Both 5820K and 6700K use DDR4. 4790K is the older one that uses DDR3.

I have never done that would need someone to tell me everything else to get besides the waterBlock. Yes I will probably do the 450D then I would rather not wait I mean what will be the point of waiting will the difference be that much bigger? The way I see it is new stuff comes out every 4 months for pcs lol

swifttech 240 is the same, as any other 240 radiator on the market. They might have called it massive compared to other radiators because it includes the pump and res built into the radiator. Same thing EK did with their predator line. In terms of heat the 240 will only be enough one of those components (cpu, gpu) You might be able to squeak by with a single 240 with the cpu and one gpu if no overclocking is done.

If your looking to water cool both gpus and the cpu, I'd recommend at least two 240mm radiators. Ideally a 360 and a 240.

Lastly if you do plan to liquid cool your gpus, I'd forget about getting the ASUS STRIX GPU's and go with the ASUS Poseidon 980 ti GPUs, as they come with water connections built into the factory air cooler. Meaning you can do both liquid cooling and air cooling.

Case wise, I'd recommend something a bit larger than the 350D and better airflow, such as the Corsair 450D, Corsair 750D, Fractal Arc Midi, Fractal Arc Xl etc.

Yea if only we lived in a perfect world where I found a liquid cooling kit I could slap onto my CPU and one that had an option to buy the GPU sli extension I would do it and get posiden cards. But unfortunately looks like I am going to have to wait to do it correctly

I mean if you guys had the funds for 5820k or 4790k or 2700k to be cooled on water with overclock which would you choose ?
post #35 of 71
5820k would be my personal preference out of those listed.

If i was to go with a 350D corsair or a 450D corsair case... Would it be a better choice to run SLI 980 Ti reference cards or aftermarket? I was told cooling wise, on some cases it will be better for reference cards... Although i figured if i bought 350D with a mobo that has 3 Pci Slots i could space the cards out to have some what of a gap? Or am i mistaken? Then upgrade the fans in front from one 140MM to 2 140MM fans up front! Then liquid cooling on the CPU with AIO closed loop! Thoughts?

Such setup might do better on paper and get a higher avg fps, but I read some 4K comparisons of Fury CF and GF SLi and even though the avg fps looks great for AMD the frame "fluidity" is just terrible, I would guess with the third card this is not gonna get any better. Plus you can run sli 980ti on 850W with enough oc headroom. That's probably close to 400W in power draw difference altogether.
If you're going for a mind boggling 4K rig I'd still suggest waiting for 2016 GPUs. Pascal might be 2x faster than Maxwell. For now, get the 5820k/6700k (both will be excellent choices) and a pair of 290x's to hold you until q2/q3 2016. Buy them 2nd handed and you'll be sure not to lose too much (if anything) in resale value. It's not an ideal setup but certainly gonna do well enough.

So what your saying is technically it would not be that good to have Aftermarket cards for SLI vs having Reference Cards? So if i wanted to use a Reference 980 Ti for a 350D case but for the 450D Mid tower i would be fine using 2x 980 ti Aftermarket cards?

i prefer to go with Nvidia because i have yet to experience there GPUs i do see what you are talking about regarding the Fury but was told 2 cards is usually more then enough. Maybe 3 may be to many imo?

aftermarket will always be better, who told you otherwise ?

Well i was told if i was running SLI configuration that the fans on reference model will not spread so much heat vs the aftermarket ones.... Im not sure so much information on the internet i have noticed alot of it is personal opinion. I hate choosing components i just want the best build i can get for the money! With room to overclock CPU and GPU will having fairly cool temps!
