    currently running as a graphic design, rendering rig and gaming rig, due for an upgrade soon however:

    X99 sabertooth motherboard
    I7 5930K 6core at 3.4ghz currently
    16GB DDR4 @ 2400mhz
    Gigabyte GTX1080 Waterforce edition
    15TB mech drive space
    250GB M.2 SSD for OS and required software, nothing else goes on this drive
    Triple BenQ 144hz gaming monitors, because, why not
    Coolermaster 240M nepton AIO

    currently building a custom desk with a glass window to put all my PC parts inside and custom watercooling loops with it since i am trying to save space in this room currently since it isnt super big, the case im using is all too big for me now and will be re-purposed into a 15TB RAID6 array

      I just finished this 2 weeks ago. Dedicated simracing pc!

      Case: Coolermaster Masterbox Lite 3
      PSU: Coolermaster 400W powersupply
      M/B: Asrock H81M-DGS R2.0
      CPU: Core i5 4670k (might switch it with the 4670 in my daily and overclock that)
      RAM: 2x8GB Corsair DDR3
      GPU: EVGA GTX950 2GB Superclocked
      SSD: 120GB, forgot the brand

      Got it second hand for 380 euro's, I still had the GTX950 on the shelf, cleaned up the cables, and installed Windows 7 on it. Runs great.

      The motherboard doesn't have a connector for the USB3.0 ports on the front, so I ordered a PCI-e x1 expansion card for that. And it the case and cpu fan are loud and rattling, so might change those out.

      And this is what it's powering

      Playseat Evolution Alcantara
      Thrustmaster T300RS wheel
      Thrustmaster T3PA-Pro pedals with loadcell brake mod
      Thrustmaster TH8RS shifter
      Playseat shiftermount
      24" 1080p Iyama screen (traded it at work for my old smartphone )
      Philips 2.1 speakerset, but I usually use headphones with mic
      Foldable camping table.

        Hi !

        So I just did some stuff to the PC that makes it worth looking at (finally), not the most powerful, but it's my old budget gaming PC that has been modified with some better stuff as years goes by.

        Here's the last iteration :
        proco : i5-3570k (4x3.4 GHz from factory, right now overclocked at 4x4,3 GHz, but still upping it to find the temperature sweetspot)
        Ram : 2x8Gb (Corsair DDR3)
        Graphic card(s?) : Right now, 2x Radeon r9 280, you can see a crossfire cable on the picture, but it needs 2 :/ It's on it's way though, last thing needed right now
        Hard drives : Don't wanna talk about it, I need a SSD ... (right now, only a 1TB Hard drive)
        And of course, the main recent change, the watercooling : Enermax Liqfusion 240, still running the standard kit without a reservoir, but will change a little bit when I decide to invest into a real graphic card (something not as old as mines ^^)

        Of course, the inside :

        Recently rebuild it (to get the watercooling mounted) so I also arranged the cables, not the prettiest perfect cabling, but nothing is in the way ^^

        Hope you like it !

          Looks good! Nice cable management aswell, given the case you have to work with. I'd change to a case with black interior and see if you can get a solid Crossfire bridge, those flexible ones just don't do it for me.


          • #20
            Yeah, the case is a haf 922, so there is quite some space, that's good (but I ordered a new one 2 days ago ^^ fractal design)
            The crossfire bridge doesn't bother me that much, in fact it's quite recent, I needed a little graphic boost, and the same card as my old one was like 60 bucks, and I had a crossfire cable laying around, so ... yeah ...

            But I'm currently upgrading everything, including the graphic card (waiting a bit to see if rumors about a new nvidia series are true) so it will change quite a bit ^^

              I received my new case (quite some time ago, Fractal design define r6), went ahead and bought pretty much everything I need to fully build a custom watercooled gpu system (going to modify these ones), expandable later obviously.

              I'm going to try to fully make a hybrid mod for the graphics cards qith a new fan/waterblock system.
              I hope it will work ^^
