Breaking the rules

Recommended Posts

So it's just over a month till the LAN and i'm going to be breaking the golden rule of LAN prep, which is NEVER open up the case and fudge with the components.

Sod's law states that if you so much as reattached a SATA cable your whole machine will develop some huge showstopper either the night before the LAN or on the day, so as to leave no time to fix it.

But, my watercooling is way overdue an update and needs the new radiator fitting, as well as new fans and a general spruce up.
If it works OK i'll post up some nice pictures, but in the meantime I hope this post serves as an anti-jinx.

Fingers crossed!!!

To be fair, if you buy parts at Maplin you almost deserve to have a faulty machine.

If I went in Maplin and asked for XSPC compression fittings for 16/10mm I would expect their eyes to glaze over.

Overclockers all the way baby!!!!!!

It's not too bad, getting some very favourable thermals now. If it blast this thing with multiple HEVC conversions at the same time as playing a game it handles it like a boss.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
