    What are you playing at the moment?

    Been heavily into Final Fantasy XIV, just got my first class/job to current max level (80) and finished the main story quest chain as it currently stands. I never paid that much attention to the story in WoW but in FF XIV I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the creature and world design I find quite pleasing as is the music.

    What's on your mind?

    Pity I didn't have that luck last Monday when my car packed it in.

    Had a rather strange occurrence Today, I had an appointment booked for NBN FTTN install this morning AND THEY SHOWED UP. Wonders will never cease.

    I've beaten my finances back into submission after getting a back payment (just before I bought the two monitors). I bought a Surface Laptop 2 (Cobalt Blue, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, and i5 CPU) mid last week and am enjoying it immensely. It's the first laptop I've ever bought, I did have an old HP boat anchor given to me a few years ago that wasn't much good for anything (nice keyboard though). Now to not spend anything until payday.

    Bought myself a couple of LG 27UL600-W monitors to sit either side of my LG 27UK850-W Auspost managed to lose them for a few days, not sure how, must have put them somewhere in plain sight. just need some decent very wide screen pictures for the background. Using eyefinity 11520x2160 without bezel compensation or 11732x2160 with.

    It's the VRAM temps that Timmy Joe has problems with, not the others. I've found with mine that the VRAM sits about 20°C above the GPU temp at idle, coolers specifically designed for these cards will undoubtedlt do a better job of cooling the VRAM and will probably have a higher max fan speed to boot.

    I've got Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut on the GPU, and some 0.5mm Arctic Thermal Cooling Pad sandwiched between small amounts of the supplied thermal adhesive on everything else. the 18cm case fans are running on low speed and make sod all difference to temps, if the card's fans aren't ramping then the RAM will roast.

    Who knows, he has the anniversary edition, and I have the ordinary XT. If the fans don't ramp up properly the RAM temp will head into the high nineties and beyond. I've noted that the Accelero fans hit max speed at a recorded fan % of about 40-42% and that with the GPU temp what it is the fan needs to be ramping up relatively quickly by the time the GPU temp gets to about 35-40°C in my current environment.

    Interesting, I have an Accelero Xtreme III on my 5700 XT and I have no problems with it.

    A bit painful to watch at the start (IMO) and could do with more info:

    Just got an XFX Radeon 5700XT (replacing a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Mini OC), not bad so far, the Timespy benchmark gave me a welcoming BSOD towards the end of the initial demo run but all good since (touch wood). Some people have put R9 290/390 H/S assemblies on the 5700 improving things somewhat so I might give that a go later in the week.

    Just using it as my home router. Quite cheap, no inbuilt WiFi or xDSL modem, and as a compulsive tinkerer I can play with it (when the house is otherwise empty) to my hearts content. Might give OpenWRT or something simillar a go at some stage.

    Just bought a Ubiquiti Edgerouter X, quite a nice piece of kit IMO.

    Looks pretty good. Given the overall look of the default theme, the confirmation dialogs such as the one for mark all read could be darkened a bit, though they aren't big enough to be blinding in the current white.
