The Antec 300/900/1200 Owners Thread - Page 392

post #3911 of 4558
Lol, nice mouse there buddy. After you get a new one, get a new monitor too. There are some really good deals lately on 1080p monitors for about $140 price range. Then a better CPU cooler, stock rarely ever cuts it.

Also, we like interior picks here too, that way we can critique the cable management. Its not a bad thing, but the suggestions that we can provide will help in with cooling and overall cleanliness.

If you are able to, doing those "artistic" style photos can definitely make your setup look even more awesome.

Keep in mind that people have budgets and will not always have the best parts overall at a given moment. No need to encourage more e-peen attitude like many OCN members do on a daily basis.

Not sure why you're being so bossy and uptight about his setup. I don't think everyone will care about a zero degree difference in temps if they have their cables managed cleanly or messily.

Who cares what mouse/monitor he uses? Not everyone needs/wants the better stuff. I use a Razer kb/mouse, but my friend with OEM Dell kb/mouse still does better than I do in games (not that I suck).

Sorry if I offended you, and/or h4344. I was offering suggestions, yeah I may have come across bossy, but that was not my intention. I remember when I was first building my system, I didnt have my graphics card yet, so I borrowed my buddy's ati x1900 for a couple of weeks. I was also using a P.o.S. ps/2 keyboard and my mouse that went to laptop. I used cheap stuff in the beginning too.

My suggestion of wanting to see the cables was only help them, not laugh at, or act like a snob towards them. A cable mess can lead to technical problems too, btw, not just heat issues.

I work for a computer repair business. Before I started there, they had a client come in numerous times saying his computer wont boot sometimes and that it shuts down randomly. Every time he brought the computer in, it worked flawlessly. He has an Antec 900, plenty of fans, and had no dust in the case, not a lot of components either. The previous techs thought it might be the power supply, so the client bought another, more expensive, one. Still had the same problems. The first time I start working on it, same situation. Cooling was perfect, computer starts/restarts perfectly every time, no bsod's. He brings it home, same BS there. I go out to his home and see what can be causing these issues. Well after some cable management (he has a non-mod psu), I notice that when his case was standing upright, it pulled down on the sata cable that was connected to his hard drive. Every time it was in shop, the case was on its side and not pulling on the sata cable.

And the moral of the story is; that client wouldn't have paid hundreds of dollars in labor fees if cable management was done right the first time.

Kokin, i noticed that you have an H50, im a little jealous becauseof the fact that i have been wanting one of those types of cpu coolers for a for quite some time now....whats holding me back is money. I make hardly anything, so right now i use what i have. I havent seen anybody on here saying i have to get X product NOW because it will make my setup that much more cooler looking or drop my temps by a such a significant amount that if i dont get X product then it makes me look poor or not as cool as other members or my temps will cause a meltdown. Dont lecture me on budgets, you try not having a job for 2.5 years. I made ends meet every month, but it was very difficult, in fact it still is

I would like to get 2 gtx 580's, is it in mybudget? no
i would like to get a core i7 + new mobo+ new ram, in the budget? no
ssd? nope
a new case? nope
bigger monitor, maybe 3 to do 3d vision...not yet.
im still stuck with the stuff i originally got when i had a nice paying job. i got a new keyboard, sure, but percentage off was almost a steal.
i had to get a new hard drive after my original seagate died 6 months in. thats understandable.

My opinion is mine. anyone can take it or leave it. My opinion that you should get nvidia cards rather than ati, is my opinion. tessellation and 3d looks AMAZING, but i havent seen any crazy cool Eyefinity setup yet, so i cant judge on that.

If you want to keep this constructive argument going, please feel free to PM me, so we dont create useless pages of flaming.

@dusters

I apologize for my rudeness as well. I totally understand the being broke part. I also haven't had a job for several years now and being a full-time college student, I don't have enough time to commit to even a part-time job without putting my studies at risk (but there's always time for OCN biggrin.gif).

I just got a bad vibe from your earlier post and I raged like a pre-teen COD player. So again, sorry for my rude message and I hope I don't let my emotions get the best of me again.
