    I got a question what jobtitle/degree does the people at Intel/AMD/Nvidia have to make cpus and gpus? Something like Computer Engineering?

    Any idea how it'd look if I painted the green white? Will the green shine trough when you light up the leds?

    *Checks dictionary for insinuate*.. Yup, pretty much. Although I don't have personal experience from really expensive sound hardware I'm inclined to believe that there really isn't much benefit. DAC is just a digital to analog converter and amp is an amp. As long as we are keeping the signal as un-changed as possible without introducing additional noise just how much difference can there be between $100 dac+amp and $1000 dac/amp?

    That's essentially why I am not spending anywhere near $1,000... There is a point where it becomes harder and harder to tell the increase in sound hardware quality, especially if you have any lower-quality pieces. For instance, if I ultimately buy up the Modi+Magni, I will likely sooner or later get a nicer pair of headphones. While my Audio Technica ATH-AD700 and Shure SRH440 pairs are nice, they are still only 32 Ohm and 44 Ohm spec headphones and $100 each, that's nice, but lower end in the grand scheme.

    I'd probably be looking into the Sennheiser HD598s or perhaps HD600s/650s.

    The green likely would shine through.

    You can probably train yourself to notice the difference, although whether or not that is a good thing or just the beginning of a life of spending tens of thousands on sound equipment you won't be satisfied with is something you could probably debate all night.

    Yup. Hell the guy who suggested me (and Inux/Cheezus) Schiit is one of those types. He has Sennheiser HD700s... in his storage. Along with like 6 other pairs of headphones, including Sennheiser Momentums.

    I do believe right now he is using a pair of Audeze LCD-2... very nice $1,000+ pair.

    Did some research and I think how it works is that because the white layer of paint doesn't filter the light it's still gonna look green when lighten up. :< I would need to put red and blue layers on top of the green to first make the light appear white and then some white on top of that. This would probably dimm it quite a bit. Gonna need a new plan.

    Is it green plastic?

    Somebody in my old guild has a friend whose dad is like that too. Apparently his sound system cost nearly €40,000.

    It is in fact uncolored / see trough rubber that has a layer of green uv(?) paint on top. Turns out that some people have had varying success at sanding it away but that'll also remove this tiny black edge around the font making it look less detailed in my opinion. Would be awesome if I could find an used 780 shroud so I could fool around with it before ruining this one.

    i wonder if you could use an exacto knife to scrap the top layer of green off, then fill it back in with some clear coat or resin

    I really don't understand why colors would be relevant, unless you're going to build contraption similar to the one posted by Black Pearl. I'ts not like PC is there to be decorative, you wont be looking inside it all that often anyways, at least I see no reason to(other then cleaning it up) unless you bought case with "vision window", but I do not understand doing so either.
    Anyways this is going way offtopic, so might be best if we stop here before it escalates. Expect no further post about this from me here, feel free to pm me for w/e reason.
    Right, it's exactly the same thing as choosing between colours because you can't argument against blue being a better colour then yellow. It's all your personal opinion. It's precisely the same thing with computer hardware. For some people the computer is nothing more then a tool to to be used for achieving something, be it gaming, web browsing or work. For others the process of building it and making it as fine looking as possible can be far more important.

    What I meant by comparing the process of building pc's to carving is that they are both acts that give you pleasure from creating things yourself. I mean they are obviously completely different things that require different skillsets and tools but the essential part is that you make something and enjoy the result. It's often not that important what you use the outcome for and it doesn't even have to be anything practical.

    You are of course free to disagree about this because it's not something you like doing, that's your personal opinion, but I do hope that this post helps you to understand that people can like different things.

    My microphones tend to have died because of mechanical strain on the join between the jack and the cable.

    ..

    Note to self: when plugging the cables back in the computer after cleaning it, remember to plug the headphones and mike back into the sound card and not the deactivated onboard audio output...

    Wait, AFAIK the most "chunks" that CCNA can be broken into is two (ICND1 and ICND2). Also it shouldn't take 3 months to finish one-third of the content...unless it's super part-time or something :P

    Reformatted my PC for the first time since I built it in 2011! Had started getting some really weird crashes/freezes that I simply couldn't explain (OC's were always stable).

    Question for the guys who reformat often, do you ever install any windows updates? I'm seeing how far I can go without installing a single windows update...just my antivirus + crucial shit like .Net framework etc to run games. So far everything works just fine.

    Works just fine until you get a virus. Why wouldn't you install the updates, it's not like they add them for no reason?

    Well that whole "get a virus" thing sounds a bit generic, since 99.9% of the time viruses come from websites...and I only visit the same popular (safe) sites that millions of others visit. My AV will dump any virus/spyware that DOES manage to make it to my PC, it also blocks remote connections and acts as a pseudo firewall.

    From the security side I'm covered, which leaves me scratching my head because right now I have over 100+ important updates sitting there...plus since updates tend to be "layered", I'm sure more updates are waiting as soon as those are done.

    There are some updates along the lines of "resolves issues with windows", which I won't install until I actually run into any issues with this fresh install. None so far.

    I'm doing this to install as little junk on my SSD as possible, keeping my registry as empty as possible.
