@MonsieurX: Nice setup you got going there; what resolution are your monitors? They look higher than 1080?

1440P on the left,1080P on the right

Ah sweet. 1440 is definitely the way to go, my monitors are both 1440, love em.

Also, is that a Logitech G500? If so, then snap! haha

Yup! G500 master race.

Tis a sweet mouse. Though mine came with a shitty cable that had some of the outer 'fabric' cover preventing the cable being properly straightened out so had to partially butcher it.

Well the PSU isn't blowing hot air on the computer, the GPU might be blowing hot air onto the PSU

Both the GPU and the PSU suck air in, not blow it out..

Yes, i realize. Although, depending on the GPU cooling, the fan will intake air but not expel it from the case so the warmed air comes from the GPU to the PSU. Facing up the PSU will be drawing in warm air from inside the case

Not necessarily. Like I said, it depends on the case and how the airflow is designed..Many have a side fan blowing air directly in to the PSU or another solution. These days there are tons of different effective designs

Eh he can build his PC any way he wants....but it's still better to have the fan the other way.

Not really, my PSU is rated to produce 100% load at 50'C. Having the fan facing up is nothing, hell half the time the fan doesn't even need to spin up. I find its easier to have it exhausting air from the case than sucking up air from the carpet, the dust filter on the bottom would get clogged all the time.

You cant see his CPU so im assuming you mean the heatsink?

I had an idea what his CPU was (one of my friends almost has the same set up) so I was commenting on that, now why don't you take that douchebag attitude and make sure you hit your ass on the way out.

Considering he appears to be running a X79 chipset motherboard, it's pretty much a given that he has a nice CPU

Considering you cant see his CPU its not a given, like I said, ill assume he was talking about the heatsink, after all its glowing and looks nice.

X79 boards only use the 2011 socket which is only for a series of high end i7's. lostrib is right, it is a given the CPU is nice. Verdict is still out on what @Ballroompirate meant though...

Very true, it's a 3930k :)

thanks. Yeah it would be a waste of money if it were just for gaming. I do a lot of work in Unreal Engine, and also do lots of 3D rendering; so that processor helps chomp through everything, and the RAM just means I can have everything open at once with no slow down.

The camera on my phone isn't the best, but you get the idea.

Now I think about it I should have probably used the web cam.

Says the guys who is mad because he got corrected because he is too dumb and has no knowledge of PC parts and confused the heatsink with a CPU, I dont have to boost my ego lil kid, it just seems that way to dumb people when they get called out on their stupidity, the only one that failed is you, you failed at knowing PC parts, you failed at knowing the difference between a heatsink and cpu, you fail at life, so I understand why you would feel this way towards me, just remember lil kid its not my fault LOL...........................dummy.

Only change since I made that video is now my Kinect is mounted to the top of my TV. Got a set of Polk 4 Shot headphones coming along with Titanfall next week too.

Very impressive! Correct me if I'm wrong. Is the rig on the left running Forza 3, the last Forza to allow 3 monitors?

#130 Posted by HadOne2Many (1176 posts) -

@FoxbatAlpha: Nope Forza 4 supports it too. Horizon was the first Forza game that didn't (even Forza 1 on the OG Xbox had 3 screen support). Hopefully they bring it back for FM6.

Actually, it was you that made it about the heatsink. If someone recognises the motherboard chipset then they would have known the available processors for said series of motherboards....

But even if he didn't, even if it was about the heatsink.... who gives a monkeys? You seem to be taking it way too seriously.

I sure did say it was the heatsink, When did I ever deny that? Again the motherboard and cpu was not the subject, so why do you continue to bring that up? It was the heatsink which he confused with it being the cpu, if I wanted to talk about your motherboard and cpu then obviously thats what I would have been talking about instead of the heatsink, im not taking anything more seriously than you or the others.

Also, ignore the troll, that's all he is.

Hmmm i really need to upgrade my PC here soon, I'll look into the Corsair cases once I start looking for parts. I'm liking the C70 Gunmetal case from my quick glimpse at looking through newegg.

Also I know the guy is a troll lol :P

Nice case that, though I don't really go with windowed cases anymore personally. I do highly recommend Corsair cases though, really sweet cases.

What is your current system?

What is your current system?

This is back in 2010 when I first got it. Since then the only part that I've replaced is the GPU, went from a Nvidia 400 series to a Nvidia GTX 550 Ti (I really want to get a 660 or a 670, I'm leaning towards the 660 since it's $200 now) and once I've build my new PC I'm gonna aim for the costs to be around $850.

System specs

GPU: GTX 550 Ti

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 255 Processor 3.10 GHz

Memory: 8 GB DDR3 (4 GB usuable)

HDD: 1 TB

How much did it take cost to build your rig? (also what case is that?)

er, about £3600. I will likely never spend that much on a rig again, but it is a beast.

The case is the Corsair 550D, really nice case with soundproofing in too.

Also, ignore the troll, that's all he is.

Hmmm i really need to upgrade my PC here soon, I'll look into the Corsair cases once I start looking for parts. I'm liking the C70 Gunmetal case from my quick glimpse at looking through newegg.

Also I know the guy is a troll lol :P

I'm gonna go mini-ITX for my next build.. I have seen some sickening set ups. Fractal node 304 is so small it looks like a nice sleek box on your desk . You can even fit a water cooler or aftermarket fan for your CPU, and up to 8 hard drives.. Only downside is there is only two RAM slots on a minit ITX mobo, which is okay with me, and no room to SLI, but a single gtx880 should fit just fine. Vents for the GPU and PSU and plenty of airflow if you tie all the cables around the edges

Never tried Vizio. I recently tried out Dell, gotta say, their high end monitors are unbelievably good.

Well, for what I use them for anyway.

I've heard amazing things about Dell monitors, my friend still has his and he's had it for a good 4-5 years and he got it for free from our friend who use to work at the CU campus tech lab.

They're expensive, but amazing colours. Great for Photoshop :)
