I have no idea what's happened to mining recently. Seems like Bitcoin is finally somewhat dying off or at least the consumer hype around it is dead.

I still have my faith in it in some way shape or form. 

 

There is a level of resistance built into markets like these and this should be, for the most part, another one of those resilience moments of drops and raises to a more manageable level.

So I put together the parts last night and it wouldn't turn on for more than 2 seconds before it shuts down. I realized I forgot to plug in the secondary power pins from the mobo to the psu or whatever it is called. However after that everything is up and running :) I wish I done this earlier but I was lazy for a few years lol

 

I ordered some fans that came in today that I'll install later and I'll pick up a dvd drive and a fan controller tomorrow when I go to microcenter.

Sounds good. You don't really need a dvd drive anymore, it seems so weird to me. My mITX build I'm doing will have windows installed via USB drive, a first for me smily_headphones1.gif

Well I have a portable one but not sure if I'll just use that. I'd like to use my bays for something however.

 

I do still rip cds and such so still use it sometimes :) I installed WIndows via usb as well and it's quite convenient. I used to run linux and every installation I made was usb so it would be strange to do it differently. I'm installing all the drivers and programs and such so will probably take up my weekend.

I usually like to use USB disk drives unless there's a door on the case cuz I like a clean look.

Could someone please steer me towards a nice Bluetooth dongle? I don't want to get a cheap 2 one, but like a nice 4.0 one around $20 that has a nice range and doesn't look too bad. (Kinda pointless I know, but I just want something that will last a good while) Thanks.

I have an ASUS BT-400 that has worked reliably.  My new motherboard has BT integrated, but it seems the BT-400 works better.  I have not tested range beyond 10ft radius, but I would imagine a performance drop for data transfers beyond that point.

 

They sell at Microcenter for $12.99, and I see it on Newegg for $19.

IDK why, but Newegg always has a Daily Deal on ADATA or Team Vulcan RAM.

After considering the economy of a video game I'm playing, I've decided to write my microeconomics work on them should the need arise.
Dat free market economy
Dat supply&demand
Dat scarcity
Dat variation of real life money items' in game credit price based on location

I love Plugable because they try to make sure their products can function WITHOUT drivers. They provide drivers if it absolutely needs to. For Windows 8 and above, you shouldn't need drivers and Microsoft provides Bluetooth drivers. Broadcom drivers are a nightmare from what I've heard and the bluetooth ones have caused BSODs for some.

oh I'll probably get this one instead, the driverless and the fact that it's pretty much universal is nice, I overlooked Linux support completely. On a side note I couldn't find anywhere to buy the itx z77 Asus board and got an asrock extreme4 instead, kinda worried about the brand but its actually pretty nice, I have my 3570k at a nice 4.3ghz completely stable and have my kraken x40 installed, it's nice and I want to buy some quieter fans so I can over clock a bit more, my r4 doesn't really get too great of airflow ATM, some good fans would be nice.

Get some Cougar CF-V12Hs for intake (currently about $12 each on Newegg) or go cheap and get 4 Cougar Turbines on Newegg for $30. Man, I don't know any good 140mm fans with high SP... I heard the Noctua NH-A14 (whatever it's called) was pretty good.
