    Last update before the finished build! All along I never had a CPU for this build so I picked up an older gem to fit the motherboard used on eBay! The great thing is that it already came delidded.
     
    So here's a quick look at the delidded 4770K going in this build.
     



     
    I popped it in with some fresh thermal paste under the IHS.
     


     
    Also if you didn't notice from the last update the GPUs were not yet tubed up. It's because I was testing if the fittings I had would fit. They do but just, with a bit of tube in between that you can't even see once connected.
     


     
    Stay tuned for the final update coming up next!
     
    Thanks a lot for checking it out.

    gurraglaa reacted to LinusTech in Are the LTT edition Noctua fans High Airflow or Static Pressure? [FD Venturi vs LTT fans]   
    Noctua had never told me this but I suspect their fans use static pressure optimized designs because there aren't many performance critical situations where you don't need high static pressure.
    Restrictive grills, hard drive cages, heatsink, radiators, small cases jam packed with components - these things all benefit from higher static pressure and are also applicatiosn where a better fan can have a noticeable impact on cooling performance.
    A metal wire fan grill at the back or top of the case that just needs to move some air around is pretty much the only place where static pressure actually wouldn't matter, but a couple CFM less or more also wouldn't matter.
    Imo calling a fan "airflow optimized" is about like saying "it's good to put in spots where performance frankly doesn't matter anyway".
    So that's why LTT edition fans were chosen based on their excellent static pressure performance. A high static pressure fan will perform good enough in every situation whereas a high airflow fan will be marginally better where it doesn't matter and get crapped on where it does.
    Better versatility this way.

    Sorry for the re-post. This forum section kinda died when we migrated and this post was lost, but I link people here a lot when they ask me this question.
     
    I get a lot of questions on YouTube, but some of the ones that come up a lot are

    "How do I get companies to sponsor me with products?"
    "How do I get more subscribers on YouTube like you?"
    "What do I need to study in school to do a job like yours?"

    Hopefully this story of my journey serves as both an encouraging and cautionary one.

    I was in high school when I really got into computer hardware. In Grade 11/12 and in my first couple of years at the University of British Columbia I spent most of my time tinkering with my computer, hanging out on hardware forums and playing video games. Honestly that's a big part of why school didn't really go well for me at the post-secondary level. I didn't devote enough time to my studies and I was on academic probation after having failed first year calculus twice when I made the decision to drop out and switch from working part time at my local computer store to a full time position.

    I started at NCIX by working just weekends, then I moved my school schedule to Monday/Wednesday/Friday, and I was working Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at NCIX. When I left school I switched to being a full time sales representative at the Langley store. I worked like that for a few months, then I had to leave NCIX due to a contractual obligation that I had to work for a different employer during the summer that year. I went to the President of NCIX with a request that once I was finished my other contract that I be allowed to have my job back, and instead of giving me my job back he explained that I was selling more high end gaming systems than any other sales person in the company and offered me a position at head office taking care of the system configurations on the website. I was thrilled.

    I finished my other job and went back to NCIX to build high end systems and make sure that the computers on the website were compatible and up to date. I wanted to do more than just buckets of parts for our systems though and at that point one of the best ways to differentiate was liquid cooling. In order to achieve my goal of building liquid cooled systems, I had to have access to the right components. That was when I asked my boss why the heck NCIX didn't have any selection of custom water cooling parts. He basically said "I dunno. If you want them, you source them." So I did.

    In a span of about a year NCIX went from selling no water cooling components at all to being #1 in Canada with every significant water cooling manufacturer (Swiftech, CoolIt, Thermochill, EK Water Blocks, D-TEK, Danger Den, Koolance, you name it). Once I'd demonstrated that success it was time for me to graduate to managing some real lines. I went from taking care of random widgets to core business components like SSDs, RAM, motherboards, and networking. Over time my responsibilities shifted and instead of being the one placing orders daily for everything, I was given support from other team members to focus on marketing and promotional campaigns.

