@awesomesauce Awesome hardware cleanly done in a beautiful case!
Be careful with this. Many air cleaners use charged filters, whether that's ionic charges or static charges. I wouldn't want a staticly charged filter anywhere near my rig.
Thanks for the concern, I hadn't thought about that. But it isn't near any components. It is at the very front. Unless a statically charged dust particle could cause damage?
This is the filter. http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/air-purifiers-trueair-compact-pet-air-purifier-04384.html
had to trim it to fit it.
indeed nice job on the cable management oh well you can name your rig : "ElectroSnake's Terrarium" to go with the cable
lil' update : Carbide Spec-01/Fractal Design Integra R2 650w (will change if later i go CFX but for now: more than enough)/R9 290/M5A990X R2.0 paid and ordered
missing RAM/CPU (waiting on restock on the pieces i want )
one more good news ... it seems the R9 290 ref is compatible with 7970 mounting ... so i take for acquired that my MK-26 will be compatible with it! just need to find some ram/vrm heatsink now
It's a standard HEPA filter. No issues to be had. You may do better just disassembling it, pulling the filter element out, and using some Delta, San Ace, or PanaFlo fans.
Honda will not be pleased.
i was more about "Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing" will not be pleased ... and gosh she often sure looks pissed.
also ... "temporarig" gets in the "backup data" mode in preparation for the new arrival (still ~10days )
overnight delivery is the best! and that Carbide is not bad at all for 50chf ok it lacks some refinement but it's not overpriced
yet i still have to wait around 10-14days to get all...
have power cables go over the top of the card. It's probably the slight tension from them that is making it sag against the brace.
It's probs that, and the fact it's 3lbs
Seems like I no longer have an excuse to continue being a fat ass:
I'm addicted to this "FitDesk", I use it an average of 2 hrs. a day while browsing the net, streaming from netflix or playing my favorite game (gamepad is a must unfortunately ), whoever invented this thing is a genius!
EPIC! ive got some extra pounds from not being in the gym much these last months, finish work, eat and play games = me fatty! i should do this also!!
P.S patent/copyright that shit!
I feel you, I haven't been to the gym in years and don't go cycling as much as I did before anymore, one of these days I was creating a character for a game called dragon's dogma, and when I was picking the body type my son asked me to pick the one that, - putting it lightly - had the most body mass because he looked more like me, hahahaha!
After hearing that I was looking for a treadmill or stationary bike when I found this gem:
I bought it right away, it was love at first sight! And you don't really need a monster of a laptop to play while exercising now that steam can stream your games from your main rig! This here is the solution to the obesity problem in America, imagine burning an average of 500 to 600 calories an hour while you surf the net or game... brilliant!
They need to make it interactive with games were you have to pedal to run
True story: was being chased by gang members in watch_dogs and I realized I was pedalling much faster subconsciously! LMAO
cleaned things up a bit but cables still a mess XD (need to get them sleeves and extension), added moar fans on top, guess not so dead silence anymore... (well its still not audible as the fans on top were silent themselves)
Weightlifting is the best way to do it, just 30 mins 4 times a week full body divided between: bench, squat, deadlift, pullups, row, barbell curl, shoulder press. 30 minutes is not a big investment of time either.
You lose more weight than just doing cardio.
Not sure how you can play video games at the same time but weight lifting is like an MMORPG. You level up when you get stronger.
got my new vga
still 7h till i can go home and and install it
ok the cable management is a b*tch but since i use only 3 on 4 HDD slot i can hide the extra cable under them.
4 days remaining till the ordering the rest
also ... i received a M5A99X Evo in a M5A99X Evo R2.0 box ... duh!
Actually that was what I was referencing sorry if I was vague >_<, I had actually only seen the white around to be honest. I did not even know there was a Gold/Yellow one.
LOL really, thats odd...
Still looks good right now!
Glad to know im not the only one that does this . Just swap out for a treadmill and you have what I try to do each day!
Wow, that case and system looks really good, I like this case better now than the bitfenix prodigy just seeing someone else make a machine in it. Might have to use one in a steam box build or the likes!
Oh, man your son fat shamed you.
It's great your finding a way to exercise. Keep up the great attitude you have about it.
Being close to 4th of July, have your son pop firecrackers during your gang chase scene to simulate gun fire so your intensity goes up further.
^Any thing with weight is good. The only draw back is its isolated but balancing it out with cardio makes it a complete workout. Doesn't even have to be heavy, you can start as low as 30% of 1RM and build your way up with a rep scheme and stay with in a safe limit. I stay with-in 75%-85% of my 1RM for the given weight movement.
The older you get the more you have to do to retain what you have and build on it. Don't over do it either. Its a process you'll need your rest days.
Making it a fun habit is key. If you dread it you will find an excuse.
I know, it's a good thing he did, I want to be around so I can watch him grow up! You know what they say, kids always say the damnedest things , I been using everyday, cycling an average of 20 miles and burning about 1300 calories! That's a great idea but I don't know if I want that much intensity in my workout though! LMAO
Awesome! post pics of your workout/PC rig setup!, the nice thing about this bike is that I can even type while cycling, I'm typing this from it right now! I hope they become more popular and schools around the nation start using solutions like yours and the FitDesk
I have ASUS M5A97 R2.0 mobo. It's great but UEFI pisses me off. I can't navigate in BIOS with keyboard like good, old Award or Phoenix BIOS and install Arch Linux. Screw you, UEFI.
well i get used quick to UEFI even if i switched from a ASRock 970 Ex3 to a ASUS Crosshair IV Formula and a ASUS Rampage III extreme then a ASRock Z77 Ex4 then ASRock FM2A88X EX4+ and now this both kind of BIOS pose not prolem at all once i get my hands on it (no manual FTW!)
ok so i received the 290 what can i do i still miss the CPU and RAM ... hum well ... X16 1.1 is like a X8 2.0 so it should be fine xD
a bit ghetto since the cable of my GX Lite 600 is kinda ... hum ... shortened
RAM heatsink also received look shiny now
some Fan install for the Spec-01 until i can decide which fans i will take later
front Fractal R2 silent 140mm and a Noiseblocker Blacksilent 140 (will take a 2nd R2 later)
top and rear the bundled corsair 120mm red and 2 CM 120 will be noisy but it's a temporary issue
last thought ... i think taking a 6300 over a 8320 would also be a good idea, for me it's 40chf cheaper and the money spared could also be re invested in better fans or something else for the build... after reading and reviewing bench and results of 6300 vs 8320 the difference is not so big and 95w vs 125w is also good
That system is beyond blinged out, a dual socket system with ECC gold RAM and an R9 290! You should do a color scheme revolving around gold like that Ram Heatsink!
Sure thing, I do it with my MSI GT70, a wireless mouse with a extension pad and play normally a game of League or the likes. Ill show a pic once I get back in town, its pretty ghetto looking honestly the way I have it setup and its funny to see me playing on it.
