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 :)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!!!!!

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

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.
