    Hmm the fancontroller & ledthingy died? I've had this like 5 times. Once it happened when the system was running I was unplugging the 3pin and hopla no fans more spinning & no lights at all.

    Yep, exactly that. Pump stopped running as well. I got a few EKWB branded boxes and plastic bags stacked in my desk waiting for the 900D to be released though. I think I'm done with Closed loop coolers for now tbh, too much hassle when they keep dying like that.

    I've rma'ed the older H100 like 10 times? Diablotek PSU's are even more reliable than H100's -_-

    My setup isn't that great or anything.. But I can run SWTOR at the maximum settings with everything working smoothly and having a steady 60-70 FPS.
    (I also asked for advice for a new rig to build it myself a while ago, but I figured I'd upgrade my graphics card and stick it with that for a while, save up more money and get myself a more expensive, 'better working' rig)

    My case: Standard Dell XPS.

    Motherboard: Intel i7-2600 @3.40 Ghz
    Card: MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr
    Ram: 12 GB (odd number, I went from 8 to 12)
    HDD: 1,5TB and a 250gb disk for my music/movies.

    I'll be posting pictures later, of my messy desk.. And a Yoda candybowl-holder. ;D Oh, and ofcourse.. The STAR of my desk.. My Guinea Pig.

    Real guinea pig! Friend of mine her guinea pig got pregnant and had little ones.. So, I'm taking care of one of those. ;p (was just a bit too much for her)

    Ah well, my setup isn't that special.. But it's my setup, and I'm very comfortable here. <3

    Guinea pigs are like cordless, autonomous computer mice that make a hell of a racket


    Try to get a partner for it, they are very social animals and get depressed if they are alone for any period of time.

    Well, oddly enough my guinea pig and dog seem to like eachother. So, that's atleast another animal contact (and I know, I want another guinea pig ;p). I also often take her out of her cage, and she's sitting on my shoulder, under my beard or hiding behind my hair.

    Here are the pics, I'll just post the links, otherwise I might fill up this page too much.

    I'm not a good photographer. And mind the quality aswell, had to use my phone!

    EDIT: (I have to say, the cage looks rather small on the first picture, but it surely isn't)

    Wow haven't seen those towering CD-stackers since forever o_O I remember when those things were essential for any console owner, or music/DVD enthusiast. Now all media sits on fat hard drives :P

    That silver power+usb hub under the monitor is pretty neat.

    Cute pig, I can see hair all over the desk but I guess most pet owners are pretty much used to that :3

    I still buy CD's! Haha. This is more a "personal" collection. My father has so much more. He has like ~1000 albums. All bought. I guess it's something you learn from one of your parents.
    All, the CD-stacker is a second-hand one. ;p Bought it at a second-hand store, as those things are mostly quite expensive. And I still buy most of my games, movies and music. ;p Especially music. I have a sort of always on-going 'competition' with a friend of mine about who has the most albums. Sometimes I'm leading, sometimes he is. And we both enjoy totally different genres so it always makes it more fun to compare the stuff we have.

    As for the hairs.. Well, we also have a dog and 3 cats. So, hairs fly around quite easily (or maybe it's my beard, from when I scratch it )

    And the USB/Power-hub.. Oh, yeah, I love it. It's quite convienent. Not truly nesescary, but sometimes I just needed a few extra usb-slots, and now I don't have to worry that much.


    For my setup that much. I guess it's quite casual compared to others! My chair is more 'pro' then the actual setup, haha!

    Ah, I love it! I won't be buying a Desktop from there for example (I'd just rather not) but sometimes a decent mouse, keyboard, USB/power-hub(!) or an external hard-drive.
    It's not the best selection, but well.. Sometimes it's worth it!

    It it worth the update? I think it is..
    Got myself a new keyboard! I've heard interesting and good things about it, so.. I'm ready to experience that myself.

    I no longer use the standard-Dell keyboard, yaay.

    Thumbnails please! (Sorry, thought it wouldn't be too big)

    I don't want to offend anyone but its interesting how many people with great gaming rigs surround it with terrible furniture and a messy look altogether with thousands of cables lying/hanging around.
    I guess I'm not enough gamer for that.

    Try having a wife, a 2 year old kid and about 90 sq.meters available and see how much room your computer gets... It's not much.

    I feel like it's also meant at me, because well.. My desk is a mess, and not the best furniture (with my chair being the best).
    Well, I guess it's just for how much it actualy bothers the person itself. I have the space I need, the cables don't bother me too much and I'm comfy here! What else do I need?
    ...
    Oh, wait, it's not meant at me.. I don't have a great rig. ;D

    So spent a few hours cleaning out my PC today and making some minor modifications.....

    Full specs:

    Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - Retail @ 4.3
    Asus P8P67 Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard ** B3 REVISION **
    G.Skill RipJawsX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL )
    COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 PLUS CPU COOLER - Push/Pull with 2x Colermaster Beast Master fans
    Corsair TX 650
    Antec 600

    So before my clean up.....




    Quite high temps, and very messy case, terrible cable management and poor airflow.



    My new stuff!
    2x Coolermaster Beastmaster up to 2000rpm fans
    1x Antec TriColool fan
    Bitfenex Recon Fan controller
    Some crap for cleaning




    Everything out and cleaned ready to go back in!



    Cm Hyper 212+ Plus taking up most of the space I have with it's 2 new fans on!




    Finished article! (ish) I'm waiting on some fan dust filters to arrive so haven't cable tied all the cables yet, will try and sort them a little bit once the filters arrive.
    Also added the tri cool fan to the side of the case to increase incoming airflow. Set the intake fans to high speed and outtake to medium. I actually left out the fan controller but had to plug the 2nd fan on the Hyper 212 into the cha_fan slot but it seems to work fine. Running 17c cooler under full load without maxxing out the fans so no complaints from me there. I also removed some HDMI card or something to clear out some space between CPU and GPU. Also moved from having my ssd in one cage and HDD in another, both in the middle slots to having them both in the same one so that the cage all the cables are in has slightly better airflow. Don't think there is too much more I can do with the case too improve the set up.
