Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

Recommended Posts

1600MHZ is the same fast as 1600MHZ. Higher module density for your obvious 3200 MHz is stated as Higher module density. The context is that if i had 8gb of 1600mhz ddr3 and you had 8gb of 1600mhz ddr4 they are the same exact speed.

Heres whats specific:

120GB SSD King

3.6 Ghz LGA 1156

Monitor is 1280 x 1024 pixels resolution 60hz

 

it is the most powerful cheap(<--------)

 

I have a cheap VR Tek 1080p WVR1 and i have tried LGA 1156 overclock and...it just doesent work with the 2009 year.

Perhaps the overclock is too high? Or is it not supported by the CPU? Google up your CPU model number to make sure, and read an Overclocking guide if you'd like to know more.

Some P55 motherboards straight up didn't have overlocking, and you'd need the unlocked i5 660k (650k? idk) or the i7 875k to overlock, or you'd need to do blk overclocking or whatnot. If I remember I had the i7 870, not the 875k, which had a max boost of 3.6GHz, which is what they might have. No bueno for overclock. Still wasn't a bad CPU for CSGO or Battlefield back in the day (Or rather MW2/3 and Minecraft Beta).

Threadripper 2950x system ordered and paid for. So excited. 

 

I live in chilliwack BC and I am working in the Yukon at the moment. This build will be completed as I fly home around 27th.

 

Its AMD all the way. At least I tried to get what research said was best. Couple improvised items.

 

Did I do ok people?

I simply got a prebuilt computer from Dell, the Dell XPS 8910. Pictures are from Windows Central. It's a nice and clean design, lots of ports.

 

Monitors are two Dell 27" LED UltraSharp U2715H running at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 60 Hz. They have silver fleet and black bezels that really match the case, for the keyboard I went with the Logitech G413 Silver to again, match the case and monitors. Mouse is a Logitech G305 paired with a normal sized cheap blue mousepad I picked up somewhere a long time ago.

 

Featuring Windows 10 Professional and Microsoft Office with Word, Powerpoint and Excel for a lifetime.

 

Intel Core i7-6700 3.40 GHz

16 GB RAM from Crucial

500 GB SSD Western Digital Blue

Intergrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz

DELL OEM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB VRAM

DELL OEM 460 Watt PSU

The one thing I've never understood with that design is why they couldn't just relocate a few bits and make the PSU go into a less-retarded spot.

Nice, I have a similar model dell prebuilt in the same case, but ith i5-6400 and rx 480. Best part is I got it for $150, just needed replacement motherboard.

 

 

Just cleaned up my audio setup and got my vertical linear tracking turntable working:

It works fine for me, and it makes the case smaller. The PSU flips out easily and toollessly to get out of the way.

I've got 3, been lurking long enough I may as well post but pardon the lack of photos I may edit them in later on.

 

I have an Intel Xeon X3470 at 3.84Ghz (it'll do 4 but the power draws are insane) with 8GB of DDR3 1600 (4x2GB) and a GTX 650 sitting in a GigaByte GA-P55A-UD4P with some water cooling from around when the first Matrix movie came out Frankensteined to it. It's not pretty, it's not fast, but it's...well it's not very good at anything really. I'd never messed with first gen Core stuff so I was curious because it was all so cheap. I guess it's a good room heater when I run it at 4Ghz and it's cranking out around 350W just from the CPU!

 

The HTPC is an i7 4950HQ at 4.0Ghz all core turbo with 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1866 and an EVGA GTX 960 4GB FTW in an Asus Z87I-DELUXE house in a Coolermaster Elite 130. I use this one most frequently, daily actually on the TV for watching Netflix, shows, anime, general media consumption. I wasn't happy with air cooled temps and case airflow isn't great with the 130 but I like the size of it, so I grabbed an OEM Dell water cooler from one of their Alienware PC's for cheap on eBay and made it work. It still gets warm, peaking out at almost 80C because it's an older design of cooler and thin radiator with not the best fast (fan is just what I had around). The awesome fan that came with it, a beastly Nidec, wouldn't fit as it's an extra thicc 120MM.

 

And finally I just tossed together an i5 4590 in a ThermalTake Core V1 case that I've had sitting, the motherboard is an H87I-Plus which is the old HTPC board, it's got 16GB DDR3 1866 because oddly 1866 was cheaper than 1600 when I bought it. I'm working on getting a video card for it, hoping for a 1070 but may be settling for a RX 580 8GB. Currently a spare R7 250 2GB, so I can work on tuning the CPU wattage as low as possible to try to use the Arctic Alpine 12 passive cooler with a Noctua 200MM front case fan to cool it. The Hyper 212 I have as spare is too tall for the case, the heat pipe nipples stick out the top so it looks pretty funny. I've gotten the i5 4590 down to around 70W (prime95 small FFT), I've read other people have used this passive cooler on CPU's around that wattage without issues as long as there's good case airflow so for $12 I was willing to gamble. If it doesn't work out I'll use a different cooler or maybe just the stock cooler or just leave the top panel window out and YOLO with the heatsink sticking out goofy like. This PC is intended to play Battletech hence the 16GB of RAM, sadly the H87 board can only use upto 1600 memory so I've turned the timings down as low as they'll go with stability, 9's across the board is as good as it'll get.

