Powering down the cardboard box for the last time and about to build into the new case.

 

So long boxy! It's been great.

 

 

The PC survived the operation! Pics tomorrow.

So with a new SSD and a complete set of new SATA III cables to go in I thought I should re-cable and take some pics.

 

New SATA cables in and out of the way, this case is a PITA to cable.

I even managed to be fairly neat on the back.

That's as neat as I can get it. Be nice to upgrade soon then I can piss that molex cable off from up the middle.

Ready for sides and top to go back on.

With added Purity Seal. FOR THE EMPEROR!

Nice setup Conzo, very neat and tidy :)

Mine's not.

 

Actually, I've put very little work into this as it's kind of temporary, so more messy than I would normally do.

And the desk is always messy as hell, but I just wanted to take some pics to show the flight sim setup I just put together.

The Left MFD (Thrustmaster Cougar MFD):

Posted Image

 

Before you attach it to the base, the joystick on the HOTAS Warthog kit feels like a heave bludgeoning weapon. It's just a big hunk of cast iron with some plastic and wiring added.

 

And the throttle is build the same way

Posted Image

 

The game is DCS A-10C Warthog. I've made the in game MDFs appear where I have velcro'd the Cougar MDFs to the screen.

After all the money I've put into it, I'm not sure I have the patience to learn how to fly the thing.

2.5 hours to configure DCS A-10C Warthog the right way.

Ferk me, that's a mad setup!

 

Yeah, the DCS games are very, very hardcore. Too hardcore for me.

 

It doesn't help that, like most games these days, they come with a .PDF manual when you really need a hard copy in your hand while you're playing.

 

Stick with it mate, that setup deserves you playing it for many a year.

Probably just need the beer chiller, WoT isn't really hardcore enough for a cockpit.

 

You cant HOTAS setup for Mechwarrior Online right?

Thanks man! I love the GTX 670, having lots of fun overclocking it and everything runs great for games. Trying to break 10k in 3dmark11 and Im oh so close. I cant stop messing with settings and tweaking to get the most out of it lol.

Behold the craptabulous craptraption that is my computer.

I've been too lazy to fit the G5 fans and mount the PSU inside the G5's PSU case to clean it up. so it'll look way better when I'm done.

 

I7 2600, GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, 8GB of ram and an 8800GTS

 

the graphics card is temporary until I get a new one.

 

And the other half of my setup
