This thing is beast mode! Can we see some more pics though?!

Did you click on the imgur link? http://imgur.com/a/srLVY

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

If that isn't enough I can take some more tonight and add them to the album. Anything specific you'd like to see?

 
 
skemble [14 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

AH! I didn't see the link! No way you took plenty. Very cool documentation process. I'm a stickler for that kind of stuff. This is very well done and should last you a long time. Bravo!

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

Thank you and I hope so. Last one I did was about 6 years ago and I'd like to get that much out of this one.

 
 
skemble [14 Builds] 3 points 11 months ago

Damn the speed of technology upgrades, damn it all to hell ;)

I updated 6 more images in the imgur gallery with the new green led bitfenix spectre pro radiator fans :) http://imgur.com/gallery/srLVY

This is balling man. One of my favorite builds on here for sure! I just love the prodigy :D

 
 
Radicult [2 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

Omg, this thing is GREAT!

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

I added some new pictures. I ended up drilling some holes into the side panel for airflow to the video card. I was having temps get upwards of 95 degrees. Once I modded these holes in I have now never gone over 75!! Highly recommended mod!!!

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

I had wondered how video cards faired in that case without some side ventilation. Thanks for the info and the mod.

 
 
Chuk 2 points 8 months ago

I'm loving the old desk and how the cupboards are being used

 
 
Silarial [2 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

This is a BEAUTIFUL custom rig. I love the drill work you did on the window for the ACX cooler. Excellent job! :D

 
 
h4r15 1 point 11 months ago

Nice Mini ITX build. Even though those monitors are a bit overpriced.

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

I actually got all 3 as refurbs for $200 each :)

 
 
Sabotage 1 point 11 months ago

Wow. That is a big system in a small package!

Nice build, but something tells me a single 770 with just 2GB memory might have some trouble with 3 monitors, especially with higher texture resolutions.

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

I've only been playing on it for a couple days and I don't really know how to stress test it, but I haven't had any issues yet. All of the Blizzard games on ultra settings haven't been able to take it under 52fps at 5760x1080. I'm gonna try Skyrim soon and see how that works out.

 
 
Peterowsky 1 point 11 months ago

Skyrim should run pretty smooth unless you try the high-res user packs or the graphic overhauls.

Glad it runs what you play.

I was half expecting to see it struggle with the crysis/battlefield series, no one board can handle that resolution well for demanding games.

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

I do plan on getting Battlefield 4 although I've never played that series before. I'm kind of thinking I'm done with consoles so I will get CoD and stuff on the PC too. However, worst case I can just play on one screen and use the other two for browsing/webpages. I've never played Crysis either O_o I'm kind of way behind on PC stuff. I've heard I need to play Bioshock series and Mass Effect series so I was planning on that soon.

sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Lots of web browsing :) I liked the look of it more than the form factor and I didn't like how my old mid tower didn't fit into my desk so it was a no brainer to me!

 
 
strauts6 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Your description on how to assemble this was a great job!

 
 
Norm101 [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

That keyboard is gorgeous. Just magnificent. How does it play?

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Even better than I had hoped. I had read some bad reviews but that little LCD is a dream to use and very responsive. I'm not going to put a screen protector on it or anything. The little rubber wrist rest is a dust MAGNET but other than that I love how responsive it is and I like the feel of it. It has some "neato" factor too. I'd love to see more games come up with apps for it!

 
 
fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

Sexy.

 
 
iAmNicklezz 1 point 11 months ago

WOW. THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

 
 
xSachira 1 point 11 months ago

Really clean and great choice of parts, really love your build. +1

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Thanks!

 
 
Enlyten [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

This whole setup is FANTASTIC. Outstanding attention to detail as well as plenty of aesthetic appeal :) +1!

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Thank you very much. I really enjoyed this one.

 
 
Catharist [3 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

Did fantastic on your cable management, love your desk set up.

nice

 
 
Xxjackhark1xX 1 point 11 months ago

Awesome build man! I'm trying to get that same mobo that you have, but I can't find it anywhere besides newegg, but newegg is out of stock of that asus mobo, do you know any retailer that sells this asus mobo?

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

I got it on newegg the day it released. I was going to get an asrock board and was finalizing my system when I saw the asus release so I jumped on it.

 
 
alifoxey 1 point 11 months ago

How are the temps?

Also awesome build, I am extremely jealous and may steal a few ideas from this

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Ran prime95 today for an hour at 4.6ghz and the hottest it got was 84 Celsius.

 
 
hoezayftw [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

Beautiful, man! I'm actually building my first rig, it's a Prodigy (Orange) as well. This is the same MoBo I planned on using, can I ask why you got it and if it was worth it? I wanted to buy it mainly for the extra fan headers, but I've decided to throw a fan controller on there so I won't need the extra headers. Anyways, you're build is perfect! I've fallen in love with these Prodigy builds, I'm gonna go stare at mine now :) haha.

 
 
sasquatchiii [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 11 months ago

Yes the other boards only have TWO headers! Four is fantastic and I like the built in wifi and just asus brand in general. I pushed one button and it self overclocks. Super easy, I love it.

 
 
hoezayftw [2 Builds] 2 points 11 months ago

Yeah I keep trying to convince myself that I should save the extra ~$50 but my hearts pretty set on that ASUS haha. Quality comes at a price.

 
 
TheCrazyCryptonite 1 point 8 months ago

Are you running all three of those monitors on that build?

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

very very nice. I especially like the hidden aspect, and the forethought to add vent holes took the window. Btw do you have any intake fans or porthole in the desk to let air in? +1

 
 
LookTopHats [2 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

Hey, how load is that bitfenix fan, a first hand review would be great! Cheers

 
 
Graestone45 1 point 5 months ago

When on earth did the prodigy get a window? anyway, nice build :)

 
 
starwarsguy99 1 point 4 months ago

Wow wish I had that

 
 
1977xc 1 point 1 month ago

Awesome build, very similar to what I have planned for my first build. Your photo build comments are worth a +10 if I could give it, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would use this as a first time builder.

Love the window panel mod, I was looking at Corsair 250D for a window but prefer the prodigy look (and the 250D front looks like it would mark over time).

Thanks for the tips on building, will make mine much easier :)

 
 
drbau5 1 point 4 days ago

you ruined the looks of the side panel with those ventilation holes

 
 
Goku671 [1 Build] 0 points 11 months ago

those monitors are ganging up on that poor little computer, little do they no, he is a lot stronger than he looks. "you won't like me when i'm angry." Monitors runs Crysis. Computer Hulks out and destroys monitor set up with a solid 40 fps.
