Project: Beast!

15 March 2014 - 12:52 AM

Hey guys, 

 

I've been commissioned to build a beast of a rig by a friend. He's basically sending bits by courier and I have to put them together :)

 

Can't say I mind much.

 

So, here's the spec:

 

Components:-

 

CPU: i7 - 4770k

Mobo: Asus Sabertooth Z87
GPU: 3Gb EVGA 780Ti Classified copper Hydro

RAM: 32Gb Corsair vengeance 1866

PSU: 1Kw unknown atm...

SSD: 250Gb Samsung 840 EVO

HDD: 2 x 3Gb Western Digital red

Case: Something Large and alu..
Optical: Samsung Blu Ray 

 

Cooling:-

 

Pump: Laing DDC-2 12v

Rads: 2 x 240, 1 x 120

Fans: 7 x CM SickleFlow red LED

Tubing: Masterkleer 1/2"OD

Coolant: Phobya UV Red

GPU Block: EVGA Classified Hydro copper

CPU: Some universal block...tbc

Fan Control: NZXT Sentry LX

 

Lighting:-

 

Phobya flexlight, 2 x twin Red LED, UV LED strip

 

 

For this build I'm looking at black internals with red highlights. The idea was go have flowing, glowing red blood pumping through the heard of the system... or some such nonsense. 

 

Anyway, Parts are here. The old machine is getting dropped off in the morning. This'll give me something to do over the weekend. 

 

Pics incoming

My father wanted me to have this when I was old enough. 

 

This is the weapon of a Jedi knight, not as clumsy or random as a blaster.

 

An elegant weapon for a more civilised age....

LoudonM's first car

05 January 2014 - 06:07 PM

Hi guys, 

 

I've finally gotten round to learning to drive. I know, I'm 30.. what of it? :P

Anyway, I've got my test on Jan 30th and I plan to buy my first car shortly after. 

I've got a budget of around £1000 and I've settled on a choice of two cars:

 

2000 - 2003 Skoda Fabia or SEAT Ibiza.

My homework has educated me as far as the differences are pretty much cosmetic. 

The fabia is group 1 and ibiza is group 4.

Ibiza has better looking interior

 

They have the same engine, same MPG, same tax but the Ibiza will cost a whopping £10 a month more to run because of the insurance. 

 

My question is, has anyone driven these cars and noticed anything discernible between them?

 

Cheers,

 

Mark. 


Battlefield 4

Hey guys, 

 

So, who's playing Battlefield 4?

What's your favourite map and game mode?

What level are you up to, how many hours have you clocked up?

 

My brother kindly got me BF4 premium for Christmas. Since then I've got about 30 hours played, I'm nearly at level 30 and I'm totally hooked. 

 

My two favourite games have got to be Operation locker - conquest, Hainan resort - Conquest large, Zavod 311 - Deathmatch.

 

I love the bottleneck stand-off's in operation locker and sneaking round the back of the  team and getting multiple squad kills :)

 

I can't stand Flood zone as the map is so busy, I can never see anyone to kill before they get me, lol. 

 

Feel free to come find me: FaceGrenade
