@WhiteNoise you sure like your RGB bling.

I like to keep my simple looking most of the time....I do have some blingy profiles saved for showing off. Softer white theme is nicer at night.

@Kenmitch First computer with all the RGB and though I was never a big fan when it first became popular, I have to admit, its grown on me and if done right looks pretty cool. I suppose I wanted a change too. I dig it. Like you said though, "profiles". I have several and I too have a night profile. The one above is my Rainbow puke profile.

It does kind of grow on you. I like the simple look myself, but am working on some more flashy profiles. I finally got around to redoing the memory profile. I wanted it to match the RX on the 6800. Still needs a little work, but it's close enough for now. It's a much closer match in real life, trying to photo the rgb is challenging!

Lol, I noticed this last night when I looked inside to see what I needed to do to swap a 1TB SSD for a 2TB NVMe.
Would you mind telling me where you got those right angle power cable adapters? I have a tight situation going on with my current build...

Sweet!

The first link is what will work for me. Thank you very much.

No problem and you're welcome. You'll need to buy 2 to get a pair of the ones you need, as the packages come with one of each possible plug orientation.

Nice rig. Way too nice to put on the floor dude. Really defeats the purpose hiding it like that.
Thank you. :)
But it stands in the living room so I have to compromise a bit.
I really want a very furniture looking feeling, why aren't cases made to look more like wooden cabinets or something? 🙂

I've actually hidden the case away more since that pic! Main selling point is sleek looking and room for 4 easily interchangeable 3,5s. That's not an easy task today. In mesh-compact-rgb hell... 😉

Wow, these Lian-Li O11 Dynamic case builds look great! Hopefully I can (upgrade/downgrade) my 800D in the not too distant future.

I apologize for the format of the image. The tower is actually lying on it's side under a roof overhang.
My laptop got knocked off the table during the build and won't post, so that should be interesting.
Somehow after 3 days it has dust.....

Here is what I have. I'll change the video card at some point but have an older one right now.

It's a 77" OLED TV and offers the best PC gaming experience in my view. I move the desk closer or further depending on what I'm doing.

Nice! But looks like your top fan is pulling air inside the case! :)

Fixed the fan, added right angle plugs, an aluminum pillar to stabilize the chonky video card, and a new 3090 video card!

Moved my outdated 3080 to my son's computer, replacing a GTX 1080 :)

Pretty sure I posted a picture of my case here, but anyway, I guess I removed it. After years of regular, long, sleeved cables, I got a custom length set done by Cablemod in alternating grey, white, black. Saves a lot effort managing cables.

My first hardline build, second PC build in 10 years, but my job is Apple Repair/Consulting/Management, so every day I tear into hardware, even after work.
Used for Davinci Resolve, WebODM 3d Drone mapping, Plex, RetroArch VM w Parsec for local and remote gaming with friends/family, Steam VM with Parsec for more game sharing (I don't game much myself), VPN in for files, VMs for the BMW community (they shut down newtis.info !), cloud syncing with Amazon S3, Syncthing. Just stuff, and enough cores that many can remote in and get what they need whether it be files, movies or games.
Specs:
Fractal Define 7 Case
Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero X570
5950X AMD AM4 (EKWB Quantum Velocity CPU Waterblock
Nvidia 3090 FE (EKWB Waterblock, waiting for the active backplate)
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB Boot Drive
Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB Working Files/cache
3x Samsung 970 Evo/Plus 500 GB SSDs Raid 0 for Games (I do unfortunately partake from time to time)
6x10TB Seagate Exos X10 HDDs in Raid 10 (~27TB usable storage) via RocketRaid 3720a HBA (This is backed up on Backblaze and locally as well $$$)
EKWB 360 PE Front Radiator (Should have used another HWLabs 360GTS instead)
Hardware Labs 360 GTS top radiator (really does not fit, but I made it work, it's too wide for the case storage config)
EKWB Quantum Kinetic 200mm D5 Pump
10mm ID / 12mm OD PETG tubing with inserts to relieve deforming, Bitspower and Barrow fittings (meant to use only barrow due to the 3 orings, but got confused while ordering)
