PS3 ICO and Shadow of the Colossus

I spent many many hours playing them on the PS2, these 2 games are beautiful and magnificent. Their soundtracks are awesome, I still listen to them every now and then.

And only a little more than a month to go, I will be able to get my hands on the Japanese limited box.

PC upgraded, finally

Core 2 Quad Q6600 -> Core i5 2500, 4G DDR -> 8G DDR3, WD RAID edition HDD -> Intel Series 510 SSD, Lian Li 8 years old chassis -> Cooler Master Silencio 550 chassis.

Cost quite a bit, but the boot time is simply excellent.


Added 2 Zalman ZM-SF3 120mm fans to the chassis to increase ventilation.

The CPU cooler hasn’t been upgraded yet, but the noise level is well below the ambient noise (from the surroundings).

Still researching on quiet and relatively small coolers, targets include Notua NH-C12P SE14 and Coolermaster GeminII S524 (much cheaper).
