Brands Variety

My PC is DIY (do-it-yourself) assembled type. So, the components inside are made of different manufacturers. A DIY PC is more stasfying compared to preassembled PCs as you have the freedom to choose the best components that you like. These are the brands that made up my PC:

Prime: That's a lot of brands!

The Early Days

Some of you may already know that I've upgraded my PC to a more powerful about last two months. However, I didn't post anything about that major upgrades that I've made as I don't have the time to do so and I got another upgrade to be done. Still, I'll post about it in the near future as soon as the upgrade finished.

I constantly upgrading  my PC from time to time. You might want to know the initial specifications of my PC during its early days. The PC is bought in early 2006 (4 years ago). The specifications can be considered so lame compared to today's standards. So, here it is:

~ Intel Pentium 4 511 Processor
(2.80GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 533MHz FSB, LGA 775, EM64T, single-core Prescott)
~ Asrock 775VM800 Motherboard
(2xDDR DIMMs, 1xAGP, 2xPCI, 6xUSB2.0, IDE, SATA, microATX)
~ Kingston Value RAM 256MB DDR400
~ NVIDIA GeForce MX440 64MB AGP Graphics Card
~ Samsung 40GB IDE Hard Drive
~ Sony CRX3200EE DVD-ROM/CD-RW IDE Combo Optical Drive
~ PCI TV Tuner Card
~ 1.44" Floppy Drive
~ PCI 56k Modem
~ My10's 14" CRT Monitor
~ e-Mag Mid-Tower ATX Chassis (with 400Watts Power Supply Unit)

Surprisingly, all of the components except the MX440 (sold) and power supply unit (burnt) still survives till today.

Prime: How nostalgic...

New Crysis 2 Trailer

A new trailer of the most anticipated first-person shooter this year, CRYSIS 2 has been released few days ago. Entitled "The Wall Trailer", it reveals the alien new bipedal design which is potrayed quite aggressive. It shows the beauty of devastated urban jungle, New York nicely rendered using the brand new Crytek's CryEngine 3. More importantly, a soldier wearing Nanosuit 2 (which I assume that he is Nomad from the first game) is shown throughout the trailer. The new nanosuit looks impressive in this trailer. It is also revealed that the game will be released during holiday 2010 (near the end of year). Below is the trailer:

The "Hot" Apple iPad!

Yes, Apple's brand new iPad is hot. It's really hot! Seriously, I mean it! The hot-selling iPad appears to experience some overheating issue, as reported by DailyTech.

The anticipated Apple iPad was overheating when exposed to spring sunlight. PC Magazine editor, Zach Honig Twittered that he had received an error message "iPad needs to cool down before you can use it", while playing with the device in New York City.  He had to put the insubordinate unit in the fridge to cool it back down enough to resume operation (Are you serious?). Other publications, such as The Atlantic, cite numerous customers complaining of similar issues.

The iPad reportedly has an operating temperature of 32 degrees to 95 degrees F (0 to 35 degrees Celsius).  When the device heats up to over 113 degrees F it reportedly shuts off to protect itself.  Unfortunately, the tightly packaged electronics can't dissipate heat that well and the sun is enough to tip the scales and trigger a temporary iPad death. As for now, Apple has not yet responded on the issue of overheating.

Prime: Now that's what we call hot!!!

New TF3 Decepticon Car Spotted?

Last week, we got an update from Michael Bay that one of the new Autobots will take its alternate mode as Ferrari 458 Italia in Transformers 3. This time, as reported by Realm Cast, a Dodge Charger is suspected to be a new Decepticon's alternate mode as the car has a Decpeticon logo on its hood.

I was doing my normal rounds on the lot and came across the Transformers 3 work. All the stuff that you guys had reported SuperHeroHype had was there and more! The main Transformers cars are all there including 2 that I didn’t see in the previous movies. One is a autobot that I couldn’t get close enough to take a picture of because it was being guarded so that it would not be scratched/ damaged. It was a red Ferrari. The other (which wasn’t being guarded as heavily) is a decepticon. It was a dark navy Dodge Charger. I managed to snap a couple of pics with my cell. Sorry for the poor quality.

Prime: A new Decepticon? I'm gonna kick your a$$!
