Ok, let's make this work, should be fun, should be incentive to clean up those wires, dust out the dust, and provide good clean friendly competition!





Rules

Post pics of your PC, the whole thing please, inside and outside, give us good representation of your rig!

Keep the images down to links and thumbnails, I know fusetalk doesn't do thumbs to well, but it's less annoying than super huge pics that I have to drag my screen around for to find the reply button with.

If your image size doesn't distort the tables on a 17" monitor, than feel free to keep the images large. photobucket auto resizes, 1024x768 always seems to work well.

You are competing for the right to place these badges in your signature






They comply with the 100px high requirement that seems to be no longer enforced, but just in case



We'll take submissions from now until August 26th (Wednesday), after which new submissions will not be accepted, and should be submitted to the following month instead. Voting will then take place from the 26th until the 31st, and the winner will earn the right for the badge, runner up his.


Now post those pictures!

Best of luck.

i plan on setting up my WC system in my 1200 also.
i have some mods that i have to do to it first.
i plan on replacing the top with acrylic and mounting my rad up top.
i have been shopping for a large res,but i just might get a couple dual bay res's if i cant find a single big one that will work for me.

i read you plan on WCing your 4890s (i have a couple myself, and i was wondering if you have picked out the WBs for them yet-if so which ones are you getting?

keep up the good work

Thanks dimwit ! The Koolance VID-4890 I'm leaning to the most at $99.99 each . Koolance VID-487 (Radeon HD 4870 / HD 4890) VGA Full Card Water Block The XSPC Razor 4890 I'm looking at because of the great price of $69.95 each . XSPC Razor 4890 The third one im looking at is the EK-FC 4890 CF copper and nickle versions at $109.95 each . EK-FC4890 CF For Radeon HD 4890 - PLEXI / EK-FC4890 CF For Radeon HD 4890 - Nickel I love to see the UV liquid through the blocks but the GPU blocks you really can't see it anyways cause they mount at the bottom of the GPU .

Thanks Immortal Lobster ! I am a sucker for that to . In fact all my water blocks will be Acrylic tops except for maybe the GPU blocks . I love seeing the UV liquid . Its also a great way to see if the coolant is breaking down and creating build up in the blocks . I keep up on keeping the case clean . It gets covered when its not runing .

Yeah, I'd like to go water cooled, but I don't have the additional funds to invest. , meh, air cooling is still treating me alright.

Gotta get more people to post their rigs!! Mine's still a mess, so that's why I havn't posted yet, been waiting for a particular download to complete before I power down and reroute my wires....still downloading >_>

It's still a work in progress but with time a money it will be a really nice rig. First upgrade will be the PSU It's a 500 watt Silverstone I picked up 2 years ago. Then I'm looking to upgrade the video cards and hope to have 2. Still it's a great preforming computer for not being able to put much money into it for the last year. Benckmark is around 11600 on 3dmark 06. Enjoy the pics

I have a mess to clean up to say the least. It was a massive job.

With any luck I will have it all cleaned up and pics posted tomorrow.

Here is my office setup with main PC. On the right side you see the diagnostic area where a PC can be plugged in and worked on. The large silver thing is called a parabolic antenna array to greatly improve WiFi distance and signal strength. All wires are mounted inside the wire chase on the desk so there hidden 24/7 with 2 large UPS,s underneath. On the left side you see the 2 TB external backup drive. monitors used are 23 inch 20000:1 HDMI Asus 2 ms monitor 1920x1080. Monitor 2 is Asus 18000:1 2 MS 22 inch HDMI 1680x1050 monitor. Monitor 3 is a viewsonic 19 inch HDTV.
