Nice Case,
Are those orange LEDS added in? Also is that the Asus 8Z77v-lk Mobo?

Thanks, it's one red cold cathode light leftover from an older gaming rig, and it is the Asus P8Z77-V. The one that's 189.99 at Amazon. It's not the deluxe or extreme model.

Thats what I thought, it looked close to mine, I have the p8z77v-lk....
I have no clue what the difference is with the LK and what you have is.

have you had any issues with yours? I had a bad SATA port and it wouldn't let me overclock.... I sent it in to ASUS and after three weeks I got a brand new one free of charge and it works perfect now.

very cool case! I was thought about getting that one but I decided on the Corsair 300R instead... My original Case is really crappy... I made the mistake of trying to save a couple bux but it ended up costing me more in the end

Yes, it never pays to cheap out on the case or power supply, it will bite you in the end.

So far so good, all the ports seem to be working fine. I haven't messed with overclocking yet, I want to give it a couple of weeks to make sure there are no issues. Lightroom and Photoshop seem to be blazing fast though! :cool:

:rolleyes:
Yeah, dealing with that by my co-workers right now... I went with a Elite 430 case and it looks STUFFED with 3 HDD and 2 Optical Drives and soon to have a GTX 560.

I been shopping around for a monster case now to compensate that decision. Been hearing the co-workers "i told you so" for a week now. *sigh*

Your rig will blow my rig away ...

Caselabs.net Hands down best cases in market.

The overall cost based on retail pricing ...$4000+.

Luckily many parts were sponsored or free. It also helps to be in the pc business.

Snapped a pic of the latest iteration of my rig last night. Going to be selling some parts and moving to a ITX or mATX factor.

Nice. I was thinking about a Corsair 650D... I was also looking at that CPU cooler.. I like this setup. I might copy your ideas on this when i decide on buying my new case

Get the raystorm, slightly better cooling and pretty much the same price. I have pushed that CPU pretty hard and temps always stay reasonable.

Here are the specs on a desktop I built a couple of months ago specifically for photo processing (mostly LR).
The criteria I used for choosing components was to:


  1. Maximize I/O throughput (esp. for downloading memory cards to disk, and moving files around between disks)
  2. Raw CPU horsepower (LR doesn't have any GPU speedups)
The MOBO has lots of USB-3 and 6 GB/s SATA ports. I use the USB-3 for connecting my Lexar card-reader, and for dumping files from the external USB-3 drives I take with me when I'm shooting multiple days away from home.

I "short stroked" the internal 1 TB drive into a 200 GB partition for the OS and other files I want high data-transfer rates (ex. the LR catalog). The rest of the drive (the tracks nearer the center) are a second "slow" partition that I use for working space. There are almost always a couple of 1 TB drives in the docking-bays that I use for image storage and backups. I may add a SSD (mostly for the LR catalog) in the future.

There is no internal optical-disk. I have an external USB drive I can boot from and load software on the rare occasions that I need it.

No overclocking. The big case with lots of fans and the CPU cooler is just to improve reliability. The Sandy Bridge processors have a very high Tj and they tend to run hotter than I liked with the stock cooler (although well below the Tj limit). I also like to keep my disk temperatures near 35C (95F).

Everything but the CPU and SATA bays came from NewEgg (great folks to deal with - highly recommended). The only reason I didn't get the CPU from them was that I built the system when the 3770K was in short supply and another supplier had one in stock.

Pieces and parts:
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
  • Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
  • Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition ATX Full Tower
  • PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V PLUS BRONZE
  • CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
  • Thermal Paste: ARCTIC COOLING Arctic Cooling MX-4
  • Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
  • Disk: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
  • External SATA Bays: KingWin Multi-Bay Internal Rack with 3 Drives (KF-3001-BK) and ICY DOCK MB671SK-BB single-drive bay.
  • Monitor: HP ZR24w 24" IPS Monitor
  • OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

I just built this system from used parts after my old M/B died. By combining my old components that were still compatible, and some bargain hunting the upgrade cost me around $400!

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K
Memory: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws
M/B: Asus Sabertooth P67
Video card: Sapphire Radeon 4870 (512MB)
Sound card: Soundblaster Audigy2
SSD: OCZ Vertex 120GB

I have a 2x 1TB and 1x 2TB internal hard drives. I have 3x 1TB and 3x 2TB external drives. I do mostly audio processing, photos and some video. I always intend to do some gaming, but have little time to do so.

My displays are a 1920x1080 and 1680x1050 cheapo monitors.

I built this system with the intent of making a Hackintosh, so I run Mac OS X 10.6.8 (haven't had a chance to do the upgrade to ML yet), and Windows 7, booting into a separate hard drive. I run OS X the majority of the time.

YP5,

What is the brand of the internal enclosure (RAID backplane?) that houses the SSD's? I am looking for one that is solid and trouble-free.
