I upgraded my rig again this time with a new Coolermaster HAF case and a lovely Q9650 due to the recent price drop.

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=WWe4G6MnuXo

Specs:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 at 3Ghz

4GB 800Mhz DDR2 RAM

1x SATA Western Digital 500 GB, 1x Seagate 200 GB hard drive

4870x2 2GB Sapphire ATI Radeon video card

32" LG LCD HDTV at 1920x1080 1080p

Antec TruePower Quattro 1000W ATX Power Supply

1x 20 LG DVD Burner

1x LG SATA BluRay & HDDVD Combo Drive

Running Windows XP Professional x64 SP2 and Server 2003 SP2

Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 motherboard

Coolermaster HAF 932 full tower case

At least this time I did some cable management, though not perfect but better than my previous rigs.

Also, I need a new cooler because my Zalman can't handle a quad core when overclocked.

Yeah, I saw that too. I payed the same price for my Q9450 (2.66GHz), and I could get a Q9650 (3GHz) instead!

However that is today, I got my Q9450 six months ago.

new specs!

Core 2 Duo E6750

MSI Neo P45

ECS nVidia 9600GT

M-Audio Delta AP 24/96

6gb G-Skill DDR2 (will be 8gb of DDR2-800 by the end of the month)

HL DVD-RW drive (have yet to get one with Lightscribe, but i can still wait)

Apple Mighty Mouse

Logitech wireless ergonomic keyboard (i'm getting a normal wired USB soon, can't stand wireless much longer)

FSP-300W (may be replaced with a 420HX soon if necessary)

some generic card reader (but i need to replace it with one that can read SDHC)

1x HP f1703 (the second one died, i'm waiting for a good price on a new panel)

For cooling, I've got a Scythe Ninja Rev A on the CPU, a Thermalright HR-05 on the Northbridge, and an Accelero S1 Rev 2 on the 9600GT. I would have done more on the southbridge, but i'd have to get the Thermalright HR-05 SLI, and even with that, I don't think it would fit with the chipset on an angle.

Temps are solid and low, CPU idling around 28C, GPU idling around 35C, and both drives idling around 34C. Northbridge sits around 30C, southbridge is around 26C.

I finally wired up the front panel audio as well, works like a charm, even though it's not exactly wired correctly. since there were no jack detection wires, i just plugged in the audio headers so it will actually play audio out front and back at the same time, the back doesn't turn off.

also reinstalled XP and Ubuntu, i finally have full support for my hardware in Ubuntu, graphics look amazing, windows is much more responsive now as well.

the new optical drive is also shorter, and gives a lot more breathing room to the case, it's nearly flush with the end of the drive cage. the inside of the case feels much roomier than it was, and much more complete, with the card reader and front panel audio now working. I'm also glad that the Scythe Ninja still fits, when i first got the P45 board i looked at it, and saw right away that the socket was closer to the edge than my old P965 board, which was a close call anyway. Luckily it all fits perfectly.

and considering everything i'm running now, aside from the chipset and graphics card (which weren't out at the time) this is the exact setup i wanted to have when i built this computer for the first time.

and with a spare drive running vista, my experience score is a 5.3, lowest being the hard drive at 5.3 (80gb WD SATA-II) , and the CPU being 5.5, all other scores happily at 5.9

I must say the inside of your case is super clean and clutterfree! Quite awesome! My case insides are another matter with all the wires lol.

Anyway my machine is in my sig as below but it is getting a bit of upgrade from the 8800 Ultras to GTX 285 SSCs so that should be interesting. They should be here in the next few days. Cant wait!

Rig now running a Q6600 with 8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 @ 1066 MHz, 2 x 320GB SATA2 Western Digitals, some crappy LG DVD-RW (ain't using it much) on a DFI Lanparty BI P45 T2RS Elite, powered by a Thermaltake 470W PSU with active PFC inside a Raidmax Ninja Black case, cooled by an Alphacool liquid circuit. Using Vista Busines x64 and 7 x64 dual-boot (each OS on its own HDD, selected from BIOS).

Wow, that video card bends a lot under the load of the cooling system, I would do something to support the card better.

