New CPU Assembler

>> Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Just 1 week ago, I receive a call from my father saying that my house's pc has K.O. - ed. It's an aged pc, which I expect it might KO someday, so I'm not really surprise anyway. After I searched for the parts and calculated the price, with a budget of 2k, I bought these parts:

The parts will be further labeled in the latter parts of the post.

I decided to reused some parts of my old pc, since they're still can be used. I brought and reused this display card from my pc in Cyberjaya, and i got a new one for it :)

Inner view of the casing (Cooler Master Chasis CM 690) .

The parts are scattered on the table (for quick and easy access) .

And of course, there're times when you got no space to place everything on, so I have used the sofa of my house. Certainly, I got a lot of scoldings from my mum >.<

A most handy and important tool in assembling a pc.

Outer layers of the casing are removed, for the installations of fans and dvd drive. After that, I started to install the parts into the casing.

Half way through [with just Motherboard, CPU, Heat sink and PSU(Power Supply Unit) installed].

80% done.

The build under beta testing.

Yeah. It works. Therefore, I proceed to add in things and wrap it up.

The final build of the pc (after adding in a reused dvd drive and RAM into it). Here it is.

The specifications are as below:

Gigabyte EP45-UD3L @ Intel P45 chipset - RM 400

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50GHZ - RM 680

2 X Kingston: 4GB - KVR800D2N5 - RM 140 + 2 X Crossair 1 GB - Reused --> 6 GB @ 800 MHZ

Display Card
Nvidia Geforce GT 8500 @ 459 MHZ @ 512 memory - Reused.

Seagate 500GB @ 16M SATA 2 - RM 195

Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - OEM @ 500 W - RM 165

DVD Writer
Samsung 22X SH-S223F @ SATA - RM 75 + Sony (unknown) @ IDE - Reused

Cooler Master Chasis CM 690 - RM 260

2 X Chasis Fan - RM 60

Total = RM 1975.

All the other parts including keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers and monitor are reused back as well. It's cheap build anyway. In total, I used up around 4 hours assembling this new CPU(including taking photos >.<). Have to get this out as soon as possible as I'll need to complete report with Matlab. That's all. See ya.


Internet Explorer (IE) Vs Mozilla

>> Friday, March 20, 2009

Well, I found this somewhere. It particularly matched my usage of Internet Explorer (IE), I couldn't agree more. However, I would like to change the green zone of the pie chart to " downloading torrents" as my Mozilla Firefox doesn't respond to torrents (which I don't know why, lol) and I basically won't use IE for surfing the internet either.

>> Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard is the ultimate gaming keyboard, which could bring success in your gaming instantly. There are 12 programmable G-keys, with up to 3 macros per key which means you can get upto 36 macros.The most amazing feature is the color game panel LCD display with a resolution of 320 x 240 which is designed to display game stats, system information, VoIP information and even play back videos.

It comes up with different colors of keyboard key colors but the base color black has been kept similar in all. The keyboard is such a pretty gadget that even if you aren't a gamer, you would want to have it.

Other features include a built in Macro Record key, which lets you record macros instantly. There are 2 built in USB 2.0 ports, plus intelligent cable management and one touch controls for instant media access.

Ok, I'm late for posting this. The product has been released for 2 months yet I didn't notice it. Anyway, it is nice to have this kind of keyboard even you aren't a gamer. The price will be around RM 750 if it is available in Malaysia.


A Tragedy

>> Tuesday, March 17, 2009

The Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, while visiting a primary school class, found themselves in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead the discussion of the word "tragedy". So the illustrious Rev Jackson asks the class for an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy." No," says the Great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy." I'm afraid not," explains the exalted Reverend Al. "That's what we would call a great loss. " The room goes silent. No other children volunteered.

Reverend Al searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?" Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raises his hand. In a stern voice he says: "If a plane carrying the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy." Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson and Sharpton, "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

"Well," says little Johnny, "because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either!!!

The silent night is killing me, particularly boredom. Everyone has went back to hometown (since Monday is a holiday), and I am here.

I think I myself should study, but I just can't keep it going on. Occasionally, I committed few clicks on my computer.

I just browsed through some friends' photo. They are studying overseas, having fun and get along with foreigners.

Actually, I am quite fond of studying overseas. Still wondering whether should I go for it last time? Bah, my parents don't have that money and I don't have the qualification to get any scholarship either.

Looking forward to a chance of living in overseas, perhaps in future?
