I..think my heart stopped. Some day..some day..I shall build something like this. Of course I wouldn't claim it as my own though, that's just disrespectful. xD

Ughhhhhhh Nerdgasm. That's so amazing.

 
 
Graestone45 1 point 8 months ago

Awesome, repost with more pics! How did you get the tubing like that? I'm looking at making one myself.

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 4 points 8 months ago

Thanks. It's acrylic tubing that's bent with a heat gun and a rubber hose insert. Check the link in my description for more pics and vids.

 
 
Graestone45 2 points 8 months ago

How loud does this run? +1 by the way, very cool build!

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

About 27dB recorded with my Android phone (not the most accurate), from a meter away. 35dB up close with with side panel off. The fans are all running at 7V.

 
 
LokStock [2 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

Can you do a YouTube video of how loud the whole thing is? :D

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

I'll be doing a vid soon on changing all the waterblocks and replacing the EX480 to an RX480 V3. Temps will be compared and noise will be measured.

fsma92 [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

how much did this beast cost you

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

Price updated. However there will be some changes to the water blocks. I'm waiting for Maxwell. Skipping 700 series GPUs for now.

kwebber321 1 point 8 months ago

jesus that looks bad ass. did you do some heavy modding on the case?

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

Actually the Switch 810 is very symmetrical and is easy to rotate. I did a good amount of cutting/modding to get it to where it is though. Thanks!!

 
 
Kofoe [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks!!

 
 
ViolentBoo 1 point 8 months ago

WHAT THE FAWK

Perfect. Just strand yourself on an island with this computer, electricity, internet, and an endless pack of skittles and you are all good.

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Lol. Can't forget beer...

 
 
Graestone45 1 point 7 months ago

Oh no... HE FORGOT THE BEER! :OOOO

 
 
Ninjadudewhat 1 point 3 months ago

actually i would argue you can't forget some form of water filtration. but it's an amazing build nevertheless

 
 
Plectro 1 point 8 months ago

0_0 I just... wow uh.... such doge

 
 
dustfinger 1 point 7 months ago

So I'm looking into getting a triple monitor setup and I was just wondering how thin is the bezel on the monitors and does it bother you when you're gaming?

 
 
powellbm86 [4 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

That is super pretty.

 
 
wubley 1 point 7 months ago

Amazing build man! I watched your youtube videos and saw just how dedicated you were to this machine. A+ work :D I wanted to ask you about those monitors, how are they working for you? I've been shopping around for inexpensive IPS panels and I've stumbled upon this Dell display. So what are your thoughts? Anyways great build, and I hope to see more of your work :D

 
 
shakasquid 1 point 6 months ago

that is beautiful.

 
 
nhall.bob 1 point 6 months ago

My new favorite build on pcpp.

 
 
Echocookie 1 point 5 months ago

1.9k on water cooling alone... I wish I could have your cooling system, looks badass.

 
 
Echocookie 1 point 5 months ago

What game is Dora playing?

 
 
DodecPCs [2 Builds] 1 point 5 months ago

This is amazing! How long did it take you to build this?

 
 
KernelKaramilk 1 point 5 months ago

This is by far the most beautiful rig I've ever seen

 
 
BlastXin 1 point 4 months ago

mmh, this looks like frozen blue chocolates!

 
 
Billeeehhhh 1 point 4 months ago

It looks empty for me like the case is used for only half of its potential. I like the design and parts it's just the emptiness for me that doesn't like it. Almost sad seeing wasted space.

 
 
MicahL [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

That is an awesome pastel blue, the only way it could be better is if it was emerald green :p thats just my favorite color. +1

 
 
Kriston_S@101 1 point 3 months ago

Wow that's a beauty. Good Job

 
 
jkkavan [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

My buddy told me the Corsair speakers were highly rated. I just built a 'Bunker' Box for no. 1 son in the US Army using this site. So I look at the builds using it. And I find you. I know you are doing it "for the children". Kid using computer for educational purposes. (Truth is I had to re-do a box to run ArcGIS for my daughter.) Good Lord, Man! Freaking incredible. Work of Art. (How are the speakers? I guess by the monitor question, the Corsair's are better than the monitors?) Don't even look at my pictures. Work in Progress. SLI Card tomorrow UPS re do cables.

 
 
BigJerry 1 point 5 hours ago

So where do you get the Dwood Pedestal

 
 
RyneSmith [7 Builds] 0 points 8 months ago

Damn.

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 4 points 8 months ago

Damn...those who tried to claim my build as theirs lol.

 
 
ZacDaMan72 [1 Build] 0 points 8 months ago

I'm surprised how you didn't go and use a Corsair SSD, haha!

 
 
joejoe69 [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

Nah, I like the Intel 520 that I have. Pretty reliable so far and boots quickly.
