    I think the bigger issue is the low fan speed and GPU usage.

    @Smellyhead, have you tried setting a manual fan curve? If you can get the fan speed sorted, try running one of the heaven benchmark on max settings to see if the gpu usage is still limited to that. Also, did you do a clean driver install after putting in the new card?

    Parking ticket whilst going to Hospital, used to live on the same road I parked on, didn't notice the really small sign about resident badges only until I returned.

    Probably would have got a ticket in the car park, 2.5 hour delay to get x-ray and doctor to say, we need you to come back again

    Re-felting the shed roof this afternoon I forgot to put some gloves on before slopping the glue about. Half an hour of scrubbing and removing of skin later....

    If the Mrs (or you..:grin:) has any nail polish remover, that'll do the trick nicely.

    If all else fails, the fumes will make you not care anymore....

    Yeh I tried that, but there's so many cuts and grazes it stung to buggery. Her makeup wipes were quite successful and got me that far, but can't get into my prints and under nails. Was going to try TIM cleaner but can't find it now and I know I've had it recently :rollingeyes:

    IIRC WD40 or similar will get that stuff off. Assuming it's bitumen type goop. Some say olive oil or baby oil too.

    Isopropyl alcohol will shift it too, so will orange oil, with a teensy bit more added sting. :D

    Man up and take it like a champ!

    Either of these should work. WD40 will probably work out cheaper :)

    Come on Dave, we all know I'm no champ. Just a punk-ass chump.:eeek:

    I've got some wd40 so will give that a blast. If nothing else it'll stop my knuckles squeaking.

    iMac has dies and this time I fear it's beyond economical repair. Added to the fact I'm not in a position to replace it anytime soon I think my ability to edit photos and do a bit of light gaming is about take a hit.

    WRONG - WD40 is not a lubricant. You want some proper oil to stop those squeaks, or grease if it's a heavy-duty joint.

    Just trying to help :thumb: :grin:

    Work's Office 365 (I know!) keeps asking me to sign in with 2FA every 30 seconds because it's lost the password server.

    Absolutely this.

    My wife said her downstairs parts stung for a week.

    Thank you, thank you, tip your waitress, try the veal.

    When my mechanism gets sticky, a good scrub with a nail brush when in the shower, usually sorts it out.:grin:
