    Ordering tonight or tomorrow. For del friday.

    Just depends how long it takes me to get enough in my basket. I keep changing my mind thinking, no I dont need that.

    the two white cathode kits are the only constants atm (mind you they were blue not long ago), lol.

    ok cool. Just trying to decide whether or not to get the can of air or not. Seems a waste of money IMO, it was handy the last time I had a can but I have made do, why should I pay £7 for something that is all around me.

    The XLF fan would be in my basket now and I would have ordered if it wasnt out of stock!

    I had the very same prob with rig 2 using the soundmax card in windows media center a while back, kept telling me it was in the wrong jack. Tried so many things to get it working to no avail. Then when win 7 came out switched to that and not a problem. Sorry i have no solution for you.

    I really feel for you Moonpig, i've not used ocuk since they bent me over. Think i sent my old Asus Commando back 4 times with no solution and had to pay shipping. In the end i upgraded to the blitz and had to pay the difference. Also they used to have quite good pricing but not now.

    I've not used the main rig since last week, after buying new case a stuff for the water cooling. Got the case as i picked that up but delays with everything else i ordered. Got an email telling me the tubing was out of stock when it wasn't when i ordered and to top it all off they don't know when their getting new stock. So i check every e-tailer i know of for the same tubing (Tygon 1/2" ID clear) and they are all out of stock :wtf:
    How long will i have to wait to use my pc again!!!

    Can anyone recommend a good 120mm case fan (preferably blue) that's got good air flow & quiet.

    Looking for one to stick on the side panel of my Antec 900 to keep my 4890 & internals cool? Even 2nd hand I don't mind as I've only got some Coolermaster 92mm ones which don't fit.

    It was an impulse buy really, was looking at the Antec 900 rev2 but couldn't afford the extra £30 odd. I also saw the Antec 1200 and man its first time i've seen a case that big in the flesh, its friggin HUGE (and pricey).

    I've been considering a new case, but I have better things to dump £90 on.

    Vodka is my friend :D Some very hot girls I know like to drink it trying to show they can keep pace with me, of course, they can't, but what do I care? They are hot and once they sunk a Vodka or 2 they insist on me playing with their breasts :D

    I can't drink much :p I see that as an advantage because I have to spend less to get drunk :D I blame my skinny ass and the fact I dont eat much.

    True, i could of spent the money on other stuff but my other cases have been ripped apert and were never assembled fully. I wanted something that didn't need to be modded heavily for my needs.
    Next upgrade will be ati's new gen cards then thats it, i'll try to be happy for a while with what i got.
    I'm also in 2 minds atm about parting out rig 2.

    I agree with you on the smilies Ket, they really need updating/adding to.

    I tried getting smilies added, but had a few "pro professional" people start whining. Even after pointing the very fact out this forum is NOT professional, nor will it ever be for 3 main reasons. 1. You don't see any name in the url like Asus, Mushkin, BOC, etc. 2. This forum was originally created as a enthusiast forum, forgetting their roots is not the way to go. 3. People can either choose to use smilies or not to, have them there for those who want to use them, and those who don't won't. Despite all that it still fell on deaf ears.

    Alex,if you must buy cathodes,buy the optx ones from scan,they are really very good,also they do some great leds.They have 3/6/9/12" cathodes,they are much better quality than any others i found,and i think have a 12mth warranty.

    I have a ebuyer cathode in my case, its very good quality. Been using it for months and its not dimmed or showed any signs of burning out.

    I've tried lots of differant cathodes,the best ones with no doubt are the optx ones.They sell a cool little molex powered box too with 4x 12v outputs,makes it so easy to power mulitple tubes from one molex,its switched too.

    Must look in my box of junk in the loft, fairly sure I've got some cathodes in there that I bought about 5 years ago.

    Multi colour jobbies too <spew>
