    Heh. Time to just go water cooling if you're producing that much heat. It's going to be more efficient than Peltier cooling and a ton of high-watt fans. Unless this is some special build where some restriction would prevent water cooling, or you're just doing to do it, for fun. If that's the case, then more power to you! lol

    You have to, at the high-end. There is just no other option.

    Dual Redundant PSUs is nothing new in the industry. What is new is a quad of high-en, overclocked and watercooled VGAs, that requires ~400W per card. With four cards, that's 1600 W. My "ideal system" has three PSUs, two for VGAs, one for the rest of the system.

    Add in those that do GPU compute and bitcoin, have just vastly increased that market. People who know NOTHING about PCs at all, do bitcoin mining. Wit ha lack of specially-designed mining ASICs available on the market, there's actually a larger market for this sort of case than you'd imagine...or Corsair wouldn't have the 900D, either. Every case maker has big huge multi-GPU cases for a reason...because there is a market for them.

    I have an Antec 1100 and it IS the same case with a PSU and HDD stand underneath.

    Those are some cool looking fans. :toast:

    On topic, the largest case I've ever had was a Cooler Master Storm Stryker. I bought it cheap and only had it for about 2 days then sold it to a friend along with an ASRock Extreme 6. It was just really too big for my liking. I only plan on building m-ATX and mini-ITX rigs. This case is not for me but I do see some people buying it. Those who do 4-way SLI or CFX and those who need a lot of HDDs.

    Ahh. OK. Cool.

    Why not go with much less power hungry fans? Just curious? Personal preference?

    You never know when you'll need over nine thousand Watts, when chasing records. One 1500W PSU dedicated to a graphics card each, rest for the system.

    Yep.

    That's exactly what it is, down to the dual SSD bays... It's uglier though, and would not fit under any desk I've ever owned.

    I've still yet to discover what a 'professional overclocker' is.

    This extreme overclocking via Dice or LN2. has nothing to do with a case.......:nutkick:


    A 3770K at 5GHz with 3 x 7970's at 1200/1600 pulls over 1000 watts, almost 1100 watts.
