    Well, finally went through and airdusted my case and holy hell those meshes work good. Nice coating of dust&hair(we have cats so there is ALWAYS hair floating around) and only small dust particles managed to get into the actual case and a quick spritz got rid of them easy enough.

    Now my only problem is getting enough molex adapters or a fan controller to get all those fans hooked up and find some black pantyhose to dust-proof this sucker completely. Still got 3 emtpy spots for fans in it but thinking i'll just throw a filter over them instead of trying to have 7 fans running in this thing(4 is plenty) :\

    Damn summer time and cats shedding and dust everywhere. I miss winter

    Because signatures are fickle...

    Had this PC 7 years, but good point. I have just changed the fans so they were all green :P

    Might want to consider getting another stick of RAM to complete the triple channel. Else, looks good. I wouldn't personally have gone with RAID SSD or LED fans, but people being different is a good thing.

    It has 4 RAM DIMM slots in the image, so I can't help but imagine it's dual-channel.

    Three slots are white, one is blue. At the time, this was not unusual in budget solutions; some 1156 boards had three slots.
    And triple channel memory controllers do support dual channel, just like how quad channel controllers support triple and dual channel.

    Should've cut that ram in half and invested into a nicer desk or even some back support since it seems you don't use a chair.

    nothing wrong with my desk, she's solid cut wood. and will last out a nuke. and I don't use a chair by choice. I find the edge of the bed comfier, and space is at a premium in our flat with wife/kids so this is the only place I can get solace! :P

    this desk btw, has lasted me since I was a wee baby like.. 13 years old. so it's older then most people on these forums!

    Should've added - Corsair Vengeance 2100 headset (the one in the photo is my old/spare ones which are 1900s.. same thing just wired.) the new ones are wireless.

    Unless you're in your... say, 50s, I think this is a little too aggressive a claim.

    Less RAM, 7990 is ridiculous, please tell me you use it for games other than WoW...

    If he has a wife and kids, there's a very real chance he's in his 50s, or at least 30s-40s.

    But @Raldazzar... there's several people on these forums easily into their 20s.

    I would even go as far to say, that there are quite a few people beyond the 30 here. (Myself included...)

    Oh, for sure! I just can't say how many. :P Though I know quite a few in their 20s.

    Well, if I'm going to get serious about certifications, might as well have some proper hardware. Packet Tracer was nice for CCNA, but GNS3 isn't even going to get me through SWITCH -_-

    Humble beginnings of a home lab.




    What you're seeing below is my horribly clunky solution (but it works :P) to stay consoled onto multiple devices. Yay for USB hubs.




    Power requirements may start becoming an issue as I add more devices, apparently people with CCIE-level home labs often struggle to maintain 15-20+ devices off just wall sockets and stuff starts exploding :P

    And this is approximately what it sounds like when they are turned on:



    Freaking 25mm fans.

    Holy hell those things are tiny. I'm surprised those little stubs can even move air to being with.

    They can move quite a bit of air at high RPMs, at least the 40mm fans our servers use at work lol.

    Also, on a side note, we ordered 2x new test environment rigs for various uses:

    Xeon E3-1245v3
    Intel DH87RL
    4x8GB Kingston ValueRAM 1600MHz CL11 1.5v
    Seagate 1TB SSHD
    Corsair VS350
    Bitfenix Prodigy white

    Assembling them as soon as they arrive, build post coming.
