Not gona win any awards, but I am happy with how operation cheap skate turned out
Only spent $550 for the cpu, mobo, gpu, memory, ssd, and case along with the drives, psu, and heatsink I already had. This Lian Li case with aluminium paneling looks so much classier on the outside than all the gaudy plastic cases I've had over the years too.
you've done a great job, it's nice and tidy ok it could with a black interior but $550 you've done bloody well I say
It looks clean enough to preform surgery in
Love the angle of that shot.
You must be very happy with the rig Congrats on building it It looks an awesome build
Got another GTX670. Strangly enough, I don't feel the need to put it in SLI just yet.
Most of the games I'm playing are old and less demanding. A single card could handle them easily even at max setting.
Decided to put another HDD cage back in so I can add more HDD in the future.
Tidied up cables a bit. My 'VGA fan' now is secured in place with duck tape.
Cable management is difficult at the back of HDD cage, where space is very limited.
My new mouse!!! Corsair M60 is so darn beautiful with aluminium unibody. It's very comfortable too.
nice setup u ve got there silapakorn!
case is one of my favs. & that Galaxy card looks cool.. u should have bought 2 of the same!
They are the same, dude.
you should be able to keep pushing with temps like that.
41 idle is slightly high but 62 load is great. you needn't be concerned about temps until ~75 depending on preference.
how exactly is the mobo damaged? I had a "damaged" x48 board(both LAN controllers and audio went POOF!) that pushed my b3 q6600 to 3.6 stable.
My final upgrade pics will be coming shortly!! Ah, that's a good feeling.
I just ordered my 2nd and 3rd monitors yesterday (Dell U2412m).
And I just realized my most recent picture is with my Samsung 22" monitor, not my current single Dell 24".
Well, use your imagination. The monitors shipped this morning.

Hey, that's my mouse! Beware though, don't use it at an angle it will fuck with your wrist.
yep, i'm jealous.
Did it come with a heating pad for the back of the socket or did you have to insulate like crazy?
3 layers of liquid tape, armaflex tape and a few J cloths..
Would you mind sharing where you found one new?
How loud is the compressor?
Ebay, it's quiet to be honest
antuk15, may I ask you how's it called? I see it's a Lian Li case but what's its model?
wow you have found the prometeia xd http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1793
its very cool but how much is power consumption?
I THINK it's an old pc07
It's the old PC-7B mated with a Mach 2 GT Phase unit.
Prometeia made a Lian Li kit for the Mach 2 that made it look like a Lian Li case, you buy them both separate and the case bolts to the top of the phase unit.
The phase unit is not stock and has had a lot of work carried out, it easily handles 300w heat load and my 2500k even at 5.3Ghz @ 1.5v only increases the temps by 6c under Intel burn test.
Power consumption is ok, maybe an extra £10-15 a month but it's worth it for the coolness and extra performance it brings.
well greetings for the mach 2 xd i have saw more time ago but is difficult to find and very expensive ,but is worth it, better than spend money for liquid nitrogen and stuff xd
well, yeah, congratulations on a great buy antuk!
Found your vid's on youtube, did you ever figure out what the popping noise was? that sounds disconcerting and it does add a fair bit of noise from just your liquid setup but its really not that bad, sounds kinda like a server room
It's because my 2500k does produce enough heat to evaporate all of the refridgerant so it floods back.
It's been fixed now though, had a tiny bit of gas removed and turned my 2500k dial up to 11 so now its kicks out enough heat.
And its not that loud, my phone amplifies it and makes it sound louder then it actually is.
What are you running it at?
