Description

With the coming if Ryzen, we felt AM3+ needed a good send off, and what better way to do it with a custom loop and a pre-production chassis for Halo-cc!

To see a build log of the computer, check out our youtube video at the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Wm_g1WQtqM&t=2s

The CPU I got for a smoking deal of $80, and each GPU was purchased for a mere $120 a piece. Note that I haven't edited the prices yet so what is listed does not reflect what I actually paid.

The Chassis was generously sent to us by Halo-cc after we saw their product at Dreamhack Austin 2016. Please check these guys out, message them and support them any way you can! We are working on getting them a go-fund-me account setup.

We felt an over-the-top custom loop was the only way to compliment this build.

Thanks for checkin us out!

That has got to be one of the weirdest cases... err... "chassis" I have ever seen. I mean... don't get me wrong... cool as hell... but also weird as hell.

+1 bye bye AMD3+

There are some kinks that have to be worked out, but the product is truly fantastic. I really hope we can help get this company off the ground.

NinjaSloth322 1 point 8 days ago

what is this cased called i am about to build a pc and this looks super sick

TechTested submitter 7 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

unfortunately the case is not in production. The company (halo-cc) sent us a product review. They are trying to get these into mass production but have run into financial issues. If you know any way to help them please feel free to do so.

TORCHO8 2 points 8 days ago

They should do it like NCASE did with the M1.

NinjaSloth322 1 point 8 days ago

This is the coolest case I have ever seen the second I saw it I knew i must have it. Do they have a kick starter or anything I can support I need this for my build its amazing

IcepickXIII 1 point 6 days ago

I wonder if them starting a Kickstarter would help? I mean, I've seen weirder things get funded on there, I'm sure something cool like this could get some traction!

Dear Lord... That is simply beautiful. +1 all the way, AM3+ or not lol

Nice heating system! Do those pipes connect to air ducts in your house during winter?

That is insane... A great send off... +1

nice build....i would recommend putting a glass box around to prevent dust

someta 3 Builds 2 points 8 days ago

that would look awesome....

Daiphelion 2 points 6 days ago

I've been planning a mod very similar to that... That... What do you even call that? It's not a 'case' as it's not enclosed, it's not a chassis as it's not any sort of frame or frame work. Umm, 'utilitarian display stand'? Whatever it is, it's amazing to look at :D

+1, and excellent work on getting those bargains.

datwoo816 1 Build 1 point 5 days ago

Would you call it a stand?

Daiphelion 1 point 20 hours ago

Actually, yes.
That seems reasonable, right up until that awkward moment you realise that it could then be said that you 'erected your computer'. Anything to do with the internet anywhere should not be so directly linked to 'erecting'...

RXWX 1 point 9 days ago

that's a lot of wh!!

Ada 1 point 9 days ago

Epic send off.

And +1 for the Millennium Falcon shirt.

Zarphos 1 point 9 days ago

Damn, those are some amazing prices.

Apach3 3 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

the loop is probably worth more than the rest of the system lol. all things considered, it's a fine sendoff indeed!

i like the testbed/chassis. are the lights RGB or static purple?

uberlizard 1 Build 1 point 9 days ago

a 480 millimeter rad?

OH WAIT. Thats a 9590? Bruh, thats not safe.

Nuckles_56 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

You need 1440mm of rad space just for the CPU alone (12x120mm rad)

uberlizard 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

exactly. Maybe a little more to be safe.

Chuck38 2 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

That is a really cool build. Love the case. If I had money I would consider looking into that case when/ if it's released.

Great build! +1

I want that case...

ShutYourTrap 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Yes

BananaDealer 1 point 8 days ago

Interesting... Can't help but think the rad should've been flipped however, giving a clear view of the CPU and mobo (otherwise blocked by the tubes, as in the photos)...

tyler_hargus 1 point 8 days ago

What is the case that is used?

Radox-0 3 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

Man, what a cool a unique case! Something very different. Great stuff! +1

Whered you get the cards for so cheap :/

skyrise 1 point 8 days ago

Awesome build!

That motherboard is gonna bottleneck the CPU though. You should've gone full blown ASRock Extreme9.

What is the cooler's brand?

NinjaSloth322 1 point 8 days ago

How did you get all that stuff for so cheap.

Varan56 1 point 7 days ago

I don't know what to say other than enjoy your furnace.

"Tired of having to vacuum your room? With the Halo-CC, all you need to do now is vacuum your test bench!" Cuz it's a dust magnet..get it? ya, nevermind, bad joke.

On a serious note, badass...bench? case? panel?
