You should probably try out Void Linux to be honest. It's nice and minimal. runit, you can choose muslc, it has some BSD-ness if you like BSD like I do. Although the documentation and the packages are a bit sparse, both are being worked on. I like how easy it to submit a package. You literally create a pull request in the void packages repo. Don't regret switching to Void Linux a single bit.

But I'd use OpenBSD if I can get the correct video drivers for this integrated intel graphics. The live CD is borked, I can't even see the kernel messages lol.

Or I could stick with Linux by choosing CRUX which is closest to BSD you can ever get. I'm actually using pkgutils (package manager of CRUX) to install binaries in my home directory. Right now, I'm rewriting pkgutils in bash because cpp is too horrible to hack.

I like the simplicity of pkgutils. Here's a package for patch for example -- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vizs/ports/master/patch/pkgfile. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to configure the kernel now, so I'm sticking with void and pkgutils. I am actually thinking about writing in rust though because some stuff are quit hard to do in bash even though I know POSIX sh and some bashisms quite well.


About Slackware, do you like it? IIRC, you do have to compile everything in Slackware no?

I was looking at Void and I like how it's community built and maintained but I think I read the main guy behind it was MIA? Not that it's a bad thing I think Slackware 14.2 is a 2016 release. I do indeed like Slackware, and at first you do have to compile everything but theres plenty of tools for it. For example, SlackBuild where you basically take the source code and a *.SlackBuild file, run the SlackBuild and it creates a package which you can then install with pkgtools. There's also sbotools which allows you to search for and install packages from cli and it will install required dependencies - basically a rudimentary package manager but it does work quite well. Given that in the space of a few days I've went from diving headfirst into Slackware with no research and already have my head around packages etc I'd say it's a relatively easy learning curve.

I have wanted to order a hard-copy set of Slackware discs since forever, just to say I have them! I have run Slack before; it was rock solid, but I often ran into difficulty installing software that wasn't included with the distro. That was a long time ago, now, so I may give it a whirl if I ever get really antsy about this Arch install.

 

Chances are you can find most of the software in the above tools (SlackBuild, sbotools etc) and anything you can't find specific for Slackware you can usually find elsewhere. For example my main storage drive is a Windows software raid0 of 2 drives and under Debian I was using a nice little program called ldmtool to map the drives however ldmtool didn't have a release under Slackware. To get it working I simply pulled the source and Debian patch, compiled them and that was that. The hardest part is probably finding the correct dependencies but again the above tools make that pretty easy imo, definitely more effort than something like Debian with a package manager but atleast you know exactly what you're running.

Even after a week Im still very excited ^.^

 

New system 

 

i9-9900k still testing OC, currently I'm at all cores locked at 5Ghz using 1.24V

Darkrock Pro 4 cooler (looks really sleek compared to my nh d14)

Gigabyte RTX2070 Windforce (Because I couldn't find founders edition 2080ti & only brand they had was inno3d and 2 other crap brands)

Gigabyte Z390 Aorus masters (Amazing motherboard)

2 x 8 GB 3000 Corsair LPX low profile ram (using 3000mhz XMP profile)

Seasonic Focus Plus 80 Gold 750W

Meshify C ATX dark tempered glass case (Will get a pic up after I get the sleeved extension cable set & exhaust fan because I'm currently using Noctua 120mm as exhaust and it looks abit awkward)

 

 

 

Upgrading from 2500k at 4.5 ghz I can say that its a HUGE difference. The programs I use they open instantly and GTA V (only tested with 22 people lobby) running at max settings (Not advanced settings) runs at rock solid 60fps :):):) Also KF2 with Nvidia Flex gibs and fluid 60fps

Got some pretty awful pictures of the pc itself.

My specs are a bit odd in places because I basically just dropped a 1080Ti into my old 1060 rig:


Ryzen 5 1600x with a dodgy overclock to 3.8, cooled by a Corsair H115i.

16gb (2x8) of disappointing Corsair LPX 2400mhz ram

EVGA 1080Ti Black.

Fractal Design Define R6 Gunmetal TG (I want to do a ridiculous custom loop in either an old Enthoo Primo or something like a TJ11 however)

I want to fill that empty space with fan mounted hard drive cables for big storage.

my awful cable management skills

Looks fantastic mate! Very clean layout and bending! Those are 16mm tubes, yeah?

yes 16mm, they seem more forgiving then 14mm, but i did manage to screw that CPU to reservoir tube, it needed re-heating and didn't end very well.

ill fix it the next time when the waterway led controller arrives.

Extensions arrived :) 

Still waiting for my Prolimatech ultra sleek slim fan to arrive so I can replace the odd looking Noctua exhaust fan.

I really should find an alternative to maim. maim is just hard asf to package (cause cmake) and compile. It hard depends on slop which is quite bad.

Damn, my PC looks like garbage compared to yours... My specs are:

- CPU: i5 8600K which is cooled by a Raijintek LETO Pro (cheap, but it does its work, a little OC is possible)

- MoBo: MSI Z370 Tomahawk

- GPU: Palit RTX 2060 GamingPro OC (one of the cheapest RTX 2060 but, at the same time, one of the best)

- RAM: 2x8GB G.Skill 3200MHz CL 15

- Storage: 1x SSD Samsung 850EVO 120GB + 1x HDD Western Digital Blue 1TB

- PSU: Sharkoon IceWind 750W (yes, 750W are too much, but for 62€ I had to buy it)

- Case: Corsair Carbide Spec-03 (Red)

Oh, and a DVD drive too! 😂

 

How can I describe my PC in a single word? Probably I'd say "discount", every single piece of hardware has been chosen for its price/performance. I bought the i5 8600K in this summer just because it had an incredible discount (just 165€ on Amazon.it), with "normal prices" I'd have probably chosen a Ryzen 2600. RAM, MoBo and GPU have been bought on a minor store's site, so I saved a few bucks. What I'd like to change now? Probably the case, it's old and it's awful when it comes to cable managment.

I can never look at this PC without thinking "He's milking every last ounce of performance from it!" 😛

 

EDIT: If no one got my joke, no wonder why, lol: I accidentally linked the box with the blue liquid instead of the one with the white liquid.

In my view, that doesn't mean 'discount', but rather 'smart'! 'Discount' has always had the connotation of 'lower-quality' in my experience, whereas the approach that you describe can be used for any price or performance level of a product.

I don't think it's too much at all. That may put your load at around 60%, which gives you a lower operating cost and higher longevity/lower risk of failure than a load in the 85 - 90% range. As you implied, total cost should be taken into account, and not just price.

True, with 750W I have also a good margin in OC, but the electrical bill will surely be a little higher (probably a few €, not that much).

BTW I still think that "discount" is more appropriate, but I like "smart" too!

Honestly that looks really good 👍 

 

I've always wanted RGB but not that colorful rainbow stuff. I want just simple white light all around spread out evenly like yours.

 

Any suggestions for an RGB noob like me? I know my CPU cooler will never look as good as your watercooled setup but I prefer air cooled.

RGB doesnt mean rainbow. and its the only way you can adjust the color to what you like. i like purple on black cases. white leds on white cases. RGB allows me to use the same led strip on different cases without buying different led strips.

i have the NZXT Hue on my white PC-011 but its a bit overpriced when it comes to RGB for pc's, if you just want white there are cheaper led strips just powered by molex with no software, but its always good to have the option to change color. on my black dynamic i just removed the led strip and went with RGB fans, it projects light to the components without projecting to much light to the pc case

I never stated that it means rainbow. The ability to adjust color is unnecessary if one is looking for white light, as mojito is, and would be inefficient as well.

I meant rainbow stuff as in the some PCs I see on the internet. I want something similar to what hardstyle has. 

 

Anything you can recommend? I'm not sure what would look good for my case so any advice is really appreciated 🙏🙏

Without rows of fans as a light source such as Hardstyle has, I would think maybe cold cathode tubes? There are also multiple-LED strips, including varieties which are flexible. Either of these would provide a source of distributed white light. Perhaps Hardstyle has other suggestions as well.

The LED strip i'm using has a sticky back.  In theory you could use something similar and stick it to the roof, base of the PC case.  It's usb so can be powered via PC and turned on/off via remote control. 

 

The strip I used cost £8 (ASDA(uk) and is approx 2 metres long.

 

Edit:

 

Updated my signature wall to rape red and placed two LED strips on the back of my monitor.
