This sides of this case are the same size so you can put them in any order. This also allows you to rotate the case so that the bottom is on whichever side you want it to be.

Uses a 43" 4K monitor and 2 1080p monitors.

The ugly brown fans were part of my older build and are really good fans so I kept them. I thought about getting Thermaltake Riing fans but the other issue was that my PC is in my bedroom and would blind me at night if I didn't turn it off.

Haven't got Dolphin setup yet. Been using other emus. I've also play Far Cry 4, GTA V, Call of Duty BO3.

Updated the build. I went with the Wasabi Mango UHD430 43" 4K monitor. It lined up well with the 24" screens that I already had. I'm loving it everyday and don't think I can go back to tiny monitors now. This thing has every feature the Dell P4317Q has but for half the cost.

The case is actually a pleasure to work with since all the panels come off. Fan placement was something I had to layout a few times to make sure everything fit. I did have a little trouble figuring out where to plug the fans in and run the cables at first as well. I did have to remove the front fan to attach the gpu coolers.

Not sure exactly... more than a loaf of bread. With everything I have crammed in there I'd say it probably weighs around 30 pounds or so.

The video card fans connect into the video cards themselves. Everything else connected to a fan connector on the motherboard. It has a lot of connectors.

Great build. I'm glad to see free parts being put to good use. A SSD and good CPU cooler will really help for gaming. Overclock that CPU a little more to see what it can do :D

With everything I have crammed in there I'd say it probably weighs around 30 pounds or so. It's 16" long, 12.5" wide, and stands 13" tall. I say that it's about half as tall as a full size tower but almost twice as wide. It's not nearly as small as some of the ITX builds out there, but that's a different build set all together.

I barely notice the fans running even when everything is at 100%. I downloaded a sound app (don't know how accurate it is) but it showed around 40db right next to it and 27db from where I sit. I'll hear the HDD clicking around when it's busy and wonder what it is sometimes.

I did run 3DMark Fire Strike. Anything in particular that you wanted to see?

Most are pulling air into the case. The one on the back is exhausting. There's so much open bent space on the back and sides of the car that it really doesn't become positive pressure. The 200mm is pulling air in with the 2 GPU radiators behind it and then there are 2 fans pulling on the radiators too. The CPU cooler in also push/pull pulling air into the case. I don't know if switching then around will bring better temperatures, I just thought that the cooler air outside would be better for the radiators.

I added another picture from the back pointing in to show the 980 Ti radiators. They're inside the case. So it's: fan, radiator, case wall, 200 mm fan, car cover.

I have used a 3x1 landscape setup for quite a few years but learning about WSGF and some if their setups the 5x1 portrait fascinated me. The only downside is that there are quite a few platform games that won't work in full screen. I'm still learning though so maybe I will be able to get them to work.

I'm glad you put the dollar in the last picture. It blows my mind how small it is and how powerful a tiny PC can be. Great work.

There are black Noctua fans now but I'm not replacing these until they die. I like the Riing fans, because fancy, but my PC is in my bedroom so LEDs become a pain at night.

Unfortunately, finding thinner beveled monitors with power buttons that can easily be accessed in portrait when side by side is very difficult. I'm not experienced with debezeling so these were a good deal. If the U2415s were cheaper I would have got them but would have still had the same bezels.

Underneath the other one. I just had to turn it for the tubes to fit. Both are able to fit behind the 200mm fan.

It's an interesting idea. I would still want to put 2 of my monitors in portrait on the sides though :D maybe one over top too in landscape

It's the one thing I'm not looking forward to. I have a pack of velcro ties that will hopefully clean it up some. Just need some time to do it and some Aleve afterwards.

I had to recreate it for the 5x1. I let DisplayFusion randomly pick from a collection of 4K or panoramic photos.

Why not? It makes FPS and Racing games so much better.

Thank you so much for showing off this beast of a machine. I have a similar build with the same mobo and was having problems finding 2 gpus that would fit correctly. My Sapphire R9 390s are just a little too wide, even with the back plates removed, to fit properly so I have purchased the EVGA 980 hybrids and will be selling the 390s. Now I just have to figure out where to stuff 2 more radiators :D.

After some research, I'm going to use this build as my base. I already have the SSD's and Video Cards and I'm going to increase the Memory to 32GB (I use Photoshop and Lightroom for big panoramics sometimes) and upgrade the Power Supply to the newer RMx. Potential Build

Are you planning on using the stock CPU cooler or are you planning on buying something else? Perhaps a Hydro Corsair or even one of NZXT's.

So, after the advice here, the research online, and some discussion with friends, I've decided to stick with the 970s. I have a lot of older games that I still play and I know that they work with NVIDIA. I don't know if they'll work with AMD so too bad for that. Now to wait and see if BF or CM bring any better sales.

Ha, thanks for the advice so far. :) My budget is preferably under $700 (far from Trump money) for 2 cards and cords. I'm going to need to measure inside my case for clearance on some of these cards I'm seeing.

Now I'm confusing myself if I should go with 2 R9 390s instead, but I don't have experience with eyefinity and crossfire. The 8GB GDDR5 and 512 bit bus are very tempting since the are in the same price range as the 970s.

Typically I play FPS (usually not online), racing games (Dirt, Need for Speed), and plan on getting GTAV.

As I've been researching, I think I like the idea of getting 2 EVGA 970. I like the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR due to price, connectors, and great reviews, plus it should push through everything.

Any thoughts?

I don't mind a couple of older GPUs as long as the $ total isn't too much. I know bottleneck is going to be a problem at some point until I can make a new build.
