A good build that fits a legitimate purpose. Introducing tech to kids at a young age is very important imho, considering where we're going in the future. I remember times my older brother would allow me to help with PC projects when I was a lad, also when my father bought me my first PC at the age of 10. Memories and lessons like that are why I took computing as both a hobby and a profession!
Also kudos for the PCI-E riser, very inventive and doesn't look that bad at all. Definitely an attention grabber.
Sick, quite possibly the sickest. Love that custom mod reservoir, very imaginative and innovative.
Very pretty. I've always wanted to build the smallest PC possible, but the concept of actually planning and building one has always scared me. Building in this case must have been an extreme pain, but your sacrifice shows in the quality of the build. Well done!
I am more interested/confused in the fact that you have a 10K+ giant PC, and you have it set up in a camper van of all places. I am so curious about why, but should I really know? I'm not so sure.
Agreed, very clean. Well done.
I actually like how you can't see the motherboard, makes it look neater.
Feature, feature, FEATure, FEATURE!
My God, that's one of the best case mods I've ever seen. Extremely pretty, and clean, and with a theme, and lighting, and just overall coolness. A++
Woah yeah, no way. I've never seen this motherboard before. Absolutely nuts.
One of the cleanest white builds I've ever seen! The execution is on-point, well done!
This build is so tasty to look at... I love that CPU block, absolutely sick!
+1 for Boggle
Very neat! I've been wanting to buy an old Optiplex from Ebay and make a NAS out of it, good to see other people are repurposing these powerful machines.
Beautiful white build man! You definitely have bigger balls than I do, painting that motherboard and all.
If you're looking for suggestions, might I recommend adding some pure white LED lighting to the bottom of the case. The GPU casts a dark shadow over the lower half of the motherboard, which could look a lot prettier if it was illuminated.
I have seen a few builds using a DIY lightpanel (cut acrylic with LEDs embedded, with LEDs covered in reflective tape) placed on top of the PSU shroud. Would really make the build shine for sure.
Dope setup. Not much of a fan with the pink aesthetic, but I dig the urban style you're going for. Must of taken you ages place the stickers, let alone the art you've done under the desk. Kudos to you!
Man, I'm very jealous of that HOF GPU. You spoil it by not having it in a pure white build, it makes me sad.
Beautiful, very pretty, well done!
I wanted to go with making my build as white as yours, but at the time I had some real difficulty trying to find components that were even remotely white in aesthetics. It's a crime that manufacturers don't make white components often! You're an inspiration to go further for sure.
In terms of additional LED strips, might I suggest the Cooler Master MasterAccessory white LED strips? They're super bright and are a super clean white, at least in my experience.
Neat micro build! You could easily turn that into a living room emulation station.
Very pretty, those Chromax additions are such a sexy addition to any build.
I did it to an SSD on my most recent build, works extremely well and is damn sexy.
Use a hair dryer to slowly heat up the sticker and the adhesive, then just slowly peel it off as you take the heat on and off the SSD. If there's any residue (I didn't get any honestly) you can try using a little IPA and a cloth.
Brother, you must have quite a lucrative business to afford such a beast.
I'd work for you just for a cut of the cheddar...
The colours look like radioactive icecream.
I dig it.
You're definitely up for the best Dad award, that's for sure.
That's sensible honestly, larger cases are extremely cumbersome and mostly impractical. I still stick by my opinion that larger PC cases are meant for eye-candy and expert modding. The Thermaltake V21 is a better choice definitely, easier to work with and moveable once you're done with it.
Lovely build, very pretty.
Might I suggest adding the Noctua chromax heatsink covers to the NH-D15S, would go well with the white case.
Yes, featured, instantly.
This is a seriously dope build man, excellent execution! You deserve the praise you're about to receive.
The case is so mid-2000s and ugly, I absolutely adore it!
I'd love to build in it, looks like a straight forward layout to work in.
Wow, fitting so much in such little space...
I can't imagine how stressful it must have been to build this, well done for getting it all in there.
Neat VM host, certainly has enough muscle to power multiple OS machine states.
Your pics certainly capture the absolute absurdity of the Thermaltake Core X9, the sheer girth of the case is absolutely ridiculous.
I kinda love this. Seriously.
A truly useless machine. Only assembled to look good, and not function at all.
Maybe it isn't totally useless. Maybe the point of assembling such a machine is to bring true use back to the broken components, which would otherwise be thrown into the electronics scrap heap.
This could be considered art.
You might be onto something here.
Wow, this build is sexy. I wish I could make a build of this quality!
Love the two different cooling systems with separate colour tones, makes it look like a sci-fi atomic reactor.
Dope build, clean execution with a healthy description. Love it bro.
I feel like I'm slowly falling down the rabbit hole of pointless upgrades/downgrades purely on an aesthetic basis, and I notice I am standing on the precipice of no return.
The first step of recovery is admitting you have a problem...
That's incredible man, really innovative!
I may have to take inspiration from this build with a future project I'm thinking about.
If your broadband upload speed is above 2.5Mbps (check via speedtest.net) then you should be able to stream flawlessly at 720p, with the condition that your broadband connection is stable and doesn't cut out at times.
The fact that your framerate cuts out while in a demanding game makes me think that your CPU can't handle the extra weight of rendering and broadcasting a Twitch stream. It's either that or you have some gnarly software running in the background that is affecting the CPU.
Some Twitch streamers use an extra PC for rendering, sure, but it seriously isn't needed. A PC should have enough grunt to play videogames and stream content at the same time.
Well done! Definitely worthy of a feature.
Beautiful build. Love the colour coordination with supreme cable management.
Of course, very nice photography too.
Interesting build, but I hope you're going to swap out those internals for more appropriate hardware.
For example, I've just seen that NZXT is selling a new cover plate for their N7 motherboard which is Nuka-Cola themed. It would be a shame if this opportunity was missed, friend.
Huh, very interesting. So is your profession penetration testing for organisations? (No joke intended)
A good and practical use of those GPUs imho, a lot of builds out there contain 2+ GPUs and they don't use them to their fullest potential.
Really shivers me timbers
This is your first build??
Dayum. Well, you definitely hit it out of the park. I absolutely love the aesthetics and how clean you've managed it. Well done!
"Sir! The central processor is getting too hot! Its going into mealtdown!!"
"ADD MORE FANS DAMN IT!"
All jokes aside, I love it.
Beautiful build, well done. To be honest, at the current frequency you're running the 8700K, having temps of 70-80c is extremely good for such a tight case. I'd love to have one of these small form-factor builds with that CPU and make it into the perfect living room Emulation Station.
Nice quality build. Not to my tastes, but hey it looks professionally constructed. Well done.
One of the most dope setups I've seen, ever.
What you have, good sir, is my dream setup once I have my own apartment/house. I'm also smiling at that Core X9 case, the thing is HUGE (I bought one accidentally) but in your room it certainly doesn't reflect the true mass of the monster.
The walls do look a bit bare though, did you just move in? Personally I'd hang up a bunch of framed game/movie posters to suit the function of the home theater.
Regardless, major kudos to you!
Great looking build. Nice to see you're getting them involved in it too!
Damn that this build is stellar.
I think my idea of hell is building inside a super small ITX case, the cables would be too much for my mortal soul.
Kudos to you!
Nice cube, very neato.
Its called a joke, a commonly associated to humour.
Very nice build.
You must have a very lucrative professional career to be able to afford your builds, including the hardware on your desk!
