    Believe it or not I'm a classical trained fine artist. Everything from oils to clay but my main love was graphite. However I soon discovered that it didn't pay the bills so I got into computer illustration. So now I do my art for apparel companies.

    Remington and Russell were both rednecks but I wouldnt call thier art "crappy" :laugh:

    C.M. Russell only painted things he saw in person. Some of them were breath taking. They were just secnes from everyday life in the west. Here are a few..

    This is a painting of a horse being "broke".

    However this one is called "Meats not meat until its in the pan!". I think by looking at this you know the feeling :laugh:

    Moving on here is Remington. Don't confuse him with the gun manufatuer. This guy was a true master.

    Ya JRacin, I remember putting mine off for months on my first build last year...was so excited I overlooked CM...just wanted to see it perform!!! But once you get it done and cleaned up, it's so rewarding. :)

    Old plasticized tubing. Nothing wrong with the tubing at all.

    Not at all, was just wondering why it looked like that. I know when i first went water my loop got dirty and looked like that but less silverish. Then I had to remove rad and clean it to make it stay clear.

    Bought a 450W Corsair at CompUSA today, along with a Samsung SATA DVD burner (they were on sale for $20). So, when I got home I was finally able to put together my Gamma build.

    Here it is. Got the front fan connected up to the back fan controller so the whole thing is really pretty quiet. I also replaced the stock cooler with a Rosewill one I had and put AS5 on there with it, but I get the same exact temps as before :cry:

    [​IMG]

    Next upgrades go like this:
    1. Additional 2GB ramstik
    2. New larger monitor
    3. Better vidya card for light gaming (a 5750 would be sweet but I'm most likely only going to be able to get something like a 9600GSO)

    Also, I freaked out when I set up the computer and my room to be greeted by a disk boot failure on startup. The shock was surpassed rather quickly with laughter though, since as you can see in the picture, not a single SATA cable was present in the computer. :laugh:

    How about a new cooler since your temps didn't improve? :p

    Soylent Joe, I have a Zalamn 9500A that I would sell to you for a discount. I know it's an improvement over the Rosewill, as I had the 92mm fan version and the Zalman was better than it.

    Although the temps didn't improve, they're still not that bad. Idles around 30C and maxes out at 48C after some Prime95, while at 3.4GHz. I will keep your Zalman in mind though, but I need some more ram first (or a monitor, the one I'm using on there has some bad backlights in it :ohwell:).

    That print is in damn near every restaurant in the state. The C.M. Russell museum is quite an eye full. I'd go more often, if Great Falls wasn't such a crap hole - not to mention a four hour drive.

    Howard Terpning is a modern western artist who has taken the reigns from the two classics you mentioned. I trimmed out a house last winter for a fellow who owns the largest collection of his work. Almost put a piece of baseboard through an original oil worth umpteen hundreds of thousands. Yipes.

    Anyway, back to the computer jazz.:)

    Ok, slightly better pics of the inside of my rig.

    Firstly, ambient light with long shutter using a tripod.
    [​IMG]

    Next, flash bounced off a white reflector.
    [​IMG]

    The ambient shows off the leds nicely, but the flash looks cleaner in some way. And yes, the pc was running. The flash "stops" the fans.

    As for the flaking paint, I didn't sand down the metal before applying primer. Bad move.:banghead:

    That may be a good thing then, means the temperatures could go lower. I might get a tube of MX whatever after I'm done with the AS5, but it's too expensive to just not use up.

    Well, each time I build a pc, I get better at cable management. Still have a long way to go though. Problem is I get bored with the little details, and just want to get it finished. Patience and attention to detail (and a bit of OCD maybe) seems to be what is needed to build a truly clean and neat pc.
