Because then you know it's a Noctua haha. They are quality.
Would I be wrong by saying that the featured spot may be coming?
Amazing work on a lovely retro piece of art. Very nice choice on the switch style. You could add a dim white illumination in there since it has glass, and hide the LED strip right below the plexiglass border.
I enjoyed seeing the creative process a lot, specially the diagram ^
NB: picture 33... don't forget protective equipment for safety's sake :) We want to see more builds in the future, and you might want both hands for that.
NB 2: OMG Vertical Monitor! You're a hipster m8. Also are those your high-school grades? :D
Anyways, keen on the build. Deserves a Feature.
Picture 123456 Nice painting job.
Picture 7 HOLY PANTS SWEET BUTTON AND GAUGE 0.o
Absolutely fantastic case, I love that kind of detail. The build is also very cleanly executed, no wonder you got that featured spot!
I'm waiting eagerly! Please! ;D
Erm the pictures don't show much of the build tbh x)
Such a show-off... this is an absolutely gorgeous built <3 Can't imagine how neat your home is.
I see that you live near a forest? Lucky you to have the sound of nature so close :D
I see a lot of fans on pic 55, I wonder if they could fit your desk lmao.
Very nice work sir, c'est trop beau O.o
Phanteks Evolv case?
Can't go wrong m8 :D
So reckless, this man clearly enjoys life to the extreme
Hmmm... Legos, from my experience, can be very tough. Very, very tough. There are very interesting pieces on the store, and if you mix Lego Technic with classical "vanilla" legos you could get a very solid case, even more sturdy than some cheap cases out there ^
" If I want it to lie flat like a 4u server chassis however, that would be a bit easier."
It would make sense to make it flat indeed. Many PCs are boring towers, but with legos, hell make it a cube! The shape is anything you need :P
Suddenly this makes me want to do a Lego PC case haha. But hey, don't have the budget nor the need for it at the moment.
Clean as **** Love it.
Ah it's from the accommodation I'm at. It's custom made from them when they made the student accommodation building. ): Sorry.
Your next upgrade in a few years must be a full-on proper Lego case. Make a model on the lego website and order the pieces, and make a case slicker than a Phanteks :D
I LOVE Legos, hence I love this build :) The color assembly and improper junctions in a few bits makes me cringe, but hey I never though a Lego PC case could be done.
Or tbh I never even though about it? :O
Oh and... congrats for the FEATURED spot obviously (;
Ha yeah, my stock X-Plane folder is worth 70GB, add to that many others in plugins and add-on planes :P
It's a heavy game.
Fun Fact: Your machine would have a harder time running X-Plane compared to the classic 4 cores i7 6700 due to the lower single-core performance. #Single-Threaded Games
Actually green is a soothing color for the eye :D
Needs a picture of the desk setup added! :D I want to see the pc in context with the keyboard.
Love the window snapchat haha
Amazing beast. Maybe time to spend a few bucks into the desktop setup & cable management? You won't believe how important putting your machine into a virtual pedestal is. Large desk, led backlight, all cables hidden, and you'll enjoy sitting at your desk so much you'll even sleep there :D
I actually went into Computer Management > Disk Management > Selected the SSD as Boot Drive.
As soon as I saw it, I said "f**** it" to the case I originally planned on using and on which I had mounted the computer x)
I'm using these: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/small-cable-tie-base-black-100-pack-sj14q with zip ties\Glad you love it :)
Wow, just decided to randomly check out the comments and I am delighted to see that you guys like it. It's so motivating!
" Microsoft Software Engineer." Please ask Microsoft to update the awful retro-looking yellowish folder icons of Windows 10 then :D You know what I'm talkin' bout'.
Amazing build mate!
Sincerely well done. Never been keen on the Noctua look, but by committing to it by even customizing the case, this looks amazing.
