    12GB of RAM? O.o
    So what, 2x4GB and 2x2GB, yeah?

    Also, come on, pictures!

    I would have dropped to the i5-2500K and used the $100~ saved to get a higher end motherboard. $60 is more than likely holding you back, no overclocking most likely, poor low end parts, and far less features.

    Haha fair enough! I couldn't be sure what your mouse and keyboard are from this far away. Tell us, what are your peripherals? I see the whole computer setup itself in your sig, but your mouse, keyboard, headset/phones, mic, monitor! And what are the posters?

    Yeah, indeed it is. It's a fairly good desk. I bought it for the height adjustment at the time. Well I think this is probably one of the smallest desks you can get, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're needing space. Other than that, it's very sturdy.

    Notarget got them. Mouse is Logitech G400 and the Keyboard is a Sidewinder x4. Headset is incredibly old, and I've had like 8 pairs of them just because I'm familiar with the sound: Creative fatality. I like my cheap peripherals, they do they job. ;P Mic is a Samson CO1U condenser mic and the monitor is Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM.

    Posters are of Walter from Breaking Bad, 2 LoTR ones and the other is from the Dark Knight rises. Crap movie, I just like Bane, lol.

    Thought I was gonna test my phone camera and upload a few pictures of my main rig before I install my Titan and get my RMA replacement for my H100i. Cable management is so so atm due to taking the H100i out temporarily. The cooler that is in there now is a H60.

    Neat build. Are you planning a big GPU upgrade soon, or just don't game that much?

  17. #10737
    thank you, yep , I was aiming to possibly in a month or 2 time get a 7970 or 680 (price depending really), also noticed I havent got a decent shot of my internals, looked better at the time I guess, will try get a better photo at some point, I do game a lot, was aiming to actually buy the GPU once I got that built up, but the urge to go skiing was too much :P
    I will be doing an updated shot of this, gonna repaint those gold 'stripes' on the front, it can be taken off mind you, really really dont like the gold, but was the cheapest variation oddly enough

    **** Today was my backup-day!



    I use those 2 Lindy copy/clone stations with USB3.0. I use this solution for my PC and I really like the USB 3.0 speed and the cloning method HDD1->HDD2 without a connected PC a lot. A fast way for external backups but ugly as hell.

    For my macbook I still use the very good integrated TimeMachine (Software) -> TimeCapsule (NAS, 2TB) + Safe Capsule (TimeCapsule Backup via USB). The only bad thing is the transfer speed, ist just sooooooooooooooooo slow.


    What solution are you guys using to backup?

    So I discovered that my G19 was having some sort of weird issue where the lcd screen would continually blink on and off and make everything but the basic keys unusable so I had to open it up and check out what was happening. Turns out that the wires that connect to the LCD aren't properly insulated and that was causing the problem, so I just wrapped them in some insulation tape and it seems to have fixed it. Cant believe this sort of thing is overlooked so easily, people are having problems left, right and centre and logitech insists that it has nothing to do with them or their hardware and that it's a motherboard issue. So for the next few days my keyboard will be a G19 just to see if it's working properly.

    The wires in question


    Sloppy job but I couldn't really do much short of pulling the pcb out because it's so cramped.
