    So basically I want to name my new build. Usually I give a dumb name to my builds, like InerTia* (Custom graphics on my last build).

    So basically I just ordered myself a white Phantom so I need a name. Sounds really immature but its my thing.

    Suggestions? Sig Rig.

    name it after something you like, for example you could call it Dr pepper, or kittens (but not marmite, I've just decided to call my pc that)

    it comes from the system it self, like if your rig pretty powerfull you can use like 'hercules'
    if you use water cooling and make it silence you can use 'silent hill' maybe like the game title
    if you like extreme things and unbeatable you can use 'zeus'
    or you compile from many names like 'arch' athlon, rog, corsair and heavy (like you oc it)

    Ha !

    Mine's staying Knuckle Stripping Hexie until I
    get my new case hopefully next week. I should
    be able to OC it more with 5 fans as opposed to
    none and the new one is pretty cool looking.

    BlackHole

    Afterburner

    FTL

    Which movie, Event Horizon? I've seen it, but I wasn't thinking of that. But shit it was scary...

    I'm really interested in black holes and faster than light travel. :rockout:

    oh yeah, i was 14 when i watched it the first time, at night... man was i scared!:laugh:
    You really are? I also am interested in that, but i assumed, that no matter what happens, we wont see the time, when humanity found the ways, with which it can trick out the Heisenberg-Effect, general relativity and such.... so i was more focused on how quantum effects change the human brain, and how the Human brain, changes Quantum effects...or even communicates.. like in your a name (with QUantumBITS);)

    I'm kind of in the same situation - I'm trying to get a job once summer comes around, at which time I'll be trying to build a new PC, and I've decided on a dark brushed aluminum case (still looking for a specific one, though) and I'm moving from C (Coldkill) to D, and I was thinking something like Deathsteel or alike...... don't steal that though.

    White NZXT Phantom?

    From the amazing Neuromancer book by William Gibson there is one name that might be well apt:
    "Wintermute"

    I usally find a "universal" name that does not need changing all the time suits me best, so I call mine "computer" it works for me, I did try more creative names in the past like "Phantom" but it didn't run to me when I called it, didn't talk to me when I whispered it's name and didn't get any faster when I decided to call it "lightning" so I came to the conclusion that it wasn't a living being, therefore "computer" worked well..... I'm just a simple man though :cool:
    digibucc, scaminatrix, gumpty and 2 others say thanks.
