Editor’s Note: First of all sorry for the bad quality images, winter is coming to my Greenland and it’s dark most of the day; resulting in high-ISO images with lots of noise 😦
Quite a few of us at DontCritMe are very fond of Cooler Master Storm keyboards, we’ve even given away a piece with Cherry MX Red switches!
The last time we had Battlestations week, I was living in Denmark studying webintegration, times have changed and I’m currently on the ground course for IT Support in the frozen wastes of Greenland. I still have my rig in Denmark except that I’ve salvaged my GTX 670 so I can have 2 running while I’m in Greenland.
CPU: i5-4570K w/ NH-D14 CPU cooler (The picture shows a NH-U14, but I’ve recently swapped it out for the bigger version)
GPU: Gigabyte WindForce GTX 670 & ASUS DCUII GTX 670
RAM: 4x8GB 1600MHz Corsair RAM
Sound Card: ASUS Xonar Essence STX
Storage: 256GB Crucial M4 SSD & 128GB Kingston SSD, along with 1x 4TB external harddrive
Case fans: 5x Noctua A14
I know the fans look bland, but I picked them because I prefer silence over anything else. I sleep same room where my computer are and Noctua is well-known for their silence. I’ve also removed the harddrive cage ever since, but because it’s dark most of the day during the winter I haven’t been able to take a decent shot.
My laptop is the same old Clevo P150-EM as last time:
GPU: GTX 670M
SSD: Samsung 830 256GB
Mice: Gigabyte M6900 x2
Mousepads: Mionix Sargas 900 & WotLK Collector’s edition mousepad
Keyboards: QPAD MK-85 w/ Cherry MX Blue, CM Storm Quickfire w/ Cherry MX Red
Headphones: AKG 701 & California Headphones Silverado
Achieva Shimian 2560×1440
Samsung S22B 1920×1080
Xerox XM7 1680×1050
ASUS MW221 1680×1050 x2
Plans for the future
I’m still searching for an internship spot in IT-Support, so my future is either finally getting an internship in IT Support or moving to Denmark to study coding college. If I do find an internship here in Greenland then I’ll be assembling a new desk, getting 2 more Achieva Shimian monitors and moving to a bigger place.
