What a build. It's funny how a case made out of wood could give someone ... ideas for their next build. Outstanding work.
Oh, it's just lovely. Was this your first delidding? How much alcohol is required - accounting both for cleaning off the original compound and for courage? Great build, great write-up. +1
That is just beautiful. What a brilliant job. I would be tempted to just hit that ignition switch over and over...
What an amazing job on this build. +1 for the build, and my vote for best dad of 2017 so far.
Excellent, if somewhat frightening description. +1 for staying in character.
Let's be forever let forever be free
This build is so silent, I can't even read the description! +1
Beautiful, BRUTAL, work! +1
Sweet Jeebus. Beautifully done. +1
Very cool case, very good build! +1
Another entry in the case drawer club!!! Woohoo! Nicely done sir. +1
Worth every penny, that's amazing!!! With the caveat that it's perfect, it's beautiful, and I love it...what if you had made your warp core into the reservoir?! That's the only way I can imagine it being more epic. Of course if the coolant leaked you'd need to do a Geordi roll.
Beautiful work, +Warp 9
Beautifully done! +1
Haha, well great minds I suppose :) If mine has been any indication, you should be very pleased with your results! Good luck!
I think it should be called "My First and Final Workstation." Have you considered what you're going to do once it becomes self aware? Wait... we haven't heard from the OP since he posted this....
Wow. I've been fascinated by the Lian Li desk case ever since I saw it on a random PC Component safari... at the time I thought 'well that's pretty slick.' If I had seen this completed build, I might've bought this on the spot. Seriously, Lian-Li needs to see this. Beautiful job sir. Can't wait to see what kind of overclocks you get.
Thanks! Yeah almost a year later I'm still very, very happy with the final product. The arrival of Pascal has stung somewhat, but that's how it goes with GPUs. I have to say I'm not at all bummed about missing the broadwell-e boat, by all accounts the haswell-e is a far more consistent and capable overclocker, and broadwell didn't add game-changing features. I definitely would have gotten a more modest PSU given a second try, as I doubt I will ever even use half of the wattage, but it's not keeping me up at night. Good luck with your build, and welcome to the community!
I believe I still loaded the drivers manually, though it's possible that it would have worked anyway. On the most recent build I helped with we just plugged a PCI wifi card in and it worked right away. I'd recommend having a wired connection at the ready just in case.
Awesome, that is more than respectable, especially in that form factor. Well done!
Haha awesome. It's funny because it's an amazing gaming computer, but the only game I'd want to play is "transform the case!" Thanks for posting!
Great looking build! Definitely getting a good power/ cubic inch ratio on that bad boy! I'm always curious about temps with full fat components in a small form factor; how's it holding up in that regard?
Can we see a video of this guy transforming? Thanks for making us all feel sad about our builds, in a good way!
+1000 for an incredible, beautiful build.
-999 for starting the explanation with an Ayn Rand quote. Gross.
Universe, you've done it again! I've been quite pleased with the R1 Ultimate; I bought it for looks as much as for performance, and I'm still happy in both regards. As for the case fan, it's been perfect as my bottom intake fan as the highest CFM fan in my rig - airflow is good, and not too loud. In all I think they are fine products!
Not particularly high. With the Corsair Vengeance sticks I had no issues, but I suspect anything taller than that (such as ripjaws or corsair dominator) wouldn't clear the bottom of the cooler. The 3rd and 4th channel slots fall outside of where the cooler sits (which was convenient when I added them), but the 1st and 2nd slots are right under it.
This was an upgrade on a 27" 1080p VA monitor. In my very non-professional estimation, it's been a huge step up. A couple minor things: The viewing angles are somewhat limited - obviously not an issue if your the sole person viewing it. Mine has a slight bleed along the lower edge, which is utterly unnoticeable when I'm gaming. The color and brightness are quite good for a TN panel, and the features - 1440p, G-Sync really shine. Gaming on this thing is a dream, loving the as-advertised smoothness of G-sync. Overall I'd recommend it if you want to save $200 or more and forego the newer IPS g sync models out there.
You think you can just build a PC in a yacht and not get a Yacht Rock reference in the comments!? That's what a fool believes! This is it! This PC will ride like the wind!
More like...easy Gob
No comment, and, thanks!
Dang thanks for making me feel better :D
Those 5k imacs do look pretty sexy.
I got mine at Microcenter: http://www.microcenter.com/product/298575/525_Black_Drive_Bay_Internal_Storage_Box#
Sometimes I just open and shut it. Aww yeah.
Zip ties FTW!
Come love, come fear, I am the Stallion!
Sure did! I was about halfway to going out to buying some fishing line and then I thought... this will work. Thanks!
Thank you! I may be most proud of the last picture :)
Thank you! Glad to be here!
Thanks! When I first popped it in, there was a bit of a dip on the far side, but a couple zip ties took care of that.
Thank you so much! Glad to be a member! Some of the prices are a little different from what I paid. Not that it's...much lower than 3k :)
I'm not sure that's what you're supposed to use it for... Thanks :)
Hardy har har :)
Really appreciate the compliments, thank you!
I'm glad you asked about the Steam Controller. I would agree with the reports that it has a bit of a learning curve, but that shouldn't dissuade someone from trying it out. After having used it for the past couple months... I love it. It takes some getting used to, but the level of responsiveness is incredible, and DEFINITELY viable for FPS.
I know I know...forgive me :)
Appreciate it, thanks!
My first comment on another build, and it's a doozy:
You have a kegerator in your office!? And you didn't list it on the part list!?
The rest of the build looks just fine, but a tap within arm's reach of your gaming rig? +100
considers adding 40 TB of HDD space
Yeah good point. Thanks!
I thought that may be the case, although there's a good chance I'll add additional HDDs/ SSDs in the future.
Everything I've seen about the Arctic Silver paste says it's the bees knees, only, you know, in 21st century vernacular. What would you suggest? Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks! I will post when I get to building :D
