Those specs look fine to me, I bet it is great fun to drive :) Have you had a go at Assetto Corsa yet? I was thinking of picking it up on Steam sale.

 

Im kinda want to pulling everything out of my case and using some flat black to paint the inside.... kinda a waste of time since when closed its not even seen but I hate the grey should be all black, but I really like the outside looks of it.

You missed it by about a week. Was on sale for $20 during the summer sale.

Since I last uploaded any pics, I've mounted two Corsair SP120's to the crazy big heatsink, and now have a GTX 460 SLI setup. And for those of you who I race with, here's what my setup looks like with my wheel in place

Yeah it was on the second last daily deal. I was waiting specifically for it - didn't buy anything else.

 

Haven't installed it yet. Have to build my cockpit type thing before I do any racing. Really looking forward to it though.

hehe nice one nobody. I bolted my G27 to my desk at work to do the Grid Autosport review for ausgamers and damn it felt totally rubbish, not so much the G27, but the position and a single screen. I'm such a snob now haha :)

 

Gamble, yeah I got it and have been playing since the tech preview. probably understandable given my cockpit, that pretty much all I play are sim racing games. I 'play' pretty much every racing title that comes out but i only play proper sim titles like: iRacing, Assetto Corsa, rfactor 2(lol sucks), game stock car 2013, formula truck 2013, race room experience, and a few others. I mostly stick to iRacing and a bit of Assetto Corsa - it need more polish before I devote TOO much time to it.

 

If ur interested in racing games wander over to http://www.atomicsimracing.net/forums/ :)

Yeah, the "limited" view range doesn't work all that well when you're side by side Assetto Corsa, making it hard to see where anyone is next to you :-/

Yeah it may or may not be a bit annoying to get setup, just let me know when you're doing it if you have any trouble and i'll post screenshots of what works for me.

 

I think it's hard to get a sweet spot for sensitivity, but you can set shortcut keys to reset to center if it goes out of whack.

 

Only set it up, never really had a good go with it.

I spent the afternoon turning this,

I'm going to get some better pictures of the case interior. With the exception of the card performance, the thing that impressed me the most was the case itself. It is the most well thought out case I've ever built in. Grommets everywhere. Lots of room everywhere that you need it. Great cabling options. Modular drive bays, all of which are toolless. Great soundproofing. It's quiet as when you get the GPU cranking. Built in fan speed controls. For the $120 it is well worth the money. Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 for anyone who's interested. It's the best case I've owned by far. I'd have been happy with it if I'd payed twice what I did for it.

disolusiond, the cable management looks so much better in that case. How are the temps while gaming with the new card?

Thanks. I didn't build that first rig. It was a freebie. The cleaners at the pc repair place I put my old, completely broken rig in for refurbishment, thew it in the bin ( don't ask, I don't know ) so they had to build me a new one. As you can see, it was a slap dash job at best. The cabling in the Nanoxia was a breeze, so getting it neat in no time was easy. It would actually be a lot cleaner than than, but I'll be replacing the MB, CPU and the CUP fan soon and didn't see the point in going overboard till then.

 

The temps I haven't had a good look at yet, but on the Rome II benchmark, with everything maxed out, the gpu got to 62, the cpu to 49, with the fans running at 25%. Not bad.

 

Anyway, here are some pics of the cases cabling options.

 

Here you can see the nice big gap in the top left to run the rear case fan/mb power cable. I appreciated that so much. Many times I just can't get more than a fan cable in the gap left there, so having a half inch or more was a nice surprise.

These next few show the multiple, and in many cases, MASSIVE rubber grommeted holes to run your cables any way you choose.

I took some shots of the drive bay options, but pictures aren't great, just taken with an iPhone. They are pretty incredible, though. Check out the video on pccg if you want to see.

 

This is my cat, Winston. He didn't help at all. He's a lazy fucker.

Been playing Wolfenstein and Elder Scroles Online. ESO is pretty graphics heavy. It shows off the card nicely. The temp is sitting around 57 degrees. Hasn't gone over 60.

Nice! Will look better with a nice CPU cooler ;-)

 

And seeing as the forums have been updated, I think I'm gonna make a V2 of this thread. had planned ages ago of making one that included and index in it, so it'd be easy to look back at specific members pics, and see how their PC has changed over time. Anyone still think this is an alright idea, as I don't really want to do it of nobody (no pun intended) thinks it's worthwhile

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! :-)

I would but.....it is kind of...you know...not assembled...I could show you a picture of a GPU or CPU in a box or a PSU on a desk OR an empty case, but nothing more.
