A few days ago I decided to step into the realm of water-cooling so I can get the most out of my Intel Core i7-2700K processor. So I went ahead and purchased a Corsair H100i hydro cooling unit for my system. Then some complications occurred…
Although my Corsair Graphite 230T case could technically fit the cooler, it wouldn’t allow me to use my current RAM sticks as they were too high – a ‘Very Low Profile‘ DIMM module worked, however that would mean I’d need to buy several hundred dollars worth of RAM. So I sprung for a new Corsair Obsidian 750D case instead.
Normally I don’t announce my computer upgrades often, but I actually live streamed this one on Twitch. You can still see the video (below) on Twitch, however there were some complications with YouTube so it’s only available on Twitch.
We’re almost to the end of Pokémon Omega Ruby after challenging the 8th (and last) gym leader at Sootopolis City. I versed Wallace after undertaking a few puzzles and encountered every trainer along the way. I did however experience technical difficulties in the middle of the stream – there was a blackout. That lead to corrupt local video recordings and missing obs settings. Anyway, take a look at the stream below:
In other news I will soon be reviewing the new Intel NUC HTPC computer which I will be using as a dedicated Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
Stay tuned for that and the continuation of Pokémon Omega Ruby.
I was just having a look at settings trying to get something else to work and found NVIDIA’s surround feature. This was something I was looking for a few years ago when my main setup included 3 monitors. Anyway, it amazed me that it ran Minecraft and Garry’s Mod perfectly so I made this video.
