Post your pc's
Why post pc if you can post your battlestation
Don't have any pics of mine, but here's one I did for a customer. Believe the kid picked out a 1060 and an i7-6600. Not a bad first system for an 11 yr old kid I suppose. He chose the most God awful case though, plastic "gamer" accents everywhere and abysmal cable management. Did my best to make it somewhat acceptable.
Take the PC out into the driveway or sidewalk.
Remove both side-covers. Set on side or against a cinder block.
Use leaf blower on medium low speed. Blows all dust out in 10 seconds.
Tighten motherboard screws gently, check wires are snug. Your PC is clean for another Year!
Did the system come pre built with those specs or did you just build in that case/upgrade? It's a sleek looking case. Also why the B&A print on the case? Did it have internal speakers or something?
I did, pic was obviously taken before all the cable gore.
Came pre built, only paid 717.00 (tower only) for it through company epp otherwise I would have built my own as I did before. as for the Bang and Olufsun has to do with the audio not the speakers
Who is this or that druaga character?
I have an SSD. It is hidden behind the 'plating'. The HDD is not connected because I couldnt fit the cable to the SSD and the HDD so I just connected the SSD only.
Hard drive still has stuff of the era of 2013 and less.
The settings are as followed:
Low jet: good for blowing the seeds off of dandelions. Watch them fly away!
Med jet: useful for blowing away leaves and twigs. It's like fall all over again!
High jet: ideal for wet leaves, puddles, stones and sticks. Look at that tropical storm in your hands!
Wolf: perfect for huffing and puffing until it blows the entire suburbs off the map and relocates it to the far side of Pluto. Where did everybody go?
my current setup. I live under my ex-wives house.
Just use the lowest setting and hold the end about 2-feet away. blow all around insides and in thru the fan openings for the power supply. If you can also pop off the front plastic cover and blow the caked-in dust out the intake holes. Your PC will run 30deg cooler trust me.

okay cool thanks anon jealous of your setup and the many screen and ram piggy
no you are me, and i am you
let me inside you anon
don't resist the convergence
yeah figured that out thanks to the anon
still appreciate the info tho
Oh God that got my sides
Looks like mine only with a GTX 960 card, but the drive slots are on the backside directly behind where yours are.
Currently running 4 drives: two 1TB HDDs, one SSD 120GB and one 500GB laptop Hard Drive. All have OS on them except for one empty 1TB drive. Main OS is Windows 8.1 on my 500GB
I really fucking hate SSDs in the state they are currently in. Needs a few more years to perfect them. That's why my main OS is not my SSD.
Also no picture, so fuck off.
Are you genuinely not aware that RAM can have a heatsink? Like that metal shit that most RAM comes with is considered a heatsink my man. It usually provides no benefit at all but that's it's "function".
don't believe it's yours, I'm pretty sure this pic is of some guy a few years ago who lived under his moms house, he had told her he moved out (or she kicked him out?) and he snuck in when she was away in order to shower and stuff.
great. you have identified the problem. now you just have to fix it.
No pics of inside rig.
Not much to show though.
15 gig of DDR4
Getting a 1070 here soon.
gaming-ish pc, xbox one s, ps4, oppo 203 uhd player, 65" oled, atmos 5.1.4 setup
Linux Master Race is where it's at
Took me a few seconds to process that, kek'd when I did
>tfw Windows 95 build has better processing power than my brain
I can stand.. just not up for myself..
Got this Mid-tower ATX in mid-2015. After 1 year I gutted my ibuypower pre-build and made it my own way. Somehow managed to cram all this (H80iv2 + x3 2.5" drives and x4 3.5" HDDs) and add more fans to it.) this thing is stuffed. Couldn't fit another GTX980 in it. suprisingly the airflow works really well got my mobo controlling all my fans this time. pre-build didn't even bother to hook the fans to the mobo just directly to the psu.
This is my super low budget pc, it's all' new besides the graphic card that i got almost for free
Do not do this. In fact, do not use any blower or vacuum significantly more powerful than a desk fan. When a motor (such as the one found in your common or garden heatsink top fan) is forcibly spun it acts as a generator and, when forced to excessive speed, can put extremely jagged current through your motherboard. This is, obviously, less of an issue for fans powered directly from the PSU.
Additionally, if using compressed air, do so sparingly. It cools as it expands and can cause condensation in the worst places.
Shortcuts cause problems. If you want to use a blower, immobilise or better yet, unplug the fans and ensure your case is grounded (if plugged in and properly set up it's grounded by default).
But really, a decent non-static generating brush is cheap as is a hand pumped air blower. Either/both with a bit of patience will see you a long way toward a clean rig.
And the rest of the setup
Don't get me wrong, the speed of a SSD is noticeably faster than an HDD and the OS should be on the SSD. Personally, I hate them though. All the power to you though, /b/rother!
