Should I consider:
Cooler Master Nepton 140XL
NZXT Kraken X60
I believe CM cooler is great for the buck but I'm wary of fan noise. Is that really too high on loads? I'm in the process of finalizing parts for a high-end build based on i7-4790K and Asus Pro Wifi board.
What is your inputs in this regard? Thank you
Neither in this Haswell-E case. It's quite heavy Design, Modeling and Simulation business tasks with multiple applications run on three displays, some heavy computational apps, and of course there will be VMs on Windows host. Each build must address those requirements without any hiccups.
I use Xeon processors on Asus WS boards since 2011 but those machines doing their jobs. Also, in 2012 I built a Xeon/Tesla Hybrid cluster for couple of purposes. I'm pondering should I drop 5960X CPU and go in favor of new Xeons. I need three extreme builds to cater new demands. I don't mind price factor (if justified from ROI point), hence my thoughts on K6000/K5200 + Tesla K40 solution. Else, I'll go with Titan Blacks once I get numbers close enough.
What about K5200? I'm wondering on K6000/K5200 with Tesla.
If I'm not convinced on price justification I'll go with GTX Titan Blacks. What do you reckon, if you don't mind sharing?
I inferred, you can still return that in favor of VG248QE. You won't regret this product for a few days of wait...enjoy your build.
PNY folks absolutely correct. I never mix them both. Here's a latest build in progress - few parts yet to finalize...have to wait for little more time on CPU (5960X or 5930K confusion, cards (price and compute factors), evaluating WD Red Pro based NAS and making it 100% green (Solar power source for 3 builds or 3000W uninterrupted power output using 15+ panels):
2x EVGA GeForce GTX Titan Black 6GB Superclocked (2x $1019.99)
PNY Quadro K6000 + Nvidia Tesla K40 (most likely choice)
Asus VX248H 24.0" ($187.58) is more used by multimedia folks (VividPixel design). I know it's a 1ms product. Yet you should've bought Asus VG248QE 24.0" ($264.99) because it's a proper Gaming product with 1 ms, 144 Hz, G-Sync, 3D support and DisplayPort (if you like). I reckon spending extra ~$80 dough is great consider that EVGA high-end card.
Just why do you care? Can't you be happy for others?
AX860i PSU isn't enough for your hardware. Never cross 60% load on PSU to get best power delivery performance out of it.
Are you not living in the US? You could've saved a lot on that processor.
I'm quite confused with the mixed reviews of Haswell-E processor. I'm stuck on this one. Anyway, does anyone think 5960X sounds better at $899 point? Thank you
Still figuring out this site, I get it now. My apologies.
Well, Titan Black is a super card comparable to some of my Quadro cards. Never mind, just presumed you're into heavy encoding etc. Asus monitors are great. IPS products are cool but not suitable for gaming if you're into it (mostly). I use both types, but not much into gaming.
I hope you're having a memorable time with your build.
My first comment on this site. I thought this might serve even better/longer:
1) Asus Maximus VII Hero
2) Corsair 2400 Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB)
3) SanDisk 480GB SSD
4) Western Digital Black 4TB 7200RPM
5) Corsair A760i PSU
6) EVGA Nvidia GTX Titan Black (not much diff. between MSI 780Ti card)
7) Intel Core i7-4790K (similar price; bit better performance)
8) Asus 27" ROG SWIFT PG278Q
