Meet "Chuck" my dedication box to my grandfather.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
for some reason i cant acesss my old old account.

i know i dont fold for you guys but i figured you might like
first and formost the desk is my wife's shes a pink fanatic. I just invaded the space for the build. Granted there may be a cheaper route of doing this but i wanted to play with a 2600k and this was a perfect opportunity to do that. Thats why i chose the 2600k

i wanted this to be a GPU build over a cpu folder. I plan on rotating GPU's out as i upgrade my gaming rig.

This box is named "Chuck" it is dedicated to my grandfather Charles. He suffers from some major **** called Alzheimer's. Its getting bad. My grandmother is a very strong women and takes care of him. I dont know how she does it day in and day out. Im predicting he will either pass away in the next 2 years or my grandmother will have to put him in a nursing home. She refuses to do this till the very end.

This is my folding box dedicated to him.

i will update benchmarks and stuff as i progress with it.
Right now chuck is about a 90KPPD+ box. He just came back online at 100% just installed the new PSU and 4th gpu.
2600k 4.7ghz.
asus ws revolution
2x2gig gskill ripjaws 1600.
3x nvidia 460gtx. 1 470 gtx
1200 corsair psu
40gb intel x25 ssd

People like you make me proud to be an OCN member, and an ex-folder. What case is that? Or I saw something Lian Li, at least

I haven't seen many pics of 4 dual slot cards on one board before... but I must say that it doesn't look like they much if any airflow into the fans because each fan is being blocked by the adjacent card, with the exception of the bottom card of course but that card would be blocked in a normal case.

yeah thats at the wall not even taking into account the PSU effeincy. But that is one reason i went with the corsair 1200 was once the 580gtx's make it to this system i wanted to be prepared.
