So many people posting, builds get buried fast! haha Appreciate the sentiment though.

Thanks Eltech! You're going to love the game! Attendees got to play it at Quakecon this year. Very exciting stuff, I really like how they are expanding on the DOOM universe. Very proud to be able to contribute something towards it.

Thanks again for the kind words.

Thanks man. It does really make it pay off in the end. I remember just 5 years ago I would never have thought to own something of this caliber, so I know what it feels like to be in a position of not having much and wanting one of those really sick builds you spot in cons. Feels really good to be able to make someones day like that.

That's the best part about wood working. Someones eye sore is another mans beauty! Wood is just so unique it's always one of a kind.

Yeah, that's what I caught flack on on other social sites. But I couldn't agree more, it still handles games just fine. That card has so much meaning to me. Mainly because it was my first big GPU purchase since the 8800GTs! I'll probably hold on to it for a long time just for nostalgic purposes :p

So glad to hear you got your dream build! And I wouldn't worry about the 2080. Your decision in the 1080ti is SOLID. These next cards will most likely be marginally better anyways. Sold build, sold mods, solid builder. Bravo.

Photoshop, there is a built in utility that allows me to do it quickly. Basically a batch process that resizes them to a width of 1200px which is enough to reduce the file size significantly while still maintaining enough resolution for web browsers.

lol the whole build is some where in the 3 to 400 hour range. Lost some track of time when I nearly cut my finger off. The upload took no time at all. I pre-order them in windows and resize them to around 12kb each before upload.

Excellent work on the cable management. I appreciate those who spend a little extra time on that.

Now just remove that PSU sticker and everything will be fine :p

I tend to "ramble" on a lot when I enjoy something or taking notes along the way when I discovered something or an issue occurs but solvable.

IMO, those are the posts that PCPP needs. The site was built as an educational tool to help the uninformed to learn how to build computers. You're a great example of a community member furthering that goal. It's one of the reasons why I put a lot of effort into explaining my mods and answering questions, I learned by example ;).

When I see your builds I can't help but think they should be the template for what a post on PCPP should be. I mean holy cow. I love your attention to detail. I could/will learn a lot from your example.

Hey man that's all that matters. It shows when modders pay attention to detail. Would love to see a build log if you have one. I'll be sure and check out the rest of your builds when I have some free time.

Appreciate that. Some times the fun part about modding is that cool features happen as a result of necessity (referring to the counter bored holes).

Hahaha, thanks man. I love my clamps. The dewalt table saw has handled pretty much everything I've thrown at it. It handled the re-saw of the walnut and maple without issue. The main reason for purchasing it is was pricing and its Rack and Pinion fence system. The biggest downside is the arbor is not big enough for a dada stack :(. That'll probably be my next upgrade.

Will always have a special place in my heart for a loop in an S340. It's where it all began for me! Same color scheme too! You pulled off some tough bends, very nicely done.

+1 just for using Singularity Computers parts. And another +1 for the build why not. Wish we could see whats going on behind closed doors if you know what I mean.

Congrats on featured. Props for doing all those bends, I know what this is like, believe me. Was there not enough room to mount the res vertically? Looks great by the way, I just wish I could like the alphacool block, but I just can't get behind their choice of aesthetic (total personal preference and has no real bearing on your build what so ever)

Really well done man. I can appreciate when someone else does good cable management. A must in all my builds. As you were building it all I could think about was $ $ $ $ $ $ and another $, then it just made me realize how much I've sunk into my builds! damnit! haha great job!

I modified the case to allow me to mount the card there, but I also had to make a special bracket to support the PCIe extension cable which also supported the weight of the graphics card.
