Construction is solid and odd thing to say about a patch panel, but it looks pretty good too. I guess I've just used some really ugly panels in the past to be impressed by this one :)

gosh that page was a pain to scroll :laugh: thumbnail please :roll: (on a 3k screen also ... )

late xmas gift ... (bargain bin local etailer 5chf well since i got the pre sequel and the number 2 free on Epic ... why not ) smaller (thinner rather) typical DVD/CD case but code in a box, does not matter i like having boxes for my collection :oops:
View attachment 181349View attachment 181350

nooooow .... 91gb download waiting game START!
91GB.... That would take me.... 2 or 3 days to download!! :laugh:

As my eldest was finally with me, yesterday we ended up opening a few more presents that we had as we wanted to wait for her to be with us when we opened them......

I grabbed a few films to add into the collection... Thought I'd be different and measure by an 8 year old and a 22 month old :laugh:

IMG_20201227_172329.jpg

Had these from my best mate... He knows me well! :laugh:

IMG_20201227_195452.jpg

The film is a complete pee take of the Fast and Furious as you can probably tell by the case.. Brilliant but awful! :laugh: Been after the disk set for Windows 3.11 but the crazy guy has found me DOS install as well!!
And something to help me stay out of the forum The Filthy, Rotten, Nasty, Helpdesk-Nightmare picture clubhouse .....

IMG_20201228_171158.jpg IMG_20201228_171203.jpg

Got to give it a quick check and test this evening.. Works really well. Even with using the lowest setting it really does have a great throughput of air (I was going to say blow but... I'm childish and would just see the rudeness in it :laugh: :roll: :rolleyes: )

Gave my Scythe heatsink a new life in about 30 seconds :) Will see if I can get a video of it at some point :)

Also got my Razor Blackwidow Elite keyboard as well.. Aside from the very clicky keys, it's brilliant!! The only reason for the clicky keys being too loud is when you have your 22 month old coming in and saying Daddy at nearly midnight :laugh:

I did also manage to grab a few games for the Mrs's/daughters as well for my other Steam account..

IMG_20201225_221236.jpg

Not so much for GTA but there was a few on there such as Lego Marvell and Plants Vs Zombies.. Might even introduce them to Serious Sam but we'll see :D Love those games!!

Think I've got a few more unexpected things on the way. Sadly missed out on a few other bits and pieces but otherwise we are good :) Got to be good now and start saving pennies!!

Apologies @Jetster didn't even look at the box! :laugh: :banghead::roll: Will you use it via PWM or fan controller of some sorts?
New motherboard as all 4 pin fan headers. So I took out the fractal design adjust 108 drive bay fan controller I was using.

Trying to clean up the look. No mechanical drives, no extra wires, still has a Blue ray drive because it still has the dive bay and I don't have the cover.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
91GB.... That would take me.... 2 or 3 days to download!! :laugh:
i have a cable connection, not much but enough for online activity including games, for download well ... i get a SMS from my phone service provider for "breaching fair use" because i use my "unlimited" contract to DL 4G+ :laugh: (around 3 time faster on USB 2.0 tethering) iirc that game would take me ~ 9hrs on my cable connection

although didn't get the SMS this time ... lucky me :D

bought a 512gb usD UHS-I C10 V30 A2 (100MB/s) card from PNY today to replace the same category 256gb Samsung EVO Plus

fun time : enabling "format as internal storage" that is hidden in the MIUI12 of my Note 9 Pro using activity launcher app
xmas gift from my parents ... my dad prefered the TCL10 Pro i had and they gave me the Note 9 Pro which is slightly larger and has ads (that i can opt out with ease ... but would drive my father to insanity if he had to bear with them :oops: he's less a techie than my mother or me ) i passed from 128gb internal (well more 384gb since that one could use uSd as internal added to the initial ) to 64gb but not a big loss since it has a SD720G instead of SD675, an IPS60hz flat screen instead of AMOLED60hz curved, same camera setup, plastic rim instead of aluminum but still back/front GG5, both phones are snappy enough and since my dad do not use his phone for games ... the 675 is enough for him :D

and that trick was needed ... 61gb used out of 64 ... (the TCL had the full 128gb occupied at 80%)


edit, finished and rofl now the phone report : 523.1gb occupied out of 1TB o_O more troubleshooting needed :laugh: but if it works fine, i can ignore that
edit 2, well all apps works fine and no more "running out of space warning" .... as some says "it just work" :rolleyes:

Ah that makes it nice and simple then :) I must admit, I'm a little unimpressed with the EK Vadar fans I bought... I can't get them to spin at the right speed, they are a little too noisy or not hardly spinning at all lol Which is kind of a good thing to test passive cooling since my 3900X runs still pretty well even with no radiator fans moving lol

I'm kinda tempted to grab a few more of the 3000rpm models fans (as I think they are cheaper than the 2000rpm model here for whatever reason) and swap them out on the radiator and see how I go. Aside from the extra static pressure and performance that they will give, I wonder if they will be a better fan to use on my radiators....

What is on the phone that you need that much storage?! :eek: Wow!!

Nice, I have 3 120 mm 3000 rpm fans on my current cpu cooler. Great fans with a wide rpm range. My fans can spin as low as 300 rpm and up to just below 3000 rpm.

And I am planning to use two 140 mm 3000 rpm fans for my next build on cpu cooler that will be a Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX BLACK cooler. That shut be great combo. Not for the noise sensitive off cause.

nono it's a phone indeed (well if i shoot 64MPix raw the file can get quite big .... although not needed ) and yes i do need a lot of storage for some games and also for my PSP roms since my phone double as my secondary (or primary rather ) PSP with the fantastic emulator PPSSPP and a Moga XP5-X+

For me , the only real logical successor to the 3300x is the 5800x . Sure maybe it doesn't warrant 4 times the price that I paid for the r3 , think of it as a birthday gift to self if you will.
Le: my 1st ever cpu purchased in wich the year of the purchase matches the one laser etched on the IHS.
I replaced my 3300X with a 5600X and have not regretted it.

It works a treat. It clocks higher with less vcore among other things like ipc gains and quite frankly as cool.

upgraded to a new platform yesterday coming from a i7 3770, h61 mobo to i5 7500 and h110 (just updated the specs on profile)

the main motive was to get usb / sata 3 and better bios functionality as my asus mobo was very limited with many basic features not available to set in bios
as the pc originally had only 8gb ram my brother bought another (almost identical) 8gb stick from Nehru Place for a very good price of ₹2000 (roughly 27$)

they were so cheap because we got it without gst being added
:D
, that's how we were able to grab such decent deal
now coming back why i said *almost identical, as you can see in Part No. there's a difference of 1 character but everything else including timings is same

doesn't matter much as it's running totally fine in dual channel mode, another surprising thing the few months old ram i have is manufactured this year itself (as you can see in speccy ss) while my new is back from last year, interesting stuff

I forgot to take the pic of the ram when it arrived but here is the reference

My other Christmas present to me arrived...



I got a new multimeter. The leads on my old cheapy Harbor Freight one broke a while ago, and I wanted to get a nicer one anyway.

It came with a thermal probe and some decent quality leads. I also ordered a hard case and extra leads for it.

It seems pretty similar to a Fluke DMM, but a fraction of the price. I'm sure Flukes are more accurate, but I'm sure my measurements being a few picovolts off won't be an issue. I'm a hobbyist, not a professional.

nooooow .... 91gb download waiting game START!
So that's a serial card? No media? I'd expect at least an SD card with the install files.
