Iron Maiden

No more electric fan focusing in my CPU. No more wishes that my CPU will run. At higit sa lahat, wala ng freezing windows. hehe Well, after a tedious installation, pero may problema pa… I feel relieved that after 7 long years, I have now a new computer! It doesn’t look Iron pa, pero Maiden naman na sa specs. hehe 

It is built around i5 3330, 4gb of RAM with heat spreader, 500GB black WD HDD, Gigabyte motherboard which is very suprisingly performer ha despite mura. hehe 1GB of video card which makes gaming or watching movies a breeze and addictive. No more floppy drive.. At isang dvd writer from HP which does at least basic task. hehe

A case na medyo maasahan at ang power supply which maasahan pa for now. hahaha In the next months, I’ll buy a more stable power supply. 20 inch LED monitor na ngayon ko narealize pwede na pala, or the max is 21, kasi pag 23 na.. Sayang lang. hehe

I’m very happy with this pero siyempre may letdown, my problem with the HDD, which sana maayos ng aking reliable friends. hehe What I really love in this computer? USB 3.0, na eto ang rason kung bakit natagalan ako magdecide.

Imagine, almost 200 dvd’s of well, movies and stuff transferred to my external 1TB in a matter of 1 week lang. I mean 1 to 2 hours a day of transferring tapos bago mag 1 week, tapos na!!! hahaha 4GB of data transfer is only 5 mins, unlike sa 2.0 na around 20 mins yun. 700MB or 1GB matter only for 1-2 mins.. hehe Grabe, talagang panalo ito. Kahit di 3.0 yun transfer ko, napakabilis, siguro add 1 min from 1-2 mins, ok na.. Next build, lahat ng port 3.0! hehe

As much I want to go for i7, tight budget and yeah kailangan ko na maglipat ng file. hehe But that’s fine, i5 3330 eh sulit, lalo na sa kuryente.. Maganda talaga sa intel kung bibili ka ng mas updated na processor kaysa yun dating i5 na malakas sa kuryente, according sa mga tests ha. I can say, better talaga yun mga bago labas. Parang smartphone lang.

Nakakatawa, pag kuha ko ng computer, sobrang natagalan ako sa pag install kasi iba na pala ang start up ng system ngayon. Install lahat ng drivers muna tapos OS, tapos etong warcraft 3 na sakit sa ulo na sa huli, tapos na! hehe

Ah I want to thank first of all, PCNET Miles, na di lang accommodating, kung di very helpful at marami ako natutunan with such a low price. Value talaga all through out despite no repair. hehe Ok lang, software repair naman kailangan pero quality service and binebenta at maganda free delivery pa! Malapit pa samin. Ayos! hehe Next built and upgrades definitely sa kanila na..

Ah all the websites that involves reviews ng mobo and processors, bit-tech.com and cpuboss.com, ah cnet.com or even simply product websites! As much I want Asus kaso mahal.. Gigabyte way to go, next build kayo ulit! hehe Muntikan na ko mag AMD but due to it’s hungry for power, eh intel talaga. For speed and efficiency, Intel talaga, i5 for sure multitask and sorts.. i7 kung may pera ka for high end computing and stuff, i3 eh budget ka talaga. Sa wakas, feeling ko yun SAP na trial program na mayroon ako dati, mukhang running smooth na dito. hehe At yun migration ko of my blog to a better site is easier and now realizing na kaya na unlike sa dating computer na naghang na pag nacopy paste pa lang. hehe

Pero AMD is for really budget conscious people, kung AMD ako, malamang yun budget ko pang 8 core na nila. hehe Ang tanong lang handa ka na ba sa bill mo sa meralco? hehe At more fans, madaling uminit pero I still refer AMD kung graphics wise lalo na pag walang video card, AMD can fill that gap, in a much cheaper price. Yun nga lang, medyo antay antay na lang sa pagload! hehe Pag may patience, go with AMD.

Saka yeah, next one and a half year or 2 years, another build will come. Maybe I will not call it Iron Maiden, a different one. hehe May gagamit naman nito pag tagal lalo na lumabas na yun haswell processors, drooling with more efficient processors and powerful din!

Can’t wait to build another one..

Well, say goodbye to my punishing fire.. Despite a lot of help na ginawa ng punishing fire, these past days, ayun, pang film viewing na lang. hehe Sad but true.. Time to let go of that one.

In this computer, like a Maiden, once you’re in.. Can’t get out especially with Yui Koike staring at you! =)
