    .... I'm oddly ok with this.

      She isn’t. 


    I don't know how I found this, but I like it.


    Why the fuck would you use handcuff keys to secure a gun?  This is from Santa Cruz?  Doesn't surprise me.


    That's actually a real neat little device. 

    I want one.

      To Kitchenaid or not to Kitchenaid?

      This is not a good idea

      @floofer You're right.  


      It's a great idea!

    Disliked due to the sheer clickbait.  If you wonder why I unclicked the bell icon on the LTT YouTube channel, this is a huge reason.

      @_StrikE_ I would argue that any title that's designed to generate clicks is considered clickbait, that's not nessacarlly bad, but I have a certain threshold, and when claims are false, or overly exaggerated, I tend to have a problem with it.

    2. _StrikE_


      I can see where your coming with this as well. I guess its all about perspective.

    3. lewdicrous


      It wasn'ta bad vid, but it was ruined by whoever chose that title.

  7. I was planning on making a status update, but these fourms are insisting on adding the last pic that I posted again.


    It's like sometimes when I add a pic to a post or status update, the "we saved what you were typing" feature (that's real helpful actually) happens by error, then it re loads the attached image, but I can't remove said image. 


    @colonel_mortis Why does this happen?  While it's amusing it's also annoying. 


    1. colonel_mortis


      It happens after you edit the status that owns the image. It has already been reported to IPS, and should be fixed next update (eta this summer).

    2. Skanky Sylveon

      Good to know that it's getting fixed.  Keep up the good work. 

  8. Interesting, the ASRock motherboard mesures tCTL instead of tDIE.  The difference being that tCTL is a 20 degree offset that's used for the "x" ryzen CPUs, so instead of ramping up at 60c, it decided to ramp up at 40c.


    I decided to meet the motherboard half way.



    At 45c, the fans jump up by 15%, then at 50c, it starts ramping up.  It levels out at 65c, then hits 100% at 75c.

    Proper soldering clip arms.  The light on the magnifying glass is nice.  It's USB though, so I will need to get a wall outlet to USB plug.

  10. So after my phone got repaired, I had some problems using flash at night.



    The LED would blind the camera. 

    I ended up finding out that there was a seal in between the LED and camera that prevented light from spilling into the lens from inside the phone itself, and when the seal was broken, light could spill into the lens.


    So, after fucking around for 3 hours with adhesive, and breaking the connector to the fingerprint scanner, I have this result. 



    Soooo much better.  I'm kinda pissed at myself for busting the finger print sensor, but I'm also mad at the phone's design.  It's held together with adhesive that I must heat up before I can remove the back.  This phone was not ment to be gotten into, and I had to do just that multiple times to make sure that the adhesive was making a good light seal while also not fucking with the focus of the camera.


    If the camera was slightly raised, or there was a groove in the back with a raised bump around the camera, this issue would have never surfaced, but we live in a disposable non repairable world.


    Also, the cable for the fingerprint sensor could have been attached to the back somehow, which would have prevented it's damage.


    End of rant.  All in all, I'm real happy that I fixed the camera flash.  I payed as much as I did for the phone primarily for the camera, so that component takes priority. 

    1. _StrikE_


      That wouldn't have flown that easily here, anyway its useless to talk about this anymore, since it seems that in your case especially there was no other proper alternatives. Lets just hope the phone will work well :p.

    2. Schnoz


      iFixit.com is a great site for this stuff. Sorry about the cable tho.

    3. Skanky Sylveon

      @_StrikE_ Burgerland can be ass backwards sometimes.  But yeah, I'm adjusting to the lack of fingerprint sensor, it was my primary way of unlocking my phone. 


      I was also told that they are sensitive to heat, so I could have killed it with the heat gun, which is nessacary for opening the phone in the first place.  I really wish the design was more repair friendly. 


      @Schnoz Aw shit!. I totally forgot about them.  I even use their toolkit on a daily basis.

  11. Well, the 3000 RPM fans dropped the temps by about 5 degrees, but they are insanely loud. 



    I tried making the fan curve less aggressive, but the industrial fans have a 6 pole motor instead of a 4 pole motor, the motor in the industrial fans don't undervolt nearly as well and they don't like going under 60% through PWM.  So I decided to give up on the overclock, but on the bright side, the modifications that I did allows the CPU to turbo for a much longer period of time. 


    Now for some pics.







    The new case allows for much better cable managment, this is probably the cleanest build that I have ever done.

    There are still a few things that I can do, I don't have a USB 3.1 header on my motherboard, so the front USB C connector is a dead port right now.  I can get a USB 3.1 header card though, I also have 2 USB 2 headers that's not getting used, as well as a USB 3 header, so I can get some PCIe USB brackets and take advantage of the 2 vertical PCIe slots that the case provides. 


