im glad you asked because i can show you



countersinking FTW
That 1st picture is an optical allusion, it looks like the rivets finish side is on the inside of cover, that counter sink is a great Idea! Reps up for that!

Wow it had a dvd drive! I remember getting a new sys. with a dvd drive, it still had a 5.5" paper floppy drive, people were like, dude what did you get a dvd drive for, it will never catch on, you wasted your money.
It took like 16-17 3.5" floppys and like3 hours to load windows 3.1 on it.lol

thats actually a 240 rad but its only for the CPU so i think it should be adequate.... their are probably better options but i didnt want to sacrifice all my 5.25 inch bays...

this one

and on another note. what do you WC guys think of this?

that tube out of the rad will cross in front of the GTX 470s and up to the CPU block (right in the midle of the hole) and then from the outlet on the water block to the inlet on the top of the rez
That is looking good

Hey JS, yup we just got the storm a short while ago, but it seems to have lightened up a bit now. A few weeks back, there was a crazy storm, half the trees leading into our first paddock where we keep the dogs came crashing down, thankfully we were up at Dargo with the dogs, otherwise 2 of them would have been history I reckon. 2 silly dogs broke their chains yesterday too, and went on a lil havok spree next door to us, neighbours weren't very impressed

Sorry to hear about your wife, I hope they can help. My eyes are shocking, I've been wearing glasses since 94 I think, I was about 7 yrs old in grade 2...I have to go for some tests tomorrow as well, to make sure I'm all good.

It's all scary.



I hardly get to wear sunglasses, I wouldn't dare try and drive without my glasses on, I'd probably kill myself 10min into driving. Lately I've been having major headaches and all that, I never used to before. I just get a bit worried seeing as the wifey and I are only 22 & 23, and we are already so 'broken' lol

I wouldn't be able to handle the weather in the states, I'm slowly coming to terms with the Aussie weather...South Africa is so mild compared to Australia, it's crazy.

Good to hear you are handy around the house, I apparently need to pull my weight more...? lol Haha I see the scout and haf get VIP treatment, should get a custom made car seat just for them, maybe even a couple of dvd headrest players, so they are entertained on the long trips? hehe

The front I/O panel on my HAF is stuffed. I checked the CM store website for a replacement, and it seemed decent at $9.99, until I checked the international shipping price, it was over $70 whatever, as if I'm gonna pay $70 for shipping. I think it's HAF X time instead, gonna have to try and convince the other half that it's necessary (She'll never buy it anyways ) I bought 2x 60gb G.Skill Phoenix Pro SSD's, but I don't know what the hell is up with them, but for some strange reason, no matter what I do or try...they don't run above 150mbps read or write. They're quoted at over 275mbps read and write individually... but anyways, I'll keep at it, until I get annoyed and break something

Grrr, don't get me started on internet (I have anger issues lol) because we're in a regional area, we can only get adsl not adsl 2+, or we can go wireless or wimax. the wimax is quoted at 12mbps down and whatever speed up, but my brother in law got wimax, and yeah right 12mbps down..whatever, needless to say he isn't impressed. Anyways I took the cheapest uncapped option of $40 a month, but its at a sick speed of 256kbps down and 64kbps up, keeps everyone happy, except me.

We're gonna have to start going enery star or something soon, the bills are skyrocketing like mad, I'm gonna have a heartache soon after seeing some of the bills.

Ah oh well, that's enough rambling from me for one night, I best call it a night.

Good chatting and catching up
Hey Photonmoo, regarding Regional Internet we have adsl 1 with iinet and have the 8000Kbps and is $69 /month with 100GB = 50GB peak 50GB offpeak ,
and yeah the price for electricity has gone up again too, getting beyond the joke,

for your SSD's have you got the Sata AHCI mode enabled

That depended on what density the floppies were. Installing Dos and then Windows 3.1 on a 386 DX 20 with 4 megs of ram took about 1.5 hours with the HD 3.5" disks. With lower density or 5.25" disks it could take a good 2 - 2.5 hours. I don't remember it ever taking 3 hours unless one was doing other things and not switching the disks right away. If you were lucky enough to have it on a CD you could cut that down to about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how fast the cd drive was.

1.44m HD 3.5" took 7 disks (I have a set of them here so I know this one for sure). WFWG 3.11 took 8 disks.

IIRC
720kb SD 3.5" took 13 or 14 disks
1.2m HD 5.25" took 9 or 10 disks
360kb LD 5.25" took 25 or 26 disks, but I think this was only available through Win 3.0. Not sure if 3.1 was available this way or not.

Ya you could be right, on the time,I give or take .5 hrs,lol.. but my first GUI OS was win3.1 like 1992-93 and the thing I remember best was there was nowhere near 4megs of ram! ram was like $150-180 per meg and that was alot of money to me at the time!

Hey Papa, so you must remember your first lan card? or modem card? whatever they called it. Mine took like 3 days after work, until like midnight to configure, sheesh, and it was something like IDK 4-8 baud? thats d/l, rofl
