Windows 7: Show Us Your Rig [6]

Ok to answer all you guys, my mobo has 4 back USB3 ports, of which I need 2. The front ones I connect my Ipad3 to because the USB3 have 10watts of juice, and the New Ipad is a power hungry something something. Even if I didn't need the ports, it would drive me crazy to have a cable that is not hooked into its bay inside my computer...OCD I guess. As for the ram coolers, I don't need them, but they help out with some of the heat dissipation around that area since I am loop cooling and don't have the direct advantage of a CPU fan, not to mention I noticed that ram coolers keep dust off of ram...a reverse vacuum if you will....and I like to watch bright things spin when my nightly pain meds kick in...what can I say, I have a boring life. As far as Newegg goes, sure I can get stuff from there, but since I am located in Eastern Europe, it means asking family in the states to order it, then send it in a package which can cost up to a 100 dollars, because you're not just going to send 1 cable in a package, when I want something I get a bunch of stuff to make it worthwhile, but it's not a problem. Here in EU we have something called Allegro, its basically Amazon for EU. So any part I could buy in Newegg, I can order here, without having to shell out an extra Benjamin.

That's as good a reason as any chap, I can't criticise anyone for buying things just for looks

LOL! I'm the same way. Also, non-functional ports would drive me nutz! If that's OCD, so be it!

Very organized Paul but you have much desktop space going to waste. Y'all have seen what mine looks like.

Thanks Ralph, I gave the Newegg links for references to find stuff in your corner of the world. I know what you mean about orphaned cables, I even hooked up the IE1394 and I have no blooming idea why or what it's for.

If I recall, ie1394 replaced parallel scsi and I think its for audio/visual, I would turn that off if you're not using it, its just eating up cycles during bootup time and increasing it.

Good idea but then I'd have a non-functioning port, that I don't use.

I turn off stuff like Serial COM1 ports, firewire, its just less things your computer has to boot up and less cycles eaten.

Yeah USB3 is taking over, and I don't blame them, I like USB3, I have two USB3 externals and I get speeds of around 130mbs of transfer on say a 10gb file. Not too bad I guess.
