I was checking ASUSTeK website when i was surprised by this little fella: Rampage II Gene It's tiny.... but packs everything needed to make a quite powerful machine.... problem: costs more than 200€ so ... a PC build with it will cost quite something ... (specially if you pair it with 2 BFG Nvidia GTX 295 H2O, 6Gb DDR3 2000Mhz and a i7 Extreme CPU) ... and to keep things silent and cool, the V1... and this monster... or this puppy - hmmm ... 250+1200+500+1000+500+50 = 3500€ given or taken... pair it with a G9x and a G19, hmmm ... some G51 and the G25 (well... you buy 2 of G's series, you could as well buy the whole set) and a Samsung Led-TV ... That would power up a room :p but is around 5000€ ... ah well ...

So... today, after have some work done i solve to clean up and desktop since my sister is using it, she cares little over the dust that accumulates on filters... My computer case is very nice, a Thermaltake Tsunami, so i got the moment to clean up the cables as well, a year ago or so, i buyed a lcd panel for temperature monitoring and a card reader, sata plugs and usb extra plugs were freebies (even with the case usb plugs my motherboard still has room for more) by the time i connected everything and just rearrange the cables just enough to allow a good air flow. So today, i rearrange the cables not only for the air flow, but to give it a cleaner look, since the 5,25" panel has around 40 cables that was no easy task, but i'm happy with the result, even the graphic board agrees, since now it won't fire the fan into hi-speed (hi-noise) that easily. So... where is the fail? well... after all the work to clean and correct stuff, i ended up with this: Link (i wonder if this link works properlly) Well, not exacly that one, but you get the idea. A screw from the floppy drive went missing... just to be found right after close the case and connect all cables... oh well... i won't mess with the case any time soon again >_> *resumes work*

Well ... i'm dead tired, have a pile of work above me and it each time i try to reduce the pile, it increases size.... Hmm ... right... i won't sleep till i finnish this piece of code, so ... don't expect for me to be very cooperative into helping in something... In 5 days or so, we shall see if i'm alive after being up and wake working non stop for more that 4 days... not that i never did it before, but by the looks of it i gain a couple of years (or lose, depends on view point) each time i do it... So... 'till then folks *resumes work*
