Anymore pictures (page 10) or benches anyone would like? When it is in place I will take quality pictures of the sim.

Mind if I asked how much of a budget it was to set up the entire thing? It's absolutely incredible, well done!

Ok so I woke up and was like, WELL I have this crazy box. Maybe I should see max oc? I stopped at 5.7 :x Nothing super stable mind you, since this is not technically my rig I don't want to go crazy but damn. I want one of these. I bet with the right tweaks I could get 5.5 steady just with some serious voltage (1.5~) from my testing.

Anyone here familiar with 3dmark 11? No response in the main thread for it, my scores are great but a bit low for the hardware I am running. Any advice? System is going in place 9/25 where preliminary installs are happening (main sim to test 5 screen response etc). Directly after that (verify it 'works') all components, huds, etc will be linked. When this happens I will take a short video of a flight and showing cockpit. This is a joint project during last leg so might not all happen on the 25th.

I will ask! This is his second one I have helped with so kind of bunched them together on my end. I will hopefully find out the 25th. Thank you as well!

Wow that's an awesome build!

I normally shy away from really big 1080p TVs but those 3x 65" and 2x 60" must look bonkers in person.

Here's hoping you'll post some HD photos once everything is finished thumb.gif

Treated the days as though they'd kill us if they could
Ringing out the hours like blood-drenched bedsheets
To keep wintertime at bay but December showed up anyway

Just to keep you posted on the build status.

Bad things happened! Massive surge happened in the environment and a few consoles blew. A great deal of it has been fixed this week but we are waiting on a few parts that will not be here for 14 days. I will update then. Until then below are a few better pics of the sim. Again, not nearly all the lights and screens (especially on the HUD) are on. This is about 1/4 powered.

Mother of God! this looks better than I thought it would.

Sorry about the surges, hopefully it hasn't caused too much damage and disruption. The pictures make this so exciting too keep track of.

What scores are you getting in 3D Mark 11? it's a difficult bench too run esspecially in extreme.

Maybe try heaven for some more real time gaming benchmarks at such a big resolution.

Loving it man!

I didn't do a great deal of tweaking for 3dmark 11 but I did hit over 16k. Think that is decent enough?
