Not supposed to link e bay in here so i will PM you.
Sweet! I have the original Galaxy S and I wanted the S2 as it really is an awesome handset, especially with a custom ROM but I'm holding out until a ridiculous phone is released sometime next year.
evenin all, quick question if your mobo and cpu got wrecked as mine have (no post with either though they look to power up) would you risk re using the corsair 850 TX psu that was powering it all on your next, new rig or buy a new one,, i think it works and have tested all volts to be right still but i dont truly know what killed what ,obv its only 6-8 months old (psu)
Well i got this for free off work, my personal upgrade is next year and might get a nexus or whatever is available then
freedom, dual core ftw and 16gb
your reason is far better then mine, i'm holding out till next year because that's when my contract runs out
EDIT:Just hoping there'll be a Galaxy S III by then with one of those new Quad core processors
RMA that PSU, get yourself a new one then sell the one you get back on fleabay
Anyone got a 7.1 sound card they might want to get rid of?
My new 5.1 setup is missing all the cables!!!!
I need to find those pesky sony speaker cables, i think i might go down to maplin and see what they can do for me. Those darn things cost LOADS!
someone got this toys? thomas trains
Willing to trade my amd fx-4100 currently running at 4717ghz stable 24/7
is this one of those deals that's never going to materialise, like the RAM you were supposed to send me last week?
Test the CPU in a different mobo and test the broken mobo with a different CPU. It's very rare that both will die at once, even with a dodgy PSU. I reckon only one of the bits is broken. Yes, I'd still use the PSU; it's common that when Corsair's are dying, they'll making a ticking/buzzing noise. If your Corsair isn't buzzing or ticking, then it's most likely fine.
But of course, I could be completely wrong; I'm just going by the numbers and experience.
If you need an LGA775 CPU to test your mobo with, let me know, I've got some C2D's laying around here doing nowt.
HDDs people! I NEED HDDs! Pleassssseeeeeee
Nice deal on amazon (in the current climate anyway) for a 2tb Samsung F4 Ecogreen £84.50
Need TWO small HDDs for TWO budget builds.
Kiex managed to do me a cracking deal on a WD Blue 500GB for £15 afew weeks back, willing to spend a tad more than that now (as i know how good of a price that was).
Wow that would of been a good deal before the price hikes, thats a fantastic deal!!!
Will keep my ears open, you open to 2.5"? might have a couple of laptop ones about though will need to check the size.
I'm willing for anything.
The important one of the two might get an SSD later (My RMA'ed one), so speed isn't an issue.
Let me know what you have!
Ok will check later/tomorrow (works christmas do tonight)
I just built a budget rig for a friends mother consisting of:
60GB OCZ Vertex Plus (180/90MB/s read/write)
Intel H61 1155 mobo
Xigmatek mATX case
I tell you what it flies for such a budget minded build (£275) and is also quiet as a whisper, using the stock cooler for the i3 as well.
Why would a mother need an SSD?
(yes I jelly)
i just tried to get a new Email address, i never remember having to give out phone numbers to get an account
Luckily Hotmail now let you have as many email addresses as you want with them so i'm just creating a new one through my existing MSN account

What would cause a fan to break in half for no apparent reason?
Tension, crappy materials; heat causing plastics to expand and contract.
I was just using my computer, I leave it for a few minutes, come back, and there is this awful noise.
I then took the side of the case off, and one of the case fans had just cracked all the way down the middle, luckily it was one of those £2 Casecom fans so it's no real loss.
I'm thinking of replacing it with one of these --> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/140mm-bitfenix-spectre-black-fan-orange-led Because they look really nice, and the Fluid Dynamic Bearing should mean it lasts a bit longer then the cheaper ones
My mate was about to pull the trigger on them last night, but they're pre-order. Those numbers are good for a cheap fan - 60cfm @ 18dB. The only other fans we spotted with numbers as good as that was these. 69cfm @ 18dB
Alas, pre-order again
The other colours aren't, but then again i still have 2 case fans left so I'm not exactly in a rush to replace it
I'm just gonna drop Twilight off here. It's yours now, all of it. Have fun with it, my European brethren.
