Yes. I was worried about the fan being damaged in shipping and then I realized the CPU didn't need it.

Hopefully next weekend I will have my new rig assembled and pictured :drool:

I really like the Sonata, its compact that it will fit in with my setup. However, as you can see, a HD2900 isn't going to fit (maybe if I remove the front cooling fan, which I don't want to do - its placement is excellent for cooling that raptor and pushing air over the graphics card and chipset).

Don't be offended but how the heck have you gotten yourself in that kind of a ********? The floor looks like someone took a dump on it and the wall seems to have damage caused by water.

nycdarkness Sep 8, 2007 10:16 AM

Get a bottle.

On another note..



This is my "new" desk I got at a garage sale for 7 bucks. I like it much more than the old little desk.

And my cat has a stool to sit next to me and sleep while I game or whatever.. :D

cjl64 Sep 11, 2007 12:11 AM

I like the setup... but what wrong with your LCD?:confused: It looks like its missing viewing space on both sides:p ... i am j/k:heart:

The "kitchen" is just to the left of that picture. That is part of the kitchen counter there. At first it seemed a strange place to setup shop for my computer. When my wife and I first moved into this house, we decided that instead of using the "spare bedroom" or the basement as a computer gaming area, we'd setup in the living room (its a pretty big living area). Being able to see out the front of the house (big front windows) while sitting and playing some games is nice.

That and this is an old house, without furnace. The woodstove is here in the living room. We could probably put the computers in the spare bedroom and use the computers to heat the room, but we dont want to have to hibernate in a bedroom to stay warm all winter either.

Edit : And where do you see a fridge?

I had little stands for them to have them sitting behind me. They just kinda get in the way. Here on the desk, they take up too much room. I'm likely just going to end up hanging them on the wall above left and right. If Im gaming anything important, Im using my headphones anyways.

caveman-jim Sep 12, 2007 08:05 AM

New Internals are here!
 
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
CPU - Intel Xeon X3210 2.13Ghz Cloverton
Cooler - Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
RAM - Buffalo Firestix DDR2-800 PC6400 2x1Gb

Got my new stuffs in last night, here's the :Pics:

Now, which cooler to use? Hmmmm...
Yeah, lets put the stock cooler back in the box. I wiped the pre-applied stuff off the AC Freezer 7 Pro and laid some lines of Artic Silver 5 down.

Assembled :Pics:, with my X1950Pro, Hauppauge WinPVR 500, 80Gb Raptor (System disk), 300Gb 7200.10 (Data drive). Notice I added a 40mm fan to the northbrige, happened to have a Gigbabyte fan from an old motherboard laying around, and decided to add it on.





:drool:

And yes, my PC does have a sticker on it saying "Save The Ta Ta's!" - you get free stickers with shirts you buy from SaveTheTaTas.Com, so where better to put it?

Haven't tried OC'ing yet - watch for my thread about the coming soon...

Stock performance? Excellent. I ran the [email protected] WinSMP client overnight, and I'm getting 2000 PPD. :evil: Temps are 50C for Core 0, down to 45 for Core 3, under load. The noisiest part of the system is the raptor, when it's chattering away, but it doesn't do that much.

Its hard to get a good picture of the interior customization, but when I first got this case, I totally striped it down of everything, and coated the inside with that clear coat glow in the dark paint. (there are two simple black lights in the case for charging the paint) Its quite a nice effect when the room is a bit on the darker side, however with my camera, its difficult to catch the beauty of it.

The old side panel (the one without the huge fan) I replaced the plexiglass to rid the window of the ThermalTake logo. I still have yet to do that to this particular panel because of the fan. One day, I'll get around to removing the grill for the large fan and get the blue paint on it as well.

Nice new equipment there Jim. :up:
