    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.

    :p

    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)

    :wtf: is this one of those deals that's never going to materialise, like the RAM you were supposed to send me last week? :laugh:


    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.

    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).

    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! :D

    Ok will check later/tomorrow (works christmas do tonight)

    I just built a budget rig for a friends mother consisting of:

    i3 2100
    1x4GB DDR3
    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.

    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 :laugh:

    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
