It's not going in my computer until the replacement fan arrives.
If you have a 92mm fan that has some decent RPMs you could use metal tape to mount it to the opening and blow air into the card. You'll then be able to use it until you get a replacement fan..

I have a 90mm fan but it's permanently mounted to the case of my P3 box (too many hex nuts in a small space).
I have an 80mm fan somewhere, but I don't have any metal tape (strongest I've got is packing tape)...

Harbor Freight. It's like $4 a roll. But that 80mm fan needs to be at least 2500rpm to provide proper cooling.

Definitely not 2500 RPM. I do have a 90mm delta fan that I could use, BUT it can easily blow over its own weight and I don't have enough space between my two cards to hold it anyway (it's about 45mm thick).

This;

There is also a variety with glass fiber cloth which is even more durable;

Then there is the tin variety;

All of these are very durable when used properly. The adhesive doesn't break down like duct-tape and yet allows for easy removal. Great stuff for mounting fans in a temp location.

Is this the showoff your hardware (recent) purchase thread?

OK then,

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooo! :peace:

4800Mhz 17 17 37 :clap:

What an amazing CPU IMC at only $300, the i5 11600K. And the M13A mobo - not too shabby either.

I like how you caught the button lighting up the Royal..

She is schmexy..

I almost feel bad for having mine in a case :D

If you weren't looking there is a chance I might touch that thing inappropriately..

Edit:

Wait a minute..

Why do I see 1.4v+ but yet you are dropping your clocks..

WHY?

:laugh:
CPUZ is showing Intel SpeedStep enabled, so the 11600K drops down to 800Mhz when idle. My Vcore is actually way up at 1.500v for testing new OC values.

Looks like my Daily OC is going to be somewhere around 5.3Ghz CPU and 4600Mhz 17 17 37, not 4800. :rolleyes:

Cuz my DDR4 is a Coffee Lake kit so yea. Not certain I want to buy a new DDR4 RKL kit for 200Mhz.

This mem kit will also do 5000Mhz - if timings are loosened up quite a bit - here's a 1st run. Could tighten up these timings if I wanted to spend a few hours on it - but I don't. lol :p

I am right!! :laugh:

Please forgive the post, but I don't get notifications of all the other hardware everyone else is buying if I don't seem to post in here and sad I'm not buying a thing!! :laugh:
Speaking of which (ignore the white balance, it's silver silver):

Came as an extra with an amplituner so that I could plug in my old speakers. Paid something around 40€ total for both. Sadly tape deck will probably end up in storage as I don't use tapes anymore.

But there's something else coming soon that will be a good match for the amplituner. Stay tuned.

My "old faithful" G500 mouse died Friday night. Went to BB to get a new mouse, and ended up getting a new Keyboard as well.

The G502 Lightspeed has a much better scroll wheel, as they rubberised. Had a cheaper G502 a while back which I really didn't like the slippery metal wheel on.
Otherwise I can't really tell any difference, except the wireless vs wired mode.
Stupid price difference though.

Enjoy it. Just as I will enjoy my two chips. 5600X and 5950X.

Also and update on my own 2 pc's in 1 case project. Seems to be very near now. If all goes well, I will reseive the last shipment this week and maybe begin building next week. I hope there will be no more delays now. I am sick and tired of the waiting.

I have all the components I wanted accept those darn gpu's. It's a nightmare to get what I want in the current market. So there will be no rtx 3060 TI or 3080 or ti. But I managed to grab a gtx 1050 ti and a gtx 1660 super. Both brand new with full warranty. But no rtx on this time sadly. In sted I burned some more money on storage give the risk of shortage of storage do to That new ghia coin and dit not want to risk missing out on storage before pricing and available becomes horrible there as well and some more on a new desk and loudspeaker system.

So yeah it will be a complete new build from top to tow. I will only temporarily use my old monitor as a second screen until my economy allows for a second monitor and re use my current mouse (Logitech G903 lightspeed) as that is not even 1 years old yet. Else everything else will be replaced with new stuff and I am excited as h**l. It's not every day I build a new system and deffently not a build to around 8000 USD in total with danish taxes. This also means there will not be money for much fun this summer. But you have to offer one thing to get another thing.
