Description

This Revamp is part of my first ever build which can be viewed here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/9mnnTW

So even though I was over the moon with the first draft of The Joker Build, There were a few area's I wasn't happy about. Firstly I wanted to redo the PSU Shroud. On the Original, The Purple Joker face was half covered when I put on the Side panel. An oversight in sizing by me. Also I wasn't happy with the cuts that I made to accommodate the the wires from the motherboard. So that got redone!

Secondly I wanted to see how far I could take the modding. The Corsair 750D is a big case (Bigger than I needed really) and left a huge empty gap on the right side of the pc so i wanted to find a way that I could cover it whilst keeping with the theme.

Thirdly the front of the 750D looked plain and I really wanted this pc to stand out from the crowd. The Joker theme is quite common and I wanted to set apart my build from the rest. This led me to the concept of building a cell (Arkham Asylum themed) where the CD ROM drives originally were and have a custom ON button. I also wanted to mod the front panel and have that stand out a little more.

Im really happy with the outcome! came out I had imagined, Of course there are area's that could have been done better with Hindsight but these are lessons I wouldn't have learned unless I made the mistakes in the first place.

The last thing I need to replace - is the plastic window on the side panel. No matter how much I cleaned and polished it's picked up a few scratches and gone slightly misty (which i guess is just wear and tear) The annoying thing about it, is it makes the PC looked a little dirty in the pictures!

Let me know what you think, If you prefer the old build or the new one!

This is too cool to be on the floor.

Adrew24 1 Build 8 points 13 days ago

there are many joker-themed builds out there... but I have to say this is with out a doubt one of the best ones! Amazing job!

mrvideo117 1 Build 5 points 13 days ago

Can I hire you to customize my next rig?

Radox-0 4 Builds 3 points 13 days ago

Now that's cool. Something very different and creative. Very nice work and an easy +1!

The prices of these video cards makes my wallet hide in terror.

DankParsley 0 points 7 days ago

Don't worry, they should come down soon. Ethereum and other coins have been in constant free-fall and the miners are realizing that they will make a bigger profit selling off the card while the price is high rather than trying to out-do the falling rates, especially considering most people bought them on credit and the interest rates are catching up to them as well. So once all these cards start hitting the market, the supply is going to overpower demand and the prices will start falling. (This is most likely because mining rigs usually have 4+ of a given card, but most gaming builds only need 1-2).

Velocitron2000 2 points 6 days ago

People were saying the same thing half a year ago. Also, the MSRP of some GPUs was increased recently. And cryptocurrency mining isn't the only thing increasing GPU prices, as memory prices are too.

DankParsley 3 points 6 days ago

Even so, this mining crap needs to stop. I'm all for people making money off a hobby, but when one person takes out a loan to buy 100+ high end GPU's for farming, that's 99+ people they are pissing off because now they cant afford to get them anymore to play games. I'm having to borrow a buddies 1070 that he replaced and i'm lucky he hasn't taken it back to sell it yet. Now, I definitely have enough to buy a 1080Ti or such even at current prices, but that would be irresponsible as hell and a terrible investment.

BetrayedPredator 1 point 6 days ago

MSRP went up due to the RAM shortage, if it takes more to make one, they want to sell for more to make the same profits

Crimsonblade911 1 point 6 days ago

What idiots to use credit on such a volatile market

DankParsley 1 point 6 days ago

Most miners lol, you think they paid for 20-100 1080tis on cash?

acs590 2 points 13 days ago

love your case and mods

Polkayman 1 Build 2 points 12 days ago

I totally agree with OccamAsylum this pc is to freaking bad to be on the floor. I would buy a separate Alex Drawer unit just to have it on display lol. When people walk it in the room it would be like Baaammm all in yo face I absolutely Love It.

BOOTYPOUNDER666 2 points 12 days ago

instant + 1 for having a nendoroid and not a piece of crap funko pop.

OfficialP90 2 points 12 days ago

Evil Masterpiece! +1 DeadPuppet, nice fricken job my good man! The theme of this build tops every other! I have never seen such a well done build with this theme! I have most certainly seen some Joker-styled builds in my lifetime on pcpp; however, this one turned out the best out of any of them! Besides the theme, the components in this artwork are exceptional! The cpu is economically high performing and the graphics card is another great piece of hardware that can really tear things up (per say) and can truly get the job done! I'm a big fan of the graphic on the gpu plate (of course, when it's on the lower sector of the case --the psu shroud/cable housing-- and the front as well). The "ha ha ha" graphics all over the case look really good too! Overall, well done! This rig is definitely an accomplishment to be proud of! Keep up the good work!

OfficialP90 2 points 12 days ago

I also own a desk really close to what this one looks like lol!

DeadPuppet submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 days ago

Absolutely incredible. +1

JBelter 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

This is an amazing Joker themed PC. I'm now embarrassed I even called my rig the Joker.

DeadPuppet submitter 2 Builds 2 points 7 days ago

Bro all is takes is a little imagination! and maybe some acrylic!

acs590 1 point 7 days ago

btw, how did you do the backplate?

DeadPuppet submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 days ago

The GPU back-plate I assume? I cut out a piece of clear acrylic to the exact size and shape of the of the back-plate. then just did the design work and it sits on top of the back plate. I have seen some other modders stick it directly to the back plate but for me that was a bit overkill. It sits on top fine and doesn't move.

setsu05 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

DeadPuppet submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 days ago

For you RGB lovers, this is what I mean when I say I prefer a well-designed color scheme than seizure-inducing strobe lighting madness.

Wolklung 1 point 5 days ago

Just love this. All very nice, but for me the 'Ha Ha Ha Ha's" on the PSU shroud make it. Well done & have fun.
