I was building a comp to test out what a budget machine on the AMD brisbane core could do, and decided I was going to video tape the build process and fast forward it into a 2min time lapsed video. Turned out kinda neat:

http://www.ubrgk.com/ubrgk00001.php - First video on that page. (at the bottom are videos of it playing games)

And before anyone says: I wasn't wearing a static band (haha), but my leg was grounded the whole time :whistling:

Agreed it does look good, I have one suggestion though for your site. I highly recommend that you post the settings at which you achieved those scores(FPS for the games), because they can be misleading if someone thought they'd get those scores with ultra settings, build then get less then half of that.

That is some sound advice. I'll have to work that in tomorrow morning (planning on doing some interface updates to it anyway).

If you do another one in the future take everything out the packaging first and slow up when you show the parts for the first time it will look better and make for a quicker build i usually have everything laid out to hand before a build(im a fast builder). Dont get why you removed the thermal paste that comes with the CPU its as good as anything you can buy better because of how they apply it not much point using the stock HSF then using after market conductor.

Actually, that film of paste they applied to the stock heat sink was poorly done. I can see it working well otherwise, but there was a long "scratch" strait down the middle (middle on that chip being the most important obviously, and I wasn't me when pulling it out). Scratch or no scratch, I always clean the heat sink and surface of the processor before installing, (OCD? maybe..) Knowing that I applied some arctic silver, correctly on some clean surfaces, just makes me feel better :whistling:.

I like the idea of having everything out on the table to start with, all the color and lines would look really good :blink: Then you could watch as they all disappear, lol.
