This has been a continuous build over a few months now. I decided to post it, because it is entering its final stages. This machine is honestly a beast through and through. Hope you guys enjoy! Please do not hesitate to ask any questions in the comments!
You will notice that the 2 Kraken G10s and the 2 H90s are not yet installed. That is because the second Kraken G10 has not arrived yet. As some of you might know, NZXT was bombed with preorders for this item because it was the first of its kind which has been mass manufactured. So, my second order is delayed even more now. Once I install the rest of the parts, I will update this with new pictures.
Also, for some reason, on the parts list, the PSU is labeled just an AX1200. I actually have an AX1200i. Corsair Link is amazing with this product. You can monitor all of the voltages for each device and the total power out and power in for the whole system.
The only reason why I rated the graphics cards 4/5 is because they become unstable under certain overclocks and it is kind of annoying but other than that they are great.
4/15/14 Edit: The Krakens have arrived and have been installed! Pictures to come tonight!
4/28/14 Edit: Kraken pictures are finally up! Sorry for the delay.
6/03/14 Edit: New ram has been installed. Upgraded from my 4x4 Mushkin Kit to a 2x8 Crucial Ballistix Elite Kit. CL9 9-9-9-27 Blazing fast! I plan to get another kit soon to total 32 gigs.
7/23/14 Edit: Posted a picture of the 6 display setup. :)
I have decided to get rid of my 7970's. The driver support was just terrible. My computer would crash every time I started it because of the ATI driver. Also, whenever I would start to render a game, all the screens would shut off. I have decided to switch to nVIDIA so we will see how this goes. I have heard from multiple people that the Gigabyte G1 970 is a beast in every aspect. Sadly, I have not gotten to try out the card for myself yet because my motherboard somehow got fried. So, I am waiting on Asus to ship me a replacement.
Also, I have decided to go back to three monitors (I have sold the other three). It was just a big hassle to move them every three months when I change locations for school. Around December, I might pick up a 4K GSync monitor to replace the middle monitor.
So plenty of upgrades in the near future!
