So here's a DOUBLE build log!

Also comparisons between both as to how good one is VS the other is critical in the near future when I get everything!

Mother of god... A build with a 3930K is considered a budget build..? I guess that makes my rig a hombo's build. Nice pictures and unboxing. Are you using these computers at work or something?

Nice! I'm interested in seeing what that 800D build looks like when it's finished. I was considering going with a Corsair case, but ultimately decided to go with a Fractal Design Arc Midi for now. I read a rumor on a forum from a Corsair rep that their upcoming cases are supposed to be pretty amazing. Will have to wait and see!

The "budget build" without REAL watercooling, and rightfully so. Watercooling is an EXPENSIVE hobby. The "extreme build" has watercooling. Adequately named. Both builds are going to be amazing.

Subbed.

Thanks everybody!

Everything is relative my friend.

I built systems for 243$ as well. Depends what's the need of it.

This is for work yes. Much database shuffling and crazy IOPS count!

Watercooling did cost a lot, but I am hoping it will pay off in at least 5-10% increase over the H100 (which is watercooling, but closed loop)

Here's a few pictures of the hardware!

Beautiful sound card. I love it!

That's the same sound card I'm using now. Seems to be much better than the Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS PCI card I had before, at least driver wise. If you have multi-channel audio be sure to use the Xonar DX Audio Center to set it up rather than the Windows Sound Settings.

Thanks everybody for the kind words!

There are a few updates today... First my girlfriend ripped open all my boxes, so no unboxing and I couldn't get proper pictures :(

Here's a video instead!!!!


Next update in an hour or so when I figure everything out!

Wow, those look incredible! I may just have to order some to go with my Rampage IV Extreme X79 build. I was thinking of just going with all white once I do sleeving, but the combination of red, white and black looks great. I don't suppose I could get a discount if I ordered a set of those red, white and black cables for my Corsair AX850 PSU?
