X-post from my Tech Blog: ‘These Battle-Stations pack a punch!’

I wanted to highlight a couple of builds that I liked on Reddit. Thanks to “Helrich” and “eagletwo808” for letting me post their builds.

The first build brought to you by Helrich, dubbed “Quasimodo,”¬†is a space saver build, but it has by no means given up any power. Helrich uses the small, but sexy, BitFenix Prodigy computer case which lays the motherboard down “test-bench” style. I think this helps with things like heavy graphics cards from bending down and potentially breaking. I know my SLI 560’s hang a little too low for my comfort which makes me a sad panda ūüė¶

The power packed into this thing is amazing.¬†Check out the spec’s here in comments of the Reddit post.¬†There is an amazing list of components packed into this little case including:

¬†i7 3770k CPU¬†OC’d to 4.8 GHz

–¬†EVGA GTX 690 Signature GPU

Р2x 120GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD

& much more in this SWEET sweet build…¬†Salivate¬†over some pictures, why don’t you!

     

The second build by eagletwo808¬†¬†named MAGI-XT is like a “finely combed beast.” By that I mean it looks so aggressive yet the cablemanagement (which makes me jelly) gives it is so smooth… I guess a Bruce Wayne and Batman reference is sitting in there somewhere. **Give me your best one in the comments below.** I truly love the red-sleeved cabling that is done. The dual fan radiator at the top is just beautiful. There is a list of spec’s in the imgur album, but here are a few that I like:

–¬†Intel Core i7 Extreme 3960X @ 4.5Ghz

–¬†EVGA GTX 680 FTW+ 4GB

–¬†Corsair Dominator GT 16GB Quad-Channel 2133MHz DDR3 RAM

–¬†Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler

…there is also a sweet¬†1200 watt PSU,¬†the case,¬†sleek fans,¬†gaming keyboard,¬†gaming mouse¬†, and much more that make this build abnormally awesome! I would not say that 808 is a Corsair fanboy, but probably more of a completion-ist when it comes to matching hardware.

Here are a few of my favorite shots, but don’t forget to check out the¬†entire build here.

X-post from my Tech Blog: ‘Triple Feature’

Well it has definitely been a while since I last posted so I thought I would try to win back your love with a triple-feature of some very nice builds I saw on Reddit. Thank you to woox13, DominoMotherf***er, and tanmaniac for their permission to post their builds. I will post the links to their Reddit posts. Go show them some love and up-vote the posts to give them some sweet sweet Karma.

First is¬†woox13,¬†and his custom¬†desk with his water-cooled PC built into it. Totally futuristic look, but also functional as a riser for his¬†TRIPLE monitor setup. It reminds me of the¬†Matrix¬†when the guy says, “I don’t even see code anymore, all I see is blonde, brunette, red-head..” Some of you know what I mean..

The second featured build comes from DominoMotherf***er which is still a work in progress, but I thought was sick enough so far that I had to show it. His build includes water-cooling for his CPU with a loop into his GPU. It is sick looking and I can not wait until it is done to post more. The Cooler Master Storm Trooper case is just aggressive and adds to the green coolant on the inside.

And last, but certainly not least, I have a special treat for you all. A beastly $4,200 build dubbed¬†“Nighthawk”¬†by¬†tanmaniac.¬†He built it for a customer of his who wanted to do a lot of video production and editing. This thing just has astronomically impressive stats. For instance, notice the¬†32 Gb of RAM,¬†12 Tb of storage¬†space, and a¬†Core i7 processor¬†OC’d to 4.2 GHz just to name a few key features. I am also in love with the motherboard tray being turned 90 degrees to allow the heat to exhaust out of the top of the¬†Silverstone RV01 case.
