That you were my friend
Soo, I got the surface some time ago from a deal via school.
And I got an washable keyboard from logitech, not that i spill anything, but it has nice white buttons so i can see the letters when it gets a little darker without the need of leds.
Oh yeah, and my q6600 is running again turns out that its reaaally picky when it comes to ram . It will be crunching sometimes.
Will provide some picks from my current system but I will try to get an decent camera
That's what my file server looked like when it started off on an AM2 board xD Only I kept it inside a closet drawer with the rear removed for ventilation!
bolted it on!
Dude, you're an artist
Bugger I bought the USB 3.0 upgrade front ports for my RaVen RV02B-W case only to find after it arrived that Asus in all their wisdom didn't put an USB3.0 20pin port on my Crosshair IV Formula mobo I have more USB2.0 ports than a bull can shit but hey no one will need more than 2 USB3.0 ports:shadedshu knew I should have look the handbook over first
now you need a usb 2.0 to 3.0 adaptor xd
No worries, it's a fact the men do not read the manual.
ahahah i know that feeling i had a CHIVF in a HAF XB, well maybe you can buy a PciEx 1x USB 3.0 card (one with internal header ofc)
THATS TRUE! i never read any manual, Smartphones, computer case, games, etc, im a self learner and i learn quick, but it make me also more prone to do quicker error ... but ya know the quicker error come the quicker you can solve the problem!
My little downloader - Atom D2700, 4GB RAM.
Not sure about this Fractal Design Core1000. Kinda noisey, and I don't like the way the drives mount.
fractal design core 1000 i had one with a Phenom II X4 810 in ... not noisy at all and a original HDD mount that give you room for big GPU, if you use 2.5" (SSD or HDD) for the one aligned on the gpu slot... i used it with a Velociraptor 10krpm without the icepak no vibration at all
culprit for the noise : maybe the D2700 cooler ? naahh im joking as usual
I think the noise is the front 120mm fan. Its not slow, at 1200RPM. It doesn't whine, its just like a hollow moving air noise. I cant so much hear it over my main rig, but it definitely changed the "sound" in my room lol
well Fractal R2 silent are quiet under 1300rpm, i have a 140mm from a Node 304 it doesn't make much noise, my Core 1000 was fitted with 2 UCCL12 cluster from enermax but i talk about noisy at stock configuration.
even my GR one with 11 fan is silent technically (not in turbo mode but im gaming so the sound and music quiet it )
GRone working well? You mentioned you bought that one in that review thread, interested in how its working for you, its more of a Terran Battlecruiser case than my Cosmos's Carrier.
Did a ton of sanding... can't really see the details in this picture but its getting there, I am working with a neurologic illness so my upper back spasms, its not as fast as I'd like but I should only have a few more months of back stuff. I had a tethered spinal cord from my occult bifida surgically detethered just 3 months ago so I'm and working on this thing when I am able. I didn't show the other side because I had to order custom screws for the Rad grill off mcmaster carr. I am at 150 grit and a rubber block hand sander, I have scratches that are visible that just wont go away... Maybe I can't put the elbow grease in yet.
ahahah terran battlecruiser i call it the "Rokh" due to my "old" passion for EVE online
HELL the Rokh can fit 4 ODD ... damn im cheated the GR one can only fit 3
well its pretty quiet, it has way enough space to fit all and the temp of my rig improved over my HAF XB, the assembly was quite easy like the reviewer stated, and the feature for $$$ ratio is very nice. i leave the front without any ODD and i use only the 3 HDD rack so the airflow on the GPU is very nice: never above 67° in gaming (BF4 ultra CoD:Ghost all to the max) on the "plus" side well it can fit a E-ATX so who knows if i will not find a sweet deal on a E-ATX dual proc mobo for turning it into a cruncher (its crunching atm for the 9th anniversary of WCG pretty cool on the Xeon 40° roughly and not on turbo mode)
i love your woodbox ! pretty nice and also im impressed of your work keep it on the bright side i wish you well and all the best for you
another for the road
aaaaaaahhhhh my etailer has the Bitfenix Prodigy M in stock (white) and the black ready in 2 weeks ... darn i have 2 weeks to resell my HAF XB ... not sure tho
Thanks I appreciate it.
and that is one
If its the same size as the original prodigy which I think it is, than it is actually fairly large dimensionally, if you want to go mATX check out the n200. Cooler Master N200 - Mini Tower Computer Case with...
Carrier has arrived.
but then it would be running at USB 2 speed not what I wanted really and as for getting an USB3 PCIe card I don't have the room left
PCIe x16 1 = HD7850
PCI = blocked by GPU
PCIe x16 2 = Creative XFI ( I don't want to give it up either as the onboard sound is absolute rubbish)
PCI = free and clear (but awkward to use due to it being in the centre of the mobo)
PCIe x16 3 = HD7850
PCIe x16 4 = blocked by GPU
I would have thought Asus of all manufacturers would do better slot layouts which recognise the fact the all modern (HD5000 and NV2xx and up) GPU cards require two slots of room
EDIT: was lookin through a box of stuff for god knows what and found an flexi PCIe riser cable hmmm it's given me an "LIGHTBULB" moment
what the ... on my CHIVF the onboard sound was not bad at all (VIA VT2020 Creative Supreme FX X-FI licensed) and in review and bench about it it was on the top ranks
the XFI is close to your 1st gpu ... hum so then you could stick both GPU in the 2 1st x16 slot (since i guess you did that for airflow then having the XFI under the 1st gpu is same as having both GPU together well the soundcard is shorter i know .... but ) the XFI in the 3rd and 4th the PciEx x1 USB 3.0: WITH internal header, like the one from Silverstone (i dont think there is some USB 3.0 card in PCI either)
At the end of last year my old AMD X2 3800 was running on its last leg so I wanted to build another system that better than this one. After much research I found I can do good with a Celeron system with a G540 CPU. I never liked Celerons before (I was an AMD fan boy) but this Sandy Bridge CPU impressed me. I built the system for less than $200 and recycled my 500 gig WD green and the Lite-On DVD-RW into this.
Later I upgraded to an i3-2105 and I like this CPU.
Now that I have a good system I wanted to build a better system with an i5-3570. I have to buy parts on a monthly basis til I got everything including a new monitor, keyboard and mouse. Oh yeah, Win 7 Home Premium too.
Total cost is $836 but I waited for rebates and discounts from Newegg to save money. Some components I had to pay the full price.
EDIT: I guess hotlinking is not working here.

Hell yeah it's crunch time!
since the WCG 9th birthday event is on i decided to do some pice of my PC'S ATM...
it's also because just after posting that pics ... i found it beautiful ... i took it with a crappy smartphone but the light and composition turned out to be awesome at my eyes...
2 of my 4 rig assembled come from a dump EH? what's more nice than putting them to crunch for the humanity!
This arrived today
Will edit post with more pics later when i get back EDIT:
Looked around for my N8 then i remembered i had my bro's Powershot S5IS, taken in 640x480 but appeard too small xD (i'm not much of a photographer but i did my best)
XD i know, but i just got back from work and had to go out again for a test so.... anyway as promised
this is one sexy card
Pardon the studio (my bed with packaging)
Consider a Xeon 1230v2 instead of a 3570 if you want to get 8 threads. Nice looking computer! The 1230 is usually $200 on ebay or $190 at microcenter brand new. its a 3770 that runs at 3.5ghz! Has more cache and hyperthreading as well as a much lower power draw than an i5. I undervolted mine to .850 volts under full load ibt at 3.5ghz HWmonitor said it drew about 50 watts intel burn testing.
