Regulus

Description

This computer is a rebuild from my old computer. I've had the 660 Ti's for almost 2 years now, I will upgrade them eventually, but I have no issues with performance on this computer right now, so there's really no need.

The purpleish color you see in the case is from UV light bars in the computer. I manually sleeved the 24 pin and 8 pin cables from my PSU with UV reactive sleeving, but for some reason the camera picks up the actual UV light instead of the glow on the cables, so it looks a little different in pictures than in person.

The lights you see next to my monitor are ambx cyborg lights that change color based on what is displayed on the screen, and make gaming sweet and immersive and stuff (as long as it isn't bright in the room).

I overclocked my CPU and GPUs to get up to a 9180 on 3d mark (so that I could feel validated by 3d mark telling me I have a high end gaming PC), and then I clocked everything back to stock. As I said above, this computer performs 60+ FPS on my 1440 monitor on ultra for all games that I play, so no reason overclocking anything.

I named it Regulus because I googled "blue stars", and regulus sounded cool.

I use this computer for for light photoshop and adobe flash design work, as a media center for my TV (paying for cable is so last year), and a lot of gaming/frapsing/streaming.

I've had the 660 Ti's for almost 2 years now. I just recently upgraded the mobo and CPU, and am getting the performance I need from the computer. I will upgrade the cards eventually, but can't afford to upgrade everything at once. I usually try to upgrade something on the computer 1-2 times a year depending on bonuses at work.

Looking EXTREMELY nice inside, I love your setup. This would be a great video editing/animation machine, so I hope that's what it's mainly being used for. A description might help.

Rainmeter the best, though you should use the skin "Serenity"

I would have never spent that much on 660Tis... They are crippled by their small memory bus and really for that price a 760 would have been a much much much better choice. You deffo need a description.

Sorry, I'll put a description on it. I didn't even know people could see my build, I was still working on putting everything together on here, lol. I rebuilt this computer from an older system, I've had those 660 Ti's for almost 2 years now. I just recently added a new mobo and a the 4930k. I'll upgrade the cards eventually, but for now they do the trick.

Oh, I understand. You can edit the prices on those manually as well. Anyway, very nice rig, congratz!

 
 
Jdolliver 1 point 8 months ago

Awesome two tones. what did you use to pull that off?

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

The purple is actually UV light, honestly it looks way better in the picture than in person, the camera aperture picked up the UV light you can't normally see. I had put the UV light in because the sleeving that I did to the PSU was UV reactive.

 
 
Bartmanicus [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

looking at buying that monitor, how is it?

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

I absolutely love the **** out of it. It's almost mind boggling once you set it up the first time how much better it looks than a standard 1080 monitor.

Hey I noticed that you got the corsair h100i liquid cpu cooler and was wondering if you had any problems mounting it on the top radiator mount
