My new PSU arrived. Since I was bored anyway, I did some pre-wire management.

Still a little bit of a mess right now. But once the mobo is installed in a  couple of weeks, it should be much cleaner.

Good move having them bundled up like that. I know I've said I know more about running them than I do the tech involved, that doesn't mean I've never looked inside. Mostly machines other people were building or doing repairs on. The wires almost always looked like a jumbled mess.

My RAM arrived! Getting so close, just a couple more weeks, and I'll get the mobo and CPU.

Just ordered the CPU. Intel i5 6600.

Next year I'll upgrade to a i7 6700K.

Just looking at the page for that thing, it looks like you could drop kick this thing across a football field and it would still keep working.

It's got a nice backplate on it as well.

Good to see that there are still people who have a sense for powerful and durable hardware. Just a few days ago I had to explain why I need such a big box under my desk.

I spent weeks researching parts. Hell, I must have spent a better part of a month looking into just the PSU.

I love YouTube comments. I've been trying to explain to some guy why the far-right and the far-left are just as bad. For some reason he's only seeing "Trump is Hitler", and "Clinton is God", despite me not even hinting at that, let alone mentioning either one of them. In fact, I haven't mentioned a political party.

Though I'm sure my comment comparing Anita Sarkeesian to Sarah Palin, and that college isn't a prerequisite to extreme politics, like he assumed, should go over well with the dude.

I will not rest until I receive General Bill O'Reilly's unconditional surrender!

So I spend Monday night with an ex, and now she wants a regular NSA thing. I would say the Universe has decided to give me a break.

I heard them. I ignored them. I ran in head first (hehe). I have zero regrets.
