  1. The Sony NetMD Drive is really unique. I've not seen one of those in years. It's a shame you can't hook it up directly to the audio pins. Still, it's perfect for the old retro sleeper look. Look forward to seeming more progress on the build. Good luck
  2. Looking great! I love the work with the loop, plus the colour scheme, can't go wrong with the red and black look. Not too sure on the colour of the fluid mind you. Still good stuff.
  3. Good work for a first build. Maybe add some custom cables for the PSU and GPU and that would add to the look.
  4. I like it! I agree with _d0nut, Custom GPU backplate and PSU/GPU custom cable extensions would help it pop more
  5. Very cool case conversion. Gotta love the G5 case. Nice work
  6. I Really like this build. Any updates on how you're getting on with it?
  7. Loving your build so far. I'm a bit partial to the scratch builds but this is a very interesting setup so far. The cost of the frame work isn't too bad either. Are you looking to paint the frame or keep it natural? Look forward to seeing more
  8. I really like this idea. Sure it's not exactly going to be the most portable version, but a great build to look forwards too
  9. Cool project! I did the same with a Dell Precision T1650 and moved it into a Bitfenix Phenom M case. Look forward to seeing what else you do with this build.
  10. I'm currently running an EVGA GTX 750 ti sc on my Guitar amp PC build and it's killing me. I do love the card, but the sheer amount of noise it creates under load is slimier to living next to an airport with 767's flying over our head constantly while trying to play fallout 4 or Doom. Somewhat killing the immersion levels of gaming. I'd love to get one of these cards so I can play games with "hopefully" a quieter card and also look to maybe setting up for some VR, maybe.....
  11. Hello people, i've just got a new laptop and im looking for a wireless mouse to go with it. I was wondering if anyone could advise me of a few ideas of what to purchase. I have a microsoft 3000 wieles but its crap (the scroll whell never worked) so any ideas would be geat. I dont want to spend mega money, maybe £25-£30 or so.
  12. I think i'm lucky, this laptop has bluetooth installed which is normally connected to a second mPCIe port, so this would be better to lose than wifi i suppose. I think i'm gonna get this and see how well it works. Looks like it might be a good idea to build an enclosure to contain the PSU, GPU and board together, that could be fun to design.
  13. Yes i have to get the mPCIe version as the G500 doesn't have an express card port, however Once i have the laptop and checked out the space inside, I'm thinking of finding a way of extending one of the mPCIe ports via a HDMI port and place it on the side of the laptop, if thats possible anyway. That way I can unplug the laptop a ot easier than taking the back off. Thanks, I managed to find a list but only for the laptops that have been confirmed working by customers. Mind you, there were at least 5 different Lenovo laptops shown to be working, so hopefully mine is too.
  14. Hi everyone, I'm new here and I was looking for some advice from anyone who may have used this equipment before - http://www.banggood.com/EXP-GDC-Laptop-External-PCI-E-Graphics-Card-p-934367.html I have just purchased a Lenovo G500 laptop which comes with a i3 3110m processor and 4GB ddr3 ram and a AMD 8570m GPU for when i'm out and about, however I found the item above and i'm curious to see how well it would work. It seems you have to attach the PCIe device to your mini PCI slot inside the laptop and then attach the GPU (AMD r280x for example) into the external PCIe slot with a power supply. I have a desktop gaming rig which has served me well for years, however if this device works as well as it says it does, I may retire the desktop and use this untill I can built a far better mATX rig. What do you guys think? Is it worth the experiment? I already have a spare PSU to run the device and GPU and the AMD r280x is waiting to be purchased to replace my old HD6890, so even if this doesn't work, it will go into the desktop rig. It would be cool if this was reviewed by the Linus Tech Team so we can all get a good idea if this is worth the £36.00 price tag
