    Retro cases for the win! This should become the next fad, I would love to find my old tower from like 95 that had the screen displaying 366mhz and put in a different one to show the new clock speeds!

    Now i'm intrigued, might have to have some fun and build a system with spare parts.

    Don't forget that it can have G-SYNC added to it.

    Got my msi cooler today. Truly a pain in the ass to install compared to my past corsair h80's and h100's. Looks nice and works silent enough. Replaced the stock fan with a San ace 25mm fan because I didn't have the 38mm screws :(

    PC sprung a leak so it's time to readjust a few things. Here is partially disassembled.

    And the block still looks pretty good for using red coolant.

    Why you guys use "computer" coolant instead of thé green one for cars or the GM Dex-Cool?

    Eh, because it's GREEN, and I don't own Nvidia cards :laugh: No, this is first time using coolant instead of distilled in years, and I wanted to go for a black and red theme; thus the green wouldn't quite sit right.

    I was generally speaking. Why people get scammed by computer coolant instead of real heavy duty coolant? Other than color whats the reason? Just add food coloring to real coolant thats it.

    Dex Coolant is Red, or pink once it get's old...two years running through an Engine...It changes color to pink-ish.

    If you run it through your computer, and it starts to turn Pink? You are one lazy fu*k!! :roll:

    ok so i was playing a bit with my workstation: reversing ODD/HDD/FAN cage to improve the airflow on the nForce 2050 chipset... who is quite a scorcher :D and testing a cheap thermal compound from GD china, Ebay around 1€ for 1g so i decided to give it a try on the Opterons (you can see the syringe on the desk) >2.0W/m-k i have seen worse deal ...: "Spire Bluefr[W]o[R]st" 2.8W/m-k and 4€ for 0.5g a little test and i will see if i have to go back to my beloved MX-4, i ran across the TPU wallpaper thread ... well ...

    i just noticed ... i have a Ubuntu sticker on my rack but i use Win7 64 Pro ... aherm ... woops

    and i fiddled with my Razr i panorama pics mode... well not quite the good one :roll: unless my screen and 19" rack are the flexible type ... 1st try : mild fail xD
    IMG_20140529_140359_077.jpg

    i wonder why i didn't see the TPU wallpaper thread before xD what you see on the left is my Toshiba Folio 100 (CM10.1 4.2.2) who is reconverted into a monitoring screen since i hate wasting electronics even if the screen is completely cracked from top left to bottom right (barely noticeable tho)

    The school gave me £40,000, so I bought WQHD 1440p and i5's

    Also the room is enormous, has the height and width of two classrooms, and full height windows looking out on nothing but greenery. Truly a gorgeous sight.

    looks totally awesome and cool :D (wait those units are Dell SFF? or HP Compaq?)

    also stress testing my 2 Opteron 248 while playing BF3 (THANKS ORIGIN!) on the main rig ... well it seems that Chinese TIM is not half bad for the price paid... 46°-48° CPU01 and 49°-51° CPU02 (Prime95 x64 100% load) on super quiet fan profile (Supermicro H8DCE) monitoring the rig on my Tablet (gosh that Trigone monitoring software is good )
    IMG_20140528_111046_559.jpg IMG_20140529_220837_828.jpg
    i might order some more for the next clean'n repast session if the test conclude on a good point (spread test and corrosion test after the stress test, but they advertise it as non bleeding and non corrosive, altho not non conductive it seems)

    ok 1 more debt to clean and i will be able to surf again on the "high end" side of the upgrades ... wooopeee! i can't wait to be back into upgrades and bench mode!
