"OK seriously this whole RGB craze is getting wa-"
OMG that's beautiful!
You should consider making the first picture the final build, that way people can see what it looks like from the main page.
Thank you. The first few are recent and I took them with a nice camera. The rest are older and I took them with my phone.
Yeah. those are the Riing Plus 14 RGB Premium Edition 140mm fans (5 pack). They have their own dedicated hardware control box that the fans connect to so that the TT software doesn't have to be running. They aren't connected through Asus Aura.
They are really amazing. Very quiet, and look awesome. Anything but cheap though. I bought them for around 170 USD.
Thanks for that.
Not at all. I use the x34 and I don't have any issues with glare. It has a nice matte finish.
Wow that's absolutely beautiful. Definitely featured quality.
I'm really into RBG builds, but this is a really nice break in the trend. Everything looks very clean and neat. Really like it, well done!
Looks like an anti-static rubber mat for working on.
Here it is on Amazon
Perfect color scheme! Exactly what I got going in my own. I love every bit of it! And the case, too. Exceptionally great looking case for the price. Congrats, this is great!
Wow OK. That's absolutely gorgeous! Great tubing job! Looks amazing.
What are you using your vertically oriented monitors for?
Haha well I don't disagree :P Seems like a good way to starve your graphics card and CPU radiator of air, but I guess if it doesn't catch on fire... /shrug
He addressed this in his post...
"Yes...I technically have a highly negative pressure oriented setup., And no, I don't care. "
Hehe I ditched my x34 stand ASAP as well. That thing took up the majority of my limited desk space :) It's a great looking monitor, on and off. Glad to hear you're not seeing too much light bleed. Mine has some minor bleed which is apparent when watching 16:9 YouTube videos, but no issues whilst gaming.
Rock on! Love the build, and congrats on feature!
Builds a high-end gaming PC that looks totally incredible
"Building this for my son for Christmas, so I hope he approves with how it turned out."
No, I think he's going to hate it.
Really like the look of that graphics card bracket.
Thank you kindly!
So, here's the thing. I actually really really like this.
Hold up. You're controlling your Corsair fans with an Arduino?! How are people not talking about this! That's an amazing money saver idea!
Excellent. Those are really clean
Custom made sleeved cables - not something you see every day. Well done! They look great
Well there's something you don't see every day. I like it
When one 1080 ti just isn't enough... wow. You're right about the case. It is pretty nice, and it's also pretty inexpensive. Congrats on the featured build!
Thanks! Backlighting is a great way to add to any build, and it's super cheap. That RGP LED strip only cost $18 after shipping!
RGP makes the system run 25% faster!
I took the pictures with my phone actually :) It's the Samsung Galaxy s7.
Thanks! I checked out your build. Very similar color scheme!
We all have our priorities :) And the size of the mouse pad has never given me issues. I'm used to a high sensitivity. Someday I'll go and buy some cool RGB one :D
Thanks! I never imagined being featured on this website, I'm honored. NZXT is popular for liquid cooling AIOs; so is Corsair. In the end, just buy stuff from Amazon or another highly trusted retailer. They have wicked lean return policies, so if you really don't like what you get you can always return it. I don't know how many items I've returned on Amazon, but it's a lot :) Have fun!
Thanks! This is where I started. I drooled over other people's builds, left comments, got advice, that sorta thing. I also spent a lot of time on YouTube watching tech channels like Linus Tech Tips, JayzTwoCents, Paul's Hardware, ect. Then it's just down to throwing together pieces on this website and revising the list a million times :P. Good luck! Have fun!
Don't worry, your English is still better than most American's.
Nice build, looks great!
Thanks! Ultrawide is like nothing I've experienced before. I strongly believe that once you go ultrawide, you'll never go back. It just looks too darn good! Gaming on this monitor has been no problem to me. The games I play (Withcer 3, GTA V, Ori and the Blind Forest, multiple first-person shooters, ect.) all run perfectly on ultrawide monitors, with no stretching or letterboxing. In fact, I've yet to play a game that doesn't support 21:9! I know they're out there, but I just don't own one. As a side note, cut scenes in these games are all done in 16:9 aspect ratio, so you'll get letterboxing during cut scenes (it's really not a big deal). If a game doesn't natively support 21:9, it will likely run with letterboxing on the sides, and if you really have to, you could play in borderless window mode and manually select a 16:9 resolution. As for productivity, you can have a bunch of windows open simultaneous, which can be really great for multitasking. Here's a link to some pictures of the monitor with different programs and websites open. Thanks for dropping by! Don't hesitate to ask about anything else.
Aye. I know a lot of builders that avoid it like the plague. The software really is just as bad as everyone claims it to be. That being said, it does work (mostly), so I don't have any ongoing issues with it. But getting everything setup was a pain, and I do occasionally come across very annoying software design flaws or straight up bugs. Hopefully NZXT will get their stuff together and improve CAM greatly over the next months. As for the monitor, it's just perfect. I'm really happy with it, and although the price tag was something scary, I'm really glad I didn't settle for less! Thanks for dropping by!
Amen to that. No regrets club!
Thanks! It's really an experience like no other. Being able to build something that you're going to use everyday for the next years - it's really incredible.
It's not, but that's a really nice case too! I think sometime soon I'd like the get a tempered glass case; they look really nice.
I feel ya. I can't afford another monitor, so I gotta use the small one for now.
In case others are wondering, here's the link.
It's totally dwarfed! I think it would be a good idea to use a 16:9 monitor as a secondary, especially a 27'' one, that way the heights would be similar, as seen here.
I have a GTX 1070 that ran all the games I played on my 2560x1080 monitor just fine, but it wouldn't be able to pull 144 Hz on more demanding titles (like Witcher 3, ultra graphics, for example). I think for first-person shooters it would be fine.
You should check out some YouTube videos on the topic. That's how I made my decision. Look up your favorite titles with that resolution on a 1070 and see if it'll work for your needs.
Happy gaming! Best luck.
Thank you! It helps me cope with my empty wallet.
I sure never dreamt about being featured, it's truly awesome!
Alright, that made me laugh :)
Hey thanks! It's a great cooler, and really adds an aesthetic feature that nothing else can. I'm pretty happy with it!
It truly is something to behold! An eye-catching centerpiece to say the least.
