I've searched teh forumz to find another thread of this, but couldn't find anything (Sorry if it is a repost), so here it is! Post cool pictures of your PC to show us what mean machine you have (and of course what's in it). I guess there's loads of PC enthusiasts here, so i guess there'll be tons of cool (or deliberately uncool) machines :)

Here's my little beastie to start off with:

It's a Thermaltake Xaser III V2000A Aluminium case, ASUS P5B Deluxe Motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (still stock speeds), 2 sticks of OCZ DDR2-800 CL4 XTC memory, XFX GeForce 7950GT XXX Edition (OC'ed to 625/1600) All powered by a Coolermaster iGreen Power 430W PSU.

[EDIT]Full specs[/EDIT]

As you can see the cooler is still stock, this is because i haven't overclocked it yet, and it's taking me very long to decide on which cooler i will use eventually. The PSU will be upgraded somewhere this month to a heavier iGreen one (550W)

When I planned my latest pc the top priority was to make it quiet, I did this by using two computers.
Computer #1 is watercooled and it's the one I use for everyday stuff like surfing, gaming and so on.

AMD 64bit 3000+(idles at roomtemperature)
DFI Lanparty Nforce4
2*512Mb Twinmos
ATI X800XL
2*400Gb Samsung
Antec Phantom 550W
1*Blue Towel
Cooled by a Zalman Reserator and one 120mm fan for the disks


Sorry for the poor picture quality, I used my cellphone.

Computer #2 is used for netdrives and filesharing. It is located in another room to keep the noise away and I connect the two computers through a gbit-net so I can use the netdisks as if they we're inside my main computer. Since most of the disk are located in this computer I decided to run all filesharing programs on it so they won't cause slowdowns on the other computer.

AMD Barton 2500+
DFI Lanparty Nforce2
1.5Gb Memory of some sort
1*200Gb, 2*250Gb and 1*400Gb
Don't remember what GPU, doesn't really matter.
Coolermaster Stacker with two 4in3 units, crossflow thingie, 2*120mm and 2*80mm fans.

Really pleased with how it all turned out eventually, had one major leak once after which I decided not to cool my harddrives with water ;) but it's been smooth computing for some 6 months now. :D

You should find a large case to put it in all neat-like. Someone I knew once had a watercooled system and one of those huge Lian-Li towers, and put nearly everything inside of it. Maybe one of the watercooling bits was left out, I don't remember.

i'll post a pic of mine tonight, well at least the parts...

Peter, that TV looks a bit dangerous up there

The desk is bowing slightly with it's weight and I nearly did my back in putting it up there. I can tell you that old 25" CRTs weigh a ton.

i have an old Goodmans 20" in my room on a turntable, so i can spin it round to play GT4 in my racing chair (from an Escort) that weighs a ton too. has two shitty grab hadles for carrying it, but they don't work too well<_<

isn't it a bit hard to watch all the way up there?

only photo I have online right now...
computers.jpg


there are 5 computers in that shot... the only windows machine is my main desktop which is the Antec SLK-3700AMB sitting in between the 19" and 21" Trinitrons.

Current specs of that machine..
athlon 2800+
1.5gb ram
6800gt video
1090gb of hdd space
Turtle Beach Catalina sound card..
couple optical drives.. and a couple of other random bits

The other machines are a Linux desktop/MythTV box on the left running an Athlon Tbird 1.4ghz with 768mb ram and the PVR-150.. running Slackware, the Dell P3/1ghz beige box in the middle which is the house's router and is running OpenBSD, a dual p3/866mhz machine on the far right with around 700gb or so of space and a gig of ram that I kind of use as my file server and is running Slackware, and then the Dell 2450 2U that's sitting on the floor right now (and will be installed at the datacenter where I work soon) which is a dual P3/1ghz box with 1gb ram and two Seagate SATA II 320gb drives in RAID 1.. running FreeBSD.

I posted the same pic in the new toys thread. Pc is the black thingy on the bottom left.

Case: Silverstone LaScala LC03
MoBo: Asus P5B (non deluxe, was a bit cheap here, but shouldn't have been, I know)
CPU: C2D6300 (unoced, because its hard to find a quite fan that fits in the case)
Mem: 1GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 (single, wanna buy another one in the future)
GPU: MSI 7900GTO (same card as a GTX, but mem runs a bit slower, easyly uc-able to the GTX specs, but I don't really need it ;-) bought it because of the quite fan)
HDD: Seagate 250GB + Samsung 160GB + 80GB external (not in the pic)

All powered by the mighty and excellent Enermax Liberty 400W, so props to Vette Boss for buying it. The smaller model is enough for my PC. Its rather silent during normal use, which is DVB-S TV and Xvids. From 30% CPU usage up it gets a bit louder, speedfan is working its magic with the fans.

I hope to improve that even a bit more in the future with a better CPU fan, I'm thinking about a Scythe Katana 775, as it would fit, and is very adustable via Speedfan.

If you would live with your Girlfriend, I'd say chances are good, it'll stay that way.
And TDU is way better than PGR3 anyway ;-)
