I've become a weird keyboard snob. In the picture, a Glorious GMMK board with Kailh bronze switches and thick/soft o rings. It's my favorite so far. Short travel with a light, sharp click.

I've also have keyboards with Cherry Red, Brown and Blue, along with a Unicomp Model M. The Unicomp is well suited for typing angry emails ;)
Once they arrive, I'll be switching from Cherry Blue to Kahil Blue. I've been eyeing the Unicomp, too, but the lack of custom key caps such as blank ones have been swaying me away for now.

The Unicomp is a completely different animal than any of the Cherry style switches.
a) It's loud. It sounds like the drum section of a Jr. High School marching band. Not recommended for a quiet office.
b) Keys are heavy. You're fingers will get a workout.
c) If you get pissed off at your computer, and pound both fists on the keyboard, the Unicomp will ask for more.
d) It can be used as a weapon to bludgeon intruders.

Sounds like a really satisfying switch if one were on a POS system all day, but had to manually enter prices. I don't think that sounds like a switch I'd like to have around for every-day typing.

Might be slightly off topic here but anyone use Arch linux? Getting a new thinkpad in tomorrow or Friday and i'm thinking of going with Arch, but having trouble on deciding on a desktop environment/window manager to go with.

Not a new build, but not much I'd wanna upgrade other than swapping in a 2080 card.

Jesus, what a chonky power supply. Gonna run two RTX Titans in RAID soon? I'm about to run a 2070 Super on a 550W and I should be fine. I'll bump up to 650W, if not.
Very clean build, love the aesthetic.

I love my pi. Makes a good little makeshift NAS/torrent box. Also have it hooked up to my tv and just remote into it anytime I want to watch a movie. It's led to me finding the homelab subreddit and now I eventually plan on having a whole rack in my basement.
Love these little things...For me, I went down the retro gaming rabbit hole and set up an arcade one up cab with all the emulators, most importantly MAME, and upgraded all the buttons, joysticks, speakers, etc. Still working on some additional mods like lit marquee and and some led lighting, and upgrading the screen....my kids love it lol

It's overkill for sure. I used to run twin 6990s when I had an amd setup, but just kept it once I went full intel/Nvidia.

Looking at the new i9 9900k is tempting AF, but I'd have to get a newer mobo and the 2080 card to make it shine.

I'd rather mod my R instead lol.

I've got a 3700X and a 1060 right now. The build is mostly done, other than swapping out the 1060 for a 2070S soon. I'm in the same boat - I'd rather revamp my suspension.

Got my first headset - the SteelSeries Arctis-7. Out of the box, the sound quality was kind of unimpressive. I'm a casual audiophile and I've got two pairs of cheaper IEMs that sounded better out of the box.
However, after tweaking some EQ settings, I've got this headset sounding pretty cherry.

On the rare occasions I use my computer for gaming and I open the door to leave the room, I realize how much heat it puts out.
My fans must be excellent because my CPU never breaks 65C under heavy load (30-35C when browsing webs) and my GPU hovers between 70-75C. All that warmth goes straight to my cat's chilly bones.

Noctua case fans and Cryorig coolers....

I don't have any temp monitoring on my desktop (oops) but I do on my laptop. Highest i've seen it go was ~60C, but then the fan starts sounding like a plane ready for take-off. Usually i'm at 35-40C when just browsing or coding.
