Here’s what she looks like now-

Now keep in mind this system is from 2008, but I have changed the BIOS over to allow support for Quad Core Opterons and far more memory. This configuration has a ASUS L1N64SLI-WS with a WS/B BIOS, dual 2360 SE’s, 16Gb of DDR2 ECC RAM, a 240Gb SSD, a 2Tb hdd, 1Tb hdd, 2 500Gb hdd’s, ATI Radeon HD 4870 1Gb, Thermaltake VA8000 case and a Thermaltake 850 watt PSU.

Optimized my rack case gaming rig for airflow since I switched from the blower fan on the Vega to the open Raijintek Morpheus II. Got rid of most drives for that. Worked out great. :slight_smile:

Still a work in progress, but it’s coming along nicely. That load driven PS fan is nice and seldom kicks on unless I try to render a Blender scene or something.

I can’t believe that I never showed the ‘Pay-it-Forward’ build that I did for an artist friend of mine earlier this year.

I recently got a MSI GTX 1070 Aero and did a paint mod.

Because stock clocks and thermal convection for airflow are where I want to go. Next is to try and track down all the coil whine and eliminate it if possible.

Christmas gift build for my friend’s son. It’s coming along nicely. :smile:


#1135

Hmm… Some modding took place here…


#1136

Built this a few months ago but never really posted any pictures here, specs are in my bio.


#1137

Just some slight modding. I also did a little bit to the outside of the case as well-


#1138

That’s the cool thing about it… You don’t need much for a great result :slight_smile:


#1139

I have a lot of work yet to do, I’ve been so lazy. Everything runs perfect though, just extremely boring to look at.

Finished a buddy’s build for him, figured I’d post it here.

1700x, 8GB 480, Coolermaster v750, old HAF case. 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD.

Question, why put the CPU cooler with the vacume cone interrupted by the graphics card, not 90 degrees rotated so its blowing air towards the case rear?
