  1. Hi All, Got a bit of a strange issue which appears at random times. The computer will shut down suddenly with no blue screen. It has done this while completely idle, while I have been at lunch and once during a game of Apex. There is no faults or errors within event viewer before either. The system from there will not boot, the PSU makes its normal click sound when the power button is pressed, the fans spin once and the motherboard shows 00 before turning off, this is under a second of power and then off again. I cannot get it to boot after this unless I pull the power cable out
  2. Lubing the stems makes a big difference in feel, my Yellows and Ambers both feel much smoother and quieter after lubing them. If I even get some browns I am going to be sure to lube them up too!
  3. The lube on alps is quite a long lasting lube however you could open them all up and give the sliders a lube as it will make no difference to the overall tactility or click. Might help the switch out with becoming smoother. However I have had some NOS yellows which were just scratchy straight away. It might just be bad consistency...
  4. Restoring alps only really goes so far. Once dust has gotten in then it usually does unrepairable damage to the sliders and they just remain scratchy. Which Alps are these? Blues, Ambers or SMK? The mod looks ace though, very clean wiring!
  5. One of our keyboard makers in the UK made this a while back... Its called the Hyper7 and he brought it to our last keyboard meetup. The thing is a monster! All the keys at the top I believe are 2u caps with two switches underneath. So in theory you could program each switch individually if you wanted even more macros!
  6. Just as an update, I decided to get a really small CPU cooler from Silverstone. Its one that they market as a upgrade to the stock Intel cooler. However it is running whisper silent now. The only thing that is actually making noise in the whole machine is now the power supplies fan...
  7. Hi All, I am putting together a PFSense router together. I have got a Intel 4130t which I am using as the processor. This processor has a thermal disopation of just 35w! The whole system is going into a 1u server case which will eventually be rack mounted along with my NAS. This rack will be on the other side of the room in my office. I bought one of these 1u turbine style fans to go into the system and it is kicking out a lot of noise! So I would like to find out if I could buy a Noctua L-9i cooler, take the fan off and run it entirely passive. When I mean entirely passive I mean; no
  8. The new block arrived earlier this morning and I got to work with swapping everything over. I needed to swap to the 2011v3 jet plate and insert for optimal cooling. I gave it a quick leak test however the block was in way better condition than my old one. I then applied the liquid metal to both the CPU and CPU block and strapped it down. Put the tubing back together made sure everything was fastened down! Time to fill the loop again! However this time, everything went smoothly. After about 30 mins the system was full, leak testing and the bubbles were coming out thick and fast! After ano
  9. Hey All, So I have had the 5930k a while now and I have used Liquid metal thermal compound to get the best cooling possible along side my custom watercooling loop, however I have been suspecting that it wasnt making the best contact as the temps weren't inline with what others were getting. So I drained the loop and pulled the waterblock up to find this: Not ideal, I know... It was either the CPU or the waterblock which was causing the poor contact. I partially suspected it to be the CPU as Intel have soldered their IHS's to the processor which usually cause bulges and
  10. I take it that you are taking the stems/ top housings out and then ultrasonic cleaning? If you are doing that, I suggest to getting some new Alps springs from SPRiT!
  11. Looks pretty nice! Any shots of the whole board?
  12. Love the styling of the Mira, really clean. My friend has one and the build quality is exceptional! The only thing that lets it down for me is the logo above the arrow cluster. Just cant stand that bit... Nice caps though too!
  13. Got the chance to review the Varmilo MA105C with their new Contactless switches; the 'Sakura' pink EC switches. My review can be found here: https://caps-unlocked.com/blog/mathews-reviews-varmilo-ma105c/ I also posted my review in the members review section but it felt more fitting I also post it in here
  14. I am using the same springs in both. SPRiT Gold 72g springs which have been lubed. The stems in both switches have also been lubed.
  15. You would think that, however its actually the opposite. The stem on a cherry clear is very round in comparison to the Zealio stem. You get a much bigger bump but the switch feels way scratchier. I have Clears in Zealio housings on my Clueboard. Also the stems are slightly wobbly in these as Zealio housings are basically a gateron top with a custom bottom and Gaterons are known for beeing wobbly.
