    Its WRX Impreza yes but the other one is not pagani zonda. They are my old Tamiya toys for racing (Shadow Breaker Z3 and Gun Bluster XTO)

    i let this one here ... in wait of further decision about on what he will be... :D
    IMG_20140121_112943.jpg
    maybe the GKC will fit on the next motherboard... if the PciE x16 is not the 1st slot right under the socket :roll: and if he is ... then i think a 2nd Katana 4 will be ordered (for the server :roll:)

    also freebies ... a friend upgraded his psu and will send me the old one (old old that's a joke ... he went for a 750w 5 days after buying the one he will give me...) its less than the Deset Fox and no 80+ certification (it does have a 87% efficiency badge but no certification) its a Thermaltake Smart SE 530w ... you know the sentence "for a given horse, you don't look the teeth" (if i remember correctly ) plus it is modular and every cable are flat type ... and it's free ... OEM is CWT platform DSA II (which is, iirc, kinda a good one)41A single 12v rail, it still have the 3yrs manufacturer warranty
    tt530_2.jpg tt530_1-600x450.jpg

    im baffled ... 87% is around a gold, but since no certification it can be a void claim right?
    cetWrXjL5wNw.jpg

    oh well i will see once i get it at home, and after i get my R9 270 back from RMA ...

    Wow havent seen a BFG in awhile. I have a 7600 GT OC.

    Be careful with thermaltake. My TR2 is relegated to testing and fixing purposes only.

    well on all the research i did about that unit, i didn't find any negative review most of them were from good to real good... dunno ... can i trust a chinese review google'translated in english :D

    and i had a Chieftech Nitro85+ 650w which OEM is also CWT and DSA II platform, who did hold pretty decently any rigs i had.

    since im down to a 380w 80+ Antec Earthwatt actually (yep i had to sell the In Win) and the CM GXL 600w is in the server (the 380w is too weak for it) it might just do fine ...

    Nice but why are you not water cooling that motherboard? And what GPU you putting on that board?

    The hose needed is really thin and I didn't have the parts.

    I'm probably going to bench old cards for boints until I decide

    There is no point to put a air penetrator fan as extracting...

    That fan is good as intake fan

    it is not what they say on the silverstone website ;) (and i know they do real good intake fan)

    on the SG09B i have one in intake one in extraction i dont like unpaired fan ... plus : it act like a blower heater .... cold weather? no biggies! : Kombustor max settings fan 100% turning the PC with the back in front of me "yeah baby! it's summer time in the Bahamas!" :D

    update i got the psu this morning and i wondered what my friend meant by "you should receive the psu today and a little someting with"... well i got freebie with my freebie...
    IMG_20140122_110746.jpg

    flat cable, i love it ... (so far the voltage reading is quite stable and i have less power down than with the 380w also since i am still broke i can't be picky)
    IMG_20140122_114529.jpg IMG_20140122_114536.jpg IMG_20140122_114542.jpg

    gosh that Katana 4 is shiny :eek: meh likey! the cable are all in the front of the box and not too much on the AP121 fan and since i don't use the ODD bay, then why not tie the spare 4pin cable here ... :D

    The graphics driver doesn't work though, so it's a bit of a half feeling. :S

    Wow. iGPU doesn't work yet then? I've always been curious about APU's without dedicated graphics, but it just wouldn't meet my personal needs. Do let us know if you play games how well you find it. Also pics of your battlestation man, we requires them!

    Couldn't remember if there were anything important in those numbers, so just blanked them to be safe.

    Edit: But now that you mention it. I just remembered that there aren't. Can pop a full pic when I dump the case internal pic.

    got the server alive, still waiting on the 2 Opteron 250 (as usual ... :D) a bit of ghetto with dual 60mm fan and a rewired HP DC7700 SSF powerled and since no audio and my Audigy 2 is out of order (corroded output damn...) G330 USB soundcard
    IMG_20140123_152640.jpg IMG_20140123_152647.jpg IMG_20140123_152711.jpg IMG_20140123_152719.jpg IMG_20140123_152743.jpg

    APU here i come again ... probably a A10-7700K with either a Gigabyte, Asus, ASRock A88X µATX mobo the price difference between a Xeon+DQ77MK and those make it almost worth the downgrade ... and i still need money

    damn i hate 2014 ahahahah

    edit: cost cutting more i could also take a Athlon II X4 760K and still have the mean to upgrade to a A10-7850K later... i doubt PciE 3.0 would be a major plus

    for the mobo i thought about the ASRock FM2A88M Extreme 4+ because unlike other Bolton-D4 µATX board that one had the 2 PciE x16 (electrical X16/x8 and X4 which is sufficient for a CFX ) in a different layout: X16/X1/X16(x4)/PCI instead of X16/X1/PCI/X16(X4)

    while the mobo with the second more common layout are labeled CFX they can't really handle it in a µATX case tho the first layout pass with no problems, and if i build a µATX budget rig i find neat to have a option for CFX later ...

    my favorite game playing yoyo with the CPU/GPU classe and find that a half priced setup (compared to my E3/GTX770 setup) can actually offer a viable alternative without too big sacrifice in gaming ...

    AND SCREAM FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
    "I WANT MY MSI R9 270 GAMING BACK FROM RMAAAAAAAARGH!!!!" snirfle ...

    ok both cpu and mobo ordered, should come home begining of the next week, placeholder

    also i noticed that the Scythe Katana can only be mounted topdown on AMD socket, what should be optimal... fan blowing to the top of the case and reversing the AP121 in intake and the AP181 in extraction(not much point in puting a 180mm AP fan in extraction tho.... ) or fan top under the AP181 keepint the fan layout and blowing toward the gpu (who has 2 80mm 2k rpm and 1 AP121 120mm blowing on it from the side)
