My Daily Thread

In this thread I will post daily about garbage. It is entirely without value and that's what makes it great. You can post daily in here too. We will compete for space to write things without value.


First post will be about my PC, last week I made a new PC build because I was sick and tired of videos taking eight years to render. I had a detestable four core 4770k that would get insanely hot and shriek whenever I tried to make videos about chickens in Outworlder, which is the primary purpose of video editing.

Also I had been stuck on DDR3 RAM for seven years, can you believe that? More like DDR SCRAM!!!

So I put together my new build, it goes as such -

Cooler Master H500P Mesh (before you say anything this not the disastrous original H500 case, it used to be one of the best cases for thermals)
MSI Z490 Unify MOBO (it unifies us all, also good OC board)
Intel 10700k CPU (eight cores and sixteen threads compared to four is lol)
Corsair Dominator 3200mhz 32GB RAM (very good timings for 16GB sticks)
A Corsair Gold Rated 850W PSU (you may say overkill but I overclock literally everything on my board)
Arctic Liquid Freezer II (My first time not using air cooling for the CPU)

Stuff left over from my last build -

GTX 1080 TI (I want a 3080 plox)
512 SSD (I had an internet friend send me this)
1TB Spinny Drive (I hate it so much)

Right off the bat I can say videos render in about... one quarter of the time they did before? Which is insane. Also RDR2 runs at a solid 30 FPS on Ultra 4K which is sublime. You ever see how crisp horse-bung looks in 4K? Mama mia. Instead of my CPU going nutzoid at around 70 degrees my new AIO keeps my CPU at 55 degrees max even at full load. That's insane. Too bad my GTX 1080 TI is an ASUS Turbo and is in a deadzone within my case, meaning that it hardly gets direct air pressure over it, so with my current crippling overclock it crawls up to 85 degrees at full load. Whatever, as long as it's not 90 I'll deal with it.

Tell me how much you hate the 4770k. It's okay if you never had a 4770k just tell me you hate it. Or post your build.

Omelet with mushroom and tomato today. It was alright. Also cheese. A cold glass of milk. Additionally, a small bar of chocolate.

I am sated.

I must massively resist the urge to blow two hundred bucks on a complete GBC copy of Link's Awakening DX.

New build has bent pins in the CPU socket and my GPU has apparently had the great timing of deciding to slowly die as well.
That means a new mobo and a 3080 simultaneously, disgusting.
