No, I have 305m of the stuff and I'm trying to work out what to do with it
Yo cheesy, if you advertise it in the BST section, you'll no doubt get some people wanting it. Might take a month or so to pick up, but I reckon people will go for custom length stuff. If you could get some female ends as well as male ends, you could make extensions, which might be popular too.
Oh cheesy, I got a cooler in my FS thread, I'm doing it less than £15. Link to FS thread should be in my sig...
oh yea, there it is!
How is everyone?
skint. and hunting down people who owe me money!
Same here. The skint thing, not the hunting thing I want your Frio aswell! Seems there's loads of people who want it but can't afford. Ach, I wouldn't use it anyway. I'd just look at it or use it as an ornament
Man the rules of writing and examining CV's have changed again! Seems more employers are looking for people straight out of Uni or school, as they're mouldable. I'm gonna write a new CV, say I'm 18 and just left school!
well nothings selling very fast tbh,
I expected my 5850s to go like got cakes but ive still got them after a week. If their still here by the end of next week, im probably gonna go back to the guy who offered me £210 for both, which is a stupid offer but if no one is interested, theres nothing i can do
I would have snatched one of them up if I wasn't jumping to the green ship. I got toooo much to buy
If worst comes to worst, I'll even sell it to CEX. something i dont really want to do as they'll give me £85 for it.
guy who offered me £210 is un willing to budge even to £225
also skint. may try and flog my vast collection of crap that i don't need but for some reason other people may want
edit: freedom, if he won't go to 225, try 215
No i wont. Purely because you can get a 5850 for £100 brand new, (i.e the 5850 Xtreme or the XFX 5850)
My cards arnt the shitty cut down 10" versions. and Id like to think that, that is also a selling point since its also able to clock a lot higher then a 10" card.
when i had the 5850 Xtreme the best OC i could get out of it was 770 on the core and probably 1090 on the ram.
the guy said he wanted to water cool the cards and was asking about my overclocks so, he definitely knows these are good cards. He just doesnt want to pay for them.
Selling desktop parts sure takes time.
Just got this TV on reserve for tomorrow.
just nabbed a secondhand new Aircon unit for £70
Its also not one of them cheap shit brands either. Its the homebase (re-branded Amcor?) one that costs anywhere near as much as £260
I wanted to give the lady £60 for it but she said no. £70 for a new unit still aint bad for something thats only been used twice since purchase.
Picking it up tomorrow as my glorified cab driver doesnt wanna drive after coming off shift today. *shakes my fist angrily* Old men and their cars!! If only i could drive...If only....
i'm on amd...
we got a homebase aircon unit for free, how powerfull is yours
Aircons, heaters, UK is getting expensive to live in.
how is it?, we've never used the air conditioner, we just managed to get a really high end one for free (someone we know had 2 (he works in homebase and got massive discount on them) and gave away the spare)
Oh, not the TRUE, I mean the Xigmatek Dark Knight. The Xiggy comes with AMD mounts.
For £300, there's a couple of 32" Full HD TV's there, not that piddly HD Ready (apparently there's a difference ). They're only LG's, but they look alright.
Cheapest one (£250 without Freeview)
I payed £240 for a full HD 32" tv around christmas. Since then that TV has been down as low as around £180!
I wouldn't spend £300 on a HD-Ready TV. Just sayin Kuro!
Granted mine is some no-name brand but the picture is OK for TV. Sucks as a monitor though, even if it does do 1080p!
I got a 42" Full HD Bush from Argos a year ago, best £400 I spent in a long time! Makes me want to upgrade graphics card though...
i got a sony bravia 32" last Christmas for ~250, unfortunately price does matter with these things, i've seen a lot of TV's but none have matched up to the Panasonic plasma at the moment
Don't get those TV's advertised as 4 colours though, its a rip off as the films are only filmed in 3, all it does is lower the accuracy
one of these for £350. Save £200 on RRP yada yada yada.
*has previously been on sale at £329.99*
its literally this one here but maybe an older model. theyve had it a while but never used it
mine's 12000 BTU
35KG though so its not the most portable of air conditioners, although i've had an idea, would it be possible to attach the pipe from an air conditioner onto your CPU heatsink instead of a fan?
youre thinking back to the days when OCZ had a phase change unit called 'Cryo-Z'
Dude if you were willing to sell your 12000BTU for £70. Id gladly would have taken it off you
you can have it now if you want
but still do you think its possible?
i'm thinking 12000BTU's (whatever they are) all squished into a coolermaster 430 = cold
nah. Ive already agreed to buy it from these folks and your unit aint cheap to ship. the guy im buying from only lives less then 20mins drive away from me
no problems, i'm going to see how cool i can get the PC whilst still using stock coolers, do you think i should just put it it on top of the top inlet fan and see what happens to the temps?, as i don't want to put it onto the CPU fan as i fear i might get condensation
also, just started with boinc again, and since when have the tasks been multithreaded?, it use to be 1 task = 100% load 1 thread, now 1 task = 25% load all threads
