okay i took a couple pics, excuse the jpeg, and the fact that my organization is shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. i have a CPU cooler to install at some point, so i might actually organize this shit when i upgrade to an i7 eventually. anyway here she is normally:



and when she's feelin' naughty



so yeah it's a fuckin mess lmao, but here's whats in it

gpu: msi superclocked nvidia gtx 1070
psu: roswell 600w
mobo: MSI Z87 MPOWER
cpu: intel i5 4690k, 3.50 ghz
RAM: two 8GB sticks of kingston ddr3
also have two 1 TB HDDs internal, one 5 TB external, and a shitty dvd-rw drive i ripped out of my old computer

it gets the job done i guess lol

because of this big case, looks tidy and clean

window + LED = COOL


ty icandy giggle; giggle;

also there actually aren't any leds built into the case, i temporarily illuminated it with an led flashlight for purely photogenic reasons (otherwise the window is too reflective to get a clear shot of the inside)

and the window itself is of pretty much no use to me anyway as the tower's permanent spot is an inch to the right of my desk lol sillydood;

i pulled it out again just to take that picture

[spoiler=also, i was curious]



looks pretty neat but oh boyo would that be insanely distracting at night lol, and i'm sure the novelty would wear of pretty quickly

so no leds for me [/spoiler]

lmao
good place to hide shit now

don't let's

T...turning off a PC? befuddlement

it'd still be an issue if i were playing a game or a movie or smth at night, or if for some reason i found myself needing to keep my pc on overnight, unless i could find case leds with easily accessible external controls

but really i'm just not interested enough in having an illuminated case to justify the extra expense lol, in order to even appreciate them i'd have to move the entire tower to some inconvenient location
yeah my case has a window and both the fans it came with have blue leds on them, but what gets really annoying is the front led, especially when I put it in sleep mode and it flashes.


yeah, the extra hassle of leds (even if it only amounts to fllipping an extra switch at night) sounds like it would quickly outweigh the two days' worth of novelty they would provide

once i throw a gpu in there it'll double as a competent oven, all that extra space will make broiling salmon very convenient

mine's on the floor too but i put a spare shelf board underneath it so at least it isn't sitting directly on carpet lol

also how's that 1070 treating you

i'm almost tempted to go $150 overbudget for that thing

god i hope the aftermarket 480s don't disappoint lol

hah, i guess that's a fair statement. i've had this damn thing for like 7 years now and it works, it's just got too much extra shit and i don't feel like spending the extra like 100 bucks to go modular.

real niiiiiiice. it's quiet as can be (at least compared to my old jet engine 660ti), and so far it's run everything i've thrown at it flawlessly. still havent fucked around with it too much tho lol ive been busy but i did play through all of doom and it was beautiful
