Hello, everybody, this is Bill Owen from Mnpctech.com, and this is my H.R. GIGER Tribute PC. I actually started this build a few years ago, but got shelved so I could take on customer commitments at Mnpctech, so it has a mixture of old and new hardware, what prompted me to finally get it done, was H.R. 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" and inspired the look of my PC. The hardware as I said, is a combination of old and new. It's been 3 years since the asus Sabertooth P67 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 CPU water block, this a great water block for $69, and it comes with inter changable illuminated face plate, 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 hard line 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.
