Maybe not the most exciting, but new furnace today. Looks like the guys did a good job, everything is clean and tidy. Apparently the venting before was mixed up (exhaust was intake, intake was exhaust), so it was plausible water could enter the furnace. Had them run 6 wires to my Ecobee too so that it can control the staging. So far so good, seems to be keeping the house more consistent as it's running mostly in stage 1.

So zee Germans (Alphacool) released a GPU block for the Asus TUF 6800XT, which just so happens to also fit my TUF 6900XT (woohoo!!). Get this: I ordered this thing last Wednesday, direct from Germany (sorry Daz!), and it landed today, 6 days later, in Canada in the middle of a pandemic. Thank god COVID is keeping the airplanes free of people, so they can ship stuff this quick, LOL!



It kinda looks like WALL-E's inbred country cousin, but if it performs well, I won't care:


This big mofo is about to go on a diet:


Goodbye and good riddance to yet another air cooler, it will not be missed:


Boom, done:


Significantly slimmer, but still weighs a ton:

It's glorious! After upping the power limit to 375W, setting the core max to 2750mhz, memory clock at 2150mhz (max) with fast timings enabled, the WORST temps I've seen were 45C on the GPU, 64C on the junction temp (looping Time Spy Extreme stress tests). This block ROCKS! The install instructions are idiot proof, and it might be the easiest GPU block install I've ever done. Alphacool has officially impressed me!

Actually have a SF600 already, but figured between the Ryzen 5900x and the 2080Ti a little extra size might not do me any harm. Hoping the SF750 can run fanless most of the time

I hope these deliver on what I'm after.
It'd also be nice to Roam the home with the wireless headphones on and not get constantly disconnected!
