I confused the two of you. I'm sorry. frown.gif

Meh! It's close enough. They're GPUs that OEMs stick in their $1200 i3 "gaming" rigs. If you're really lucky you'll get an H87 mobo and a 1TB HDD to go with your 6GB of RAM.

I have: CPU monitor, CPU and GPU temperature monitors, RAM and SWAP, network, three drives, and a clock and volume changer thing. There's still enough space for an OCN RSS feed below. I'm using THIS btw. I've hacked it on my laptop to run a Winamp-esque look and add a battery monitor and SSD temperature monitor. It was an older, non-modular version.

my office machine is a ivy bridge i5, not bad, but its not nearly as stable as I would like it to be.

The software I run typically runs only on 2 cores, so the higher OC the better, even just running on my IGPU on my 5ghz machine at home is better than the 3.whatever my i5 at work is running at with a dedicated GPU

Biggest issue I had at work was the server. Server completely bottlenecked the computers and software.

same here, and our ISP.

Speedtest says we are getting .93mbs down. During lunch and break times its impossible to send any files or emails, since everyone is browsing the web. and our boss thinks its because everyone is streaming music and on the internet all the time, but thats not the problem. Even on the weekends when all the desktops auto-shut down, its barely better. I keep telling them its all the live Anti-Virus crap, live system monitoring and other junk thats locking down our system. 40+ computers on a home quality connection is going to suck, even worse when they are all running live monitoring systems. either that our hub is just really slow and out-dated. ( i'm not too good with server and networking hardware )

it took someone else getting fired before I could run into the empty office to steal her tower. previously I was on a p4 with a failing hard drive.

at home i'm getting 60mbs+ on a bad day.

LOL@ everyone else rocking their dell issued items. Everytime someone comes over to my desk they love looking at my monitor, like my keyboard, but are put off by my mouse. Apparently having 18 buttons can confuse them lol. Also bring in my own chair and a few other little items, but if you're going to have me stuck at a desk all day I'm going to need the proper tools, if you won't issue them to me i'll just bring my own. I don't even consider working for places that ban external computer items.

I would even go as far as to build me a desktop to leave at work if they would let me. ( though i've stuffed a better GPU and an SSD in my office tower tongue.gif )

*Snipped*
sure its a few hundered bucks out of my own pocket, but it was well worth the cost for everything.


I am the exact same way! I have my own mouse (Logitech M310), keyboard (CM QF Pro w/ MX Browns and o-rings) and chair (some Office Depo $99 special, it's faux-leather and comfy), but they won't let me bring my own monitor and my rig is a docked laptop that gets replaced about every 6 months (not with something better, just with a different one because they are crap), so I'm not wasting the time or energy to try to upgrade it. But like you said, if I have to be here 40 - 60 hours a week, I want nice things to work with!


Also, I've spent the last 3 days getting caught up on this thread (it moves too dang quick!) and I wanted to finally post some pics as I bought my self some clicky Christmas presents! Lots of Photos (Click to show)
Ducky finally, after 6 months, got a me a replacement for my Shine 2 that died!!



After a rather long wait (nearly a month), this finally arrived!!


So here is the whole collection (except my QF Pro which is at work):

Top right is a Ducky Shine Zero with MX Blues and the Ducky wrist rest, Top right is the Ducky Shine 3 with MX Blues and white LEDs, bottom right is QF Stealth with MX Blues and orange front printed keycaps that were yet to be put on, bottom left is the Model M with buckling springs I just got off eBay. You'd think I like MX Blues or something! tongue.gif

And a couple of updates to the QF Stealth with the orange keycaps:



Lastly, can someone point me to where I can buy replacement tops for the QF Stealth (or QF Rapid) so I can try painting one without screwing up the keyboard if I mess up?

here ya go
http://www.cmstore-usa.com/quickfire-rapid-replacement-top-panel/

awhile back they had a deal where they were $5 each with free shipping, not sure what the current price is ( have to login to see )
got me 4 of them and still have 2 left.
My paint guide. (Click to show)
1. 400 grit sand paper ( yes it takes forever ) go EASY to not dig into the plastic. Do not use any thing rougher than 400 ( I would have used 600 if I had some ) as it will just dig into the plastic and scratch it up leaving an un-even finish.
2. Sand all the rubber off
3. Wet sand with 1000+ grit over the entire body ( more time in prep work = better final result ) until its glass smooth
4. get paint
5. MIST the keyboard very very very lightly ( if you cover everything in one go you're doing it wrong, if it looks wet, you're doing it wrong )
6. wait 10mins, mist again, 10mins, mist, 10mins, mist, etc until the entire thing is covered.
7. let dry aprox 3 hours
8. Wetsand again with 1500+ ( it will still be tacky, but use light pressure to remove any paint build up, and use rubber gloves or be very gentle to not leave fingerprints )
9. Don't touch it for a day.
10. Repeat 5-9 I want to say I misted mine about 20 times or so before the final sanding.
11. Final wetsand of 2000+ and you're done!
Note: if you use a high gloss paint, the final wetsanding can take away the shine leaving a matt finish so I myself always use matt colors, and If I want gloss then I go into clear-coating.
I think most people here would not want a high gloss keyboard so I won't go into that.
