Nice to see your rigs, here is mine


I have it set up now so as the temp goes up.. the Light gets brighter 🙂 lol  (the 2nd pic was before i did that)

Not much to look at, but it does what I need it to do, hoping to upgrade if money permits.

Some cable management and a can of air would be an improvement to clean the dust off the PSU

My Awesome Rig….....

Here is my rig…freaking cables are all a bit to short to properly route. And my case doesn't really make cable management easy.

Bond. Spend the 8 bucks and get an 8pin extension cable. Something like this:

Wrap it up around the mobo, zip tie it to your top fan and then plug it in. That way its not anywhere near your GPU and wont interfere with feeding the GPU's heatsink 'fresh' air.  😉

/not an entry.  Good luck everyone!

Here is my simple small pc. Nothing special but suits me.

Nice SFF!  I like the hardmodded on/off switches.

How to you find CPU temps with solid front?  I ask as that issue was actually why I opted for the uglier 110 and 130s for my builds.

Case: Graphite Series 600T

CPU: AMD FX6300

CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H80

Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX

PSU: Corsair GS700

SSD: Corsair Force Series 3 120GB

Corsair Force Series 3  60GB

HDD: Western Digital 1TB

Graphics: PowerColor AMD Radeon 7970

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3

Keyboard: Tt eSPORTS Knucker
Mouse: Logitech G700s
Gamepad: Razer Nostromo

Sorry, no current internal pics. For lack of space, it sits on a shelf without room to actually turn that monster of a case around.

I am running an i5 2400+7770 and play the occasional CS:GO game. I run MSI Afterburner to limit my FPS to 65 FPS. That way the PC runs quiet and pretty cool. Gaming during CS:GO I get under ~60C. It will sure run hotter in more demanding games.

I use the card reader quite often (booting linux distros from SD cards, turning off/on USB device) so I hardwired the power leads to the switches; one for the card reader and one for the USB port on it. It is pretty useful at times rather than ripping out the card or USB drive.

Appreciate the offer…PM incoming. My rig is very....effective I guess. It suits my needs, without breaking the bank. Though an upgraded GPU and case are next on the list (hopefully get one of them come Christmas).

GL everyone in this week.
