Default A rig running FOUR Titans -- all overclocked & watercooled - 04-06-2013, 07:04 | posts: 43

What happens if you buy four GeForce Titans and overclock all of them simultaneously, using water cooling along with a 5.1Ghz+ i7-3960X??

HardForum user Vega just achieved:
3DMark11 benchmark result of 33189 for a true 24/7 gaming system!
It appears this is #3 worldwide, but the higher two scores are liquid-nitrogen cooled, and he says this system runs 24/7 at these specs -- one of the world's fastest true gaming rigs!

. . . .

. .

FOUR Titans... THREE 120Hz LightBoost stroboscopic-backlight monitors (for zero motion blur) in SURROUND...
Capable of Crysis 3 at 120fps@120Hz in 3-monitor surround.
The computer's radiator is the size of a small air conditione....It's bigger than the computer itself!

Vega's thread about his quad GeForce titans and tests:
- HardForum THREAD: Vega's Perfect Motion Clarity 2D Lightboost Titan Portrait Surround Gloss Build
(Formerly three titans, now expanded to four Titans in page 6 of this thread)

Blur Busters blog entry:
- Overclocked Quad Titan SLI on Three 120Hz Monitors

Scales well too!
- YouTube video of Crysis 3 pushing all four GPU's 80-90%..... to an astounding 100-160fps @ ultra settings @ 3340x1920 (darn near 4K!)

Now even I'm jealous!

Good lord that's terrifying. I like it.

It's just a mass of raw computing power hovering above a radiator.

Also jealous.

I'm wondering how mouch this guy is spending on electricity bills per month. But I guess that someone rich enough to buy and build something like this doesn't have to worry about money and bills... Also guessing this guy is still singe, I'm 100% sure in that...

btw rig it's impressive, I must show pictures of it to my wife: "...woman, I'm thinking..." ...but when I think better it's not a good idea, she would kill me for sure

Interesting to all four cards stressed to 95+%, that's very impressive scaling. And I thought SLI usually nearly doesn't scale at all anymore after tri-SLI. Now where's my winning lottery ticket again ?

Just came here to say I'm jelous. Nevertheless great results even though it's an overkill.

Two are more than enough.

Crysis 3 at max in 3d at 120hz/fps.

Also he does make a decent amount from other threads I've read and he does work a good job. He does this as a hobby and whatever he spends on it is up to him and is his business. Who are we to say he's wasting money etc...

It would scale like crap, probably, not to mention the CPU limitation on that engine, hehe

The CryEngine 3 is really great. I don't think you can get this scaling with many other engines.

I'd go with 3 16:10 monitors though. That would be a 3600x1920 res.

I must say, congratulations on your achievement. I'm curious how quickly that rig could catch up to the top people on the Guru of 3D folding team.

I would love to see him turn off the fourth card and then run the tests again, and then turn off the third and run them again. I bet it will show that after 3 GPU's the fourth is really not doing much. Despite what Afterburner is showing.

Still, this is probably nearing a 5,000 system. Man probably looked outside at his battered and bruised car and thought... no I need four GTX Titans instead. LMAO.

Also, why on gods green earth would he ruin the experience of gaming by having the monitors in portrait?? The bezels are even more noticeable as they are closer together this way. Also with so much horsepower... why just 1080p screens? Why not 2560x1440 or 2560x1600?? That would be more impressive.

Still super jealous that I didn't waste about 5-6k on this though :/
