    Portal 2. I think that's the only game released in the last 8 months that I've played lol


    I think most people's wives would kick them out after starting the first one :laugh: They'd get jealous of all the time, dedication, effort, money etc. put into the project :p

    Amazing work now it's finally time to play some games!

    Thanks for taking the time over the past months to share with us, and putting all the work into the forum posts videos and pictures!

    One question I have to ask though is what is the noise coming out of this thing, is it below ambient ?

    And also is the exhaust from the fans in the back directed up or down or does it exhaust out the front of the desk ?

    No problem man, all those positive reactions kept me driving :)

    It's really really silent, all i can hear are the Hitachi hdd's when they wake up from sleep :)
    Almost all the fans in de desk itself run on 5V 600 rpm so you can hear them on 10cm distance.

    The right and left fan in the back of the desk are only to provide cool air for the 2 coolermaster psu's. They are pointed up @ 5V.
    The middle one between the 2 psu's is blowing downwards @ 7V

    nice pc lovely pics ,great build again again lol

    give it some hammer now

    a question though i notice you have smaller monitors vertically at the sides ive a question or 2
    are they just used on desktop or do nvidia allow different rotations in game, at least on some and
    what sizes did you go for i think a 27" and 2 17" 16 x9s but maybe wrong
    i ask because i like it

    and finally ive been thinkin about doing a scratch build myself and you might well have inspired me, did you ever consider doing it as full dipped in oil style cooling system? ie a desk full of light oil with rads somewhere, im pondering having a go at that
    nice read though cheers.

    Nope the 2 17" screens can't be used in games, they still need to make drivers for that :)
    You need 3 the same screens for that with exactly the same resolution.
    So im just using them as desktop. (And can't do without now anymore :p )
    Specially pay atention to the dots per inch on the screens en the size off course when you want to use vertical screens.

    Never done anything with oil :p

    Thanks !

    Looks like this mod is in the lead by a long shot, unless I missed something. At the moment, >700 votes. Only 2 other mods are even in the 300-400 range. A handful are above 100 and some are lucky to even have 1 or 2 votes.

    I think the winner is clear.

    Yeah, the only other one I'd even consider voting for is the Tron Cycle.
