A New Computer…

On 180210 at approximately 1230h, Heavy Cruiser Myoko’s Graphics Card had a malfunction and the ship was forced to anchor at port. Testing done on Myoko showed that the same problem, which has surfaced 2months ago had recurred. Thus being diagnosed, the IJN decided that Myoko can no longer be maintained and began looking for funds to secure a new ship.

Since Myoko’s purchase 4 years ago, improvements in ship building has lead to Myoko being obsolete after 2 years. Even after mid service upgrades by swapping out its 512mb ram for 2gb ram, Myoko was still somewhat underpowered compared to the newer Cruisers.

Thus when the IJN published its Annual White Paper, it issued specifications for a Battleship instead of Cruisers.

Being in the midst of the Great Recession though, meant that the IJN was unable to allocate too much funds and thus decided to make the most of the money available and build a ship that maximises Cost, Performance and Power Efficiency. After spending 2 hours on component decision, the specifications for Battlecruiser Kirishima was born…

Monitor: Phillips Brilliance 220CW
CPU: Intel i3-540 3.07Ghz
Mobo: ECS P55H-CM
RAM: 2x2GB Kingston DDR3-1066
GPU: ASUS ATi Radeon EAH5670
HDD: 500GB
PSU: Andyson 480W
DVD: Samsung DVD-RAM Drive
Casing: Coolermaster Casing
KB+MOUSE: Logitech Budget Wireless Set MK250

After Kirishima was complete, Myoko was decommisioned hastily and sent to her current grave after salvaging usable parts from her. She remains in her bag till this day, awaiting further possible salvages and her final scuttling.
