Guts thread will return from autosage even if it kills my poop fans
Yeah that's what I said, it's autosageing
I assembled this for a friend to use for light internet things
That was a neat motherboard, if I had one when they were current I would've been super happy
Right, I'm going to get this from the shed and finally install the Xeon I bought for it a while back
Maybe it was neat, but looking at it really makes me understand just how far our guts appearances have come in just the last few years. Green PCI-E slots? Blue ram slots? On the same board? Disgutsing.
i like the layout but hate that noctua fan.
shit cable management
Windows 7 Ready!
TFW your GPUs are holding you back but you can't afford new ones
old 750D fag, here. Got tired of the bulk and weight of the 750D. Switched to an R5. Didn't know cases could get this silent, actually.
Pretty noice. I'd change that CS650, though.
So does your cable management.
>tear me apart
Can't put a finger on much here. The only think i'd change is that CPU cooler; It looks like you have a lot more headroom, maybe even for a U12S. Other than that, fucking neat. What case is that?
>tcw can't install your favorite poop cooler due to clearance issues
...but there we are, Xeon E3110 is installed. I also put in a 1TB green.
Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX or something like that
There's two 3.5" bays in the basement, I have a 1TB green in there.
is that a film cannister preventing sag? lmao
nice but i'm not a fan of red
i want a custom loop..
same case yo
kinda boring but functional
2 many wires
this is my first build mostly for adobe suite work.. be gentle
(i know i need a new gpu, got this 6950 for free)
you're criticizing builds and your cpu cooler is facing your gpu?
>spending all your money on fancy liquid cooling so you can't even afford a decent GPU upgrade anymore
yeah it is, and i have 1 intake on the front of the case (so bottom right) that cool air blows over the gpu and into the cpu cooler, it all stays pretty cool, and with the mobo i can;t mount the cooler perpendicular to how it is now
>implying it's new
>implying it was all bought at once
670s were still damn good cards when I did this. I've moved from Ivy Bridge to Devil's Canyon on account of a faulty motherboard since building my loop, but kept the GPUs. Pic related, it's the last system I had running air. It's my mortgage that's keeping me from upgrading the GPUs, not my loop.
Not particularly difficult. You PROBABLY have enough clearance to mount a Swiftech MCR140 X-Drive on that top 140mm fan mount, which is a reservoir, pump, and radiator in one unit. If you used a slim 240mm rad on the front as well, you'd have plenty of capacity for your system. The only other wrinkle would be the GPU. I haven't seen a three slot cooler for a while, so I'm assuming it's a bit older. Non reference coolers aren't the water cooling death sentence they used to be, but for something like that you'll probably struggle to find a full cover block. You always have the option of using a universal block with small heatsinks on your VRM and VRAM though.
I wish I could start posting the guts of the builds I've made over the past few months, but I'm fairly certain most of my clients would not appreciate seeing their PC on this godforsaken shithole
That's true. What I meant is that it has a good set of features that my friend will never need
>3-way sli support
>bios debug code display
>dual gigabit nics
>plenty of fan headers
>power and reset buttons on board with power and hdd leds in them
>plenty of connectivity for peripherals
Too bad it was so old when I got it, I had no good use for it anymore
That's why you need to include the ability to use photos of your work as promotional materials in the order contract. Posting them online, even here, could be considered advertising. You DO use contracts, right?
>Posting them online, even here
Not here, no. I do post my works online, but I'd never dream of posting them here. Most of the buyers are parents. They have a certain bias against the anonymous Legion hackers of 4chan.
The median age of my customers are in their early to mid 40s. And they are usually not the end-users.
OP's home server, the guts of which might be replaced by >>52421237
Depends on how reliable this i7 system is, I've had it crash on me once already
Put the hdd cage in, and redid the cabling. Gonna get 2 more 2 tb drives, maybe colored PSU cables.,and maybe nicer fans
Why do people buy expemsive cases and sacrifice on good internals just so it's pretty? That's stupid and it ruins the point of even building a good pc. You could build a rig for as much as some cases and you see people putting shit into those cases.
The mind boggles.
except the PSU (brand new 680w), this is all found/salvaged/cast off parts.
>Apart from a new hard drive, I've had the same guts since Sept 2013
I just don't see the point in upgrading until I can at least double the power of my 4770k.
Another SSD (850 EVO) going in tomorrow, then next week I'll add a proper 2TB HDD and get rid of the external.
Want to go back to custom liquid but no reason to :(. PCS+ cooler on the card and CPU cooler is the same.
Mixture of things. Price for their actual good stuff. Their non AX power supplirs are also known to be kind of meh. RM and CX series have higher failure rates.
Last is the fact that even their AX series are usually rebranded Seasonic ones so people always just say to buy a non-rebrand.
Personally I use god tier V series Cooler Master power supply.
