Post Your Rig!

Postby DMB2000uk » Thu May 01, 2008 3:08 pm

So we call ourselves enthusiasts, and yet there is a definite lack of pictures of peoples PC's on this forum.

I think we should change that in this thread and get as many people posting their rig as we can. I don't care how old or how dusty it is (maybe this will give you the much needed kick up the backside to clean it :axe: )

I know I (and at least Bio :finga: ) love to get as much exposure to our rigs as possible, so will be taking this opportunity to post a picture of it yet again :P

In terms of picture guidelines:
    - If you need an image hosting service try; imageshack, flicker, photobucket (or even use the attachment feature on these forums)
    - I think it would be best if we can see the insides, so a shot with the side off.
    - If you think the outside of your case is special too, you can post that as well (I'm a picture whore, so the more the better!)
    - I think also rig specs would work great too.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To start us off here is my rig:

Image

Specs in sig; except CPU is: E6600 @ 3Ghz


So what are you waiting for! Get to it! Post post post!

Second picture is my Ultra X3 (Thanks LR!) crammed in the case. Notice the amount of gap between the PSU cables and the optical drives!

This isn't the most recent. I've upgraded the PSU and Ram since this was taken. I also did a bit of wire maintenance.

wow suprised at the amount of stock coolers in this thread :-k well ill go ahead and post mine rig (the most extreme so far imo 8) )
@sparky: you should consider moving to sata disc drives, it would do wonders for your wire management
Image
rig in sig. as for cooling, water cooled cpu and northbridge, one 120mm fan pulling off the rad, one pushing on it. two front 120mm fans, and two 92mm fans on the top to get the hot air out. more pics on the chuck norris rig thread in the modding section

Thanks martini161 I'll check in to that when I get a chance and some $$$. I had a couple of CD/DVD drives that were IDE so I went ahead and used them. When I built the rig I was running 3 HD's and now down to 2. Left space between them so the front fans (case is Antec Nine Hunderd) would blow air accross the drives, but I see your point with regards to the IDE clutter, SATA cables are far cleaner.

Stock cooling works just fine for me. I only do extreme overclocks when I benchmark, otherwise I keep the overclock moderate to extend the life of the system.

At stock speeds you can under-volt the cpu so it runs every cooler. My E6750 is running prime stable at 1.15v and 26c. When I want power, I step it up to 1.4v.

From the EXTREME to the non extreme..... Just look at the Athlon 2900 and bask in the glory of the 9600PRO

Athlon 2900 + 9600PRO + Chaintech MB + 1GB PC3200 = I need a new computer
