    you'll notice I have a stock cooler, and that's because the 8-pin cpu power from my PSU doesn't reach and I actually had to cut a notch in the cooler so that they just barely fit. yeah I could cross over the GPU's but then I was too lazy to want to install a new cooler.

    Specs:
    Core i7 860 @ 3.2ghz
    8Gb PC312800 memory
    8Tb HDD space + 240Gb SSD
    2x 6870's
    P7P55D PRO

    I have another build currently on the go, a quad interlagos server in a Xigmatek Elysium. I'm also going to upgrade to a 3930K when Canada decides to stock them again :(

    Just realized my heatsink fan was pointing at my exhaust fan, so I switched it. Since my RAM's heatsinks are so fucking big, I had to switch slots for them. Looks so cramped now.


    ugh

    If you're buying (those Sennheisers in the other thread jesus bro) all these things by yourself, then, you are a cool dude and I envy you.

    If your parents are getting all you this though fuck you my parents were tight as fuck with money :(

    I'm so tempted to just buy some HD's and stop waiting on prices since I'm running out. My capture drive (2x640 in RAID0)

    Only has like 350gb left on it. Which may seem like a lot, but in a normal night of recording games, I use maybe 200-250gb. So I have to keep going back and editing up my footage instead of taking advantage of my recording time.

    Milky's system probabbly tops mine in terms of neatness and what not..


    But honestly, I got lazy, when I built this system, I wanted to go all out, but then not having another system to work on made me furious, so I ended up just slapping everything together.

    I have a bunch of MDPC-X sleeving that I haven't been able to put use... maybe I'll end up sleeving my cables when I have the time.

    Here's a few older pics ( the very first morning I had the system all setup. The look has been renovated over 3 times since that )




    Here's that neat picture:



    But anyways heres a very ugly video i shot for fun.:

    Yeah, my first WC build ever ( well officially, I've helped with several other AIO based WC builds of my buddies but yeah ) There's two GTX480 rads, one mounted on the back ( easy ) and one on the top, I'm using one of those 4x120 fan grills on the very top. ( I still need to cut some edges down, it's been 2 years since I first got it done, still lazy to do it )

    Luckily, I finally found all my spare parts, and my dremel after the move, so maybe I'll get to it soon, It's been awhile since I re-drained and re-looped my system.

    Man, if only you weren't in the UK, I'd get you to sleeve my cables, I have over 50m of black and white MDPC-X and several meters of aqua blue sleeve.

    Also, do you happen to be in the "family"? I swear I saw your work on XS & the family before :)

    why are you basing your opinion of an entire brand on the outcome of a single example of a single product they make, in a market where DOA or otherwise faulty products are well known to exist

    I installed a fan controller today, I'd like to think my efforts at managing it's cables succeeded though.




    I might need to start considering a new case though because man I love the 690, but it's pretty hard on my cables.


    ALso apologies for my phone camera because it normally looks like this

    lol who cares about cable tidyness on the back, it just makes it harder to add more cables later on (and make those look neat too).

    just put the door on and forget about it
