  • Simulator Rig, Name my rig? Video added!

    At long last, Here is the PC to power the simulator! Its not quite finished yet really. It will look much better once the covers are taken off but i want it protected for the moment as its being stored, Not used just yet.
    Thanks to Aria and Steve in sales for sorting me out with the EVGA GTX680 classified, It was a special order
    Im in love with the whole setup really. The AX860i and H100i work well together with the corsair link software. I can get pretty much any system info i need without 3rd party programs. Just the one does all the fans, Temps, Colours etc.
    I was aiming for a black/red inside, The corsair logo on the H100i is set to change colour on the temp of the CPU. I have made this a narrow margin at the moment so its mainly red, I only just turned it on in the pictures so its blue.
    With the Silver 600T im a tiny bit dissapointed, Only 2 issues. The finish on the paint inside the front bezel is bad, Just lots of overspray. You can hardly see it though. Also the front panel cables need to be black or covered all the way to the plug. You can see the multi-colour wires stick out like a sore thumb. Its an easy fix for me and i might get round to it one day.

    Anyway, On with the pictures!











    Now a need a name for this setup. Any ideas? Its going to be running one of these...

          10k?

          I wish I studied more in Education!

          I definitely think you should call it T-1000

            Is the chair called "Cobra" ? Could call the rig itself Viper (as in the snale, and the car) or other similarly themed name ?


            BTW I think that rig looks epic, superb spec, tidy as anything, but if I must nit-pick (and I usually do ) it's a shame the mobo is black/blue not just black or black/red.

            Awesome stuff, and when can I have a go ?

                  That H100i looks incredible!
                  The whole thing is incredible!

                  I'm going to add that to the christmas list.

                  With the h100i in mine I can finally RMA this noisy h60

                    The seat is made by Cobra, Its model is the Evolution Pro.
                    My sim part of the setup is a 1 off as i had it painted in gunmetal Grey. Could we use that some how?

                    Yeah the blue is annoying, Can't see it too much though. The lights on the GTX680 are really bright white. No way to turn them off or down sadly I plan to put a little piece of red acetate over them and ALL will become red!

                        Can't help but be reminded of Red Dwarf's Me2...
                        LISTER: But why are they painting the color the same color it was before?
                        RIMMER: They're changing it from Ocean Gray to Military Gray. Something that should've been done a long time ago.
                        LISTER: Looks exactly the same to me.
                        RIMMER: No. No, no, no. (Points to a section of a wall.) That's the new Military Gray bit there, and that's the dowdy, old, nasty Ocean Gray bit there.
                        The Lady Grey ?
                        The Stimulator?

                        I'm not feeling very creative this evening, however thesaurus.com has the following synonyms listed for "grey"... might help someone else

                        ash,
                        ashen, battleship, cinereal, clouded, dingy, dove, drab, dusky, dusty, granite, heather, iron, lead, leaden, livid, mousy, neutral, oyster, pearly, peppery, powder, sere, shaded, silvered, silvery, slate, smoky, somber, stone

                        Ooooh, last final idea just occurred!!!
