Just playin' some Skyrim, no biggie.
Dude. That is the greatest use of a fan I have seen in the last 10 years. Badass.
Thanks, it's not very stable though.. It's fallen twice from just the fan..
Simply because you forgot the bungie strap and duct tape
KNEW I FORGOT SOMETHING!
Laptop specs please
Love your tubing, nice stuff there.
Proc: Core i5 560M
Video card: GT420M 1gig
Mem: 4 gigs of DDR3
HDD: 640 Gig (prob seagate barracuda, haven't opened it up yet though)
Optical drive: the only blueray player in the house
it's a dell XPS 15
Thanks gives me a few ideas for my RV02
I have basically the same laptop except I have 6 GB of ram. I am actually impressed in its ability to play games. It just crunches most of the time though.
Installed the 720be earlier so decided to try mounting my silver arrow horizontally. ( had to ghetto rig a double back plate in order to make a mounting system that would work with the heatsink this way, as it blocks all the screws, managed to get it working but was bricking it the entire time incase I overtightened it, turns out the double back plate was so strong though that the x-bracket started to bend rather than the motherboard XD)
Got a bracket just incase the mounting system breaks at-least I'll still have my gpu! lol
Bought an Ultrasharp U2412M earlier today and retired my Samsung 2343BWX. For a lower end IPS, I sure am impressed with it. Pics later
Just kidding, but I say make room for both
Is called Norprene Tubing new in Watercooling shops.
By the by, does anyone think I should be worried about NB temps with my set up like that?
The middle fan on the silverarrow is positioned low so it should draw cool air through the NB but I'm not sure, also I can't touch the NB to find out if it's hot lol
you might want another bracket for that video card it seems to have quite a curve on it too
other than that looks good what sorta temps are ya getting on the 720BE
I just so happen to have another bar handy so will do that
Temps from coretemp + 10 offset.
36 under prime 95 heavy load.
Doesn't go over that.
nice n cool then thats the way
Heres the latest build, FX 6100 3.3GHz at a modest 4.2GHz. Everything neatly tucked into a Corsair Carbide 400R. Very good case for the price, tons of room to manage cables.
Damnba, that's super looking.
I've never seen the taskbar at the top of the screen, I may have to give it a shot.
Thanks. That's how I'm used to having my taskbar. Been doing it since Win98 days.
Would you recommend that Acer GD234HZ? I'm actually thinking about buying it.
Looks pretty great and has some nice features like 120hz and 3D and 2m response time.
But some reviews I've read that say peeps having problems with it.
But nontheless, awesome set up. ^^
I haven't had any issues with it, my only gripe is its not LED backlit and its not exactly the best looking quality. There is some yellowish tint to white's, blacks aren't black, more grey-black, typical LCD display 'issues'. 120Hz is very nice though. I came from a 27" iMac IPS display to this so it felt like a HUGE downgrade, especially when comparing the quality of the colors. But then again, it doesn't cost nearly 1k like the 27" Apple Cinema Displays do. So yeah, for $299 (NewEgg sale) its a good buy IMO.
Having the taskbar at the top of the screen makes sense, simply because all other apps have a menu bar at the top of the screen. Half the time I spend going back and forth, up and down...
Stupid part is I could never get used to it up there, so I'm stuck with it at the bottom...
Beautiful setup, Johnny!
