    Many many thanks, Durahl. Damn, that's what I mean, almost 1 KW. Supposing that you use your PC a lot, and you have such a powerful PC because you need that power and use it...

    Have you noticed that you're paying more in the electricity bill? How much it costs per month if you use this kind of PC usually?

    Drawing Stuff, doing 3D Modelling, some Gaming, researching Ideas for Scale Models, listening to Music, watching Movies/Series... Most of my Hobbies revolve around my PC's so yea... I'm probably making good use of them - Though not for work related activities xD

    I'm not too conscious about my electric bill so I can't really give an answer to that - I mean... With a build like that I'm obviously not having money problems so electricity is one of my least concerns ( Money wise... A short circuit would very much bother me )

    Yeah, you can afford it, me too, anyone here can afford a bill, xD. It's just curiosity. Even I can afford it, I'd rather go with a PC that needs 500W and can handle anything pretty well than an overkill PC that eats almost 1KW. I don't know, it's less heat (though I don't know how water cooled PC's work, I'm talking about a normal air cooled PC), much more space, cheaper... you know. No offense, mate .

    A question, how water cooled PC's work? Is there a little tank that you refill with normal water that is pumped through all the pipes/tubes? Does it eject/expel too many heat?

    Thanks again!

    Everybody has their preferences. I prefer cases of sufficient size to cable manage, but don't want huge cases. I prefer modular power supplies to keep my cabling neat. I don't like lights or case windows, so I don't use them. I usually use stock coolers unless they prove inadequate. I usually apply a small overclock, but nothing substantial. I like my computers very quiet. I don't use liquid cooling as I don't usually have a great problem. But hey if somebody else wants to build a super high end rig and do the exact opposite of what I like, that works for me.

    Liquid cooling is more efficient than air, and quieter. But it's more complex and could leak. It's necessary for the highest of overclock. Unnecessary for me though, not worth the cost and setup time.

    By no means am I claiming that rig above to be mine!
    Just a reminder,where determination,imagination,commitment to the final outcome,some fantasy and a full 'wallet" can lead.
    Still satisfied with my humble i5,a one giga GPU and a self-modded ancient Chieftec Dragon case,but would gladly own a rig like the above.The point is,i would own a jet,but that would not mean ,i could fly it.

    Probably, but I like those modules just the way they are so I'm not interested in messing with them. I would however like to paint/dye those fan rings green. Just haven't gotten round to that yet though. I did discuss it here though but that was a while ago.

    Anyway thanks for the suggestion.

    And damn, that is one fine looking system you have there. Love the color scheme.

    Peace

    Didn't we have this discussion before pparks

    This is more to do with art and high end performance than practical functionality. It's not for everyone, just as hot rodding cars isn't for everyone

    We probably did. My opinion hasn't changed much, so I'm probably touting the same thing. Get the tool that works the best for you. Heck, I've not even turned on my desktop at home in over a year. I do everything on a laptop these days and I game mostly on my consoles. < Not the "best" solution on any front, but it fits the bill perfectly.
