READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST!!!

I feel like we need a place just for PC enthusiasts to discuss hardware, release schedules for upcoming chips, any relevant upgrade questions, and troubleshooting.
Here is the thread.

Couple of guidelines to keep in mind while posting in here:

1. Absolutely NO vs. discussion. If you feel like you can't discuss PC related hardware in a calm and adult manner without bringing consoles into it you will be banned from posting in this thread.

2. You MAY post pictures of your rig should you desire. (I'm going to merge the 'Post your Rig' Thread with this.)

3. This is NOT a thread about PC games (we have a stuck thread for that now so use that to talk about a old/recent release or create a new thread entirely.) You can mention a certain game/requirements and how it relates to your setup but don't drag on the conversation. This is a thread about hardware, not software.

If everybody can follow these simple rules this should be a good thread for PC oriented hardware discussion.

You can add what you like about your case/etc and what modifications you made to it if you did. If you want and if you have some crazy spec'd out beast post some pictures of the innards as well! :hehe:

I will start: Sorry for the blurry photos (cell phone grabs LOL)...but you get the gist of it...

Yeah its only 4.5 inches wide and 13" tall. I believe 17" deep.

It doesnt have room for SLI or anything like that, but I will like just swap the GPU out in a year or two. After 2-3 Ill just replace the whole thing.

Okay...from the top it looked the same as the Corsair Vengeance Pro Ram sticks that I have.
The red heat shield makes them look identical.

Yeah...even if you could SLI in that case the heat build up would be ridiculous. Still a nice case though.

780 right?
I luv that KB man!
Yup!

The config of the video card is different with this case/mobo, the fans on the GPU face the vents on the side that the monitor is on.

And I cant recommend this keyboard enough. I was hesitant due to the price, but I was looking for a mechanical and the lights matching the case is what sold me the most. Best keyboard I have ever used. Razer Black Widow 2013. So clicky and majestic.

I've got a Rosewill mechanical keyboard. It has like one blue LED design in the middle and that is it. Gets the job done though...but damn Adam! That keyboard looks like sex. I'm kind of jelly actually.

Its $140 which is why I balked at first. Im glad I sold myself on it though. The thing is a beast. Literally. It weighs about 5lbs.

I just need to upgrade to the Deathadder 2013 mouse so I can complete my trinity of green.

You can use photobucket......or a german site that DarkPassenger pointed me to called abload.de.
Both are free...but photobucket is free up to a certain GB of size then you have to pay.

Now that the consoles are out.....and it has been some time I figured alot of people have gone through some rig upgrades. Well....time to post 'em!
RULES ARE SIMPLE: This doesn't have to be your main platform for gaming (for me my PC is) but if you have ever played a game on your PC at all....just post some pictures of the rig you played it on. Laptop or desktop. You can add what you like about your case/etc and what modifications you made to it if you did. If you want and if you have some crazy spec'd out beast post some pictures of the innards as well! :hehe:

I love that HAF 912 when I had it, I just outgrew it, went to a CM HAF 932, outgrew that and my system is now in a Corsair 750D. But the 912 it is a LOVELY case with fantastic airflow.

Yeah. The HAF 912 is pretty sweet! I've had it for a while! I love it. Though it is getting a little cramped in there these days with a 780. When I upgraded from a 660 I had to remove the HDD cage.
Love the airflow on it.

I had to do the same thing when I had a GTX 580, I had to remove the cage as well.
