The "Lol" Computer
Because it makes you lol.

This has been my computer for the past year and a half, few swaps here and then, but has stayed the same with the "lol" factor.

This is the last revision before I sold it off, apologies on the fuzzy cellphone pictures, what I had when doing the last maintenance and swap :whistle:

Bit of dust (slight understatement :haha:)


Clean it up and swapped in the goods,





Final Specs: (Though the dusted pictures do not reflect it)

i7 3770k @4.8ghz
32GB Kingston HyperX 1600mhz
Maximus IV GENE-Z
Gigabyte S/OC 6970 @1k mhz
Scythe Susanoo w/ NZXT 180MM 166CFM fan
SB Titanium HD
Revodrive X3 240GB
Seagate 3TB HDD
Corsair AX1200
NZXT Blue LED wire
3x Bitfenix OJ 120MM
1x CM Blademaster 92MM

Thought I would share :clap:, 2013 marks a new computer, I think I'll delve right back into watercooling.. hmm...

Thinking of some silly shenanigans, perhaps a watercooled HTPC/mATX? GTX 690? mATX LGA2011?! Let's see where it goes :haha: Thanks for viewing!

And then you noticed the revodrive. BAM insta-jelly.

are the cpu and video card cooled passively?

jibz January 2, 2013 09:05 PM

I'd say neither, the 200mm sidefan blows on that beast of a heatsink and the video card uses the stock cooler and is under.

This is my first time seeing a Scythe Susanoo on a build configuration like that, mATX case made it a glove fit. How were the temps?

i7 3770k @4.8ghz
I'd say temps were pretty good at that clock.

That heatsink o.O :shok: Never seen such a huge air cooler before.

Brian@NCIX January 4, 2013 12:00 PM

The CPU & video card have the NZXT fan blowing towards it.

I was actually gambling hoping the Susanoo would fit, fortunately it fits. It fits so tight that I would not be able to put in a bigger BD drive, it has a 1-2mm clearance with the DVD drive.

I don't remember the temperatures, but it was much lower than using the stock 4 fans (5-8c~).

This heatsink works brilliantly with a mesh side panel + fan, it won't do well at all in a front -> back flow case, you'd want a D14 in that case.
