Monte must be truly butt-hurt. Someone's gotta get him to spill the beans.

The purpose of the thermal paste is to ensure there is no air between the CPU and the heatsink. If the heatsink was just being kept in position by gravity, with the harness broken, then there would be tons of air pockets that would be getting very hot.

Also, in the picture of the broken heatsink harness, is that dust covering the areas of the CPU that are without chunks of thermal paste on it?

A new heatsink with the harness would probably cost around $40 - $60. A fried CPU and a new heatsink will cost more.


I still want to know why SPFC never updates the gear page for SP and ignores all emails listing and showing photos of various gear SP have used throughout the years. Lots of gear from classic pumpkins is missing from their list.

Sweet, I just noticed that Monte replied to a Twitter inquiry of mine!

I asked:

A little of that. Still love the music but the collection has turned into things that just doesn't bring in the joy factor and I'm sure there's others who would want it

I propose transferring the information into a wiki similar to nin.wiki

A collaboration between spfc and netphoria. A coming together.

And upgrade that server.

Hi, Richard Spfc here, I run the site and the server and uh huh, uh huh, yes, the answer is yes

If you're who I think you are, I blocked you a long time ago for running your mouth; try sending the info to me from five or so alternate email accounts all at once

It sounds like that isn't me. I've sent just 3 or 4 emails, all from the same address. And mostly years apart. Here's the entire history of emails I've sent to SPFC, with the dates I sent them:



December 2007:

Just a suggestion... that when looking at a song's section it also lists the gear used specifically for that track.



August 2016:

Hi. The section listing Billy Corgan's equipment is missing the following information:


Missing Billy Corgan equipment additional information:

Digitech Valve FX Guitar Pre-amp/Signal Processor:
http://www.spfc.org/band/equipment.h...uipment_id=411

"Guitar Effects from @Billy 's guitar rig - Used on Mellon Collie, Adore, and Machina."
https://twitter.com/PumpkinsEbay/status/8000423141

Smashing Pumpkins on Twitter
twitter.com
“Digitech Valve FX Guitar Effects from @Billy 's guitar rig - Used on Mellon Collie, Adore, and Machina. http://tinyurl.com/yl45zsh”

[that was just pointing out the SP Ebay tweets mentioning that the VFX was used on more than just the Machina live tour]


Missing Billy Corgan equipment:

BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer:

https://twitter.com/PumpkinsEbay/status/12947538152
https://twitter.com/PumpkinsEbay/status/13311387580


The BBE 462 is also visible in this picture (so is the DigiTech DHP-55):





May 2017:

Hi Spfc,

I sent this information a long time ago, but it wasn't added to the equipment list. I checked your Twitter and saw that you regularly post updates, so maybe the email was just overlooked. The previous information I sent is at the bottom of this email. Here's another device used during MCIS recording that can be added to Billy Corgan's equipment list.


Something by Drawmer - maybe a Dual Noise Gate?

Showing the item in Billy Corgan's MCIS studio rig:

A clear picture of a DS201 Dual Noise Gate device:


http://www.drawmer.com/uploads/images/DS201_large.jpg


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[copy of previous August 2016 email included here]



May 2017:

OK, so here's a picture of the exact model rendition of the Drawmer Dual Noise Gate DS201 that's in those pictures: http://soniccircus.com/drawmer_ds201_f_2.jpg


It's the same model as the DS201 that I linked to a picture of in the previous email, it's just the channel labeling and a bit of the white marking that is changed in the other image.




I mentioned just a few missing things in those emails, but there's a lot of stuff other than that which isn't on SPFC.

Yeah I thought so. Check out your massive attitude; I don't need to put up with this passive-aggressive "this email may have been overlooked" shit.

Nevertheless I have reread your messages with interest. When I have plugged the website back into the wall I will add your information.

My name, again, is Roger Spfc (it's Welsh), and I run spfc.com.

I honestly can't tell if this is serious or a joke I should be going along with. That makes it weird, to me. Either way, just trying to help the site out.

What, did you think Spfc was some kind of acronym or something?

That's quite insulting to Roger, tbh
