Ive probably typed up 5 replies to this thread and deleted them all...they just didnt seem to do it any justice. Phenomenal ( no pun intended) Quick question however....I perused the log quickly so i may have missed something, is that a simple single din car audio screen?

ps: lovely mugshot on the first pic...who's the blue man? ;)

Hey guys, last night I scored 12930 on 3Dmark 06 without overclocking the cpu.. I haven't done this in years. How does this score rank for today's systems?

Hm... I would've thought a 3870 X2 would give you a higher score.
OCing should raise that score a good bit.

So looking all over the net on CeBIT stuff and not seeing this case anywhere does that mean it didnt make it :( thats a shame? so if AMD was paying you for this to be done by CeBIT does that mean you have to eat the cost or what? If you dont want to answer any of those question I will understand was just curious. Either way it looks INSANE.

It didn't goto Cebit because of something that happened beyond my control. The project was finished as promised. AMD has paid in full, and plans to use it at Computex :Beer

lol @ YouTube comment.

I do think the Razer Lachesis Mouse and Lycosa Keyboard stole the show! I've heard from a lot of people interested in their products.

Phenom made the Razer's CEO's Blog

I think he would be very receptive to working with Mnpctech. Maybe some mods to the pc systems they use for their show displays.

i was wondering where can i find the specs of that monster ? :drool
it obviously has 2 hd 3870 X2, sword case, phenom processor

there's no such thing as absolute reality,
what you think you see is only as real as your brain tells you it is.

Thanks bro!

My photos are down.. This datacenter in the new blurb is where all of my photos resided... I'm still waiting for ETA on getting them back online as of saturday. If they're lost, I can't even imagine how much time it will take re-insert them back into all of my worklogs. I just might have to go on a serious drinking binge..lol, but I will re-insert them here as soon as possible! Luckily I have a seperate host for CaseModBlog.com

Texas-Based Server Provider Explosion Affects 9,000 Servers, 7,500 Customers

Houston, TX (AHN) -- An explosion Saturday evening at a Texas-based, privately held server hosting provider has caused server outages effecting 9,000 servers and 7,500 customers.

According to The Planet's website, at about 5 p.m. Saturday electrical gear shorted, creating an explosion and fire that knocked down three walls surrounding their electrical equipment room.

No injuries were reported and no servers were damaged or lost.

The Houston company, which provides servers for small and medium sized companies, said it has its entire support team working around the clock to get the servers back on line.

They estimate they will be up and running by Sunday afternoon.
