    Broke i7

    5/12/09 - update, pg. 3
    5/18/09 - update, pg. 3


    ...and this is how it starts. Should have a few more things this week. Case and second GPU/waterblock are next, then PSU, fittings, tubing. Also, going to try and run stacked radiators with YL medium fans on both sides with a shroud in the middle. Haven't decided on the radiators though, but hoping for the Feaser 480 stacked with something else.



    Foxconn Bloodrage (ordered)
    Corsair 6GB Dominator 1600 (ordered)
    Corsair HX1000w PSU
    BFG/EVGA 260 GTX SLI
    Silverstone TJ07 (with MM inspiration)

    Not sure what I'm going to do with this one though:

    I love this case too, but with SLI and the extra cooling I'll need there isn't enough room.

    I am doing a TJ07, but won't be doing a full MM build. I'll flip the motherboard and probably order the backplate, but that will be it.

    I'm happy to see another TJ07 build here. The Lian Li build could have used some sleeved cabling but it looks pretty nice.

    What kind of things to you want to improve on with this build? (besides better performance)

    I wanted something with more room for cooling. I plan on fitting 2 radiators in the lower section and I can't do that in the LL case.

    Does that keyboard have flat keys that don't depress very far? I had a logitech wireless keyboard a few years ago and I loved the feel of keys that don't travel much.

    I hope so. The G11 has terrible keys. I was at Fry's today, and they had one on display. It has that "free keyboard" feeling.

    This keyboard is definitely the softest I have typed on.

    And yes, it's an original Judebox. 15GB. It hasn't been turned on in about 2 years.

    Good to know, I like my Lycosa, but the look of that keyboard, its simplistic yet stylish at the same time

    I had one of that players too. It was like holding a brick

    See that cable coming off the top edge of the keyboard, the one heading toward the computer?

    Does it have quiet keystrokes? My missus hates how loud my Logitech Media KB is (cost me $19AUD but so simple I love it!)
