Once I get enough money I will put pics of the gaming pc I'm building using the obsidian 650 case looks amazing gonna fill all thousand harddrive bays to sigh I love being a computer geek no matter what everyone else says (I'm bullied a lot so this four helps a lot I get to be my self and not act )

1000 harddrive bays.
And you wonder why I have my doubts  Wink

Quote:
- Drive Bays: 5.25" x 4 & 3.5"/2.5" x 6


So assuming you just use solid state drives and don't use an internal dvd drive - you could fit in 10 max Smiley

Actually it will be interesting to see what you come up with - most people have absolutely no idea how to build a gaming system. They just go for the most expensive, newest bits of kit they can afford.
Which is completely wrong.

You have to balance the entire system so that you have minimum bottlenecks. Matching similiar speed components is far more important than just buying the most expensive kit you can.
Stability is also much more important than most people realise. What use is playing halo 7 at 10,000 frames per second (see hyperbole is catching) if it crashes every 5 minutes ?

So yeah, interested in what you build Smiley

I was going to use 1 mecanical 1TB drives and eventually fill the rest with SSD s and yeah I've built multiple gaming computers so this isn't my first Tim e in th's rodeo and I hate when a kid in my class buys a 1000-2000$ but I build mine for 1000-1500$ and It's way better and they say there's is better well mine is cleaner has more air flow and is more custimizable because I know mine inside out and can repair my own way cheaper then having a company do a crapp y job for 100$

lol you're talking to someone who used to have to take hacksaw to cases because they weren't designed properly and when you fitted a drive the lid no longer fitted.

I've also ducktaped, velcroed, hot glued and epoxy resined drives into place in my time.

Cases are almost never designed by someone who has ever built a computer Smiley

OH yeah and your signature quote - should actually read: J RR Tolkien - not gandalf.

Yes but have you installed case fans using twist ties? Grin  Nix the hacksaw and go for a single speed Dremel.  It is the most perfect tool for case modifications out there; you will not be disappointed.  

Drilling additional screw holes and cutting vents in the side panel directly above(or next to) the CPU fan for an additional case fan is a great Dremel project to try.  Extending the life of your CPU and reducing strain on the CPU fan will pay for the Dremel itself.

Sasquatchslinger:  All those thousands of dollars can be wasted in a matter of seconds if proper cooling and airflow is not allowed as well.

And are NEVER deburred it seems.  We all have scars to prove it!  Grin

Mitch that's my biggest concern and why I chose this new case because there's a lot of room in it and I'm putting in aftermarket fans in it.

If you're willing to sling that kind of dough into a project pc, you may as well try some kind of water-cooling system.  Haven't tried that ever as water and electronics are like matter and anti-matter! Shocked  But people who use them say there is NO alternative.

I have been testing water cooling in curb computers so I can know if it is safe or not has been going good and I'm dumping a lot of money in it because it is my first build since 2008

you pretty much only need water cooling if you're overclocking the processor.

Which always adds instability into a system, no matter how cool you can keep it.

Used to do that sort of thing way back when. But processors are so quick these days that it's never necessary. The processor is never going to be your bottle neck.

cool Smiley

I could do with getting hold of some kind of android development system so I can at least change the bloody icon Smiley

Got so many irons in the fire at the moment though, that I can't see the flames !
So it'll have to wait Smiley

LOL, I edited the computer I am using. hard drive used to be a crappy 50gb model, origional, POS. upgraded to 500gb 2 years ago, planning to put a 1tb in it. running Ubuntu(with some slight edits) and quad I7 cores. I get laughed at at school sometimes, but when some kids see the sims I am running off of me flash drive, their laughter changes to "how in ******** did you do that? Where did you get that?" I wound up putting fruit ninga and a bunch of other Ipod games on a TI-84 silver plus graphing calc and might be renting it to people, cause they LOVE it! I get bugged every day in every class- "did you bring your calculator?" In my CTA class, I got practically mobbed once i finished the projects. It is rather hilarious.
