    I mean, If actively trying to read stuff on the top of the screen, maybe a little, but I keep my work/browsing space towards the lower half. For games and movies, it's all about that recline tho.

    Finished some spring cleaning, so I thought I'd share my clean workspace.

    I have a bunch of photos to edit and stuff to write before I update my build log, but I thought I'd show you guys the latest: Pentium 4 2.4C Asus P4C800-E Deluxe OCZ PC4200 (that's DDR1) GeForce FX 5900 All that's left for Phase 1 is to volt mod the motherboard. The P4C has notorious voltage droop. Even with the vcore pumped crazy high it drops below stock on load, so to get where I'm going I'll have to even that out... in the meantime: So close I can taste it! And while it's not stable enough to boot into windoze... IT POSTS!

    1200 or Butts!

    Hey look! Goodies! And this is just the cooling gear... Radiators: When I realized I was being a little optimistic with fitting a 360 in the bottom, I decided one radiator just wasn't going to cut it. So I got three radiators. Hardware Labs Black Ice M160GTX, M184GTX, and an L Series 240. Unfortunately I was being a little optimistic about the 3rd radiator, and so the M184 will have to be used for something else. Aw shucks! Water Blocks: DANGER! DANGER! We've got a full Danger Den setup, a TDX CPU block, a pair of SLI Tyee GPU blocks, and a couple Maze 4 chipset blocks (which came all the way from Hungary!). The GPU blocks are made for Radeon X1800s, but I will be adapting one to an Nvidia FX 5900 (details on that later). The pump/res is an Enermax NEOChanger 200ml, and I grabed some Noreprene black tubing that I think is what I'll use in the final build. Probably. I think. Oh, and I grabbed a silver coil. I marked out the cuts needed to make room for the radiators. and got to work with my Dremel! Time for a test fit! Nice and snug, just the way I like it! Note the big rubber feet I picked up. I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to mount the reservoir yet (contemplating making some custom U-bolts), so zip ties will have to do for now. The chipsets on 875P boards have silly retention clips instead of mounting holes, so I fashioned some mounting hardware from some fan clips. They work well enough for some testing, but I think I'll need to craft a more robust solution. As for that overclock... progress is being made. Slow tedious progress.

    Is this supposed to be a Tide Pod build?

    Some of em just have old thermal paste on em, but some had stickers on them that someone put thermal paste right on top of without removing. They come off easy now that they’ve been cooked. 2.4c?

    I'm chasing that 1200mhz FSB on a 2.4C

    My Pentium 4 habit is getting out of hand... Those ugly ones just showed up from Israel!

    Loud Fans or Bad Soundproofing?

    Six 140mm fans at full speed should probably be kinda loud. Might want to get a fan controller.

    Do the monitors have VESA mounts? If so you can pretty much mount em any which way you please. Monoprice usually has a good selection of monitor mounts at good prices. Nobody wants to block off their B&Ws.

    Both were hand me downs from my main system.

    Depending on the motherboard you can get a Xeon X5460 running in the same socket with an adapter for about 30 bucks. Big upgrade from those Q6600s.

    Really? I feel like that has more in common with a 1080... then again, everything since the 280 looks the same to me. To tell the truth I picked it because it’s layed out like a Radeon X1800.
