  1. ...wonder if Chia mining farming will do the expected - lower regular available supply and raise cost for big HDDs. On that...
  2. ...air-cooled system, eh ? Both Amazon and AliExpress sell these bigger copper fin 'chunks', sometimes associated with audio amplifiers...I made my own though out of multiple M.2 heat sinks, but next time, I might go for those bigger amp copper fin setups and cut it to size, along with some Thermalright pads
  3. ...fair enough, but I have had excellent quality experience with various TT items. Also, everybody seems to be copying everybody else (at least these days) in the case world...ie. Coolermaster's new Masterframe 700 is very TT Core P_ish, right down to the marketing, all the while claiming it to be 'new and different' (check TT Core P7...) ...as for Mr. Dremel, when I got the TT Core P5 a few years back, I wanted to find a way to mount 5x thick 360 rads and 4x free-standing D5s w/o showing much of it...the Dremel was invaluable for that. What is more, the TT Core P8 is related to th
  4. ...well thank you - did the Dremel thing to a brand new TT Core P5 as well; nothing is safe around here from my Dremel also: Nice Tesla GPU you got there / are the red lights a reflection, or is there RGB in there ?
  5. ...those Dremel above will come in handy for mods for dual motherboards for this TT Core P8 I just picked up today at a great price locally (never mind the great weight of 40 lbs ) ..I already have a TT Core P5 (since late '18) and really like it.
  6. ...they 3090 Aorus Extreme Waterforce models only have 2x 8 pin, while the air-cooled Aorus Extreme 3090 has 3x 8 Pin and higher clocks...what a weird world we live in. Asus is doing the same thing this time around.
  7. ...on .50 caliber: A while back, we went to a shooting range here to sight and dial in a new riflescope for deer hunting ...the range has an uphill segment with marked paper targets at 25 yards, 50 yards, 75 yards...all the way to 300 yards... ...next to our shooting slot, there was a fellow I had noticed before in the parking lot; he had a .50 caliber and a BIG new military scope...but all he ever shot at with his .50 caliber and military scope was the 25 yard target...which would flutter away anyway because of air pressure, no matter by how far he missed... ...now ba
  8. I've got 2x Aorus Xtr 2080 Ti Waterforce WB since December '18 - no problems with them at all re. w-cooling quality. I wonder if this 6900 XT version will have more than just 2x 8 pin PCIe...time will tell...
  9. ...and depending how 'good' NVidia's mining hash rate limiter works out (this time around looks to be more serious), used 3080 and 3090 prices could shoot up even more at eBay etc..that is because of running 'updates' planned for 3080s and 3090s that incorporate said 'mining limiter' (Igor's lab had a recent YT vid on it, but only in German)
  10. ...you forgot the 'trained' bears , the raccoon and the Vietnamese pig (the latter not really Canadian, but why not, eh ?). This is an older (true) story; underlying events took place in my home province of British Columbia....
  11. ...believe it or not, I actually thought about C-clamps for real (but dismissed that idea - for now). However, I got some custom Strix backplates this could mount to, though I would prefer direct to back VRAM (and back VRM) mounting with only one layer of 0.5 mm Thermalright pads, if possible
  12. ...had a nice delivery late yesterday ...Phanteks G30 Strix block is heavy; about 2.9 lbs just by itself, in part because it has a 6 mm copper coldplate . Quality seems very good... I also found a machine shop that could 'mill' the current 'outgoing' block down; if I can figure out how to attach it - it would make a great GDDR6X VRAM cooler for the back
