I don't even know what the topic is... or the issue, but I can actually see 120 fps studder... it drives me nuts... so do many fluorescent lights.

Tracking moving targets while playing a FPS (first person, not frames per lol) is what gets me the most...

One additional thought, that you probably already considered. You have all those fans, but the PC seems to be stuck in a corner. Do the temps drop much more if you pulled it away from the wall to allow better ingress/egress airflow?

PC Gaming Rig Questions

I've swapped the panels and now have ventilated panels on both sides rather than a clear window. Couldn't get more open unless I took all the panels off. I've directed the fans as best I can for now, each zone has its own controller. Thermals are pretty well under control even overclocked. My most recent firmware update to my motherboard seems to have really done the trick for opening up all my hardware. I come in 5th in the world on the Catzilla benchmarks and 11th in the world for 3D Mark Extreme when compared to similar equipment.

But I'm open to suggestions to anyone, my computer is a bit of an extreme case. I'd love to throw two gtx 1080s or two Titan XPs but I'm stuck with my 3 980ti. My power usage is through the roof with this setup pulling nearly 1200 watts while bench marking and 1000 watts while gaming.

Sounds like you need a separate small room to house that unit. That is a one that has its own cooling system.
I know at work we had a separate cooled room to run our scanning computer. Room was kept at 60 degree max.

Seriously though your air input should be as cool as possible.
* Output(exhaust) air should free flow out and have a place to rise without obstructions.
Also I noticed that the case is under your desk and you seem to have vents on the top of the case. There should be strong exhaust fan(s) on top forcing out the air out of those vents.
A big issue is if the hot air is hitting the desk overhang (fans or not) you are creating a warm thermal area around the case and under the desk that will make your air input air warmer than it should be.
In your situation your air flow leaves absolutely no room for for error. It has to be cool going in and warm going out and away from the computer.
* Also in your situation with as many fans as you have you need to be absolutely certain the air is flowing in only one direction and one direction only. That is you do not have a fan or two actually pushing warm air back into the cooler air.

In my situation I have an I-5 running at 3.4 with 16 gig ram and only a 1 gig video card. Nothing compared or even close to you. But over heating was an issue at one point because of its location.
Mine is under an enclosed desk with the doors kept open 1". I have no intake fans but 3 exhaust fans on the rear of the case. There is also a fan on my Video card and of course the power supply. The rear of the under desk is open allowing the warm air to be pushed away from the computer and rise away from the rear of the desk. There is a 3 inch space to allow for this between the desk and wall.
Now in my case I did add 2 more fans to the rear of the case when I had problems. Also in my case with all 3 fans + the power supply fan, I am sucking a lot of air through the front vents with no need for front intake fans. It all flows in only one direction.

*The other issue you can have with intake fans is if they are pulling in more air than can be exhausted. You will create a very slight pressure increase in the case and a thermal condition causing warm air to be trapped.
I would defiantly make sure you have a strong flow is in one direction.
Also you have have enough exhaust fans on top. You have enough side and bottom vents to accommodate the exhaust fans. Generally the speed of the air coming through those intake vents will increase to compensate for the volume of the exhaust fans. You want that increased air flow speed. Faster the better and you get that with exhaust fans, not necessarily intake fans.
Move the case out from under the desk if needed to eliminate any chance of a thermal condition around that case. You have to get that warm air away from the area under the desk.

Good Luck...............

Hey @Jeepster1, I hadn't considered moving it out from under the desk mostly because it's so heavy. The case prolly weighs in at 100+ pounds and it's so large it wouldn't fit on top of my desk. It's where it is in my apartment because the thermostat is just 15 feet away. I live in an open design apartment. I tried once keeping it in my bedroom, that was a huge mistake. During gaming it would get over 90 degrees in that room. So my living room is the only open air room with direct cooling from my centeral AC.

As far as my fans, I have 8 exhaust fans on the top of the case, 4 are connected directly to my radiator for my CPU since that is liquid cooled and the other 4 are for the case but they are located directly above my video cards. I have 4 intake fans on the very bottom of the case, one intake fan on the rear bottom of my case under the motherboard tray, one intake fan on the rear top of my case above the motherboard tray blowing directly into the airflow path of the CPU radiator. I then have two intake fans on the front of my case. I then have one fan blowing cool air from the front/bottom of the case directly onto the video cards and another two fans DIRECTLY on top of my video cards at the exhaust ports to suck the hot air away and up directly into my exhaust fans. If I could 3D print tunnels to direct my airflow I wonder if that would work, but currently my thermals are very much under control. At least that is for my video cards. My CPU is another matter but it's severely limited by the cooler I have on it and will eventually switch that to a triple or quadruple radiator to help keep that monster cool. When overclocked at 4.5Ghz and testing at 100% it'll reach temps over about 100C which is well beyond the recommended thermal limit of the CPU but within the thermal shutdown limit of the motherboard and the CPU. I don't think I'm doing too bad for a closed loop CPU cooler and air cooled video cards stacked on top of each other.

In addition to everything else, this thing is louder than you can imagine when I run all the fans at 100% fan speed. It's incredibly loud. Prolonged exposure at 100% will leave a buzzing noise in your hearing for about half an hour after I shut it down. But believe it or not, I leave this machine running 24/7. It's my on demand media server, I convert videos with it for uploading to YouTube on occasion and in its spare time I use it with a program called folding@home which allows my computer during idle time to crunch numbers for cancer research.

But I will see if my cords are long enough to relocate the tower next to my desk. It's so large I really need to put it on wheels.

Oh and I might try changing out my fans from airflow fans to SP fans since I've seen a few videos reporting that SP fans are sometimes better in cases like mine.
