My dream setup
Nice pics, dude!
Idid some wire management, and hid the PSU:
I like that black cross fire bridge much better than the standard red/gold. Which cards did it come from? I've been meaning to paint mine black, it's the old kind from a 4870, like the one by your optical.
Came with the Gigabyte X79-UD5. ASUS didn't even include a Crossfire bridge at all, and the ones that came with the cards are a bit too short to work...ASUS failed on that one, thank god I get many boards.
Gotta get the drives under the top too, and the monitor on top still...moving wires was easy, thanks to the modular PSU!
looks good dave,nice job recycling old antec bays!!
Need watercooling for keep fresh my old CPU Q9650 at 4.0 Ghz then a new Heat Killer LC wateblock for the CPU are on the way.
This upgrade/tuning will be the last for my old socket 775 rampage extreme X48.
Best thing about those Antec cases is those drive bays. I just wish my other once had the fan bracket as well, instead of me having to buy one. The case they came out of got DVD drive, SSD on the bottom, and a 2TB drive under the DVD in a hotswap bay, so the drive cages were not needed, and I kept them.
Being able to use them in basically any case with 3x 5.25 bays is pretty nice, too.
Some build I'm working on...
Had a few days off and decided to cleanup my system, here are the results, and hello from me
I put the Scythe fan controller backwards in the case so i dont accidentaly touch the knobs since the CPU cooler fans are pluged in it (Gigabyte is awful with fan controllers i wish Abit still did mobos).
lil GD08 lovin'
Just installed that fan. Found it on a 7 year old modded motherboard. Works fine, shaved 20-25°C off IOH temperatures, noise isn't noticeable.
Choices for "work" rig...
Y no 6870?
For better picture of the fan?
Buy 2 then test and send one back?
LuLz. No, both are review samples. B75 is more "Business-Class", but Z77X-UD5H has WiFi and mSATA.
B75 is mATX, will make for a smaller box on my desk.
Z77X-UD5H is an OC master, from what I've seen so far, but no IVB yet to confirm the same still holds true.
So I'll have to test and choose!
No pics this time but did some adjustments. See sys specs.
Does not count
Guess I can post a few little later.
Nice rig man, huge air cooler!!
That's one clean build!
Dude you gotta get rid of those noctua fans.. otherwise would be flawless.
That actually actually looks like a sky scraper...
are those 1GB 460's?
I received the backplates for my 680s yesterday from EVGA:
Here's the backplate installed:
Along with the hi-flow bracket, this doesn't look like a stock 680 anymore
Both cards installed:
From a different angle:
I also finally used the sticker that came with my RIVE board
My main rig at full throttle:
Will upload more pics once I update my rig again, thanks for your comments guys, and for sharing pics from your PCs!
