Default Post up your Rig!!

Have a cool computer you would like to share?

Maybe a modded xbox/ps3 with crazy lights and shiny parts?

Well post them up so we can drool over them!!
( Feel free to post up specs as well if you would like )

Lets keep this thread on a friendly level, meaning keep the negative comments to yourself.

Im sure people would love some help or advice on their builds so lets keep this a positive thread

My latest build.

Built it to be small and quiet, the total opposites of my last machine. I've gotten away from needing an insane pc to play video games, and this one still plays whatever I feel like. I mostly watch movies and stuff now, and browse the internet anyway. I sold all my old displays and just use my TV now.

Yep. It gets kind of warm though... so I swapped the stock cooler fan with one of my super scythes... and now it's not quiet anymore lol.

Probably will sneak in one of the closed loop coolers, I've seen a few people do it with this case.

I'm running a closed loop cooler with mine, it's pretty silent for the most part and super small compared to the other heat sinks.

I've been wanting to make a mAtx for a media PC.

I like how your GPU is taking up the entire length of your mobo, haha that is awesomely compact though.

Yikes! You need a new case that has cable management options. That's a rats nest.

Just got installed in the new house, merging guest room with office, so I am trying out the closet. I love the clean look (monitors off it looks completely normal).

Supply/Return ductwork for cooling and wire management incoming. Installing 20A breaker and 2 heavy duty plus on either side of the wall.

Middle monitor comes out and rotates to become XBOX screen, left monitor comes out and rotates to become laptop extended monitor.

Also in the process of making brackets for my Z5300 surround sound (sub seen bottom right under xbox) to mount on the doors (rear surrounds), upper side walls (fronts) and on top of center monitor (center).

Webcam, mic not installed either.

Whats behind door number one?


My gaming setup! (see sig)


Computer itself (wont embarass myself with wire management pic, looks similar to above same case):


Media htpc:


Waiting to mount TV on wall:


Last note, once I have confirmed I want this in the closet, I will be mounting the monitors horizontally from the wall. I have the mounts in a box on the top shelf.

Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 MOBO
Evga GTX 660 SC GPU
