Looking back over my last post here on the site, I see I was talking about love, and how love beats hate, I still believe it, and always will. Awake since 3:00 AM this morning, now it is almost 6:00 AM, and I accomplished nothing at all, hardly, and that’s OK. Maybe the majority of people only post positive good things online, attempting to project a perfect life, or something more happy and contented than they truly are, and that’s alright also, but I enjoy sprinkling my websites, posts, writings, articles, videos, comments, and everything with small doses of the bad times, or less positive times, in hopes that these will be an inspiration for others to overcome their own hurdles, adversities, disabilities, and “hard times”. Jesus Christ is Lord, He loves you and I, so lean on Him!
I’ve been working on building a new computer system, haven’t built one since 2006 or something like that, when the CPU died or perhaps the mother board, I went to laptops full time. Hobbies are extremely important, just like work is, often times when we don’t “feel like” doing them, this is when we should the most, for many times feelings lead us in the wrong direction if we aren’t careful. I haven’t been blogging lately, but rather vlogging, over on our YouTube channel, and this morning when I woke up, I thought to myself, “I want someone to keep our Google Cloud Platform Virtual Machine Instance Server, our domains, all of our websites, and my / our social media accounts going in the event of my own passing or death. I hope anyone reading this finds it helpful! 🙂
Hobbies help us, in so many ways, and just like work, they offer an outlet of distraction from our perceived troubles in life, most of which we seem to create ourselves, and probably do. Stephen Covey covers this in one of my favorite books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, he tells us to take responsibility, that we are able to choose our responses. Unlike work, a hobby is something we can take a break from sometimes, work, on the other hand, shouldn’t be ignored or abandoned as much, when adults stop working for money many really strange weird things can take place, some of which are extremely unhealthy. If you are as fortunate as I am, perhaps one of your hobbies, will eventually become your work and or career, maybe you can even start a business in it!
So, here are the specifications on the new machine I am building, I plan to use it for business purposes, maybe I can deduct it from my taxes I am not sure but will look into it. I have been working on it for the past two months, buying parts, we don’t have a computer store around here anymore like Comp USA, where they sold all the parts you might need for a build, so now we order them through the mail and they are delivered or we pick them up at Best Buy or another local store. R.E. White Consulting has finally evolved into a very successful business, we charge between $80.00 to $160.00 an hour, our notable clients list is growing exceptionally well, and Jesus Christ IS our “business model”. I am extremely grateful for everyone who has helped out and continues to do so.
I will break the specs down into a couple or few paragraphs, so here we go. PC / Workstation Computer / HEDT: Project Start Date 05-01-22 – R.E. White Consulting LLC / Marc -White Build ~ Mechanizer 2 (updated 08-08-2022): AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16 Cores / 32 Threads CPU (Central Processing Unit) @ 3.4GHz – 4.9GHz 64MB L3 Cache 105W Unlocked Best Buy MB TN $602.53 (MSRP $799.99) 05-12-22, ASUS – NVIDIA ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 24GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 GPU – Black (Graphics Processing Unit) Best Buy BW TN $1426.74 (MSRP $1,999.99) 0-08-22. Those 16 cores will give us plenty of power to work with multiple programs simultaneously, we had the GeForce 3080 12G OC GPU, but for another $450.00, or so, we upgraded to the 3090 24G OC.
ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero AMD AM4 X570s MB (Main Board) & Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 128GB (4x32GB) DDR4 3600MHz CAS Latency 18 RAM (Random Access Memory) Amazon & New Egg Direct $1,162.10 (MSRP $499.99 & $699.99) 08-03-22, Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVME M.2 2T SSD (Solid State Drive) @ 7000 MBs Best Buy $296.31 (MSRP $379.99) 06-08-22. Best Buy didn’t offer the Dark Hero motherboard, which has the passive heat sink on the chipset, so we got one from Amazon. I am extremely excited and happy about the 128 Gigs of RAM, currently the laptop chomps through almost 8 Gigs with only Windows 11 and Google Chrome browser open. Samsung is a trusted name, so that 980 Pro 2T M.2 SSD should give years of good service, and it’s BIG!
Corsair AX1600i Digital ATX PSU (Power Supply Unit) 1600 Watt Fully-Modular 80 PLUS Titanium Gallium Nitride Transistors Corsair Direct $669.46 (MSRP 609.99) 08-06-22, ASUS ROG Herculx Graphics Card Anti-Sag Holder Bracket (Solid Zinc Alloy Construction) Amazon $50.47 (MSRP $45.99) 08-06-22. A lot of thought went in to the PSU, Power Supply Unit, and multiple PSU calculators online were utilized, the trick is to only have it operating at 50% to 60% loads, so, with as hefty as this build is, 850W would not cut it. If you are going to build a premium machine with top shelf parts, DO NOT underpower it with a cheap inexpensive PSU! Our video card, GPU, will be so large and heavy it will need something to support it in the case, the Herculux will do nicely, and it lights up.
