Building a New Dual Intel/AMD Triple 2560×1440 Display 5Ft High PC System


The ASRock is the best board we have ever used for testing purposes because there are just so many features included.  the only feature that would have been nice to see here would have been the addition of a native PCIe M.2 slot, but then again, where would they put it?  Once again, LEDs are courtesy of both Micron and Cooler Master as we described in the AMD Bench a page back.  Many of the components are the same but you may notice our use of the single fan Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid CPU Cooler, rather than dual of the AMD system.

The final part of the puzzle consists of assembling the four pieces of the 2 CM HAF Stacker 935 chassis’ that were used.  It stands 4’8” high and is capable of standing higher as there is no limit to the number (or configuration) of HAF Stacker chassis’ you can stack.

This is a look at how we have it sitting on our desk in the office.  W3 can tell you first hand that, once in place, it is not the best idea to try to move it as a single unit.  It just might fall over, destroying an amazing build!

    Now that is what I call a “tower” system. Good thing you don’t live in an earthquake-prone area!

    I can’t wait to hear more about the AMD board. The Extreme 11a and HGSTs are amazing hardware. Thanks for helping me decide.
