My build - not for everyone, I understand that completely.

Yet, look how that Optane 900P PCIe SSD simply shines in full aesthetic glory with a horizontal motherboard configuration and no side or top panel way out at the very left edge, connected directly to the CPU lanes for super speed.

Just WOW! :eek: (first pic below)

Having that image in right-side peripheral vision all day long while working is technologically inspiring. :)

.

vs the same Optane 900P PCIe SSD mounted in a tower case then located on the very bottom in motherboard slot number 4 - not much of an aesthetic impact at all. (other photos below)

I have to build up my few build aesthetic high points since there are so many other aesthetic low points. :oops:

All that wasted water gear. :shadedshu:

I just don't have the heart to remove it. Designed initially for extremely short combination soft and hard tubing runs way back in Spring 2017, when my next platform was going to be X299 and a Rampage VI Extreme, then Coffee Lake was announced - such incredible thermal efficiency when delidded and high-binned - there wasn't any need to complete the loop.

The top 120mmx60mm rad feeds into the Aquacomputer PWM D5 pump and Singularity Computer pump top directly below via gravity for ideal water pump priming, so no real need for a reservoir.

Scientifically speaking - so beyond cool.

In this pic: Batman is sleeping - leave him alone. :D

Bruce, when are you going to put those rads to use?!

The collectors edition Trident Z Royals have amazing specs, the 4800C18 would be my dream kit.

The very same moment I find a brain in my head, apparently. :)

I should have spent the extra $39 for the 4800Mhz kit for a better chance at a slightly improved Daily OC, but again my brain seems to wander like a donkey. :D

I currently have my parts laid out for maintenance. Missing a board, CPU and ram. I only have the Titan Xp and PSU left from a previous build. Going to gather parts slowly and hopefully get the Gene XI next month. I'm thinking the Gene XI would be the best board to overclock memory with for my matx build coming up.

Alrighty, invitation accepted. Batman with a side of Robin? I won't have a theme though. I need to get this build done fast but it doesn't look to be in the stars as you know there will be interruptions coming soon. ;)

No theme necessary, just spend all your time becoming that super special dad to your new boy. They are transformational little beings. :)

Let us know all about your build and your blessing, when you find some time off. No pressure.

Want to guess the upcoming case? Think matx, throwback to the early 2000's. :D

Hint - it won't be awesome Caselabs this time.

So mysterious, early 2000s, I'm lost, 2012 is my early new beginning with computers.

Should I be afraid? :eek:

I'll contact my folks and get you a high-binned 9900KS superchip for standard stock prices.

A new baby gift from me, I'll pay the difference.

Just share your build with us. :)

It's a Silverstone TJ08-E! inverted mATX case from 2011. :clap:

Woohoo, I got it, do I win a prize? :p

That's a nice looking case.

Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner. :)

I had to look around far and wide to find one with the side window as well as upgrade the front fan to Silverstone's new AP183 PWM model. I like the small footprint with the large front fan which directly flows air to the cpu/gpu and out the rear exhaust. It should provide awesome air flow in a small form factor.

Nice choice! I'm thinking of grabbing one for my 4790K while they're still available.

Just arrived, Robin has made an appearance! :cool:

The TJ08-EW features a built in side window where the original was a solid panel. This should help out in the looks department so it's not too plain.

I got some MAD guessing skills, right? :D

You both are gonna make me impulse buy that TJ08-E.

-don't even need a case.

-don't even have an mATX mobo.

https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=303&area=en

Where do they sell the side window version? I've looked everywhere. lol :p

Went out and grabbed Shanghai Angus Steak and Beijing Beef rice and supergreens for the two of us, little bear is at Grandma's/Grandpa's til Monday. It's not real Chinese, still good.

I really need a video card and not a case, if I'm gonna play some BL3. Thinking an EVGA 2060 Super would be about right for a 1440p seldom gamer like me, but then I'd really rather have another AMD card (love color temperature control) just don't know where to begin.

Might just save BL3 for after we relocate, along with all of Game of Thrones, we've only watched the first two episodes first season, so there's like hours and hours of together-time for the new place. Some place at high altitude far away from hurricanes.

We used to joke around in the forums about Noctua manufacturing a line of cases. I really wish they would. :)

You got that right! :toast:

I found a few stock at FrozenCPU, at a discount compared to MSRP. Seems like old inventory they're trying to get rid of. There's also a 6% coupon code as well you can utilize. PM me if you want it, I think it's against the rules advertising a competitor site.

I found a few stock at FrozenCPU, at a discount compared to MSRP. Seems like old inventory they're trying to get rid of. There's also a 6% coupon code as well you can utilize. PM me if you want it, I think it's against the rules advertising a competitor site.

Link to purchase -> Silverstone TJ08-EW
Dood, all the crazy madness that went down at FrozenCPU, if your new case could only talk. just sayin'. :D

Lots of Silverstone TJ Series over at Performance PCs some at huge discounts.


Hey, PPCS has the Fortress FT02 midtower.

I always wanted one of those, right before I dropped into CaseLabs stuff. Hey, they have (5) of them, wow! :eek:

It's such a classic. :toast:

Borderlands 3 is going live at 7pm EST for PC. Geez, want to play it so bad.

Couldn't get a video card here until Monday. :oops:

I'm not really into gaming much anymore, but I LOVE Borderlands and the Doom series, never stop playing those two...

I know right, I'm just happy the case arrived brand spankin new. I haven't taken it out of the case yet and want to keep it pristine until I can get more parts. Can't say anything about how FCPU was run previously, but this order went through without a hitch so here's to the new crew running it. :toast:

I like Eber with Hardwarecanucks, he's cool. :)

Eber says 70days on a single charge, not 7days, lol. And he's absolutely correct, the charge on both my MX Master 2S's lasts forever for a wireless mouse, and the software gives you a Windows10 heads up alert when the battery is getting low.

As far as the (matching) MX keyboard Eber mentions in the video, we all know that's only a spin-off product - janky at best. Keep using your awesome mechanical keyboard from a company that only makes keyboards. lol :D

Also, from my personal use, if you love a really FAST mousing experience, leave the Win10 mouse pointer motion speed at default and set your MX Master mouse pointer speed to 66% on the slidebar in Logitech Options software. You will love it so much at 1440p it equates to about 2500dpi out of the maximum capable of 4000dpi. If you are using a higher res display like 4K set the pointer speed higher more like 70% to 80% whatever FEELS best to you. :)
