Is there a plan to incorporate network components like Access Points, Routers, Switches...etc in the future?

Edit: Also NAS, Raid cards

FunnyRock's Completed Build: SNOWSTORM - 4 Years of Craigslist

Erolian 2 points 43 months ago

If I were to walk into your room and saw your machine, I will not be able to guess you got all those parts off craigslist and Fry's electronics. Absolutely fantastic build for cheap!

splatch's Completed Build: (Ncase M1) Highest PSI (power/sq. inch): x99 mini-ITX / 5930K / Titan X

Erolian 1 point 43 months ago

This reminds me of Linus's 18-core Xeon Titan X miniITX build, albeit a lot more practical and well planned. Great job!

JVM requires a lot more hardware prowess than most people realize, one would assume a game with only large blocky graphics wouldn't take up more system resources, but the truth is Minecraft doesn't run on Windows, it runs on a Java Virtual Machine that then runs on Windows.

Not the OP, but that's where the back-plate comes in; it gives the GPU PCB structural integrity it clearly lacks.

yh8404's Completed Build: Mining Rig Conversion

2 Questions:

  1. Do you insist on using the NZXT S340 case?

  2. Why did you pick that particular power supply?

I would think a SSD is unnecessary, as non of the intended application need high speed read/write functions.

You posted this on Reddit didn't ya? Awesome build in an absolutely gorgeous case!

Cheers Man!

5murphy7's Completed Build: First Build 100% done by myself. (Project Stealth)

Erolian 1 point 59 months ago

This almost was my own original design, before getting excited over the NZXT cases and throwing my $1200 budget out of the window...

I'm almost done with my build, just wait for some cabling & ODD to arrive.

Cheers on the nice build mate. :)

Hmm...I've got a very similar build, also for a friend.

Take a look!

Erolian 1 point 60 months ago

Hmmm...Interesting, I've always known Case Labs as providing non-standard cases. If I had a need for a non standard build, they are the first I'd check.

blackwhite's Completed Build: Black & White Battlestation

Erolian 2 points 60 months ago

It seemed that the H440 is replacing the Define R4 as the most popular case on here. A truly wonderful thing to behold, the H440's design, whether from a functional or aesthetic standpoint. When I was ordering my cases, the H440 was out of stock, I got the Phantom 530 instead. Anything from NZXT is the best out there at the moment.

LesGensMentales's Completed Build: Overkill Lan Rig

Erolian 1 point 60 months ago

Overkill Indeed...I shall spare you with the many pet peeves. Hehe, heck man, if one has the cash, one can do whatever build he wants. XD

I'm surprised that those things actually all fit in that tiny case.

I have a slightly upgraded version of your build :) which I am in the process of putting it together.
Here! Take a look!

Konton's Completed Build: First Build, The K3

Erolian 1 point 60 months ago

Hehe! You are right, this is a long term build. I'm currently major CS in college, this rig has to last me at least 4 years with minimum upgrades (basically worry free).

As to the case, man it is an art piece! You'd be able to see the thing up and running in 2 weeks or so. Already got most of the parts ready, others are on the way. It'd be gorgeous afterwards. XD

Konton's Completed Build: First Build, The K3

Erolian 2 points 60 months ago

I have a slightly more advanced version of your build in the works right now. Sans the SSD of course. :)
Edit: Here's My Build!

Konton's Completed Build: First Build, The K3

Erolian 2 points 60 months ago

I personally would simply go for the H100i or else I would rather go custom. XD

Konton's Completed Build: First Build, The K3

Erolian 2 points 60 months ago

For air cooled options this is the only choice, unless OP wants to match colors with the case. For water cooling, H100i is the clear choice.

seedpo's Completed Build: First Build ($400ish budget, home studio/audio production build)

A build with a clear purpose. I like these kinds of build.

Bravo!

I envy you so much for those cheap prices, here in Canada prices suck.

Btw, what case did you use, as you didn't list it?

