well, if your card is placed with fans facing down, like most of pc cases, heavy cards do have sagging, no way they don't, but if your card is placed upside with fans, there is no sagging then :)

@TheLostSwede My ISP *finally* decided to upgrade my modem :D

Old.jpg

^Made almost 5 years ago... (old one)

New.jpg

^New one (made 3 months ago).

Now the other good news : Goodbye 250/50 Mbit/s...
Hello 1Gb/s GPON connection :)



2,4GHz WiFi (Netgear R7800 + Intel AC 9260) :


5GHz WiFi (Netgear R7800 + Intel AC 9260) :


Not sure how fast WiFi should be on 2x2 AC WiFi card (2,4Ghz vs. 5GHz), but above result is best case scenario on my end.

I think there is only two other users of this fibre connection in whole building I live.
Signal strength (data from InSSIDer) :
Around -35dBm on 2,4GHz,
Around -43dBm on 5GHz.
Samsung S10 on 5GHz (same spot as previous results) :

I just wanted to clarify the only reason why I'm sad is that I can't even get speeds a 30th of those where I live in the UK :( I am very much looking forward to moving to somewhere that has much faster internet!! :)

Well I've saved a few things to put up here so, here goes :)

132801


132802


These where for my SR-2 but having just noticed that they are 4Gb sticks and I thought they where 2Gb sticks... I'm going to hang my head in shame....

132803


Another upgrade for one of my crunchers and for my Dell R620 server.. Sadly I need to get a heatsink for it, as it's only a single CPU setup, but my very awesome mate @TheMadDutchDude has sorted me out with a pair, so :D :D

132804


Always need to test with CB :D :D

132805


Thankfully the CPUs both work, I am looking forward to testing them together whenever that might be :D

Here's a few bits from a friend who knows I have a big problem with not being able to throw things out, so he gives it to me instead! :) Thank you @blindfitter :D

132806


132807


These are for some upgrades for my R730 server, I currently have two but they are both only single CPU setups and only have two sticks of RAM in, since it's DDR4, it's still kinda pricey... They both had quad core Xeon's (E5-2628 V3) and 32Gb (2 x 16Gb) so I thought why not, lets make them a little more beefier :D
But I noticed that I bought the wrong CPUs as these are 8C 8T models, I was a little gutted... These might be getting taken back by the seller for me, or if not, I'll sell them on. They where fairly well priced, I thought they where a slightly different model, so numpty here needs to have a better look at things lol

132809


I just had to do a CB run :D :D

132810


Here's another upgrade for the R620 server, 8 sticks of DDR3, so a total of 64Gb... Completely overkill and I'll never need it but what's wrong with having a bit of overkill??......

132811


132812


132813


132814


132815


As both of my Z77 and Z97 systems, where only 8Gb RAM, I thought I'd like to make them 32Gb as I thought 16Gb was so last year, I thought what the hell :)

132816


132817


132818


I had some fun with the RAM since my Z77 didn't seem to like the 32Gb and came back with an error in MemTest, actually a lot of errors...
I tried them in the Z97 and tested each stick individually with Memtest for at least two passes and they came back with no errors.. Then I tried all 4 together and set just the XMP, then ran again another two passes and that was that... Worked fine.. They also suggested I use RamcheckLX rather than Memtest, but I'm not sure I have the cash for a RamcheckLX .... lol

And last but certainly not least....

132819

132820

132821

132822
132823


Oh and here's one more thing... Well, technically two I guess....

132824


But I'll ask this... What's better than 2 12C 24T CPUs?.......

132825


Well obviously 4 12C 24T CPU's !! :D :D
My good friend @TheMadDutchDude helps me with the crazy %$"^%"$ in me, so at least two of these will be being sent over to the UK at some point :) Also there's another stick of the Crucial RAM as well, to make my second 32Gb set of the RAM :)

And here's one more shot that might show a bit more of the crazy in me :)

132826


Not the best of angles but I hope that makes at least one or two people smile :)

Been trying to get these pictures up for a while so I hope they are acceptable :) Thanks for looking and many apologies for the amount of pics!!

The WiFi performance looks about right, so nothing to worry about there.
I'm a bit jealous both at your ping and your speed though...

Thankfully the CPUs both work, I am looking forward to testing them together whenever that might be :D

Here's a few bits from a friend who knows I have a big problem with not being able to throw things out, so he gives it to me instead! :) Thank you @blindfitter :D

These are for some upgrades for my R730 server, I currently have two but they are both only single CPU setups and only have two sticks of RAM in, since it's DDR4, it's still kinda pricey... They both had quad core Xeon's (E5-2628 V3) and 32Gb (2 x 16Gb) so I thought why not, lets make them a little more beefier :D
But I noticed that I bought the wrong CPUs as these are 8C 8T models, I was a little gutted... These might be getting taken back by the seller for me, or if not, I'll sell them on. They where fairly well priced, I thought they where a slightly different model, so numpty here needs to have a better look at things lol

I just had to do a CB run :D :D

Here's another upgrade for the R620 server, 8 sticks of DDR3, so a total of 64Gb... Completely overkill and I'll never need it but what's wrong with having a bit of overkill??......

As both of my Z77 and Z97 systems, where only 8Gb RAM, I thought I'd like to make them 32Gb as I thought 16Gb was so last year, I thought what the hell :)

I had some fun with the RAM since my Z77 didn't seem to like the 32Gb and came back with an error in MemTest, actually a lot of errors...
I tried them in the Z97 and tested each stick individually with Memtest for at least two passes and they came back with no errors.. Then I tried all 4 together and set just the XMP, then ran again another two passes and that was that... Worked fine.. They also suggested I use RamcheckLX rather than Memtest, but I'm not sure I have the cash for a RamcheckLX .... lol

And last but certainly not least....

Oh and here's one more thing... Well, technically two I guess....

View attachment 132824

But I'll ask this... What's better than 2 12C 24T CPUs?.......

View attachment 132825

Well obviously 4 12C 24T CPU's !! :D :D
My good friend @TheMadDutchDude helps me with the crazy %$"^%"$ in me, so at least two of these will be being sent over to the UK at some point :) Also there's another stick of the Crucial RAM as well, to make my second 32Gb set of the RAM :)

And here's one more shot that might show a bit more of the crazy in me :)

Not the best of angles but I hope that makes at least one or two people smile :)

Been trying to get these pictures up for a while so I hope they are acceptable :) Thanks for looking and many apologies for the amount of pics!!
Dang it @phill, that's a lot of hardware for one post.

I try to never look at things on my phone unless it's just a quick Google search to be honest. I hate trying to see a full screen on a mobile screen, just never seems to work for me... I did think should I put these pics in a link for people to click on to rather than just uploading the images like I did.. Never sure of the right way to do things... :(

Hopefully it made a few people smile :)

Appreciate the post. In the future though thumbnails are the more practical way to go.

I could always change them into thumbnails if that was easier? :) I don't mind doing that :)
