    HM-2 got a reaction from Demonic Donut in How long should I watch the spray paint dry?   
    I would leave the full 24, or 12 at a minimum. "Handleable" doesn't mean you aren't going to be left with some nasty marring of the surface finish from handling.

    HM-2 got a reaction from fonzz1e in custom loop more worth it than a hybrid cooler?   
    Changing the case for something less likely to choke airflow seems like the best solution.

    A Corsair 1000D will fit 4 2-slot GPUs. I reckon with a suitable motherboard you could do up to 6 if you were water cooling.

    Ok ok, if you really wanna know...
    You wont like it much anyway. 😄
     
    (timecoded so you can hear the exact song (its 2+hour livestream DJ-set)
     
    I do like hardcore (what this generally is called) its the only music thing we have going for our country. All the others we just copied.
    This is our own, altho Germany tries to claim it. They are just a bigger country, making people think it started there, which is incorrect.
    But dont believe me tho, im higly biased. Being an impressionable 12 year old when this all started. 😄  Damn almost 30 damn years ago...

    Not much progress on this. Motherboard had arrived, got a decent deal on both an X570S Aorus Pro and a 5900X. The first has turned up but no sign of the processor yet.
     

     
    Should work well with the colour scheme.
     
    Most of this week has been spent preparing for the groundwork on our office, which involved digging out the old patio at the bank of the garden.
     

     
    Completely filled a 4 yard skip but only have half a dozen slabs left.

    HM-2 got a reaction from Dogzilla07 in Questions about Fractal Design Torrent case   
    No it wouldn't. What it means is that, in their particular test bench, it doesn't matter what fans you use as they all perform pretty much the same.
     
    Trying to extrapolate from such an inherently poor test to determine which is "better" for a completely different use case is at best misguided and at worst downright wrong.
     
     
     
     
    That said, the P14s are very good fans, especially for the price.
  16. Agree
    HM-2 got a reaction from Dogzilla07 in Questions about Fractal Design Torrent case   
    That's not really "outperformed"; frankly that comparison is highly misleading to the point of being utterly useless as every single fan in that shootout is well within the  margin of error.

    Plenty of B550 mATX boards out there, all of which have 4 RAM sticks. Something like a Gigabyte B550M AORUS PRO would fit the bill.
     
    The MSI MAG B550M Mortar is also white.

     
    You could run something that and still have 2 360x30mm radiators in the Mini.

    I'm not much of a fan of Plastidip. IME it doesn't wear very well and in order to get really good adhesion you need to do like 70% of the same prep as proper paint anyway.

    Another vote for the 5000D, though to be honest unless you're running a massive EATX board you might as well save a big chunk and get the 4000D.

    With a decent primer most stuff including off the shelf acrylic like Rustoleum or Plastikote will stick.
     
    I tend to prefer the automotive paints on metal because you get a richer, more reflective finish but of the readily available stuff I have to say that Plastikote is my favourite. The Multi-Surface adheres well to primed metal and can produce a very smooth finish, though I've only ever used it in matte.
