She has not had a single issue. I don't think upgrading grandma is necessary at this point. Even with prices as they are.
I bought countertops at Ikea. Cut them to the lengths I needed and attached desk legs from Ikea.
OMG...that controller cable is all I can see now! Just kidding. Looks really good! Whatever changes you may consider please keep them minimalist. That case is super easy to build in and makes just about anything look good but it can also have a way of pointing out certain things and highlighting the crap out of them. If it runs well, I say keep it the way it is. I say it all the time. I say that...but don't actually do that. :/
Well, that runs as tight as it's put together. Great job!
Looks good. Nice job!
Nice job! My first thought was that it had an R2D2 vibe.
I have been instructed to thank you for your comment. I am glad she didn't get the Cougar Conquer case she was eyeballing.
Oh, she also got the GPU open box at Frye's. It was priced higher than that but she literally walked to the customer service desk and asked to pay that price. They agreed.
I can tell you she bought the O11D at a local auction, brand new with plastic still on it for $25. The AIO she got from me and I paid around $35 for it as an open box. You can add that to the total cost if you like. But I did notice the price for the RAM is about $20 more than she paid so you would have to subtract that. Oh, the LL120 fans would have a price of $35 total for all of them but she also got them at auction with a Corsair case that was damaged. So I suppose I could add that $20 back in. If you look hard enough and spend enough time you can find good deals. That what she did.
I see people are still working on your PC. When will it be finished? :) Looks great, man!
I was just thinking it would neat if the top monitor had a Deathstar rotating or charging up to fire at the PC's below. I already commented on how amazing this setup is. I just cant help feeling like my personal info and life history could be scrolling across one of your screens and you observe the universe from your desk chair. :)
The parts list seems more of a "Budget PLUS" build to me. But you look like you worked hard on it and made some very good part selections. As with the comments above... please add more pics when you can. Maybe a few shots of the PC working instead of you working on it :) Otherwise it looks good so far!
Wow, this looks amazing! So simple and minimal that it would not look right with anything more. Great Job!
Question...with the work you do are there plans for a PCIe Gen4 NVMe?
Looks really nice! Also, nice work on cable management. I know what you mean about cables and ITX! Otherwise it seems spec'd out well for your use case.
Looks very nice (and clean) from what I can see. How are the temps? I did a build in an H500 and it struggled for good air flow.
Looks great for a first time build. I would suggest maybe tucking in the cables at the bottom for cosmetic reasons and maybe add another fan to the front for the same reason depending on your temps. Also, when you do add another drive maybe go the extra $10 and get an NVMe. Doesnt have to be Gen4 unless you need that but it's nice not needing additional cabling and you would get a little speed boost over an SSD. Maybe consider some cable extensions if you ever want to throw a bit of color flair into the case. Again, Nice job!
Looks really good.
That makes sense. I will share with you my philosophy, never wait to upgrade because you have to do it because you want to. So if that 3950x looks good go for it. Unless you're short on cash after purchasing those bobble heads. ;)
First, WOW, that's a lot of computering. Second, it all looks amazing!
Last, why not get a higher core count cpu and dedicate some cores for streaming/trading and the rest for gaming? My guess is cuz you could. That's my go to response.
Wow, thank you!
It's NVlink. But it will always be SLI to me.
Sure, go ahead. Thanks!
Well that's a beast of a streamer. The cable management made my eye twitch tho. But hey...wow!
Pfff, yeah. It can even run Minecraft!
Faster sustained speed. I often move some 4k videos or batches of large photos and it helps. But honestly I think for everyday they are both great drives. I think I read something about Samsung putting out an Evo Plus at 2TB. If that's for real and it reviews well I may add that to this PC.
I don't know... Checkout @Chadchops Parvum build.
It took me 20+ years to be able to do that. When I started I had budgets of around $200 and made that work. Besides, I see plenty of builds with less money thrown at them that look totally awesome. Yours to point one out.
Haha...I will take it where I can get it! Thanks!!
It's still on the wall. You can see it in one of the pics. I used the GPU's from it in this build. I put a 2080 I got cheap in the wall PC.
Man, thats nice! I like the EK no maintenance black tubing. Also like your use of loop accessories, gives a bit of character to the monochromatic.
At first glance I thought it was 3D printer, LOL! Awesome work!!
I know what you mean. The struggle is real. I have come to the point where if I am okay with the temps I am getting that's good for me. I don't have to have the absolute lowest temp possible at the cost of some aesthetics. Nothing wrong with a good balance.
They are a hair bigger than 7/16"
Three intake fans and six exhausting. Seems like the cool air in from the bottom goes through the GPU and the leftover warm air is going out the other six fans. Does it get enough fresh air to cool everything well?
Otherwise it looks awesome!
Really nice job! Looks awesome!!
I used these...
Set them individually.
Looks really good from the one photo. One suggestion, don't use the same cable for both GPU power connections. The PSU you're using should have another cable that can be run from the power supply to the second power connector. Otherwise, nice job!
It works for the looks. That's why I put it in that build. Good price and it matched.
It was ok for the price. Did the job. But others of same size I have used have performed better.
