Style + Beast = Styeast
This is very long build. I had a lot of problems with the Asus X99 AII motherboard. It's been more than half a year after I purchased everything. Asus really wasted a lot of my time on sending the mb back and forth for more than 5 times. Luckily, MSI works perfectly. This worked on the first try. However, the startup is still a bit slow. But hey, this works. Great job MSI.
This will be the main setup for CG work; hence, I got the quadro card and the xeon processor. FYI, it you guys are into rendering for 3D content, CPU should be the main focus. Some renderers don't use GPU. I also compared the rendering with CPU and GPU. They are the same.
The main cost I was able to cut on the market value are the cpu, gpu, and the Intel SSD. I bought the CPU used from ebay. This isn't the entirely legit version, but it really works well with the 18 core. The model number is not shown, instead it shows 0000. I asked the seller. The seller told me that it's an engineering sample. As for the GPU, I got the Nvidia M6000 not the PNY version. I couldn't find it in PCpartpicker. I bought this new from a guy on Craigslist. This was a huge risk. I made sure to bring it into a computer store to check it. It was legit, and the guy was nice. Intel SSD was from a guy I found on ebay. This was a bit under the market value. That's why it's $800.
I waited for a long time not only because of the Asus mb, but also I waited for corsair rgb fans and the In Win 805 Infinity. I wanted to make the entire setup RGB. These fans look nice; however, they are kind of loud, and the plastic feels a bit cheap. If you turn the the fan speed to a minimum, they are quiet enough for me. The CPU temperature is really low with the NZXT liquid cooler.
Everything here is new except for the CPU. I am glad that I was able to cut the cost to less than $5000.
