It’s the FINAL final countdown (hopefully for real this time)

Oh my, where to begin. I’ve been having a cold, and I’ve been waiting for the last of my tubes (ended up ruining too many to get the final couple of runs installed) but eventually, things are looking up. I’ve had a little test run with purified water, just to rule out any catastrophic fountain effects, I figured it would be safer to do that with pure water than with brightly coloured coolant, and it’s looking good. This also allowed me to boot the system, just to make sure that the graphics card survived the waterblock installation, which it has, and it also let me find out that one of the shops where I’ve bought my parts, sent me the wrong capacity M.2 SSD, so that’s being replaced. Hopefully I’ll be able to get the new NVMe based Samsung 950 Pro instead, which is black, and will match my colour scheme much better.

Things have been progressing really slowly because of little details things, which means that by now I’m getting really impatient. Fortunately I’ve been informed that my white sleeved CableMod PSU cables have been shipped, so they should arrive some time next week most likely. At that point, there won’t really be anything else missing, other than the replacement M.2 SSD, so I might actually consider installing Windows on the 1TB SATA drive temporarily, so that I can at least run some benchmarks and perhaps even do some overclocking.

To end this post, I thought I’d post the first “glamour shot” of the system with coolant.

The
The “Perfect Pink” pastel coolant from Mayhems really transforms the whole thing.

Sorry for the inactivity

Yeah, that’s right. I’ve not posted anything here since I started this blog. Pretty much how most of these turn out, I’m sure. But that doesn’t mean that I’ve given up on it, or won’t post anything else. It’s just a sign of it being a really bad idea to start a brand new blog shortly before the summer kicks in. I’ve been busy with other things than sitting in front of the PC, and when I have been sitting in front of the PC, I’ve been doing less creative things than writing. But I’ve got plenty of ideas for stuff I’d like to write about. I’ve also got a nice new keyboard, which will make the writing process more enjoyable. I’m going to try to get some writing done over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.

In the mean time… I hope you’re all enjoying the summer 🙂

Interrupt Request

If you are reading this, then there is no real content on this site yet.
This is just a placeholder for what will hopefully be a site with some content, mostly of a somewhat geeky nature, and probably involving such topics as:
– Retro computers, games and software
– Modern computers, games and software
– Science Fiction and Fantasy movies and litterature
– Random writings about whatever might seem like a good idea at the time
So in the meantime, I recommend you find something better to do than to read this text over and over and over… Because I doubt it can be much fun.
