Bumped the RAM up to 16GB, bumped the main drive to a 500GB 850 EVO SSD, and I'm using a WD Blue 1TB drive in a Newmodeus optical bay adapter caddy.

Made a few changes to the rig.

Removed the GT730 as I reduced to three monitors all running on HDMI or DVI, no longer running the old 17" on VGA. Sold the E5-2680s and plopped in a pair of E5-2690s, also rearranged my storage a bit.

Corsair 800D
Seasonic X760 PSU
2x Xeon E5-2690 v1 @ 2.9 Ghz (All core turbo 3.3 Ghz, max turbo 3.8 Ghz)
2x Corsair H105 Hydro AIO
64GB Hynix DDR3 ECC 1333Mhz
Noctuas all around
Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1
Samsung Evo 850 250GB SSD (OS)
Intel 330 120GB SSD (Misc/Scratch)
2x Corsair Force LE 480GB SSD in Raid-0 (894GB usable)
2x WD Black 1TB
2x WD Black 2TB

Got almost 900GB of very fast storage for programs and games now.

Nice. I considered M.2 but I would need an adapter and I'm pretty sure my board will not support booting from the drive.

I know right? It's really cool and quiet too witch I find weird since the last dual-CPU workstation I saw was incredibly noisy.

In these parts you can get refurbished LGA1366 dual cpu workstations for the price of a good new i5 6600k build, witch is awsome - and the 3.3GHz dual X5680's really show their muscle in modern games witch take advantage of multiple cores (I tried Tomb Raider, Doom and Fallout 4 on it when I first got it) although some games like world of tanks don't run as well as on the i7. The thing takes almost half the time it takes my 3770k to render complex scenes, and viewport performance is better too, even if it's running on a slower video card. It also blows my i7 out of the water in 3dmark fire strike physx tests.

What I hate about the Z800 is that it doesn't have GB lan. It's a bloody workstation, how did they not put GB lan on it? It has two Broadcom lan controllers, and none can do 1000mbps.

Maybe you want to check the network config. HP specs shows gigabit LAN. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/dis … mr_na-c01709726

I did. I also installed the HP drivers off their website. It won't do gigabit on automatic settings, and there's no gigabit setting in the card's Advanced Tab > Speed and Duplex. I'm using a short CAT 6 lan cable btw

The cards are Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit... maybe it's because of windows 10? In any case I'm currently using a PCI-E D-Link DGE-560T card and it seems to work fine.

2012 13" Macbook Pro. It's the 'pro' model which means it has 'pro' features for 'pros', such as:
- Intel HD4000 graphics, with the AMD GPU that was optional in previous Macbooks no longer available
- SIGNIFIGANTLY worse onboard audio signal path than what was in the 2008-2010 Macbook Pro, and no line-in
- only 2 USB ports, crammed right up next to one another
- only one external video (Thunderbolt) port, which is crammed right between the Firewire port & USB ports
- in other words, if you plug in a single "fat" USB stick and FW400->FW800 adapter it is no longer possible to connect any other devices to make up for the built-in shortcomings such as an external keyboard, monitor, mouse, audio/MIDI interface, or even wired ethernet. Fuckings to Apple.

...but at least it has a headphone jack.

Apple has the best freaking touchpad there is. And makes up for all of those shortcomings...at least for me. It's sad that nothing in a Windows laptop compares. My 2011 MBP 15" is still going strong. 16GBs and an SSD have given it a few extra years of life.

I took the air compressor to my PC and thought I would take some pics for this thread. The case is a Lian-Li and it still looks great after eight or so years.

Current specs:
MSI Z77A-GD65
Intel 3770
16GBs RAM
MSI 660TI with Twin Frozr
Audigy RX, but I'm going to put my Titanium HD back.
VGA capture card
1TB SSD
1TB HD
Pioneer Blu-ray
Kingwin Fanless power supply

I don't feel any need to upgrade expect for maybe encoding videos faster.

Very nice!

I also got a 3770 in my main desktop and see no reason to upgrade. I will wait for Zen to come out, see what happens. Hopefully we get more cores for the same price out of it 😀

My 3770k @ 4 GHz is on par with my sister's 6600k in most tests, and a little faster in others, so there's really no reason to upgrade.

Same here. I'm a huge AMD fan - I've used AMD powered PC's up until 2007 and I'd love to have a high end AMD powered daily driver again.
