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? :)
Just grab some LM, it's not super cheap but 1g will last a good while, the difference is worth it.

Currently preloading it. Hope it ends up being good.

Pretty much a pre-assembled custom loop in a box. I had one of the older 240 versions, performance was pretty good.

The idea of new hardware (CPUs and GPUs) being a bit hard to come by, I figured I'd shift gears and get something else to entertain myself with.

I moved away from the 3 monitor setup (3 - 24" 1920x1080 monitors in 2D Surround for 5760x1080) and to a much improved single monitor.

Over Black Friday I found a helluva deal for a Dell 32" LED QHD monitor (2560x1440) for about $320. I picked it up last Saturday since I had to wait for stock to come in and now she's up and running and it's so nice. The monitor supports up to 165Hz, but I've got her set to 120Hz...easier on my 980Ti to keep up with the frame rates in games I'm playing.

In the picture (glare on the monitor is due to the flash I forgot on) you can see one of the 24" monitors to the left of my new one, I'm leaving that spare monitor out for the wife so when she works from home she can extend her macbook pro to it so she's not staring at a tiny 15" screen all day - plus she's used to using a couple of 27" monitors at work and she complains all the time about not having enough screen space to use.

Waiting on a few deliveries, but this came in the meantime and I really like it as an option for no ex drive cases.

BLAC X Duet drive double drive dock by Thermaltake.

I also bought the MX1 Plus Water Block by Thermaltake and am waiting on the CDL 480m Radiator.

The block is new and out of stock for a bit so I wonder - has anyone picked it up and using it yet?
I like Thermaltake for the most part, curious about other peoples feelings for T.T.
Here is the dock and water block. I can suggest the dock, works well and cheap.

Any feedback on the Water Block would be most welcome. :toast:

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
I got these two Creative products this week for cyber Monday week. A portable speaker and USB soundcard. Their selling for a huge discount and after contemplating for awhile I grab it knowing their original retail price is much higher. This would be my last spent in awhile for this current climate where I have to make my finances last.

Ever since I was a teen I had been a huge fan of creative with their mp3 players and soundcards. They have high quality products. The last portable speaker and USB external soundcard combo was more than 10 years ago. Finally a successor to them. This speaker is called "Iroar Go" a 5 driver speaker in small water resistant package The rectangle shape make it great to transport with my laptop. 3 drivers at the centre and 2 at side with the silver logo plate. It actually pretty heavy for its size, like I am carrying a brick. Testing this out, boy is the speaker loud. I am amazed by how crisp sounding it sound. Though my hearing now is not as good as when I was teen before they do sound great.

As for the soundcard, it does sound a lot better than onboard audio but comparing it with my other cheaper USB soundcard a Ugreen brand one, I don't feel like its a huge difference on my headphone. Have not fully test it out just a quick listen. So far the sound is a lot cleaner though but I prefer more punch on the bass side, I need to look at the eq settings. I guess this just how creative default sound like.

I had purchased my new monitor from Best Buy - the box almost just as bad as yours. It was NIB, but the outside of the box looked like it was drug across the concrete floor on a few sides of the box. The original seal on the box was still intact, so it hadn't been opened....but the outside of the box looked like crap.

I wanted to wait for the price of the 128GB version to drop even further but the battery in my mate 9 is rapidly deteriorating and the cold temperatures here arent helping.

Considered doing going down the cheaper route of replacing the battery but ebay listings on genuine batteries cant be trusted and £20 for less suspicious listings its a bit of a moot point when i could put that £20 towards something that is better, faster. Stronger.
