but only the board.... and i need to make it functional again ...
OK, I HATE YOU! :laugh: :toast:

or put it on one single color you like!
Would you believe I snagged another just like that one today?
I did and will show it once it gets here. That one will probrably be setup for subzero, have a few chips I want to run that way and the board should be good for it.

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
I got a Scythe Fuma to replace my old oxidised d15s and also my current low profile id-cooling is-40 planning to move back to bigger cooler again. The low profile cooler is not cutting it. As much as I love small form factor it takes so much effort to tune it. Back to the cooler though I got this cooler at lower price overseas shipping is abit of a pain increasing the price. Getting the cooler I am surprised by how much smaller this cooler is compared to a d15s, its almost like a mini cooler, I don't have a d15 to show you now. Even with single tower that is 160mm cooler this is small vs that. It is fairly compact it fits exactly with my mini itx board. I love the low height of 149mm. Testing the cooler I am shocked by the performance it is better than my d15s while being smaller. I can run prime95 small fft on my Ryzen 1700 at overclock 3.8Ghz to max the heat out it is at 66C, my d15 is already touching 70C. Tested in an open bench ambient is around 28C. I both hate and like the shine of cooler. My top plate is full of fingerprints and scratches from wiping it down. This would be my standard cooler now. Felt like selling of the d15s now.

Time for me to give more love to this lovely thread :D

By the time i'm writting this, i could be the new owner of this Coolermaster CM STacker 830.

I have already purchased three of those Silverstone SST-FS304B RAID blackplanes, and if everything goes well, i will place all three in this case.

I'm dying to be there already :clap:
I used to have one of those years ago. Great airflow and built like a tank. Absolutely zero room for cable management, which caused me to ditch it finally. Good find, tho! It makes me nostalgic.

Got this SLI-DR in yesterday and testing showed it as a working board.
Believe this one will be prepped for subzero use after I finish my current work on my Sabertooth 2.0 for the same purpose. If not I have others for that, just have to decide which one I'll be running.
Took the chipset cooler apart without removing the base of it from the board and cleaned the cooler, fanblades and lubed the fan with 3N1 oil, whisper quiet with none of the expected noise some of these tend to have after a few years of being used.
Although I didn't remove the cooler base itself temps for the chipset are good so no need to mess with that - Let it ride.

A credit to Noctua, they do box things well!! Is it me or does that box seem rather out of proportion with the size of a 3.5g tube??
Yeah you could say that. but they include some alcohol wipes and some instructions are also printed on the inside of the pull out.

Wow that is some gorgeous ram for sure. Definitely needs to be seen in person to appreciate.
I originally was going to go 3600 CL16 for my Ryzen 3000 build but 3200 CL14 was too hard to pass up for $122 after the 10% coupon code Newegg was running.

Never thought I'd make an interesting tech purchase at my employer, but...

...I found this prepaid ZTE ZFive 2 in the clearance section for $10. It was originally $35.

It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, and it's running Android 6.0.1.

I have no plans to activate it on TracFone's network and use it as a phone (obviously, my LG V40 is leagues better than this). I got it as a cheap Android device to mess around with and probably try rooting at some point.