    I can't do audio monitoring with the elgato plugged into the PCIe x1 slot, I'm guessing that it's a latency problem since that slot is going through the motherboard chipset, I can still record the audio, I just can't monitor it, so I'm going to get a long 3.5mm to RCA Jack and plug the monitor's headphone out into my mixer.  That would be a more elegant solution anyway. 


    As you can see, the top fan is right up next to the CPU cooler.  I actually had to position the fan so the blades didn't hit the heatsink or fan clip.  It's very effective at being a secondary CPU fan, so much that I removed the second fan on the CPU heatsink, so no more push/pull setup. 


    Removing the dust filters and spiderweb like plastic frame did help the case with dissipating more heat, but I no longer have any dust filters for the intake or top exhaust.  I'm not worried about the top exhaust, but I'm ordering 3 Silverstone magnetic dust filters, the mesh on those are incredibly fine, and they will make a good replacement that should perform better then the stock, thick ass dust filters. 

    1. _StrikE_


      Yup industrial fans are loud as hell... It was one of the main reasons i got rid of the FX build after i had fun overclocking it to damnation (well that and the cyclone forming in my room).

      I have it simply for the extra HDMI port, I have a quad monitor setup, and I wouldn't have enough ports for all of the monitors as well as a VR headset.  



      I currently don't have a headset, but I do intend to get one down the line.

      The GPU is passively cooled, only 1 slot in thickness, and has a VGA port on the off chance that I would need one.  I can't really ask for more then that.


      @_StrikE_ I may have use for the industrial fans for the greenhouse during the summer.  Only concern is those particular industrial fans aren't the IP67 ones, but they would most likely be on the top of the greenhouse venting out hot air anyway.

    3. _StrikE_


      I have an MSI GT710 as well, since Microsoft decided with the Creator's update they wouldn't be supporting my AMD HD 3200 onboard graphics card, it was for a Kitchen PC i made for my mom and myself (a PC for her to look up recipes if she wants, and for entertainment, since TV has gone to sh...).

    This is what happens when your OS decides to crash on an orcastra conductor.

      you know when windows bluescreens and the audio is stuck at the last note of whatever it was playing?


      kinda wanted that, LOL

    I'm getting offers like this all of a sudden from Amazon for quite a few items. 


    I wonder if it has something to do with my credit rising.

  18. Replaced the keyboard caps with something that has transparent letters.



    I'm going for a "Miami neon" kinda vibe.

    A few issues with a non standard layout keyboard, one is the 1.75u right shift, instead of the typical 2.75u.  But I found a few Taiwanese keycaps that have a 1.75u shift option.  Second is the 1.5u right ctrl and alt, I can find some ABS options, but no backlight PBT, although having some small gaps between the right ctrl and alt isn't the end of the world.  Next, as you can see, the keys like delete are at different rows, so they are raised differently, thus they look a bit silly, but in practice I actually like that.  You see, I use the delete key quite often,but putting it so close to the backspace makes it a bit easy to miss press, and that's not a key that you want to miss press, I found that the slightly shrunken angle makes it easier for me to not miss press.  Finally, the fucking 1u 0 key.  I have yet to find a proper replacement for that key short of buying a cheap mechanical calculator that has the double 0 option. 


    10 minutes in and I'm like "U FOOKING WOT M8".

    1. Tech_Dreamer


      yeah, it's surprisingly casual if you aren't familiar to this, TV contracts are like this,  you should look into the popular UK multi talent shows leaked contract , it had a huge binding clause on artists online activity similar to this JUST TO SHOW UP ON STAGE to simply perform, clauses included stuff like like owning their content past and future , literally giving them access to delete & edit their content without their consent each time. personal email access , also merch royalty etc. most of the contracts details are protected by some form of gag deal, you cannot show or expose details about the active contracts which you signed .

      Bookmarked sounds interesting lol.

  20. I turned off the bell icon on the LTT YouTube channel because I'm not that interested in Linus's content anymore, I turn on bell on the Gamers nexus channel, I still get notifications on my phone for Linus's content, but not Steve's. 


    GG YouTube, GG.

    1. imreloadin


      Of course YT is still going to shill for LTT, they make more money off of them xD

  21. Reminds me of when bloom was excessively added. The term "brown and bloom" was created for a reason. I remember when Nintendo decided to add bloom to their Wind Waker HD remake, and it kinda ruined the cel shaded look in some parts. Although I find the raytracing less annoying then excessive bloom in my opinion.

    Yugioh in a nutshell.
