Runs very cool and very, very quiet. The fans and pump are set to 7v, so it's like a very gentle whoosh if you stick your head in it and pretty inaudible otherwise.


As usual, looks very tidy and neat, nicely done. What do you mean by 'wall of water' though?

Steam have added support for the PS5 controller.

Mmm. That's a big gap from "Steam can support the controller" to "lots of games use the controller's unique features."

'allowing players to enjoy games like Death Stranding or Horizon: Zero Dawn with the full range of PS5 DualSense controls.' >> that sounds like bullshit. Why would the PC versions of these games have DualSense support? Reading other sites, I suspect it just means that the games work the same as they do with a DualShock 4. So you get basic rumble, but not the fancy new haptics.

That's disappointing, but understandable. Although if Sony are licensing the tech from a third party, it's not beyond possibility that support could show up in the PC realm.

As long as Sony haven't locked that shit down tight. Which they probably have.

Decided I needed yet another PC.

I've been running my new HIFI stuff with an Amazon Fire cube thing. It's great for videos, netflix and so on but didn't really sound all that great with music. So I bagged one of these for £42 on Amazon.

Image

I then dug out my old collection of PCIE sound cards, deciding on the Xonar STX. Bought a PSU for £14 on Ebay (SFX)

Image

And then all I needed was an ITX board and some RAM. I started the hunt for a Ryzen 3200g. None. Moved onto the 3400g. None. OK, I will settle for an Athlon G. Will I fuck. Again, there just aren't any any where. Beginning to get a bit desperate I said "OK fuck it, let's just get a Celeron" and that seemed an impossible task also. I guess people gobbled them all up for cheap at home office PCs and thus there are none left. Beginning to despair I finally stumbled across this very strange beast.

Image

Which is basically a SOC quad core Celeron. That has laptop RAM banks. So I got some RAM.

Image

And build.

Image

Board went in later. Looks pretty damn good atop the hifi.

Image

Managed to find the badge on Ebay. Now all I need to do is replace the annoying and ultra bright white LED with a blue one to match everything else.

The AV32 can do 96khz, but what has made the biggest difference is the DAC onboard the sound card. Tried a few "Hi resolution" audio CD rips, pah can't tell the difference there but man it makes that Fire Cube sound like poo with music.

Just got a logi Mx Keys keyboard.

It allows me to swap between pcs without needing 2 keyboards.

The Mx master mouse is great as I can swap between pcs easily (ok lift up press button put down)

Trying mouse without borders so allow my mouse to use both screens and pcs at the same time etc. Not a perfect app but it is ok.

I am just trying to have less on my desk. Well when I declutter the stuff on there.

Going to keep one of my Mx master and k360 keyboard for my travels with work. As the keyboard is small enough to keep in my laptop bag.

Upgraded mine the other day. To 32gb, and a Der8auer bracket (that moves the cold plate on the cooler in line with the cores).

Within about a minute of cleaning out the dust filters the fluff starts to settle again *sigh*

[edit] Turns out it literally is upside down. Nothing the forum can do about that :)

I bought a Logitech G613 wireless mechanical keyboard the other week to declutter the desk in the new office. And an MX Master 3, because my attempt at replacing the battery in my MX Master 1 broke the scroll wheel and made the gesture button hyper-sensitive.
