Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC.  Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making.  Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline.  Cant wait to see what you guys are running!  

I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway.

CPU: i7-3930k @4.0Ghz (6 Cores)
Mobo: ASRock Extreme9 x79 eATX
GPU: GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4G
RAM: ADATA 32GB DDR3 1600Mhz (overkill af)
Case: Corsair 450D
Storage: 2x 240GB Intel SSD (RAID 1), 1x Crucial 960GB SSD, 1TB WD Velociraptor 
Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
PSU: Corsair AX1200 (overkill af)

Yes I know it's overkill (RAM+PSU), and ugly, but I got a LOT of parts on sale for good prices and I much prefer functionality over looks.  Probably within the next two or so years I'll be upgrading and will care more about looks.  Bet I'll smoke anyone with VM performance who's non-X99, though (which is important to me).

If mine is DRAKE, yours is ORIGIN for sure.

Imagine the shitstorm of awesome if CIG got a good case manufacturer to make some cases that are inspired by in-game ship manufacturers...

... I'd probably go for the MISC version :lol:

 

Anyway, here's my build, which is partially made from leftovers from an older 2011 build... and this rig has seen many LAN parties over the years.  To this day, my rig is the smallest and lightest one in our LAN group that can play SC:

rig.jpg

This is an older picture, which used to have 2 x 4 GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws

Case - Silverstone Sugo SG09 + Sugo bag for LAN parties (more info about the bag)

Mobo- Gigabyte G1 Sniper M3 

PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower XT 875W

CPU - Intel i7 3770K, Thermaltake SpinQ CPU cooler

RAM - 2 x 8GB DDR3

GPU - MSI ATI Radeon 6970 2GB Twin Frozr

SSD - 256GB Samsung

HDD - 3TB WD 

Monitor - Currently using a leftover sub-HD monitor

Believe it or not, my rig can play SC rather well despite the GPU, using with the lowest settings and reduced resolution of course... I get almost 50 fps offline and about 30 fps online/PU:

ScreenShot0054.jpg

Performance was noticeably improved when I doubled the RAM.  At the moment, I'm saving up for a new GPU... I'll probably get it in a year or two or by the time we get to late 3.x or 4.0, whichever comes first :lol:.

What a crazy cpu cooler!  Is that a micro atx mobo?

Are those cables from cablemod or did you do those yourself?  Love the clear pump fluid, you don't see that often.  Very MISC like since we are comparing builds with Ship manufacturers.  Excellent build btw !

Yes.  The case can accommodate large CPU coolers as well as SLI.  Another aspect that I really like in this case is the cooling, it has 6 fans, 3 of those fans are next to the GPU (2 x 80 mm and 1 x 120 mm), which come in really handy during the long gaming sessions.

But I have to add that this case has some disadvantages:

- The build could take a long time to finish due to the unusual layout.

- If you don't buy the short power/sata cables from Silverstone, you're gonna have a bad time.  Its doable, but its difficult to use full-length cables in this case without making a mess.

- As you can see in the pictures, it uses a slot-loading optical drive.  This isn't a big deal for me because I don't use optical drives that much... and I use USB optical drives when I need one.

Here are a couple of extra pictures, the second one has a 4-port USB hub next to the case for scale:

Thanks for the compliment!  The cables are Corsair individually sleeved cables from Corsair.  I looked around the net for options and decided to go with Corsair since they actually made the special 24pin Type 4 Gen 2 that matched the PSU, since it has a special connection.  The EKWB kit keeps it running cool since the radiator is such a beast and the whole system is whisper quiet compared to my old air cooled i7 920 build.

This is a great video thanks for sharing the setup!  You have so much hardware to manage, crazy.  I am a subscriber to your channel and I never knew you were an Imperium member, what the hell?!  Then again I've been gone for so long it's not surprising. Love your vids and keep them coming comrade.

He's not an Imperium member.  He's a member of the best Star Citizen community though: SCB!

Speaking of ancient screens, this is how Crysis 3 looks like on a Sony Trinitron TV (70s model):

I wonder how Star Citizen would look like on that monitor xD

Yeah, hopefully no confusion, I was invited to participate in the Base but I am not a member of Imperium. I am part of org ID 0000000

O7 to you and I am happy that you are happy with the content I produce.

      Cool setup I saw on a Facebook ad, minus the light/mic.

      I get these notifications in the email - lots of great deals to be found for RAM, SSDs, etc
      Newegg and Microcenter, sometimes PNY, mostly Newegg, though, 
      really! get moar stuff, NO REALLY!!
       
      buy buy buy!! good deals on SSDs, DDR4 RAM, next gen Intel CPUs
      And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker
      If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance 
      just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)

      I have a setup running a GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 XTREME 8G Graphics Card.  
      Downloaded a fresh install of Star Citizen and jumped into game.  On the highest settings the card is reading 100% utilization at all times.  Is this normal still?  Would have thought it would handle it a little better for the cost.

      My old build was passed down and time for a new one, parts get here Thursday to start assembling.
      CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz
      CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series, H150i PRO RGB, 360mm
      Motherboard: ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate LGA 1151

      Extra Fans: Corsair HD Series, HD120 RGB LED, 120mm
       
      I'd like to get more in depth with overclocking this one.  Assuming it will stay more than cool enough to push it some.
      Anyone have experience with this type of mobo's settings to give some suggestions?
