As promised, a pic of the MSI Z87 G45 Gaming, booted right up after installing my CPU.


Never did run HWInfo64 on my ASrock, but noted a weird temp reading......is it reading the temps wrongly? In BIOS, the CPU temps is show to be around 38C-40C, but HWINFO64 has me thoroughly confused.....high 60's?! This during system idle, no running programs.....zip, nada!

Collection of stories by Raph Koster about his time developing MUDs, Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, and other games. MUDs are a bit before my time, but still interesting. Definitely looking forward to the section on UO as I saw it launch.

Hey guys, I'd expanded on the circled/highlighted temps and saw that it was 'distance from tjmax', I just check for meaning of 'distance from TJMAX, and came up with:
'tj max is the maximum temperature the CPU is rated for'

So, I guess the greater the 'distance' the better, I think my CPU is rated at up to 90C max.

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.
View attachment 143409
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...

Right, since my last post I have done the following:
-Replaced the TX650 power supply with an SF600 Platinum (the one that has individually sleeved cables, and rated 80Plus Platinum, hence the name)
-Water Cooled the RTX 2070 Super using a Kraken G12 and a Corsair H55
-replaced the Wraith Spire and water cooled my CPU as well with another H55
-replaced some fans with Akasa 120mm slim fans, couldn't find any shorter screws for the fans, so had to cut some that I had with a dremel
-stuck a little 60mm from Fractal Design that I had laying around from my old FX build on to the motherboard's VRM and overclocked the CPU to 4GHz, seems to be holding very stable

The fans on the VRM and the radiator are connected directly to the GPU via PWM adapters, and are controlled by the card's built in fan curve, which makes it very silent, yet still quite effective, and temperatures never exceed 62C

This was by far the most exciting, yet frustrating (at times) build I've ever done, but I'm quite pleased with the result achieved :D

Second time was the charm...



Ordered a cellular WWAN module for my EliteBook. I had originally ordered an identical module from a Dell laptop, but I got an error saying it had been disabled due to incompatibility.

After being mildly infuriated by HP's shittyness, I ordered an official HP module (which was $4 more). Thankfully, the seller of the Dell module was understanding and is offering a full refund when I return it.



Stuck it in the laptop, and it recognizes it! Now I just need to get it connected to my plan. I checked the IMEI on their site, and it says it'll work.



EDIT: Turns out the only plan from my provider that'll work is a scam-and-a-half. It's $50 a month for a whopping 6GB of data, and after that, it looked like $0.25 per megabyte.

What year is it again? That's $250 for one extra gigabyte of data. Needless to say I'll be looking at other providers.

So, for Christmas I went in on a coupla Klipsch floorstanders, an Onkyo receiver, and a Fluance turntable for my mom. She has been all about it since then, but started complaining that she couldn't listen when dad was sleeping. So I gave her my HD 600's, thinking I've still got my DT-990 Pro's... which I do still like a lot. I figured if I don't want for more with them, then I'll have gotten rid of something I didn't need for someone else to appreciate. She loves the 600's. I'm not asking for them back haha.

Well... the Bayers ARE nice. Never a more comfortable pair of headphones. They're very dynamic and wide, with really lively tonality. Really crisp highs and bouncy, if light bass. But I'll tell you, most of the distortion has to be in the 7-11khz range. They just sound very forward and 1-dimensional. Ya just kinda lose stuff up there in the artificial grain. It gives the impression of more detail. But it's just because there's a lot of energy up top. Lots of sparkle. Like fake hi-fi. I actually like that about them sometimes - it's really exciting. But it can get fatiguing and makes them sound a bit dry. For $120 they're still a great buy, but they're love it or hate it. Meaning... some days I just don't want to put them on, other days I'm all about it.

So I thought about getting a new pair of HD 600's. I love those headphones. But then I looked on massdrop (the 'drop' or whatever) and saw the HD6xx for $200 and went for it. See what the difference really is. Build seems the same as the HD 600's I had before, though I almost like the finish on those better. The dark blue is boring and looks cheap. They can still make for some nice blurry pics though. :D

Maybe I'll paint them at some point. Coming from the DT-990's it's like a re-awakening. I don't understand how these can be so much darker-sounding and still have so much clarity. The highs on these are smooth, even compared to how I remember my HD 600's sounding. It's almost like they're not actually much darker... like where there are fast HF transients like the clack on a ride, the snap of a snare, the subtle chirps and clicks of picks striking guitar strings... that stuff still pops out. The 'wind' of a singer's voice and all of those subtle overtones you get with different high-register sounds are strong. What these things do to vocals of all kinds is kind of magical. I dare say they're a little quicker and more responsive up there. The instrument separation is on another level. I hear reverb and synths completely different on these vs the DT-990's. The space.

They sound so much more welcoming... even than the HD 600's. These have weightier, punchier bass than I remember the 600's having. DEFINITELY more than DT-990's ever did. They just seem to compliment everything. Just a hair more natural than the 600's, but enough that I'm like "Wow I can no longer enjoy the HD 600's like I did before." It's a wholesome sound, for lack of a better word. Not dazzling, but does everything right. For $200 these things are sick as hell.

They pair great with a Schiit Vali 2. Thinkin about passing that on next and snagging a Valhalla 2. I don't know if I'll ever replace my Modi 2 Uber, though. When they first came out, they weren't that impressive, but the later switch to a 4490 chip made them more like a Bifrost D/S... maybe even better. I've got one of the first 4490 ones. Not the most transparent dacs, but nice sounding. Like to try some Modibit with the HD6xx's and Valhalla 2, but it feels like too minor of an upgrade to be worth the cash.

Nice headphones, and no one has perfect spelling.

I probably would've caught that if I actually looked dammit. Spellcheck has me overlooking squigglies just due to the sheer number of things it highlights that I don't want/need to correct... and I am too lazy to add them.

They're snug. Not uncomfortably clampy. You know they're there. I went right to wearing them for about 4 hours and it hadn't gotten to me yet. When I took them off I realized they were a little tighter than I'm used to.

But then, my 600's were a little tight when I got them, too. After a while they seemed to stretch out a bit and slip on and off of my head pretty easily.

And I still don't know what it is....
It's for a smartphone/tablet touchscreen. There's a link at the bottom of my prior post that goes to ifixit guide.

Here's my post the day I placed the order.

Ran into Anchorage for another 16 GB kit of DDR4-3200 MHz PNY RAM as I already have installed.

It turns out I picked up a 2666 MHz DDR4 kit instead when it should of been the exact same 3200 MHz I already had at a little over half the cost I originally paid for the 3200 MHz kit ($297 vs $77.97.)

The 2666 MHz kit with the 3200 MHz kit will overclock to 3400 MHz but the IC's are Hynix with Samsung. Turns out AMD's IMC is a bit more flexible with mismatched memory than I've given them credit for.

$297 for a 3200mhz kit?! Those must have been the bad days... I thought I had it bad with my g.skill 3600/CL17 for $240. Playing $300 for THOSE would have killed me! Dark, dark times holy crap.

That is interesting though, running Hynix and Samsung together... I guess as long as you can sync the clocks/timings, it's all good? :rolleyes:

Looks like 3333 MHz is as good as it might get. Copy bandwidth in AIDA64 went up, and latency.

Hy, i think you are running your dimms in the wrong slots. You should run 2 of the same ram in slot 1 and 3 and the other 2 same sticks in slot 2 and 4. Also try and set all of the timings manually not just the primary...
This, you clearly have them paired up in 1/2 and 3/4instead of 1/3 2/4.
