  1. Had some fun today


    adventures of the 2cyl SJ.
    started it up this morning, started fine, but struggled to move under it's own power to get out of the shed. pulled the spark plugs, the 2 in the middle were very sooty so I wiped them a little, shoved them back in, reseated the leads. checked the distributer, it was clean inside. started it back up, let it get to temperature and gave it a partial italian tune up and it's running smoother than it ever was before
    even while it was warm it was idling high, so I'm thinking that the carb needs adjustment. Tried to find the idle screw, found one that affected the amount of throttle/choke at idle, tried to adjust that but it didn't do much. did make it idle lower but only when you pushed the throttle back. It's sticking somewhere and not going all the way to the bottom so when you put your foot down it doesn't get back to fully off and the lower speed idle. So that screw hasn't done much for us.
    Think the carb needs cleaned up and set properly.
    with that much soot I'd imagine that it had lost over half of it's 40 horses, probably better now, but not done yet
    the heater is still bangin' and it worked great towing a trailer full of fencing materials
    all is well
    TL:DR: Running rich, too much soot everywhere, needed italian tune up. Also carb adjustment. Back to 4 cylinders now.
  2. "did" my cable management



    1. Dabombinable


      TBH, unless you close the box cable management really doesn't matter-it may even help prevent dust having a bit of a mess.

    2. bear-in-the-air


      the box lives closed. As referenced by the path of dust, the air flows from the fan on the left, over the drives and out the psu.

  3. RIP discord. I'm bored, entertain me.

      Can't a bear dream? is sky the only limit?

      you make a good point.

    Hey, My parents still use one of those fine!
  5. Mechanical keyboards are the tits.

    Just got a cheap blue clone keyboard and it's pretty great to type on.

      Outemo and Gateron are an awesome thing for the PC gamer/typist/whatever on a budget. You really dont have to go Cherry MX for the full mechanical experience.

      Personally I prefer Gateron's Blue switches over Cherry's, but they are just not as common on boards with RGB LEDs and such/

    2. bear-in-the-air


      this was the cheapest blue switch keyboard with a numpad I could find. That and I was going for the non gamer aesthetic

  6. made a slight gain, ignore my last one 5.08ghz, 1.6925v the most I could get. VRMS can't handle anything more and to get this to begin with I had to add a server 120mm fan at about 4000rpm cooling my VRM
  7. I think I own one of, if not the fastest fx-4170. 5ghz (1.65v)

      iirc I got 110cb single threaded. Bulldozer was fucking stupid but I'm doing what I can on it because I got the board free.

      Image result for it's something

      Still amazed that your getting it to 5GHz. Then again it is only 2 modules, and I was able to get my Core 2 Duo E8500 to 4GHz on my Asus P5K VM (recently found the SS from the burn test I did-I'd only just gotten my GXT 970 and picked up the C2D for $5 at a local store). 3 phase VRM with no cooling......which could handle a Xeon X5450 at no higher than 3.2GHz.
      C2D OC Burn test




      BTW, I did not expect to find it in an article-it never came up the last few dozen times I searched google for info.


    4. bear-in-the-air


      oh I could get it so much further than 5g if I had a decent board. As I mentioned due to it being only a quad core it doesn't run all that hot, just my board is shite and iirc doesn't even offically support the 8core chips.

  8. Getting a new chip for my board, going from 4(2) to 6(3) cores so why not push my current chip 1.6525v, max temp of 60c(EDIT: on air), 5ghz. Air cooled. GPU is a 290x but I haven't yet installed drivers so it's not showing up

    PC causing 2.4g wifi interference.

    I figured out what was causing the issue, it was my cheap usb3 hub

    PC causing 2.4g wifi interference.

    I figured as much. Unfortunately the budget doesn't allow it so I got a usb extention and have moved the wifi adapter away from my pc and it seems to be working

    On what? if it's the router then that's not the problem It's as soon as the desktop powers on and it happens with the adapter removed.

    A newer tplink and an older once with that really common cheap chipset. Both have the issue. Channels don't make a difference, it's not my wireless adapter causing the issue
