Man, that just looks futuristic!! :)

Yeah, much rather have computer be incognito also, but most of the stuff here just looks insanely cool at same time!

Cheers dude!

Worked on it a lot over the years, can probably see the evolution in my posts on here.

Done a lot of cable management since this was taken and working on getting a 5 panel wall art for the wall behind with my logo on.

Other than that, it's still the same now.

Added 2X 120 Slim RGB fans below the Jetstream

 

Changed the ASRock Pro4 for a ASRock Steal Legend (more rgb)

Changed the MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z for a Palit 2070 Super Jetstream

 

Removed 2X fans off the Rad and moved position to accommodate the much bigger 2070 super

I though I share my new build, which I just completed: Fractal Design Node 202 (i7 8700k, 32GB DDR4 3200, Zotac GTX 1070, 960 EVO nvme M.2)

 

Decided to retire my LianLi aluminum mini tower i7 3770k and go small and powerful. (let me know if someone is interested in purchasing this, will give a good deal: 16GB DDR3 2400, GTX 570, 600GB Raid 0 7200rpm + 2TB 7200RPM storage)

 

At first I was thinking of just purchasing a small build due to high cost of GPUs but at then end decided to hand pick my components and use my existing GTX 1070 and wait it our for the next gen of GPUs.

 

As stated in the link I decided to go for the compact Fractal Design Node 202 case. It's only slightly bigger than my PS4 and definitely more quiet.

When picking components for the build I had to keep in mind the small space I will have available to work with within the case.

 

CPU/Heat-sink Cooler: went with the i7 8700k and to keep it cool in such a limited space used Scythe's BIG Shuriken 2 Rev. B 45.5 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler.

 

Thermal Compound: I used Gelid Solution GC-Extreme 3.5g thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink. Rated as best performing thermal paste but I do recommend warming it up before aplication by placing the syringe in a zip-lock bag and placing it under hot water.

 

RAM: Low profile Corsair - Vengeance LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte's Z370N. Mini ITX with 2 nvme m.2 slots so I can run my Samsung 960 EVO 500GB in Raid 0

 

Storage: My OS and some games are installed on the Raid 0 2x Samsung 960 EVO 500GB, and my other files are located on a Crucial 1TB MX300 SSD (Small, fast, and now spinning drives)

 

GPU: I used the Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! edition as I already had it and did not feel like spending $1000+ to get a 1080ti. Runs everything at 1440p so its good enough. UPDATED TEMPS: Idle @29C & Max Load @75C (Had to play here with the case fans and create custom temp grid profiles for each in order to optimize directional airflow)

 

Power supply: Corsair SF 600. Small, powerful, fully modular.

 

Case Fans: I used Noctua's slim 120mmx15mm fans so there is more space between the GPU and the fans. In some other build people used 120mmx25mm fans.

 

Overall experience: fun to build and really happy with final product. Case makes no noise when I do regular MS Office work, web surfing, movie watching and email checking. CPU fa is the only think spinning but is doing it at 950RPMs and 10-12dbs. GPU fans are off when temp of gpu is below 40C.

Fans kick-in in higher RPMs when playing games like Battlefront II, GTA V, Witcher 3, Destiny 2 but the highest noise the Noctua fans make are 24db, and CPU fan is slightly audible, but not very notifiable when gaming and fraging other people :)

 

Node1m.jpgNode2m.jpg

Node3m.jpgNode4m.jpg

Also few updates on my side, got a new RTX 2080 and an ultra-wide screen from LG 34GK950F

It's quite the change playing in Ultrawide.

BTW, no space or heat issues in this case with the RTX 2080, which was my main concern.

Hello,

Just did a bit of a system upgrade (motherboard, CPU and heatsink) with some of the holiday offers that have been going on:

No bonus points, as there were no RGB lights used in this build,

@goretsky Nice 10 core/20 thread system there!!!! Did you want to stay intel? did you think about TR? How much cheaper was it that its $899 MSRP? (if you don't mind me asking)

Hello,

 

I was looking at AMD's (Zen2 microarchitecture-based offerings because the price performance ratios on them are very compelling, but I was concerned about stability.  It seems all the motherboard manufacturers are putting out a constant stream of AGESA updates, and while it is good they are rapidly fixing issues, the fact that they also introduce new ones.  For me, stability and reliability come before performance, and while I did want to try something with higher performance than my now-previous system, I did not want to make any sacrifices when it comes to stability and reliability.  Also, I know that all of the existing hardware works with Intel's CPUs and chipsets, as well as the software I use.  There are some things Intel-based motherboards seem to be simply better at, like CPU-less BIOS (UEFI) firmware upgrades, and I had concerns about having to migrate virtual machines to recognize the new CPU architecture (it seemed like a lot of work for minimal trade-off in performance).

 

The Intel Core i9-9820X was purchased from Micro Center for $350 plus tax.  I also had to make a round-trip drive of about 140 miles, but I felt it was worth it for the discount (~60%).

 

Regards,

 

Aryeh Goretsky

Primary workstation. Running off a Brix Pro. (i7 4770R, 16GB Ram 512 m.2 SSD) I'd love to build a new PC for it, but I just can't justify it. Other than the loud fan when the CPU is taxed, that's the only issue I have with it. It does everything I need.

Just wait until a certain member comes along and tells you how that isn’t sufficient cooling and you are throttling. 😂

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.

      Surface Pro 8 and Laptop 4 images leak, expected to be launched in January 2021
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Surface Pro 7 Images of possible successors to the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 and Laptop 3 have been spotted passing through certification in Korea. The pictures, posted by Twitter user cozyplanes, suggest that the devices – likely to be called the Pro 8 and the Laptop 4 – will retain the design of its predecessors. The tweet also hints at the possible addition of an LTE version of the Pro 8.

      Windows Central’s Zac Bowden adds that according to his sources, the company plans to release these devices with minor specification changes, packing Intel’s 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors. The Surface Laptop 4 is expected to also offer AMD variants, just like its predecessor, but it is not clear what chips the Redmond firm will be using. Bowden also corroborates the information about an LTE version of the Pro 8 on offer, adding that the launch will be one without much fanfare, owing to how minor the updates are.

      In addition to launching the two models, Microsoft is also expected to launch the dual-screened Surface Duo in more markets. The company might also unveil a black colored variant of the Surface Go 2 tablet. There are reportedly no other major announcements expected to happen in early 2021.

      Today’s news might come as a disappointment to those that have been expecting a major design refresh to the Surface Pro line, which has not seen a meaningful design upgrade since the Pro 4 in 2015. The design on these devices now looks dated, especially with the Surface Pro X featuring thin bezels and a modern design. It will be interesting to see what the firm has in store for the Pro line.
