    I had managed to get my monitor up to 85Hz before it said 'Out of range' when trying 90Hz, this is coming from the 75Hz recommended factory refresh rate. I see virtually no differnece in 75Hz vs 85Hz but that's probably because I have granny reaction speed.
     
    The jump from 60Hz to 75Hz was more potent than 75Hz to 85Hz. The display doesn't seem to get damaged or have noticeable artifacting with 85Hz which is nice. Despite being a 5ms response rate monitor, there's very little blurring/ghosting, and my input still feel sharp, as it should since it should feel inperceivable.
     
    Here's some Counter-Strike gameplay in a 25FPS GIF slowed down to 0.5x to show how slow my reaction speed is, and how unnecessary high refresh rates would be for an absolute slowpoke like me. Crosshair placement on point though.

    Got a new monitor arm for my setup! Took me a good few hours to set up, but I made sure to get the arm exactly right so I wouldn't have to move it in any way after I'm done setting it all up.
     
    I'm happy with how much height and cleanliness I've gained from going with a monitor arm, it's a lot cleaner to look at compared to the stock monitor stand that was becoming distracting to look at.

    I've been hooked to Animal Crossing: New Horizons lately. I had it on preorder for the longest time, and it was actually solely this game that was my original intention for buying a Nintendo Switch.
    I'll finally rack up heavy hours on my Nintendo Switch, I'm already around 15 hours down into Animal Crossing since the game came out on the 20th.

    Early days, but I dare say I prefer the NovelKeys Creams. They sound much deeper than my Tealios, and the extra bit of weight needed to actuate as well as bottom-out is just the right amount of added weight that I can appreciate how smooth the lube job is, and thus the smoothness.
     
    The Creams are also far more stable in terms of wobble than the Tealios, I get why switch film exists now, because the Tealios felt wobbly as hell compared to my now-lubed NovelKeys Creams.
     
    The Tealios still have that "I'm a rich bitch living in Los Angeles, CA, I make six-figures per year, I wear Versace, and I own three Chihuahuas" aesthetic to them though, they look mega rich compared to the Creams which look like vanilla ice cream.
