It's quite an interesting case...

The original monitor is around 2.5 years old, developed a defect so I RMA'd it. The following three replacements all had issue and defects.

When I complained to ASUS they offered to send another replacement which is brand new.

Nice one man. Nice to see you Mr Quiet !

I've had a mental week. Really hitting stuff hard.. I was sick of paying £35 for bike stickers, given the material costs. When I asked about decals for this -



And was told $70 + $30 shipping and then customs charges etc I kinda blew a fuse. That really, really ed me off. So I decided it was finally time to do something about it and become a one man restoration team lol.

Did tons of research, settled on this because it prints A3, very well.



Got some 3m laminate (that's for cars so it is super tough)



Then set to work.



Printer came.



Bugger me inkjets have come a long way ! (that's decal vinyl btw)

And after a year I could finally do this.



And try mine on for size



Also refurbished some carbon cranks for my race bike.





Did lots of painting.



In the wind



So all I need to do now is strip and paint that frame, and another one is done.

TL;DR I've been very busy !

Oh man, seeing 4790K and Z97 Sabertooth throws me back; best motherboard I ever run. No M.2 slot but that didn't bother me; I still don't have an M.2 drive now, haha.

Honestly is been a right work horse that combo and still running solid, our lass has been wanting to get into the PC gaming scene for ages and my upgrade itch was the perfect excuse. M.2 is the next upgrade for me and maybe a bit more RAM just because I'm hungry for power.

You're making me want to upgrade now... Then again, Im rocking a 7700k with such a good mobo I don't need to.

its just I feel like im falling behind.



Still the best board I have ever had by far! To think I paid £600 at the time for the board and block. It also included a waterblock for M.2 drive as seen in pic below the CPU. And I look at the prices now of the same thing and its in excess of £1400 here.


Only thing I hated was the rotated PSU connector. While everything thinks its cool, it is a nightmare because of the placement always misaligns with grommet holes of every case I have used.

There's quite a few instances where only having 4 cores will be a bit of a hindrance, A work friend of mine has a cherry picked 7700K that does 5.1GHz at silly low volts and he noticed games "felt" a hell of a lot smoother when he swapped it out for a 3900X and general workloads were worlds faster.

You going to see what Zen 3 brings or see what Intel brings with Skylake version 6 next year ?

Well I dont need the upgrades. Gamersnexus proved 7700 is still strong, and my clocks better than his. Ill upgrade when the games I do play are too much. So we will see when Cyberpunk is released. My monitor is 100hz max and so far, i can achieve that on close to maximum settings in every title.

I can patiently wait. Its just seeing everyone make the switch makes me want to as well
