....But can it make coffee???....
Two GPU's but no SLI bridge? Why?
Plz fix those cables its giving me anxiety.
Yes I wanted to cut down on the heat with it being such a compact build. I would have gone watercooled on the 2080 ti but I would have gone well over my 2k budget. Also the closed loop watercooler only cost about $40.
Wow, I did not think it was possible to put together such a slim build with a 1070. Perfect for LAN parties and such. +1
Yes its to show the board is getting power. I believe its just how this model motherboard was made.
Shadows of mordor is not the game you want to run a test like this on, as it will always play better on an AMD GPU, this has been proven, would have been easier to use a game such as GTA or Fallout 4 that is known to run well on NVIDIA. Don't believe all the benchmarks, it also doesn't take into account a lot of small details.
The parts used are not bad by any means. Nice build +1
I run a 970 reference card and play everything on ultra and on 4k with a dual monitor setup for a movie on the secondary. I don't know where you're getting that you need a 980 to do so. The 970 is sufficient for the task and handles it with little frame rate drop.
Beautiful build man, i love every part you used in this build. +1 one of the best builds I've seen part for part.
Amazing cable management, probably some of the best I've seen in a smaller case such as this.
Decent components, the only ones i see that could possibly improved is the RAM and possibly the GPU(Nvidia fanboy here)
Cost wise you did very well i'd say, used to own my own fractual case and they keep things very quiet and are decent build quality.
I give it a 7/10 for an efficient cost-performance ratio machine, good job.
I had left the prices what the site pulled up and not what I actually paid. I also had about $200 in peripherals, and close to $800 in monitors. Lol
Hah no they weren't i commented twice originally and didnt edit but deleted, i dont know where the third came from. Thanks it was pricey im sure i could have gotten more performance per dollar but i was picky with what i used
Updated all prices for what was paid, removed the peripherals and monitors since there were discrepancies with what was actually paid for just the tower.
I don't mind constructive criticism. Yes I know the red sata cables must go soon and it isn't a flashy build by any means.
