Bought stands for monitors. They do sound a lot better when decoupled from the desk but unfortunately that also revealed a few significant flaws with the frequency response (harsh upper mids and treble, slightly v-shaped sound).

There are spirals used for wire tuck and they are very cheap and the best way to manage wires is to direct them all to only one place. All plugs go into a single stabilizer (or a no-break which is what I have) or at least have a multi power plug input. Then you will have only one wire going straight into the wall's power plug. Buy a few tabs to roll the wires and you will have a good result.

@The_Human How difficult is it to make something like this? Arch-Linux has to be "hand-crafted" right?

Answer:

I need to learn not to mess with this niche OS anymore. It's f*cking pointless and time-consuming.

@BlackScout Well, ricing wm is independent of the distro you're using. And you don't really have to worry about Arch Linux since it has excellent documentation.

All in all, I would say it's pretty easy if you can follow instructions.

 

If you hate Arch Linux way too much, then I wonder what your opinion is about Gentoo.

@The_Human I don't hate any distros. The problem is that it was a pain in the ass to set up some of the basic stuff.

I was actually pretty lucky I got most of the initial setup correctly. Even if the guide was a bit confuse and dense. I guess previous experience messing with VMs and Dual-Booting Linux to build Android helped me.

 

In my situation, the problem was that I had LightDM set up as a display manager, but the Xorg Server or whatever wouldn't start.

(LightDM + KDE Plasma)
All I got was a blank screen (after log-in), hours of my time lost and a broken-ish OS inside a VM.

 

Hence I decided to delete it and screw everything... 

To be fair, I hardly know the world of Linux. (Having only used Linux Mint and Ubuntu distros). I can get by with my limited knowledge about some commands* but that's about it.

*ls, cd, man, chmod, nano, vim, pacman (for arch), sudo, apt sh*t, free, cat, etc.


About Gentoo, I have no idea what it's like.

In a nutshell, Gentoo is all about choices. And you have to compile everything (there are some binaries in the official repos for things like Firefox, Libre Office, etc).

You get to select the bootloader, init system (Arch Linux doesn't support anything other than systemd, but Gentoo does), etc. Gentoo is ridiculously difficult to install, so much so that the installation guide (handbook, as they call it) has chapters in it. Since it is all about choices, it can be extremely minimal. It boots like a crazy f*cker sometimes, in seconds.

There's also a news that someone went suicidal when installing Gentoo and got admitted to the hospital.

P.S. I promise I won't spam this topic with Linux sh*t anymore. :D

 

P.P.S. Hit me up with a PM if you feel like you want to talk about Linux.

Jesus. I impulsively bought this Raijintek Asterion case because it looked nice. This case only has two intakes, and they're on the bottom. The filters require EIGHT screws to remove, and you need to lay the case on it's side glass panel to get to it. Makes me want to throw the case out the window. Such a stupid design. If the filters can't slide or clip on, at least make it magnetic. Having to tip the case onto the glass side and pull a screwdriver out of my ass to remove eight screws and screw them back in is inexcusable, especially for a case at this price.

Haha, that's insane. What were they thinking? A lot of case manufacturers seem to be going the 'form over function'-route these days, especially after the whole tempered glass fad kicked off, everyone apparently scrambling to restrict airflow as much as possible, while making the glass panels a pain in the ass to remove and refit. Some manufacturers have come up with some properly well thought out solutions (like on the LianLi PC-O11 Dynamic for example), others... not so much:

You need to remove the top panel on the pc-o11 dynamic before lifting any of the front, side or back panel, while the original pc-011 was secured by thumb screws

Which is a far superior solution, really. You only need to remove two thumb screws from the top panel, slide it off, and you can slide all the other panels off, so it's a lot less fiddly.

they add an extra step to complicate what was easy, i dont know how that is superior. At least on the O11 they are all clip on apart from the glass. The better aproach would be to slide on the bottom and the two thumb screws on the top for each panel.

 

Ill still buy the dynamic, but if they didnt ruined that front glass with those black borders it would be much better

That Lian-Li case is so gorgeous... hopefully my next build will feature the PC-Q37.

 

If only it wasn't so expensive 😐

Yeah, sucks. Another two weeks. I'm waiting for some other parts for my build from the US, which will probably be a few weeks under way anyways, plus how ever long they take getting through customs. But would've been nice to get the case sooner, so I could start planning.

I've always been very conservative with PC lighting and whatnot, but now that I was "forced" to upgrade after brutally murdering my Titan X, I thought "f*ck it" - I need some color in my life. Still have some plans to class it up a bit, but I'd been without PC gaming for almost two weeks, so the assembly was quick. I decided to pay a premium to have the 8700K delidded (delit?), done up with liquid metal, the IHS polished and the CPU pretested at 4.9 GHz, as opposed to doing it myself (also has full 2 year warranty). Full specs at the bottom.

CPU Intel "der8auer" Core i7-8700K Pro Edition (4,9 GHz, delidded, polished IHS)

MOBO Asus ROG Maximus X CODE (Z370)

GPU EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition iCX, 11264 MB GDDR5X

RAM G.SKILL TRIDENTZ RGB SERIES - 32GB (4X8GB)

PSU Corsair RM850x White

STORAGE Western Digital Black NVMe M.2 SSD 500 GB (OS) / Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB / Samsung SSD 850 EVO 256GB

CASE Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic (White)

CPU COOLER NZXT Kraken X72 360mm AIO

 

Runs great, temps are great. CPU idle around 33-36C, and the highest it's been during lengthy gaming sessions, was 51C, so plenty of headroom for the coming OC. The GPU does get a bit toasty down there in the bottom, but I still need to figure out the fan situation - probably adding three intake fans on the bottom, but might also go for the vertical GPU mount when it's available in white.

Even your CPU lid is polished. 😀

 

That board looks great as well. I wish the ITX boards had a better looking cover/heatsink designs for the rear outputs and VRMs. All the ITX boards seem to have bland ones that hardly cover anything.
