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:

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!

I just don't think your radiator is long enough XD

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

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

DeltaForceGM01 2 points 4 months ago

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

someta 3 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

that would look awesome....

Daiphelion 2 points 4 months 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 point 4 months ago

Would you call it a stand?

Daiphelion 1 point 4 months 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'...

Ada 1 point 4 months ago

Epic send off.

And +1 for the Millennium Falcon shirt.

Pixal 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Wow

That is an interesting case

Zarphos 1 point 4 months ago

Damn, those are some amazing prices.

Apach3 3 Builds 1 point 4 months 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 4 months ago

a 480 millimeter rad?

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

Nuckles_56 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

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

uberlizard 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

exactly. Maybe a little more to be safe.

A case like that needs custom cables.

Stereotypical_Whale 1 point 4 months ago

I would definitely get some gpu blocks.

Chuck38 2 Builds 1 point 4 months 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

Fleetleader101 1 point 4 months ago

I want that case...

ShutYourTrap 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yes

BananaDealer 1 point 4 months 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 4 months ago

What is the case that is used?

Radox-0 3 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

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

XFacility 1 point 4 months ago

Now that's a fancy case xD +Rep

chickenman10121 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Great build, looks amazing but if it was hard tubing. Instant orgasm.

Mariomash 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Whered you get the cards for so cheap :/

skyrise 1 point 4 months 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 4 months ago

How did you get all that stuff for so cheap.

Varan56 1 point 4 months ago

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

LonghornAlamo2040 1 point 4 months ago

khmergod 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

"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?

DasBassDropz 1 point 4 months ago

i dont know what this is

But i like it.

Vince_aviator 1 point 4 months ago

Probably the coolest build I've seen

danownsu25 1 point 4 months ago

sexy but the gpu sag is concerning

Nicker950_HD 1 point 2 months ago

Radiator not big enough, need a 720mm radiator and another 280mm one for each graphics card.

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.

kinks

NinjaSloth322 1 point 4 months ago

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

TechTested submitter 7 Builds 1 point 4 months 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 4 months ago

They should do it like NCASE did with the M1.

NinjaSloth322 1 point 4 months 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 4 months 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!
