I have just returned to the game after about 15 years away from live content, and found this post as I was trying to make sense of the plethora of information found on these forums... (Awesome community, awesome tools, and a whole new world of EQ!)
So as I consider myself a "computer enthusiast" and love to build PC's with watercooling and especially in non-standard cases, i present my latest build below I built last year right before the virus started.
CPU: Intel i9-10980XE
MB: Asus Prime x99 Edition 30
RAM: 64GB (GSKILL Trident-Z RGB 4x16GB KIT 3600Mhz)
Monitor: Samsung C49RG9xSS
VGA: Asus Dual-RTX2080S-O8G-EVO
PSU: Corsair HX1200i
Sound Card (yeah i know... but i like it): SoundBlaster AE-9
SSD: Samsung 970 Pro 1TB
And 7*3TB Toshiba HDD
Clean when it was finished:
And for a bit of inside look: Custom hardline watercooling using EKWB parts for CPU and GPU blocks.
And a better view of the guts:
I built another comp for my wife with a slightly different spec and I can post that too if anyone is interested (we play together from time to time, but not EQ sadly...). I also have a "progress" slideshow of pictures, showing how i built these comps that I can share
is that a Lian Li Desk? thats rather neat, i've never seen that before!
how quiet is the rig with all the fans? Enough airflow through that they dont have to run at high rpm?
