  1. I would love to give my mom a Logitech Harmony Ulitmate One remote. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IAKLM54?tag=linustechtips-20 Thanks!
  2. I would love to have those awesome Aria, Nascita, Autore, and Dimora. Simple yet premium looks.
  3. Congratulation Linus and to your Team! You guys deserved it! Keep it counting!
  4. I love the simplicity of Xperia Z2 and that skin rocks, love it!
  5. Looks like mine (http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=userpage&username=dfox_mxyzptlk) stopped updating the score since last Saturday. Does anyone have the same issue? Edit: Looks like it's updated now. I can see my 1,000,000 points.
  6. @LiquidBatman, It is a "Kingston Beast - 8GB Kit (2x4GB) - DDR3 2400MHz CL11" and coolant is UV Green I think.
  7. I love to get my hands on one to try it for myself. :wub: Seriously, I love the thin form factor and clean front and 5.5" display.
  8. OMG I won the Gold at Corsair's System Build (Custom Cooling) PC Domination!
  9. @jaggysnake57, you got that right mate. A picture paints a thousand words...
  10. Wow, very very nice! I wish I have seen this before I finished my own build. If I just knew about SMA8 5 months ago... hehehe @Snef, can you please post pix outside case with closed side panel, etc?
  11. I'm a newbie builder myself. I just take some time watching Linus on Youtube and other builders out there. It takes some time to get familiarize with the common stuffs you need for watercooling like fittings, pump, res, etc. Also be prepared to do some trial and error and invest some money of course. In short, you'll be fine...
  12. Thread URL: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/135830-project-insomnia-build-log/?p=1806228 Description: I'm a newbie builder. Since the hard-tube became popular, I wanted to build one. I learned by watching RomeoKilo, Singularity Computers, and other builders out there in YouTube. I called this "Project Insomnia", successor of "Project Nightmare" (my old rig).

  13. I don't have experience on any Android phone, I hope this will be my first... But I do like the look and feel of HTC One. Cheers
  14. Probably some other time... was not too worried about the sata and usb3 cables. I'm more concerned with the usb2s and audio cables...
  15. Hi, Should we use this thread for April submissions as well? Thanks.
  16. I added the Mayhem's Aurora Red coolant... I'll probably add more red dye... Here's the finished product. (I didn't notice the Q-connector fell off LOL)
  17. Do I need to drain the loop first before adding the Aurora Red coolant? I didn't fill the whole reservoir thinking I can just add the coolant later... still waiting for it to arrive. I finished the lighting and cable management... I put 1 LED strip on the left side of the side panel and 1 under the acrylic motherboard tray cover to make it look like an underglow. I will also try to replace the LED on the reservoir with a brighter one to add a little red glow once it has the Aurora coolant.
  18. So I fill the loop with distilled water and run a leak test... of course I prepared the necessary precaution in case there's a leak. After few hours... Next step, I'll fill it with Mayhem's Aurora Red and finally the lighting...
  19. Thanks for the comment, actually I been asking the same question myself... but I did a little digging and found the exact same question on other forum. And they commented that D5 pump is fine. I'll do fillings and leak test this weekend and see... Also, been wanting to do parallel on the GPU for aesthetics but not sure how will it perform...
  20. Hi, Update: Completed Pics I would like to share my 2014 build log and hopefully get some feedback to improve my build. I'm a newbie builder. Since the hardtube became popular, I wanted to build one. I learned by watching RomeoKilo, Singularity Computers, and other builders out there in YouTube. I thought it is easy, and I was wrong... hehe I tried... Specs: Case: Corsair: 900D (I chose this case 'coz I got it on sale and it has radiator mounts ready) Motherboard: Maximus VI Formula (I chose this MoBo since it has waterblock already) Processor: Intel 4770k Memory: 16 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum (I chose this memory for aesthetics) GPU: 2 x Saphire R9 290 (I got mine on sale before the R9 crisis, just didnt have time to complete the build) PSU: Corsair AX1200 (From my old rig) SSD: 240 GB Intel 530 HHD: 3 x 1TB for Raid 0 Watercooling: Radiator 1: XSPC EX480 Quad 120mm Radiator 2: EK Ultimate Performance CoolStream 480 GPU Waterblock: 2 x EK-FC R9-290X - Acetal+Nickel CPU Waterblock: EK-Supremacy - Full Nickel Reservoir: XSPC Photon 270 Reservoir/D5 Vario Pump Combo Fan: 8 x Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition Fan: 4 x Corsair SP120 Performance Edition Fan: 1 x Corsair AP140 Quiet Edition Fan: 2 x Stock Corsair 900D Fans Coolant: Mayhem Aurora Red Tube: 4 x EK 12mm OD Solid Tube Set - Clear Fittings: 8 x Bitspower Enhanced Dual 90-Degree Multi-Link Adapter 6 x Bitspower G1/4 Thread 90-Degree Rotary Multi-Link Adapter 8 x Bitspower G1/4 Enhanced Multi-Link Adapter 2 x Bitspower G1/4 Thread 90-Degree Dual Rotary Adapter etc... Others: Cable Sleeve: Lutro0 Telios Cable Sleeve: Corsair Individually Sleeve Cables LED: eBay Strips Fan Hub: 3 x ModMyToys 3-Pin Power Distribution PCB 5xWay Block Acrylic: 3mm 18 x 18 Plexiglass First set of items (I also order EVGA 750W PSU as I don't want to kill my current rig while i'm building): As I'm waiting for my other stuffs to arrive (waiting for stock), I started working on the mid-plate with 3mm acrylic... Stuffs starting to arrive... Working with GPU waterblock... Planning the loop... Oh wait... am I using EK 16mm OD tube fitting? Since I'm very unsuccessful with bending tubes (at least I can't get the right measurement and angle given all the tools I have except for the Monsoon Measuring Kit which is unfortunately been out-of-stock for the last 3 months). So I decided to scrap the plan and and proceed to "Plan B", BitsPower fittings... Bit short on Bitspower Enhanced Dual 90-Degree Multi-Link Adapter and I don't want to buy a piece and wait another week again, this project has been sitting here for too long now... I will do leak testing this weekend and hopefully finish the build. Unless you guys notice where the shortage that I'm talking about and suggested that I should follow the scheme of the build...
