More about build fastest make faster
  1. Crap PC..
  2. i think there's a 15000 rpm hd and also need a raid0 card with 8 ssds, and sinse you can overclock more with windows xp 32 bit, does that mean it will make a better max performance system in terms of overall speed?
  3. Quad 580s? Until someone releases 7000x5000 monitor, not much need yet :)
  4. Until someone releases a much stronger CPU no need at all..
  5. At least get dual xeon's...?

    I don't know where you're getting that information from but RAID 0 is meant for two HDs or SSDs that are exactly the same. RAID 1 can handle more drives but they also must be the same. Overclocking is not dependent on the OS, it's dependent on the motherboard and the BIOS.

    I built this and its probably twice as fast.


    Well you didn't build a faster PC, you just built one with the most expensive parts. That doesn't necessarily make it fast. Plus the Quaddro isn't a gaming card - it's a card that's meant for professional workstations.

    First off 1366 is about 3 - 4 years old now. And if you were going to use that in a build you should go with an EVGA Classified SR-2 and dual Xeons.

    And to answer the question it is entirely possible to make a faster one. I give you:

    Since money is no object here:

    Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II - $349.99
    PSU: Silverstone Strider ST1500 1500W - $369.99
    Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Extreme - $469.99
    CPU: 3.3GHz Intel Core i7-3960K Six-Core CPU - $1,069.99
    Cooler: Corsair H100 - $119.99
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw X 64GB (8 x 8GB) PC12800 1600MHz 1.7V Quad Channel For X79 - $699.99
    SSD: 2 x Crucial M4 512GB SSD in RAID 0 - $719.99 each ($1,438.19 total)
    HD: 3 x Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB 7200RPM - $399.97 each ($1,179.98 total)
    Optical: Plextor B950 - $159.99
    Video Card: 3 x Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB - $559.97 each ($1,671.91 total)

    Speakers: Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 - $249.99
    Monitor: 3 x NEC PA-301 30" Widescreen Monitors - $2,479.99 each ($7,842 total)

    Grand Total: $15,674.99

    Yup, I built a PC the price of a Honda Civic there. :lol:

  8. You aren't even close... check this out http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/mimssbits/25987/ 2.5 petaflops.
  9. Yeah, I ditched that P.o.s. after getting lag in a 25man Icc raid,
    lost out on lewt too.......
    :P

  10. Why would you even bother putting HDD's into a "fastest" build...

    PCI based SSD's in a RAID0 are going to be one of the best options.

    You'd seriously take a Level 10 over a Cosmos II? :pt1cable:

    First the Level 10 is not XL-ATX form factor, which is required for the Rampage IV. The Cosmos II takes care of this and has some really excellent cable management features and other cool things like the motorized door.

    I'm not much of a fan of liquid cooling and on a build that costs $16K you certainly don't want any room for failure. :lol:

    Bad thing is graphics cards take up most of the slots, which I'd rather use than a PCI-e SSD which I've read have ridiculous fail rates for the cost. I'd rather stick with mechanical HDs. And besides there's no way you could reach 9TB of storage space with those drives. You could literally fit every game on Steam on that kind of space. :lol:

    It'll probably be at least a decade before we see that on the consumer side, I just built that system with parts you can buy from Newegg now.
  12. Proper level 10 yes, I have plans to mod one someday.....
    Didn't catch the XL plate size hehe
    and if we're going for a fastest system, we're clocking this puppy right? so water or phase cooling is a necessity, at least to my mind
    I am different though :P

    Oh yeah we're overclocking this bad boy. :lol:

    I'm basing this build off the one Maximum PC used in their Dream Machine last year and they were able to get by using an H100 with no problems and took the 2600K way beyond 4.6GHz. I'm betting with this build that the 3960K could easily hit 5.
  14. You guys are brutal to the OP.

    While I agree the OP's system is severely flawed, maybe it would be 'helpful' to recommend vs what was done...

    Yes, larger monitor or 3X ASUS 27". Folks do want 4-WAY GTX 580 3GB (3GB to avoid vRAM bottlenecks on X3 monitors), but most now are using the ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme and a SB-E CPU. Then you need a case to support an EATX and two PSU's. Next large SSD, I prefer the new Corsair Force Series GT and IMO RAID 1 if any RAID for the storage HDD's; don't RAID any consumer WD HDD (they all lack TLER).

