  1. The color scheme is great, the custom built parts are awesome, and the LCD is next level sh*t!

    Appreciate the kind words again everyone. The whole experience has been kind of surreal! Time to plan out my next build..
  3. Wow! Fantastic final build and pictures. Love it.

    Nvidia 780 Ti -- Now means Titan Ultra -- Opinion Changed

    I've personally never been a big fan of dual GPU cards. Every experience I've had has been buggy for some reason or another. The only reason I could see them being a necessary advantage is in small form factors where you can only run 1 card. I'd almost 100% of the time take dual single gpu cards over a single dual gpu card.

    Adding a temp-sensor to the loop

    Might as well :D

    Nvidia 780 Ti -- Now means Titan Ultra -- Opinion Changed

    Really the only place you will see Titan's shine is ultra high resolutions with a bunch of AA/AF cranked up, given the vram. I use very little filtering on any FPS' I play at 6000x1080 @ 120hz (for obvious reasons) and I'm not vram limited whatsoever. This generation is pretty funny, imho. Nvidia had such a large timeframe and gap to fill they really could do anything they wanted - and they did. Even a 780 could be considered overkill for 1080p gaming. You certainly won't touch 3gb of vram, and likely won't need much more power, if any for that. I'm excited to see how higher resolutions/4k will push AMD and Nvidia to provide higher vram on their cards as a standard feature, and not charge 1k/card for it. :D

    That should work just fine. The restriction will be negligible.

    Conundrum..... GTX 780, or AMD 290x....?

    Naturally they had a huge margin with the Titan's and a bit lesser with the 780 series, but regardless, still pretty big. Mostly because AMD had no answer to their competition and Nvidia could really sell anything at any pricepoint they wanted. $1,000 for a 780 with 6gb of ram... and to think they sold a LOT of them. This is again why I want to see AMD pushing even harder. Granted their 290's are beating stock 780/titans by a small margin, we aren't talking anything hugely game changing. Though again, it's good they at least entered this "generation" and forced Nvidia to move.

    Speaking of price drops... :D

    Post Your Cable Management Skills!

    Jesse - I think we both happened to model our cable management after that pic! :D
  11. Very cool. Things will keep getting smaller and more powerful, which is awesome.

    Post Your Cable Management Skills!

    Looking good guys. Let's just say I won't be posting pics of my first build (if I can even find them any more)... I think I had negative cable management skill. LOL
  13. I totally agree paint is an art... and is a great feature in a mod. Yes, cookie cutter builds are exactly what I was referring to when I mentioned the "less innovative" side of things. Hell, a unique paint job and clever watercooling can make an incredible build (as we have all seen in many instances), and to me, this is definitely innovating. Changing or improving on ideas. Any other things you guys have noticed and liked being done over the past few years? Completely agree with this. And that is a huge component to innovating - trying something new, whether it works or not, refining it, and implementing it.
