  1. I recently replaced my 3930k rig with a 7980xe build. Also replaced the triple HD monitors with triple 4K. They all work together over the local network to render 3d stuff. Added a few pics of the gradual 5-year process of me building these so you don't assume I bought this all at once. Specs for the new build: -7980xe @ 4.2ghz -128 gb Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz -1tb and 2tb Samsung m.2 -4tb samgung ssd -Rampage Extreme vi -2 x 1080ti Asus Strix -EVGA 1600w Supernova T2 Titanium -Cosmos C700p case Full break down of the 3 pcs here: -7980xe build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/P8xG3C -Bumblebee Wall PC: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/48r6Mp Bumblebee Build log (like 200 pics): https://imgur.com/gallery/Euknr -Megatron: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/YDd6Mp I use these machines for my 3d work http://alexmarks3d.com/
  2. I am currently using a 7980xe (overclocked to 4.2Ghz) workstation for rendering and was wondering if a maximum of 85 degrees is acceptable. Thanks in advance for the insight.
  3. Mixing 4k and 1080 hd monitors

    But will there issues with scaling? Or is that kind of stuff all sorted out?
  4. Mixing 4k and 1080 hd monitors

    Hi, I currently have a 3 monitor setup in 1080. I would like to upgrade to 4k but that is a pretty expensive move to do all at once. Can i upgrade just one to 4k? It is mainly for work and do not game on the 3 monitors at once. Have 2 x 1080ti and use windows 7. Thanks a lot! -Alex
  5. 1080ti and 980 in one pc in WINDOWS 7?

    3ds max and vray! Are you using windows 7?
  6. 1080ti and 980 in one pc in WINDOWS 7?

    Great insight! Thanks Cadence!
  7. 1080ti and 980 in one pc in WINDOWS 7?

    Thanks Cadence! You always give me helpful responses on here :-) I am having some trouble understanding the limitations. For my new rig (with 3 monitors) I got a 1080ti, and have an old 980. I do 3d work so the cuda cores are very helpful. My second question then is does it matter which gpu gets plugged into the monitors? If the 1080ti does the heavy lifting, would I need to have the 980 hooked up to the monitors? Thanks in advance
  8. 1080ti and 980 in one pc in WINDOWS 7?

    What a reliief! Thanks! So you are using two different gpus and are using running windows 7?
  9. Is it possible to have a 1080ti and 980 in one pc in WINDOWS 7? Not in SLI, just to be utilized in my 3d program. I know it is possible but am I limited to only windows 10 because of direct x 12? Thanks!
  10. Corsair LL 140 RGB fans for 280mm radiator?

    This is actually what I'm gonna do too! Hope it works alright
  11. Best 140mm Rad fans regardless of price? Will be mounting them in push/pull on a H115i to cool 7980xe. Thanks!
  12. Corsair LL 140 RGB fans for 280mm radiator?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm running a 7980xe at 4.2GHZ. Is having the LL140 going to make a big difference compared to like a Noctua Industrial?
  13. Will the Corsair LL140 RGB fans be okay for the h115i radiator?
  14. Thanks for the reply. I don't plan to OC the memory though. Is there still a big difference at stock?
  15. Hi, is there a big difference between these? The difference in timings... is that very noticeable in 3d rendering applications?
