As we are all tech crazy around here a place was needed to not only describe ones machine but to show it. This place is here. Any forum user can post photos of her/his MSI system here just to show off :photo:

For how to add photos please refer to >>Forum features & how to use<<

Enough of the talking start posting :pompom:

All 16 of them? :think: All 100% MSI mainboards BTW, all with Corsair RAM and Zalman 9900's. :-))



How about a BB X II Flagship? :yes:

heres a few pics of where i'm at so far, going to put a few yellow braids in 24pin and pcie cables and get some different leds for the raystorm block, they should be yellow, not orange. going to tidy cables better when i have done this, and still dont know if i should get a second lightning, may just wait and hope that msi produce a 8970 Lightning and get one of those.

We'll. It's quite a while since someone posted here. But it could be a nice thread so I guess I'll post some of my photos here too.

Quite old and with my old HD5970's.

Will update when I get a waterblock for my new MSI 7970.

The rad on the back isn't really the best solution, but it atleast has some spacers now to get some airflow between it and the case.

After 6 years of using a Dell XPS 720, I've finally built a PC for the first time.

I currently have GTX 460 HAWK's in there.  I'll be changing those out once MSI releases their 780 Lightning cards.  Oddly the Hawks don't seem very happy in there.  Their LED's appear to indicate that the cards are under a constant load.  However real time usage indicators show 0%-1% use.  I've had a number of instances where the video driver crashes and recovers.

So far I've only used the OC Genie button for over clocking.  At first OC Genie was quite cranky and instead of overclocking the system it would crash it.  I cleared the CMOS and OC Genie works now.  OC Genie does not increase the GTX 460 HAWK's over clock.  I'm not sure if that's because I've left these cards factory set all their lives or not.  Maybe if I flicked the unlock dip switches on them Genie might do something to them.

Here's an attempt at posting some pictures.

OC Genie only applies an overclock to the CPU and RAM where possible. It will not change any GPU settings.
Use MSI Afterburner to OC your graphics card.

Nice rig setup btw  :biggthumbsup:

Well didnt get any of my brothers and my rig together, but here are a few of just mine .. some changes from the last picture :D ( mind the quality :p )
The lighting changes a whole load of different colors, even came with a remote haha! :D The only thing my lovely machine is lacking is an SSD .. I really do want one, but thet are expensive for such few gigs! if anyone wants to complete my rig for me and send one to south africa i wont complain ;) haha :p .. Ill probably add another 2T storage HDD soon as im running low, and possible PSU upgrade in a few months. besides that im happy with its for awhile .. maybe when the new 9000 series cards come out ill the 7970 lightnings will go for cheap and ill get a 2nd.

My new pretty!

SegaStep, are those normal fans on top of your CPU radiator?  The picture makes them look HUGE.

Does a brand-X mainboard qualify as an MSI system?  :think:

Asus Z87-A
