Description

I use this machine as my main rig and I play games and do work at 4K. Surprisingly it does quite well for its specs.

I play Grand Theft Auto 5 at high settings 4K and get around 60-70 FPS on average.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

This cooler is awesome and it comes with two RGB fans which is cool but I decided not to use them. It does well cooling my 6 core Xeon at almost 4GHz. It's nice and quiet and looks nice too.

Motherboard

I have the black model of this board and it looks very nice for an X58 motherboard and has a bunch of features. I wouldn't reccomend buying it anymore because it's so dated now but it's nice and a pretty good bang for the buck.

Memory

It's RAM and it's old now. Looks nice and works.

Memory

Works fine and I was able to OC it to 3000MHz.

Storage

Prety fast for a boot drive.

Storage

I bought this SSD when it was over $200. It's very fast and looks kinda nice.

Video Card

Using it in April of 2019 at 4K:

At 1080p this is still a beast and it does pretty well at 1440p too, but I use it at 4K. I needed a DisplayPort 1.4 to HDMI 2.0 adapter to get 4K 60 but it's not bad gaming at 4K.

Case

This case is awesome! It is super easy to build in and looks great. My one main grip with it though is the black accents but I fixed that with a $12 can of white spray paint from Lowes. The airflow is great and cable managment is stupid easy. I highly reccomend this case.

Operating System

It's Windows so it's fine I guess, I prefer Linux but I play games so ehhh. Oh well.

Case Fan

Super quiet and it matched the fan that came with my Meshify C.

Custom

These aren't the exact ones in my system but I bought these guards because it looks nice with the RGB LED's reflecting off them.

I'm sorry, but a 4gb 290x is not getting 60-70 fps at 4k. My I7 7700k and GTX 1080 would have a little trouble at 4k on GTA5, let alone this card.

If you stare at the sky, I bet it'll run at 60-70 FPS!

In all seriousness, though, if I can find the time this weekend, I think I'm going to try and test his/her claim. I'll try to match the hardware specs as closely as possible using what I have. With all the advanced graphics settings turned off, no MSAA, and everything set at "High" (or equivalent or below, no "Very High" or "Ultra"), it might be possible to get that kind of performance.

I happen to have an old Xeon E5-1650 lying around which is a little faster than the X5660, but it'll be fine (they're both 6-core/12-thread processors only one generation apart). Maybe I'll underclock it to 2.8 GHz (or less since Sandy Bridge E/EP has better IPC) to match the X5660's stock speed. Even though s/he's running 9GB of triple-channel memory (albeit, in somewhat of a less-than-ideal configuration), I'll use 8GB of memory in dual-channel (instead of quad-channel; it's X79). I also happen to have both an R9 290 and 390X, but I think it makes more sense to use the 390X (same die, plus I'm in the middle of refurbishing the 290 and need to order some thicker thermal pads for the VRM). Of course, the 390X has 8GB of VRAM, but I don't think it will matter that much. It'll be close enough. I'll even slightly underclock the 390X to match the 290X s/he has. Obviously, this isn't a controlled, exact specs, scientific test. I just want to see if I can get anywhere near that kind of performance. I also have a 4K monitor, so I won't even have to use VSR.

If/when I get the testing done, I'll come back here and share the results.

Let me know how it goes. I'll report back with an Imgur link of the GTA V benchmark at 4K high.

Edit: The results I copied and pasted below didn't format correctly, but I'm not going to take the time to fix it.

So, I have mixed results to report. I didn't find the time (or motivation) to put the Xeon E5-1650 (X79) system on the test bench, so I used what I already had out. With a 7700K and 390X (underclocked to match the 1040 MHz core and 1250 MHz memory of his/her 290X) at 3840x2160 resolution, I ran 3 passes with the built-in benchmark and it came pretty close to an overall average of 60 FPS, but not quite. I'll post the benchmark log below.

I also loaded up the game and ran around for a while with the FPS counter on-screen and it ran pretty smoothly, dropping into 50s fairly often, but just as frequently maintaining 60-ish FPS. Out of curiosity, before I really started, the first thing I did was run the 390X at stock settings (with its factory OC of 1070 MHz core 1500 MHz memory - not an overclock, that's stock speed for a 390X) and it maintained an average over 60 FPS. Since we're only talking about a 30 MHz difference on the core, I'm guessing it was the increased memory bandwidth that made the most difference. I'll also post that benchmark log below (last).

So, I don't think it's completely crazy to say a 290X can run GTA5 on high settings at 4K 60-70 FPS. However, without an overclock (especially to the memory for that increased bandwidth... and we don't know whether or not s/he's overclocked anything), it's probably more accurate to say it will run it at an average of 50-60 FPS at 4K high settings. Also, keep in mind that GTA5 doesn't run as well as it should on AMD hardware, for whatever reason. As far as GPUs go, it's almost like you can expect one tier lower performance.

One more thing, I used to have a 1080 (two, actually, which I sold during the mining craze) and it had no real trouble running GTA5 at 4K as long as the really taxing settings weren't cranked up (particularly MSAA, especially 8x, and setting grass to ultra - those two definitely caused dips well below 60 FPS in my experience). That said, I usually ran it at 1440p because my I liked the higher refresh rate.

Anyway, here are the results.

The hell is up with the ram?

nothing wrong with the ram, it's an old board/cpu that has triple channel memory

Seeing as Gamers nexus tested this with no bottlenecks and specifically looking at the GPU I don't believe that what you are stating is phyiscally possible. Yes I realize they are testing it at Ultra but I don't think that causes an average of 40-45 fps

Your setup and computer led color scheme reminds me of my build. Also 40"+ 4k TV gaming FTW 1+

+1 for your Xeon X58 and 290X machine. It looks nice. I know everyone is giving you crap about the GTA5 performance claim, but I'm sure it still runs nice. I'm going to try to test GTA5 at 4K this weekend using a Xeon E5-1650 and 390X. Regardless, the 290X is still a great GPU, even nowadays, and those old X58 Xeons can still get the job done, especially when overclocked. If you haven't already, you should check out the Tech Yes City YouTube channel. He does a lot of stuff with X58/LGA1366.

Umm did you rush with this project? As stuff is in custom as it should not be such as the CPU, case fans, and power supply.
