I just added LEDs to my rig. Computer rig showoff thread, go!
I wish the flow was a little better but it's fairly functional for what it is.
I meant airflow/case temps actually. They aren't very good compared to a lot of other cases but this one was obviously designed function>form and the temps aren't bad when you consider that.
Well I was matching the interior to the colors on the other side of the case, but switching the importance. Tertiary colors become the main colors, primary became tertiary, etc. Not sure how successful I was
Ah I stand corrected, flow could have meant a few things. But I know what you mean, I have my CPU rad as my primary exhaust. Not exactly what I wanted, but full load I barely hit 60c on the CPU so I just left it.
Temps are good (about 82-ish under load), I have a fan in the front blowing air out around the GPU. I'm water cooling it later this month though, so this fan setup is not my final.
yeah but according to objective testing the case doesn't fair too well compared to most modern cases.
Just a sticker.
They're an AIO or all in one cooler. They have a small loop of liquid that carries the heat out to the radiator which has fans blowing over it to get rid of the heat. The tubes hold the liquid and the part over the CPU is the pump that circulates the liquid.
It's definitely not because I work from it and have to look at it several hours a day every day and want something that performs AND looks nice on my desk.
You have it all figured out - it's because I have no life.
LEDs are facing away from me at my desk and I can't see them on my wall when the lights are on. I only turn off the lights to sleep. Also I can just switch them off or dim them with a few clicks.
But also, it's sexy as fuck so I don't even care
Sharp build anon, love the color scheme you chose. What all in total you have put into that setup? Speakers and monitor, keyboard, and of course the rig??? also specs on speakers and rig would be great.
Plebs who think aio is water-cooling
built mine before RGB too
then i had to replace the mobo
nothing but RGB boards now
glad i can turn that shit off
Aw shit, the lighting made it look super dusty. I suppose it's hard to have a 100% dust free setup though. I gotta dust it once a week since I live in the Midwest. Dust is an issue.
Oh I almost forgot specs (OP here)
nothing as crazy as some other people
>tfw your only LED part is a Cooler Master CPU fan.
That pic was also in my old flat, when the tower was on the floor, and the place was super dusty, like you dust and a day later and there's a thick layer again.
Recently moved into an actual house, and now it's up on a desk instead of being abused on the ground.
Thx. I originally built it about 4 years ago but upgrade random things. In the last year I got the case, speakers and built a desk. Most of the other components are old.
Speakers are kanto Yumi
My current specs, not the most powerful thing out there. But it handles all my gaming needs just fine.
I plan on upgrading later in the future and turning that board/cpu into an htpc. Thinking ahead kiddos. Plus is has better performance and less shit on it to break/empty slot eye sores.
Sharp build for sure! Its all about functionality when it comes to a build IMO, seems like you have a rocking rig when it comes down to specs!
How is the quality on them speakers?? I'm considering picking a pair up if they are worth a damn for 200 bones, I'm getting a desk tomorrow afternoon, I'm a poor ass college kid so i'm going to have to buy my rig piece by piece. I have some great ideas in mind for what all I'll end up putting in the damn thing.. Newegg will be my friend.. haha
Love the green and purple. Looks great.
Speakers are decent and sound just as good as my 5 year old studio monitors. I got them on a group buy for less than $200 though.
Wait for black friday to buy your components. You will save a ton of money with sales. Nows a bad time to build though as you probably noticed you can't buy a GPU anywhere.
Best one here by far, good work anon. Love what you did with the RGB.
This picture just screams comfy.! And yeah ive noticed that.. shits just crazy at the moment in the PC market, I work for T-mobile so im not paid the best hourly but im raking in the commission sales.. Gonna save up and take your advice, ill get myself a nice rig for Christmas.. Until then im stuck with my middle of the road HP laptop for school and such.
Kudos on the beautiful set up.. just the right amount of lights that its not overwhelming too.
