    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.

    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.

    The 2950's I got brand new from some guy for $40 each, couldn't say no to that. These will be handy for years to come

    The 3560's I bought used (still in good shape though) because new ones tend to cost anywhere from $600-2000 lol.

    Eh they're not all that loud on their own, only when you have 5+ going at the same time. I may eventually end up moving them into the garage, especially in summer.

    TBH it's easy to see why Cisco (or really any vendor) go for such cooling:
    > These are designed for industry use, locked-away in cabinets (or datacenters) where noise is irrelevant.
    > They are made to be stacked vertically with very little room between, so the only area to place fans is on the sides...and these devices are only 30-40mm thick.

    My computer has gone through some updates since last time.









    internal updates was to a 780, using cuda or nvidia encoding tools for a few things, but its much quieter too.
    And also thats a corsair H105 in a kinda push pull config, those 180 mm fans still work and stuck on some fans for pull, keeps the CPU thats still a I5 very cool and quiet, actually gives me more overclocking headroom but not got into that yet.

    External updates, my 29 inch 21:9 monitor, logitech G600, my corsair M95 is in for repair or sending it off rather for repair.

    Additional updates to the sound system, audio engine D1 and audio technicas M50.

    Actually was about to take the plunge for watercooling, even though I said in a thread I wouldnt, but found one of those XSPC kits that are actually good price, but its like sold out everywhere, and outside that is beyond what I was willing to pay for at this moment in time.

    Is the back-intake a mistake, or do you just value feeding the GPU more than about exhaust?

  19. #13879
    The back is an intake, but the exhaust can either go up top of the case where there is an exhaust fan from that bit or front end of the case.

    Did you edit that in? I didn't remember seeing that
    Either way, which i5? Do you feel there would be value in going for water cooling to push the system or is it more "i wanna"?
