Do you take offers to commission one of these?

Graph360's Completed Build: The Maverick V 2.5 Compact Power

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

Hey, nice build! Love to see experienced bends in itx builds, there so appealing.

How are those are fans? Interested on attaching one to a downward airflow tower cooler because they look nice and I could use a performance upgrade. (About to get an i7)

How loud are they, and are they good for static pressure?

Thanks! I guess it doesn't really matter which angle, more is better IMO! :D

Wow this looks stunning! I really appreciate the white GeForce led. Subtle, but not too. Do you think you could post a few more photos please?

Blacksm1le's Completed Build: ROG Enthusiast

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

This is a really great build looks like it should be featured! I love the poseidon cards, they're very versatile (and not too long, either!) My only concern is if you're waiting for HBM2 then you might be waiting a long, long time for it to reach the consumer side of the spectrum due to its high price. The P100 Tesla was quoted by some sites to be up to $12k, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt. Or a bucket. TL;DR HBM2 is probably not going to be available for the 1080 ti or even into 2017.

Thanks again for sharing your awesome build!

Oh that's awesome! I recently got involved in audiophile stuff so it piqued my interest.

muckyduck_ 1 Build 2 points 34 months ago

Awesome looking build, and I like the pear! :D I admire your setup a lot, and I was wondering if that orange box thingy was a flight sim controller or a stereo amp/ DAC Again love the build, and the case too!

Awesome! Those three monitors look beastly to say the least! Excellent job on that build, and tell your friend how great a desk that is for me, it's got such a gorgeous finish

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Good idea! I might just try that. A great way to get one of my infamous chairs is in any dump anywhere

Or your nan's house

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

I've actually seriously considered saving money for a 480, if I show any interest in some of the upcoming AAA titles at all. It's a really interesting card

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Yeah, I know right? Maybe I should ditch the chair so I'm not too good! Thanks for taking the time to make a comment!

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Yeah I know, right? Kinda wishing I waited so that I could get the 970 for about the same price of the 960

Thank you! It was really fun doing all this, thanks for your support!

Thanks! As you can imagine it was easy to come by!

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Nice. If I were you I'd wait for a Polaris roadmap in case a higher-level GPU outperforms 390x crossfire, which would yield lower thermal output and less watt consumption, even though that doesn't seem to be an issue with that PSU :D

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

It is quite lovely. Seasonic makes excellent PSU's

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

True

muckyduck_'s Completed Build: Got the gaming chair, now I need a PC

muckyduck_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Thanks for your input, this is very useful.

I got a Z97 motherboard because I plan to upgrade to an i5 4690k like you said, and I have already begun saving for it.

I kept my eye on the H7 and it was a close second, but I was concerned that I would not have clearance for the cooler, and the s524 was considerably quieter on paper.

It turns out (like you said) that the ram was $1-2 cheaper, so it made sense not only in performance, but also fiscally.

I've never really recorded temps but it's never throttled, which is what really counts. (IMO) The PC sits under a window so in winter time it cools very effectively from the outside :P

Yeah, jonnyguru has great informative reviews. I have no concern because if it lasts up to 3 years then I got my money's worth as far as I can tell.

Thanks man, it's been a lot of fun building the PC and posting it to the site!

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

So you do have Linux installed to the m.2 drive then.

FitEyes's Completed Build: My highest end build ever turned out to be my slowest PC :-(

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Dumb question but is that m.2 ssd set as C: boot drive, and if so are its read/write speeds checking out? It's possible you have a bum ssd or rotten m.2 slot on that board.

Relaxing's Completed Build: FALLOUT 4 NUKE PC

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Wow, this looks way better than Luke's (salt to the earth)

I love the way you made the fan on top oriented, and even though you custom made the case it looks and seems to work a lot better!! The paint job matches the style exactly, and looks really well done. My only question is why use 960 instead of 970? I believe Asus offers a smaller card in 970 fashion. I bet the base of this one works too...

Nice build! The case looks even cleaner inside than out, and it's a great looking case.

I admire your setup, which desk is that?

pmrugel's Completed Build: MSI Godlike Gaming Build

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

Hey, I'm looking to buy this case, but the bare aluminum is a pretty big turnoff... Any chance you could tell me where you got it powder coated? Or did you do it yourself?

muckyduck_ 1 Build 2 points 39 months ago

Looks amazing, though I'm questioning why you need that CPU. ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡~)

In the future, you probably won't need even a 1000W PSU. Still looks great, and that desk looks awesome.

pmrugel's Completed Build: MSI Godlike Gaming Build

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 39 months ago

Check out Singularity Computers (shameless plug) on YouTube and google. He's the best for water cooling. Nice rig mate.

JDBTree's Completed Build: The Stig

muckyduck_ 1 Build 2 points 39 months ago

Absolutely love that mouse, and I have been using it for almost 8 years now. Great for scrolling through excel, and functions well in-game. I'm disappointed that very few people use it nowadays...

MaliciousKen's Completed Build: The Malicious

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

The 970 is a great card, hands down. (Best mid-level card in my opinion)

I forgot about DirectX 12's use of GDDR5 in SLI, which is a fancy way of copying what you said. :P

I heard something about new nvidia SLI AND AMD Crossfire usage coming up in a DirectX 12 patch, though I (regretfully) dunno where I read that from.

I was only concerned about the 970 vs 980 ti because if the DX12 software doesn't turn out great, the 970's might turn out to be a serious bottleneck, emphasis on if.

Nice motherboard btw.
