No, the 2nd chip is happy at 4.6ghz 1.36vcore
Not getting anything in like that at all at the mo. I'm going to be selling a couple of bits from my net rig at some point tho.
C2D E2160 (or E2180, cant remember)
2x1GB OCZ Platinum (I think lol)
Aah phew, that's better than what i was imagining Is it the only CPU that has died on you?
Yes, thankfully it unselfishly took all of the pain and sacrificed itself so that the other parts could live on, I got a new board too though it ended up not being that so sold my old one on the bay and kept the new board and CPU
well what are you managing to pick up while on your travels?
Not bad at all then (except for the down-time) good to hear it all worked out for you
Loads of broken phones! I've been keping them for the screens (my excuse for hoarding broken things) Other than that Berlingos and LDV Iveco's. Nothing you'd be interested in
well, If you manage to get to something before they see you coming and trash it. send me a pm
Lol yeah but still said price hike up just didn't say how much and even external drive prices gone up.
Looks like it's time for me to start selling my HDD's...
Wonder how much i could get extort for my 1TB WDC Black
i thought SSD prices would go up as well since they would have less competition from HDD but they seem to be continuing their downward trend
Dont ask me where but i saw an SSD for £1 - 1gb ratio, it was 60gb. Now that is close to a price i would pay for a boot drive.
Going to ask if the dude still has that cpu i was offered, i think they relisted it tho
64GB for £69 but this is a high end drive --> http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crucial-64gb-m4-ssd-2-5-sata-iii-69-99-128gb-135-88-ebuyer-1050944
96GB for £95 here --> Kingston 96GB V+100 2.5" SATA-II SSD - Read.. | Eb...
120GB for £115 on scan's today only page
EDIT:Just noticed sky have upgraded my broadband without telling me, now i have 6Mb with 28ms ping time
those HDD prices make SSDs look value for money
thats how retarded these prices are. Samsung F3 for £212??? bitch plz!
£212 for a slow ass 1Tb HDD that doesnt use half the bandwidth available on Sata II (or sata III)
128Gb Crucial M4 = £145
180Gb Corsair Force3 SSD = £198
still cheaper then a 1TB SSD for those who who need the storage though
You dont need to load all your programs onto an SSD though! Using it as boot with 1 or 2 games on it is more then fine.
Im not looking for an SSD but those are nice prices.
but the point was even though hard drive prices are now incredibly high they still look better then SSD in a lot of scenarios
If you already got a hard drive and were planning to buy another one at this juncture. even paying £130 for a 90Gb SSD is a better idea - Migrate all the boot files over and that saves the hard drive at least 40-50Gb. (40-50Gb is based on W7 ultimate with all current updates with a few regular programs like Office, Roxio/Nero, Paintshop/Photoshop and maybe 1 or 2 more)
I never got an answer back about the cpu, guy resold it on ebay. lol kinda muffed
Considering how these hard drives have exploded, a 500Gig Barracuda 7200.12 for 75 quid aint too bad and they are pretty fast too. Got bored and am scouring the net for deals lol.
Edit: Cancel that, this is an even better deal......
Coming from a guy who owns a Jaguar XF and about 3 or 4 different properties.... Yeah!!! aint bad at all Mr Moneybags.
If they aint so bad why dont you treat some fellow TPU UK members to a few of them?
On a side note....
Tried to put my old back up rig together again and i cant get it to boot in or out of the case. I suspect the board as copped it as graphics card still works...
Not worth buying replacement parts for an AGP rig so i guess i'll sell off whats left for beer money
ordered 5 of the Caviar greens (edited link) 10 minutes ago
Prices are terrible compared to less then a month ago when you could of had a Samsung F3 1Tb for £40.
...but you dont drink beer?
Ridiculous how bad the prices have become but i have a suspicion the prices will take ages to come down next year because hard drive prices where so cheap before the flooding.
Just because I call it beer money doesnt mean i cant spend it on whisky
indeed i nearly bought 2x western digi black 500gigs last month , wish i had now
oh and can i join the club pls.
how much did they cost?
If you want i have a link to a 7200RPM 2TB for £65 and it comes with a free 4GB memory stick
Gut rot lol
Better then premium grade dog piss
I don't want any HDD's sorry, I have about 8 here, I have buyers for the 5 I just bought, £10 profit on each one for me
bought 2x 2TB in the last few days for £80 each, not bad considering when I sell one, will make my money back off it and maybe £20 plus £40 each for 2x 500gb drives I'm trading in and I have got a nice shiny 2Tb drive for fook all
Ive had some nasty whisky in my time, High Commissioner its like drinking petroleum yet the flavour is extremely watery.
EDIT: Im tempted to cash in on the high price of hard drives but i got no buyers.
