Bolts, I will start off by saying I'm glad that this is a real build, an extremely nice one at that, and I'm sorry for doubting it was real
Just due to the lack of description, the pictures mirroring the other forums and the amount of troll builds we've had here lately it was hard to believe, especially with the delay of your response.
I'm happy to say that I deleted all of my comments saying this was fake and would like to apologize. You have a great build and we are lucky to have had you share it with us!
+1 and many many more if I could to help reverse the damages
No harm done.. It's just the internet. People will be people. I really didn't expect anything when posting my build.. I didn't even know that there was such an uproar about it until someone PMed me on EVGA forums! We're all on this site for the same reason.. To see some great builds, get new ideas, and help others.... So in the future, don't be so quick to judge.
Owner of PCPartPicker here - I apologize for what you went through. I have purged all the votes on your build to give it a clean start. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
Wow! Thank you so much.. Unexpected.. Yet, greatly appreciated.
How is the headset?
I really like the headset.. Doesnt make my ears sweat. Not too heavy. Great sound. Good mic.
Hey man, I am sorry. I thought it was a fake build. :(
Hope you forgive me for accusing you of being a troll. :/
You have a very nice build! :)
Bolts if people didn't assume this was a troll post at the beginning I'm sure you'd have 100's of upvotes. This is one of the coolest looking builds I've seen in a while. I would say you deserve a repost with your updated pictures.
I second the motion of a repost. It will front page you, and that is a good place to get a lot of votes quickly. However, you are in the positive now and I'm sure it will continue to grow.
PS. If you post a lot on here, it shows people your build when they click by your name [X Build(s)], on your specific build. I many-a-times have clicked those, peeped an old build, and +1'ed them.
So I guess it's really up to you. I don't think many people would blame you if you pulled a delete/repost. :)
I actually don't really think that this is a troll build. The first picture shows a two-way sli and vengeance RAM, which conflicts with the parts list. However, upon closer examination, I personally think that that picture is meant to serve as a "before" picture. Then, after receiving a third gtx 780 and the dominator DIMMS, he took an "after" picture, which is the one with 3 780s and the dominators. May not be true, but it's another way to think about this whole thing I suppose.
I agree, it all does certainly sound suspicious. I don't see it as too harmful though. If there's someone who wants a build like this in this price range, this could be quite helpful to them actually :P
That is very true. I understand why troll builds are so unaccepted now.
Well considering the number of troll builds that have been posted lately from other sites and people claiming them as their own their is a huge reason to consider it as fake.
Luckily as I can see from his new pictures that is is real, I will gladly delete all my posts and apologize.
FYI build has been verified. Please see updated pictures.
Which deltas are these? A friend of mine has a delta that is 60 db loud but moves 242cfm. Great build. +1 EDIT #3: My apologies. This is real. EDIT #4: very very very nice benchmarking scores. Congrats on top 10 in pcpartpicker. (#4)
RAM isn't dominator either, looks like red vengance.
jk actually it looks like in the first picture it is vengeance but in the second/third it is dominator. Weird.
and in the 1st photo its a 2-way SLI, then on the 2nd and 3rd photos its a 3-way SLI
Your parts list seems a little off compared to the pics provided. Am I missing something?
Edit: Edit: Build confirmed as valid. Above question was answered by Gigglerump below.
Why all the down votes?!? Beast rig.
Hey dude,really nice build.I just don't know why were so many ppls comments were deleted (I guess for trash-talking) ,I don't see anything wrong on this build.Came here to see Phantom 820 case and I was so impressed when you showed them down in the comments who's the real boss :D
Anyways,deffinetly for an upvote :> See ya :)
no problems mate ;D
i think all the pictures are of the same build just with different upgrades because they are all using the same fans and board, the psu might have gotten changed out when he added the third gpu but whether or not this is the actual owner, i have no clue.
lol at all the deleted comments xD
I like the note,,, a traveling gnome would have been nice...lol you have my vote.
Wow nice rig!@ I got something to work towards!
More pics! Looks great, man!
Love this build, you lucked out on that overclock! I would have went with msi or asus graphics cards, but that's just my opinion. Great build overall.
Nzxt phantom 820. too sexy by all means
This is beautiful.
those things are soooo loud
This is so many doll hairs.
Are those high performance or quiet edition fans?
Did you keep the 200m fans in and put the rads below them? I wasn't sure if it was possible as it might hit something from the mobo,suppose it shouldn't bc its water cooled
Yes both 200mm fans are there.. and RAD is below the case frame..
So 200mm - CASE - 120mm - RAD - 120mm
thanks for the reply :) that's what I'm planning on doing,glad to know it works,how loud are the 200s?
Honestly, I couldn't tell you how loud/quiet they are.. Because I cant hear them over the 4,000RPM Delta fans in the rest of the case lol even when they're at half speed. :)
Why'd you get Deltas they're so loud!!! I have those in one of my builds and I immediately, upon trying them out, exchanged them for noctuas.
The PSU of the pics seems to be a Silverstone Strider Plus
lol it is very funny to see u go from troll to a anther troll
I don't like trolls. It's disrespectful to the community and totally pointless. I say to the trolls, get a job, then maybe you wont have so much free time and might actually be able to build something nice, like the rest of us.
