Subbed. I'm curious why you're using high-end cards and water cooling for a trading rig, though. I assume that since you're using multi-monitor setup that you're doing manual trading. Personally, my trading rig is a thin client running a tuned neural network while I do the tuning on my more powerful rig where I need the performance to run simulations, etc, this is all for automated trading though.

Wanted to build something that would run at low temps, handle anything I threw at it and was fun to look at since I'm at my desk 10-12 hours a day. thumb.gif

Nothing wrong with that! Was mostly wondering if there was more to it than that from a trading perspective. Enjoy the build and I look forward to seeing it pan out.

From what it looks like, it's more of a "paying homage" to the companies thing than a sponsors list, because if they were sponsors one would have to go through the sponsorship program here on OCN and pay the sponsored build fees.


As for how to get sponsors? Work hard, do beautiful work, get your name out there as a consistent, high quality builder that always continues to improve themselves.... And when you get to that point, ask the companies nicely, politely, and professionally.... And don't just make it about you getting something, remember that being sponsored is a two way avenue - there is no free lunch with being a sponsored builder. You have timetables you have to stick to (sometimes insanely short ones, for special events), and there are usually additional requirements they have in place when you're sponsored (no gear from competitors, they might ask you to change a piece of hardware in your build to something else that works better for them, etc).

A number of builders choose to go without sponsorship because of those additional commitments, or wanting to go with whatever they themselves feel is best for their particular theme they're planning.

That's quite the monitor array there! That is also my favorite case too, subbing to see what you do with it.
