When I first built my $2000 computer all I did on it was play minecraft and surf the web and played FPS on my xbox. I eventually realized that this was pointless, I even debated selling my PC and building a lower end rig but then I decided to do it the other way around and got rid of my xbox and bought the games I played on xbox for PC sans Halo: Reach unfortunately. tongue.gif

Sheesh! All you guys hating on cpachris for making a >$15000 web browsing machine need an attitude adjustment. Seriously, it's a selfless act. He's spending massive amounts of money just so everyone on OCN can watch one of the coolest buildlogs ever.

Some of what Chris says is tongue and cheek. If you have followed along or read the entire log, his first hobby his photography, video and massive storage needs. He is merely having fun and enjoying the fruits of his labor. I can remember numerous people giving me noise about three loops and cooling my HDD's in my last build. This is about having fun and being extreme.
I have said this many times; PEOPLE buy what they want, not what they need. If people bought what they needed, Ferrari would not exist!

There are actually two aquabus ports on all of the PA2's....and you daisychain them. So...I have 6 PA2's connected to each of my AQ5's. I use the aquabus to go AQ5>PA2>PA2>PA2>PA2>PA2>PA2. Then each of the PA2's can be used to power devices, along with the 4 built in fan channels.

It's too easy. I won't even try. smile.gif

I actually really feel sorry for this guy if he can't read my opening post and understand its intended be a joke. Sure, its a little subtle.....but unless you're riding the short bus to school, you should be able to distinguish the humor. Perhaps your meds could be adjusted, or something. tongue.gif

Went and ordered those Irwin strippers linked earlier and some el-cheapo Parts Express no name that looked cool. Hey, for $3...... also found a reducer I'm hoping will fit my heat gun, so I can heat the shrink instead of everything in a 2 inch radius. wink.gif
Also got the Akasa PROSLIM SATA cables mentioned earlier in the thread. Very cool, I can size them instead of slop hanging out the side of the machine.

Anyway I mention all this because this thread has been a great resource for a variety of pc related things.
That's what is so good about this and others' builds, they often provide some very good info, and cpachris -and others- have done a great job of disseminating useful information. That and the sheer fun factor make this build a great resource and a must read in my book.

Or to quote one of my favorite Robert B. Parker characters: It do, don't it?
