Finished off the new FreeNAS box. Transferred over the drives / HBA from another system. Hope it works still.

Heh.... not a pic of a current system but a blast from the past with a screenie of the system specs I was running when I started the thread and posted pics of my then current system... ( Case Pics ).

Haven't been there in ages, but successfully tried logging into the sapphire support forums today and this is what I found....

I've always wished that hardware sigs on old posts would stay static when profiles are updated to reflect new kit. Kinda cool to go back in time to see what I was running. :)

Lordie, I had a Ath64 3000 Clawhammer and the exact same mainboard and RAM back in the day. The 3700s were insanely pricey.

I still have a set of original Teem Xtreme ram ;) Don't even get me started on what that stuff was worth.

This is my HR GIGER Tribute PC. It actually started this build a few years ago, but got shelved so I could take on customer commitments, so it has a mixture of old and new hardware, what prompted me to finally get it done, was HR GIGER's Passing on May 12, 2014, and the recent mod zoo "dust-off" event. If you've never of HR GIGER, he was most well known for his Visual Effects and design work on the first Alien movie, and of course the iconic Xenomorph ALIEN, long before working on that movie, he had established career as a painter, and had a very distinctive style that blended human bodies and machines that he described as "Biomechanical" ...which inspired the look of this PC..... the hardware as I said, is combination of old and new... the chassis is a Cooler Master 912 turned 90 degrees, and it's been 3 years since the asus sabertooth TUF shield was airbrushed with the Giger theme, the system has two seperate liquid loops, the stainless tube reservoir is for the GPU loop, and has Hardware Labs Black Ice 360 GTX, cooled with Panaflo L1As, these are 38mm thick, 68.9 CFM. Max. noise: 30.0 dB-A, the grill is from Mnpctech.com, with D5 pump and Alphacool top, the CPU is 3570, 3.4 GHz, with Swiftech's new Apogee XL waterblock, this a great waterblock for $69, and it comes with interchangable illuminated faceplate, my good friend EEL Ambiense designed a new replacement faceplate with a Giger-esque design, which I had laser cut, the cpu loop is PETG hardline tubing with EK 190 & DDC res / pump combo. Both loops are running distilled water. The system utilizes 32GB of their ADATA's new XPG V2 DDR3, and their Premirer Pro SP920 256GB SSD... I'll be using this PC in the shop for video editing primarily, so these two AMD Radeon 270Xs in Crossfire will save me from waiting for video to render all day... they're cooled with copper GPU blocks by Syscooling, just because I couldn't help myself...lol, and the power supply is a Corsair 750.

You can see how I created this PC here, Cooler Master Case Mod HR GIGER Tribute Project Biomechanical Hardline Liquid Cooled Gaming PC

Heh... 3 years???? Surprising how life gets in the way of projects. :)

Looks absolutely amazing!

So this is going to be a personal / shop rig as opposed to being sold off to the highest bidder?
