    Installed a thing today. It's pretty badass if you ask me. Next step is a whole lot of lighting upgrades!

    I've recently discovered the "Frog Tape" brand bright green painter's tape. Having used a variety of different masks for home and automotive before I've never really looked at the Frog range because they've always been expensive and, hey, masking tape is masking tape right? But I've been super impressed with it when spraying some of my custom 3D printed PC parts, adhesion is great and the lines are crisper than anything I've ever used before. 
     
    But yeah, spraying 2K is one of the reasons I've invested in proper PPE. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Also very useful when machine cutting acrylic, metals, or anything else that tends to disperse a lot of nasty particles.

    Haha, got to use some kind of protection. I just had to do something outside in the rain after GF scratched the mirror on a wall inside a carpark... 🤔
     
    Result not good (masking tape got loose due to wet) but it will do for now until the weekend. I had to put up a makeshift tent so I didn't get water in the paint but still some of the masking tape got loose and I got some primer on an area I had masked... Well, at least it wont rust until I can fix it properly.

    I did one of my wing mirror covers in my garage using proper 2K. The finish was surprisingly good for a rattle can but I definitely felt a bit light headed afterwards...

    aDoomGuy reacted to Light-Yagami in What is the worst that can happen when OC memory??   
    The worst that can happen is that is doesn't boot with settings applied.
    2nd worst - it makes mistakes while the system is running, causing random bsod.
    3rd worst - it applies and works properly, but then just dies one day (if you push like.. 1.6v through it or something)
     
    Make small changes, run memory test, repeat. You'll get the most of it by tightening the timings. Pretty hard to do if you don't know what you're doing, so make sure you're well informed.

    So this 530 sold within a few hours of me prepping it last week, was collected by its new owners today, to say I'm jealous is putting it lightly. Lovely car and one of a handful of G31s painted in San Marino Blue and was the only one currently for sale. Being tempted by a couple white ones for sale as the next daily 👀

    aDoomGuy got a reaction from Nathraichean in Extremely drastic Ryzen temp spikes   
    75 is not a worry. Pretty normal as it has been explained. Temp spikes are common too, it's because something is making the CPU boost this may be background tasks by the way. AMD recommend to use Ryzen Balanced power plan with updated chipset driver to properly power manage the Ryzen CPU. However if you want even cooler and quieter operation you can use Power Saving plan when you are doing light tasks only. Worked fine with my 3600x but I stopped it and rather use a flat fan profile to stop fans from speeding up and down.
     
    Prime95 does not compare to real workloads. If your PC works fine in other applications I would not worry about any problems associated with P95. However you could run Memtest perhaps and check if your memory is stable if you have XMP/DOCP enabled. If you still worry about your CPU, run Cinebench R20 and see if the same behaviour occurs. Much more realistic workload and it also stresses the CPU.

    Use Ryzen Master to check temps. Most accurate for Ryzen CPU.

    aDoomGuy reacted to boggy77 in NEWBIE PROBLEM!!!!!!!   
    just ask the vendor before buying whether it suports 3000 out of the box (it should have a "3000 ready" sticker on the box).
    otherwise, all b450 max boards from msi support 3000 series out of the box.

    aDoomGuy got a reaction from milesuy in NVME M.2 vs SATA vs DRAM less SSD: What should I upgrade to?   
    Depends what you are doing. If you load up Windows and then a game you won't notice it much but if you copy files to it then you will see it's performance crawl. That's what I experienced with my Kingston A400 anyway.

    More related to my R33 recently. 
     
    Drained out the coolant and filled with coolant flush & demineralized water to flush the system in intacipation of fitting the new alloy radiator. 
     
    Replaced the manual shifter surround with a brand new (old stock) one
     

     
    Pulled out the old washer bottle and replaced with a washer bottle + oil catch combo. Fitted with new OEM washer pumps, and used a GT-R mounting bracket slightly customised to mount it into the GTS-T. When I get to doing the engine covers im going to fit AN fittings, and will run some black braided tubes instead
     

     
    Next though is to remove the brake calipers and pull them apart to send them off for media blasting & powder coating. 
    I have a full rebuild kit, new brake rotors, performance pads and braided brake lines to go in once they come back.

    you can't have manual overclock and boost at the same time.
