Overlord-PC

Post by visham on Tue 4 Jan 2011 - 11:42

Bon... pa pu fr 1 tas grimace Smile Sel raison li apel Overlord-PC, c akz mo laptop apel Overlord-Laptop Razz

Built in January 2008 when I used to play up to 18 hours a day. Parts were originally selected to fit into a Thermaltake LANBOX Lite which I used to carry around to LAN parties etc, and later transferred to the current chassis.

Nowadays, it's a little more than a glorified HDTV/PVR. Badly needs a DX11-capable GPU + new power supply + more RAM for upcoming games. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with overall performance.

Specs:



Benchmarks:







Screenshots:
GRID - All in-game settings maxed out



Call of Duty: Black Ops

I got 7.2 on Windows Experience Index for my overclocked Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600. How come you got a better score than mine with that same CPU at its stock settings, visham?

The Thermaltake V9 is a very good-looking chassis. I sincerely think it would have been better showcased had it been placed on a desk. The Logitech X-530 are wall-mountable speakers. Why do you ill-treat them behind the curtains?

Also, how come there's no mention of your storage system(s)? Besides, with such a decent cooling system, why don't you give us some feedbacks in terms of temperatures and noise levels? Moreover, I'm sure everybody would have loved to see the interior of your computer.

Finally, I wish I had such a couch for watching movies on my PC. It looks so comfortable.

Cher missier sans comprend, Razz

1. No idea, probably having a good day Razz
2. I prefer to have a uncluttered desk. Tends to get pretty ugly during school days + I'm not into showing off Smile
3. For the same reason to ena 1 full-frontal setup - convenience. Works fine though
4. Internal : 1TB Samsumg HD103UI 5400rpm SATA 32MB (secondary), 160GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 8MB SATA (primary) External : 1 TB WD Elements

Noise levels are what i consider 'acceptable'. The V9 has a relatively open chassis, with very little sound dampening properties due to perforated surfaces almost everywhere for better airflow. There's a constant 'hum' coming from the chassis which disappears once I turn on the music or TV. Might post temps later on.

'Internals', kuma in fr twa cmpren, can't be arsed Razz

Well, if a neat environment equates to showing off then... Shocked

Doesn't the placement of your rear speakers affect your listening experience and/or the sound quality?

I believe in having the right setup for my needs/taste. As you can see, I try to keep my junk (plushies, printer etc) away from my working area. All I really need is my keyboard/mouse/screen.

Doesn't the placement of your rear speakers affect your listening experience and/or the sound quality?

No. These are 'blinds' which, as opposed to 'curtains,' have hard surfaces and empty spaces between each insert, allowing the sound waves to pass through without any significant dampening. The speakers sound the same whether I have the blinds covering them or not Smile

System Temps monitored for about 3 hours while playing CoD:Black Ops. In-game GPU usage oscillates between 95-100%, except during pre-rendered cut-scenes.

Room Temp ~ 32 Degrees (digital thermometer)

FANIN0 = CPU fan
FANIN1 = PSU fan

Case fan speeds vary based on PSU load/temp but cannot be monitored.

You simply cannot monitor the fan speed of your power supply unit on your operating system. That's because a monitoring utility software uses results obtained from the sensor(s) on the motherboard. The only way to do it is to mod the power supply unit to make its fan connect direct on the motherboard, which I doubt you would do. Also, the only power supply units which can be monitored by software to date are the Gigabyte Odin GT series. So, as a matter of fact, FANIN1 should be your chassis fan(s), the Antec Spot Cool and/or the PCI slot exhaust fan.

On another note, I would like to humbly request you to update your review by editing your initial post, not by posting a reply. However, you can post a notice for your update as a reply to let others know about it. This would make your initial post as a complete and well updated review.

Sorry mais MO PSU ena ene 3 pin fan connector, ki MWA in hookup lor MO motherboard kot sipozer hookup the so-called system fan. Alor FANIN1 is indeed MY bloody PSU fan Razz

My other fans use regular 4 pin molex connectors, which are hooked to the PSU via a 'fan only' cable whose voltage is varied based on PSU load/temp. These fan speeds cannot be monitored.

Note: It's actually an Antec Truepower Trio 430W, not an Earthwatts EA430 (no idea why I was thinking about that particular PSU while writing the initial post up) Specs Updated.

Fuck you! Mad

Below is what I was about to post before noticing what I quoted from you above...

I'm still not convinced, buddy. Your power supply unit, as you stated, is an Antec Earthwatts EA430. The cooling fan which comes that particular PSU is an ADDA AD0812HS-A70GL, which has only red and black coloured wires as shown in the first image below, i.e., it has only a 2-pin power connector. In other words, you cannot monitor that type of fan.




Also, ADDA specifies that the AD0812HS-A70GL has a rated speed of 3,000 RPM. So, with a 2-pin power connector than fan will only run at 3,000 RPM. Now, if that fan was to run at around 1,000 RPM as you have shown for FANINI, it would simply be unsufficient to cool that PSU considering its small size of 80 mm x 80 mm x 25 mm.

Now, the only way for you to prove what you have said earlier would be with images of your computer's interior, which you have been reluctant to provide so far.
That said, I really want to see your computer's interior.

I would love to see more power supply unit manufacturers implementing it in their products.
