    20+, but ideally the full height of a rack. It's less about number of sockets and more about the proximity of the socket to whatever is using it. It all started with a 30-way 2m long PDU.

    I discounted those fairly early on because even though you can ask for a 32a plug, the internal wiring still seems to be specced for 13a - I find it unlikely they would change that out as well.

    Ah. I think I missed that part of the thread.
    How about these guys? 24 sockets on a commando as standard:-

    Never mind. That page has everything tagged "Call for availability" :(

    Call for availability in itself isn't a non-starter, I've found that most of these are made to order - so a week or so lead time.

    Missed those somehow... either that or I breezed past them when I thought I'd nab something <£100 on ebay.

    £220 for a 24-way, which on one hand is ridiculous, but on the other hand is <£320. Bookmarked, cheers.
    I'll give them a call to validate that they're actually rated for 32A though, that seems to be the favourite trick of the low-cost ones (not that this is, I mean the <£100 ones) - give it a 32A plug but then find from the fine print it's 1.5mm wiring, which seems like bad times waiting to happen.

    EDIT: Actually rated for 32A, and availability in a week. Plan B. Or C, or whatever letter it is now.

    With modern boost behaviour, kinda. But since this is about VRAM throttling at stock clocks with stock pads and running at higher clocks while staying cooler with different pads... cheapskate tactics and should not leave the factory. VRAM doesn't boost like the GPU does, unless I'm getting this all shockingly wrong.

    What a piece of work! Someone has put a LOT of time in to make the keyboard (rice paper?) and decorate it.
    What sort of cake is within? Do, post a follow up pic once it has been breached.

    My daughter made fairy cakes for my 50th birthday the other year decorated with red & blue icing PUBG air drop crates each nestled in red buttercream for the smoke!
    I'll see if I can dig out a pic.

    The keyboard's printed on edible paper from a photograph, then printed again and each key cut out and placed on a piece of fondant to raise it up. The rainbow and Sinclair logo are coloured, rolled fondant, while the ZX Spectrum decal is hand-painted. Triple-layer Victoria sponge inside. Tasty!

    You either paid a lot of money or somebody really likes you. My bet is on the money thing.

    Happy birthday and may you celebrate many more! :clap:

    Corsair HX850i, because the H1000x is about a decade old, has had a fan replacement, and is clicking like it's about to ask for another one.

    If iCue can be believed, the PSU is providing under 400w when running heaven and cinebench.. It's made me wonder if my ram speed issues was down to weird power..

    Do you and @Mister_Tad buy your big book of dad jokes from the same place? :happy:

    Seriously though, let me know what it's like. I've picked up a Ryobi jigsaw and combi drill so far and want the slightest excuse to buy more. :thumb:
