Thermaltake Core P3 Wall Mount Case

06 May 2018 - 07:30 AM

I was wondering if anyone had this case?

 

I need to my computer from under this desk and the only other real option would be a wall mounted solution. 

I really like the P3 and it has pretty good reviews, but the dimensions on the website seem super weird to me. 

20inch (Height) x 13inch (Wide) x 18.5inch (Length)

 

I can fit the 20H x 18.5L

but the 13W is what is confusing me. Most all of my computer cases are between 8-9inches wide. This thing is an extra 4 inches wide and I cannot fit this where I was hoping to.

I was wondering if anyone could confirm this for me? 

 

Does anyone know of any other wall mounted cases that look nice?

 

I was probably going to upgrade the CPU cooler to a TT AIO 2 fan Rad system as well probably RGB since it will be on display. 

 

Thanks!


My Christmas Bender Build

04 November 2016 - 02:23 AM

Hey Ya'll!

 

I am looking at building a new desktop semi gaming PC in December.

I am calling it my Christmas Bender Build due to the fact I am driving to NY in early Dec. and staying in Syracuse for a little over a week with a buddy of mine.

We are pretty much going to drink beer, make beer and make food the entire week.  We are both also planning on building new PC's.

 

I have spent a couple weeks building and adding parts to my PCPartPicker page.

I think I got it about where I want it. Feel free to take a look at the Link:

I did not add a PSU. I currently have a new PSU: Corsair RM or RX 850 something like that.

I am likely going to get Windows 10 H USB if I have to buy it. If I can get it free through College then I will go that route.

 

The 3 Green Fans.. 1x Rear 2x Top for the case in the build. I am planning on getting 3 of the 120MM Corsair SP fancy fans with the RGB mode for the front.

I went with the 2x Samsung 850 EVO SSD's. I was planning on running them in a Raid 0.

Samsung 950 Pro M.2

 

What am I looking for?

I am just tossing it out here for opinions. Any ways to make it cheaper?

I was considering going to the i5-6600K since I think gaming performance wise it's not really that far away from the i7-6700K. I think some people say it is not worth the extra $100 but some other people are like the extra $100 is just a drop in a bucket for sorta future proofing. 

 

I was originally going with the MSI Nvidia 1080 Gaming X8 but since I am not running 4K and probably wont for a few years. I decided to save around $200 and stick with the 1070. 

 

What are your thoughts and opinions on the build? What could I do better?


Milky Way and Aurora

19 August 2015 - 04:13 AM

I had some downtime Saturday so my brother and I drove to Cass City, MI which is about an hour and half from me.

I have been trying to get a photograph of the Milky Way for about 2 summers now. Every time I head up north I always get rained out or I am dumb and I go on a day there is a full moon.

 

Well, Saturday I got super lucky. I saw the Milky Way for the first time and I captured it! I also went to shoot a star trail photo using the north star as my focus. When I looked at my live view of the photo I saw green on the horizon. I yelled at my brother to come look at the photo, and sure enough the aurora was in full bloom. 

 

Here are two of my favorite shots I took and you can view some of the others on my Flickr Account if you are interested. I also have a 14 second time-lapse of the aurora which I thought looked pretty spiffy.

 

I am pretty proud of these. Especially since it is my first time seeing and capturing them.
