    GMMK keeeb came in today!
     

     
    I'm hooked, can't wait for my other orders to come in so I can build my own!
     

     
    Trying the Gat Blacks for the next week or two, so far they seem good. Missing the tactility of my MX browns but I like that they have a heavier feel, a lot better than MX Reds IMO.

     
    Plugged my sample pack into the numpad, just so I can try them out from time to time, get a feel for other switches I may want to order (did NOT use the included o-rings).

     
    Actually impressed overall, case construction is really good considering the price. Stabs are not screw in so they have some play and in particular my 'backspace' key is scratchy, I will lube all the stabs in the near future.
     
    If RGB is the name of the game then this will satisfy those cravings.

    If you were able to order it means they had stock so it shouldn't take too long. 
     
    BTW These Snow caps are thicc. I'm really impressed with their quality, heavy and a nice velvety texture. PMK really stepped up the game over the previous Ice caps.

    The hype is free marketing. It has massive value.

    Matching keebs. 
     
    The Preonic in the back I've had a while and always wanted to make a similar looking 60%.  Thanks to PMKs Snow caps and KBDFans E-White Tofu case I was today able to make that a reality.

    I wouldn't spend more money on that platform. The 3770 isn't worth $100.
     
    Save up for a Ryzen 5 3600 and a cheap motherboard.
     
    I would say Ryzen 3 3300x, but they cost almost as much.
     
    You can kit out a 3600 + motherboard + 16gb for around $300

    Yea buddy!  The 5150's keyboard, THE "PC" keyboard.
     
    Typing this right now on it.  For an IBM PC compatible part, you cannot get any older than this, unless you want to go to non IBM machines.  Model F's are so amazing to type on, they feel so amazing.

    My old ATI Radeon 4850 graphics card with a big time for its day 512 MB of memory. 😄
    I bought it at Circuit City way back when. Now that really dates me. 😜
    Been meaning to throw it in the trash with the rest of my old computer junk but just have not gotten around to it yet. 😄

    This case can accommodate a pretty large air cooler.

    These will significantly outperform a 120mm AIO for the same money. In particular the Dark Rock Pro 4, it is on par with some 240mm AIO's.

    Wow okay... Tangie Tuesday was a rage fest and sold out in less than 2 minutes. Every time I tried to checkout I had to "update" my cart to the in stock quantity, each time it lowered my order quantity until there was no stock  very sad

    Bought in 2011 some used parts: 
    - Asus p6t-se with i7 920 and 6gb ram (155 euros)
    - GTX 570 
    - Silverstone fortress FT02
    - Seasonic x 760
    - Noctua NH-D14
     
    Updates since then:
    - A few SSD's
    - PCI-E USB3.1 card from ebay. P6t-se only has usb 2.0.
    - Fractal Define S with 3 Noctua ULN's in front and 1 FLX in the back. FT02 had decent cooling but wasn't that quiet.
    - x5650 instead of the i7 920 and 12gb CL7 1333 Ripjaws instead of the cheapo ram. (total cost op this upgrade was 50 euros)
    - June 2018: MSI RX580 Gaming X 8gb
    - Very recently: all hard disks out and into a NAS
     
    Monitor is a Dell u2515H (got it when it just came out).
    Keyboards: HHKB2 (got it cheap), KBP v60 with Tao Hao Dark Blood caps, and a Leopold FC750R
    Mouse: Zowie FK2 (got it very cheap)
    Speakers: Adam a5x (got them at 40 percent discount because 'factory refurbished', but still with 5 years warranty)
    DAC: Resonessence Labs Concero HD
     
    Update to come: Ordered a very cheap w3680. Couldn't even get my x5650 stable over 3,9.
     
    This thrustworthy companion lasted me through my student years, it even has some sentimental value (is this weird?).
    I'm thinking about it's successor: I like SFF builds, but I also wants something that can run Boinc/folding without throttling or too much noise.

    Ahh I see, hopefully you can sort that out and post into the OS.
     
    It's actually not that hard, the most time consuming part so far was sourcing parts, really all you need is a PCB (hot swap or solder), keyboard case, mounting plate, switches, keycaps, and that's about it. It would be pretty easy for you haha. 
     
    @Eschew has a great post on this, it goes in great detail and covers everything you could possibly need to know.
     
    Yeah they definitely screwed themselves over. Yeah playing around with the hardware is very fun, I've gotten really into it over the past 2 years.

    Hi all, I mentioned I was going to throw up a post on my racing/flight sim arcade from a Crazy Taxi sit down. This has been painted red, hypermarquee installed. All marquees are custom. Dashboard was hand molded. Fold in flightsick. 5 spot force feedback using simxperience program. Custom buttons for stream deck. Side lcds fold to side and can be played using retropie after switching source. Lots of other stuff. I did beat outrun sp in the video. Just barely.

    Could always crack it open and give it a look but I know the feeling. I have an old Compaq Portable that is at this point mainly a show piece.
     
    I picked this up a week or so ago and been cleaning it up... Ibm pc 365 with a pentium pro 180.
     
    Got it cleaned up and painted the bare metal chassis in some primer grey as there was some pretty good staining I couldn't get rid of. Won't power on from the motherboard though I have to jump the trigger on the psu but it does power on and I get post beeps at least so a few issues to sort out. Totally stoked though I've wanted a ppro for years so very excited to finally add one to the collection 😁
