I think you should have gotten a bigger case.

Lord Xeb 03-29-2009 04:02 PM

<.< that case all I could afford at the time. If I had a choice, I would have gotten an Antec 900 :D Also, Ubuntu boots in about 28s <.< And to my desktop in about 5s. Windows boots in about 45s and is to my desktop in about 15s.

And does that graphics card work ok with Linux ? It's certainly a good one, but the ATI drivers on Linux ...

Sweet rig.
Though overclocking your CPU like that will probably reduce its lifespan...

Lord Xeb 03-29-2009 09:17 PM

Yes, it works quite well actually. The newest drivers from ATI work really well :D Though the tearing in games and stuff is not gone, it is better. Also, Compiz runs like it is a god. There is no lag on anything. <.<


Also, I know Overclocking my CPU will reduce its lifespan, but if you keep it below the "Intel Recommend Maximum Voltage" it will be fine for several years (or so they say). I have had it running at 3.8GHz (400*9.5) @ 1.45v :D but they heat was insane. 76C after 5 runs with Intel Burn Test! D: But my Ultra Kaze fixed that >.> I get 71C now.

Pretty cool desktop...

If I had the money, I would buy one of these

A Nvidia Tesla Personal Super Computer for under $10K

why did you slap a 32 bit system on it?

Lord Xeb 03-31-2009 03:31 PM

Um because that is what my Step-Dad gave me and I do not like mucking with 64-bit since I have had problems before (already messed with Ubuntu 64-bit and it was a pain).
