    I've been thinking about building something like this. Is that just pine for the legs and 2x4s for the structure?

    Just got my hardware in from newegg. It is now all in this massive case. And it looks amazing if I do say so myself ????. I'm finally running with the big dogs.

    Case is about 50 lbs empty. looking forward to learning something new with the water cooling. I love building and working on things (wood furniture, metal work, AR-15s, etc...) Yep. I do not envy the UPS guys of their Job. But they are very good around here.

    Got my case in yesterday. Poor UPS man was out delivering in the Texas Panhandle Blizzard. Any way. Phanteks Enthoo Primo White Edition... My god this thing is huge. I think it might be bigger than the CM Cosmos II that I worked with about a year ago. Here I was about to forego a desktop and just get a Surface Pro or something as my main computer but now... I'm going to build me a 2011-v3 build and later trying a custom water-cooling loop after I get some other bills paid off. List of ordered components. Intel i7-5820k Asus ROG Rampage Extreme V G.Skill Ripjaw4 DDR 2400 16 GB (4x4GB) Corsair H90 Liquid CPU Cooler Some fans and cables Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 Router - (my linksys one is able to crook) Keeping my video card and power supply from my old rig. And pictures of the Packaging (shipping box was wet and trashed but the retail box was in good shape) The Case out with my spawn standing next to it for comparison. And here it is standng next to my old PC for comparison again. (Old case is the first CM Stacker full tower)

    Mountain biking

    Coors, that's a nice Superfly. I bought the first 4300 Trek came out with (Front suspension only). Back in 2002 and it is still a solid bike so I fully trust Treks bikes. I actually have been looking at the Superfly or Remedy as my next bike but i haven't pulled the trigger yet as the canyon in my area tends to eat full suspension bike riders for lunch as its all xcountry and uphill trails. I have the half gloves and i love them but the chafing is a problem after a wreck. So the best advise i got from one of my riding buddies was, of course, "Don't fall" I agree 100% with WARDOZERX and SpeedCrazy on everything they say especially about riding on the street with your trail tires. give them about 5-8 more PSI and you will save yourself from wearing your tires out too quickly (experience speaking).

    EVGA GTX580 Classified F/S

    It time for a little winter cleaning. So I will be updating this with more items. First off is a EVGA GTX580 Classified that I received for some work. I'm don't really have the time to play games w/ a wife, kid, full time job and working on my bachelors so i thought i'd let someone here have at it. I know the history of this card as I built the computer it was installed in for a friend. It has never been overclocked and has worked flawlessly. Sorry for the picture quality, my actual camera is dead. Price is $425.00 $325.00 OBO shipped.

    Gun control

    Just got done reading this. Best quote from Groucho Marx that applies to both parties:

    Gun control

    +1 This is my greatest fear. Only hope is that the advocates for more gun control are going to want to do to much to fast.

    Lack of empathy astounds me

    I agree 100%
  14. Ryu Hayabusa

    Lack of empathy astounds me

    I'm sure most of you have heard of FPSRussia and some have probably heard the sad and tragic news that one of the producers, Keith Ratliff, has been killed. Keith, husband and father of a 2 year old, was found dead at his place of business. He was an avid supporter of the 2nd amendment and had many, legal, guns in his possession. Short story, he was found in his business with plenty of guns around him. Now to the part that astonishes me, while trying to get more on the story, i came across a webpage that is for a certain political party, and all they really had to say about it is "live by the sword, die by the sword" and "funny how all his guns didn't protect him" and other saying along those lines. I'm not meaning this to be an attack of a political party, i know tons of dems that own guns, and would feel, what i believe to be the proper emotional response of the murder of a gentleman that was killed for what appears to be no apparent reason. I just don't understand turning a tragic situation into a spring board for political/personal soap box and making light of the said tragedy. This isn't meant to be a talk about gun control, we already have a thread for that, but a talk about the lack of empathy for a wife that lost her husband, and a child that lost their father.

    Lack of empathy astounds me

    I don't agree with all his view even though, like him, I am an avid gun owner. He has made some comments via twitter about wishing someone would try to pull a "batman" at the movie theater he was at and the like, and sparking a discussion is one thing, but the belittle a man that has passed away and making like of his families tragedy are completely different. I'm always up (mainly watching ) for a good discussion. But have a little tact and "common" courtesy. Just realized that could be taken as towards you andrew, i meant that towards the people posting the "funny" comments, not you.

    Lack of empathy astounds me

    As you can tell from my post count i tend to lurk. so i don't feed the trolls often, but i guess i had enough from both sides. I've gotten to the point that I've lost faith the political process as a whole. These ramblings are probably due to staying up all night with a sick kid. My apologies.

    2011 OCC Christmas Contest

    Its a good ending to a horrible day. Haven't been very active on here lately and haven't even check on OCC in a while (even though its set as my home page ), but after a long day at work, got on to look around and saw that the awesome crew at OCC are, again, giving away tons of amazing stuff. Thanks to OCC and the sponsers for granting me just a little ray of sunshine on a cold and long day. As always, OCC rocks. Ryu
  19. I thought I was going insane. I forgot about the flood but didn't realize that all the companies would try and rip us consumers off. I was checking the price for a build I have planned for in December and was astounded at the price of the drives. the cheapest 1TB drive on Newegg is over $120, that same drive was less than 60 last time i check about 3 weeks ago. I've never had Best Buy beat the prices on Newegg or Tiger Direct. At least now I know.

  21. okay guys i'm needing some help but i'm going to be in class so i'll respond tomorrow to any questions. I have a user who's computer is randomly restarting and looking at the Event Logs it just states Error from Source DCOM and with an event ID of 10016. I've looked all over google and all of them just want me to download some other crap to fix. I have fixed this issue in the past without having to download anything but my brain is completely fried and i cannot remember how i did it. Please of great people of the OCC community, help me. Thank you. Ryu

    Poll: What is/are your next upgrade path(s)?

    Video card, monitor and a SSD because i'm runniing of the integraded graphics card on the 890GX and still rolling a large CRT monitor thats about 12 years old.
  23. Okay, so I got to brag/vent/run around screaming like a girl for a bit. I've been stuck at a dead end job for the past 5 years at the helpdesk for a large company (subsidary of the evil company that had to be bailed out w/ BILLIONS of dollars of the taxpayers money). Well i've been hating my job for a very long time but stuck w/ it because there are not many (hell there are none) IT jobs where I am at and because I have bills to pay. Well a buddy of mine from work got a call from a good friend wanting him to be involved on the restructuring of a local bank's IT department. Well he gave the hiring manager my resume' and after 3 weeks, 3 long interviews, 2 broken ribs (my fault), and a crap ton of stress on my part, I got to do the thing that I have been dreaming to do for 4 1/2 years, turn in my two weeks notice. I hand delivered it to my HR rep and emailed it to my manager (who 1500 miles away). I am now officially a short-timer here and will start my new Junior Admin job in two weeks. I know none of you probably care but I'm to damn excited to not say anything.

    To excited to keep it contained

    I'm not sure either and I was there. I must be full of grace and coordination. However, my roommate, who saw the whole said, said it was quite funny (until I didn't get up).

    To excited to keep it contained

    Long story short, climbing over a couch instead of moving it is not a good idea. Especially when its the round part of a sectional. They tend to tip and the only thing I had to break my fall was the door knob. Like I said, my fault.
