You're very welcome. lol
That'd be the goal. I'd like to get our company enough of a customer base to have dedicated techs for different departments. I love doing custom work. It let's me use my creative side a bit more. I'd like to get some customers with a higher budget so I can do more, like custom loop water cooling and custom cable sleeving.
I recommended the 1070, but the grandson was pretty set on the 980 because that is what our competitor listed at the time of the build. It's always tough to try to change a child's mind. lol. He was very happy with the results though. I must admit, I am too.
Oh I definitely will. Hopefully it'll get featured! Thanks!
I mean, you know..... burning 'data' discs. lol. But the cable management is something NZXT has always done well in their cases.
I started my custom loop the beginning of this year. Buying piece by piece until i have everything of course. Adulting makes it tough. lol. But when it's done, it'll be my first custom loop. I'm excited for it.
I must say, I've always loved Mini and Micro builds. I've done a few for some friends, but nothing worth posting really. They were very basic and were really just for schoolwork and portability to and from campus. I love this build, though. I know the water cooling cuts down on a lot of noise. How loud is it under load would you say?
I used the exact same case for my first build. I love the look of the NZXT cases. I burn a lot of data discs though so the door in the front got a bit annoying. Great build though! Looks very clean.
My first rig was the NZXT Phantom full tower in white. I thought of so many things I could do with the design of that on the external. Then over the years I really got into the water cooling and custom sleeving. Now I'm more interested in the plain looking cases with crazily modded out internals. I'm running my current system in a Corsair 900D 'Ultra' Tower.
He wanted the liquid cooling. I thought it was rather silly too, honestly. But he wanted the same hardware that this other competitor had. It was only like $40 bucks so it didn't really break the bank or anything.
We asked the client whether he wanted the white Phantek or the black. At first he said white and I thought, this thing is totally gonna look like a stormtrooper and I got excited. But he changed his mind when he realized that white would get dirty after a while. So black was the easy choice
Delivering it to the client, the grandson literally could not even wait for me to get it out and set it up for them. Haha. It was like a puppy on your legs when you're walking through your house with food in your hand. He was very excited. He's young, but the little guy sure knows a pretty good amount about PCs. I'm sure he'll make an awesome system builder some day if he pursues it.
We ended up totally charging $1,999.99 plus tax. We're a small company. Only three of us work here including the owner. Since this was pretty much the company's first custom build we went easy on the profit hoping to use that as "word of mouth" advertisement. This particular customer is a pretty well connected business owner.
My personal rig is green. I haven't put a completed build up for it yet because I don't think i'll ever officially complete it. lol. My first rig was blue (my friend owns it now) and it looked killer. Blue is definitely a PC classic
Good call. I just checked his build before it got deleted. looked fishy to me. thanks.
I mean, that's actually very offensive. This was a budget build for a customer who wasn't going to drop more than 2 grand on a system. So take your disgusting criticism somewhere else.
I spy IKEA furniture. lol. Nice build. looks like you took some good time with part placement and clearance
