14 even though I'm 17.
I've been pulled over while driving because the police officer thought I was a little kid.
SpamBrie reacted to Kejsare102 in What I like to call "The Excalibur"
First of all, this isn't really a log. I just want to share my rig with this community and since the description to Build Logs was "Show off your rig" I assume this has to be the best category to post it in.
Anyways, this is my newest and current rig. I just finished it all a couple of weeks ago but unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures during the assembly of everything. What a bummer, eh?
I chose the name "The Excalibur" not only because it's a fucking awesome name but also because I tried to keep my rig as military themed as possible.
The military fights wars>The Excalibur is a legendary weapon used in war>Therefore the name fits. You know what I mean, right?.
Also, I will exchange the stock Corsair fans for Noctua fans whenever I get money to spare. They're expensive as hell where I live.
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
GPU: GTX 780 DC2
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 620W 80+ Bronze
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB(2x4) (Only 4GB currently since one of my sticks broke )
Case: Corsair Vengeance C70 Military Green
Storage: Two random WD HDDs 640GB each
Cooling: Corsair H100i
Mouse: Random crappy Logitech mouse. Will get upgraded soon.
Keyboard: Really old Zboard membrane keyboard. I completely love this keyboard and refuse to upgrade until it breaks completely.
Keypad: Razer Nostromo. Not used that often, too small for my hand.
Headset: Random Deltaco headset. Will also get upgraded soon.
Upgrading the harddrives to something like a 2TB WD Black and a 240GB SSD.
Buying a new modular PSU with sleeved cables.
Buying new RAM.
Exchanging the fans for NF-F12's.
Upgrading my mouse to a Steelseries Sensei.
Upgrading my headset to some good headset. I haven't decided which one yet.
I am terribly sorry for the horrible picture quality. I'm a poor student, I can't afford those fancy system camers. My iPhone camera will have to do for the moment.
The case. You probably already know how it looks like.
The guts. Looks military enough. Will hopefully look even better with Noctua fans. It's either going to look really cool or ugly as shit. That's the curse of Noctua's fans.
Random mini-closeup because why not?
The entire battlestation. Where I waste my precious hours of daylight.
From another angle.
That's basically all I got at the moment. If you've read it all the way to the end, you're a cool dude. I'd really appreciate it if you could leave a comment telling me what you think and if I there's something you think I should add to it.

People should just get a PC already.

SpamBrie reacted to DGPC in Bertha 2.0 (Modded Prodigy with 520MM of radiator)
Come on an adventure This is my first go at watercooling and I don't think I'm ever going back to using air! Here we have Bertha 2.0 (after getting bored with Bertha 1.0 of course). Composed of a modded prodigy with a shroud (obviously not an idea I saw watching SingularityComputers :P ), 520mm of radiator and some cable sleeving. More below.
Cable Management in a Prodigy WITH tubes everywhere = worst thing ever. Must say, it wasn't a half bad job. I'm still going to have nightmares about it. Good thing I'm not posting a pic of behind the GPU!
A bit more detail on the parts:
Bitfenix prodigy (Modded front panel) + shroud (installed by yours truly) + Modded Power button + Hole in the bottom (to fit a radiator) All this done with a trusty dremel.
2 Corsair SP120 fans for intake and 2 NB fans up top for exhaust (Notice how the rings are nice and green)
Some Bitfenix presleeved extenders (Hate all you want, that took effort to manage in the back since these things gotta attach to the original cables)
Mobo: ASUS Z87I-Deluxe (took a lot of patience to get one of these)
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance (Couldn't find the vengeance pro GOLD)
SSD: 128GB Samsung 840 PRO (wish I could get one of those evos)
HDD: 750GB WD Caviar black
GPU: EVGA GTX 780 (bow chicka wow wow)
PSU: Corsair AX860
Resevoir: Swiftech micro res
Pump+CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee drive II (Believe me, you need to save as much space as possible in there)
GPU waterblock: EK titan something or other
Radiator(s): 240MM and 280MM black ice stealth (520 in a prodigy WOOT WOOT :D )
Fittings: Monsoon free center compression fittings (gold to match the mobo of course)
Tubing: Primochill advanced LRT Atomic UV green (I even used the included Sysprep, I'll keep this spot updated with any plasticizer issues I hope to not have) I also got 2 bitspower 90 degree fittings that I like to ignore
Coolent: Primochill Ice intensified (UV Brite Green)
The modding process in all its painful glory
**respect for anyone who can guess where the SSD and HDD are** just noticed that the pictures don't exactly showcase it hah
Sorry for the sloppy pictures :( silly iphone why won't you take good low light pics
SpamBrie got a reaction from Brazsty in Should i whait for gta v to be realesed to pc or buy on xbox 360??
Personally if you could afford it I would get a PS3 rather than an Xbox since it has Blu-Ray and free multilayer.
But im just going to wait for PC *Fingers Crossed* it wont be too long!
