The Asus Prime Pro X370 and the Asrock Killer X370. what are your guys thouhgts between the two and what RAM would you put with the board, budget restricted for now...

    i5 8400 or Ryzen 1600

    Wow what did I create by asking my question! :D Took me a fair while to read through all the comments but thank you for them. So far you guys between you sound exactly like what I've been thinking on the subject. So still no closer to a decision. I almost feel like I should go with the Intel...

    i5 8400 or Ryzen 1600

    Either I go for will have a future CPU upgrade, Zen 2 on the AMD side and as I mentioned for the Intel it would have to be the currently released 8700K so I higher end board on either platform is something I'm kean on anyway.

    i5 8400 or Ryzen 1600

    I'm pretty torn, I was set on Ryzen until Coffee Lake got released! I don't upgrade my rig very often, I do plan on upgrading the CPU in a few years though, that's why I wanted Ryzen in the first place as I knew Zen 2 will offer more. Now I'm thinking how much more can Zen 2 actually offer? Will...

    New PSU - Help Choosing, please.

    So before my death trap of a PSU fries my rig I'm getting an upgrade! Hopefully by the end of tonight it'll be ordered. I'm just stumped to as which one I should be choosing? I was originally looking at the EVGA SuperNova NEX650 G(1) but from what I've recently read the ripple it has had in the...

    Pulled some 24pin cables.

    so I accidently made a big error when taking out the white bar inside the NZXT S340 (to make it easy to wrap), I've pulled on two of the 24pin ATX cables and now they aren't in the socket at all, could anyone help me with a correct diagram or something to help me connect the two wires back in...

    Windows 8 key troubles

    So I left the Windows installing I downloaded from earlier and installed/activated without any issues at all! ... I don't know how but I always experience the stupidest of problems, I only had to reinstall because an install of BitDefender 2014 screwed with my OS and locked the drive!

    Windows 8 key troubles

    Yeah it's a perfectly legit ISO from MS when I actually ordered Windows 8, I've done a fresh install of the OS 3 times now since then (December 2012) and this is the first time I've encounted any kind of problem like this :/ I'm just downloading another copy from MS and going to go with another...

    Windows 8 key troubles

    When I first brought my Windows 8 product key from the MS store I was able to use that key for a clean install of the OS and now it won't, apparently it's just an upgrade key so it says?

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    Aha, never heard that one before... Got a feeling I could be quoting that a lot from now on, don't know if you've followed one of my older threads :Stuarts Rig? He isn't that great when it comes to being safe online and most I know can be just as bad! Think I'll give BitDefender a try as that's...

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    It's not so much for me, but I've noticed a real difference in the rate of repairs I have since installing Kaspersky, obviously the repairs are usually virus related thus would like adequate protection to make my busy life that little less busy.

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    I'm stuck between Bit Defender & Kaspersky which would you go for and where's the cheapest place to buy either from?

    A few simple Powerline questions...

    that sucks for me, all the sockets in this house are single sockets and aren't very well placed around the house at all! Meh...

    A few simple Powerline questions...

    What's this about they shouldn't be used with surge protected (power) extension leads/plugs?

    A few simple Powerline questions...

    sounds like its just as simple as i thought, which is always good news! As for the circuitry that will be fine too as there is only my kitchen that is on a separate circuit. On a side note, when did TPU get the new look? I love it on my mobile now!

    A few simple Powerline questions...

    I'm thinking of buying a powerline kit but before I do there is a couple of things that I'd like to know, if I buy a starter kit how easy is it to add to that? And if I did would I just go buy another adapter and plug in the wall + device or is there more to it than that? All help/tips would...

    Asus X551C wont boot

    So I was able to figure out how to get UEFI bios to boot from disc but I'm still stuck with the same problem, weather I try loading from the disc or HDD it freezes after particular loading points, ie: shortly after the windows loading screen when the screen goes black. The laptop is less than a...

    NTLDR is missing!

    That stuff was self-installing malware/spyware etc. fixboot didn't work either, checked the BIOS and all is well there. I guess I'm just going to have to back up the data.
