    Might as well post my build:

    i7 3960X @ 4GHz (While I wait for my new water cooling parts, of course. Currently running Corsair H100 w/ Corsair Link)
    Asus Rampage IV Extreme
    4x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaw Z @ 2133
    Asus GTX580 MarsII @ Standard 782MHz
    Asus Xonar 1.3 Deluxe
    OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 (240GB, games and heavy software)
    Patriot Pyro SE 240GB (Boot drive)
    Corsair Force 3 120GB (Old boot drive, i still dont know what to do with this)
    1x Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB
    Corsair AX1200

    Keyboard: Logitech G19 (Being replaced)
    Mouse: Razer Mamba '12
    Headset: Astro A40 (Being replaced)
    Monitor: 2x Asus VE247, 1x ViewSonic V3D245

    Other stuff:
    Xbox 360 Halo Reach Edition
    PS3 Slim (260gb?)
    Asus Xonar Essence One
    MSI GTR683DXR
    A donut from hesburger
    Woody PEZ Dispenser

    Some general pictures:





    That said, I'd take a picture of the complete inside, but it's messy. I'm still waiting for my new cables so I can do a better job with the cable management along with new stands for the Asus monitors. And yes, I might have too much money, just don't ask about my server setup.

    (PS: Razer Goliathus is a pretty terrible mousepad if you use a dual sensor mouse, just saying.)

    How are you planning to watercool it? *curious*

    I'm just gonna ramble here for a second now, and say that I'm considering dremeling a third fan slot in the top and get to work arranging so a 360 rad can be mounted in my old Level 10 GT. I'm not planning to use it for my own computer, but I might be inclined to do something else entirely with it.

    otherwise, awesome build, but you need to move your RAM if you haven't already, you aren't running in quad channel mode, put your DIMMs into the red slots

    Totally agree with this, he really went far when he did the Fractal Design Define R3 vs NZXT H2 video because everyone was like omg the H2 is so good, even after his first review, so in that versus video he really went the extra mile and showed up NZXT and it became apparent really how good Fractal's chassis is, the H2 is not special. lol

    There is now a computer chat thread, and we will enforce harsher rules here.
    Consider this a warning.

    More gaming builds, less off-topic!


    Off-topic discussions goes here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...um-chat-thread

    Hey, i'm in Iowa. Marshalltown precisely.

    But these types of messages are not allowed in here anymore.

    is that to mean that anything other then posted gaming builds is not allowed?

    perhaps some clarification is needed on what is expected from the moderators in this thread, this thread is in fact meant for posting gaming setups and discussing said setups, how much discussion is allowed before infractions get handed out? What is so wrong about the OT discussions within this thread? as most are sparked by posted setups, so how far away from topic is a discussion allowed to get before it is deemed OT and needs to be moved elsewhere?

    It is of course allowed to critique and offer opinions on them.

    Posting about your upcoming plans is fine.

    Posting friends' builds are fine. Possibly even the one odd non-gaming computer, or retro one.

    Posting about cable management and general improving on ones gaming builds' esthetics is fine.

    Going off-topic enough to post videos on comparing two cases that were not at all brought up on-topic is too far off-topic.

    Where to draw the line on where too much back-and-forth regarding nit-picking details or answering about suggestions on doing water cooling, I don't think I'm able to offer a definition of, before I sleep on it. (Being awake for 40 hours really does me no favours as far as coherent thinking or English is concerned)

    Thank you for asking for the clarification though!
    If others have suggestions and such and whatnot, we always listen. But as always, the proper venue is recommended.
    In this case, the Computer forum Chat thread.

    Quite coincidental that you mention retro builds! I was tearing down an old PC from work and decided to take some pics, here's the album: http://imgur.com/a/l2fGu
