    You built it wrong

    Jk, looks nice. Specs?

    Your video card is too damn bright!

    Oh you gotta show me your IC-Factory

    I'd really like to invest into consumer grade IC-Production

    And where did you get the schematics? Did you reverse engineer them?
  • 2
    @JustAnotherDevv well done!

    You have the same build as me but just a few generations ahead on the CPU, good to see others go for the i5 and not the i7.

    Also I bloody love that case!

    @groenkek it turns out that building means different things in different circles :P but yeah, designing the circuits and manufacturing them would actually be really cool! Unfortunately that's not really something that consumers can do on their own.. or, anyone but a chipmaker for that matter. And the schematics for consumer electronics often being tightly held by the manufacturers doesn't help either to drive innovation of course, and reverse engineering can be quite tedious... Also, electronics background in your average greenhorn PC builder.. don't expect too much, alright :D

    The case is weird at the front. Why is there so much space between coolers and the front panel?
  • 1
    @irene I’m not sure, but that looks like a NZXT S340. The front of the case is solid but there is a vertical tunnel under the front panel that lets the air flow.
  • 0
    @TeeSeal so... Airflow is near to none with that construction
  • 1
    @irene Well, there’s plenty of space there for the air come in, but yeah, it’s not as good as having a front panel that lets the air through

    @irene Air intake spaces with dust filters are pretty common these days. Works fine, as long as you clean the filter once in a while.

    @bittersweet see the Fractal Design Meshify C case. That is THE airflow case. And it has dust filters too.
  • 0
    @TeeSeal also see the Meshify C case. Imo, it's great.

    @irene Can't argue with that, but it's a bit of a trade-off. Closed front isn't optimal for cooling, but open front is gonna look like a dust trap way faster.
  • 0
    @bittersweet if it looks like a dust trap it means you haven't cleaned it for a long time. So... Clean it!

    @TeeSeal yes it is NZXT S340

    @bittersweet plot Twist. Irene is a guy.

    @Condor if only I was a cute girl 😒
  • 2
    @irene hmm 🤔 out of curiosity, why'd you want to be a girl? Seems like they've got quite some issues that they have to deal with all the time.. periods, odd looks from strangers, pregnancy and childbirth, etc etc.

    @Condor as if males don't have any problems? 😑
  • 2
    @irene good point 😅 boners in public because you're super tired etc.. so fucking annoying!
  • 1
    @Condor but the real thing is a split mind due to social deprivation and probably deep psychological issues.
  • 2
    @irene join the club, and enter the reason why I'm so hooked to devRant.. without this or Facebook, I wouldn't have any friends. There's only a few technologists in Belgium that I know of and am acquainted with. And most of them live too far away to be frequent contacts, at least when the only option is real life meetings. That - socialization - and anger issues when it comes to shitty technology are actually the main reasons why I'm here.
  • 1
    @Condor the thing is I can't stand people in person. They irritate me. I've tried some groups but nowhere I've felt as a part of the group. I am a loner with twisted mind.
  • 2
    @irene hmm, with people that aren't technologists as well I have that same issue.. and even when they are but are noobs, it's the same. I found e.g. the IT students in my previous networking classes to be rather uneducated. I mean they didn't even know what sudo is etc. And with people that are completely clueless about technology like my home supervisors and people like that? I tolerate their presence, but I sure as hell don't like it. Here I'm considering whether visiting a local hackerspace wouldn't be a good idea. Perhaps consider that as well? From the devRant meets in Brussels, Mechelen and The Hague, I've come to realize that I really enjoy having a drink with fellow technologists 🙂

    @Condor I'm not a good or passionate hacker so I will be out of place at hackathon or something like that.

    I really don't know my place. Suspecting there is none.
  • 2
    @irene I'd say work on that self-esteem 🙂 being a hacker myself (in the 80's MIT sense, information should be free etc) I can say that all that matters is curiosity and persistence. Essentially once you can Google or Duck things (at your own preference) you're pretty likely to gain the respect of the seniors out there.. mind ya, we're used to Fb h3xx0ring questions and things like that every day.. it's a huge problem with modern day people, who think that hacking is some kind of magic wand with fancy Knopkes, "FIRE DA LAZER!!" etc. Those are essentially the muggles that we - just like developers - disrespect... But curiosity, wanting to take a peek under her (software's, electronics', whatever) skirt is key. And I actually think that you already have that, so I'm sure that you'd fit right in, no lube required! 😉

    By all means try it out! See whether you like hackerspaces and the people that inhabit it 🙂
  • 1
    @Condor thank you.

    I feel like I've lost my curiosity long ago. Every time my curiosity was not personal, but involved other people, it was crushed to dust. I've learned to not give a fuck about anything as I will be dismissed anyway, so why bother?
  • 2
    @irene not everyone will dismiss your views! Only muggles do because they don't care - or rather, don't know any better. Take my home supervisors for example, all I talk about is technology but they don't know jack shit about it so they always try to change the subject.. eventually I've decided to take peace with it, and tolerate their desire to avoid technology. Not that I can really talk about anything else though.. so there's that. But here on devRant, me and you have a whole bunch of technologists that do care about this subject and are in the same boat.. from what I can tell, hackerspaces are essentially that but in real life.. and with fancy oscilloscopes, CNC routers, welders and expensive goodies like that. That's why I'm so interested in it. I kind of think of it as devRant or my technical Facebook friends in a real environment 🙂

    Always remember that you're not alone. Alan Walker put that really well in his song ♥️

    @AlgoRythm depending on your mobo, the pci-e slot you have your gpu in may not have all 16 lanes wired. It may or may not hurt performance. It's common that only the first pci-e x16 slot actually has all the lanes.
  • 1
    @electrineer it won't hurt performance most of the times as 16 lanes are overkill which is not being used fully at all.
  • 2
    @electrineer I will take a look in my manual if I remember the next time I touch up the hardware.

    Running heavy games fine though. My heaviest are Planet Coaster and Cities: Skylines.
