They need to make it interactive with games were you have to pedal to run
True story: was being chased by gang members in watch_dogs and I realized I was pedalling much faster subconsciously! LMAO:roll:

I feel you, I haven't been to the gym in years and don't go cycling as much as I did before anymore, one of these days I was creating a character for a game called dragon's dogma, and when I was picking the body type my son asked me to pick the one that, - putting it lightly - had the most body mass because he looked more like me, hahahaha! :roll:

After hearing that I was looking for a treadmill or stationary bike when I found this gem:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CM9CBZY/?tag=tec06d-20

I bought it right away, it was love at first sight! And you don't really need a monster of a laptop to play while exercising now that steam can stream your games from your main rig! This here is the solution to the obesity problem in America, imagine burning an average of 500 to 600 calories an hour while you surf the net or game... brilliant!
Weightlifting is the best way to do it, just 30 mins 4 times a week full body divided between: bench, squat, deadlift, pullups, row, barbell curl, shoulder press. 30 minutes is not a big investment of time either.
You lose more weight than just doing cardio.

Not sure how you can play video games at the same time but weight lifting is like an MMORPG. You level up when you get stronger.

These cases are all over our place but they only sell Red, Gold/Yellow and White. No Black, but a rare seller manage to get his hands on a black one and grabbed it right away an di also got it cheaper than the others.
Actually that was what I was referencing sorry if I was vague >_<, I had actually only seen the white around to be honest. I did not even know there was a Gold/Yellow one.

LOL really, thats odd...

Still looks good right now!

Seems like I no longer have an excuse to continue being a fat ass:
I'm addicted to this "FitDesk", I use it an average of 2 hrs. a day while browsing the net, streaming from netflix or playing my favorite game (gamepad is a must unfortunately :p), whoever invented this thing is a genius!
Glad to know im not the only one that does this :p. Just swap out for a treadmill and you have what I try to do each day!

cleaned things up a bit but cables still a mess XD (need to get them sleeves and extension), added moar fans on top, guess not so dead silence anymore... (well its still not audible as the fans on top were silent themselves)
Wow, that case and system looks really good, I like this case better now than the bitfenix prodigy just seeing someone else make a machine in it. Might have to use one in a steam box build or the likes!

Oh, man your son fat shamed you.
It's great your finding a way to exercise. Keep up the great attitude you have about it.

True story: was being chased by gang members in watch_dogs and I realized I was pedalling much faster subconsciously! LMAO:roll:
Being close to 4th of July, have your son pop firecrackers during your gang chase scene to simulate gun fire so your intensity goes up further.

Weightlifting is the best way to do it, just 30 mins 4 times a week full body divided between: bench, squat, deadlift, pullups, row, barbell curl, shoulder press. 30 minutes is not a big investment of time either.
You lose more weight than just doing cardio.

Not sure how you can play video games at the same time but weight lifting is like an MMORPG. You level up when you get stronger.
^Any thing with weight is good. The only draw back is its isolated but balancing it out with cardio makes it a complete workout. Doesn't even have to be heavy, you can start as low as 30% of 1RM and build your way up with a rep scheme and stay with in a safe limit. I stay with-in 75%-85% of my 1RM for the given weight movement.

The older you get the more you have to do to retain what you have and build on it. Don't over do it either. Its a process you'll need your rest days.

Making it a fun habit is key. If you dread it you will find an excuse.

I know, it's a good thing he did, I want to be around so I can watch him grow up! You know what they say, kids always say the damnedest things :p, I been using everyday, cycling an average of 20 miles and burning about 1300 calories! That's a great idea but I don't know if I want that much intensity in my workout though! LMAO :nutkick:

Glad to know im not the only one that does this :p. Just swap out for a treadmill and you have what I try to do every day!
Awesome! post pics of your workout/PC rig setup!, the nice thing about this bike is that I can even type while cycling, I'm typing this from it right now! I hope they become more popular and schools around the nation start using solutions like yours and the FitDesk :rockout:

I have ASUS M5A97 R2.0 mobo. It's great but UEFI pisses me off. I can't navigate in BIOS with keyboard like good, old Award or Phoenix BIOS and install Arch Linux. Screw you, UEFI.
well i get used quick to UEFI even if i switched from a ASRock 970 Ex3 to a ASUS Crosshair IV Formula and a ASUS Rampage III extreme then a ASRock Z77 Ex4 then ASRock FM2A88X EX4+ and now this :roll: both kind of BIOS pose no prolem at all once i get my hands on it (no manual FTW!)

