Elite Dangerous, Just WOW in VR, Everyone that has tried my Rify CV1 has said 1 thing "Holy sh** this is amazing".
It is good. Although the SRV turned my stomach badly.

While not a single purchase as such, I did get my final parts for my side rig at the weekend which is now up and running.




I won't lie, going back to Windows XP is a really weird experience to say the least

Corsair H150i 360mm AIO which launched today, 2 x Corsair HDRGB fans and the Creative Sound Blaster X AE-5 as I want to try it out, A lot of people have been really surprised as to how good it actually is.

It's funny, but I never wanted to have an external DAC/amp because I wanted to maintain Windows control over sound, but since moving to an external unit, I wouldn't want to go back.

I like my desk to be exceptionally sparse, Monitor, Mouse, Mouse mat, Keyboard and over hanging microphone, Nothing else, Hence I opted for an internal soundcard

I don't like clutter, but I like having everything I use regularly within hand's reach. My knife, lip balm, tablet, phone, plectrum, guitar, tuner, glass of water, controller, etc.

OK this is some of the stuff I bought over the Xmas period. It has started arriving slowly..

First up I wanted a killer set of wheels for my killer GT. BMX wheels will cost (note will, not may) about £400 for a decent custom set by the time you have had them laced etc. So I spent weeks looking on Ebay to no avail. Loads of decent front wheels, but no sodding rears. In the end I found these. The front is a Spotlight Superstar sealed hub (NOS) laced to a Shadow Orbis rim (NOS) with new spokes.



The rear is a Proper rim (NOS) with a Salt Plus sealed cassette (used but like new) and new spokes.





Worked a deal with the guy, £100 shipped for the pair. Only one problem, bike has no purple on. Evoke sprocket.



Snafu bar ends.



Snafu cable



Animal wheel nuts



Then some modding supplies. Mirrored acrylic.



Flat black vinyl.



Dust mask (just dust, no paint..)



Misc BB Porsche headset (mine came with just headphones, no mic)

Will do, Arrives tomorrow morning, I'll get pics and temps up running my 1800X at 4.1GHz

On a side note Creative seriously hit the ball out of the park with the AE-5, WOW is all I can say, Comparing it to the Asus STXII, It's better, Hard to believe I know since they ballsed up the "Z" series of cards but wow, Really, Wow !

Creative are back in the game !
