a bit of a silly idea ... doesn't go in "my pc atm" nor in "ghetto modding"

oh well i am not sure i did post that NZXT Cryo E40 on the thread

sturdy metal grid 2x 80mm fans (way better than one single big fan, since you can direct the airflow where it it needed and usually laptops have 2 vents that would need that)
NZXT_Cryo_E40.jpgNZXT_Cryo_E40_laptop_cooler_03.jpgCryo-03.jpg

so i found that one back on the "forgotten realm of the dark age of hardware buying without real need for it" shelf... don't blame me, it was cheap :laugh: (~15$)

well i found an use to it ... got a good tablet? an event on a mobile game need intensive farming? don't want to use LDPlayer on the PC because you need the PC for something else? your sofa is too hot...

fret not! the solution is the "please don't kill me i am out of idea" battlestation!
IMG_20200328_162457.jpg
lucky the Mediapad M5 8.4" is just the right size for the rubber pad to hold her in place, the angle crafted carefully using the edge of the sofa doesn't let the pillow hinder the air intake, the aluminum back of the tablet is ideal and the addition of my Aukey 20'000 mAh and a short USB C cable make it perfect and transportable if ever needed


end words ... "always follow your compulsive buyer syndrome, anything can be useful one day ... yes ... even 250 TP rolls"

Forgot to make a post on the new addition to my CPU + Motherboard collection:
IMG_20200328_154146.jpg

Bought the little 8600K for only £134 in a bid I won on eBay and the z390i phantom for £178 off eBuyer (ouch!)
Sadly, the z390i phantom I had scored off eBay for £115 was badly broken with a damaged CPU socket, damaged board traces and only ended up reading one RAM module, fortunately I obtained a refund (still processing) and managed to sort it out with the seller that covered postal fees (phew!)

Okay reviews show just it's horrible loud underload even the 50year anniversary edition even worse.

But it's a nice card the ref from AMD doesn't have a bad PCB actually but was it me I would had go with a custom cooler design or swapped the cooler like on my GTX 1080 Ti FE it became a Hybrid and I couldn't be happier with temps and it's still a blower style card :D

Out of all the tablet options to choose from the iPad still stands out. Would of preferred Android but Google seems to have given up getting Android tablet friendly/usable.

well ... given that the only real concurrent for my Huawei Mediapad M5 8.4" is an iPad mini ... i can understand although lucky me there was an alternative and if i wanted a bigger size, they have it in 10.1"

my parents have each an iPad mini, they would gladly swap, if they didn't have all their apps and account linked to Apple closed ecosystem (some app are cross platform but that's a minority for them )
-aluminum unibody? check
-stereo speaker tuned by Harman Kardon and driven by a dedicated AK4376 DAC? check
-2.5K screen with no marketing Gimmick in 16/9 ratio? check
-decent spec enough to run anything modern on it? check (although still on Android 9.0 at the moment but still, update mania is not the only way, as long a sit work: don't try to fix it ... and the OS is perfectly -fine on tablet, but that's thanks to Huawei, not Google, although some apps could need rework, but that's developers fault not Google or Huawei )
-fast charging and more than decent autonomy? check
-pricing? a little less than 300chf, check (for a 32gb with expansion possibility rated up to 1 uSD 128gb max .... using a uSD 256gb since i got her without issues :rolleyes: :ohwell: )

also i noticed there is the M6 out, sporting a Kirin 980 instead of the 960 (which is what i have in my View 20, which is under Android 10.0 atm, and it's still a monster of a SOC ) the 960 have some limitation and was one of the only cons reviewer could find in the M5 (although minor, and the other were: "mediocre camera performances", well it's a tablet ... not caring at all, for me at last and "no headphone jack" but still packed an USB C adapter.) pricing at the moment is a little under 400chf ... might be my next option, but i am fine for now

one review mentioned "no waterproofing" as a cons ... but Waterproofing is a plague ... for one that work as a pool lifeguard ... all these idiot taking selfies ( it's fine when you are alone but not in a freaking pool surrounded by strangers that do not want to be on their selfies) giving the phone to the kids so they can browse FB or play games in the pool (oohhhh, come on... seriously?) et caetera... :laugh:

;) i am not dissing your purchase ofc :toast:

Thanks ive always used Corsair with zero issues.
for me it would depend who's the OEM, because the only PSU i had from Corsair was also the only one with some issues (minor) and the OEM behind was Great Wall (i should have known ... with a name like that ... ), if it's Seasonic or Superflower or FSP or even CWT, most HX have CWT as OEM (fine with the DSAIII and DSG series) and a few have Seasonic (S12/S12II and G series ) the HX 850w some are CWT DSG series

now that i look back ... the one i had was a CX 550 ... if i took the 600 or 650 instead the OEM would have been CWT with the DSAIII series

now i either take from the brand i mentioned above or check if the OEM behind is one of them...

my Seasonic M12II Evo 750w bronze is perfect for now (and served in 3 consecutives build)

Okay reviews show just it's horrible loud underload even the 50year anniversary edition even worse.

But it's a nice card the ref from AMD doesn't have a bad PCB actually but was it me I would had go with a custom cooler design or swapped the cooler like on my GTX 1080 Ti FE it became a Hybrid and I couldn't be happier with temps and it's still a blower style card :D
Yes i knew this,i had gpus blower..i dont mind about noise,pc is downfloor and is not like a jet actually.

I already have five of these things, yet I still feel the need to buy two more because they're only a couple of bucks each :D
This Ebay seller I go through has been great, they test the processors and always send a matched pair with the latest stepping.

I'm on the other side of the Pacific and have basically never sold anything, but I'd imagine the local deals over there are better anyway. I've found that lately people have been practically giving away their LGA775 gear.
