    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    Hi guys, so here's the deal: got a virgin media hub 3, Wi-Fi is terrible (signal dropping off, bad reception 2 rooms away). What I would like to do is make it better on a budget. Does anyone have any recommendations on the subject? House has 2 floors and is of medium size. If you require more...

    I turn off in-game music...do you?

    Mostly depends on the game. Doom (2016) I couldn't possibly play without the in-game soundtrack. Racing games - I usually play something else from other sources, however just finished the career in need for speed underground (2003) while listening to the in-game soundtrack - instant return back...

    Can Seagate's Barracuda be trusted for data now a days?

    I've been using a 4TB Seagate drive for the better part of 4 years now, and it wasn't new when I bought it. Zero performance or health issues. Second drive I use is a 2TB Hitachi, previously used in some kind of enterprise setting as it had high power-on hours but minimal power-on/off cycles...

    Obsidian game - The Outer Worlds Announced

    Is it just me or does it have a fallouty-borderlandsy-something else vibe to it? I'd play it.

    PSU fault?

    Yep, cleared and reset it countless times, no progress. I guess that's what's left now, I'll post an update once I test it. Thanks for trying though.

    PSU fault?

    Yes, that was the first thing I tried, same behaviour.

    PSU fault?

    Socket is clean, all pins are ok. I have tried to boot it up with just one stick of ram, same behaviour. After these shutdowns it doesn't react to the power buttons (both the onboard ones and case ones) even if I hold them pressed. Now it doesn't even boot into Windows.

    PSU fault?

    I've ordered an EVGA 850 GQ to see if the PSU is the issue. Ran stress tests again, on the old system - no issues. This is not fun at all. In the meantime, will try the minimal hardware approach, as suggested. Edit: another way to get it to post is to press the clear cmos button and then reset

    PSU fault?

    Hello guys, usually I try to solve all my issues on my own and by searching the internet and the forum. This time though I need some advice from the best, hence my post. I used to run an i5 4590 on a h81 motherboard, with 16GB DDR3 RAM and a gtx 970 (+150 core and +250 mem) The PSU is a evga...

    What's on your hardware wish list ?

    - A GPU to replace my GTX 970 - A 60+ Hz monitor - A 256+ GB SSD - A canon 200d camera - A new phone to replace my Galaxy Note 3 It's a good thing I can control the impulse to buy stuff (most of the times anyway).
