Extreme Team Folding Goes Live on August 1st (Formerly The Team Competition)

Yeap it's an every month thing. We're still folding for our teams and such, it will be ongoing. The huge prize package was for the first month, for those that participated that month but we'll still be doing the ETF every month. Is that what you were asking?

That's what I thought, thank you! 🙂  Yup, still got mine going, was just making sure I wasn't wasting the power for the team if we weren't going still.

And now for the last prize, much to my attempts to top my category with stock clocks and gaming on the card while it was folding, I did not top the AMD category.

 

So the Spotswood ATX Open-frame Tech Tray or EATX Open-frame Tray comes down to a draw between @damric, @Avacado and @BWG.

 

 


And with absolutely no endorsement from Canada, it seems @BWG has won the bench somehow...  I should check my computer for viruses to see if he tampered with it somehow...

Nothing like having the most points and being on the winning team and getting nothing that makes a man feel fantastic! LOL It's all gud, I felt it coming. Stoked about this SFF/PSU from the site, I'll count that as my ETF prize!

I am not going to profit off of a forum member like that, you know we all did it for fun. Donate mine to the site. I DO however like taking products from large companies who don't mind donating.

It was in the OP as a prize from me. I hope you kindly accept my gift.

So I've been away most of the time for 3 weeks, which some of you have noticed by the lack of posts and some even messaged me about. I'm glad that project is finished so I've got some time at home again.

My mom messaged me that there was a box waiting at their house for me, and I thought it was backordered watercooling hardware. As a great surprise there was a Silverstone box waiting there for me with the following case inside:

A big thanks to Silverstone for donating this case, EHW for hosting this event and everyone participating! 

I have some plans for this case, and I'll make a 'build log' once I start working on it.

I wonder how that came to be. I certainly look forward to seeing it 🙂

Oh that case is sexy asf.

It certainly is!
I could not resist and gave it a quick teardown. I'm really impressed with how easy it is to work on a small case like this, the options you have and how much space there is for a GPU.

Same, and way sooner than I imagined 😄

...any hint as to what you're going to put in it in terms of specific hardware ? Inquiring minds want to know 🧐

Bastiaans mom: Oh what did I do to have such a wonderful son? First a 3080, now a home to put it in!

 

Ok SERIOUSLY! You have to do this build with your mom.

I would like to go AMD for the CPU (5600G?), with a Silverstone 240 AIO or air if I want keep it cheaper. PSU also Silverstone, I need something a little smaller than my spare 850W to fit (almost, just a little tight for the cables).
GPU is either going to be my 3060 or the M40 (iGPU for display), the M40 would be a good idea because that one doesn't play nice with other drivers/cards in my workstation but the 3060 looks way better in there.
As for the motherboard I'm still not sure, it's easy to make it an expensive build with a high end motherboard which I most likely don't need.

I'm not sure if my hardware would survive if I'd let her build the system.. 😂

Thanks @ENTERPRISE and Corsair for the prize.

Quick mini review.

 

I'm looking for a new set of caps for this, and then it will probably go full time on my KVM.  The function keys and the RGB is in hardware, so I have had no issues testing it plugged in to my KVM and using it with my Linux machines.  There is an open source alternative to Corsair's iCUE software (ckb-next), but it doesn't look like I'll need to run it.  There are a fair number of default RGB profiles, and since RGB will pretty much always be off, the defaults are fine for me.  All of my boards have been browns for a long time, so it is a little weird typing on linear switches.  All in all it is a nice little board and feels solid to type on.

 

Thanks again for the prize  🙂