Today I found out that my mobo was missing a screw on one of the standoffs. I've bundled up the sata fan cables and tucked them in closer in one bunch, using up a space of two ports vertically instead of three. 92mm fan is buzzing again because of the clips. I am considering a windowed panel in the future.
I acquired me one of these once. (250GTS 1GBDDR3)
But I was fooled. They said the fan would be silent.
But no. It spins at top speed at all times.
It completely ruined every other attempt in the computer to bring down noise.
>for a friend
housefire incoming in said friend's house
Well I happen to have the exact same PSU as the one you replied to.
And I can say not only is it silent, it doesn't go to housefire levels.
Oh shit. I forgot.
Only the same content from all the other /guts/ threads are allowed in here.
Nice case. What it is.
Also, going to buy a new PC for me. Want to play the next gen shits without worrying too much about dem graphic details.
I already made my mind for the GTX 970. Just dont know about the Processor.
Is a i5 enough? Or should I invest on a i7 with more cores?
Just built this yesterday.
I've seen itx build becoming more popular on /g/.
Feels good man.
>inb4 cable mgmt
it was the best I could do in such a small case.
Sexy, but why is your video card sagging?
pic is mein
It's a front intake, not rear. I've got a Noctua Redux 14mm fan on front. You *can* use a 20cm fans, but some don't fit, and even the ones that do will interfere with long gpus & 240mm AIOs like the h100i that I have.
I've had this since last June, I only clean the dust filters once a month, and I've never had to blow out the inside. There's a little bit of dust inside now because my rear fan mounts aren't filtered, but it's nothing a few puffs of air won't clean. (80mm dust filters are like $2 apiece, I just haven't gotten around to ordering them).
Thanks for the reply.
Just a last question. Does the front cooler blow air to the inside or to the outside?
Would be kind of bizarre if the thing indeed takes the hot air from inside and throw away but still, it had a filter.
The filter would end up being a barrier to keep the hot air inside IMO.
>What decade are you living in again?
I wonder if anyone can pick up on what's special
No trouble, I enjoy helping! There wasn't much info on this case when I bought it. You can set it up either way. Currently I have it pushing air inside, and then exhausting from the side through the CPU radiator. I'm going to try flipping it soon to see what the results are like.
The two side panels both have magnetic dust filters that are easily removed, and the front filter is just a simple clip, so you can easily change them up to suit your intake/exhaust layout. I've currently got the radiator side filter removed for exactly the reason you stated.
Yeah, I did it up in an Air 540 pretty well and it's even quieter in here.
$15-20 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0040JHMH6
>you will never be this autistic with your airflow
I'd love to know if there's any way to improve my cable again as I am not sure what could be done in a practical manner.
>spend all evening googling how to enable hardware watchdog
>in the end all it took is a single modprobe
Well, at least it worked out in the end. Now if that thing crashes, it will automatically reset.
>he fell for the LED meme
I know, saving up to switch to silent fans and shrink the whole machine down into a 250D, only problem is that Mini ITX Z97s and H97s are hard to get hold of and the only ones available are Asrock (been there, never again) MSI and Gigabyte, which all have bad user reviews. Guess I'll just wait for Zen
Flip the PSU around and tuck all cables behind the mobo tray. Tuck fan wires and front panel stuff neatly somewhere. Deal with excess length by folding or even rolling up wires and use the case dimensions to your advantage.
Too lazy to take off panel, it's the same shit anyways
Thats pretty much what I'm doing. Was like a second away from pulling the trigger on 6600k and z170 mitx, then heard about the whole failing on prime95 test.
Ill wait to see what Intel does with their "microcode" update. Otherwise it is x99 matx or Zen mitx.
Pretty desperate for storage
turn cooler 90 degrees anon.
Phanteks really hit the case market running, god damn do they make some nice nice cases now.
Are there any good modular PSUs that move air horizontally instead of vertically for an ITX build? I have a non-modular of the latter form and it is suffocating in my case because it just pulls hot air from the bottom of my CPU.
threadly 90s case coming through
now with i5-2500k/8GB and a new 2TB hard drive.
scotch tape acer
one more after this
last one, temps where 20*C lower after I removed the isloation dust
What CPU cooler would /g/ recomend?
I am on a tight budget but i want to replace my AIO because pump is making too much noice. It will be cooling a 4790k in Cooler Master Silencio 352, so 155mm high max. So far color scheme is pure black and red, but it's not that important.
http://www.arctic.ac/eu_en/freezer-xtreme-rev-2.html Can be had for 40bux on sale, heard pretty good thinks about it but muh non replaceable fan.
It's silent but it's shit. Material quality is awful(i broke 2 mounting screws, because they are super thin and made of shit), it's long, takes 5+ pci slots, heavy and vrm temps are ~85. And look at that backplate. This thing is so damn huge that i had to rotate my cpu cooler and now my cpu is baking. I'm switching to water atm.
4/10, won't recommend. Raijintek morpheus is better.
