AVP. That picture is not good because it's a really dark scene, and didn't set-up my tripod# So it was a ''handheld twilight'' shot.

And my second build: kids computer, for LAN gaming. Finally had some spare time to finish that build for my kids.

Mountain Mods U2-UFO (with alot of DIY and modding), Maximus IV + i7 2600K at 5.1 24/7, 16Gb of RAM, AMD 7970.

Had to DIY the top to fit a 2X120mm XSPC rad.

Had to also mod the other side to fit a 1X140mm rad over the HDD.

And this is were I'm gaming in glorious 4K resolution.

4K projector on a 8 feet wide screen.

Main room (dedicated HT). Totally acoustically measured and treated by an acoustician. Not a single LED in the room to break my ANSI CR. Dedicated electrical line and dedicated electrical panel. 6X 20A to power everything. 7X 325w for 7 speakers and 2X 325w for to subs.
smile.gif




Projector in the back of the room. You can see the lens. Projector was professionnally ISF calibrated (by me).

There is 4 bass-shakers in each sitting places.



4 ways motorized masking system at 2.35:1



And some pictures I took of a 4K movie on my 8 feet wide screen.

Much better then any 3X30" LCDs or 5X screens out there.

Gaming in true 7.1 surround, in a totally black room, on 8 feet wide screen in 4K resolution is simply crazy.

Those are 8 feet wide in reality!







For those interested in the construction of my dedicated room, you can go see it here:

There is a "Show details" with a green plus sign on the top right corner if you want to see more details. You can also click of the small pics to get more info.

My HT is called "Home Theater with a view" for a reason. Took those pics relaxing in my backyard while looking at the sunset. No modifications, real colors directly from the camera.

can i come over and take a few leaves off the money tree you have planted at your house? lol.

Seriously though, beautiful builds. Are your kids like "dad, why do you get 4 7970's and we only get one? You could have atleast set us up with crossfire!

Gentlemen, I did not create my account to post that. I created my account days before I posted that. Perhaps I should have added a cute little
wink.gif
to my post so people would know I was joking. Sorry you guys took me as serious, I thought I was obviously joking. But on a more serious note, is that how Overclock.net greets all new members? I know the answer to this is NO, but I was not expecting that type of reaction. Nonetheless, I will keep my comments of that type on 9gag.

In other news, that build is incredible and gives me a vision of what I want to strive for in my future builds. This home theater gaming room is a prime example of what time, determination, imagination, and a few gym bags of money can create.

Nice rig and HT. Why so much case & cooling in the kid's rig for a single card setup? Planing to pass on your 7970s and get 680s?

Got a new Corsair K90 with Cherry MX red. I love it! Awesome keyboard!

Still got my Leopold tenkeyless with blues and browns, but my favorite is now the Corsair with the reds.

Blues for typing.
Reds for gaming.

Some pics with blue WASDkeyboards keys.

@levesque:eek:k great build (no sarcasm)I got some question

Your 4k projector:is it hooked to your computer?what medium you use to view.Dvd.br.netflix etc?if so my main question. Aren't you supposed to be in ycbcr pixel format in gpu?if you are what browser are you using because last I check maybe on firefox as the possibility(not even sure)of displaying ycbcr.
I sure would like to know how you did it because I would like to use ycbcr all the time but I haven't found out how with w7

One question, though: what fittings/barbs are you using to connect the tubing to the GPUs? I kinda like it.

Absolutely love your home set up. You have given me hope that it is possible to have an awesome pc related home theatre. Keep up the great work! That 4k projector is just porn....how did you get a 4k movie or is it just the projector?

Great job, achieving that kind of installation tells a lot on the profesionnalism you have. Your description does show your ability to comprehend both creative and technical skills. Congratulation. And for those who are offended by that kind of installation, remember "Aim so high, you'll never be bored". And for the financial aspect just remember this : "To die poor is sad, to die rich is stupid" so keep envoying your good fortune Levesque. Good job well deserved.
