Yes.

Thanks for the confidence in my GPU choice Nikolai. For the PSU I used PC Part Picker's power estimations, and the max power required was still 120 watts below what I got, so I assumed I was safe. The only reason I think I may have undershot the power was not anticipating later expansions such as adding another graphics card, but I highly doubt he'll need that.

It's really smooth! Works perfectly!

A Nikon coolpix LP120 I think.

Ahh, thanks for the tip! Was looking for a GPU with 4gb of memory, and that was by far the cheapest I found on a brief search, so I believed I was getting a deal!

I'm using custom water cooling for the CPU, and don't have an optical drive. I use an external one when I need.

I think you should choose either one or the other. Either system will work fine if you choose the right product, but it will be a hassle to change once the rig is built and operating.

Don't do anything too outrageous, or else you'll get tired of looking at it after years and years! Keep it cool, and keep it simple!

To busy to build pc's for people right now, sorry.

Thanks, it turned out close to 3000$ at the time I built it.

It really depends on how much you want it. Yes, it looks awesome, and if you do things that make your cpu temps shoot up (overclocking), than it may be worth it.

Oliver's Completed Build: "Magnum": Watercooled 350D Haswell Build

It was a while ago, but I recall it was around 700-800 dollars, and I got them from performancepcs.net

Hi olord, The styroform looking cloth I think you're looking at is actually just paper towls. I put them in when I launched up the computer for the first time, so in case any part of the water loop failed, it would absorb the water instead of getting all over the electronic components.

Oliver's Completed Build: "Magnum": Watercooled 350D Haswell Build

Oliver submitter 5 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

At the time, it was approx. 1000 dollars.

Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, it's still running blazing fast for my needs, so I don't have a reason to spend more money and upgrade it. The money will be better spent on a laptop for college, yay...

That's true, but you have to take into account that a 4.3GHz Intel processor may be just as physically fast as a 5 GHz AMD processor. It has to do with how much each processor does with each cycle, so even though AMD has bigger numbers, it's better to test the actual performance of the processor than just what it says the speed is, because they're honestly very hard to compare.

Sounds good! Just remember that 2TB is 2000 GB, that's a LOT of games, and money spent on games... yet it's always better to have too much storage than too little!

Oliver's Completed Build: "Magnum": Watercooled 350D Haswell Build

Oliver submitter 5 Builds 1 point 49 months ago

It looks good for the most part to me, just be sure to confirm that you actually will use 3 TB of HD space, most people don't use more than one, so if money is important to you, I'd say think about that. Looks awesome otherwise! :)

If you have intel Ivy bridge, it's not worth it, sandy bridge, or anything before that, the update is worth it. :)

How's the keyboard??? For such an expensive non mechanical, there must be SOMETHING good about it...

Well, I have to say my build is working very well!!! If you're looking to save some money though, I would bend the rigid acrylic tubing instead of buying a crap load of fittings to make it all work. I built this before bending acrylic really was a viable and easy option, so it was much more expensive sadly...

Oliver's Completed Build: "Magnum": Watercooled 350D Haswell Build

It is Mayhems Pastel White coolant, with all bitspower fittings. What's the plan for your build look like?

I got the 770 right when it came out, so the 4gb version wasn't released yet.

You see, no one believes you would spend 3000 dollars on GPU's until you show them pics of them , that's why they all want them...

It does take getting used to, warning, but it's WWWAAAAYYYYY nice when you get used to it.

Have you considered custom sleeving them yourself? That's what I did, nothing too terrible.

Forum Topic "Feature to show if a user is Online/Offline?"

Not at this time, just ideas and dreams... any chance of just friends though? Some of the benefits may include seeing their posts, viewing there builds + karma.

Forum Topic "Feature to show if a user is Online/Offline?"

Oliver 5 Builds 2 points 54 months ago

I think this would benefit even more with a feature that allowed some sort of "friends" and live chat with them.
