    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    Hey, would you mind not quoting pictures in future? Just saves people with slow connections loading double the pictures. Thanks, Alex.

    where is your rig at your desk

    On the floor under my desk to the right. Back feet are on some folded cardboard to make a space for airflow to the PSU intake, not that it intakes much. Checked the filter after about a year and a half, no dust...

    How can I turn down my chassis fan without speedfan?

    Use a fan controller?

    Nice keyboard mousemat you have there.

    Thanks, sound dampening material is stock in the Define R4. Lighting is custom though. I found this which seems to be decent.

    Clean Power

    Have you tried wrapping the power adapter in tinfoil? Sounds crazy I know but it could just have bad shielding that the audio stuff is picking up. Ground that tinfoil too.

    Finally got my hands on a decent camera.

    Tech Gifts for Non-techies Giveaway!

    I would give (and setup of course) a WD 4TB My Cloud EX2 NAS to my family. I'll be going to university soon so all the movies & TV they stream from my PC won't be available for much longer. This would solve that. Really nice way to give back to the community, thanks LMG.
  9. Got my 16000mAh battery bank free, got my 980SC for £300.

    Who thinks that used parts are worth it

    I have a used 2600K, GTX980SC, AX850. I get them just after new stuff drops as people are upgrading. I wouldn't have been able to get that 980 had it been new.

    PSU's capacitator blown help*

    I wouldn't run that PSU anymore, it'll be sending a lot of ripple to the components which will kill them after a while.

    Fractal Design Define R4 airflow..?

    Sounds like it could well be.

    Fractal Design Define R4 airflow..?

    Seems weird to me that you're struggling with a better cooling setup than me. I run 2 AF140s in the front as intakes and one AF140 in the back exhausting through a H90. Temps idle at 30C and max out at 70C most of the time. I'm guessing you've tried re-applying the thermal compound?

    Looks really good, I would rotate that back Noctua 90° so the cable for it is hidden better and maybe group together those GPU power wires? Nice cable management otherwise.

    When was the last time you shut down your PC?

    If you're running MSX then it's to do with the "Fast Boot-Up" option being on. Turn that off and it should be sorted. As for my uptime:
