Does this count as tech purchase? It has an electronic ignition system and Core i7 sticker that I put there for no apparent reason. :D Electronic ignition is standard on modern chainsaws and contains a certain chip. I have no idea how it looks and who made it because there's no way to "open" the ignition module without destroying it. So it should count as tech purchase, right?

Brace yourselves, winter is coming! Condition: impeccable for a 30 year old machine. All original parts, never opened, very light use. Specs: 61,5 ccm, 4,6 PS, compression 11,5 bars (~170 PSI), cold start after 4-5 pulls, hot after 1 pull.

No other tech purchase but I will have to buy soon a new external hard drive because I accidentally dropped the one with large capacity and that didn't end up well. :banghead: Most of my "important" stuff is gone if you know what I mean, but other stuff like family photos, videos, purchased software is on another external drive.
Hold my beer...

I was looking for a GPU support bracket that I saw another member had here somewhere in a thread. I finally found it and tried to order it from Micro Center. I live in a small town in Alaska and the only way to get parts is to drive 3 hours (one way) to Anchorage or order stuff online. All was going well with the purchase until I was ready to checkout. Something made me pause and rethink the order. Can anyone tell me why:

Well I'm waiting on some pics from my mate in the US for a few things but I've grabbed a few small bits and pieces of late so I thought I'd share them with you :)

Two original Abit northbridge fans.. My one is currently not the best in the business, so I thought for the £3 each that won me both, why not :D

IMG_20201210_012703.jpg

After having a look about for a few things I needed for some of the loops I'm trying to get sorted out and built, I needed a few random bits and picees for the cooling loops.. One of them was the tape which I've not used previously but since it was all 20% discounted because of whatever discount day you wish to label it, I grabbed a few things :)

IMG_20201210_164144.jpg IMG_20201210_215749.jpg IMG_20201210_220114.jpg IMG_20201210_220244.jpg IMG_20201210_220314.jpg IMG_20201210_221142.jpgIMG_20201210_221202.jpg IMG_20201210_222121.jpg IMG_20201210_230721.jpg

Although I'm surprised at EK not knowing the length of the screws they are putting in these pump brackets. The ones I've had so far (at least 6 so far) the instructions show M4 x 10 caphead, well unless my eyes aren't working or 6mm is the new 10mm or whatever the case might be... I think they need to put some longer screws in.... They come with a plastic washer that shows you need it on before you put the nut through and connect it to the bracket but as you can imagine, 6mm isn't long enough and well, yeah....

IMG_20201224_020824.jpg IMG_20201224_021107.jpg

I saw this one and thought I'd like to get my Threadripper build under water cooling, so I always love the Heatkiller stuff (price, not sooooo much lol) but for £10 less than the guy had it up for posted (total to me was £70) I thought, well, why the heck not :) I've got my TR board out so I'm just going to make sure that everything is in the box and away we go :) I'm pretty sure it's not the original box for the block, I have a feeling its originally for a GPU but either way :)

IMG_20201212_153513.jpg

Oh yeah, I grabbed a few more kits of RAM... After finding the original 8 kits I'd bought a few weeks back, I found another 4 kits, that where exactly the same speeds/sizes and they where cheaper, so, I grabbed them :) Hopefully I've enough now to last a while, if not I'm gonna be &%$"&^... :laugh:

IMG_20201223_152330.jpg IMG_20201223_173205.jpg

With a few Z87/Z97 boards knocking about and I remember them releasing this CPU I thought, ah well why not. For about a tenner posted, it'll do lovely as a socket protector and a testing CPU as well :) Dual core goodness!! :D

I put a bid on this 16GB kit ( 4 x 4GB obviously) for some of the Asus boards I have for X79 and the like simply because I have had heard of issues with G Skill RAM with them but also I think it will look quite decent with my Rampage 4 Black Edition board. I might try and grab another kit so I can get 32GB in the board but meh, not in a rush for that at all.... :)

IMG_20201212_222430.jpg

And I feel that I'm saving the best till last...
I saw this amazing board that was marked down so low in price I thought, I need to find out what the heck is going on here.......

IMG_20201223_152822.jpg IMG_20201223_153506.jpg IMG_20201223_153926.jpg

So I messaged the seller and found he'd damaged a few pins in the socket. When I had it through the post after finishing work, I was like a kid in a sweet store and I had to stop what I was doing (apparently working at the time.... :laugh:) and I just had to focus my energy on the board... From the looks inside the socket, there didn't seem hardly anything really wrong with it.. So I had a look and a bit of a move about with some of the pins I could see that weren't looking so great and then got it connected up as bare and possible...

I'll save the results for a sec, but just bare in mind that the board was up for about £25 and already a complete bargain if it was possible to get it up and running... I managed to grab it for £10....... It's also helped me as I never expected to find one of these, finish off my collection of OC F motherboards...... I am rather happy with that :)

My first one seemed to be a bit pants if I'm honest, that topped out around 4.40GHz, I've not even tried the new one I've just picked up... I'm hoping that would be better but silicone lottery and all.....

The M.2 heatsink I posted I bought finally arrived. Transportation packaging didn't make it, but the product is not damaged. I hooked it up to my fan controller and it's breezing happily.
Some feedback: the tiny fan is dead silent. I tested turning the knob on the Lamptron and it didn't make much difference. There is a difference between the temperature on the display and a software. Software reports 35 degrees and the display shows 46. Not sure who's right or wrong :), but for the $12 bucks or so, it's a lot of fun.

My first one seemed to be a bit pants if I'm honest, that topped out around 4.40GHz, I've not even tried the new one I've just picked up... I'm hoping that would be better but silicone lottery and all.....
I got mine to 5.1, just needed more cooling. I reluctantly sold it in a system I built then to my suprise the guy returned and wanted to upgrage to a i7 so I got it back
