Show us your rig!
Remind me to take a picture of my work PC :trollface: It's abysmal.
Edit: Whoa, looks like I already did... and nothing in that PC has changed. I think it's time to buy more hardware... and maybe a better case
@baris send me that MSI card
I use a mini-itx, so there's not much to see.
Here ya go

No window, so the inside is not really cleaned often.. GPU is right now really underpowered and next on my to upgrade list.
Here's the full partlist with the price at time of purchase:
Giving this a bump (will add a pic later):
Mainboard: HUANAN Deluxe X79
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2680v2 @ 3GHz (BCLK OC)
Cooling: Noctua NH-U14S
RAM: 32GB Hynix RECC DDR3 @ 1600MHz
GPU: 8GB GDDR5 Gainward GTX 1080 OC
HDD 1: 2TB WD Black HDD
HDD 2: 500GB Samsung EVO 850
PSU: beQuiet Pure Power 10 CM 700W
Case: Corsair Carbide 270R
The Xeon is a 10 core CPU with up to 20 threads.
As promised, some pics:
If you want I can take of the side cover and do some additional pics tomorrow.
And before you ask for the price - its been quite cheap. Cheaper than any DDR4 based system.
Especially if you consider benchmark scores (when I bought the CPU a few weeks ago it was ranked 54th with over 16K points). Working with the system is fabulous, especially when you use Photoshop or AE. Games run smooth at highest settings and barely seems to be a workload for the CPU. With BF1 at its absolute maximum settings the CPU went to 21% load. The Huanan X79 does a great job as well. It held 48h @ 100% load without any issues.
To overclock the CPU and RAM though you have to flash a custom BIOS.
@aokp Sweet, post some pictures. I am waiting for the Ryzen refresh I might build a new computer in 2018.
@baris still cheaper than any Ryzen 7 based system. I got all the parts new, except the CPU and RAM. However, they are both from Germany and therefore covered by a warranty.
The mainboard has been imported from China (hard to get proper LGA2011 boards) and is covered by Allianz insurance for a year.
I paid overall 1496€. This does not include the HDD as I owned it previously. If you decide to get the CPU from China without Express shipping nor a insurance its around 100€ cheaper.
Beat @baris to the punch with my new Ryzen build
Due to logistic errors motherboard is stuck at NodeBB headquarters so no build tonight.
Build is complete
Some cool PC's here.
Mine is like 5 years old now and due an upgrade.
Oh, it's been awhile since I changed my setup (since my daily driver is a Dell XPS ) but recently I purchased a Raspberry Pi 4 for use as a home theater thin-client:
Case acts as heatsink
How's that for cabling? NO CABLES
@julian This could be pretty cool. I've been tossin' about similar ideas myself. Have fun and keep us posted, eh?
P.S.: Spare parts... https://img.vim-cn.com/c0/1a3164e3031bf657fd9dc8bde09431a8e1f961.jpg
Only limiting factor is the crappy powerline ethernet adapter I have.
