    Ordered some rubber edge trim from mcmaster carr. Hopefully that will make it look cleaner, its still kind of rough and I have to square up the top part but its getting there.

    Got my new (used) laptop 2 days ago, finally could be bothered to take a picture.

    [​IMG]

    For $220 I'm not complaining about specs, as it's cheaper than the Core 2 Duo I bought a year and a half ago was.

    -2.4 GHz Core i5 520M
    -6 GB RAM (was 2 when I got it)
    -160 GB Hard Drive, enough for programs and new files, have a 1 TB I carry external for old files.
    -nVidia Quadro NVS 3100M 256 MB. It's not that bad, runs Source games fine at mid settings, but I'm not using it for gaming.
    -1440x900 display. Colors are a but dull, but meh.
    -Awesome battery life for a used laptop. Ran it yesterday for a bit over 3 hours on full screen brightness starting at 97% charge. It was at 33% when I plugged it back in.

    going at it again, if the swiss post dont f**k up i might have to work on a second HAF-XB tomorrow + fan set and CCFL kit

    that Tt Element S is nice but not getting younger and i have the place on my desk for a HHAAFF--XXBB setup.

    now i really need to think about modding those, but i kinda like my boxes BLACK with white and red light... a bit of originality : mainbuild red fans white neon altbuild (steambox linux) white fans red neons... damn original isnt it? im Swiss red and white fan im from wallis RED AND WHITE FLAG i lived 28yrs in a town nammed Martigny RED AND WHITE FLAG! and also Wallis means RED AND WHITE WINE!!!:toast:

    still ordering that means im passing on 2 MSI 7970 Lightning ... duh... ~300$ a piece, damned (nope they dont send out of the mainland sadely, if any got the idea to ask me the link :D )

    Deals can be had on 7970 if you hunt around, so don't worry about passing it up at $300, I got mine for $280 off ebay. I've seen others around that price just have to keep looking.

    well 7970 maybe but a MSI HD7970 Lightning ... not sure :D naahh i dont care my 480AMP! and my 460Hawk are still kicking (and indeed im wondering why i keep a 7950 in a mITX build :eek: )

    now this is funny ... Asus Crosshair IV Formula seems to runs fine with Vishera FX proc... i didnt bothered to seek info on other than BD support on 890FX since i have a PHII X4 955 BE atm

    i wonder if a FX63xx would be an improvement over a 955 or a 8320 since i found a nicely priced one at my local retailer

    gah.. to hell with it ... i still have a 970 mobo so if a vishera FX dont work well on the CHIVF it will be a good update for a Phenom II X2 511 i use atm in the second rig :D

    Or better yet try to swing a Phenom II X6 Thuban.


    edit: nm the fx6300 is now cheaper than used Thubans, thought the thubans were going for less now.

    well it will be the next step. for the moment since i get the 2nd HAF this week, i love the "ready for delivery" but the only item in my order to be delivered tomorrow is the less needed ...

    i went for a 2nd modular PSU and will resell my CM GX lite (or the brand new Chieftec Nitro85+ BPS650C modulare i brought just 4 days ago :D naahhh bad reputation but seems to be not so bad)
    i took a InWin Commander III Desert Fox 700w at last ... the review of them arent half bad and the price was nice (last piece in stock so i got a 25% on it)

    and i had a thuban X6 but a 1035 and the X4 955 give more perf (second hand X6 are insanely priced tho ... where i am i cant find them under FX8320 price wich make them 30chf more than a FX6300)

    Awesome rig. You have a slot-based cooler for the VGA? Is it loud? I am sure it helps, otherwise you woudn't install it on the 1st place I guess. I've always scoffed at those when I see them in the shop, but never tried one for myself.

    Works great in the cosmos, the cosmos only comes with one intake fan at the bottom (I added a 3x5.25 /120mm fan in front. The VGA's temperature reduction is about -10*C! :laugh: Nothing to scoff at there! Best $8 I've ever spent. It is an intake (Antec Vcool) as opposed to most pci slot based coolers that are exhausts.
