  1. Happy Birthday Kim Deal and Joey Santiago...
  2. Hmmmm.... this is the plus right? any other upgrades?
  3. LOVELY work JW... I still would love to hear that new amp you built.
  4. if you want to improve your sound... Improve your source.
  5. She'll be comin around the mountain when she comes... when she come...
  6. isn't that really the bastion of the cutoff on the mains and not by the capability of a supplemental' subwoofer?
  7. offering an 'upgrade path' for AL5 and AK6 owners would be a mistake... maybe after 2-3 years of the AL6 being on the market, it would be nice to have.
  8. looks like a 'knock down' finish...

    you can get a basically completely silent miniPC... while they are more than enough for most people in terms of power, they certainly are not Powerful.
  10. Craig's in trouble? Weather or Health related?
  11. please keep us updated on a hard cut off date so we have last minute considerations...

    What I Got Today!

    @babadono Okay E, i just did a db test. at rest and interweb surfing the system is pushing <700rpm and between 36db-38db under full load and fans at max 2100rpm, it's 50db-53db. these are meterings taken directly against and next to the case.

    What I Got Today!

    Under Max load the fans are spinning about 2100rpm... and there are 4 120mm outlet and 3 140mm inlet fans. The aio is 360mm radiator and has 3 120mm fans so that's 10 fans total pushing and pulling airflow. It's reasonably loud at max.... I haven't tested, but maybe 40-45db. This is sitting directly next to it. At idle and Cruising the internet, he fans are spinning at 600 to 800 rpms and aren't really loud at all... audible but no where near loud. Of course the fan profiles are all manually adjustable at all load requirements. One of my personal requirements was noise abatement. You could go with a lower wattage cpu and not need massive cooling or any cooling at all. But if you have a cpu and a GPU with high capabilities, you're going to need some form of liquid cooling.

    What I Got Today!

    The 7950x3d is easily a 5.75ghz cpu, just under the stress test it was dropping to 5.1'ish... normally it runs between 5.4ghz and 5.75ghz. Initially, I mounted my GPU vertically... and it was working fine, but I think it was just a little cramped and it was blowing heat onto the lower section of the motherboard, so you can see in the photos that I moved it back or Horizontal mount. complete list: cpu-AMD 7950x3d motherboard-msi x670e carbon memory-gskill 64gb 6000mt @ cl30 storage-2t ssd 7,450/6,900 MB/s read/write gpu-AMD 7900gre (this might be temporary until we see what is coming out in the next couple of months from Nvidia psu-msi 1000w aio-360mm cooling maybe it is slightly over built for checking emails and trolling forums...

    Finished my new Computer build the other day, after running my current system for nearly 20 years... this one was a bit of a upscale challenge. Audio Codec: Realtek® ALC4080 Codec 7.1-Channel USB High Performance Audio Supports S/PDIF output Supports up to 32-Bit/384 kHz playback on front panel It LIVES! Running Stress Test... +5.1gz @ 80ºc. well within parameters and running beautifully. Initial Cinebench test scores... multicore 34,999 single core 2019
  16. three times... my Vintage hand carved Tiki...
  17. both of those choices are readily around... you just need to keep your eyes open.
