I swear my HAF 932 weighed in at closer to 50.

Add in a full system with a top quality power supply and them puppies bring in close to 70lbs!!!! But they were built like a tank!!!!

I still have two of them cases; one the standard ole HAF 932 and the other is the limited AMD edition red case. Both in use with extended ATX or what ever the Supermicro motherboards are. :laugh:

Still waiting for a few other bits and peice to arrive. smaller items were much cheaper on amazon.

I pray to the many jesuses that this 8600k is a good overclocker
I got a golden chip I think. I am 24.7 365 5.2ghz at 1.425vcore avx 0 and LLC mode 4 on MSI bios, and set it to Override mode. everything else I left default. liquid metal on IHS and top of CPU. im not breaking 65 celsius in extreme stress tests... so I doubt I break 60 celsius in gaming. i am actually glad I went this way over 8700k at 4.8 or 4.9ghz. seems like its easier to handle a OC when no HT is involved, and 99% of games i play won't even really benefit from the extra threads.


I was watching a leaked video of the AMD 2700x recently, in world of warcraft it was only using 1-2 cores, 95% usage a lot of times on one core and no other core being used. So i loaded up WoW did the same flight pattern, my CPu usage on 1 core never broke 65%. strong core = king. 6 strong cores? Sparta. 8 weak cores + 8 weaker threads? Persians. :toast:

Here's a inside shot, little dusty, but if you look carefully you will see a date too. Sadly their is not output from the amp or preamp although there is from the headphone socket, all so noticed that there is 3 bolts missing too which holds the casing on ( so some ones been in). when i picked it up i noticed it was plugged in and some one left it facing away and hoping some one did not flip the switch on the back ( power Mode ) when it was turned on or soon after being turned off as this typically kills the power transistors.

Anyways,

These have been sitting in my room for about a month and a half now. I was hoping I could go on holiday early but my solicitor and the immigration office here in Australia are giving me conflicting information regarding my visa. Long story short, I'll have to wait until June 16 to use them coz my PC is back home in the Philippines. I had hoped to be back home early April but oh well.

I might sell them if my holiday gets delayed again. It's been delayed twice already. I've had to rebook flights twice as well.

Bummer, I was drooling over that Marantz ... what does the power mode selector on the back supposed to do? Also, seeing a remote control plug is pretty amazing.

TBH i do not like the look of it, but then i removed the wooden case and all that changed haha. Found out that there is no output from the preamp or amp how ever there is from the headphone sockets. As much as i would hate to do it i might have to break it up and sell it for parts but thats un decided and as far as i can tell the output transisters are working so might be a odd resistor or a bunch of caps that need replacing which is expected. O yeah need to find a replacement string for the tuner too but that's a none issue really.

The switch is for Quad output, they use a module on the under side, here's a few pics of the module and a few others.

with this aio I just quickly tested Far Cry 5 and it only got up to 52c that's a improvement :peace: on top of that it looks alright maybe I will pay a AIO for my i7-6700k so it can be all water :laugh:

*EDIT* I forgot to add that the screws for the rad from EVGA has been the most pleasant I have ever used to install a rad with because the once from like Corsair ain't really good even for first install.

Any reason you went for the WD over the Seagate Iron series drives at all? :) I'd love to update my Synology box as well but I would like to grab enough drives to fill the case I have up when I do.. Trouble for that is there's 8 drives needed and then I have another 4 standard alone drives for off premise backup (just in case...) 12 drives just aren't cheap!! :(

I went for what was on sale to mix it up some. 3 HGST NAS, 3 Toshiba N300, one Red WD. The Ironwolf's just don't go on sale much

I think I'm goin withh 5 drives in a RAID6. With two in a synology as a back up. But still not sure
