MY EYES, THEY BURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
once my P5K Premium B.P Edit and Q6600 arrive ill be sure to drop some pictures on here
This is my new favorite case, 830K. Picked it over the armor suit and Antec 1200. Has the monolithic front of a Lian-Li with the black interior and side window of the Antec... and no crappy logos to muck it up. In the last pic you can make out my black cardboard duct that moves air straight through the floor mesh onto the card fan. When I get my 4870X2 it will be completely isolated from the rest of the system since it only pumps air out the back.
That batwing fan has like the best noise/airflow ratio ever. 70 CFM at 18 dB.
Really nice dude.
@ LAN derf ha
Patriot Ram FTW!!
This is about month and a half old.
The Black Knight
This Skulltrail Rig is my daily driver. I use it for Crunching (WCG BOINC) and Folding (GPU2) as well as work and play. It runs 24/7 off an external cooler.
Latest upgrade is the 4 Samsung F1 drives in RAID5 (2TB) and the VelociRaptor.
Hard to see but there is an Areca 1210 Raid Controller in the top PCIe slot and an X-Fi Xtreme Music right under the first HD3870X2.
This is pretty much the last rig I will be building for myself as I don't even really deserve one this nice
Holy mother of God.
Wow thats alot of space I have a little over 1TB in basicly a raid 1 setup and i thought that was alot but guess not...Great job with the wiring on the HD's especially on the sata cables, very neat
Oh and what case is that?
Here's a quick build for the Family. Basically used as an HTPC in the Living Room driving a 52" Samsung LCD.
I did not lavish much attention on this one but it does the job.
I must sing the praises of this Enzotech cooler...it's about as good as Liquid Cooling if it can grab enough fresh air.
The RAM gets really hot so I just put that OCZ cooler on there.
QX9650 on a GA-X38 DQ6 with 8GB of G SKill DDR2 1000. The 150GB RaptorX is kind of a waste since you cannot see it lol and a pair of Hitachi Deathstars are good for raising the case temp about 20C. It's a hot running box to be sure.
OMG sexy case!! what is it?
Edit nvm its a Soldam Alcadia XR-1 NRS But i cant find it for sale
That's one impressive rig
Is that painted, or anodised on the inside? or did it come like that?
Here is mine:
I'm confused, forgot how to make pics big and clickable like all the others...
the pictures dont work mate
Thanks for the compliments guys: it's my preciousssssss
The case is anodized that color and that's how it comes from Soldam.
Soldam? Never heard of em
They're a decent company, my friend bought one of their CD/DVD drives once because he was too lazy to do his own paint job. :shadedshu
Their Pandora series of cube cases is nice too. (Their site is confusing, just Google their products its easier)
Here's my rig atm
Can you fit inside that little space?
My knees usually get whacked say if the phone is ringing.
Dual Du Orb and tracer led are crazy bright in the dark.
lol it kinda looks a face. Very awesome
I like the duOrb for video cards but dont much fancy them as CPU coolers.
Could Not Stand the Spaghetti
I was a little bored yesterday so I redid the LianLi rig.
Replaced all the cheapo LED Coolermaster fans with SanAce1011 103.5 CFM units exceptforthe HDD caddy which I put a stock LL fan into. Angled one of crappy CM fans at the RAM (cable ties FTW) and found a LL squirrel cage fan to draw heat of the GFX. I also had a 90mm TT fan laying around that fit perfectly on top of the card to blow more heat out the back through the open PCI slot.
Results are a stunning 15C drop in load temps at the same settings. CFM
So I cranked it up to 4ghz and did some prime95 stress testing and then set it to Crunching for WCG BOINC. Currently running 4ghz load for 12 hours at 60C with Side Panel on, 55C with it off, CPU fan on medium.
Room for a dualie rad now too
The CPU fan control is on a PCI plate. At medium it's tolerable but loud, on full it's too loud, but the temps do drop another 4-5C.
Considering lining the interior with sound dampening. But it's a great improvement over the "before" where I was getting 55-60C load temps at 3.33Ghz.