It's basically this >>741613217
Two side drawer units from target/Ikea/Walmart, and I used oak countertop as the top stained dark because I'm an edgelord.
You might want to just go with a 1050 ti or a used 970-980 and wait until this crypto meme ends. It's the worst I have ever seen and it doesn't look like it will end any time soon. Hopefully by early next year it will have blown over.
help I have a Hyper 212 EVO and the fans are on but shit isn't cooling
It looks like you're at max load nigger, what are you running?
I mean yeah its a decent card but its overpriced a bit. It's all about how much its worth to you. The only cards not effected by minerfags are the 1050 and 1050 ti. And the 1080ti if you have that coin.
No. The hyper 212 should cool that fine unless he is running prime95 or something. He fucked up installing it.
Curious why you responded to him with that picture? If you know anything about CFW on wireless routers you'd know those things run hot and thats a pretty sweet setup. You'll get full wireless 100 feet more than normal.
any tips for new builders?
I just got my pets delivered
I5 7600K 3.8GHZ
ASUS Prime B250-A
BITFENIX 550 PSU
Mushkin 500GB SSD
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX
Cooler Masyer HYPER EVO 12
plus a Carbide Series 400C case
Looks fine but I would go with a nice PSU and not an offbrand. EVGA and Seasonic have the current top rated units.
lol you can't get any right now
I got a new motherboard recently and I needed to transfer the cooler so I removed it and wiped off the thermal paste. I removed the thermal paste with a damp paper towel. did i do good?
also my RAM is 1x16gb random corsair stick and the other is 2x8gb corsair vengeance 2133hz. shit works and idk why but i actually do have 32 gb
pic is old setup
I need a new GPU but the fucking miners have bought everything and jacked up the prices. Can't even buy a used one because there's a good chance you're buying a burned-out piece of shit.
You're an idiot you can buy tons of gfx cards if yoiu know where to look. You can get 1060s on amazon for a few bucks below MSRP right now. Also I just sold 2 graphics cards and they were not burnt out or shit
The side panel normally covers up the glare from the lights, but the window is too small for a good pic
Gotten a new monitor and mousepad since pic but it's mostly unchanged.
I'm weird about keeping my workspace clean. Distracts me if its not.
I do miss my dual setup but it takes too much desk space.
>I'm weird about keeping my workspace clean. Distracts me if its not.
I'm being serious, is there a way I can make myself care? I have a dusty case and beer bottle caps enough to make me fallout rich on top my desk.
I honestly didn't really notice until I saw yours. Even when I do see it is a limited time thing and I quit caring/seeing
>Holy shit my captcha had thomas the train
basically any cost effective ones have been gobbled up by cryptocurrency miners. The only ones available are like 1070 up.
My RX 480 4GB would sell for 100 dollars more right now than when I bought it at launch which is bonkers. Just go on PC part picker and you'll see basically every card is $100+ more than what they should be due to demand shocks.
some time ago I was into the looking cool thing, LED's and shit, but after I got the p400s I realized that I don't really care about lights, glass or interior looks all that much. All I care about when it comes to pc's is that it's fast, cool and quiet, which is ironic because I'm using two hard drives, four stock fans and a graphics card with a sub par cooler.
Still in progress, just need RAM, GPU is on the way right now.
EVGA GTX 1060 OC
MSI H110M Gaming mobo
please tell me that you had the cpu and mobo before ryzen 5 came out, if you did not, the made a mistake, on top of using an overclockable cpu on a chipset that you cannot overclock on AND having a stock cooler.
correct, although I upgraded it to this recently
Just moved, hence the need for strong wireless at the moment. My old place had wired ethernet in every room, I just used the wireless to stream shit over my network.
Working on a powerline ethernet kit soon.
Jesus fuck man, you spent $100 on those things. wtf is wrong with you https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Dominator-Airflow-Platinum-Cooling/dp/B00Q8UKRYU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1502341411&sr=8-2&keywords=corsair+memory+cooler
