Saturday's Goodwill find (sorta tech related)...



A pair of Definitive Technology ProMonitor 100s and a ProCenter 100. Total cost was around $35 because it was half-price day (Goodwill has some of the worst prices of any thrift store in my area any other day). Not sure what these went for back in the day, but Definitive's new stuff is priced similarly to high end stuff from Klipsch

I have them set up in my work-in-progress home theater setup. They're powered by my Denon AVR-1909.



The ProCenter 100 without its grille.



...and one of the ProMonitor 100s without its grille.

I hope to have a 5.1 setup in the near future. I got some Klipsch speakers a while ago that I want to use as surround speakers (just need to get more speaker wire and figure out where to put them), and I need to dig my old 10" RCA sub out of my closet since the little 6.5" Insignia one that I have just doesn't cut it.

now, if i would post my assembly worklog of a 292 plywood pieces 1:2 scale Hurdy Gurdy from Ugears (functional) that would be ... "sorta", since it is technic, but not tech as in technologic related (like speakers and other electronics tech related stuffs )

got a sweet deal for a friend who wanted TWS earbuds

30chf instead of 63chf and lucky they are not for me since i abhor that brand (they are the Razer of the audio headset... overhyped usually overpriced but unlike Razer some product i got from them for testing outlived their warranties without getting in multiple RMA ) 3 to 3.5* on 5* in reviews ... oh well they should be enough for my friend
1580112247215.png1580112237694.png

(obviously the only thing that is sweet is the price reduction, that put them almost at a relevant price ... 25chf would be the max i would pay for these, for laugh ... these things are even bigger than the Sudio Tolv i had and unlike them who have 7hrs playtime and 5 more charge with the case, these have 3hrs playtime plus 7hrs with the case meaning 10hrs :laugh: even 20$ AliExpress/Amazon/whatever etailer that deal in chinese oem/noname goods TWS earbuds have more playtime than that )

Is the quest finally complete? I have a Asus X399 Zenith Extreme on the way. This will be paired with a 420MM rad with 6 Noctua Redux 140MM fans and maybe some ARGB. I am wondering if I just hook the CPU to the loop or expand it to include my GPU(s). That would mean 2 Eisstations and 1 Eiswolf with a pump across 2 420MM rads. I already have one bottom mounted and will either put the other on the side or above the CPU socket to help dissipate some RAM heat. So would you guys build a full loop or keep them separate?


So the board arrived on Thursday. I built the system on Saturday and made a few notes (I am at work so I can't post pics) .

1. I tried to run everything as one loop and that lasted for about 15 minutes. The problem was that I had the loop going from the CPU to the GPU. This made the GPU temps spike to the point where the entire GPU block(on both cards) was quite warm. So I put the CPU on it's own and kept the GPUs on their own.

2. A full cover waterblock is actually better than the Noctua TR4 cooler in terms of performance. I used the same thermal paste and idle and load temps dropped by 3-5 degrees C. I went from 36 C and 55 C to 31 C and 51 C. Not that that makes a difference.

3. I can use all of my RAM slots, any GPU and can see the LCD screen on the I/O cover due to the small footprint of the block.

4. The Eisstation is nice pump that has great flow rate and a ton of options for in/out, but the pump makes noise. It is actually the loudest thing in my rig.

5. The cost was not as high as it could have been. The rad was used from an EIsbaer unit that I got for $87 on Aquatuning one day. The pump was $87 on Amazon and the water block was about $110 after the conversion so for $314 but if I just use the cost of the RAD from the whole EIsbaer I would say $30 so call it $257 before taxes and fees.

Accelero III, i already have the Morpheus but it means using 15mm fans in the bottom and with this i can use 25mm fans.

1080ti 58c max with quiet fan profile, fans exhausting out the bottom.

But good god is it hot in there....
Since these 2 pictures I have managed to cram in 2 slim 120mm fans at the bottom, one 120mm fan at the top, one 120mm fan on the side, and it also has a pre-installed 92mm fan at the back.
1580163088782.png

it definitely needs an sfx power supply, as my current TX650 is pushing the card down, and the cable mess is atrocious.
Also will be planning to watercool the graphics card, as even with this amount of airflow it still sits at around 78C, and sounds like a jet engine about to take off...

how are you cooling your stuff, if you don't mind me asking?

1 noctua 120mm on the side blowing onto the cpu cooler (a raijantek low profile 90mm cpu cooler on the core i7 4770) and a 120Mm on back blowing out.

My temps are solid. Never had a heat issue.

Only issue is coil whine from either gpu or PSU but that's a different issue.

No point for front fan as there isn't much to pull air through and top isnt much help either as I tried it.

yeah, that's probably why your temps are good, my 2070s is dumping all the heat inside the case, and the fans are not fast enough to exhaust the heat.

You could try putting a 120mm at the front and have the side and back fans push air out. It may help with your gpu dumping heat in the case. Noctua's are great. I get the redeux ones for about $17 CAD and they do wonders.

A Huge Thank You to @rtwjunkie for having my perfect Xmas gift to myself !

Mild Oc to 1400/2000 and has made my old system complete :toast:

Also just by luck getting groceries one day I seen a clearance tag at my Walmart, Reduced from $529 to $229, I scanned the tag to lookup the item and it showed $124.
I called the gal over and asked her to scan the box for the price and sure enough, $124. Soooo I swooshed back over to the dept my wife is OTC mngr, and tell her , there's a $500+ WiFi for 125, I Really think we need to get it. She know's that with a 200x300 yard that it'd be nice to have better coverage so She's like " well if's it That cheap then I guess"
So indeed got it and it's been the Only one that has worked with the ATT Arris Gateway ! Got them on each end of the house about 80ft apart, and it still get's over 1Gb on the backhaul to each other.

Found this at Goodwill today...



...an LG Flatron 24EN43V-B 24" 1080p monitor. It was marked $17.49, and student discount day dropped that to $13.12.

Picture quality looks good. No dead pixels or anything. It is a TN panel, but I've been using those for a long time, so it doesn't bother me. I still need to tweak the color settings so it matches my main monitor.



I've switched to a dual monitor setup with this instead of my triple monitor setup with some old 5:4 Dell monitors. We'll see how this goes.



I want to get a proper dual-monitor stand for these at some point.

i needed another set of accu, so i thought why not take something that can also double as an emergency powerpack
(4x2300mAh, which is a bit lower than my set of Eneloop Pro at 2500mAh but still fine for my usage )

the only cons would be the Mini USB connection :laugh:

Got this for emulators on my Note 4, tested it out with Drastic running PM Soul Silver and it works great, much nicer than the crap on-screen controls. With the stylus it's actually like using a real DS albeit a bit more chunky.
Was using my old modded PSP for GBA & NES/SNES games but I guess I can retire it for now too.
