so here we are with our new host , A2 Hosting. still in middle of set up but I’m getting things straighten out so far.
also with this blog I have created a small shop. my plans is to be able to sell some of my stuff that I don’t need anymore. I have graphic cards, comics, n-scale trains and a bunch of other stuff. my shop is located at http://theshop.sirryche.com. as of right now it is under construction and I am testing it now. what my plans are that ill post something that I’m selling and then you be able to buy it.
well its been awhile and I got the itch to build a new pc. wanted to get into the new ddr4 and higher gaming speeds. since the case I used before was so sweet, the Corsair 760T Black ATX Full Tower Case I decided to use the same case but I bought the white case to keep it in my color scheme. I decided to run this case as air cool to start off with. I liked the looks a of the GPU which Ill be using the new Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti GV-N98TG1 Gaming-6GD 6GB card which comes with a nifty lighting setup which if I went all out water-cooling I would lose that effect. if I decide to water cool ill just water-cool the CPU and not GPU but if I want to water-cool the GPU I think for the best bang for the buck I would get the new Asus Presidion hybrid card GeForce ti980 cards and not mess with the matching of blocks to a card BS. so here is the list of what ill be using in this set up. I finally bought the Wampa and Luke Skywalker to finish my build and added the pics of them enjoy

hey ya, will be posting updates on my little conversion project that i have started. i always wanted a robotic rover and was looking for years on what to get when i came across a frame that i liked and then after reading many articles i found out that i could take my old T-Maxx and convert it from nitro to Electric instead of getting a pre made ok unit. so first thing i did was get a bracket for an electric motor that fits my frame from How2RC.com. they have articles on how to convert your nitro T-MAX to electric.
Here is my first liquid build. I call it Blue Ice. It has an I5-4690k Devil CPU on an ASRock Extreme 4 motherboard. I went all out and also paired it up with 2 Asus Poseidon GTX Video Cards and 16GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum Memory with Blue LED mod Added to them. I am running 2 separate liquid cooling systems. First loop runs thru a XSPC pump and 2 Bay Reservoir combo which is pared to a XSPC EX240 Radiator and running thru a Raystorm CPU cooler and back to the reservoir. The second loop runs through an XSPC Photon 170 Tube Glass Cylinder Reservoir / Pump Combo (D5 Vario) to a XSPC EX360 Radiator then trough both the Asus Poseidon’s and back to the Photon 170. All of this is put into a Corsair 760T Case. All tubing is PETG with PrimoChill 1/2″ OD Rigid Ghost Compression fittings. Here is a list of parts that I have used and pics of the build. Only two things that I ran into ii had to do a little mod to is I mounted the Photon 1700 to the back of the motherboard tray. There were two holes that fit just right but I had to use spacers for one of the mounting holes was in the way of the SSD HD Drive holder. I also had to trim one SSD HD Drive holder to pass by the bolt that held the reservoir. I Also had to bend the second row bay supports down out of the way that held the 5 ¼ drives in the second bay because the 2 bay reservoir would not fit. To make it easier to fill the 2 bay reservoir I had to trim the front cover so that I could pull the from cover off and not disturb anything else to fill the 2 bay reservoir when needed.

well i just received my braded cables the last piece of my project
here is the old painted cables yuck and my new cables
so here is pics of my finished project BLUE-ICE taaadaaa. enjoy.
been awhile since I been updated. so here I am again. been going through all my pic’s and editing, deleting and juts organizing my pic’s that I have taken over the years. I juts recently finished my Colorado pic’s and my some of my Main pic’s. here a couple below. I have been pushing the new/updated pic’s out to my website
http://rasphotostudios.com (site is down right now) and also to my flicker account http://flicker.com/sirryche. came across another site called 500px. seem pretty cool if you want to pay for it. the free version would be a waste if you already have flicker. just my two cents. anyway here’s a couple of pic’s.
hey this just came up and I just spent some to creating this instructions on how to get a domain name. you can go to many different domain providers and the basic domain name registrations is just that a name registration. so a $9.00 domain name from godaddy.com to a $150.00 domain name from so over expensive provider is no difference. just the price. some might combine a hosting site or other special bullshit but never over pay for a basic domain name registration. as for now I made a quick and easy instruction using godaddy.com. me personally I use bluehost.com domain. the steps are the same it’s just I had to do this one for somebody thru godaddy.com. her we go.
