Work In Progress, Part II

On a more positive note, I sent in an application for Harvard two days ago (just a few hours before the deadline). Unfortunately, by the time I submit the application, I didn’t come to the realization that I needed several other documents from my school sent to the college. Damn. Harvard’s a no-go for me. But there’s always still Stanford, and I’m pretty dedicated to getting into that, despite the fact that it will probably murder my bank account in cold blood.

Anyway, aside from all this nonsense, my computer is finally complete. I built it yesterday.

My computer, complete with USB Penguin RGB light because I live on the dark side where RGB lights inside my computer don’t exist.

This baby’s running a 3770k i7, and I clocked it up to 4.4 GHz. My graphics card came in, it’s a Sapphire RX 580 with 8GB of VRAM. I can finally play video games from a decade ago at pretty much maximum speed…

I had a bunch of issues getting the computer to work initially, and I think I enabled some bad setting in the BIOS so for a while my computer was refusing to POST and I had no idea why. Still a little bit skeptical of my computer being 100% fully functional, but we’ll see. I get pretty damn good temperatures. Idling with a Chrome window open and a Discord window, maybe Spotify runs between 30C and 40C. When running Prime95, the max temperature I saw it go up to was 90C, which is risky but that’s Prime95 being a big meanie. Realistically, I never see it go much past 75C-80C when doing hefty things. And I never stress out my computer, so I think my current overclock is working great.

In other news, we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow. 3-6 inches. I’m calling out of work because I’m pissed off at what happened today, and I’m totally using the snow as an excuse.

    I have learned some new things by your blog. One other thing I would really like to say is that newer pc os’s often allow extra memory to be played with, but they additionally demand more ram simply to work. If one’s computer can not handle more memory as well as the newest program requires that storage increase, it could be the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks

    Interesting article. It is very unfortunate that over the last 10 years, the travel industry has already been able to to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever entire global downturn. Through it the industry has really proven to be strong, resilient as well as dynamic, getting new approaches to deal with difficulty. There are generally fresh difficulties and opportunities to which the market must once again adapt and respond.
