    Thanks- that overclock was just for benching at the Bit-tech and ASUS Overclocking day not my day to day rig unfortunately :( its what they provided, everyone was thus a bit more liberal with the voltages than with their own chips xD

    Aha found the link to the video of the day http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2011/07/19/bit-tech-overclocking-event-in-association/1 -I was part of team six

    Same rating as before KidMod, solid PC.

    Can we give this thread a more constructive twist? It seems like a lot of the ratings are just 'how new/high end is your rig', without much of a focus on the actual builds.

    My PC has poor performance compared to many of you guys, but I still take pride in its neatness, looks and cooling ability.

    Let's post up pictures of your actual computer and get opinions/ratings/advice on that! I'm curious to see how all of you folks do it as well!

    I'll start:

    [​IMG]
    No internal optical drive for me, just a 140mm fan ziptied to the drive cage.

    [​IMG]
    My weird CPU cooler with a couple of Scythe 120mm fans.

    [​IMG]
    ..And the wide shot, did as best as I could without a modular PSU. As you can see, airflow is completely front to back, with three fans on the top half and one covering the hard drives. The cables at the bottom are ziptied into bundles, and they're not visible through the side window unless if you look down into it. Yes I have two 2.5" hard drives not counting the SSD, problem? I wish that I had some sleeving for the molex->PCI-E power cables, they stand out more than anything through the window..

    Front view, card reader is a bit ugly :(

    Fair point :)

    I would say 7/10 for build quality, looks pretty neat although you lose a mark for the orientation of the cooler - better IMO would be to have the cooler in an inverted 'L' shape with the edges against the back and top of the case as you'd draw clean air from the top and exhaust it to the rear. I had the same cooler on my work PC a few years ago (will post pics when I can dredge them up).

    My previous rig, Galileo:

    Specs: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @ 3.7GHz, 8GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066MHz, ATI HD4870 512MB, Corsair C300 128MB, 2 x Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (RAID0), ASUS P5Q-PRO, ASUS Xonar Essence STX (also carried over to Poseidon)
