Comment reply on Hanime's Completed Build: HTPC & NAS PC Build

Great build! I absolutely love the idea of HTPC and home servers. It's a refreshing change from the "My First Gaming" builds. I hate to bring this up since it's a sore topic, but I wouldn't suggest that PSU for a 24/7 server. Don't get me wrong, it's not the worst ever and it has it's place in certain builds, but I would get something more reliable for that type of use. You can even match that price and get an Antec 450.

HERE is the tier list that Tiny_Voices used to link everyone too. Maybe check it out if you are interested in a bit of research. I'm not a PSU police but I never looked at PSU's the same again.

Thank you so very much for checking on that. I appreciate it. I may just end up modding my 750D a bit and saving some cash then. I know I can at least get push/pull on the 280. Compromises, why? Sigh. Thanks!!!

Nice build! Did the pre-drilled holes support that reservoir mount?

Hey there! Would you mind doing me a favor and measuring the bottom inside of the case from the front to the back where the 360 radiator mounting location would be? Also, can you please measure from the inside bottom left up to the bay shroud where the 2 intake fans are?

I'm trying to determine if this case is capable of running a 280mm radiator in the front and a 360mm radiator in the bottom at the same time. Thank you!

If anything, the rapid rise in votes made other cheaters take notice - then they became more aggressive in their strategies (making it easier for us to identify them too)

This is sad to hear but understandable. I can see how it affected some of the contestants and can only imagine the burden it placed on the mods. I would hate to add to the "do this instead" list but if there ever a possibility of doing this again, make it a majority vote between 3 pcpartpicker reps and 2 MSI reps. This would completely eliminate the need to cheat by removing the upvote and celeb status.

The only drawback is the personal affiliation between the reps and the contestants but I would imaging that not being an issue amongst the mature and just.

I agree with both sides but in this case, his guide was indeed good. I wouldn't change a thing myself. Good thoughts on both ends.

Just something that comes with using rigid lines because the tube isn't being "compressed" by the fittings like flex lines do.

I figured this was the case but I wanted to confirm with someone who has recently been through it. Thanks for helping put my mind at ease!

Haha! Buddy, I didn't even enter the competition. Do you know why? I am already fortunate enough to have my dream build...

Simply, Obsidian

And that's even recently changed to an x99 platform with a custom hardline loop and different color scheme. I will be posting some eye candy soon when I finish bending.

What kind of PETG tubing are you using? I purchased the XSPC PETG tubing and the XSPC compression fittings and they are nowhere near as secure as soft tubing with compression fittings.

When attached, I can pull them right off with medium effort. Was this the case for you as well?

Yes, this is understood without having to explain. The fact that one would attempt an explanation only strengthens the case for the opposite. I'm not accusing, I'm just saying we need to let the mods do their job.

Any guy/girl can run their own average website. Luckily for us, this is no average website and because of this, we can confirm that the guys/girls who run this site are above average themselves. I'm sure they can handle the perpetrators.

Maybe when things settle down I'll explain what I saw.

I hope this thought manifests into reality. I really want to know what type of network forensic techniques you guys employed in order to determine who was cheating. Or perhaps it was just good old detective work beyond a reasonable doubt.

So it's not surprising at all to learn of this at all. I do hope that, even if a similar thing has happened on Jipster's Build Guide, that you can just remove the fake votes. Because, and this isn't me being bias, Jipster wouldn't do anything like SkyCorsona did. He even told people not to do it, as he said above.

I know you want to support Jipster but these type of comments raise an eyebrow. Just let the solid evidence do the talking and congratulate whoever wins. There is no need to vouch for someones character on a forum as if you know this person by heart. If you just remove the fake votes, you might as well bring Sky back here and remove his fake votes as well. People who get caught cheating during a test do not have the privilege of omitting just the answers they cheated on, they get an instant F on the whole test.

That's like a helmet for a bike. Others may make fun of you and it's not necessary when nothing is going wrong at the time, but on the rare occasion where something could, you'll be glad you were wearing it.

I do every time I build but more importantly, don't build on carpet.

Nice build! Your cable management isn't that bad at all. For future reference, I would avoid setting anything on the anti static bags once you take it out. Use the motherboard box instead as it makes for a nice non-conductive bench.

+1 for the PC but more importantly, +1 for the samurai.

Very nice build. Did you plan on running those 2x 140mm fans on the AIO in pull configuration? As it stands now, you are pulling fresh air in for the CPU which is great, but you are also exhausting all the heat into the case.

Your GPU temp might drop a bit if you flip the fans.

I love the 250D, nice build! Even though your temps are within the acceptable range, you may be doing your airflow injustice with that ugly electrical tape. Instead, if you'd like to take your build to the very next level, I would pick up two of these 80mm fan filters!

Higher temps both when idling and under load. I wouldn't use the software you have shown to benchmark and stress test your system. Everyone uses Prime95 for the CPU, Furmark for the GPU and HWMonitor to closely monitor temps.

Also TechyinAZ's suggestion about the rice sized drop of thermal paste depends on the viscosity. I would just follow the manufacturers suggestion. Arctic Silver 5, for instance, calls for a vertical line if running a quad core CPU like yours.

Yeah I agree. I didn't participate myself because I am already fortunate enough to have my dream build but I've seen others out there employ...tactics.

This competition should focus on a the users Dream PC regardless of fanbase or tactics. The word "Dream" is very subjective so it obviously varies from user to user. Because of this, presentation and description is everything. What does it mean to you? Otherwise, its just a group of parts and not a dream PC.

I think you hit the mark with your build guide and I would love to see it come alive, even if there is a bit of "pretty please upvote". :p

I did when I first posted.

At first glance, this part list looks as though it was constructed by someone running up and down the aisles of a Micro Center while randomly chucking parts into a cart.

Sorry about my previous comment. I wasn't in the best of moods last night. Shameless plug or not, this build is worthy of being called a dream build and I think you did a nice job breathing life into the guide.

I can already see it pieced together now. ITX FTW. Good job.

This is true, however running up and down Microcenter aisles grabbing random parts is a bad thing. Also, you just helped me realize that I have the wrong aisles in the description. Thanks! :/
