    Well that was a fucking shambles, 2-1 up and the Czechs get a penalty that was never a penalty then we are denied one at the end. I guess it was still worth going to the game, it was decent up till then. Great atmosphere but shite end to the Scotland game.

    Wasn't someone here trying to get hold of Reefer69? I'm sure I remember someone trying to get in touch with him about something. Can't remember though :laugh:

    The Antec ones? I've got a couple floating about somewhere. They were just the spare cables from PSU's; I wasn't doing them custom or anything.

    {UZA} DOA does them; from US though. I can do them custom if you buy the bits; or you can just go for the ready-made sleeved extensions. Custom sleeving doesn't work out any cheaper when you factor in the cost of the wire, pins and connector blocks anyway so I think I'm looking at the ready-made ones.

    I just bought 2 of 2TB Seagate ST2000DL003 Barracuda G, because I ran out of space on my 2TB (Hitachi 7200) hard drive. I'm hoping to run them in Raid 0 and copy my stuff over. Does anyone have any experience with these drives or similar in raid? I'm planning to plug them into my Sata 3 ports on my P67 mobo and see how these babies fly.

    Just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice since this was a bit of an impulse buy (Scan Today Only). A lot of people swear by the F4EG but these might be better?

    Cheers

    why do you need tips on hard drives?

    they're hard drives, they either work or don't work, it's your motherboards raid controller that'll be more difficult

    Acer Aspire 5560 Laptop - Laptops | Ebuyer.com <- really good graphics in a £400 laptop

    since it's an AMD A-series you should even be able to run the integrated graphics and dedicated graphics in crossfire as well if your lucky, and then you have something like 800 shaders in a £400 laptop

    Just got offered a Samsung Galaxy SII for £25 a month by 3, i know 3 are shit but they have fast 3G and a price that makes me forget how shit they are! I wonder if i can get him to drop the amount of texts and mins and give me a cheaper deal. Thats £600 total on a 24month contract, £600 is a lot id like somewhere closer to £500 so if they can do £20 or 21 ima well take that!

    At least by 24months time the Galaxy S2 shouldn't be out of date that much. I still see people on iphone 3G and shit.

    @Freedom - Hows the case hunting mate? Oh btw they changed the fans on the 600T to faster better fans so maybe they did that on later 650D models. The Front fan was a problem on the original 600T and now its fine, the white 600T for example all have the new fans.

    HEH some people are just assholes for the sake of being an asshole. There is a difference between asking something and saying something. I dont get why people continue to post after an argument is done. BTW there is a report button people can use.

    EDIT: Well thats me took a contract on the Sammy SII, got 500mins 5000texts and 1gb of data for £20 a month free handset. Nice as i can just use the wifi in the house if im downloading an app or update. 5000texts is way to much but i can just text a lot to save on mins. The dude on the phone offered 2000mins and 5000texts and all you can eat data for £25 a month but i would rather save the £100 and take less mins.

    Ive finally decided on a Define XL - but been talking to Crazyeyesreaper as hes modding up the same case. so ive got a small insight on what need changing to make the case good.

    However if they changed the fans on the 650D then that would still get my vote as id be spending MORE to give the XL case better air flow.

    Im doing more or less the samething as crazyeyesreaper but except for the spraypaint and decals.

    who are we talking about?

    p0Pe?

    you shouldn't argue with these people, if he wants to take your post's out of context then that's his problem

    don't lower yourself to their level

    yeps. He was the one arguing. I was just making a point. but lets leave it at that anyway. IMO he should have been infracted for carrying on the argument, when i had already dropped it.

    Anyway Brb. need to head to post office to drop some stuff off for reefer

    Ill have a search and see if they improved the fans on the 650D too. Yeah i saw crazys thread seems like a lot of work but a lot of cases have terrible stock fans anyway. I did say before but i reccomend Noiseblocker fans IMO they are as good if not better than Noctua but availability drives up the prices of the Noiseblockers.

    Unfortunately i dont think they ever did change the fans on the 650D, like you said they are 1000 RPM 92CFM airflow. Looks they offer a free kit for the case which i think is just fan mounts.

    reaper was recommending Yate loon Mediums but we cant get them over here. they cost about $3-7 in the U.S which coverts into about £3-5. they are selling them on Ebay for $10 which is £6.11. and thats before postage is even calculated i think.

    for about £5 each ive found me some sharkoon fans that have the sam spec. but run a little faster and noiser but thats ok, because its all being hooked up to a fan controller anyway

    Oh definitely id take that fan for FREE like you got if i remember. £16 is a lot for one fan especially if you need to buy a few of them, that's why i can never recommend Noiseblockers as they are just fucking expensive. I think i was lucky to get mine for cheap.

    Seems all the good 140mm are over £10 so price wise those Sharkoons seem to worth a punt 1500rpm shouldnt be that loud but might push a bit of air as bigger the fans more air they push unless your Corsair where a 120mm beats a 200mm lol
