So today, I did a complete system clean up.  Cleaned out all the dust and re-did the thermal paste on both the CPU and GPU.  Nice thing about these old Radeon GPU's is, it's only 4 screws to remove the cooler from it.

I still don't know why I am getting console port errors from Abyss when the computer is starting back up.  I basically have to go into the Abyss web server config, change the port manually.  Restart the computer and Abyss will error again.  Manually change the port back again, restart Abyss, and then loads normally?  You would think that something else is using that port on startup.  But it's only Abyss....

Wait..... WHAT!?  He is making all the other instrumental sounds?  Wow!  :o  Nice.

Don't they call that "beat box" or something like that?

So I have been doing some more work on my system. 

I had relocated the rear mounted 120mm radiator and fan to the front, in the hard drive bay area.  Had to remove 4 of the 5 HDD sleds to make it fit.  In the rear fans place, added a rear mounted Phanteks Glacier D140 RGB distribution plate.  Replaced the EK-XRES 140 pump/res with a Corsair XD3 RGB pump/res.  Replaced the EK-Supremacy EVO CPU block with a Corsair XC7 RGB CPU block.  Replaced the XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT FE and BYKSKI full cover block with a Powercolor Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Devil.  And then added a coolant temp sensor to the exit line of the top mounted 360mm radiator.

Here is what it looks like now.  Note.  I haven't finished the cable management yet.

Geek / Games Discussion / Here comes Windows 11!?
« Last post by Sandman[SA] on July 05, 2021, 05:50:01 pm »
Microsoft stated a while back that Windows 10 would be the LAST OS they intend to put out.  And here they are coming out with Windows 11.  Oh, by the way.  Support for Windows 10 will end sometime in 2025.

It's been stated that it will have a new UI, similar to something like Mac OS has.  But also try to bring back a failed UI that Windows 8.0 featured and failed.  Namely touch screen UI.  Also, there is loads of talk about TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) only support.  If your computer doesn't have this, you may not be able to install Windows 11.

Here is a list of processors that currently have TPM 2.0 support.  In short, AMD Ryzen 2000 series and up and Intel Core series, 8th gen and up have it on the processor.  But needs to be enabled in the UEFI.

 On a severe Hail Mary, I tried taking the circuit board off a no longer functioning hard drive that I had in my multi media storage server that had just died recently. I have a screw driver kit that fit the 6 point star pattern screws on the drive so since there were some hints of maybe bad contact, I figured nothing to loose but some time.
 took out the screws on the circuit board carefully pulled it away from the bottom of the drive as not to rip the foam padding between the surfaces used a pencil eraser (soft) to clean the discolored contacts on either side of the board and carefully reassembled the drive.
 Shockingly it is back from the click of death that it was doing before I tried this. Now I wouldn't recommend continued use of a once failed drive but I have another a 2tb that I wasn't able to pull data from about 8 years ago that I just tried the same on and am pulling data successfully from to a backup drive as I write this (and at a surprisingly good speed too).
 Just thought it was some usefull info. if you drop a drive, this won't work. has nothing to do with physical damage. but sometimes drives just stop working, and this might just get you a chance to get you data like I seem to have.

 Blues type version of Ain't No Sunshine good for headphones or a decent audio system.