Go back to the image, see where there's a curvature in the case design? Probably the same as the Fractal Design Define S.
For the most people it is a hobby, hence all the fucking around with rigid tubing, and custom watercooling is more efficient. Not to mention it can look pretty sick when you combine dye, rigid tubes and some nice fittings.
>unironically installing LEDs inside your PC
>unironically using a case with a window
good case offers you:
good cable management
customizable shit - (removable hdd cages for example)
when you already pay 1000+$ for a new rig, whats the point on jewing out on something that would cost 50-100$ more. its one of the only pc pieces that can be future proof.
hf buying shit cases everytime you get a new rig.
Most people I know change cases with each platform upgrade.
That isn't to say don't buy an expensive case, I'm pointing out people want different looks and layouts if they upgrade. But if you can stomach the same shit then yeah that's an acceptable excuse.
>TFW I've change cases without changing the entire system just because I wanted a better case
I went from a Coolermaster 430 Elite (EUGK) to a Fractal Design Define R4 to the Define S.
Went from R4 to DS because I wanted a window, better airflow and to eventually move up onto custom loop cooling.
it's an old hd 6950, upgrading soon, but i love 3 slot cards, will be sad to see it go.
used a spare expansion slot cover, bent it and propped it under the gpu, you can see it on the far right of the gpu, it is perforated.
everbody always posts front guts but never the ugly mess of cables in the back.
my shit looks acceptable in the front but the back is such a cable mess i can't even put the back side of my case on and since i swap shit out so much it's not worth my time to do any real cable management since i'd have to undo it every time i swap shit out.
>phanteks evolv itx
Considering this one fore a future imITX build. How do you like it? Is it good? They say it's a budget case; is it worse build quality than the ATX/mATX versions? Will it survive when that psu blows up?
Leak tested and virtually finished.
Just need to dremel a hole in the bottom of the case for the pump to stick through and it'll be completely done.
The Evolv mITX is pretty damn huge for a mITX case, may as well go mATX for the extra expansion slot if you go that big.
bonus points for well executed presentation
any of you ever try getting one of these cheapo shenzhen special tower heatsinks out of china before? http://www.ebay.com/itm/131567215506
I'm thinking of getting one for shits and giggles to try out... after replacing the fans with some that are actually decent.
>Being this much of a MAD poorfag instead a AMD poorfag.
I assume you meant GPU?
The PSU intakes air from below the bottom of the case and exhausts it out the back.
The GPU intakes air from inside the case, which came from the main intake fan in the front. Exhaust air comes out the back.
So yeah, I don't know why that plate above the PSU is perforated. Maybe to help air out the HDDs?
>having a NAS
come on you don't really have one do you?
you don't need a home network if you never leave your room.
99% of /g/ posters could get by with a pentium 4 and a cheap AOC monitor, a dell keyboard and a microsoft mouse.
Fury X bruh. It's only a 4chin's machine. With a 1440p 144hz IPS monitor. I need to see every image and video clearly when I'm shitposting.
Or this could purely be my gaymer system, ya'know newfriend?
Everyones shit looks the same these days
Or am I getting too old for this shit?
Just got this new case for my secondary (third) computer. Not very good cable management features, in fact there are none, but it was cheap and I absolutely love the look of it. It's a bit ugly since I only had oversized SATA cables and you can't see it in the picture, but the MOLEX adaptor for the second PCIE plug is bulky as fuck and hidden where 5.25" drives go.
Just look at this. It's a case but I think it looks better than my main computer's case.
>tfw r9 290x tri-x

S-should i be scared? Had the setup for over a year, only replaced CPU a month ago. Before this the system was runnning for an additional year with a 770 and i5 4440.
According to PCpartpicker my max voltage draw is only 522w, so that leaves over 200w left.

Huge newbie question, but where are you guys getting those neat, braided PSU cables?
I'm looking to upgrade my case and PSU, but my old PSU's cables looked like shit and had some rigid plastic mesh sheathing that made them awful to manage. Do better PSUs just come with those nicer cables, or do you buy them separate? Same question goes for nice SATA cables. Mine look terrible.
Some PSUs come with sheathed cables out of the box, some have only a few wires that are sheathed from the box. Modular ones may or may not some with the nicer braided ones, but you can get braided cables elsewhere. Haven't bought things in years, and the newer PSU we got had thicker, black sheathing which is much better than my 4 year old Coolermaster PSU, but it isn't modular.
You can get away with modular ones because you can replace them with braided cables, but not so much with non-modular ones. As for sata cables, I haven't seen one that is braided or isn't flat, but look around the web and you may find a site or two that braids for you.
I think it depends on the brand. My Seasonic Platinum is a pretty good PSU but just has black plastic modular cables. They do the job nicely and lock into place just right. I've seen Corsair braided cable on Amazon for $90 which is ridiculous IMO. You can always DIY.
