    FiberToHome $8K worth it?

    After that get in contact with a few groundwork companies and ask for a quote, explain the situation. Then give the ISP a counter offer.

    FiberToHome $8K worth it?

    You really need a detailed drawing (from council/gov.) showing all services. Gas Electricity Sewage Land drains Water Misc. But looking at that picture, your property does look self contained in terms of sewage and water. I'm not sure if you have gas or oil etc. I don't want to make it sound...

    Under water and 24/7 power!

    Get a quality brand D5 vario pump. As for the AIO fan/pump unreliability, yea i've seen them die/leak a few times but your mobo/cpu has safety features and you'll see the warning signs. Aftermarket cooling kits (custom loop) are far better if done right!

    That is awesome! From experience would you pick 2 TitanX over 2 (or 3) 980s for 4k gaming?

    FiberToHome $8K worth it?

    Just re-read the first post, if the connection to the fiber is through your land and partial gov. land, and mostly all gravel/mud? I would hire out a digger, locate all drawings and service locations, order a lot of sand and a trench whacker, ask ISP provider or fiber installer' minimum...

    FiberToHome $8K worth it?

    If you do want it and willing to pay a negotiated price. Couldn't you do the labour work yourself or hire a separate company to do it? I'm in groundworks/civil engineering and know how much companies like to charge for this type of work compared to a smaller private company. Just depends on...

    mATX Build

    I'm planning on getting that same case, imo best looking matx of all time. Also plan full custom loop again. How much space would be left at the bottom if 2 graphics cards were installed, i can't find a pic with 2 up-to-date cards at all. I'm gessing not a lot of room. Sexy looking build, keep...

    Not sure whether to keep my new GTX 780 Ti or not

    ATM best and only gsync 4k monitor is the acer XB280, the sweet spot for that is 40+ fps. 780ti in sli is just about there, depending on the games and settings. question is, when do you want the 4k upgrade and what games will be mostly played?
