Jeez, 3-way SLI and a 980. Dayum

That picture reminds me of when I took apart my HP laptop when the cpu fan died. I only had like 6 extra screws when I put it back together!
Only if everything was as simple as a MB.

Is that 3 Nvidia GPU's in SLI I see?

Nah no money bags wish I had gotten some. This was when I was working back then. Had plenty of green paper to spend.

Yep 3 way SLI EVGA GTX480 SC's (pretty much an overclocked 570). 1250watt PSU and close to 20TB's worth of hard drives. 980x @ 4.6 on an Asus Rampage 3 Ext, had 48GB of Mushkin Redline RAM but they had to be RMA'd so in that pic I was using 3x4GB OCZ 1866 sticks. I had 4 way SLI running for shiggles but needed a 1500watt PSU to provide the sufficient amount of amps on the 12v rail. Funny thing I ran that beast hooked up to a single 22inch monitor. lulz

 

I had no choice but to sell most of that rig because the GPU's was putting off too much heat and my power bills was through the roof. My rig was on most of the time. After parting the mobo, cpu, ram, some hdds and graphics cards I downgraded to a single core AMD Sempron build - worst decision ever made. 

 

I have upgraded now and my rig is still being built. Will take some pictures it's a WIP.

I can confirm that the D14 performs as good if not better than the H100i. And doesn't make that annoying pump noise either. Much happier now since switching a month back. This is on a 4770k

I wonder what a single-core is like...

This is how you cool your PC!  Almost forgot to take a photo before taking down my AC, still have some foil tape on the window :)

EDIT:  Also shows the prowess of the Nokia 808, GO TEAM NOKIA!

Only 6? Not good enough, I'm usually left with 12

LOL When I saw that picture the first thing that came into my head was "Nice microwave"  It seriously looks like a kitchen appliance from a distance and where it's sitting I guess it looks like it's on top of one of those mini fridges in a dorm or something.

H100 = D14 on idle @ same ambient temps. D14 trounces the H100 under 100% load temps. The only way you can get an H100 to perform equal or better the quiet D14 is put the fans on high speed (which is a leafblower) or change the fans to better ones and push pull double side.

If you've ever used a 2GHZ Pentium 4 from the 2003-2005 days then you'll know what it's like. Even with two 120GB SSD's in RAID 0 at 480mb/s + read and 450mb/s + write, it didn't help what the system lacked badly and that was a faster processor.

Honestly my next rig will NOT GLOW, going for all Notcua fans if I can! I freaking love the one I have now

I think Pentium 4 is good for desktop applications.  Let's argue about this now ;)

Hahaha that five and a quarter bay toaster is pure awesome. Windows based software controls for variable time and temps? I wan this would be the best gift ever.

Just picked up a 77 Bonneville heater core for my rad. I have all my master cam code generated, I just need to buy copper or brass stock and cnc the water block abd cover.
