I was given some Christmas money, and I snagged the Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel.  I've borrowed a wheel from Nicao in the past, and loved it, so now I have my own.  Once you get used to a good, sensitive wheel, you can never go back.

Over the past couple of days, I've been able to score another Raptor HDD which will be put in RAID pretty quick.  As well I've also got some PC4000 ram which really helped out my overclock tremendously.

I just installed a new 2500 Barton (week 0347, LOCKED) that Zeus was kind enough to send down to me (seeing that the place I won it from wouldn't ship to the US). Anyway, the CPU is multi locked (won't boot at anything except 11x), the good news is I set it to 11x200 and it booted into windows at stock volts (1.65) and finished 12 hours of Prime95, Folding@Home and 3DM2K1 looping. They were all running at the same time and I didn't get a single error, the CPU did get a little warm though (40c) with my computer room door closed and 3 OC'd systems running. So far it's a great CPU, now I've got to see how far I can get the FSB with a multi of 11x........ ;)

Old Volcano 7+ CPU temp was 40c/104F System 31C/87F
Silent Boost Cooler Thermaltake CPU 37C/98F System 25C/77F
Both were takin after running 1942 DC for 2 hours, reading was taking thru Bios to.
May not like seem like much of a drop but man it is so much more quiet now, I can actaully hear myself think again.  (not like thats a good thing)

480 Thermaltake PSU  So far runs great, fan control is cool and now I am ready for when I upgrade video card.

Vantec Harddrive cooler Looks sweet and does actaully cool the harddrive not huge differents but looks and fit so much better then old one.

Ah, it's been awhile so here goes . . .

I snagged up another 120GB HD.  This one is IDE however, and it replaced a 60GB drive.  I'm doing a whackload of video editing, and it was eating up harddrive space in a hurry.  Right now I have 400GB.

I also picked up a Logitech 2.4GHz Cordless Freedom Joystick.  Call me a missleman impersonator, but it's a good stick.

Lastly, I just picked up a SV421USB KVM.  It is 4 client USB KVM/Switch.  All connections are USB and it can handle peripherals as well as KB/M.  Very handy outfit.
