The machine is for gaming and video editing. The biggest problem for me was the wire management but with the 800D it was fairly easy.
Please note the 800D was bought for water cooling which is the next step so the phanteks is in the interim.
I look through these builds all the time. They give me motivation to get a job. nice build!
I appreciate the kind words and i'm glad you have motivation to get a job...i'm assuming you're still in school? Focus on that the compensation will follow (yes i know its the cliche thing to say, but its true)
Yup, im a junior in highschool. Thanks for the advice!
Nice build! Always rewarding to have two doggy techs on hand to help you.
They're great! The chi (Cupcake) was scared of all the boxes and parts whilst the boston (Hugo) kept wanting to lick all of the parts..SMH
u no haz ssd =(
What he said. An SSD, any size, is a must for any PC nowadays.
i wouldn't say a MUST buuuut it's pretty good to have :D
Well, you know, you can't really complain about something close to a 5 second boot time. :3
you could when others have 5s boot times and you have 20s because your motherboard's bios is so slow :P
I don't see where it's a must. If you're THAT impatient that you have to wait more than 5 seconds, then you probably have a serious issue.
You do realise that boot time is due to the HDD, not the bios? Dear me.
looove this build... wish it had an ssd. but im sure that will come along soon
I thought that was the 900D at first, I knew it was too good to be true haha
Yea that 900D looks great! But the 800D looks nice too.

Bloody hell though, that this is monstrous!
Even in EATX board is going to look like a post-it in that thing.
Well, it's not really for an EATX, it's more for dual CPU boards, like the SRX xD
Though aren't those for servers primarily?
Yea Corsair just sent out an email that their website will be selling limited number next week. But it is first come first served.
Great build, but how about an SSD?
I'm looking to get one in the future, however, i held off on it since I didn't feel the need for it. I'm sure its a definite in the coming months.
i really can't argue with this build. very clean cable management, very appropriate parts... the only gripe is the lack of an SSD, especially at this kind of a budget.
Great build, mate. An SSD would've been trendy, but it's absence is nothing to cry about, contrary to the belief of several other posters.
is that psu good? pretty cheap psu
Boston Terrier... best dog you can get
...if you like large rats.
They're much bigger than a rat dog. Plus they're usually calm.
Just so you know, the Boston Terrier is the black and white one.
is there a motherboard under that????? awesome build
We all know that a dog give 100000000% BOOST Right????
mother of sexiness!
Very clean build! Good luck with the watercooling loop ;)
Very clean inside. I like it.
The Corsair 800d makes the board look so small. Looks like a wonderful build.
That's what I thought too! When I posted this build on Tomshardware people were confused and asked me why I put an mATX in an 800D!?!
Little did they know that it is an eATX that is dwarfed by the HUGE case. Lots of room for my water cooling plans!
Amazing cable management, cute dogs and you need a ssd.
Fairly clean. Was wondering about the case until I saw your loop plans.
As has already been beaten into the ground (especially with a single monitor) I think I a single GPU and an SSD would've given you more noticeable oomph for now -- especially if you got one big enough (or two in RAID 0 big enough) to store working files for video edits.
Liiiike! But you sir need an SSD!
Oh my god this is beautiful.
Thanks mate..i'm glad you like it :)
At some point you may be interested in grabbing some of Corsair's individually sleeved cables to finish the aesthetics off, you can get them in red, black, blue and white and they look absolutely fantastic. As it is, the current cables look good anyway but it's an extra touch to perfect it and with a $2000+ build, why not? Maybe some red ones to go with the ROG colour scheme :) Here's a link: http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/psu-accessories-1.html?p=2
Ordered the red ones! What I found odd was that the 24-pin is sold separate? Why?
I'm not too sure, probably Corsair trying to get a bit more money out of you! :D
Woah. Best build on the site in a while! I love the color scheme and the professionalization of your pictures!
Thanks! I used a D7000 with a 50mm 1.8 to get the bokeh-licious shots. More to come once I find time and my wife lets me keep spending money :P
Wow! So many comments...thank you for the feedback! Made my day reading through all of your awesome comments!
I plan on getting an SSD in the future, as for now I didn't see it as a need so I skipped it. However, i'm sure the need will creep up slowly in the coming months.
I really want to do the sleeved wires since it makes everything look so much cleaner.....not sure which color to go with...RED or WHITE?
With that, I'd go with red. :P
It looks clean beautiful and very edgy , good job =)
how are you liking those 670 in SLI? i am going to do a similar build with triple monitors running racing games hopefully in max resolution
Does the ram need to be low profile in order to fit under the phanteks cooler?
Got a great laugh from the dogs.
Nice pictures of the build, forgot to comment on your build bro. Now you have 50:)
SLI isn't really worth it. Someone came to Freenode ##hardware and asked:
[20:38:00] <TypingGenius> http://pcpartpicker.com/b/AX0 what's unnecessary here?
The answer is the second GTX670. Buy a 770 or a 760; that Maximus motherboard is also unbelievably overpriced. And for a gaming machine, why an i7? And why Ivy Bridge?
For that matter, where is the SSD? (as others have said), and what's up with that Phanteks HSF? Windows 7 Home Premium?
Overall, it's not great. Come back to ##hardware and hang around more than a few minutes if you'd like some advice.
Awesome build but how do the 2 dogs increase performance? Unless they run on a wheel to power your internal fans?
If you would have got one 680 instead of 2 670s you could have gotten that ssd everybody is bashing you for not getting. ha
I thought about that route until I did some digging around and put together a basic cost/ performance ratio. The 680 just wasn't cost effective for what you got. On the other hand the 670's OC'd really outperform the 680 (Please note: this is speaking from a price/ performance ratio ONLY)
What he said.
