    I havent had cognac since i was 16 or something..... My mum used to have her own stash of port and tia maria. Needless to say I had a bit of both. I say a bit but i think I was the reason she stopped buying any sort of alcohol completely.

    I cant remember if tia maria had a sharper taste, or at least i think it did. Though, I wasnt completely in the mood to get totally munted. though i never seem to be these days.

    Had a wander around a large church antiques fair, and found myself a cut crystal decanter. Rather fell in love with it, and spent my PC upgrade money getting a hold of one. Currently inside is the leftovers of my Penderyn:

    Hah, nah, I've decided I'm going to save money for a few months and upgrade to haswell E and do it all properly, might take me a while but it will be worth it to not upgrade for a long time, need a new case though, and hoping to drop an 880 in there too.

    Least it was cheap! Trust me, I feel your pain. You remember when I pulled off an inductor on my 780? Issue was that was 550 worth of GPU!

    I'll say this though, since I got out the water game and crazy over clocking, I've been much more happy with my computer systems and gaming since. Upgrading is awesome, but sometimes you feel like you're dropping money on the wrong things once it gets to the stage of things going wrong. Makes you wonder what else you can achieve with those funds. I'm not telling you to stop, do whatever you enjoy and makes you happy. But when it stops being a happy hobby, then it's time to slow down.

    I know exactly how ya feel, this last month or 2. ive killed a mvf, 3770k, 7970 just from trying to get practice at some ln2, getting bored and screwing things up.

    Im going to have a good clear out of all the junk around here and keep it simply gaming and some benching.

    Im hoping that this card will still xfire as it boots but doesnt display. Maybe buy the other and xfire them as 280xs. then leave it all alone.

    Sick and tired of constantly recommending solid quality Gold PSU's to people and not having one. I shall be purchasing one next week, just not sure which one is best. I'd say money is not an issue, but I'm not spending more then £90-£100 on this thing.

    Been looking at the Seasonic made XFX XTR 650 and the Corsair RM650 and the CS650M. Open to suggestions, I'll be checking reviews for any cons. Unfortunately Seasonic PSU's are only available from Scan and they don't have very many. Wanted a G-Series 650 but they're hard to get hold of, and where available, stupidly expensive.

    ive got a msi bigbang z77 mpower coming for my 3770k RMA, which they been phoning me all day about saying ive tampered with it and its been glued (ie delidded) but the (someone elses chip) they sent me as a replacement has been delidded. im fucking furious, the chip i got new was in a sealed box, brand new and only abused by volts. the guy on the phone could hardly talk any english. he said they cant do a replacement for ^^ that reason.

    I said mine was perfectly intact and the one you sent me was tampered with, not my chip. totally different FPO and obvious signs of glue. he said he'll investigate it..... morons!!!!

    also found a repair shop that had some sort of micro solder machine in the window, looks like it replaces caps or something, so may try get this matrix back to life.

    also @freedom, i probably wont be having your 680. found some lightnings that i may have for a black and yellow build. (and not so much abuse till im rich)
