+1 for honesty

Honesty is the best policy...

Deathwyhsh 29 points 13 months ago

You might have to upgrade soon, so you are able to handle pinball 2.0 though.

milesknight [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

totally i bet it only runs mine sweeper at like 2fps.

Aaayron 12 points 13 months ago

Dang! That's awesome! You could probably play Minesweeper at best 30fps on ultra with that card!

Circfreak13 [1 Build] 9 points 13 months ago

"Its mainly used for gaming, reddit and ****." hahahhaha people like you make my day :) +1 good build!

ilian11 [1 Build] 6 points 13 months ago

hahaha, nice "****" machine

cam313 [1 Build] 4 points 13 months ago

I wish I could give 100 upvotes for the description alone! Honestly though, that is one of the best jobs of cable management I have seen on a PSU that isn't modular. Good job!

ryleehagen 3 points 11 months ago

can it run minecraft though

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 10 months ago

Mannnnn I be pushing 10-15 FPS on minecraft.

How come you don't like the monitor?

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 13 months ago

The size of the screen is 27" with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 witch is small for the size. I gonna sell it and get something with 1440 or a smaller screen size. Also, the 3D was cool for about a week or two and then it became bothersome to charge the glasses and wear them. Keep in mind not all modern games support 3D too.

istealunderwear [7 Builds] 0 points 13 months ago

I got the same monitor, but I don't see any problem with the resolution being 1080p, i don't see any pixelation at all. I tend to hear that a lot about this monitor, but if you think about it. Most modern Tvs only run at 1080p MAX only now a 4k tvs coming. And no television show is even send in that resolution

so a 40" tv watching full hd, doesn't really pixelate to me either, so that's why i find it a weird arguement for it being a "bad" monitor. Atleast that's not why you're not liking, or what?

But you're absolutly right about the 3D, it's not really anything too special was fun for a couple of weeks then it got boring and sometimes even annoying and you stopped using it anyway. So yeah, I even use AMD cards now, so I can't even 3D if i wanted to.

Anyway about the 1080p on a 27", is the problem just that you rather want a 27" 1440p?

Last thing how come you payed nearly 450$ for it? I got mine for 300? And I'm positive it's the same monitor. You could get a decent 1440p monitor for 450$

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

The first think I thought when I read this was Respect

You defiantly have a valid point. This monitor must not be the one I am looking for.

PacificNic [2 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

Proximity to the screen also plays into how much pixelation you can notice

istealunderwear [7 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

I sit pretty close to my screen like 80-120cm

aludka 2 points 13 months ago

all in all very nice +1

aighamdi [2 Builds] 2 points 13 months ago

How do you like that headset? is the amp making any difference?

Great build btw

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 13 months ago

To be honest, I got the A40's for its flexibility between Xbox and PC. Now that I have decided to invest my money in my rig instead of a new console some of the features go unused. For instance the mic to game volume doesn't do anything on the PC(unless I am doing something wrong). Also, sometimes people complain about the mic quality on Teamspeek and Ventrillo and I have not found any fixes on Google.

ImElkay [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

I had the exact same problems with mine. Returned them and am now looking at the Sennheiser HD598 and just a cheap mod mic until I can get an Audiotechnica AT2020

5k on a water cooled build and goes with a mid sized case. Why put monstas in a mid? why not go with full sized case? corsair 900d would have fit ur budget better.

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

A Lot of people have been saying that. I think I am going to.

GaldedRaw 1 point 10 months ago

I am going to when I get back from my "trip" haha!!

elferguson 2 points 10 months ago

All I can say is...... DAMN!!!!

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

haha thanks man!

Chris34 [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

you sir, are amazing

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Why thank you kind sir.

Enax 2 points 8 months ago

Are those corsair sleeved cables?

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

They are indeed!

wdiscoe 2 points 8 months ago

hey! i saw your headphones on /r/ headphones!

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

You are correct! I have been there hah

jonathanmadison12 2 points 8 months ago

I love your background, it goes well with the build. Looks beautiful, great work.

epicfacecr [1 Build] 2 points 7 months ago

I think you should be set for Minesweeper, you'd probably hit ~15 FPS on the highest settings with full DLC on.

PacificNic [2 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

How do you like the A40s? On Newegg, they get horrible reviews but Newegg reviews aren't the most accurate. What do you think of them? Nice build, man! :)

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

Already answered in comment above.

PacificNic [2 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

Alright, didn't see. Thanks!

Seantastic 1 point 13 months ago

Hey, how heavy is it by the handles when you pick it up? Would it be easy to take for LAN Parties?

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

hmmm. It is heavy considering everything I have in there but its much more easy to move the tower around with the carrying handles vs picking it up from the bottom.

tbrezniak 1 point 10 months ago

You spent over $5000 and yet you have a radiator just leaning in the front of your case?

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

I have upgraded to an obsidian 750d since I posted this.

Maroon 1 point 9 months ago

Did you need to do anything to the Asus Formula in order to fit it in the 750D?

wolffboy212 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Nope, just another regular motherboard mounting.

Maroon 1 point 9 months ago

I heard the standoffs doesn't fit with the back armor?

MrGreen718 1 point 7 months ago

Where did you get that chair. I am in need of one!

Mike123098 1 point 6 months ago

80.0° C with water cooling...something wrong with the loop?

SneakyBastardSword 1 point 6 months ago

perfect for light web browsing and occasional nethack or dwarf fortress 7-12 fps

Blackie_Sheen [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

After all this good ****, all thats needed to complete that gabulousness is to get a raceseat type office chair. +1 for your insanity
