Description

This was a custom built PC my uncle did a while back and it is what top of the top looked like in 2011 this was a great build and by no means a slouch even today with current games and programs with it's 3x sli and 4x rads with a custom loop. well it was cool to see when it was new and not shipped out to a buyer and a beast to construct. enjoy :)

"Excuse me sir, would you like some computer with those fans..?"

Datcoldness 5 points 13 months ago

That's a LOT of fans.

IceColdInferno 10 points 13 months ago

My first thought was "oh look a box of fans!"

CrazyChief24 5 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

my thought exactly.... i present you the comment of the year goes to....

hi_im_snowman 3 points 13 months ago

I think the real issue here is dust... There comes a point where THAT much airflow will absolutely snow-cover your components in thick dust... Strange decisions in this build imo

weasleyawesome52 submitter 5 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

the guy who bought was recommended to air dust once a week that was the best solution

Datcoldness 1 point 13 months ago

Could actually be harming him having so many fans, despite the additional airflow.

weasleyawesome52 submitter 5 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

actually it was interesting they had to drill holes for grates EVERYWHERE cause there was so much air coming in but not escaping and one of the original concepts had one HUGE fan at the front in a custom case

hi_im_snowman 1 point 13 months ago

Any pics of the original concept by chance?? I'd love to see that tbh!

That is a fan

WIthdraws 4 points 13 months ago

Honestly, it needs more fans.

Impressive, that's really all I got.

What the actual....?!

This build is insane, and in 2011 I'm sure it cost a small fortune. Those first gen i7s (especially the "X" line) still hold their own for most everything.

+1

weasleyawesome52 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

it cost around 14000 upon construction glad you liked it!

Ahaha, that is ******* awesome. I love it.

And I thought my build had a lot of fans...I am not worthy.

Are you sure you have the right PSU in the parts list, I didn't think that unit was out in 2011.

weasleyawesome52 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

i just threw one in that was about right with the wattage cause i didnt have the full parts list it was just photos and what we could get from memory.

This thing has enough air power to be considered airworthy by the FAA

Nathan_Fitz 1 point 13 months ago

replace the 580s. please. a modest RX 550 can beat one of those artifacts. but still, insane build. and you might want to invest in an SSD. and atlest a GPU from the GTX 900 series. preferably the GTX 960. its FAR better than the 580s you have in there. 3 of those and you`ll be living LIFE IN THE FAST LANE!!!!!

Garog 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

This isn't a modern build, this is an old system. Read description.

weasleyawesome52 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

umm do you understand that this was a build done in 2011 and most of those parts weren't commercially available at the time that you mentioned above

Nathan_Fitz 1 point 13 months ago

oh. but still.

Ho boy, this is absolutely what enthusiast-grade looked like in 2011 for sure. Props to your uncle for building such a beast back then.

Vance_Anderson 1 point 13 months ago

Airflow much?

T2US 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Believe it or not people will still use older hardware (that's perfectly capable) for builds these days, it's a good way to save money in the minefield of GPU/DRAM pricing.

REF: Check out any of my budget builds, they all have used parts and work great for someone on a budget.
