Geez. You guys are spoilt with Windows. Imagine not having a desktop, and just a flashing cursor...
I never tweaked the C64 But I sure as hell played with one!
When DOS was prevalent in the 80's, and you built custom PC's, you'd have to write the AUTOEXEC file yourself just to get into the OS.
Loads of fun. I don't even think C++ existed back then. Maybe just new...I do remember Windows not existing.
PC's have come a long way...and yet they do so little still... Drivers used to be a few lines of code. Now we are into millions. And they are still just as bloody noisy!
I really want a completely passive PC.
Ehm, in the 80's, that's when I was made. I think I didn't touch a computer in the 80's, maybe very late 80's, and in that case it was a C64
IIRC, it was just a couple of years between DOS being released and C++ appeared.
Uh, yeah...it's not like I was that old, nor was there internet. The exposure to new tech came through TV ads, and magazines. You know..pre-cd's...
I don't think many people in my area even really knew C++ till almost the 90's...
only a month damn get it off the floor you'll only need to clean it twice a year then
autoexec.bat and config.sys ahhhh i remember those days well oooo i had an gui back then( well sorta gui) xfig gold i think it was called
here's a few pics of the system as it stands, the light sux down here in my basement and i think my nikon is on the fritz but whatever lol
first PC i ever had a hands on with was an Apple Acorn yummy green screen and 5.25" floppy's
lookin good exodus
yeah working on at, it's messy in the back, lots of fan wires.. thoughts are that it doesn't really matter if it's clean, as long as the case panel goes on.. i tried to clean it up, it looks worse lol.
here's a few more with the camera sorta worked out, i think my gf changed all the settings on me... horrible lol, i'm a nub with my dslr, it took forever to get that set up.
Well I like the color on your pix, they're nice!
thanx, it's not a very nice dslr, just a nikon d3000, prolly cost me 550 at bestbuy a few months ago, i just wanted something other than a point and shoot, it's interesting, i just haven't put much time into learning much about it, really should though.
So your rear 140mm is pulling air in, are the rad fans pushing out?
they are, the corsair obsidian 800d only pulls air in through the bottom 140mm fan, when the case window is on, there is a log of suction on the fans(enough to slow them down with the vacumm it creates, so i turned that fan around to help up air in the case, so air from the bottom feeds the video cards and the rad, and the fan on the back helps feed the rad.
anyone brave enough to boot with this much power?
sure, if i lived on Pluto
do it, i dare you.
I bet during our lifetime those number will become possible - if the companies stop only making more cores with every generation. Man I mean WTF do you do with 20 core CPUs - isnt it more powerful to make more MHZ?
Cache design holds back frequencies(Note that the 8GHZ barrier has held for many years now). In such a way I think Intel and AMD's chips could scale a bit better if they had a bit more L3 to keep the cores fed. But I also think that's one of the biggest reasons for Intel's hotter chips(larger cache), besides them requiring a bit more current.
Were at a point in CPU manufacturing where more speed really isn't needed right now. With CPU's such at the i7, it's more then enough for any consumer.(hell even an old Core 2 is), no point in making CPU's at 11Ghz if it's not going to be utilized by the majority(plus the hassle in finding how to cool it). All they really need to focus on is pushing out new architectures right now. Having more cores is always welcome and at this point, it would seem like the logical thing to do.
Yeah the back of mine was a nest untill I got some new FN181 LED fans and as I looked at it I thought blurk I don't like that so did a little tidying up thrrew on a few cabble ties and tada
Its really the cleanest backside of a rig I have seen so far - Gratz for this job
