Good Day everyone, I am new to Pure overclock, I have been building my own pc for years now, and also have been a flightsim hobbyist. I have included the timeline pictures from my build from early 2007 2008 to today.
real quick here is my system specs.
AMD phenom II x 4 955t BE Overclocked 4.2ghz
16gb gskillz OC ddr3 1600 ram
xfx HD7870 ghz edition card
2 acer 1920 x 1980 monitors 23"
2 aoc 1920 1020 monitors 23"
1x 20" dell monitor for split dvi for copilot gauges
eyefinity setup. 3x1 + 1 5868x1080 + 1920x1080
1 hdmi 1 dvi 2 x mini display port to dvi
1 teclast a10 dual core 9.7 ips touch screen tablet for touchscreen FMC
Sound blaster Audigy es platinum sound card.
2 Saitek throttle quadrants with custom 757 handles.
1 ch products yoke
1 Saitek switch panel
1 Saitek radio panel
1 Oneshop pulse usb plug board for fuel cut off and parking brake switch on pedestal.
1 12 port powered usb hub
My first setup using eyefinity back in 2007 2008
Then came the Saitek switch panel which started the downward spiral of things to come.
Then i upgraded to a fully functional 757 and took weeks to learn how to operate a real 757.
Then came the Saitek Radio Panel, and got me to create a center pedestal. My background in Automotive Repair made creating switches for parking brake and
fuel Cut off made it easier for me to do. YOu see the skeleton of the pedestal here.
Here you see the someone finished pedestal and backlit indicators all painted.
Then came a Program called AIRDISPLAY from avatron. which allows you to add a tablet or WiFi device as an extended monitor adding to already
my 4 monitor setup with no cables. I found this 9.7 ips teclast dual core TPAD on amazon for 199$ rocking 4.3 ics droid. Now i can drag the 757 flight management
computer off my monitor and over to a touch screen tablet.
here is the more finished pedestal with FMC flight management computer bezel mounted.
I then upgraded my throttles to the dual saitek throttles which have more distance in angle and mounted this way give a real angle.
I ordered a 757 handle kit from a friend i met from Italy online and designed a flap detent modification the throttles using MY DIY
3/8 aluminum bar form around the throttles and cut and angle a bolt hole for mounting.
File down using a round file to 4/32nds, and align to where you marked the flap detents using flight simulator.
My design schematic.
Also made this custom template
The handle kit from FlightSimPM
My finished throttle assembly withmy custom flat detent. spring return handle.
Simulator as it was in early 2013, used a dvi splitter for the First officer view which mirrored my display.
Then Came the XFX HD7870 ghz edition which allowed me to have up to 6 displays.
I purchased another 23" aoc monitor from BB for around 125$ and split my 2 displays giving me almost 55 inches of wide display running true HD 5868 x 1080 and bottom display 1920 x 1080
Further Modified the FMC so it was not in the way of the throttles, and angled as it is in real life.
My Current Display which the TABLET using air display via wifi.
then purchased the Butt Kicker Simulation kit, mounts under my seat and feel lifelike clunks and bumps adds so much immersion.
I also just recommend this for anything, Music games, it adds so much immersion.
And finally My Current Setup as of 2014
Well i hope you all liked my timeline build of my flight simulator.
