Finally all complete. Running nice and cool.
You're right it does look fancy :P
The 650 Ti just seems a bit unfitting though haha +1
I do not need GFX processing power so this is more than enough for me. :)
I don't play games so instead I invested on ram and SSD :)
For a DAW, I'm surprised to see there isn't a sound card.
Sound cards don't work. He will have a separate DAC or sound board. Watch this for more info:
I wasn't aware of that. Thanks for sharing.
No problem :) I like your build BTW.
Thanks, I just finished it like 2 weeks ago.
I have my old Edirol FA-101 connected via TI chipset PCI-E firewire card.
Planing to buy a RME but later. I have already spent a fortune need some time to save some money :)
Very nice ++1
Really awesome build. It's awesome to see someone who doesn't use a Mac for their DAW. :/ +1
Thanks, I actually was thinking to switch to MAC but instead built this baby :)
I like it! Looks good and I hope you're enjoying it.
I have a question though.
How in the world did you get the windowed version of the 500R? I can never find it on newegg or amazon.. Is it custom?
I did custom work on it. I cut the boarder lips which holds the mesh with hand engraver tool with metal cutter disc. I grabbed the plexy glass from a local glass shop. You can find it in any home supply stores. Then I used 3M double sided tape to hold the glass. The edging rubber is the trick. I found it in auto market but you can find it on ebay. It will take maximum 1hr of work to finish the job. The total cost will be around 20-30$.
Sounds confusing. I'm 15 so I don't know much about appliances and how to do those things, but thanks for telling me nonetheless. Always good to learn something new :)
There are many ways you can learn how to do it on the net. Look for videos about mods. If you want to do it and if you can get the necessary stuff I would be glad to help.
The cutting is a little hard for beginners. So I recommend to seek for a professional or a metal workshop.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7twrE1JxD4E on this video (00:48sec) you can see the uncut sides. and the rest is pretty DIY simple.
Here are the stuff you need
1- 25x33cm acrylic glass 4mm or 5mm thick
2- 3M VHB Heavy Duty Mounting Tape
3- U Channel EPDM Rubber Edge Trim
That's real nice of you and thanks for the info but I'm not necessarily going for this case, I was just wondering how you got a windowed model. If I do need help with modding or things along the line of that in the future, I'll be sure to talk to you though.
Wtf why zotaic there a horrible brand of gpu
No need for a fancy-expensive gfx card for Audio Work Station. I don't play games or do graphics rendering so this is good enough for me.
Good choice of specs, but the GPU choice just leaves me saying,
"WTF". You could of at least gone with a 760 for an extra 50-70 dollars, considering the fact that you spent a good sum on the hardware. What are you using the build for?
Judging from the name, I'd say it's being used as a Digital Audio Workstation.
Didn't catch that, thank you. :)
What is this system used for? Why do you have/need and i7? Why do you have 32Gb of RAM? Most of all, why do you have a crappy graphics card to go with all of that expensive hardware? This is why you need a description, otherwise you're going to be questioning why you will have so many down-votes or not enough up-votes. Although a clean build, you need to state why you have everything. -1
The title says it's a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) So he'll be using it for recording music. If he's not going to be gaming on it, the 650 is more than fine.
A description would be nice though.
It's a DAW. That should answer every last one of your silly questions.
Sorry. I've never heard of a DAW before and thought it meant something else in the title. Still should have clarified in the description.
Sound processing doesn't require extreme GPU's :)
But don't you think it would be better to squeeze it all of a 2k computer? I mean something where you can work and play
