Default Reader's Rig Photo Gallery

Ask and ye shall receive. This thread is for posting photos of your rig, modded or not. Though it's most likely that everyone viewing these forums has high-speed internet access, please resize all your photos to 1000x750 pixels or smaller, out of courtesy to those remaining few who might not have incredible bandwidth.

Addendum: This thread isn't *just* for modded PCs - if you feel you have an interesting or unique build, throw it up here. Also, if you've ghetto-modded a store-bought PC, that's legit, but don't post photos of your $399 Wal-Mart special here unless you've added a window and CCFLs, or something.

Very sharp looking machine Rob. Clean and elegant on the outside, loaded on the inside. What more can you want?

Default re:Reader's Rig Photo Gallery

Ok this is the first offering of my rig,its a little bit dark but i took it in the dark so the lighting would show up!South(Tim)i will post a picture thats without the lighting on later,This has a Mach Speed 939a Motherboard,an AMD 64X2 4400+ Procesor,2 gigs of Platinum OCZ Gamer memory,a Nvidia 7300 PCIE 512 Card,250 gig Maxtor sata primary and a 200 Maxtor ide slave,its has 4-80mm cooling fans,a blue clear Logysis Gamer Case,by the way this case is pretty hard to upkeep to were its perfectly clean all of the time,i would not advise this case unless youir going for the looks,the case itself is not really hard to clean its just a pain in the A__.

Nice looking computer South; you did a good job and I hope I can do the same in the future. Hell, who needs a monitor when you can just look at the tower glowing blue in the night?

If it takes 18 minutes to load Windows, there's a problem ;-)

Looks good man! That cooler makes any computer look awesome.

You'd get better temps rotating that cooler to blow the exhaust towards the back of the case. Looks nice and clean.

Default Zalmon cooler

I tried to rotate it to face the back but it didnt fit over the CPU fully.
It is a rectangle shape fitting over the square CPU.

Right now it's blowing upward the way heat wants to travel. and there is a fan at top blowing up and out.
The temps only ever get up to around 102*F under a load, not overcloked as yet.
I'm not sure yet how to do it in Vista, but I have most of the drivers working after a week of research. AI Nos will not load ( just to try it out )

Since the build, I installed the chiller.
Rather than posting all the images here, Check out the link.

http://www.pbase.com/merlinsgraphics/2007_machine_build

They are not in the build order.

The temp change from the Zalman was a little better, Zalman makes a Fantastic product, I get 10 to 12 C better temps with the CoolIt Freezone chiller Idle temps now around 28C to 31C....under heavy load they get up to 38C to 41C. Next I'll try some OC ing temps
