My new rig (again).

Post by Mystical_Titan »

Hey peeps. :)

I've made a build log of my new PC hardware, check it out here and let me know what you guys think!

Round 1 - The components

Round 2 - The build process

Round 3 is currently a work-in-progress and will focus on benchmarks.

A surprising amount of modern pseudoscience is coming out of the environmental sector. Perhaps it should not be so surprising given that environmentalism is political rather than scientific.

I am trying to sublimate my strong urges to sell what I have by building crude models of computers out of cardboard, plastic, and whatever other scraps I dig out of by hobby bin.

I was going to replace my B75M board with a Z77, and was researching this last Thursday when I came to my senses, interrogated myself on my reasons for wanting to do this, and came to my senses upon seeing that my reasons were silly and unwarranted.
