    Trying to find a reference 780 spec sheet that has the mounting hole diameters labelled. I found the Peter's mounting hole diameters, just trying to cross reference.

    Literally scouring google with about 10 different search terms and there is no specification of the reference 780 board's mounting dimensions. How can nobody have checked?

    according to the internet the mounts are the same as the 680... can't confirm this though.

    I think we saw the same forum post. Haven't checked 680 mount diameters, hopefully they're not as difficult to find as the 780's.

    lol, no. :laugh:

    Even with your advice I couldn't. My Titan was stable at 1126Mhz on 1.2v with the SVL7 bios but I wanted more. I've now been up to 1347MHz at 1.3v and ran through valley with temps at 48 degrees (hydro copper from Scan at £647). Currently gaming sedately at 1176Mhz at 1.18 but could easily game higher - but not required.

    And my Titan.... I might put it for sale or I might be Like RCoon and make it a competition prize..... I'll see how my bank balance is next pay check. I'm not rich, it's just the awesome combination of the Scottish housing market and having no kids and a very understanding wife. :D

    If I do sell it it will be no more than £400 (with ekwb, backplate and original cooler).

    So I finally got around to pulling my Silverstone SG07 into the office and giving it a clean and testing the PSU. Congratulations to me, my £160 paperweight is now useful again! It's in ace condition bar some scratches to the inner metal framework from my titan sized GPU cooler, and the PSU works (Thank God). Only problem I have now, I literally have no use for it. It's ITX, I even have a slim DVD drive for it, and it was expensive, and it has a really great 600W Bronze Silverstone PSU in it with 2 x 8pins!

    I was tempted to run a giveaway again for it, or even it and the PSU seperately as it supports the short ATX PSU's of normal PC's. Problem it it would cost a fortune to ship, and I'd rather not put that on anyone unfortunate enough to not afford it.

    Anyone got any ideas? Anyone have any interest in one?

    You want 150 250GB HDD's that are 3 years old minimum? Smart data has been checked on all of them, there are around 10% smart data casualties but they all still work. That being said, they're old platter design. If anybody genuinely wants a couple fully functioning 100% checked, I don't mind sending some off for postage costs.

    I wouldnt know what to do with them sadly. Id happily grab a few for a NAS set up but im currently on the fence when it comes to buying more hardware. Had i bought a HP micro-server then it might have been a different story.

    We're struggling to use them too. We've set up about a dozen triple HDD 750GB RAID 0 arrays for the lulz with less than important data, beyond that there isn't much else we can think of. We tried making robots with disk platters, but we're not so good at the creative stuff.

    Sweet! No hurry though! Would you look for one's without bad sectors or are all of these doomed to some degree?

    All of the drives are fully functional, I didn't label them all, but they've all been Secure Erased and have Smart Data relating to old age only. I've got 5 boxed up for you. I'm pretty positive they're all fully functional, and if they aren't I'm more than happy to send you replacements.
    I'll try to post them tomorrow and scan you in a receipt for postage. Box might be too big for RM Small Parcels delivery so it'll probably be sent on ParcelForce.

    Just PM me your name and address

    Hey guys, not posted on here for months but gonna try and get back into the swing of things, the last few months of last year were torment for me as have the first few months of this year but hopefully I'm on the up again now. In short I fell into a very bad cycle of drinking and depression and lost a lot of things in my life (job, car and GF) because of it all. It's getting better now I'm done with the self loathing and feeling sorry for myself, and it help-s BIG time getting laid now and again, man thats the only thing I miss regular from a relationship lol Haven't really had the urge to come on to the forums since I hit rock bottom but I'm gonna give it a go again. So, WTF have I missed?

    A tonne of new members have joined, some of them are some ace guys, the rest are illiterate trolls that contribute nothing other than childish opinion. Oh and the usual BS of gpu companies not really producing anything new, just stacking them together and charging triple their worth. Same old! You missed some nice giveaways though! Glad to hear things are on the way up for you. I remember hearing about your partners troll parents and what not.

    @d1nky & @Bo$$ just heading down to the post office now, will PM you guys with postage receipts.

    @NdMk2o1o what is your preferred make of HDD's? I got a buttload of Maxtor and Hitachi's, not so many Seagates anymore, but enough to send a couple.
