    Already thinking about some form of custom water cooling.. the board does have a block after all.. :D

    Unless you mean hardware wise, well I have a 3960x/Sabertooth X79 if I want to clock something much more powerful.. :)

    Was tempted by a Phenom machine at some point but will stick to messing around with 775 for now. Planning a review series along the lines of "Reviews no-one asked for in 2019".

    Oh god... I recall I had a Vantec Tornado / Thermaltake V12 cooling my A64 4000+ back in the day. I think I can blame my partial deafness on it!

    That's the question I was actually asking - what AC-to-DC adaptor are you planning to use with it? :grin:

    Oops, well it should be a Dell la330pm160, thats that recommended one to use. Though I'm currently looking also at a PicoPSU as I can get away with that in APU magical mode, just waiting on confirmation.

    Viltrox LED light (L116B) and an appropriately amped power brick. Half-following Adam Savage's suggestion about using them as work lighting. Not doing line-loc, though, that crap is expensive as all get out here.

    I have a couple of those for streaming lights. Try gutting a couple of cheap anglepoise style lamps for stands.

    Might have to look into a chiller like solution if I go that far.

    I do remember drooling over the Phase change units that were all the rage around the same time period.

    WHAAAATTTT!
    I've been looking into doing a series like that for bit. 'How far will it go' was going to be the name.
    Might be what has caused my recent ear issues

    "THANKS FOR PURCHASING
    THE HUMBLE CRUSADER KINGS II BUNDLE"
    Already got the base game and a couple of the DLC, but still a cracking deal for £12 and I couldn't resist, also nabbed Cossacks 2 complete on GOG, hoping it might be a little happier with my daily than the copy I've got from Steam, got the 30 day money back if not I guess.

    Not purchases per se, but I got For Honor [sic] and Alan Wake for free on the Epic Games store.

    I've been looking at these but couldn't work out if they were your typical facebook ad quality. What do you think of them?

    Very pleased with them personally, They've been sponsoring LTT and other YT channels, plus i used various coupon codes, so I've not paid the full price (£71 each + Shipping, UPS from Poland)

    They also allow you to upload your own photo, so it can be sold as a Displate, and you make earn a small commission on each.

    Current coupon code is 20% off & Free shipping using code: Happy, Or, i have 2 30% off codes which i can PM anyone if interested.

    000's of art styles on 3mm aluminium in 3 sizes from (what looks like) A3 to A1.

    For every one bought, they (claim to) plant 10 trees.
