The Pale horse is.....green?

Post  Administrator on 3/21/2014, 3:20 pm

sucks 
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Horsemen_of_the_Apocalypse
 
 
Nope Rolling Eyes 
 
 
 
He's a light pale blue shout 
 
 
And his eyes are filled with Pestilence  wtf
 
 
But don't take my word for it.....ask the many people who have seen both the Pale horse and his Rider, especially during the past 12 months or so.
 
All Four of those guys have been riding for centuries, even millenia, and their Ride is almost concluded.

I'm going to spray paint the case of the heatsink fan Deep Purple in my new computer  Two eyes and teeth 
 
But I won't touch the fan blade itself....I don't wanna risk unbalancing the blade.
 
 
The computer case itself is military green, all the components/fan led's are black, red, blue, orange, a bit of brown, and some chrome  king


I'll post photos in a couple of months  dance

Yeah, I've been delayed in buying everything I need, but I'll finally get it done soon.
 
I already have the Case itself, the Corsair C-70 Vengeance  ramborampage 
 
And the Mother Board, an Asus Maximus VI Hero  rambo 
 
And the HeatSink, a CoolerMaster Gemin II with a 140mm Noctua fan sittin' on top  smile 
 
And 5 of the 10 fans that will be blowing chilly air throughout the Case, keeping things nice and Frosty  dance 
 
And the Corsair RM 750 watt Power Supply  horsey 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm gettin' ready to pick up the rest, all in one order:
 
Either an Asus GTX 660, or the 770, I haven't decided yet. I can either buy the 770 single, or buy two 660's and run them in SLI.
 
Five more fans, both 120mm and 140mm.
 
A Kingston 120 gb SSD.
 
A standard dvd burner.
 
A fan controller.
 
An i5 4670k Intel (I'll overclock to 4.0)
 
Four 4 gb sticks of Corsair memory (the blue version).
 
A media card reader.
 
And finally, a new APC battery backup unit (my old one died last year, I've been using it for surge protection only since then).
 
 
Approx. total cost of new computer, including the new APC unit = 2k  wtf








But it'll be battle readyramborampage 


Plus the case is designed like an ammo box, so I'll also be able to store a few boxes of .357 in there lol

Well as far as the video card I would recommend the EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti (get it from TigerDirect unless you can find one cheaper than they have) just make sure you get the "Ti" version of the card

As far as fan control you don't need to buy that since you can download free ones and the one for the video cards (especially overclocked) is GPU-Z and there is also one that tells you your processor temp CPU-Z and it tells all the rest about your system but doesn't mess with your processor fan since you won't need that.

The Asus sight is where you can register your card for the 3year guarantee and download EVGA Precision X which is fast to do and lets you control the fan and do any slight overclocks and I have it for all of mine and my 660Ti is SSC (overclocked twice)

I think the one cooler you buy for the processor is all you will need.

All of my power supplies are the UltraX versions from 750 watt to a 100 watt one and they are guaranteed for life (you register it on their website after you start using it) and the cables they give you let you mount the PSU on top of the box instead of inside and it all runs cooler that way.

I also have the side panel off of all of mine and a big 20in fan standing at the end of a row of 6 computers blowing right into the boxes.

Check at TigerDirect for all the stuff you don't have yet since I never find better deals or faster shipping and they never have screwed up in my 14 + years.

I like the idea of having a fan controller in one of the drive bays at the front of the case, it looks good, allows for immediate fan control, and only costs about 30 bucks. I'm going to splice two fans to each channel of the fan controller, ie; both intake side fans to one channel, both front intakes to one channel, both bottom intakes to one channel, then I'll assign each of the two top exhaust fans  to independant channels. I'll use the motherboard/bios if I need to adjust the rear exhaust or the other ssd cage intake fan (the ssd cage will have a push/pull config, I'll have the outer push fan hooked up to the controller).
 
As for the graphics, I'll just go with Asus this time. This is my first computer build, so it's all Asus and Corsair components, except for the heatsink and a few of the fans.
 
I'm building this machine for a blend of function and looks, so I don't want to have the side panels off.
 
By the way, the total cost will be $1600 + just under $200 for the APC unit = $1800.
 
 
That'll last me a good 5 years, but I'll be buying a second Vengeange case later this year, but I won't build it 'till later. At some point, I'll use one for work, the other for home. I love the C-70 Vengeance....I need to buy more ammo  Two eyes and teeth


Who can say no to a munitions box turned into a computer??

