    My most recent project , I assembled my first mechanical keyboard.  Used Invyr Holy Panda switches, DZ60 PCB, and a powder coated billet aluminum case. Absolute joy to type on, the feel is amazing. Not hot swap PCB, I hand soldered every key on the PCB. Learned a lot in the process.

    My other project, getting my Evo X back in road worthy condition (from the previous owner), is also coming along nicely. Last weekend I taught myself how to work on brembo brakes changing out fresh brake rotors and performance brake pads. Had an issue with the front right brake squeaking after install but after doing all 4 rotors, I started the first rotor taking around 2 hours to figure out how to properly disassemble/reassemble it, taking apart the front right rotor again I had it apart and back together and not squeaking in under 20 minutes. OEM parts with labor at a dealer would put this job around $2500-3000 according to forums. I put on a better set than OEM and did it for $490 in parts and a long weekend. And now If I ever need to work on Brembos again I know exactly what to do. When my friends ask how I afford all my nice things, this is a big reason why. Same things applies to pretty much everything, and with me loving to learn new things, I've saved myself thousands across all my hobbies while vastly improving my knowledge.

    To me there is simply nothing more satisfying than putting something together yourself, saving a ton of money, and then enjoying the fruits of your own labor. Whether that's building a computer, keyboard, or car.

    My most recent project:

     
    I bought and currently repairing a 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR. Has about $8000 on aftermarket parts on it. I learned an incredible amount about the mazdaspeed platform when I bought and fixed a salvage 2011 speed3 last year (which is now pretty modified and quite fast), and now in the same way Im learning so much about how Mitsubishis go together.
     
    Most notable fix this thing needs is it had an impact in the front left which broke the bumper, fender, and the bracket responsible for aligning the bracket. It was also pretty filthy inside but I've already done a super clean of the interior.
     
    The cost of Evo parts makes me miss computers being my main hobby lol

    Been overclocking my RAM and my 2600x in my ultra small form factor PC (Pics coming soon). Settled on my clockspeeds:
    CPU: Using Precision Boost PPT: 150 TDC: 114 EDC:168 averaging around 4.1ghz
    GPU: +80core, +400 mem
    RAM: DDR4 OC to 3466mhz, 1.5V, heavily tweaked timings.

     
    an additional fan is coming that could significantly improve my CPU temps and could bump up the CPUs clocks a little more in a few days, and I was to redo my RGB strips wiring, and I'll probably have gotten my Vega 56 to pair with the 2600x instead of a 1070.
     
     
     
     
    Here is the same test but with my ryzen 1700x from last week (incidental GPU):
    (CPU 3.95@1.425v)(GPU +95 core, +485 mem)(DDR4-2400-no_tweaks)

     
    On cinbench I went from single-core score of 148 to 168 with my OC. My 1700x scores 140 in single-thread. We see the superior single-threaded performance on the 2600x translates into a higher combined score although at a lower physics score.
