Spent an hour playing cable ninja. Ended up with this for now.

Side fan throwing up air is a 250mm Antec tri-color on random mode so it makes a variety of cool colors.

Lighting is done via BitFenix LED aqua strip. It is pretty friggin bright too. That was the backlight for the LCD I was working on. Was being the keyword, the IC that connects to the LCD panel fried on me so it's dead project unless I replace that board and the ribbons to the panel itself. >_<

Sorry guys, server was flipping when 2 were created and now they both seem to have deleted.

Here we go again. Sorry for that.

so, ive started planning phases for my next computer. this will be my biggest and most expensive project to date. wall-mounted, and with more GPUs than you can poke a stick at!

the construction will be in three layers, mainly because it will be so detailed, and so massive. the wall mounting will cover an entire wall and measure 4 by 3 meters. the first layer will be a base of sorts, and will serve as a mounting plate that will hold everything on one side, then mount to the wall on the other side. the reason for this base is primarily to reduce the number of holes i will make in the wall. the design layer will consist of 32 pieces of acrylic arranged in the shape of my avatar. each individual piece will be made of clear acrylic, painted on one face, with LEDs on the other underneath, and the edges will be beveled at 45 degrees to create a glowing effect from the LEDs, without letting the light simply go through. the final layer will be the actual hardware, mounted flat on some of the larger pieces. GPUs will need risers, but even standard ribbon risers would be insufficient, so there are adapters that map the pins on one pci-e lane to a USB 3.0 cable, then remap them to PCI-e at the other end, so allow for greater flexibility. it only gives x1 speeds, but thats the beauty of it, given the purpose of this computer. but before i get to that, this is the rough idea of what it would look like:

mobo, PSU, RAM, CPU, and drives in the center, GPUs to either sides. then to tie it all together...water cooling!

so what could i possibly want to do with 10 GPUs? folding, of course! most of this rig would be for distributed computing applications, and i expect it to run up to $8000 (rough idea of parts). unless i can get a sponsor. that would be nice. expected power consumption? 4000 to 4500 watts. the equivalent to running a portable industrial heater.

if youre wondering how i could afford to throw so much money away on something like this, its because my total living expenses are about $10 a day, possibly even less. im hoping to start the base and design in a few weeks, and the computer itself in a few months.

Does anyone here want a key to GOG's closed beta of The Witcher Adventure Game?

Not sure how I got a key, as apparently they were supposed to be distributed to people who preordered The Witcher 3, which I certainly didn't.

harbin have uploaded a bunch of new RAM stocks to their website. DDR4, and at £170 for a 16gb kit and £666.66 for Ballistix Elite, think I'll wait a while till prices drop.

Hey Ren of Heavens, things are going good. Don't get online as much as I used to. Been busy and randomly decided to pick up gardening this summer so I've spent a lot of time outside. We need to get on BF4 or GTAV again.

Still have the Level 10 and 4 SSD's and the whole computer that was in the level 10. I'm actually going to try and sell the AMD system with the level 10

I realized the other day all I need is a motherboard, ram and CPU and I'll have a full build going back in my other case. The level 10 is nice, but I dont like it as much as my antec case, which has like 100 hard drive bays (level 10 only has 5). So I'm going to get the i5 4690k devils canyon, probably 8gb of DDR3 1600 to put in the AMD system and keep the 16gb of ~1800 ram for my self that came out of it. I found a used bitcoin (or dogecoin, cant remember) mining video card on ebay, the Sapphire R9 270X 4GB with boost and OC for $141 shipped a few months ago I'm going to use as well.

Going to put it on craigs list and try and get $1200 for the system. Newegg has a 10% off coupon when you pay with bitcoin until the end of the month too so I'm going to try and order with that soon.

BTW, don't remember if I posted about it or not, but I have 4 SSD's in a RAID0 right now. HD Tune gives me about 1,000-1,100 MB/s read on them.

How are things going? Still got the thermaltake level 10 or your mountain of SSDs?

I thought that it was only suppose to show the top 2-3 forums discussion wise, not just a random list of 20 of them? And that has been hidden away for a while now.

That's actually always been there, but was hidden with some style code... must have been a layout change that broke it :<

Edit: All sorted now

Intel (or someone) anyway has revealed some possible specs for the 5th gen CPUs. Hexacores on the i7s with their highest end 'extreme' being a possible octa-core. That is if it is to be believed. Will support DDR4 RAM.

And it only took us 3 years Hopefully we'll track down Gravity before page 300.

Somewhat tempted to buy an R9 290, but knowing my luck they'll announce dates for the 380X/390X as soon as I order it.
