Can I play?
yea i like it and it was only about 120$ and its a descent size so, plus the cool looking top that they stole from alienware
I'm thinking i will probably sell this block on when the Aquacomputer Kryographics copper/plexi is released, like to see the liquid inside the block.
I only bought this xspc one because i wanted a block ASAP.
Just finished installing evga gtx titan. I also have backplate but I don't think i will put it on the card. I tried some of the smaller screws and they are way way too tight to remove. Only 3 out of 10 would come out before risking stripping the screw heads. But anyway doesn't affect performance and still looks nice...
Only running dual-channel on the RAM?
For the moment, second kit is going to RMA. Btw finally found some right tool for the screws + some too much finger power -> backplate installed!
LOL I know this is "Your PC ATM" but can it be "Your TV ATM" for one post LOL. Well my TV does have a PC in it HAHAHAHA
Lets start off by explaining this TV. Its a Samsung 400DXN-2 Commercial Grade TV. It came originally with a CUT down version of Windows XP Embedded and it sucked bad. I decided to test out Windows 7 but due to the ram in this thing it was painfully slow and the AM2 (yea not + or am3) didn't do it any justice either. So I found the motherboard model and did some digging and come to find out, its almost the size of a mATX board inside this TV. Also found out that it used a AM2 desktop socket and full size DDR2 ram slots. Well this morning I got the nerve to take apart my 1200$ TV in hopes to maybe get more ram in there. After I got it apart I found that it had two slots so I had an extra stick of 2GB and 1GB laying around. I threw those in there and it posted so I was happy but then I got to thinking that not too long ago I bought a Phenom I 9150E low powered quad here on TPU and it was collecting dust in the closet so I did what any crazy PC guy would do and took the heatsink off and swapped out the POS dual core for that decent quad. With fingers crossed I booted it up and to my joy the windows 7 loading screen popped up!!!!! I then repasted and put it back together to do a final test in the bedroom so thats were I am at now making this post!!! LOL
Original CPU was a Athlon X2 4450e 45W brisbane
New CPU is a Phenom I 9150e 65W Agena
you know, the rest of us just use a HDMI cable.
I'm not sure what that has to do with computers, seems a little personal, but congratulations
LOL but this TV came with the PC inside from the factory HAHAHA
Make sure it can..... HANDLE the extra RAM in its HARD DRIVE.... If you get what I mean
Also forgot to mention I upgraded the HDD from 40GB to 120GB 7,200RPM
That's a winner of a TV that
And how is that cooler lol, first time I saw the pic i thought you mashed an 8800GTS in there!
Nice TV mod lol
LOL naa they have a custom CPU/NB/IGP block. It has a HD3200 IGP that will probably be good for light gaming such as HL1 or SC1
Yeah I realised as I scrolled through your post
I had a laptop with a 3200 in once - some Turion II CPU thing - that 3200 ran CS:Source before they did some major updating, so HL2 should even run haha
That is truly one of the coolest things I have seen in this thread
All the way through 6th form (college), I was running CSS and Diablo 2 on a Turion II and a integrated X1xxx amd graphics chip on a gentle 1gb RAM laptop i was given to do my web media and HCI programming on lasted me a good 2 years on CSS!
Those Turion II processors were ok... I loved mine back then... but they got hot.
I also remember having to buy a new battery because the power went out during a CSS session, and the power draw was too much for the battery
File Server finally got evicted from the wooden drawer and got itself a new case like its big brother.
I made a mistake with the internal VGA size, so sadly it only has one of two GTX 275's in it, as the Arctic Cooling Extreme III takes up a little too much space for the Fan blower to fit!
Ignore the AMD FX sticker on the main rig, it lies! the TUF sticker too...
Ghetto dust filter
Great pictures man and great hardware. I see that Asus Xonar is isolated with a good layer of dust force protection
Rinsing out the new TEC setup! Got some mayhems XT-1 coming in a couple days.
Getting a bit chilly, this is a reading from the cpu block. Currently this is just distilled with sysprep, temps could be colder, as the radiator is currently warming up the water, due to there being no heat/load on the block.
This is with 4 60W Tecs(Currently running at 30W) in a chiller-
Some great cases. Looking good people
