    A few years ago I had one come in from an leather tannery an really old 386 in a desktop style case it was used to control recipes for dying the leather, anywho when i took the lid off to take a look you couldn't see a single component no shit this thing was choc full from bottom to top with a thick blanket of what looked like felt carpet underlay I carefully removed it bagged it up and took it back to show the boss who just about vomited when ha saw it albeit they now have a nice new filtered and cooled room where the PC's all sit

    I love the idea of the 295, and I hope she crunchs 24/7 with EASE!

    This is my completed computer with my 275 back from RMA and my 8800GTS swapped with a GTS 250 (black PCB too keep with the theme :D). The only way I change it again is if I get a 470.

    Pic is blurry cause I am trying to get used to my new digital camera I got a great deal on- Sony DSC-W370 for $40 :)

    No, I was hopeful for more interest :( I guess its not a big deal, I will most likely end up going retail when I see a great deal then sell my old card to recover the cost. If I go retail I am going to try and keep the GTS 250 to fold on anyway, looks too good :)

    +1 to this, love dark rigs :D


    Just cooked up some temperature readout screenies for you guys

    Prime 95 10 minutes max heat mode
    CPU,stock fan 100%,horizontally aligned heatsink ( airflow in upwards direction)
    [​IMG]
    Mostly they stuck around 30 but one core would blip back and forth between 31/32 bringing the other cores with it every now and then. No idea what ambient is but its warm enough to sit in shorts :laugh:


    GPU,stockfan 100%, Furmark no extreme burn.

    I like my new heat-sinks : ]

    Great setup!
    Seems strange tho not to have your best GPU with your best CPU :eek:
    Loving the all-black theme!
    Is that the NZXT Beta Evo?

    You guys think Win7 x32 could run smoothly on a computer with an Athlon 64 3800+ CPU and 1GB of DDR 400?

    yeah, but more ram would help. my mums system is weaker than that, and while it works things are a bit slow (programs run fine, but load times are poor, and things like transferring files take a few seconds to start up)

    lol wut? I was was talking about getting another gigabyte of memory for the computer so that Windows 7 would run a bit better.

    It has XP on it now and it's basically a clusterfuck of bloatware and junk. Needs a reinstall. They'll be all like "ooh aahhh it feels like a brand new computer" and will give me ever how much money I ask for :D

    Found no where to place the rad, didn't want to complicate things with the mounting of the rad. Plus this was sent to me just for folding :toast:

    Thanks dude. :toast:

    WOW!!! Great deal on camera :rockout: At that price it wasn't a deal it was a steal. Retail is around 229.00 on that 14.1 megapixel camera. Congrats to you on that one! :respect:
