mmmm N64, Mine is sadly neglected atm... frown.gif Along with my NES...



Anyway, In nerd news;
I recently sold my second BenQ 27" screen and my HD7970 GPU and got $570 for both ($400 for GPU and $170 for screen), both are more than I actually paid for them lols... Anyway, I then used that money and purchased a reference Sapphire AMD Radeon R9 290X GPU from work and now my pc is:
Size comparison with my ITX Motherboard wink.gif


In the case:




I am now making a Custom water loop for the PC which will have a 240mm Radiator in the top, 200mm radiator in the front, 100Ml res and pump (In one unit) and XSPC CPU and GPU block smile.gif Going to be mad.
Working out the fittings and piping at the moment smile.gif

Just playing around with a COB. It's a 10W warm white running at 6W, that tube is the heat sink. I've got some plans for rebuilding the 7G 3rd brake light with a red COB strip instead of the individual LED's, assuming I can heat sink it well enough. It should make for a nice bright red bar instead of points of light. Oh and be blindingly bright. This white one was $7 so I nabbed it and am doing some learning, just ordered a variable voltage variable current buck/boost as a driver. It's capable of handling 2 amps so driving a 10W LED is no problem, the COB in the 3rd brake light will obviously be red but it will also be smaller, probably a 7W unit. For comparison sake, the 10W running at 6W is like a 40w frosted incandescent bulb. Heat sinking inside the brake light housing could be a challenge, but I have some room behind the housing inside the head liner area and I can tie the heat sink to the body of the car to add cooling capacity or even a tiny fan to increase efficiency. I'm going for BRIGHT AS **** here, if I can. If a COB won't work I'll rebuild with an array of high intensity single emitters on a copper or aluminum heat spreader and heat sinking. Either way I want to double the light from it.

Ok, I need a hit from my inhaler and where did my retainer get to? LOL

Meh, nah, not unless you want a BITCHING case light. The stuff I make is usually one off stuff for myself, especially for my cars. I don't want a bunch of people around with the same cool stuff.

Damn, 28 amps! That's some serious 12V rail! Hell, the CPU probably ran at 12V in that thing, wafer so thick you could eat it for breakfast and have leftovers for lunch.

It is, even in the last ten or so years. I remember a time when the internet and computers was usually something you only had access to while at school or the library. Now a days just about everyone has a computer. What's really astounding is how fast phones have become what they are. Video games have made leaps and bounds as well. It's just all amazing when you sit back and look at it all. At one point computers took up an entire laboratory, now they fit into your pocket. Just makes you wonder what the next ten years will bring.

Anyhow, I have my nerdy side. ESPECIALLY with synthesizers, if it weren't for them I might build a computer. Though one of these days it'd be nice to have one to integrate into a DAW/recording suite.
