Default Re: Post Your Rig 2012 Edition

My rig which has gone unchanged since 2010. Its a bit of a hodgepodge all around. The motherboard i got second hand from DDoc a few years ago, as well as the cpu and ram. The case and psu were new in 07, as with all of the fans. The cpu cooler was brought in 2010 as well as the dvd drive, OS and graphics card. I used to attempt to wire manage but that fell by the wayside. The hard drive was new in 09, haven't had any issues yet.



I can explain the dynamat and duct tape fan. I have an extreme sensitivity to sound and in 07 i wanted to make my PC as quiet as possible and suspending the fan and damping materials helped. Although my ears are no longer extremely sensitive (i still have my issues problems with sound) I haven't seen any reason to remove the dynamat.

The desk, chair and crt monitor are all second hand. The desk looks more bowed then it is in RL. Together they were $50. Keyboard and mouse are in sig, 360 controller and logitech ps2 controller also pictured.

I LOVE IT!!!

True story- my Dad's old '70 Chevy C-10 was rusting out along the top of the windshield- it got very bad, to the point you could actually see through it out side and when it rained you'd get drenched.

Well, the truck was kind of a cloud-white color, so he got some white duct tape and went to town. Miraculously it didn't leak the rest of the time he owned it.

The duct abides.

Ok, so the duct tape in my "rig" is silver. My next upgrade should be black duct tape.
