Club for those with beastly mATX/ITX rigs. - Page 472

post #4711 of 13159
I'm back again for a rig update, I haven't got a satisfying rig since the one i posted on page2 of this thread(watercooled i7 920, HD5870 CF, rampage 2 gene, 12GB ram, dual SSD raid etc in a SG03) to a less satisfying ( zotac z68, 2500k, 8GB ram, 570GTX) that I've ditched after 6 months and never powered on since day one. Now I've took the opportunity to update 2 rigs fitting for the club.


Little teaser Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Test bench/ server 1

Intel 3470

8GB Corsair Vengence
GTX570 Gainward phantom
Seasonic X750 PSU

WD 640black cached by 60GB agility3
16x 2TB HDD in 4 Hotway raid box

This is my latest incarnation of a beastly little machine. I'm thinking about swapping the 7950 for something smaller in length like the 660ti just for the aesthetics of it. I don't like the large overhang of the card. This "case" is incredible for temps. CPU cooler is the Xigmatek Gain in push pull that I got for $20 shipped on Amazon. The last pic is my entire setup.

Er... what's 'in' the box... just PSU, HDD, and optical? Do you have everything else outside the box just cause the card doesn't fit?

That's how the case is designed. It's more like a tech station than a case really. Inside the box is my PSU, 2 SSDs, 2.5" 750GB HDD, and there is no optical drive. The motherboard is not supposed to go inside the box but rather on top just like it is.

exactly how i based my box design on too, but i fit a 3.5" hot swap, 2.5" hot swap, slim dvd and a 2.5" SSD with my PSU in the box below.

bit worried about dust though

Yea that is pretty impressive. I was actually thinking about making something like that but then stumbled on the Lian Li and decided to just get it. I lack the proper tools and the know-how to make something that would look even close to as good as the Lian Li.

This is the overhang of the GPU that I don't like ATM. I wish that AMD made the 7900's as short as the GTX 600's. Here's hoping the 8900's are a few inches shorter.

yeh i dont like my 570 overhanging as well, i'd prefer a 660ti or something similar with low noise but budget wont allow me to buy another card just for the sake of fixing the overhang. so if only i can trade my 570 for another card without losing much performance or $$ i'd leave it overhang after all that card isnt going to be permanently mounted there to save power

Well its a typical bench wrapped in a prettier package. You get the messy PSU, HDD, optical etc hidden in the enclosed bench below rather then exposed like the traditional bench and you get your easily accessed hardware on the top.

Just think your typical bench with its bottom half enclosed in pretty aluminum.
