    Game Library Ideas!

    I'll see if I can't buy a few of those in the meantime

    Game Library Ideas!

    Left out Minecraft, because I doubt that there's anyone here who wants to see me stream that (feel free to speak up if otherwise): Plus the games seen on GameJolt, from my previous post (FNaF fan games). Lots of options

    Okay - I know it's been a while since I updated this thread, but here I go: Sorry for the long time coming...
  4. Currently considering the following products:

    Not sure if it will be able to pass a full 16 lanes to a backplane/enclosure. If not, I'll have to gut the T7610 and toss it in a bigger case...


    EDIT :: Ooo - what's this?...

    1. CUDAcores89


      Wait why do you need that and what is it gonna be used for?

  5. Not the best video, but it did allow me to see inside the thing (T7610) a bit more. Gotta figure out what its PSU is sporting, so I can plan ahead more. This summer, the E5 Xeons are coming...

    Windows drive defragmentation (And its problems)

    SSDs don't undergo defragmentation. As @Mira Yurizaki has stated, they undergo TRIM. Please have a look: https://www.pcworld.com/article/3188460/storage/when-to-check-defrag-and-optimize-storage-devices.html https://blog.oo-software.com/en/defragmentation-and-ssds-opportunities-and-risks I hope that you find these readings helpful. Do have a good day...
  7. Google's Project Stream has ended recently. Who here liked the experience? Who here is waiting for a copy of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey? And who's waiting for another go?! :D 

    1. Cyberspirit


      I didn't know that was a thing. Were you able to test it?

  8. G'night :D 

  9. Last Status Update of the night. Since the mouse for my current workstation has been acting like crap at times, I'm planning on replacing it during the summer as well. I believe I have already found a suitable replacement...


    G'night! :) 

    1. Techstorm970


      @TopHatProductions115 Yo, I had that mouse for a few years!  :D  For your purposes, it'll work like a charm!  And the battery life is INSANE!  Fair warning, though; it gets dirty quite easily, and isn't the easiest thing in the world to clean...

  10. Has anyone seen the movie this clip is from? If so, please feel free to tell what you think of it :D 

  11. Welp, looks like I have a new shopping list to work on:

    This would be outside the budget for my summer workstation build, so the money for these will be more limited. Listed in order of priority...

      Husky tool set has been acquired. On to the next item...

      Cinnabar Sonar

      No one else has advice?



      Go for the ath-m50x over the ath-m50, the removable cable is worth the extra money. 


      You can find used Wacoms for relatively cheap


      I don't use cases for my 1000 dollar phone *living on the edge*.

      I do have insurance for it though.

      @Cinnabar Sonar I see that - the m50's was a typo. I meant to put m50x's. I'll go on and correct that for the Status Update. The link/search has it corrected, though (thank goodness). :D 

  12. Kinda fun to see how far my PC has come since summer 2017:

    Name                    :: It's a Computer, for Fun

    Processor           :: Intel Xeon X5472
    Motherboard       :: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
    Cooling               :: Stock Intel CPU Cooler (most likely meant for Core 2 Duo/Quad)
    Memory              :: 8GB (4x2GB) DDR2-888 PC2-6400
    Video Card(s)     :: NVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti + NVidia GeForce GT 520
    Storage              :: 4TB Seagate Central 5900rpm HDD (from a teardown) + 500GB Seagate 5400rpm HDD
    Display(s)          :: HP ProDisplay P17A
    Case                  :: Thermaltake Versa H22 (basic model - no glass)
    Audio Device(s) :: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
    Power Supply    :: SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT ATX PSU
    Mouse               :: Logitech M325
    Keyboard           :: Logitech K120
    Software            :: Windows 10 Enterprise
    Now, with dual X58 Xeons (current specs on my profile) :) And I'll be getting even more powerful when my Xeon E5 hypervisor arrives :D One VM will have the same (if not more) computational power as the entire Xeon X5472 rig. Shocking, to say the least...

      fun fact : Hulk was originally grey in color due to an ink issue had to turn him into green.
