    Will be finally doing a early 2017 build log for each system and setup soon but here are some of the pics of what the setups currently look like you can see the specs of the systems in my signature
     
    The Tank and my main setup that has 3 displays:

     
    And here is my ITX LAN Party/Spare PC that has a 1080p touch screen hooked up to it:

    New update to my setup: New Desk, New Case, and the old Alienware X51 which was my first actual gaming PC back a few years ago is back on the desk to look good. I can easily switch between the 2 machines by pushing a button on a KVM located under the desk and hitting the input selection button on my monitor. The new case is a Cooler Master HAF X and the thing is literally as big as it looks only sitting a few inches shorter then the desk.

    I can probably get something to move the ITX PC onto but the smaller ATX PC on the white desk the desk has a set of drawers down the area under where the PC sits so it's impossible to center it out. Those 2 setups anyway aren't really setups I do more then play the PC on if I need space I'll either use the main PC desk or move somewhere else.

    that 1070ti in the White Leopard (isnt that background from Apple's MacOS?) has more sag than bitcoin prices. Maybe give it some support/

    SuperShermanTanker got a reaction from PerfectPlasma in 4k HTPC for 4k Netflix and YouTube   
    I don't think the AMD APUs and GPUs are compatible with the DRM that they have for 4k netflix from what I looked up you need either a Nvidia 10xx series GPU with 3+gb of VRAM or a Intel Kabylake or higher chip
  8. Agree
    SuperShermanTanker got a reaction from _StrikE_ in Is now a terrible time to upgrade?   
    Well I have a i5 kabylake system and I feel it's going to last me quite a few years because think of how long dual cores lasted with a few of the very popular games still being playable on a dual core so think on how that will happen with quad cores they are so popular dating back on the intel consumer platform to the Core 2 Quads (which still can play games with medium to high settings with a lower midrange GPU) and due to the popularity developers will take that into mind just as they did with dual cores not too long ago.
     
    EDIT: PS developers are still just started intergrating support for more cores and some still even with 6-8 core CPUs being more abundant don't even take advantage of that.

    SuperShermanTanker reacted to Deli in 780 Value   
    Vega and GTX780 are completely different class of GPU. 780 is more like a 1050Ti now, while Vega is like 1080/1080Ti. Will the release of a high end GPU affect the price of an low end GPU??

    SuperShermanTanker reacted to purplepenguin202 in $1600 Main PC 5-21-17 UPDATED   
    It would appear that the cooler sticks out more than the gpu (towards the side panel) which isn't apparent in the second picture, but it gives the illusion of being closer in the first picture.

    5-21-17 Update
    I got the new fan controller and fans for the front of the case and I took out the mount for the extra HDD cage and I put a 120mm fan I had laying on my shelf in the bottom along with mounting a dust filter on that fan. I also have did some tuning and adjusted the fan curves and cooling on the system. I also moved my 120mm Noctua LTT edition fan from the front of the case to be a second fan on my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo when I added the 2 new fans in the front which are Corsair ML120 fans. The bottom fan is a slim Thermaltake fan with a blue LED in it I just used it because it was whatever I had spare sitting on my shelf.
     
    I'm currently waiting on a side panel window to arrive and after that comes I may start to add some LEDs for some cool lighting. What do you guys thing I should do for lighting?
     
    If any of you have any tips or comments don't be afraid to say it I'm open to suggestions and tips for future upgrades and stuff for the machine.
     
    Specs and Parts:
    AMD Ryzen R7 1700x
    32gb of 2400mhz DDR4 RAM
    ASUS Prime X370 Pro motherboard
    AMD Radeon RX 480 8gb
    5.5tb of HDD in 4 HDDs