Go to a domain provider and enter domain name that you are looking for. For work we use godaddy.com and for my personal I use bluehost.com. Registering a domain is about the same from any domain provider and only the prices will vary. So if we use godaddy.com you then will do as follows.
· Go to godaddy.com
· For single domain just type it in the box provided but for multiple domains click the link under the search box labeled ‘Bulk Search’
· Using bulk search type a domain name one per line in the box provided and then hit go
· It will tell you the available names and you can check which ones you want to buy and register
· Click proceed to check out when ready
· Next page just hit continue or if interested check mark the items of interest and it will be added to checkout.
· Review and check out. Next page is where you (new customer) sign up now and follow instructions. Create account and finish. Crating an account will let you control and manage all your purchases thru godaddy.com and allows you to get free webhosting thru them.
so that’s the basics. hhmmm my arrows didn’t transfer right … oh well you get the idea..
well I have finished painting and installed my desk. but ran out of money to add the bookshelf’s. I want to make the one wall a built in bookshelf and have all my books and magazines that I have in them. I also have to install the floor. as for now I think I will paint the concrete a different color then when I have money and time I will put some plank flooring down. hmmm I just might put carpet if I can get it for the right price. here are some pics of the project ahhh dang my pics are on another pc. ill dig them up and add them later..OK here I am with some pics the first is when I had the whole basement open and had my pool table. since I have not played pool in many years I sold it and decided to make my office instead. this pic is also after I just installed my new drop ceiling and was showing off it off. the next pic is from about the same position but with the new walls and new hidden door installed. I have added my desks and finished painting the walls but I ran dry on cash and have to wait to get my floor done. I also added some pics of my desk and work bench and of the painted walls. I used counter tops and bought the legs from ikea. I have used counter tops for other desk in my house, they work great.
well hello. it’s been awhile since I last blogged something. so as the title of this session states is that since I sold my pool table I have decided to divide my basement into more rooms. the first is that I put up a wall between my media/TV room and then created another office/library room. since I have used my old computer room as my train room I decided that I needed another room to do most of my pc repairs and also thought that in this room I can make most of the walls with built in bookcases. hence the reason I was naming it more of a library then an pc room. here are some pics of the room in the first couple of modifications. since I already had my drop down ceiling installed I really did not want to tear it down and redo the while ceiling so I had 3 main beams extend thru the ceiling and mount to the main rafters but all the rest of the 2×4 would attached to a top board screwed between the main supports. only thing I would need to do is to place a crown molding at top of the wall to hide the end of drywall that stops at the ceiling. this will make it have a nice looking line.
so far I have finished with the framing and also finished with the drywall. I have a couple of patches to finish and sand then the drywall will be finished. while I am waiting on a couple of spots to dry I started to trim the walls with primer. while I wait for that to dry I’ll have to finished the worst part.. cleaning up my mess. cleaning is one of the worst things I hate to do when I start my projects. but after I get it all cleaned up and I feel more satisfaction of completing my project. next thing I will be doing is building my desk. I plan on using counter tops for my desks. this is a cheap and very affordable way to have big hardy desks. the fist desk will be on the back wall and I have some cabinets that would be the base of the desk. this desk would be 36” high and I will have some shelving between the cabinets under the desk. I also plan on building book shelves about the desk also. this desk will be around 10’ long. plenty of room to have as a work station to do all my pc repairs that I do for friends. from there there would be another 6’ table that stretches to the right of the 13’ . this desktop will be 30’” high and at the end have another 90* right angle 6’desk that will come out 6’ from the wall and be my main desk. the rest of the room will be bookshelves to hold my books and magazines. I will post more pics as I finish the room.
Well here I am sitting in the parking lot of IKEA waiting for the store to open. I thought I jot something down since its been awhile since my last post. I am in the middle of building a room in the basement and I just recently remembered to take some picture between the steps of building the room. I tend to get into the zone and build then forget to take pictures t
o explain what is am doing. So ill be posting a piece on that room or what I like it to be is a library here soon. Also ill be posting some reviews and some pics of my new Barbie doll that I just received. I have a lot of ideas to write about but I tend to get in the lazy side and then never do it. Whew stores open time to go.
