    Specs: Processor: Intel i5 6600k Skylake @4.1 ghz
    Graphicscard: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 980 ti
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 3

    It has 16GB RAM, a 128 GB Samsung 850 PRO SSD with the OS on it and a 2.5 TB Western Digital Harddrive with all my Programs.

    My Monitor is a 24" Samsung S24D300. I have an old MAXDATA keyboard so i can hit it with my fist when my PC is crashing. :D . My Mouse is a CMstorm something.

    My Headset is a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma

    I put a piece of Opel Steering wheel on my G27 so it looks a bit nicer.
    It has a 650 watts Power Supply.

    My Case stands on a little Table thingy and i connected Mouse, Keyboard, G27, and WLAN Stick with a single 3 meter USB-Cable to it.

    It's a great PC, apart from a pretty small SSD. Shouldv'e went with 240-480GB. How much did you spend on it anyway?

    That's a lot. Why did you pay that much? The hardware (including peripherals) shouldn't be over like 1600€ overall.

    My old setup was a 2008 GIgabyte motherboard that i upgraded with an Intel Core Duo Quad 3 ghz processor and a nvidia geforce 750 ti and some fancy RAM. I could handle beamng @ about 20fps. After a while i got bored of that piece of slowness and complety rebuild it with some expensive stuff. The old internals gave i to my brother and he put it in an old 2003 MAXDATA Favorite 3000 Pc :D

    Makes sense. As long as the airflow is decent, that's a really nice setup and a HUGE improvement hardwarewise.
    EDIT: Shouldn't be THAT over-the-top, that price. Might be a bit terrifying, that number. But still.

    In my own personal opinion its a great sleeper, although let down by the SSD but that can always be fixed at a later point in time :)

    8cm? Thats, thats gonna throttle at load. Those are some damn tiny fans, standard is 120cm. THey have less than half the intake area of a 120cm fan.

    ...how did you fit a 980 in that tiny case? and IMO if you want a true sleeper PC you should use a light beige case from
    A true sleeper computer should be in a cheap beige HP prebuilt tower from the 90's :p

    I don´t know but i broke my hands into pieces while doing it.

    I don´t think that 980ti would fit in a Hp prebuilt tower
    --- Post updated ---
    These Fans i have are some fancy bequiet SlientWings2 with an airflow of 44,2 m³\h per piece. I have no troubles with them.
    20160204_180214.jpg thats a pic where i drawed the airflow

    well, you inspired me to stick my gaming pc into a beige case. I5 4670k @ 4.25ghz, 8gb ram, 2 way gtx 760 SLI, 6.240 tb of storage(3tb,2tb,1tb, 240gb ssd) and an evga supernova 750w psu.
    That cutout is where i put a fan to cool the hard drives
    excuse the mess. im still cleaning up, slowly though.

    Not really. More like vice versa.
    Wait, are we in the weird part of the forums again?
