[HYDRA]: Classified - the Giant Workstation / 5+Ghz Gaming Battlestation on Intel X299, nVidia SLI and Extreme Watercooling

Hello guys! 

I have not been here since 2011... Oh my God...
This is my last Project "CERBERUS" buided in 2011 (i7 [email protected]/ EVGA E760 Classified/ 24Gb DDR3/ 3x EVGA GTX580/ 1500W PSU)...
I have posted it here: https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...3-way-sli.html


From that time I obviously builded systems, but I not had an inspiration to build something WOW. But now I have it. So lets start to do crazy beauty!
I want to start a blog about my new upcomig custom rig. This build would be a hybrid between professional and gaming pc. This system would be within unique custom modded giant case, with crazy watercooling, only black color with tons of RGB and with huge triple professional monitor setup!

It names...


I have already bought all my hardware, and waiting for the case mod. It would be finished in 1 week and I will start a building.

So, I want to show you the spec list of my upcoming build:

Why LGA2066 and Core i9 9900X?




As I mentioned before, this is a hybrid of professional graphic workstation and gaming PC. I am a professianal color grader and visual fx creator. But also I love to play in 4K / 60fps on Ultra settings in my 43" center monitor)
Thats why I choosed the LGA2066 and Core i9 9900X with can OC to 5+Ghz under a VERY powerful Water Cooling!

The ROG Rampage VI Extreme has an incredible power and overclocking stability, especialy with watercooling.
Which alowes me to recieve a great workstation performance, and in the same time a gaming performance even better than 9900K
With i9 9980XE I will NOT get this frequency and this gaming performance...

The reasons of LGA2066:
*This system would be a MUCH more powerful, than i9 9900K + Z390 in my work
* Equal CPU frequency in overclocking (you just need a better cooling solution, but I have it!) and equal or even more gaming performance!
* 2 more cores in CPU in my i9 9900X
* More cache in the CPU
* 44 PCI-E Lines in the CPU, to get a full potential of SLI
* 8 slots / 4 channel / 4200+ Mhz Memory. Now I have a 64Gb, but in future I will can do 128Gb

Why 2x GTX 1080Ti in SLI and not a RTX 2080Ti or even RTX2080Ti in SLI ?

Because I'm using ONLY watercooling and I dont want to use ragular air cooled GPUs, and if I want 2x 2080Ti in SLI with integrated full-cover waterblocks - it would cost me a 3000+$ It's insane!!! The performance which I will revieve - woundn't cost such money...
I bought 2x rare AORUS Extreme GTX1080Ti WaterForce WB 11GB with only 1200$ and the performance that I recieved is MUCH more than with single RTX2080Ti and them cost me less, then 2080Ti with watercooling cost!

Here you go some photos of my GPUs:




And here you go tests with 2xGTX1080Ti VS 2080Ti

Even a ragular 1080 in SLI in more powerful than 2080Ti

Yes, there some games without SLI support, but in fact... to play them in 4K - the single 1080Ti with is more than enought!

So I guess that 2x1080Ti in SLI is an ideal for today, till the next gen of RTX GPU will arive!

Those frame times from SLI are insane, i would take 80FPS stable over 110FPS with massive frame times in SLI.
I hope you did your research before going for SLI, you are always better off buying the most powerful GPU you can to avoid SLI.

However if you have the money, go ahead. its still a good experience in games that support it.

Oh and also, Hail Hydra! Sick build i must say.

Believe me, I know what I am doing. These 2x 1080Ti are for 1-1.5 years. After that - I will buy an SLI of brand new GPUs from nVidia.
I have a GIANT case, and I cant use only one graphics card. It just would NOT fit well inside it!

Thanks for the good words, overall

Thanks! My experience with 1080 Ti SLI has been very good. I use it back to back with a single Titan RTX and notice very little SLI stuttering or the like. Scaling only limited by CPU power.

Yes, and 9900X on 5+Ghz can performe ideal scaling I guess)
I cant admit any sttutering...

About the RAM

Well, I have a interresting story about it...

In the beggining of this project (on the idea creation stage) I wanted to buy a 32Gb 4200Mhz Corsair (4x8Gb) because I wanted to buy a 9900K, before it has arived and become so hot (temperatures) as it is.

Yes I have more than enough cooling for even 1.45V 24/7, but this is just mainstream CPU with low cash and only 16x PCI-E lines... What the f... it is so hot?!  And in addition to this, that 9900K CPU is a peace of crap in workstation. And 32Gb RAM is also not enough by the way.

Thats why I decided to buy the TOP-end DDR4 RAM G.SKILL TridentZ 8x8Gb 4200Mhz (19-19-19-39 1.4V) and LGA2066 with i9 9900X.

And this is it:





Now I have a RAM, which alows me to work well (64gb) and do gaming and overclocking (4200+Mhz on 19-19-19-38 1.4V).

I am happy!
