Introducing our new hardware rep!! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I guess what I'm saying is if you modded a BH8 the same way you did with your BH4. Corsair has a similar concept, an Carbide Air 540, but I find that case a bit taller and wider than it needs to be. The volume of the bullet is minimal and is basically the length and height of a single EATX motherboard.

Okay I got it now. I just needed to clarify the orientation smile.gif

I'll pass it along. I know I'd love a rotated, dual bay design option for the Bullet series. I think they should be called the "Revolver" variant as a pun off Bullets and being rotated or "revolved" around.

Your build looks so good.

EDIT: As SLI dies a slow death, there's less and less reason to build tri or even just regular SLI systems. The need for these super large cases are also going away. A single GPU TH10A case is just overkill. The days of these types of systems are already kind of in the past.




IMO, the thought process should be, how would you design a case centered around an Asus Rampage Apex EATX motherboard w/ a 7980XE and a single Titan, sound card, and perhaps a PCIe add in card, and still make it look aesthetically pleasing. There aren't that may matx or itx x299/x399 motherboards out there.

I agree, single GPU is where it seems to be going right now.

If I didn't just spend the money for an EK XE360 a year ago I would probably sell my M8 and go for the BH8....which I am considering, just not sure how much I can get for those parts used....

As someone with a SLI system, it's basically for show. Single GPU is definitely the best option. I can't recommend SLI 1070's anymore for a better performance/value over a single Ti. Or honestly even a single 1080.

Yea, I have been kicking myself for years for spending the extra cash for a motherboard that can do quad SLI/X-Fire.

How many GPUs do I have?

1

I find it to be better use of my funds to buy a new GPU rather than to buy a second older one as the performance gains are usually much better with the new tech.

P.S. Congrats on the new position with Caselabs. Looking forward to any of your other builds you have on the way.
