AKON happened over the weekend. That was fun but the venue was meh. Started looking at building a Quadruped robot since my friend showed me a robot planter thing. Today has been mostly taking notes on the components I'd be using.

On the SFF side, ugh. I lost my Radian files. At least it was simple enough for me to start over.

Ended another week of work at one of my jobs. Playing Iconoclasts on my Switch and Pokemon Glazed on my Pocket-Go when I can to keep my mind active.

Listening to the soundtrack to Iconoclasts right now. Currently on Family (Settlement 17) and it really like typing to this beat.

got my rig running ninja quiet. Shoehorned a pair of 140mm fans into an LZ7 by binning off the GPU.

CPU fan 600/700~ rpm
System fans 650/700~rpm

CPU idle 45c
chipset 46c
"system" where ever that is 36c

PSU fans not moving probably because the 600W PSU is so under loaded now (215W or there abouts)

Next up load tests, should be amusing.

Debating going down the HDPLEX route, 400W incase I fit a graphics card in the future.

Sorry to read what happened with Radian @Biowarejak . May the design go much faster when you start again.

I am currently trying to get stuff done. After a long work week and meltingly hot Saturday (where I did nothing productive), I have much to do.

Spent most of this afternoon email back and forth with Larry of HDPlex fame.

Managed to get a prototype heatpipe CPU block and NUC IO panel along with some USB cabling from him. Should allow me to put my NUC in a H1 HDPLEX case. I'm really excited for it arrive.

Spent the last night fidling with my pc. my ssd performance was a bit weird, coppying a folder with work files was taking unreasonably long.
I got like, several 1GB photoshop files and sustained transfer speed was down to 10mb/s or lower sometimes.
turns out my ssd is just suposed to be like that which is a bummer. I mean, generally faster than an HDD for most stuff but inconsistent.
that is the main sandisk ultra 480gb I got this year, my older 120 kingston has much better 4k rand performance. just wanted to share, cheap ssd are cheap for reasons lol

I almost formated my drives but i'm not sure that would help honestly. anyway, feels nice having some time to do anything on my pc.

Is it a cacheless drive? Those can really bog down under sustained loads. Still, I know Extreme Pro is SanDisk's premium line, but I wouldn't expect Ultra to be slow...

I think it might be it. do we have an storage thread here? I'll post my crystal mark results later today. maybe i'm reading to much into it
