Thats odd, mines fine? cable not damaged?
Nah, it works fine for a couple of hours and then warning messages show up about power surging occurring on usb port. Even with it just sitting on my desk unplugged, it still looks rather awesome.
EDIT: Since writing this I tried it again with it also plugged into a power outlet (it has an auxiliary DC 5V power port), and it seems to transfer files at a faster speed so here's hoping I have fixed the problem and thus no more power surge.
PS; no power surge yet afer 6 hours
Ahhh mine doesn't have a separate power socket. Like you said even if it doesn't work it looks cool
Some snapshots of my buddies i7 rig, I remember a time when these cases were very popular.
Reminds me of my old gameboy colour. That had a clear, colour tinted, case. Always thought they were quite cool.
here is my oilrig i do gota replace my waterbottle with a proper resovaire
Yes you need a res
Clean that rig while you are at it!!!
I spy a 5970?
Yep. There are two retention mechanisms on the back.
You could have also checked his system specs
some day i want to get a hd7970x2
and upgrade my cpu's to 6 core 3ghz xeons
Won't that mean going lga2011 for the 6-core Xeons? or were there 6-core Xeons in lga1366?
I hate acrylic cases, but that thing is pretty sweet looking.
There are six core Xeons for the 1366 platform.
Ah. Had no idea.
Lenovo I have been adding on to for awhile i think I've done pretty well for the limitations I have
cable management could be better though, but I'm not gonna spend an more time until my new fans come in.....

Welcome to TPU
thanks, i've been reading articles and forum posts for months, finally decided to join and post
use the SSD for the OS .. with the size of games today , two games and the SSD will be full,
i have 128GB Crucial M4 and it half full with only BF3 with all expansions and Windows 8 ..
Tennis, You should think about case upgrade for proper airflow. Even on a budget a good case can always lower temps. I would recommend the NZXT Source 210 Elite. NZXT makes these cases in Black and White

I've looked at it, it's about 1/2-1 Inches too big to fit where I keep my pc
Around 16.5 is the max I could fit, but 15.5-16 would be preferable
Hmm, might be a good thought, problem is it would require buying an OEM Copy of w7(yes I know I can transfer it over w/o a new Os, but I'd rather use a clean install if I do so)
If someone could find an ATX/mATX that is less than ~16.5-17 in deep I'd likely jump on that. The only one ive found is the fractal core 1000 and idk if that's a good enough case to warrant the upgrade
You can use your current key with a new drive. If it doesn't activate automatically, you can call microsoft and get that fixed easily enough, they even built in the list of phone numbers you need to call into the activation software already present on your machine. It's still the same PC, for Microsoft is cool with you doing things like a fresh install on a new drive within the same PC.
Still applies to Windows8, too...I've checked by actually doing it.
About that key.......didn't come with my Lenovo(still using the OS it came with)
You can use it on new hardware, too, as long as it isn't present on the old hardware.
Basically, if you have a key you are using now, and won't use it in the future, but will buy another.. don't. You don't own Windows.. you own the right to use it on a single PC, and that key code is your certificate of that ownership.
you can even install it twice on a PC, whatever you want to do, as long as the key is only present and active on one physical PC.
Tennis would this be your size?
