Whats your Rig look like...?

Looking for some ideas and was interested to see what you lot have done to your rigs.
This is what mine looks like right now but I am looking at getting the EVGA DG87 case soon as I think it looks awesome and then get a custom loop going

Does look better in person tho :P

Small and clean smallest case I've ever had and since the PSU is behind the mobo, it's incredibly...incredibly clean.

My FX8320, sabertooth 990FX r2.0 is still stock. But it is sitting in a 2008 vintage full tower Rocketfish Lian Li case with a Swiftech triple 120mm rad, mcp655 pump, & Apogee XL block cooling the CPU. The case is has no window & is so big that wire management isn't really needed. lol I did drill holes in the mobo tray for wire routing and added air cooling to the back of the socket and MOSFETS. It should OC pretty well, we'll see. I can post pics if you have any interest.

I plan to overclock my FX8320 too, but I hate loosing folding@home points testing an overclock. I plan to use the thread between you & Mr Scott as a bit of a guide. The last AMD I owned was a super socket 7 450mhz, so I'm pretty clueless on working with the newer models.

I think your current box looks nice, but a custom loop would be a nice change over your current AIO.

To be honest o have the cooler master cosmos se and it's a terribly designed case, but yes custom loop will be happening as soon as I can afford it. If you have any questions about overclocking then ask away as I have the exact same board and similar chip so if I can help I will ����
Also yes I would love to see some photos.

Ok so update my mrs let me buy the case and a Thermaltake Pacific RL240 D5 Hard Tube Water Cooling Kit, now I know this is not a custom loop but i'm hoping it will start me off for the future

Any advice for the mess of cables on the left side of the pic?

You don't need anything. That's clean as a whistle.

Flattery will get you nowhere sir! I just gotta figure out what cpu/ram/mobo combo I want to upgrade to before I pick up the fancy cables.
I've had that AX750 for over half a decade now, its time to migrate it to my HTPC so I reduce main rig parts failure (I'm a worry wart, overly cautious, and have a discretionary budget ).

That bites, I tend to flip flop between AIO and custom loops and I'm determined not to eff with an expensive loop again .
I bought my case around 2 primary aspects quietness and ability to have multiple AIO radiator options, I can do a top, bottom or front mount with the 280mm, and a potential 120/140mm on the rear.
It took me 6 weeks of digging around before I finally pulled the trigger on one I really saw myself keeping for a while.
Thats my other bad habit, changing cases every few years when I size up/down those loops.
I can't hear the thing at all, my FS/HTPC's noisy *** in my closet is probably gonna be next now though I can hear it roaring away with my main rig dampened down (**** those 80mm fans).

Probably worst of thread bit it's mine. Very nice looking stuff here.

I'm still using an old video card and SSD. Better ones are next on the list. The 32 inch TV is getting old too. When I bought it it was one of the few that small I could find that was 1080p. An upgrade to a 40 inch 4k is due soon. I need save more money for them though. The HSF is the oldest piece in there. I should refinish my desk too.