I am currently switching to the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv case. Its an administrative nightmare, but the NZXT plastic is killing the overall look /:
And if you have an Apple account you can use the iWork Suite via iCloud. Not sure if you must already own an Apple device though in order to activate this perk. Works like a charm.
So. Much. Storage. x)
Shame that the PSU is only bronze, but pretty nice build. Good choice on the non-OEM OS, since it is much more versatile when it comes to upgrading a rig in the future. Nice CPU Cooler too.
If I may, ask, what is your current airflow and with which fans?
Also, you did input a CPU clock rate of 4.4 GHz in the specs bellow the component list. Did you OC it one full GHz, or is it a typo?
PS: You paid for Microsoft Office? So much faith (;
Well... Time to upgrade your display now hehe :P
My laptop of choice is the MacBook pro. It doesn't overheat, works great for video editing and 3D, and even support some games such as X-Plane Flight Simulator.
However, my "tower" pc will be a custom built one with Windows 10 (Ugh I'm not against windows but apparently they really screwed up with their security in this OS, though) :) It comes back cheaper and better for me in this case.
If you're not a heavy storage user then you're right :P It might be me then, coz I have 1TB of storage used in an external HDD atm lol
You could add a cheap 2TB HDD for archived storage.
I am ordering the components tomorrow before it's too late.
Any final thoughts?
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Can't a "Master" build guide be used? The core components are still the same, and a Guide explaining everything with brand particularities should be doable with the help of all the community. Just keep on enhancing and modifying THE guide that gets a newbie through the building process :)
Thanks for the confirmation :)
Here is the build once again. I went for similar brands where I could to avoid incompatibility.
Ah, nicely spotted once again /:
I'll see what I find and I'll post a new build in an hour or so. Do you know if my Cooler choice is ok for the case I chosed?
Your link says this:
Corsair CMK128GX4M8B3000C16 DDR4 3000 3000 Samsung 1.35V DS 16GB
It seems to support it :)
However, the Gigabyte MoBo does not and PCPartPicker did not know that :O Thanks for spotting it! That was a close call :P I'll find different ram bars then.
Are you sure? :O The PcPartPicker doesn't highlight any incompatibility issue for me. If yes, well dang it I'll have to modify the list again!
I can't find a way to edit this comment, sorry for "bumping" this thread.
I just have a last question to add: Are all the cables and connectics to link the MoBo ports included? Or do I need anything else than a screwer and an anti-static wristband to assemble the hardware listed above?
As Frankybuild said, you are missing the Power Supply, but also:
-the Case (You don't wanna leave all this stuff exposed to dust)
-the Operating System (unless you already have it?)
I guess that you already have mouse, keyboard and screen, but the PSU and case cannot be ignored :)
Your Mobo supports DDR3-1066 / 1333 / 1600 / 1866 / 2000 RAM bars. If you want your build to be future-proof you might want higher frequencies (3000 MHz) and DDR4 supported though.
Have a good day!
I'm kinda new to this, but I notice that your Power Supply Unit is of 1200W, when your build is of 375W. That's overkill, even if you plan to upgrade later. What I was advised on another post for this same power consumption is 750W.
"The newer RMx and RMi are excellent choices. The 750 watts RMi is at 99 bucks on amazon. It is an excellent deal
Have a good day :)
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I am going for 32GB as I plan to use some RAM-intensive programs, and simultaneously sometimes (e.g. Premiere Pro and After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator...). I also changed the cooling for the H115i, and the PSU for the RMx series (650W). I went for a Full Tower case: does the CPU Cooler fit? (PCPartPicker doesnt show incompatibilities though, but I'd rather double-check). I really like the NZTX Casing look, it's very dynamic.
Have I forgotten anything in my build or is it better now? :)
Here is my modified build:
Thanks in advance,
With that budget, just get a bad boy from the available stores :) Unless you really want to build it yourself of course, but at 7000$ It's far easier to buy a very good one prebuilt. I'd advice Falcon Northwest. https://www.falcon-nw.com/
Have a great day (;
