Needed new shoes and these were 50% off online (Vans ISO 1.5). Think I got a great deal. Gotta love Bordeaux red, too.



Nice haul by the way, Alien! Gotta love those aquacomputer blocks. They're mad sexy.

Just a few new things...

I've had a busy time lately After weeks of issues with my GPU and my motherboard, I finally buckled down and got stuff sorted. Sent my 980 Ti off to EVGA, and then I went to search for a replacement for my i5 and my Z77 mobo. A week ago EVGA gave me a lovely surprise, and two days ago, the day before my birthday, my new gear arrived!



Lovely surprise up/side-grade here from EVGA. Went from a 980 Ti to 1070 FTW thanks to the kindness of someone in the RMA dept.




ASUS ROG Strix B350-F mobo. The budget was super tight, mostly because it was reliant on the resale value of my old gear. So while I would have preferred an X370 board, beggars can't be choosers. This thing not only fills my current needs, but it looks so god damn nice.



The brains of the group. My first AMD powered rig since 2011, and boy howdy is it nice. I may or may not upgrade this to an R7 later down the road, depending on what happens with Zen+ and/or Zen2. For now though, it is more than good enough.



RAM was something of a tricky decision, given the apparent issues with compatibility. This is G.Skills Ripjaws F4-3200C16D-16GVK. Yet again, budget was the deciding factor here, and as such I am stuck with 3200 RAM that I can't get any higher than 2400 without crashing, or at least not until I figure out all this AM4 overclocking malarkey.



Here's the new rig all powered up and looking lovely. Got some LED lighting strips on the way to hook to the RGB headers on the mobo, and a second set of addressable stuff (yay for sales) for when ASUS finish the AURA software. Oh, and no I don't run with the side off, that's just to get rid of reflections.

and this is what I got for my actual birthday from my wife



The book is something I've seen a lot of people on Twitter talking about, and after seeing various bits of it posted up by owners of the book, it went on my Amazon wishlist. The other things are two mini Lego Brick Headz. Just because I'm nearly 40 doesn't mean I can't play with Lego still

And finally, fingers crossed, on Tuesday I'll be taking delivery of my EVGA CLC 280 to replace the AMD stock cooler, and that'll be me done until I can afford an M.2 drive. Not a bad week really

Without the shopping list it would look awesome.

There was nothing wrong with your post I've un-deleted it.
You can of course re-delete it if you wish though.