Fluency's Completed Build: Nightmare Mk. 1

Erolian 3 points 60 months ago

Thx! They are fabulous!

Edit: That last pic, there seemed to be moisture on the control panel, is that normal for this kind of custom cooling build?

Joseph000555's Completed Build: Purple Penguin

Erolian 1 point 60 months ago

I'm building for a friend too! Very very cool build mate!

Cheers!

sepnotic's Completed Build: Mushu

Erolian 1 point 60 months ago

If you are not in it already, I'd highly recommend you take your superb custom PC building skills to the public and earn some nice enjoyable cash for yourself. Given the feedback from this community, you'd fair well for yourself.

Cheers Mate!

Tell me, why did you name your rig after a food item?
Does it taste good? ;)

AStoneRose's Completed Build: AMD Budget Build!

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

The consensus on the internet has been GTX 760 is better than R9 270X and much more powerful that the R9 270. If money is not an issue, get the GTX 760 for sure.

Man I love Student Software programs, you get win7 pro & win 8 pro & 100 more software for free! Perhaps more if Adobe gets on the boat.

My only pet peeve for ya is that mobo, with that RAM, that is most likely the reason to your slow startup time. Personally I'd go for Fx-6300 & Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+. That way you are future proof for another 5 or 6 years. That mATX tower is great but limits to to mATX line.
I'm rambling, but these are some very similar builds you would be interested in:

Cheers!

AStoneRose's Completed Build: AMD Budget Build!

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

Hehe!
Oh that's what I would do too, but seeing that OP had a limited number of pennies in his pocket a 500W would do.

Cheers!

CCASystems's Completed Build: My Technological Romance

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

Thx for the insight!
That's very good info man, the rig I'm currently building uses the AM3+ socket, perhaps you can give me some tips as I also plan to use this rig for at least 5 years.

Ahh, no wonder! $100 seemed to be the right price back then, my $60 was during boxing week. :P

How come G9x become this expensive these days? I bought it 2 years ago for a mere $60. Are they somehow different??

Could work! That's one more strain of thought.
Thx mate!

AStoneRose's Completed Build: AMD Budget Build!

Erolian 8 points 61 months ago

As a computer science major currently taking hardware related course I would like to give you a bit of an advice.

Rule of thumb for finding the correct power rating for PSU is adding the designed wattage of all parts PLUS another 30% leeway.

In your case, the designed wattage of all parts is [374W] x 130% = 486W
It is therefore recommended from a system integrity standpoint that you exchange/return your current PSU for one rated at 500W.
An underpowered system may suffer from lower performance, damages to power hungry components, and excessive heat from PSU.

Regards from a fellow pcbuilder!
Cheers!

ja23merz's Completed Build: FX-8350 Build

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

The main thing holding me back from that case is its lack of 5.25" drive bays which requires me to purchase external DVD drives, which are substantially more expensive per performance. Other than that, Its got everything I could ever dream of plus more. If you have any ideas in regard to that, please share with me.

Cheers!

ja23merz's Completed Build: FX-8350 Build

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

What is that card below the GPU card, network? Or sound? Sorry it wasn't in your parts list and it had its back facing the camera.

Yeah, for your build Raid 0 is plenty, I was merely musing about RAID 10's compromise both in redundancy and accessing speed. However the latter requires 4 HDDs with the same characteristics, costing more.

Your standalone storage drive is a very thoughtful idea, I've seen many builds with just a RAID setup plus some SSDs for boot with no real hotplug storage. Props to you mate!

Cheers!

Like minds thinks the same.
All Hail the OCD overlord.

ja23merz's Completed Build: FX-8350 Build

Erolian 1 point 61 months ago

Do tell me how easy is it working with the 500R case, I am deciding between this case, the Define R4/windowed, and the NZXT H440.
And would you mind taking a picture of the back of the mobo to see the cable management solutions?

Your Raid setup had me thinking, would RAID 10 be better or would RAID 0 be enough...

Very very neat build.
Cheers Mate!
