    My computer setup, old pc I know. Upgrading soon

    Internal:
    CPU: Intel Core2 Duo CPU E7300 2.66GHz

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (1gb)

    RAM: 4gb (dont know what model)

    Motherboard: Asus P5KPL/1600

    HDD 500gb harddiver (dont know what model)


    External:
    Screen: Philips (dont know what model) 1920x1200

    Keyboard: Razer anansi

    Mouse:Logitech MX 518 optical gaming mouse 1800dpi

    Headset: Razer Characias

    HDD Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0

    It manages BF3 on lowest graph + 1920x1080 with around 12 people at 15-25fps so im happy
    Wow at medium/high settings in bgs- 40-80fps (and FPS drops at LM when it's a big fight)

    Finished my first build a few weeks ago but never got round to putting any pictures up so here goes, be nice :P and yes those front filters do need a clean (dogs + summer = hair storm)









    Specs:

    i7 4770k 4.6Ghz @ 1.225v
    Corsair H100i with 2x NF-F12s in Pull
    Asus z87 Sabertooth
    16gb Corsair Vengeance @ 1600mhz
    SLI Gigabyte WF 3x 770s (currently at 1181/1833 although there's a lot more room to up the mem clock and a tad more on the core)
    Samsung 840 250GB SSD
    WD Blue 1TB
    Corsair AX860
    Corsair 600t

    Also stumped up for a set of corsair's white cables and replaced all the stock fans with 2x SP120 (currently using as side intakes), 2x AF120 (1 in drive bay, 1 rear exhaust) and a 200mm Spectre PRO down front. Plus ofc I had to put some pretty white LEDs in it.

    Still a couple of silly aesthetic things I need to sort out, like getting hold of a black sli bridge and tidying up the cables a bit more but im proper chuffed with how its turned out. Just need to wait till this awful summer heat passes then I'll get the side window back on and push the OCs a bit

    Microphone desk stand finally arrived! Amusingly the solid metal base resembles a 2kg gym disc weight.

    It can be placed on the desk to record me:



    Or what I primarily bought it for (SM57 being an instrument mic n' all), facing the amp while I humiliate myself recording guitar:

    Get Skype and we can test it. :P

    I'll be getting an amp for my mic soon.

    Got my XLR and TSR cables in. Pics coming soon.

    Those are the premade cables Corsair sells according to his post. Though I do agree, the build is very pretty.

    Today, instead of pictures, you'll get a video!

    Why?

    Because it is audio-focused, and you can not only see what I got... but also, hear.



    Plugged the mic into my ASUS Xonar DX sound card instead of the RealTek because whenever I record with Fraps on a game, I get coil-whine. Okay then.

    Basically... here's what game footage would sound like with my voice.

    Sounds pretty good, eh?

    As for me, lookie what I got! Yes, that is an a authentic leopard-skin bedsheet that I stripped last week off a real leopard that I came across while journeying across the mountains. Obviously I couldn't pass up that opportunity, chased the motherfucker down (they don't run as fast as shown on TV) and managed to punch it to death.

    I guess you were carrying that box while you were punching that leopard, it seems to have scratched it, probably right before it died.

    I got another Acer AL1951 for cheap so I guess it's time for an update.

    An Imgur album

    Specs:
    • i7 920 @ 3.3GHz
    • 3*4Gb DDR3
    • GeForce 660 Ti
    • OCZ Agility 3 120Gb SSD accompanied by WD Black 1TB HDD and Seagate 4TB.
    • Zalman 850W PSU - I was fool to think the trend of increasing power consumption would continue.
    • Samsung 245B accompanied by two Acer AL1951's. Television is an old 46" Samsung, probably one of the first 1080p TVs.
    • Logitech G15 and Mx518 mouse.
    • Yamaha RX-V765 is powering a 5.0 set by OR with AudioPro SubFocus woofer. Or alternatively, Beyerdynamic DT-770 cans.
    i5 4690k ♦ Z97-A ♦ GTX 760 SLI ♦ 8 GB ♦ 120Gb + 1Tb + 4Tb ♦ Define R4

    Why in God's name did you order a $260-300 1200W! PSU?

    The SSD is more acceptable but still questionable (Agility 3)

    This system nowhere even comes close to 1200W. The platinum label on this PSU is going to be completely worthless on your system due to the low load %.
    Also don't understand putting two low-mid range cards in SLI instead of just 1 proper card. Combining the cost of 2 760's and swapping the excessive power supply could've bought you a 780. Shame..

    I would never recommend it to anyone, but if someone is hell-bent on SLI then 760 SLI gives great bang for the buck. For $500 you get 780/Titan-level performance, microstutter aside.

    And giant resolution and other reasons to need more VRAM aside. :P

    So, a little update on what I have been doing today...

    Project:
    Get this

    Into this

    The idea behind it all might be clearer now (Nerdp0rn, for the strong hearted only)

    I then continued onto mounting the radiator

    And this is how I left it for completion some time tomorrow or sunday


    Will post a full build log and final pics of better quality as I only took these with my cellphone, but I do of course have a dedicated photografer as well.

    Nice! Definitely looking forward to that! Been a while since we've seen a well-built liquid-cooled rig on here!
