As long as it's the heads and not the thread that has the coating on, you should be good to go! :)
I need to redo the panhead screws Phill or just grab some nice anodized black ones online, the Plasti-Dip came out terrible :ohwell:, but the rest of the black-out is a big Yahoo! :clap:

The big white Lamptron reset dot, and those all black SilverStone sleeved front panel cables, woohoo! :clap:

GF says that white thing is "The All Seeing Eye."

:roll:

Had to connect the front panel PWR and RST LED + and - pins on the motherboard with solder drops (pic below) so the white Lamptron Vandal switch led would illuminate.

Since, as anyone who's been running their Primary OS drive in NVMe PCIe slots (instead of SATA ports) will tell you - the HDD/SSD activity led will not flash at all - ever.

So to get the white Lamptron lamp to glow, modification of the Maximus X Apex motherboard (below) was necessary.

I'm happy with the results. Go silver solder! :)

Two office computers. So much love. :clap:

It's a cable modem. @r.h.p - I'm having some of your Aussie beer today, haven't had ANY beer since February. The lager I like - everyone else HATES IT, especially Australians so I've learned.

I'm not sure why, it's pretty good when you let the oil cans get really super-chilled in the freezer.

Foster's Lager
That beer hasn't been an Aussie beer for quite a while, an English company owns it now.

I still like it, even though it's made in Atlanta, Georgia and Orlando, Florida under license.

A case of (12) 25ounce big oil cans is about $30.

I still like it in the oil cans very cold.

This simple build was so tiring for me today, because I'm so run down from the pandem

I have (6) direct lives to protect and I'm the one in full responsibility. :cry:

:)

That Noctua C14S HSF (heatsink fan) is really the functional big event for this simple build since I'm running no case fans. The down-firing 140mm 2000rpm PWM Noctua Industrial does all the work - cools the CPU fins and coldplate and also the VRM, DDR4 modules and (2) Optane M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 mounted on the ASUS DIMM.2 card when I have those installed.

Sorry about that Phill, I also had trouble loading this page today, not sure why - hope it's not my images. :oops: About images, if you look at the ones I posted last night - just boring LED office lighting they are ok but not great.

Although wow, those (3) images I posted this morning, WOW we had some gorgeous natural sunlight like 7am this morning - Sahara Golden Mist from Africa rolled in - so beautiful.

I have more of those Sahara Golden Mist hardware images to post up, if anyone truly loves them.

...only a boring iPhone 6 camera from 2014. :oops:

The sum of a few purchases I've made in the last few months.
not showing is the i5-9600kf hiding under a CoolerMaster 240 AIO.
Shown is the NZXT N7 370 Motherboard
16GB of Thermaltake ToughRam 4400MHz
and a used Asus dual 1060 6GB GPU that I purchased as not working. :laugh:
Altogether I think the black and white doesn't look too shabby together.

Finally! After 5 attempts, I finally got an OEM HDD shipped to me properly.

2 failed tries from Amazon - they just tossed the HDD in a plastic envelope.
2 failed tries from Newegg - they at least had the HDDs in a box, but an oversized box with little packing material. The HDDs just bounced around like bouncy balls inside.

I reached out to Newegg customer support and was rather short with them about their shipping standards and I left a scathing letter in the box when I returned the 2nd hard drive from Newegg about how poorly they've been packing these.

I gave Newegg one last try and they finally shipped a HDD packed properly. The HDD was in a small, secure HDD box with proper space holders and that box was cradled in a larger box with proper packing material encasing it to prevent things from bouncing around freely.

The HDD spins without making any unwanted sounds and read/writes are good for what the drive offers. Time to start backing up data!

You must be very happy with the setup currently? :)
Boot up time is a lot slower for whatever reason, but I can deal with that, and daily use I really don't notice any difference between my 3200G, the i5-9600kf or my Xeon e5-2680 V2.
This system was done just to satisfy the build urge and to be pleasing to my eye.
If I had to build another I would go for an APU system again with the next Gen, as that easily handled browsing and forums etc as it's not used for work related stuff or gaming.

Installation wasn't too hard on my GTX 1070.



It runs much cooler now. The highest temps I've seen so far were 59C during Time Spy and 61C while running MSI Afterburner's OC Scanner.

It's also quieter than my jury rigged cooling setup and much quieter than the stock fans.

EDIT: This thing is great. Under gaming loads with the clocks around 2050MHz, temps max out around 56C. With the stock cooler, it would get into the mid-70s. It's also pretty much inaudible over my system's cooling fans. Might want to invest in a support bracket though, since this thing is pretty heavy.

Since my main phone doesn't have a 3.5mm audio port, I've ordered an iBasso DC02 USB-C to 3.5mm HiRes Audio dongle, should be in in a couple of days' time (will post pic of it when I get it). Meanwhile, I've also trying another ChiFi IEM (I have two Senfers, and two other KZ's) in the KZ ZS10 Pro, each side has 4x BA + 1x Dynamic drivers, as well as a nice looking spare cable (I'm quite shallow) and a tiny protective case to house the IEM when I'm not using it.


The IEM does look quite nice, I'd chosen the one with purple housing with a metal cover, they'd even incorporated metal nozzle which is a nice touch, comes with silicon eartips of various sizes.

done some testing today.
runs like a million bucks.
I bought it cause in games like watchdogs 2,odyssey and origins my 5775c was already hitting its limits.

frankly I'm impressed this runs all those like it's nothing,40W package power draw :cool: getting 97% flat gpu usage in watchdogs 2 test where my 5775c struggled most.
my plan to get a locked sku and pair it with faster ram worked out nicely.low temps,low power draw,excellent performance.
ram oc is next on the agenda.I'll just shoot for higher MHz,timings are too time consuming,gonna leave them stock.

I knew it was gonna perform well,but I never expected it's so cool and power efficient for gaming.I shaved off 10-15 degrees and 20-25W while performance is better.

ran a stress test,1.056v and 47W o_O temps between 45-50.

Bought this little guy for the second rig (smaller rig). Its only job is to keep an i5-9400F tame so I can play with ASRock's "Base Frequency Boost" thingie.

I had zero hope it would fit into the Corsair 100R case, especially with ASRock's "XXL VRM heatsink," but miraculously it did. I had to redo radiator mounting once to get the EPS and 4-pin PWM connector in place.

Works like a charm, temperatures under 40C at 9400F stock (ambient temp 28C). Perfect conditions to play with ASRock Base Frequency Boost.
