    Welcome to uni, where your favorite articles of clothing (and footwear) mean nothing after you or a bunch of friends have been getting hammered.

    I was really drunk a couple of weeks ago, got home, draped my leather jacket over the heater and passed out. I woke up in a smoky, smelly room to the sound of my mother yelling at me. My jacket was a scrunched up little ball of burnt hide. :(

    A Prolimatech Megahalems! Wonderful cooler. And works quite well. Currently keeping my Q6600 at 52°C after 25 minutes of prime95

    And it looks sexy :D

    Are you running it passively? I did for a while just to see how it did and while I got amazing results, just adding a single super slow fan yields some serious gains with no extra noise. I also used to akasa vipers on full speed just to test, that was quite loud haha.

    No, I posted this picture because I love the look of it :D
    Running it with a Scythe Kama Flow 900RPM fan. Very quiet, I'd say.
    Temperature-wise, I'm seeing 55°C after 45 minutes of prime95 :)

    Some switches for a 5.25", very easy cutting and looks alright for now I think.

    Bunch of micro controllers in various sizes (manly for output pin count rather than resource count)
    A bunch of prototyping boards.
    Various capacitors and over 2000 resistors.
    8 2600mAh AA batteries.
    25 555 timers.

    Next up is something to store them in. I might end up building some drawers as the commercial storage options are so overpriced.

    Hmm maybe I should stop spending my entire pay on electronics.

    200 by 250 cm projector screen material for my room. A regular, finished screen of that size costs close to 2000 DKK, I got the material for 450 DKK, and then I just have to make my own frame.
    I'm thinking about buying 500 LED's and incorporating them in the sides of the screen. Would create and awesome experience when watching movies.
