PC BUILD - Octane & C4D

Hi,

I'm planning to build a pc for Cinema 4D & Octane render. My intention is to make mostly material for print (posters, collages,..)
I went to the local store, and they made a pc build selection:

- Fractal Design Define R5 Black Case
- ASUS MAXIMUS VIII RANGER, socket 1151 moederbord (RAID, Gb-LAN, Sound, ATX)
- G.Skill D432GB 3200-16-18-18 Ripjaws V K4 GSK memory
- EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti HYBRID (06G-P4-1996-KR), graphic card (DVI, HDMI, 3x DisplayPort, SLI)
- Western Digital Black, 2 TB Harde schijf (SATA 600, WD2003FZEX, AF)
- Samsung 850 EVO, 250 GB SSD (Zwart, MZ-75E250B/EU, 3D V-NAND, TLC, TRIM, AES)
- Corsair RM1000 PSU
- Microsoft Windows 8.1, Software (Nederlands, 32-bit)
- Intel® TS13X Liquid Cooling Solution (PWM-aansluiting)
- Intel® Core i7-6700K, 4,0 GHz (4,2 GHz Turbo Boost) socket 1151 processor (FC-LGA4, "Skylake")
--Total: 2.600 euro

For the monitor I was thinking about the Dell Ultrasharp U2515H (http://be.hardware.info/productinfo/274 ... arp-u2515h)
Is this a good PC build? Or are there any other options?

thanks in advance,
Tim

hi there!

it seems to be nice well rounded build. possibility to upgrade up to 3 GPUs i nthe future is nice option to have & You're prepared to this! IGPu migh come handy as well if render Load on 980Ti will be too much to handle Your UI smooth =)

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the feedback. What do you mean with IGPu? Is it software related?
And what's the difference between this card, the GTX 980 Ti, € 769 (https://www.alternate.be/EVGA/GeForce-G ... ent=search) and this, the GTX 980 Ti Hybrid, € 879? (https://www.alternate.be/EVGA/GeForce-G ... P4-1996-KR)-Grafische-kaart/html/product/1207921?event=search)

Why buy windows 8.1 when Windows 10 has been out for awhile and is stable?

hi Tim, the difference is huge. First of all ACX cooler equiped cards better not be placed site by side without extra gaps - this cooler emits heat back into the case & if cards does not have extra space between it's hard for them to get rid of it & clockspeeds might go down due to thermall throttling what leads to lost performance =) pluss Your multi GPU rig would run like 85C all the time under load..

hybrid cards on the other hand are diffferent beast =) fan on the card will blow the air thrue the card & emit the heat from the case, effectivelly cooling VRAM & VRMS..Attached AIO unit will take the heat out of the core (main chip that does those calculatios & if You place rad in exaust it would throw the the heat out too =) overall card is a bit more silent & operates between 40-50 under full load =)

by no means those are perfect, nor any of it is bad. You just need to pick them accordingly, based on Your needs & the way (environment) You are going to use any of those. hope that helps.

Sorry but what if we just use the reference stock cooler and not use water cooling solution? Because I'm planing to build my desktop workstation however in my state, no one does or know water cooling for GPU/CPU.
