Seems like we need a dedicated thread where we can all bask in the glow of someone else's sweet computer, and occasionally our own.

So this is a thread for everyone to chuck up pictures of their current rig, or previous, if that is the desire, so we can all be inspired to spend more. :P

Case Picture Post has been moved to another post below, to help the flow of this thread a bit.

I'll probably change the wording of this in the next few days but we will see! Also if anyone can suggest a better name for this It would be greatly appreciated!

To all posters, please limit the resolution of the photos you post in the thread to a maximum of about 900 px wide. If you want to post a higher resolution photo, please upload it elsewhere and link to it (I don't think it is possible to upload it and not have it displayed).

I'm not posting a photo of mine – it isn't worth looking at!

I think this thread is long overdue... Will also post up my rig's photo... once I've finished building it :P

On a side note, where can I find carbon fibre or carbon fibre look alike sheets? Tried searching for em in NZ, but couldn't find any...

Have a look at the 3M Di Noc Carbon Fibre Range. A company that stocks them is this one. Really easy to apply, and have seen it applied to alot of computer builds especially on the international computer forums.

To all posters, please limit the resolution of the photos you post in the thread to a maximum of about 900 px wide. If you want to post a higher resolution photo, please upload it elsewhere and link to it (I don't think it is possible to upload it and not have it displayed).


Also a good place to resize photos for free before posting is Here

On a side note, I probably should move my Pic off the first post. So here my Case is:

An easy way for windows users to resize images is the 'Image Resizer' here:

http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

It adds a "resize pictures" entry to the context menu. So you can do one or hundreds at once and it allows custom resolutions. Recommend it.

Yes, I've heard very good things about that before, so it is definitely worth considering.

Thanks to both of you for coming up with something I didn't think of – a good way to resize said photos down to a suitable size!

Yeah this looks amazing. Will download it when I get back from Uni.

Back on topic, does anyone actually have case pictures? Am I going to have to enact the rule: No Pic, No Post?

That's the point of a case forum, for people to be inspired at creating themselves, for others to suggest changes to other members cases, for the community to be more close knit as a whole, and for others to be shamed into making their own cases nicer (That does include cable management.) :P

Saying that, there needn't be any negative comments at all.

I'm not sure that that is a good idea – what about people like me who don't have a case worth seeing? (Maybe it just means I have to get on with my idea... I won't take this further off topic by discussing it here! :P)

Very nice. I definitely need to step up my game and get my case done. And sleeved etc.

How thin is that GPU? Does it take up to slots on the IO panel? Or just the one?

Nice nice. Would also be cool to recolour the red stripes on your video card shroud to white.

The white exhaust fan is a cool accent, NZXT or Fractal Design?

If I remember correctly, aren't the fans custom painted?

And recolouring the Radeon Stripes would be pretty legit! Just go and monotone the build. Might be easier to change the exterior case to the white and paint the mesh black, then it would fit the optical drives etc. Did you end up emailing TechWorld?

You're right then S0up2up, it's just the stock CM exhaust fan that came with the case with a little mod to it.
What would be a good way to cover those red stripes? I'm not too keen on painting the GPU shroud since its value would go waaay down if I was to resell it.

As for the email to Techworld, I didn't end up doing it. I don't think I'll be able to afford another case or any computer parts any time soon. I need to replace the tyres on my truck before mid-june, so the case replacement/upgrade will have to wait a bit :(

Could use masking taping to cover the shroud, then a can of primer and a can of white paint. Shrouds are really easy to take off. But you would just need to make sure that you spend a bit of time with the masking :D

What about painting the masking tape, then putting it on semi-permanently (or putting it on before painting it)? I don't know, the heat may be too much for it to last well. But you could, at least in theory (it might not come off nicely after sitting on warm plastic for several months / a few years), take it off if you wanted to sell it.

Yes, that would probably be a better idea. It might require replacing every so often, but that is probably preferable to painting it.

I don't know if this is the best thread for my PC, but I need to post it up somewhere, I'm very proud of it :D It's the first PC I've really built with the parts I've wanted (I've been playing around with old PCs for years - mostly Pentium 4s). It took a while to get up to date with the new hardware, but I spent a long time researching before buying my parts. I use it for everything, but 3D animation, photo and video editing (e.g. Maya, Blender, Adobe CS, Lightroom) are some of the more demanding tasks I use it for.

Here's most the parts in my PC: https://pricespy.co....ist.php?l=63610
This is my facebook album of my PC with specs (hopefully it's visible) https://www.facebook...100001735304045

You will notice the PriceSpy list has an MSI 7770 instead of 2 EVGA 9800 GTs, my graphics cards have been bid on at TradeMe, and I am going to buy the MSI to replace them. (I actually have the two 9800 GTs, plus a GT 240 in it for the moment)
