    HOLY SPOTLESS BATMAN!!! That is a beautiful set up Markot! Who makes the speakers? Love the Yamaha integrated. Love that rug too!. Everything ties in nicely. What is that chrome cylindrical thing on the floor near the left speaker stand?

    Thank you. It's still a work in progress. Speakers are Monitor Audio MR2s.
    Haha, that thing is a door stopper, to prevent doors from hitting the wall.

    Here's that other end of the spectrum. My kid's computer which we were working on last night. After verfying operation on air cooling, (first picture) we're getting him outfitted with water cooling. (bottom picture) Spent yesterday evening with the heat gun bending the PETG pipes he's using.

    Yes, I recall having it and another aged in Bourbon barrels. What I also liked was one of the Jameson Irish Whiskey types doing just the opposite. They aged their whiskey in beer barrels! Super smooth!

    You might want to look into the Asus A4110 all in one, replace the HDD (hard drive with spinning disks) with an SSD (solid state drive) and it will be completely Fanless, and tough as nails to boot *laughs* I'm going with one for my new digital Rig.

    I believe he's got that already:

    Hard Drive: PNY 256Gb Solid State Drive

    Not the prettiest or most modern, but it does the job nicely. 8gb ram, i5 2500k cpu, GTX970 gpu, 250gp SSD boot drive and 1TB storage drive.

    It's pretty much a glorified game console and internet browser at this point.

    And SSD is just a must now. I stuck one in mine 18 months ago and it feels like a new machine, and I built this thing 6 years ago now.

    You don't realise how right you are haha, I had to bend the frame of the case a little bit to get the GPU in! Next time I upgrade I'll actually need to get a bigger case at this rate.

    Okay, got the tubing bent, system filled with coolant and up and running. Looks good except I think the reservoir deserves it's own LED or two for illumination,

    CPU: Intel Core i7-7700k overclocked

    GPU: Aorus GTX 1080Ti Xtreme Edition overclocked

    RAM: G.skill TridentZ RGB 32Gb 3600MHz

    CASE: Thermaltake Core P5 Tempered Glass Snow Edition


    A repeat pic of the air cooling setup, and then the changeover to the liquid cooling.

    Ohighway, that rig is just beyond words!! What gear plays back the audio and displays the video?

    Oh...... ha.... That rig doesn't play through any audio gear. That's my kid's system, the one I mentioned as being at the opposite end of the spectrum from my little silent computer mentioned in posts 616, 619, and 623. His is pure gaming. No speakers , but triple 24" monitors....

    I do have a few systems around. My main computer system is an older AMD X4-975 based setup and it plays through a little Lepai amp, Yamaha 10" subwoofer, and some Spherex omnidirectinal speakers. (made by the same parent company who makes Energy and Mirage speakers)

    My little silent rig plays through a Monsoon subwoofer / planar satellite system.

    I have a computer set up with the big TV in the family room. It's another AMD X4-975 based system that I recently repackaged into a Silverstone case that looks to be a stereo component. It's about the same size and shape as a home theatre receiver. It plays through a Kenwood HT receiver through some EV Interface C speakers.

    Also have another repackage, the bedroom system....... it's a AMD A6-6400k APU system that I put in a different Silverstone case, plays through a Yamaha integrated amp into Dynaco A-25. Display is a flat panel 32" tv mounted on the ceiling.

    I'll try and scrounge up a few pictures.

    EDIT: Oh and for my main listening system I connect to my laptop. Pretty crude setup for now but it will improve in the future.............

    You Sons set up sounds like my sons, with the triple monitors and a gigantic Cool Master case. I have told him that he could squeeze a small block Chevy engine into that case! I also have two of the Silverstone AV type cases. They look great with terrific build quality but they run out of room quickly.

    Our kids as gamers don't know what they are missing. Mine has a decent sounding amplified surround system with sub, but it's one of those modern, prepackaged things, plus a couple sets of headphones. In a way I'm glad he doesn't have a big JBL / Crown system assaulting the neighborhood with immense DBs, and that's coming from someone who plays amplified drums!! In the pic, you can see one of my two Silverstone cases:

    I realize a bit of redundancy with the two DACs. I use the AE D1 as volume control, and DAC for the AE speakers. The HiFiMAN provides volume control and DAC for the Grado's.

    I've got this 80's Aiwa bookshelf set (TX-110 and MX-90) pushing a pair of Polk satellite speakers. Still on the look out for a TX-90 tape deck to complete the set.

    Today's set up. Swapped a Grant Fidelity dac for a Mcintosh d100 a while back. Yesterday I swapped a Proton d1200 for my mc2255. The ADS 1530's are still here and probably always will be

    At one time, I had twp Proton D1200s in mono in my system, as I used to sell Proton. Went to insert a photo of the four meters, but I guess Photobucket is down...
