    It's a pretty tight fit. 

     
    Here's where I would like to mount it.  I got some cheaper meters to compare and they have surface mounted wires instead of the through hole wiring that the more expensive ones have.  Through holes tend to be far more durable, so that's what I'm going for.
     
    Instead of the blue one that I have, I think that I'm going to get yellow. 

     
    The yellow one that I have in person is more of an orangeish amber, and that's good to stand out on the blue due to how complementary colors work.

    So. I'm using my laptop on a 3/4-inch thick wooden desk at math class right now.
     
    I just felt the bottom of the desk. It's very warm.
     
    I put my laptop on this table 20 minutes ago.
     
    In 20 minutes, my laptop got so hot the bottom of the desk warmed up.

    Hi all,
     
    I'm going to be gone for the next two weeks because I'll be in Europe (London/Paris) on a trip. First time I've left the country in years. I'll try to find a computer ther so I can keep posting, but no guarantees, since my Huawei M8 Nein took an unexpected dive.
     
    I'll try to upload as many pics as possible.

    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.

    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.
