what guide did you use for dual booting windows and osx?
$20 in a $1200 build seems kinda nominal. movies take up a lot of space.
probably a POST code
nice job on the title. you successfully killed the formatting on the topic list page
plus, when/if you go 1440p+ you are prepared hardware-wise.
he said in the description he plans on adding a second loop for cpu, mobo, and ram.
that case does take a bit of magic, but you can definitely do better than that :p
i wasnt by any means agreeing with that mentality, but you hit the nail on the head with that one. i know at one point the staff was discussing the possibility of removing downvoting (or at least hiding score) to prevent this to some degree. i hope they are still working on that.
with that case, i think he did pretty well.
he said he purchased it from ebay, likely from a scrypt miner who is cashing out now that the gains are not worth the electricity spent. that said, i'd be hesitant to make a similar purchase due to the operating conditions that the cards are run at for mining purposes. (90%+ load for months on end)
people around here are sticklers for a description and pictures. this one is lacking in both departments.
modular psu would have definitely been a wise investment on this build
check out the first custom part on his list....
speaking of huge, that monitor is a small TV
edit: meh guess faces dont work well on this site
it seems like he routed them through the mounting holes on the corners. they definitely wont be able to separate. as long as he doesnt throw it down the stairs or something. lol
it was a joke. why do people obsess over imaginary internet points? there isnt a "bump" like a traditional forum so an update would likely not be seen by many.
if you flip that power supply over you may get enough slack to route the 8 pin around the back of the case (in addition to the rest of the cables)
nice build; my only problem is that only like 15% of your build cost went towards your GPU. i'd prioritize a stronger GPU over more RAM. 8GB is plenty for now. +1
edit: lol@ the honesty about win7
if you look closely, there are zipties between them and attaching the bottom fan to the hard drive bays
he's saving up for the free ipod once you hit 50 upvotes.
i call it NMCM (needs more cable management) :p
nice build though! +1
it surely does. make sure you get a stand that can support a large screen though. the first one i got had to be returned because the monitor was too heavy for it to support the weight.
(s)he's doing video editing.
you think someone would do that, just go on the internet and tell lies?
but seriously, what reason do i have to lie? for what it's worth, these are the 448 core 560 ti's, which perform closer to 570s. it's not like i said i get 100+ FPS on max settings crysis 3. 60 on high+ on last year's games is not ground breaking.
i played the bf beta a bit and got ~30 at high settings, but it's not my type of game so i never bought the full game. metro and crysis are two on my list i'd like to try and see just how far i can push these cards. i'm likely not gonna max out much of anything, but i'm content with medium-high settings until i have a budget for a new system.
its also quite a bit older than a 770. it gets respectable framerates at 1440. sure it isnt the best but for what i paid and its age, it is perfectly reasonable. also, there is no need to be rude.
care to explain your logic?
pretty good thus far. gets a solid 60 on arkham city and bioshock infinite only nearly max settings and over 150 on league of legends even with all the fps drops people are having lately on it. I had it overclocked to 110Hz, but i was having issues with resuming from sleep after overclocking so i reverted back for now. i hit the jackpot with that monitor for sure though; no dead pixels or backlight bleed and amazing overclock capabilities.
shame you didnt get a qnix and just overclocked it yourself to see lol. that does make sense though. congrats on the awesome build :D
power supply is way overkill for this build. getting a more reasonable one could have given you some flexibility to get an 8320, because a 6300 might bottleneck the gpus. you got a great deal on that ram though, wow.
no description? prepare to be downvoted to hell...
i like the build, although the 660's are questionable unless this was built before the 700 series was released.
+1 from me
glad to see this build again with a proper description this time! A third Titan seems like an obscene amount of overkill, but that's your choice. i'd probably go for a multi-monitor setup for that amount of gpu power though. 1440 gaming probably barely makes this monster sweat.
very well balanced. from what i can see of the cable management it looks very clean. looks great! +1
he needed something to prop the case on to get those artistic angles xD
if you had read the first line of his description, you'd see the name has nothing to do with Apple.
this is actually the mATX version of the prodigy
when did you build this? the 750 Ti would have been in your budget and given better performance
you should move one of the ram sticks one slot over for optimal performance
love the build +1
per his description he is replacing it with a 780
i was referring to the mobo that op used.
e: according to the wikipedia page, a 4x second lane is a physical limitation of the chipset actually
e2: nevermind, reading comprehension is hard.
either way though, the 2nd card would only be in a 4x lane (as opposed to x8/x16) so performance won't be ideal.
e: misread spec on the chipset. can either perform in x16 single or x8/x8 dual
this motherboard does not support SLi. whether that is a limitation of the chipset or not, i am not sure. plus, the chipset only allows for 1 x16 pci-e lane and 1 x4, so the second gpu will be significantly limited
some people are too much in a rush to put a description. the hdd is probably in the 5.25" bay. if you look closely you can see the power supply cable sticking out of the bay.
the heatsink fins on your video card in that close-up....... eye-twitch
why can't i ever find deals like this on craiglist :(
for a gaming build, you skimped out pretty hard on your gpu :/
this is not a completed build and does not belong in this section.
2 more and a custom water cooling system probably.
with PCPP's extremely conservative wattage estimator, triple sli doesn't even break 1100
that power supply is extreme overkill. what is this going to be used for? also, for as huge as that case is, the cable management seems lacking.
solid build. when did you purchase the parts? you just missed getting the 750 probably. +1
