"For fun" 10k Dream Build - Opinions?

So, decided a couple nights ago to make a "dream build" for fun and see how much it would cost to build such a computer ... well my expectations are not that far from reality.

Around 10k
(I know many of you hate Razer atm because of the Synapse 2.0 spy stuff, but I just chose Razer cause I like the esteatics of their stuff (I know, superficial)).
Please tell me what you think and if you would improve on anything (price is not a problem, since I will probably never have the money to buy it and pay rent / food and other more important / vital things)

No full watercooling?

I find the 690's so damn sexy that it would be sad to put a waterblock on them ... xD
And making a loop that only goes to the CPU then back is also kinda sad.
So no, even thought it would look really nice (not to mention the reduced temps)

What's your opinion on the build ?

i would change the motherboard to the ASRock X79 Extreme 11  630€


also, 27" monitors for god sake! if we are dreaming at least lets dream properly! 27" 3D monitors! 3 times!  479€ x3


its a very good build but as much as i like the 690 it (only) has 4GB of GDDR5 (8GB for two of them) i would change that to 4 680's with 4GB each for a tremendous total of 16GB of GDDR5 (which is basicly overkill) 

so gainward GTX680 Phantom 4GB 569€ x4


then i would change the watercooling to either a full building kit or the NZXT one that will soon be available. its more expensive and more performance (i guess)

the rest its pretty good, its good to dream sometimes! (and congratulation to anyone who has the money to build that)



Well yeah, dreaming is good ^^

I might attempt to build that computer next year ... (black money (not sure how it's called in english, I am french after all).

The Monitors are really nice, but I prefer the BenQ for the "Black Equaliser".
About the GFX (4x 680), there isn't really any point in going for that, is there ? It's a dream yeah ... but talk about power usage and the heat output !! Plus I am just too damn attracted to those smexy 690's xD

And would 4x 690 not be better ?

The Motherbord looks really good !
I need to check it out more in detail.

So there is no bottleneck ? Cool ^^

Would also love to have Logan's opinion on the build <3

I'll post one when I get get home and after I finish the important builds first

Sure, help those who really need it ^^
This is more of a wicket silly I wipe my ass with money Build.

But with all the extra work I do on the week ends, I think I should be able to build it witin a year (I'm a plasterer ...)

When you have time, drop an opinion ^^

Expext 32 threads muwahaha

donc je ne suis pas le seul francais ici !

j'ai aussi l'intention de construire un pc de très haute qualité, mais je voudrais mettre environ 4 a 5000€ donc pas de double 690 pour moi

parcontre j'aime beaucoup le boitier cooler master HAF X

quel site utilise-tu pour toutes tes pièces? je trouve que LDLC.com est bien complet dans la matière et livre extrèmement vite.


if english people dont get that just use google trad....

Even if I won a hundred mill, I dont think I would build that.. :D but the thought is nice..

and I would deff not go with that case eventhough its beautiful! would go with something like a Silverstone TJ11 or maybe some of the custom watercooling cases.. and then I would watercool everything, with lots of lights, pumps and reservoirs.. :)

your build looks nice.. excepts for the razer stuff. :D and i would probably go for 3 or 4 680s insted and 

I would get a Caselabs STH10 and get a full custom watercooling loop in there with 2-3 480mm rads for sure, 64GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum 2800mhz ram, and 30 inch top of the line DELL monitors.

I'd need about 20K more for my real dream computer, sure that's more than a car but I don't drive

I'll post my upgrades if I had more than 10K here in a minute

Upgrades... I know kung-Fu?

only 64? not 128? and for that price, you have someone MAKE YOU a case....
