Whats your setup like?


Recommended Posts

Interesting setup, doesn't the keyboard get in the way of the wheel?



Surprisingly not. There is a gap of about 2 - 3 inches between the wheel and keyboard which is plenty of room for me. I guess it's just something I have got used to lol!

Cheers Jeff :) lots of blood, sweat and tears went into that :P (maybe not tears, men don't cry...)


It's the Corsair Air 540, I was looking for the perfect case for sometime and I'm glad I didn't buy another one before now because I love everything about this case, the only downside is the amount of 3.5" slots for normal hard drives, it's a teeny bit louder than my previous one but with good down volt'd fan's you can hardly hear it..

I'm waiting of Georges lady to bring back her macro lens so we can take some proper photo's of it. I simply cannot wait!

Here's my other half's new CAD rig: 




It was a really easy build to put together, 10/10 for Corsair's entry level Carbide 200R case. Thanks to Kyrie for the tip to go for AMD, it kept the rig within budget and Caitlin's happy maxing out the 8 cores rendering. Even though the graphics card is for CAD, most games run maxed out too with reasonable FPS! 


Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case Black w/ USB 3.0

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P

CPU: AMD FX-8350 Black Edition (AM3+/Octa Core/4.00Ghz/16Mb/125W)

RAM: Corsair 8Gb (2x 4Gb) Dual Channel Vengeance Pro (DDR3 1600/9.0/1.5V)

Power Supply (PSU): Corsair 430W CXM Builder Modular 80 Plus Bronze PSU 3

Graphics Card (GPU): PNY Quadro K2000 2GB GDDR5 Dual-DVI 2xDisplayPorts PCI-E Graphics Card

CPU Cooler: AMD Stock

Hard Drive: (HDD) Seagate 2TB Barracuda Internal Hard Drive

CD Drive: Liteon Ihas124 24x
