i have no idea what that is
A really, really, old computer. From where we are now backwards:
Core i -> Core Duo -> Pentium 4 -> Pentium 3 -> Pentium 2 -> Pentium -> 486 -> 386 -> 286
Wow, old...no. Ancient? - more like it. that's like an artefact from another space-time continium . I have no sympathy for those though, recycle and go for the new.
oh boy a PC thats been around longer then me in terms of age.
When I was about 5 my dad bought a IBM PS/2 setup home with a Pentium SX-II and about 4 or 8Megs of ram and a 100Mb hard drive running windows 3.1.
And thats the machine which i slowly built up my craft as a tech as It was the family PC all the way until 98' where dad payed about $4557 for a Pentium 3 setup which was all the rage back then.
I kept the old IBM and a few years back i actually got it running again, but It couldnt do much with it anyway so i guess i threw it in the dumpster.
Kinda regret it a little but It wasnt any good to anyone. It had no math co-processor so installing WIndows 98 was impossible.
It just wasnt worth keeping around except for nostagia
You would be surprised at the value of the old PCs and XTs, anywhere from $50-$300 depending on what you have for it in terms of manuals, boxes and disks, accessories, etc. Basically, anything before a Pentium that works can catch a few bucks (as odd as it sounds).
I wish I kept my 286
Had to gut the 800D to fit these RX360's. The RX120 just barely fit, in fact there are no screws holding it in place. It's sandwiched in between the RX360 and the top of the PCI bay.
radiator fest, is a bit overkill but i like it anyway...
A little OTT for a 3770k and tri-fired 7950s. what are you cooling? Japan's nuclear power station?
Always nice to have a "little" headroom when it comes to cooling guys
If you follow the youtube channel : Singularity Comptuers
When he mention what temps he get with all that cooling power is ridicolous...
He get the same temps as you can have with single 3x120mm radiators CPU/GPU loop, especially on graphics card 40 to 45 degress on gaming.
You can achieve those temps with a 120mm radiator without problem on GPU's. ( see ASUS ARES)
Same story with CPU's he get usually just 57 degrees on load stock with 4x120mm/2x120mm/1x120mm plus 2 meters long reservoirs and crazy powerfull high pressure pumps often two of them.
Yea i wish i kept myne too...
I do a lot of computer work on my bed too, we are in need of a decent work bench hahah!
I know I lost a motherboard standoff screw so im one down on my board ahaha!
Bought a Titan for some reason i'm not sure, i just couldn't resist anymore.
This is a mess just now, i had to use some spare random white tubing to make a big ugly line past the gpu and get straight to the rad until i get a block for the gpu.
Once i get a nice block then it will be back to normal -
I'm also going to put some white acrylic over the side of the drive bays to make it look cleaner.
Look at what arrived from Taiwan from the Gigabyte-TPU contest! Only took 4 days to get here too.
Were you running like a white solution before? Because that light blue looks sooooo much better!
Ha!, yeah, it's actually pastel White with Emerald Green dye... i'm not the best with the camera so it's my fault - i really need to take five minutes and figure out the settings.
I've got my 680 with block up for sale on another forum atm, i just hope there is a buyer so i can numb the pain of this titan!... and i'm not a rich guy.
and if you really have time for 4 pages: http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/guides/2010/02/15/better-photographs-of-your-mod/
Thanks ste2425 but i cba with that either lol!, i'm getting by ok atm but thanks for the help.
ha that's alright its only lil' old us that have to look at your photos.
LOL, i mean i am having to take at least ten shots to one that i think is ok with changing settings etc ... it's a numbers game! - i get a decent shot eventually.
The new mobo has moved into its new house. Ye' olde' 570 is back in the black box because I'm using the orange box (<- you see what I did there) the most so I moved the 580 into it. The good news was that I hardly had to change any of the cable routing because most of the ports were in the similar locations to the older UD5. Bad news was that my blue ram that matched the UD5, now looks out of place on the G1.Sniper but I don't mind much now because my case doesn't have a window.
Here is the 580 in the orange box
Huge thanks again to TPU and Gigabyte for an awesome giveaway!
