Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
also wondering if I can get away with running this thing without any cooling?
probably not ... the last RPi i ran and still run without cooling is a RPi Zero which is a RPi 1 in a ultra small form factor the RPi2 ran fine stock with a simple aluminum heatsink the RPi3 needed a fan added to the heatsink (even at stock ) to keep in the mid 50C
basically starting with the RPi2 they recommended running at last a heatsink for stock speed (and the RPi4 had some heat and power issue at launch )

an Odroid C2 (same generation as RPi3 but almost on the RPi4 2gb level ) could run fine with the integrated heatsink (only 11$ more than a RPi3 at 35$, when you find one at that price :laugh: , but didn't skimp on the heatsink :p or the EMMC interface) @1.5 but needed a fan @2.0 generally running at 45C
i still keep my OC2 with my Schroff Interscale M case, although i replaced it with a Mi Box S for mediacenter usage which sport the same AMLogic S905 (reported as a L but it's strange that AIDA64 report it as a L since it clearly has VP9 decoding ... and has camera interface ... see spoiler below :roll: ) SOC @1.5 but with a simple heatsink
Amlogic S905 – Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53-based SoC with a Mali-450 MP3 GPU running at 750 MHz, supports hardware decoding up to 4K@60fps for multiple formats including H.265 10-bit, H.264, AVS+.
Amlogic S905X – Similar to S905 except it supports up to 4K@60fps VP9 profile-2 hardware decoding, HDR, HDMI 2.0a and having a built-in DAC.
Amlogic S905L – Similar to S905X except it supports HDMI 2.0b but lack VP9 decoding, camera interface and TS inputs.

Are the rads there for show or with all the fans, just to help weigh it down to keep it on the desk???? ;)
The five Hardware Labs multiport rads were a very early element of the build design for a CPU-only short waterloop back in May of 2017 along with a Singularity Computers 100ml reservoir and AquaComputer PWM D5 pump ... Planning for a Rampage VI Extreme motherboard and an 8-core Intel 7820X HEDT processor launching later in September 2017.

Mainstream at that time, only offered 4-cores.

Then the Coffee Lake 6-core 8700K CPU was announced along with the Z370 chipset arriving in October and when delidded and binned, the thermal efficiency was so amazing for the paste TIM delta to liquid metal TIM, there was absolutely NO NEED for the waterloop.

But, I had already placed so much time and planning into the "Form Follows Function Oddly Asymmetric Ugliest Computer On Planet Earth Build", I didn't have the heart to remove the now useless rads. D5 pump and reservoir are also still in place. lol

It's ugly, but I love it. :oops:

...and the rads give skinny bear a place to sit. :laugh:

Insane performance for the price. Atleast from what I can tell, running these on X299 in 4x8GB quad-channel 4000MHz 15-15-15. The sticks can go higher on the frequency, I did not fully test the potential yet. Just threw them in, set 4000 15-15-15 and some loose RAS / RFC values. My CPU hates high memory frequency, the 4400 XMP profile does work but requires a very high Uncore-Offset voltage so I opted for the tighter timings instead.

Edgy. But no. Way less edgy than that.

Some people here know, and are laughing their butts off right now, but it's really OT for here.

Just purchaed this for $110 CAD but decided to pay $10 for 3 years warranty as I wont have a machine to build in it anytime soon and just to make sure I can take it back if the USB C and what not doesnt work. But I sure love the case in overall looks.








Please excuse the photo quality as I took it in my basement and we are still working on developing it so lighting is bad.

And only because my ASUS ROG Strix Impact from December 2019 is a total POS. Its main left-click button started failing (double-clicking).

Could never really get along with the Strix Impact. It forgets DPI settings after ErP-compliant shutdown, forces you to create an ASUS account for Armory Crate to remember settings (else the mouse won't even appear in its device list). Just one fail after another. Never going to buy an ASUS peripheral again.

You bought a Prius? :twitch:

As for mouse settings goes, I've found that it seems to be getting worse across the board. This is my second Logitech mouse that is having a hard time sticking to the settings (a G502 SE). It also get over-ridden by iCue at times, which is utterly bizarre, as it's at random, plus at shut-down or reboot. It will also randomly turn the LEDs on and change colour at times, even though I've set it to off. Maybe there are just a lot of lazy software developers out there using some common code that interferes with other things using the same code?

On a side note, seeing how scratched up your monitor stand is, I'm glad I never bought one of those Samsung screens, regardless of how cheap they were at one point.

Been using the Glorious Model D since January, and it's software and DPI settings are rock solid and must save within a chip inside the mouse, when moved to another computer - all your settings go with you and remain intact.

For gaming, it's an awesome mouse feels wireless, although the lighting even on lowest brightness level makes your hand extremely WARM and uncomfortable after only a few minutes of play, one of those so obvious things I simply didn't think about when buying the new mouse. For an all-around mouse it's pretty ok, as a work mouse - not good at all, but it's only $49. :ohwell:

Please never take away the Logitech MX 3 Master - it's a truly "glorious" work mouse, comfortable all day long.

Can easily set the Glorious Model D lighting to OFF, so the hand warming effect is then - not an issue.

Never going to buy an ASUS peripheral again.
...aaand I just did.

But it's analog (3.5 mm), so I don't have to put up with Armory Crate.

For the equivalent of $40.

Paired with an SB Recon3D PCIe, it sounds strictly okay. I would probably pay $30 for something that sounds like this. But ASUS's pitch for this headset is "durability," so we'll see about that.

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
My beast is finally here! My "laptop" aka lap burner. It is the Aftershock Forge 15R basically a local version of the XMG Apex 15 based on a Clevo chassis. Gosh this is my most expensive purchase but comparing with a small form factor desktop with these the price difference is not much. But welp there goes my half my savings, I hope this last long enough. I never had a computer this powerful before, my PC was the Ryzen 1700 with Rx460 in my sig that I last sold a few months back thinking of an upgrade. Was stuck on a duo core for awhile after that.

Still need time to set the laptop up, I decided to upgrade the ram on my own, got to test that also need a reinstall of the windows too with a version I got. I saved the cost on ram and windows. I am posting this post on the laptop now.

Spec is as follows :
Cpu : Deskstop AMD RYZEN 9 3900X
Gpu : NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 (MAX PERFORMANCE EDITION)
Ram : 8GB x 1 (Going to self upgrade to 64GB)
Storage : 512GB M.2 NVME SAMSUNG SSD
Wifi : IINTEL W-iFi 6 AX200
Screen : 15 inch 144Hz 1920x1080 ips display
Power supply : 220w chico brick
