    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Completed a game!

    Back in the day I completed the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy (text only adventure) without any spoilers / guides (no internet back then) - most recently RDR 2 and GTA V, also finished Portal 1 a while back. (Now I have a 3080 + 4K I may want to redo RDR / GTA)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What is your favourite pedal?

    Boss HM2 (with a undervolted power supply and mids scooped low, gave an excellent "brown sound" - other tended to max it for the "modern" heavy metal of the late 80s (megadeath etc.)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST ...it's hard to resist

    I dug a bit deeper into this and worked out why it happens! It turns out the FedEx aircraft N110FE tends to do a DUB->STN->CDG->STN->DUB routing (with some trips to Madrid and Italy), so sending it to France for clearance will have actually sped up its delivery by not needing it in Dublin (as...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Noisy CoolerMaster MasterLiquid Lite 240 pump

    Seems you now have a good handle on the issue (and the solution): If you want a detailed explanation, I suggest watching this video: TLDR - Propping up with a few books should be fine for a quick fix, long term you need to get that rad in/out pipes higher (or level) with the pump in/out pipes.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST MSI GPUs option is available now.

    I picked the 2-3 day to ROI option... It is worth noting that for some couriers the EU electronic paperwork is prepared in a different jurisdiction (France?) and shows up in the tracking there, even though the package never actually physically travelled (I can't sayu this is the case for Fedex...
