2. I have already trashed the lino in the kitchen painting (overspray) so can't do it in here any more. I am hoping that white spirit and a mild abrasive will remove it, but I certainly don't want to add any more.

3. CBA lmfao.

It's a shame you can't buy them tbh. Like, black ones. They should all really be black these days too, not just on Titan RTX.

I tell you what I might do, though, and that is wrap the "lid" of the DVI connector with matt black.
white spirit wont do much to cellulose paint and it wont touch 2k paints. A grey scotch brite will more than likely damage the flooring - will leave a scratch and dull surface.

you can get cellulose rattle cans for 9 pounds inc P+P on ebay

It's not 2k paint. I've used the method on all paints though and it's worked before. I wasn't going to use a scoth brite. White spirit is an oil, so it creates lubrication to stop it scratching. I could use Isoprop but it just means harder work.

That's not long as far as most build logs go. Some take years.

Oh yeah I know man but I just couldn't believe I started this in August ! it was so hot then

I also bought another SSD for it (bringing the total to 5, with no spinning drives at all)



My first ever NVME. Thankfully I already have a EK heatsink I am going to put on it. I will partition it 200/800 (or whatever I am left with).
