I admit is not neat... but it completely lefts the main hot air exhaust (yeah... not intake) free, it maintains quite cool the processor and GPU (44?C and 64?C max temps)... it was one hell of a show to fit that motherboard in such an small case...

My newest build, pieced together from spare parts, running Linux Mint 15. Excellent case design allows for exceptionally cool and quiet operation...  :shiftyninja:

All 4 wheels lock so it doesn't move at all.  You could knock the desk as hard as you want and it doesn't even budge.

I finally kicked out my room mate, so I have my entire house back (she had TWO out of three rooms, so I had to have my office stuff in my bedroom in the past post)...

 

Still working on it ATM...the flag I just threw up there so the walls didn't look so bare lol.

what case is that?

CaseLabs TH-10.  It's a huge case but perfect for multiple radiator water loops.

Apologies for the quality. I used a Nexus 4 to take the pictures in a room that is already quite dark.

This is like the high version of my recent build, you got a 7970 and a xonar card, I got a 7950 and a Creative Z, everything else is almost the same (except for keyboard and mouse... and two less screens :D)

Changed the stock cooler (not bad but too noisy) for the Samurai ZZ rev 2 and added a Creative Z sound card (It's OEM version, hence no shield) just above the graphics card... I used to have the Creative X-Fi USB, back then was a huge change from onboard audio but with this now I know that it can get even better :D

I deliberately wanted to assemble an small but powerful system, worst thing is... there *is* cable management, it's on the second optical bay.... the cables that you see are only the power and data cables of both the SSD and HDD.... lol. total size is 40 x 20 x 45 cm.

I bought a large case because I'm awful with cable management, I wish I had a really clean cable job like some of the pros on here.

      MSI announces Quadro RTX 5000-based WS65 workstation and an all-new WP series
      by Jay Bonggolto

      At Computex 2019 today, MSI announced a new addition to its WS series of workstations in the form of the MSI WS65, among others. The workstation is powered by Nvidia's Quadro RTX 5000 GPU, also unveiled at the same event happening in Taiwan, and MSI claims it's the world's first laptop to incorporate that graphics card.

      The refreshed WS series, along with the WE lineup, comes with the 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processors. The new workstations are built with ultra-thin bezels featuring a 4K screen for more detailed graphics for creators. They also include MSI’s Creator Center, a software tool for optimizing content creation.

      Eric Kuo, President of MSI's Notebook Business, said:

      Kuo added that the WS65 includes a glass touchpad, a fingerprint reader with Windows Hello, TPM 2.0 crypto-processor technology, and Thunderbolt 3.0 support. Its battery is claimed to be capable of lasting more than 9 hours on a charge.

      In addition, MSI introduced the all-new WP series of workstations, also powered by the Quadro RTX GPUs and 9th-gen Intel Core i9 processors. The pricing and availability details of the new workstations remain unknown for now, however.

      ASUS announces the StudioBook S mobile workstation
      by João Carrasqueira

      ASUS has announced a new mobile workstation at the Consumer Electronics Show, the StudioBook S. The laptop offers a 17-inch display in the 16:10 aspect ratio at Full HD (1920x1200) resolution, but it has the size of a typical 15-inch laptop thanks to the company's NanoEdge technology, with bezels at just 5.4mm on the sides and top of the display. The panel also covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color range, and it's PANTONE Validated, so color accuracy shouldn't be an issue.

      On the inside, the laptop is powered by either an Intel Core i7-8750H or an Intel Xeon E-2176M processor, both of which offer six cores and twelve threads, though the Xeon will provide higher clock speeds. As for graphics, Nvidia's Quadro P3200 with 6GB of GDDR5 memory seems to be the only option. The internals are kept cool by a thermal solution that maxes out at 35 dB.

      Other specs include up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, 4TB of SSD storage with support for RAID 0/1 configurations, and a 57Wh battery to keep things running on the go. As for connectivity, the machine supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, Bluetooth 5.0, and it's got a fair number of ports, including one HDMI 2.0, one Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C port, 3 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an SD card reader, and an audio combo jack.

      The StudioBook S is slated to arrive in the spring, with pricing and availability being disclosed at a later date.

      Fedora 25 released features Wayland debut
      by Paul Hill



      The Fedora Project has, today, released the 25th version of its popular Linux distribution. The release comes in three editions: Workstation, Server, and Atomic. New packages common to all releases include Docker 1.12 – which allows for building and running of containerised applications, Node.js 6.5 – the latest version of the popular server-side JavaScript engine, support for the Rust programming language, and support for multiple Python versions – 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5 – which will help developers to run test suites across several Python configurations.

      Fedora 25 Workstation will likely be of most interest to readers who want to give the release a test spin. This release is pretty exciting; it’s the first to officially debut the long-awaited Wayland display server which replaces the legacy X11 system. Wayland aims to “provide a smoother, richer experience for graphical environments and better capabilities for modern graphics hardware.”

      The other big additions include GNOME 3.22 which “offers multiple file renaming, a redesigned keyboard settings tool and additional user interface improvements” and Linux Kernel 4.8 which supports new hardware. Fedora 25 also includes support for the decoding of MP3 files.

      To get your hands on Fedora 25, you’ll have several options. If you’ve currently got Fedora 24 you can use GNOME Software to upgrade to Fedora 25; this upgrade should typically take less than 30 minutes, depending on system configuration and network speed. If you’re looking to try Fedora out as a new user coming from Windows or macOS you will be given the Fedora Media Writer if you try to download the new release.

      With Fedora Media Writer, users will be able to download the current Fedora release and write it to removable media, such as a USB device. From the USB device, you can “test drive” the operating system without having to install it on your actual hard drive. If you want to do an install, you can do so from the USB Live Media that you created.

      HP unveils the Z2 Mini workstation, 'smaller than a cup of espresso'
      by Vlad Dudau

      HP has unveiled a new workstation, but unlike its previous products, the HP Z2 Mini is small enough to fit inside your bag. The company is billing this as the “first-ever mini workstation” and promises top-of-the-line performance inside of a tiny package.

      The HP Z2 Mini is all about design and saving users space, with the device coming in at just 2.3 by 8.5 inches, which is “smaller than a cup of espresso” as the company is quick to point out. But don’t let its size fool you, as HP claims this little machine packs a punch.

      Inside the HP Z2 Mini users will find current and future generations of Intel’s Xeon Processors, Nvidia Quadro graphics with “M620-class professional graphics”, and an HP Z Turbo Drive with up to 1.5 TB of storage. The device can also support up to six displays straight out of the box.

      But performance isn’t everything, and HP went on to emphasize the custom-designed vents and coolers inside of the device that keep it cool and quiet. The company says the Z2 Mini is 63% quieter than an HP business-class mini PC.

      The company mentions that the HP Z2 Mini is specifically designed for CAD users, with the device being certified for over 20 professional software applications. The mini workstation ships with either Windows 10 Pro or Linux distros.

      The HP Mini will go on sale this December worldwide with a starting price of $699, but which can go up depending on your custom needs and loadout.
