Can I ask what the model name of your laptop is? I'm looking to get a laptop a few months down the line, and that one caught my eye.

 

Thanks!

Thank you smily_headphones1.gif
It's Samsung ATIV book 9 lite. An almost ultrabook but with AMD quad-core APU-CPU.
So when it's not the most powerful of laptops it's sufficient for my needs. What I liked was the size, weight and the fact it has an SSD drive. All my files are on an external USB 3.0 drive anyway so 120 Gb SSD is more than enough for Win 8.

Hmmn I've had a look at the specs and I think it's a strong contender. I've recently gone back to study so something like this will be perfect for using to and fro the university. Btw do you know if the SSD can be replaced?

 

Thanks!!

 

Now to save up:(

You could but you'd have to remove the whole back cover. And the drive is mSATA.


Here's nice article about disassembling of ATIV book 9 lite.

Yep nice - should be a doddle in case I decide I need a little more memory.

 

Thank you! :D

The PC is hiding under the desk. It's an i7 / 12GB RAM / 10 TB HD with NVIDIA GTX 580 running Windows 7.

I just ordered all the parts I will need for my new rig. This doesnt replace my gaming/HTPC rig which will remain hooked up to my 40 inch LCD, this will just be for my desk, listening to music, organizing music, emails, comics, torrents/seedbox, low end emulation etc.;

 

 

- Streacom FC8 EVO fanless case

- MSI Z87i mini ITX MOBO

- Haswell 4770S 65w 3.1 ghz

- 8 gb Corsair Low Pro RAM

- Samsung 840 PRO 256gb SSD

- PICOPSU 160W and AC adaptor

- 2 tubes of Arctic Silver

- Windows 8.1

 

 

 

I will just hook it up to my external HD for now but eventually I will build a NAS server. I already have an unused Asus 24" 1080p monitor and then Ill just hook it up to my Audioengine D1 via TOSLINK and I will be good to go. Completely fanless and silent.

 

Ill post pics here when its done, I love building PCs I am stoked! This is my first fanless build so it will be a new challenge I hope.

The recon3d in the pic has been replaced with a ZXR.

 

And here's a shot of my old rig:

 

 

I like what you did with the carbon fiber vinyl(or Di-Noc?) on the back panel, might have to do that to my white 600t.  And did you build that fan hood yourself?(you answered already)  Because my biggest gripe with the 200mm Spectre pro is how horrible the cone of the airflow is...huge dead spot in the middle and pretty much spits the air out the sides.

Highlights of my new Digital Storm unit:

 

Intel Core i7 4930K 3.4GHz (Overclocked to 4.2GHz) (Six-Core)

ASUS Sabertooth X79

32GB DDR3 2133MHz RAM

256GB SSD (Samsung 840 Pro Series) [Boot]

2TB Western Digital RE [Secondary]

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB

850W Corsair RM 80+ Gold

Hard Drive Hot Swap Bay

ASUS Blu-Ray Player/DVD Writer (BC-12B1ST)

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional (64-Bit Edition)

 

Clean look inside. Case (Corsair Obsidian 550D) is bigger than I expected but plenty of room to play in there. Still deciding what to do for audio. Wallet must recover a bit.
