    these are cables which are pretty much fail safe as they aren't even for power, so if it doesn't work demand a refund... plus what are the chances a SATA cable is gonna be faulty

    what did you order anyway?

    knowing my luck lately, 110%, and if i'm lucky they'll arrive on fire (this year i've been through a phone, nearly every major component in my PC, 2 sets of headphones and an alarm clock, and that's just the things i couldn't fix myself :()

    something for their car, can't really remember, something about foglights, i think

    nah, that would be scam with his sleeving fetish

    On a more serious note, does anyone know how to increase the sound quality on a Bluetooth headset?

    cheesy, there's not much that can go wrong with a SATA cable :p You won't go wrong with ebay as long as you have at least a tiny amount of common sense.

    I've bought those SATA cables before, and I've bought loads of stuff off of cheesefeat (the seller who's selling them on ebay). Don't be so scared of ebay just because one person had a problem once! That's just silly!

    You remind me of a geezer who came on TPU asking for help but refused to use any free apps like CCleaner or Malware Bytes. He only wanted to use paid apps :laugh:

    Oh, that was me :p I'm going through a dispute with the seller at the moment. But that was an item that was listed as "faulty" but seller said it works etc. etc.

    Don't know if you mean me, but yea that happened to me anyway and because I have common sense, nothing's going in the sense that I'm losing out or anything ;)

    it's not the only problem i've had with Ebay, i'd prefer to just use actual shops/etailers and know exactly who i'm dealing with/who to shout at when it goes wrong

    EDIT: Look at this , radeon 5650 and core I procesor for £339 http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/del...radeon-hd5650-graphics-339-dabs-quidco/984321, if only i had money...

    Same here, (I prefer proper shops and etailers) but ebay is good for items you simply can't get anywhere else (other than China) like those "Horizontal Right Angle Cables" I linked.
    I've even got one spare here I can send you if you like. Bought two of them but I only need one now. But that's something for PM. If you want one without having to go through ebay, let me know.

    Good news!

    Since, as of tommorow, My motherboard is going on a trip to yorkshire, i am now using a laptop i borrowed, and have updated my system specs accordingly

    I'm thinking of getting my own laptop though, the dell outlet has some amazing deals at the moment, although to be fair it'll probably have to wait till Christmas before i get a laptop

    i've been to yorkshire many times, and there is no technology their whatsoever, so i think the locals might be in for a small shock

    i picked myself up an am3 mobo today,an asus m4a79td evo,its crap i hate it and i wish i could just solder ddr3 slots onto my destroyer and it would work :(

    on the upside though it only cost £20 and the ddr3 i picked up a while ago performs quite well :D
    does anyone have knowledge on LLC and wether it could hold back an OC?
