  1. It’s been done on this forum to quite good quality. Somewhere in the build logs
  2. It does not. I think there is just some confusion here on your side with some plumbing terminology, and we should just leave it there.
  3. You went on a right tangent there, but yes, as I mentioned above prior to UNC some photography associations made recommendations with BSW screws, which stand for British Standard Whitworth. But nothing again, nothing on fips
  4. I have 2x Strix and quite happy with them, I don't think they have dual bios (more of an EVGA feature iirc). From the two, I think the strix -> EVGA -> Msi are my preference order
  5. Try after having hte PC on for a while, and then twist before pulling (heat and torsion to loosen the thermal paste). You should prepare for the fact that the CPU may pull out together with the cooler and so make sure you don't smash the pins accidentally.
  6. Prior to UNC, some associations recommended BSW as the standard, perhaps you are thinking of this. However BSW and UNC are close enough that you can actually use a UNC screw into a BSW standard mount. And just for the record, even in the 1987 standard (and also in the 1973 edition), the threading was already specified as 1/4-20 UNC and 3/8-16 UNC. https://cdn.standards.iteh.ai/samples/5836/d4306c68270e476eaea3fba711a65dea/ISO-1222-1987.pdf
  7. The tripod camera connection has an ISO standard 1222:2010 https://www.iso.org/standard/55918.html and is defined at 1/4-20 UNC or in some cases 3/8-16 UNC. Tripod-camera mounts have been largely standardized towards the Arca-Swiss format and is not camera brand specific (i.e. Canon cameras do not need a special plate or screw vs Nikon or Sony). I could only find FIP mentioned in the context of piping and plumbing, so this may not be relevant for cameras, at least for the last 20 years or so.
  8. Toshiba L750 only has USB 2.0 ports http://content.etilize.com/Manufacturer-Brochure/1022918157.pdf /thread
  9. I have always been adamant that radiators should be on exhaust even at the “cost” of positive pressure.
  10. As a funny case study: here are the effects of having an entire fly between the lens elements. F/13 https://petapixel.com/2019/04/11/the-mystery-of-the-fly-in-the-2100-weathersealed-lens/
  11. As long as you can tell in a blind A-B comparison for a day-to-day scenario, then guess it may make sense for some. Otherwise its just bias through knowing it is 4K and knowing that money was spent to get this functionality.
  12. Just like getting a 4K 13" laptop is kinda pointless in my opinion, then same is true for phones.
  13. I'm so confused, why would plastidipping have anything to do with what liquid you put through the radiator? Water doesn't flow through the fins anyway, but the plastidip should only be on the outside and not the inside of the radiator....Either way, acid washing is probably not necessary unless if you picked it out of a dumpster, and citric acid is probably not strong enough anyway.
  14. Yes, there is a difference as the additives they use are different. Most prominent differences are whether Ethylene/Propylene glycol is the primary biocidal component or not. You can see my thread for some more information. Best is not a term I would say applies to coolants though.
