    Very little has changed since the pictures where taken in the summer of .12

    I've changed the keyboard for a Logitech G710+ and the mouse is now a G700 instead of the mamba

    Chasis:
    corsair graphite 600t white edition

    Motherboard:
    ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z/GEN3, Socket-1155

    Memory:
    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 16GB CL8 <- Will be changed soon as it is faulting

    CPU:
    Intel Core i5-2500K Processor

    Storage:
    Samsung SSD 830 Series 256GB 2.5"
    2tb WD thingy

    GPU:
    Nvidia GTX670

    PSU:
    Corsair AX 850W PSU

    Soundcard:
    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD

    Monitors:
    2xSamsung 27" LED Syncmaster S27A350H <- Gonna get 1 maybe two 3d monitors instead :P

    Keyboard:*
    Razer Anansi <- Changed for the Logitech 710+


    Mice:*
    Razer Mamba 2012
    Logitech G700

    Headphones:*
    Beyerdynamic MMX 300 custom, Black with metallic pink details


    Under the middle of the monitors is the Xbox 360 connected to the speakers on each side of the monitors far sides, I'm not sure what their brand is since I've forgotten, but to be that small and cheap, they have a really high oomf for the money !



    Can't post pictures yet :P

    And there we go. I'm now on my "classic" rig with new case. Bridged internet connection via laptop though... :P

    Fortress 03 Titan
    OCZ ZT 750w
    i5 2500k w/ H80
    Asus Z68 Maximus Gene-Z
    Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB), 1600MHz 1.5v
    Gainward GTX 560ti
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

    Using
    Dell U2312HM*
    Steelseries 6Gv2 Black
    Steelseries Sensei Raw
    as peripherals

    * Technically, monitor belongs to my brother. However, I got a 30" IPS 2560x1600 monitor today... And decided he can borrow it, since the 560ti won't be able to drive that resolution!

    Hopefully I'll get a good chance to take pictures of everything tomorrow. It looks pretty darn good, although cable management isn't what I'd consider ideal. Too long cables on powersupply mixed with a tiny, tiny case...

    What video card setup do you plan on running with that setup. Kinda weird that you have a 750w for a 560ti or are you planning on getting another 560ti.

    560 SLI at this point would be pretty silly, I suspect either a 680/7970 Ghz or waiting for next gen...

    No plans to add another videocard. 750w powersupply just sort of happened because OCZ ZT ones are stupid cheap. I'd replace the videocard outright if I had any reason to expect delivery to arrive before I travel away back to college Sunday. So nothing will be happening until I get back, I think.

    Beautiful setup, clearing tubing is my favorite kind of tubing because the LED's sorta glow it up on their own

    I just looked up the Rasa 450 RX120 - would you know how it compares to H80i, which is basically does the same thing with a thinner rad and drastically easier installation (+ way lower risk)?
    Or did you buy it with expandability in mind, perhaps to add a 240/360 rad and throwing the GPU into the loop in the future?

    Also what case do you have there? Too dark to see :P

    So I decided to test my new D3100 camera by taking some supplementary shots of my brother's PC. Note that this is just a showcase of the coolant color. When I can be arsed, I'll take more pictures of the new tube res and pump config.

    With the build and picture quality you have going on lately I think you are getting close to http://www.million-dollar-pc.com/

    Pffffft. Not at all.

    Did you know that the Reventon guy actually repainted the case again? Because the front and sides' texture wasn't a perfect match... Then, IIRC, he also resleeved the powersupply, etc... I can't compare at all.

    Ya but then again his case is totally hideous.

    Update: New cases [Enermax Ostrog White, Antec 300 (reuse)] all around will post pics and spec later, too many damn parts lying around rooms a mess.

    If it serves the purpose then why really, that system will not even pull ~300w so even if the PSU is bad quality it's not going to come anywhere close to it's limits. Unless you really really want a modular one...or are really really afraid of the GX series :P

    Lol. You call the RV01 ugly and then go for Antec 300...

    Anyway, I don't especially care about your opinion of the case itself; what you cannot deny is that the guy is good at what he does. Your taste of aesthetics should not be a hindrance in recognizing this guy is ridiculously dedicated and thorough.

    It's more the fact that for some reason it's making a slight buzzing noise which is off putting haha. It's not really loud, my girlfriend can't even hear it but sometimes it does get loud enough to annoy me. I don't know whether it's actually the PSU as it sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't, but meh! I'll stick with it for now :P
