    I don't get why you're so impressed with the view, I had this view before.

    Don't need AC where I live. :P

    There's quite a bit of echo, but I expect the AntLion ModMic to do the trick. Will definitely keep you updated.

    Edit: More pics of Yaris, my berner sennen dog here, but we're drifting off topic.

    I suspect most of us are dealing with shitty suburbian misery in the best of cases. Views of boring streets, your neighbour's bland houses, and some parked cars for good measure. Those of us still in college dorms or trapped in our parent's basements might even be thinking "Oh, Wow! Windows! I don't think I could afford this place."

    Anything that breaks that sort of universal monotone is worth taking note of.



    Here's a shit-tier quality picture of my laptop on my bed
    reading this thread so we don't get in trouble for being off topic.
    MacBooks play "Papers, please!" just fine.



    I left my dSLR out west…my pictures are either terrible or abysmal quality.

    The case though, even with my none modular PSU is an absolute dream to work with, Well worth the £130 I paid for it.

    at the moment there is the wiring for the fans and the zalman speed controller. Eventually though it will be used to house the hard drives, with the bottom unit to evenually hold the WC Radiators and pump.

    Alright, decided to wait until I get some white Bitfenix Alchemy cable extensions in my case before I try any real cable management and inevitably take pictures and upload them.

    Aw come on. WHY CAN'T I BUY MY OWN THINGS?!

    Also, there don't seem to be that many bad reports so who knows... You do kind of stress your rig more than the average gamer, who these are aimed at, to be fair, I think. :P

    My 6 1/2 year old Dell Inspiron 1520.

    Swapped the CPU from Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz 4MB cache to 2.5 Ghz 6MB.

    RAM is 4GB @ 677MHz

    Crucial MX100 512GB SSD

    GeForce 8600M GT

    CAT7 Eithernet cable from the modem and overall good cable management to avoid interference between cables.

    I took off the keyboard and placed some heatsinks on the metallic plate touching CPU and GPU heatsinks underneath, all the way to the exhaust. Placed some weights on the heatsinks to make better contact, but didn't bother with paste/tape. The first heatsink is from an Athlon X2 3600+, the one in the middle is from an XBone 360 and the last one as well. Monitor is there for no real reason usually I take it out as well.

    It runs WoW at 1920x1080 at lowest settings at around 40 FPS, BF BC2 at around 30FPS at minimum settings and resolution, SC2/D3 at lowest settings at 40-50 FPS and lowest resolution as well.

    It's a toaster, but it's my toaster, and it's lasted me this long so it has a special place in my heart. Also, a 180MM Cooler Master cooling pad underneath and that huge white fan for extra hot days.

    Oh dear.

    That's beautiful, but at the same time...

    Mad respect, I love those kinds of builds.

    Thank you

    I'm obsessive compulsive about computers. I can't look at a computer that could be improved in any way at all and not improve it.

    Even for this laptop I was planning to get one of those chips that lets you connect an external power supply and video card together through the Express Port of the laptop, but I figured the whole thing would cost me around 400$ and for that price I can buy a whole new computer.

    It doesn't change the fact that I still want to do it, just because it's possible.

    One of my HDDs kept disconnecting even though I tried to reseat it, one of the fan extension cables weren't giving out enough voltage when being used.

    They should stick to cases and cheap headsets imo.

    This is why corsair modular PSU's are the only real choice. :> Couldn't even think of using anything else since it's the only unit that has fully replaceable braided cable kits. I mean the cables aren't perfect but come damn close to unless you wanna braid yourself.

    Love sitting at this desk! Picked up a new headset a while ago, the steelseries V2 special edition ones. Swapped from sennheiser to mix it up as I loved the first version back in highschool. Pretty rad thus far!
