I'm really taken back by the outcry of the community regarding my build, it was for a client who was in a wheelchair, but just games to the max, so a mix of power with aesthetics with a budget is this build. He is going to enjoy the build for what it's worth.
Opposed to sponsored builds or robocop how is remaking his original build with the same $2000+ fittings... Maybe I'm jealous I could never justify that price of a computer, but in all reality bf4 a& titanfall maxed out on a 780OC IS FINE
I get what you are saying, but I really think what robocop did was a piece of art.
As far as expensive builds go, yeah, mine was expensive, but I also did something crazy. 11 inch GPUs with a 60mm radiator and a P/P 60mm radiator while running x79 in an Air 540. May not sound like much, but I've literally maxed out what I can do without cutting out major portions of the case to fit more radiator space. I actually installed every sata cable I could to my motherboard because it requires removing my loop to install another a new sata cable. Same with ram. If I want to install new ram, I have to drain my loop and remove radiators just to access them. If I remove my loop to clean it, it has to go back in, in a specific order or things just won't fit.
I don't think you have to spend a lot of money to make a really good looking rig, I mean, just look at your project glacier.
It's pretty much destined to win. I definitely don't stand a chance against what you did.
