Awesome! Now your rig looks badass! :drool:

ScottDoom Dec 3, 2009 10:13 AM

Holy crap. Is that like $1,000 in video cards or what?

gzunk Dec 3, 2009 10:45 AM

More, because I live in "Rip-off Britain". They worked out at about $815 each after tax, and that's *before* all the e-tailers put their prices up by $150 (£100) because the 5970 is so hard to get hold of.

Ahhh I can make another meaningful contribution to the thread.... my newest build. This one replaces the last Q6600 desktop with the massive water cooling rig (soon to be for sale), but improves on it almost across the board with lower power consumption at stock speeds.


All built up around a Core i7 860, 8GB of DDR3 1600, an HD 5750, a Xonar DX, an X25-M 80GB, and a 400W Corsair PSU. Dang this thing is fast. :)


Oh and coming soon is a revision of my Mini ITX rig.

Nice, i have that same case (my Lian LAN).

And holy crap, gzunkp.
Must be nice to be rich. :eek:

Some people are willing to forgo food and similar amenities in order to acquire more teraflops. For me it's terabytes and multi-megapixel monitors. For others it's sunlight, fresh air, and social lives.

You know.... it is *possible* to go for teraflops and sunlight and social lives. Perhaps not double precision teraflops, sunlight, and social lives.... but definitely single precision.

Nice upgrade!!

Nunz Dec 6, 2009 02:44 PM

Too bad one of those cards are defective.. eh? :(

Got mad at the ****ty wiring job I did when I installed the GTX 285's and the Corsair TX850 power supply. So I spent an hour an took the pc completely apart and rewired it:





Yes I moved my DVDRW drives to the bottom of the case. Mainly because it requires less effort to insert a DVD when they are down here (lol), and two it allows me to shove my unused power cables in the gap between the bottom drive and the bottom of the case.

I also went against corsairs reccomendation on the H50 cooler. They recommend you have the back fan slot be an intake fan to bring in cold air for the cpu. What I did was install 2 fans on the radiator for a push/pull setup. Took some digging to find screws long enough for the second fan, but it was worth it. Core i5 idles at 34C with 1.4volts at 4GHz and my graphics cards idle at 39C and 42C. Best of all I cant hear my pc anymore, reworking the wires and changing the position of the fans in the front allowed me to turn the fans to low instead of medium.

Next upgrade for me is aftermarket coolers for the GTX 285's. I've seen 86C in Crysis. :eek:, Just a tad too high for my liking and cranking the fan speed means I can hear them. Looking at this:

Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme GTX Pro, supposed to be released sometime this month.

Bet you'd still swap computers with me though :lol:

And I've got the Auzentech Forte 7.1 in there now working well :)

Sorry for the mess. I am going to work on cleaning up the wires. We mainly use this for web surfing, working and printing documents.

Specs: HP Athlon XP 3000+, 2GB RAM, GeForce 6200, 250GB Hard drive.



In the corner of my bedroom, I have this small corner desk setup to surf the web, do some downloading, and e-mails before I sleep or get up in the morning. The HP DV2-1030 is light and thin enough to take to bed and watch some anime before going to bed.

Specs: Athlon Neo 1.6Ghz, 4GB RAM, 12.1" Screen, 320GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit



When I need to get some serious work done, I goto the dining table and boot up my MacBook Pro. A minimalist workspace but there are no distractions. Dining table is usually clear when it isn't mealtime so it's easy to focus.

Specs: MacBook Pro 15" 2.53Ghz Unibody, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, Snow Leopard.



HP Mini 110 used to quickly jump on the web and e-mail while watching TV. I also take this thing with me on vacation since it's so light and does it's job very well. I dumped the Vaio P for this and haven't looked back since.

The mini mainly resides in my car so I can easily pull it out when I'm at a coffee shop or wherever WiFi is available

Specs: Intel Atom 270, 10" Screen, 2GB RAM, 160GB Hard Drive

Dell PowerEdge T300 Server case.
Cable management at about 90% completed.

Here are a couple shots of mine. Please mind the wireing mess at the bottom...this damn Antec P-180 case is a b**ch for wireing IMO.

LOL and it doubles as a wrist rest for the mouse!

You guys don't keep pastries next to your computer?

Gandalfthewhite Dec 17, 2009 02:50 PM

Maybe, but it wouldn't be worth it since I already run every game roaring, and I don't play anything that intensive besides NFS: Shift and Empire: Total War

My cats would just love that :). I have one that has developed a taste for biscuits, and I'm sure a pastry looks
allot like a biscuit to a hungry cat.