    If the OP comes back I'll try to help.

    Q - What total budget?

    I realized I was a bit harsh but I don't think this was meant for any sort of actual build, just fantasy. Like what would you get if you had no budget sort of thing.
  16. I assumed it was a fantasy build too but as Vin diesel said in Pitch black, **Edit, It was in Chronicles of Riddick on crematoria**

    You can't keep up, don't step up hehe

    :P
    Moto
  17. IMO - the same feeling. Most folks don't look often to see what's out there. It's time for the OP to update if the PC fails to meet the requirements or is dead.
  18. You've probably seen more than me on here but every now and again someone goes on cyberpower, clicks all the most expensive options and posts the screenshot on here saying 'Beat this!!!'
    which we invariably do, for less hehe :P

    From The OP though,
    **I just don't have it LOL, just an opinion...

    That's why I don't like Cyberpower - they're like Apple in that they will charge you twice as much for a system that uses technology from a generation ago and still hasn't caught up yet. If someone offers that challenge, I gladly accept! :lol:

    Certainly not bad at all but only why 1 23 monitor? If money is no object go wild with the displays, use your imagination! :lol:

    And the Quaddro is not a gaming card - it's meant for high end rendering and design applications than it is for games.

    And that PSU is a bit underpowered (more of a server PSU).

    Riddick is a really good movie IMO with ~ with vin deisel ~ would've preferred Chuck Norris :3 funny I should mention, I thought chuck norris got famous off of "WALKER TEXAS RANGER" later that day I mention it to him he laughs in my face and tells me that's the reason he is a laughing stock? :lol: . turns out he's famous for his movies and not WALKER TEXAS RANGER!?!? I love that show :( :kaola: :kaola:

    I wish I had $16K to build a PC, but sadly... it will probably remain a fantasy build. :lol:
  28. Building a $16k desktop would be insane the thought of breaking something and costing you thousands of dollars, I'd freak :lol:
  29. Even an SR-2 is rarely over $12K~$14K unless you're dumping in some oddball RAID 0 huge array. $8K~$10K builds or even $5K+ are few and far between for 'Gaming' rigs. 99% are $2K or less.

    Plus if you have $17K to spend you're probably not that concerned about upgrading parts, either. :lol:

  33. If you bought a computer worth 20 thousand buck you"d have to shell out the hole amount at once..You could never buy each part when you can afford it because when you end up buying the last part the first part you bought would be so outdated..tell you i made that mistake i built a 5000 dollar rig buy the time i got all my parts together my video card and my Cpu was outdated so i lost money...They say the worst investments are vehicles & highend computers soon as you take them off the lot the price drops almost 50% and again after i built my first computer i felt like i should have just bought a laptop

    I can see why this rig is so high priced i would never buy any computer part from Amazon the most expensive place in the world for Pc parts. A good example your Motherboard for $479.00 and i found the very same one for $280.00 and if i went through your list im almost positive i can trim down your price by a few thousand maybe more,being realistic this is just a fiction rig and i cant see any idiot forking out this much or being a idiot to spent the time to put this list together...
  37. make a better one then we will see whos the idiot.
  38. This thread is 4 years old. Please do not revive old threads - they often contain out of date information, and clutter up the recent threads with new questions.

    All i need to be faster then your dream Pc is any i7 with any $200 dollar motherboard running ram drive. Why do you waste your time with these old threads, if your so 5 years ago building dream computer why not start your own fantasy thread and get laughed out of town...
  40. This is not my dream PC.i would never use a Xeon in a Gaming build.Xeons are CRAPPY for that.I just made something that was expensive.
  41. Stop Reviving this thread! And Xeons are not crappy for gaming - some are just i7s without iGPUs and the rest just have wasted potential due to their multiple cores.

    If you dont want people to stop reviving old posts why dont you get the post removed, this site is just filled with old posts and if you can answer to any of them why have the site at all. Plus who are you to tell people to stop posting on old post...so what im trying to say is (Get lost)
  43. Threads aren't removed so that people who have similar questions can refer them and find them through search. This thread interests no one anymore as it is outdated and the recent posts do not contribute anything extra, so there is no use posting new replies to it.
