I've been sitting on this one for a few days - I went out with my buddies here at home and a day and some hours of mayhem ensued :rofl:













XFX sure as freakin' hell knows how to put together a card package (colors and such) eh? I cant wait to get waterblock's installed


OCZ ssd for the OS drive :D got it cheap



Saw Malik's PSU and said, damn that's good looking - its gonna need some color modification though ;)











thats all for tonight folks ;) ...

well my father is a professional photographer, I could never afford even one of the larger power packs that you see in the third photo on my own (ok, well maybe one but definitely nothing else after that haha)

Powerpacks? How do those differ from a wall outlet, I'm not much of a photographer, I got an 8mp digital camera and I think the quality is awesome, but I'm not too picky :p

um, well they are elinchorm flash packs, basically they power the light banks which are super bright strobes with extremely accurate color balancing. the larger packs are 4000 wattseconds (analgous to a 4000 watt SPU I guess, but different) and that is the rating they can deliver in power. My house has an entire extra 220v circuit built in to power just this room's photo equipment.

I am not the expert on the exact workings of the packs but I can found more if you really want to know

Ah, so they just require an extreme amount of power and those give it to them. Thats all I wanted to know, didn't need anything technical, interesting though.

Got a bit behind on my posting due to starting my new job, here are the last 2 updates.

Red connectors :down:


Black connectors :up:


Black Connectors :up::up::up::up::up::up::up:


WARNING! Naked pictures below!










since I need to practice overclocking I finally got myself a good cooler and since I need to practice my photography here are pics :D
(sorry for the size - I hate jpeg quality compared to the raws)










And the magnificent return of the hedgehog! lets call him sonic for now eh?

sorry I know people will say lapping to 2000 grit wet is pointless but I am too much of a perfectionist for anything less. And no there is no polish at all on that base.

I agree its a terrible on 775 and even hard on 1366, but for AMD its super easy the the clip gives a ton of pressure. Provided I had to use a ton of force to get the clip on the mounting hooks of the socket initially after that it was a breeze and my temps are AMAZING. after crunching WCG all night at 3.817ghz the cpu has never gone above 47C :cool:
