Documenting my new PC (re)build... From Q6600 to i7-3770k

    Stupid question, but how would those m Audio AV40's get physically hooked up to the sound card port (3mm plug)? My son has a pair of these in our home studio and I didn't think about using them.

    These are the speakers I had....


    This is what I've been using for 10 years and I love them. Unfortunately, they are dead. Note the volume controls, which I have really become attached to!!

    Your motherboard has a stereo 1/8" output, so you would use this cable to connect to it:

    Amazon.com: Hosa CMP153 Y Cable 1/8 Inch TRS to Dual 1/4 Inch TS Cable - 3 Foot: Musical Instruments

    or you can connect by RCA:

    Hosa Stereo 1/8" TRS to Two RCA Cable at zZounds

    Those are just examples. Make sure you get enough length of course.

The PC is overclocked to 4.5GHz and has been for about a year and it's both fast and stable, which is what I wanted.
    Hmph! My builds should look so great! Beautimous!

    You're very welcome.

    My ferrets are long gone . . . I just didn't think I could survive the loss of another one. The little critters just wrap themselves around one's heart and don't let go. Mine were mostly Charlie(s), Charlene, Caesar, Beethoven and a few others.

    BTW, my alter-ego is StarFerret. She'll appear in an upcoming novel I'm writing, that is, if I ever finish.

    lol anyone that had a ferret named "Beethoven" is ok in my book. Did you know Beethoven used to play the guitar? Specifically, the lyre guitar.

    It was such a big part of him that his tombstone features one. He must have been the world's first Van Halen or Jimi Hendrix or for you Texans, SRV or Eric Johnson:

    My latest changes...


    Switched to an EVGA GTX-770 video card and cleaned things up a bit. Replaced some smaller drives with 2 x 3TB WD Red NAS drives, configured in Windows Storage Spaces, which is very cool!
