BP, is that the laptop that had the dying SLI on it?
Fking nice monitor setup!
Very nice. I think 3 580s is the only way you can play crysis2 with everything at max.
Looks like you need to re-calibrate all those monitors so the colors match. Otherwise, looks good.
Chopped and dropped? Hey, man - you lowered your PC...
considering so many can lie about their gender anyway, n then the Cross dressers
I like the TPU under the sata ports :3
Nope because after the SLI was dying on that laptop, it actually died. Went kaput. O Ine card worked for some months, then it also quit. Heaven knows how much arctic silver I used trying both cards, then one at a time, then one at a time but in different slots. Believe me, I will never ever purchase a gaming laptop again -- to have TWO 8800M GTX die on you? One perhaps but two.... was a tad too much...
What I'm using is a piece of junk discarded 5 years ago by my dad, system specs in my signature -- no I key, faulty Alt key and faulty optiiical drve.
In a way I long for summer to end so that I have back my old desktop, 2560x1440, HD5970, E8400 oc'd at 4GHz.... oh how I love thee!
Oh how I hate my Sapphire Dirt 3 Edition for being so long and so ugly...!
NB cooling is "custom" as u may see but I had to do something after going CFX cause it was getting hot as hell...
I have a 7+ Year Old Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 1 (Inspiron 9100) thats Running Perfectly to this day.
Bah, I have a E machine 200mhz with 64mbs of ram and a 4.2 gig hdd that I still use.
Difference here, Mine is a Gaming Laptop for the Era.
Can I play minesweeper? :3
Thank you! For a multi-monitor setup @5760x1080, or higher, yes , for a single monitor a dual card setup should be plenty enough
Yes, the ones on the sides are set to match using identical modes, but the one in the middle is really bright, I think it's to compensate for the 3D mode, as you're effectively reducing brightness by 50% once it's enabled, I still have to tinker with the brightness settings for the 2D surround, thanks for pointing that out
Ouu 6770! I'll take that dirt 3 code off your hands btw. No need to return the favor :3
The bad thing is that all the cable management I just did will have to be redone. I bought longer SATA cables about a week ago, I guess I'll wait until they get here to do it.
Next up, a new case :3 There are some nice ones on newegg for under $50!
nah, I like the looks of my case. Besides what's the fun of cable management if your case makes it easy for you?
I'm thinking on a few mods for my case. I saw that Scythe has 120x120x12 fans and I think that I could mount a couple at the bottom of the case (the case has a 2cm clearance from the bottom thanks to the server style feet). I'm also considering installing a 140mm fan at the top to replace the current 120mm one. That'll allow me to make a bigger hole and make it look nicer. I really didn't have any experience when I did this:
I could also paint the internals black but that'll have to wait a while as I'm going to buy some hardware to turn my previous rig into an HTPC, only thing left is a case but HTPC cases are quite expensive I guess a regular desktop case should be fine but I need one with a hidden 5.25" bay.
for someone that's had no experience cutting holes in cases as you put it you've done a fairly descent job of it and trust me when I say I've seen some really bad blow hole jobs with jagged edges and bits stickin out just waiting for an unsuspecting finger
Gone ITX for the first time. Took ages to make everything fit but glad it worked out well. It's the stuff in my system specs now. Blurrycam:
