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

I think she will understand :)

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

 
 
PacificNic [2 Builds] 5 points 4 months ago

Not exactly how it works but I do agree :)

 
 
Wagzy [1 Build] 2 points 4 months ago

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

 
 
Ochi14 [1 Build] 5 points 4 months ago

mate your a ******* lunatic.......i love it

 
 
PacificNic [2 Builds] 2 points 4 months ago

^ Hahahaha!

How are the gpus holding up in minesweeper?

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 4 points 4 months ago

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

 
 
PacificNic [2 Builds] 3 points 4 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 4 months ago

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

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 5 points 4 months ago

Minesweeper HD :)

 
 
comptech0408 2 points 4 months ago

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

 
 
Possumjones 1 point 4 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 4 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 4 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 4 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!

 
 
dschutt84 [3 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

How does 3 gpus perform vs 2 gpus?

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 4 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 4 months ago

Nice! Awesome build.

 
 
XcmByte [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

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

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

You are right :)

 
 
ARCHER_Prototype 1 point 4 months ago

Love the description and the build xD

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

Thanks!

 
 
Jesso2k [3 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

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 4 months ago

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

 
 
snuffels1999 1 point 4 months ago

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

 
 
JohnTsams [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

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

 
 
bytesize 1 point 4 months ago

Wut no it's 100 bucks cheaper

 
 
JohnTsams [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

$399 PS4 vs. $376 PSU

 
 
bytesize 1 point 4 months ago

Says it's only 300 dollars for me

 
 
ViolentBoo 1 point 4 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 4 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 4 months ago

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

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 2 points 4 months ago

I work in property management for a fortune 500 company.

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

Put up some unigine scores, more to come!

 
 
ArrKayCee [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

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

 
 
StrifeWolfe1994 [2 Builds] 1 point 4 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 2 months ago

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

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 2 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 2 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 2 months ago

Holy crap!!!!

 
 
MystifiedMustard 1 point 1 month 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 4 months ago

bad mouse and headphone:(

 
 
spense626 [Submitter] [7 Builds] 1 point 4 months ago

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