Ok, everyone...been quite excited here lately, got a lot of stuff going on at the Trubyd44 residence! Today my buddy is doing an unboxing of one of his GTX590s. As you will see from the video that the boxing accesories and build quality are quite impressive. The card itself looks fantastic and it looks as if the Nvidia engineers stayed up all night on designing the card. Then the engineers at EVGA took it one step further. You cannot go wrong with this card. Enjoy! Trubyd44

I was completely amazed at this benchmark run!!! It is incredible what 24 threads will do for parallel work. I had some initial issues with the build, but I'm sure it was due to lack of experience on my part using a dual CPU motherboard. I am back on my feet now and am really pleased with what I'm seeing so far from it. Watch this benchmark run...don't blink! HEHE :D Enjoy!

Unboxing and Review of the New SCYTHE KazeMasterPRO Fan Controller. It has a very clean and classy look with awesome functionality and an easy-to-read display. In my opinion it is a lot better than some of the 'crazy' type fan controllers out there.

Long awaited review of my Gaming computer. It is done with my new HD Camera...but a less than stellar HD Camera. The JVC-GCFM1. The camera does fine, but needs a lot of light to show a good picture. My specs are in the opening credits. Enjoy!

Ok, here we go! I am doing a how to video on installing the Koolance GTX480 waterblock onto an EVGA GTX480. I think this is going to be awesome for anyone out there that has wanted to do this before, but was unsure. Also, for those of you that are experts, it's fun to watch me play with all the cool hardware! Also, I am learning more and more about Sony Vegas, I am now cutting videos, speeding up stuff as appropriate and adding audio tracks. Cool! Thanks Harald! The videos are in 4 parts as follows: Part 2: Tools, I/O Bracket & Screw Removal Part 3: Stock Heatsink Removal & Graphics Card Prep Part 4: I/O Bracket Installation & Waterblock Prep Part 5: Apply Thermal Grease, Mount Waterblock & Finish (Part 1 was the Unboxing video) Please comment and subscribe!!! Thanks to everyone! Enjoy!

Ok guys, here is a fun short video of a mini-LAN that we have every once and a while. Usually a buddy of mine will come over and we'll play L4D, L4D2, Battlefield 2 (still a great game) and do some overclocking. My room turns into a sauna, but we order Pizza and have a great time! You will also get a sneak peak of my SR-2 Build, my buddy's GTX480 SLI build and finally a look at my son's build. Interested in where I bought the decals? Please visit: http://martinfusion.com/ He can do any type of decal you want, is very talented and very fast. All this at reasonable pricing! Tell him you were referred by Trubyd44! Enjoy

Hey! Here is the unboxing of Corsair's flagship power supply --the AX1200 1200W beast. It is one heck of a power supply and as of right now, I can't think of any other power supply that I would want over this one if price wasn't an issue. The power supply packaging and quality is unmatched. It has a huge single 12V rail and can power almost any computer out there. A very nice PSU indeed. Enjoy, Trubyd44

Ok, with my brand new circuit installed I am able to run a true test on my system as to how much power it is using. I have found out that the power draw is more then I even first suspected!!! A secondary question is asked to EVGA...how do they think that their SR-2 1200W PSU can power such a build as seen on the internet??? I don't think it is possible at stock settings, let alone overclocked setting. Please watch and you shall see. Enjoy

Ok guys...here is my first video in quite a while. I guess its been about 3 months since I uploaded my Premier Build with Quad GTX480s on the SR-2 motherboard! It's been too long. Well, for most of you, you know that I sold my Premier Build to get some money to buy the car of my dreams. Well, here it is, a 2009 Nissan GT-R Premium. I had looked at some new 2010 GT-Rs, but was able to save over $15K by getting a 2009. The car had only 2500 miles on it when I purchased it, so it is as close to brand new as you can get!!! I am so thrilled! The good news, is that I should be starting up some computer videos as well. I have a new 'toned down' build that I am using and am very pleased with, especially since I have a GT-R in the garage too. Thanks for everyone's emails and great comments and of course for your patience. Enjoy, Trubyd44

Part 3 has me removing more tubing and finally removing the waterblock. Live recording shows a hilarious mistake too, before doing the series of videos for this re-install of a waterblock, I had never spilled any coolant inside a case. I have spilled coolant 3 times inside the case during filming!!! They were all small amounts, but still...I was focusing on what to say and trying to show everything. Please don't laugh too hard. :) Next - Part 4: Coating and socketing CPU Enjoy!

