  1. It does help that one of them offers money to beat the other Besides that, I've given up anyways cause it's impossible to beat @BWG straight up.
  2. Using magnets is a great idea. But maybe instead of using plastic to hold the magnet you could plastic weld in some high nuts and use a little bolt with the nut on the end to adjust it. The best plastic welding is actually melting a bit of the original plastic while applying the new material. Maybe even heating up more than just the part you are welding to help the proces a bit.
  3. 53.5mil 24h average, pretty crazy! Nice job, and the money is on its way I'm not sure if it's a good idea to do this every month, cause I know the payout was not enough to cover the costs! 'You' is Firedfly or the whole team?
  4. It's not easy to match the color and texture after fixing it. I did some plastic work years ago on one of my cases and it looked alright, but not perfect. At least you'll need to plastic weld it on the inside, and put the panel in a clamp or something to close the crack. I'm pretty sure glue will not hold on hard plastic like that. You will still see the crack afterwards. If there is not much texture on the panel it'll work in your favor, but looking at that last picture there is a bit of discoloring so you'll have to paint the whole panel or nothing.
  5. Let's hope this will work, fingers crossed!
  6. Looking good, though it's way too small for me Fingers crossed that everything works! Not easy to install something in there afterwards..
  7. Sadly she's keeping all the hardware..
  8. A Corsair Obsidian 1000D is on its way to me, the Fractal Design 7XL is not big enough for what I want. A few members had some advice on other big cases, but the square boxes are too wide to fit where I want the system to be. @BWG Ordered an EVGA 3090 NVlink bridge for me, I can't get that one over here. (And guess what that means.. ) Against all advice from @J7SC_Orion and all the recent complaints about issues with their blocks I was desperate enough to order a pair of EKWB Quantum FTW3 blocks and pre-ordered the active backplates. I really hope I'm lucky, fingers crossed..
  9. At this point I'm really starting to understand that frustration. And to be honest, my M40 has been 'parked' next to the workstation. Building and modifying is something I love, but figuring out all the errors etc is not my thing.
  10. Something is not right there, 2h 15m tpf is way too high! (1m 20s on a 3060)
  11. C2D was a few years before I started, which was 2009. So that sounds about right. The reason for the i7's was the bigadv units, that was a lot of fun and stress sometimes to finish the unit in time! I fired up all the hardware, and there is a 10 million ppd (negative) difference between yesterday and today thanks to the great units we've been given.
