nice rig aliali... my ancient 2500k oc'd to 4.2 is still fine on the games i play at 1440k with a gtx760 oc  (having ram at 2133 helps)

 

but i reckon a 1060 6gb would be a sweet upgrade; 1070 is overkill at the price for my needs, but having the equivalent of a 980 at the power draw of less than my current video card would be the shizzle

 

 

addit comment on the drone : it was pretty amazing that i could solder the bits for camera and flashing to the board on the quadcopter - a few years ago i couldn't solder at all, and now 2mm spaced pins seem pretty reasonable :

Nice, but you may need to redo the left hand one. The dimple around the wire suggests not quite enough heat on the wire itself. Perhaps just keep an eye on it for possible connection issues.

Ye the power efficiency of the modern CPUs and GPUs is pretty bloody amazing.


Of course you are my bright little star,

I've miles and miles of files pretty files of your forefather's fruit,

and now to suit our great computer. You're magnetic ink.

it's only in use during flashing, so no biggie, as it only gets jiggled rarely

 

but if i need to pull the thing apart again, i'll fix that... ta !
