  1. I tried this the other day and almost set my shirt on fire:

    How to make smoke disappear:

    You will need one jar of smoke (put a burning piece of paper in and put the lid on) and several capfuls of rubbing alcohol.

     

    Simply put the alcohol in very quickly and close the lid. When you're ready, open the lid and light it on fire. There will be a huge orange flame (very brief) and the smoke and alcohol will completely disappear. This reaction is incredibly exothermic and the jar may get too hot to touch.

      burning alcohol is actually very dangerous during the daytime. the blue flames are very hard to see.

  3. This is really exciting! My new fans arrived today (Arctic P12 PWM PST). But it's not as simple a story as swapping out the fans. Stick with me for a bit...

     

    A bit of background first: My rig has 5 120mm fans (2 front intake, 2 CPU top exhaust, 1 rear exhaust). The front two are Rosewill fans from my previous case, the top ones are Cooler Master Air Balance 120s that came with my MasterLiquid 240, and the rear is a Cougar fan rated at 12V 0.3 A, the rest are rated at 12V 0.16A. Lately, I've been getting some noise issues from a dying bearing with the rearmost top exhaust fan (one of the Cooler Master ones). To find a replacement, I've always been into air pressure fans, since two need to pull through an air filter while two more have to push through a radiator.

     

    So anyways, the fans arrived today, I popped the rig open, and removed the old fans. That was easy.

     

    I have also lately been hitting 70 C temps on my AIO under load, so I pulled the MasterLiquid 240 off.

     

    Big. Mistake.

     

    So, it turns out that Arctic Silver 5 (different company from the one that makes MX-4 and my current fans) is literal garbage. That stuff dried and turned into a strong glue. When the waterblock came out, the Ryzen 5 2600 came out too.

     

    That thing was stuck on there. I could not pry it off. This has happened once before to me with an old PGA478 Pentium 4. After bending back two or three bent pins, I used the crowbar of a hammer to remove the chip. I then put the CPU carefully back in its socket (it fit somehow), cleaned both surfaces with an alcohol pad, then applied more MX-4 than needed in the shape of a penis. I also vaccumed out the rad fins, then installed the new fans. So, Arctic markets these fans as having PST (Power-Sharing Technology), where each fan has an extra 4-pin female fan connector that can be used power another fan. This means you can daisy-chain fans to a single fan header. This eliminated my need for a fan splitter. The rear and top fans are daisy-chained to one fan header, and the front two fans are connected to another. This thing is now exceptionally quiet. I had no idea that the AIO fans were that loud. The thing is now damn near inaudible under idle. Thanks for sticking with me for this story.

     

    Conclusion? Be careful when removing CPU coolers from chips with crap thermal paste, and buy Arctic P12 fans because they're great.

  9. Just curious (again...), describe your body type or what you look like.

     

    Me: Bayonetta legs, at least noticeably longer than most other people my height, but can barely complete the mile run in the required time. Not exactly the thinnest person ever, but not a chungus (around the body type that looks nice in a wetsuit). Classic Asian eyes (will become slits if I smile). Constantly worn-down nails (from biting and other things) and usually seen unconscious in bed among mountains of old electronics.

  10. As I've said before, I'm not religious, but:

     

    A religious man's boat sinks and he is stuck in a life raft. He prays for some time. A fishing boat comes by and offers to pick him up. He declines and says "God will save me."

     

    Then a cruise liner arrives and offers to rescue him. He declines and says "God will save me."

     

    Then one of the largest destroyers in the US Navy, the USS Zumwalt, offers to rescue himi. He declines and says "God will save me."

     

    Instead of being saved by God, he dies and is sent to heaven. He asks God why He didn't save him. God replies, "I tried! I sent you a fishing boat, a cruise liner, and a Navy destroyer!

     

     

    Next one:

     

    A child murders his parents and when brought to trial he pleads "Please have mercy on me, I'm an orphan!"

      If u think 80s music sucks watch Ghostbusters. Theme song is still amazing. 

  23. So. I found my Xbox 360. Badly beat up, but after popping it open and adding heatsinks to the southbridge, HANA chip, and CPU VRM, it actually still works. Somehow. That thing's a tank. It's the 360 S by the way, 250 GB model. The layout of that cooler looks almost like a Wraith Stealth cooler with a copper core. It's also a freakin' furnace even at idle, so I put a 120mm fan succing the hot air out of the CPU/GPU exhaust and two fans (80mm Rosewill, 80mm Intel stock cooler) blowing air downwards from the top into the console.

    "My great-grandfather's child was tough. Every day, he had to be up at the crack of dawn, endlessly toiling through the day in coal mines. Now mines back them were extremely dangerous, and many died when the roof collapsed or simply dropped dead from the lack of oxygen. He--"
