    Microsoft Moves to Permanently Close Physical Shops

    Yep. I'm happy the Sydney one is staying open, their community events and workshops are sometimes pretty cool. Frankly I thought it was mostly run as an 'Experience Store' anyway.

    What is the oldest piece of continually running hardware you currently use with your rig?

    For sure, my frankensteined Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 sound system. My old man gave it to me over 10 years ago after he had it for 5 years or so and moved on to proper home-theatre stuff. The only thing left original is the subwoofer, I've swapped out the speakers to Tannoy SFX 5.1.....which...

    CPU Heatsink Opinions

    PSU is OK (i thought it might be the PSU too) as I've tested it outside of the case - doesn't even get warm. The problem is that I only have 1 120mm exhaust fan which doesn't cut it and because of this, the hot air from the GPU and CPU can't escape well enough and is forced to go through the...

    CPU Heatsink Opinions

    Hey peeps, I have a Corsair 280X case on order as my In Win 301 just isn't cutting for cooling :( . My PSU is getting cooked - almost too hot to touch. I've tried many different fan layouts and adding/removing case fans with limited improvements. I currently use a Noctua D15S and have added a...
