Anyway, the guy Niles who runs it.. What a great guy to do business with.. Nice, helpful and informative.


He's a good dude. Only thing I didn't care for was the colors. The 2 colors I ordered were WAY lighter than what was pictured. They both looked like they had set in the sun for a few days. The DazMode stuff I got is the exact same weave as the MDPC though.

What all did you end up ordering? How much small, medium, and HS?


For mine I got 40 meters of the small (20 of each color I was doing), 15 meters of SATA (10 of one color, 5 of the other), 1 pack of SATA shrink, and 1 pack of his small pre-cut shrink. I ended up using some shrink I got at Fry's though...it seemed to shrink tighter and didn't melt/burn as easily. I also got some rivets too. They're good rivets but the paint doesn't hold up as well as he says. Granted you won't find ANY rivets that'll hold paint well but I thought his would.

ETA:
I sleeved everything that came with my AX850, 8 SATA data cables (haven't done power yet but I should have enough), 6 fans, and all the case connections on my Phantom. I still have a good bit left over.

Well ordered some from dazmode and the quality isn't the same.

Weird. Mine was the same stuff just a richer color.

So i have been thinking i may start doing a little overclocking for the first time.
Are the guides on OC.net good to go buy when learning and starting small?

Is it better to start off with my gpu or cpu? or does it matter?

I reset everything back to default last night, I think I got lost on the CPU lottery because I have one of the easiest CPU's to OC and I just can't get it stable if I start raising it.

Also RAM is the easiest to OC but you don't gain much from it.

I have a surprise for the PC geeks here.. Atcually more like a spoil of riches or completely idiotic. I say the latter.

Fixed the motherboard heatstinks so no decals are shown. Just installed blocks and backplate. My loop inside the SM8 is really to go, just need to slide the MOBO tray inside and start connecting the 4 fittings I have left. Below are just teaser picks. This build still has a lot left to go and I have huge plans for it once Haswell drops and I upgrade form this 3770K.

Now here is the Geek Porn I was talking about below, just 2 cards I have laying around not in use.

1 x GTX 690
1 x MSI HD 7950 Boosted Twin Frozen
Along side the 2 Titans with Blocks.

I can take one of those cards if you feel bad not using them

Eta: FYI I am now posting on overclock too...

I got my build done too

But I didn't realize pin placement mattered when I was sleeving my 24pin (it doesn't for the PCI and 8pin) so now I have to go back and figure out the pin placement

Edit: Didn't you say you bought a number of bitcoins a while back? The exchange rate is insane now. It went from about $13/coin about 8 months ago to $61/coin now. I really really want to try to satrt mining but I feel like it's all way too complex
