Hey, if it works for you and get enjoyment out of it, that's cool! We're all friends here and anyone who talks down to people for what they have is swiftly shown the way out. So welcome, relax, and feel invited to share your PC adventuring! Booyah!

And to be fair, you've got a nice system!
Thanks! The GTX 960 in my system was a hand-me-down from my brother. The GPU itself was, for me, twice as powerful as the old graphics card I was using before. An AMD Radeon RX550. And it practically had no room for overclocking because the GPU fan was practically locked down. It was ASUS-branded, and very basic. And this new GPU I have, is absolutely amazing!

The GTX960 might be older but it still has a the power to do 1080p well, especially the 4GB version!

Finally mounted the Noctua chromax industrials.
Just as i thought there's just a small difference in temps.
The front one is 120mm,the middle one is 140mm.
That brown makes me want to commit multiple massacres.

Nice! Oop ive got the same recycled X79 mobo and the same Aliexpress cooler XD
Honestly it works fine as a secondary gaming rig. Before that it was my Proxmox server lol. 64GB of RAM was dirt cheap for it!

As you can see I replaced the generic fan in the cooler with a Noctua. Probably pointless but I had it floating around.

Nice brothel colors you got there... :D

I know I know, RGB seems the way to go....:)
Even I don't need it necessarily my new memory has RGB, my GPU and some on my motherboard.

Oop when i got the cooler, it came with a blue ring led that turned the 92mm fan to like an 80

So I put an Arctic F9 in it XD

The IDÅSEN is a great desk......except for the fact that most of the top is HOLLOW INSIDE AND MADE OF PAPER AND CARDBOARD :eek: I swapped it out for a solid rubberwood butcher block measuring 60x30x1.75", basically the same dimensions but almost twice as thick. Because stupid Canada means I would spend upwards of $500 for an equivalent product (that isn't even the right size), I made a quick trip south of the border to pick it up for just $179 usd. Lucked out on not paying GST on it too.

There was an arguably better deal for an oak top from floor&decor, but it's out of stock as it was clearance, and I'd have to drive to Seattle. Grizzly Industrial in Bellingham was much closer.

Fastened with 8 knife-thread threaded inserts drilled into the wood, and 1/4-20 bolts where the original 8 hex head bolts go. For better reusability than wood screws. The slab does weigh in at 80lbs but the IDÅSEN handles up to 165lbs, and I don't put heavy stuff on it aside from the one monitor arm.

There are stronger/tougher options but they are all darker woods, and I specifically wanted lighter colour to brighten up the room. What a difference.

Nice! Thanks for supporting our economy :D (and nice lens).

Do you mind taking a snap of the supports? They are hard to see, but look like possibly single angled metal arm?

Are you referring to the legs? The sit stand version just looks like this - a segmented leg that expands/retracts into itself, that splits into three for stability. The stability is good compared to most other sit-stand desks that only split perpendicularly at the bottom (eg. Primecables, bekant). Front-back stability is even better now that the table gained 40 lbs. Excuse the leftover hardware I just taped on there.

Yeah, I reckon you are in good shape for weight - seems like a lot of support for up to 165lbs.

The brown does not annoys me as much as the big logo and text on these parts.

I went from a Torrent to Meshlicious to save space, and the temp is still good for much lesser fans.

High end is still high end, even if it's older. And about that RAM upgrade, good grief!! What are you going to do with 192GB of RAM?
I use my setup to run Quantum AI Cirq's simulations with Pasqal hardware interfaces.
Then when enough datasets have been collected I run said Pasqal simulations against AQT, Azure Quantum and IonQ which require lots of RAM.
Then I use some of the spare computing resources to run Fermi-Hubbard-based simulations or basic experimentation with Hartree-Fock molecular data analysis.

And a small confession, I have also run F@H for this team under "bergerstahl" :D
