    Whoooops!

    RIP i7 920 gaming pc

    Jan 2009 to Jan 2018

    I knew you well, we shared so many good times. I kept you clean and upgraded you with decent GPUs, not top range but good enough.

    I had only just got you stable with a new card and a 144hz monitor when I took you apart for a clean. How was I to know the radiator was going to leak and I didn’t notice until after I heard a popping noise. I first thought it was a cable hitting a fan as I saw nothing wrong when I put you back together, how wrong I was. I guess it wasn’t called “low cost liqiud cooling” for nothing. A simple closed loop, long before the hydro series hit the shelves, the same product rebranded to corsair.

    I hope you forgive me when I take you to the tip tomorrow, I will remember you fondly my old friend. Its not the end you deserve but its sadly the best I can give you.

    I wont forget that I got you up to 3.8 when your “Free” OC was only 3.6. You stood strong at that until just recently, maybe that was the start of the radiator issue. I tried to fix it with a new fan but that may have just made it worse. I almost thought it was a PSU problem but the stability at lower clocks was found to lose me just 10fps at worst.

    Looking back I wont forget my first CS:S 5 man, I wont forget my first golf game hole in one (the many easy tiger woods console ones never counted), I wont forget making golf courses on you and I wont forget that day you arrived and I first started you up.

    My desk is empty now, your parts are stripped and put away until I decide what to do next, a part of you will live on I promise.

    Goodbye friend, goodbye.

    There is one reason why I have never dabbled in liquid cooling for a computer..........because it will always one day end in disaster ,

    Just a matter of time

    Hope the replacement is up to scratch👍

    I doubt asetek saw anyone using one for 9 years though... It did well and the end was coming...

    Still not sure if i should build my own or not as I have no done that before.

    I am so glad that the only games I ever really play on a computer are the likes of minesweeper.

    I still remember my first "ace" in Counter Strike. The first four were all good kills, and then I panicked as the 5th man jumped at me from walkway on de_dust2 as I came through double doors from CT spawn and I sprayed my AK all over the place and finally killed him with a leg shot.
    2015 = Worst golf season in memory - End handicap 15.2 - now with added 1.0 after review = 16.2
