since I am weak I decided to build myself something so satisfying that I would not want to change it for some time

so far I kept failing...
so this time no excuses...

something epic is coming and I will hide it under my desk so I could finally play some games...

at this moment I am waiting only for 2 pieces of this puzzle:
1 - monoblock that should arrive Monday
2 - Intel 900P PCIe drive that should arrive before December

What I have now I captured below on some pictures. I hope you will like this build as much as I do.

More will come later...

For now enjoy this:

Vertically


Horizontally


Star of the show


I am sure that "the one" is somewhere out there...

Who games on a 18 core processor when a quad more than enough.

A quad is enough but I have found the 3930k to offer a smoother experience than the 3820 at the same clock speeds. It could be something as simple as there being more L3 cache and hit rates being a little higher than they would otherwise but, there are benefits to having more than 4 cores. I'll definitely concede that 18 cores is overkill but, I don't think 6 or even 8 cores nowadays is overkill.

It can also be as simple as test benchmarks. They are clean systems, OS+Game+GPU drivers bare minimal. They will never take into account what an individual installs in their system from various hardware & drivers to software combinations.

My old 3930k is still running strong in a secondary machine.

Well he has SLI 1080TI so I would guess he plays games. To be fair, its only $700 more to get 18 cores vs the 10 cores on the 7900x.

I am wondering why someone purchased a shed load of CPUs which will sit inside a tower? What is the point of an average joe binning processors for 24/7 operation, I have no idea (cough* silicon lottery cough*). Anyhoo, looks like an ultimate overkill 4K build... enjoy! :)

PS - if you want to learn benchmarking and get your worth out of that hardware, LMK. ;)

I dont think its tolerance, I think its more of a advertisement for these companies.
ASUS supports only full ASUS builds, the do not tolerate competitors products. If a there mb and vga are different brands ASUS will 99% show you middle finger...

EVGA has no marketing in EU, at least I never heard of build sponsored by EVGA so it is a no also...
And believe me, I wanted to make it full EVGA build as I would do a lot for FTW-K mobo but how long can you wait...
Also for ASUS there is a monoblock and that will help with VRMs

this is not an advertisement for these companies. these products are the very best in my opinion and as long as there is nothing best to upgrade i shall not upgrade

Just want to share my joy and passion with few friendly souls...

Well damn!!!! That is gonna be a one hell of a beast!

What's your use for the 18 core? Pls let it be some actual use, not just epen piss contest.
well yes, its a pissing contest
also I will test few to pick the best and check how lucky I am with these chips

also lets be true to each other, I think that that 4,8 is almost impossible and Ill pop a champagne if I get a stable 4,7GHz
on the other hand the WR with single card is made on 7980XE @ 4,5GHz so...

lets just have some fun with it :D

He means he'll help you tweak and benchmark that.. I can't call it anything but a shameful money pit of a rig. Sorry, there is no real purpose for something like that unless you're mapping the DNA of every plant in the world.

He can also get one pre-selected and liquid metaled. I agree picking yourself is a bit rich.


Are you gonna go liquid metal OP?



Also, i can see OP upgrade next year this time to a pair of Volta based xx80Ti cards. So your title would be a lie!

in my experience LM on 7920X-80XE is no good
with 7900X I gained a lot, like 15'C but after deliding 7920X I gained +3'C and on some cores I lost 4'C so not goint to try it this time :)
also LM oxidizes and I really want to rest for a few months with this build

I remember the 12C to 18C Skylake-X has the HCC version of silicon versus the LCC silicon 7800X~7900X I9? A larger surface area would probably make cooling a lot easier without using LM.

Also will you be getting Optane? and Possibly a Pimax 8K VR HMD? Your rig would be awesome for VR.

Doesnt that 18 core processor at 4.5ghz or higher suck up more than 500watts at the wall. You have 1080ti in sli and a 1000w power supply. I dont know but you might need a higher rated power supply.

ye ye i know

at 4,6ghz it should take up to 490W under full load

2x Ti under full load 2x250W but...

thanks to your software masters and optimization that will never happen at the same time

Combined test on 3DMark should take me for about ~700W, OCCT for ~900W
and I know that this PSU can deliver up to 1200W easily

ling term I might change for 1600W T2 - we will have to wait and see if this PSU will be enough for Witcher 3 at 1440p and 144Hz

So you sent $20k in processors but didnt send the extra 200-$300 for the correct power supply.

You'll return them????????!! How is that ethical? Wow. What a monumental waste of time and cash when you could have just went to silicon lottery and bought ONE. Oh well.
To say the least... that's 20,000 USD right there. I suspect if you have the money to spend 20k on CPUs to find just one, that it's probably not ethics that has enabled you to do it. That's a ton of money just to try and find a golden CPU.