 

Edit: Arctic passive cooler did not work out with the i5 4590 at 70W, once it gets past about 80C it starts to thermally run away, TDP rises to 80W and it thermally throttles then the system hangs because the undervolt isn't stable at high temps I guess. I'll try with my 4590S once I have it back from out on loan or just use a different smaller active heat sink like my Zalman CNPS 8900. The passive cooler is enough to do an undervolted i3, but I'm out of socket 1150 boards with CPU voltage control at the moment :lol:

Finally got around to installing everything on the new desk.

 

1074906722_Desk2019.JPG.326fdf651da965cebe76449456fe7260.JPG

Main PC on the cabinet on the right, secondary PC on the ground on the left side.

 

Previous setup is at around 2/3 of page 969

 

 

 

standing position:

 

1466167793_Desk2019-standing.JPG.9adfaf7831e034f8bcf94edd1e1e30b8.JPG

 

Lowest and highest positions:

 

995629756_Desk2019-lowest.JPG.835b39c26e55b183d7ba03a73d407afe.JPG

 

162247585_Desk2019-highest.JPG.c807a4276301de4b0357352b232cbae8.JPG

Full range is 65cm or 25.6" (desk height 65-130cm or 2'2" to 4'3"), which presented quite a challenge when it comes to cable lengths due to the PCs and the subwoofer not being on the desk itself.

 

Accessories left:

 

537549066_Desk2019-Itemsleft.JPG.ba0b8c04e992e136723c705431c75c4b.JPG 

254667388_Desk2019-Itemsleft2.JPG.e8cc01709e1629577f3371757c01e73d.JPG

On the left edge I used double-sided tape to attach three 220V sockets with an on/off switch.  There's a support beam right behind the housing, so the whole thing won't move when I plug something in. 
Right next to the switch there's an RJ45 socket, for when I need to work on a PC that needs internet.  No need to crawl behind the cabinet to plug a cable into the switch or anything, there's a socket right there on the side of the desk and it's already live.  Just plug the cable in there and you're good to go.

On the front edge I attached some random cable comb thingy (no idea where I got it, had it for years) to hold my USB cables, a 5-port Aukey charger and the desk's controls.  The display turns off after a while, I had just finished putting the desk at standing height when I took that photo.

 

Accessories right:

 

595255560_Desk2019-itemsright.JPG.6fabed7000da07ce137d584e2b0dde59.JPG

Left : Ugreen USB KVM switch, to switch the keyboard, mouse, webcam and microphone between the PCs with a single press of a button.  I got fed up with having 2 keyboards and mice on my desk, so I figured I'd give this a go.  Works fine so far. 

Center : Sitecom 7-port USB3.0 powered hub (5 at the front, 2 at the back).  I'm having some issues with that one, my phone doesn't want to do data transfer when I connect it through that hub. I'll probably replace it with another hub eventually.

Right : Transcend USB 3.0 card reader.  I use SD and MicroSD cards enough to warrant permanent installation.

 

Still need to do some tidying behind the cabinet, but my back is quite sore now and I don't want to push it too much.

Got my custom sleeved 24pin ATX cable today..

 

It was pain to install the cable while I insist to put back the fan behind the heatsink, ended up get rid again the side plate and the additionall storage drives to put another fan on the cooler to be push-pull configuration.

 

Credit to "xinvicious" the local cable mod guy who made this for me..

I just collect/ purchase broken laptops, or get given them by people that don't want to throw them away. Then I repair them for fun, and then I upgrade them as much as I possibly can and put them in my working laptop pile and I have a rotation of what laptop I take to work each day.  I do all kinds of repair, purchasing, salvaging parts, smd rework.  I don't actually sell them though, I just like repairing and collecting. I do the same stuff with desktops too, but laptops are funner.  I have 3 crates of GPUs of varying ages for builds and boxes of ram and motherboards too.  Just years of collecting, repairing etc. Never sold any of it, not really my thing, I just collect.

Then I repair them for fun, and then I upgrade them as much as I possibly can and put them in my working laptop pile and I have a rotation of what laptop I take to work each day.  I do all kinds of repair, purchasing, salvaging parts, smd rework.  I don't actually sell them though, I just like repairing and collecting. I do the same stuff with desktops too, but laptops are funner.  I have 3 crates of GPUs of varying ages for builds and boxes of ram and motherboards too.  Just years of collecting, repairing etc. Never sold any of it, not really my thing, I just collect.

If there's a tech co-op in your city you should join and donate some of that hardware, they'll distribute it to the people who need computers.
