Description

I built this for gaming. I'm a noob and haven't done it in years but this was fun and easy and this machine is rockin'!

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

  • 77 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!

It's nice, but unfortunately they never did anything neat with the LCD part for the games I play :(

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?

  • 77 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.

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

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.

  • 76 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.

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.

Sorry I'm only seeing this now, but I've loved this computer for 3 years. It runs like a champion.

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!!!

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

If I use this case again i'm getting the mesh side.

I understand. Much easier to breath and works as a filter element.

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

  • 39 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes I cut 2 holes behind the desk for 230mm fans that blow out all day and night :) It's cooler in the desk than in my room around me.

Awesome. I ended up building my youngest a desk with the pc in the lowest drawer and putting our xbox in a chest of drawers in our livibg room with fans in the wood to keep them cool. My sons pc on a desk has both inlet and outlet fans, but after the xbox I think I could have gotten away with just the rear outlets. Great mod. Thanks for posting this

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 :)

It was too hot without those holes, the video card was burning up.

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.

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!