    Times changed, people changed... I glanced at the calendar and realized a few years had passed me by and all of a sudden I was a Category Manager rather than a Product Manager, with a team of Product Managers reporting to me, and I was heavily involved in strategy and marketing for key categories like CPUs, notebooks, video cards, SSDs. I was also still product managing some lines, and I was still overseeing the PC system configurations & marketing as well. I was overloaded and it was time to delegate and step back a bit. I also knew that my baby was coming soon.

    When the baby was born, my pace didn't really slow down. That's what happens at a vibrant, fast-growing company. There is always some exciting new project to work on, or a new stretch target that you're motivated to hit.

    That long story (hopefully not TLDR) leads me to the answer to all of those questions above: GET A REAL JOB. What you may or may not have noticed is that nowhere in the blurb above did I say anything about making videos. YouTube videos are not a real job unless you are incredibly talented, incredibly hard working, or incredibly lucky (usually some combination of the three) and honestly it's not that lucrative.

    If you have fun making videos and you're passionate about it, do it as a hobby, but don't expect to get any free products or money for doing it. That way if you break out and gather a huge following, then that's awesome, but if you don't then you hopefully enjoyed every minute of that too. The audience isn't stupid. They know who is doing it for $$ and who is doing it out of passion, so ask yourself if you have the passion to make videos even if no one watched them. If the answer is no, then it's like that no one will be passionate about watching your videos either.

    I don't have any relevant pictures or videos to link to, so instead I'll post a link to the first video I ever uploaded to YouTube about the Sunbeam Tuniq Tower. It should give you some inspiration because if THAT guy can build one of the largest tech channels on the YouTubez by working hard, being passionate, and having some good luck, then maybe you can too!

    Hi guys!
     
    I built my first desktop about two, three months ago and just wanted to show it of. And since Linus and Slick mentioned how they love the amount of Define R4 builds that are shown of here on the forum, I thought I would be join the party!
     
    The build isn't anything special. Just mid-range parts with some custom braided cables and some LED's. But it does its job and I am very pleased with the looks of it :)
     
    The Parts:
    Chassi: Fractal Design Define R4 Black with windowed side panel
    PSU: Fractal Design Integra R2 500w
    CPU: Intel i5 3570k @ 4.0GHz
    GPU: Asus Radeon HD7850 2GB DirectCU II @ 1050MHz/1450MHz
    RAM: 2x4GB Corsair Vengence 1600Mhz LP
    CPU cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo w stock fan
    MOBO: AsRock Z77 Pro4-m
    Boot drive: Samsung 840 120GB
    Program HDD: Seagate 7200rpm 320GB (from old PC)
    Storage HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 500GB (from old External HDD)
    Case fans: 3x Fractal Design Silent Series R2 140mm (2 in, 1 out)
    LED's: NZXT PCI-slot 1m blue + 30cm random white strip
    DVD: Random from old PC
    Multi card reader: Random from old PC
     
    Mouse: Qpad OM-75 PRO Gaming mouse
    Keyboard: atm random mocrosoft keyboard that will be replaced
    Monitors: Benq 24" 1920x1080, FujutsuSiemens 22" 1680x1050
    Speakers: Logitech 5.1, don't know model number or name.
     

    I know that the heat shrink isn't perfect, but for a first timer I am satisfied with the result :)

    I was about to give up for a moment, but in the end I managed to finish the sleeving without too many broken pins.
        Given that the Samsung disk is so beautiful, it would be a shame to have it hidden behind the motherboard plate or in a HDD sledge. Therefore, with some Velcro I found another home for it. To hide the ends of the sleeves I just getto-taped the cables together. Cause I didn't want to open the PSU. It didn't end up too bad imo. The cable management is good enough for me. I can close the side panel without problems and no cables is visible from the other side. The R4 is very generous with space back here!   I would have liked a set of blue dims, but they were out of stock at the time of ordering and costed about 5 dollars more than the red set for some reason. Blue+white lights on Only white lights on The card reader got getto-mounted in the second 5.25" bay, but when not used it's covered by one of the plastic covers that come with the case. The dust filter is just removed temporarily to show the fans.    
      And this is how it looks :) It's simple, cheap and good enough for my purposes. I love it!
