Just picked up a new headset for my PC, I'm still in work so haven't been able to try them out but the unboxing experience is pretty much the best I've seen on a headset. I also only paid €90 as gamestop had a sale on all hyperx products

I have to agree with Nocte. The VS are not very good PSUs and that is one of the older models as well. I'd recommend you return it if you can. Just trying to save you some trouble and headache down the road.

Ram upgrade for the ThinkPad T410 which I've decided to keep instead of the SL410 and just replace the busted keyboard.

Not trying to spoil your fun, but, yeah... Not a good buy. While not a fire hazard, it's still not worth buying these days. The orange label VS550 is a 5-6 years old low budget unit and has been discontinued for a while. If you can, return it to where you bought it from (amazon?) and look at getting something else. The newer grey label VS which replaced the orange label one would be a slightly better pick, but I'm sure you could probably get some better stuff for around 40 pounds like the Be Quiet System Power 9 or preferably even the Pure Power 11 400w. 
If you do want to swap if for something else send me a PM and I'll be able to give you some more help or post in the PSU section.

I'll be the one to say it: A green label CXM would have been a better buy.

 

Then again, apparently both of mine are godtier and apparently Just Work™ (aside from the fans getting obnoxious about 6 months in for both).

Beside some boring stuff like under 10 mOhm ESR electrolytic capacitors some of these:

Picked up a asus x79 rampage gene for 250$ with a I7 3930K and deep cool heat sink.

Not a bad deal seeing that the x79 rampage gene sells for around 250$ by it self. I'll sell the cooler and i7 making it a 150$ deal. Sweet.

Ok, stupid question maybe, but why would anyone buy a relatively old board and CPU for the around same price as something like a ryzen 5 2600 and a good b450 motherboard?

Basically components for a legit mining rig I’m building. My past ones were just regular PC cases Frankenstein’d with a bunch a GPUs, looked messy.

The items in the anti static bags are GPUs risers and the Hercules is a 1600w PSU!

Because a Ryzen 2600 would be slower then a x79 system with a overclocked 8 or 12 core Xeon with faster quad channel ddr3 ran.

Maybe comparing a golden Ivy Bridge to an average 2600. Otherwise, the IPC deficit of a chip like the E5-1680 V2 puts it behind the 2600 for everything other than all core performance (and in that case, the difference is pathetic).

 

The minuscule gain in all core is not worth the trade off in single core or quad core performance, or limiting the user to a dead platform.

 

 

 

And quad channel DDR3 on an older platform, on a Xeon, isn't going to beat out dual channel DDR4 on a far more current platform in most tasks. That becomes especially true if we're resorting to overclocking to get a decrepit system to just shy of parity of a mid end system.

Unless you're an enthusiast that likes old and retro components, need specific features of the platform, or what you're buying is genuinely more powerful (not the case here), you shouldn't.

I bought... a tool... that'll let me use my VCR with my new capture card.

That reminds me, I need to capture a couple of videos to hold my channel over while that ships.

Going back to PS4 this coming week and just sold my XBO off.  Went to walmart and another store and got all this crap too.

20190601_184424.jpg?width=507&height=676


The 2 gallons of distilled water were 1.60 USD.  One is for drinking while moving, and the other one is to drain my loop next weekend for when I'm moving.  Got some Seltzer and a 0 calorie cola from a nearby store.

I don't care that only got 92 bucks from gamestop for the xbo s and few games for it that I had.  I only have room at the new place for 1 console due to my PC hoarding.  XD

Also traded 2 Neo Geo things to a friend he is giving me the case for Surtr rather than just paying me for it.
