A new thread for the same purpose has been created by Matt Ingle, which can be found here at SHOW US YOUR SETUP! To avoid any confusion, I would ask for all users to post their pictures in the new thread. This thread will be closed

 

Thank you to all those who posted images of their awesome rigs! :-)

Here's my rig, though I've since shifted the Xonar to the bottom slot and added in a ATI 5850:

And here's one of the fancy shots I took for a recent tutorial in the mag :)

Full specs are Core i7 920 lapped with matching TRUE (also lapped), 6GB Corsair Dominators, GIGABYTE X58 EXTREME, ATI 5870+5850 Crossfire, ASUS Xonar D2X soundcard, XFX 850W PSU, OCZ 120GB Vertex, WD 300GB Velociraptor, Seagate 1.5TB 7200.11, in a Coolermaster ATCS 840. Not the bestest rig you can get, as it's aged quite noticeably, but bloody nice to work with (and more than fast enough for some serious gaming!).

 

Can't wait to upgrade once the next round of Intel chips come out...

man those G7 mouses are pretty rare these days (think its a G7?)

 

eBay. Starting to double click, and the plastic is wearing out.

 

 

@Sceptrecore

 

Gotta love that ghetto monitor stand!

Haha, I have a similar monitor stand SceptreCore - mines the boxes from 2 mobos.

Best stand ever. It's sturdy... the right height... and cost me nothin'.

Loving the neon green IDE Cable :P. And get some cable ties into man! :D HIDE THOSE CABLES :P

It's a UV reactive cable*

If you put a cathode near it, or shine it with some light, it will glow! :D

Here's my desk with my monitors and desktop on it (yes, it is a cheap OfficeWorks Desk):

Posted Image

 

Here's my main rig (demonstrating my wonderfully bad cable tidying skills:

Posted Image

This here contains:

  • Intel Core i7 930 @ 3.8Ghz (OC) cooled by Cogage Arrow with 3 Gentle Typhoons
  • 6GB G.Skill NQ 1600Mhz (running at 1730Mhz due to the OC on the CPU)
  • Sapphire ATI Radeon 5970 @ 900/1200Mhz
  • G.Skill Falcon SSD (128GB)
  • 4 x Samsung 500GB SpinPoint F3's in RAID (200GB of RAID0 for programs and the rest in RAID5 for data)
  • Corsair HX650
  • Coolermaster HAF932

Here's my server (again, showing awesomely awful cable tidying):

Posted Image

 

EDIT: Oops, forgot the specs for the server. It's completely overpowered, but it is used for LAN gaming as well as a HTPC along with it's server duties and I couldn't resist :P

 

  • AMD Phenom II 1090T @ 3.6Ghz (stuff turbo, I'd rather 3.6Ghz on all cores thanks :D) cooled by OCZ Vendetta 2 - cooler was in old desktop
  • 4GB Corsair XMS3 DHX 1333Mhz - was in old desktop
  • Gigabyte GTX 275 - was in old desktop
  • Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500GB - laptop disks have been used, because have to sleep with this PC and my spare 3.5" disks were too noisy (this one used to be in my laptop)
  • Seagate Momentus 5400.6 500GB - this was an RMA of a drive I used to have in an external enclosure. Since I couldn't wait, I just got a new one and put it's replacement here
  • Hitachi Travelstar 5K320 320GB - crap, but again, another spare, so it's all good :)
  • Corsair VX550
  • Antec 300

Haha, thanks. It is quite huge. The zip ties are my improvised way of getting the seemingly incompatible fans to mount on. The holes where the fans should mount with the stock 120mm fan holders were blocked with plastic poles, so I couldn't insert the mounts. It's a bit hard to explain, but another guy I know got a Thermalright cooler and had the same trouble mounting, since he had Gentle Typhoons as well :(
