    New PC for Revit and Lumion etc arrives

    I was amazed at my new PC - the size of the case for one thing - the jazzy glazed door etc. Maybe it even lights up (the last Geforce I had was always producing coloured lights under the desk).

    I assume this is routine for double/triple/quadruple high performance graphics card machines these days? I was expecting the usual bland black box

    I've had all my PCs built by Workstation Specialists in Derby (UK) for many years and they run forever. Overclocked, water-cooled etc. they seldom give any trouble.

    Just curious if this wide case is common these days?

    Nice one, don't recognize the case but it looks rather wide indeed.
    Mine is 23cm wide and that is already a pretty large case

      Its an option. My machine is physically almost twice the size of Johns and Melissas, and they are all *just about* the same power. I have more GPU and slightly more OC'ing. But its just about what you want, and the trade off on space vs heat.

      The one on the back table (farther away, in the laptop picture) is the standard size one. Both of *mine* are larger, but i like them.

          Have not seen those that commonly, think the biggest use for the wide case is a hide placement for the power supply and maybe some better cable management or hard drives. Because i can not see a power supply in there.

          Personally i always use Mid tower or Micro ATX.
          Your pc case is more of a cube tower :laugh:

          Wondering what they actually used all that space for. But your most likely not going to open it up anyways.

          Are those Gigabyte cards? They kind of look like them since Gigabyte always has that simple design compared to the competition.
          You also got a 10th gen intel CPU in there i suppose? 10900k?

            The power supply sits in its own space it seems, adding a lot of width but giving it plenty of airspace I guess.
            The box is a Corsair Carbide Series Air 540.
            No fine filters on this one - just a metal mesh.
            The full spec is:
            Processor
            1 x Workstation Enhanced Intel Core i9-10900X (@ upto 4.3GHz) 10C/20T Processor with 3x120mm Liquid Cooler £0.00
            Memory
            1 x 64GB (4x 16GB) 3200MHz Quad Channel DDR4 Memory £0.00

            1 x NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - 11GB GDDR6 Graphics Card (4352x Cores) £0.00
            Graphics / GPU 2
            1 x NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - 11GB GDDR6 Graphics Card (4352x Cores) £0.00

              Hmm, wondering, why did you go with the 10900x instead of the 10900k? Because the 10900k is pretty much the same CPU but with better clock speeds. For pretty much the same price. Or did you get an overclock?

              No filters in that case? Not that big of a problem but you might have to clean it somewhat more often.
              but the airflow should be good on that case yes.

              Also wondering when seeing your first picture: there is no SLI bridge between the cards? I thought that was always needed for the cards. Or do you only use 1 at a time? For each program.

              Personally i still use a 980ti for my lumion work, but soon i want to upgrade to a 3000 gen Nvidia card.

              Shame we have to work with these boring OEM computers:
              The cable management on ours is h-h-hidious. (fun fact, the m.2 nvme drives hang right off the motherboard, and are actually screwed into the case itself)

                Love those EVGA cards, the heatsinks on those are massive :laugh:

                  Yes, it is an over-clocked system. No SLI bridge. To be honest I just tell the PC builders what software I use and how I use it, they give me a recommendation with some suggestions on options which I always go with and that's it

                    Life likes to have it's little joke - so, there is no 2nd Drive showing up on first boot of the new PC.

                    Hmmm, power-off, earth check, open glazed door in PC case, everything cable-tied including the clips for the 2nd hard disk. Handy that access is so good - I give the hard disk a little push - and it moves snugly on to the connectors. Sorted... Phew

                    I did notice a gash in the side of the outer very large cardboard box which suggested it had been thrown around - I'll mention it to the manufacturers as they had gone to a lot of trouble with packaging. There was this sort of 2 part foam mix blanket. Not seen that before - looks like you press 'A' and 'B' on the front of the blanket and the chemicals mix within the blanket and swell to fill the inside of the PC case.
