Bonjour everybody! Je m'appelle 1100111010. I'm kinda new here. :P
About a week ago, I posted on someone's thread and some people noticed the specs of my computer on my profile... and some of them suggested me to post pictures of my machine on here (and some of them were skeptical about it). So without further ado, here's my computer!
This... is... the... awesomest computer in the history of mankind! It has a 2.2GHz AMD Turion whatever gayming processor. It can do 100,000 floating-point operations in just 1/0 seconds! It's SO fast, it can make a Lamborghini look like a Rickshaw! And YES, it can run Crysis 3 and it's graphics are so *cough* amazing, it'll make you cry! Now you're probably asking; "1100111010, where did you get such a beast of a machine?" Ohoo well, let me tell you my friends... this computer was given to me by a great man. A man with dignity, a man with *cough* knowledge, a man with power... the salesman! Now I realize that I am the chosen one and I will operate this great machine to save the whole gaming industry! Wish me luck, brothers! *Epic music playing on background*
Alright, alright, don't just leave... I was kidding!! :P
This is my computer, X-001...
I call it the X-001 because it's the first intel PC I had with an X on the processor number. (I know, I know, computer names are cliche these days, but what are you gonna do? You can't have a nameless computer) :D
Before we get started on the specs and everything, let me share some history about this machine. Back in March 2011, I bought an EVGA GTX590 graphics card from America, being enthusiastic about getting a new graphics card (and a complete idiot), I immediately installed it on my old tin-can computer... but unfortunately, my old CPU was a bottleneck for the new card and it's performance was worse than I expected. So two months later, I traveled to Australia, Indonesia and Singapore on vacation and acquired the rest of the hardware.
Here's some of the hardware before I assembled the computer. (Note that some parts have been upgraded or replaced)
Well, this is the inside of my machine (I've routed all the cables through the back of my case to increase airflow inside). It's using a 32nm intel Core i7 990X Extreme Edition CPU with 6 hyper-threaded cores, and it's being cooled by a Corsair H100 CPU cooler on a Gigabyte G1.Sniper Board. (It previously had a Corsair H60, but I replaced it with the H100 back in December 2011) The 990X also has an unlocked QPI multiplier! Which means the CPU's default frequency of 3.46GHz can be easily increased by just tweaking with the CPU clock ratio and the voltages. Oh, and it has six 4GB Corsair Vengeance memory modules. It previously had Corsair Dominator GTs, but I use them on my other computer now.
I've upgraded all the 120mm fans on my machine with Corsair SP120 High Performance Static Pressure fans last year. The temps are a little bit better now, but not much. :/
Here are my GPUs sitting on their PCI-E lanes. The one at the top is from EVGA and the one below is from Gigabyte. These are Nvidia GTX 590 dual GPU (1.5GB on each GPU) graphics cards. So these cards uses two GF110 GPUs on each cards with 512 CUDA cores (stream processors) on each GPU and it was manufactured in a 40nm process. I think the core clock on each GPU was at 630MHz and the shader clock was at 1260MHz. I forgot the memory clock speed. XD
This is the Gigabyte GTX 590 I acquired back in late 2011.
And to power all these components, I'm using a 1200W Corsair AX1200 fully modular PSU.
This is my array of Solid State Drives. I have two 128GB intel 330 Series SSDs on RAID 0. RAID basically gives you extra storage functionalities through redundancy. So, RAID 0 will provide significantly improved performance, but a single disk failure will destroy the whole array... which is why I have a 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black HDD for storage. :P
I used to have 4x OCZ Vertex 2 drives on RAID 0... but they suddenly died last year... so R.I.P. :(
And finally, this is the back of my machine... I know, I know, it looks like a mess, but no one's ever going to see it. ;D
Well, that's pretty much it. I'm sorry if my computer looks a bit dusty... I barely use it these days. The crazy thing about it is that I don't play a lot of games on it... I'm more of a computer enthusiast kind of person than a gamer. I just love technology. Anyways, I hope everyone liked my computer. I know I haven't covered everthing about it... but I don't think I'd have enough time to do that. :P
And to anyone who don't believe me, here's a potato for you. I hope you like it. :3
