Custom built CAD, editing, streaming and gaming workhorse.
This crazy project all started with a very specific case I found for sale locally. One of the very limited Murdermod Silverstone TJ-07s originally sold by Charles Harwood, creator of the XForma Brand. I decided that this very limited case was deserving of a very high end build and things started to snowball from there.
This build was a long term project so some of the individual part choices might not seem that logical out of context. I found many deals along the way to try my best to keep costs down. In the end it was still really expensive but it was a less bitter pill to swallow since it was paid for over a longer time span. I would have bought SLI 980Ti cards had they been available at the time. I have always built systems to the best price to performance and this time I had some income to spare and decided to go a bit crazy.
I did all the cable sleeving myself with MDPC sleeve and spent a lot of time making the build look as clean as possible. I would like to add the GPUs to the loop in the future but its hard to justify the cost since these cards barely handle 4k. Future plans would be to replace them with watercooled 980Tis or the next gen Pascal cards.
Pictures show the system with internal mechanical drives and 4 memory slots filled. I have since moved the mechanical drives to a USB3.0 enclosure and added 16 more GB of ram to fill all the slots.
Future plans would be to add the GPUs (probably not the 980s) the loop and switch to a hard piping. Oh, and flipping the inverted logos on the board and GPUs.
