    Perhaps trim the tubing? Looks like a lot of extra slack.

    Can a mod change Drunken's rank text to read 'never finishes a computer build... ever' ?

    Statism: Total bliss is just one more regulation away.

    In the 600T build I had? I needed another 90 degree fitting to really cut away any meaningful slack. At least that's how I recall it. It's been stripped down already.

    But the 650D build just there? The first loop with the Koolance pump/res setup was much tighter, but I also learned that Monsoon fittings are PITA to work with. I left a pretty noticeable amount of slack for the dual-bay res/D5 combo, because I discovered the coolant was doing weird stuff to the tubes' inside. (Made them very foggy-like.)

    The loop was stripped down yesterday though. Just took pictures before doing it. For the time being, the 650D hosts P8Z77-V Deluxe, H60 cooler and GTX 680 instead of the previous specs.

    Also, cable management & blue LED's installed, need to edit them first though, brb.
    Three different headphones. Not so sure you're at that stage yet.

    But I do finish builds... then I tear them apart to do new ones... .-.

    I always assumed you built em and sold em. Used the cash for your next build. Thats something I thought about doing, just because I have so much fun building them lol.

    One of them are the California headphones, which I recieved last week because I supported the company on Kickstarter.
    Second headphones are the PC 350, which I've owned a little over 2 years.
    The last one I found at my parents house in Denmark (Nobody is ever there so I guessed it wasn't being used)

    I'd love to, but I don't see any opportunity for any kind of profit in my current state.

    Here is mine:



    I have a Lian Li PC-v1000 fitted with Akasa sound dampening under the desk. Wiring is a mess and the specs are pretty old: i7 930 running at 4GHz on an EVGA X58. It does have a HD7970 however.

    Nah I wouldn't call X58 platform old just yet. The first-gen i5/i7's are still solid gaming chips when OC'd to 3.8-4ghz. Plus they can be remembered as the last chips that required some actual thought/work to overclock :P

    But gosh that's a ton of screens! Do you work from home or something?

  12. #8972
    I do but not that often, I bought most of them while I was in college actually and I justified it as I was skipping a ton of lectures (hey I could watch all the lecture recordings at once ). Currently I don't do much with my desktop other than play some games. I do most of my work on my laptop. I figured if my house is going to burn down I can just grab my laptop have 99% of my lifetime achievements with me.

    While I agree that they are capable, we're talking about a CPU-platform released in 2008. I'd call it old.
    It more than works, but, old.

    That's a good thing to do, everyone should have similar plans in place. Especially if they live in apartments/flats.

    I have all my critical stuff backed up on a 2TB HDD (WD Green ftw) which just sits there in the open, connected with eSata. If the shit hits the fan then I can simply grab it and run

    Off-site backup synced over FTP. Not failsafe, but I may not always be home when disaster strikes.
    Either way, if one has ones laptop with oneself, that would suffice. I approve of the laptop plan either way.

    Well my laptop only has 1 drive bay, which contains a 160gb SSD (Intel 310!). Not exactly very backup-friendly -_-
