Ah, it's like a old PS2 ad. I can't remember exactly how, but I did manage to hook my old PC to a CRT TV when I had it. Used the TV to play PC ports such as GTA Vice City before I got a PS2 myself.

I went back to team AMD with a Asrock B450 Gaming-ITX/ac and 2200G APU for light gaming.
The CPU cooler is old, but some AM4 mounting brackets give it new life. I might experiment with a passive heatsink later.


I have some old GPUs that have TV output. I'm going to probably toss together a retro rig in a Dan A4 to see if I can get them to work for old PC games and emulators.

Bought an EK leak testing kit a few days ago to help bring my desktop back online after the move.


Made a massive difference in how scary the reassembly process was, helped me identify that my drain port was potentially leaky (it never leaked before, but under pressure the tubing there didn't sit well on the barb), and overall was a joy to use. Definitely recommended for anyone already stomaching the expense of a custom loop.

I've been looking for this case with the hexagon holes too but I've been getting dead links. Could you share which seller you purchased yours from?

Another camera accessory, a "macro" tripod:





Isn't it cute ? Will be handy for product shots on a table.
Nice one. I only have a Gorillapod SLR Zoom for my A100. As long as it gets the job done, though :p

My ITX motherboard wouldn't boot anymore so I had to find a cheap replacement. I went for micro ATX this time, with a Gigabyte B450 Aorus M which was used for $50.

I also bought a Silverstone ST45SF-G for $30, and the only issue was that it didn't have the 24-pin cable. I fashioned one from a very short 24-pin cable I had thanks to @WiSK's pinout diagram and it worked! Considering how cheap this SFX PSU was, I think I made out like a bandit on this one.
