Not surprising you have to pay for companionship, but I won't judge.

Sorry man, money's not an issue. It's just that you look like a goblin and live in a dilapidated shack so I'd be embarrassed to be seen with you :(

Nice set up, Mazda

I'm just putting a Fanatec rig together. It isnt a DD set up or anything, but it has cost me a few quid and I'm expecting it to be quite the upgrade over my Thrustmaster T150

Pics might follow

Fitted the exhaust I ordered onto the bike. Took some metalworking as its not meant specifically for this bike. Pretty happy with the results. Sounds pretty

My god, that looks loud!
Although, it's just the end muffler I guess? Looks like the cat is still under there with the original piping coming out of the engine. Guess it's not entirely as loud as it looks then?

Not sure I appreciate the look on this bike to be honest. It's too much of a monster truck/tractor pull kind of look.

It's actually decent in terms on loudness. It's less loud than your average Harley I'd say. I actually really like the sound now, it was way too quiet before. It does have a very mechanical look, which I prefer or I'd have gotten a full fairing bike. I prefer seeing the mechanical components. It also has very tractor like sounds if I'm being honest, not a lot unlike a Ducati.

next job already planned or some time off?

------------------------------------------------------------

I stopped working in february to chill a bit and work on personal projects.

With my current spending I think I could go without work for another year or two.
But it would set me back a bit on my retirement plans.
Also I plan on buying a new PC/VR setup for gaming and some machine learning experiments and I will need some 3-4k for this. :drool:

I will most likely get back to working for money simetime early next year :down:

My youngest daughter had her first day at school today. Was a bit weird having an empty house all to myself today.

Got cleared to go back to work so I'm back part-time making a little money to supplement my Harvest Moon ripoff project I'm working on.

Just dropped 800 quid on a Lian Li O11 XL, a bunch of noctua fans and an EK custom loop for my Threadripper. Hope I don't piss water all over my rig and ruin it.

Just the flexible black zero maintenance stuff from EK. Hardline would've been more chic but flexible is much easier and less prone to leaking. I also quite like the industrial look of the flexible black hoses. I got black fittings too. Zero RGB. Full nickel waterblock. Baby poop noctua brown fans. Can't wait.

Yeah that stuff is nice, definitely the best looking soft tubing and easy to work with. One day id like to try chrome plated metal tubing...but until then this is what mine looks like. Nothing exciting, I put my pc in a drawer and routed tubing to a MO-RA3 in my basement.

hah my orientation on that pic was all wrong - looked like that was the desk top with a wood panel wall, and the "drawer" was flipping upwards (or sliding vertically).
Neat idea tbh, is it some sort of custom drawerplate mounting board that youve fitted into a desk, or custom desk entirely?

I made the desk, it was originally just a cabinet space but I mounted the door to a large pullout drawer, made a wood base to sit in it and just put a Thermaltake Core P5 in there. I then wired a power switch to the front and put some AC Infinity airplates for ventilation. Works great, completely silent.

I'm gathering the things I require to rebuild my PC. So new case, power supply, mobo and NVME drive incoming. Going to use my old CPU until the new Ryzen chips come out and the old GFX card until either the 3000 series becomes available or Big Navi is released and bench marks well at a nice price.

I dare say this will be the last big wholesale upgrade I do.

How much did you pay and how does it compare to building it yourself?

I did not really pay attention to PCs in a long time but plan on upgrading sometime next year.

Yeah sure... But it's also OK to be lazy and avoid work by throwing money at things.

I can't get started on my closed loop this weekend because a £3 fitting isn't in stock and it's delayed an entire order of parts.

>:(

Just returned from a few days up north enjoying a little holiday :)
Just asking, what's been happening here and about the world?

So, serious question for all this water cooled madness - how much of a performance gain do you actually get out of it? Does the water cycle through a radiator or a heat exchanger of some sort? Pretty neat stuff. :up:

Isn't the real benefit noise reduction, and less dust being drafted through your machine by fan airflow?

Water cooling is far more efficient than air cooling though, so yeah more potential for overclocking - additional performance just depends on the hardware and what it can OC to really