step 2.5 :roll:
ok so i received the 290 what can i do i still miss the CPU and RAM ... hum well ... X16 1.1 is like a X8 2.0 so it should be fine xD
IMG_20140612_112444_291.jpg IMG_20140612_113646_761.jpg

a bit ghetto since the cable of my GX Lite 600 is kinda ... hum ... shortened
IMG_20140612_114217_084.jpg

RAM heatsink also received look shiny now :D
IMG_20140612_112415_888.jpg IMG_20140612_113437_623.jpg

some Fan install for the Spec-01 until i can decide which fans i will take later
front Fractal R2 silent 140mm and a Noiseblocker Blacksilent 140 (will take a 2nd R2 later)
top and rear the bundled corsair 120mm red and 2 CM 120 will be noisy but it's a temporary issue

last thought ... i think taking a 6300 over a 8320 would also be a good idea, for me it's 40chf cheaper and the money spared could also be re invested in better fans or something else for the build... after reading and reviewing bench and results of 6300 vs 8320 the difference is not so big and 95w vs 125w is also good

That system is beyond blinged out, a dual socket system with ECC gold RAM and an R9 290! You should do a color scheme revolving around gold like that Ram Heatsink!

Sure thing, I do it with my MSI GT70, a wireless mouse with a extension pad and play normally a game of League or the likes. Ill show a pic once I get back in town, its pretty ghetto looking honestly the way I have it setup and its funny to see me playing on it. :)

i can't wait to get the rest xD its bloody awesome like that but a new build is something ecstatic even if it's a "dead" AM3+ setup :roll:
LOL NIOCE, btw might wanna just go into settings and bump the fan speed to 60-65% max. On my PowerColor R9 290X cards before I put them under blocks I stress tested each one for a couple of hours and bumping the fan speed up to 60 kept it well below the threshold and 65 was at highest 82 for me!

Well, AM3+ may make a rise from the grave yet :p.

I did my system on the AM3+ platform just because I wanted to keep my normal tradition going, it is still a good platform to me :p.

LOL NIOCE, btw might wanna just go into settings and bump the fan speed to 60-65% max. On my PowerColor R9 290X cards before I put them under blocks I stress tested each one for a couple of hours and bumping the fan speed up to 60 kept it well below the threshold and 65 was at highest 82 for me!

Well, AM3+ may make a rise from the grave yet :p.

I did my system on the AM3+ platform just because I wanted to keep my normal tradition going, it is still a good platform to me :p.
well your AM3+ setup is indeed a "No life King" i think you appreciated my "Integra" joke a few post above :D

edit: that post ;)

Unfortunately, anime is only a incroduction to manga. If you enjoy anime, watch manga after anime.
Watch Manga? Hmmm, I always just chose to read manga but I guess I was doing it wrong :p But do not fret as I read manga all the time!

As far as builds go, I normally decide before hand what the theme will be and go from there. Hellsing was this computers theme this go round I built and next who knows. With that Gold Griever, you could do a DBZ theme :D

well that's the case with most anime and manga i read ... except when i discovered Hellsing Ultimate ... quite the good way to go ... after a disastrous Anime adaptation xD

and to not stroll off topic too much :
poll aftermarket cooler

1. MK-26 2x120/140
2. Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV
3. Arctic Accelero Hybrid II
4. Gelid Icyvision

(keeping in mind that i already have a MK-26 but i would need to re buy new RAM VRM heatsinks)

ahah ... Kakarot SSJ3? buhahahaha i need a 2nd 290 ... maybe a sapphire Tri-X black and yellow mouarf
With that Gold Griever, you could do a DBZ theme :D
@GhostRyder also if you want to laugh my next build would have been named Red Fury(Red Man/Wretched egg) if i had a deal on a red/black MB like the ASRock 990FX killer .... but i ended with a blue one xD

well that's my idea but the Carbide Specs 01 is not too wide ... i tested and i think it will barely fit ... now i need to find a etailer with reliable heatsink for RAM/VRM with thermal tape or maybe Arctic silver thermal adhesive compound i rather not use the 2nd because if one day i jump on the Watercooling FC plate train i would like to remove the HS without ripping off the RAM/VRM :roll:

So got my AM1H-ITX a box to keep it nice and cosy. :p

And then I bought some Mushkin memory to replace the temporary Avexir sticks.

Thinking Case and HDD are going to be next on the list.

You could always cut the panel and add a "cowl" (like a muscle car hood).

Working on a little bad boy. Going for an mATX build this time, fitted with a 4790 and MSI H97M. No CPU cooler or GPU yet, but that'll come








Still working on it now, but I'll get more pics when it's all done and pretty! :)

Got a SilverStone ML06 for my mini-ITX machine, which has now been dubbed the "Shoe Box". Only needing SSD and HDD now. Still not sure which one first.

The cardboard in it is intended as a platform for a 3,5 inch drive.
