zarx said he'd be me a steam game.


yea I promised if you guys spamed my wall I would transmute myself into a game and release myself on Steam


that's kind of gross. Due it on CGI's wall so it gets into his videocard and it  splodes

My major constrain about the CPU is because i've been reading that some games are heavily CPU-bottlenecked, even at Dual/Triple GTX Titan setup (especially Crysis 3). How high can either the 3930K and the 3930X go in OC? (I'm also adding a liquid cooler, been looking into the one you have, the Corsair H100i).

As for the drivers it isn't really an issue for me. I'm used to shitty drivers because it takes ages for laptop manufacturers to get proper drivers up to speed (can take months, and in some cases years). Even using not-so-legit drivers such as Leshcat unified drivers, it can take you a few months to have a decent driver running. If that period is shorter on a Desktop (mind you, my last desktop was on 2001, which had a Geforce 2 ), it's a win-win for me.

Look, regardless of what you do, you will always have a bottleneck somewhere in your system, even if you have the latest and greatest hardware available, bottlenecks can also change depending on the game you're running and certain parts of a game.
Heck at stock Ivy Bridge quad-cores can beat the Sandy-Bridge-E Hexa-cores in lightly threaded games because Ivy Bridge has a higher IPC which translates into better single threaded performance, run a game that can use 6 Cores though... Nothing can touch Sandy-Bridge-E.

But considering Socket 1155 is a fraction of the price and haswell is around the corner, some people see more value in going with socket 1155 and just replacing the motherboard and processor more often.

Also, my sig is outdated. I've just rebuilt it and upgraded some stuff and threw in a proper water cooling loop and such, but if you're settled on the Corsair H100i, expect around 4.6-4.8ghz if you win the silicon lottery, I actually bought 4x Core i7 3930K's when I first built this system last year untill I found a really good clocker that didn't mind having relatively low voltages.
If you have the right chip, motherboard, cooling... It's not unheard of to get 5ghz, but lets face it, the difference between 4.8ghz and 5ghz is worthless, especially if you have to drive up the voltages to hit that mark. :P
Also get another couple fans to put the Corsair hydro into a push/pull config and a fan controller to go with it.

Just keep in mind though. At 7680x1440. - The GPU is always, I mean always... Going to be the bottlneck, it really doesn't matter if you have an AMD Phenom 2 or a Core i7 3930K @ 5ghz, GPU's will always hold you back.

Where i'm customizing/buying my desktop, the H100i is the best solution they have available for cooling. I'm going to go for a Coolermaster Cosmos 2 Ultra because it has a lot of inbuilt cooling options, on top of the possibility of adding Water cooling, plus up to 3 extra fans (if they're 120mm) and it also has an inbuilt fan controller, so I might be able to touch the 4.8 GHz barrier, we'll see about it. 

About the 7680x1440 resolution, that's why I'm going with the Triple Titans. From the tests i've been reading online (Guru3D and whatnot), Triple GTX Titan hasn't still been found to be a bottleneck yet.



Current PC Build

CPU - i7 8700K 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz turbo) 6 cores OC'd to 5.2 GHz with Watercooling (Hydro Series H110i) | MB - Gigabyte Z370 HD3P ATX | Gigabyte GTX 1080ti Gaming OC BLACK 11G (1657 MHz Boost Core / 11010 MHz Memory) | RAM - Corsair DIMM 32GB DDR4, 2400 MHz | PSU - Corsair CX650M (80+ Bronze) 650W | Audio - Asus Essence STX II 7.1 | Monitor - Samsung U28E590D 4K UHD, Freesync, 1 ms, 60 Hz, 28"

guys check it, even if the game is aparently not that great it's the precedent that counts right?

Thanks . I'll finally be able to play current games at framerates higher than 25/30 XD.

Ok yes I know the more I post in this thread less people care but. This looks neat

When I first saw Consortium, I wasn’t sure what to think. There was fictional science occurring, that much was clear, but to what end? A couple of weeks ago, determined to learn more about this mysterious first-person adventure/RPG, I had the opportunity to play an early build and came away filled with wisdom and excitement. Now that the project is back on Kickstarter, I shall share both. From what I’ve played, Consortium shows itself to be a tight experience, heavy on communication and choice, and riddled with the unexpected. But what exactly is it?

 

Consortium’s first Kickstarter attempt was a long way from reaching its goal when Interdimensional pulled the plug around the mid-way point, recognising the need for a possible change in strategy and a stronger opening fortnight. The project had failed to receive a great deal of attention and that’s at least partly because it looks like something that it isn’t. Superficially, the game resembles a space opera with RPG elements and lots of talking, similar to the Mass Effect series but without the blue aliens, or the Hollywood spit and polish.

The surface doesn’t lie but it does equivocate somewhat. Consortium does put the player in charge of a crew and various alternate future missions, but there is much more emphasis on the relationships between individual crew members, who all resemble human beings, but find variety in their voices and personalities. The writing detours around many of the sci-fi tropes that it seems to be heading straight toward, but all of that is only evident upon playing.
