Description

Named because I picked up about 90% of the gear on my lunch brake, also the case has a nice handle on the top of it for easy transport. My mindset for this build was, I need a new computer from this decade...one for gaming, video editing, coding, rendering, & the like. I'll slowly add in a water cooling system, & down the road I'll upgrade my video card. The reason I went with the four year old Radeon 3870 is because I bought it for my last computer & didn't have a PCIe x16 slot, but it was $60 & I just spent about $1k on the rest of the machine, so sue me. If your wondering why I have an old ATA DVD R/W drive hooked up via USB, it's because my SATA BR R/W is still in the mail. But, sometimes you need to make due with what you have on hand.

That's a very vague statement, what's reasoning & what's your suggestion?

It's a very unreliable brand

The psu you have is unreliable. It may seem like you get good features for the price, but it has been proven to be unreliable.

I've read the reviews, I know what I got myself into. I replace it shortly down the road, but I'll get a few months out of it before then. I'm not overly concerned about it at the moment.

Nice parts overall. Digging the old GPU, I think it's cool :) My only gripe; why that PSU?

  • 77 months ago

I figured since I already had the GPU, & I never got to use it before hand, why not give it a run...& give my wallet a rest. The PSU, IDK...it was cheap, modular, & had more than enough power for me. The real question is, why not?

It's just been proven to not be a reliable brand.

you cant always say brand. They wouldnt be in business is everything from them sucked. Look at the models for the power supply. Coolmax does have a couple reliable psus. Although, I think yours is unreliable. There are articles online for this exact one. I remember looking it up a month or two ago.

i like ur reasoning with the gpu, although it probably wont handle too much

  • 77 months ago

I've yet to bench it yet, I'm sure it will handle more than enough for a few months. I'm not too worried about it since it's more of a temporary thing.

"I'll slowly add in a water cooling system" that case really can't do much with watercooling, unless you're running external.

I'm very creative in the area of making things work that really shouldn't work.

So are you going to use an external rad? I would highly advise against it.

Yes that was the intention, why else get a case that's water ready & was built to have a top mounted radiator? I love all these vague statements. Please, elaborate & tell me your reasoning?

  • 77 months ago

That case can't mount an internal radiator at the top, unless you want to mount the radiator outside of the case.

  • 77 months ago

Again that's the plan, my case is designed to have an externally mounted radiator. I wouldn't think mid towers would be big enough to mount internally. Maybe there's a few, but at that point the price usualy starts to go up. Do you just have a thing against externally mounted radiators or something, or did you assume that I was going to try & shove a radiator all up in this case?

This, that, & whatever. I don't do anything really serious, work & life gets in the way to do any of that. I'd like to try a crack at making a few android apps, in the past I've made a few personal minecraft mods which were fun to work on.
