Well when I was installing my new NVME drive. Like a dufus I allowed a drop of coolant to escape my quick connect. I guess it dropped on my RAM because I no longer can get 3600 but only 2400. I have had these in my save for later card on Newegg for months. I paid just under $300 for these but they will be the last set of DDR4 RAM that I will buy.
Have you tried a soft toothbrush, 90%+ IPA and an air blower of some kind to clean it all out? As long as the liquid hasn't been there long, you should be able to clean that up quickly and with no lasting effects.

Gunna say go try that yourself, as i've lost terabytes of data do someone with a f*cking phones magnetic case being sat on top of it
I have, never had any ill effects. Not saying it can't happen though, just that it's unlikely if you keep them away from the drives. I feel for you on the data loss though. That really sucks. Been there, which is why I'm so ardent about doing backups.

AMD released new chipset drivers today with mentions of a BSOD fix in W11 and the new CPU's
+200 vs +0 obviously requires different voltage offsets, especially at lower clocks/idle

Installed them right after changing the CPU, will experiment a bit today with the CO curve (currently -10 and +100 offet, the top examples seem to do -25 and +200 offset when just sticking to the PBO) and see if i get any more crashes or it might have been a TPM issue.

Worked for 5 hours of benchmarking, memtesting, gaming and desktop use yesterday since the last crash, so seems to be fine now with the current settings.
Still "need" to beat the Speed Way and Port Royale scores from the 7600X :laugh:

My backup drive is what was erased, as i was restoring from them. Now ex-wife sat her phone on top of the PC, which erased the HDD In the dock on the top caddy as i was restoring lost photos of our sons birth (well, of him after - not the actual process)
Fantastic design feature for the PC case, but nothing beats stupidity

I wouldn't go so far as to call it stupidity. Simple innocent mistake. I empathize with the headache and trouble it likely caused. :toast:

I know right?! They are listed at 135 up here.. I can’t remember what I actually paid for original FC140 at launch, probably like 150cad.. at least.. since it came from China.

This time I will be more careful with my apparent super strength :D

Edit:

I was going to pull the crossbar off of PA120 to try on my FC140, but nah. It is too nice of a little cooler to start hacking up :)

The white and black versions of anything Thermalright are always expensive as hell on Amazon. Thanks for letting us know where to get that gud price ;)

Well it's Black Friday. I have a request for a Gaming PC. They don't want AM5 or Intel. I was just browsing around Newegg and snagged this for $219 CAD. This is the most extreme B550 board that is truly like the B450 E. Even comes with an Expansion card for some RAID 0 loving. It is basically $200 off.

our sons birth (well, of him after - not the actual process)

Well this is wildly off topic, but there were a bunch of friends over at some others friends place after their daughter was born. After dinner and the gawking at the baby we just sat around talking, and the new mother asks "So, would you like to see the video?" and I said "ABSOLUTELY NOT" but everyone else said "Oh yes that would be lovely" and so we did watch it. It wasn't exactly shot from front row so to speak, but still one of the more surreal moments in my life.

Much wow, such light, so bright, wow tech light! (well it's USB .... i like it!)
Isn't the longevity a problem with these lithium-based stop lights? I mean, how many years it will last before the battery can't hold any more charge?

given the price (less than 15chf) and the fact that i already got used to change accu on these kind of little buggers (well softpack accu aren't exactly cheaper ) i wouldn't worry, plus the last one of that kind did last me 10yrs

the front light tho use 2 leds and 2 CR2032 (still have 10 left plus i also need them for a cap that has 2 led in it :laugh: why have to choose between a cap and a headlight when you can have both )

cheap, but reliable enough brand, i also have 2 1.2v Varta AAA accu aside, the "normal" batteries are usually backup

well i bought the CR2032 recently :D

Ordered a budget Leven JS600 4TB SATA SSD, won't see it till I get back to my home country in February. I jumped on it because it was cheap, cheapest deal for a 4TB SATA SSD I've seen in a while, it cost me ~212USD. Dunno if this is a good price for a 4TB SATA SSD, but it's from Taiwan, no China (seen so many 'iffy' China Made SSDs that I ain't too sure about))/ I think guru3d did a review of the 2TB JS600, it seems to perform as expected.

That is a GREAT price for 4TB of NAND.
