Speaking of changing: 4Gb 1866 for 8Gb 2133
But did you see the pics of the room??
Did you notice how the mess from the old rig had transferred it self to the room and spread all over it ??
Not sure how it happened but I'm investigating it ATM
Here you can see it quite clearly
Now this is my view from when I working and where my Mrs usually sit to keep me company.
This room is NOT our main living room, just so that you guys don't think I've taken half our living room.
IKEA ftw Guessing on a Norwegian home, only thing giving it away is the Rema 1000 bag in lower left corner, last pic.
Have the same office chair and using the same two lamps as work-light hence it my attention too the interior and not the computer parts
Still rock'in the CRT! Nice!
Thanks. CRT still have great colours. On this low-end 17" CTX I have 1280x960 resolution and 72Hz. Not bad really
This is che cleanest build EVER.
An internal look of the laptop I currently use.
Card reader and USB board:
Cooling assembly with fan removed:
And the results of the cleaning was 30°C reduction in temps.
i just found out my 2 years old hdd has some pending rellocated sectors and that scared me so much that i bought a new ssd to replace on the next day. it was a nice upgrade from hdd but i didn't find it to be like night and day difference, it can be because i am using windows 8 that has really nice boot up time even with hdd.
tried to optimize my cable routing a bit but i guess there is still a lot of work to do
my next upgrade would be adding custom loop or 1440p monitor and i hope i could get either of them by the end of the year
ok time for a little "spring cleaning" since i noticed that my rig was acting funny i thought about a good refresh of the win install would do the trick
no slim ODD ... oh well no biggies. (sorry for the blurry pics but my SX100IS was out of battery and no spare so the crappy UMI X1 took the turn)
then a bit of upgrading a DC7700P to do a "HTPC" well it does the work pretty much fine (i got it from the job just before going to a dump) adding a passive HD5450 1gb DDR3 and reducing the fan to 30% make that rig do way less noise than my actual home cinema DVD set up (i have a rather crappy one ...) main OS HDD Velociraptor 150gb + DVD/CDRW + WD green 500gb (data storage) and a external WD green 500gb for more storage, total cost of the "resuscitation" 27chf for the 5450 i will see if i can find a good LP soundcard
and last but not least: funny story behind that card,
i wanted to have a ref 580, firstly to see if a card of that length could fit in the Sugo and to check cable management for the next upgrade i am planning
secondly oh ... well... i love the 580
So the story behind it: it was on a Ebay alike swiss site, cheap and in last minutes, i won the auction and got the confirmation mail ... and surprise: the seller was my best friend ahahah ... advantage, no delivery fees and a good laugh while eating some pizza and lasagna and a good beer to make it pass.
edit clean install pretty much solved my ... epileptic FPS behavior ... i might dare to re install the All in one driver ... and see if it was the culprit (i installed all except that ... so )
Got a monitor arm, only got one section connected at the minute since i don't need it to extend that far.
very cool if mine was vesamount too i would do it too so my cat cant move it around xd
Love the design of the living room. Those real wood floors?
No they're not as we've got a dog and I don't like to sand down floors every other year
It's a type of laminate, almost as expensive as real wood, soft to walk on and sound "proof" in a way.
Looks nice either way. Really like the color and how it goes with the whites.
Until now I didn't know I cared about home design (probably cause I rent an apartment). Enough off topic from me tho.
Awww yiss, ordered meself a Corsair CX750M to rid myself of that hopeless Spire unit, and a Cooler Master Jetflo 120 with blue LED to compliment my front a bit.
Not my pc atm but soon to be my firewall atm once I get rid of the dust and cobwebs and give it a home.
Was at the MSI OC Academy yesterday. I would post pics if the TPU uploader would've let me. Got some new fans, my Corsair CX750M, and a sweet side decal! That power supply got rid of all the cap noise... sweet.
Just a word af advice: If you like silence of any kind, DO NOT get a Cooler Master Jetflo 120... even with the ultra silence adapter, it gets REALLY loud, and those adapters beat the reason i bought it, which was no LED dimming... bleurk.
Well, the Jetflo was too much for me. i took it out and i'm gonna send it back. Now got this generic cooler master fan i got from a friend in it. brighter LED then the Jetflo with that adapter on full speed, and this is on 40%...
Finally got the build/move finished, here's the result.
Still a bit messy in the PSU side but much better than before, kind of hard to hide all the cables
my 3930k/GTX 780ti system-
here is mine, nothing special(EDIT : Will post a better looking picture in this week)
please for the sake of my eyes use the cable management holes please
