    CPU: Intel i7 4790K
    GPU: AMD R9-295x2
    Memory: Avexir custom made one of a kind Iron Man 16gb 1600mhz

    WATER COOLING
    All up in the air at the moment, plan on using all gold with red coolant. I keep on seeing pictures of this new amazing gold range that bitspower has got but can not find anywhere to buy it, I will have to email them in regards to this one.

    One thing I know for sure is I want to get my hand on one of these 2 blocks for the AMD 295x2.

    SPONSOR​

    Big thanks to the guys at Parvum for Supplying this amazing custom Iron Man case.

    Also a thank you must go to Avexir for again sponsering me but this time with a full custom set of Ram modules.

    Now for the Part you have all been waiting for the case, I have been wanting to do a themed build for along time now and Iron Man was the one for me.

    I am currently getting a Mini Arc Reactor 3D print for the front of the case which will also be the on button.

    This is not the one I will be using as the colors are back to front but another one is on the way and this baby will be up for sale, I had it custom made in reserve ATX so the finished product will have a window cut in the top and it has room for a 360 rad in the bottom.

    Thanks everyone for checking out my build.

    So this happened, I could find a 295x2 for sale at a good price in australia, so I went and got an Asus Ares III this should really fit in with the Iron Man theme.

    Watching this build looking good so far :)

    Dont know what your on about? i run 3x290's, 3930k at 4.8ghz 1.425v and a 1500watt strider psu, power bill is fine?

    Its not like the system is using 1200watts constantly from the power socket.

    His power bill will be fine.

    Well every project has to have a start and mine starts right at the beginning under Parvums CNC router.

    Here are an amazing set of shots that Justin from Parvum was nice enough to take for me.
    It's reserve ATX, wider and longer to fit my Ares 3 better and has a huge window in the top.[/CENTER]

    well that depends lol. I got my bills down to $350 every 90 days after replacing the r9 290x. With the 290X I used to get $600-$700 power bills every 3months.

    Your tring to say that the r9 290x cost you $350 dollars a week to run, well lets go the math.

    Power is currently about 30c a kilowatt.
    R9 290x has a TDP of 300 watts.
    So to run it for an hour would cost about 10 cents with bad rounding.

    So 10 hours would cost you a dollars.
    So you managed to use your r9 290x for 3500 hours in 90days.

    Very inpressive.

    You'd need to factor in other things. It's highly unlikely, near impossible that your GPU bill went up by that much purely because your GPU was changed out...

    Now that the 290X is gone, he's probably been able to turn the aircon in his room down to a more energy-efficient level :leet:

    Mrfocal, when are you planning on putting this beast together?

    WTF? come on man, you gotta be joking?

    Maybe you were running the air con at the same time while running the r9 290x? but its impossible to get a extra 350 on your power bill due to a extra 300 watts, you must of been running something else as well, if it was summer, then it must of been your air con.
