    The Guru3D rig of the month June 2015 is a rig from a real gamer, small yet not extraordinary in the sense that you couldn't do it yourself. But pretty darn nice if I may so. Check out the rig right...

    Nice rig, compact and fairly powerful.

    Indeed, getting such a powerhouse to work in such tight dimensions is awesome. I wonder how loud it is though.

    Monster rig that would break my power bill! :)
     

  5. Those wifi antenas look a bit fail...

    maybe any broken laptop and pull out those antennas out the display panel back... those are much more powerful, and glue them somewhere in the plastic corners of the backside.

    Excellent! I like how small it is and how everything is packed in without wasting any space - loads of power in a very small form, good job!

    Seems too tight for air cooled SLI.. GPU temps must be very high.

    But as the poster said, he's working on a new case.. I hope he adds liquid cooling for GPU's.

    looks like a nicely compressed load of gaming power, like its gonna explode somehow, kudos for his effort and designing skills, it truly looks flawless imo

    I love what he did with this tiny case.

    Yeah, I'd like to know what his GPU gaming temperatures are. If they're too high then I wouldn't like this build, (but as I said in my previous post I do think this build is excellent based on what I can see).

    There´s nothing quite like having several GPUs sitting on top of each other. :D

    Guess I'm the only one who spotted the air pocket in the cpu block which won't be helping with temps. Overall though very nice rig and impressive it's in such a tiny case. He'll when I was at school there would have been no chance of having 3 gpu's and water cooling on my paper round wage ;)

    The 780's pull cool air from below, that helps out a lot. :D

    This is an awesome mini rig!

    Why do liquid cooling if the things that need them most, the GPUs, don't use it? You could have stuck with your crossfire setup if you changed the cooling for them. Intel CPUs these days hardly warrant liquid cooling. A hefty air cooler is usually more than enough.

    Yes it looks great for a SFF case but are those 3GB or 6GB version of GTX 780's? Because there is a 6GB version. If he only has 3GB versions it is severely crippled for UHD or "4k" (he doesn't mention his monitor).

    And those cards are seriously close. I'll bet they are toasty.

    Decent looking rig though.

    He mentions he has 3 monitors, though doesn't mention if all are used for gaming. Anyway, considering the money put into this, I doubt he went cheap and got the 3GB versions. But even if he did, DX12 and Vulkan are designed to take better advantage of the VRAM in multi-GPU setups, so it could still end up being at least 9GB total, depending on the game.

    This is pricey rig, so i'm also interested in why not LCS all the way?

    GPU setup is to tight. They need watercooling.

    It is definitely an awesome rig, but speaking from experience those cards stacked like that will hit 80c+ in no time flat and start to throttle if left to manage their own fans.

    If you manually crank the fans to 70%+ you can keep em from throttling, but it will be loud as hell. My experience is from my 970's and I had a 140mm fan blowing outdside air about 2-3 inches from the back of them blowing straight at the inlet..

    those 780's may be worse due to higher power and less direct airflow. They are open in the "back" and can pull in "cool" air but with them as tight as they are everything just suffers from heat soak. Glad all of my stuff is water cooled now. The jet engines were annoying.
