Here is my rig.

My stuff on the right, including the case. (I am resuing my GTX 280, I can still run any game at max settings)


I opted for the SATA III SSD 128GB / SATA II HDD 1TB combo, (FREAKING fast loading times!)
i7 930 @ stock clock for now.
A70 heatsink
Asus prem MOBO
Gskill DDR3
Obsidian 800D case
SSD 128gb
HDD 1tb
GTX 280
SATA II optical drive
Windows home 64bit
750w PSU

This think is a CHAMP.







HOT SWAP BAY WOW, love this thing!

Cheap system that I built after a friend decided to build one, then wussied out. (he gave me the urge to build another one)

I'm proud of that wiring job, and the overclock on it. AMD Phenom II X2 555 @ 3.9Ghz.

Just set the multiplier to extra high, then lowered it slowly till it was stable. I originally got that processor in hopes that it would unlock all 4 cores, but it didn't. My luck sucks.

Not since 2001 and Im still running my last build , 2 years ago I made 2 upgrades to it a vid card and a new HD , the HD crashed hard this week . so back on the old 2001 era HD lol


Never built the one I wanted to , I wanted to build a custom case that looked like a spider with all the wiring coming out the back like the web . mocked it with cardboard and got every thing to fit but never built the case.

Cooler Master ATCS 840
Core i7 920 at 3.8 Ghz - cannot get stable above that thanks to C0 stepping - requires too much VCORE. Plans to upgrade to an i7 930 soon.

I remember those cases! Those were the rage back in 05-06. And so was water cooling.

Still haven't decided on the graphics card, sound card, PSU, RAID card, or hard drive setup yet, but good golly are SAS 6.0Gbps drives expensive! I've got to have $$$ enough for the LTO-4, RED Rocket card, and a good display! Not to mention CS5 and BR burner.

I've only bought one desktop computer in my life, it was my first one in 1995. I upgrade my computer until it's no longer feasable and then I build a complete new system. I'm on my fourth homebuilt computer now.

I'm the same way. My desktop currently sits in a 4u server case.

I use to really be into the custom stuff when I was younger. I remember making my own direct water to die cooling block for an old pentium 3. Back then you used heater cores from cars as their really wasn't any custom radiators for computers then. The market was very young. Also remember using car neon lights because they were 12 volt and using window molding when you cut windows in the cases.

IRC that orange cover zalman heatsinks/fans have is actually supposed to come off once installed leaving the bare fins exposed for better airflow. I could be wrong though.

it's not an orange cover... it's copper. My silent knight cooler looks very close to the same.

I'm running at 49C at idle (4GHz overclock).

Prime95 gets it up to around 90C after it's been running a while. Ambient room temps are a bit high, though. At stock i7 speeds (2.8GHZ), it's running around 30C at idle.

Thing is, I don't really trust software reported temps as far as I can throw 'em...but there ya go.

I'm using my dad's build from 2003. I have since replaced the video card and memory, as the memory was fried in a power surge and the video card allows me to hook up my 24'' high definition flat screen TV to the computer. I use the TV as both a computer monitor and as a TV. Mostly as a computer monitor.
