I've managed to get a few things as well of late.. Thought I'd share them with you all...

I saw a cheap Seagate 5TB 2.5" drive whilst I happened to be on Amazon looking for some other bits and pieces...

IMG_20201129_221818.jpg IMG_20201129_232340.jpg IMG_20201129_234916.jpg IMG_20201130_220203.jpg

So I grabbed two, mate will have the other. Not a bad price I didn't think being £25 ish knocked off and it's nice and easy to move about so happy days :)

Next up I saw a Asrock Z87 OC Formula on Ebay... I thought, umm, looks good... So I looked it over and messaged the seller to find out what he was after for it.... Turns out, he wanted just £45 for it, so I basically had to wait for the guy who put the offer in first, but he never came back, so I ended up paying for it pretty quickly and well, here we go :)

IMG_20201202_162031.jpg IMG_20201202_162131.jpg IMG_20201202_162232.jpg IMG_20201202_162309.jpg IMG_20201202_162349.jpgIMG_20201202_162440.jpg

Very happy purchase, since I was after one and this was just too much of a bargain to say no to.... So I had to have it! :)

And then I happened to have a look around for another Asrock board, just so happened to be looking out and I found this for a bargain as well.... So I went and messaged the seller and we agreed a price that he wanted, £80 (I didn't bother to haggle much there, as the ones I'd previously seen where double that and some more... ) so again snapped his hand off and bought that asap.... The bidding showed a perfect socket and all the much needed accessories I was after, so I went nuts!

IMG_20201203_115823.jpg IMG_20201203_115912.jpg IMG_20201203_115946.jpg IMG_20201203_120032.jpg IMG_20201203_120229.jpg IMG_20201203_154136.jpg IMG_20201203_174901.jpg IMG_20201203_175453.jpg

Althought sadly when I got the board through and checked it over, I noticed that the socket was damaged, I was gutted... I messaged the seller and confirmed and he took full responsibility and was amazing about it. He said to basically give it a go to repair the socket, so I did and wow it must mean I actually know what I'm doing cos... Yeah, it works!! :D I'm going to try and install an OS today and get the rest of the board tested to just make sure that all the device drivers work and away we go :)

I also was having a look about for some memory, I was helping a mate get a X570 + 5950X sorted out and saw that Ebay had an offer on things to give out 20% discount for some items, so I went and found some of the Viper kits I had had in the past.. They where all in stock, lowest prices I could find (even checked the sellers main page and whilst the prices where cheaper there, with the discount, made it a steal!) so I kinda ordered a few kits and well they turned up pretty quickly as well...

IMG_20201203_154529.jpg IMG_20201203_175208.jpg

Now, we have 3 32GB 3200MHz kits (these are for the Mrs/my girls and the crunching PCs I have about the place and being less than £100 a set, it was such a bargain!!
I'd also seen some 32GB 3600MHz kits that where about £100 each with the discount, so I had 4 of those... Two for me and two for my mate, so my 3900X I have now with 64GB in when I finally can get a 5950X in my other Crosshair 8 board, I'll use the 3600MHz kit in with that.. I was toying with the idea of grabbing some G Skill Royal kits but as they seem to be releasing some higher bins kits and higher density kits as well, I might hold off and grab some at a later date..
And last but not least, I saw a 16GB 4000MHz kit as well, not the tightest of timings or anything at all, but again, 20% off made it around £90 and I thought why the heck not :D So I grabbed that too.... This will be going in my EVGA Z390 Dark that I have over in the US at the moment, along with a 9900k I've also got there :) I swear my mate must love me!! :laugh:

I've found and ordered two more motherboard and CPU combo's as well which I had my eyes on, so when they come through I'll get my mate to send me over some pics.. I've also ordered a few water cooling fittings since I've got a few loops to put together for some hardware here and missing a few things.. I'll post a few pics of those up as well when they arrive :) Have struggled like hell to get a basic part as far as I'm concerned for a drain barb, can't find one anywhere!

IMG_20201204_172036.jpg

What does anyone call these barbs?? I must be seriously stupid cos I can't find the little suckers anywhere!!

I've a few other bits and pieces that have turned up but I'll put more detailed pics and such in another thread, but here they are briefly...

Someone gave me a great deal on a PS5... Although I'm sure it was made by Sony and not Atari....... Meh, I'm sure I'll get to use it :D

Geez now that's a steal for one of the best 1150 boards out there. Time to do some SuperPi32M 5GHz Efficiency. :p

I've got some MX4 but I'm not sure that's the best in the world to use? Hopefully better than the Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 that was on there as that's all I had at the time...

A few purchases

View attachment 178570

For those that saw this: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...h-related-purchase-thread.225885/post-4407987

I returned the Case because i didn't like it and was too small, also no rear fan can be mounted, so i ordered Something a little bit bigger:

View attachment 178573

Pretty Funny such a big Case where you can mount 8x front Fans, 3x top fans and 2 rear fans :kookoo:

@phill ordered from UK

as soon as i get it delivered i will post some pictures.
You should have said, if you used my account I might have been able to get you free delivery!! :D

Can't wait to see the pics when it comes through @Knoxx29 !! :D

I have heard of it before but never used it.. It might be worth a go! :)

Not logged off far :) Just downloading a few codec's for my server..

So which I already had hoped and guessed, that the MX-4 is better stuff, what about the Noctua stuff that @kapone32 suggested? How does that compare to the MX-4? :)

Sorry for the late response. Does this help? And you've already logged off. So much for catching you while logged in.

I can only compare it to what I have used before. It is about 3 degrees cooler than the NTH1 paste for Noctua which was about 2 degrees cooler than the MX-4. One thing I can say is that the Noctua is a newer formula that spreads easy and has no burn in time.
