Battlestations (post your rigs)

Recommended Posts

Since the old battlestations thread had lots of tips to make posting on the old forum easier and this one posting images could not be more simple.

This is just the simple post your rig thread, no need to post a full build log just a glamour shot of your rig and that is all 🙂

example.

I don't spend enough time and effort on internal cable management to want to show you guys the exaggerated rats nest that is the cabling inside my rigs...

That's the perfect reason to post it up, so people see you don't have to spend 6 hours on your cables for your rig to just work

Recently put this neat build together 🙂

It is a mix of used and new parts that I feel has potential going forward. Swapping the R5 1400 for a new 6 core and eventually the 1070 for something faster should mean that this puter I put together for my brother in law should be great for a long time IMO. After assembling and using this computer I will say I am surprised by the R5 1400. This computer performs well enough for the people that will use it. Also a note about the P300 case, I enjoyed working with it and would consider another. I appreciate that it was all steel and does not use plastic for any of it's panels. However I would like it to be $20 cheaper 🙂

Phanteks P300

AMD R5 1400

ASROCK B450M Pro 4

2x4GB ram oc'd to 3000mhz (Up Here! RGB heat spreaders) 

EVGA 850 BQ

EVGA 1070

Samsung m.2 256GB

Gelid 120mm intake fan

 

 

** Thanks to all that helped me find value parts to put in this rig 😉 **

Hi all!  This is my first post here, figured I'd get something in for the March giveaway.

Here is the newest addition to the rig family.  Yes, needs more RAM.  I have some ECC single rank b-die for this, but for folding this last week I've been using the RAM with purdy lights.  Also yes, I get the irony of putting Trident Z Royals on a Dark mobo.  That battle carries through to the GPUs haha.

CPU is a locked Xeon Silver 4214.  I'll wait and get an unlocked Cascade Lake CPU down the road.  Not sure if I will put it in a case, I kind of like it on a bench like this.  Also I suck at taking pictures, sorry.
