There's no pride in just spending a lot of money on new parts, it's what you do with them that's cool. IMO taking an old build as far as it can go is pretty dope.

Just made a vesa stand for my triple boot system, since the monitor was too low.

In theory, a Z400 can only have two drives, but the floppy disk bay has exactly the right dimensions to be repurposed as an extra 3.5" drive cage.

Exactly. When money is basically no object, it's always the same recipe; Latest i7 + mountain of ram + 1080Ti + high-end SSDs and RGB everything. :P 

 

I like to see what I can get that's a little older, but still performs well on an extremely low budget. That's more fun to me. ;) 

 

Side note: I'm not bashing new high-end builds, they cool. It's just when you've seen a few, you've seen most.

Then you get nutcases like me that are too broke to obtain good parts, so you win a few giveaways and throw a 3570K into your OptiPlex 7010 DT with a 7570 xD

Hi I'm a trash can and I like getting warning points by a passive-aggressive mod for being passive-aggressive. Nice to meet you!

Also, the PSU tier list + cultists are a joke that nobody should actually take seriously

Not sure if I have posted my current system, I build a new one beginning of the year but have now given that to my wife and I have the old machine which I want to push and get as much out of it as I can.

 

FX8350 running at 4.6ghz at 1.404v, I can get 4.7ghz at 1.446v with no problems but dont like the temps it gets to while gaming.

Cooler Master MA620P (200w) cooler with 3 x ML120 Corsair fans

Kingston Hyper X Blu 16gb 8x2 1600mhz running at 1.65v at 2133mhz

On the Asus ROG Crosshair V Foumla Z board, NB running at 2600 and HT link at 2600

Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 v1.0 at stock gaming mode but with 500mhz on the memory. I can run it up to 2100 on the core clock but found at stock core at 2000 is best for temps.

Running it in the x8 slot as needed extras air flow around the NB, ran tests and I actually got a higher fire strike score here due to air flow. 

RM1000x PSU

All housed in a modified NZXT Phantom 410 case, have put in a side window, and a front 3 x 120mm fan mount. There is a hole in the drive bay door for the top fan but no image attached. Deep Cool RGB light strips, normally run them in white as i like the look of the inside of my case or light blue.

Front intake case fans 3 x ML120 Corsair fans, top intake 2 x 140mm quiet Corsair fans. Yes all intake, top intake help cool the VRM, NB and ram. If anyone knows the FX series and the crosshair board they run hot as hell, and even overclocked with 23c temp room my NB sits at 60c.

And yes all the fan labels are the same way.

 

Future plans, i not sure if i want to keep modifying the case or purchase a new case. New larger cooler either, Noctua D15, U14 or Cryorig R1.

I like seeing those types of builds.  Some chaps out there can really do some nice builds with old parts.

Seems to be the case with most average high end builds I see too.

 

Though, you got a nutty like me that needs to get my lazy butt and finish my main rig which probably not going to be conventional to others and not make some sense to others.  Reason:  gaming tends to be lower on my list for my builds or sometimes not even consider.  Along with the fact I go function over form.

Relatively, yeah. There are few people here and there but most sit either on some Kaby/Coffee Lake or Ryzen. And most people sitting on HEDT have moved to x299 or Threadripper. Not saying there aren't x99 people but I get the feeling that there aren't many of us ;-)

x99 motherboard are very cheap right now, even on Newegg but CPU is too expensive like 5820k and 6800k. Both CPU cost over 200$ on ebay. I guess this is why people choosing Kaby/Coffee Lake or Ryze. Or x99 doesn't have many RGB support9_9

What lights did you use for the desk illumination

I used some random rgb lights from my local store and I have some behind my monitors too

Any will work but use double ended table instead of its own mounting as it's not very strong

HERE IT IS! The programming/gaming den. Everything gaming satisfied here! Couch gaming with 4 wireless xbox 360 controllers, a gamecube adapter (with awesome mint GC controllers) for melee, two pretty capable rigs for LAN gaming, etc etc.

 

 

My main rig! Triple 75hz 1080p with a 900p on top for good measure! (Specs in sig.)

My geek shelf! On the top right is my HTPC, I ended up gutting a lame HP PC and replacing it with my own parts. I ended up getting the motherboard, CPU and heatsink for 8 bucks!

it's specs are:
AMD 6600k @ 4.2ghz

GT 1030 2GB GDDR5

8GB DDR3

250GB Silicon Power SSD

1TB WD Blue 7200RPM HDD

Windows 7 SP1 64 Bit

WIRED ETHERNET BTW (It was hell getting ethernet to this little hole I tell you.)

 

I installed the following USB devices internally: Bluetooth receiver, USB Wifi Adapter ,Xbox wireless receiver, Keyboard/trackpad combo receiver and a air mouse receiver.

 

It's a little beast! It mainly gets used for emulators, but it can hold its own in any game!

 

 

 

Here's the other PC, it's specs are:

i5 2400, GTX 670 2GB, 120GB SP SSD, 12GB DDR3, 2 1TB WD Blue drives, blah blah blah...

It's mainly for programming, but it does see some use as a secondary gaming station for LAN gaming!

 

So yeah, there it is! It's taken a million years to get a setup like this, this was me in 2015:

Secondary PC's specs were garbage, the monitors were crappy, the room felt NASTY, the room was tiny, it was set up like a boring office, no couches, big TV or anything of that sort. The room also seemed to perpetually reek of dirty socks. xD AND WOULD HAVE KILLED US TO SCRUB THAT WALL I MEAN... Well, still had some fond memories in that room. haha
