Pictures of your computer rigs! Post them here! - Page 567

Very cool. Is love to get a small form factor PC like that together.

Thank you. Only if it were a bit quieter. It's the PSU, it has due to SFX form factor only a 80mm fan and it gets noisy after system builds up heat. I hope adding that Noctua case fan keeps things a bit cooler.

Neat build.

 

That processor also has a tdp of 100w, I bet it produces quite a bit of heat there.

 

Similarly powerful i5 processors only consume one third as much power, though they have pretty weak GPU's and the price..

What screensaver do you use? Is it available on Windows 8?

Another one of my rigs. Bottlehead Crack OTL, Sennheiser HD650's.  Source is Nexus 7, running USBROM w/ Timur kernel and HiFiMeDiy Sabre USB Dac.  Tube is Chatham 5998 and Mullard box plate CV4003 (12AU7).

My humble setup:

My main computer while it was being built, about 8 weeks ago. Blurry cause it was like 3AM when I took this picture. Cable management is boring, didn't do much at all. No audio stuff (still don't have much), at the time I wasn't exactly into Hi-fi. Hi-fi conversion happened after my friend built his little thing, an got a pair of AKG Q701. That chucked me into this world.

 

Setup as of an hour ago, very comfortable. Nice foot warmer there too. 

Setup as of an hour ago too, used a flashlight to try and illuminate the lower PC. The higher one is the main rig (refered to as |FX), pretty little thing. The lower smaller computer (refered to as |X6 is actually all the parts that came out of the other case, and was just rebuilt into some Compaq computer I had lying around. Lower one will probably become a NAS at some point, if I can fit more HDDs into it. Otherwise it's a small, easier to bring around computer that is fairly quiet with the fans jury-rigged fans turned off. I generally use |X6 when I want a quiet computer, that delivers what I need, or I have some CPU intensive thing that needs to happen, that would just clutter up |FX. Both rigs run Windows Vista Ultimate x64 as the main OS.

Size comparison, Big sister next to little sister. |X6 hasn't been fully "modded" yet, it's just an empty case, with 2 optical drives in it. Taken about 8 weeks ago.

All my headphones on my headphone stand. My earbuds were somewhere, no clue where. In order from left to right: Logitech 980369-0403, AKG K240 Studio, JVC HARX300, along with my PSP and Nook. Taken a couple of weeks ago.

My headphone hanger, made from a wire coat hanger, in like 15 minutes. Taken a couple of weeks ago.

Last but not least, my "portable" stuff. Setup as of an hour ago. Devices from left to right: HTC Desire HD, 8GB iTouch 4th Gen (2011 ver.), 2go PC E09 Classmate. Very humble, yet capable stuff. 

 

I don't own any external DACs or Amps yet.

You sure have some nice gear hanging around there :dt880smile:. Btw try do some cable management on that mess, even by looking at that I get scared I migh trip on one of those cables hanging around and destroy some good stuff.

I've got those high brow speaker stands.  I'm quite adept at using the mini keyboard now.  I can easily stow it away and reclaim the desk with ample space to use as a normal desk.

 

I'm glad I ran up on this post Markness, I need to jump on the sale thread and post a 5.1 setup of Control One's! Matter a fact I have several items I've been meaning to put out there for a while now! By the way I think those are trick speakers stands and I've thought about picking up that lime green serpent for my AKG's

Thanks! The cables are a work in progress, since I pull my computers out of the desk a lot.One of those pictures has my Logitech 5.1 that I put away, which was the majority of my mess. Thanks for the advice~

Man, typing this up on an iTouch sucks.

Holy cow... beautiful setups... I see I'm not the only one sporting Ebm-papst fans. :D

 

That thing must get LOUD though. So many fans in that second rig... thank god they are Noctuas. I have 3 ebm-papst 4212/12H inside of my main rig, and when I turn them up... I thank god that I do have noise isolation in some of my stuff. I don't even want to imagine how much those rigs cost, pretty sure I'd die of a heart attack, had a stroke looking at the pictures already.

post #8504 of 9129

Thanks.

 

All of the Notuas are mounted with the rubber pins, minus the top mounted (pull) ones on the 540. I did place a rubber grommet in between the radiator and the fan screws to reduce the vibration as much as possible. The raptors in the 540 also sit on a neoprene bedding. The rig overall runs fairly quiet. I haven't dba'd it yet but it is unnoticeable until I crank the cards to 100%, and even then it is drowned by the game sound. So when browsing the net it is pretty much dead quiet.

post #8505 of 9129

Nice, my PC is loud even while it's doing nothing, I guess that's the side effect of my fans. But my PC stay nice and cool with no OCing, so I can't complain. With the fans at the minimum, It's usually toned down (without music) by all of my headphone/earbuds, with music, it's not really there. I never check how loud my rig is too, all I know is it's loud.
