That glass table is anxiety inducing
I had a tempered glass desk for over a decade. There's nothing to worry about as long as the design is solid.

Niiice, I really dig the cables!! I really should've gone for the gunmetal paint but pricing (tax and shipping costs) prevented me that, oh well. It still looks really good. And can be used as a test bench too.

Eons ago (2019) I had a white/black themed water cooled S3.

Turns out the 5600X is just fine. I just had to swap mobo's, ram, unplug the bios battery, and reinstall the OS. :sleep:

I have a love hate relationship with the Aorus Master on one hand the Rev 1 version is the first board to die on me in over a decade and probably hundreds of boards I have owned and worked on, on the other hand it's been rock solid since they replaced it with a brand new Rev 1.1.

This new board ticked all my boxes, Wifi 7, 10+ usb, 2x gen 5 m.2 with 4 total without sharing lanes with the cpu. It's all I see myself needing for a while.

Otherwise Gigabyte on AM5 has been pretty painless for me I have multiple systems I have put together mainly with their B650 boards and they have all been rock solid and have given me slightly less issues than Asus I really wanted to go MSI this generation but ended up with an opportunity to basically get the board for free so it is what it is.

I still have to update my secondary system with something with more cores hopefully Intel's next socket is more exciting for me than the current one.

I built this back in high school, 2008, with help from this wonderful community :). Never had to buy a 2nd case until I decided to build a 2nd system for my gf and now that I'm shopping for cases for the first time since 2008, every case I see has heat-trapping glass or similar preventing airflow on 2 to 3 of 4 sides.

All original hardware other than the I/O hub still work (accidentally shorted it out like 15 years ago by smacking a USB device sticking out of the front). I removed and cleaned the stock fans last week and they still work like new. Sure, it gets a bit dusty without a dust filter on the bottom, but I don't keep mine on casters, I regularly vacuum my place and do a proper full system cleaning every 6 months or so. I love how much room you have to work with and how much my system can breathe from all surfaces other than the back-plate side. With minimal cooling, a single CPU tower fan and the stock case fans, my temps have always been low, and as someone with big hands I love how much room there is to work with.

I'm old enough now to understand that "they don't make them like they used to" is accurate in most cases, pun not intended.

Is there really no proper successor to this case?

also, does anyone know where I can get spare parts for this guy? Would love to get a custom or replacement I/O module, specifically. I'll pay absurd amounts for it.
You could try contacting Coolermaster directly, a few years back they had a lot of spare parts for me when I had a Cosmos 1000.

I have the Gigabyte X670 Gaming X AX and while I like the board the only real gripe I have with it is the lack of the debug LEDs. For this price (and more for yours) it should be included.
And yeah, Gigabyte has been solid for me too, in fact Currently my VR&HTPC is a giga too.
My previous daily driver was an Asus B650E but the errors and instability made me buy the X670.. Could it be due to the new AM5 socket?

Speaking of CCLs, this makes me want to do a UV reactive build again. Too bad no one makes any motherboards like the DFI LAN Party lineup anymore.

Yeah for sure it's the only thing missing that made me pause at the same time when I worked with a hero (early in the generation) postcode was useless would litterally always get stuck on random stuff... The trouble shooting Leds have been more useful at least for me.

Interesting why my usage of old tubes goes under the skin.

I'll switch to hard tubing sooner or later, just need to get a heat gun. I have the tubes and fittings already.

Maybe soft tubes offended his family's honor.

ty. Are you afraid it's going to leak?
I cant attach the fitting backet on the upper tube. And it is a very weak silicon tube. The fitting can cut the tube.
It was a very cheap used, old budget water build. No leaking but it is better to keep it in a plastic tray.

I finally jerry rigged a dvd drive to my pc. It wasn't exactly easy. I had to remove the hard drive cage, and as far as I could tell there was no good way to do it, so I had to basically use bolt cutters to remove it bit by bit, but now finally I can burn psx games on my desktop pc. Sure I could have done it on my laptop, but damn it! I wanted an optical drive in my desktop.

That optical drive is going to underperform. At least it will get lots of airflow to stay cool. The rail mounted ones disappeared in favor of tiny low mass external because they were poorly vibration dampened. Which is also why they got removed from laptops which really couldn't handle them.

As a further completion of this I'd put something non-squishy underneat to fully float and level it. Then put something flat and heavy on top. Your whole case must buzz the way you have it just set at an angle. :laugh:

Well like I was saying, making room for it got quite messy so the underneath area is in shambles. I did indeed put it on a platform to try and keep it level-ish, the problem was my sata power cable was so short I actually had to dismount my ssds (all 3 are daisy chained together) tape them together and hide them underneath the case just to barely make enough room for it to fit. On plus side... at least it works :p

Also fun fact while I was looking on amazon for a dvd drive before I remembered I already had one, I found some that claimed to be able re-rewrite normal dvd-rs. I'm not sure if thats true or just some mistranslation but that would be super cool if its for real.
