    Saw and epic deal on an R9 280X on eBay. Someone bulk purchased 20 of them from the US a few months ago. Also I had a 20% eBay voucher (good for up to $50AUD in savings). So I went and bought it :D

    The 780 was moved into the lanbox;

    Because I change hardware often and with the QDC's I don't need to drain the whole loop each time. Like next week where I'm getting two 4960X's and two 4930K's :p

    Problem now is the PSU side in the case, this is what it looked like

    Epic, I'm very tempted to get a split case like that so I can be uber lazy (more than I already am :rolleyes: ) and just chuck the cables in the HDD/PSU area. Only downside is that I have pretty 0 room left on, under or around my computer desk since I put together some cheap miners.

    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 ?? :confused: :wtf:
    Not sure how it happened but I'm investigating it ATM :roll:

    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 :)

    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.

    [​IMG]

    tried to optimize my cable routing a bit but i guess there is still a lot of work to do :D

    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 :peace:

    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 :D so the crappy UMI X1 took the turn)
    IMG_20140326_131154.jpg IMG_20140326_123156.jpg

    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 :D
    IMG_20140326_132350.jpg IMG_20140326_132354.jpg IMG_20140326_132405.jpg IMG_20140326_134306.jpg

    and last but not least: funny story behind that card,
    geforce_gtx_580full.jpg IMG_20140326_123208.jpg IMG_20140326_122247.jpg IMG_20140326_122254.jpg
    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 ... o_O i might dare to re install the All in one driver ... and see if it was the culprit (i installed all except that ... so :D )

    Thanks :toast:

    No they're not as we've got a dog and I don't like to sand down floors every other year :p
    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.
