Leckerton UHA-6S II?

 

or...

 

 

APEX GLACIER?

Huh, I guess you're right...

Sending out a new monitor before receiving the old one is rare these days too.

$3400 buys a 12-core (not that you can't add that to anything else) but wait, you have a 12-core?

Lolnope, but I do have a quad core Xeon 3.2ghz, 128gb SSD (Equivalent price of a 2tb hdd) plus 2 1tb hdds, 16gb of ram...

That totals out to:

~$3200 if you can't read it...

So dilemma, the new C5 makes me want one. Should I sell eQ-5 and 3.Ai to fund C5+ODAC+UM reshell route, or wait a while and go for Mad Dogs+ODAC+UM reshell as per previous intentions.

Mad Dogs! biggrin.gif

If you can wait for a while (a few weeks probably?) You can listen to my MDs if we can meet up down in Port Land.

And as we all know where San Francisco is...

You didn't know they were in the same hospital? 

 

Yeah, was just going to use this rig for bedside + movies with the HE-400 and keep the mini-X (currently my bedside setup, but the blue LED is so frickin annoying) with the DAC1 and LCD-2s near my desktop. CIEMs will be driven straight out of a Clip Zip.

 

I need a new closed HP...C5s will help drive that as well. Had T50RPs, but I suck at modding. These seem like good value ATM, and I missed the SRH940 sale with TTVJ.

 

ODAC has a smaller footprint than the Modi though. But probably will sell the 3.Ai, not getting a ton of use. Don't have a portable amp though so without the C5 Mad Dogs would be sort of pointless as I have to use them out and about. Ugh.

 

 

Nope I didn't.

 

Get the reshells first imo. Then when you have enough get the mad dogs + c5 together?

Reminds me my new white water tubing arrived today. In the proper 10/13mm size as well. Hopefully I have enough for a GPU waterblock since I'll probably pounce on the next gen cards. Rumour has it that the GTX Titan is a limited edition run of 1000ish though.

Also wifey dodged the uni question; if its a intentional dodge ignore this post but if you just missed it tell your needy sica what she wants to know.

Hmm. Haiburi seems pretty active over at OCN, ~find me someone to custom acrylic build something haiby :DD

especially more befitting for the badass insane doctor. The rising and resoluting tension I've felt in that song just fits in for someone that has seen the end and is slowly coming to acceptence that she's now a eldritch space organ-slug. Like the final final barrier for true insanity.

Oh, most definitely. I ran through Feedbacker in the background just as I do for every VN playthrough, and was surprised to find how it synced with Saya perfectly. Not the first thing that came to mind though as I was more than a little creeped out by the VN. Drone/noise just works really well for Gen works (even Tsukehime at times)

Yeah, opposite here. With the exception of the TH600 (the sexiest headphone conceived yet), would go with wood anytime. My friend's Magnum V4s makes me want Grados ~~ will wait until I have funds and HP2s show up in the FS forums.

Wonder if he'll do custom cocobolo cups for my CAL. Phwwooor.

Niceu! My experience with water cooling has been fairly limited to watercooling an xbox 360...

I'm a little tired of waiting for the next gen tbh. I might stick a H80 on my GTX460 for now. It's too friggin loud!

Glacier's too pricey. Leckerton was the original plan before I thought of the ODAC, guess I like the idea of separate units, ODAC at home, C5 on the go. Will probably have to wait until HB stocks them so I can listen and decide.

Too much specs for me, can't stand all that power. Did I mention that I use Pentiums?

 

TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT. Yay, I was worried about shipping for a while, but now I can just drop by. Yeah call me up when you're going. 

 

I think if I get some hands-on with the gear I'm planning on, will probably make things easier.

Tsukihime is his work too?

You can ask, but that's probably like, overkill for just a humble CAL. BBUT, it will be the most Phwwooor CAL ever though. I think a Picolino-cabled CAL though.

Are GPU heatsinks generally interchangable from different product lines? Like if you got the H80 could you use it on the 7 series?

Gambatte! You'll probably like them after about 10 minutes. Don't let your initial initial impression sway your mind on them!

I also know where your username comes from now :D
