    Titan.
    You bought a titan when for like $200 more you get 2 780's and in effect double performance. Lol.

    Yeah i've been told that by a couple friends,
    I somewhat regret not doing dual 790's or 690's or something,
    but I do plan on going dual Titans.. If that'd make any 'Better' difference, I don't know..




    It was pretty cheap, but I added a lot of stuff onto the 'Bill' ..
    Like some Razor Gear, Corsair, and Asus gear.. The sound system alone was $210(CAD)
    I also paid them to put it together for me as they're professionals.
    And everything had a 4-5 Year Warranty/Labor coverage. That was expensive :s




    would over clocking make that better?
    And i'm worried about ruining something if I try over clocking..
    Also most of the price was increased because of accessories and warranty/labor (4-5 Years)




    Should help me out with over clocking
    I'm worried i'll ruin something if I try..
    I don't even really know how..
    But thanks :3 I love it.





    Also guys I was thinking about buying this:

    NZXT HUE Controller, Panel - Newegg.com

    Good Idea? Yes? No?
    Yes u could buy it.

    Dat CAS latency. Also dem temps. Its hot as shit here and my temps barely ever peak over 35C. And with that money, the computer should be topping out way more performance. Closed LC loop. Wasting money on a Titan. Not even an IPS monitor. Oh fuck is that a razer headset? With $6500 he could have gotten waaay more out of this.

    Would over-clocking it be better? And what improvements could be made?

    If you look into my post, I mentioned that i'm unsure of what the best combinations and whatnot would be.. And that I didn't actually build it myself.
    Also, i'm planning on either going Dual titans, or Quad something else (780's?)
    What improvements could be made do you think?

    What if I Over-Clocked, or got dual Titans, or something else?

    Again, I dont know too much about building a computer, and this is my first, so of course
    there will be a few faults I guess :s

    At the risk of sounding like an idiot, CAS latency?
    Also it's pretty hot in my house, no AC yet..
    And I haven't overclocked it yet if that'd make a difference,
    and what if I got dual Titans?


    Also at the risk of seeming like an idiot,
    I didnt know about IPS n whatnot,
    I honestly wasn't too worried about a craaazy monitor..


    What improvements would you make?
    And also, what could I do to make it better?
    Would over-clocking be recommended?

    What improvements would you make?

    Would over-clocking be recommended?
    [COLOR="Silver"]
    Improvements? Unfortunately the only one I can suggest is getting better RAM. What you should have done is put a little more thought into a computer, or at least not bought such expensive parts just to have "moar powar". It would be a real waste to redo that computer after you already bought everything.

    CAS latency, which is kinda more important than the clock speed (but 1200Mhz in a PC like that is laughable, 1333 is the bare minimum for high tier computers, 1600-2000 is the better range) is basically the time it takes between when the computer tells the RAM it needs something, and the point where it actually serves it up. The lower the better. Explaining the specifics of it can get tricky when dealing with what the cycles are vs how the speed effects it, but to keep it simple do this.

    Take your CAS, and divide it by your speed.

    10/1200 = 0.0083

    Thats the time it takes for your PC to get stuff from the RAM. If you were to bump up the speed of the RAM to 1333 you would get a faster time because

    10/1333 = 0.0075

    Lower time equals faster speed. But dont be tricked by faster clock speeds being faster. A 2000Mhz kit with a higher CAS can be beaten by a 1600 kit with lower CAS latencies. Finding the balance between speed and CAS is where you will find your higher performing RAM kits. For you X79 board, Id go for one of these kits:
    Mushkin 32GB 1600 8-8-8-24 timings
    G.Skill Trident X 1600 7-8-8-24
    Im sure there is other ones but I just did a quick search on newegg.

    Stay away from dual Titans unless you just want to throw money away for a tiny bit of bragging rights. You can pick up two 7970 Ghz cards and save a good bit of money, or go tri or quad crossfire with the 7970's and beat out a SLI Titan. The titans are largely just fluff compared to the love they get. You can get more performance out of other cards if you do it right.

    IPS monitors are not hard to find at all, and only slightly more expensive depending on your size and OMA. Sub-24" and you can find them for $200-300 easily. They only get really pricy when you hit bigger sizes like 27-32". The quality difference is insane though. Well worth the extra you will pay. Check out Dell's website for them as Dell's IPS monitors and monitors in general are nice, and they have constant deals on them. Just pick one you like, bookmark it, and wait for it to eventually go on sale. For example, heres the one Im using and have loved it since I opened the box.

    And if you can ever get those temps under control, I would recommend bumping up your CPU. Having all that money in something like that and at least not bumping it up just seems so casual. You dont need to, but you really could.

    Its not really a bad build at all, but it just seems ill thought out. Like you just focused on spending money, and not putting it to its full use, which is what at a core, the enthusiast $4000+ computers are trying to do. No reason at all to spend so much if your not pushing that extra power around. Otherwise, a sub $1500 could do pretty much anything that one can at almost no visual difference. Unless you are running on more than 2 monitors though.
