    nope i did not. Nowhere near £400.

    that is stupidly expensive though, I wouldnt even consider buying it. Its even cheaper to buy the thing from a seller from Hong Kong on Ebay.

    That makes sense now

    If only shops told you how many of an object they'd sold, i'd love to see if anyone actually paid £400 for that

    High grade(1:144) is the cheapest of the lot :slap: You can get them for £10-15. Next step is the Real Grade(1:144), for about £20. Then Master Grade (1:100), anything from about £25 to £100. And then Perfect Grade(1:60), upwards of £100 to about £250.

    If you are going for Gundam Age kits, they sell for under £1 in Japan. Forums had the pic, but I dont have them.

    sorry my bad - I was on about master grades being £50-60ish

    I would very much like a few more perfect grades to my collection.

    No offence, but really? You must really love the series.

    Besides tech, i don't really have a hobby. Unless you can class the pub etc. as a hobby...

    No, I don't really like the series. But the models are awesome, I kid you not.

    well.....Ive been a mega fan of most things Gundam since i was in high school :cool::cool:

    what can i say? I love giant robots!! but in most cases its more of the designs that I like then just the anime.

    Its no different then your grandfathers who loved building hornby trainsets or WWI & WWII tanks, ships & fighter planes.

    and just like building a PC - time goes into building it once youve unboxed it. you can choose to customise it a little with a craft knife or scalpel and etch your own small designs on the models or you can just give them different paint jobs. then the standard colours of the plastic they come in.

    I love gundam but i dont limit myself to that genre alone - I have 2 armoured core models and I probably going to get some Macross ones at a later stage, but first i need my own place so i can put all these babys in a glass cabinet away from dust and parents knocking shit over and breaking it when they do house keeping (R.I.P Full Armour Z.Z :( )

    Ive been looking for a Laserdisc player but difficult to find anything locally, postage is killer. Just for collecting and the awesome factor.

    Recently got myself a Phanteks cooler which is a total beast. A blade snapped clean off one of its included fans. Was purely an accident but hopefully i get a replacement soon, still runs great even with one fan as its hovering at around 28-31c at idle on 4ghz.

    Sooooooooo I completely forgot to test my replacement 2500k from Intel when I RMA'd my last one a couple of months ago and have just been running the same settings for OC as the last one, which for an i5 needed a lot of voltage for 4.5GHZ (1.36-1.38) well I just found out this chip will do 4.5 at .05v less and am running 4.7GHZ at the same voltage as the previous, might push my luck and aim for 4.8/4.9 with the same voltage too :rockout:

    Its a good un if you can do 4.9@1.38v

    get yourself something like a Corsair H70 or H80, switch the fans on it to AP-15 Scythe GT's and highfives all around

    does my motherboard look like it'll do anything like 4.8GHZ?

    Might do, id say it really depends on the chip itself and how much voltage it requires.

    Thinking of selling my main rig and maybe going with an A8-3850 mini itx build, not really using my pc for anything these days to really justify it and the APU should be fine for casual gaming

    Just made a mitx system with an a6-3500, 500gb 7200rpm sata2 hdd, and 2*2gb 1600 9-9-9-24 ram for y mum. Impressive and snappy, windows installed real quick, not tried any games but it is not bad at all by all accounts.

    For the price it seems really good and if you can cool ok overclocking seems to be epic... to the extent that you should prolly get the a8-3800 and just clock that byach!

    edit: with stock cooler my apu was getting to like 55c 3*100% load @ 2.1ghz in a mitx case (looks good for cooling) so you will need some ok cooling i reckon... though undervolting should be easy
