i will be buying this build tomorrow and i want to know your opinion about it for only the performance and not the price because i am very satisfied with the price i will be doing Very Extreme gaming like crysis and i want to run it at every thing maxed and i will be doing many Cad and Encoding as well and i will store many Music,films and Games and i will overclock the cpu to 4.5 ghz and may be more if it ran stable so plz don't comment on the price and don't comment telling me that this is an overkill

The 3 GTX 285 cards should give you about 42 fps in Crysis Warhead at 2560x1600 or 56 fps at 1920x1200. Not bad...
http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/1727/6/nvidia_geforce_gtx_285_in_tri_sli_tested/index.html

Two GTX 295 cards would give you about 46 fps at 1920x1200, so it's a weaker combination. I think you made the right choice with the 3 GTX 285 cards, but I had to check to be sure.

Just curious, how much does this all cost? I promise not to comment on that, I just want to know :) 

The box will be noisy with 6 fans at 1900 rpm. Not so much the fans, but the airflow in itself will be noisy. Since you're using watercooling, do you really need that many fans, and such a high rpm? Maybe downgrade to SFF21E...

The Samsung 305T is a fabulous monitor for watching Blu-Ray, but I'm not sure it's ideal for gaming. Some reviewers complained about lagging.
March 5, 2009 1:29:21 PM

it will cost about 10 grands with everything if the samsung isn't the best what is the best 30" monitor

Oops, I forgot the link for the GTX 295 SLI review.
http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews.php?reviewid=711&pageid=7

These reviewers used a 305T, so maybe it's OK after all. :) 

The first review used an i7 920 at 3.8, and the second review a stock i7 965 at 3.2 GHz. I guess that gave the GTX 285 Tri-SLI an unfair advantage in my comparison. Still, I think the GTX 285 Tri-SLI would win even with CPUs at the same clocks, it will just be by 5 fps or so instead of 10.

i will consider downgrading to the sff21E

I don't know, sorry. I've read some very good reviews for some Dell or HP models in the past, but I still liked the 305T more. 30" monitors AFAIK use high-quality panels, not the cheap TN. That makes them look great but it means a lower response time in gaming.
March 5, 2009 1:36:22 PM

so what about the LG 30" will it be better in gaming ?
March 5, 2009 1:51:40 PM

I'm a little confused by the HAF case (High Air Flow) when you are using water cooling. Why not get a nice case more geared towards water cooling. For the money you are throwing down, I would pick up a high end Lian Li.

As for a 30" gaming monitor. This Awesome Thread recommends Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC. I'm sure a 30" LG would be great as well, LG makes some great displays for gaming.

dude...try to find some review on Samsung Synmaster 305T on net. I doubt that you find 20 people here to give you feedback based on personal experience on this:-) In Germany it costs over 1000 EUR (1300$)…but Samsungs are pretty popular overhere and I am also one of the happy users -only “lousy” 26inch Samsung Syncmaster T260 (before I had 226BW – 22inch) but I can only recommend it. Brilliant colors, good brightness, fast reaction time, no dead pixels…in both cases. Samsung is very reliable brand.
March 5, 2009 5:02:41 PM

what Lian Li do yo suggest ?
March 5, 2009 5:21:33 PM

Search for Lian Li PC-A7* there are a few different ones starting with that name which have slightly different features.

Yes +1.

Lian-Li PC-V2010 would be my pick. I have an older, smaller version of that case and the craftsmanship is unbelievable. The compartmentalized design is really effective at reducing clutter.

Check out there whole line: http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product04.php?cl_i...

Use google shopping for the best prices since only so many online retailers carry them.
March 5, 2009 5:35:56 PM

i will get LIAN LI PC-V2110B Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail instead of the HAF and i will get LG W3000H-Bn Black 30" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ HDCP Support 370 cd/m2 3000:1 w/ 4 USB ports - Retail becasue it has less response time than the samsung

Edit: will the LIAN LI PC-P80 be better than the PC-V2110B
March 5, 2009 5:44:21 PM

Looks good if price is not an issue. Would you conisder getting a second monitor? Might make your productivity a little bit better for cad and video encoding ect....

For monitors i thought that new 30"dell was the best in that breed right now (at least for a gaming point of view)? I'm probally wrong on this on.

I'm interrested as well how this build turns out. I'm curious to know if you can get to 4.5ghz and stay stable at that. Just as a warning if your seirous about staying at 4.5ghz it "might" shorten the life of your cpu some depending on how you are getting it that high (high voltages...ect). If ya don't mind post us some pics please :) . That build looks like some serious bussiness for a gamer.

I MUCH prefer the layout of the PC-V series. That PC-V2110B is basically the same case I recommended but with a door on the front. I don't usually care for doors but that's a matter of taste. Either way, I think you'll be very happy with it.
March 5, 2009 5:56:10 PM

my friend just told me that he has the PC-V2110B and he is telling me that i was dumb to get the HAF while getting a water cooling so i will get the LIan LI PC-V2110B

The P80 does have 10 expansion slots versus 8 on the PCV2110B. It also has watercooling inlets already drilled. I guess I wouldn't decide on the V2110B so soon.

Check out this page for the specs and photos: http://www.lian-li.com.tw/v2/en/product/product06.php?p...
March 5, 2009 6:11:42 PM

damn it it seems that the P80 will suit me better so i will get it
March 5, 2009 6:30:50 PM

Both cases look superb, but the P80 might give you the most flexibility for a watercooling setup. Good luck!
