"No honey, it's just a small upgrade." :P

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 12 points 12 months ago

I think she will understand :)

jmanpittsburgh 9 points 12 months ago

Nice Build! Put some waterblocks on those gpus and get all the frames per second.

PacificNic 2 Builds 5 points 12 months ago

Not exactly how it works but I do agree :)

Wagzy 1 Build 2 points 11 months ago

Lower temps, then overclock :) But i thought that too, water cool them gpu's! :)

^ Hahahaha!

How are the gpus holding up in minesweeper?

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 4 points 12 months ago

Definitely need to upgrade.. my cpu is being throttled. =)

PacificNic 2 Builds 3 points 12 months ago

I would add as a custom part the XSPC kit. That looks like the AX240 kit w/ BayRes/Pump combo. Excellent choice. When you get the chance, throw the 240mm rad in the front and get a 360mm (45mm thick is a nice size) in the top and hook up your GPUs to the loop. It would make that f!#king marvelous.

comptech0408 2 points 12 months ago

What do you use this for? A great way to spend 4.5k+ !

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 5 points 12 months ago

Minesweeper HD :)

comptech0408 2 points 12 months ago

Oh, I was thinking the old school pinball game! :)

One1_ManArmy 2 points 5 months ago

A little late, but did you do the cable sleeving yourself?

BarleyJuice 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Also curious.

Possumjones 1 point 12 months ago

wow! This looks great. I agree with Jman (shout out to pitt) put those gpu's under, a couple of d-5s, new res, and another big ol rad. I believe that would be almost as good as it gets. +10 way to make a 750d look small.

PacificNic 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Uhhh... 2x D5s for redundancy? You only need one D5 running at like the 2 or 3 speed setting to push your water through that loop and still get excellent temperatures. Another pump would do next to nothing, even if the GPUs were under water. I would get a 360mm (45mm thick) rad in the top though.

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

That will be next, this was my first "custom" loop water cooling so I was a bit nervous. I am very glad I went this route as opposed to a H100i I used to use in my previous build.

PacificNic 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Yeah, I really want to go custom loop on my next build but it's so damn expensive. Probably just gonna start with the Glacer and re-use the rad for my custom one when I have the money to upgrade, as you did. Can't wait to see what you end up with!

How does 3 gpus perform vs 2 gpus?

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Performs great, although not as big as a step of from 1 - 2 but when I have my multiple monitors setup is when it will really shine.

dschutt84 3 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Nice! Awesome build.

XcmByte 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Can I say probably extreme overkill for anything but the search of an awesome computer?

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

You are right :)

ARCHER_Prototype 1 point 12 months ago

Love the description and the build xD

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Thanks!

Wow, that's a lot of power packed into a beautiful mid tower. Have any benchmark scores you can share?

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Thanks so much, I will post some screenshot's tonight.

snuffels1999 1 point 12 months ago

My pants just turned brown. +1 for death-by-wife.

JohnTsams 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Your power supply is the price of a PlayStation 4...

bytesize 1 point 12 months ago

Wut no it's 100 bucks cheaper

JohnTsams 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

$399 PS4 vs. $376 PSU

bytesize 1 point 11 months ago

Says it's only 300 dollars for me

ViolentBoo 1 point 12 months ago

Looks at The Geforce logo in the picture Oh cool, I think he has a high end card! Looks at other two ...Da faq is wrong with you?

ib10xs4u2 1 point 12 months ago

Add $1200 for the 3 monitors. Yea, your wife is going to freak when she sees the final bill. Keep posting stuff here so we know that you're still alive. :)

desync408 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I'm surprised nobody has asked you what you do for a living!

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

I work in property management for a fortune 500 company.

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Put up some unigine scores, more to come!

ArrKayCee 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

I can hear the 780's coughing...get them on water!

StrifeWolfe1994 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Beautiful rig, great part choice, and I hope your wife hasn't killed you. Now if we get the liars with their i3s and R9 260Xs off the top of the benchmarking leaderboard, this will be right at home.

Dustworks 1 point 9 months ago

why not 2 780 tis? why not have one of the 780s be a 6GB?

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I've had 2 780 Ti's 3 780's is still faster :) I now have 2 290x's and the 6gb 780 was not out at the time of the build.

Dustworks 1 point 9 months ago

for the price of that monitor I'd have gotten an Asus VG278HE 27.0",but its not 2560 x1440 so I get what you were goin for ;)

hyperionedits 1 point 9 months ago

Holy crap!!!!

MystifiedMustard 1 point 8 months ago

I like how you have an amazing processor and 3 amazing Graphics cards in SLI, though you bought a $23 headset :P

kammem 0 points 12 months ago

spense626 submitter 7 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Headphones are garbage yes, but this mouse is amazing and I have owned plenty!

ThePCguy2013 0 points 12 months ago
