Dugn8r's Completed Build: BadVolf WarWolf, version 1, Intel Build

Dugn8r submitter 7 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

Thank you very much! There is a version that can be raised and lowered but the legs look really terrible. Still, if somebody knows exactly what height they want the desk to sit I can produce that desk to be at that height. As far as the cost goes, when you think about it if you spend $500 on a nice desk and another $300 on a nice case, well you are well on your way to the cost of the desk anyways. Thank you very much for your compliments, the next one I will be posting next week (I'm building it now for NVIDIA Russia) will be even better. There is a custom simulator built so people can play race driving games, and that simulator is on seriously heavy duty actuators powerful enough to shake you out of the seat if you crash. So we had to include racing seat belts. The cost of that alone was 25000 u.s. dollars! So stay tuned, and enjoy!

By the way, I saw that video a bit ago and I was thinking of incorporating it into a system very soon.

The side panel is getting removed... you won't be disappointing. you will just have to wait a few days, we are trying to get the NVidia BadVolf WarWolf table built (ready to see a $35k system?) for Igromir (Russian for Game World) at Crocus Exhibition Center in Moscow this weekend. I'll post some benchmarks and completed photos next week!

Holy crap, you are right! I could have sworn we used the strix... but you know - Russia+3am+alcohol+Poseidon = ??Strix??!! . I'll update the build! Thanks!

I built this one in July. Sorry!

The desk weighs 140 lbs, but comes apart in 3 sections. It's other that difficult to carry with two people. About the same as a wood desk. It is definitely rock solid though - 1.5mm steel (12 guage). Thanks!

I'm building one for NVIDIA Russia that's going to be even better, because it will have the led lit side acrylic (see last photo of newest version of my desk, I will upload now...)

Here is the newest version of the desk hooked with the lighting hooked up to the ASUS AURA RGB headers on the motherboard... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3cVFBfpEpU

Sorry to sound stupid... but I've never actually played a computer game.

It is Mayhem, but I'm not exactly sure which one we used. It was like 3am and I was a zombie... and kind of drunk (that happens in Russia).

I have no idea what that means. Lol. Are those games?

One more set of photos at the end... this is from the first desk I did... it's running two ASUS 1080 TI Strix with water cooling and an Intel i7 5960X Processor on an ASUS X99 motherboard with 32 gigs of ram... it is water cooled. The first photo is the system at idle - 26c... and after a 45 minute render... with one minute to go (so rendering for 44 minutes) with almost 100% SLI GPU usage... I never break 39c. This desk can actually hold three radiators... don't know why you would want to, but you could. At the moment, there are two 480 radiators, two pumps and four reservoirs. One radiator, pump and two reservoirs is for the video cards and the other radiator and pump and reservoirs are for the processor. This is actually my work machine and what I do my designing on... my rendering, too. I can hear the fans in this one... it's definitely not noisy. And even after a long render, they don't get any noisier. The airflow is very efficient.

I added some renders of the smaller version I am designing at the moment... you can see the hot swap trays in the back. I know the back isn't the most convenient, but it's a real difficult challenge trying to make them work out in the front because of the cable management system.

I added a photo from the last computer... I will do a detailed build guide on it.

From my experience, I can hardly hear them. What you have to remember though, is due to the wide, flat configuration of the case, hot air is evacuated very easily and fast. In fact, my Threadripper 1950X running at 100 % never gets above 60c. On the other desk, I am running two 1080ti Strix with water cooling and again, hearing the fans is just about impossible.

Strange, I changed the name because I noticed it... I will have to look again. Thanks! I will send more photos for you... I am currently working on an upgraded version of the WarWolf that will ahve 8 3.5" hot swap bays and 4 2.5" hot swap bays. Personally, I love my big fat 3.5" hard drives... I pool them together using Windows Storage Spaces and I am using one of the 2.5" SSD's for fast tiered storage. It's so crazy fast... way faster than the motherboard raid... and much safer, also. I will send some additional photos for you. In the mean time, I will post photos from the last desk I did... it REALLY looks awesome insude, but doesn't have the LED illuminated acrylic on the legs...

Thanks! With the Corsair H115i, even doing full renders for an hour with SolidWorks, my temps never go past 61c. At idle, I'm at about 53c.
