Why always when I am at work T_T

WirelessCables 1 Build 3 points 9 months ago

GT 730s! Where are they?

JK, this looks great!

GT 730s! Where are they?

Safe and sound where they belong, last I checked.

WirelessCables 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

I meant the project... And all 11 of them.

manirellis_fridge 1 point 9 months ago

Might want to check again :)

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Aww, man... I wanted to see a build in the TU100B with a GIGABYTE 1070 ITX OC.

Oh, well... I can deal with this.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

I believe it actually was proposed when we were brainstorming this build, but I don't recall why we moved off of it. Could be we had trouble finding either the case or GPU in stock at the time we ordered the components.

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Blast...

I would have loved to see that.

Maybe DreamHack Austin will hold a sidegrade for this rig?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

We're pretty happy with the case.. though maybe we'll snatch borrow a GTX 1080 out of one of our other builds before taking it to the BYOC... We'll see how the benchmarks come out. ;)

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

It turned out beautifully! I can't wait for the benchmarks on this behemoth.

Aww, man... I wanted to see a build in the TU100B with a GIGABYTE 1070 ITX OC.

I would like to get my hands on the TU110 but its only available in china. They fixed the ventilation problem with the GPU that you have to mod and drill the bottom panel to install fan.

+9001 for you.

pegotico 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 3 points 9 months ago

It. Comes. In. Orange.

I had a pen-pal who lived in China back in the fourth grade... Do you think he'd respond? XD

I would try!! :)

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Here is a website selling the case and they ship to the US but they are asking a premium for the case.

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

DAMN.

I need that.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

that Gigabyte card is real nice

GentlemanShark 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Give me more mini ITX! (Maybe with my case I'm designing?(+)

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Stay tuned -- with DreamHack Austin only a couple months away, we're planning a few SFF/"portable LAN" builds to get ready.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Awesome, oh and are any of you going to GDC? I've been invited to the capsaicin and cream event and would be down to provide you guys with coverage (or just wear my PCPP t-shirt).

THEFLAMINGAMER 1 point 8 months ago

Whats the event going to be about :)

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Multiple topics, also I love your profile, you almost got me.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

No one heading to GDC from PCPP. Always looks like a great event though.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Ah, alright. I haven't been before, so it sounds interesting.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Yeah. Hopefully you'll enjoy it! I kind of regret not taking advantage of when it used to be held in Austin a few years back to at least check it out first hand.

eopest 8 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

When it's a Ryzen CPU & board and Vega GPU in this same case, call me. Until then... zzzz....

rhali8 2 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

SilkyZ 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Please can you save 1 cent on this, it would be so satisfying! Other than that I am stoked to watch this, should be able to as I have the next few days off, but I need to check what I should be doing, UK timezone here!

CosmicStorm 1 point 9 months ago

Maybe you should try a super-budget build under $600

GeneralLee2-0 1 point 8 months ago

I already have one! Check it out, give some advice.

Why when I am at school ;(

dominorider2431 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks guys! I always look forward to your build guides. They are quality material. I was a little uncertain since you didn't release one for over a month. But all is good, thanks! = ]

Namnguyen 1 point 9 months ago

Namnguyen 1 point 8 months ago

uberlizard 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Still not on youtube?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

It just went live tonight.

uberlizard 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

yeah, i saw. Thanks!

AwesomeBuilderXE1901 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Why don't you try the 'tiny' GTX1080 that was introduced at CES? Or else the 1080 ti? Oooh with Ryzen Plz plz plz.

MarkOus 1 point 8 months ago

Thats an excellent build! But why did you opt for a FE for the 1070? Thats the only thing I would had chosen differently.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

It's not the FE that was the driving force, rather the blower/reference cooling design to help with the limited airflow options of the ITX case. And while the NF-A14 case fan we're using moves a lot of air, we wanted a reference card design to ensure the GPU wasn't adding its heat into the case when it could be pushing it out the back.

Well, you know.. 2PM is more of an early afternoon snack time than lunch. ;)

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

True.. which makes it rather amazing that we've not all been caught taking a post-lunch nap when the cameras start rolling.
