Description

This is a rig update from the original Monster build. I went with the Corsair Air 540 white case as it fit my new desktop setup. I game quite a bit as well as produce videos for YouTube. I added 2 Noctua Nf f12 Industrial fans pulling from the top to exhaust hot air. Dropped my temps 2 degrees C. I also added CableMod custom extensions to clean up the wiring. I added Mayhems purple dye to the radiator res but it didn't change the color in the window? Now that 980Ti prices have dropped and other one in SLI is in the near future. Let me know your thoughts?

First of all, great build! I just think that the hard drive on the bottom kind of gets rid of the wow factor, but that's just my opinion. Great Job!

Yea, the air 540 only has 3.5 HDD space on the floor. The back side has room for 4 ssd's. At some point it would be nice to have my 4GB off storage back there.

This company sells some pretty nice looking mid-plates for the Air 540 that covers up the bottom 3.5 inch drives. I've seen them in a few builds and they really add a lot to the aesthetics!

That's awesome. I have an acrylic fabricator here in town that made my air box for the 780T case. I think ill ask him if he can fab me something similar. Thanks!

Excellent score, I just got 17,554 with a 5820k and 980ti, I could not get more.

I played with it an entire weekend and found it was the physics score that really pushed my score. I did a individual core overclock and ended at 4.5ghz. I also pushed the GPU to 1522mhz with the memory at 8000!!
