Work, music recording, and a little gaming. I am a computer programmer and with this setup I'll be able to work from home instead of having to call in sick, or if roads are bad in the winter.. and I can work on projects on weekends when I have nothing else to do haha.

Then I also like do my own little home recording with my music so having a little extra computing power is nice.

I originally wanted to be able to play any game I wanted with out worrying about fps lag haha but I got a real job and don't play games quite as often anymore

Up until recently I worked for Velocity Micro, so my cable management had to be as clean as possible. :P My personal machine could be better, but I didn't have zip ties at the time and I'll too lazy to do it now lol.

The PSU is at the top back.

The only computer classes I took were programming because I went for the wrong major, but stayed with it haha. I wanted to go for the major with the classes about building pcs and all that but my high school counselor signed me up for programming instead.. haha but I enjoy what I do

I'm only taking a few computer classes right now, none of them are hardware. Networking and web design.

However, I am about to get a job with a local PC builder, so it's pretty obvious what it is that I want to do lol

I've also taken a few programming classes, but haven't done anything more than basic C++ and Java.

Since my dual core died last year or two ago, I just grabbed this little puppy to hold me over. A HP AMD64 business class machine. I dual boot Mageia 2 and Salix Linux.


Now that I have an android phone & Tablet, I haven't been too interested in a PC much. I do have an AAO netbook and Mini Mac also.

They're working on developing the Mac program, I'm part of the leading edge group.

iOS has been in our environment for a while, I have to provide support for it so they issued me the iPad so I could be familiar with it.

I've posted this in another thread before, but this is the rig I built last year with a CPU I originally bought 3 years ago but then could not get enough money together to finish the build.

im totally posting my completed(well almost) rig tomorrow. actually had a G+ hangout session of me putting it together and the director for apples CIS department showed up. i know, right... i made fun of him. anyways here is my G+ page to see some of what i worked with audioSoulja... o and tman, kinston has some decent priced SSDs for your OS to run on so you dont have to worry about your reg HDDs crashing later on ... 20K hr life expectancy compared to 1,000,000 on SSDs. set it up to where your HDD will shut off when not in use after like 3 to 5 mins and with that much ram your good to go

I'll try and post my rig later (built 2 years ago, my first build) though looking though this thread I feel I may have went overboard on the heatsink...

My rig is in a constant state of rebuilding but for cooling I went with the Antec H20 920 mainly because it was so low profile. Initially it had a problem with the clicking noise common to these liquid coolers but eventually the noise stopped. My next rebuild may be LGA 2011 but I will probably keep the cooler.

Default i5-3570k

This is my current rig it has a micro atx board because I upgraded in steps and my old case was a micro case.

Case Antec One Illusion
i5-3570k stock speed still working on voltages
Coolermaster Hyper 212+ 120mm Cooling on CPU
Asrock z77 pro 4-m mobo
Thermaltake TR2 430 watt PSU
2x4gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 ram
OCZ Vertex 90gb ssd
Western Digital Cavier Black 1tb HDD
Sapphire ATI 5830 HD (picked up for only $40 so I said "why not?") also thinking maybe I should move that down to the bottom slot.

It is a Ipex 200
Which has an intel p4 2.4 ghz that I have overclocked to 3 ghz
Ram was 512 meg but upped to 2 gig
Other than that it is basically stock but fast for it's age
Os is Windows 7 Dark with terminator and alien media player

I mainly posted shots for the post apocalyptic style paint work (everyone says it looks like it's been in a fire) even my friends

The red wire has a fuze in the centre the black wire has contact points .....it also has a heat sinc screwed to the case and it did have an oversize cooling fan ....which has since been removed

For some reason the Asus AI Suite II wont recognise my front case fan's RPM anymore? It shows in yellow text ( I assume this means it's connected) but I can still control it in Fan Xpert+

I'll upload tomorrow after school. - In low light my DHD won't take good pictures

What are some good temps for idle and load for the CPU and mobo? Wanna try out Fan Xpert+

And would the Intel integrated graphics benefit from my mobo's gpu boost features?

I just bought the i5-3570k also and put it on an Asrock z77 Pro-4M mobo. Did you buy an aftermarket cooler or are you using stock? Good idle temps are right at 30c in my opinion not more but obviously less is ok.

Standard cooler. Getting under 35 on the "silent" fan mode.

Mabye the wrong place to post this but could I remove the hard drive from my laptop and put it in my desktop? I assume SATA speeds are faster than usb 2 one way and usb 3 another...

SATA connections are standard across the board, you can use the same cables as you would a desktop drive to connect a laptop drive in a desktop.
