RE: New Gaming PC
Wow, that's beautiful! I've seen that case recommended a lot, looks like fun to work with.

I think this is one of few pictures where the desk is as clean as the PC. Smile

Have you tried overclocking yet? What's the noise level's like? I'd imagine it's pretty silent with that setup.

That's a lot of horse power too! I'm jelly! What monitor are you using? It seems like those cards would be going to waste without a crazy high-res or 3-monitor setup.

Thank you! I try to keep my work/gaming space and tower neat and organized haha.

I have not tried over clocking yet, i know it sounds insane, though i have been more focused on tweaking my graphics cards and buying a new monitor. The computer is quite loud though, i have a total of 11 fans all running at nearly 2000+ RPM, but my speakers while playing games tune that out. The cpu/ graphics cards / board all run very very cool, which was entirely main focus.

The monitor is a MX279H, im adding an additional widescreen 29" (MX299Q) later in december.

RE: New Gaming PC
It's pretty simple to overclock these days. You already have the cooling for it. Just crank the multiplier up a notch, test, and repeat until something breaks. Honestly, with those specs and that monitor, you don't have a reason to overclock, except for fun.

As far as the noise, maybe consider a fan controller? If you're not overclocking, you can definitely turn those fans down to lower the noise. If they're plugged directly into the MOBO, you may be able to turn them down from the BIOS. Since you have a lot of spare horsepower for now, you can probably set the H100i to "Quiet Mode". The 780 GPUs should also let you choose a noise limit, and down-clock if they start to go over it. I'm guessing the GPU fans are probably not nearly as loud as the H100i and case fans though.

By the way, which case fans are those? I was considering purchasing the "quiet" edition of those Corsair fans for my rig, but if they're loud...that defeats the purpose.

As for your monitor, its resolution seems like a waste for a 2 GTX 780s! They could easily handle MUCH higher resolutions, even a 4k monitor. You can also look into 120hz (higher refresh) monitors, or even a multi-monitor, Surround setup. You could just purchase 2 additional MX279H's and call it a day! Of course it's your rig, but using that monitor is like buying a Mustang, putting $20,000 into performance upgrades, and then giving it to your Grandma just to drive to the grocery store and back.

Here's my surround (and that's just a 560 SLI!). Granted the desk isn't as tidy Smile