Thanks for pointing out, didn't notice when i installed it... Fixed now, it was bending down because of the pipe coming from the CPU. shortened it and now it's ok :)

I know its hard to make out, but the two labels on the front say "UNCLE SOCKS" and "CHINESE WARLORD" respectively. This server was named after a background randomly placed on all the image servers. This one got characters from this series:

http://www.gallimauphry.com/clarence/clarence.html

I can't remember all of them, but one was called "moocow" and had an up close shot of a cow's mouth licking a camera.

I'm doing an internship at a software development company, so here's the specs on my work machine:

Dell Dimension 5150

Intel Pentium D Dual Core 2.8 GHz

1 GB DDR2 RAM

ATI Radeon Xpress 3150 (?)

It has dual displays (not dells), a 20" DVI SXGA and a 19" VGA SXGA, and a Microsoft IntelliMouse

Not super-speedy, but works pretty well, and I love having dual displays :D

Cleaned up the cabling completely this time. Looks way better than the first system that was inside it.

Hi there hardware people! I wanted to post the specs (and soon pictures) of my Shuttle SS59G LAN-BOX! It was built for, you guessed it, LAN parties and gaming/general use in the bedroom.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 630 3.0GHz (2MB L2 Cache model, runs OK but wanna upgrade to a 3.2 or 3.4GHz model for a small boost)

Cooling: Shuttle I.C.E. 92mm with a Zalman ZM-F2BL 92mm blue LED fan. I'm going to get another one of these Zalman fans soon to screw onto the back of the case for a push/pull configuration so that none of the hot air goes back into the system once it has gone through the I.C.E. heatsink. I will also get a front 3.5inch fan controller than can take more than two fans and is silver to replace the black one that can only take two fans.

Motherboard: Propriety Shuttle board with a socket 775/AGP/DDR SIS 661FX chipset

RAM: Kingston Value RAM 2x512MB DDR 400Mhz Dual Channel (gonna upgrade to 2x1GB RAM in the next two weeks so don't worry bout my low amount of RAM at present!)

Hard Drive: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB (wanted lots of storage cause the shuttle case only holds two 3.5inch drives and one of them is taken up with my fan controller)

Graphics Card: HIS ATI Radeon x1950PRO 256MB (did the job at first with the 1024x768 res it currently is on but its going with a bigger 19 or 20inch soon so I'm getting a Powercolor Radeon HD 4670 1GB with a Zalman VNF100 cooler...pretty much the fastest AGP card you can buy!)

Sound Card: Integrated AC97 (would think about a cheap new sound card but really I wouldn't tell the difference much and the only PCI slot is going to be taken up by the Zalman GPU cooler soon)

Optical Drive: Some cheapo DVD drive which is only used for OS and games installing then I take it out to save weight (yes, weight) and make the front panel look nicer

Case: Shuttle "G" chassis

Power Supply: Shuttle PC40 250W with two Sythe Mini-Kaze Ultra 40mm fans (these little 1U power supplies are very tough little things and a 250W model can run a modern system like the other, more powerful, PC in my sig fine!)

Monitor: LOL...17inch CRT monitor made by IBM about 10 years ago... :P Gonna upgrade to an LCD like my main system soon!

Keyboard/Mouse: Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600/Basic Logitech mouse (being replaced with a Logitech G5 along with the other upgrades)

Speakers: Hey, I don't need speakers. I have some headphones I got for free!

Operating System: Windows XP Pro SP3 heavily nLited. Might consider Windows 7 some time in 2010, wouldn't be too bad at all with the DX10 GPU and the 2GB RAM when I get them.

Pictures will be up in about two weeks when I get the new RAM/GPU/GPU cooler/extra CPU fan/mouse!

Sorry if this has speeeeling mistakes in it, it is 11.45PM right now on the 31st of December. Happy New Year! :D

EDIT: I cut the rear fan grille out today with my trusty dremel and temps dropped by a few degrees. It doesn't look clean, but when I get the other fan screwed to the back you won't be able to see the sharp edges of the cut.

EDIT2: I have got the new RAM in, but the GPU cooler is still on the way. Have mounted a fan on the outside of the case and also got the G5. I did try using the GPU just without the case on so it fit but for some reason the latest drivers did not install at all and the drivers on the disk caused a loop of reboots. So I'm going to stick with the x1950 until I get the GPU cooler to make it go in the shuttle permanently, then I will reformat and start over.
