If you're raised in Vietnam back in the '70s, you'll be taught to make anything with a blowtorch, welder, and some tape.

The wobble problem goes away once you have stuff on the desk though. 

 

It's not exactly wobbly either, just a poor choice of words. It bends a bit is what I mean to say.

Every desk is like that though unless it's just one solid piece. Great desk for the price though (amazing actually). TBH I just want to replace the ash wood w/ bamboo and the steel w/ aluminum, but there's the NextDesk Terra for that.

Just a huge headache needing to re-install/download all my games and programs.  

 

Also a kind of stupid question:  If I only put my OS and maybe some programs like Photoshop on  the ssd and all my games and programs on my other 500gb hdd would I still get faster loading times with games even if they're installed on the hdd?

Definitely clean install. Use Ninite Installer to install a bunch of programs quickly. Just backup whatever files (game saves, important files, etc.) you need/move them to an external hard drive/cloud and do a clean install. Best way. Cloning is more of a PITA than clean install IMO.

Haha.

Finally?

 

I've been doing it. I've posted a few other builds already that all had proper(or as best as I can without buying any management 'stuff' or going uber HAM on cable modifications) cable management.

 

Anyway, this isn't final. This cable management is only interim for when all my new parts come, then, better management and evenness wil be done

Guess what?

 

The 'AMD CfX' bridge I bought two weeks ago almost just came in today(it was supposed to arrive Nov 30, but guy didn't ship until Dec 1)

 

........it was an Nvidia SLI bridge

 

His description said he was selling a bunch of AMD Crossfire bridges and that I won't gett one of the same

 

Well this leads me to believe he randomly picked up a bunch of these at a PC repair shop or some thrift place and thought they were all fricking Crossfire bridges.

 

....well at least I got a full refund. I just bought a legit CFX bridge from a seller, unopened and the same item in pic for $5.5. I got a $4 refund from this SLI bridge so I guess I paid $1.5 for a CFx bridge.

I just noticed the pronunciation thing. Is it actually "rade-on", "rad-e-on", or "raid-e-on"? I say raid-e-on.
