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.
    Thanks for the reply !
    I think I do have these: G.Skill trident RAM Kit

    So I guess my main question here is,
    how much do you think it will be to 'Optimize' this build.
    And make it 'worth it' I guess you could say..
    Also how would I go about getting the temps under control?
    Should I bring it in and show them all this n see what I can do about it? xP

    Optimization isnt really needed. Its just a lot of money for something that isnt really worth it. As for temps, just make sure your cable management is right, proper airflow, and you are getting good contact with your CPU and heatsink. Other than that, ambient temps will drive a PC temp up, so whatever room its in should be a little cooler unless you are running a very aggressive cooling system.

    It's really hot where I am :/
    And the front room it's in is pretty hot..
    I might bring it in and see what I can get done..
    And possibly show them my posts on the forums to show what people think.

    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?
    What improvements could be made do you think?
    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




    Hahah :P
    Thankyou.
    Any improvements/changes you'd make?




    What can I do to improve it?
    Thankyou




    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?

    Lol Thanks for the comment? O_o

    ---------- Post added at 02:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:11 PM ----------



    How so?
    Im not saying it doesnt in anyway,
    I just dont know much about parts..
    What would you recommend I change on my build?


    ---------- Post added at 02:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:30 PM ----------



    Seems to have quite a few apparently :P
    What temperature is really bad to have?
    And what changes/improvements (If any)
    would you make?
    Another thing you can do is stop using that text coloring, fuckn annoying -.-

    Well higher is generally better, 1600 or 1866mhz RAM should suffice.

    You could of gotten a better GPU, I know Titan is the top of the line, but if you bought 2 Way SLI GTX 760 4GB that would beat a GTX Titan by 8%, imagine 3 Way SLI but still that is a GREAT Build, I am really jealous. That build is pretty much Future Proof xD Nice job tho!

    I plan on buying another Titan,
    I was gonna go Sli, or Tri something else,
    but plan on going Sli Titans in the near future.. Thanks though :3

    Sorry, picture + sign w/ date or never happened.

    My computer is almost exactly the same, except where you went premium, I went price per performance. (and saved 5k )
