Description

Built this machine to handle gaming at 3x 1080p screens. With a solid upgrade path to Ultrawide 1440p when it becomes cheaper (Which is actually easier to run). Only reason I went with the Crosshair was because Deepcool refused to offer a mounting bracket for the DeepCool Captain 240 (non EX). And it was cheaper to grab the Crosshair, than to get a whole new Cooler. It can handle triple monitor gaming when overclocked at around 40-60fps in the most demanding titles, such as Witcher 3, set at Ultra. Enough that I don't notice a difference.

As for the shockingly low prices. That is a combination of savvy shopping, Ebay, and Microcenter deals.

Don't the outside panels look a little stretched out?

They do a little in certain scenes. But that naturally happens. Still, once you settle in and peripheral vision sets in. The brain compensates. Things like stretching and bezels fade out.

Sick setup. Did you get any more fans, or do you just use the 2 stock case fans.