Corsair Airflow 7000D ATX/Mini ITX/Micro ATX/EATX Full-tower Case Black BW TN Best Buy $257.90 (MSRP $259.99) 08-08-22, Corsair iCUE H170i ELITE LCD Display Liquid CPU Cooler-Custom IPS LCD Screen-48 Dynamic RGB LEDs-140mm Fans -420mm Radiator-Commander Core Smart Lighting Controller & Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Extreme High Performance Thermal Paste Amazon $362.15 (MSRP 309.99 & $19.99) 08-08-22. Both of those components are HEAVY, in fact the entire machine will be very heavy, and I don’t think I ever want to transport it without removing at least the GPU and radiator, to prevent breakage and leaks. Eventually I want to put a custom closed loop in the case, to cool the GPU and CPU, but it won’t be easy or cheap. I picked up some great thermal paste also.
Total cost to date = $4,827.66 total delivered (includes: tax 9.75% Williamson County TN, shipping, price matches, price drops, discounts, military discounts, 2 year replacement warranty on some parts, all manufactures warranties). MSRP = $5,625.90 + $548.25 Tax @ 9.75% = $6,174.15 total. I will need to double check all of the prices one last time, but $4,827.66 should be extremely close at this point in time. We beat the MSRP really well, and I read online that some guys actually paid as much as $3,300.00 just for their ASUS ROG Strix GeForce 3090 24G GPU, and that may not even include tax, I don’t know, these were sky high prices during the COVID 19 worldwide pandemic that started up in the spring of 2020. Everyone was at home, and crypto miners went nuts with the GPUs.
I want you men out there, specifically, to know you are NOT alone, especially all of you white Caucasian men, because 7 out of 10 suicides in America are white Caucasian men, this means about 36,000 kill themselves every 12 months, but we never hear about this in the media, other things like the country of Ukraine (and another useless video or news report of someone in a ghetto somewhere getting into a fist fight or attacking someone) are more important, I feel this is done deliberately, that white men are being targeted by other white men who are billionaires. We are seeing a constant slow breakdown of white Caucasian families across the USA, mostly because they have moved off the small family farms, they spend too much time at college, and they have stopped having enough children.
If you are a white Caucasian man in America, especially between the ages of 24 and 54, YOU are very much needed here, we need you so much, please don’t take your own life, get help, ask for help, always keep asking for help, and learn to set good boundaries with those around you, build up a team of loyal people in your personal and business life, and pay them well with compliments, happiness, smiles, attention, time, and money. I understand, that marriage can be and often is stressful, and divorce can seem like the end of the world, especially after you put your heart and soul into it, you are trying to build something up perhaps, and to see it torn down and destroyed by a wife, a processor, lawyers, possibly cops, and a judge can be devastating, but it doesn’t have to be, and you should not let it be that way.
Statistics clearly show, across the world, that men “love deeper” than women, it is the way God made things, I mean, 70% of all divorces are initiated by women, and 90% of those went to college and got a degree. America is changing in seriously dramatic ways, especially for white Caucasian men, and also women, we are being attacked and assaulted on almost every front, mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually…it is your duty, if you are a real true Christian, to reach out to these men and families and women. White men are very much needed to help build and maintain our entire infrastructure, without them, you will be missing some key workers and leaders. Having fun is great sometimes, but eventually the party ends, and you need to go back to work.
In closing, I will say, be sure to KEEP your hobbies, if you don’t have any you truly love and enjoy, then start some, it’s extremely serious that you do. It can be as simple as taking photos of sunsets with your phone / cell, tracking your time and distance as you walk, collecting coins or unique stamps, growing flowers, logging where you hike, visiting parks, audio / video, computers and networks, websites and layout, graphic art or blogging, cooking or cleaning, remote control cars and trucks, old family photos, really almost anything. If some of your old hobbies have gone dormant, but you can recall hoe much you enjoyed them, then start them up again or get out the old stuff, it will be fun and worthwhile I promise. You need to distract your mind sometimes, giving ourselves a break. It truly works!
Keep your chin up, smile at people at the grocery stores, whistle and walk easy, drive by the rules of the road, stop at stop signs, give your signal, don’t speed above the limit, don’t break the rules, pay your bills on time, get out of debt and stay out of debt, don’t take out a business loan but rather save up the cash or find another way, live way below your means, walk and run and exercise, be strong and tender and merciful, forgive everyone every morning and every night otherwise it will eat you up like a cancer, tithe 10% of every dollar you make, when someone asks for something give them double, pray on your knees every morning and night, observe Sabbath on Saturday, ask yourself what would Jesus do, love God with all your heart, remember the Holy Spirit, and love everyone!
Have a great day, God bless you, thank you for stopping by!
