Probably not, it only expedites shipping time, not processing time. I had the same issue with an order I placed last week.

Got my new CPU Cooler in today. I gave my Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro to a buddy of mine for his new build, so I ordered the Artic Cooling Freezer Xtreme, it is beastly.

Jawesome!


I'm still rockin' the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme I bought like six years ago (at least). Thing has been with me through the socket 775 era and into the socket 1155 age. I'll probably use it whenever I upgrade to socket 1150 since the mounting is the same.

Probably paying a little more than I should for this guy, but they're getting harder to find:

More LED strips, this time two 5 meter spools of 'Dream Color' (6803 addressable) LED strips. Don't know what I'll do with them yet, but I'm an LED junkie and my Youtube viewers have been begging me to review them:

Just went over to Monoprice.com and grabbed some USB and coaxial cables to replace old/broken ones I'm currently using, as well as a new set of headphones.

Totally worth it as well. This bundle is priced at $330, which is only $30 over the standard Deluxe set. You get MK8, Mario themed Wii Mote and Mario Themed Wii Mote Wheel thingy. Plus they have a digital promotion going on with MK8 that you get a choice of 1 of 4 games to get for free as long as you register mario kart to your club nintendo account before I think the end of July. Those four games to choose from: Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii Party U & Zelda Windwaker HD (the one I obviously chose).

I've been bumping up against the hardware limitations of my cell phone (Samsung Galaxy S 4G) for the past few months now, so I finally decided to upgrade.

Hello Samsung Galaxy S5! Woo!

I'd wait; I've heard it's not a big enough gap between the S4 and S5 to warrant the jump.

But S1 to S5 totally is. Giggity.

Steam's doing their QuakeCon sale, so I grabbed Doom 3 and the DLC for $3.25.

I'd already beaten D3 back when it was new, but I'd never played Resurrection of Evil. I figure grabbing both for cheap (especially with the mod potential and a good computer) was worth it.

I'm putting a moratorium on buying things. At least, on noon essential things. Want to give Mario a bomb-ass birthday party at the end of the month. Perhaps I'll post what I've bought through work, though...

6x i7-4930k
6x Arctic Cooling Freezer i30
6x GA-X79-UP4
48x 8GB DDR3 modules
4x Samsung 840 Pro (256GB)
4x Samsung 840 Evo (512GB)
2x WD Black 4TB
4x WD Black 2TB
2x GeForce 770 OC
8x GeForce 730 OC
6x Corsair 200R
6x blue LED 120mm fans
6x SeaSonic 750W modular power supply

... I think that about covers it. Soon, I'll be moving two Dell PowerEdge R710 servers, one PowerVault MD1000, and two PowerVault MD1220s to a different location. Don't have to purchase those since we already own them, but there will be some additional purchasing (upwards of 200 grand in networking equipment alone) required to get that stuff working properly.

I bought two white label 2TB HDDs. Sadly, one is bad so I have to get it replaced. Still trying to sell my mountain bike so I can buy a new one, not going so well Sad

Bought two of these... one to power the pair of TIC GS3 buried speakers in the back yard by the pool, and another to go out to my uncle's ranch house in the shop next to the wood burning stove so we can chill out in the winter. I've got a pair of spare Sony SS-B1000 bookshelf speakers and a cheap-o Energy 10" subwoofer that will go to the ranch too.

I know the Lepai T-Amps are popular, hell if it's half as good as the Dayton DTA-1 I'll be happy.

I also snagged 100 feet of low voltage direct burial cable to be used as speaker wire when I bury the TIC speakers in the back yard. I'm trying to figure out where I want to put the amp. I'm thinking either in a weatherproof enclosure of some kind hidden in the bushes or something, or just run the wires into the house somewhere and setup the T-Amp inside. I'm leaning towards the weatherproof enclosure just because I hate putting holes in the walls to fish cable through.

I bought a couple of 20x25x4 air filters from airfilterbuy.com ($18.99 each and free shipping, hell yeah), and we ordered wall-to-wall carpet for Mia's room. No matter what we do, that room's temperatures fluctuate more than other rooms in the house, so we might as well throw some carpet down and make the floor tolerable.

Lately, a Shimano Deore HB-M252 32 Hole Front Disc Hub for my mountain bike and an Avid BB7 front disc/rotor kit for the same bike. Soon I'll need a 26" 32H rim, some spokes & nipples to build the wheel.

I really want to save up for a good (but inexpensive) hybrid bike... but it has to be something that can hold my fat ass reliably. I've been told to look at the Trek and Giant brand bikes by quite a few people who are 'fluffy' like me.

I can't afford $2,000+ for a bike.... for me it's gonna be $500 or less, and I'm told that there are several models from the above brands that I can find in that price range.

You could also check http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/hybrid_bikes.htm for some, although you'd have to do final assembly yourself or have your LBS do it for a small(ish) fee. I'm looking at http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/grav...275-g1.htm & http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/moto...tbikes.htm
Second one for winter commuting and the first one for my normal commute, and retiring my Gary Fisher from every day riding.

Is it fanless? Or did they finally figure out what the other manufacturers couldn't figure out after years of research? lol

Definitely has fans... the 0db operation refers to the fact that the fans do not spin at all during situations that don't stress the GPU like desktop and even some low end games.

Even when it's working hardcore it's pretty damn silent though...

Got the Vizio D650i-B2 during the Walmart Thanksgiving deal... so far it seems like a great set for the normal price of $900, and an absolute steal at $649. Still tweaking and dialing things in though...

Formula/bottles will dominate your next 1 year, and diapers will take up at least 22 months (that is, assuming you start potty training at 22 months). Whee Big Grin

As for me, I bought a 33-pound sack of dog food. That ought to last Daisy for 2.5-3 months.

A brand new Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse still in the box, with my ~7 year old Logitech G5 sitting next to it. Bought it about a week and a half ago during a Best Buy sale, still haven't gotten around to opening it. Prolly do a Youtube video on it....

The old G5 still kicks ass, but the cord is getting stiff on it and I'm ready to try wireless again. Once, a long long time ago, I had a wireless Logitech (MX100 I think???) and it was awesome, but there was some FPS lag.