I built 3 of mine for a TOTAL of $1,800  lol 

And they are top in the world @ Boinc super computers for the Cern LHC and the Max Planck Institute of Gravitational Physics for the Einstein Project (I am a founder and an alpha-beta designer)

But as far as looking cool.......well I guess if I turned all of mine around so you saw the front instead of the back it would look better  laughing 

But I do that because I only want to use 2 monitors for them (sometimes 3) so you have to be able to switch the cable to the video cards.

Get any "make" of video card since that makes no difference but get the "Ti" version since that does make a difference.

No "Ti" and you just have a rookie card  mischief 

http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/test4theory/top_hosts.php?sort_by=total_credit

Mine are actually the Top 3 but that one guy was caught scamming and making up fake numbers and he quit when I proved it and that other guy who is still running just decided to quit the scamming and now runs properly.

My 4th one on that list dropped behind because a few months ago the power company here scvrewed up its OS by shutting the power off and on over and over one day and I finally decided to buy a new Win7 disc the other day and it will be here tuesday so I will fire it back up again (it has a GeForce GTX 550Ti overclocked)

And my 5th one is #32 there but it has not been there all 3 years or all 9 years for Einstein and #6 is my laptop which will have 2 years in the projects the first week of June running 24/7 just like all the rest of them.

Mine actually work non-stop not just sit there with colored lights blinking  king

Bro, Tiger is either the same price or more expensive than Amazon  wtf 


However, the prices vary on Amazon due to individual sellers/supply and demand, but usually, you'll find the best price there.

And, if you have Prime the shipping is often free. I've ordered a freakin' comb on Amazon Prime and UPS dropped it off 2 days later. Don't want to think about the carbon footprint of that $3.00 comb that came from Arizona. wtf

And why would "same price" be a bad thing considering TigerDirect is in the computer business?

I compare the prices all 14 years of being a customer and they ship fast and always back up what they sell me.

Free shipping most of the time too.

Just got my Windows 7 disc today via UPS in fact so I am busy installing it in my computer #7

You also need to know all about the different processors from AMD and Intel and you don't get that from Amazon.

Oh yeah, I forgot......I need to add a copy of Win7 to my list.


Add another $140 for a copy of Win7 Pro to the final expense.



Hey Magic, have you used the XP option in Win7? The virtual machine?

I wonder how much resource it drains from your system to use that. I would prefer to continue using the XP format if it's stable in Win7.

I see Win7 Pro on a few sites for $134 with free shipping right now and I got my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit DVD  for $97.29 total.

Are you talking about VirtualBox??

If it is I have used Oracle VirtualBox 24/7 since March 1st 2011 on XP Pro and Win7 (and for a while on Win8 and 8.1)

Of course that is a free program and you can get the version for any OS old or new.

Just make sure you get the right version of Win7 to work with your new pc (X64 the 64 bit and the same when you d/l VirtualBox along with the VB Extension Pack )

Ok, I'm gonna do that, I'll get the XP version so I can continue using my old Frontpage software for the BC website, plus I want to keep using the XP format daily, anyway.
 
But tell me, when I'm running XP in Virtual Box in Win 7, do I need separate antivirus for the virtual XP?
 
What about Windows Updates? I imagine I won't be able to download any updates while in XP mode, right?

Also, what's your guess as to how much resources the virtual software uses....memory, GPU, ect.

Microsoft calls it "Windows XP Mode".

Sounds like you don't need a third party download to run Windows as XP in Win7.

No more XP updates are needed so don't bother doing any the last couple days since they don't help anything.

I use the VB on all 7 of mine for the CERN LHC tests and it runs milliions of them and it even works fine on my old XP Pro X86 32 bit pc's that can only use about 4GB ram no matter how much you plug in.

I do use more RAM on my X64's but that is not needed for the VB and I used to run double tasks using VB and Einstein GPU tasks at the same time on all of them with no problems and I don't even have any fancy cooling but I do use GPU-Z the free program to use to show you the clock speeds and temp of the video card so you have an idea how hot it is and mine run at 60C or lower on the main 6 but my laptop does even more work 24/7 at 83C with no problems.

I use the EVGA Precision X free program to also set the fan speeds on the video cards and do extra overclocking or voltage settings and the program will work on other cards beside EVGAs since I use it on my 550Ti "Gigabyte" card too.
