Description

This is my build of rediculousness that I use to get a conversation started with customers looking for a gaming machine. I inform them that this is what others would try to sell them that they would never need, and we go from there.

It was fun to build, and really is insanely powerful, but there's no real reason for it other than to show off...which is exactly what it's for...to be a boutique rig.

The case and power supply are both ridiculously giant.

Update - Most parts moved to this build

You should of went with the EVGA supernova nex1500-Watt Power supply. Its OVER CLOCKABLE 150watts. Just kidding. Nice build though. I don't care if that is overkill. I want it. Just to say I have it.

I was surprised that the power supply was actually on the list as a tier 1 unit. I guess the Ultra X3 series were very reputable and well made, which can't be said for the X4 units which are 4th and 5th tier.

As a follow up on this, the power supply is still running strong after much abuse.

Yeah, would have liked a black powder coat finish on the inside as well, but I got the case dirt cheap for a full tower since they were discontinuing it. The shop is located in Cincinnati, OH.

Exactly the reaction my customers have. They then follow it up by saying something like, "OK, seriously, I need a computer."

How many years would a PC like this be able to play games at max settings before it starts having trouble?

While nothing in life is ever completely predictable, I'd likely warranty the unit for 5 years given the quality of the components. While the PSU is an Ultra make, and generally not known for quality, this specific unit is a tier 1 power supply, something I was surprised to discover. The only thing that concerned me about the original build (as pictured in an Ultra Case) was airflow, but that has been taken care of by moving the parts into an Antec 1200 case.

Also, while 3 cards makes it 3 times as likely one of them will fail, the triple SLI setup here is so overkill games barely put a load on the GPUs, even at Ultra settings.

Amazing build but wouldnt those cables all over the place restrict the air flow of the case fans.

The case has since been upgraded to an Antec 1200, which has far better cable management than the pictured case.

Thank you my mind can now rest knowing that beast pc doesn't have cables all over the place.

If it is just for showing off why such bad cable management?!? It looks bad more than it restricts airflow so I assume it will not look good for customers.

Oh thank Jesus. I couldn't sleep knowing that a computer like that was unorganized.

is this price GPU included ?

No, once products become unavailable the site doesn't price them anymore, so they aren't included in the cost.

Why did you get an HEC case for a showroom build? A Corsair case or something would have looked better imo.

It now resides in an Antec 1200

Would I be able to run this PC without 3 video cards and just have 2?

Do you have any fans or water coolers that you would recommend for this build? If I were to build this, I would run it most of the day, every day. So I would imagine I would need some sort of way to cool it down...

  • 78 months ago

I think a water cooler would be overkill for this build. The case fans provide good airflow and the CPU fan does an excellent job of keeping the processor cool. It is designed for up to 130W processors and the one in this build is only 80W.

The fans used in this build are as follows

2x Rosewill 120mm case fans (intake in the front exhaust in the rear) http://bit.ly/5QG3Gg

1x Cooler Master TX3 (CPU Fan) http://bit.ly/4mWRWa

Just remember, no matter what, it's still a top mount psu system....

Not anymore...if you read the comments you'd know it's in an Antec 1200 case now. So no matter what it is a top mount PSU system...unless it isn't... =)

Lol, my bad! I still like, but me and some friends always joke about top mounts!

Read a couple comments up, the cable management has been remedied since the build was done in a new case. The old case didn't allow for much management. The question remains, however, why such a crap attitude when posting comments?
