Description

Roughly every four years or so I do a massive overhaul of my PC. It's mostly a new build with a few drives and peripherals crossing over. In 2010 I made a rig out of most of the parts in my previous build Old Reliable. In 2014, I built The Second Wife. Now, you can find me engrossed in The Darkness.

I use my PC for...well for everything. Gaming, recording/streaming gameplay, writing professionally, budgeting, multimedia/home theater, etc. As such, it has a bunch of stuff that doesn't generally cater to certain crowds. It's too big and bulky to be a normal HTPC, it's way too powerful for what anyone needs for writing, and it has far more storage than most gamers would bother putting into a gaming machine. But it serves all of these functions for me.

I thought this was one of those builds that people say that they are going to buy but never do. But i was really surprised that you went through with it... Congrats. I love this build

Nice build! How is the airflow in that case? And how are your temps? I like the look of that case and am strongly considering it for a build I have planned, just haven’t really heard much about it’s performance.

The airflow is great. Each glass side panel is actually offset from the case by about half an inch all around in addition to the ventilation on the bottom side. The case has a raised design on the bottom that puts the bottom ventilation surface about two inches from whatever you're setting it on. Basically, there are openings for flow on every side of the case despite the tempered glass design and the dust filters. I've been moving TB's of data for days now uninterrupted, CPU temp is 30C.

Excellent. So many recently released cases put all the emphasis strictly on form and neglect function. Thank you very much for your reply, you have greatly helped with my decision!

I would literally have to give in to The Darkness to afford something like this, clean build! :)

Great job from the MOBO choice to the new Corsair AIO to the SLI FTW3 graphics cards you killed it on this one this is how you do an 8700K Build KenpoJujitsu3.

Thank you. Also, that is a SLICK Threadripper build you posted.

You have a nice computer there! If you play GTA V, in how many fps do you play that and in which resolution?

This isn't my video, but DudeRandom is running a system almost identical to mine in this video and our performance is very close to each other (I tend to have slightly higher frames than him).

Basically, over 100fps at 4K most of the time. But I tend to play 1440p most of the time for the increased fluidity.

I do not know if it is a big problem for you, but I would be satisfied with 100fps on 4K.
