    I'm really not liking the position of my D14 in this FT02, especially with s2011. The socket forces the heatsink to be in the middle of the case.

    Anyone with a H60/H80 or similar want to swap :p

    What's the best keyboard around at the moment to spend around £80 on?

    I'd personally like something with backlit keys (ideally switchable between colours but red/orange is a must) also mechanical keys wouldn't go a miss either. I've got to ask advice on this as the only keyboards I've ever owned haven't really been all that great although I'm loving what I have at the moment, it just doesn't light up aha.

    Mechanical keys should always be highest priority :D I never really suggest razer products, but my Black Widow does it's job and it's backlit. Saitek keyboards are good (and have orange backlit) and so are logitech G series keyboards. Those are always the first ones I check.

    The one I keep going back to look at is the Logitech G510, Saitek would be nice just to match up with my R.A.T mouse but I won't let that persuade me, didn't even look at the Black Widow until now... Looks wise it's what I'd probably go with but what are the real advantages of having an LCD screen on your keyboard? That may persuade me...

    I have a G9X. I like the feel of it. Finally Logitech released new software and drivers that doi not lock up my system,. The original software on cd was incompatible. I was using only the generic mouse driver for a good while. I am not much of a gamer as all the new action games
    require memorizing keystrokes, not just the mouse. That is a bit too much for me.

    Went and got the G510 along with a Razer Sphex :D Won't actually be getting until Christmas though :eek:

    As for the friend who was suppose to be coming down with the "broken" GPU hasn't even been in touch??

    G510 is a good keyboard, one of my friends at uni is using it along with a g9x :)
    Guess it's fine then?

    I had a little feel of the keyboard and others in the shop, none of them felt all that different from what I'm currently using except one major thing, the keys feel a lot firmer like they're not going to come loose over time. :)

    I have no idea what to think about the GPU I sold him, it was a good card for me and as stated temperatures was never an issue. Just strange how almost 6 weeks after selling it him he complains about it, says he is going to bring it down but not only doesn't show but also no contact from him whatsoever even though I've seen him around online.


    On another note: I need a new headset looking to spend around £30 so any suggestions?

    Couldnt be happier with my Creative Fatality, epic cushioning xD
    It's been 6 weeks, and if the card crapped out after that period of time, it's not your fault, that's more than non warranty card dealers would give as a grace period, 30days and all that. Tell him to sort his hot pc out.

    In other news, while i was looking at the corsair high air pressure fans for my H80, i started look at this:
    http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B008XC2546/?tag=tec053-21
    though i reckon my NZXT case might still be superior.

    Suppose, I just feel bad that he's a friend if it was anyone else then like you say that "grace period" has well and truly been & gone.

    Those Fatalitys have got some great reviews from what I'm reading... I may end up with those!

    Well if he does get in touch, give it a clean, maybe go as far as to replace the TIM, and then test it in your system by running a benchmark like furrytesselation (can be run permanently unless you press esc) and keep your eyes on the temps. If they stay below the safe temp of say, 80 degrees, then it's his problem, and not yours.

    Using Creative Fatality HS800 now, its ok for the price but don't expect wonders. I am using UE TF10 as my daily wear, so my judgement is pretty biased.

    Just had a message from that friend but I think I should be concerned...

    But yet he's on Steam right now playing Dota 2.

    :fear:

    Wow. Some Friend.... Just keep offering to test in your system, he'll either give up or will agree, when he does you can see the issue for yourself. I'm thinking he has found a better deal somewhere now wants to give it back to you...

    Anyone want a Dota 2 code, i have 2 spare.... i haven't tried the game anyway....

    When I was checking to see what games he owns and when he last played them and such I noticed that apparently I already own a beta code as Steam didn't say anything other than "play now"... I'm just confused as hell to where it's come from :roll:

    By the way, I'm still rocking that StealthXstream II I had from you awhile back :rockout:

    Just replaced my Cougar Turbines on my H80 for two of the new Corsair High Pressure series. Temps went from a max of 54 to a max of 45 :D
