TBH I don't really have issues w/ the backside of the fans IF the logos aren't tacky / incorrect direction.
3D printed reservoir mount.
Sleeved and stickered the bottom rad fans.
And using the other stock 140mm for exhaust. Sleeved and stickered.
Wiring @ PWM hub. Will probably...
3D printed some hub covers to replace the aging stock stickers on the Gentle Typhoons.
Back to 2x140mm. Will just have to ditch the Samsung 950 Pro. Gave rad a paint job.
Barrow order came in. EVGA 3080 even gets an active backplate.
And then for the MSI RTX3070 Ventus. Way overkill...
Random IO is very important. But for desktops / laptops, only the low queue depth 1-2. You'll generally not see higher without multiple users hitting the drive at the same time.
But SATA really hit its limit there a while ago. So just get whatever is cheapest IMO.
Working on installing radiators in Fractal torrent. Fighting w/ it for about an hour to shoehorn in the 2x180mm + 3x140mm. Finally get them in. Just to realize the ports on the 3x120mm are blocked by a fan on the 2x180mm. If you read my post in my thread I first tried a 2x140mm but the fan...
It is a massive improvement over the TVs UI. Like I can get in to an app before the AVR has even finished powering on. Couple complaints, first is Plex's app. It just doesn't have the same settings control as the ones on my TVs. And the other is if the internet goes down, the FireTV is useless...
NoI spend nearly the last 12 hours trying to convert my home automation back from my paid cloud subscription to local control + DDNS. Was an extremely frustrating day. But I think everything works... And it works so much better. Better than ever. Even fixed some of the long term issues I had...
2.5 months and I can't handle Nabu Casa. I don't mind paying for a service. But it isn't usable. 1/4 of the time when I call an Alexa automation it times out or it it takes 5 seconds, runs automation, then proceeds to tell me it timed out. I rely on this. Time to go back to the DIY solution...
LG will have a 42" OLED TV next year. They also released a 32" OLED this year. However it is meant as a reference display for color grading. It ain't cheap.
As long as you can fit a 2nd display for web browsing, etc. Burn in isn't an issue. I put 3000 hours on my C9 before upgrading to a C1...