Now let's take a closer look at the EVGA SR-2 HPTX Motherboard. I go over the entire motherboard and try to point out all the features that I notice on the motherboard --in case anyone is thinking on spending the $600 for it. It has a huge amount of features including SATA III & USB 3.0! There are also some EVGA only features as well. Enjoy!

Ok guys/gals: I am really excited about this video. Ever since I built my Mega Gaming Computer build with the EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard with 4-Way GTX480s, I haven't necessarily been happy with my computer case. While the Mountain Mods U2-UFO case is nice and built well, it is just too big and not my style. I kept looking on the internet to find a case that would fit my hardware including dual PSUs and I couldn't find one. The closest case that I could find was the Lian Li P80 case, but it isn't necesarily my style either. What would be great would be to modify Corsair's awesome Obsidian 700D / 800D cases, right? WELL, HERE IT IS!!!! My buddy exclusily did the work on this and did a fantastic job. He spent many hours measuring and cutting to make sure everything was perfect. Well, he succeeded gloriously! Please watch the video and comment! After I get my hardware installed, my buddy will be selling these cases with the SR-2 mod to perspective customers. Please email me if you are interested.

Here is an ASL video of the great song Your Guardian Angel by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus as performed by two different people --shak3nNstirr3d and RaeBear55. I have always been fascinated with sign language and have always wanted to learn. My son and I have learned many signs by watching ASL covers on YouTube so I wanted to share two of my favorites of all time. They both do a wonderful job, but you can tell that they both sign differently. There are a handful of signs that they perform differently throughout the song along with a different style. I also got to practice more with my Sony Vegas PRO 9.0 video editing software. I can only fathom that I haven't even scratched the surface of what the program can do. I am learning with each upload though. Please comment below on which you prefer! (Two things, I wish Rachel's didn't end early and I wish Liz's video quality was a little better) Don't you have a new camera Liz!?! :D Please check each of their other ASL videos as they are all very good! I hope Liz (shak3nNstirr3d) and Rachel (RaeBear55) are happy with what I have done. I really appreciate them letting me put this video together and I hope this gets them back in the mood for doing some more ASL Covers --as they haven't done any in a while! :) Enjoy! Even computer people!

Well viewers, what can I say? Today we have my computer finally finished! My buddy and I have worked very long and hard to get it finished and get it finished perfectly.

Ok guys & gals, here is the new Premier Build, actually it is more than that...the computer seen here is going to be so incredible. No expense was spared in hardware, cooling, or accesories. There is a mountain of top of the line equipment here and will definately be the baddest computer I have ever built for myself or someone else. The specs are unrivaled on anything seen on YouTube and I can imagine around the world. I honestly believe that this will be an unmatched showcase. Please follow through the long video of the Hardware overview. It took my buddy and I a heck of a long time to film and edit this video. Please Enjoy! ...and stay tuned for the final build video and testing.

Complete review of the Texas build. I think I do a fairly good job going over the components and build. I talk about problems that I had building the computer and go over what I thought was best as far as the setup and design. Even if I can't get the RevoDrive X2 to work, I think this is going to be one heck of a build. Enjoy,

Here is the performance review of the comparison between the Koolance CPU-350 and the CPU-360. There is a performance boost from the waterblock, but it is only worth it to someone who wants the latest and best. Build quality on both units are superb, but I prefer the look of the CPU-360. Enjoy!

Ok, here is my very first video uploaded to YouTube. I decided to do it on the brand new game just out on Febuary 11th, 2010. It is a 'First Look' at S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat. The game is a DX11 game and has awesome graphics. I am using an old video camera of mine for the video, but I have a new HD camera on it's way where I will record future videos using it.

Ok, here is the completed build overview. I have been busy building a few computers in parallel (like some of my water loops) and have had a hard time uploading and editing videos. :( I enjoyed this build and the client was wonderful to work with. There were some setbacks and quirks with this build, but that is expected with all my builds. HAHA. Anyway, please enjoy! Trubyd44

Here is another look at Metro 2033. I think this is my third or fourth video showing how hard the game is on hardware. I think I've finally won!!! I can now play Metro 2033 @ 2560 x 1600 under the highest settings. It isn't a slam dunk, but it is definately playable and I look forward going through the game again at these settings. No more 'smallish' 1920 x 1200. My setup does and excellent job, and I am afraid no ATI setup can get the job done, not necessarily because the ATI 5000 series cards are not powerful enough, but the game was written for Nvidia. Enjoy!

Finally a new video!!! Today we have an awesome internally watercooled build going to a client in Virginia. The build is using the Case Labs T10 case which is huge and very customizable for any type of watercooling. We are using Intel's Hexa-core monster the Core i7-3960X matched with the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme and 32GB of Corsair DDR3-1866 memory. It is primarily a gaming computer and has four GTX580 3GB cards from EVGA. The design on the watercooling loop is awesome and makes it easy for the client to vent and drain so he can easily upgrade to the GTX680s in the future! Sorry it has been so long since a video, but thank you for your patience, more to come!

Hello guys! Today I am doing an unboxing of the ASUS Sabertooth P67 B3 motherboard.

We've had somewhat of a rough going on things, fitment issues on the mobo tray, defective motherboard and some paint issues.

Ok, part two is showcasing the critical planning on how to remove the tubing so as to not spill any on components (also some innovative fittings to assist) and how to support electronic components that are watercooled --as to not break anything. Like the old saying says, "Measure twice and cut once." That is key to watercooling, planning, planning and more planning. Otherwise you'll be wasting time and money and still won't have a working computer. Part 3 will then show more removals of tubing and the critical removal of a CPU waterblock, or any air cooler for that matter. Enjoy!

What you see here is an amazing build. The components used are top of the line and a lot of testing went into the decision on components. We originally tried the MSI Big Bang motherboard with the Lucid Hydra chip, but it ended up not working so we went with the tried and true ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z Z68 Motherboard. The just released Koolance ERM-3K3UCU is taking care of the cooling duties. Enjoy, Trubyd44

It is pretty cool to just sit around and play with it. I have included MSI Afterburner screens to show HD5970s clocks and temperatures. I have also included a screen for the power usage during the benchmark. I've noticed that it's power use fluctuates a lot during the benchmark...more so then other benches. Enjoy!

Ok guys, it has been weeks since I did the overview of the workstation build for my client in Texas. And yes, as you can tell, I haven't completed the build. It turns out that the RevoDrive X2 is really bleeding edge technology that obviously has some flaws. I cannot recommend it to anyone unless they are an enthusiast that enjoys messing with the problems that come with that type of 'new' tech. I was able to get the RevoDrive X2 to be the boot drive with the EVGA SR-2 motherboard with a lot of work, and just when I thought that I had beaten it, it through me a loop and now I have to RMA the device. Please watch the video and let me know what you think. Also, I have the video completed that goes over the build which is really good. That video will be posted soon. Enjoy!

Ok guys, I am quickly getting close to my computer showcase, but first I wanted to communicate problems that anyone with a desire to build a similar computer will also have. There are certain programs that won't run with more than 16 cores such as FRAPS and the power usage for my setup is more than a standard household circuit can provide. I knew the build was going to have issues, mine always do...but I was unaware of these issues that surfaced. Incidentially I didn't mention one other issue. I originally bought W7 Home Premium when W7 was released, well Home Premium doesn't support two physical processors! WHAT!?!?!? I had to get my hands on W7 Professional which supports dual processors. Sheesh! What next! Enjoy!
