Our master race is evolving too fast for me. I'm still on a GT 610...

Sweet build, but with $4500, you probably should have gone with another graphics card!

Please rename this "Got Money, Don't Give a F***."

But, seriously, this thing is awesome! Enjoy it while it lasts! I get the feeling you'll feel the dual-GPU itch soon :)

Omaygod, a Haswell-E, that's so sexy good job :) by the way, you're getting 40C on full load why not push the CPU to 4ghz ? And don't forget to upload the benchmarks !

You could have done more pictures on your cable management and other stuff, but other than that, pretty good build.

I am hand sleeving my power supply for a unique look. It was not ready at the time of posting, so I used the default cables. It does not look as pretty as I would like.

Please post some benchmarks, I need to see! +1 for Haswell-E

I'm planning to upgrade to Haswell E,I already have an H100i, do the last gen LGA2011 mounting hardware work on the v3 LGA2011?

  • 58 months ago

The LGA2011-3 socket is NOT compatible with previous LGA2011 CPUs. However, coolers that worked on LGA 2011 still work with current LGA2011-3 sockets.

Ok yeah i knew that the sockets are not backwards compatible, just wanted my h100i to work!

  • 58 months ago

Yeah the H100i should work.

  • 58 months ago

I believe cooler mounting is the same, the difference is in the socket, not its shape

  • 58 months ago

Correct, the sockets are physically the same; just the electronics are different.

Thought so. Thank goodness because otherwise, 2011-3 waterblocks would cost a metric butt ton.

More pictures will be posted once I am done sleeving the PSU for the second GPU.

One of the 1st things I'd have to change is Windows 8,

I personally won't go past windows 7 since so much is bs anyway on windows 8

  • 57 months ago

The difference in SSD speed is outrageous. Performance wise windows 8 is well above windows 7.

  • 56 months ago

I agree, Windows 8 speed is really good, even with my 5400 rpm HDD xD, especially the boot times

Don't you ever plan to add GTX980s to this beautiful machine?

  • 56 months ago

I'm waiting for the big maxwell. as nice as the 980's are, the 20% upgrade-ish would just mean I would wind up buying the big die maxwell when it comes out.

i am a little confused about the monitors...a primary and a slave maybe?

  • 56 months ago
  • 2 points

What do you mean primary/slave? 2560x1440 is about the max you can get playable on a single 780TI, overclocked. The second is just to have matching monitors. They look fantastic and the screen realestate is great.

  • 56 months ago

You answered my question. I didn't know what the second monitor was for

Great shots of the motherboard!! I'm also looking to buy one... could you please share how is it performing...?

  • 56 months ago
  • 1 point

Using bios f8d. Finally able to overclock ram, stable at 2800MHZ, no blk tuning.

4.4ghz/2800mhz seems good with temps in the 60s' under aida64/prime95 blend.

There is a bit of issues with the onboard creative sound though. front ports work fine, but the back ports are having some static issues... I'm actually rebuiding her(with updated shots) next weekend, new case, new fans, new layout. So i'm wondering if there's some EMI interference.

You should totally consider swapping out the 780Ti for a 990 when it releases. That'd be the card to test out your processor

I'm waiting for GM200 to drop(be it titan black2, 980ti, whatever they call it) and i will SLI two in there.

I looked more closely on one of the photos of the motherboard... Near the socket for the cpu, I noticed a Gigabyte badge... Seems strange to have a Gigabyte badge and logo on an Asus motherboard. Otherwise its a great build. XD

Motherboard was updated from time of pictures. The Gigabyte board had a dead audio chipset and gigabyte would not advance RMA so i purchased the asus.

Did you get that Western Digital 3 TB drive to work on your system? I have that same mobo and HDD and i couldn't get it to work. Could you help me out?

  • 51 months ago

What kind of problem were you having with it? I have a ton of storage on my system and not once have i had an issue with any drives initializing.

  • 51 months ago

Well when ever I plugged it in and ran my system, It wouldn't show up anywhere so i go and check Computer Management and it would show up under Other devices, it would also have a question mark next to it http://gyazo.com/10ef23265c7821d6d0da7f5df0f0a752
