Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

Recommended Posts

Went through a few aesthetic changes to my PC 

After about 5 years I finally swapped out my NZXT S340 case.

Went with the Lian li pc-o11. Also went a but further and added 3 Corsair LL120's + their LED lighting pro kit.

I originally had two unbranded LED strips connected directly to my mobo.

Also replaced most of my cables with cable mod cables.

 

Here are few picture I took while I put the parts into their new body:

I did make some changes since taking these pictures.

The cable you see at the top right that's connecting the LED strips to the lighting node pro was moved to the top left to help hide it.

Also my Elgato capture card is missing from the last picture lol

I also used some of the provided velcro straps to tie up the 6 pin and 8 pin PICE cables to my graphics card.

Just curious why you have the CPU fan blowing forward and in "pull"?

Good eye! I totally missed that.

As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

Did that so it wouldn't be fighting with the 3 Corsair fans. Those fans are pulling air towards them (exhausting out the side of the case) so I didn't want the CPU fan pull air the other way. I don't know if it would make a huge difference over all. I had a few friends recommend I do that.

 

EDIT: It wasn't pulling in my old case since I had fans on the front of the case pulling air in.

I figured it was to keep the air moving the same direction. Makes sense. Might not make a huge difference, but I would have the CPU fan on the other side of the cooler, pushing the air through it.

Oh okay. I didn't know if that would make a difference or not but I'll give it a try, thanks!

I have plans for the end of the month to do a brass tubing watercool loop so I will be replacing that cooler.

Also because of the high profile of that cooler I can't actually put the side panel back on haha.

My  bedroom setup. Optiplex 790 that I put a i7-2600 and 1050ti/500w psu from a b-stock sale in. Monitor was my old 1080p display that I swapped out for a 1440p display on my "main rig". Plays fifa at 1080p 75fps so not bad for such an old system.

Need to actually clean up and finish my setup, but here's the latest pic of my rig itself:

IMG_1922.thumb.jpg.8257c5c0191dc176212695458aec657c.jpg

 

Was a pain to get all the hardware in there and some of my HDDs are misbehaving 😢 but it didn't explode yet. 

Currently running a 5960X and RVII on that poor single 360 slim rad, can't push the CPU much higher than 4.5Ghz (at 1.2v or so) due to temp restraints. 

Setup is currently a K70 Lux RGB with MX Browns, standard G502, and I haven't decided if I'll keep running my 25" 1080p ultrawide or go back to my normal aspect 1080p monitor. Ultrawide has insanely good colors, black levels, and contrast, I run it at 75Hz (thankfully it'll do that, the stock 60Hz feels so choppy, I can't even shoot straight in Destiny 2). My "normal" monitor is a proper 144Hz (up to 180Hz via options in the OSD) 1ms G-Sync TN panel. Colors are pretty awful though and everything is washed out, it was one of the original 2 G-Sync displays first to market (I think) a while ago so it's quite an old panel AFAIK. Then I have a nice standing desk and some little accessories. Once I get my stuff cleaned up and all the cables managed I'll get pics of the full setup. 😎

 

In the meantime, here's a badly lit pic of how the setup looked before I completely destroyed my organization by rebuilding my rig (I had to pull something from virtually every box on that shelf and some others in my room, there's hardware everywhere now):

Man it looks awesome! 

Thanks! I like how the ZMT tubing looks, though sadly this isn't as clean as the last iteration:

161848863_IMG_48643.thumb.JPG.6637f10608ccb9f6a15278e7174c439a.JPG

Though for now it works fine, once I can be bothered to rebuild it for what feels like the zillionth time (I started with this case as an 18th birthday send-off gift, and an i5 2400 with a 1050 Ti, have worked my way up since then so it's been rebuilt an insane amount of times) I plan to move to a different case and put one of my older boards in here anyways.

Here sits the Planet Smasher as it worked on Folding Month 2019. It has since returned to its more permanent home, where it will soon hopefully be finished up and cleaned better of the dust that accumulated during the event.

This is my battlestation. A Z820 that will receive a pair of new CPU`s and an RTX 2080. This has been in moi`s possession for some time now, mainly related to tasks with my work, but mostly used for gaming. An average E5-2630 v2 x2, 32GB PC3-14900R, 2x SAS 600GB drives under RAID 0, 2x Micron M500, Samsung NVMe 970 250GB, some other 1 and 2TB drives. A Radeon RX570 8GB by Saphire.

I know the screens are different sizes, but that`s what I have. The LP2475w, because of it`s color and it`s dramatically reduced eyestrain due to the CCFL, and the other one I got as a present.

He has, it's in a weird state of disarray because a couple days before the GPU showed up the machine wouldn't boot, so we spent a lot of time screwing around to figure out what was wrong. I've needled him to take care of it and he's just kinda like "Meh, I'm usin' it." Maybe one of these days I'll do it for him...stay tuned...

Here is my main computer Dell XPS not a battle station it is enough for my needs I use to mostly watch XXX videos.  I am planning to get a 1060 video card in the near future for the 43" LG UM7300 TV am I using as a monitor

I`ve had experience and "professional" education and a degree and I can tell anybody that I`ll stick to these machines in the future. Yes, they`re far from perfect, but are sturdy, heavy, brilliant support with drivers (The Z820 is 7 years old and has drivers from XP to Windows 10), it has regular BIOS updates for the vulnerabilities. You do get quality and security when buying them. Many people shove them in the "useless" category, because they don`t know better. I`m sure even Linus would find something beautiful in this type. I mean, a regular computer would undergo it`s user through at least 8 steps of changing a PSU. This machine has exactly 2: 1. Remove old PSU from slot. 2. Shove the new one in and power it on.
