When I get back from my cruise, I will list my bits and pieces to go into the raffle, I have a couple of opticals, an IDE HDD and a 600W single rail PSU to put in, all just gathering dust, winners will just pay for postage, don't enter if you don't wanna pay!

To keep it fair, only registered club members as of today can enter..... having said that I won't be here for 2 weeks to add anybody anyways. Might through in an old games console as well for nostalgia and an added bonus!
I'll add some prizes to that. I'll have a route and see what i have left :)

As I said earlier, the Raffle is for this club so yes.... UK only. Tickets are free (well the cost of a PM :)) When I get back I will post here and invite members to PM me with the words "Raffle", I will leave this open for 5 days so that members who can't get on much still have some chance of seeing the post....... one entry per member.

At the end of that week, I will put all the names in a hat/tin/box/ whatever...... and if there are 5 items, I will draw 5 names, 1st out will be for the PSU (for example), 2nd for the IDE HDD etc etc. If any winner does not want the item (and therefore waste their hard earned on postage), I will pull another name out.

I fly tomorrow and will be back Saturday 12th Feb, so this will probably start Monday 14th Feb.

That will cover the postage of the PSU at least :laugh: It's only a budget one, albeit it's decent and stable, I used it for about 3 months only and it was fine at the time until I upgraded when I changed it a couple of years back, I think it's 30A but thats continous not peak (which is good), I think it's called a Sansun Black edition 600W, I only kept it as a backup for mine should my Thermaltake blow although I would probably need to run my system completly at stock on the Sansun.

Just a heads up guys. I'm selling my -

1090T with the stock cooler &
my 460 GTX Super Overclock as from tomorrow.

Downgrading as I'm in need of cash so expect reasonable prices. The 1090T has a mark/scratch on top of it but is not affected by it at all. Currently overclocked to 4ghz@1.42v and loads at about 54c on my A70 cooler so could easily be pushed more on a better setup.

EDIT - Due to Moonpig's aggressive pricing on his cards. Thanks :) I'm willing to sell my GTX 460 1GB Super Overclock to any UK Clubhouse members @ £95 posted!!

hi guys, been a while since i was here,
on duty tonight,
my shar-pei bitch has just had a litter of pups, so for the next week, the missus and i have to sit up over night, just to make sure they are all feeding and mum doesn't lay on them.

major downer, i was hoping to be able to upgrade my pc, but the bitch had to have a c-section, and it was £400 :cry::cry: so i may wait a while now, or until i sell them ;)

edit, just noticed i am not on list.
so tatty, join me up when you get back

Depends what you want to upgrade - any graphics card above a 5770 would be pretty pointless as your 3Ghz Q6600 is a bottleneck, not to mention your 19" monitor

Id go to his house - beat him up and take his rig. the Q6600 even though its old - still has so much potential. Even cranking it to 3.6 would work wonders for that 5870.

Id go to his house - beat him up and take his rig. the Q6600 even though its old - still has so much potential. Even cranking it to 3.6 would work wonders for that 5870.

you should tie him to a chair and give him the 'Overclocking 101' lecture from top to bottom and break the bad news that speedstep downclocks not overclocks. - tell him to sign up to this forum even. he will learn alot from people on here
