  1. Just realized I've never posted my living room setup after its completion. Specs are pretty modest, but I needed it to fit inside a Node 202 and be reasonable quiet: CPU: AMD R5 2600 GPU: GTX 970 Strix MoBo: Gigabyte B450 I Aorus Pro Wifi Mini ITX AM4 RAM: 16GB Corsair LPX Case: Fractal Design Node 202 PSU: Corsaif SF600 Platinum Cooling: CPU: ID Cooling IS-60 GPU: 2x Noctua NF-F12 Lowboard: 4x Arctic P12, MoBo-controlled though the backplate I'm pretty happy how it turned out. Fits very well into its d
  2. Moved to a new flat where we dedicated a room to a 'home office' for both my SO and me (since we're both stuck at home since March '20 and probably will be for a while until this whole thing blows over...). Screens and peripherals are all hooked up to both my main rig as well as my company-issued laptop, a Lenovo X1 Yoga Gen4. I'm honestly pretty impressed how far these things have come. Granted, none of my day-to-day tasks hit the CPU super-hard, since most executions happen on remote servers, but heavy multi-tasking with the IT department pretty much constantly updating sh#t in the backgroun
  3. well, the fix for me was to buy a new mouse. or a new old mouse, since I simply got another 402 probably just got a bad one and some part of it died
  4. Budget (including currency): cheapest for desired use case, otherwise not restricted Country: Germany Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: purely Couch Gaming at 1080p, potentially 4K gaming / VR after GPU Upgrade, no streaming Hi Folks, I just moved flats and cannot connect my main gaming rig to my TV any more and hence plan on building a living room gaming pc using the Node202. I'm aware of the constraints of an ITX build and specifically the potential thermal struggles of the Node202, but that's something I choose to live wi
  5. TBO, I was expecting the 'non'-critical movements to happen a lot faster - e.g. picking up the parts etc. Also - CPU positioning is much easier with an LGA socket. Nonetheless, the thing can churn out assembled boards all day every day, and all the precision and speed is pretty much only an issue of configuration. Also, impressive to see how easy a prototype 'arm' and mount can be made for these things.
  6. Not sold on that one. I know, it's not all form follows function here, but given that even the reference design uses 100mm or even larger fans - why TF do you design a card thats a good 3cm / over an inch higher than the PCI Slot brackets and still put measly 92mm fans on it? its not like they did not have the space, given the height / width of the card? Sure, you can't judge a cooler by its cover looks, but that seems like last years design wit ha diffferent LED shroud on it...
  7. Chopped the side-part off my old IKEA Galant corner desk and replaced the whole desktop with a straight 180cm * 80cm piece of beech. Sanded / oiled it over the past two weeks and... tada.. breathed some new life into a 15 year old desk. The Galant series really was marvelous - sturdy aluminium underframe and really easy to work on. Really like the 'cleaner' workplace - the corner part of the desk usually was just cluttered up with paperwork anyway and not sitting in the round corner section anymore is also great from an ergonomics perspective.
  8. Since we're now entering week 6 of working from home, I finally did some proper cable management for the Thunderbold 3 dock and moved the screens next to each other (previously stacked). TB3 really is a marvelous interface. A single cable for two QHD screens and all my peripherals. Both screens connected to both my tower and the dock, peripherals and hubs all lead to a 15$ USB3 switch - press the button and it's ready to go. Also quite impressed with my new work laptop (Lenovo X1 Yoga, Gen 4). As you can see, productivity did certainly increase quite a bit:
  9. We finally figured it out. Though it really is a tough one. Isdera Commendatore 112i German prototype car - only two built in total, one in 1993 and one in 1999 according to Wikipedia. Probably the only car ever to have its rear view mirror mounted to the roof Prominently featured in Need for Speed II: All local rivalries aside - Autos bauen können sie - diese Schwaben... Correction / Update: Man, this turned out to be quite the rollercoaster. The car depicted above - with the license plate SLS-CW-112 is
  10. Hi folks, Anyone here able to tell me what make / model that is? I initially thought McLaren, but the only model old enough for round rear lights is the F1 and that has pairs of two and not a single one on each side and also a completely different read end. A mate of mine sent me this picture and I can't wrap my head around it: An no, I don't have a bigger picture unfortunately .___.
  11. I never realized the IKEA LACK table had the perfect size to be abused as a ghetto, 5$ rack mount. Pure genius.
  12. Haven't posted an update for some time. - replaced my auxiliary 23" FHD with another 27" QHD, this time 144Hz amd GSync compatible, effectively making my former main screen the new aux one - finally replaced my old Z68 i7 2600k system with a Ryzen 7 3700X, 16GB Ram instead of 12 and also shoved in another SSD - decided that would be a great opportunity to get the footprint down and also wen't with an mATX motherboard and a new case (Define C Mini TG) It looks a lot dustier than it really is =(
