    HM-2 got a reaction from TheNuzziNuzz in Help finding Duel PSU E-ATX case - that's not the 1000d   
    The O11D XL can fit EEB boards and up to 3 PSUs if you fancy.  I'm not sure why EATX would conflict with radiators though.

    HM-2 got a reaction from andrewmp6 in EK GPU block quality (including active backplate)?   
    Aquacomputer also do an active backplate for the 3090. Think it's only compatible with their blocks though. I personally stay away from EK blocks if I can, I don't feel the quality of them justifies the price.

    Things have been pretty slow the last few weeks- we've had delays with doors and windows, so the office isn't yet finished. They were delivered yesterday so that's at least done now, will be fitted on Monday. Not sorted my desktop yet, because of the colour of the flooring I don't think I can go ash like I had originally planned so most likely going to go for a beech one with a coloured stain so as not to have too much wood tone.
     
    I've been trying to find a decent paint match for the EK satin titanium fittings, not managed so far. The closest I've got in tone is the Rustoleum metallic titanium but it's much to metallic.
     

     

     
    It'll probably do in a pinch but I'd rather get a better match.

    I looked at the Ergotron arms as well as the Humanscale ones. If I was using them in a situation where I was moving my screens a lot I'd gladly go for the Ergotrons but to be honest even the Invision ones are a bit excessive for my actual use case of "two monitors side by side" that will almost never be moved
     
    The Humanscale ones are gorgeous but £530 to accommodate two 27" 8kg monitors which seems a bit...steep. 
     
    I'm a huge ergonomic chair evangelist but my preference has always been for Humanscale over Herman Miller. We have Mirras at work which are nice enough by I much prefer my Freedom task chair...so much I'm actually getting it recovered in nubuck!

    Moved my Seamaster Titanium back onto it's delicious 90s metal strap. Need to put another half link back in as it's a bit tight.
     

     
    That white spot is actually underneath the crystal, I think it needs new seals and a good service, it's not had one in the time I've owned it but the ~£600 price plus the cost of s new crystal is a bit hard to stomach.

    HM-2 reacted to IkeaGnome in EKWB Support is a No-Fun-Zone....   
    Yes, and I agree with him. Depending on company guidelines, the CS agent did the best they can. Did you read your respone?
    Just to clear up. I've never bought anything from EK. I have no reason to defend them as a company. What I'm disagreeing with is 
     
    your reaction. There wasn't any actual bad CS in there. They answered your questions, gave reasoning for their answers and moved on. Like they're probably told to by their supervisors, and their supervisors. It's not like CS can just sit back and chat with you for an hour or hour and a half about different bits and bobs you might want to buy. That's a waste of their time. Also, how did they miss a clear RMA?
    Have you considered that possibly reflecting on what Jan was and wasn't able to say to you in a CS chat?

    Less an update on the PC build, more an update on the garden office.
     

     

     

     

     

     
    That's basically a week of progress. Still need the doors and windows sorting, the last bits of painting, hidden door adjusting and ethernet.

    HM-2 got a reaction from Demonic Donut in Cheapo 240mm cpu custom loop   
    "I botched power tools in an unsafe way and it doesn't work properly but I'll improvise" probably won't fill anyone with confidence.

    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.

    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.
