Just a Caselabs SM8

Love it, but my IB-E build late this years will probably be in something a little.. larger, like the ST10 or STH10.

I love fractals.

That bitfenix ghost is probably the only bitfenix case I do like. Plus it is super quiet.. so I heard.

I will take it down it put the 8350/7950 rig up then.. srry

I would like for us to maybe get a sticky on this so we always have a thread for us PC gamers to just keep going and not fill up Pg 1 with random PC thoughts.

You know?

If you want an all encompassing PC thread than a show off thread isn't the way to do it.


Maybe start a thread named the "All Encompassing PC Thread"

I'll put some pictures up of the Cosmos II build. I haven't done the water cooling for the graphics cards yet but that's ok.

5.0 @ 1.37 huh? I'll have to push mine for that. It' stable at 4.6 @ 1.295.

just as long as it doesnt turn into a "ask for build help" megathread.

there is no way we could keep up with different people asking different questions about new builds and upgrades. each of those needs its own threads.

the console boys can just deal with it

I liked the way coyotes Titan thread went. Everyone was able to keep it straight and we were able to explore a lot of subjects. We need an all encompassing PC talk thread and a show off thread. Both should be stickied. That might placate the consolers. In the original post of the PC talk thread we need some ground rules about not requesting build help etc.

I've posted this before, but I'll leave it here as well if this thread becomes the official show-off-your-build thread.

There's been a few changes since I took this pic. The photo shows two crossfired 6950s, but I replaced them with a single 7970 and a full-cover block. I also replaced all my radiator fans with Scythe Gentle Typhoons. Too lazy to take new pictures until my next upgrade -- probably haswell.



Specs:
Case: HAF 932 Advanced Blue
Radiators
XSPC EX240
XSPC RS240
Swiftech MCR-QP 120 (the one with extra g1/4 threads for parallel. Both holes are capped with silver plugs).
Blocks
XSPC Razor 7970 full-cover block
Swiftech XSPC Rasa CPU block
Pump/Res: Dual Bay Res top for Laing D5 Vario
Fittings, etc.
7/16x5/8 Durelene Tubing
XSPC compression fittings
Bitspower Rotary fittings
Fans
5 x Scythe Gentle Typhoons (1850 rpm) (not pictured)

PC
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro
i7-2600k @ 5.0Ghz
MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5/OC Radeon HD 7970 (not pictured)
CORSAIR Vengeance 4 x 4GB (16gb) DDR3 1600
Samsung 830 256GB
2x WD Caviar Black 1TB
COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W
Sunbeam PL-RS-6 Rheosmart 6 Fan Controller
Some old LG Blu-Ray burner from 2009
