Personally I started doing basic 3-2-3 just as I started Yau, but I don't think that is a good thing because I barely had any experience with how edges pair up, so maybe sub 1:45 or sub 1:30 would be a good time to start 3-2-3. As for doing F3E first, it makes look ahead easier when you finish the rest of the edges, since the bottom is solved and it solves the cross which takes a lot of time in 3x3 stage, since you can't inspect without wasting time.So, I have been working of 4x4, and I was wondering, how fast can you get before you need to switch to 323 edge pairing?
Also, when I do my 4x4 solves, I never solve the F3E (the cross edges), I just solve all the centers, then solve all the edges. I found that constently moving the preserved cross edges around while building the centers takes forever and is really slow for me when I started. What is the advantage of the doing the F3E first, then building the L4C, then solving the rest of the edges?
Thanks for the tips! That's usually why I solve the all the centers first, then solve all the cross edges so there is no inspection, then move onto the rest of the edges. Also, I average about 1:30 right now, so it might be a good time to move onto 323, but since I don't have much time to cube, I'm just going to save my cubing time for enjoyment, and mainly focus on 3x3Personally I started doing basic 3-2-3 just as I started Yau, but I don't think that is a good thing because I barely had any experience with how edges pair up, so maybe sub 1:45 or sub 1:30 would be a good time to start 3-2-3.

What keyboard is that?
Nice! I’ve been wanting to do that for a while, but I don’t know anybody who has a pool. I know a few people who live on lakes, but I figured that I probably shouldn’t bring a cube in the lake.Our grandparent's pool just opened and I solved my first cube underwater!! It was really fun and I was glad I was able to accomplish it
It's just an old apple keyboard that I found. I don't know the name, but what I like about it is that it has a keypad on the right so I can easily type in the times. Also, the space bar is bigger, so it's nice to have that feature as well.What keyboard is that?
I think someone has already mentioned this, but that desk setup is PERFECT for cubing! the cubes on the shelf, the laptop+keyboard with still enough space for a larger mat.Since profile posts are gone, I guess I'll just post a few updates here. I switched over from CS Timer to CubeDesk, and optimized my cubing setup. Here's a picture:

I also was doing a Rubik's Connected race on the hardest level, and after losing a couple of times and re-matching, I finally beat my opponent. He got really mad at the loss and left

And also, finals for my school are pretty much ending this week, so I hope to cube a lot more and record some more youtube videos for my channel, COLLier Cubing, as I haven't uploaded because of my busy school schedule. Anyway, that's pretty much it!
