Description

Hey peoples! I am an American who was lucky enough to build a computer for AMD Russia's unveiling of the Threadripper and ASUS X399 launch. All of the components were put into one of my BadVolf cases that I build. Now that it is built, I use it for pretty much content creation, but it can be used for about anything. The case LED's are integrated with the ASUS AURA system. For a video of how that actually looks, check it out synced to music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3cVFBfpEpU

PS - I build these cases here in Russia, not the Untied States, so sorry my fellow Americans. Perhaps I will start building them in the USA next year.

Oh yeah, I totally forgot... I built in wireless mobile fast charging on the left desk rail. Just set down your Samsung and it gets plenty of juice.

Damn this pretty overkill! I wish I could learn how to make on of these!

What an amazing build, what do you think of the ML series fans? I have heard that they are loud and am nervous about including them in a build. Any experience good or bad will help.

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

From my experience, I can hardly hear them. What you have to remember though, is due to the wide, flat configuration of the case, hot air is evacuated very easily and fast. In fact, my Threadripper 1950X running at 100 % never gets above 60c. On the other desk, I am running two 1080ti Strix with water cooling and again, hearing the fans is just about impossible.

+1!!! That 's a very nice desk/case!

You also made a small mistake in the case name on the part list: BadVold WarWolf... ;-)

I'm super jealous of the storage!! I'd like to see more photos from under the hood.

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

One more set of photos at the end... this is from the first desk I did... it's running two ASUS 1080 TI Strix with water cooling and an Intel i7 5960X Processor on an ASUS X99 motherboard with 32 gigs of ram... it is water cooled. The first photo is the system at idle - 26c... and after a 45 minute render... with one minute to go (so rendering for 44 minutes) with almost 100% SLI GPU usage... I never break 39c. This desk can actually hold three radiators... don't know why you would want to, but you could. At the moment, there are two 480 radiators, two pumps and four reservoirs. One radiator, pump and two reservoirs is for the video cards and the other radiator and pump and reservoirs are for the processor. This is actually my work machine and what I do my designing on... my rendering, too. I can hear the fans in this one... it's definitely not noisy. And even after a long render, they don't get any noisier. The airflow is very efficient.

That's pretty insane!!!! Awesome job!!!

Strange, I changed the name because I noticed it... I will have to look again. Thanks! I will send more photos for you... I am currently working on an upgraded version of the WarWolf that will ahve 8 3.5" hot swap bays and 4 2.5" hot swap bays. Personally, I love my big fat 3.5" hard drives... I pool them together using Windows Storage Spaces and I am using one of the 2.5" SSD's for fast tiered storage. It's so crazy fast... way faster than the motherboard raid... and much safer, also. I will send some additional photos for you. In the mean time, I will post photos from the last desk I did... it REALLY looks awesome insude, but doesn't have the LED illuminated acrylic on the legs...

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I added a photo from the last computer... I will do a detailed build guide on it.

Jerome54 2 points 14 months ago

Thanks for the feedback and the photo! It looks awesome!

Can't wait to see the hot swappable bays version.
Keep up the good work!!

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

I added some renders of the smaller version I am designing at the moment... you can see the hot swap trays in the back. I know the back isn't the most convenient, but it's a real difficult challenge trying to make them work out in the front because of the cable management system.

Jerome54 1 point 14 months ago

That looks very nice!

The back may not be the most convenient, but IMHO it would ruin the looks on the front.
Otherwise try to put them on the sides (accessible from the top). ;-)

Prepare for some months in cs go and s.t.a.l.k.e.r

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I have no idea what that means. Lol. Are those games?

Chickennugger 1 point 14 months ago

Yep

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Sorry to sound stupid... but I've never actually played a computer game.

Awesome build! It must use a lot of power though

skyrise 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Nice build, but why didn't you do a full AMD - with RX Vega 64 Crossfire?

It would have been awesome paired with the liquid loop and the Threadripper.

Dugn8r submitter 6 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Because it had to be a workstation card. Well I could have done two of them in crossfire, AMD only had one demo to put in there. Unfortunately I got to work with what I get.
