The Hardware Thread
on: Feb 25, 02:26 pm

Alright guys, we have hardware discussion going on in a couple different threads and 4 hardware threads on the front page. Lets move all hardware discussion to this thread. I do not have a merge button or I would bring the other threads here. (Maybe Alex can)

So to start the definitive hardware thread I present pics of my new build.

Seven fans and liquid cooled Hot Rod. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

I need to get the OS installed then it should be good to go.

Then it will be on to messing with the rest of the setup.

Get your hardware pics in this thread!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

That thing is ridiculously huge, lol.

I'm not even going to mess with it for tomorrow's race.

I hope to have everything setup by this weekend. I may want to even get my official in Thursday night again so I have more time to get used to the 3 screens before putting in a race with them.

Tower is finally ready and up to date.

I need to download all the necessary stuff then I will be messing with my screens.

That pic is awesome Randy and makes me want to ditch my chores and just work on my rig.

Nice set up Randy! So jealous.

If you don't go for it at every corner of every lap, what's the point?!

Looks like mine does so I approve ๐Ÿ˜ฎ . When Teamspeak is in use I have the overlay on the 4th screen.

I do have a problem with the monitors reconfiguring themselves if I alt-tab out of the game. I can't remember (at work) if it happens when the game I closed properly.

27's are big enough for me Scott. I am still young, remember when your eyesight was still good....probably not

"You guys should come iRacing" mentions Alex.

"That would be cool, I think I will" replies Randy

"Jeremy, you should come iRacing too" says Alex and Randy

"How much will it cost and I don't know anything about pc gaming" I respond.

"Oh, just use what you got, all you need is a decent tower" Randy says.

"That system will do you fine" Alex assures me.

"Did I mention you can really pimp out your setup with lots of goodies in iRacing" Alex casually brings up.

"I think I will pimp my rig, can't golf anyways right now" Randy replies.

"Hey look at this cool thing I got" as Alex is fascinated by his new wheel.

"Aww man these screen are totally rockin, eh" as Randy comes to the bottom of glass of rye.(I can hear the cubes in the glass jerk)

"Hey, look at all our cool stuff" they proclaim as they join one by one.

"Where is your cool stuff?" I think to myself.

"You should get some stuff. But thats alot off cash to race pixels. You should do something more productive with your time. But I like racing and hanging out with the guys. But they have all the cool toys and I dont."..............pondering..............

"Screw it, I'm getting stuff"

This is all of your fault. All of you. Especially Alex and Randy.

I'm going to be really upset when I get it all set up. ๐Ÿ˜ก

And yes, Scot is old. ๐Ÿ˜‰

That is very sweet, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

Totally unrelated btw, do you have a 4k monitor? Mine will be here on Friday.

27" inch? I decided to go 39" 4k. And yes I am old and blind. But I will have a 4k monitor and that will make me not care.

For a little while longer.

Hmm longevity through consumerism... see so actually I am helping you all live longer.

You're welcome.

I just laughed pretty hard reading those two posts, so I went on amazon and bought 3 42" 4k monitors. ๐Ÿ™‚

And thank you again Alex.

Oh my....LOL I was die'n laughing at this!!!

You guys are fricking killing me! I need stuff too!

I'm just not feeling the G 27....sorry, but I may have to move up to the big Kahona...CSW!

I would love to have bigger monitors, but I will be getting the OR when that comes out.

I am planning on building a new sim rig when the weather breaks as well.

If any of you need somewhere to put all your extra money....feel free to contact me.
