    Contemplating Upgrades

    Just to update people with where I got to with this. Basically got a new case with an AIO cooler. Got some more memory nice and cheap, and pushed the overclock a bit more. Moved my Windows install to a faster 120GB SSD I had, didnt know it was faster till I bench marked it and realised...

    Contemplating Upgrades

    Interesting suggestions people. Thank you! I was expecting people to be slating the FX. Would bumping up to 16GB RAM, a 1060 6GB and if possible push the CPU more with better cooling see me net better performance? It is possible I had expected the RX 470 to be better than what it is...

    Razer Reaffirms Commitment to Support Mac Users

    I guess this is in some way related to Valve providing Steam and Source based games for the Mac. I have the Deathadder Mac edition but only because the white led matches my screen leds and keyboard :P

    How to hook a car amp up to your PC

    I would NOT recommend using the PSU to power BOTH the amp and pc. You could take the whole lot with it! A separate PSU with a large current rating on the 12V rail. I have a home made sub-woofer using a car amp to power it with my hifi speakers. I measured the current that my amp drew at the...

    DIY sewer sub. 6" of DIY powah!

    Yeh I know, don't worry I haven't done it like the initial drawings. Main speakers are driven normally and the low level headphone out is then connected to the RCA on the sub amp. Works a treat.

    DIY sewer sub. 6" of DIY powah!

    Good work man, although I prefer the sound of an infinite baffle instead of a tuned ported sub. I did some work over the summer on a sub-woofer for my pc and hifi gear. http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=101818 Sounds fantastic no matter what the music is, nice deep bass with a tight...

    PS3 Gets 3D

    Iv read that the people working towards a standard 3D bluray format are targeting the PS3 as a 100% compatible. To me this says you do not need a 120Hz tv etc. PS3 has HDMI 1.3 which supports upto 60Hz, HDMI 1.4 when finished should support greater refresh rates. So surely for the PS3 to work...

    Win 7 Pros&Cons

    If you don't like the small square tabs on the task bar and would prefer it like vista. Then right click the task bar and hit properties, and change the Taskbar buttons option to; Never combine or combine when full. I myself prefer this.

    [FS][EU] [UK] - Corsair XMS2 PC6400 800MHz RAM and Intel Core2Duo E4500 CPU.

    I did notice the price had gone up recently, but a quick look on ebay showed there wasnt much interest at a higher price point, and would like a pretty quick sale. Prices have now been adjusted slightly. Cheers to those who have given me a heads up on this :) Nick you have another pm.

    I believe your hosted Avatar The Game Demo has a virus.

    Without an anti-virus running, you wouldn't know if you have a virus or not. Something behaving not quite right maybe a sign, but some act silently. If the checksum is correct then there is little chance of it having a virus or any other differences.
