    It should have been that price a lot earlier than that. the 6xx series was better priced until last week when card prices got into gear, and like i said, months ago an i5 3570k was the same price as an 8350. It's just a response to intel and nvidia, albeit a late one.

    I only RAID 0 when the drives are low capacity and crap and use it for games. That way I dont mind if they fail because the data is easily retrieved (from steam/origin) and then I'm not wasting a good 1TB that could hold my important data for years to come.

    RCoon,

    Why don't you measure the inductance and get another one with same value ? if you have access to a signal generator and an oscilloscope, you can easily create an RL high pass filter, measure the cut-off frequency and calculate the inductance from it.

    I dunno what else i can do with the extra WD black drive then, (I say extra but they are a matched pair) At least one of them will be completely dedicated to games instead of just having its own partition. Most of my games with the exception of BF3 are currently running on the WD Black.

    to simply just use it as a dump drive seems a bit of a waste for something thats supposed to be one of the fastest mechanical hard drives out there


    ::EDIT::

    One does not simply use a WD Black as a dumpdrive!

    Have you seen the price of the 4TB Blacks?!

    No point - All its storing is game data, nothing that cant be re-downloaded after a few hours on a 70mb connection.

    Im still unsure about running the toshiba hard drives in Raid 0 on the NAS - Im terrified if i load data on it only to have one or both fail after a few days/weeks/months and lose everything, At the same time Raid 0 would be a bit of a no brainer in a sense as my network is limited to 100mb unless i upgrade my AmpedWireless wi-fi booster but that would cost some serious money to upgrade it

    the NAS is mainly just a place i can dump my media collection so i have access to my anime, music and whatever movies i download on whatever device i choose to use around the house. The fact that it comes with Print server functionality is a bonus

    I guess I'll figure it all out when it all gets here.

    ::EDIT::

    actually totally disregard this, Im a complete nubcake and I realised i can put a gigabit switch between my PC and the wifi booster. Now all i need is some Cat5e or cat6 network cable.

    Fill it with porn!!! 4TBs of it then stream it like a boss. Show yo kids, show yo wife and show it to the neighbours kids when they leave the house to buy ice cream! Share your password with the whole street - tits and ass for the entire family!

    The great thing about Synology is their control software allows you to do so much with the NAS, within reason the options are almost endless.

    Well... I guess Im gonna be working my ass off till christmas - the entire NAS setup cost me £360.66 On top of that i have like £600 on my creditcard that needs paying and i think I still have one more payment of £110 to make on my 680s. Everytime time I think ive come to the end of paying off one item, another hops onto my lap and says BUY ME!!

    a 3770k on my stupid loop would do me ok.

    paired with either a 780, or pair of decent clocking 7950s or maybe just maybe a hd9970 (whatever it is)

    my friends got a 3930k and getting an overkill loop this week, the thing flies with just a 7970. does something like 5ghz on air at 1.35v

    theres so much choice, so in the meantime im getting my loop complete! and I need a car and stop drinking tbh!

    5ghz is highly impossible on a 3930k unless LN2, They just eat up too much voltage - All of them do. Im sitting around 1.38v and the best i could do was 4.6Ghz. Increasing the volts anymore doesnt do anything but create more heat.

    Maaaaan I hate having to wait for deliveries... Its like being on the bench, You cant do nothing but watch the game until you get called up.

    Left ebuyer an Enote as I had 3 different orders - I'm an indecisive freak. Im asking them if i can bundle all my orders into the same delivery for next day. so that would be the NAS, 3x3TB hard drives & 1x USB 3.0 docking bay. Probably gonna cost me another £10-20 ontop to ship next day, but the rest of my networking stuff should arrive later today and im getting impatient even though just getting out of bed 15mins ago.

    IDLE HANDS - THAT IS ALL

    Idle hands. Many things can be done about that.

    Also dont expect Ebuyer to be useful in terms of delivery, and dont call them up unless you want to talk to the most useless woman I've encountered in terms of order and delivery support. I ordered before their cutoff time and paid for next day. I got my order 4 days later... (granted two of those days were a sunday and a bank holiday monday), but the delivery page quite clearly said next day Saturday.

    I'm trying not to spend any money, I get paid in 3 weeks and will still be in negative double digits until October pay day, then I finally get back on top of a normal money situation. Sucks2bpoor. Unless of course Ebuyer eventually decides to DO SOMETHING WITH MY RMA. It's STILL pending management referral. I wish they would just say yes or no...

    Ah that sucks man :(
    Friend of mine for the last 5 years is now doing her second year of degree and is working locally as a nurse. Needless to say we've had our fair share of fun lately, and she's invited me to stay at her place on the weekends when she's at uni. Best part is, its not a relationship.

    She said she always wanted to hit up with a teacher, I was more than happy to oblige.
    I hear there's plenty of trainee police around nowadays, especially in my county at least. I'm sure I have some fluffy handcuffs somewhere.
