    So far I've really enjoyed the DC Black Label comics. I was quite surprised and unhappily so when I saw that they've started re-releasing old Batman comics (like Mayhem and Arkham Asylum) under the new label. I really think they should've kept the new label clean, only releasing new content on it.

    Back on topic: a PCR test because I'll go to Rotterdam tomorrow to receive training for my new job as well as my work laptop and phone.

    PS2 SCART cable so I can finally make use of @Byron C's SCART interface board, since the other bit turned up not too long ago and I did the cabling, so now it's a case of testing and making some sort of box to contain it all.

    Chromax, the older generation tech seems to be available in grey, and the industrial ones are black too.

    Mine are the redux ones, sort of a darkish grey i think.

    Think that's part of the Chromax lineup?

    Not that it matters to me, they're not available in India, but I haven't built a rig in so long, I'm clearly way out of the loop.

    Big ol' box o' Gateron blues to repair a Noppoo Lolita Spyder whose Kailh browns are practically knackered.

    I was going to splurge and try out the Glorious Pandas instead, but I think I can save the slightly more extravagant switches for another time (or another project). Also HOLY CRAP did I open a can of worms when I started looking for info on the Glorious Pandas...

    I honestly have no idea - I ignored Noctua for a long time in the fan department, that beige/brown is just an eyesore to me - Especially because most of my builds haven't really been in a position to be complimented by that colour scheme.

    I've also got redux fans - Those are the ones I meant are older tech (Although regurgitating what someone told me when I posted here about buying them, have done no research myself).


    I've been pondering something like that to replace the switches in my Filco - I kind of want to add some backlight to the keys, even though the keycaps aren't translucent at all.

    Some of the fans have come out in the Black models, so the NF12-F12 is only in biege but I got them as you wont actually see them as then will be behind a rad, where as the bottom fans you will, thankfully then slims have been released in black

    Can't beat some "stealth" beige / brown Noctua fans..

    My case has a grand total of 4:

    2 140mm low RPM / High SP in front (hidden completely by the front panel of the Lancool II)
    1 140mm on NH-D14 cooler (sandwiched between the heatsink stacks thus barely visible from the angle I view the case)
    1 120mm in rear of case (mostly blocked by CPU heatsink and monitor position)

    I was going to switch them all out for some shiny new Chromax models, but the idea of spending over £50 just to "improve" the look of my system right now is not something I can justify. Plus if I wanted to improve the look I would just go back to the H100x + ML120 combo I was using (I switched back to the air cooler as I wanted the system as quiet as possible).

    Big ol' Stanley 12 inch square. I originally set out to buy an aluminium one, but testimonials for this one are hard to beat - super accurate, very robust despite being plastic, and £15 is a good bit cheaper than the metal alternatives.

    Yeah, for me I didn't have the fans so was a no brained. Two will be behind the rad the third tucked up high anyway till I go full custom.


    Current situation. Lighting is white in person just the RGBs pick up wrong on camera

    That's a speed/rafters square but yes always steel for those kind of tools

    Received a Qisan Magicforce 83 keyboard in the post this morning.
    Cheap (£20) on ebay, with Outemo browns.

    Was looking for a daily driver full size mech board, but couldn't resist this as a secondary board for tinkering with test builds.

    I seem to be able to type more accurately with this than my Corsair K65 TKL with MX reds.

    Will now go on the keyboard thread and ask about keycaps...

    In my case the Noppoo's PCB doesn't have the footprints for LEDs, so adding backlighting would be... challenging.

    I have a Magicforce 68 as my 'day-to-day' keyboard. The lack of dedicated F-keys and Home/End are driving me crazy!
