    I noticed a similar thread in the Motoring Forum and searched and did not find one here. I thought that this may be a good spot to post things that you have done to your PC today that you don't think are worthy of posting a thread for, but would still like to share With the Community :thumbup:

    So post away :D

    Like the idea!

    Just got these Koolance Quick Disconnects from Jay, and didn't think it was worth updating my thread with!

    Using them for my drainage valves:D.

    nothing, it all just stopped working, now the CPU won't even boot in my other machine... everything was waddling on fine, stock clocks, playing some RA3 then it just stopped, shut down, refused to boot with any graphics cards, and cpu, tried it in my UD7 and then my main system wouldn't boot :upset:
    so im going to have to RMA it all, and the CPU...

    Riveted the new midplate i made up into my TJ07, riveted the new backing plate i made up to the motherboard tray, measured up the front drive bay for a new alloy one piece that my bro is gonna guillotine and bend for me on monday. Stripped some powdercoat off, decided it was too hard and that im just gonna pay to get it stripped.

    Got quotes for spray job of case (outer) Black with blue pearl.

    Tossing up weather to buy noise deading now or later

    Bought some automotive putty to fix a fuck-up in the backplate

    Gave my OC another punch up.

    Running 4.2ghz 200x21 1.44v (early adopter i7 940 c0/c1 stepping incase you're raising an eyebrow at the voltage)

    Ram 2000mhz 7-9-7-20-1N timings at 1.64v

    Thanks, I'm particularly impressed by the ram overclock. At stocks it runs 1600mhz 6-7-6-18-2N at 1.5v

    Sandy Bridge is coming soon, maybe you should jump onto the i7 bandwagon? Mainstream processors are being released first so prices shouldn't be that bad
