 2 or 4k resolution with DSR thumb.gif so it all works out


edited the typo about the 1080p
